It was obvious that Eric could not afford to take a gamble this time. But he had no choice. His only choice was to listen to whatever the other party said and prepare a helicopter in twelve hours’ time.
That was not all. He was also supposed to request for his superiors to help Luck get out of the country. The thought of it made Eric furious.
He left in anger to deal with the rest of the matter.
The sky of Celandine City was covered with clouds.
The patriarch, Declan, was in his garden in the House of Vistaria. He stared at the withered flowers as he grieved.
His entire life was spent supporting Mr. Cole in hopes that he would be able to create an antidote to Ancestral Water. But at the end of the day, Mr. Cole accomplished nothing.
His two disciples, Capricious Holy Hand Elliot, and Thomas, were both dead. There was no one in the world who was capable of creating the antidote for Ancestral Water anymore.
“Alas…” Declan sighed.
It seemed that it was impossible to break the curse that had plagued the Mars family for over a thousand years. He was still forced to be the subordinate of Luck.
Phoebe came to his father at this moment and said, “Please stop sighing, Dad…”
Declan smiled bitterly. “I can’t even feel sad for a moment at this point?”
“Is that even necessary?” Phoebe said with a determined voice, “It is not our first time facing this situation. Every time we are backed to a corner, Thomas would definitely stand up for us and turn the whole thing around! I believe that it will be the same this time as well.”
‘Naive..?’ Declan shook his head.
Compared to the past, it was different now. Thomas in the past, would have been able to turn things around, but he was not capable of doing it this time. Luck had the lives of those who drank Ancestral Water in his grasp.
How could Thomas still be alive after he drank Ancestral Water?
It was no accident as it was clear in the live broadcast that Thomas’ death was caused by Ancestral Water.
Thomas was really dead this time.
“I do not believe it!” Phoebe stared at him with an unwavering gaze and said, “I believe that Thomas will be able to turn this around. I believe in him!”
She left in anger after finishing her sentence.
Declan shook his head again as he watched his daughter leave.
He then spoke to himself, “I, too, want to believe that Thomas can turn this around for us. But the fact is, even Thomas would not be able to do so. After all, Thomas is but a mortal, not a God.”
Twelve hours passed by quickly. The helicopter had been prepared.
Surrounded by bodyguards, the helicopter was parked in front of a huge building.
A man in a mask came out. It was the infamous Luck!
Eric stood right in front of him as he stared holes in him. His gaze was full of resentment.
Luck whistled. “Thank you for the helicopter, chief.”
He walked toward the helicopter like a winner.
Before he was even halfway there, Eric waved his hand all of a sudden, and a large group of cops rushed forward, apprehending all the bodyguards and cornering Luck.
Luck was surprised. “Have you gone crazy, Eric? Do you think you can solve everything by arresting me? You are so wrong about that. I will make you regret it now! I will now make the people of Celandine City die!”
Eric sneered. “Oh really? If you can do it, then be my guest.”
Luck was dumbfounded. Since when was Eric so arrogant?
Did he not care about the lives of the people of Celandine City?
“You better not regret this!”
Luck started to control Ancestral Water and was preparing to kill the people of Celandine City.
Half a minute passed by, yet nothing happened.
“How is this possible?”
Eric said coldly, “Nothing is impossible. We have already created the antidote for Ancestral Water, Luck. You have lost!”
“You created the antidote?” Luck shook his head. “This won’t scare me. There is no one in this world that is capable of creating the antidote!”
“Oh? Really?” A familiar voice resounded at that very moment.
It was Thomas!
