Eleanor and the others left, and the tension within the Camron family finally began to ease. Matteo and the rest observed Scarlet, who maintained an impassive expression, feeling uneasy. While they were grateful for Scarlet’s intervention, they couldn’t quite fathom why she chose to help.
In the eyes of the Camron family, who felt like mere ants compared to the towering giants of the Spanner family, they couldn’t fathom why anyone would be concerned about them.
Then, Scarlet offered a straightforward explanation. “Don’t overthink it. I helped you all because of Dustin.”
“Dustin?” The Camron family’s attention shifted to Dustin, their faces reflecting surprise and suspicion. Initially, Dustin was perceived as having no influence or background, merely a bold martial artist. But now, it seemed there was more to Dustin than they thought.
If someone like Scarlet was willing to help him, then perhaps he wasn’t as insignificant as they had presumed. In the face of everyone’s surprise and skepticism, Dustin remained silent. He picked up Scott’s head and placed it beneath Lana’s photo.
He whispered, “Lana, your death has been avenged, and those involved will pay the price. Also, I’ll protect your family so they won’t suffer. Please, rest in peace.”
In his heart, he silently said, “Lana, you’re one of the few friends I have. I’ll remember you forever.”
After the somber moment, Dustin shifted his focus and looked at Matteo.
“Mr. Camron, you might doubt my abilities, but I’ll do my best to make amends and eliminate any threats to the Camron family.
“Scott’s death is just the beginning. Anyone against the Camron family or with ill intentions will pay the price. Take care, and I’ll take my leave.”
Dustin nodded respectfully. Accompanied by Scarlet, he hopped onto the helicopter, which took off from the manor. The helicopter fleet gradually vanished into the distance.
Meanwhile, the Camron family exchanged puzzled glances. No one expected this outcome. Eleanor and Elena had arrived with threats and coercion to pressure the Camron family into surrendering the Dew Balm formula.
Unexpectedly, Dustin intervened, reprimanding the two women and avenging Lana’s death. Then, reinforcements from the Moseys arrived. Just when disaster loomed, Dustin called the Scarlet Warrior to the scene.
Everything unfolded so unexpectedly, leaving the Camrons’ emotions in a whirlwind. In the end, they came out unharmed and found protection from the Spanner family. It was truly a case of turning a crisis into an opportunity.
The person who made it happen was someone they had underestimated all along-Dustin.
“Lana, you were right about Dustin. He’s a responsible and capable man. Unfortunately, you can’t be together anymore,” Matteo said. His gaze fixed on Lana’s photo, and tears welled up in his eyes.
Despite the Camron family overcoming the crisis, Lana would never open her eyes again.
Silently, Dustin sat on the helicopter, gazing at the shrinking buildings below. His expression was somewhat melancholic.
“Logan, what’s our next move?” Scarlet asked tentatively.
She had rushed over without a second thought upon receiving his message. Whenever he needed help, she was always ready to lend a hand without needing any explanation.
“Scott’s death poses a problem. I shouldn’t reveal my identity for now, and I need you to help settle matters at the Moseys.” Dustin finally averted his gaze.
