“Luca Caden?” Noah froze.
“Mhm.” Thea nodded. “I want to know everything about him before sunset. You’re dismissed.”
Noah did not linger for long and turned to leave.
Once he left the hotel room, his body went limp. After a long while, he stood up wearing a grim expression. He was weighing his options and whether he should reveal Thea’s orders to the Leader.
However, after thinking about it, he believed that this should not be anything serious. Thus, he decided against telling him.
Then, he swiftly left and began investigating Luca Caden.
Meanwhile, Thea waited in the hotel.
Noah was efficient. Soon, he returned.
“Young Mistress, here’s everything you need.”
Thea took the documents and scrutinized them.
Luca Caden was a son of Bennett Caden and an uncle of Thomas and Tobias. After failing to compete against Lorenzo for the position of Patriarch, he left the Capital when he was defeated and had only. returned recently.
The information showed that Luca was a seventh-rank grandmaster. However, this was only known through official means. No one knew his true strength. Not only that, it was revealed that he had four powerful experts working for him. They were all fourth-rank grandmasters.
Looking through these documents, Thea waved slightly. “You’re free to go.”
Noah looked at Thea and asked, “Young Mistress, why are you investigating Luca Caden?”
Thea stared at him and said coldly, “Mind your own business.”
Noah hurriedly left.
Thea got up and headed to the balcony.
Since this was the twenty-eighth floor, she could see the bustling city in the distance..
“Luca Caden…” she murmured. “Should he be exterminated?”
She was hesitant.
Luca was Bennett’s son and an uncle of Thomas and Tobias. He was an elder treated with respect within the Caden household.
What would she do if James blamed her for Luca’s death?
What would she do if Sir Caden put the blame on her?
However, Luca was an obstacle in Maxine’s way of becoming the family head. How would Maxine secure her position if she did not get rid of him? How could she help James out without Maxine securing her position as the family head?
Thea was in a bind. She was unable to make up her mind.
“He has to die!”
After deep thought, her face darkened.
However, she had to keep this a secret from James and the others.
Once she changed, she left the room after putting on a mask.
At the Cadens…
Luca was having a discussion with many important figures in the family..
“Grand Patriarch, to end this once and for all, Maxine will have to die!”
Some suggested getting rid of Maxine.
An elderly man around seventy years of age was in the lead. He was wearing an ancient costume. Wearing a frustrated look on his face, he said, “I would have killed her long ago if I could. However, Lorenzo definitely won’t let this slide.”
“What should we do, then?”
“There’s no need to rush things. She doesn’t stand a chance against me. Let’s just toy around with her for now…”
At that moment, a gust of wind blew the door open.
“What happened? Where did the wind come from?”
Everyone was puzzled.
