At War With Herself
As soon as he entered the room, Jared saw Tommy lying on the bed. Tommy’s face was drained of
color, his chest looked irregular, and there were bloodstains all over his body.Tommy opened his eyes
slightly when he heard footsteps. When he saw Jared, he tried to get up but couldn’t.
“Don’t move. Let me take a look,” Jared said as he quickly walked up to Tommy and put a hand on
Tommy’s shoulder. Meanwhile, his other hand gently scanned over Tommy’s chest.
At that moment, Jared had a terrifying expression on his face.
“Mr. Chance, I’m so sorry. I failed to protect Ms. Sullivan from that f-frightening experience!” Tommy
“It’s all right. You should stop talking for now. Your opponent was very strong. You’re not a match for
Jared could deduce how strong Wilbur was through Tommy’s wounds. It looked fatal, but it wasn’t.
Regardless, it would take a long time to recover from it. It was obvious that Wilbur didn’t want to kill
Tommy. Instead, he wanted Tommy to suffer.
After that, Jared moved his palm over Tommy’s chest and channeled some spiritual energy into the
latter’s body. At that moment, a wave of warmth washed over Tommy’s body as if he was soaking in a
hot spring. In a matter of seconds, he couldn’t feel the pain anymore.
Tommy’s broken ribs healed themselves with the help of Jared’s spiritual energy. His chest completely
recovered to how it used to be in an instant.
Once it was done, Jared retracted his hand, and beads of sweat formed on top of his forehead. It was
because he used up a massive amount of spiritual energy to heal Tommy’s wounds. If he hadn’t taken
his energy condensing pill and attained Level Nine, he might not be able to heal Tommy in just one
“I’m done. You can get up now,” Jared said while letting out a long breath. He walked to a nearby chair
and sat down to catch his breath.
Tommy got up and sat on his bed as soon as he heard what Jared said. He was surprised to see that
aside from the scratches on the surface of his skin with some blood oozing out from the wounds, he
was almost completely healed.
“Thank you, Mr. Chance!” Tommy thanked Jared as he looked at the latter.
“Your body still needs to recuperate from the wounds, so don’t get into a fight for now. I’ll make a pill for
you shortly. Once you take it, your body will be fine.”
“All right!” Tommy nodded.
At that moment, Zeke gawked with his mouth wide open at what he had just seen. How did a wound
that serious recover in such a short time? Is that an immortal technique? Could it be that Jared is an
Jared was completely oblivious to what Zeke was thinking. He asked Tommy, “What exactly happened?
Tell me everything!”
With that, Tommy told Jared everything that had happened. When Jared heard that the Whitaker family
sent their people, he clenched his fists tightly, and his expression darkened in response.
“Jared, you’re back?” Josephine asked as she and Frida walked out of their room after hearing some
noise in Tommy’s room.
Jared walked up to Josephine straight away and hugged her when he saw how pale she looked. “I’m
sorry. It’s my fault that you had to go through that because of me. I promised you that I wouldn’t let you
get hurt, and I’d always protect you, but I—”
Josephine covered his mouth to shush him up immediately. “I’m fine. Don’t blame yourself. I’m really
okay. B-But… But Yasmin…”
“I know. Tommy told me earlier. I’ll save her for sure!” Jared promised her with a determined expression
while holding her hand.
“But… But won’t you be in danger?” she asked.
At that moment, she was at war with herself. A part of her wanted him to go and save Yasmin, but
another part of her didn’t want him to get into danger.
