Chapter 715

Dustin simply smiled and pulled out his phone before playing the voice recording of their conversation. Their agreement on the bet was loud and clear. After listening to the recording, both Florence and Julie blushed a crimson red. They hadn’t expected Dustin to record it.

“Dahlia, there are things to handle in the company, so I’ll be off now!” Julie quickly wormed her way out.

“Oh! Right! I’ll go help her out.” Florence nodded furiously. Then, the two of them escaped in a flash, without a moment to lose.

“That’s just how they are. Please don’t take it to heart.” Dahlia was exasperated too.

“Forget it. I’ll let it slip this time. But only for your sake.” Dustin appeared benevolent.

“Thank you. You’re the best!” Dahlia smiled. Then, as though having a sudden thought, she bit her lip and said shyly, “Dustin, I appreciate you always being by my side. Why don’t we get married again?”

“What?” Dustin was stupefied the moment he heard what she said. For a moment, he simply didn’t know how to react!

“To be honest, I’ve been giving it some serious thought for the past few days. I had acted too rashly in the past. I’d like to make up for my mistakes, and I hope that things can return to how they were before.” Dahlia had a serious look on her face. Because of how shy she felt, both her ears were flushed red, but still, she plucked up the courage to say the words that had been on her mind for quite some time. She just never found the right opportunity to say them. She knew that if she didn’t say them now, someday he’d be taken by someone else.

Dustin began to sweat profusely. Had it been in the past, he would have nodded straight away without a moment’s hesitation, but now, things were different. He realized that his feelings were more complicated now that Natasha was present. On the one hand, it was his ex-wife, with whom he had three years’ worth of memories together, and he still had lingering affection. On the other hand, it was a gentle and caring friend who had romantic feelings for him. He really could not choose between the two.

He considered himself both courageous and witty and was always decisive in various situations. However, when it came to love, he had to admit that he was a mess. Sometimes he resented himself for his indecisiveness when it came to things like this.

“What, are you not willing? Or do you despise me?” Dahlia’s brows knitted together slightly when she saw Dustin staying silent.

“Of course not! It’s just…” Dustin broke off mid-sentence.

“So, it’s because you can’t bear to part with Natasha?” Dahlia had a wistful expression. “Then answer this: between Natasha and me, who do you like better?”

Dustin’s thoughts became even more of a mess when he heard that. Who did he like more? Honestly speaking, he didn’t know either!

Dustin was anxious as beads of sweat formed on his forehead. Then his phone began to ring. That seemed to be a lifeline for Dustin, and he quickly fished his phone out to answer the call. “Hello? Who’s this?”

“Hey, Rhys! It’s me, Adam.” A familiar voice came from the other end of the line.

“Oh, hey buddy! Is anything the matter?” Dustin was pleased to receive the call from Adam. At least he proved himself useful in Dustin’s time of need.

“To be honest, I’ve got some good news for you.” Adam beamed and chuckled. “My sister has taken a leave from work, and she’s making her way to Millsburg as we speak.”

“Scarlet?” Dustin’s eyes widened. “What’s she coming here for?”

“To meet you, of course!” Adam feigned helplessness as he let out a sigh. “You have no idea how much she’s tortured me just to get out of me some information about you. I had no choice but to give in and tell her your whereabouts. Please don’t blame me for betraying you, brother. You have no idea what she is capable of. I really couldn’t take it any longer. I believe you have the means to handle her. Of course, you don’t need to worry too much. She doesn’t listen to anyone else but you. Everything will end up just fine if you can deal with her.”

“You fuc-”

“Oh right, I have some matters to attend to. I’ll hang up now. Good luck!”

Dustin was so frustrated that he was a hair’s breadth away from cursing, but before he could curse at him, Adam had already ended the call. Dustin could only clench his teeth to suppress his rising anger. That bastard really knew how to make things difficult for him. He was already having such a hard time handling both Dahlia and Natasha at the same time. If another person were to be added to the equation, a catfight might just break out!
