Chapter 834 The Enemy Has Infiltrated

Sylvia’s POV:

Noreen was too cunning. Until now, I still couldn’t figure out her true purpose.

If she didn’t hate Ethan, why did she insist on K*lling him? My thoughts wandered to all the things that she had done. It didn’t seem like she had a clear purpose either. It seemed like everyone around me had already been Noreen’s pawns.

“Actually, there’s another thing I haven’t told you,” Joanna suddenly said.

“What is it?”

“My mission in the imperial palace was to a*s*sa*s*sinate the king and then pin the blame on you.” She looked at me cautiously before lowering her head and clenching her fists. “Because of the relationship you have with Harry, I haven’t been able to make up my mind about carrying out the task.”

“I guess I should consider myself lucky to have Harry as my friend, then,” I replied. I wasn’t surprised or disappointed at that point. Even if someone told me that Noreen was transs*e*xual, I wouldn’t be surprised at all.

Joanna went silent for a while before she added, “You know what? After we got along with each other, I thought you were a good person. That’s why I delayed the task for as long as I could. I actually didn’t go there to K*ll Ethan. I just received a secret signal requiring a meeting. Unexpectedly, he already fainted when I arrived there and I was caught red-handed.”

“Did Noreen leave the secret signal for you?” I asked with a frown.

Joanna shook her head. “I thought it was her, but I denied it after careful consideration. If it was a secret signal that my adoptive mother left, she would have also left a totem of the Big Dipper, but I didn’t find it this time. She took so much effort to raise me and train me to be a K*ller because she wanted me to K*ll the king someday. I just don’t see it as why she wanted to frame me.”

“Is there any possibility that Noreen found out that you wanted to betray her?”

Joanna went silent after I said that. She looked down and anxiously fiddled with her fingers.

“Noreen probably found that you were wavering and that you didn’t want to frame me, so she decided to get rid of you,” I added. I also hoped it wasn’t true, but I just couldn’t think of any other possibilities. No matter how I looked at the matter, Noreen still remained our prime suspect.

“But if she could easily take action against the king without me, why did she order me to a*s*sa*s*sinate him?” Joanna asked, a hint of determination flashed across her eyes as she looked up at me.

I sighed. “I don’t know. I still can’t understand what her real purpose is. But apart from Noreen, I can’t think of anyone else who wants to hurt Ethan.”

I was scared by the mere thought that Noreen had been with us all this time, since she was good at disguising herself as someone else. She could be hiding among us and I wouldn’t even know. 

As the king of the empire, Ethan would have people test his food every single day. That meant the person who poisoned him without being noticed was most likely someone close to him.

As I thought of that, I looked at Joanna and asked, “Did you find anything unusual about Noreen? Like, for example, when she disguises as another person?”

Joanna closed her eyes and shook her head. “I really don’t know anything. I’m sorry.”

I heaved a sigh. “It’s okay. I know you tried your best. I promise I’ll find a way to prove your innocence.”

After our conversation, I was sure that Joanna was telling the truth, for she absolutely had no reason to lie. I didn’t stay in the cell any longer. I told her to have a good rest before I went out.

I told Rufus everything that Joanna had told me after that.

He had a serious look on his face when I explained Joanna’s situation. He didn’t deal with her immediately, but instead, he asked his men to check Ethan’s trusted subordinates, as well as his recent d*iet.

“Stay with me at all times. Don’t run around on your own,” Rufus reminded me again and again. He didn’t let me go back to the palace until I promised I’d behave.
