Chapter 279 


General Jenkins and Jade were stunned as they watched Bloodbest suddenly drop to his knees. They looked

at each other, taken aback.

What was he doing?

He was perfectly fine just a moment ago, so why was he kneeling on the floor now?

Was he saying a prayer before he tortured him?

Compared to the others‘ surprised expressions, the skinny man appeared terrified, his face drenched in cold


As a student of the Executioner, he couldn’t possibly be oblivious to the true meaning of the kirin tattoo.

In the entire world, the black kirin tattoo was one of a kind. Not to mention, it had already become a symbol of power!

No wonder that person looked familiar. No wonder he dared to call the Executioner by his real name.

It turned out that this person was the Kirin of the Rhys family, who almost incited chaos that could have devastated an entire nation ten years ago!

Shit! What kind of sins had he committed?

He’d actually run into a harbinger of doom of this magnitude!

No! While the shitstorm hadn’t hit, he had to escape as soon as possible!

“Mr. Bloodbeast, what’s the matter? Are you hurt somewhere?”

Watching the skinny man’s knees buckle, General Jenkins immediately rushed over and tried to help him up.

“Fuck, it’s all your fault!” Bloodbeast flew into a rage. He raised his hand and delivered a harsh slap across

General Jenkins‘ face.

General Jenkins staggered backward, nearly losing his balance. “Mr. Bloodbeast, why. Why did you hit me?” He cupped his stinging face, unable to process what had just happened.

“Why did I hit you? You should be grateful I didn’t slaughter you! What did I ever do to you? If you’re so fucking suicidal, you don’t have to drag me down with you!” The skinny man kicked General Jenkins to the ground. Then, he grabbed his bag and fled.

He even dropped his torture tools but didn’t dare turn around to pick them up, acting as if he’d run into a ghost.

“Huh?” General Jenkins was once again dazed. Just what had scared Bloodbeast–the infamous ruthless killer -into fleeing for his life

“How did things turn out this way?” Jade’s eyes widened in disbelief. She had initially thought that Bloodbeast could help her get her revenge. In the endeven before he’d used his torture tools, he’d run away for some


Chapter 279

What was going on?

“Punk, what the hell did you do? How did you manage to make Bloodbeast spare you?!” General Jenkins‘ gaze

shifted to Dustin, glaring fiercely.

He’d been a distance away earlier, so he couldn’t hear their conversation.

“You have me tied up: what could I have possibly done?” Dustin asked.

Since Bloodbeast was Albert’s student, it was no surprise that he had recognized the kirin tattoo on his back.

“Hmph, that had better be the case!” General Jenkins glowered. Then, he turned to Jade and whispered, “Jade, this bastard seems to know the dark arts. Are you sure he’s a nobody?”

The way Bloodbeast had left was too strange; he couldn’t help but feel suspicious.

I’ve already looked into him. He’s just a small fry who was once someone’s live–in son–in–law. Now, he’s nothing but a parasite, leeching off the Harmon family. We don’t need to be afraid of him,” Jade said with certainty.

With the Grant family’s influence, looking into Dustin had been a piece of cake. Hence, she was very sure that Dustin didn’t come from a powerful background.

“Well that’s rather strange,” General Jenkins said, looking thoughtful.

“Don’t tell me you’re scared?” Jade frowned. “Considering your status, don’t tell me you can’t take care of that pipsqueak?” 

“Don’t be ridiculous. As if I’m scared of him!”
