Then, Abner used the ointment with Thomas’ help.
One had to admit that the effects of the ancestral ointment from Octopole was magical. His leg injury that initially could not be cured was recovering at a visible speed!
“Your injury is recovering. Mr. Porter, if you continue to apply it, you’ll be able to walk freely again in less than a week.”
Abner cried with joy. It was wonderful to get back what he had lost. Plus, he got back what he lost twice.
Thomas had previously helped him to get rid of the venom in his body, and now, Thomas had helped him to cure his leg injury. Abner did not know how to repay his kindness.
“Thomas, thank you!”
“That sounds too formal, Mr. Porter. You’re my teacher’s close friend. So, I should also consider you as my mentor. This is just something I’m supposed to do.”
The more Thomas said, the more touched Abner felt.
The less Thomas wanted him to repay his kindness, the more uncomfortable Abner felt. It was obvious that he was a good person. Others might have taken what Thomas did for granted.
Abner was extremely touched.
He subconsciously sighed. Mr. Cole really got himself a good student. With a student like Thomas, the teacher could rest in peace.
After Thomas took care of Abner’s injury and arranged for him to rest, Thomas walked out of the ward.
In Caring Hospital’s meeting room, Thomas closed the door. He sat across from Pisces, and they discussed their next plan.
Based on the current situation, Dragon Claw had already been forced into a corner. He had failed continuously, so Luck would not give him another chance. Therefore, they were likely going to encounter extreme revenge and frenzied attacks from Dragon Claw.
At the same time, they could not neglect that cruel brat, Lord Vedastus. Nobody knew when he would show up and bite them.
Pisces said, “According to the clues we have, Dragon Claw and Lord Vedastus are two different individuals who’ve cooperated but also work independently…”
“To be precise, Dragon Claw is Lord Vedastus’ superior. He can pull Lord Vedastus into his mission and get Lord Vedastus to execute many plans. We’ve seen it many times. However, Lord Vedastus doesn’t behave like Dragon Claw’s subordinate. He’s different from Heron. Lord Vedastus has his own power, ambition, and purpose…”
“Therefore, when Lord Vedastus finds out that there is a chance to attack, he’ll work independently. He doesn’t need to report to Dragon Claw.”
Those two individuals were in a subtle relationship.
Thomas leaned back in his chair and said, “One of them is sly, while the other one is cruel and ruthless. It’s really hard to deal with them when they both join forces. Now they can work independently, so we can’t even guard against them.”
He paused for a while before he asked, “What about Declan?”
Pisces answered, “We previously relied on Mr. Mars’ hints and survived their dangerous plots, but that won’t work anymore. Dragon Claw is hellbent on dealing with us.”
“He hasn’t just restricted Declan’s movement, but he’s restricted Phoebe’s as well. It’s easy to see that Dragon Claw is suspicious of them… No, we should say Dragon Claw is sure that they gave us clues.”
Without Declan as their internal spy, and the restriction on Phoebe‘s movement, they did not have any way to get any important clues from House of Vistaria.
If they encountered a sly plan like they previously did, how were they going to tackle it?
It was a real problem.
“We’ll just act according to the situation then.”
Since things had progressed to this point, they did not have any other solutions. That was all they could do. Thomas wondered what tricks Dragon Claw and Lord Vedastus were going to play again.
