Chapter 1301 : Bargaining for Jade Dew Ointment Prescription
“Cannot be sold?!” Upon hearing this, Carlos couldn’t help but furrowing his brows.
He had thought it was some kind of miraculous elixir, but he didn’t expect such severe side effects.
While feeling disappointed, he couldn’t help but be somewhat skeptical.
“Mr. Rhys, you’re not joking with me, right? I just saw Lenny, and it seems like he didn’t have any adverse reactions,” Carlos Grantwood cautiously inquired.
“Right now, it may not be apparent, but in half an hour, it will naturally become evident,” Dustin replied without changing his expression.
“Mr. Rhys, is there any way to reduce the side effects? Even if the medicinal effect is slightly weaker, it’s okay.” Carlos suggested, seeking a compromise.
Using medication that was too potent would lead to noticeable side effects.
But if milder herbs were used, there should be no issues.
“Not for now,” Dustin shook his head.
Neither Sebatian Stratford nor Carlos Grantwood were trustworthy individuals.
He wouldn’t easily share a drug that could disrupt the market balance.
Of course, the main reason was his dislike of both of them.
“That’s fine too. Provide me with the prescription, and I’ll try to improve it. If it succeeds, I’ll give you a fifty percent share. How about that?” Carlos had another idea.
As one of Dr. Elijahs’s top disciples, he had a high level of expertise in medicine.
Improving the prescription should be feasible.
“Mr. Carlos, this is a fragmentary prescription. There’s no way to improve it. You should give up,” Dustin refused once again.
“What harm is there in trying?” Dustin countered.
“Many people have tried before, without exception, all failed. No matter how much research they did, it was all in vain,” Dustin shook his head.
“Hey! You are being too stingy! Just because I asked you for the prescription, you’re making all kinds of excuses. It’s truly despicable!”
At this point, Roselyn Grantwood couldn’t hold back any longer and angrily said, “Moreover, just because others couldn’t improve it doesn’t mean my eldest senior brother can’t. My eldest senior brother Carlos is a genius in the field of medicine, much better than you. He’s offering you a chance to get rich now, and you don’t know how to appreciate it!”
“Roselyn! Watch your tone!” Carlos deliberately maintained a serious face.
“Elder Senior Brother, you are too polite to him. Such a person should not be indulged, or he will only act arrogantly!” Roselyn said, hands on her hips.
“Dustin Rhys just has some reservations, which is understandable, after all, we’ve only just met,” Carlos said diplomatically.
Carlos put on a seemingly understanding demeanor and changed his approach, saying, “But Mr. Rhys, now that you’ve joined Healwell Clinic, we are now fellow apprentices. With this bond between us, what reason do you have not to trust me?”
“You’re absolutely right! Our eldest senior brother is benevolent and has excellent character. If you entrust the prescription to him, there won’t be any problems!”
“Yes! Eldest senior brother comes from a prestigious family and is proficient in pharmacology. He will surely be able to improve the prescription, and we can all get rich together!”
“Mr. Dustin Rhys, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Since you won’t use the prescription yourself, giving it to our eldest senior brother would be the most efficient use of it!”
At this moment, the medical apprentices of Healwell Clinic began persuading Dustin.
Carlos was known for his generosity, and if he could improve the prescription, they would all benefit greatly, so they were eager to support his cause.
“I made it very clear before that this prescription is an ancestral one and will not be sold,” Dustin said calmly.
“Mr. Rhys, please don’t misunderstand. I’m not asking to buy it; I’m just asking to borrow it. Rare prescriptions like this shouldn’t be buried; they should be promoted and benefit the people. It’s our duty as healers!” Carlos argued with conviction.
“Well said! Indeed, our eldest senior brother has a heart of compassion!” Roselyn admired him wholeheartedly.
Men with such kindness and righteousness were truly rare.
