Kenneth shivered in shock from his mother’s ferocious remark.
Just because he had caused a scene with Charlie, not only did Anthony not want to help him, but he wanted to cut ties with his whole family too?
What kind of drug had Charlie fed him that he was so mesmerized and bewitched by him?!
Agitated and enraged, Kenneth suppressed his emotions and said, “Mom, that old coot is unreliable! He’s a crook!”
Barbara shouted angrily, “I don’t care what you do, but you’d better bring Anthony to Eastcliff on my 84th birthday to check on me and treat my old illnesses. If you don’t, just wait and see!”
People were more selfish as they got older.
The older they were, the more afraid they were of death, wishing to live for as long as they could. Barbara didn’t want to know about the feud between Kenneth and Anthony. All she hoped for was for Anthony to remain as her personal doctor.
With Anthony around, she could probably live until over ninety years old for sure, but without him, she might not even be able to pass this year’s hurdle.
Kenneth was bummed out by his mother’s scornful blame. He wanted to explain himself and complain, but Barbara didn’t want to hear any of it. She ordered her demands and immediately ended the call.
Exasperated, Kenneth vented his anger by smashing the furniture and breaking things in the room. Finally, he picked up his phone to call Anthony, trying to ask for his forgiveness and beg him to continue treating his mother.
However, Anthony’s phone was turned off.
It made Kenneth even more frustrated.
However, he didn’t dare to disobey his mother, so he quickly put on his clothes, went out of the house, and drove to Anthony’s clinic.
The clinic’s door was shut tight when he arrived at the entrance.
Kenneth grit his teeth in agitation when suddenly, he saw two figures walking out of the dark alley not far from him.
One of them was limping and looked quite familiar to him.
Kenneth quickly hid around the corner to observe them closely. As they were approaching him, he saw that it was a man in his fifties with a young man in his twenties walking together.
The young man was leaning on a crutch in one hand and a huge green gasoline drum in the other.
The middle-aged and slightly balding man was supporting the limping young man with one hand and also carrying another green gasoline drum in the other.
Kenneth recognized the young man. He was being kicked out of the clinic when he had come to seek Anthony’s treatment today.
It seemed that the men were attempting to set fire to Anthony’s clinic since Anthony refused his service!
The young man was Jason Grant, the guy that had offended Charlie in the hospital and had been thrown out of the window by Don Albert.
The incident had broken his legs, which resulted in his limping. He hated Charlie for what had happened to him. He planned to find Anthony to treat his injuries before going after Charlie to settle the score, and yet, Anthony didn’t even let him into his clinic!
He returned to the hospital and complained to his father, Justin Grant. Agitated, they had bought two barrels of gasoline and decided to burn Anthony’s clinic down.
They planned to set the Serene World Clinic on fire to teach Anthony a lesson, and then find a way to seek revenge from Charlie.
At this moment, Kenneth heard Jason ask Justin, “Dad, do you think the old coot lives in the clinic?”
“How would I know?” Justin said coldly. “Besides, who cares? If he does live inside, it serves him right to be burned to death! Damn, how dare he be so ignorant to you! Damn it!”
Jason cursed in dismay, “Damn it, the old coot doesn’t even want to help me! Burning him to death is such a cheap lesson for him!”
