Chapter 449

Not long after he spat out the dark blood, Hector came around. Although his body was weak, it was a miracle

that he’d made it.

As for Peter, when he saw Hector regain consciousness, he admitted defeat and apologized to Dustin sincerely. He said that he’d been foolish to underestimate the power of traditional medicine and that he’d resign from his position after returning to his country to start learning traditional medicine instead.

Dustin decided to let the man be. After all, Peter may be a proud man, but he sincerely respected those who were stronger than him.

The rest of the Harmon family also resumed their activities after making sure that Hector was fine. Quentin,

however, made sure to glare at Dustin on his way out.

“How are you feeling. Dad? Are you in pain anywhere?” Ruth walked over to the bed, holding a glass of warm

water.

I’m fine. I just feel slightly bloated.” Hector took two sips.

“Duh. Look at the blood you threw up. It’s full of maggots!” Ruth told him, shaken.

“Huh?” Hector looked down and frowned. “What’s this?”

“Dustin said you were poisoned by mystic poison. If it weren’t for him, you’d still be unconscious right now.”

Ruth explained.

“Dustin?” Hector glanced around before noticing Dustin standing beside him, his expression turning troubled.”

I didn’t expect you to save me.”

“It’s still too early to celebrate. Although I’ve gotten rid of the venomous curse, you aren’t in the clear yet.”

Dustin told them bluntly.

“What do you mean?” Hector frowned.

“Mystic poison is a combination of witchcraft and parasitic poison. The parasitic poison has been cleared, but

the witchcraft issue remains.” Dustin explained.

“Then what should we do?” Hector asked.

“Simple. I just need to treat you once per day for the next five days, and you’ll recover,” Dustin said.

“I see.” Hector nodded and asked, “How much will each treatment cost?”

“I don’t want money. I just need you to promise me something.” Dustin bargained.

“What is it?”

“I hope you can annul the engagement between the Harmon family and the Grant family.” Dustin’s reply was astonishing.

“Annul the engagement?” Hector frowned. “Never!”

“To tell you the truth, Mr. Harmon, I’m the only one who can save your life. I think trading that marriage for your

life is good deal,” Dustin said with a small smile.

“Are you threatening me?” Hector narrowed his eyes.

“I wouldn’t dare. I’m merely making a request.”

“My answer won’t change. Never!” Hector’s attitude was firm. “I can tell you that it doesn’t matter if you treat me. The marriage will still commence.”

“Aren’t you scared of dying?” Dustin frowned.

“What’s there to fear? Everyone has to die eventually. The only thing different is the timing.” Hector answered calmly.

“I guess you are different. No one would think about death so calmly.” Dustin sighed. He had his doubts when he heard what Ruth said earlier, but after speaking with Hector, he was now sure that the older man was not afraid of death at all

Stubborn men like Hector were always the hardest to deal with.

“It’s pointless to butter up to me now. Tell me how much money you want for saving me today, and forget about everything else.” Hector stated icily.

“You don’t have to pay me. I did what I needed to. I just want to see Natasha.” Dustin gave in.

“Why do you want to see her? You should know that there’s no future for you two!” Hector warned.

“Even if there isn’t, there’s nothing wrong with meeting friend, right? Besides, Mrs. Harmon already agreed to this earlier.” Dustin replied.
