“Take care, and don’t do anything reckless anymore. We’ll meet again in the future.”
Dustin turned to leave after saying farewell. It seemed like things were fated to end between them. “Mom, that man was weird. Have I met him before?” Dahlia frowned as she watched Dustin leave. Somehow, he made her feel nostalgic. But she couldn’t recall who he was.
“No, of course, you haven’t met him before. He’s just an insurance agent. Why would you be concerned about him?
“Here, lie down and have a good rest.” Florence was overjoyed.
“That’s right, Dahlia. You’ve just had a traffic accident and barely survived. Don’t overthink things,
Julie chimed in.
To them, Dahlia forgetting about Dustin was a good thing.
“Okay.” Dahlia nodded. Though things seemed weird to her, she didn’t give them further thought.
Dustin’s emotions were a mess on his way back.
The current outcome was a relatively good ending for both of them. But somehow, Dustin couldn’t find it within him to feel happy.
Maybe he still had some lingering feelings for Dahlia. But he was sure that it would fade away with time.
That evening, when Dustin arrived at Zephyr Lodge, a flustered Cornelius met him at the door.
“Sir Rhys! You’ve come back at the right time! Those Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples are giving us trouble again!”
Cornelius quickly rushed up to Dustin.
“What’s wrong?” Dustin asked.
“Some of our men had a conflict with them, and they broke all our men’s legs! Those women are going out of hand!” Cornelius was furious.
“How dare they go around beating people up on my territory? Let’s go. I’d like to see the situation.”
Dustin frowned and headed straight for the infirmary. Cornelius followed right behind him.
After treating Edith, Dustin thought he would let her rest there for two more days. But now, barely half a day had passed, and they were already causing trouble.
Those women were a troublesome lot!
Outside the infirmary, several disciples of the Kirin Gang lay on the ground, wailing in pain. All of them had their legs broken.
The Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples stood around them arrogantly, looking down on them.
“Hmph! How dare you provoke us when that’s all you got? You truly overestimate yourselves!
“Ladies! Throw them out!”
Then, the Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples dragged those from the Kirin Gang by their broken legs. The screams and wails instantly got louder.
“Stop!‘ Dustin strode in and looked at them coldly.
“How dare you lot behave so unruly here!”
The Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples backed off when they saw Cornelius behind Dustin. They feared him
“Sir Rhys! You’ve finally come!”
“These women are so arrogant! They just beat us up because things didn’t go their way. They’re too much!”
The disciples of the Kirin Gang, who had their legs broken, immediately complained.
“What exactly happened?” Dustin demanded icily.
“A woman tried to force her way into the lodge, so we tried to stop her. But she was so unreasonable and broke our legs without any warning. She even humiliated us!” One of the disciples of the Kirin Gang huffed.
“Who was it? Who dares harm my men?” Dustin’s sharp gaze swept around the room.
“It was me!”
A pretty lady made her way out from the crowd. She had her head held high, and her eyes were arrogant. She looked like she thought she was better than everyone else.
It was Brittany who had been driven out of the sisterhood!
