“But-” Dahlia wanted to say more.
“Just go. I’ll be distracted if you’re here,” Dustin interrupted.
Left with no choice, Dahlia bobbed her head in agreement helplessly in the end. Since things had come to this point, there was no turning back.
As long as Dustin could come back unscathed, she was willing to give up everything and roam all over the world with him.
After making sure that Dahlia had left safely, Dustin’s gaze scanned around the place and then fixed on the Nicholson family. “What are you waiting for? Hurry up and leave!”
Dakota and Jane exchanged a glance. Then, they turned around and left on the spot.
Dahlia’s breach of promise had caused the Langfords to have a fallout with the Nicholsons. If the latter continued to stay there any longer, trouble might land upon them.
“What a jinx! Look at what you have gotten us into Florence stomped her feet in anger before fleeing away.
Now that the wedding ceremony had been ruined, the Nicholsons’ dream of living a wealthy and comfortable life went up in smoke. Most importantly, they had offended the Langford family. From now on, their days would no longer be peaceful.
At that time, Luis’ fourth uncle, Kingston Langford, suddenly stood up and said flatly, “You’ve got a nerve of steel, young man. No one has ever dared to humiliate us in public. You’re the first, and of course, you will also be the last! Frankly speaking, I’m quite impressed with your courage. But today is the day you die!”
As he spoke, he made a hand gesture.
Right then, a large group of armed guards barged in from every direction and surrounded Dustin, leaving him no way to escape.
“This is bad. Mr. Kingston is doing it for real. That brat is going to be done for.”
“He snatched the bride away blatantly and even got Mr. Luis red in the face. Even if he has ten lives, they are not even enough to pay back for what he has done.”
“Well, he only has himself to blame.”
The guests couldn’t help but mutter among themselves as they watched Dustin get trapped in the middle.
If you let go of Luis now, I will let you die in one piece.” Kingston had an indifferent expression as if he had control over everything..
Are you trying to scare me off since you have the strength in numbers?” Dustin glanced around without feeling any ounce of fear.
Yeah. You’ve got that right.”
“Sure. Let’s see who has more people, then!” Dustin took out his phone and dialed a number.
Five minutes later, the door of the banquet hall burst open. Mason rushed in aggressively with
hundreds of gangsters.
“Mason Zims from the Drey Group is here with the gang under Mr. Rhys’ orders!”
At the sight of this, everyone was stunned for a moment before they burst into laughter.
“Is this a joke? Are you trying to fight against us with this group of thugs?”
“Hmph! What an ignorant person! You’re thinking too highly of yourself!
“I’ll be so disappointed if this is your trump card.”
The group of guards led by Kingston had disdainful looks on their faces. They couldn’t believe that even some random thugs had the guts to provoke the Langford family.
“Hey, Rhys! Are you in your right mind? Do you actually think that you can outdo us with this bunch of small fry?” Luis laughed uncontrollably.
However, the smile on his face immediately dropped when the next group of people rushed into the hall
This time, Hunter was in the lead.
“The president of the Chamber of Commerce, Hunter Anderson is here to listen to Mr. Rhys’ orders!
Seconds later, another group of people showed up, and it went on for a few more rounds. “The chief inspector of the investigation bureau, Aspen Cruiser, is here to assist Mr. Rhys!” “Roderick Brooks from the Brooks Corporation is willing to do his best to help Mr. Rhys out!” “The mayor of Swinton, Alex Granville, is willing to stay till the end with Mr. Rhys!”
As the groups barged in one after another, the ridicule directed at Dustin gradually disappeared. It was replaced with shock and fear.
