Chapter 1067: Good News and Bad News

During lunchtime, Dustin and Scarlet Spanner found a window-side table at the Rose Restaurant. They sat down to eat and chat.

“Logan, do you want me to kill those who have offended you?” Out of the blue, Scarlet Spanner asked with a serious tone while eating.

Dustin couldn’t help but laugh at her question. “They don’t deserve to die. Just detain them for a few days and let them suffer a bit.”

While Dylan deserved to die for crossing certain lines, the other members of the Harmon family, though guilty, didn’t warrant such a severe punishment. Moreover, Dustin had to consider the feelings of Natasha. These people were, after all, her relatives.

“Alright, I’ll spare their lives then,” Scarlet Spanner nodded.

To her, if killing a few people could make Dustin happy, it was a small price to pay.

“Logan, I remember your birthday is in a few days, right?” Scarlet Spanner suddenly brought up.

“Yeah, I almost forgot about it if you hadn’t mentioned it,” Dustin realized. He didn’t really care about birthdays. In previous years, he would just have a meal, maybe some drinks, and occasionally get a birthday cake, nothing extravagant.

“Logan, how do you plan to celebrate your birthday this time?” Scarlet Spanner was curious.

“Most likely just a meal and a birthday cake, as usual,” Dustin replied indifferently.

“Is that it? No way!” Scarlet Spanner objected. “Your birthday has to be grand. This time, I want to throw a big birthday party for you!”

“You don’t need to go to such trouble. I prefer to keep it low-key,” Dustin declined.

“No trouble at all. In the past, you always had lively celebrations for your birthday, and this time should be no different,” Scarlet Spanner insisted.

“Past is past, and now is now. There’s no need for anything extravagant,” Dustin shook his head. “My dear, I appreciate your kind intentions, but let’s skip the big birthday party.”

“Alright, if you insist,” Scarlet Spanner agreed, not wanting to push him too hard. “But I’ll invite some friends over to celebrate with you. Is that okay?”

“That’s fine,” Dustin smiled and nodded.

“Great, it’s settled then,” Scarlet beamed with joy.

They continued to enjoy their meal and conversation, creating a harmonious atmosphere.

However, during their lunch, Dustin received a call from Samuel Franklin, who had both good and bad news to share.

“Mr Rhys, I have both good news and bad news. Which one would you like to hear first?” Samuel Franklin inquired.

“Start with the bad news,” Dustin replied.

“The bad news is that someone posted a bounty on you yesterday, and the reward is as high as 10 billion,” Samuel Franklin revealed.

“Who is it?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.

The last time there was a bounty on him, it was from Edwin Hummer. It was only after Dustin killed Edwin Hummer that the bounty was lifted.

“Mr Rhys, you know our rules. I can’t disclose the identity of the employer. I can only assure you that my people won’t take action,” Samuel Franklin quickly distanced himself from any involvement.

“Alright, tell me the good news,” Dustin changed the subject.

“The good news is that we’ve located the Cherusia that you’ve been searching for!”
