Julian glared at the masked men, displeased with them. In public, everyone always addressed him as Mr. Nicholson. The audacity of these masked men to address him familiarly by his first name!
“So, you’re Julian Nicholson.” After the masked man confirmed his target, his gaze turned
The next thing they knew, the masked man lunged at Julian with a knife.
The sharp blade sliced into Julian’s abdomen, leaving Julian in shock. His eyes widened in disbelief.
What on earth was going on? The masked man must be out of his mind to attack him without a word!
“Ah-!” Julian screamed in pain. He staggered back, clutching his wound.
He was terrified. “W–who are you?”
“Your executioner!” The masked men approached Julian murderously.
“I’ve done nothing to offend you. Why do you want to kill me?” Julian broke out in cold sweat as panic overtook him..
“I was paid to kill you. It serves you right for offending Mr. Huffner!” The leader of the masked men thundered.
“I don’t know any Preston Huffner. You must be mistaken.” Julian was taken aback.
“Hmph! Are you still pretending? Mr. Huffner is from Asclepia. You disfigured him outside of Stoneray Valley not long ago. Have you forgotten already?” The leader of the masked men had a cold gaze.
“I don’t know who Preston Huffner is. You must have gotten the wrong person!”
Jullian was close to tears. Where did these crazy people come from? Why were they trying to kill him without getting the situation straight?
“Cut the crap! You must die today for offending Mr. Huffner!” The masked men sneered and lunged at Julian.
“Hold it right there!” One of the haughty women stood in front of him and blocked his
She protested. “You bastards! Do you know who Mr. Nicholson is? Do you know his. background? If you dare t-!”
Before she could finish, the masked man had slashed her to death. Blood sprayed across the table.
It was a shocking sight.
“Ah!” The other women screamed in fear, distancing themselves from Julian. They were afraid of getting caught in the attack.
“Kill him!” The masked men brandished their knives and started slashing at Julian.
“I don’t know who Preston Huffner is. I didn’t disfigure him. You guys are attacking the wrong person!”
Julian cowered and wailed as they continued slashing him. Very soon, he was covered in bloody cuts.
Despite his pleas for mercy and explanations, the masked men attacked relentlessly.
“Preston Huffner?” Dustin raised an eyebrow, a playful smile on his lips.
He had casually mentioned Julian’s name when he attacked Preston previously. He didn’t expect it to cause the situation before him to happen.
“Save me!” Suddenly, Julian, who was covered in blood, rushed toward Dustin.
He begged by Dustin’s feet. “Please, save me!”
“Save you? Since when were we friends?” Dustin smiled cheekily.
“If you save me, I’ll give you the Jade Maiden Scripture!” Julian spat out blood, then handed over the wooden box to Dustin.
He knew Dustin was good at fighting. Only Dustin could save him now.
“Alright. Since you’ve shown sincerity, I’ll save you this once.” Dustin nodded, receiving the
“That’s great!” Julian lit up in joy.
He then pointed at the masked men. “Kill them!”
“Don’t misunderstand. I only said I’d save you. I never said I would kill for you.” Dustin
“What? What do you mean by that?” Julian was dumbfounded.
“Mr. Adler, call Mr. Nicholson an ambulance immediately,” Dustin instructed.
“An ambulance? You fuck-” Julian was infuriated and was about to erupt in rage when the masked men lunged at him, killing him instantly.
