Chapter 489

Three resounding tolls of bells echoed throughout the Hill family residence. This prompted a large number of key family members to swiftly gather at the meeting hall. The Hill family had a clear rule that if warning bells were sounded, it meant a major incident had occurred within the family.

No matter where they were or what they were up to, they were required to head immediately to the meeting


“Autumn, what the hell are you doing? Who permitted you to ring the bell?” Spring had arrived with a few of his aides and strode into the meeting hall. He noticed that most of the key family members were already gathered.

The family members were drawn to the meeting hall by the sound of the bell, not yet knowing what had transpired. Since the Hill family residence was enormous, surrounding an entire mountain, those residing behind the mountains didn’t hear the commotion at the front gates.

Autumn’s expression was gloomy. “Spring! Someone had gone on a killing rampage at our residence. If I hadn’t rung the bell our family’s legacy would soon be reduced to ruins!”

“Oh? Who has such courage to start trouble with our family?” Spring was instantly agitated.

“It’s that Dustin kid!” Autumn gritted his teeth. “That kid is audacious and arrogant. He openly disrespects our family just because he thinks he’s got some skills. He not only injured two to three hundred of our elite members, but he also crippled my son!”

“Dustin? How could it be him?” Spring furrowed his brows, slightly surprised. “Are you sure you didn’t get the

wrong person?”

“How would I get the wrong person? Even if that kid was burned to ashes. I would still recognize him!” Autumn’s expression was one of pure resentment.

“Everything must have a reason. Why would he do such a thing?” Spring questioned.

“No reason could ever justify his heinous acts!” Autumn insisted indignantly.

*Spring, just look at my son. Look at how badly he was beaten up!” He waved his hand, and soon, Torben was carried in carefully on a stretcher. He was covered in blood and had severed limbs, and his face was contorted

in pain as he wailed incessantly.

The horrifying sight caused an uproar among the family members. Torben was a direct descendant of the family. He was also someone the family nurtured with great care. Naturally, witnessing him reduced to such a battered state caused significant commotion.

“Dustin has gone too far! We must make him pay for his actions!”

“That’s right! We must capture him so that it can serve as a warning to others!”

Everyone present spoke fervently with righteous indignation.

“Everyone, please quiet down. I have something to say.” At that moment, Patrick walked up and said calmly.” Uncle Spring, after investigating, I found that Torben was the one who started this fiasco.”

Spring raised his eyebrows. “Oh? Why?”

“Dustin had asked someone to deliver a bottle of medicinal wine today to treat Grandpa’s illness. However, things were intentionally made difficult for the person at the front gates. Not only did Torben smash the bottle, he almost killed him. That was why Dustin came to take revenge.” Patrick explained the situation in detail.

“What?! Is that true, Autumn?” Spring turned his attention to Autumn.

“So what? He’s just a servant. What’s the big deal about beating him up? Is he worth being compared to my son?” Autumn confidently justified his actions.

“A servant is indeed not worth mentioning. But what about Grandpa’s medicinal wine?” Patrick rebuked him,” Torben is taking Grandpa’s health as a joke. Don’t you think that is disgraceful behavior?”

“You cut the crap!” Autumn’s expression shifted slightly. “Who knows if the medicinal wine was poisoned? My son might have stopped him because he had a good eye and realized the wine was tampered with!”

“That is just your one–sided opinion,” Patrick said impassively.

“Shut up!” Autumn glared at him. “Are you suspecting me? How dare you point fingers at someone with a

higher standing than yours?” Since he couldn’t argue against him, Autumn pulled rank. But that made him

more suspicious.

“Enough! Stop arguing!” Spring slammed his hand on the table to stop their dispute. “Autumn, I will investigate

this matter thoroughly. Go and get Torben treated.”

“Investigate what? My son has been battered to such a state! No matter what, I will get my revenge!” Autumn

spat out in anger.

‘That’s right! It doesn’t matter why. The Hill family will not be bullied!”
