Chapter 52: Scared Away by Your Demeanor!
Benjamin had the entire village turned upside down, but they still couldn’t find Martina’s
It was clear that Martina had hidden herself very well. Continuing like this wouldn’t lead. to any significant progress, and it might even backfire.
Furthermore, there were villagers deliberately trying to confuse the situation. A villager said, “We’ve already said there’s no one here, but you just don’t believe it. What are you
people even doing?”
“Our people have been always simple and honest. We’ve never encountered people as unreasonable as you. Is this how you behave when you get along with others outside?”
“With your aggressive attitude, I doubt anyone would find you likable. If you ever pursue a girl, I’m afraid she would be scared away by your demeanor.”
Originally, the villager was just talking, but he unexpectedly hit a nerve. Instantly, Benjamin’s face turned extremely gloomy, as if he could explode at any moment.
Simon and Leslie immediately took a step back in fright.
These villagers truly had no fear of the unknown. They dared to speak like this in front
of their boss. Didn’t they know that Miss Martinez ran away because of this?
But now that someone had directly said it out loud, it was truly difficult to accept. Especially for the boss, he must be filled with intense anger at this moment.
Simon and Leslie certainly didn’t dare to approach at the moment, fearing that they would bring upon themselves great disaster.
It had long been said that no one dared to provoke Benjamin, not even his closest
assistants or subordinates.
It was precisely because of their close proximity that they understand Benjamin’s character even more. The words spoken by the villager now felt like an inevitable death
Life and death were just a matter of time, and even the other villagers had noticed that something was not right. Although they didn’t pay attention to Benjamin’s emotional changes, they subconsciously rubbed their own arms.
The villager muttered to himself, “What’s going on? Why does it suddenly feel so cold? Could it be changing weather?”
Benjamin calmly approached the villager who spoke, his large hands with prominent bones gently resting on the villager’s shoulder. Instantly, a sense of oppression and icy coldness loomed over the villager.
“What did you just say?” he asked.
It seemed as if he hadn’t heard clearly what was said earlier, but with Benjamin’s sharp hearing, how could it be possible for him to not hear clearly?
Simon cast a silent glance at the villager, hoping that he wouldn’t push the boundaries and refrain from discussing things they shouldn’t.
Unfortunately, the villager never thought that far ahead and had no idea what they were
about to face.
He calmly responded, “I said with a temper like yours and such an unpleasant expression, you’ll definitely have a hard time finding a girlfriend in the future!”
Simon felt as if his heart had exploded into pieces.
Even if this village was relatively backward, they should still be able to see someone’s
Benjamin indeed tightened his fist, and it looked like he was about to throw a punch. Simon was instantly horrified and desperately wanted to come up with a good plan! If Benjamin really started throwing punches, even with all the people present combined, they probably wouldn’t stand a chance.
Simon shouted in his heart, “Miss Martinez, where are you exactly? Can you at least
make a sound?”
Lately, the boss had been acting completely unlike himself, as if he had become a different person, and it was all because of Miss Martinez!!
But for some unknown reason, just when everyone thought Benjamin would start attacking, he instead retracted his temper and the cold aura he had just displayed.
This left everyone speechless. Based on Benjamin’s normal character and reaction, he should have beaten this person to a pulp.
But actually, even Simon hadn’t seen his boss throw a punch in a long time.
The boss had always been someone who avoided getting personally involved. He excelled at being in complete control and ensuring a sure victory.
At this moment, the villager finally realized that something was amiss and was so scared that he hastily retreated several steps, barely daring to breathe.
Perhaps due to an overly exaggerated reaction, he accidentally tripped over his left foot with his right foot, and ended up falling down.
In pain, they exclaimed, “Oh my goodness, that scared the life out of me…” Benjamin merely gave him a cold glare before retracting his gaze.
Maybe others couldn’t understand, but only Benjamin himself knew it clearly: Martina was already angry, that’s why she chose to leave. If he were to do something that would make Martina even angrier, it would only backfire in the end.
Even if Benjamin was furious, he still had some rationality because of Martina.
Benjamin cast a deep gaze towards the village and finally spoke coldly. “Let’s go.”
Just as they came in a grand and imposing manner, they left in the same way. They came and left in a hurry, leaving everyone dumbfounded. What happened?
Did they really just say they were leaving?
The villagers found it hard to believe that they would be willing to leave, considering that Benjamin had brought such a large group of people here in search of someone, but
In front of everyone’s eyes, Benjamin actually left with all the people behind him.
Even Leslie couldn’t quite understand and quickly asked, “Boss, are we really leaving like
He didn’t directly say the rest of his thoughts, but those who understood the situation didn’t need any explanation. They had finally found a clue, and if they missed it, there might not be another opportunity like this.
And Leslie had missed countless opportunities, always hovering on the edge of finding Martina, but had never succeeded.
He had a sixth sense that he would definitely succeed this time.
But why did the boss choose to leave suddenly? Did it mean that even the boss believed that Martina didn’t exist in that place at all?
Then why did those people react so unusual? Wasn’t their reaction a clear sign of their inner panic? It was something everyone knew.
Unfortunately, no one understood what Benjamin really thought, let alone being able to figure it out.
Leslie and the others couldn’t do anything but follow Benjamin and leave that place. Some villagers were so scared that they almost wet their pants, especially the children who were too frightened to speak.
