Adel's house experienced a peaceful meal. For Lumie and Raymond, it was just a regular dinner, but for Mr. Adel, that meal was nothing short of hell. At this moment, his eyes could see wisps of black smoke floating around the dishes, making it utterly repulsive. Fortunately, it only appeared briefly in his eyes before disappearing. Otherwise, Mr. Adel might not have dared to put the food in his mouth.Thinking about the wounds on Lumie's hands, Mr. Adel seemed to know what she had put into the food. This wasn't the first time Lumie had cooked for him. He remembered that every six months, he would have a meal personally prepared by Lumie, and at that time, he only felt the warmth of a father-daughter relationship. But now, all he felt was fear and anger.Finally, the meal ended peacefully, and Mr. Adel's face didn't look any better. He used tiredness as an excuse to return to his room. Lumie didn't show excessive suspicion.When Mr. Adel entered the restroom, he hurriedly rushe
Michael's expression changed. "Why did you notice something unusual?"He asked Arthur this way as if his skills were at their peak, and ordinary people couldn't possibly detect anything unusual.Unexpectedly, he had lost to Arthur, which was quite evident.Arthur wasn't an ordinary person.Arthur examined Michael's true face, tearing away the disguise of a mercenary's appearance to reveal Michael, who still had a somewhat elegant demeanor.His fair skin and handsome face made him quite charming.Hearing Michael's question, Arthur replied calmly, "Just a guess."Michael was skeptical but was currently in Arthur's hands, so he didn't dare reveal any weaknesses.He only asked, "Why is my body like this? I can't feel any strength at all."Arthur stood up, looking down at Michael, and explained, "You've just been freed from the curse, and the curse had deeply permeated your body. You woke up this early and even managed to sta
"Boom!" The sound of the door slamming shut made Mr. Adel jump in a split second. The entire mansion seemed to have fallen into an eerie silence, and Mr. Arthur didn't seem to be his usual self.Just then, another light source suddenly appeared in the room, and Mr. Adel recognized it as the laptop left open on the desk. A blue light emanated from it, indicating an incoming call. Mr. Adel quickly approached and answered it.In an instant, a person appeared on the computer screen, and that person was none other than Arthur himself. He was sitting at the desk, dressed in black pajamas, looking remarkably relaxed. He even held a cup of pink tea in his hand, sipping it leisurely, far from the deathbed appearance that had been rumored.Mr. Adel's expression was somewhat speechless, while others around him were filled with fear. In contrast, Arthur appeared entirely at ease."It's only when you're calm and collected that you can take control of the game," Arthur suddenly spoke, and at
Mr. Adel knew he needed to face the impending truth, regardless of how deep his feelings ran. He needed to use his intellect to consider everything.Inside the overflowing file folder were strange decisions, so odd that Mr. Adel felt that he couldn't be the one making these decisions. A person like him readily accepts Raymond, allowing Lumie to participate in the company's activities repeatedly...At this moment, Mr. Adel's mind seemed to flip. He didn't know when he had come to trust and indulge Lumie so much. Or what Lumie's previous appearance was like? His mind felt shrouded in a white fog, unable to recall.Right at this moment, in a place Mr. Adel couldn't see, a white energy stream enveloped him, and then, without hesitation, it shot straight into his forehead as if breaking some kind of chain.Mr. Adel suddenly opened his eyes, his gaze a mix of shock and disbelief.Raymond sat in the CEO's office at the Adel Group headquarters. Just one night, he had risen to such a high
On the morning of the following day, Arthur followed through with his words and arrived at the underground prison.The rebel leader was still held in a particular room, but today, he was no longer bound and had the freedom to move around.His physical health had improved since the previous day, but his spirits appeared low.Dark circles were visible under his eyes, indicating a sleepless night of contemplation.Upon seeing Arthur's arrival, the rebel leader gave a faint smile, his gaze a mixture of weariness and resignation.His current appearance made it clear that he had spent the night deeply contemplating his decision.He also knew why Arthur had come.The rebel leader looked at Arthur and said, "I will cooperate with you. I hope you can lift this curse from me."Arthur, with an unchanging expression, seemed to have already anticipated this outcome.He smiled slightly at the rebel leader, saying, "Very we
The leader remained skeptical of Arthur's words, giving him a suspicious look. "Don't think you can deceive me. You're just trying to sow discord and take advantage of me," he said.Arthur didn't engage in a lengthy conversation with the leader. Instead, he stood up and approached him. He raised his hand and touched the leader's forehead.The leader became apprehensive, but in a moment, his eyes widened, and his pupils seemed to dilate almost to the point of breaking. He could sense that his body was suspended in a peculiar space that inhibited his normal movements, making him feel restrained.Suddenly, a dazzling light appeared before the leader, and instinctively, he closed his eyes. When he opened them again, his perspective had changed. It was now a top-down view.Everything in this view appeared distorted and surreal as if it were not part of the normal world. The leader saw himself tied to the chair, and even his form seemed ethereal in this perspective. A thick, dark mist coile
Lance carried an unconscious man and approached Arthur. As Arthur had instructed, this man was the weakest of them all. He looked at Arthur and said, "It's all taken care of, sir. The others are all dead." Arthur nodded in response.He glanced at the leader lying on the ground, writhing in pain, paying him no attention. "Bring him along too," Arthur said.Lance nodded in understanding and went towards the leader. Before the leader could utter a word, Lance struck him, rendering him unconscious.With one man in each hand, Lance followed Arthur. Arthur glanced at his official vehicle. He furrowed his brows slightly, not particularly fond of waste. Although he had several vehicles like this at home, creating special vehicles took considerable effort and time. It seemed he would have to bother his grandfather when he returned home.Arthur thought to himself and then took out his phone, pressing a certain red button. His distant official vehicle suddenly shook and then exploded.
Arthur's black official vehicle rolled along the streets.Asta's luxurious bar was not located in the city center either.This place was an entertainment resort offering all amenities with a breathtaking sea view.Many prominent figures gathered here, making it seem like a world of its own.Hence, the beach built this hidden bar, featuring a tranquil and somewhat remote atmosphere.Arthur occasionally glanced out the window as their car cruised down the road.The moonlight illuminated the vague silhouettes of two black cars tailing them.It was pretty hasty for a meticulous businessman like Asta to choose such an approach to eliminate him.Asta seemed willing to disregard everything to get rid of him, even resorting to a hurried method.Arthur furrowed his brow slightly and turned to Lance, saying, "Find an opportunity to lure them away."Understanding the plan, Lance nodded and drove calmly, gradually increas
After Arthur and Scarlet left, Lumie looked toward Raymond and smiled, saying, "Let's temporarily forget about them and focus on our main purpose. Do you still remember what I told you?"Upon hearing Lumie's words, Raymond's heart surged with determination, but he still appeared hesitant on the surface. "Is that okay?" he asked.Lumie smiled and looked at him, saying, "That's the only way for me to achieve freedom."Raymond immediately put on a determined expression. "I will do my best, for sure!"Lumie smirked inwardly, then took Raymond's hand and led him inside. People who always considered themselves right were the easiest to manipulate. Because even when used, they still felt like they were using others. Naive to the point of being pitiable...Mr. Adel looked at his daughter, then at Raymond, his deep and mysterious gaze revealing no true thoughts. Just moments ago, Lumie had arrived with the man she loved and requested that he appoint him as a director of the company. Mr.
