asked with disdain.

“Young man, I have the freedom to get whomever I please to cure my daughter. And as compared to you, I’d much rather trust Dr. Shane here, with the task,” Caden sald frankly.

Had he not been at his wits‘ end, he would never have asked this rascal for help.

“It’s alright that you got someone else to cure your daughter, Mr. Murray, but the Gozoraberry that you promised me…”

Caden cut him off mid–sentence. “You didn’t do anything, why should you have the Gozoraberry? Do you think you deserve it?”

“So you’re going back on your words?” Dustin frowned.

Dustin was not a short–tempered person, but ungrateful people like Caden never failed to get on his nerves.

“Young man, cut the nonsense. Isn’t it just the money you’re after? Guards, bring him 2 million dollars!”

On Caden’s orders, his guards soon came back with two cases of cash. “Here, take this as your payment for helping SheilaFrom now on, we’re square.”

“Don’t you hear that? Take the money and leave. Now!” Xavier roared.

“Hahahaha!” Dustin suddenly broke out in laughter. But his eyes were cold and icy.

“What a good strategy you have there, Mr. Murray. How unfortunate for you though, you’re being overly optimistic. Do you really think that Malcolm Shane can cure your daughter?”

A commotion broke out the moment he said that.

“You rascal! Have you any idea what you’ve just said? This is Dr. Shane we’re talking about! There have not been conditions that he has been unable to cure thus far!”

“That’s right! What an insolent young man! If Dr. Shane can’t cure her, do you think that you can?”

“Where did this scoundrel come from? What cheek he has to doubt Dr. Shane!”

Chapter 159

The doctors gathered around to reprimand Dustin.

“Young man, may I know from whom you learned your skills? How dare you brag in front of everyone?” Malcolm gave him a once over, obviously displeased.

In all the years he practiced his medical skills, he had never once been doubted. Much less by a rascal who was still wet behind the ears!

“Hah! You overestimate yourself! How dare you put on airs in front of Dr. Shane? You’re really asking for it!” Xavier said in a hostile manner.

“Young man, I do not know where you got the confidence to doubt Dr. Shane, but I would like you to please leave now. Do not disrupt him from saving my daughter!” Caden spoke sternly with an annoyed expression. How dare this fellow tried to take advantage of his benevolence?

“There’s no need to drive him out. Let him stay and watch. Since he doubts my skills, I’ll show him what I’m capable of!” Malcolm stood with his hands behind his back.

“As expected of Dr. Shane! He carries himself with such dignity and confidence!” The doctors flattered him excessively.

As Malcolm has spoken, Caden did not go against his wishes and allowed Dustin’s presence.

“I’m so sorry to have made you come here for nothing, buddy. If Sheila ends up fine, I’ll try to talk to Caden about the Gozora berry and see if you can have it.” Lily brought Dustin to one side and apologized sincerely.

This was the man who had saved her daughter. Lily knew that she owed it to him, and would like to repay him if she could.

“I’d appreciate that, Mrs. Murray,” Dustin’s expression eased up.

There was finally someone who spoke sense in the family.

“Dr. Shane, let’s not wait any longer. Please proceed.” Caden waved him over.

Malcolm nodded and sat down beside Sheila’s bed, checking her pulse.

A short while later, he announced confidently, “If I’m not mistaken, the patient is weak and has poor circulation due to the coldness within her, and now, the toxins within her body have accumulated. Once the coldness and toxins in her body are expelled, she will be just fine.”

“And I presume you have the means to do that, Dr. Shane?” Caden asked expectantly.

“Though it’s a little tricky, it’s no big deal for me. I shall perform an acupuncture therapy to expel the coldness and toxins from her body!” Malcolm smiled lightly.

He then took out several needles and swiftly inserted them into Sheila’s skin on her nape, her navel, below her knees, on the base of her feet, and on her back

His movements were so swift and executed with such ease and skill that his audience was left in awe.

Chapter 159

By the time his needles were all in place, wisps of cold air slowly came out of Sheila’s limbs.

“And for the last one!” Malcolm produced a needle that was thicker and longer than the rest and inserted it straight on top of Sheila’s head.

Soon, a great deal of mist emerged from all over Sheila’s skin.

For a brief moment, everyone in the room was surrounded by an eerie chill.

“Alright, the coldness is now expelled. It won’t be long now before the patient comes around,” Malcolm

declared confidently.

“No wonder you’re a world–renowned miracle healer. Your acupuncture therapy is just plain magical!” Caden exclaimed excitedly. His gloom and anxiety from earlier on were swept away in an instant.

“That’s right! With Dr. Shane around, any disease or condition can be easily handled!” Xavier was all smiles.

“Hey, you! Do you admit defeat?” Claudia raised her chin at Dustin in a provoking manner.

“How dare he doubt Dr. Shane? He doesn’t know where he stands!” Claudia thought to herself.

Dustin shook his head as he looked at her with contempt.

“Sheila suffered from Polarfrost! That was a rare condition that only came around approximately once in a century! How could it possibly be so easily cured?” He thought to himself.

While everyone was overjoyed, Lily noticed something amiss. “Hey, hasn’t the coldness been expelled? But why does Sheila look even paler than before?”
