“How did your strength increase so rapidly in such a short period and attract Norvin’s attention?”
They all knew that Norvin would not act preemptively without reason. Today, he mobilized all his forces to capture Andrius, indicating that something was going on.
Andrius stared at them and said slowly, “Today is the day we’re paying respects to my master. If you’ve come here with sincere intentions to pay your respects, then I welcome you here. However, if you have other motives, then please leave now.”
After saying that, the aura of a Martial God surged out from within him, feeling vast like an ocean and majestic like a mountain.
The three family heads exchanged glances and smiled. “You’re overthinking, Andrius. All three of our families received invitations and specifically came here to pay respects to Old Hagstorm.”
Andrius frowned and looked back at Registus who also seemed confused and shook his head to indicate
that he did not send the invitations.
Andrius was puzzled.
Who else could have sent the invitations besides him and Registus?
There was something fishy going on..
Thus, he looked at Luna. She even gathered the forces of the Dragon Manor, which clearly meant that she knew something would happen today.
Was she the one who extended the invitations?
He had that question in mind but did not mention it.
The ceremony continued.
The three family heads took their turns to pay their respects.
Then, under Maximus‘ leadership, many elaborate procedures were followed, and Old Hagstorm’s grave was erected
After everything was done, the top officials of Florence left one by one.
When everyone left, Andrius turned to Luna and said, “Luna, I have something to ask you.”
Luna replied calmly, “What is it?”
“Why did you arrange for the Dragon Manor’s experts to come in advance? Did you know that the Swallows would come? Was it you who invited the other three families?” Andrius stared at Luna, trying to find something from her expression
“You’re overthinking, hubby.” Luna quickly denied it. “I summoned the experts from the Dragon Manor because I encountered a masked person when i went to the ladies He told me that a large number of the Swallows were on their way to Mount Dragon Tiger, so I urgently called the Dragon Manor’s experts for support
“As for the three families, I really didn’t know that they’d be here. Besides, we’ve been together for the past two days. You know this.”
Andrius fell silent after hearing Luna’s explanation
That was true.
Luna had been with him in the Royal Gardens in Sumeria the entire time since they decided to erect a grave for Old Hagstorm. It would have been impossible for her to invite the three families by herself.
In that case, the masked person was the suspicious one.
With that thought, he asked, “Luna, were there any special characteristics about the masked person? Can you recognize him?”
“He…” Luna casually made up some details. “He was dressed in a black robe, looked quite thin, and his eyes gave off a sinister feeling.”
Andrius frowned slightly. He could not recall such a person in his memories.
“Could it be…” Andrius seemed to be asking Luna, but he was also thinking to himself, “Is that person the one behind Old Hagstorm, the one Sect Master Klein mentioned before? Did he invite the three families?”
Andrius was not sure.
However, it was the only explanation that made sense.
Luna let out a sigh of relief when she saw that Andrius was no longer suspicious of her.
Wade, Kate, and the others remained silent the entire time.
“Let’s head back!” Andrius could not come up with a conclusion and decided to go down the mountain first.
The group descended.
At the foot of the mountain, Kate suddenly said to Andrius, “Andrius, come with me for a moment. I have something to discuss with you.”
Then, she got into a car from the Medicine Sect.
Andrius was puzzled but followed her.
“What is it, Kate?”
Kate signaled to the driver to start the car, creating some white noise, and closed the car door.
Then, she said to Andrius, “I suspect that Luna is lying.“
