Sending a Letter
“He deserves to die!” Marana growled in rage.
Akilah and Raven nodded immediately.
I could feel their burning hatred and their desire to tear this old man to pieces. After all, he was the reason why their brother was injured.
However, I stopped them from attacking.
“… Right now, it’s not the time.” I said.
Marana, Akilah, and Raven looked at me with dissatisfied expressions. However, I remained unmoved.
“Killing that old man right now is bad. Taking care of the aftermath of something like that will be too troublesome, and it could put our entire plan at risk.”
Marana, Akilah, and Raven bit their lips after hearing my words. They seemed like they wanted to refute my words, but in the end, they stayed silent.
They knew that I was right. If we killed this old man here, the party behind the coup d’eta will be alerted, and perhaps even the emperor would be alerted.
It meant that our entire plan would be jeopardized.
Of course, there are ways to kill this old man without raising suspicious, but they are very troublesome. It’s much easier to wait a few days.
“How about this,” I spoke to the girls. “I will put a mark on him and on his subordinates. On the day of the Emperor’s Birthday, I will tell you their location and leave them to the three of you. Do you like that arrangement?”
The three sisters looked at each other before nodding reluctantly.
“But you can’t stop us that day no matter what.” Akilah glared at me, still dissatisfied. “It doesn’t matter if we make a scene.”
Hey girl, what are you planning?
I rolled my eyes and nodded. “I promise, I won’t interfere.” However, I made sure to look at Raven and Marana while I was speaking.
The meaning of my gaze was ‘don’t let your sister go too far’.
The two of them seemed to understand my meaning because Marana shook her head exasperatedly and Raven nodded with a serious look.
Now that we knew who was behind the attacks against the Red Skull Gang, we returned to the gang’s headquarters.
Akilah was still in a bad mood after being unable to kill the old man, so she went to train as soon as she returned, and Raven went with her.
Marana was planning to train as well. However, I stopped her before that.
“Help me with something first, please.” I smiled and gave her a letter.
“This is?” Marana asked confused.
“Give it to Christine Hera. I think that you know who she is.”
Marana frowned for a moment before looking at me with a doubtful look.
“Christine Hera… She was the previous fiancée of the crown prince, right? I think that she lost her right as fiancée when her family was found guilty of cooperating with daemons.”
“She is the one.”
Marana nodded and looked at me with a strange expression.
“… Boss, why do you want to give her this letter?”
“Nothing much. Just give her the letter. She will know what to do.”
Marana stared at me suspiciously, but she nodded in the end.
Well, she was my subordinate, after all. So obeying my orders was her duty.
After leaving the letter with Marana, I teleported back to my mansion.
That letter is the last thing that I need to do before the Emperor’s Birthday. The last piece of my revenge.
I’m sure that my sister-in-law will visit me after seeing it.
After all, she is unable to ignore the content inside it.
That letter means that I’m aware of it.
‘I know that you did it.’
That she was the one behind Alver’s assassination.
‘I wonder what will happen if it’s made known that you tried to kill a prince.’
Right now, Christine is no longer the crown prince’s fiancée. She is nothing more than a commoner.
‘A fallen noble trying to kill a prince. What a story.’
Her family was accused of betraying the Empire. That made the fact that she tried to kill me more credible.
‘I guess you will end in prison just like your entire family.’
However, Christine can’t allow that. Not when her family is still in prison.
‘So, I have a proposal for you. I’m sure that you will be interested in it.’
In these circumstances, Christine will have only one option.
‘Why don’t you come to see me? We will discuss it.’
She won’t have more options but to come to see me.
‘With love, your dear brother-in-law.’
Now, let’s see how far this girl is planning to go to get revenge.
With a smile on my face, I waited for her reply.
And the reply came sooner than I thought.
The next morning, a letter came to my mansion with just a sentence written on it.
‘Where are we going to meet?’
I read the letter and put on a playful smile.
And the last piece is here.
