Tanya was confused by Eleanor’s behavior. Naturally, she knew her daughter well. Eleanor was stubborn and never competed against others for anything, but Tanya had never seen her so insistent on anything. “Eleanor, you do know that you’re my favorite among all your siblings, don’t you? Although I’ve never asked anything from you, I know what your preferences are and will always give them to you. But that man… He’s Hayley Elrod’s son-in- law, so he’s our enemy. If I save him today, he’ll take your life tomorrow. I will never let such a thing happen.” She refused directly.
“The future is an unknown, but now, I want him alive, Eleanor argued while fisting her hands.
Perhaps her hands were fisted too tightly, causing the wound on her wrist to burst open again. Blood began seeping through the white bandage, but she did not even look at or care about it.
“What do you like about him?” That was a question that had Tanya stumped. “I can’t describe what I like about him, but I fell in love with him the first time I saw him. He “Hmph! You have such a childish temperament. That’s simply outrageous.” Tanya interrupted Eleanor before getting up and preparing to leave through the back door.
At that, Eleanor became anxious. “Mom, please save him!” She placed both hands on the obsidian flooring and bowed her head, knocking it on the floor. “He’s extremely important to me, Mom!”
Tanya, who had taken a few steps forward, did not expect her daughter would be so stubborn. While facing Eleanor, who was infatuated with. Matthew, Tanya sighed. This girl is just like her father.
He was also an affectionate person. It was a pity that he was no longer here. “Eleanor, you should know it’s hard to save him when the poison has spread across his entire body. Also, there is a high possibility that we can’t save him.”
Eleanor straightened her body, revealing her red and swollen forehead. With determination in her eyes, she declared, “As long as there is a slither of hope, I need to try.”
Tanya asked, “What if he returns to Veronica after I save him?” “I won’t regret my decision,” Eleanor replied. “What if he works together with Veronica to take away your place as head of the clan and kills you?”
“Not to mention whether he has such a capability, even if he does, then that will be my fate. Even if I don’t save him, Veronica might still be able to snatch my title as head of the clan. Therefore, these don’t clash with each. other.”
“What if I tried my best but still failed to save him?” “If you did your best, I would have as well. Even if he dies in the end, that’s his fate, and I won’t have any regrets in this lifetime.”
Every reply Eleanor gave her mother was direct and without hesitation, yet it was because of that that made Tanya have mixed feelings. The two met each other’s eyes, with one standing and the other kneeling on the ground.
A long while later, Tanya questioned, “What if I don’t want to save him? What would you do?” “Then, I won’t inherit the position as head of the clan.” “Are you threatening me?”
“No, I’m not,” Eleanor replied sincerely. “I’m about to inherit your position, but if I can’t even protect the person I love, being head of the clan is meaningless. So, what’s the use of me inheriting the position?”
Once Eleanor finished her words, Tanya’s face instantly turned gloomy. Another long moment passed before she ordered, “Guards!” A few seconds later, several guards came in. “Queen Tanya, what are your orders?”
“Bring her away! She needs to rethink everything she’s done!”
As the head of the hidden clan, they could not be amorous; once they had someone they loved, they would have a weak spot. Eleanor had yet to become the head of the clan, but she was already acting recklessly because of her feelings. That made Tanya unable to imagine how Matthew might treat Eleanor if she did save him.
