Soon, they brought Philip back to a hotel. There, Benny treated Philip with some silver needles. After half a day, he heaved a sigh, got up, and said, “He’ll be fine after a few days. He used some energy that didn't belong to him and suffered a backlash.” Cynthia sat on one side, looking at Philip with concern and anxiety. For the next few days, Cynthia took care of Philip gently and meticulously. On the third day, Philip finally woke up, but he was still very weak. “How long have I been unconscious?” That was Philip’s first question after he woke up. Cynthia hurriedly helped Philip up and said with a smile, “Three days.” Philip frowned and asked, “How’s Grandpa?” Hearing this, Cynthia’s face darkened as she said sadly, “Granduncle Benny said that the grandmaster is terminally ill and doesn’t have much time left. Even he can't do anything about it.” Philip frowned and said, “Bring me to Grandpa.” Cynthia helped Philip and came to the grandmaster’s room. In the r
Philip’s expression turned grave. The thing his mother left behind was in the sixth zone. The Multidew Herb that could cure Wynn’s golden blood syndrome also seemed connected to the Nonagon. Wynn’s memory chip was also with the Lovelace family in Cochly Mountain. Everything was related to Cochly Mountain, the Nonagon, and the stargate in Cochly Mountain. Philip was silent for a long while before he glanced at his grandfather lying on the bed and asked, “If I can enter the other shore to get the Undying Medicine, how long can my grandfather last?” Benny glanced at the grandmaster’s face, which was slightly black, and said, “I’ll try my best to keep him alive, but I don’t know how long he can last. Based on his current condition, it’ll be one year at most. In other words, you only have one year to find the passage or open the stargate to enter the other shore and find the medicine and bring it back.” After he finished speaking, Philip's face became more solemn. One year.
At this point, the choice was displayed in front of Philip. The medicine that his grandfather needed and the Multidew Herb that Wynn needed were available on the other shore. If he did not go to the other shore, he could not save his grandfather and Wynn. Moreover, Philip had always wanted to understand the secrets of the other shore. Otherwise, the civilization of this world would sooner or later be undermined by the land of the other shore. After a long silence, Philip had not decided how to face the next situation. No matter what he did, he had to first go to the sixth zone of the stargate in Cochly Mountain to obtain what his mother left behind back then. Benny looked at Philip’s serious face, patted him on the shoulder lightly, and said, “Your choice determines the fate of the people you care about and also your fate. At this point, I can no longer predict your fate. Philip, you’re the variable in this unfathomable world and the only variable in the future. You need
Before Philip’s convoy reached First Palace, Martha and Charles were already waiting. Since early in the morning, Mila was also eager to see Philip. At this moment, Martha sat in the living room anxiously and kept looking at Charles, who was sulking beside her. “Charles, tell me what we should do when Philip returns later.” Martha looked very nervous, and her face was full of worry. Charles sat on the sofa, glared at Martha angrily, and said, “How dare you ask me? If not for you, we wouldn’t be in this predicament.” Hearing this, Martha felt very uneasy and immediately burst into tears. She said, “I was cheated. Do you think I'm willing to lose so much money?” Hmph! Charles snorted coldly, feeling angry. Two weeks ago, Martha went out with some friends and learned to gamble. Gambling was no big deal, but she lost 30 million! 30 million! Charles did not know about this at first. Later, Martha felt indignant and wanted to win back the money she lost. She mortgaged
Philip was back. Sure enough, they soon heard footsteps outside. A team of bodyguards in black suits ran in. Philip and the others walked in through the door. Charles and Martha quickly got up, greeted them, and said with a smile, “Philip, you’re back.” Philip glanced at Charles and Martha, who was hiding behind Charles and dared not look at him. He did not say anything and just asked, “Where are Mila and Nelson?” Charles quickly replied, “They’re taking an afternoon nap on the second floor.” Philip nodded, went up to the second floor, and saw Mila and his young son sleeping soundly in the room. After watching for a while, he came down from the second floor and saw Charles and Martha standing and whispering to each other. Theo and the others had already gone back, while Fennel and the others were staying in a hotel. “What’s up?” Philip’s sixth sense told him that something was up between Charles and Martha. Charles was about to speak when Martha pinched him fierce
Midge was extremely flustered. He pointed at Philip tremblingly and shouted, “D-Don’t be so cocky. Do you think you’re great just because you have some moves? Let me tell you that I have a big brother behind me. If you dare to do anything to me, he won’t let you off!” Midge panicked as he looked at his buddies on the floor for fear that Philip would break his arms and legs too. Philip looked at Midge indifferently and asked coldly, “I have two questions. First, what are you doing here?” Midge thought about it and said, “T-To collect debts.” Philip frowned, looked at Martha and Charles who stood dumbfounded on the side, and asked, “What debts?” Midge immediately replied, “Your mother-in-law owes us a gambling debt of 500 million dollars. This villa and some shares of the Beacon Group belong to us now. We’re here to collect the debts today. While saying that, Midge took out an IOU from his pocket with Martha’s signature and fingerprint on it. “Look for yourself. Your mother
A few minutes later, Midge sat opposite Philip with a deck of playing cards on the table. Philip said, “Let’s go with the easiest. The one with the most points wins. You go first.” Midge was startled, and his forehead dripped with sweat. He hesitated for a long time before he drew a card from the deck. He flipped it over and saw a K. “Hahaha! I got a K!” Midge laughed. He was so lucky. On one side, Martha sweated profusely from anxiety. She thought that they would lose another 500 million for sure. However, Philip smiled indifferently and said, “As long as it's not the biggest card, I still have a chance.” Midge sneered and said, “Hehe, you can only win if you draw an Ace. Unfortunately, with so many cards remaining, your chances are very low.” As he said that, Philip casually drew a card from the deck and flipped it over. A! “I'm sorry, but my luck has always been good. I won, so take your men and get lost,” Philip said calmly. Midge was dumbfounded. He pointed a
The man smiled and said, “Interesting. You’re the first person to talk to me in that way.” Next to him, Midge pointed at Philip and roared. “Dude, you’re too arrogant. I’m afraid you don’t know the fame of Reaper Notting, the Grim Reaper of Northwood!” The Grim Reaper of Northwood? Reaper Notting? Philip frowned and shrugged as he said, “I’m sorry, but I really don’t know him. You may leave now.” With that said, Philip was about to go upstairs with Mila in his arms. Reaper Notting scowled and glared at Philip with icy eyes through his sunglasses. He shouted, “Kid, you’re too arrogant!” Bang! Suddenly, Reaper attacked. A domineering punch with mighty force slammed into Philip’s back! Under normal circumstances, as long as Reaper made a move, his opponent would surely die! Thus, all the men behind Reaper snickered. Hehe, that kid was dead for sure. How dare he provoke Reaper into taking action? However, a shocking scene happened. In Philip’s arms, Mila raised he
