“Thank you for the reminder, Your Majesty. I’ve already made preparations. Even if the Dragon Guard does not come looking for me, I will seek them out,” Dustin said. “In short, I will not give up until the Dragon Guard is totally destroyed!”
“Your determination is commendable. I will support you fully and provide you with all the resources you may require, “Valon said seriously.
“Thank you, Your Majesty.” Dustin didn’t refuse his offer, only nodding in acknowledgment.
Regardless of the past, at least for now, both of them shared a common enemy and could work together temporarily. They would go their separate ways after everything was settled.
“Logan, I know you still have many questions. Just ask away, I will answer everything that I know of tonight,” Valon said.
“I do have a question that I’d like to ask, Your Majesty.”
Dustin appeared to have remembered something and asked, “Would you happen to know where Reston Rever is?
Although the Dragon Guard was destroyed, he still didn’t have the full truth of what happened that year. The Prince of Carsonne had mentioned that there was a traitor in West Lucozia- The General of the Central Cavalry, Reston Rever.
Reston excelled in both the literary and martial arts with outstanding military achievements and was also a close friend of Dustin’s father.
Dustin couldn’t understand why such a talented person would betray West Lucozia and work for the Dragon Guard. He needed a clear answer and reclaim justice from that year!
Valon’s pupils contracted, and he said meaningfully, “He’s not an easy person to deal with! He was the mastermind behind the assassination attempt incident back then.
“After that, he escaped by faking his death and assumed a new identity. He’s an extremely cunning man.”
“Does that mean you know where Reston is now, Your Majesty?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.
“I don’t know exactly where he is at the moment, but I’m aware of his identity after assuming a new persona,” Valon explained.
“Oh? What name does he go by now?” Dustin asked.
“Reston Rever now goes by Reagan Judd. The people refer to him as Mr. Judd,” Valon revealed.
“What? Reston is Mr. Judd?” Dustin’s expression hardened slightly. The revelation that the mysterious Mr. Judd was Reston’s alias deepened his sense of bewilderment.
Ten years ago, Reston, as Mr. Judd, saved the critically injured Cinna and visited him regularly. Why would he do that if he was a traitor? Had Reston used Cinna as bait to lure him out?
The alarming thing was that information on Cinna and his location was provided to him by his stepmother, Eloise. If this had been a trap, didn’t that mean Eloise was highly suspicious?
These thoughts left him deeply disturbed.
“Reston not only changed his name, but he also has another identity-the Dragon Guard’s Assistant Chief Guildmaster,” Valon said, dropping another bombshell.
“The Dragon Guard’s Assistant Chief Guildmaster?” Dustin’s brow furrowed even more.
“So, he betrayed West Lucozia and my father just for the position of Assistant Chief Guildmaster?”
“It’s not that simple.” Valon shook his head.
“To be precise, Reston was a Dragon Guard member from the very beginning. He had approached your father with ulterior motives. His betrayal back then had all been part of the Dragon Guard’s plan.”
“So, it turns out that Reston had been a mole the entire time. We trusted him wholeheartedly, but it turns out that everything had been a lie-friendship, loyalty, sworn brothers in life and death. It was all a joke!” Dustin’s expression darkened, and his eyes grew cold.
“Logan, I’ve already investigated today’s events. Even though the Dragon Guard has been destroyed with many key members dead or heavily injured, we didn’t find Reston’s body among them. It’s very likely that he is still alive,” Valon warned.
