Chapter 1300 The Unruly Behavior
“Sebastian, I hate being threatened. I advise you not to provoke me, or your Stratford family will be in trouble,” Dustin said calmly.
“Kid, you’re really arrogant!” Sebastian snorted. “Fine! Since you don’t know your place, let’s see how it plays out!”
With that, he turned and left.
The Stratford family cherished their reputation and wouldn’t openly resort to force. However, they could employ other methods to obtain the prescription later.
“Kid! You’ve made an enemy of Sebastian, and you’re in big trouble!” Lenny chuckled, then shouted to his gang and left.
Although they had failed today, it wasn’t entirely fruitless. The prescription Dustin held had clearly become the new darling of the Stratford family, and once they got their hands on it, they would be rewarded handsomely.
“Mr. Rhys, thanks to your help today, otherwise Healwell would have been in trouble,” Elijah said gratefully.
“Mr. Rhys, you’re too modest; it was just a small effort,” Dustin replied with a faint smile.
“Dr. Rhys, you’re young and talented. I admire you,” Elijah said, clasping his hands.
“Hmph! What’s so great about it? It’s just luck,” Roselyn said, her arms crossed, a disdainful look on her face. “If it weren’t for this ancestral prescription, we would have been in danger because of him.”
“Roselyn! Don’t be disrespectful!” Elijah frowned and scolded. “Dr. Rhys helped us twice. What’s with your attitude? You really have no manners!”
“Hmph! Did I say anything wrong? It’s clear that he was showing off, and he almost got us into trouble!” Roselyn raised her head and looked defiant.
“Little sister, you’re also in the wrong here. Mr. Rhys helped our Healwell after all. Speaking so rudely is improper,” Carlos said with a stern expression.
Roselyn pursed her lips and looked somewhat aggrieved but remained silent.
“Mr. Rhys, my apologies for my little girl’s behavior. She’s been pampered since childhood, which has made her a bit unruly,” Elijah said, both angry and helpless.
He only had one granddaughter, and she had been spoiled since childhood, which had made her a bit lawless.
“Mr. Rhys, I appreciate your help today. However, I have to ask, what are your plans regarding Jade Dew Ointment?” Carlos asked directly.
“Why, do you want to buy the prescription too?” Dustin asked in return.
Carlos’ attitude had clearly aligned with Sebastian’s goals.
“If Mr. Rhys can sell it, that would be best. If not, we can cooperate in the long run,” Carlos said with a smile. “I saw the miraculous effects of Jade Dew Ointment just now. I can confidently say that once this ointment is promoted, it will definitely become a bestseller!”
When it came to Jade Dew Ointment, its efficacy could only be described as miraculous. If it could be mass-produced, it would be a guaranteed success.
“Carlos, even if I wanted to sell it, I couldn’t. Jade Dew Ointment, despite its effectiveness, has significant side effects,” Dustin calmly explained. “Just now, in order to quickly treat the injury, I used a powerful formula. Although Lenny seemed fine, he will experience symptoms like abdominal pain and diarrhea when he returns. In severe cases, he could even go into shock. Therefore, this medicine cannot be sold. Once it spreads, it will undoubtedly harm both people and myself.”
