“Playing hard to get, are we?” Brittany looked at Dustin as though she had seen through him.
“Alright, if a meal isn’t enough, I’ll agree to a date too. I’ll even let you hold my hand. Are you happy now?”
From her point of view, she had made a huge sacrifice. After all, all those men who fawned over her didn’t even have the chance to get close to her.
“Honestly, I’m really curious why you’re so confident.” Dustin was speechless.
He had clearly rejected her. But Brittany was so full of herself and thought the world of herself.
She seemed to believe that she was a goddess and that every man would fall at her feet.
“Why?” Brittany flipped her hair over her shoulder.
“Because of my beauty, charm, perfect figure, and noble status, of course! I excel in every aspect possible!”
“Amazing!” Dustin gave her a thumbs up.
“Since you excel in every aspect possible, why don’t you cure Madam Edith’s internal injury? I won’t be needed then.” Dustin turned and left.
“Stop right there!” Brittany ran up to him and blocked his way.
“Why would I come here for you if I could treat her? Quit wasting time! You better treat her right now. If her condition worsens because of your delay, I’ll be furious!” she shouted.
“Is that so? I’d like to see you get furious.” A small smile crept up on Dustin’s face.
He looked like he was waiting for a drama to unfold.
“You-” Brittany gritted her teeth. She looked like she was on the verge of exploding in anger.
In the past, every man who saw her would be captivated and spellbound by her, especially when she took the initiative to reach out to them. Nobody had been able to resist her charms.
But Dustin could! He clearly was experienced in romantic affairs. The offer of a date and the chance to hold her hand didn’t tempt him.
Brittany assumed that he must be lusting after her body then.
“How despicable!” she thought.
For her, saving Edith was important. But she could not accept to be tainted by such a despicable man!
She was a clean and noble lady!
“No way! Even Brittany can’t handle this man?”
“He’s capable of resisting Brittany’s seduction. He’s something else!”
“Could it be possible that … he doesn’t fancy Brittany?”
“That’s not possible! Brittany is a charmer unlike any other. Every man’s eyes light up when they see her. This bastard is just good at pretending!”
The disciples of the Jade Maiden Sisterhood whispered among themselves.
Their beauty had always been their greatest advantage, and it worked every time. They could
just whine and look pitiful, and countless men would give their lives for them.
Unexpectedly, their best move failed today. It was hard for them to accept it.
“Brittany…” Letitia communicated with her in secret.
“Keeping Edith alive is of utmost importance.
“Sacrifice a little and coax this man. Once Edith is cured, you can teach him a lesson.”
“Got it.” Brittany nodded lightly and turned to Dustin.
She looked at him arrogantly. “Seems like regular conditions aren’t able to satisfy you. Fine. I’ll give you a nice surprise then.”
“Oh? What kind of a surprise?” Dustin raised a brow.
“Come closer. I’ve got something to tell you.” Brittany waved him over.
Dustin approached her and bent down to hear what she had to say.
Suddenly, Brittany stood on tip toes and kissed his cheek.
“How’s that? Will that do?” She shot him a condescending look with her arms folded.
“Damn you!” After collecting himself, Dustin raised his hand and smacked Brittany across the face.
That immediately sent her flying several feet away.
Then, he raised a hand to wipe his face in disgust. He looked like he had just experienced something disgusting.
