Chapter 269

“It’s you!” Dakota was momentarily taken aback when she recognized Dustin. Similarly, he looked at her funny with a hint of astonishment. Never had he expected that the two bitches were the relatives that Dahlia had

mentioned to him. What a small world!

“Oh, did you know each other?” Dahlia’s quizzical gaze traveled between the two.

“Not only are we acquainted,” Dakota hissed through clenched teeth, “He’s also the guy who beat us up yesterday!”

“What?” Everyone was surprised to learn that.

“Um, Dakota, did you get the wrong person?” Florence questioned cautiously.

“No! How could I? I’d recognize him even if he turned into ashes! I also suspect my mom’s gotten a headache from his slap!” Dakota seemed merciless

“Right! I must have fallen sick because of that slap! Get someone to arrest him!” Jane was bellowing in bed. She had been unable to put yesterday’s events behind her, and she was extremely furious upon meeting her

enemy again.

“Dustin, what’s the matter? Why did you hit them?” Dahlia was baffled to learn that he had a grudge against

Jane and Dakota when she introduced him to her Glenstead relatives.

“They deserved it, Dustin replied bluntly. “They reversed and crashed into another car, almost killing the victim. But they acted unreasonably like two bullies. I slapped them across their faces because I couldn’t

stand them anymore.”

“You rascal! Do you know who they are? How dare you hit them?” Florence was incensed to learn that Dustin had laid a finger on her two Goddesses of FortuneShe took it as a personal affront as well.

“Don’t waste your time talking to him! Call the police now!” Dakota seethed resentfully.

“No, wait!” Dahlia jumped out to stop her. “This might be a huge misunderstanding. There’s no need to make this bigger issue than it is. Why don’t we have Dustin work on Aunt Jane’s illness to make up for his


“Hmph! Nobody needs his help!” Jane spat on the ground. “Just look at his behavior. What if he makes things worse? Will anyone take the responsibility?”

“That works. I have no intention to cure you either,” Dustin said in an unperturbed manner. “Oh, by the way, do not forget what I told you before–headaches on the first day, coughing up blood on the second day, and paralysis on the third day. You’ll suffer a sudden death on the fourth day. Since today is the second day, it will not take long before you start coughing up blood. By that time, you’ll have to leave your fate in the hands of


“Y–y–you’re a jinx! Quit the nonsense! As Jane trembled in anger, her headache worsened as well.

“See? Did you hear him? How dare he curse my mom! This is an order–get him arrested! If you don’t. I’ll hold you accountable! Dakota started ordering people around. Florence’s face fell, and she yelled at Dustin,” Dustin Rhys! Apologize to them now! If you don’t, I will not go easy on you!”

Chapter 269

“Apologize to them? They don’t deserve it.” Dustin chortled. “If anythingthey should be apologizing to me. It they do that, I might consider saving the mother.”

“Bullshit! Who do you think you are? You aren’t qualified to treat my mom!”

“Yeah! With our status, we can hire any skilled doctors we want! We don’t need you showing off here!”

Jane and Dakota were being stubborn. In their eyes, an ordinary man like Dustin had no business attending to

their medical needs

“Hah! Sure, keep being stubborn, I do hope you don’t have to beg me in the end.” Dustin chuckled with a shake of his head.

“Beg you? What a joke!” Jane sneered. “Look, even if I am suffering from a horrible headache or in so much pain to the point of jumping off a building. I still wouldn’t give in to you!”

“Okay. We shall see.” Without further ado, Dustin took leave. Dahlia frowned at his exit, but after a moment of hesitation, she ran after him.

After they left, James brought in an old man dressed in a cloak and dashed into the bedroom. “Mom! The skilled doctor you asked for is here!”

“The skilled doctor? Where is he?” Florence asked in a hurry.

James jumped aside and presented the old man in a cloak, introducing him, “This is Dr. Fenton Reyes from Bloomington Medical Center in Stonia. He’s veteran in his field and had ancestors who were royal

physicians! No doubt, his skills are legendary!”

“Royal physicians?”
