Moreover, it was not that difficult to refine the Terminal Lucidity Pill.
All that was needed was just some of the more common medicinal materials.
As it was not time for the auction of the purple ginseng to begin yet, Charlie took advantage of this opportunity to look for Graham before he gave him a list of a dozen medicinal herbs and materials that he needed.
Graham hurriedly gathered all of the medicinal herbs and materials for him.
After that, Charlie went to the lounge that had been rented by Graham before refining four of the Terminal Lucidity Pill on the spot.
Chinese medication was always made out of different medicinal herbs and materials. Therefore, after boiling the herbs, no matter what the medicine was for and no matter how different it was, the color of the medicine would still be dark brown.
It was also the same for pills.
The color of the Terminal Lucidity Pill was almost the same as the previous magical pill that he had concocted before this. Moreover, Charlie deliberately made the size of the Terminal Lucidity Pill the same size as the magical pill before this. That way, no one would be able to tell the difference with their naked eye.
After he was done, Charlie returned to the auction hall and gave Anthony the four pills when no one else was paying any attention to them. Charlie also took back the remaining one and a half magical pill from Anthony so that he could keep it safe for him for the time being.
Then, it was finally time for the auction of the rare three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng.
The host quickly stepped on stage before he said, “Next, we will start bidding for our final finale medicinal herb! The three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng! Before we begin the auction, we would like to invite the world-renowned Dr. Simmons to come onstage to personally appraise this superb purple ginseng on our behalf!”
Anthony had already agreed to the organizer’s request for him to appraise the superb purple ginseng on stage before attending the expo. Therefore, when the host called for him, Anthony quickly walked toward the center of the stage before taking the superb purple ginseng in his hands.
After carefully identifying and inspecting the purple ginseng, Anthony said, “Everyone, in my humble opinion, the actual lifespan of this superb purple ginseng is actually about three hundred and fifty years or even more. Therefore, I believe that this purple ginseng can truly be said to be the best amongst the best! So, you can all rest assured today!”
Everyone present at the scene exclaimed out loud as soon as they heard Anthony’s words.
They initially thought that the purple ginseng was three hundred years old. However, who would have expected it to be more than three hundred and fifty years old instead? This was simply amazing!
Charlie could not help but look at Anthony in admiration at this time. This was because Charlie did not expect Anthony to be able to tell the actual age of the top quality purple ginseng. It seemed as though Anthony truly had a very strong Chinese medical background and skills.
Just then, the host smiled before he said, “Dr. Simmons is a well-known doctor who had studied and specialized in both ancient and modern medicine. Just a few days ago, Dr. Simmons actually cured a patient with high paraplegia and created a medical miracle. Therefore, I believe that everyone can rest assured that this is indeed a superb purple ginseng based on Dr. Simmons’ honest appraisal.”
When Anthony returned to his seat, he suddenly heard someone speaking behind him. “Dr. Simmons, high-level paraplegia is a terminal illness that cannot possibly be cured by Chinese or Western medicine. How did you cure it? Why am I still in disbelief that you can really cure it? Tell me the truth, was it simply luck?”
Anthony turned around as he looked in the direction of the voice. After seeing who it was, Anthony smiled before he said, “Chelsea Fox! What are you doing here instead of staying at the National Medical Center?”
The National Medical Center? The people around them could not help but exclaim in shock when they heard Anthony’s words.
The National Medical Center was very prestigious, and any representative of the National Medical Center was of the highest level of medical skills in the whole country!
Chelsea laughed when she heard Anthony’s words and said, “I just came here today to see if you really could cure high-level paraplegia. Since it sounds so mysterious, I do not completely believe it at all!”
Anthony smiled slightly before he said, “It might really just be rumors, then! You honestly do not need to believe it at all.”
Chelsea was stunned because she did not expect Anthony to be so humble. She had expected him to be more direct. However, since he had blatantly denied curing high paraplegia, Chelsea did not know what else to say.
At this time, the host said, “We will start the bid for the three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng now. The starting price for the purple ginseng is five million dollars. Each increase in the bid should not be less than one million dollars. Everyone, you may start bidding now!”
The host smiled before he stood aside immediately.
As soon as he was done speaking, Jeffrey, who was seated in the back row, quickly raised his placard before yelling, “Ten million dollars.”
Everyone was left speechless because no one expected the price of the three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng to be doubled in the first bid itself.
