The rest of the Crawford brothers narrowed their eyes when they heard Anthony’s words.

Gilbert loosened his wrists and cracked his knuckles; Edward, an architectural engineer with a fiery temper and tanned skin, scoffed and grabbed a rebar from nowhere.

“We’re law-abiding citizens. How can we openly assault someone in public?” Bryson, the good-natured Captain, said gently. He interjected a nurse nearby and said, “Hello, do you have a gunny sack in the storeroom?”

The nurse stuttered, “Yeah… yeah… we have a polybag and some paper boxes in the pharmacy.” She suggested the paper boxes instead, assuming they wanted to store something.

Bryson smiled and said, “Thank you. A gunny sack will be sufficient.”

The Crawford brothers thought, a sack will be useful to beat up someone.

Meanwhile, Stephen shivered in the cold as he waited outside the VIP wards. He swore in his heart, I’ve been up all night, and it’s almost daylight. Where the hell are the Crawfords?
