Chapter 485

“What?” The rest of the guards froze at the sight of their buddy, who died with just a punch. They never

imagined Dustin would be so vicious. It was obvious that he didn’t have any respect for the Hills if he would

kill someone over a disagreement.

“How dare you!”

“The audacity!”

“You must be tired of living! To actually kill someone from the Hill family!”

After a momentary daze, the few remaining guards brandished their knives and yelled angrily at Dustin

Dustin stood calmly in place. His cold gaze scanning them left and right, he asked, “Did you guys also beat Mr. Robinson up?”

“What?” Their pupils constricted as they unconsciously took a few steps back. It felt like they had been

marked by predator. However, they soon realized the absurdity of it. They were at the Hill family residence!

What was there to be afraid of when they were only up against a single person

“You punk! If you don’t want to die, surrender immediately, or don’t blame us for being merciless!” The guard

on the left took two steps forward, his expression hostile.

A resounding bang rang out. With a kick, Dustin propelled him back into the wall. As blood sprayed out of his

mouth, his lifeless body collapsed onto the ground.

The guard on the right was bewildered. “You fucking-” He was about to attack when another kick left him

stuck on the wall. In the span of a few breaths, only one guard was left standing among the four of them.

“I–I’m warning you. Don’t try anything! I didn’t do anything. It’s none of my business!” Taking in the sight of his dead and crippled buddies, his face lost all color, and his legs trembled from the shock.

“I’ll give you a chance. Get Torben out here!” Dustin demanded coldly.

“Okay! Just wait!” The remaining guard didn’t hesitate and rushed inside immediately.

Not long after, nearly hundreds of people stormed out of the manor. “Who dared cause chaos in our residence?

Torben led the way in front with his head held high. Following closely behind him was their head of security

and a large group of elite guards.

“Young Mr. Hill, that’s the punk!” The guard who escaped earlier pointed at Dustin. “He not only spoke ill of

you, he even killed my good buddies just now!”

“What?” After taking a closer look, Torben let out an audible scoff. “So it’s you. What’s the matter? I heard you’re here to seek revenge.”

“Are you the one who beat up Mr. Robinson?‘ Dustin asked coldly.

“Mr. Robinson?” Torben raised an eyebrow and smiled teasingly. “Oh you mean that old thing? That’s right,

I’m the one who did it. What about it?”


“Why?” Dustin questioned.

“Why?” Torben let out a chuckle. “That’s new.”

He flashed Dustin a devious smile. “I have always acted without reason. It depends on my preferences. Simply speaking. I do whatever I want. Understand?”

“Yeah.” Dustin nodded. “Since you don’t seem to speak reason, I have nothing else to say to you. Today, I will make you a crippled man and drag you in front of Mr. Robinson for an apology.”

“Make me a crippled man?” While Torben was initially taken by surprise, he soon chortled in laughter. “Hey punk, you’re quite the wild person! Do you know you’re in the Hill family residence? This is an extremely dangerous place. What makes you think you can show off here shamelessly?”

With a calm demeanor, Dustin responded, “My two fists right here.” 

“Bravo, bravo!” Torben grinned. “Since you don’t seem to value your life, you can’t blame me for what I’m about to do. Kill him!”

“Charge!” After receiving the order, the hundreds of elite guards brandished their knives. They charged at Dustin at the same time with the overwhelming urge to kill.

Dustin didn’t back down and walked forward with a stoic expression, every step leaving a deep imprint on the ground.
