Chapter 284

The person he had arrested turned out to be the eldest son of the Rhys family, an existence that could shake

the military effortlessly.

“We we’re doomed

Blood had drained out of Jade’s face the moment she heard Dustin’s real name, feeling unbelievably sorry for herself. She shouldn’t have tried to avenge Joshua. There was no way a loser with broken arms and a shattered core was worth the lives of her entire family.

“Jade Grant, this is what you fucking call a nobody?” General Jenkins spun around and shot Jade a vicious glare. “I never did anything to you, so why the hell are you dragging me into this mess?” 


“–” Jade was about to burst into tears.

“How dare you trick me! You’re dead meat!‘ General Jenkins roared before leaping toward Jade with his mouth

wide open. Things became chaotic as he tore up the woman’s face with his teeth.

“Come on. Let’s go have a drink. Dustin Ignored them and left with Adam.

Meanwhile, inside the East Swinton Hospital ward, Dakota’s face hardened after finishing a call.

“So? Was there news about Dustin? Can he be saved?” Dahlia quickly asked.

“He can’t. The person who arrested him was General Jenkins from the Grant family. tried calling the elders

but they said he wasn’t listening to their requests. Glenstead’s military has no jurisdiction over Balerno.

Dakota shook her head helplessly.

“The Grant family?” Dahlia frowned. “But why? How did Dustin piss them off?”

“I dug around and heard that he committed a grave crime. Apparently, he barged into the Hummer family’s home and began killing people. He even crippled Edwin Hummer’s son, Joshua Hummer! Worse, Joshua’s fiancée is Jade Grant, the daughter of Sir Robert Grant. There’s no way the Grant family would let Dustin go

easily. He’s doomed.” Dakota shook her head sadly.

She didn’t care if Dustin died, but she still needed him to heal her mother, and her mother would be in grave danger if Dustin died now. Dakota wondered if she still had enough time to seek out miracle doctors.

Isn’t there another way?” Dahlia was upset. “What if I beg the Grant family? I’ll pay any amount, even if I go


“Nonsense, Dahlia!” Florence shrieked. “Why should you go so far for a man you divorced?”

“He’s helped me too many times. I have to save him!” Dahlia answered firmly.


“It’s useless.” Dakota shook her head. “The Grant family is one the strongest families in Balerno. They could

care less about your measly assets,”


Chapter 284

“Then what should we do? We can’t just sit here and wait.” Dahlia’s brows furrowed deeper.

“Money is useless. We need to beg someone influential to negotiate with them.” Dakota suggested

“Someone influential? Who?” Dahlia asked tentatively.

“The only one who can stand against the Grant family is Mr. Langford from Stonia.” Dakota suggested. “Saving Dustin should be a piece of cake if you ask Mr. Langford for help.”

“Mr. Langford?” Dahlia was troubled. There was no reason for him to help a stranger like her.

“That’s right. Dahlia. The best way is to beg Mr. Langford for help. I managed to save his number during dinner last night. I’ll call him right now!” Florence drew out her phone eagerly and dialed a number.

While she was worried that her daughter might sacrifice all her wealth for Dustin, she also hoped to push Dahlia closer to Luis. During their meeting last night, Florence realized that Luis had feelings for Dahlia. At the same time, the Glenstead Nicholsons were also hoping for the two to get married.
