Chapter 491 

The next morning, in a ward at Pinevale Hospital, Edmund’s serious condition finally turned for the better. Hel laid on the hospital bed, sleeping peacefully, with Abigail keeping watch beside him. Even though the father- daughter duo didn’t get along well on a typical day. Abigail cared for him the most when a serious matter arose. She had been busy the entire night and hadn’t gotten any sleep.

“Kid, eat something.” At that moment, Dustin walked in with breakfast. “Your father’s condition has stabilized, and he’ll get better soon. You don’t need to worry.”

“Thank you, Dustin.” Abigail forced out a smile. She took a few bites but didn’t have the appetite to continue and pushed the food aside.

“Abigail, we’re here.” Suddenly, a group of youngsters walked through the door. They were Abigail’s classmates, and they all brought something with them. Some of them had flowers, some had fruits, and others brought drinks. Among the gifts, the one most eye–catching was Mike’s panax root.

“Abigail, I heard your dad has fallen sick, so I bought this wild panax root. It can greatly replenish your dad’s health.” Mike smiled, passing the delicately wrapped panax root to Abigail with both hands.

“Thank you, but this is too valuable. You should take it back.” Abigail declined his kind gesture. She had heard

that the value of wild panax root was akin to gold.

“How can I take back a present? Not to mention, it doesn’t cost much.” Mike pouted.

“Abigail, this is a sincere gesture from Mike. Just accept it. Since your dad is injured and hospitalized, he could make good use of it.” Nina urged her gently

“Alright, thank you.” Since they’d put it that way. Abigail had no other reason to refuse.

“That’s more like it.” Mike smiled and asked, “Right, Abigail, I heard your father was hospitalized after getting

beaten up. Who dared do such a thing?”

“Uh…” Abigail didn’t know what to say. She didn’t wish for her father’s situation to be spread outside.

“There’s no need to be afraid. Just tell me what happened. It doesn’t matter who did it. I’ll make sure he pays!” Mike patted his chest with confidence.

Nina chimed in. “That’s right! With Mike here, no one would bully you. He’ll deal with any problems you have


“Abigail, there’s no need to feel bad. We’re classmates, and we’ll solve every problem together.”

The group of youngsters spoke fervently in righteous indignation.

Abigail glanced at Dustin, not sure if she should tell them.

“Abigail, why are you looking at him? He’s not the one who did it, is he?” Nina said suspiciously.

“No, no, no. Of course not.” Abigail shook her head immediately.

“Then what happened?” Nina asked again.

ally spoke. “I’ve dealt with the matter. All of you don’t need to worry about it.”

Dustin finally

“Who do you think you are? Do you think we’re not going to worry about it just because you said so?” Mike looked irritated. “Don’t think you can look down on people just because you have some money. Let me tell you, connections are far more important than wealth!”

“That’s right! The most important thing in Millsburg is connections. What can you do with money?” Nina pursed her lips in disdain.

“I said that for your own good. You guys can’t afford to offend the perpetrator.”

“What a joke!” Mike scoffed loudly. “Do you know who I am? Do you know who my father is? And you’re saying I can’t afford to offend that person? What a bold statement.”

“Hey! I advise you not to underestimate others. You’ll never be able to compare with Mike’s background,” Nina said condescendingly.

Mike continued to be insistent and cocked his head up, acting all high and mighty. “Why are you silent? I’m curious to know who exactly it is that I can’t afford to offend,
