The first one to recognize Rockefeller was none other than Jason.

Of course, the girl who followed him was just as surprised.

'Was that boy the new Guild Leader they were talking about?'

Jason thought with an incredulous expression.

'How is that boy here?'

Back then, the boy was an enigmatic, hardworking bank clerk.

A boy who recklessly overused promissory notes.

And he later heard about the outcome.

The lord went bankrupt.

'So that's what happened.'

Although somewhat belated, Jason was able to recognize who the newly appointed Guild Leader was.

The bank clerk boy he had met back then had silently grown up to become the leader of the Lyon Guild.

"Aren’t you the boy I saw in Montefeltro territory? Do you remember me?"

When Jason spoke, Rockefeller seemed somewhat surprised as well.

He expected someone from the Sinclair family to come, but he didn't expect them to visit among so many family members.

'Is it a coincidence? Or...'

Rockefeller quickly hid his surprised expression and smiled.

"It's been a while. We met once before, right? In Montefeltro territory."

Rockefeller glanced at Isabella, who had matured significantly since their last encounter.

'She's grown up quite a bit. She was just a child back then.'

"Nice to meet you."

As Rockefeller greeted her casually, Jason, who had come with her, became stern.

"How dare you! To be so disrespectful..."

But Rockefeller, who intercepted him, was no ordinary person either.

"I am now a noble, not a commoner."

Seeing him, who had become somewhat arrogant compared to before, Jason felt many things.

'People... change. If that's his true nature, was he hiding his true colors back then?'


When Rockefeller said he was a noble, Jason had nothing to say.

Different etiquette applied between nobles compared to commoners.

And he was officially the leader of the Lyon Guild.

The girl he escorted also had to show some respect to him.

As Jason quieted down, Isabella stepped in.

"I am Isabella Sinclair."

She still remembered his name.

"Rockefeller, right?"

Seeing her remember his name, Rockefeller responded with a smile.

"You remember my name. Nice to meet you, Miss Isabella. It's been a long time."

"Have you become the Guild Leader since we last met?"

"Yes, a lot has happened since we last saw each other. I am now the leader of the Lyon Guild."

As they conversed, a young lady came and stood next to Rockefeller.

It was his secretary, Elise.

"Are they your guests?"

When Elise, pretending to know nothing, asked, Rockefeller replied yes and seated the two visitors in the nearby reception area.

Of course, he did not give them the head seat.

Indirectly, he sent a message to them that he would part ways with the Sinclair family.

Feeling that they were treated differently than before, both Isabella and Jason felt complicated.

'I understand why he changed his attitude if he's the Guild Leader here.'

As far as Jason remembered, the young bank clerk he had met back then was a boy with a plan.

Although it didn't seem like much at first glance, didn't his actions eventually lead to the bankruptcy of a lord?

'He probably has a plan for cutting ties with us.'

Although he had many thoughts, Jason had no intention of making a big move in this situation.

He knew that he was not the one to step forward in this situation.

A little later, when tea was served, Isabella, who tasted it, glanced at Rockefeller, who was sitting arrogantly with his legs crossed.

There was only one thought in her mind.

'It won't be easy.'

"I heard that you suddenly changed your position in the Guild. Is there a reason for that?"

When she spoke, Rockefeller, who was sitting somewhat arrogantly, began to speak with a smile.

"If you're asking about the Crown War, we've already made our position clear."

Isabella decided to just listen quietly to what he had to say.

"We have no intention of helping the First Prince or the Third Prince. And this means we will not help the Sinclair family."

Daring to say that in front of a Sinclair family member?

Unable to listen any further, Jason, who grimaced, tried to step forward, but Isabella gently stopped him with a gesture.

"Isn't it going to be difficult for the Guild if you break off like that? And haven't we been close friends for a long time?"

At the mention of friends, Rockefeller gave a faint smile.

"That was all in the past. Since I took office, the Lyon Guild has..."

Rockefeller emphasized as he continued.

"Been reborn under this sky."

Reborn, he said.

The two magicians, who came to visit, looked at each other in disbelief.

They both suddenly wondered.

What was he relying on to act so arrogantly in front of the two magicians?

"Do you not know who we are?"

When Isabella asked, Rockefeller still maintained the same expression and brushed it off.

"I know. You are the two magicians from the Sinclair family."

"Yet your attitude is disrespectful."

At her words, Rockefeller did not deny it.

"Since we're not on good terms to begin with, what's the point of making a fuss about it here?"

Rockefeller continued.

"What I'm doing is indirectly letting you know our Guild's position. There's no other meaning to it, so don't misunderstand."

Unable to bear it any longer, Jason stepped forward.

"What are you relying on to act like that?"

At his words, Rockefeller still replied with a smiling face.

At that, Rockefeller still smiled and brushed it off.

"Of course, there's a lot to trust. I have someone named Lee Han behind me, and the Ismail family, who isn't present here, is also involved in one way or another. I'm sure you all don't know everything, but if something happens to me, it would be best for you all to be prepared."
