Colin wore his heart on his sleeve. One look at him, and Josef knew what he was thinking about.
‘What a pity. His envy is going to be a big hurdle. This is as far as he goes in the field of medicine. If he’s not telling me more, then I have to ask the patient…’
“Miss Bane, may I check your pulse?”
Roxanne frowned. She had no idea who Josef was, and a stranger making that request was inappropriate.
It wasn’t the first time a man tried to hold her hand with the pretext of checking her condition.
‘Ah, that was rude…’
Josef said, “Sorry. I’m Josef Larson, representative of the South in the Holy Doctor Competition. Your condition seems off, and I would like to check it…”
‘Oh, um. This is awkward. He’s a contestant. Every contestant is a professional. I can’t believe I thought he was a pervert.
Roxanne blushed. “I’m very sorry, Dr. Larson… Please, thank you…” She extended her hand.
“It’s alright,” Josef didn’t mind.
It was normal for ladies to be on guard.
Josef got a tissue and placed it on her wrist to prevent direct skin contact, then he checked her pulse.
It was a small detail, but one that was enough to gain Roxanne’s affection.
Josef noticed that Roxanne’s pulse was steady. She was in great health, but then that couldn’t explain the weird phenomenon with her vessels. “Miss Bane, please hold your breath for ten seconds.”
Roxanne cleared her mind and quickly held her breath, but five seconds later, her face paled and her head started to spin again.
Josef quickly said, “You can exhale, Miss Bane.”
And Roxanne started gulping for air.
Josef had a guess of what her condition was, but he needed confirmation.
“I’ll need you to agree to an acupuncture session for confirmation of your condition.” Jordan needed the patient’s consent to do this.
Just when he was about to ask Lola to help him out, Colin stopped him. “Mr. Larson, Miss Bane is the pride and joy of the Banes. If anything were to happen to her, the consequences would crush me.”
Josef didn’t answer that.
Instead, he said, “I’m sure her condition isn’t anything related to her vessels, and that Circulation Pill you gave her only worsened her health. Furthermore, her symptoms aren’t caused by overexertion.”
“What?” Colin was red with anger.
‘Jordan just negated my entire diagnosis!’
If Josef weren’t a representative, he would have kicked Josef out of the center.
Eleanor looked at Colin and quickly added, “Renew’s doctors have diagnosed her, and the meds worked. If you step in and hurt Roxanne, we will come after you.”
When Josef said nothing, Eleanor added, “You claim to be a representative, so where’s your license? Show me.”
Josef and Lola frowned.
Famous doctors like them didn’t need a license. Everyone trusted their reputation. They were a cut above the rest, and people like them had no need for a license.
