Chapter 396

The Nicholsons stared at the three gold–tier assassins before shirting their gazes at the

expressionless Dustin with great alarm. No one had anticipated Dustin to be so powerful. If they had not witnessed the scene with their eyes, they would have laughed at the idea of a good–for- nothing person being talented in martial arts.

“Is there something wrong with my eyes? When did the trash become a hero?” James widened his eyes in disbelief. His impression of Dustin was that he was a kept man who only learned a few useless martial arts tricks that were no match for the top assassins. However, Dustin’s

performance shattered James‘ preconception. He was shocked to learn that his ex–brother–in–law was a martial arts expert.

“Heavens! Is that really Dustin?” Florence was equally astonished. Even though she was clueless about the gold–tier assassins from the Bounty League, she was aware of the capabilities of Tarragon and Cougar. Logically, Dustin beat Hillcrest in terms of expertise, which would place him levels above Tarragon and Cougar.

“What the f*ck? Was that really their useless live–in son–in–law?” Dakota rubbed her eyes to make sure that she was seeing it right. Were the three gold–tier assassins from the Bounty League taken down? Did that happen due to Dustin’s prowess, or had the assassins been enjoying an undeserved


“He’s a tough nut to crack. We need to get him out of the way soon.” After the shock, Gloria started plotting against Dustin. It was impossible to beat Dustin through a martial arts battle, and the only method left was to threaten him with her authority. She believed that Dustin wouldn’t dare to go against the Nicholson Family despite his outstanding martial arts skills.

At the same time, Dahlia was staring at the familiar face with surprise. She was not aware of Dustin’s skills during their three–year marriage. His secret was indeed well hidden.

“Edwin Hummer, the assassins you hired didn’t seem up for their jobs. I’m afraid you will walk away disappointed today.” Dustin looked up slowly with an amused twinkle in his eyes.

“Y–you hid your skills from us!” Edwin appeared grim. He had thought that getting revenge was easy with the help of three gold–tier assassins, only to learn that he had vastly underestimated


“Hid my skills?” Dustin smiled. “I have never attempted to do so. People like you do not require me to use my full strength yet.”

“I admit that I have underestimated you. But don’t be too glad about it! I’m still in the game,” Edwin warned in a somber tone.

“Oh, why? Do you still believe that you can get out of this?” Dustin questioned him.

“Even if I can’t, I will take everyone here with me!” While speaking, Edwin suddenly tore his shirt apart to reveal the bombs that were strapped underneath.

He cackled and said, “See this? Before I arrived, I made up my mind to die with everyone here. The number of bombs on me is enough to turn the villa into ashes!”

Everyone at the scene looked terrified and listless upon hearing the remark, Edwin Hummer was


a crazy one indeed!

“How? Dustin Rhys? Are you afraid now?” Edwin laughed loudly. “It doesn’t matter if you are

skilled. You cannot survive a bombing.”

“What do you want?” Dustin went forward and shielded Dahlia.
