Taking it while staring it into the boy's eyes, there was something akin to a void however that made no sense.
It was expected as a person adept in business to understand their customer or client which could open up much more information such as demographic.
She did not expect that she couldn't read the person before her and began to question what the hell has the Wilkes Clan been doing.
Not expecting an answer to that, she began to read the letter.
If you happen to hear about the incident of what has happened to us, please do not take revenge. It seems we have offended a large power that in the end wouldn't tell us their identity.
A few of your relatives have escaped into the world and ran away from this incident in the hopes our bloodline still continues.
Your father has most likely died but you have the rights to know that his destination was the Zikel Clan's District. There you can ask around the name of 'Lily Zikel'
Your beloved grandfather}
Shock overwhelmed her heart as she didn't expect the letter to contain such info regarding the clan and shivered at the sincerity.
She never expected that the one time she actually rejects them to give any help, they would actually wound up like this.
Looking at the beginning of the name, Dean, Lily guessed that he was the grandson from the very bottom part of the letter and began to worry.
Youths these days tend to get taken over by their emotions and if this person suddenly provoked a great force despite him specifically being told 'Do not take revenge.'
Glaring at him to analyze any available information she asked
"Did you take revenge"
Dean was confused by that being the first question and it explained two things.
She may have not read the whole letter before asking that question which shows her impatience.
The other one suggests that she was able to read the whole letter but first placed her priority on the revenge part.
He questioned why his grandpa sent him here and didn't know why he trusted this girl who is weary like a beast.
Still trying to probe around the identity of Lily, Dean answered truthfully.
It was a plain answer that got straight to the point but he immediately saw the true colors of the girl before him.
There was a small part of him that held the lady in contempt when she suddenly had a malicious aura around her eyes that were silently hidden.
"But I already killed him"
As expected, his answers were just playing around with Lily to see her standpoint but Dean regretted the answer as there was soon greed in the lady's eyes.
She was originally pissed that this young man was actually thinking of bringing trouble upon her recent problems.
'This damn clan, not knowing when to stop taking.'
However that soon changed when she realized that the young man was able to take care of the problem immediately and survive.
If she managed to bring this child under her wing, then her epidemic could be solved in an instant.
Reading down, she immediately ignored the part regarding some other relatives as she had no business with them but paid a lot of attention to the bottom.
'Your father has most likely died but you have the rights to know that his destination was the Zikel Clan's District. '
The part next to it was what she guessed to be the reason why the child was searching for but this statement was odd.
There were quite a lot of people who died that was with that man when they tried to enter the Zikel Clan's District.
If she guessed the corpse count belonging to males, it would wander around the number of 40~50.
This was a good opportunity for her to get on the good side of this child as long as she was able to help him with this task.
If all fails, lying also works.
Sending a glance filled with curiosity, she asked
"What's the name of your father?"
Dean was stumped at the question.
This made Dean a little eager at what history lies between the Zikel Clan and the Wilkes Clan.
From the question, it presumes that their has most likely been more than just his father that died here.
But it strangely doesn't constitute them having an all out war.
To make matters even weirder, his grandpa still told him to come here while Lily Zikel didn't seem like she was ready to kill him.
Those were his afterthoughts but the main problem was - he didn't know the name of his father.
He did go to the trip to the cave but no one specifically said his full name there and he only knows how to call him 'dad' or 'father'.
When going back to the clan after the cave incident, he was distant and would rarely try to interact with him.
At one point, Dean just gave up on trying to approach his father and they went on their separate ways.
Even the kids who bullied him didn't know the name of his father, so they couldn't even use his name to ridicule him.
Dean was starting to worry that if he didn't remember the name soon enough, Lily would kick him out.
"His name was... people liked to call him Senior Elder Asher."
That was all he could remember but if that wasn't enough then Dean was done.
Lily was spacing out when she heard the full name
"Senior Elder....Senior Elder.... ASHER WILKES!"
She was suddenly in a state of rage due to the sudden shatter of the table that turned into splinter while Dean just calmly watched.
'This lady may have anger issues'
Realizing that was how the paper had landed across the floor and taking a detail look at the table, Dean was worried about the intelligence of Lily.
Her table didn't just turn into multiple parts due to a strong slam as Dean noticed a few dents and unusual structure of the splinters.
