Chapter 304

The man’s arrogant gaze swept the room.

“I’m Dustin. May I know why you’re here?” Dustin glanced at the man before continuing to drink.

“I’m a messenger of Boulderthorn’s Royal Valor. We want to challenge you to a duel. You killed Joshua Hummer, our seventh disciple, so something has to be done. My senior will be visiting Swinton to challenge you to a duel to the death!” the man declared haughtily, throwing them a piece of paper.

As a well-known guild, they had to do things publicly, including exacting revenge. They were also going to use this opportunity to show off their power.

“You can take that back. I’m not interested.” Dustin refused without even looking at the paper. “Are you scared?” The other man sneered. “Weren’t you brave when you killed Joshua? Why are you shying away after hearing that my senior is your opponent?”

“As if. I don’t even know who your senior is,” Dustin replied calmly.

“I’ll tell you right now. His name is Tatum Thunders, and his name can be found on The Heavenly Immortals. He’s also one of the eight geniuses of Boulderthorn. His nickname is Fanatic Blade!” The man humphed proudly.

“The Fanatic Blade, Tatum Thunders?” Maximus exclaimed, his expression paled.

As a Boulderthorn disciple himself, he has heard of Tatum before.

Boulderthorn has eight subsidiary guilds-Royal Valor, Quickshields, Forsakenstriders, Shadowfall, Thundersong, Frostlanders, Boneguard, and Killingbane.

Each guild had its respective principal disciple, who were expert martial artists ranking only below the guildmaster. In terms of power and strength, they were even stronger than the second- in-commands of Boulderthorn, and Tatum happened to be the principal disciple of Royal Valor.

Only in his early thirties, the genius has already made his way onto the Heavenly Immortals.

“Fanatic Blade? Never heard of him. He better stay away if he doesn’t want to die.” Dustin couldn’t care less.

“Arrogant fool!” The man humphed. “No one has ever dared to refuse our challenge, you brat. If you refuse to accept the duel, everyone around you will suffer, not just you, so you better think this through.”

“Are you threatening me?” Dustin narrowed his eyes dangerously.

“That’s right! We’ll be waiting for you at Mount Halgue in two days’ time. You’d better be prepared for the consequences if you don’t show up. And don’t even think about running away. We’re watching you. Rather than hiding like a mouse, why don’t you die honorably in a fight instead? At least your pride will be intact, and no innocent people will be hurt. Well, you should think carefully before making your decision. Goodbye.” With that, the man spun around and left.

The man wasn’t worried that Dustin might not accept their challenge since no one had ever gotten away from Boulderthorn.

“We’re in trouble now, Dustin!” Maximus’ expression was grave. “Tatum is no ordinary fighter. He’s a legendary figure who already achieved divinity five years ago. He’s leagues above Joshua Hummer!”

“Really? He sounds strong,” Dustin responded calmly.

“I think you should bring your loved ones and run as far as you can right now, or you’re doomed!” Maximus warned

“Run?” Dustin smiled softly. “He isn’t enough to scare me.”

“Do you have another plan?” Maximus asked curiously.

“There’s always a solution to a problem. Since they’re challenging me first, I should give them a response too.” Dustin smiled coldly.

His mood was already terrible, but now that Tatum was stupid enough to poke an angry bear, Dustin might as well use that man to relieve some anger.
