Outcast: The Alpha King’s Beloved, Chapter 359: Injured Amelia
Seeing everyone fight fiercely against Larry, my heart leapt to my throat.I wanted so desperately to join in the fight and help my friends, but I couldn’t take the risk.I wasn’t so worried about myself, but the safety of my child was of utmost priority.
For the sake of my child, I could do nothing but hide behind a wall of guards and watch the fight from afar.
Fortunately, my mate was very strong and cunning.
When he saw an opportunity, he seized it and attacked Larry.
Anthony successfully subdued the relentless Larry.
Seeing Anthony’s foot firmly pressing down on Larry’s chest, I breathed a sigh of relief.I approached Anthony, albeit still surrounded by my protective guards.
“How is everyone?” I asked as soon as I was within earshot, looking both Amelia and Morgan up and down carefully.
“We’re fine.Cynthia’s slightly injured, but Roy has already taken her away to treat her injuries.The other wizards were also injured, but fortunately, it’s nothing serious.They’ve all left to treat their wounds,” Amelia reported.
Hearing this, I nodded.Then I turned to Anthony, who was standing nearby with Larry under his heel.
“Anthony, are you okay?”
At the sound of my voice, Anthony turned around and smiled at me.
“Don’t worry, honey.I’m fine.But Larry injured some of my guards.I’ve already sent them to the infirmary.”
I wiped my brow with relief and glanced down at Larry, who was lying on the ground in a pool of blood.
His face was bloodied as well, and he looked extremely disheveled.
It was just as Amelia had said: he was an ordinary person without his wand.
Seeing him like this both startled and relieved me.
The once arrogant grand wizard had just been defeated by Anthony.
Evil could never win over justice.
After all, God was on our side.
“Just give it up, Larry.Anthony is right.Hand over the antidote and we’ll consider sparing your life,” I said seriously.
“Are you really willing to die so easily?”
“Shut up, you worthless b***h!” Larry glared at me.
“Cut the bullshit.I know you manipulated Amelia to lie to me.Why the hell should I trust you? I won’t give you the antidote even if it means I’ll die.Give up!”
I had already expected such a response.I could easily shrug off his cruel words, but the fact that he still refused to cooperate with us stressed me out.
He was still so stubborn.
Anxious, I tried to change his mind.
“Larry, we always keep our word.Don’t worry.We just want to lock you up and punish you according to law, nothing more.”
Even if Larry refused to cooperate, we wouldn’t actually kill him.
After all, with him dead, we wouldn’t be able to get the antidote to save Amelia.
But there was still the matter of convincing him to give us the antidote we so needed.
“Yes, and as the king of this kingdom, I can never go back on my word.I can swear right here and right now that if you hand over the antidote, we will spare your life,”
Anthony chimed in, echoing my sentiments.
Larry fell silent for a while.Finally, he said, “Let me think about it.”
I nearly jumped for joy.
“Okay.Rest assured, we will hold up our end of the bargain.We just don’t want Amelia to be in pain anymore.She saved Anthony and me.”
“Don’t play tricks, Larry, or else…”
Anthony said ominously, digging his heel deeper into Larry’s chest for emphasis.
“Larry, Mr.and Mrs.Jones are both trustworthy.Stop resisting and just listen to them.If you’re willing to turn over a new leave, they might just give you a second chance,” Amelia said softly, also trying her best to persuade Larry.
Our pleas were met with silence.
Larry simply glared at us coldly.
We all stared at Larry in nervous anticipation, waiting for his answer.
Just as I opened my mouth to say something more, a flash of light suddenly shot out from Larry’s hand.
And it was flying straight at me.
What the hell?! Hadn’t Larry’s wand been kicked away? How the hell was he able to cast a spell? My body moved involuntarily.
My hands reached up to cover my belly and I tried to turn away from the light.
Anthony shouted and rushed to me, leaving Larry on the ground.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have expectedLarry to use magic in that moment! I was shocked to see him attack Jennifer.
Fortunately, Anthony was extremely fast and made it in time to throw his arms around her protectively.
Just when I thought I could breathe a sigh of relief, the flash of light suddenly changed direction and attacked Morgan, who was beside me.
Only then did it dawn on me that Larry’s target was Morgan from the very beginning.
Larry was a lunatic.
Of course, he couldn’t bear the weight of my betrayal.
Now that he found out that Morgan and I had set him up, he would definitely want to kill Morgan.
Oh, my God! Why didn’t I realize this sooner? Larry was a sly, cunning, and evil mastermind.
He knew that Anthony would do everything to protect his mate, so he pretended to attack Jennifer so that Anthony would release him.I wasn’t about to let my husband get hurt.
I shrieked hysterically, rushing to him regardless of anything.
In a moment as critical as this, my mind went completely blank.I just knew that I couldn’t let anything bad happen to Morgan.
He was innocent.
It was I who got him involved with such a dangerous person.
This was all my fault.
And because I was guilty, I’d rather be punished.
Everything happened in the blink of an eye.
The moment I pounced on Morgan, I felt a piercing pain on my back, as though I had been stabbed with a knife.
The pain was so excruciating that I nearly fainted, but alas, I wasn’t so fortunate.
I could do nothing but feel the pain keenly and scream in a shrill voice until my throat went dry.
In that moment, I wanted to die.
I couldn’t take this suffering anymore.
Maybe all the disputes would end if I died.
I collapsed to the ground and tasted metal in my mouth.I spat out a mouthful of blood before I could choke on it.
Morgan screamed and rushed over to pull me into his arms.
“No, no, no! Amelia, can you hear me? Answer me.Help! Help her!”
I heard Morgan’s shrill voice and wanted to respond to him, but I couldn’t.
All I could do was feebly raise my hand.
“Morgan…” I whispered.
It sounded as though my voice was as soft as a light gust of wind.
“Amelia, you’ll be fine! Just hang in there!”
Morgan hugged me tightly and burst into tears.
“Oh, God, no! Amelia, Amelia!”
I mustered the last of the strength I had in me to reach for Morgan’s hand.
“I’m just glad you’re okay…”
“Silly girl, you didn’t need to protect me!”
Morgan wept, wincing in pain.
“I just wanted you to be fine!”
Of course I would protect him.I loved Morgan with all of my heart.I wanted to say something more to him, but I found that I couldn’t.
There was nothing I could do but close my eyes helplessly as all the life was being drained from my body.
“Help! She needs to be sent for emergency treatment!” I vaguely heard Jennifer’s voice.
I felt sorry that I had dragged them into this mess.
“Get an ambulance! Call the royal hospital and get the best doctors to save Amelia!”
A drone of different voices echoed in my ears.I tried my best to peel my eyes open, because I didn’t want to die like this.
Even if I had to die now, I didn’t want to leave this world with regret.
Where was Larry? Amidst all the chaos, he could’ve slipped away.
We needed to catch him.
Did he escape? No!
