When Charlie saw Anthony saluting and bowing before him, Charlie waved his hand before he said, “Mr. Simmons, you don’t need to be so polite with me. You don’t need to call me Mr. Wade either, you can just call me Charlie.”
“How could I possibly do that?” Anthony hurriedly bowed before he said, “Mr. Wade, you are my master, so how could I possibly address you by your first name?”
When Charlie saw how stubborn and persistent the old man was, he did not continue to persuade him. Instead, he simply said, “I heard that Jason Grant and Kenneth Wilson came to see you yesterday?”
Anthony was very surprised at this time. “Mr. Wade, how did you find out about this?”
Xyla stuck out her tongue before she said, “Grandpa, I was the one who told Mr. Wade about this…”
Anthony started to reprimand Xyla immediately. “Young girl! Mr. Wade is so busy with his own daily affairs, so how could you bother him with something as trivial as this?”
Xyla felt very aggrieved at this time.
The reason why she had called Charlie was not because she wanted to ask for credit on behalf of her grandfather. Instead, it was simply because she wanted to look for an opportunity to talk to Charlie.
After all, she had always regarded Charlie as her idol and she admired him even more than she admired her own grandfather. Therefore, she really wanted to look for an opportunity to talk to him even if it was just a mere phone call.
However, she could not possibly make a phone call to Charlie if there was nothing for them to talk about, could she?
Therefore, she decided to report the events that had happened yesterday to Charlie.
However, she did not expect her grandfather to scold her instead!
In fact, the reason why Anthony yelled at Xyla was simply because he was worried that Charlie would misunderstand him. He was afraid that Charlie would think that he was the one who had asked Xyla to call him so that he could get more credit for himself. He did not want Charlie to misunderstand him and think of him as someone who wanted to take credit for everything.
When Charlie saw the aggrieved and miserable expression on Xyla’s face, he smiled before he said, “Mr. Simmons, this is just a small matter. Please don’t scold Xyla because of this.”
At this time, Anthony hurriedly replied, “Mr. Wade, I’m sorry for embarrassing myself in front of you.”
Charlie waved his hand before he said, “Mr. Simmons, when you found out that Jason and Kenneth had offended me in the past, you refused to treat them. This means you’re loyal to me and showing me respect. I’ll remember what you have done.”
Anthony quickly replied, “Mr. Wade, you’ve done so much for me and you showed me so much kindness when you saved my life. I can only do so much to ease your worries and troubles. You don’t have to be so polite to me.”
After that, Anthony pointed at the Serene World Clinic signboard before he said in a serious manner, “I made this decision to stay in Aurous Hill and open a medical clinic because I want to be able to help you and carry out your instructions whenever you need my services. This is the only way I’ll be able to repay your kindness!”
Charlie smiled before he said, “You really are a very loyal man.”
After that, Charlie took out the magical pill from his pocket before he handed it to Anthony. “Mr. Simmons, this is the same magical pill that I’ve given you previously. Even though I’ve not specifically demonstrated it, based on ancient records, a dying man would be able to prolong his life for another five to ten years after taking this pill. Therefore, I’ve decided to give you this pill today. You should keep it with you because it might be useful to you in the future.”
Anthony looked at the pill and he trembled as he fell to his knees. After that, he said in a trembling voice, “Mr. Wade, you can’t do this. You’ve already given me one of these pills prior to this and I’ve not been able to repay your kindness. How could I possibly receive such a big gift from you?”
When Xyla saw that her grandfather had already gotten down on his knees, she knelt down beside him as she rested her slender hands on her knees and looked at Charlie with her bright and watery eyes.
Charlie had given this magical pill to a few people. Even though every one of them knew that this magical pill was extremely precious, the person who understood the value of this medicine the most was none other than Anthony.
First of all, Anthony had been practicing medicine for his whole life. Since he was so proficient and knowledgeable in medicine, he knew how powerful this magical pill was and he knew that he could not possibly find a second one in this world.
Secondly, Anthony was already growing older and the older he got, the better he understood his own fate. Even though he was a genius doctor who was very famous, after living for more than eighty years, it was very possible for him to quietly pass away in his sleep one day.
This magical pill had the ability to prolong the life of a dying man! This meant that Anthony would be able to extend his life for several years because of this magical pill that Charlie was giving to him!
Of course, Anthony would love to have this magical pill. However, he did not dare ask for it!
