Reaching out to feel his pulse, to his surprise, Chodak found that Matthew had been detoxified. He stammered in shock, "You...you have been detoxified!"

"Yes, I have."

"Then why do you need the Life-prolonging Pill?" Chodak asked in a wavering voice. "Or do you just want to take the pill for fun?"

A soft light flashed across Matthew's eyes. "I want to save someone else."

"When did you become so generous as to pay a high price to save another person?" Of course, Chodak didn't believe him. Nevertheless, since Matthew had been detoxified, the Life-prolonging Pill was surely of no use to him. But then who else was worth his effort to steal the bamboo slips that the emperor prized so greatly, even at the risk of his own life?

A face flashed through Chodak's mind. Somehow he sensed that it was for her, so he asked, "Is Harper the one that you want to save?"

"Yes, she is unconscious now." When Matthew revealed that Harper was in a coma, it was obvious to Chodak why Matthew was in low spirits. This knowledge gave him a warm tingle inside. If Matthew had really fallen in love with someone, that woman would certainly be his only weakness.

For all these years, Matthew had been invincible because he had no weakness. A man without a weakness was powerful and terrifying, but now, Matthew had revealed his weakness to Chodak clearly.

Having worked for Matthew for so many years, it was crystal clear to Barry that Matthew wanted to kill both Denny and Johnson to keep Harper's condition unrevealed. It was for Harper's sake that he did this.

"Yes, Your Highness." Barry took the antidote from Forsythia, turned around and left. His duty was to kill the two men in the jail.

Matthew kept company with Harper at her bedside, waiting for her to wake up. He hoped that he would be the first person that she would see when she woke up, so he didn't stir from that spot.

At dusk, Harper opened her eyes and saw the afterglow of the setting sun spreading on the man beside her, as if he was glistening. The beauty of the sight made her unwilling to turn her eyes away.

Harper stretched out her hand to touch his face, but Matthew woke up before she even touched it. He held her hand, looked at her, and said in a low voice, "Harp, you're finally awake. If you hasn't awakened, Zack would come and destroy our mansion."
