Chapter 1266 The Quest for Revenge Goes On
Despite the power of the West Lucozia Mansion, it couldn’t act arbitrarily under the Emperor’s jurisdiction. Moreover, this matter was a taboo, and the mansion couldn’t get involved openly.
“I understand, thank you, Aunt Elara, for your help.”
Dustin stood up and bowed respectfully.
The information provided by Elara was extremely important to him. It wasn’t just about uncovering the truth; the most important reason was that he had gained another relative.
“We’re all family; there’s no need to be so polite.”
Elara quickly extended her hand to help Dustin up and earnestly advised, “Logan, I won’t stop you from seeking revenge, but I hope you can understand that one thought can lead to either becoming a devil or attaining enlightenment. Don’t lose sight of your original intention, and don’t let down the people around you.”
“I will always remember Aunt Elara’s advice,” Dustin nodded.
“Big Brother Logan, if there’s anything you need in the future, just ask. I promise to help you get it done!” Thorian patted his chest, looking very generous.
From addressing her as Princess to Aunt Elara, the change in their titles indicated that they had grown closer.
“It’s okay, you don’t need to worry about my matters. Focus on taking care of yourself, and don’t make your mother worry,” Dustin reminded him.
“Brother, you underestimate me. After all these years, I’m no longer a child. I can handle things on my own now!” Thorian put his hands on his hips, looking confident.
“Alright, alright, don’t show off in front of me. Do you think I don’t know what kind of person you are?” Dustin rolled his eyes.
“Heh! Underestimate me? One day, I’ll achieve something great and make you proud!” Thorian raised his head proudly, displaying an air of arrogance.
“Sure, sure, I’m already proud of you.”
Dustin nodded dismissively, then turned his gaze to Elara and said, “Aunt Elara, you’ve traveled a long way, and I’m sure you’re tired. I’ve already arranged the guest rooms. Please rest for a while.”
“Now that you mention it, I am a bit tired. I’ll go back to my room and lie down for a while. You can focus on your tasks,” Elara smiled and nodded, then took her leave with Thorian.
After leaving the meeting room, Thorian suddenly stopped and his smile faded.
“What’s wrong?” Elara turned back, feeling curious.
“Mom, why did you tell my brother about Lorenzo’s information?” Thorian asked.
“Isn’t that what Logan wanted?” Elara said.
“Do you know about my brother’s obsession? By giving him this information, you’re encouraging him to go to Stonia. What is your purpose in doing this?” Thorian questioned.
“Thorian, what nonsense are you talking about? I don’t quite understand,” Elara said with a puzzled expression.
“Why would you want to harm my brother?” Thorian’s tone became sharp.
“What do you mean, I want to harm your brother?” Elara frowned.
“Thorian, I’m not just the Princess, but also Logan’s stepmother. We’re all one family, and we should help each other. How could I harm him? Where did that idea came from?” Elara questioned.
“It’s probably just some baseless rumors,” Thorian replied, then gave his mother a deep look and said, “Mom, I’m a bit tired. I’m going back to my room to rest. See you tomorrow.”
With that, he walked away.
Watching Thorian’s retreating figure, Elara couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow, “What could he be thinking?”
