Abner took out some needles before he opened a few jars.
The jars contained strange liquid in various colors, including green, red, black, and purple. People could have mistaken them for dyes.
“I’ll begin right now!”
Abner reached out to dip the needles into the jars before he inserted them into Pisces’ body.
While he operated, he explained, “These jars contain special liquid that I deploy with the venom. Now, I’m going to inject the venom into your body using the needles, and you have the time of an hourglass to live. If Thomas can’t cure you before the sand in the hourglass runs through, you can report yourself to heaven.”
Pisces was indignant. Although he was mentally prepared, he still felt quite nervous and anxious when he had to actually lie down and be injected with venom.
After all, he was gambling with his life!
After one silver needle was inserted, he was jabbed with the second needle. In total, ten needles with ten different types of venom were inserted into his body.
Various kinds of venom interacted with each other inside Pisces’ body, generating more responses.
Pisces’ face was purple, his lips were green, his hands were red, and his legs were black! His body was covered in different strange colors as if he had been soaked in a big vat of dye.
When someone became like that, would he still be able to live?
The housemaid inverted the hourglass at the side according to Abner’ s instruction.
Abner cast a glance at Thomas before he said, “Bear in mind that the hourglass is counting down. Your skills will determine whether you can save your companion’s life. You can use all the medicines and equipment I have here…”
“Since it has begun, there’s no turning back. Thomas, just do your best. Don’t let your people die in my place. It will bring misfortune.”
After he was done speaking, his housemaid pushed him to a corner and silently watched as Thomas performed.
Thomas inspected, listened, inquired, and checked on Pisces’ pulse rate. He did not neglect the most basic steps just because there was a lack of time.
He moved a stool over and sat beside Pisces. Then, he examined Pisces from head to toe while he asked him about his condition.
“Commander, I feel uncomfortable… My upper body feels hot, and my lower body feels cold. Besides, I feel very dizzy…”
“Most importantly, I can’t seem to feel my limbs for some reason. It’s like my limbs have been amputated. I…”
In the beginning, Pisces could still speak normally. A minute later, he was totally unconscious. He could not even engage in a normal conversation. His body shivered while he was unconscious.
The venom had started to take effect!
Thomas had to hurry up. The venom was getting stronger. If this situation went on, Pisces would really lose his life.
Pisces was clearly important to Thomas, but Thomas was also running out of time.
Others would have become so nervous and flustered by now. They would have even given up. But Thomas did not. He was quite calm.
He knew that being nervous would not let him succeed but only make him screw things over.
After the initial inspection, Thomas took out a needle.
After Abner saw Thomas’ needle, he subconsciously exclaimed, “Asclepius Needles? You actually have this treasure! Lad, you’re really lucky!”
