“Stop talking nonsense!” Autumn glared at him.
“Uncle, I have a healing pill here. Shall we let Grandfather try it?” Patrick suddenly stepped forward from the crowd, holding a Gemiphen. He wouldn’t take such a risk if his grandfather’s condition weren’t critical.
“A healing pill?” Torben furrowed his brow. “This thing looks suspicious. Where did you get it from?”
“A friend gave it to me,” Patrick answered truthfully.
“Hah! Your friends? They’re a bunch of useless people.” Torben sneered. “Take that pill away quickly, and stop embarrassing yourself here.”
“Grandfather’s condition is not looking good right now. I want to give it a try. What if it actually works?” Patrick
“I said it’s not going to work! Take it away!” Torben slapped the Gemiphen out of Patrick’s hand.
“You-” Patrick frowned.
“What? You got a problem? Should we settle it with a fight?” Torben clenched his fist, displaying his robust
muscles. Patrick was known to be a weakling in their family. Torben could easily knock him out with a single
“I can’t be bothered to talk to you!” Patrick took a deep breath and finally held himself back. As he was about to pick up the Gemiphen from the ground, a foot suddenly appeared and crushed the pill.
“What are you doing?” Patrick’s face darkened.
“Hmph! What’s the use of keeping such a worthless pill? What if it upsets grandfather’s stomach?” Torben said arrogantly. While saying that, he stepped on the pill even harder, grinding it into powder.
“Torben! You’ve gone too far!” Patrick clenched his fists.
“Disrespectful brat! How dare you talk to your older cousin like that?” Spring glared at Patrick and immediately began protecting Torben.
“Uncle, he was the one being unreasonable!” Patrick furrowed his brow.
“Nonsense! My son is just concerned about his grandfather’s safety. Who knows if that pill of yours is
poisonous?” Autumn spoke arrogantly.
“That’s right! What if you’re trying to harm grandfather?” Torben said haughtily. With his father backing him up. they could easily bully Patrick.
“That’s enough! Father is sick, and you’re still bickering here and there. What do you think you’re doing?”
Spring spoke sternly. Instantly, the guys shut up.
As the eldest brother, he still carried some authority.
“They’re here! Mr. Turner from Stoneray Valley has arrived!”
Suddenly, a voice rang out from the entrance. Soon after, a thin man in a black robe slowly walked in with a
“Mr. Turner, you’ve come just in time. Please hurry up and take a look at my father!” Spring quickly led the man to the bedside.
“Everyone, please remain calm. Allow me to examine him first.” Nicholas sat down slowly and began feeling Paul’s pulse. After a while, his eyebrows furrowed. “Everyone, the patriarch’s situation is grim. The internal injuries have accumulated too long and suddenly erupted with great force. His meridians are shattered, and his vital energy is in disorder. With my abilities, I’m afraid I can’t do much to help.”
“What?” Spring panicked. “Mr. Turner, you’re an elder of Stoneray Valley. If even you can’t treat him, who else can?”
“Unless my master comes out of seclusion. Otherwise…” Mr. Turner shook his head.
“My father would have passed away by the time he comes out of seclusion!” Autumn frowned.
“Wait!” Suddenly, Nicholas sniffed and said, “What a fragrant medicinal scent. Do you have any miraculous panacea here?”
“What do you mean by panacea? We would have let Grandfather take them if we had any.” Torben replied rudely.
However, Nicholas ignored him. Like a hunting dog, he kept sniffing and tried to search for the smell Soon, he fixated his gaze on the crushed Gemiphen, and his face fell immediately.
“What… Who did this? Such a waste! Such a terrible waste!”
