“Are you telling me that Roxy is planning to invite a poor brat from the South to have a meal with her?” The expression on Tritus’ face darkened upon hearing the news.
In the heat of the moment, he slammed a teapot that was worth 30 thousand onto the ground, and it instantly shattered into countless pieces. Tritus only continued the conversation after he calmed down a little.
“Who is that person? He’s just the representative from the South for the Holy Doctor Competition, isn’t he? What’s so great about him?” He bombarded Eleanor with a bunch of questions, and she briefly gave him an explanation of the situation.
“Do you think I don’t know how severe Roxy’s condition is? She used to suffer an attack merely from walking a short distance. But now, it’s clear that her condition is much better. She can even jog for a while without any difficulties,” Eleanor added.
Tritus contemplated the woman’s words after hearing what she said. All the wealthy families in Bainbridge knew about Roxanne’s seemingly incurable disease. Some sources claimed that she wouldn’t live past 30 if she didn’t treat the root cause of her issue by then.
Roxanne was a gorgeous woman from the powerful Bane Family, many other families would have proposed marriage to her if it hadn’t been for her illness.
The situation that she was in also allowed Tritus to steal a good deal for himself. He hadn’t expected the sickly Roxanne to show such distinct improvement in her condition, and the thought of it made him excited.
Previously, he had only chased after the woman because of her good looks and her family’s abundant resources. Roxanne was the treasured child of her family, after all.
If he got together with her, he could receive some support from the Bane Family and stand a greater chance of becoming the next head of his own family. More importantly, he had assumed that he could just fool around with Roxanne for a few years until she died before he could openly search for his next partner. This would allow him to have the best of both worlds.
‘But things are a little different now… If Roxy could really recover from her illness, wouldn’t l benefit even more from her? I should immediately propose marriage to her before the men from the other families find out about this. That way, I’ll be the son-in-law of the Bane Family, who is part of the Ten Greatest Families of Bainbridge… If I manage to do that, I’ll definitely become the next head of my family…’
Naturally, Tritus didn’t consider the possibility of Roxanne rejecting him. He was a confident man, after all.
“Mr. Tritus? Mr. Tritus, did you hear me?” Eleanor’s anxious cries disrupted the man’s train of thought.
“Yeah, I’m listening. I had to deal with something earlier. Thank you for telling me about this important information, Miss Eleanor.” He ended the call after that.
“Star Pavilion, right?” Right then, he glanced at the shattered teapot on the ground and realized that he might have acted a little too rashly earlier.
Star Pavilion was one of the top five themed restaurants in Bainbridge. The restaurant’s gorgeous interior made it superior to a lot of the other restaurants around it. It was a high-end restaurant, yet the place was often populated with people and fancy cars. However, it was especially empty on that one particular day.
After hearing that Roxanne had invited Moana for dinner with her at Star Pavilion, Tritus immediately called the restaurant to reserve the entire place for himself.
He arrived at the restaurant a little earlier than dinnertime. By then, his men had already finished decorating the whole place.
Fresh flowers were used to decorate the entrance of the restaurant, and a grand silver carpet had been laid out along the passageway following the front entrance.
Tritus’ men hurried over to him upon noticing his arrival.
“We’ve just made some simple decorations, Mr. Tritus. Later on, we’ll also have some music, fancy lights, fireworks, a shower of flowers…” The subordinate described all of the upcoming surprises to him.
Tritus nodded in satisfaction after hearing the man’s words.
“Good job!” He patted his subordinate on the shoulder.
Everything was set and ready, all that was missing was the woman herself.
