A man at the beginning stage of the true god status immediately cried out excitedly after he heard that.
“Heh. You’re a pretty strong warrior, Wally. If no one has any objections, I’ll nominate you as the next house head!”
Lancelot chuckled as he spoke to the middle-aged man.
“I’ve been an elder in the branch families for such a long time. I’m not prepared to suddenly become the house head!”
The middle-aged man flashed an awkward smile.
“It has to be you. You’re the strongest after our master!”
An elder said, chuckling.
“That’s right. It’s decided then. It’ll be him!”
Someone else nodded his head in satisfaction.
“Then I guess we’ve all agreed upon this decision. We saved the trouble of calling for votes!”
Sally’s gaze sidled toward Jack. “Young Master Jack, I sincerely apologize for my behavior just now,” she said apologetically. “I didn’t know what was going on. I misunderstood your intentions the moment I heard that we were reelecting our house head. Please forgive me!”
“Heh. Don’t worry. I won’t hold a grudge over something like this. I’m not that petty. Besides, you all were unaware of the situation. Your anger just now proved that Lancelot was truly a good master who served you well, no?”
Jack answered, giving a wan smile.
“Of course. He’s my father.”
Sally lifted her chin, speaking with a proud lilt to her tone.
Yet Jack just smiled as he spoke to Lancelot, “Oh, right. I discussed this with my father last night—we considered the possibility that you wouldn’t be able to hone yourself properly once you get into the White family. So we agreed that an elder who is training at the main family can bring along their wife, son, or daughter along, and they’ll get a place to themselves.”
“What! Are you serious? My mother and I can go too?”
Sally was so excited that she was practically bouncing once she heard that.
Jack bobbed his head. “But we don’t have that many accommodations in place. So the Patronums don’t get this privilege. Only the elders do.”
“Young Master Jack, I–I don’t know how to thank you!”
Lancelot stared at Jack. He was so excited that he did not know what to say. Although chi practitioners had to be in constant control of their emotions, always able to take an objective view toward things, they were still human—it would be difficult for them to leave their family behind.
It would be a lot better if he could bring his wife and daughter along.
He knew that it was Jack who had helped to secure these benefits for him.
“Young Master Jack, you’re truly a considerate man. I’ve decided that I’m yours from now on!”
Sally was elated. She spoke as she pounded her chest.
