Quincy quickly rolled out of bed and headed to turn on the lights.
The moment the lights turned on, her acupoints wear sealed, and she could not move. Despite the lights being switched on, she could not see anyone.
“Finn, this woman isn’t bad… She’s James‘ first girlfriend and seems to be one of James‘ lovers. The two have a pretty good relationship.”
Quincy could not see anyone but heard a voice inside the room.
“Who are you, and what do you want?” she asked coldly.
However, no one answered her. Her vision went black, and she was put into a sack.
The Three Wanderers had captured Quincy and were continuing on with their plan.
They kidnapped Quincy, Cynthia, Tiara, and Scarlett, who just came back after getting off work.
The three were fourth–ranked grandmasters, so they could easily kidnap the ladies.
Unfortunately, Callan’s True Energy had dissipated, and he was just an ordinary old man. Thus, he could not sense the intruders nor did he know that his newly accepted apprentices had been kidnapped.
After the trio kidnapped Quincy and the others, they quickly left the villa. They headed to Newton’s accommodation.
This time, their targets were not only Quincy and the other girls but also Newton’s granddaughter, Serena.
The trio had been around for many years and knew that Newton was not someone to mess with. Therefore, they were not going to take any action against Newton.
“Finn, this has been Newton’s accommodation for many years. Serena lives in the room on the left on the second floor. Newton may be a strong martial artist, so we’ll have to grab Serena as fast as we can. Otherwise, if he realizes our intrusion, we may not be able to leave.”
“Alright.” Finn nodded before taking out a special anesthetic gas.
Then, he said with a smile, “This gas could put even a seventh-ranked grandmaster to sleep.”
He smiled wickedly.
James slept peacefully through the night.
It was one of the most relaxing sleep he had had in a while.
In the morning, he woke up early.
After waking up, he found Thea nestled in his arms with her arms tightly wrapped around him.
He felt warmth all over his body. James tried to move discreetly but accidentally woke Thea up.
“Honey, you’re awake?” Thea retracted her hands and rubbed her eyes groggily.
James turned over and got up, saying, “It’s still early. You can sleep for a while more.”
“Okay.” Thea was indeed still sleepy.
She turned around, closed her eyes, and continued sleeping. Within a minute or so, she fell back asleep.
James looked around the room. Their clothes were all over the floor.
James smiled, picked up his clothes, and put them on. Then, he went to the balcony and lit à cigarette.
After he finished smoking, he returned to the room. Thea was sleeping like a log.
He looked at the Malevolent Sword on the table.
The sword was black and curved with a tip like a hook.
“Is this sword really wretched?” James murmured.
Immediately, he reached out and tried to pick up the Malevolent Sword.
The sword was hefty. James exerted some force but could not pick it up.
“It’s this heavy?” James was slightly surprised.
Although he could not use his True Energy, he was still physically strong and could easily pick up fifty kilograms. Yet. he was unable to pick up the sword. He could not believe it was so heavy.
How did Thea carry such a heavy sword without using her True Energy?
James took a deep breath. Then, he slightly stimulated his True Energy.
A trace of True Energy traveled along his meridians.
“Argh…” James‘ face contorted in pain.
He quickly dissipated the True Energy, and the pain eased a lot. In just an instant, he was sweating profusely and reached out to wipe the sweat from his forehead.
My current body is too fragile. I can’t even bear a little bit of True Energy. I don’t know if I’ll recover after the New Year…
James sighed deeply.
In order to deal with the troubles about to come, he had to quickly recover and return to the Capital.
