I’m the Boss
Meanwhile, back at Full Moon, Joel flying away had everyone looking dumbstruck.
Joel was a senior in the Zen Order. He was also a strong fighter on the Heavenly Immortals. Someone like him could split rocks open with just a palm of his hand.
Under normal circumstances, Dustin would have been seriously injured or even killed by his attack. However, the situation was reversed instead.
What exactly happened?
“Dustin, are you alright?” Scarlet rushed forward after a momentary daze. She took a good look at him.
“I told you, that childish brat can’t hurt me. There was no need to worry.” Dustin smiled.
“You scared me. I thought…” Scarlet didn’t continue. She seemed afraid of offending him.
Georgia stared at him in disbelief. “How are you so strong?”
She was aware of Joel’s skills. She and Bridget weren’t his match. If Scarlet didn’t get involved, they wouldn’t have been able to take him down.
They were certain that Dustin was as good as dead earlier. They didn’t expect such a reversal. “Nonsense! Of course, Dustin is amazing. He used to be the genius of Oakvale!”
Scarlet was proud. Ten years ago, Logan was unbeatable among his peers.
“Madam Scarlet, you said so yourself. That was ten years ago. Things have changed since then, Georgia said thoughtfully.
Logan was indeed the Chosen One back then. However, that was when he had access to the Rhys family’s power and resources.
After ten years, the top talents from Oakvale have become influential leaders. They’ve grown into strong and respected figures.
Logan, on the other hand, had disappeared and lost the shelter of the Rhys family.
In the eyes of many, Logan had faded into insignificance, turning him into an ordinary citizen.
“I don’t care what other people think of him. In my eyes, Dustin will forever be a genius,” Scarlet said seriously.
“If you really thought that way, you wouldn’t have been so anxious earlier,” Georgia said quietly.
“What did you say?” Scarlet stared at her coldly. “You’re so full of energy. I’m giving you extra training tomorrow.”
“What?” Georgia froze, mournful about her situation.
On the other hand, Bridget stifled a laugh, playfully happy about Georgia’s trouble.
At that moment, Dustin’s phone rang.
“Dustin, I’m not interrupting anything, am I?” Paul was on the other end of the line.
“Of course not. Is there a problem, Sir Paul?” Dustin asked.
“Do you remember the Knighthood Society tournament I told you about last time? Tomorrow is the official registration day,” Paul went straight to the point.
“Already?” Dustin was surprised.
“After registration, you need to go through a series of assessments. They will choose the final five representatives from the assessment. With your skills, you’ll do great for sure. Just be a little serious about it,” Paul said, smiling.
“Where will the assessment be held?” Dustin asked.
“There’s a branch of the martial arts alliance in Millsburg. It’s held there. I’ll arrange for Patrick to assist you.”
“Alright, I’ll be there on time.” After another short exchange, Dustin hung up.
They had an agreement. If Dustin won the top spot in the Knighthood Society tournament, he’d get information on Cherusia. Not to mention the generous reward.
He had all the herbs required to concoct Longevitium ready. All he needed left was the Cherusia.
As long as he got his hands on it, Gregory could be saved.
“Dustin, where are you going tomorrow?” Scarlet asked.
“Oh, for some reason, I need to join the Knighthood Society tournament. It’s organized by the Glenstead and Balerno martial arts alliance,” Dustin said. He didn’t hide anything.
He added, “Tomorrow is the registration and assessment day.”
Scarlet’s eyes lit up after hearing him. “Dustin, can I come with you
