Faye expressed her joy instantly upon hearing that. She blurted, “Really?”
Osiris cracked an affectionate smile, rubbed Faye’s head gently and said softly, “Of course. Why would I lie to you?”
Even though Osiris made the claim and there was no sign of him lying based on his expression, Faye could feel that something was off about the situation. She wondered if her father was truly capable of being so easygoing?
It seemed that there was some discrepancy with the father she remembered.
However, Faye was still delighted to hear that. If what her father said was true, it would be the best outcome for her!
Next to Faye, Hydradiara furrowed her eyebrows ever so slightly and there was confusion in her expression.
In her perception, her elder sister did not understand her father as much as she did after parting for so long. Generally, her father was not supposed to be so easygoing.
Most importantly, Jagoan beat Javier and King Erik to death. Those two people were the prodigies of Regicide Heofon and her father’s favorites. Could it be that her father would let Jagoan off for real?
She found that to be unlikely.
However, it was inappropriate for her to comment further under such circumstances.
She thought she should remind her elder sister after her father left.
Faye said, “So, do I have the permission to go back and contact him?”
Osiris said, “There’s a telephone in the office. You should still remember his number, right? Just give him a call. What do you think?”
Faye furrowed her eyebrows tighter. She was no fool, after all. She understood that her father’s intention was for Jagoan to come and pick her up from here!
She was in Regicide Heofon, her father’s territory. If Jagoan were to come, he would be walking into a trap if her father had the intention to start something with him.
All at once, she was caught in a dilemma.
Osiris appeared displeased when he said, “Lerna, are you thinking that I’m trying to plot on using you to lure Jagoan over?”
Faye hastily shook her head and said, “No, father. That’s not what I think, it’s only that…”
“Only what?” Osiris appeared displeased. He waved his hand dismissively, heaved a sigh and said, “Fine then. Since you don’t trust me, we shall leave this matter be and let you continue to stay here.”
Faye became slightly anxious upon hearing that. She shook her head in a haste and said, “No, Father. You’ve misunderstood me. I was only… Alright then, I’ll give him a call.”
“Hmm, good then.” Osiris patted Faye’s shoulder and assumed a gratified expression while he said, “I used to feel revolted by the fact that you married a man from the common world in the past.”
“I assumed that all the people from the common world are mediocre and no one was worthy of my daughter. Judging from the current situation, I was too biased.”
“Jagoan is an absolute genius. He is well matched to our family in social status and deserves to be my son-in-law.”
He continued to comfort Faye for a while more upon saying that.
The smile on his face vanished instantly when he turned around and left the room. All his prior kindness and gentleness turned into icy coldness and murderous intent.
One had no choice but to acknowledge that Osiris was very skilled in acting. Faye did not manage to see through his acting and foolishly believed that Osiris approved of Jagoan.
