When Mr. Wangley laid his eyes on the small, white–colored vial, his expression immediately turned into shock, but a look of greed replaced it soon after.
That was legendary Dr. Rowan Cross‘ Miracle Cure!
Why does a punk like him have such a treasure on him in the first place?
Anyone could see that this antidote was incredibly precious and worth a lot of money!
Even the tiniest amount of powder could already fetch sky–high prices.
It was no wonder that the punk could act so cocky, and that was all because he was in possession of Hexanavir.
Today shall be the day of his downfall!
“Hmph!” Quentin snorted and said nothing before downing the whole cup of tea in one gulp.
Almost immediately after he gulped down the tea, the ongoing sharp pains in his stomach gradually started to disappear.
The pain completely disappeared a few minutes later.
This caused Quentin to feel like he’d just survived a huge ordeal.
“I won’t forget the shame you inflicted on me today, Rhys! You had better not fall into my clutches anymore in the future!” Quentin barked before turning to Natasha Harmon. “And as for you, Natasha, you’d better solve the crisis surrounding Eternumax soon. Else, don’t blame me if I report you to the board!”
The moment he finished barking, Quentin left the room in a haggard state.
“You’ll definitely regret everything you did today, young man!” Mr. Wangley grunted before turning to chase after Quentin.
Did he know who Quentin was? How could a puny doctor like him humiliate him like that?
If ever he decided to seek revenge eventually, he bet that his bones wouldn’t be spared even after he was
“So you came prepared, Dustin. You really scared me just now.” Ruth heaved a sigh of relief.
“It was all thanks to the Hexanavir your sister sent me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have won so easily,” Dustin let
out a small chuckle.
But of course, the antidote merely made things slightly easier for him.
“Hmph! It was all a trick then!” Jessica snorted and looked at Dustin in disdain.
She initially thought that he’d used his skills for this, but who knew that he had just utilized Hexanavir which was made by the legendary Dr. Rowan Cross.
“You can stay unconvinced as long as you like, but the fact remains that Dustin won” Natasha argued with a
“So what if he won by a fluke? What makes you think this kid can research Eternumax without Mr. Wangley here?” Jessica questioned.
Eternumax was the heart and soul of Harmon Pharmaceuticals for many years now and was an equally important part of the family’s development plans.
This was why she refused to believe that such an unknown figure like Dustin would have any ability to save
“Who says? To me, Dustin is way more knowledgeable than whoever this Wangley guy is.” Natasha stood her
“Fine, since you keep insisting that he’s the superior choice, then why don’t we make a bet? If he can develop
Eternumax from scratch, I’ll take it as he’s passed the test. Otherwise, I’ll have him resign from his post immediately to make way for the others!” Jessica roared, clearly enraged.
“I have no qualms with that,” Natasha said, refusing to give way.
Whether he would be able to do it or not was a separate matter. She couldn’t back down now.
“Rhys, you punk! You’d better not let my daughter down!” Jessica spat after getting a clearer look at Dustin. She then folded up her sleeves and up and left.
“What did mom mean by ‘test‘ just now?” Ruth asked, out of curiosity.
“Kids shouldn’t butt into adult matters.” Natasha rolled her eyes at her in response.
“Hmph! Well, I’m sorry for asking. Who died and made you queen?” Ruth pouted.
“You all keep mentioning Eternumax, but what is it exactly. Ms. Harmon?” Dustin asked while feigning ignorance.
Natasha Harmon forced a smile and started explaining. “Although the Harmons have a firm grip over many industries, the main focus is still medicine. This was why the decision behind the selection of business
partners and benefit–sharing were all made in hopes of dominating the pharmaceutical market of the entirety of Swinton. Thus, that was how we began researching and developing a new kind of drug, which we plan to use to capture all of that market share,
“Everything was going to plan in the beginning, but no one had expected that there would be a traitor who had
been planted among us. Thus, Tilda Snider’s assassination presented an opportunity to us, while serving as a warning to all traitors. But the moment they realized that they were about to be exposed, they employed methods of coercion and enticing benefits to lure our employees to other companies instead, which was how they took away a big chunk of our workforce. Not only that, they even stole our research findings! And the research findings in question were for the new drug we’re developing, Eternumax!”
