Charleston immediately became angry.
“B*stard! What do you mean by that Are you trying to sow discord between us”
Steele, dont be angry.
Im just saying what I think! That day, when I returned home and checked the surveillance cameras, I realized that although Jordan caused my mothers death, he didnt do it on purpose.
“My mother wanted to control his mind, but she suffered a backlash.
Her body was already quite weak, so she died.
For this reason, I can forgive Jordan and not make a fuss about him causing my mothers death.
But in return, you have to stop your plan to use the other families to deal with me.
Tomorrow, you have to take back what you said at todays meeting! Deal”
Charleston considered this proposal very carefully.
Jordan did not purposely murder Shauns mother.
She was killed by the backlash from trying to take over Jordans mind.
As such, Jordan could not be held responsible.
As long as Charleston turned a blind eye to the matter between the Handley and Schmid families, the Steeles and Handleys would stay out of each others way.
It was a good thing for everyone.
Charleston thought for a moment.
“Alright then, tomorrow, I will take back my suggestion to hold next years meeting in your castle!”
I knew you were a smart person.
Its getting late.
I should go.”
Having achieved his goal, Shaun stood up to leave.
Charleston suddenly felt a little guilty.
He quickly said, “Mr.
Handley! Theres one more thing.
I hope you can let Lota off! Dont hurt her!”

Shaun turned and gave a strange smile.
“Hehe, I watched Lota grow up.
I love her more than anyone else.
You should take care of your own family.
You dont have to worry about mine! Goodbye!”
With that, Shaun turned and left.
Charleston couldnt help clenching his fists.
Shaun was really arrogant to dare to speak to him like this! From his words, it was clear that it was only a matter of time before Shaun snatched this girl away.
After Shaun left, Jordan returned with Lota, holding her cold hand.
Jordan asked, “Grandpa, how was it”
Charleston said slowly, “He admitted that he is Shaun Handley! But how did he manage to control Tom Schmid If he canpossess us, then everyone from the secret families would have already become his puppets.
He shouldnt have reached that level yet.”
“I believe it has something to do with the accessories that Tom is wearing.
Grandpa, did you notice that Tom and his wife have a lot of accessories on them, especially on their necks, ears and hands Moreover, they look like ancient tribal accessories.
Theyre made of stones, beads and so on.
Theyre not Chanel or diamonds.”
The Handleys are from New Orleans and that place is well-known for the occult.
Looks like the Handleys gave those accessories to Tom and his wife.
Jordan, you have to be careful when you go out in the future.
Dont let strangers get close to you.
Otherwise, if the Handleys managed to place those accessories on you, you might be controlled by them!”
Jordan said, “I will, Grandpa.”
Charleston sighed and looked at the pallid-looking Lota.
“Lota, I have to apologize to you.
I promised you that I would get the other families to go to Switzerland together next year to help save your parents.
However, I have to go back on my word now.
I have to rescind my proposal at tomorrows meeting.”
Lota immediately felt despair.
“You dont plan to help me”
Jordan was also very agitated.
“Grandpa, why do you have to rescind it Why did you agree to that b*stards demands Did he threaten you”
Charleston sighed and did not answer.
How to tell them that he had done so in exchange for Jordans safety
However, moments after her question, Lota was very sensible.
She said softly, “I understand.
Handley is so powerful.
You dont have to offend them for an outsider like me.
You have already done a lot for me, Im very grateful.
Im very tired.
Ill go back to my room and rest first.”
Jordan had never seen Lota in such despair before.
He couldnt bear it!
Jordan followed Lota to her room.
He took Lotas hand and explained, “Lota, trust me.
Were not going to leave you in the lurch.
Were not the kind of people who would only protect ourselves and not care about others.”
Lota no longer had the strength to talk to Jordan about this.
She took off her coat and shoes and climbed onto the bed to sleep.
But Jordan hugged her from behind!
Although Jordan was used to jostling around with her in a brotherly manner, he had never dared to hug her so intimately.
He knew that if he hugged her like this, he would definitely be tempted.
After all, he was a normal man and Lotas figure was just too good.
Jordan didnt want to take advantage of her.
He just wanted to hug her to show how much he cared about her!
He cared about her as a family member!
He was not afraid of getting into trouble!
Jordan pressed his left cheek against Lotas right cheek.
“Lota, believe me.
I promised you that I would save your parents from Shaun and let you reunite with them.
I will keep my word! I dont care what my grandfather thinks.
I will never disappoint you!”
Lotas tears flowed again.
“Thank you, Jordan…”
Lota threw herself into Jordans arms.
Jordan gently coaxed her to sleep before he went to find his grandfather.
Jordan was a little unhappy.
“Grandpa, why did you agree to Shauns request We already promised to help Lota!”
Charleston took a sip of his tea.
“First, tell me how Shauns mother died.”
Jordan was momentarily stunned.
He had indeed hidden the truth about Shauns mothers death when he reported the incident to his grandfather.
As it involved the Deity, something that could affect the entire world, Jordan did not dare to casually reveal everything.
Charleston said, “Just now, Shaun told me that his mother died due to a backlash.
You didnt purposely kill her.
Why did you hide this from me Dont you trust me”
Jordan hurriedly lowered his head and said respectfully, “I wouldnt dare! This matter… is too… strange.
I dont know if its true or not.
I was afraid of making you worry, so I didnt say anything.”
Charleston said anxiously, “Dont worry about that.
Tell me what happened between you and Shauns mother in the castle that day!”
