“He said nothing wrong. There is aconite in the medicine.” Linden’s words shocked everyone.

“What?” That invigilator froze in disbelief. “Dr. Watkins, you must be mistaken. I remember that aconite wasn’t listed in the recipe.

The elders beside Linden did not say anything but had puzzled expressions. The medicines were brewed according to a recipe, and no one would dare to change it. How is it possible that it contained aconite?

“Originally, Aconite was not included. But I just felt like adding it, so I did,” Linden said casually,

“You felt like it?” When the crowd heard that statement, they exchanged looks with each other. Wasn’t Linden too carefree?

“Dr. Watkins, when aconite is combined with the Fritillaria bulb, it becomes poisonous. Why would you add it?” The invigilator frowned.

He had said the same thing just now to criticize Dustin. Now, Linden had confirmed that there was really aconite in the medicine.

“It’s to test everyone, of course,” Linden said casually. “If we strictly follow the recipe, it would be too simple and boring. They would easily be able to guess the ingredients.

“However, adding aconite would make things more interesting Everyone must think outside the box to notice the little surprise I prepared for you.

“Unfortunately, none of you noticed it. Except for this man, who was sensitive enough to spot it. So technically speaking, he is the only one with a perfect score!”

The crowd became uneasy when they heard that. It seemed this was all planned by Linden. Most importantly, Dustin was the only person who successfully noticed the special ingredient added to the medicine!

Before Linden revealed the truth, the crowd thought that Dustin was just an attention seeker, SO they mocked him as much as they wanted. None of them expected that they were the real fool.

“How’s that possible? I didn’t even notice that there was aconite. How did that bastard know?” Preston’s brows furrowed as he frowned. He was usually proud and arrogant because of his talents. He could not accept losing to someone else.

“Does this scoundrel have some insider information?” Miranda had a doubtful look on her face. Even though she was talented, it took her a few years to be on the same level as her seniors. Even her mentor, Dr. Darby, always praised her and considered her a potential successor.

She had never once made a mistake regarding medicine. That was until today. So she was annoyed.

“So, I was wrong?” The invigilator’s lips twisted to a frown, and he was speechless. He felt ashamed of his actions.

“Young man, you surprised me. But I have a question for you. Can you guess why I’ve added aconite to the medicine?” Linden smiled at him thoughtfully

“It’s to poison us,” Dustin answered confidently.

“Oh? Could you explain?” Linden raised a brow

“Based on the herbs, their properties, and the dosage. The toxic effect should start in about 30 minutes. And if I’m not wrong, this is all for our second test,” Dustin said calmly.

“And what else?” Linden nodded in approval.

“They mentioned that the second test is to produce medicine. But what you want us to do is to come up with the antidote while we are poisoned. However, it won’t be easy to produce the antidote while we are experiencing the effects of the toxin.” Dustin revealed the truth.

“Hahaha… Young man, you sure have talent!” Linden laughed heartily, his eyes shining with admiration toward Dustin.

“You are right! That is our next test for you. Whoever manages to produce the antidote will move on to the next round. Whoever fails to do so will never live to see the next day!”
