Chapter 1282 A Spoilt Granddaughter
“Grandfather, why do you keep bringing strangers here?” Roselyn frowned, appearing somewhat displeased.
“Roselyn, show some respect!”
Dr. Elijah’s expression turned stern. “This young man just helped us at Healwell and has done us a favor. I naturally wanted to invite him in for tea.”
“What can he do for us?” Roselyn scrutinized Dustin skeptically.
“Just a while ago, Healwell had a medical mishap, and this young man came to our aid. Otherwise, our reputation would have been ruined,” Dr. Elijah explained seriously.
“If that’s the case, Grandfather, why do we need someone else’s help?” Roselyn still didn’t believe it.
Healwell had a strong reputation, and many patients who couldn’t be cured at other hospitals were referred here.
How could someone as young as Dustin possibly be better than Healwell’s physicians?
“Roselyn, appearances can be deceiving. Although Dustin is young, his medical skills are exceptional, and he’s not inferior to you!” Dr. Elijah replied.
“You say that every time, but fine, whatever. You can talk to him; I’m going to my room,” Roselyn said indifferently, giving Dustin a sideways glance before heading to her own room.
“Young man, my granddaughter has been spoiled by me and doesn’t understand manners. Please forgive her.” Dr. Elijah sighed.
“It’s not a problem at all. Miss Roselyn is quite candid,” Dustin replied with a slight smile.
“Come, have a seat and let’s talk.”
Dr. Elijah gestured for Dustin to sit down, poured a cup of tea, and then asked, “Young man, I wonder why you’ve come to see me?”
There were only two reasons people visited Healwell: to seek medical treatment or to become an apprentice.
Dr. Elijah secretly hoped it was the latter.
“Dr Grantwood, to be honest, I came to Healwell to inquire about someone,” Dustin got straight to the point.
“Oh? Who are you looking for?” Dr. Elijah was curious.
“Have you ever heard of a person named Lorenzo Doley?” Dustin asked, his gaze sharp.
” Lorenzo Doley?”
Dr. Elijah was momentarily taken aback, and a trace of astonishment flickered in his eyes. However, he quickly regained his composure, as if nothing had happened.
But Dustin had noticed this subtle reaction.
“Young man, I don’t know anyone named Lorenzo. You must have mistaken me for someone else,” Dr. Elijah denied with a shake of his head, feigning ignorance.
“Don’t know him? But I’ve heard that Lorenzo is at Healwell,” Dustin squinted.
“Healwell has hundreds of patients every day, and I don’t know if there’s anyone named Lorenzo among them,” Dr. Elijah replied, unperturbed.
“If even Dr Grantwood doesn’t know, then it’s troublesome,” Dustin sighed.
“Although I don’t know Lorenzo, I can help you inquire around. I’m just curious, what business do you have with him?” Dr. Elijah asked, probing.
“Lorenzo is my lifesaver. I’m searching for him to repay the debt of gratitude from years ago,” Dustin’s expression grew serious.
Dr. Elijah nodded thoughtfully and continued, “While I don’t know Lorenzo, I’ll keep an eye out for information about him. As soon as I hear anything, I’ll notify you.”
“Thank you, Dr Grantwood.”
Dustin stood up and bowed. “You must be busy, so I won’t disturb you any longer. Goodbye.”
Dr. Elijah smiled and accompanied Dustin out. He watched him until he was far away before heaving a sigh of relief.
“Why is this happening? It’s been ten years. Why is someone still looking for Lorenzo? Could it be… that the secret has been leaked?”
Dr. Elijah muttered to himself, his gaze shifting toward the stairs leading to the third floor.
Lorenzo had a sensitive identity, and if exposed, it could spell disaster for Healwell!
