“Did you really think that anyone, no matter who it is is worthy of me taking their money?”
When Sean Lennon said these words, it felt like lightning had struck Mr. Lowe.
Jack Tomme, who was at the side felt a sense of superiority arose from the bottom of his heart.
It was almost like he was extremely proud of the fact that Sean actually took his money.
After Sean was done speaking, he turned his wheelchair slowly and was about to leave.
“Mr. Lennon, you… Please forgive one another when you can…”
Mr. Lowe’s face was ashen as he pled.
When Sean heard what he had to say, a smile crept onto his face.
Forgive each other while he could?
That was for other people to do.
As a former nine–star commander, Sean was already considered merciful if he would give someone a chance.
He was the supreme one in the army, he bore nine stars on his shoulders.
There was a saying that went, ‘a general’s reputation is built on thousands of corpses‘. For him to stand at the peak of the top, no one knew exactly how many people he had to bury to get to where he was.
This was a path that was built on bones and blood.
Mercy was something that had never existed in Sean’s vocabulary.
That was why, to Sean, what Mr. Lowe said was nothing but a joke.
After Sean and the others were long gone, Mr. Lowe looked like he had failed the test of life as he slumped trembling on the floor.
He could already imagine what his life would be like after that day.
Outside the office.
Homer and Hayden were both waiting further up ahead for Sean.
Naturally, Sean was saying his goodbyes to Leah and Candy.
“Take this card with you, Leah. and keep it.
“Remember, don’t tell anyone about this.”
Sean took out the bank card and passed it to Leah.
Leah was married into the Quinn family but was now widowed.
Her life was not any easier when compared to Sean’s.
Even her mother–in–law thought she was a shame since she only had a daughter who could not carry on the family name.
Her situation was actually extremely difficult.
“Sean, I cannot take this money.
“You should keep it. Candy and I, we don’t need much.”
Leah shook her hands and refused to accept the card.
“If it’s given to you, take it.
“After today, if you really can’t bear the Quinns‘ anymore, at least you’d have a way out.”
Sean did not explain further as he forced the card into Candy’s tiny hands.
After hearing what Sean had said, Leah bit her lip lightly.
“What about you?
“If you can no longer bear the Quinns‘, you’d need money too.”
Leah looked like she wanted to say more, but she did not.
“Yeah, Uncle Sean, I can ask my granny for money.
“But Uncle Sean, if you have no money, you can’t buy Tootsie Rolls anymore.”
Candy squeezed herself into Sean’s embrace and said solemnly.
Sean burst out in laughter and said, “Uncle Sean has a lot of money!
“The money that I have? Two million is an understatement. Even if it’s two million or twenty million, Uncle Sean can take it out anytime, just like that.”
As a nine–star commander, the pillar of their country, money was nothing but
numbers to Sean.
“You’re so good at bragging now, Uncle Sean!”
Candy pouted, her face was colored with disbelief.
Sean merely guffawed, he did not explain any further.
Leah, on the other hand, merely thought that Sean was pulling their leg.
“Right then, I’ll just keep this money temporarily.
“Sean, if you ever need money, just come take it back anytime.”
Alas, Leah did not go against what Sean wanted and kept the card with her.
Sean nodded as he watched the mother–daughter pair leave in a cab.
After that, he turned his wheelchair and met up with the Homer–Hayden duo.
“Mr. Lennon, let’s find a place for us to rest.”
The current Hayden was now extremely friendly towards Sean as he stepped up and took the initiative to push Sean’s wheelchair.
In a clubhouse in River City.
Sean, Hayden, and Homer were sitting together.
An expensive tea set was placed on the table, with the most exquisite Earl Grey tea brewing in the pot. Its fragrance wafted freely from the pot.
“Mr. Lennon, this is the tea of my choice today, I hope you’ll enjoy it.”
Hayden had personally filled a teacup with tea and handed it over to Sean.
“Mr. Lennon, I really do have to thank you!
“You have no idea how much medication I have taken for my condition, and how many doctors I have visited.
“None of them helped, and all you did was a few jabs of your special needle treatment, and my problem is solved!
“I really couldn’t thank you enough!”
At that moment, Hayden was unabashedly expressing his heartfelt gratitude towards Sean.
Hayden really wanted to befriend this genius of a doctor that was a rare gem to find.
No matter how high one’s statuses were, or how much money one had, no one could pay disease to go away if they fell sick.
If he could befriend Sean, it would be equivalent to extra life insurance!
“Don’t mention it, Mr. Luke, it’s merely a small gesture.”
Sean waved his hands and replied casually.
“Cough, Mr. Lennon, from now on I… no longer need another round of jabbing, right?
“I’m so worried that… It’s not completely gone…”
Hayden was slightly hesitant before his worries got the better of him.
“If you ever experience any problems, just come look for me.”
The moment Sean said what he said, Hayden’s nerves were instantly calmed.
“Mr. Lennon, there’s no problem at all with the list of herbs that you wanted. “However, the Lilac Heart Weed… What is that?”
Homer was sheepish.
They at Larson Pharmaceuticals were the largest medicine distributor at River City with all kinds of medication and herbs at their disposal.
However, he had no idea what a Lilac Heart Weed was.
