“I was, but I’m already divorced,” Dustin answered straightforwardly.

“Aw, damn!” Adam grinned. “If that’s the case, my sister finally has a chance! I’ll be your brother–in–law soon.”

“Get lost!” Dustin rolled his eyes. “What kind of brother are you? Why would you throw your sister under the


“She threw herself in!” Adam retorted in exasperation. “You have no idea how much she bugged me alter finding out that you were still alive. She would have flown back for you if the war hadn’t broken out at the


“Has Scarlet been well?” Dustin suddenly asked.

“You’re still worried about her? That kid’s been practicing martial arts since young, and with her talent, she’s

already a grandmaster. I can’t even win against her anymore. Who would dare to cross her?” Adam responded


All his life, Adam has only ever been afraid of two people–Dustin, the person who’s been throwing punches at him since they were kids, and his sister Scarlet. He always lost his dignity when it came to them.

Dustin chuckled. “She is talented, so it’s natural that you can’t beat her.”

It’s been ten years. He never expected the little girl who used to follow him around everywhere to become

Stonia’s well–known Goddess of War.

“Won’t you just marry her? No one else can handle her!” Adam imploredThe sooner his sister got married, the

sooner he’ll be free from being forced to be her sparring partner and ending up with bruises all over his body

every day.

“Nonsense!” Dustin kicked the other man. “Scarlet’s nothing more than a sister to me.”

“But she might not see you as her brother.” Adam shrugged. “I’m just going to put it out there. She probably won’t marry anyone but you, so you’ll have to take responsibility for her.”

“That’s enough. Shut up and drink!” Irritated, Dustin poured Adam full glass of wine. “Drink it!”

Adam boldly downed the entire glass in response.

Chatting away while drinking, the two of them quickly began to feel tipsy.

“That reminds me, when are you going back?” Adam asked coldly.

“Why would I go back? Isn’t it quite nice here? All I need to worry about is making sure Gregory recovers nicely.

“Dustin responded indifferently.

“That’s true. Still, the Rhys family needs an heir.” Adam sighed.

“There’s still Austin.”

“That useless idiot? He only cares about his debaucherous pleasures. Who knows how many people will die if he takes your place.” Adam snapped disdainfully.

“He isn’t that bad. The kid’s smart. Just give him some time, and he might outshine you.” Dustin said seriously.

“Are you serious? You’re pitting me against him?” Adam looked at him suspiciously.

“Many people have called me a loser in the past few years too.” Dustin smiled but didn’t elaborate further. With that woman around, his step–brother could never be mediocre.

“Holy shit! Look at that chick!” Adam lit up suddenly.

“Where?” Dustin followed Adam’s line of sight and spotted a Lamborghini at the restaurant entrance. smartly dressed man emerged, and a gorgeous lady stepped out of the passenger side in a long black dress, as if she

had just come out of a painting.

“Why is it her?” Dustin frowned, instantly sobering.

The beautiful woman was none other than Dahlia!
