Chapter 1361: A Month of Nightmare
“Stop! Who are you?”
As soon as Dustin and his companions got out of the car, the two guards at the entrance of the Langford Mansion became alert.
“I want to see Mr. Ethan Langford. Go inside and announce it,” Dustin calmly stated.
“Is the head of the Langford family someone you can see just because you want to? Submit a formal request tomorrow and wait for a response,” the left guard replied coldly.
Dustin didn’t waste words and gestured.
Maximus quickly understood and dragged Eddie out of the car, tossing him onto the ground in front of the gate.
“Fourth Young Master?”
The two guards took a closer look and their expressions changed instantly. “Who are you people? How dare you lay hands on someone from the Langford family? You have quite the audacity!”
“Tell Mr. Ethan Langford that an old friend has come to visit,” Dustin said emotionlessly.
“Hurry… inform my uncle…” Eddie weakly cried out from the ground.
The two guards exchanged glances, not daring to hesitate. One of them maintained their guard while the other immediately rushed back inside to report.
Three minutes later, a group of fully armed guards, with an imposing aura, surrounded Dustin and his group.
“Who wants to see me?” At this moment, a middle-aged man with a sturdy build and a trimmed beard came out, hands behind his back.
The man had a square face, thick eyebrows, and large eyes. He had an imposing presence without appearing angry.
Behind him, there were two elderly men with white hair, one fat and one thin. Both looked unassuming but had an inscrutable air about them.
With just one glance, Maximus felt chills down his spine and broke out in a cold sweat.
“Uncle… Uncle, save me!”
Eddie saw his uncle and cried out as if he had seen a savior. His wails were filled with despair.
“Who dares to harm someone from my Langford family?” Ethan’s first gaze was fixed on Eddie. His hair was disheveled, his face was swollen and bloody, and he appeared in a pitiful state. “Who has the audacity to do this?!”
Ethan’s face remained composed, but his gaze was sharp.
“Uncle, it’s him! He’s the one who attacked me!” Eddie staggered forward, pointed at Dustin, and cried out, “This kid is audacious and reckless. Not only did he cause trouble at the Comcast Club, but he also severely injured me. This time, you must help me seek justice!”
“Hmm?” Ethan followed the direction of Eddie’s pointing finger, ready to assert his authority. However, he suddenly froze in shock, his eyes bulging in disbelief.
“Is… it you?” Confronted with the familiar face, Ethan’s composure was shattered.
Several months ago, he had attended his nephew Luis’s engagement celebration in Swinston. During that time, he had experienced a month of nightmares and still trembled at the memories. He never expected that the source of those nightmares would show up at his doorstep. What was the purpose of this visit?
Was he seeking revenge for the past? Settling a score for Luis’s failed marriage?
Ethan Langford panicked, beads of cold sweat forming on his forehead.
Dustin’s reputation as a devil-may-care figure was notorious. He was someone even the imperial family had to tread carefully around. Even after ten years, the power of the West Lucozia Palace still loomed large, and Dustin remained a figure to be feared.
If this visit meant trouble for the Langfords family, the consequences would be unimaginable.
“Mr. Ethan Langford, it’s good to see you again,” Dustin said with a faint smile.
Ethan’s eyes twitched, and for a moment, he didn’t know how to respond.
Before him stood a man who was known far and wide as a harbinger of misfortune—Logan Rhys.
Even royal relatives had to be wary of him, and he was a figure everyone feared. If he were to cause trouble at the Langfords family, the consequences would be dire.
“Uncle Ethan, why are you still hesitating? This kid attacked me, so you should deal with him immediately!” Unaware of the situation, Eddie continued to clamor. “Kid, how dare you act so arrogantly at the entrance of the Langford family? You’re truly seeking your own death! This time next year will be your death anniversary!”
