The End NO.8: Mistake—translated by Raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by J Tao & lucathia)
I lost. As expected, Charles is really strong! It’s a pity though…
At that time, it looked like he wasn’t himself anymore, so it doesn’t count as a true loss. I wonder, will he be okay after eating so many blood candies? You really can’t eat the things Bàba makes in large quantities.
Outside the railings, someone yelled in rage, “Why would you want to harm the family head?”
My entire body was tied up, so I could barely turn my head to look at him. That was Dong Fang Lei. Charles said that he is the head butler working alongside Curtis, but he doesn’t look like a butler in the least bit. Yup, Charles is still better.
“Our prestigious Elysees family head is so loyal to you, yet this is how you repay him? By delivering his most important brother figure into the hands of the Church, and then trying to kill him?”
“Gēge issued a command.” I calmly watched him, but I could not shake the nagging feeling that something was off.
Dong Fang Lei shouted furiously, “Are you saying that as long as he issues a command, you’ll do anything?”
“If Curtis ordered you to kill Charles, would you do so?”
Dong Fang Lei froze, and fell silent for a while. He then answered, “If the family head has done nothing wrong, then even the substitute family head cannot give the command to kill him. I would not follow it.”
I laughed, and said, “At first, you didn’t even like Charles, and would give him the evil eye upon seeing him. Your hatred level even reached eighty percent…”
Right, I know what’s wrong now.
Since when did all the system analysis disappear?
Shouldn’t there be a lot of numbers floating next to each person? Why is it that now, I can only see Dong Fang Lei?
What exactly is wrong with me? Could this be the result of not listening to Gēge’s orders? Is the chip broken?
“The family head changed my view of him through his actions.” Dong Fang Lei stated, as though it was a matter of fact. “At first, I thought the family head refused all responsibilities while still having command over the entire Elysees family. Afterwards, I found out that he was willing to put his own life at stake for the sake of the substitute family head and the family. Yet, he did not have any intentions of taking back his authority from the substitute family head. Therefore, I changed my mind. Is that not perfectly normal?”
I looked at Dong Fang Lei, wanting to know if what he said was the truth. If I just analyze him… But there was no need. Even without the computer chip’s analysis, it was clear that he was telling the complete truth.
