Looking at Briana Cameron’s determined expression, Gemma finally realized that she was no longer the little girl who would get upset over trivial matters and seek comfort in her arms.
She had grown up and no longer needed her.
After a moment of silence, Gemma said softly, “Alright, I understand. But if he ever treats you badly, you must tell me. Your parents and brothers will always be your backup.”
“Um, thanks, Mom!”
In the study.
Sean and Maxim both looked serious, and the atmosphere
was somewhat tense.
“I heard you went to see senior Mr. Ferber? What did he say?”
“He said that over twenty years ago, the Lightfoot family went bankrupt, all their properties were destroyed overnight, and
then there was no news of them ever since. If there was a family that desperately wanted the key, it should only be the Lightfoot family.”
Sean’s face changed, “Did he say the Lightfoot family? But the Lightfoot family clearly already…”
Suddenly, Sean remembered that the Lightfoot family had another son at that time, who was about the same age as him. After the Lightfoot family had an accident, the other party disappeared without a trace.
As time passed, he gradually forgot about this person.
It seemed that the person who wanted to get the key was him – Richie Lightfoot!
Sean was silent for a long time, then said in a deep voice, “I see, no wonder I felt a sense of familiarity with the way Kingly Group operated when I dealt with them before. I didn’t expect it to be him.”
Seeing Sean’s unpleasant expression, Maxim frowned and asked, “Why did the Lightfoot family suddenly go bankrupt more than twenty years ago?”
Sean took a breath and slowly said, “There were five pieces of the key in total, each held by the Lightfoot, Vanderberg, Cameron, Ferber, and Jensen families. I don’t know what would happen if the keys were combined, but when my father gave me the key, he warned me that I must not let anyone get all five pieces, or all the families in Haseton might be destroyed.”
Originally, everyone was living in peace, but one day, the then master of the Lightfoot family suddenly proposed to combine the five secret keys to see what would happen.
Naturally, we all disagreed when the Lightfoot family began to send people to steal keys from several families. This later angered several families, who then joined forces to suppress the Lightfoot family. However, the Lightfoot family began to desperately snatch other families‘ collaborations, but they Jacked the ability to operate them. In the end, they went
“He couldn’t accept this outcome, so he set the Lightfoot family on fire, dying himself in the blaze. The Lightfoot family
Speaking of the Lightfoot family, there was still a hint of regret in Sean’s eyes.
If the president of the Lightfoot Group hadn’t suddenly gone mad for all the keys, it wouldn’t have led to the decline of the Lightfoot family, eventually leading to bankruptcy.
Maxim’s eyes darkened, he said coldly, “But when I came to Haseton, I only heard of the three big families, which are the Ferber family, the Cameron family, and the Jensen family. I have never heard of the Vanderberg family.”
Sean nodded, “Yes, because after the matter of the Lightfoot family, the Vanderberg family developed faster and faster. In the end, even if our several families united, we were no match for the Vanderberg family. The Vanderberg family became the first family in Haseton. However, Cosmo began to slowly fade out of the public’s sight and became very low–key since then.”
“I understood, I would focus on investigating the matters of the Lightfoot family. As long as I followed this lead, I should be able to uncover the puppet master behind the scenes.”
“Um, you might have to face a lot of dangers next, the first thing to deal with was the Kingly Group.”
Maxim’s expression cooled a few degrees, he said in a deep voice, “Isaac simply doesn’t have the ability to manage a company. If we can just pull out the person behind him, dealing with Kingly Group will be much easier.”
Upon hearing this, Sean furrowed his brow and suddenly said, “I heard that the Yoder Group has been having some
difficulties recently. Many of their partnerships have been
taken over by the Schneider Group and the Bynes Group. Do you want me to help?”
