Chapter 338

Because of Maximus’ appearance, the situation turned against the Langford family. While a few highly-skilled martial artists from the Langford family were eager to take action, they were cautious, afraid of hurting Luis.

“Both of you should leave first. Leave this place to me, Dustin,” Maximus said confidently. After the battle at Mount Halgue, he’d finally achieved divinity, and his skills improved tremendously.

“Leave?” Luis sneered.

“Where do you think you can hide? Even if you survive today, you will never escape our wrath!”

Dustin was about to leave when he heard Luis and stopped in his tracks. Turning around, he asked coldly, “Are you threatening me?”

“So what if I am?” Luis laughed diabolically. He had no qualms about confronting Dustin.

“I don’t know how you met this friend of yours, but if you think he can go up against me single- handedly, then you’re too naive for your own good.

“Do you really think you’re that powerful?” Dustin questioned him.

“Against you? Absolutely!” Luis grinned. “Not only you, but Dahlia and everyone around her will get a taste of our revenge! I’m going to make your lives a living hell!”

Dahlia found herself unsettled by his words. In the end, she couldn’t avoid the very thing she dreaded most. When she made the decision to elope with Dustin, she put her entire family in danger. That burden was overwhelming for her to bear.

“How about it? Are you scared now?” Luis was pleased with Dustin’s silence. “Rhys! If you don’t want to die like a chicken, get down on your knees immediately! Also, you’re going to send your woman to my bedside personally. Perhaps, then, I will let you live!”

He’d just finished speaking when a resounding slap landed on his cheek, and Dustin’s bright red handprint was clearly imprinted on his face.

“Huh?” Luis cradled his burning face, dazed. Everyone else looked on in shock. Dustin must have truly gone insane to actually strike Luis in public.

“You dare hit me?” Luis’ expression grew dark as he finally came back to his senses.

“So what if I did? That slap was for your shameless boasting!”

As he spoke, he raised his hand and landed another vicious slap on Luis’ face.

That was for your arrogance!”


“That was for threatening Dahlia!”


That was for being unrepentant!


Dustin slapped him left and right, with every earsplitting slap landing heavily on his face. The force turned his face bloody and swollen beyond recognition, and he lost a few teeth in between the slaps.

As the crowd took in Luis’ battered state, they were shocked into silence. They knew blood would be shed today. Nobody would survive when the Langfords sought revenge.

“Y-you … You’re dead meat!”

“Everyone related to you will pay as well!”

The members of the Langford family screamed one after another, their anger reaching a tipping point.

“Dahlia, leave this place with Maximus first. I’ll handle the rest,” Dustin said as he turned to look behind him.

“What are you going to do?” Dahlia’s brows knitted. She couldn’t explain the uneasiness she felt. At that moment, regret washed over her as she realized the gravity of her actions. Dustin wasn’t only taking her away from Luis; he was also challenging death head-on!

“Don’t worry. I’ll be fine.” He smiled. “Maximus, bring her away to somewhere safe.”

“Alright!” Maximus nodded. “Dahlia, please follow me. Dustin knows what he’s doing. He won’t be in any danger.”
