The old woman was completely speechless as she stood there dumbfounded, unable to say a word.
There were also those who originally intended to cause trouble together. However, after listening to Thomas’ words, all of them restrained their impulses as much as possible, as they did not want to end up in the same situation as the old woman.
Just now, they had clearly heard Thomas’ bold proclamation.
He was capable of saving people. As long as he was able to save people, everything could be sorted out!
In fact, this was what Thomas had learned from years of battle. He knew that at the moment, these people no longer acted rationally. Despite talking to them nicely, they would not listen to whatever words he offered.
How could he make them listen?
He had to frighten them!
“I am capable of saving them, but I will not save anyone who refuses to listen to me.”
Who would dare to cause trouble after hearing this?
But if Thomas failed to save them, they would cause even more of a ruckus than before. However, everyone had simmered down because of what he said.
Among them, only the old woman was unhappy, and she yelled, “You son of a bitch! How do you still dare to throw more empty words at us?! Get the hell out of Celandine City! Fuck off!”
But it was pointless to say such words at this point. Because apart from her, everyone else who had come along to cause trouble had surrendered to Thomas.
Not only did they not create trouble with her, they even stood by Thomas.
An old man yelled, “What are you yelling about? Can you please stop being so unreasonable? Mr. Mayo said that he could cure our friends! We have to trust him fully. We don’t care about your life, bitch! But if you want to cause our friends and relatives to die along with you, I’ll be the first to object!”
“Yes, we won’t agree either!”
The group of people who stood on a united front just now switched sides.
The old woman was confused. She even attempted to grab Thomas’s sleeve and act shamelessly, but it did not work out.
The middle-aged men and women there were all adept at acting shamelessly. No one would waste their time with her even if she acted shamelessly.
Everyone came over to stand in front of Thomas to separate him from the old lady, allowing her to fool around as she wanted, but preventing her from approaching Thomas. When they spoke to her, each of their words was more ruthless than the last.
Thomas made a brilliant move in sowing discord among them and causing them to fight among each other. In this world, the only person who could handle this old woman were other old folk.
Time was running out.
Thomas said to the group, “I’ve already contacted Caring Hospital to have them arrange for empty beds, so let’s hurry up and get your friends and relatives to the hospital.”
“Caring Hospital? Okay, good, let’s go!”
Then, Thomas rushed to Caring Hospital together with Pieces, while the others rushed to transfer their poisoned friends and relatives to the hospital. As for the old woman, she could do nothing about the situation aside from roll around the floor and emit more noises.
This scene was being monitored by a car in the distance.
Inside the car, Dragon Claw was holding a pair of binoculars in one hand and a bucket of fried chicken in the other. He watched them as he ate.
After watching the whole process of Thomas deal with the situation, he tossed the binoculars to the side and said unhappily, “Holy shit, this Thomas has some serious skills. With just a few words, he defused the crisis that I had meticulously planned.”
In truth, Dragon Claw had not expected this tactic to successfully take Thomas down. After all, those ordinary citizens had limited abilities, and how much harm could they really do to Thomas?
Heron said, “There are currently 113 people who have been poisoned, and there is only a 24-hour window to save them. I don’t think Thomas is capable of curing everyone in such a short period.”
After a pause, he added, “Besides, I don’t think he can even treat one person, much less 113 people. That is the two-headed snake venom, not ordinary snake venom. Even the snake king, Abner Porter, is helpless against this venom. Heh! I can’t believe Thomas would think that he can cure them using a serum. What a retard!”
What Heron and Dragon Claw did not know was that Thomas had been aware of the two-headed snake venom for some time and had teamed up with Abner to come up with an antidote.
