Chapter 1256 The Bet
“Your Highness, it has nothing to do with us! We didn’t do anything!” The members of the Harmon family were in a panic, bowing and begging for mercy.
“When an avalanche occurs, there is not a single snowflake that is innocent,” Dustin said coldly. “You betrayed your own, collaborated with the enemy, and caused the Harmon family to fall apart, leading to its destruction. Do you dare to say that you did nothing?”
The people were instantly speechless.
The Harmon family used to be one of the top noble families in Millsburg, but now they were divided and in decline. These people were indeed difficult to absolve of their responsibility.
If they hadn’t fought for power and wealth with Trent, if there hadn’t been infighting within the family, wouldn’t they have had a better life?
Unfortunately, there were no “ifs” in this world.
“I don’t care about the mistakes you’ve made. When Natasha wakes up, she will deal with you,” Dustin said, not saying much, and waved his hand. “Take them all away and keep them under strict guard!”
A group of Kirin Gang disciples rushed forward, binding the members of the Harmon family and taking them away.
“Now, it’s your turn.”
After dealing with the Harmon family, Dustin suddenly turned his gaze to the members of the Grant family.
“This time, I want to settle the score once and for all.”
“Your Highness, all of this was done by the Harmon family, it has nothing to do with us!” Thaddeus tried to defend himself.
“You think I’m a fool?” Dustin sneered. “From the very beginning, it was your grandson, Tyler, who was causing trouble. He manipulated and harmed the Harmon family for his own selfish reasons, driving the Harmon family to internal strife, causing their downfall and ruin. His various malicious actions have crossed the line.”
Thaddeus was taken aback, his voice trembling as he said, “Your Highness, is there some misunderstanding? My grandson has always been law-abiding, how could he possibly do such things?”
“Are you pretending to be ignorant?” Dustin’s gaze was piercing.
“I have no knowledge about it if there’s any, young Lord,” Thaddeus said fearfully. “Now, ask my grandson what he’s done. He should… not have offended Your Highness, right?”
“Grandfather, it’s useless. Even if I deny it, he won’t believe me,” Tyler shook his head, clearly not intending to argue any further.
The father and daughter’s attempt to deceive with a false confession had no effect, even if they exposed everything, in the end, it would be of no avail.
“Oh? You’re clear-headed,” Dustin sneered. “Tyler, for all the things you’ve done behind the scenes, how do you think I should deal with you?”
“Dustin, you’re only relying on the backing of the West Lucozia King’s Mansion,” Tyler raised his head and regained his arrogant demeanor. “If we set aside our backgrounds, I might not necessarily lose to you!”
“Is that so?”
Dustin raised an eyebrow as if he was becoming interested. “Do you think that as long as my last name isn’t Rhys, you can be assured of victory?”
Tyler’s head was held high again, and he regained his arrogant demeanor. “Dustin, you’re Kirin, right? The unparalleled genius of the world? Dare you make a bet with me?”
“What kind of bet do you propose?” Dustin seemed to be getting interested.
“According to the rules of the martial world, let’s have an open and fair fight!” Tyler’s eyes shone brightly. “If I win, you must leave this place immediately, and there will be no more investigation into the past. If I lose, you can deal with us as you see fit, whether it’s life or death, no objections!”
