Before going on his mission, Nelson had texted his wife. However, Cecilia became worried when he didn’t pick up the phone, so she rushed over with their daughter.
The sight of blood at the door only made her even more uneasy.
“Nelson? Where are you?” Cecilia cried out worriedly.
All Kirin Gang members remained silent, their heads lowered. The entire manor was quiet.
When Cecilia finally arrived at the meeting room, she was stunned.
Was that bloody corpse on the floor, her husband?
She stumbled forward in disbelief. Reality sank in when she saw the man’s face, and she threw herself over the body and began to weep.
“Wake up, Nelson! Wake up! Please open your eyes! Oh, why did this happen?” Tears streamed down Cecilia’s face.
Haley was crying as well. She ran over to Nelson and kept pushing his body.
“Daddy, wake up! Weren’t we going to celebrate my birthday? You promised me you would bring me to the theme park!
“Wake up! Y–you broke your promise. Bad daddy! I–I–I don’t like you anymore!” Haley sobbed.
“What’s wrong, Daddy? Did I make you angry? I promise to be a good girl from now on, so please wake up …”
Dustin teared up as he watched Cecilia and Haley bawl their eyes out, his chest aching for them.
Full of remorse, he went onto his knees before them. “I’m sorry, Cecilia … I couldn’t keep him safe.”
“You’re a bad man!” Haley ran up to him and began pounding on his chest with her little fists.
“You promised you would take good care of Daddy! You lied to me! I hate you! Give the transformer back to me!
“I don’t like you anymore. I’m not going to let you be Mister Strong anymore. You’re a bad man!” Haley wailed inconsolably.
“I’m so sorry, Haley. It’s my fault. I wasn’t able to protect your daddy. It’s all my fault …” Dustin gathered Haley into his arms as tears flowed down his cheeks.
He had no idea how to explain things or console her, so he could only apologize.
That day, the manor fell into a sorrowful silence.
After some time, Cecilia and Haley were worn out from all the crying. Then Dustin knocked them out by stabbing them behind the necks with his needles.
“Please look after her.” Dustin lifted Haley and placed the little girl into Natasha’s arms.
“I will.” Natasha nodded. Her eyes were bloodshot and brimmed with tears.
She owed Nelson her life. So, from now on, she’d treat Haley like her own.
“Who did this?” Dustin slowly raised his head, his expression oddly calm.
However, he couldn’t mask the murderous glint in his eyes. He was like a demon who had finally been woken up.
“It was Felix! He’s leading a rebellion with the Charging Tiger gang!” One of the Kirin Gang disciples answered.
“Felix?” Dustin took a deep breath before spitting. Find him. I want to tear him apart!”
