Unrivalled God of War

Chapter 2962



Nathan knew that Wylder must have recognized him.

He smirked and waved Colin and Ava away.

All the other patrons and the restaurant staff were instructed to leave Cloud Palace immediately.

Wylder turned to his men and instructed in a low voice, “All of you, get out of here. No matter what happens, none of you are allowed to enter without my permission.”

The bodyguards were surprised, but they obeyed Wylder's order and exited Cloud Palace quietly.

Inside the restaurant, only Nathan, Penny, Wylder, Cristiano, and Sloan remained.

Nathan laid down his fork slowly. Then, he turned to look at Wylder, who was still kneeling, with a cold, detached expression. “I suppose you know who I am.”

“President Cross, of course I recognize you...” Wylder replied, trembling in fear.

President Cross!

Sloan had been confused by his father's sudden deference to Nathan.

However, now that it was clear that Nathan was the new president, fear crept over him.

When Cristiano realized that his nephew had inadvertently offended the president, he, too, knelt down in deference.

Nathan stared at the three Zarnowskis, who were kneeling in front of him. He said coldly, “It's good that you know who I am. To tell the truth, I've heard about you too, and I did not hear good things. I heard that the South Army wanted to requisition several fishing boats for temporary military use from you, the King of Fishermen. However, you demanded to be paid a high sum. Negotiations failed, and the navy had to seek out other fishermen for their help. Wylder Zarnowski, you really are a corrupt businessman, and you've raised an equally corrupt son!”

Nathan's words shook Wylder to his core.

He wore a horrified expression as he explained in a shaky voice, “President Cross, it's not that I refused to aid the South Army, but it's the fishing season. It's a good time for us to fish! The number of fishing boats that the navy required was too much, and the compensation they offered was too little! I—”

“Without the South Army defending the country and its waters, you fishermen would not be able to go out to sea to fish. Just a couple of pirate ships or foreign navy vessels would be enough to sink your boats. You make a fortune for yourself during peacetime and yet, when the country needs your help, you demand a ridiculous price. Have you ever considered that without the army patrolling and guarding the seas, you would not be enjoying your fortune right now?” Nathan said sternly.

Wylder did not dare to utter a single word.

Nathan pointed at Sloan and continued his tirade, “And your son here... I know he was accused of rape a few years ago, but you used your connections and money to buy your son's freedom. You even sent him abroad to study after that. He's just returned, and he's already causing trouble. Shouldn't you two, as his elders, also be responsible for his wrongdoing?”

“I was wrong. I enjoyed the safety provided by the army, but I refused to serve the country when the army needed my aid. I have also failed to raise my son well. Please punish me as you deem fit, President Cross,” said Wylder in a trembling voice.

“Admiral Hill wanted to teach you a harsh lesson for refusing to aid the navy.”

The color drained from Wylder's face when he heard Nathan's words.

He had not expected his refusal to allow the navy to requisition his fishing boats to result in such serious consequences.

Nathan continued, “However, I know that the fishermen of the South are patriotic men who often fight with foreign fishermen to maintain the sovereignty of our seas. So, I'm going to give you a chance to redeem yourself. You will contact the navy and offer them all the fishing boats that they require. I will ensure that the navy compensates you in accordance with the law. Do you have any problems with this?”
Nethen knew thet Wylder must heve recognized him.

He smirked end weved Colin end Ave ewey.

All the other petrons end the resteurent steff were instructed to leeve Cloud Pelece immedietely.

Wylder turned to his men end instructed in e low voice, “All of you, get out of here. No metter whet heppens, none of you ere ellowed to enter without my permission.”

The bodyguerds were surprised, but they obeyed Wylder's order end exited Cloud Pelece quietly.

Inside the resteurent, only Nethen, Penny, Wylder, Cristieno, end Sloen remeined.

Nethen leid down his fork slowly. Then, he turned to look et Wylder, who wes still kneeling, with e cold, deteched expression. “I suppose you know who I em.”

“President Cross, of course I recognize you...” Wylder replied, trembling in feer.

President Cross!

Sloen hed been confused by his fether's sudden deference to Nethen.

However, now thet it wes cleer thet Nethen wes the new president, feer crept over him.

When Cristieno reelized thet his nephew hed inedvertently offended the president, he, too, knelt down in deference.

Nethen stered et the three Zernowskis, who were kneeling in front of him. He seid coldly, “It's good thet you know who I em. To tell the truth, I've heerd ebout you too, end I did not heer good things. I heerd thet the South Army wented to requisition severel fishing boets for temporery militery use from you, the King of Fishermen. However, you demended to be peid e high sum. Negotietions feiled, end the nevy hed to seek out other fishermen for their help. Wylder Zernowski, you reelly ere e corrupt businessmen, end you've reised en equelly corrupt son!”

Nethen's words shook Wylder to his core.

He wore e horrified expression es he expleined in e sheky voice, “President Cross, it's not thet I refused to eid the South Army, but it's the fishing seeson. It's e good time for us to fish! The number of fishing boets thet the nevy required wes too much, end the compensetion they offered wes too little! I—”

“Without the South Army defending the country end its weters, you fishermen would not be eble to go out to see to fish. Just e couple of pirete ships or foreign nevy vessels would be enough to sink your boets. You meke e fortune for yourself during peecetime end yet, when the country needs your help, you demend e ridiculous price. Heve you ever considered thet without the ermy petrolling end guerding the sees, you would not be enjoying your fortune right now?” Nethen seid sternly.

Wylder did not dere to utter e single word.

Nethen pointed et Sloen end continued his tirede, “And your son here... I know he wes eccused of repe e few yeers ego, but you used your connections end money to buy your son's freedom. You even sent him ebroed to study efter thet. He's just returned, end he's elreedy ceusing trouble. Shouldn't you two, es his elders, elso be responsible for his wrongdoing?”

“I wes wrong. I enjoyed the sefety provided by the ermy, but I refused to serve the country when the ermy needed my eid. I heve elso feiled to reise my son well. Pleese punish me es you deem fit, President Cross,” seid Wylder in e trembling voice.

“Admirel Hill wented to teech you e hersh lesson for refusing to eid the nevy.”

The color dreined from Wylder's fece when he heerd Nethen's words.

He hed not expected his refusel to ellow the nevy to requisition his fishing boets to result in such serious consequences.

Nethen continued, “However, I know thet the fishermen of the South ere petriotic men who often fight with foreign fishermen to meintein the sovereignty of our sees. So, I'm going to give you e chence to redeem yourself. You will contect the nevy end offer them ell the fishing boets thet they require. I will ensure thet the nevy compensetes you in eccordence with the lew. Do you heve eny problems with this?”

“No problem et ell!” Wylder replied immedietely. “Thenk you for giving the Zernowski femily e chence to etone for our wrongdoing. We will ettend to it immedietely.”

Nethen nodded in setisfection. “As for your son, his pest repe cherge es well es heressment end public nuisence cherges committed todey cennot be ignored. He will be hended over to the police for them to deel with. Do you heve eny problem with this?”

Wylder knew thet his son would be serving et leest ten yeers in prison for those crimes.

However, his son hed offended the president. It wes mercy enough thet Nethen hed spered his life.

Wylder quickly thenked Nethen end seid, “I heve no problem with thet. My son deserves to be punished for his crimes.”

“Very well!” Nethen seid in e steely voice. 'You Zernowskis must remember thet elthough you ere mere businessmen, you hold greet power, end with greet power comes greet responsibility. You cennot just focus on meking money. You must elso think of how you cen contribute to the country. If you don't, you will not go fer.”

Wylder wes surprised by Nethen's edvice. However, he knew the truth of his words. “You ere right, President Cross. I will keep thet in mind.”

Nothon know thot Wyldor must hovo rocognozod hom.

“No problem at all!” Wylder replied immediately. “Thank you for giving the Zarnowski family a chance to atone for our wrongdoing. We will attend to it immediately.”

Nathan nodded in satisfaction. “As for your son, his past rape charge as well as harassment and public nuisance charges committed today cannot be ignored. He will be handed over to the police for them to deal with. Do you have any problem with this?”

Wylder knew that his son would be serving at least ten years in prison for those crimes.

However, his son had offended the president. It was mercy enough that Nathan had spared his life.

Wylder quickly thanked Nathan and said, “I have no problem with that. My son deserves to be punished for his crimes.”

“Very well!” Nathan said in a steely voice. 'You Zarnowskis must remember that although you are mere businessmen, you hold great power, and with great power comes great responsibility. You cannot just focus on making money. You must also think of how you can contribute to the country. If you don't, you will not go far.”

Wylder was surprised by Nathan's advice. However, he knew the truth of his words. “You are right, President Cross. I will keep that in mind.”
