Chapter 506 Modern Medicine And Alternative Medicine Competition!
Worry crept into Simons voice again. Nora, now that he has gotten involved, youre going to be in a pickle.
Like what had happened previously, if the matter had just been about something she had supposedly said, Simon could still suppress the matter and explain to everyone that she hadnt said anything like that.
However, Blaine had popped up out of nowhere and issued a challenge to the alternative medicine circle. On top of that, he had done that in her name and even claimed that he was fronting the campaign for her.
Winning or losing was no longer importantbecause Blaines actions had successfully caused a confrontation between alternative and modern medicine practitioners!
Should Nora show up with Blaine, it would cement what she had supposedly said previously. Even if she won the competition, she would lose the support of the alternative medicine community and would struggle in the States in the future.
Yet, if she stepped forward and apologized to the alternative medicine community, people would say that she had chickened out. Angering the modern medicine community would also make her life a struggle in the country. This wasnt to say that she wouldnt be able to use her identity as Anti to make money anymore, though. However, she would no longer be respected by people in the medical profession both domestically and internationally like how she currently was!
Moreover, as the Smiths young lady and the future matriarch of the Hunts, she would also end up making the Smiths and the Hunts look somewhat flighty and frivolous.
In short, there were a lot of disadvantages!
Nora figured out all this in an instant. She curled her lips into a smile. When Simon was about to nag at her some more, she suddenly said, Dont worry, Uncle Simon, I know what Im doing.
Simons anxious words immediately became stuck in his throat.
After so much had happened, Simon now wholeheartedly trusted and believed in his niece. It was as if he was sure that she could resolve the problems just because she had said that she knew what she was doing.
Thus, he paused for a few seconds before he finally said, Alright, its great that you have a solution.
Nora made a sound of acknowledgment. When she wanted to hang up, Simon said, By the way, when will you be free to come home for a visit? Your aunt and both your cousins miss you!
As soon as he said, Nora heard Logans voice faintly in the background. Who misses her?! Dad, dont talk nonsense!
Next to him, Melissa asked softly, When did Nora say she will be back? I will make her an entire table of delicious food! Nora then asked, Where is Sheril?
Simon replied, Shes at the lab. Ever since you borrowed the lab to make the Zabe Corporations Calming Pills, and she won a bet with some of the old stick-in-the-muds there, they have completely conceded defeat to her. Everyone at the lab listens to her now and has been trying out many new ways of making medicine. Shes so busy that she doesnt even come home anymore.
It was indeed a good thing to be able to find what one liked and stick to it.
Although Sheril lead a simple life, it was a fulfilling and happy one. Nora thought of Sherils optimism and cheerfulness when she was living with the Andersons, as well as the conflicting contrast between her cute and docile appearance and her love of vodka. She smiled and said, Well, as long as she is happy.
As soon as she said that, Melissa snatched the phone from Simon and said, Nora, get in touch with her when you have time, and get her to participate in other activities. The key thing here is that its time that she starts dating!
Nora was dumbfounded. She didnt expect that a woman as elegant as her aunt would actually force her daughter to date.
She coughed. Okay.
After hanging up, she picked up the phone again. After a moments thought, she called Blaine.
The two of them had both been part of a patients consultation years ago, so they had exchanged contact information with each other.
Blaine picked up the call very quickly. Anti, are you here to thank me? Ive long been unhappy with the alternative medicine circle. They are no different from a bunch of frauds! Imbalance of energies in ones body? What nonsense! We modern doctors are not gonna recognize such talk! Its just a pity that your words the last time didnt have enough of an impact, so I have given you a hand. With that, the two of us will be able to cause a huge stir in Americas alternative medicine circle and turn it upside down!
After hearing what he said, she cast her eyes down. Who says that alternative medicine is inferior to modern medicine?
Blaine paused for a moment before he asked, What? Do you actually think alternative medicine is better than modern medicine?
Nora lowered her gaze. You dont have to deliberately misinterpret my words. Neither did I say anything like that. I just find your act of provoking the alternative medicine circle very stupid.
Blaine snorted. What do you mean by that? I did all of this for you! Never mind that youre not thanking me for it, but youre actually saying that I get it now. Surely youre not chickening out now that youre back in the States, are you?
To think the top surgeon of modern medicine is afraid of the alternative medicine practitioners in America! Arent you afraid that youll offend the modern medicine circle if you say that?! Alternative medicine is just a niche, whereas modern medicine has become mainstream. I urge you to think carefully about this! Also, Ive contacted a few modern medicine doctors and made an appointment with people of the alternative medicine circle for a competition two days later. If you dont show up, Im afraid the modern medicine doctors who put you on a pedestal will be very disappointed in you! I will send you the address. You are free to decide whether you want to show up or not!
After saying that, he hung up. Then, he sent her the address.
She had obviously been the one who called to question him. Where did Blaine get the confidence to talk to her like that?
Noras expression had darkened.
She let out a cold laugh. Then, her phone rang. When she picked up the call, she found that it was Sheril. Sheril asked tentatively, Nora, did you issue a challenge to the alternative medicine circle?
Nora was angry at the moment, so she immediately answered, It wasnt me. Some idiot did that.
Sherils cautiousness immediately disappeared and she became furious. I knew it couldnt have been you! Given how strong your skills at making medicine are, why would you ever look down on alternative medicine? This must be a conspiracy that Blaine or whatever his name is came up with! He must be sick in the head. Otherwise, why would he do that? Dont worry, Nora, the few of us have already discussed this, and weve decided that I will participate in the competition! I will beat Blaine and then declare in front of everyone that you were the one who made the Zabe Corporations Calming Pills and that not only are you a master of modern medicine, but also a master of the pharmaceutical industry!
Touched, she said, Okay. Im rooting for you.
Sheril also felt rather embarrassed after saying that, so she immediately asked with a smile, By the way, will you be there on that day? Would she be there?
Noras lip corners curled up into a smile. Of course.
Of course, she had to be there. Otherwise, how was she going to slap Blaine in the face?!
Besides, alternative medicines effects in treating illnesses had always been slow. Without her, going by the skills of those few people in the alternative medicine circle, she felt that they might lose to Blaine!
Sheril breathed a sigh of relief. Okay. Dont worry, Nora, I will definitely settle this for you! Even if I lose the competition, at the very least, I mustnt let the people in the alternative medicine circle hate you I am confident that I can at least achieve that!
