“The Celestial Sect’s leader. That’s one of the strongest figures to exist in the ancient martial world. I never expected Thea, who still needed to be protected just some time ago, to become so strong in just half a year. I feel so ashamed that I’ve only just cultivated my True Energy. I’m only a first-ranked grandmaster. Thea could kill me instantly with just one move!” Henry felt ashamed.
He was no match for her at all.
“What’s the matter, James?”
“Nothing…” James closed his eyes, putting everything behind his mind.
In the backyard of the Cadens’ mansion.
Maxine was lying on a bed in a room.
Inside the room, Bennett took out a jug of wine and poured a glass for James.
James asked, “How’s Maxine?”
Bennett sighed. “Her condition isn’t looking too good. Every day, I have to use my True Energy to prolong her life.”
“Let me take a look…” James got up and went to the bedside.
Maxine was wearing white pajamas, lying on the bed. Her eyes were closed, and her face was pale.
James picked up Maxine’s hand and checked her pulse.
After a while, he let go.
Maxine’s condition was severe, and her organs showed signs of failure. She needed another person to use True Energy to maintain her vitality. She might still have a chance of being saved with Crucifier. However, James had lost Crucifier, and there was nothing he could do to treat Maxine’s injuries at that moment.
Bennett walked over.
He asked, “What do you think? Is there anything you can do to save her?”
Jamies replied, “Yes, but I’ll need Crucifier. Lucjan stole it from me, and I’m planning to retrieve it from him. By the way, Grand Patriarch, have you heard of Divine Sword Villa?”
“I’ve heard of the place but don’t know much about it…” Bennett explained, “They’re a very low-key sect and seldomly show themselves in the ancient martial world. They’re considered a secret and hidden sect. Why are you suddenly asking about them?”
“I met the Omniscient Deity from the Jade Sect and asked him about Lucjan’s whereabouts. He said that a legendary weapon was about to be born from Divine Sword Villa. Lucjan has headed there.”
“I’ve never heard about that. Just be careful over there. I have to take care of Maxine and keep an eye on her condition, so I can’t go with you.”
James smiled and said, “Don’t worry… I can handle it alone. I’ll take my leave first.”
“Alright.” Bennett stood up and personally sent James off.
James headed back to Thea’s house.
Maxine was also seriously injured and needed Crucifier to save her. He had to retrieve Crucifier as soon as possible. However, he did not know much about Divine Sword Villa, so he planned to look for Callan to get more information.
As soon as he got home, he brought Thea to see Callan.
Callan was also a doctor, so James wanted him to check Thea’s condition to see if there was anything he could do about it. If even Callan were incapable of doing anything, his only option would be to look for Thomas.
Soon, they arrived at Callan’s residence in the Capital.
When James entered, he found that Quincy was also at Callan’s house.
During this period, Quincy stayed at Callan’s house so she could ask him for advice and learn martial arts from him.
Quincy had taken a break from her busy schedule to secretly practice martial art. Under Callan’s guidance, she had met the requirement to cultivate True Every in just two months.
With a little more time, she would definitely be able to cultivate her True Energy.
“Woah! You’re here, James! What a rare guest!” Callan greeted with a smile.
“James!” Quincy also called out sweetly.
