Chapter 204

“You don’t have anything else to say? I knew you were lying! Why? How did you turn out this way? Why do you have to push my boundaries over and over again? Must you keep causing trouble until we turn against each other? Dahlia’s face was full of disappointment, and she felt disheartened.

“It’s not that I’ve changed, but you’ve never believed in me, whether it was before or now. Since you won’t believe me anyway, then there’s nothing to talk about. I’ll figure out a way to repay you for what you did for Gregory.” As soon as Dustin finished speaking, he hung up.

Could things go back to the way they were before?

No, it was impossible.

This was his answer to her question last night.

“Dustin, what do you mean? Are you trying to cut ties with me? You … Dahlia still had more to say, but the line had already gone dead.

Dustin’s indifference and coldness felt like a knife in her heart.

She couldn’t understand why the two of them couldn’t get along peacefully. Why must they hurt each other?


Why couldn’t he try to understand her?

“Dahlia, I told you a long time ago that Dustin is inhuman. I’m sure you’ve seen his true self by now,” James said, adding fuel to the fire.

“Dahlia, we won’t go and beg him. That animal will get his reckoning sooner or later!” Florence added another


“Mom, don’t talk anymore; just focus on getting better. I’ll think of something to help Julie.” Dahlia’s mental

state was mess.

“Dahlia, you don’t have to worry too much. My father is already talking to his connections about Julie’s arrest. I’m sure we’ll hear something soon,” Matt said comfortingly from the side.

A woman was most vulnerable when she was injured.

If he took advantage of this opportunity, she would be his soon.

“Thanks.” Dahlia forced smile.

While they were talking, a police car suddenly stopped at the entrance of the villa.

The car door opened, and Julie jumped off the car joyfully.

As soon as she stepped through the door, she hollered, “Aunt Florence, I’m back!”


When the others saw her, they all had looks of surprise.

Florence even dropped her sickly act and leaped off the bed.

Grabbing Julie’s hand, she looked her up and down with a worried face. “Julic, are you okay? Did you get hurt in there? Do you know how worried I was about you?”

“Aunt Florence, I’m fine. I was just locked up for half a day. I didn’t get hurt.” Julie smiled.

Although she was a little shaken up, she was glad to be back safe and sound.

“You were released after just half a day? That was quick” James said, a little flabbergasted.

“The situation was rather strange. When they interrogated me, they were so fierce and scary. However, after they got a phone call, they immediately released me,” Julie said, sounding confused.

A light quickly went off in Florence’s head. “Ah, I know! It must have been Matt’s father who helped you. If it wasn’t for Mr. Laney Sr.’s connectionsyou’d probably still be stuck in there.”

“Really? Thank you so much, Matt!” Julie hurriedly thanked him.

“No, it was just a small favor. It was nothing.” Matt faked a humble smile.

Although he said that, he thought the situation was weird, too. According to the plan, his father would only

help Julie after he got the formula for Immortunol.

So why had she been released so soon?

“See. Dahlia? This is the difference between Matt and Dustin! That Rhys bastard has no capabilities aside from using dirty tactics to get people in trouble! Then look at Matt–every time there’s a critical moment, he always lends us a hand and saves the day! Now you should know which man cares about you the most,” Florence said, purposely dragging one man down to lift the other up, showering Matt with praise.

*Exactly, Dahlia! That loser is not good enough for you. Matt is still the best match for you. Since you’re already divorced, the way I see it, you should just get together with Matt, James added.

“I don’t want to talk about this right now.”
