The enchanting young lady was none other than Charmine, the girl Matthew had previously captured. She had rushed over to the building right after she escaped from The Grand Pavilion. However, she had gotten a seizure the moment she walked into the house. She collapsed onto the ground and was unable to speak at all.
Crow and the other three of them had no idea what had happened to her.
With his brows tightly knitted, Crow attempted all sorts of methods to treat Charmine. But his efforts didn’t seem to lessen her pain. not even by a little bit. Crow gritted his teeth when he noticed that Charmine seemed increasingly agonized. Finally, he pulled out a rather antique-looking box from one of his pockets.
The other three people were shocked when they saw the box.
“What are you doing, Master Crow?”
Crow glared at them. “Stop asking stupid questions. What do you think I‘m doing?“
“Th-This is a precious treasure handed down to us by our ancestors. You can’t use it just like that!“ one of the men cried.
“Charmine looks like she’s in a lot of pain, but it’s probably due to some curse, Master Crow. We can still think of other ways to save her. If nothing works, we can just send her back to Orleans for Lord Voodoo to save her!“
Crow shook his head. ”No. She isn’t just in a lot of pain. Don’t you guys realize? Her skin is starting to turn pale and even a little translucent. This is a sign that all the curse powder she has used throughout these years is counter-attacking her body right now. She must have encountered a really powerful person, there aren’t many people who can destroy all of the years she put into her curse powder. Once the curse powder spreads to her entire body, she‘ll be gone!“
The other three men became worried and one cried out loud.
“ls there some secret method to this? How could this be possible? Why haven‘t I heard of such methods?”
“That’s because this secret method hasn’t surfaced in a very long time.“ Crow replied grimly. “I remember seeing it in the clan’s records, but I can’t believe we actually encountered someone as powerful as this. It seems like the clan’s elders were right, the world is huge, and there‘ll always be someone more powerful than you. We shouldn’t have thought too highly of ourselves!” Crow let out a sigh as he opened the wooden box and took out a softgel capsule sealed in its packet.
He really didn’t want to use the capsule, but he eventually came to his decision. “Open her mouth!” he hissed. The other three men exchanged glances as they all hesitated for a moment. The softgel capsule consisted of their clan’s resurrection charm. It was passed down from each generation to the next in order to ensure the longevity of the clan leaders. The resurrection charm had been passed down for hundreds of years and had been in the hands of a few generations of clan leaders.
The clan leader brought the capsules around as the capsules were also helpful for them to improve their skills. If things went according to plan, one of the three men in the room would inherit the resurrection charm. However, the clan’s prized possession would be gone if Crow gave the resurrection charm to Charmine.
‘If that happens, we won’t get the most important thing even if we inherit the role as clan leader. What would we be left with then?’
“W-Why don‘t we think of another plan, Master Crow? This is the clan’s treasure we’re talking about. What are people going to think of our clan if we lose this?!” one of the men growled in a deep voice. The other two quickly stepped forward to back him up.
Charmine was lying on the ground. Although she was in a lot of pain, she could still hear their words clearly. Her heart ached as she listened to their conversation.
‘Heh! You only know who truly cares for you during a critical situation like this. They used to say that l was like a younger sister to them… All of that didn’t mean a thing at all! Master Crow is the only one who cares for me!’
Crow’s expression darkened. ”This resurrection charm is meant for saving people. Are you guys just going to sit around and watch Charmine die? Alright. Stop talking nonsense. Open her mouth!” he cried.
All three of them clenched their jaws as they all refused to make a move. Crow was fuming and trembling with rage at this point, but he naturally understood what his disciples were thinking about. Crow was just about to make a move when someone swooshed past them. Before Crow could give any form of response, he realized that the resurrection charm had been snatched from his hand. Surprised, he looked up to see that the person was none other than Matthew!
