Abandoned by the Alpha, I Became the Lycan King's Mate - Chapter 97 - All In vain
Benjamin stepped forward, and green energy instantly enveloped the entire hospital bed.
Everyone around the bed took a step back.
“What happened?” I asked.
‘I only went out with Benjamin for a short while. How did this happen?’
“We don’t know,” Karl said bitterly. “We didn’t do anything. We just asked him some questions. He didn’t react. We asked a few more questions. He muttered and we couldn’t hear what he was saying. Then he suddenly started to throw up blood. I was close and he threw up all over me.”
I glanced at Karl. There was indeed a bloodstain on his chest. The people around him were nodding in agreement. They all looked a little shaken.
Only Armstrong frowned and said, “Is the blood in his body poisonous too?”
Karl’s expression turned even more bitter as he looked at me.
Before I could speak, Benjamin withdrew the green energy covering the bed.
He heard what they were saying and walked over. “No, this drug works through the nervous system and requires a certain dosage to take effect. As long as it doesn’t enter your body by injection, it won’t be affected.”
I saw Benjamin give me a barely perceptible shake of his head, and knew that there was nothing he could do about the man in the bed.
Although I was mentally prepared for such an outcome the moment I saw him vomit blood, I still felt pity for him. Once he died, it would eliminate the possibility of us finding any clues from him. All our efforts over the past few days would be in vain.
It was really wasted effort.

The only good thing was that Armstrong still had the person we had caught tonight.
Armstrong and I exchanged a look. He read me and ordered his men, “Leave us.”
I glanced at Karl.
“Then I’ll go change too,” Karl said, and left the room.
Now there was only me, Benjamin, Armstrong, and the man in the hospital bed.
I stepped closer to the bed to get a closer look at the recumbent man. His breathing had become shallow. He didn’t look like he had much time left.
I turned to Benjamin and asked, “How long does he have?”
“It’s hard to say,” Benjamin said. “His organs are completely overdrawn. The side effects of this drug are too strong. I just used the healing energy to protect the last of his heart meridians, but I’m sure it won’t last long.”
“Is there nothing we can do?” Armstrong said. “We finally found this little clue. Is this person useless to us?”
“I wouldn’t say that.” Benjamin looked at me and said, “Your Majesty, could you give me his body after death? I might be able to find something.”
“No problem,” I said. “I also killed someone in the forest. You can have that body if you need it. I’ve asked Elliot to deal with it. When he comes back, I’ll ask him to give it to you.”
“That’s great. If there are different subjects for reference, I might be able to find the mechanism by which this drug works on the human body. Although there’s no way to fully understand the ingredients of the drug, this reverse inference will be helpful in further neutralizing it,” Benjamin said.
I nodded and left the man on the bed alone.
He was no longer of any use to us at the moment.
What was more important now was the person locked up in the basement of Armstrong’s home. Whether or not we could pry open that person’s mouth concerned our understanding of our opponent and whether we could counter our opponent well.
Since Angel said that she had seen the man on the way to the pack, it meant that he was unlikely to be just a small fry. On the contrary, he might be a team lead in the other party’s camp or someone more important. It was very likely that he had information about their deployment and purpose.
I looked at Armstrong. Before I could say anything, Armstrong said, “I’ll definitely guard the basement well and get some information as soon as possible.”
I nodded approvingly. In my time with Armstrong, I had always been satisfied with Armstrong’s work ability. We didn’t need to say much to come to an agreement about many things.
I muttered, “Alpha Armstrong, there’s something else I want to tell you.”
Before I could finish, the door suddenly burst open and Karl and Elliot came rushing in. I frowned at the door.
This was not Elliot’s style of doing things. He had always been polite. He had never entered a room without knocking.
“Your Majesty, we found this!”
Elliot walked toward me, holding something up. His eyes were full of excitement.
