Chapter 492

“It was Torben from the Hill family.” Dustin spat out the words casually.

“Torben Hill?” Instantly, Mike felt like he was struck by lightning at the revelation and turned pale. The rest of them also had a look of horror on their faces, as if they had seen a ghost.

Torben Hill was the infamous vile demon of Millsburg, a scion of an affluent family standing at the pinnacle of power! He was known to be arrogant and tyrannical, committing all sorts of atrocities. However, with his powerful background, nobody dared provoke him. To them, an influential figure like Torben had the power to do whatever he wanted with them. Even if they were to encounter him on the street, they wouldn’t dare look up, not to mention provoke him.

“Y–you must be joking. Torben is the perpetrator?” After he fully digested the fact, his voice started trembling.

Dustin had a stoic expression. “What? It seems like you’re terrified.”

“T–terrified? No way!” Mike calmed himself down and rebuked stubbornly, “I grew up not knowing what terrified means. It’s just Torben Hill. I better not see him on the streets; otherwise, I’ll definitely give him two slaps to the face!”

With so many ladies watching, he couldn’t afford to show any weaknesses. It didn’t cost anything to put on an act anyway. He would think about the consequences afterward.

“Really? I guess you’re truly amazing.” Dustin only found it hilarious. He could clearly see him breaking out in a cold sweat, yet he was still being obstinate.

“Hmph! It’s not just all talk. Even an imprudent brat like Torben would need to address me formally!” Mike pointed his thumb at himself.

“You talk big for your age.” Suddenly, they heard a booming voice resonating from the door. Following closely behind, a group of Hill family members strode in. Leading the group was none other than Spring Hill, with Autumn and Patrick behind him. Even the injured Torben was carried in.

“Who was that? Who’s talking?” Mike was irritated and turned around, his expression clearly displaying his annoyance. He was in the midst of showing off! Who was so rude to interrupt him?

“What?” Before he turned around, he still had an arrogant look on his face. Once he noticed that the people who walked in were the backbones of the Hill family, he froze on the spot, clearly astonished.

He didn’t recognize all of them, but there were a few familiar faces he had the privilege of meeting during upscale social gatherings. However, their once majestic presence appeared quite ordinary as they stood with more prominent members of the Hill family.

“Were you the one who spoke earlier?” Patrick gave him a once over and smiled.

“Let me introduce myself. I’m Patrick Hill. I heard you mention you would slap Torben if you met him, and I couldn’t agree more. He’s right here. Please go ahead and don’t hold back.” Patrick gestured with one hand as if inviting him to go ahead.

“What?” Mike was shocked as he remained rooted in place, completely at a loss. He was just putting on an act. Who would’ve thought he would encounter the actual person himself!
