Maxim’s decision was final, and even though Briana protested, it was of no use. Briana simply nodded and said, “Alright, so where will Dr. Waylon and I be staying tonight?”
“Later, Rayan will give him a separate room, as for you, you will stay with me.”
“Okay, then I went out first.”
After Briana left, Maxim made a phone call and coldly said, “Find out where they have been these past few days, according to the direction Briana and Wyatt came from!”
Maxim only believed half of what Briana said.
She purposefully distanced herself from Wyatt, how could he possibly believe that what Briana said was so simple? She must have something else hidden from him!
In the evening, after dinner, Briana had planned to go out for a walk. However, she did not expect Maxim to suddenly suggest that Wyatt give him a special treatment.
Briana knew that he was still doubtful, but she didn’t refuse. She immediately called Wyatt.
Soon, Wyatt came up with the toolkit.
“Mr. Yoder, the first special treatment may be more painful than three years ago. If you can’t bear it, please let me know at any time.”
“Good job, Dr. Waylon.”
Wyatt had Rayan lay Maxim flat on the bed and instructed Briana to step aside. After that, Wyatt had Rayan undress Maxim, removing his clothes and pants, and then began administering the injection.
Wyatt would ask Maxim if he had any pain every time he didn’t get pricked.
Until he hit a point behind his calf, Maxim’s face suddenly changed and sweat started to bead on his forehead.
“Mr. Yoder, from now on, the pain will increase and if you can’t bear it, you must tell me.”
Wyatt continued to administer the injection, and Maxim’s expression also became increasingly grim.
Until the last injection was administered, Maxim was covered in
A hint of admiration flickered in Wyatt’s eyes. He hadn’t expected Maxim to be able to endure and persist through such pain, most people would have given up after the first injection.
“Mr. Yoder, I will come to pick up the needle in half an hour.”
Maxim was in so much pain that he could hardly speak. He could only manage a “uh” from his throat, as the pain in his legs seemed to instantly amplify tenfold.
Half an hour later, when Wyatt removed the needle, Maxim’s face had turned pale as paper.
“Mr. Yoder, you can try to get out of bed and walk a little later. You should be able to take a few steps now, but your legs will be much more painful than when you received the injection before.”
Maxim nodded and said, “Alright, please ask Dr. Waylon to bring
Briana in for me.”
When Briana came in, Rayan had already helped Maxim put on his clothes.
Seeing Briana, Maxim reached out his hand and said, “Help me up.”
Briana stepped forward and helped him up, with Maxim almost putting half of his body weight on her.
“Dr. Waylon just said that I should be able to take a few steps.”
With Briana’s support, Maxim took his first step slowly. However, the pain in his legs made him break out in a cold sweat instantly, and he couldn’t help but let out a groan.
The two of them were tightly pressed together, and Briana could feel his entire body trembling slightly, with his muscles tensed to the
Briana frowned and said, “Mr. Yoder, why don’t we wait until after the three injections before attempting to walk? The pain will be much less by then.”
Maxim shook his head and said, “No need.”
With Briana’s help, Maxim took a few steps forward, and suddenly the pain in his legs disappeared. He lost all sensation and his body fell straight to the ground.
Briana quickly grabbed him and moved him back onto the bed.
“Mr. Yoder, I went to fetch some water to wipe your body.”
She was about to get up and walk towards the bathroom when her wrist was grabbed by Maxim.
“Briana, how long did it take for my leg to heal?”
