Brittany snorted and followed the group inside.
“What a bunch of lunatics.” Dustin shook his head as he mumbled to himself.
He finally realized where Brittany’s confidence came from. How could their disciples be any better if they had such an arrogant leader?
“Well, my teacher has a cold personality. Please don’t take it to heart.” Brittany was feeling awkward.
“Forget about it. I’d rather not argue with women.” Dustin waved his hand dismissively.
He would have driven them out much earlier if it wasn’t for Nikki. He was indebted to Nelson and could only repay him by helping his family.
“Thank god.” Nikki breathed a sigh of relief before changing the subject.
She asked, “By the way, I want to ask you something. Since you’re the boss here, have you ever heard of the Jade Maiden Scripture?”
“Jade Maiden Scripture? What’s that?” Dustin’s brows furrowed.
“The Jade Maiden Scripture is the Jade Maiden Sisterhood’s long–lost treasure.
“Madam Edith hasn’t been able to break through to the grandmaster level because she’s missing a crucial technique from the scripture.
“I heard it was recently found in the Southern province, Millsburg. But I’m still not sure who has it. So I thought to ask if you heard of anything,” Nikki briefly explained the situation.
After their brief interaction, she unknowingly started to trust him. She hadn’t even noticed it herself.
“The Jade Maiden Scripture, was it? Alright, I’ll have someone check about it discreetly. I’ll let you know immediately when there’s news.” Dustin nodded.
“Not bad. You’re quite efficient!” Nikki nodded in satisfaction.
“Don’t worry. Once we find the Jade Maiden Scripture, I’ll speak to Madam Edith on your behalf and have her reward you handsomely. Even marrying Brittany won’t be a problem when that time comes!”
“Hah! Thanks, but keep her for yourselves.” Dustin looked disgusted. Only an idiot would fall for Brittany.
Dustin returned to his room once he completed the arrangements for the Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples. He started healing his injuries.
The poison from Septemortis still affected him, and he could only try to suppress its effects.
Paul Hill’s death was still a mystery. The murderer had disappeared without leaving any clues, and it was challenging to find a breakthrough.
He had only six days left, and the martial arts alliance members had their eyes on him. If he couldn’t find the murderer, there would be no way to conclude this.
Just as his mind was full of distressing thoughts, his phone rang. It was a call from Dahlia.
Without even thinking, he rejected the call. However, in a few seconds, his phone rang again.
After Dustin rejected the call, Dahlia would call again. This repeated a few times before Dustin couldn’t take it any longer. He answered the call in annoyance.
“What do you want?” He questioned harshly.
“Dustin, I need to speak to you. Tonight at 8:00 pm. I’m not leaving till you come.” Dahlia’s voice was hoarse.
“Sorry, I’m busy. I don’t have the energy to talk to you,” Dustin refused immediately. “I’ll kill myself if you don’t come.” Then, she hung up.
