As for Nora and Charlotte, they widened their eyes in disdain upon hearing Alicia’s words.
The instinctive human behavior when introduced to a set of rules was to obey it, but there were simply some people in the world who liked searching for loopholes to exploit. Alicia was one perfect example.
To summarize: This child has no scruples!
We’re celebrating this shared victory, so why in the world must you go in the opposite way and think about swiping him away before graduation?
But now that I think about it… it actually makes sense too!
Nora and Charlotte immediately noticed the blind spot in their current plan.
There was nothing wrong with the solution Roel proposed, but the problem was that he needed time to attempt to control his bloodline. To use an analogy, it was like they were on a carriage that had barely started moving.
