Chapter 1119: Exile or Respect
Shiela hadn’t expected Dustin to be so unreasonable, resorting to violence at the drop of a hat. She realized that she had completely misjudged him.
She had mistaken a villain for a good person.
At this moment, her disgust for Dustin deepened.
“Miss Murray, it was just a joke. Don’t take it so seriously. As long as they don’t provoke me, I won’t do anything to them,” Dustin said calmly.
“Hmph! You looked like you were joking just now? If it weren’t for Shiela stopping you, you might have already made a move!” Vivian was still indignant.
“Dustin! Don’t think that you can act arrogantly just because you have some martial arts skills. The General Murray’s Residence is not a place for you to run wild!” Chase said with a dark expression.
“When others don’t offend me, I won’t offend them. But if they provoke me, I will definitely strike back. This is my advice to you, and I’m giving it to you for free,” Dustin said, his expression unchanged.
“Shiela! This guy is too arrogant. In my opinion, we should just kick him out. Otherwise, it will only lead to trouble!” Vivian continued to fan the flames.
“That’s right! I don’t believe that he would dare to cause trouble here today! It’s General Murray’s birthday celebration, and there are many important guests here. If this guy causes trouble, it will bring shame to the entire Murray family!” Chase agreed.
“Shiela, think about the bigger picture. It’s best to drive this guy away. Otherwise, it will bring endless trouble!” the others chimed in with their persuasion.
“Dustin! You are not welcome here. Please leave!” Shiela finally issued the eviction order.
Her friends were right. If this guy caused trouble here and harmed someone, it would ruin the entire birthday celebration.
“Drive me away?”
Dustin raised an eyebrow, and a self-deprecating smile appeared on his face. “Miss Murray, they are guests, and I am also a guest. They can say whatever they want, and you want to kick me out just like that. Is that appropriate?”
He had once considered Shiela as a little sister, and even when they had misunderstandings, he had no resentment. He believed that even if they couldn’t be friends, they should at least treat each other with respect. But now, he realized he was wrong.
Once people had preconceived notions, they would become stubborn and could eventually become enemies.
Her actions now vividly illustrated this point.
He had saved her several times, but in return, he received an order to leave.
“I didn’t invite you, and you are not a guest of the Murray family. I have the right to ask you to leave!” Shiela replied with determination.
“Miss Murray, you didn’t invite me, but your grandfather did. If you want me to leave, you should ask your grandfather if he agrees,” Dustin said calmly.
“You—” Shiela was somewhat infuriated.
She hadn’t expected him to be so thick-skinned, refusing to leave even after being ordered to do so. Moreover, he had invoked her grandfather’s name to pressure her.
“Shiela! Don’t listen to this guy’s nonsense. How could he possibly know General Murray? He’s just being shameless!” Vivian continued to provoke.
“Shiela, you don’t need to argue with him. Just tell someone to kick him out!” Chase suggested.
“Dustin! If you don’t leave, don’t blame me for calling someone!” Shiela’s gaze turned sharp as she spoke sternly.
“Shiela! You’re going too far!”
Finally, Cornelius couldn’t hold back any longer and scolded her angrily. “Our young Lord has saved you multiple times, and you’re not even grateful. Now you want to return kindness with enmity? Are the people of the Murray family all ungrateful?”
This statement left Shiela speechless.
