Chapter 445

The next morning. Dustin was reading medical literature when a silver Bentley pulled up at the entrance of the courtyard.

“Bad news, Dustin! Something happened to my dad!” Ruth rushed into the building and yelled anxiously.

“Calm down. Your dad won’t die yet.” Dustin slowly lowered his book, looking unbothered.

“Huh? How did you know?” Ruth was surprised.

“Didn’t I tell you yesterday? Your father was poisoned, and he won’t live past three days. This is only the second day, so he still has one day left.” Dustin answered.

“Then, what should we do? Can you treat him?” Ruth pressed.

“I can, but on one condition.”

“What is it?”

“I hope your family can agree to your sister’s request and break off the engagement with the Grant family.

“Break off the engagement?” Ruth frowned. “Dustin, this isn’t a matter to be taken lightly. My father won’t agree to it.”

The marriage was one that both families were expecting. Should the engagement be broken off, the relationship between the two families would worsen, which could negatively impact the Harmon family.

“Don’t tell me it’s more important than your father’s life?” Dustin retorted.

“You don’t know my dad. He’s always prioritized the bigger picture. For the greater good of the family, he’d rather sacrifice himself!” Ruth told him gravely.

“He’s that stubborn?” Dustin was surprised.

“Why else would my sister be forced to do something against her will? I would love for you to be my brother–in- law, but my dad will never allow her to break off the engagement.” Ruth sighed.

“What a stubborn old man!” Dustin frowned. At first, he thought he’d be able to use this incident to change the other man’s mind, but it seemed like that plan was bound to fail.

Suddenly, Ruth said, “If you want to stop them from getting married, I have an idea.”

“What is it?” Dustin asked.

“It’ll be hard to get through my dad, but you can always try someone elseFor example, the Grant family.” Ruth lowered her voice. “The Harmons‘ annual family gathering is happening tomorrow. I’m sure Tyler will send some gifts tomorrow. You should use that opportunity to kick up a fuss. You might be able to mess the

engagement up that way.

“Are you sure it’ll work?” Dustin thought about it.

“That doesn’t matter. You still have to try. I’m sure you’ll be fine.” Ruth puffed out her chest.


Chapter 445

Dustin stared at her tiredly without replying. She must spend too much time watching soap operas.

“I don’t mind saving your father, Roth, but I need to meet your sister first.” Dustin decided to compromise. He was more worried that he might take things too far, so he wanted to ask for Natasha’s opinion beforehand.

“No problem. I’ll get it down right now!” Ruth took out her phone and made a call. After a moment, she answered. “My mom agreed. As long as you can treat my father, she’ll let you meet my sister.”

“Deal!” Dustin sprung up and got into the Bentley to accompany Ruth back to the Harmon estate. He has been feeling anxious for the past few days. Now, they could finally meet again.
