Lily strongly disapproved of Sheila having a relationship with Dustin.
“Why do things have to be like this?” Sheila was crying under a dim streetlight after leaving the hospital. She loved Dustin regardless of his background, but everyone disapproved of their relationship.
She asked herself, “Should I follow my heart and go after love, or should I listen to my family and hide my feelings?”
Suddenly, a mysterious black SUV with fake license plates pulled up beside Sheila. Men in masks got out of the vehicle and surrounded her.
Sheila asked, “Who are you? What do you want?” She instinctively stepped back. The leader of the masked group said, ” Our master wants to talk to you, Ms. Murray. Please come with us.”
“I won’t go with you! Leave me alone!”
“Catch her,” the leader ordered his men, and they quickly rushed to stop Sheila. “Let go of me!” She struggled as she cried for help. “Sorry, Ms. Murray, but we must take you with us.”
The leader signaled his men to put Sheila in the car. Then, they drove away, leaving one of her shoes behind.
Meanwhile, inside Zephyr Lodge, Dustin was drinking with Kirin gang members that night. They were toasting Maximus’s leadership of the Flame Dragon Guild, which had been vacant for a while,
Despite recovering from his illness, Gregory still hadn’t given up drinking. At that moment, Dustin’s phone rang. An unfamiliar voice said, “Hello, Mr. Rhys? Your girlfriend, Sheila, is with us. To ensure her safety, bring the Cherusia to the Northern Steel Factory. Remember, you must come alone.”
The call ended abruptly, and then a video was sent to him. In the video, Sheila was tied up with masked people surrounding her.
Dustin’s face darkened as he watched the video. He hadn’t expected Sheila to encounter trouble right after he left the hospital. He guessed the kidnappers must have already planned this meticulously.
“I need to step out for a moment. Enjoy yourself!” Dustin promptly rose from his seat and left. With only a few people aware of the Cherusia, Dustin couldn’t help but wonder who was scheming in the shadows.
