“Stop!” Suddenly, Dahlia rushed over and put herself in front of Dustin.
She yelled, “What are you doing, Dustin? It’s my mom’s birthday today! How could you just start beating people up? You’re disrespecting me!”
“This is a private matter between me and Gavin. It has nothing to do with you,” Dustin responded coldly.
“What do you mean it has nothing to do with me? You hit my mom and caused a scene! That’s not okay!” Dahlia snapped.
She couldn’t believe that Dustin caused so much trouble the moment he entered. Things would. become much worse if this continued.
“Dahlia Nicholson, we’ll talk about our issue later. For now, please step aside!” Dustin’s tone was stern, revealing his annoyance.
“What if I refuse? Will you hit me too?” Dahlia demanded.
“Don’t push me!” Dustin frowned.
“When did you become like this, Dustin? Are you even the man I know?” Dahlia’s eyes widened disbelievingly.
She never expected him to reply so coldly and ruthlessly.
“I’ve always been like this. You were just too blind to see the truth,” Dustin retorted frankly.
Dahlia was infuriated and tried to hit him. But Dustin caught her hand and sneered, “You have no right to touch me anymore. Besides, I don’t owe you anything. So get out of my way!”
He pushed her away, causing her to nearly trip. A red handprint was on her pale wrist.
“What?” By the time Dustin turned around, Gavin had already escaped.
“Damn it!” Dustin scowled and was about to go after Gavin but was stopped by Dahlia again.
“Stand right there, Dustin Rhys! It’s fine if you’re pissed because of me, but you can’t hurt Mr. Killian!” Dahlia exclaimed stubbornly.
“Do you have any idea what you’re saying? Are you willing to become my enemy because of Gavin Killian? Dustin was pissed
He had lost his patience after Dahlia repeatedly tried to stop him.
“I’m doing this for your good. Mr. Killian has a powerful background. You’ll be in a lot of trouble if you hurt him!” Dahlia tried to reason with Dustin.
“I’ll say it again-Gavin Killian will die today. Anyone who tries to stop me will be my enemy!” Dustin growled.
“Why are you being so stubborn? Can’t you calm down?” Dahlia shouted.
“Calm down? My friend was brutally stabbed hundreds of times! How do you expect me to remain
calm?” Dustin practically roared.
The murderous glint in his eyes had returned.
“W-what on earth are you talking about?” Dahlia was taken aback.
She’d never seen Dustin look so angry, and his demonic demeanor scared her.
“Gavin Killian ambushed me and ordered his men to kill my friend. We are now mortal enemies! Do you get it yet?” Dustin spat.
“T-that’s impossible!” Dahlia frantically shook her head.
“Mr. Killian is a kind and just person There’s no way he’d do something like that!”
She couldn’t believe the heroic man who saved her was evil.
“I’ve already said what I needed to. It’s up to you whether to believe me.” Dustin inhaled deeply. utterly disappointed.
“There must be a misunderstanding. Everything will be fine if we clear things up. Please calm down,” Dahlia tugged at Dustin’s sleeve and begged.
“I don’t want to waste my time explaining things to you anymore. Move!”
Dustin stopped holding back. He flung Dahlia aside and walked out.
“Dustin, we’re over if you walk out!” Panicked, Dahlia tried to threaten him.
Still, Dustin walked out resolutely without looking back.
Dahlia’s knees went weak, and she collapsed onto the floor as tears streamed down her cheeks.
