A Valiant Life Chapter 964
Nobel Prize Award Ceremony.
It was time for the final award.
The scientists were eagerly waiting, wondering who would receive this award.
Nowadays, people had started to value the medicine award more and more. In the past, people had been more excited about the physics award but as the quality of life had increased, people were more mindful of their own health.
The award representative went on stage and picked up the name sheet. “The Nobel Prize in Medicine goes to…”
Everyone held their breaths and waited in silence.
All the viewers in China were dumbfounded. In each of their hearts, certain words popped up.
‘F*ck your mom! Did you make a mistake?’
Hall, who was sitting below the stage, was stunned. His face appeared blank.
He had never expected himself to receive the award. But that was his name that had been announced.
The scientists at the side saw that Hall was motionless, so they patted him on the shoulder. “Congratulations.”
Hall awoke from his daze but he didn’t show the joy of someone who had won an award. Instead, he felt that he didn’t deserve it.
In the broadcast room.
“F*ck. How could it not be Master Lin?”
“Haha, I’m dying of laughter. I don’t even know what you idiots were waiting for. How could someone with the surname Lin even win the award? Do your faces hurt now from being slapped?”
“^F*ck off. I’ll only recognize Master Lin.”
“I’m done watching. I’m done. What the heck is this? If this isn’t because of a f*cking shady deal, I’ll eat sh*t.”
“It doesn’t make sense. Master Lin developed such an amazing thing. Even if you take away the leukemia prescriptions, that anorexia cure should have been enough for him to win the award. What’s the reason for this?”
“F*ck. I’m not watching this anymore. This is outrageous.”
Lin Fan shrugged. “See? I told you all that I wouldn’t get the award, so I really won’t.”
Elder Liang’s neck was red. “There’s something wrong with this. How could Little Boss not get the award with what you’ve managed to discover? Could it be that that guy brought someone back to life or something?”
“Yeah, there’s definitely something wrong.”
Zhao Zhong Yang was stunned too. He had really believed that Brother Lin would definitely receive the award. But now, the reality was hard to accept.
This was completely different from what he had imagined.
Lin Fan waved his hand. “Alright, alright. Go back to your shops. Let it go.”
Now that he hadn’t received the award, he still had to reconcile them. This really felt strange.
Papa Lin and Mama Lin, as well as a group of neighbors, had gathered in front of a television.
Papa Lin, in particular, had been very excited. When he heard the name of the winner announced, he lost it.
“This…” Papa Lin had no words. He felt that this time, he had embarrassed himself. At the same time, he felt injustice for his son.
How did he not receive the award?
Mama Lin saw her partner’s face all red, so he comforted him, “Alright, alright. Our son didn’t get the award. It’s no big deal.”
Papa Lin shook his head. “This isn’t right.”
“Yes, this is not right. Let’s stop watching and go down for a stroll.”
Papa Lin waved his hand. “No, I have to keep watching and see what this guy has achieved.”
The moment that countless people had been waiting for ended in disappointment. Besides Lin Fan, everyone watching the broadcast had similar thoughts going on in their minds.
Hall walked up on stage. The award ceremony was ending. The medicine award had been the climax.
“Hello, can I say a few words?” Hall said to the award committee representative.
The representative said with a smile, “Of course.” Then, he faced everyone and said, “The Nobel Prize recipient wants to share his joy with everyone. Let us welcome him.”
There was laughter from the audience mixed with applause.
Many of the scientists who were friends of Hall’s were very happy. Although they hadn’t received the prize, they were happy for Hall.
Hall cleared his throat. “I want to tell a story to everyone. Perhaps I shouldn’t call this a story as it is true.”
When the crowd heard this, they quietened down and listened attentively.
“My name is Hall. There are quite a number of you here that are my friends. I’m from a small state in America. I have a fortunate family but, very unfortunately, a few months ago, a problem suddenly appeared in this fortunate family of mine…”
The people in the broadcast room couldn’t quite understand what this guy was saying.
And even some of the scientists at the scene didn’t know what he was talking about. But they continued listening silently and attentively.
“Yes, leukemia. My wife contracted the very terrifying leukemia. I could only immerse myself in my research every day in order to forget the despair of it. But everytime my work ended, I would see my wife on the sickbed and my heart wouldn’t be at peace.”
At that moment, the people understood. Hall was describing the difficulties and challenges he had faced in his life and in his work.
This kind of speech was very common. Every scientist had problems in their families. Before receiving the award, they had all endured countless sufferings.
This was a very common way of opening a speech.
However, the stage now belonged to Hall, so they quietly listened.
“However, a few weeks ago, I was in my friend’s cafe, drinking coffee, when I suddenly saw that a Chinese medicine shop had opened opposite the cafe. At that time, my friend said that he would have to endure the awful smell of Chinese medicine when making coffee in the future. I felt that that was just idle talk and it didn’t draw my attention.”
“But when I looked over, I was enraged because, on the door of the Chinese medicine shop, there was a poster that infuriated me.”
“It said that leukemia can be cured and you only have to use Chinese medicine.”
When he said these words, everyone started laughing.
“Haha, what a joke. Chinese medicine is mystical indeed.”
“When a real medical scientist sees a joke of an advertisement like that, there is sure to be a disaster.”
The netizens in the broadcast room were stunned.
“F*ck. What is this guy talking about?”
“F*ck. Could that be the prescription developed by Master Lin? Which boss brought it overseas? Could he have been beaten to death already?”
“Look at the laughing faces of those people. I know that this definitely isn’t something good.”
As Hall heard the noise from below the stage, he gestured for them to quieten down. “That’s right. It’s the mystical Chinese medicine indeed. But it is not funny. Because it is thanks to this that my wife’s leukemia has been cured.”
The audience was stunned. Some of their smiles froze. It was as if they had heard something unbelievable.
Hall continued, “And later on, I found out from that Chinese medicine shop owner that this Chinese medicine prescription was developed by a Chinese medicine master from his country. Also, this master was nominated for the medicine award too.”
“When I heard that I was awarded the prize, my first reaction wasn’t joy, but shock. I didn’t dare to believe that I had received the award instead of the Chinese medicine master from China who conquered leukemia.”
“Hence, I feel that this award should be presented once again and not to me.”
