The public trial that shook the whole nation was finally over.
James’ crimes were listed during the trial. However, the allegations were cleared off one by one.
As for accepting the bribes, James admitted to committing the crime.
However, the money he acquired was distributed to the Black Dragon Army and used to establish the Transgenerational Group to give back the money to the commoners. Although it was illegal, he gained the support of the people.
The Black Dragon had a Black Dragon card and was not short on money. However, he still knowingly broke the law to give back to the country.
After the public trial, James collapsed. No one knew why it happened. However, the public knew that from that moment onward, Sol had lost their War God and a great commander devoted to the country.
During the public trial, James used all his strength to hold up the Blade of Justice and put it back in place.
After leaving the courthouse, he walked through a path surrounded by people about two to three kilometers long. Once he got through the crowd, he collapsed on the ground. He remained unconscious for a long time.
James gradually regained consciousness and found himself lying on a bed with an uncomfortable ventilator over his face. He immediately wanted to take it off.
“Are you awake, James?” A feathery voice excitedly called out for him.
James slightly turned to his side.
A woman was sitting beside him. She was wearing a red dress that wrapped around her sexy figure. Her beautiful face lit up with joy.
James nodded and stretched out his hand to remove the ventilator.
Quincy quickly stood up and assisted him while saying anxiously, “You’re extremely weak right now. You can’t be moving around too much. Lie down and rest…”
James turned over and tried to get up.
Quincy hurriedly propped him up.
He leaned on the bed and asked weakly, “Where am I?”
“You’re in Capital Hospital. You passed out after the public trial and have been unconscious for one whole day,” Quincy explained.
Seeing James’ current appearance, she choked up, and tears began to flow uncontrollably.
A five-star commander, the people’s War God, was put on a public trial and was now in misery. James touched his pockets but found nothing.
“Do you have any cigarettes?” He was leaning against the bed with a slightly pale face, and his voice sounded lifeless.
“James, you’re already in such a bad state. You shouldn’t…”
“Do you have any cigarettes?”
“I-I’ll go buy them for you right now.”
Quincy was reluctant to let him smoke, but James looked so pitiful she could not bear it. Ultimately, she stood up and left through the door.
In the corridor outside the ward, the lounge area…
Many people were gathered-Cynthia from the Dawns, Thea from the Callahans, Xara, Scarlett, Henry, the Elite Eight, and many more. They sat in the lounge area without saying a word.
James had been hospitalized for one whole day. Throughout this period, they all stayed and waited.
The hospital performed a full-body examination on James, and the result was that there was an unknown virus in his body. The virus was destroying his immune system, attacking his nervous system, and drastically weakening his body.
It was a terrifying yet unknown virus.
The doctors were baffled by James’ illness.
They explained that James’ body would continue to deteriorate. His cells and tissues would gradually die off from the phagocytosis of the virus. Ultimately, the normal cells in his body. would be gone entirely, leaving only the virus cells.
This was a detailed diagnosis of James’ body through modern medical technology.
After hearing the results, everyone was in a daze and went completely silent.
Quincy walked out of the ward. Many of them saw her but did not say anything. However, Thea immediately stood up and walked toward the ward upon seeing Quincy.
James’ ended up like this because of her. He would never have ended up in this state if not for her being captured by the enemy and used as a pawn to threaten him.
She entered the ward and saw the awakened James. She walked over to him and stood in front of the hospital bed.
Tears welled up in her eyes as she looked at him.
With an apologetic and guilty expression, she said, “I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. It’s all my fault.”
James raised his head with all his strength and looked at Thea.
