“Dustin, let’s not talk about that old man anymore.”
Autumn swiftly changed the topic. “The important matter now is to think about our future plans.
“If you support me, I can gain control over the entire Hill family within days!”
“When have I agreed to work with you?” Dustin asked coldly.
“What?” Autumn frowned.
“I’ve already said so much. Aren’t you the least bit tempted?”
“You willingly killed your father. If I collaborated with a beast like you, it would only ruin my
“Besides, I will expose all you’ve done to the public. So prepare to face your death!”
Dustin gestured to Cornelius. Cornelius understood his instruction and dashed forward to pin Autumn to the ground.
“Rhys! You’re going back on your word!
“You agreed to my proposal earlier on! Why?” Autumn roared, not giving up.
He was just one step away. One step away from success.
Power, authority, and fame had been so close he felt he could touch them. Why did things turn out this way?
“I’m not the best person out there, but I’m not a beast.” Dustin glared at him.
“Knock him out and bring him back! We’ll deal with him publicly tomorrow!”
Early the next morning, people from all walks of life gathered at the entrance of Zephyr Lodge.
The Boulderthorn guild, the Zen Order, the Combat Priests, the Soul Reapers, and many more came after they learned about what was happening.
The Balerno and Glenstead martial arts alliance leaders and elders were also present.
Even those from the Jade Maiden Sisterhood were there to witness the drama unfold.
Seven days had passed, and it was time for Dustin to explain Paul’s death.
“Sir Reeds, I heard there have been no activities on Dustin’s end for the past few days. Could he be

Conrad, who was at the front of the crowd, looked on with amusement.
“Well, it seems Sir Melling is in a good mood today?” Ronald asked, looking at him with displeasure.
“You’re mistaken, Sir Reeds. Dustin has made a name for himself as the youngest grandmaster in
Balerno. Of course, I’d wish such an incredible genius could be safe.

But only Dustin knew that he didn’t cough up blood because of Augustus. It was because of Septemortis.
The poison was like a maggot in his bones. Every time he used his true energy, it would take the opportunity to get in.
The more true energy he consumed, the more aggressive the poison.
Watching Dustin make his way over, Cornelius was both excited and concerned. “Sir Rhys, are you alright?”
He was excited because his gang leader was actually a low–profile young grandmaster.
Even in the entire world, he was one in a million
He had a bright future ahead of him!
However, he was concerned. If Dustin got some kind of hidden injury from the battle, things would
In a life–or–death battle between grandmasters, one could easily injure one’s core.
“It’s just a small injury. It’s nothing.” Dustin waved his hand nonchalantly..
“Good” Cornelius sighed.
“You look like you got hurt pretty badly. Take this.” Dustin flicked a red tablet into Cornelius‘ hand.
“Thank you, Sir Rhys!” Cornelius swallowed it in one gulp.
After taking a few breaths, the blood surging through his chest began to calm down.
The effects of the medicine were shocking.
“Rhys, how–how dare you kill my master?!” When Terry returned to his senses, he flew into a rage. “A life or death battle doesn’t just prove who is stronger. It also decides who gets to live or die.”
