Chapter 1118: A Showdown at the General Murray’s Residence
“I’ve come to congratulate General Murray on his birthday. I don’t want trouble, so please step aside,” Dustin said calmly in response to the threats and insults.
“Congratulate him? Hmph! Are you even qualified?” Vivian sneered. “What kind of person are you? What gives you the right to congratulate General Murray? If it weren’t for Shiela’s face, do you think you could enter the General Murray’s Residence? Stop dreaming!”
“That’s right! Look around with your big eyes. Among the people here to congratulate General Murray, who isn’t an important figure? You, a lowly insurance salesman, what qualifications do you have to stand with us?” Chase added disdainfully.
Shiela remained silent, gazing at Dustin with mixed emotions on her face. The events of last night had already strained their relationship, and the sight of Garrett lying in the hospital bed filled her with resentment.
“I advise you not to underestimate others,” Dustin replied with indifference. “I can enter because I received an invitation. As for my identity and qualifications, it has nothing to do with you.”
“Invitation? Hmph, who knows if you stole it or snatched it? A scum like you could do anything!” Vivian continued to disdainfully taunt him.
“Dustin, don’t delude yourself with grandeur. We all know your true identity, and you’re not worthy to stand here with us!” Chase said, his voice full of contempt.
Dustin finally showed some impatience. “Are you two done bickering?”
He stared at them with icy, piercing eyes. “I’m not close to either of you. What I do is none of your business. If you dare to speak out of line again, don’t blame me for being impolite!”
His sudden outburst left Vivian momentarily stunned. Dustin had always been silent in the face of her taunts in the past, as if he hadn’t heard a word.
She had initially assumed that he was too afraid to retort. However, his recent words and fierce gaze made her suddenly realize that he was not an easy target to provoke.
Garrett’s condition was a clear example of that.
If Dustin were to lose control and attack them recklessly, there was little they could do to stop him.
“Are you… you dare to be so arrogant!”
Dustin’s unexpected burst of anger caught Vivian off guard.
Although she had taunted Dustin in the past, he had always remained silent, seemingly unfazed. This sudden display of assertiveness made her realize that he was not as weak as she had thought.
” Dustin, I advise you not to be too presumptuous! This is the General Murray’s Residence, do you dare to cause trouble here?” Chase warned with a stern tone.
“That’s right! I don’t believe you would dare to act recklessly here!” Vivian regained her confidence.
The General Murray’s Residence was heavily guarded, and even if Dustin had the audacity, he wouldn’t dare to make a scene openly.
Thinking of this, she became more self-assured.
“Are you under the impression that your lives are more precious than Garrett’s?” Dustin’s voice grew colder as he slowly advanced.
His intense killing intent pressured the group, causing their faces to change, and they quickly took a few steps back.
Shiela suddenly stepped forward, her face filled with anger. “Dustin, I won’t allow you to harm my friend after hurting my cousin. I absolutely won’t allow it!”
As Shiela spoke, she positioned herself in front of her friends, resolute and determined.
Facing her, Dustin paused for a moment, his expression slightly softening as he looked at her.
