The old aunty ran gleefully to get her son. Those who witnessed Thomas being indifferent after what had happened gave him a thumbs up.
“What a good man!”
Unfortunately, while Thomas was preparing to treat his patients with his needles, a fire broke out.
“What is going on?!” Thomas shouted.
Pisces took a look. He then came back and said, “We are in trouble, commander…”
“What is it!”
“Someone sneaked into our medicinal herbs storage and burnt everything including our serum-producing equipment.”
Thomas and the patient’s families were thunderstruck by the news that Pisces brought.
The medicinal herbs and equipment were all destroyed?
Just who was it who committed such atrocity?
Thomas stopped in his tracks. Without the serum, it was meaningless to perform the skill of apparent death on the patients.
Thomas knew very well who was willing to go to such an extent.
It was either Dragon Claw or Lord Vedastus.
It was meaningless to think about such a matter now. After all, what they wanted was to delay Thomas’ treatment. After that, Declan would be spreading rumors in order to drive Thomas away.
It was not the time to find out who was responsible for the incident. They should be focused on getting new medicinal herbs and equipment.
Thomas took his phone from Pisces and gave Eric, the district governor, a call immediately. He told him what had happened in the hospital and requested his assistance in delivering medicinal herbs from nearby hospitals, pharmacies, and other places.
It was nothing difficult for Eric, hence he agreed. Now, he only had to wait for them to be delivered. Thomas stared at the wall clock with a worried heart.
They were really playing dirty this time. They did not hesitate to use hundreds of innocent lives as cannon fodders in order to deal with Thomas.
They were willing to do anything and everything to achieve their goal!
Pisces said, “Please get some sleep while the medicinal herbs are being delivered, commander. You did not get a wink of rest for a very long time now. Plus, you have been working at breakneck speed without stopping.”
Logically speaking, it was the best and most reasonable choice for him to choose sleep. But the heavens were unfair. As Thomas got ready to take a nap, Eric called.
He answered the call.
Thomas asked, “When will the medicinal herbs be delivered?”
Eric sounded both helpless and angry. “All the medicinal herbs and equipment in Celandine City are in the hands of Art Trading Corporation…”
‘Art Trading Corporation?’
What a headache!
Thomas said, “Lord Vedastus has no reason to refuse our request at this point, right? Request it from him!”
Eric sighed and said angrily, “I would have already done that if that is possible. But the problem is that Lord Vedastus has gone missing!”
“That is right. The entire Art Trading Corporation has no idea where he went. Even his secretary, Lucia, is trying to contact him but it is to no avail. Without his approval, no one can touch the medicinal herbs and equipment. This is bad!”
