Chapter 333 Plan No.3 Failed
After hearing Qin Haodong’s words, both of them immediately became nervous. As a key member of the Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company, it was impossible for them to not know about the importance of the formula. They quickly said, “Boss… We…”
Qin Haodong, who understood what they meant, shook his head and said, “This matter has nothing to do with you guys. Go and rest for a bit. Don’t hold up your work.”
After their slight astonishment, their faces looked full of gratitude. They thought losing the formula would cost them at least their job or a fortune. Unexpectedly, Qin Haodong had gently dismissed this without blaming them.
“Everyone, go back to your places!”
Qin Haodong dismissed everyone else before he followed Lin Momo back to the president’s office.
After closing the door, Lin Momo nervously asked, “Is losing the formula really okay?”
Qin Haodong smiled and said, “The miracle of Chinese medicine is not something that those foreign devils can understand. Even though they have the formula, they still won’t be able to create the real Blood Revival Elixir.”
Lin Momo, who didn’t understand, asked, “How is that possible? They have all three formulas in their hands. We also made the elixirs according to the formulas. Why can’t they do it?”
“Because I played a little trick.” Qin Haodong smiled and said, “Originally, there was a medicine called Camphor Wood Powder that was required to make the Blood Revival Elixir. Did you see us use it when we were making it?”
“No, I didn’t!” Lin Momo shook her head. “However, without this medicine, we were still able to make the Blood Revival Elixir!”
Suddenly, her heart flickered as she excitedly said, “You’re talking about the box?”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “That’s right. That was why I emphasized the need to use camphor wood boxes to hold the Blood Revival Elixirs. The Blood Revival Elixir only becomes a real Blood Revival Elixir after it absorbs the smell of the camphor wood boxes, so the formula is useless even though they have it.”
“You are really sneaky!” Lin Momo said as she hugged Qin Haodong and gave him a strong kiss. All her worry and nervousness had been swept away.
“Haodong, what will happen to the Blood Revival Elixir if one lacks the smell of camphor wood?”
Qin Haodong sneered, “It will become poison.”
In the underground large experiment base of M Country, Garnett burst into triumphant laughter while looking at the Blood Revival Elixir formula on the screen.
He turned his head and told Davis, who was next to him, “Old man, what do you think? My Plan No. 3 was much better than your Plan No. 2. Now the formula is in our hands.”
Davis was unmoved as he took a puff of the cigar in his hand and said, “I’m afraid it’s not that simple. That Huaxia kid is much more cunning than we thought. Last time, Huang Weili also got the Blood Revival Elixir formula, but then what happened? He was fooled by that kid.”
“Don’t compare me to that idiot. This formula was taken from the Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company’s production line. How could it be fake? Old man, you are jealous of me, you know that? You’re jealous!”
Davis turned his head and told the technician next to him, “You must make the Blood Revival Elixir by following this formula.”
The technician agreed and nervously began working.
Davis was well-prepared before they began. There were various kinds of traditional Chinese medicine within the base. After the order, the technicians nervously began working. They grabbed medicine according to the formula. After working for one hour, they brought three Blood Revival Elixirs over to Davis.
“Boss, the medicine is ready!”
The leading technician spoke up respectfully.
Garnett nodded his head in satisfaction. He glanced proudly at Davis and then ordered, “Bring a test subject over.”
Not long after, the bodyguard behind him brought over a young sluggish man. It turned out that this experiment base had always used living people as test subjects.
Garnett said, “Make him take the medicine.”
Two technicians immediately rushed over, opened the young man’s mouth, and pushed three Blood Revival Elixirs inside.
“Old man, success is right in front of you. Are you jealous of me?”
Garnett then laughed triumphantly once again.
However, before he could finish laughing, the young man in front of him suddenly opened his mouth and spat out blood. Immediately, blood oozed from his eyes, nose and mouth before he plopped onto the ground, twitched a few times, and died.
Davis, who did not seem to be surprised by the scene in front of him, said sarcastically, “Garnett, is this what you want me to remember?”
“This… How is this possible? This formula was taken from the Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company’s production line. It can’t be wrong.”
Garnett was very surprised. He thought he had succeeded the moment he had gotten the formula. He hadn’t expected this to happen.
He turned his head and roared at the technicians, “Did you guys get a part of the formula wrong?”
While facing his deathly stare, the technicians hurriedly explained, “Boss, we didn’t make any mistakes. We strictly followed the formula while making the medicine.”
Garnett yelled, “Make it again! Remember, you must strictly follow the formula without making any mistakes.”
The technician nodded as he led the others in recreating the medicine. They were more cautious and serious the second time around. However, the result was the same. The test subject who took the medicine died quickly after blood oozed from their eyes, nose, and mouth.
Davis softly puffed out a smoke ring and said, “What do you think, old man? I told you that kid is not easy to deal with. Your Plan No. 3 failed.”
“Qin Haodong, I am going to kill you!”
Garnett was like a crazy beast that made his men recoil in terror.
Davis was unmoved as he lightly said, “I understand now. It is almost impossible to get the formula from Qin Haodong. What we need to do now is destroy him and the entire Chinese medicine practice. When that time arrives, there will be no threat to our development.”
During the last two days, Lin Momo had been looking at the big foreign websites. She was paying close attention to Wilson Company’s official website, yet she did not see anything regarding the safety of the elixir formula. It seemed that Qin Haodong was right. Even though they had the formula, it was useless.
Qin Haodong was sitting on the sofa while he placed a green herbal leaf in his mouth and slowly chewed. Then, he closed his eyes and carefully tasted it.
He had been experimenting very hard to find the Eight-Treasure Kidney-Nourishing Pill’s missing ingredient. After a day, he had experimented with more than 100 herbal medicines. Although he had not found the missing ingredient, he felt that he was getting closer to success.
He had a lot of prescriptions for tonifying the kidney. However, in comparison to the medicine required for the Eight-Treasure Kidney-Nourishing Pill, they were more common and easier to mass-produce. That was why he tried to make up for the missing medicine.
Suddenly, the door opened. Liu Yage walked in and said angrily, “Doctor Qin, president, the Huaxia Hall of Medical Fame provided another free clinic today. I heard that this time around three people died one after another. I don’t know what they are doing!”
As the president’s assistant, he was naturally aware of the Huaxia Hall of Medical Fame’s recent relationship with Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company. They were always getting on his nerves. He absolutely hated it!
Qin Haodong spat out the medicine residue in his mouth and said, “They can do whatever they want. In short, free clinics are a good thing for Chinese medicine practitioners.”
Lin Momo said, “Is the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association not going to provide a free clinic? Last time the Hall of Medical Fame couldn’t lift their heads after being suppressed.”
“There’s no need. Everyone is a Chinese medicine practitioner. There’s no need to make things difficult for each other. Last time, they were looking for trouble. We can’t be blamed for it.”
Qin Haodong said, “Plus, the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association’s doctors are part-timers. They all have parents and children. You can’t always drag people who want to check patients and make money for the free clinic.”
Lin Momo said, “But I see Gao Lao and the others at the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association all the time. It seems as though that place is their home. Don’t they need to go out and make money?”
Qin Haodong said, “These people are a bit different. They are the top dogs in the Chinese medicine practitioner world south of the Yangtze River. Normally, if there are no special symptoms, they are not needed. Their children and grandchildren, who are apprentices, are already supporting the medical institute.”
At the Hall of Medical Fame, Che Xiaoxiao was still smiling happily. These days, she was always with Wang Dacheng, which made her extremely happy.
At the same time, the sale quotes of the Hall of Medical Fame’s Kidney Treasure Tablet were getting better each day. According to the market feedback they received, this medicine was very effective in the treatment of kidney diseases. It had already received widespread praise in the market. Although it could not be compared to the Blood Revival Elixir, it was still a rare medicine.
This made her very happy. In addition to gaining a wide range of financial resources, it seemed that she would soon enter a marriage hall with Wang Dacheng.
The Kidney Treasure Tablet was widely popular, so the reputation of the Huaxia Hall of Medical Fame was also improving. More and more people had come to the free clinic and gotten good results.
Che Xiaoxiao sat in the office and continuously browsed the web. When she saw the overwhelming praise, she said proudly, “Dacheng, our business is getting better and better. Looks like you were right to choose the traditional Chinese medicine industry.”
Wang Dacheng carried a cup of red wine over to Che Xiaoxiao and said, “Of course. How can I be wrong when I’m this good?”
He picked up the glass and took a sip before he said, “Xiaoxiao, you don’t need to stay here anymore. Go back and cook a few tasty dishes. We need to celebrate.”
“Okay, I will go back now.” Che Xiaoxiao stood up, glanced at him and said, “You’re not coming with me?”
Wang Dacheng said, “I still need to wait for the doctors to return from the free clinic. They worked hard for a whole day, so we need to express our gratitude.”
“Okay then, I will wait for you at home. Remember to come home early!”
Che Xiaoxiao then left the office. Wang Dacheng’s smile slowly disappeared as the look on his face became complicated. First, it flashed with a trace of guilt, and then it became ruthless and resolute.
Later in the evening, the Hall of Medical Fame’s free clinic was finished. Many doctors dispersed one after another. Only Zhang Tianhe secretly went to Wang Dacheng’s office.
He turned around to close the door and then said quietly, “Young Master Wang Da, I did what you said today. I made a few changes to some of the prescriptions I provided. Tomorrow, the results will show.”
Wang Dacheng had a warm smile on his face as he said, “Not bad. Mr. Zhang, you’ve worked hard!”
“No, it wasn’t difficult! Doing things for you, Young Master Wang Da, is the right thing to do,” Zhang Tianhe said with a pleasing look on his face, “Young Master Wang Da, when will you send me the remaining five million USD?”
“I always keep my word. I will give you all the ten million USD, not a dollar less. I will transfer the money to you right now. I’ve already bought your plane ticket, so I will have my secretary bring it over in a minute. Tonight, you can go to M Country.” Wang Dacheng gave a cup of tea he had already prepared to Zhang Tianhe. “Mr. Zhang, drink some tea first.”
After he finished speaking, he took out his phone and began transferring the money.
Zhang Tianhe had a look of satisfaction on his face. Ever since Qin Haodong had embarrassed the Jiangnan Hospital, his reputation amid the upper class was no longer what it used to be. Therefore, he wanted to take this opportunity to live a peaceful life and grow old in America.
Years of savings, coupled with the ten million USD Wang Dacheng had promised him, would be enough for his family to live happily in M Country. He was very satisfied with this.
While he thought about the future, he reached out towards the teacup.
