Thomas knew that some people would experience poisoning from eating the Cloudy Peony, so he prepared the antidote in advance. He could provide people with some comfort while he dealt with Dragon Scale.
This time, Dragon Scale was completely doomed, and her reputation in Celandine City was definitely ruined. However, would things end like that?
Of course not.
Thomas had something else prepared for Dragon Scale, which was a fated arrangement.
“Commander, we’ve distributed all the antidotes,” Pisces said as he walked over.
“Okay,” Thomas nodded.
Pisces was a little worried as he asked, “Commander, is your arrangement going to work out? We’ve seen how Dragon Scale acted earlier. It’s not easy to deal with her. I’m worried that… Something might happen.”
If Thomas dealt with Dragon Scale on his own, nothing would likely go wrong. However, it was Dragon Claw who wanted to deal with Dragon Scale this time, not Thomas.
It was an injured person, more specifically Dragon Claw!
There were few people on the old street. The parasol trees on the sides had fully occupied it, and the fallen leaves were scattered across the ground. Dragon Scale breathed heavily as walked in the middle of the road.
“Damn it, Thomas Mayo! How dare you set me up?! Just you wait! We’re not done yet! After I go back, I’ll settle the score with you!”
However, before she could walk any further, she saw someone standing at the end of the street. It was someone whom she was familiar with but hated.
The moment she saw him, she knew she had been set up again. She immediately looked at both sides to see if any other enemies had surrounded her. She wanted to continue running away.
Dragon Claw was indifferent as he said, “You don’t have to look around. No one else is chasing after you. Not only that but the people around this street have also been evacuated. You and I are the only ones left.”
That was why Thomas did not continue to chase after her.
Dragon Scale and Dragon Claw were destined for this. They had to resolve their conflict on their own.
Dragon Scale was a clever person. After she heard what Dragon Claw said, she realized what was going on.
Thomas could have kept pursuing her. However, to let Dragon Claw personally end their fated battle, Thomas gave up on going after her. Instead, he allowed Dragon Claw to deal with Dragon Scale.
Their abilities would determine who would remain alive and who would die.
That was also why Pisces felt worried. If Dragon Claw was healthy, perhaps he would still be able to fight Dragon Scale. But Thomas had paralyzed Dragon Claw’s hands. How could he still continue to fight?
Was he planning to kill himself in this battle?
Dragon Scale had the same thought too.
She flipped her hair, laughed presumptuously, and said, “You can forget it now that your hands are paralyzed. Even in your best condition, you’re not my opponent. Dragon Claw, I really didn’t expect you to come here and seek death!”
‘Seek death? Not necessarily!’
Dragon Claw took a deep breath and slowly raised his hands, which had been restrained by bandages. Then, he started to untie the dressing in front of Dragon Scale.
As he untied them, he said, “My hands are truly crippled, and I deserve it. I don’t blame Thomas. I didn’t complete my mission, so Luck demoted me because I wasn’t capable enough. I accept it. But what I don’t agree with is you killing Heron for your personal interest! You killed someone more important to me than my life!”
“Dragon Scale, I’m not done with my grudge against you. We’ll never reconcile! Today, only one person can walk out of the street, and it will be me!”
