Dean gave it a thought and wanted to test the water and responded
"Please tell her those exact words."
The guard threw a disgruntled glance as this seemed mildly inappropriate for a visitor from a clan to not have a formal letter for proof.
It made no sense that they wouldn't show at least the minimum for some formality in order for some trust to be formed.
This made him immediately think that Dean most likely had an ulterior motive and could be working with a random group trying to scam their company.
It must have been the Boss's relatives that sprouted her misfortune in a recent deal that caused some pesky people to start appearing.
But just for assurance, the guard retold the exact phrase of what Dean said to the other guard and sent him off.
He made sure to keep watch on Dean, so that as soon as news that there is no such thing as a 'Wilkes' clan would he be able to take action.
However he should just keep an eye and make sure this person wouldn't escape if he had connections with 'certain people'
The recent misfortune with the deal was extremely unusual from what the Boss relayed to him and they both brainstormed to suggest that it may be a group aiming for their capital.
There was further suspicion that this group could have been hired by Boss' relatives which was why they waited patiently until there was any more information.
With this kid before him, he might get a raise if his intuition was right.
His gaze was much more heated up with the revelation that a pay raise was within reach while Dean contemplated the intelligence of some of these security guards.
One was sleeping, another had a short temper and this one was obviously having a mental breakdown inside his head.
It motivated his idea to make a ruckus within the district to find Lily Zikel but he didn't want any information to suddenly go missing due to his mess.
The guard knocked on a large wooden door that seemed extremely plain but the knocking was surprisingly loud when being echoed.
"Yes, come in"
In response was a quick answer that invited the guard into the room.
On top of the table was only a few pages but this unfortunately had no details on any business. Instead, it was focused more on the financial analytics of last year and some family history.
He couldn't help but sigh that this company had already fallen so low even though he was promised that he would eventually hit it rich by a senior.
"What is it?"
She was currently in a bad mood due to recent problems and it seemed that even her security was beginning to slack off.
Her aggression grabbed the attention of the guard who was sweating bullets at the abrupt question while hoping not to mess up his line.
"Ummm... a visitor from the Wilkes Clan has an important announcement."
"Could you repeat that!"
There was slight fire in her eyes as she slammed the folder of papers she was currently holding, onto the table, sending pages flying.
"A visitor from the Wilkes Clan has an important announcement."
She was very surprised at the name and couldn't help but fall into silence for a few minutes.
The guard was getting a little worried at how long he was waiting for a response until he finally heard an answer.
"Send the visitor here."
Exiting the room once he got his answer, the guard wanted to avoid any more confrontations with his boss.
If that mood swing was going to be taken on him, his pay check might get reduced as fast as her emotions suddenly changed.
Seeing that she was finally alone in the room with sudden surprise, she whispered to herself.
"Sir, someone has recently been asking for Lily."
"Oh? That's odd, they haven't sent me a message about their next action. Did my brother receive anything?"
"No Sir, he has also been asked about Lily."
"This is strange, so someone actually has the guts to start making moves without us. try and investigate this mysterious person."
The man was left alone his room, contemplating who the new competitor was that started to interfere in their game.
"Did she invite someone for help?"
Thinking that his sister was now beginning to get more desperate for help, he smiled while writing a letter.
Currently, the security guard's shirt was sticking to his back due to him sweating too much.
He had been overthinking the situation and nearly destroyed his reputation as a security guard when he nearly misjudged a client.
If this was a person with a short temper, he was sure that his Boss would be willing to discard him as long as they managed to get a deal with a clan.
Dean paid no business to it but questioned how these people even got a job with poor etiquette.
This reminded him that he should rely on himself and not people like this.
Knocking the door and leaving Dean to his own regards, the security guard left to go back to his post.
Opening the door, Dean was immediately greeted by a female at the very end of the room holding a stack of paper.
Papers were everywhere across the floor but that caused Dean to frown at how unprofessional this person's behavior was.
Such a mess shows that she is not organized yet he was supposed to meet her.
"Are you Lily Zikel?"
It was like a landmine field where he made sure to avoid stepping onto a paper and creating unnecessary conflict.
On the other hand, the female was surprised that the visitor was unexpectedly younger than she though compared to the people of the past that looked like old men.
She still made sure to answer the question but the young boy suddenly gave her a letter.
