King called me to his study as soon as he returned. He asked me about the events of the past few days. I reported to him one by one.
“Is the engagement party ready for tomorrow?” King asked in a low voice.
“Everything is ready.”
“What about the guests?”
“According to your instructions, I sent invitations to all the heads of the families,” I respectfully replied.
“The Celestons were the first to reply. They said that they would bring madam along. They also brought a box of the weapons they developed. I’m afraid that they want to take this opportunity to discuss new business with you.”
“Their families are all businessmen. Keep it. Let’s see what good things they’ve produced.”
“The head of the Mayfield family said that he was sick, but he did send a long list of gifts.
Theard King snort coldly.
“That old bastard wants to tear me apart in his heart. It’s just that he can’t do so at the moment. Don’t bother about him.”
Iwas about to continue reporting when I suddenly heard a rustling sound. I could not help but shut my mouth.
King and I looked at each other warily. I knew that he had also heard it. Then, I was surprised to discover that the sound seemed to be coming from the wall behind King. After a while, the rustling sound disappeared. Soon, there was a rhythmic thump on the wall.
T opened my mouth to call my bodyguard over, but King suddenly stopped me. Only then did I realize that King’s expression was a little strange. It was as if he could not help but laugh.
King gave me a hand gesture. I walked over. He pointed at the document in my hand and mouthed “Alvin.” He said, “Go on.”
King then mouthed “Louder”.
I understood what he meant and said loudly, “Yes. The Alvin family has also replied. The head of the family will bring Miss Irene to attend. There is also a gift list attached. It seems that as usual, they are trying to be friendly with the Alex family.”
“They are just trying to curry favor. The Alex family won’t put them in their eyes,” King replied.
“[heard that the Alvins have already set a date with the Steve family. It seems that they really want to reach an agreement as soon as possible.”
“Of course they want it to be as soon as possible, in case anything goes wrong.”
After King finished speaking, he gestured for me to follow him to the inner room. I stopped talking and walked over with him.
“alright, you can continue.”

I did not react for a moment and asked, “That was… Miss Yuna?”
“She’s always been interested in this. I want her to find out more about Irene. Maybe she’ll find something unexpected.”
I nodded. “We’ve been keeping an eye on the Alvins. Their family is very interested in this marriage. It’s just that Miss Irene didn’t seem too happy recently, but she’s gotten better now. I don’t know why.”
“I know. What about the other families?”
“The Steve family is the same as the Alvins. The head of the family brought Young Master Nick to attend. Their family also attaches great importance to this marriage.”
“What about the Paxton Family?”
“Their family…” I hesitated.
“He’s not coming?” King coldly said.
“Dick Paxton accepted the invitation, but the letter also said that the head of the Paxton family is sick and can’t attend.”
“Sick?” King frowned, “Is he really sick?”
“Tm afraid so.”. The internal strife in the Paxton family had been serious for the past two years. Anyone with discerning eyes could see that the most likely successor was the Second Young Master. However, the head of the family favored the First Young Master. The First Young Master was ambitionless
and knew nothing about family affairs. Eighty percent of the family affairs were in the hands of the Second Young Master. However, because the head of the family was still alive, no one dared to do anything to the First Young Master. If the head of the family left, I’m afraid…”
“Was it Dick who did it to his father?”
“I’s hard to say. But in the past two years, Dick’s power has been growing stronger and stronger. The head of the family is very afraid of him. I think that Dick won’t have a chance to do it. I’m afraid the head of the family can’t hold on any longer.”
“No wonder he’s been so arrogant recently.” King exhaled a puff of smoke. A faint wood fragrance filled the room. “It seems that he feels that the patriarch’s position is almost certain and has decided to take this position in advance. That’s good too. Let me meet him in advance. Prepare a room for me
tomorrow. I want to talk to him alone.”
Suddenly, I heard the sound of something breaking. It was accompanied by a woman’s scream.
I saw the corner of King’s eyes twitch and immediately realized that this was probably something that Miss Yuna had done.
“Kevin, go and see what’s going on.”
King’s voice sounded a little helpless.
I stood there in embarrassment, not knowing how to respond. Perhaps I should buy a book to teach me how to deal with my boss’s family affairs, which were still very awkward.
“Is there anything else?” King turned his gaze to me as his gaze carrying an unquestionable pressure.
“No.” eft in a hurry.
