Unfortunately, there was a problem with her body.
Her blood had completely transformed into the Spirit Turtle’s blood.
Initially, it did not affect her body, and the Spirit Turtle’s blood was perfectly compatible with her organs. However, there was now an incompatibility.
Her blood had lost its ability to regenerate, and if she lost blood, her body would not be able to compensate for it. Her body had already stopped supplying blood to some of her organs. Therefore, she had to force the blood to circulate to some of her organs.
According to her estimation, she only had a few more years to live. Once her body ran out of blood to supply to her organs, she would die.
It was also possible for her to die from excessive blood loss.
“I-I’m fine…” Thea gently shook her head.
She did not tell James about her condition, fearing he would worry about her.
Her only wish was for James to retire as soon as possible. She wanted to use her limited time to give birth to a son or daughter for James so their relationship would not be in vain.
“Let me check…” James attempted to check Thea’s pulse.
“I’m fine. What could happen to me?” Thea smiled and stopped James from checking her pulse.
James was a strong martial artist and also a genius doctor. He would immediately know her body’s condition if he felt her pulse.
“Are you really alright?”
“I’m excellent, Honey. Trust me. I’m good. I’m really strong, and I’ll definitely live a long life. I just faced a little problem while cultivating, and it led to a backlash.”
The more Thea explained, the more worried James grew. However, Thea refused to let him check her pulse, so there was nothing he could do.
Thea changed the subject and said, “Tobias was hit with my Exalter. He’ll definitely die. Once he dies, the Phantom Army will no longer have a commander. It’ll be much easier for you to continue your plans…”
“After everything’s settled, can we retire and live in seclusion away from all of this? I’d love to have a child with you.” Thea looked at James expectantly.
She was worried that she would not have enough time to have his child.
From her calculations, she could use her energy to maintain her blood circulation for about three to five years. That was plenty of time. However, if they delayed this any longer, she might really run out of time.
She did not want to die with regrets.
“Alright…” James nodded gently.
“I’ll resolve all these matters as soon as possible.
“By the way, who do you think is the man who rescued Tobias?” asked James.
Thea said, “The person behind Tobias is the King from a hundred years ago. The person who rescued him must be a subordinate of Lance. As for his identity, I’m not sure.”
James agreed with Thea’s speculation.
He looked at Thea with relief. She truly was a different person from the past her in Cansington.
While the two communicated in hushed tones, everyone’s gaze was fixated on them.
Their hearts were in awe.
This young couple was terrifying. Both of them had formidable strength, enough to be considered the greatest in the world. The two together were truly invincible.
Who in Sol could stand against this united pair?
“Ahem, ahem. Congratulations, James,” Callan coughed a few times as he approached and said with a smile.
“I witnessed Tobias absorbing your True Energy and crippling you with my own two eyes. I’ve been brooding over it. I never expected you to recover and improve your strength so much in just half a month.”
James looked at Callan and replied with a smile, “I was fortunate enough this time to narrowly escape death. I really thought I’d spend my whole life in a wheelchair.”
“Also, Thea…” Callan turned to Thea.
He did not say much and simply clasped his hands together.
“Respect…” He could say nothing more but that to her.
