Chapter 126

“This fellow really hit the jackpot! I can’t believe he really found a Blood Luminianth Root!”

“I know right? With a treasure like that, he won’t have to worry for the rest of his life!”

“Damn it! If I knew there was a treasure hiding in that piece of wood, I would’ve bought it myself!”

With the Blood Luminianth Root’s debut, the onlookers immediately started talking.

All of them looked at Dustin with a gaze full of envy.

“Fuck! This guy really struck gold!” James clenched his teeth, eyes filled with rage.

That’s odd, how did he know that there was a treasure hiding inside? Dahlia was more puzzled than shocked.

Everyone had no clue, even Mr. Walter.

And yet, Dustin managed to notice

“Is it really luck? Or was there another reason?” She wondered.

“Dustin, we really won big this time! But, how did you guess that a Blood Luminianth Root was hiding in there?”

Ruth asked the question that was on everyone’s minds.

“To be honest, I wasn’t sure as well. It was purely a guess.” Dustin said humbly.

“A guess? You’re saying that you had no idea there was a Blood Luminianth Root inside? And you still used

five million dollars to gamble?” Ruth was a little stunned.

“You can put it that way.” Dustin nodded

“I really don’t know whether to call you stupid or lucky.” Ruth gave him an incredulous look.

“I admit that it was indeed a big gamble, but my bet was right. When something goes wrong, there is usually a good reason behind it. There must be a reason for long–living Luminianth Root to wilt. I read about

something similar from a book before.” Dustin smiled faintly.

“You’re a genius! You really enlightened me today!” Ruth gave him a thumbs up.

Her respect for him immediately grew tenfold.

“Wait! This Blood Luminianth Root is mine!” Florence suddenly exclaimed.

She reached out to snatch the root but luckily was stopped by Ruth. “Hey! What are you doing?!”

“I’m not selling it! I’ll return your five million dollars. I’m not selling this Blood Luminianth Root anymore!” Florence was in panic.

This was worth ten billion dollars. How could she give it to someone else so easily?

“That’s right! We’re not selling it anymore! Give it back to us!”

After coming back to her senses, Julle chimed in.

Chapter 126

Everyone could not help but frown at their unreasonable behavior.

“Oi! Are you guys that shameless? The deal is done. Now you want to back out? No way!” Ruth blocked them from the Blood Luminianth Root, her expression fierce.

She had never seen such shameless people. They were laughing when they thought they had scammed Dustin. Now that they know they made a loss, they’re using all kinds of methods to get it back.

How disgusting!

“I don’t care! This Blood Luminianth Root is mine. You must return it to me today!” Florence exploded in anger.

It was like a child throwing a tantrum,

“Dustin! I’m warning you, you better give us back the Blood Luminianth Root! Otherwise, I won’t hold back on

you!” Julie glared at him with daggers in her eyes.

An invaluable treasure like this was enough to make them lose their minds.

“You were the ones who sold it voluntarily. We also handed over the money. Now that I discovered a treasure inside, you’re backing out? Do you think we’d really give it back to you?” Dustin brushed them off coldly.

“Stop the nonsense! If you weren’t so despicable and scammed us our Blood Luminianth Root, did you think

we’d sell it to you?” Florence roared in anger.

“Exactly! You clearly knew there was a Blood Luminianth Root inside. Why didn’t you tell us? You purposely

scammed us!” Julie said.

Hearing this, Dustin could only laugh. He was looking at two clowns.

“First of all, I didn’t know there was a Blood Luminianth Root in there. It was just a guessSecondly. So what if

I know there was a treasure inside? Why do I need to tell you guys? Also, you guys were the ones who harbored bad intentions and tried to scam someone else. Otherwise, why would you sell it to me? So, all in all, you guys brought this upon yourself!” Dustin said calmly.

Everyone nodded and agreed with what he said.

“Well said! This guy earned the treasure fair and square. He earned it with his talent!”

“When you scammed them, why didn’t you back out then? Now that you know you made a loss, you’re being


“That’s right! If you were to follow their dumb logic, wouldn’t the Blood Luminianth Root belong to Mr. Walter?”

The onlookers started to express their disdain.

“You–you all are ganging up on us, aren’t you? You scoundrels, I’ll kill you!” Florence yelled, ready to strike a


“Enough! You’ve made a loss! What’s the point of spilling your guts here? Are you not shameful enough?!”

Dahlia yelled at Florence.

“Dahlia, you…” Florence was stunned.

“What are you standing there for? Go!” Dahlia sald angrily, her face contorted in frustration,


“Mom, we’re definitely not getting back the treasure now. Let’s go home and figure out another way.” Before

the situation turned sour, James hurriedly convinced his mom.

His sister rarely gets angry, but once she does, no one will be spared.

“Dustin! I’m not done with you!” Florence also didn’t dare to act out. After giving Dustin a fierce glare, she left the room unwillingly.

“Humph! So what if you guys got a Blood Luminianth Root? A guy like you wouldn’t live long enough to use it!” Knowing that they lost, Julie left him a curse before leaving.

“Bleh, bleh, bleh!” Ruth mocked as they left.

“Dustin, those who possess treasures will attract the attention of robbersHaving a treasure like this is not an easy job. You should be careful” Dahlia’s gaze lingered on him for a few moments before leaving.

Because of that, Ruth’s senses were tingling. “Dustin, that gaze of hers was a bit weird. Are you guys still not

over each other?”

“What nonsense are you on about?” Dustin rolled his eyes.

“Hey! Don’t say that I didn’t warn you, but you must keep yourself together. Don’t give in to her temptations!” Ruth warned with narrowed eyes. She clenched her teethshowing her two canines that seemed threatening.

“Rue, what on earth is going on in that little head of yours? Now that we’ve got the Luminianth Root, let’s head home!” Dustin lightly knocked on her head.
