Magic Deity: Godly Choices - Chapter 548
Chapter 548: The Prince’s Plan
“It’s fine. You don’t have to worry. The wedding will be held as usual. If that Silas really dares to come, it’ll be a good opportunity for the others to see the strength of our Cook family,” Tuzman said loudly.
“Alright, Father. I’ll write back to that prince right now and tell him our attitude.”
Seeing that there was no need to change the wedding, Clare’s face was filled with excitement as well. He hurriedly wrote back.
In the Laurent family, German had the same thoughts. He did not agree with the prince’s idea.
This made Fiona, who could have postponed or even canceled the wedding, extremely disappointed. She walked out alone.
Seeing his daughter’s appearance, German felt very uncomfortable.
However, he was, after all, the patriarch of the family. He also had to consider for the family.
In the Dawn Castle, after receiving the replies from the two families, Gawain IV was so angry that his lungs were about to explode.
The Laurent family’s reply was still acceptable. They only declined politely, but also indicated that they would increase the strength of the guards.
However, the Cook clan’s people were different. They directly and shamelessly looked down on Gawain IV for letting such a powerful criminal escape. If their Cook clan had come to guard, they definitely wouldn’t have made such a mistake.
Moreover, they still wanted to hold a normal wedding. If this Silas really dared to come, they would definitely let him see the power of the Cook clan.
The entire letter was filled with an arrogant and domineering tone, which made Gawain IV very angry.
“A bunch of idiots. When they come, you’ll know the consequences.”
The reason why Gawain IV was angry was not just because they ignored his own thoughts and felt that they could deal with Silas.
It was also because of the attitude they revealed.
Ever since his father, Emperor Gavin the Third, passed away, the attitude of those families had been very ambiguous. Most of them did not support him, the prince, to succeed the throne.
Although there was indeed something wrong with him, and he was not as powerful as his father…
But he was the only heir. Why didn’t those families support him? What did they want? To replace him?
For the first time, Gawain IV had the intention to kill these families. These families that were not on his side no longer needed to exist.
Perhaps this was a chance, a chance for the power to be reshuffled. It was also a chance for him, Gawain IV, to regain power.
However, he still had to prepare some backup plans to preserve Demacia’s strength.
He could not do it alone. He still needed some help.
Now, only Garen’s Reigning family was completely loyal to him. He felt that he could find Garen to discuss it.
Thinking of this, he ordered the guards to ask Garen to come to the palace quickly.
When Garen came to the palace, it was already night time, and the chief steward, Zhao Xin, was also here.
“Your Highness, why did you call me here?”
When there were outsiders around, Garen’s behavior was still very elegant.
Gawain IV waved his hand, and the rest of the guards left.
“Stop pretending. There’s no one else here now.”
Gawain IV rolled his eyes.
“Hehe, it’s quite uncomfortable to be serious sometimes.”
He and Gawain IV grew up together, and their relationship was especially good, so they didn’t treat each other as ruler and subjects like that. This was also the reason why their family had always supported Gawain IV.
“Oh right, why did you call me here? I’m still having dinner with my sister.”
Seeing that Zhao Xin was also here, Garen scratched his head. Could it be that something big had happened?
“You sister-obsessed girl, don’t say anything. I’m here to talk to you about something big.”
Gawain IV looked at Garen with disdain. This guy was definitely a sister-obsessed guy. Whoever dared to lay their hands on his sister would be targeted by him and their legs would be broken.
Hearing that, Garen and Zhao Xin became serious.
“It’s like this…”
Gawain IV first told Garen everything that happened today.
“Gawain, since Silas escaped and colluded with those black-robed men, now we have to increase the strength of the guards.”
After Garen figured out the whole story, he directly told him his thoughts. After all, that Silas was not a good guy, and he even had designs on his sister.
Zhao Xin, who was beside him, also nodded.
“Yeah, and I’ve already warned those families, but they didn’t take it seriously.”
Gawain IV was also having a headache.
This made Garen a bit embarrassed. After all, the Cook family was their distant relative.
Although they were related, they couldn’t control the opposite side.
Gawain IV looked at the two and slowly said, “So, I have a very risky idea now. I wonder if you will support me?”
“Zhao Xin will always support the Light Shield clan.”
“Me too, Gawain. What kind of friendship do we have? As long as you don’t have any ideas about my sister, everything will be fine.”
“Screw you. I’m not interested in your sister. I want to use this opportunity to get rid of some clans and smoothly inherit the throne.”
Gawain IV finally revealed his purpose.
Zhao Xin didn’t have any reaction. He felt that it should have been like this a long time ago. When Gawain the Third was around, the other families didn’t dare to resist.
Garen was silent. He didn’t think that he would play such a big game.
“Have you thought about it? This isn’t a small matter!”
Garen’s face was full of solemnity.
“To be honest, I didn’t want to either. But those families are too arrogant now. It’s fine if they don’t recognize me as the successor, but now they actually dare to directly ignore me. If it wasn’t for your Reigning family supporting me, I might have been a prisoner.”
Speaking of this, Gawain IV gritted his teeth.
Speaking of this, Garen felt a wave of sympathy. This good friend of his was a little too miserable.
“The Reigning clan will always support the Light Shield clan.”
Garen made his promise to Gawain IV.
“Good, good. With your help, I don’t have to worry too much.”
Gawain IV was very excited.
“Gawain, I would like to ask about our specific strength and the strength of the other party. which families should we eliminate? What if Demacia’s strength becomes weaker after we eliminate them?”
Garen asked about Gawain’s specific plan.
“I’m here to discuss with you.”
Gawain the Fourth touched his nose, feeling a little embarrassed.
Garen was speechless.
“Ahem, first, let’s talk about the strength of the opponent.”
“Silas was previously at the intermediate stage of the Eternal Realm, and he should still be at the intermediate stage after breaking out of prison. However, his strength might have increased a little.”
“Then, there are those black-robed men. There’s no need to worry about a few half-step Eternal Realm experts. Two of them are at the intermediate stage of the Eternal Realm, and there might even be one at the advanced stage of the Eternal Realm.”
At the mention of the leader of the black-robed men who gave him a lot of pressure, Gawain IV had a solemn look on his face.
Hearing that there was an expert at the later stage of the Eternal Realm, Garen and Zhao Xin both had solemn expressions on their faces.
Facing this kind of overwhelming strength, there was really nothing they could do.
In the face of absolute strength, all schemes and tricks were like a mirage.
