Chapter 1395: A lifetime prison
“What? A lifetime in prison?!”
Upon hearing this, Dr. Elijah, who was standing nearby, immediately paled, and cold sweat started forming on his forehead. He had also suspected the authenticity of Dustin’s Emperor Card, so when he heard Isabela’s threat, he panicked. He didn’t want to drag Dustin into trouble because of him.
“Dustin, put the card away quickly, or we’ll be in big trouble!” Elijah tugged at Dustin’s sleeve and whispered.
As long as they destroyed the fake Emperor Card in time, they might avoid the worst consequences.
“You, surnamed Rhys! You are incredibly audacious! You dare to forge even the Emperor Card. I can see that you’re fearless!” Owen said with a malevolent look.
“Dustin, I’ll give you a chance to turn over a new leaf. Just admit your mistake, burn this card, and leave this place. I’ll pretend that nothing happened,” Isabela said with her head held high, displaying a hint of arrogance.
“Why should I admit to something I didn’t do? It’s your fault for not believing it. If you doubt its authenticity, feel free to accompany me to the Dragon Soar Bank,” Dustin replied calmly.
The Dragon Soar Bank Emperor Card was a gift from his brother, Thorian, before his departure, and it was undoubtedly genuine.
“Dustin, that’s enough!”
Isabela’s face darkened, and she snapped, “I’ve already exposed your deception. Why are you still being stubborn? I’m offering you a chance to turn back now. If you persist, don’t blame me for being ruthless.”
“What? Is Miss Isabela planning to have me arrested?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.
“If it becomes necessary, I will!” Isabela declared firmly. “Because I can’t stand by and watch you ruin yourself. Perhaps only after you’ve experienced prison will you wake up and change for the better. I’m doing this for your own good.”
“For my own good? Haha… Those words sound really unpleasant coming from you,” Dustin sneered. “Isabela, don’t you find your own hypocrisy disgusting? You’re clearly causing harm, but you have to put on this righteous act, pretending to be a justice-seeking hero. It’s sickening.”
“How dare you!”
Upon hearing this, Isabela was infuriated. “Dustin, I’ve shown restraint and given you face. You’d better not push your luck any further!”
“Young man! I order you to apologize to Isabela right now, or don’t blame me for not being polite!” Owen shouted sternly.
“What? Are you going to resort to violence? You’re welcome to try.” Dustin remained fearless.
“Wait a minute. There are too many people here, and openly using force would tarnish the reputation of our families,” Isabela whispered, gesturing to hold back Owen.
“Are we really letting him go like this?” Owen furrowed his brow, still feeling reluctant.
“Stay calm. To achieve great things, you must exercise patience,” Isabela advised calmly. “This is our territory in the South City District. Here, everything is under our control. Dealing with an unknown nobody like him is child’s play.”
“Alright, I’ll let this kid dance around for another day, for your sake,” Owen’s expression softened.
Due to the fire incident, there was a large crowd of onlookers in the vicinity, many of whom were recording videos and taking pictures. If he had acted just now, it could have been exposed, potentially causing problems. Therefore, he decided to wait and take revenge later.
“If you two dare not make a move, then please leave,” Dustin said indifferently. “Furthermore, I’ve already bought Healwell Clinic, so if there are any issues in the future, feel free to come to me.”
“Young man! Do you really want to go against us?” Owen grinned maliciously. “Alright! We’ll come looking for trouble with you in the future. I want to see how long you can withstand it.”
“Dustin, this is your last chance. Lower your head, admit your mistake, and hand over Healwell Clinic. If you do that, I’ll advise Owen to let you off,” Isabela said with an air of generosity.
