“Young man, we will need your help again,” Spring said.
“Treating your father and saving his life is not a problem, but I hope you Hills can uphold your promise and pay me the full amount of money instead of resorting to coercion, intimidation, and taking advantage of your position,” Dustin said calmly.
“Coercion, intimidation, taking advantage of our position? What are you talking about, young man?” Spring was puzzled.
“Perhaps you should ask the two people next to you what they have done,” Dustin hinted.
“Autumn, what’s going on?” Spring frowned.
“Well…” Autumn hesitated to speak. He couldn’t openly bring up such embezzlement of funds.
“Uncle Spring, I know what’s going on. Uncle Autumn and the others took it upon themselves to change. Dustin’s 300 million remunerations into three million without permission and even went so far as to threaten him!” Patrick said seriously.
“Autumn! Have you lost your mind?” Spring’s face darkened. “Dustin saved our father’s life. He is the Hill family’s benefactor. How can you treat him like this? Who gave you the audacity? Do you think our father’s life is only worth a mere three million?!”
“Spring. I just feel that this kid doesn’t deserve so much money.” Autumn muttered.
“Nonsense!” Spring glared at Autumn. “Dustin has the skills. Why doesn’t he deserve the money? You’ve made a mistake yet show no signs of remorse. Immediately go to the shrine and kneel! Reflect on yoursell!”
Autumn was about to say something, but Spring angrily interrupted him. Left with no choice, he could only
obediently kneel at the shrine.
“And you!” Spring glared at Torben.
The man shrank his neck and dared not defy him. Before leaving, Torben cast a resentful look at Dustin.
“Dustin, I apologize sincerely. I failed to teach them their manners. Please forgive me.” Spring said, looking.
“It’s alright, as long as I get the money.” Dustin waved his hand. After all, he didn’t suffer any losses, and it
wasn’t a big deal.
“Patrick, go and personally withdraw the money for Dustin. Make sure you don’t make any mistakes, Spring instructed.
“No problem.” Patrick nodded and quickly left.
In no time, a 380 million check was handed over to Dustin.
“Dustin, we owe you a great debt today.” Spring took out a silver waist token and presented it with both hands. “This is the Hill family’s guest token. With this, you will be an esteemed guest of the Hill family. Not only can you freely enter all the places of the Hill family, but if you encounter any trouble, you can also seek help from the Hill family through this token.”
“Dustin, you have to accept it. The token is a precious item. You can solve many problems with it,” Patrick said eagerly.
The guest token of the Hill family was something countless people dreamed of possessing. It meant having the support of the Hill family, almost allowing one to act recklessly within the boundaries of the entire South City.
“Well, since it’s a precious item, I’ll take it.” Dustin smiled and directly put it away.
As one of the Tremendous Three, the Hill family had tremendous influence in the seven provinces of Balerno. Dustin might need the Hill family’s help if he encountered any problems.
“If there’s nothing else, I will take my leave.” Dustin didn’t intend to stay any longer.
“Patrick, help me see Dustin off,” Spring said with a smile.
“Dustin, this way, please.” Patrick gestured with one hand, quickly leading Dustin away.
As Spring watched the two figures depart, his smile gradually faded and was replaced by a cold expression.
“He’s good in both medicine and martial arts. Not bad. He accidentally disrupted my plans. As he spoke, he flipped his palm, revealing a silver needle.
It was the same needle that was extracted from Paul’s body!
