The Formidable Son-In-Law: The Charismatic Lucas Gray - Chapter 382
He had already done everything he should, and the old man’s condition had already stabilized too. He just had to wait for the ambulance to arrive.
A short while after Lucas left, a red Maserati pulled over at the roadside, and a young woman in her twenties opened the car door and frantically dashed out. While yelling ‘Grandpa’, she rushed toward the crowd and leaped toward the old man.
“Grandpa, are you alright? Your heart rate monitor app showed large fluctuations in your heart rate just now. I was so scared!” The young woman’s eyes were red, and she seemed on the verge of tears.
Her grandfather had a serious heart disease, so there would be people taking special care of him all the time. But today, he suddenly said that he wanted to go out to meet some old comrades in arms and thus walked around on the streets nearby. But he had a heart attack soon after he left.
The white-haired old man stroked the head of the young woman lovingly and comforted, “Don’t worry. I’m fine now. Actually, it’s all thanks to that young man who just saved me. Otherwise, I might have really died here.”
“Young man? A young man rescued you? Where is he?” the young woman hurriedly asked while looking around.
The onlookers quickly avoided eye contact with her somewhat embarrassedly. After all, they had all thought that the old man was a conman, so none of them had dared to go forward to help and almost watched him die in front of their eyes.
The white-haired old man sighed and said with regret, “That young man left after seeing that I was fine. Unfortunately, I didn’t even have time to ask him for his name.”
The young woman shifted her gaze onto the butler-like man who got out of the car together with her. “Uncle Alan, there should be surveillance cameras around here. Quickly find out who the young man who saved my grandfather is at all costs! Then prepare three million dollars in cash as a thank you gift for that kind Samaritan!”
After giving out instructions, the young woman turned around and stuck her tongue out at the white-haired old man. “Grandpa, there’s nothing wrong with this arrangement, right?”
The white-haired old man nodded in approval. “Well done. He saved my life. We really should find him and thank him properly!”
After hearing their conversation, the onlookers were all stunned!
They’re giving that young man three million dollars just because he saved the old man’s life? How generous of them!
Strictly speaking, Lucas hadn’t applied any special technique when rescuing the old man but had simply taken out the emergency medication from the pocket of the old man’s clothes. The onlookers felt that it was something that they could easily do!
Yet Lucas would be rewarded a handsome sum of money that they might not be able to earn in this lifetime by working hard for the rest of their lives. It was even easier than winning a lottery ticket!
At this moment, all the onlookers were chagrined and full of regret. If they had known earlier that the old man was so wealthy that he would casually give a reward of three million dollars, they would have rushed to save him just now.
Unfortunately, there was no medicine for regret in this world. Regardless of how much they regretted their passiveness, there was nothing they could do now!
But many people had made up their minds and decided that they would definitely take the gamble and step up to help people in need if they ever encountered such an unexpected situation again. In case they were lucky enough to rescue a tycoon like this old man, they would no longer have to slog their guts out for the rest of their lives!
The old man and his granddaughter were unaware of the changes in the mindsets of the onlookers.
As the young woman and the butler beside her helped the white-haired old man to the car to take him to the hospital for a thorough checkup, another luxury Audi sedan pulled over by the road.
The car doors opened, and two old men who similarly had white hair alighted.
The two old men were none other than Robert Heron and Sam Morgan, who had just left the Turner residence.
“Mr. Cole… are you okay? When you called us just now, you said that you were about to reach the restaurant we agreed to meet at. Robert and I waited for you for a long time, but you still didn’t show up, so we got really worried that you might have had a mishap!” Sam looked around to see that the crowd hadn’t dispersed yet and looked worriedly at the old man being held by his granddaughter.
The white-haired old man was Edmund Cole, the head of his family. He laughed twice and said smilingly, “What are you being so formal for? We’re old friends. Just call me Edmund like before! Robert, Sam, it’s been a long time since we last met, huh?”
“Haha, okay. Then we won’t be formal with you, Edmund!”
Robert and Sam seemed really agitated, but they were much more relaxed than before.
After all, although the three of them were comrades in the same squad back in their military days, their statuses were now worlds apart. Since Edmund was still willing to care about their old ties, it was naturally best.
“Come, Alexis, greet Uncle Sam and Uncle Robert. They’re my old comrades who fought alongside me through thick and thin on the battlefield back then!”
“Hello, Uncle Sam, Uncle Robert,” the young woman named Alexis immediately greeted the two of them graciously.
“Hello!” Robert was excited, surprised, and flattered.
Strictly speaking, Sam was the one who was close to Edmund when they were in the same squad back in the day. Robert only became somewhat closer to the esteemed Edmund later because he was friends with Sam.
While the few old friends were reminiscing about the old times and catching up with each other, an ambulance arrived with the sirens ringing loudly.
“We just received a call that there’s a patient here who requires emergency rescue. Where is the patient now?” asked one of the first two paramedics who got out of the ambulance.
Alexis Cole hurriedly pulled Edmund and said, “Grandpa, you had a heart attack just now. You may have recovered from it, but we’d better get you to the hospital for a thorough check!”
Sam and Robert were shocked to hear this. “Edmund, what happened to you just now? Why did you get a sudden heart attack?”
Edmund waved his hand and said with a bitter smile, “Well, it’s an old ailment. I was walking over to meet you guys, but I suddenly had a heart attack along the way. Fortunately, a young man saved me. Otherwise, I’m afraid you two wouldn’t be able to see me anymore!”
Both of them were so frightened by what Edmund said that they broke out in cold sweat while feeling glad and thankful that a young man had saved Edmund. Otherwise, he would have died on the way to see the two of them. Even though they weren’t the cause of the heart attack, the Coles would probably put the blame on them!
“Fortunately, that kind Samaritan saved you. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have been able to live at ease for the rest of our lives. Actually, that young man is our benefactor too!” Sam said emotionally with lingering fears.
“Yeah, I wonder where that young man is now. We really have to thank him properly!” Robert said with a thankful expression while scanning the crowd.
