“What I said was all true, master, you know it too. I never lie.”
Jaxon glared at her and said irritably, “You lie to me every day. If it weren’t for having to treat Maxim’s leg again this time, would you have come back?”
Briana nervously stuck out her tongue and said, “I didn’t come back because I didn’t inherit your mantle, that’s why!”
“You still know, huh! So when are you planning to come back and inherit?”
“Master, let’s not talk about unhappy things anymore. What are we having for dinner tonight?”
“We ate chicken stew with mountain mushrooms, and you ate vegetables!”
“The master definitely couldn’t bear to see me only eating vegetables!”
“Alright, stop talking and go help Hailey with the fire!”
“Alright, I’ll go right away!”
Seeing Briana bouncing into the kitchen, Jaxon couldn’t help but sigh and looked at Wyatt, saying, “How is that girl doing these days?”
Seven years ago, when the Schneider family came knocking on the door, Briana was studying medicine with Jaxon She was the most talented and hardworking apprentice among all of Jaxon’s students
because she was the youngest. Therefore, the other seniors doted on
Wyatt fell silent for a moment and whispered, “He must not be doing well, he doesn’t smile like he used to.”
Jaxon snorted coldly and said, “It’s no wonder. What good place could the Schneider family be? They heartlessly abandoned that girl at the doorstep of an orphanage just because of a clever prophecy.”
Later, when he went to find her, it was only because she was the one who had donated bone marrow to raise their daughter! They were nothing but a group of heartless and cruel animals!
“Master, it’s all in the past.”
“Never mind. let’s not bring up these things anymore. Someone will take care of the Schneider family!”
A hint of surprise flashed in Wyatt’s eyes, “Who is it?”
“The Cameron family was in Butterwolf!”
If the Cameron family knew the grievances Briana had suffered over the years, it would be strange if they didn’t turn the whole Bridenville upside down!
Wyatt was shocked. How could Briana be related to the Cameron family in Butterwolf?!
However, seeing that Jaxon had no intention of continuing to speak, Wyatt also did not ask further.
“Master, over the past few years, I have encountered many difficult and miscellaneous ailments. I have come this time to seek your advice.”
He took out his notebook where he had recorded various difficult
symptoms and handed it to Jaxon. His face was filled with guilt, afraid that Jaxon would smash the notebook on his head and ask him where all the knowledge he had learned over the years had gone!
However, Jaxon’s mood was good today. He didn’t scold him, but after pointing out a few typical ones to him, he threw the notebook back at him.
“The rest of my books are in my study, go find a book to read yourself!”
Wyatt quickly said, “Okay, thank you, Master!”
In the kitchen, Briana and Hailey, Jaxon’s granddaughter, cooked and chatted at the same time.
Hailey looked at Briana with envy and said, “Briana, I really want to go out too! But my grandfather said I have to wait until I turn twenty before he allows me to leave the mountain.”
Briana smiled and said, “Master is also looking out for your best interests. Although the outside world is fun, there are also many bad people. Master is afraid you might get hurt.”
“Why don’t I just go to seek refuge with you and the other seniors? With you guys looking out for me, I can walk with confidence!”
Briana couldn’t help but tap her nose and said, “It’s only two years. Just endure it and it will pass. Besides, the master doesn’t take in disciples anymore. If you’re not here to accompany the master, he will be very lonely.”
“He is not lonely at all! He said that after I leave, he will be able to live a carefree life, very freely!”
“That was the master deceiving you. It’s so pitiful for someone who doesn’t even have someone to talk to!”
Hailey was feeling a bit troubled and furrowed her brow, saying. “Grandpa can go back to Butterwolf, anyway. After all, many people hope that he can return.”
“Some people wanted him to go back, while others wanted him not to go back.”
Hailey’s eyes flickered with confusion at the words, “Why though? Grandpa has always been treating and saving people, shouldn’t others respect him?”
