The simple family banquet of the Ito family marked a turning point for their future.
Jagoan had decided that she would focus all her energy on achieving greatness in martial arts. Meanwhile, Yuhiko Ito was determined to find a professional manager who could run the Ito family’s business while he focused on shaping its development behind the scenes. This way, Jagoan wouldn’t be distracted by the family business anymore.
This father and daughter were filled with a sense of excitement for the future, and Jagoan finally understood what was truly important. It wasn’t about whether she could achieve something with Jagoan in the future. What mattered most was that if she worked hard at martial arts, she could always be by Jagoan’s side for a long time to come.
The next day, the Lord of the Evans family, Samuel Evans in Willow Estates, slept soundly until after eight o’clock, feeling as though he hadn’t slept that well in twenty years. His wife Eleanor was still sleeping, having visited many places in the city to search for clues after visiting Deana yesterday.
Samuel Evans sat alone at his desk in front of the window, using pen and paper to write something. An hour later, his wife woke up feeling relaxed and comfortable, her breathing smoother than before.
She noticed Samuel writing and asked, “Samuel, what are you writing?”
He turned to her and replied, “Writing down what I remember from yesterday.”
His wife’s nerves were immediately on edge, and she asked, “And what do you remember?”
Samuel’s expression was serious as he said, “I seem to remember everything…”
The Lady was surprised and asked, “You remember the whole day? What happened in the morning?”
Samuel nodded, “When I got up, you asked me how I was resting. I said I hadn’t slept that well in years, and maybe I was tired from the flight the day before. You were surprised and asked me what else I remembered.”
Excitedly, the Lady asked, “What happened next? Do you remember?”
Samuel replied, “You took me to see Desmond and Jack, and suggested that I try to remember everything and replay the memories today to see how much I remember. Then everyone discussed whether it was the environment of Willow Estates that improved me or the metaphysics of this villa that played a role.”
The Lady was dumbfounded and said, “It sounds like you remember everything!”
Samuel nodded seriously and said, “I don’t feel any fault, but I don’t have much impression of what happened a while ago.”
