The banquet continued.
Levi was curious about the prince and Chyntia’s relationship, so he asked, “Now that you’ve mentioned it, how did you and Chyntia get to know each other? To tell you the truth, I never imagined you two would become friends.”
Since he asked, the crown prince did not hide it from him and told him how he, his mom, and Chyntia got to know each other.
“That’s great. I was worried you might not have any friends!”
After hearing that, the crown prince instantly rebuked, “With my status and attractiveness, the number of people wanting to be my friend could circle the Six Southern States and back. It’s because I don’t want to be their friend!”
Once he said those words, the others all burst out laughing.
After finding out that Chyntia and the mother-son duo had a close relationship, Levi maintained his smile but did not say anything more, making his thoughts inaccessible to the others.
A few drinks later, he excused himself from the table, saying he had some matters to deal with. Therefore, only Layna, the crown prince, and Poison Spider were at the table.
While looking at the spread of delicious food, Layna descended into deep hesitation.
The previous Layna Sandel had now become Madam Quirk, while the Sandel Family, which used to be well-known throughout all the states, had declined to the point that others were gradually forgetting them.
However, Layna would never forget the young woman who stood up for her back in Bainbridge because she would have lost her life long ago if it had not been for her.
Of course, there was also that resolute figure of the man who was always utterly kind and gentle. Even now, she could still hear his words echoing in her mind.
“I think you have the talent. How about I acknowledge you as my apprentice? Once you’re strong enough, no one can bully you ever again.”
That was right!
The man was Shane Larson, Layna’s master. He not only taught her how to cultivate but also taught her to be strong, and the young woman back then was Shane’s wife.
Layna wanted to use the rest of her life to repay the kindness the couple had shown her, but things had changed. Before she could take action, the previous Larson Family, who were on par with the Nolan Family, was wiped out overnight.
After that tragic incident, she was devastated and thought she would never have the chance to repay the couple. However, she did not expect they still had a son, Morten.
Despite not having done the last step in their marriage, Layna and Levi had been together for many years, so she naturally knew his thoughts.
‘lf Chyntia can no longer cultivate, his life won’t be at stake, but his only choice will be to become an obedient money-making tool for Levi and lose his freedom… As Master Shane’s only son, Chyntia bears the last wishes of the thousand deceased souls of the Larson Family. Anyone can lose their power but him!’
As she thought of that, she came out of her daze. “Prince, I think you should lessen your encounters with Morten.”
Even Poison Spider did not expect her godmother to say such a thing!
Meanwhile, the straightforward crown prince immediately asked without thinking, “Why is that? We’re good friends.”
“No particular reason. Chyntia doesn’t know what’s good for him and even dares to go against Master Levi’s wishes. It’s better if you stay away from such a person.” Her words were a test with double entendre.
If they agreed, they would think she was helping Levi, if they did not, it would be precisely what she wanted because it meant they would stand by Astor, even if it meant going against Levi.
People who had a strong relationship with Chyntia were the ones she could trust wholeheartedly. She could not be involved in some matters because Levi’s subordinates were always watching her.
Of course, she would understand if the mother-son duo decided to stay away from Chyntia because of this, but her relationship with them would no longer be this close. After all, the descendant of her saviors was the most important person to her.
Faced with such a question, the crown prince gazed at his mom. Then, she nodded, indicating that she allowed him to make his own decision, which she would unconditionally support.
