At that moment, the general public was suddenly dumbfounded, as if struck by lightning. Everyone was down in the dumps.
Many of those with poor psychological strength directly collapsed on the ground.
They believed Thomas’ death could be exchanged for their own safety, but who knew, in the end, they got nothing, and Luck, as usual, used their lives as a bargaining chip to force the authorities to listen to His Majesty’s words.
No antidote to Ancestral Water would ever be created by chance.
The lives of people were still in His Majesty’s hands. Whenever luck wanted them to die, they would die without any ability to resist. However, this was not the most frightening part.
What was even more frightening than this was that the only person who could create the antidote to Ancestral Water had been forced to die alive by them. It would be impossible to create the antidote to Ancestral Water without Thomas.
Mr. Cole and Elliot had all died, Thomas was the last person who mastered the grafting technique, and his death officially marked Ancestral Water unsolvable.
Many people were crying in despair, not knowing what to do. They regretted what they had done.
At that moment, they missed the man who could always stand up for everyone at any time, Thomas, the God of War, who never seemed to be able to be killed.
They were the ones who pushed for Thomas’ death.
“No!” Someone kneeled down in front of Thomas’ body, but it was too late to regret now.
There was no good way to vent their frustration other than crying in tears.
People kneeled down one by one, ashamed of their acts against Thomas. Tens of thousands of people kneeled around the hospital, atoning for their sins and repenting for their foolish actions. That was the stupidest thing they had ever done in their lives.
Originally, there was someone who could be worth relying on, but they drove him to death.
How they wish they could turn back the clock so that the tragedy of this history would not happen. Unfortunately, the Pill of Regret never existed in this world.
Tens of thousands of people kneeled for a long time in front of the hospital.
The Twelve Golden Zodiacs’ Pisces and Aquarius stood out and carried Thomas’ body into the hospital, both with a sorrowful expression on their faces. The Twelve Golden Zodiacs did not easily shed tears even when their hearts were utterly broken.
Today, all of them shed tears.
Thomas’ family were more heartbroken and wanted to die. Emma cried until she passed out.
The entire Celandine City was in a state of mourning. The sky was dark too.
On the contrary, Luck said smilingly on the big screen, “Eric, I’m aware that you’ve secured my location and are plotting against me. Sorry, but I now hold the lives of two million people in my hands, if you force me to do so, you and I will both perish.”
“Now, I order you to prepare a helicopter for me within 12 hours and escort me safely to a foreign country. When I am stable and safe, the lives of these two million people will be safe… Otherwise, all of them will have to be buried with me!”
Eric stared at the big screen and said viciously, “You’ve already killed Thomas with this ploy, and now you’re going to do it again? I’m not even going to entertain a deal with someone like you who lacks credibility!”
Luck was happy. “Sorry, it’s no longer a question of whether you care about me or not. You must do what I say. You must understand that I now hold the lives of two million people in my hands as bargaining chips. Can you afford to take the gamble?”
