Chapter 438

Since he was quite free, he thought he could use some time to relax.

Twenty minutes later, Dustin and Abigail exited the car in front of a music bar. Compared to the lively and noisy atmosphere of a karaoke bar, the music bar was quieter. Friends could sit together, drink, chat, and listen to music. It was relaxing and comfortable.

“Abigail! Over here!”

Right after they entered the music bar, a short–haired girl stood up and waved at Abigail. Dustin followed the direction of the sound and recognized several familiar faces.

The short–haired girl was Nina Sharp. Another one was a popular guy in school, Mike Horton. Dustin thought the rest looked quite familiar but couldn’t recall their names.

The only person he couldn’t recognize was a girl in a school uniform. She looked young and pretty. The girl had a delicate oval face with exquisite features. She looked pure and innocent, like a fairy. With just a glance, she could capture a person’s attention.

“Sorry, we’re late. Abigail approached them with a smile and took the opportunity to introduce Dustin, “Uncle,

you’ve already met everyone else. So I won’t introduce them again. As for this person, she’s the star of today.

our guest of honor, Ruby Xenos.”

Abigail added, “Let me tell you a secret. Ruby is not only a popular live streamer with millions of fans, but

she’s also a star at our school.”

“Abigail, don’t be ridiculous. I’m just a trainee, still far from being a star,” Ruby pouted.

“Your singing is so beautiful. It’s only a matter of time before you debut. I believe you’ll become famous in no

time!” Abigail said with a smile.

“Whatever you say!” Ruby rolled her eyes.

“Look, I didn’t lie to you. I told you there would be beautiful girls here. Soare you impressed?” Abigail turned

back and teased Dustin.

Dustin glanced at her sideways and couldn’t be bothered to respond.

“I mean, Abigail, why did you bring an outsider with us when we’re here to drink and sing?” Mike seemed


“Yeah, Abigail, it’s Ruby’s birthday today, and it’s not quite appropriate to bring a stranger along.” Nina chimed


“It’s alright. The more, the merrier,” Unfazed, Ruby smiled.

“That’s right! This guy here is good at fighting. If anything happens, he can be our bodyguard.” Abigail nodded


“What’s the point of being good at fighting? If something really happens, it’s all about connections and relationships,” Mike sneered. Since Dustin stole the limelight before, he had been holding a grudge. He wanted

to use Lord Horst to deal with Dustin and settle the score. Yet the man slapped him right then and there. His face was still bit swollen.

“Alright, let’s not talk about that anymore. Since everyone is here, let Ruby sing us song.” Abigail quickly changed the subject.

“It’s been so long since I’ve heard Ruby sing. Today, we’re finally in for a treat!”

“Ruby, come on stage quickly. I can’t wait any longer!”

The crowd joined in the cheer.

“Well, I’ll try my best then.” Ruby nodded with a smile, then walked up to the stage and talked with the male singer. The male singer readily agreed and willingly gave up his spot.

“Oh, this young beauty is taking over the stage. Interesting.”

“Hey, pretty! Sing ‘The Love of a Boatman‘ for me!”

As soon as Ruby stepped on stage, she immediately drew the attention of countless people, especially the men who had a few drinks. They became even more excited and kept cheering for Ruby.

“I’m sorrydon’t know how to sing this song.” Ruby apologized.

“The Love of a Boatman is simple. You can learn it on the spot. As long as you sing this song, I’ll reward you!” A chubby guy walked forward with a smile, holding ten roses that he had purchased. Each rose cost one hundred dollars. He had spent more than enough to request a song.

“I really don’t know how to sing this song.” Ruby seemed awkward.

“I don’t care. I’ve already requested the song, and if you don’t sing, it means you’re disrespecting me.” The chubby man continued with an evil grin. “Of course, if you’re willing to have a few drinks with me, we can let this matter go.”

Upon hearing that, Mike immediately stood up, infuriated.
