Alyssa cast a cold glance at Rocky as if to say, "If you dare to say that again, I will kill you and let beasts and vultures feast on your corpse."

However, Rocky just smiled calmly and continued, "The Cao Clan is of great use to me and also to Prince Woods. Naturally, we can't let the Cao Clan fall into the hands of Prince Geoffrey. You must think the same way, right?"

"But there is no need for you to stand out. Have you forgotten who you are?" Although Alyssa knew that Rocky was right, she wasn't pleased about it, as it caused him to stand out and made things more troublesome and complicated.

"I didn't mean to stand out, you know. But everything happened so quickly that I had to act fast too. As they say, desperate times call for desperate measures," Rocky said helplessly.
