Chapter 742
“Stop throwing a tantrum, Dahlia.” Dustin frowned.
Dustin said, “I wouldn’t mind giving you anything else, even if it costs millions. But I just can’t give you my Panax root.”
“You’re right. I am throwing a tantrum! If you don’t want to give it to me, I’ll think of something else!” Dahlia turned her head away furiously.
In the past, Dustin would get it done no matter what request she made. Now, all she was asking for was a Panax root, yet he turned her down firmly.
He obviously didn’t care about her anymore. It seemed like she wasn’t that important to him anymore after he got a new girlfriend.
“Dahlia is giving you a chance to prove yourself, Rhys! You better not ignore her kindness!” Florence exclaimed.
“Exactly! With Dahlia’s looks and influence, many other men would be clambering to gift her Panax roots! You better appreciate this chance!” Julie jeered.
“If you need a Panax root, I can use my connections to help you get one. However, I can’t give you the one I have because I need to use it to save someone,” Dustin answered thoughtfully.
“Fine! You said you’re going to use it to save someone. So tell me, who’s the person that’s more important than Grandpa Regulus?” Dahlia demanded.
“You know this person. It’s Gregory.”
“Mr. Jones?” Dahlia frowned, her temper cooling slightly. Then, she asked, “What happened to him? Is he si ck again?”
In her memories, Gregory was either drinking or sleeping. She rarely saw him sober. And because he was a heavy drinker, his health wasn’t the best.
“He’s fine for now, but that doesn’t mean he’ll stay that way. I need to gather more herbs to treat him,” Dustin answered truthfully.
“Since he’s fine right now, you can lend us the Panax root. Once Sir Regulus gets better, we’ll return another one to you. How about that?” Florence persuaded.
“She’s right. Time is running out. Sir Regulus’ life is in danger right now, so you should prioritize us first!” Julie insisted.
To them, Regulus’ life would directly impact Dahlia’s future and her position, so it was far more important than Gregory’s life.
“My Panax root is too rare. It’ll be extremely difficult for you to find another as mature as mine. So I’m sorry. I can’t risk Gregory’s life.” Dustin shook his head again.
A wild 500-year-old Panax root was incredibly rare, so Dustin couldn’t afford to take any chances.
“Geez! Why do you have to be so stubborn? We’re trying to talk to you nicely, but if you’re still going to be so stubborn, don’t think about meeting my daughter again!” Florence snapped.
“Do you even care about Dahlia? She’s just trying to borrow your Panax root, and it isn’t as though she won’t return it. What’s the issue?” Julie was pi ssed.
“Alright, alright. That’s enough.” Dahlia frowned.
“Dustin has plans of his own, so we shouldn’t force him.”
ough she understood his actions,
she was still irritated. Dustin should know how to prioritize matters better.
Since Gregory didn’t need to use it immediately, why couldn’t he lend it to her temporarily so that she could treat her grandfather?
“Ms. Nicholson…” Just then, a tall, handsome young man in military uniform entered the room. It was easy to see that he was not a regular commander.
“Mr. Killian? What are you doing here?” When she saw the man, Julie lit up and rushed over with a bright smile.
“Mr. Killian?” Florence and Victoria exchanged glances before leaping up to welcome the new arrival, full of smiles.
This was the first time they met a real general since they’d only ever seen them on television, so the two ladies were excited and nervous.
