Steven stared at her intently and left without saying a word.

"Hey, where are you going?"

Carla asked, knitting her eyebrows.

"I'm going to bed,"

Steven answered without looking back.

Carla glanced at him. Steven was an enigma at times. She couldn't understand what was going on in his complicated mind. She sighed and closed the window. She stretched her tight muscles and went back to bed to sleep.

However, Carla's brain was whirling with all the problems and challenges she was facing. She couldn't fall back to sleep.

Her grandmother had been forcing her to make an impossible choice. Although Carla had promised to think about it and get back to her, she had already made up her mind. She knew that her grandmother wouldn't be pleased with her decision.

She didn't know what to do. Carla was aware that she was trapped here and there was no way out. Her grandmother wouldn't let her go even if she wanted to.

Carla had been squeezing her brain for the last two weeks to come up with a plan to escape from this uncomfortable situation. She had hit a dead end and had to pave her way out.

At the Phoenix Palace, Arthur smiled as he stood up after playing a beautiful song. "Eleanor, what do you think of my performance?"

He covered his mouth and coughed loudly and walked towards Eleanor who was watching him. Her eyes were filled with concern.

"Arthur, you are not a young boy anymore. You need to accept that you are old and stop acting like a teenager. See, you are coughing now."

Eleanor waved her hand and gestured him to sit next to her. "Is there anything you want to tell me?"

Arthur plopped next to her and took a sip of water to moisten his parched throat. "What do you mean? I just wanted to play a song for you."

Eleanor rolled her eyes. "Come on, I know you very well. Just say whatever you need to say."

Arthur was having another coughing fit and Eleanor rubbed his back to soothe him. "Why are you coughing like that? Have you gone to see a doctor?"

It was rare for Eleanor to fuss over him and Arthur was enjoying the attention. A smile tugged on the corners of his lips. "Yes I have, and it's nothing serious," he said in a raspy voice. He cleared his throat and continued, "Eleanor, Callie has been locked up for a long time. I think she has had enough.

She is your granddaughter. I don't think you have the heart to see her suffer. Just put an end to this torture."

Eleanor knew that Arthur was here because of Carla. He played the song to relax her and change her mind.

"I'm not the one who has locked her up.

rest. She was relieved to hear his voice. Terence had the power to change her mood and make her happy in an instant.

After hanging up the phone, Carla stood up from the couch and walked to the yard.

The sky was clear and the dazzling sun was hitting her face. She wondered if it was also sunny in JA City.

Time passed by, and the sky slowly darkened as the sun sank into the mountains in the west.

Carla was reading a book in her room. Since she had no work to do, Carla spent her time reading the history of Yu Sea City.

Steven had stocked her shelf with books on politics and management. She would read them for at least three hours a day.

Carla closed a book that she had finished and rubbed her sore neck.

"Oh my God! Why have you brought all these books? Don't you see I still have books that I need to finish?" Carla gaped at the pile of books in Steven's arms.

"Take them back!"

she grumbled with annoyance.

"You have to read them. You need to gather knowledge and understanding to lead the clan. These books will help you. Take your time. You don't have to finish them in a hurry." Steven placed the books on the shelf and dusted his hands.

Carla glared at Steven. She shifted her gaze to the bookshelf that was loaded with books. She thought that she would go crazy by the time she became the matriarch.

Carol sprang into the room. Her heart was drumming loudly in her chest.

She took a moment to catch her breath.

"Madam!"

Carla turned to look at the door. "What's up, Carol?"

"Nathan had called. Mr. Terence was in a car accident on the way to S City.

The car has rolled off the cliff and the driver has died on the spot. Mr. An ... Mr. An was nowhere to be found."
