An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1145
Even the major official institutions would have to treat Dustin with utmost respect. Dustin was young, and he displayed formidable strength. It wasn’t an exaggeration to say he could easily stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Christopher in the future.
A young prodigy like him was someone to be admired and looked up to for a lifetime. The biggest issue was that Evan, Vivian, and their group had treated Dustin with disdain and contempt. They had even resorted to offensive language.
If Dustin ever chose to retaliate, the consequences would be unimaginable. The thought sent shivers down their spines.
They regretted having offended Dustin and how foolish they acted. They had underestimated him, causing them to miss out on a valuable talent.
If they had established a good relationship with Dustin, they could have effortlessly risen to greater heights.
“Impressive, kid. You hid your true abilities so well that even I didn’t notice,” Christopher remarked. He exhaled a long sigh of relief.
The Murray family had significant resources. However, it was still a struggle to defend against the relentless attacks. Fortunately, Dustin had intervened and reversed the situation. Otherwise, the mansion might have witnessed more bloodshed.
“He did it… Dustin won! We don’t need to escape anymore!” Sheila cheered with tears of joy. Caden displayed a mix of emotions. He couldn’t decide whether to be happy or worried. Their survival in this dire situation was undoubtedly a cause for celebration.
Even so, Dustin showed outstanding performance and incredible skills. It made him unsure about how to approach the situation. Their past conflicts didn’t help, either.
“Kill every last one of the Kimbokuans! Kill them all!”
After defeating Antonio, Dustin took no time to rest. With a swing of the Celestial Blade, he led the Murray forces in wiping out the rest of the Kimbokuan assassins.
With Antonio gone, the assassins found themselves with no means of resistance. Within moments, they were defeated. The elaborate scheme that took five years to plan ultimately ended in a disastrous victory for the Murrays.
They had eliminated the invaders, but they had also suffered substantial losses. They sacrificed a significant portion of their elite forces. At the same time, they also implicated many innocent guests in the chaos.
These guests were people with connections to the Murrays. They spanned various professions and fields. With such significant losses, it would take them at least three to five years to fully recover. The only thing worth celebrating was that Christopher survived.
As long as Christopher was alive, the Murrays would never fall. It would only take time for them to regain their former glory.
After the battle ended, Millsburg’s official authorities gradually arrived. A large number of soldiers rushed in to escort the guests and secure the Murray residence, clearing the battlefield. It was only then that everyone’s anxious hearts found some relief.
“Kid, I owe you a great favor this time. Without you, I might not have made it out alive.” Christopher approached Dustin and expressed his gratitude.
“It was nothing, General Murray,” Dustin replied with a smile, not wanting to take too much credit. He had owed Christopher a favor due to the Cherusia. Today, he finally returned the favor.
“Who would have known? I didn’t expect you to be so talented. You are comparable to your mother back then.” Christopher looked grateful.
“Thank you for the compliment.” Dustin smiled and took out a tablet. “I refined this Tigaruis. It’s extremely effective against internal injuries. You should try it.”
“Oh, really?” Christopher was curious. After a close inspection, he swallowed the tablet whole. Very soon, he expressed his amazement and praised, “This is indeed a miraculous panacea. My congested energy is flowing smoothly now. It’s amazing!”
“I can’t believe you’re not only skilled in martial arts but also mastered alchemy. You are truly a talent in both the literary and martial arts!
“If only a talented, handsome young man like you could become my grandson-in-law. That would be wonderful.”
Upon hearing that, Sheila, who had just approached them, blushed instantly.
