Chapter 210 “B- Black Dragon?”
Newton was stunned by James’ words. One of the five commanders of Sol?
The Black Dragon of the Southern Plains who sent shockwaves across the world in a battle a year ago? His granddaughter, Serena, could not help but glance at James. The Black Dragon was a name known to all. However, no one knew what the Black Dragon looked like. She never thought the Black Dragon would be a Caden.
James looked at Newton and asked, “Mr. Quinn, can you tell me more about my family?”
Though James now stood at the pinnacle of power and exercised great authority, he still could not find anything about the history of the Cadens.
He believed his family was not an ordinary one.
Not only that, the Moonlit Flowers on Cliffside’s Edge was no ordinary item either. Newton took a deep breath. Since James was the Black Dragon, he could confront the enemy of the Cadens. “James, have you ever heard of The Four Great Families of Sol?”
The Four Great Families of Sol?
He did not know anything about this. He knew there were powerful families in the Capital and that they were rich beyond all measures. Yet, he had never heard of the Four Great Families of Sol. Newton continued, “The Cadens, the Sullivans, the Johnstons, and the Lees are the Great Four Families of Sol. They’ve existed for almost two thousand years. And in the two millennia of expansion, the presence of the Four Great Families can be felt all over the world.”
“Mr. Quinn, are you saying the Cadens is one of them too?”
“Although the Four Great Families have much of the world’s wealth in their possession, few knew of their existence. Thirty years ago, infighting broke out within the Cadens. Your grandfather, Thomas, left the Cadens and migrated to Cansington with his family.”
James could not help but ask, “Then, what does the Moonlit Flowers on Cliffside’s Edge have to do with the destruction of the Cadens?”
Newton replied, “This I do not know. I’m only a butler and a mere servant. I only know that the Moonlit Flowers on Cliffside’s Edge was brought here by your grandfather from the Cadens and that someone powerful was interested in it. Thomas once told me that the Four Great Families are scattered across the world. The current Emperor, who’s one of the five commanders, is also in one of the Four Great Families. As for which family he’s from, that I’m not aware of.” Upon hearing this, James’ face darkened. “Mr. Quinn, do you mean to say that the main culprit behind the destruction of the Cadens is the Emperor?”
Newton shook his head. “James, I don’t know. I can only tell you this. The Emperor is also from one of the Four Great Families. As for which family, I don’t know. The destruction of the Cadens could be an inside job, or it could be one planned by the other three of the Four Great Families.”
The Four Great Farnilies were shrouded in secrecy.
Outsiders did not even know of their existence.
Newton did not plan to speak of this.
However, now, James was the Black Dragon of the Southern Plains and one of the five Commanders of Sol. He stood at the pinnacle of power.
With such strength, it was possible to confront the Four Great Families. Upon hearing this, James brightened up
If the Emperor had been behind all this, then the five commanders of Sol would become the four commanders.
Though the Emperor was one of the most powerful amongst the five commanders, taking his life was no difficult task for James.
“Mr. Quinn, do you know the history of the Moonlit Flowers on Cliffside’s Edge and what secrets it holds? Why would anyone be interested in it?”
Newton shook his head. “James, I do not know. Thomas sajd nothing about it.”
“Then, do you know who currently has the Moonlit Flowers on Cliffside’s Edge?”
Newton, once again, shook his head.
James was disappointed.
He thought Newton had plenty of insider information. He never thought he would only be knowledgeable about the history of the Cadens. He took an ordinary key out of his pocket.
