Chapter 699

“You dickhead! I don’t think you realize the gravity of the situation!” Nelson was furious and was about to smack Hank again when Dustin stopped him.

“You mean the Nicholsons were involved in this?”

“Why, are you finally scared?” Hank sneered. “That’s more like it. You’ll be offending the Nicholsons if you offend me. Now, get out of here!”

“I’m giving you one last chance. Confess and surrender yourself to the authorities, and I’ll let you go.” Dustin’s expression was cold.

“What a load of crap!” Hank glared at Dustin. “Don’t think I’m afraid of you just because you’re the leader of the Flame Dragon Gang! Your small gang is nothing compared to the aristocratic Nicholsons! They could exterminate you in seconds”

“It seems like you won’t talk without a lesson. Slice his hand off!” Dustin cut through the nonsense.

“Yes, sir!” Nelson smirked. He ordered two of their henchmen to pin Hank to the table.

“Wait! I’m warning you, don’t you dare touch me! The Nicholsons will not let you get away with it if you do!” Hank panicked and struggled desperately.

“Go on, don’t stop! Let’s see how long you can keep up this act!” Nelson raised his knife and ruthlessly brought it down on Hank’s wrist.

“Ah-!” Blood splattered everywhere as Hank’s blood-curdling scream echoed throughout the room.

“Y-you!” Hank’s expression twisted in agony as he groaned. He couldn’t believe they had hurt him. Weren’t they afraid of the Nicholsons’ wrath?

“Still not going to talk? Slice off his other hand,” Dustin ordered again.

“Yes, sir!” Without another word, Nelson raised his knife once more.

“Mr. Niles, save me!” Hank screamed in fear.

“Stop right there!” At that moment, Niles, who had been silent the entire time, finally stood up.

“Who are you? I’m warning you to mind your own business!” Nelson’s expression was hostile.

“Hmm?” Niles’ expression darkened. “Do you know who I am? How dare you talk to me like that?

You must not want to live!”

“I don’t fucking care who you are!” Nelson was getting impatient.

“The audacity! He’s a prominent figure from Stonia-The Killian family’s butler!” Hank cried out.

“The Killians?” Nelson could feel his eyes twitch, and his earlier arrogance disappeared instantly.

The Killians were one of Stonia’s prestigious aristocratic families. As a family with a history spanning over a hundred years, they wielded immense power. Even the Tremendous Three of Millsburg were inferior to the Killians. After all, Stonia was the capital city. Any random, minor aristocratic family from Stonia was already leagues above any family in Millsburg, let alone an influential one like the Killians.

“Hah! Why did you go silent? Where’s all that arrogance now? I dare you to try anything with the Killian family’s butler here!” Hank’s expression twisted into a hideous sneer. He knew that few would dare to provoke the Killians.

This is between us and Hank. It’s best if the Killians stay out of it,” Dustin responded calmly.

“Hey, kid, are you lecturing me?” Niles took his time lighting a cigar before taking two deep puffs. With an air of arrogance, he declared, “You seem oblivious to my status. Listen up; I’m not going to repeat myself. I am the Killian family’s butler. You ants will always remain beneath me, as I hold the power to play with your lives! I can have all of you killed with just one word! Now, I order you to immediately-”

Before Niles could finish his sentence, a thunderous noise similar to an explosion rang out. He had been sent flying, crashing heavily into a wall. His bones shattered as he spewed blood, and he was rendered unconscious on the spot.

I don’t understand what you mean.” Hank acted clueless.

“You ordered James to be killed, didn’t you?” Dustin asked out of the blue.

“James?” Hank shook his head. “I’m sorry, I don’t know who that is. There must have been a misunderstanding.”

“A misunderstanding?” With a frosty smile, Nelson gestured. “Bring him in!” On his orders, a man covered in injuries was forcefully brought in Hank’s expression shifted at the sight of the man. He finally realized something was up. These people had come prepared.

“Hank Hoffman, do you know this man?” Dustin asked calmly.

“No, I don’t. Who is he?” Hank remained unyielding.

“You son of a bitch!” Nelson raised his hand, delivering a forceful slap that sent Hank sprawling to the ground. Nelson berated. “You’re still trying to argue at this point? This man confessed to everything, and you were the one who hired him!”

“Nonsense! I don’t know any murderers! Stop making false accusations!” Hank shouted in fury,” I’m warning you. I have the matriarch of the Glenstead Nicholsons backing me!”
