Nevertheless, the Third Elder had less chance to get close to Nash to poison him, hence highly likely the person who poisoned him was Lily Lagorio.
“Master White, please rest early. Tomorrow I’ll make an announcement to the entire White family about the competition!”
Master Nash and the others soon left.
At this time, inside the abode where Lily stayed, she was so furious that she could feel anger thrumming through her veins! Her face was ugly.
“Ugh! I’m so pissed off! Our men were ambushing Jack and the others for so many days, just when we gave up on waiting and requested them to return from mission, Jack and the others came! Wasting my time! What an irony!”
Anger welled up in her chest like a tide that she breathed heavily to attempt to calm herself down.
“Man proposes, God disposes! It’s fate!”
The Third Elder had a gloomy look on his face. He then lamented, “The most devastating thing is that when they came back, they killed our right-hand man, Brenton White! Brenton was a fine fighter of a demi-god level! Although he was only at the early stage of the demi-god level, for another person to kill him, the person has to be at least at the intermediate phase of the demi-god level!”
Lily concurred in a confused tone. “It looks like our men were all killed, and I guess the killer is Jack’s friend. It really surprises me that Jack actually knows such an elite fighter! If it weren’t for his friend, that punk would have died by now!”
The Third Elder—Wade White—took a seat next to the table. He remained silent while stroking his beard. “Jack has returned to the White family. It would be harder now to strike at him. And I heard that Butler Titus has arranged a place for them to settle down, not far from the abode of the First and Second elders. His motive is apparent, which is to protect them!”
“Hmph! Unless he stays within the White family residence all the time and does not go out at all, otherwise, kill him as soon as he steps out of the White family residence!”
Lily snorted frostily with her fists clenched and her eyes filled with malice.
“Heh! What if he stays in there forever? That’s even more troublesome!”
The Third Elder cried and laughed at the same time, “I guess Nash White can’t wait to make his son the heir of the White family! Jack has good talent. If the White family gives him full training, Jack will hellishly improve! By that time, I’m afraid that the position to the heir will fall into his hands! Now there are still noises opposing Jack from being the heir because, in everyone’s opinion, Jack’s combat prowess is not that high!”
“Then…then what should we do? We can’t just sit around and hope for the position to fall into our hands, right?”
Worries twisted in Lily’s gut; she looked at Wade with a desperate gaze, hoping that Wade could come up with a solution.
“I think…I think maybe this brat doesn’t truly want to be the heir of this family. He came back here this time most likely for that treasure—Cyro Pearl, so that he could save his friend’s life. That’s why he came back!”
Wade pondered for a little while before saying, “That friend of his is not doing well, isn’t he? Since Jack desires that treasure so much, let’s not let him get it! We must oppose it firmly!”
