Chapter 514: Finding Hawking to Test (Part One)
(TL Note: just remember, it’s a fiction, the author’s fantasy and sometimes he does get patriotic and use stereotypes, so let’s just enjoy the story for the story)
The host was wearing a mini-mic and announced loudly, “Welcome to Santander Auction House! I won’t take too much time introducing the item we are auctioning today, because the Mandala Lab had already introduced it online. In simple words, this is the result of five years of research and development by the Mandala Lab, and it is said to be a medicine that can cure cancer and various other diseases. Not only is it able to remove various pathologies, it can also help people retain their youth, allowing the user to prolong their life. Of course, this technology has not been widely tested or adopted, but there has been one patient that benefited from it. Let’s invite him up onto the stage!”
Then, Jerry the inspiration icon appeared on stage. Compared to the pale and weak look he had when he was still being tormented by cancer, right now, he looked to be in great shape.
He coughed and picked up the mic and said, “Hello, I believe everyone has a pretty good idea of who I am. I have with me my cancer diagnosis as well as my physical report after my recovery. I just want to say, I’m eternally grateful for the people that saved me when I was on the verge of giving up. They are the Mandala Lab! I don’t know how else to repay them, so I’m standing here today, sincerely wanting to testify for the wonderful work they are doing!”
At this time, a guest that came over to participate in this auction said, “Senator Jerry, just like you said, since it saved you when you were on the verge of despair, then the value of this medicine is definitely high up there, because there’s nothing more valuable in this world than people’s lives. However, have you considered its authenticity? If it is fake, I will also ask this question to the Santander Auction House, are you willing to take the loss for the bidder?”
“Uh…” The head of the Santander Auction House began hesitating.
If this was a scam, he would also face lawsuits and even jail time! The most important thing was, what if these lab guys run away after this? The bidder would only come to the auction to seek compensation for damages!
“We are not questioning the price or whatnot, we just doubt the effectiveness of this medicine. I feel like Jerry, your recovery had a lot to do with your positive mentality or maybe the hospital you were originally getting treatment from.”
A doctor at the scene said, “But cancer is, after all, cancer. It’s impossible to kill all cancer cells and fully recover when it has already gotten to the terminal stage. There has been no precedent. After Senator Jerry got treated, there are no cancer cells left in his body, isn’t this a bit questionable?”
“Wait for me for a second” Xu Cheng said to Lin Chuxue.
Lin Chuxue nodded.
Xu Cheng directly got into the backstage and Lin Dong was there watching the live broadcast. Seeing his teacher coming here, he immediately went up to him. Xu Cheng immediately began scolding him, “You didn’t communicate well with the auction house? Now we are getting so many questions and the host doesn’t know how to respond. How is the auction supposed to proceed?”
Lin Dong bitterly smiled. “Teacher, besides you, who else knows or can assess the medicine? You didn’t show this to any regulatory agencies nor register any patents… I really have nothing to show them to convince then, and they only dared to host our product because of Senator Jerry’s example.”
Xu Cheng thought about it. “It’s our first time auctioning it, it’s indeed a bit unbelievable. After all, this is medicine to save lives, not an art piece. Looks like there’s only one way.”
“What is it?” Lin Dong immediately asked.
“There are only two doses, then we will satisfy the audience and use up the first dose live on the broadcast!” Xu Cheng said.
“Is that really appropriate? Teacher, this is all money… We can just keep it if they don’t want to believe us,” Lin Dong said.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“No, once we clear up the doubts in those people’s minds, the last remaining syringe would actually cause them to fight for it even harder! Just listen to me, tell the people of the auction house that we will allow one syringe to be used on the spot. Also, let them send a treatment-offer to all the terminal cancer patients in New York. We will demonstrate it to them live!” Xu Cheng said domineeringly. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
