“Eleanor, don’t think too highly of yourself. I couldn’t care less about your so-called opportunity,” Dustin responded coldly.
From the moment Eleanor took advantage of him, and when Alistair and Joanne repaid his kindness with hostility, the relationship between the two sides had become irreconcilable.
“Fine, since you’re so stubborn, don’t blame me for moving on from our past friendship!” Elearnor’s expression darkened.
“The same goes for you. If both your families continue harboring ill intentions, you’ll bear the consequences!” Dustin retorted.
“How stupid!” With a disdainful snort, Eleanor turned around and walked away. She was about to get into her car when a thought struck her.
She turned back to ieer. “Oh, I forgot to mention. The Welch family and the Swanson family will be collaborating on the development and production of Dew Balm.
“It won’t be long before Dew Balm gains fame in Oakvale and the rest of the world, bringing us a continuous stream of wealth!
“Of course, this is all thanks to you. If you hadn’t provided us with the formula, we wouldn’t have had such a golden opportunity!
“How does it feel? Are you surprised? You should thank us for promoting Dew Balm on your behalf!” Eleanor looked smile. smug as she wore a cheerful
Harmony Healers was nothing compared to the value of Dew Balm. Taking the Dew Balm formula from Dustin was the best decision the Welch family could have ever made.
“Bastards!” Brooke gritted his teeth as anger welled up in him. He knew how valuable Dew Balm was since he had witnessed its miraculous effects..
Dustin could have achieved substantial wealth through Dew Balm. Instead, the Welchs had betrayed him and claimed the formula for themselves.
They were absolutely despicable!
“Eleanor Welch, do you really think you’ve won?” Dustin suddenly questioned.
“Haven’t we?” Eleanor retorted with a smile. “Don’t celebrate just yet. Even though you have the formula, mine is still the original,” Dustin said impassively.
“So what? Even if you have the formula, what can you do? Do you really think you’ll be able to sell it? Don’t be naive!” Eleanor snorted disdainfully.
“South City is our territory. Challenging us would be a foolish move. If you have any sense left, you’ll apologize to us. You might still have a way out, then.”
In this world, the act of copying and undermining original ideas was far from uncommon. What could a mere doctor do against two powerful and wealthy families?
“Since you’re so confident, let’s wait and see what happens.” Dustin remained unbothered.
“Hmph! I’m going to make you regret this!” Eleanor glared at him before leaving. A beggar dared go against her? He clearly didn’t know his place!
“Since you enjoy playing with fire, don’t blame me for responding in the same way.” Dustin narrowed his eyes, his gaze growing colder.
In fact, when he had made the agreement with the Welchs concerning the formula, he had kept a backup plan in case things went south.
He had intended to provide them with the complete formula after securing the other two precious herbs. He didn’t expect them to go back on their word and repay kindness with enmity instead.
He was going to make them pay a heavy price for their betrayal!
