“Thank you for the offer, Mr. Killian, but I can’t accept such a precious gift.” Dahlia got over her surprise and became upset again. She hadn’t even repaid Gavin for his earlier kindness, so how could she accept his Panax root?

“Ms. Nicholson, a Panax root is meant to cure sic kness anyway. I don’t need it for now. So you might as well use it to save someone’s life. Think of it as an act of kindness.” Gavin smiled.
Florence cut Dahlia off before she could refuse again. “Dahlia, you should accept it. You can always repay the favor later.”
Florence kept/looking at Gavin eagerly.
“She’s right, Dahlia. Saving a life is much more important. Without this Panax root, what are we going to do about Sir Regulus?” Julie advised.
“But…” Dahlia was at a loss for words. It would be difficult to repay the favor, but she had no choice but to accept the gift since Regulus’ life was at stake.
“Ms. Nicholson, if you want to thank me, I do have a favor to ask,” Gavin suddenly said.
“What is it?” Dahlia raised an eyebrow.
“I’ll be hosting a banquet at Viridian Hotel tonight, so I’d like to invite you,” Gavin answered with a small smile.

“A banquet?” Dahlia hesitated before nodding in agreement. “It’d be my pleasure.”
Gavin had helped her a lot, so she couldn’t refuse him.
“Great. See you tonight.” Gavin smiled and left after chatting for a moment.

“What do you think of Mr. Killian, Dahlia?” Julie blurted out as soon as Gavin was gone.
“He’s a general despite his young age, so he’s definitely an excellent person,” Dahlia responded casually.
“Not just that. I think he likes you.” Julie grinned teasingly.
“Nonsense!” Dahlia glared at Julie. “We’ve just met. How can he like me?”
“Why would he give you a Panax root if he didn’t like you? He even invited you to his banquet. Isn’t it obvious enough?” Julie pressed.

“But…” Dahlia was speechless. She glanced at Dustin and let out a breath of relief when she
realized he didn’t seem bothered.
“Dahlia, Mr. Killian is young but accomplished. He’s an excellent man that’s hard to come by. Why don’t you try and flirt with him a little? Who knows what might happen.” Florence had an eager expression.

If Dahlia were to marry a general, they’d also gain fame. It would be more fame than what they’d get if she married an aristocratic family. After all, being powerful was more important than being wealthy.
“Mom, you’re doing it again!” Dahlia grumbled.
“Haven’t you gotten over Rhys yet?” Florence glared at Dustin disdainfully. “He knows that you need a Panax root, but he won’t give it to you. What’s the point of keeping a man like him?”
“Exactly!” Julie nodded. “You saw how that guy refused despite how we begged him, yet Mr. Killian, whom we barely know, was willing to help us. Can’t you see who’s the better choice?”
Dahlia frowned when she heard this. After comparing the two men, she realized that Dustin seemed much more selfish than Gavin.

“Are you going to believe him when you’ve only met him once?” Dustin suddenly asked.
“Are we supposed to believe you, then? What makes you think you’re trustworthy?” Florence snapped.
“She’s right. Mr. Killian not only saved Dahlia, but he also helped us in times of need. What about you? What have you done?” Julie sneered.

“First, he saved you. Now, he’s gifting you a Panax root. Don’t you think this is too much of a coincidence?” Dustin asked.
“What do you mean?” Dahlia raised an eyebrow.

“You don’t know who that man is or his intentions, so you shouldn’t trust him so easily,” Dustin warned.
“Hmph! I bet you’re just jealous.” Julie jeered. “You’re jealous that he’s better and more powerful than you!”
“It’s bad enough that you’re useless, but how dare you insult Mr. Killian! You’re despicable!” Florence yelled
