316 New Mission

 "Well, the missing information is not that important for you too."

Laura rolled her eyes. "It might not be important, but I'm curious about them. Don't you know that curiosity might kill someone?"

"Eh? Really? This is the first time I hear about it."

Misae laughed. "It won't really kill you, but it might be possible that you're thinking of that over and over."

"Are you interested in the information too, Misae?" Alice asked.

Misae shook her head. She had had enough of information regarding clan that these two talked about. Even if she knew that Ryukalin Clan is far better than other clans, her body's reaction to the word 'clan' was still extremely big. She didn't know when she would be able to react normally like before.

Laura hugged Misae from the side. "Don't worry. We won't force you to accept things so quickly. Just move on with your own pace."

"Thanks, Laura," Misae smiled as she patted the girl's hand.

Alice sighed. "I'll just tell you a bit more if you're still curious, Laura. The one about to be the legal clan head will have to gather supporters before the gathering. If they didn't pick him to be the clan head, he might lose the position."

"It's that bad?" Laura was astonished.

"Yes, that's the rule."

"There are so many rules of the clan," Misae murmured. This was the first time she learned about them so much. She sighed internally and changed the conversation. "Oh right, have you seen Mike?"

"He won't be coming to school today. During the incident, he's there," Alice pointed to the newspaper on Misae's hand.

"How do you know?"

"His name is there."

"What?"

Misae hurriedly read the content again and sure enough, she found his name. It seemed, someone saw him when he was driving the car madly and told the reporters about it. Somehow, she felt her heart throbbed with pain when she read the content.

There was no doubt about it, she still cared for him so much.

Laura sighed and sat down beside Misae. "My sis is staying in the infirmary today, so I'll be the one to accompany you today."

"Okay."

"Later, let's try a new recipe after the meeting. I found an interesting one on the internet last night," when talking about food, Laura's eyes glimmered with light.

Alice chuckled. "Sure, let's borrow the school's kitchen."

While the three of them planned to borrow the kitchen, Kanae was sleeping soundly in the infirmary. Hours passed as Kanae spent them to sleep and rest her body. This time, Shiro didn't disturb her at all because he knew she needed to rest to recover faster.

By the time Kanae woke up, she has already slept for more than six hours in the infirmary.Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.

"You sleep for a long time little lass," Shiro handed a glass of water. "How long do you train with Master Rudy last night?"

"A few hours," Kanae answered as she took the glass. "I need to sleep to recover faster, so I think I will just sleep a lot."

Shiro nodded his head. "You can sleep as long as you want. The school is not going to protest or anything like that."

"That's good to hear," Kanae smiled.

Shiro played with the pen on his hand. "What is your plan in the future? You don't want to stay as part of the underworld, right?"

Kanae nodded her head. If she had the choice, she would want to have a life as an ordinary girl in this city who has a stable job and an ordinary life without any need to bet on her life at every turn. However, her fight with the Nali Family was not over yet, she still has to face them a lot.

Besides, there might be other danger that came from her fight with the Nali Family. It would be better for her to keep the force she had in Underworld within her grasps. This way, she would be able to use them when it was necessary.

"I'll keep my identity as part of the underworld for now. I still need their help to face against my uncle and the Nali Family."

"The Nali Family is not that strong, why don't you just marry the young master from another big family?"

"...Say that one more and I'll smash the glass to your head."

Shiro shrugged. "I'm just saying, that's an option that you can take. With contact lenses, your image would change considerably, and I'm pretty sure that a lot of men will chase after you."

His mind was actually picturing out Jason. After a few talks with that man, he knew that Jason has some different feeling for Kanae. Even though Jason kept them under wrap as he treated Kanae no different than a little sister, he could see them at times.

However, Jason had started to forget about that kind of thoughts. From the way he saw it, the young master was trying to control his mind and diverted it to other actions.

Neither one of them wanted to destroy the relationship that they have had up until now.

"I don't want to rely on other people's power to get what I want," Kanae answered. "And I wish to marry the man that I love, not because of money and power."

"Fine, that's your option. I won't meddle in your personal life."

Kanae smiled teasingly. "Besides, do you want to see your sweet little sister to get married to a useless young master?"

Shiro's face darkened at the thought of Kanae marrying someone useless. If it was someone who only knew how to use their parent's money without any care of the world, he would wish for nothing but planting a bullet on the man's forehead.

"I guess no."

"See, even you say that," Kanae laughed.

Shiro crossed his arm. "But you're not my sister, so it doesn't count for you."

"What are you talking about? I'm your sister ever since you decide to join the group."

"I'm just joining because I don't want to see two kids die in front of my clinic."

Kanae rolled her eyes. "That's the same thing as telling me that you care for me. Don't be shy, Brother Shiro, just admit that you care for me like I'm genuinely your little sister."

Rolling his eyes at Kanae's remark, Shiro sighed to himself. He inspected Kanae's appearance all over. "Fine, whatever you say. But really, have you never thought of this option? Even though you're just the fifth branch in Nali Family, you have a rather special connection with the main family. It'll grant you much more power than other branches."

"Much more power?" Kanae's tone was clearly ridiculing this one statement. Outsiders only saw how much this position gave her power and money, but never saw how much pain it brought. The name Nali Family only symbolized with the glory, but never even once mentioned the pain it brought.

"I guess, I'm wrong," Shiro coughed. Kanae's tone made him sensed danger for split second.

Kanae nodded. "I'm always the antagonist in my cousin's eyes. Living a comfortable life and competing against one another, she always tries to make herself look good by putting all the bad in me. For me, being part of Nali Family will only cause pain without any joy."

"I see, I'm sorry," Shiro apologized. "I don't mean bringing those bad memories to you again."

"It doesn't really matter," Kanae waved her hand. She silently sighed to herself. Really, she wished for nothing but getting out of this name's clutches, especially her uncle.

The two of them stayed silent for a moment. It was then that their special phone vibrated at the same time. They quickly turned it on and heard Jason's voice from the other end.

"Shin, Rei, Tom, we have gotten a new mission."

"What is the mission? Is it a big one?" Tommy asked. In the next second, they heard the sound of a kick. It seemed Tommy was still in the middle of a fight on the street.

"Kind of," Jason answered. "Ryukalin contacts us; they want our group to protect their clan head during his recuperating time."

"What?"
