Chapter 500 

When they took a better look, they realized that it was Julie Amberson.

“Dustin, why are you here?” Julie was surprised when she spotted him.

“Why can’t I be here? I’m the Chief Security Officer.” Dustin grabbed an apple and munched on it.

“Chief Security Officer? Dahlia, are you serious? I’m just a secretary, but you appointed him as chief officer.

Why?” Julie was aghast.

“I don’t need to explain my decisions to you.” Dahlia snapped at her with a stern look.

“By the way. I’m surprised that you can still call yourself a secretary. You were 32 minutes late on your first day at the job. How unprofessional of you!” She gave Julie a chance to grow and improve her skills after being

pestered by Florence and her aunt on the matter, but she was disappointed by Julie’s attitude.

“I was stuck in traffic just now. I had no choice! Anyway, I was only late for half an hour. That’s not a big deal, is it?” Julie did not take it seriously.

“Did I not ask you to wait in the meeting room with the materials half an hour before the meeting? Look at you

now. You were nowhere to be seen even after the meeting ended. How dare you say that it’s not a problem?” Dahlia slammed her hands on the table in anger.

“What? Is the meeting over?” Julie went blank.

“Thankfully, I memorized the details before the meeting. I would have to keep waiting if I had relied on you.”

Dahlia was irked. Her first day as chairman was crucial, but her secretary was not concerned at all.

“Dahlia, it’s my fault. I will be careful in the future.” Julie’s cheeks reddened in shame.

“I’ll let this slip, but you’d better not repeat your mistake!” She warned Julie, who nodded furiously. “That’s

enough for now. Go do research on the Flame Dragon Gang for me.”

“The Flame Dragon Gang?” Julie’s pupils wavered at the mention of the gang. “Dahlia, how did you get involved with them? They’re merciless bastards!”

“Why? Have you heard of them?” Dahlia raised a brow in curiosity.

“Of course! The Flame Dragon Gang is famous for being evil in this region. Whoever gets on their bad side will suffer a horrific death!” Julie explained with a grave expression.

“They sound powerful.” Dahlia frowned.

“Dahlia, what was the debt thing you mentioned just now?” Julie prodded cautiously, and Dahlia summarized everything that happened during the board meeting.

After the brief explanation, Julie’s face fell. “D–Dahlia, are you kidding me? Are you asking the Flame Dragon Gang to pay their debt?!”

“That’s right. It’s only fair to pay your debts,” Dahlia responded with a serious face.

“Oh, Dahlia, it’s always the Flame Dragon Gang that chases after their debtors. No one has done it the other

1/2

way around!” Julie was gripped by fear. “A billionaire once reported the Flame Dragon Gang because he was angered by their lawless behavior. Guess what happened to that guy? His family of eight vanished overnight, and their bodies have not been found until now! Hank Hoffman is clearly sending you to your death by asking you to demand that the gang settle its debts! You can’t fall for it!”

“I have promised to settle this issue. I need to see this to the end,” Dahlia said somberly.

“Dahlia, is money or life more important to you? You’re putting yourself at risk by asking the gang for debt payments!” Julie panicked in the face of Dahlia’s naive determination.

“That’s enough. Stop fighting.” Dustin, who had finished his apple, dusted his hands and stood up. “The Flame Dragon Gang isn’t a big deal at all. I’ll get them to pay the 70 million in debt. I promise that you’ll get back every single cent the company has been owed!”

“You?” Julie froze before sneering. “Who do you think you are? You have some balls to ask the Flame Dragon Gang for money!”

He smiled at her. “To tell you the truth, I’m the leader of the Flame Dragon Gang.
