Chapter 1303 – Make a Deal
“You rascal! You’ve gone too far! You’re bullying me!”
Roselyn was furious and felt wronged, tears streaming down her face.
She was known for her stunning beauty, exceptional talent, and had been pampered her entire life. Wherever she went and whatever she encountered, people always treated her with deference.
But this guy, Dustin, had no manners at all. He not only showed her no respect but also insulted her publicly, causing her great embarrassment.
It was utterly despicable!
“Alright, alright, Sister, you should calm down a bit,”
Seeing that things were getting out of hand, Carlos began to mediate, “We’re all fellow disciples here, and we’ll see each other often in the future. There’s no need to damage our relationship.”
“Hmph! Who says we’re fellow disciples? Healwell Clinic has both him and me. It has me, but it doesn’t have him!” Roselyn firmly asserted.
“That’s enough!” Dr. Elijah couldn’t hold back any longer and spoke in a stern voice, “Roselyn, you’re being too stubborn. The prescription for the Jade Dew Ointment belongs to Dustin. How he chooses to handle it is his business. You have no right to meddle.”
“Grandfather? I’m your granddaughter, how can you take his side?” Roselyn found it hard to believe.
Her grandfather usually attention on her, so why was he siding with an outsider today?
“Dustin saved Healwell Clinic twice. If you can’t be grateful and instead cause trouble like this, it’s really unreasonable!” Dr. Elijah scolded with a straight face. “If you dare to be disrespectful again, don’t blame me for confining you to your room and not letting you leave for a month!”
“I…” Roselyn opened her mouth but ultimately held back.
She knew that her grandfather’s word was ironclad, and whatever he said, he would do.
Although she felt wronged, causing more trouble wouldn’t lead to a good outcome.
In the end, she could only direct all her anger and resentment toward Dustin through her eyes.
Sooner or later, she would make him pay!
“Mr. Rhys, this girl has been quite rude. Allow me to apologize on her behalf,” Dr. Elijah Grantwood said apologetically, clasping his hands.
“It’s fine. I was just joking earlier,” Dustin replied with a faint smile, not wanting to make a big deal out of it.
Despite Roselyn’s stubbornness, Dr. Elijah was still reasonable.
Considering that uncle Lorenzo would have to stay in Healwell Clinic for a while, Dustin didn’t want to create unnecessary conflicts.
“Mr. Rhys, can we discuss the matter of the prescription?” Carlos said impatiently. “I sincerely want to cooperate with you. As long as you’re willing to provide the prescription, we can research it together, make money together, and benefit the people together. Why not give it a try? Of course, if you feel my sincerity is lacking, feel free to name your price. Whatever you need, I’ll try my best to fulfill.”
Upon hearing this, Dustin was about to refuse, but then he seemed to think of something. Suddenly, he changed his tone and said, “Since Mr. Carlos is so sincere, let me be straightforward. If you can obtain three rare medicinal herbs for me—Ice Heart Lotus, Dragon Blood Ginseng, and Golden Marrow Jade—I will give you the prescription for the Jade Dew Ointment.”
Carlos’s eyes lit up, and he became excited. “Mr. Rhys, don’t even mention three medicinal herbs. Even if it’s thirty or three hundred, it’s completely fine. Tell me, what do you need?”
“I need Ice Heart Lotus, Dragon Blood Ginseng, and Golden Marrow Jade,” Dustin listed the names of the medicinal herbs one by one.
These were the primary ingredients for refining the Bone Cleansing Pill and were crucial for treating Uncle Lorenzo.
If he could exchange a partial prescription for three top-quality medicinal herbs, it would be a great deal.
“Ice Heart Lotus? Dragon Blood Ginseng? Golden Marrow Jade?”
Upon hearing this, Carlos immediately furrowed his brow. “If I’m not mistaken, these three medicinal herbs are extremely rare treasures, right? They can’t be found on the market at all. I wonder, Mr. Rhys, what do you need these items for?”
“I have my reasons. It depends on whether Mr. Carlos agrees or not,” Dustin replied calmly.
“These three medicinal herbs are extremely rare, and they are worth a fortune. They’re hard to come by. Give me some time, and I should be able to gather them,” Carlos said thoughtfully.
“Alright, I’ll wait for your good news. As long as you manage to collect the three medicinal herbs, I’ll immediately hand over the Jade Dew Ointment formula,” Dustin said with a faint smile.
