Dr. Tony thought for a long time before finally nodding his head. “This is indeed a good idea.”
Inside a manor in Idaho, involved personnel were living on the first floor amongst dozens of rooms. While Lei Yu, the Pope, and some other important people were living on the second floor in the VIP rooms. Even the owner of this castle-like manor had been placed in a small room on the first floor.
There were even some people who were living in tents outside on the lawn since the manor had already reached its limit inside.
At this moment outside the manor, there were still a large number of devout followers silently reciting the contents of the Bible. While still walking around the estate, Lei Yu couldn’t help but to sigh. “The Vatican hadn’t really helped humans with any actual foundation, but they have indeed helped them spiritually to their best effort. Having so many loyal followers was definitely an intangible wealth. It looks like anyone wanting this force to disappear from earth would not be something easy.”
Stretching his upper body, “I should really go back and cultivate now…”
Downstairs inside Hawes’s room – “You fool, you idiot! I created such a good opportunity and you still couldn’t grasp it!”
After hearing the shouts of Mr. Hawes, a weak female voice replied: “He already has a girlfriend. Why do you still want me to get involved? Aren’t you forcing me to become that hateful third-wheel?”
When he heard this, Lei Yu stopped mid-stride. Frowning outside the door, he was listening to the ongoing conversation inside the room.
“Can do something that will help our family for once? As a descendant of the Burlinder family, have you ever considered making some contributions to the family? Can you not see that one day Lei Yu will have amazing achievements? His achievements will definitely bring a lot of glory to our family!” Hawes sighed and continued saying: “I don’t care what methods you use but you have to capture Lei Yu’s heart. As for his girlfriend Ai Er, I will find someone to get rid of her so that he can completely forget about her. His girlfriend is an ordinary person and she is living in our castle, so finding an opportunity to take care of her will be a piece of cake!”
“You are crazy!” Lafayette was shocked; she never expected that her own father would make such a decision. Was this still the polite and friendly father who was the Vatican’s Bishop?
“I’m not crazy. If we can smoothly resolve this situation with the Dark Council, then Lei Yu will become someone that is recognized by everyone in the world. Don’t forget the heavy-handed actions he used in the Kou country had already caused many people to pay attention to him. So for now, just get close to him and seize the opportunity when it appears. Do you really want him to slip through your fingers?” Said Hawes in a hysterical manner.
“No! I will not do what you’ve just said! You are nuts, are you still even my father?” Lafayette shook her head as she shouted. “Ai Er is so gentle and her feelings with Lei Yu are on such deep levels, why would you treat her like that? This isn’t fair. Just because of your ambitions, you’re willing to erase someone’s life. This is something I, absolutely will not be a part of!”
“Pak!” A loud slap was heard. After that, one could only hear Lafayette’s sobbing and Hawes’s loud breathing.
Lei Yu heavily exhaled as his heavy footsteps went up to the second floor.
Coincidentally, Ai Er had just finished taking care of Mrs. Hawes tasks and was returning to her room.
“Brother Yu, what’s going on?” Asked Ai Er when she saw that Lei Yu’s expression was a bit weird.
“Nothing much, I just feel like I do not really like this place anymore.”
“What happened?” Ai Er gently held onto Lei Yu’s arm and asked in a soft voice.
After he gently stroked Ai Er’s hair, they both entered the room. “I don’t really want to hurt others but there are times when it can’t be avoided. I have to protect the ones who are close to me, so sometimes it’s necessary to target them without prejudice to deal with the issue.”
Ai Er couldn’t really understand what Lei Yu was trying to say, but she still nodded in confusion. Gently kissing Ai Er’s lips, “Go to bed soon, I will head back to my room and cultivate.”
Everything seemed to be concentrated in one area now. On the other side, a Lamborghini sports car was being driven on the open road. Its destination was the other side of the U.S., a small town in the State of Idaho.
Although with his eyes closed, Lei Yu still couldn’t concentrate enough to enter a cultivating state. He simply lay on the ground so that he could completely relax. The direct contact with the cool floorboards under his bare back made him sober up, as he carefully considered how to deal with this family.
Lei Yu wasn’t too concerned when this family concealed their identity and tried to set him up because in a manner of speaking, it had benefited him. But now it was different, right now Hawes had harmful intentions against the closest person to him which made lei Yu reconsider everything.
“Should I give up the cooperation with the Vatican? No! This isn’t a wise path; I can’t screw up all my plans just because of one person’s (Hawes) ulterior motives. Doing this is no different than something that a naive child would do. But I will always worry about Ai Er’s safety if we stay here so what can I do?” Lei Yu was rolling back and forth, his mind coming up with numerous countermeasures but he would then reject them one at a time.
“Donk, donk, donk!” Lei Yu heard knocking on the door. He quickly put on a shirt before opening the door.
“Lafayette?” Lei Yu was surprised when he looked at her face, it was clear she had just recently cried.
“Lei Yu, can I say a few words to you?”
“It’s… it’s too late right now, how about we talk about this tomorrow? Moreover, Ai Er is right next door so wouldn’t it be a bit inappropriate if she finds out?” Lei Yu didn’t want to point out what he had just overheard. After all, Lafayette stood firm in front of her father and displayed her virtuous side. She was now the only person in the Burlinder family that Lei Yu had a favorable impression of.
“I’m begging you, just let me come in okay? I really have something important to tell you.”
After he saw Lafayette’s pleading look, Lei Yu nodded helplessly. “Fine then…”
After entering the room, Lei Yu deliberately left a gap in the door so that it wouldn’t fully close. Standing in front of Lei Yu, Lafayette was looking at Lei Yu’s disheveled clothes before she lightly bit her lips. “I’m sorry Lei Yu; I really do like you a lot.” After saying that, she immediately wrapped her arms tightly around Lei Yu.
“I don’t want to hurt you so I advise that you to let go of your arms.” Lei Yu appeared very calm and didn’t show any abnormal behaviors due to her actions.
“No! I’m not letting go! I only want to be by your side. Whatever Ai Er can do for you, I can also do it as well. I only hope that you will accept my love for you!” Lafayette’s voice was slightly trembling. One thing Lei Yu understood was that Mr. Hawes made her do this. But what method did he actually use to coerce Lafayette into doing it? This was the unknown.
