They were going to go back to Chanaea, but as they were going to come back here in the future, Vinson did not ask the men he brought along with him to return to Chanaea as well. Instead, he assigned them to heed Harvey’s instructions for the time being.
The people they had brought back from the base had already been taken away to be imprisoned by the men Aaron hired. Once Nancy was caught, they would be able to charge those people guilty of their crimes.
However, they were bringing Cindy, who had been captured by Nancy’s men earlier, along with them.
At the start, Cindy planned to use Arielle’s identity to blackmail Nancy to send her to Manchernius, but after Nancy caught wind of her plans, Cindy was locked up in the house behind the palace by Monisha.
Now that Arielle and Vinson were heading back to Chanaea, they decided to take Cindy along so that the law could sentence her to life imprisonment for her crimes.
To ensure that Cindy would not cause any ruckus, Arielle fed her a special kind of drug.
“Sannie, we’ll be taking a cruise ship back this time. The flights have been halted for three days, and we’re taking the ship because the matters in the company need urgent attention. After reaching Lightspring by ship, we’ll then take a flight back to Chanaea.” Vinson had wanted to take a flight back, but unexpectedly, all flights had been paused. Hence, he decided to take a cruise to another city first.
Arielle had no objections to that as long as they reached their destination in the end.
Their original plan was only for the two of them to return, but Lorraine insisted on tagging along.
“You’re not fully recovered yet. Once you‘ve healed up, go to Sonia’s place to stay,” Arielle said, trying to convince her otherwise.
However, Lorraine shook her head. “This is nothing but a scratch. I’ve been hurt more badly than this in the past, so I’m going to go back with you.”
If anything were to happen, she would be able to protect Arielle if she was beside her.
Arielle had no choice but to agree to it at Lorraine’s insistence. Thus, she asked Vinson to buy Lorraine’s ticket as well.
When they were about to leave, Harvey, Sonia, Aaron, and Xavier came to send them off.
“Ari…” Sonia tea red up as she hugged Arielle, refusing to let her go.
She seemed like an entirely different person in comparison to when Arielle first met her.
“You’re already a mother, but you’re still a crybaby?” Arielle patted her back in consolation. “I’ll be coming back not long after.”
Sonia finally let go of Arielle in embarrassment. “Don’t forget to call me after you go back.”
Arielle nodded. She would certainly do that.
Xavier temporarily could not return because of Lana’s matters. Furthermore, he was the only member of his family, and Lana’s family all resided there. He had made up his mind about staying here with Lana once the laws changed.
Vinson and Arielle gave him their blessings.
“Aaron, he’s my friend. He’s a detective, so you can contact him if you ever need his services,” Vinson said to Aaron.
Since Xavier seemed to have plans of staying there long-term, Vinson felt that it would be good to introduce him to Aaron.
Xavier never expected that Vinson would introduce him to the current king. Still, that was good news for him.
Lana’s family had known yet to learn about his relationship with Lana. With Aaron as an associate, perhaps Lana’s parents would object less to their relationship.
“Hello, I’m Xavier, a detective. Please feel free to contact me any time if you need my help.” As Xavier spoke, he took out a business card and handed it to Aaron.
Aaron did not expect to meet a detective around, but he was pleasantly surprised.
As he took the card, he said, “Of course. I’ll contact you if I need your services.”
Soon, it was time for them to part ways. After Arielle and Vinson said their farewells, they boarded the ship with Lorraine and Cindy.
“It’s time to go back.” Arielle waved.
The ship began moving. In the blink ofan eye, the people on the land turned into small black dots until they vanished from the horizon.
Meanwhile, in a car, someone was watching the departing ship with hatred in their eyes.
