Chapter 658

For a moment, a commotion spread through the crowd. Felix Miller had just prostrated before Dustin, and now Chad Miller followed suit. What was going on? Was this what they called “like father, like son”? Though they didn’t exactly know what had happened, anyone could tell that the Charging Tiger gang was in trouble. They were sure the handsome young man possessed considerable influence.

“I was wrong, Mr. Rhys. It’s all my fault. I failed to recognize you, and I underestimated you. Please don’t take my wrongdoings to heart. I hope you can find it in you to forgive me,” Chad apologized as he slapped himself repeatedly. With each slap, a loud, clear smacking sound echoed, showing just how hard he was slapping himself. In no time, he quickly made up for the remaining 20 to 30 slaps that Dustin had left out.

“Please get things right. The person you should be apologizing to isn’t me,” Dustin said impassively.

Chad seemed caught off guard initially, but he quickly caught on and went over to Edmund and Abigail. Then, he kneeled and said, “I am truly sorry. This is all my fault. I beg for your forgiveness. I will compensate you ten times for all your losses!”

“Hah! Who wants your filthy money?” Abigail turned away huffily, not wanting to bother herself. with the likes of him.

“What are you doing, Mr. Miller? Please don’t kneel to us!” Edmund was so frightened that he quickly reached out his hand, signaling for Chad to stand up.

“If you don’t forgive me, I will keep kneeling until you do.” Chad seemed bent on receiving their forgiveness.

“Alright, alright, we forgive you. You’re forgiven. Please, do kneel any longer!” Edmund nodded. furiously, obviously overwhelmed by Chad’s behavior. Chad then turned around to glance at Dustin. Only when he saw that Dustin gave him no reaction did he slowly straighten up.

“Mr. Rhys, your magnanimity is truly admirable. You are a role model for people like us!” Felix quickly complemented him when he saw that the critical situation had been averted.

“Pay up first,” Dustin piped up.

“Yes, yes. Right away.” Without a moment’s hesitation, Felix immediately wrote a check for twenty million dollars check and handed it to Edmund.

“It’s… it’s too much!” Edmund dared not take the money.

“What do you mean it’s too much? He owes it to us!” Abigail didn’t waste any time and snatched the check from his hands, stashing it safely away in her pocket.

“Mr. Rhys, I’ve paid them.” Felix conjured up the brightest smile he could manage.

“Now that you’ve paid them, let’s talk business,” Dustin continued. “From what I’ve heard, the Charging Tiger gang is pretty powerful and possesses great influence in the city’s northern region.

“I wouldn’t say we’ve got great influence. We’re just doing okay, I guess. Of course, we’re nothing compared to you, Mr. Rhys.” Felix smiled humbly.

“Don’t give me that. I know your background pretty well,” Dustin said. “Truth be told, the Flame Dragon gang is looking to expand, so we’re recruiting talented individuals to join us. Would you be interested in joining?”

Me? Apologize to him? Why should I?” Chad held his face in his hand, looking both unwilling and aggrieved.

“Why should you? Because he’s the leader of the Flame Dragon gang, that’s why! And because he’s defeated Terry Doyle! Is that reason enough for you?” Felix roared.

“What? He’s the leader of the Flame Dragon gang?” Chad stood frozen in place upon hearing that. His previous defiance was replaced by complete awe. Though he had never met Dustin in person, he had certainly heard of him.

Dustin had shown up at the dueling competition as the leader of the Flame Dragon gang at the Doyles’ yesterday, intimidating everyone with his presence. Even the elderly master of the martial world personally went up to him to greet him. His talent and strength had marked him out as a person who would undoubtedly emerge as the champion, earning the awe and admiration of countless people.

No wonder his father feared him. So this was the impressive figure who nearly turned the Doyle family upside down! With a thud, Chad’s knees buckled, and he, too, fell to his knees under the astonished gaze of the onlookers.

“Join the Flame Dragon gang?” Felix was taken aback, and it took him quite a while to react. He was the leader of the Charging Tiger gang, so how could he possibly join the Flame Dragon gang? “If you join us, I’ll make you the vice leader. You’ll be on par with Nelson Horst.”

And what about my Charging Tiger gang?” An uneasy feeling washed over Felix.

“Easy, it’ll be absorbed into the Flame Dragon gang. Dustin dropped a bomb.

“What?” Felix was shocked. He thought Dustin had just mentioned it as a passing comment. Who would have thought that he meant what he said and had actually intended to absorb the entire Charging Tiger gang? Wasn’t that too much?

“What’s the matter? You don’t want to?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.

“Well…” Felix stuttered.

Everyone knew that it was always better to hold an important position in a relatively smaller setting rather than getting a less influential role in a larger, more prominent setting. As the current leader of the Charging Tiger gang, he had absolute control over every one of his members. It was a no-brainer that he wouldn’t want to be demoted to vice leader of the Flame Dragon gang. “If you don’t want to, I won’t force you

When Felix heard that, he heaved a sigh of relief. But Dustin’s next words hit him like a bolt of lightning

“I’ve always been someone who wins others over with my capabilities. I won’t force myself on anyone. This’s why the previous leader of the Flame Dragon gang, Harry Hall, chose to step back. So, what do you think? Do you think he made the right move?” Dustin smiled.
