A Man Like None Other Chapter 3220
“Fine! I’m not afraid,” said Miya, glaring angrily.
“Shut up, all of you! How dare you argue in Dad’s room? Do you have a death wish? Whoever dares to utter another word will immediately be imprisoned on the family’s ancestral land to reflect on their faults,” Lawrence warned coldly, which instantly frightened the others into silence.
Even Enrique could only look on defiantly without daring to say anything. After all, Lawrence was now the head of the family, so he had to obey.
Seeing that Lawrence had taken control of the situation, Jared stepped forward to check on Claudius’ condition. After conducting a thorough examination, he could not help but frown.
“What’s the matter, Mr. Chance?” Cloud asked softly.
Jared did not answer. Instead, he turned to Lawrence and enquired, “Who has
been treating your father recently?”
“The three of them…” Lawrence gestured toward the three alchemists before
asking. “Why? Is something wrong?”
“Do you still have the medicine he has been taking? Let me take a look,” said
Lawrence nodded and retrieved a bottle from the bedside. It contained the
medicine Claudius: took every day.
Taking the bottle, Jared opened it and took a sniff. The alchemists clearly looked
uneasy when they saw that and even snuck a glance at Enrique.
Realization seemed to dawn on Jared after he smelled what was inside the
bottle. Without wasting any time, he sent a wave of spiritual energy into Claudius’
body, then quickly pressed on a few points on the latter’s body with his fingers.
After that, he slowly stood up and said, “Your father does have a stubborn
ailment, but it’s not so serious to the point that it’d be fatal that quickly. The
reason why he has become so weak is because someone drugged him. I’ve
temporarily sealed off his vitals, so he’ll be fine these next few days. I’ll also write
a prescription, and you can prepare the medicine accordingly.”
Shocked, Lawrence demanded, “What? Someone drugged him? Who did it?”
Jared held up the porcelain bottle. “The medicine your father takes every day
contains Frost Honey Blossom. Although it’s a type of panacea, it cannot be
taken for extended periods. Prolonged use will cause one’s body to grow
Upon hearing that, Cade could not help cursing loudly, “D*mn it! I wondered why
Grandpa’s condition wasn’t getting any better. So, this is why.”
For him to swear showed just how enraged he was.
Meanwhile, Lawrence knitted his brows after hearing Jared’s answer and fixed
the three alchemists with an icy stare. Feeling his cold gaze on them, the trio
trembled with fear.
“Don’t listen to that brat’s nonsense. What does he know at his age? There’s
absolutely nothing wrong with the medicine we gave,” one of them solemnly
“Whether or not there’s something wrong with the medicine is not for either of us
to say. I’m sure Yellow Blue City has an Alchemist Guild. All one has to do is ask
them to determine whether I’m spouting nonsense,” Jared responded calmly.
“Go and consult them at once,” Lawrence immediately said to Cade.
Just as Cade was about to set off, however, the alchemist piped up and said,
“We examined your father’s condition and created this pill to treat him. It was all
so he could get better, but we were unaware that Frost Honey Blossom isn’t
suitable for prolonged use.”
Lawrence was infuriated by the alchemist’s explanation.
“You were unaware? It’s common knowledge. Even a rookie alchemist would
know that. The three of you don’t look all that young. Don’t tell me neither of you
knew about it?” Jared asked, a smile tugging at his lips. His response left the
alchemists bereft of words.
