The captain of the guards was slender and the muscles on his body evenly-proportioned, making him look like someone not to be trifled with. His looks were finally revealed this time.
Likely of mixed descent, the man was very good-looking. It was just that he had red eyes, and it was exactly through those eyes that Nora had recognized him—he was Barbarian!!
Never could she have ever imagined that Barbarian would turn out to be the captain of the Queen’s Royal Guards!
She broke into a frown, suddenly feeling like there seemed to be more to it than met the eye.
But when she thought about it, it made sense. For Barbarian to survive unharmed until now after he left the mysterious organization and became enemies with Trueman, he must have some kind of power backing him up.
But if the Queen of the UK was the said power, then it wouldn’t be as surprising anymore.
Did Her Majesty know of Barbarian’s true identity, though?
Did she know that he was a serial killer?!
Nora frowned as she thought of the Queen’s personality and temperament…
Cherry and Princess Lucy had become close friends because Queenie had brought the former over and introduced her to Lucy. Additionally, the Queen also treated her extremely courteously.
Firstly, it was because she wanted Queenie to also establish a company like NTT in the UK -after all, one should not underestimate the power of capitalism in foreign countries. Secondly, it seemed that it was because she also wanted something from her.
What she wanted, though, was something Nora wouldn’t know. All she knew was that there were a lot of connections between NTT and the British Royal Family.
When she thought about it that way, Nora couldn’t help feeling like things had become complicated.
Just then, her cell phone rang.
Cherry’s voice reached her from the other end when she answered.
“Mommy, Princess Lucy is in Switzerland. She said that she is here to attend a meeting between country leaders and that she also wants to visit Grandaunt Queenie. Do I let her know that I’m also here?”
Everyone already knew that they were in Switzerland by now, so there was no need for them to hide it anymore.
Nora lowered her eyes.
She had only just entrusted the V16 to Queenie whose castle was an impregnable fortress. No matter how strong Barbarian was, he was still human with the limitations of a human’s body. There was no way he could ever get in!
Yet at precisely a critical moment like this, the Queen of the UK had come with the little princess. On top of that, the princess even wanted to visit…
It was impossible not to read too much into it.
But since they were already here, then she would just take things as they came!
Nora replied, “Yeah, sure.”
“Okie-Dokie! I haven’t seen Lucy for the longest time too! I love you, Mommy-“
Cherry kissed her phone before she hung up excitedly, likely off to reply to Princess Lucy’s text messages.
Nora’s lips curled into a smile.
At this moment, Black Panther standing next to her suddenly spoke. “By the way, have you met Her Majesty before? Don’t you act like a bumpkin when you meet Her Majesty! You have to stay calm, you hear? You’re representing Black Cat now, you know! You mustn’t bring shame to her name!”
However, she ignored Black Panther and looked at Karl instead. She suddenly asked, “What is the Queen of the UK here in Switzerland for?”
Karl thought for a moment and then looked around before he got Black Panther to lead the others out of the room. Only then did he walk over to the door and glanced outside.
After seeing that no one was paying any attention to them, he even closed the windows and so on before he finally lowered his voice and said, “I asked around and found out some information, but you mustn’t spread it to outsiders, okay…?”
Karl said, “I heard that it’s because some people in Switzerland want to get acquainted with Mr. King, so they asked Her Majesty to introduce them to one another.”
His words made Nora’s eyes widen abruptly. “What?”
King was coming?
That very same… King from the Imperial League?!
