Chapter 235 Jane’s Future
No one spoke on the other end of the line.
Time passed bit by bit. Mr. and Mrs. Smilth felt like a blunt knife was rubbing against their hearts, which made them so frightened and nervous.
After a long time, Rachel suddenly asked, “How much Jane’s future is worth. in your eyes?”
Upon hearing this, Mr. Smith and Mrs. Smith secretly heaved a sigh of relief.
There was even a faint smile on their faces.
“Tell me whatever you want. But it’s inconvenient to talk about it over the phone. I wonder if we can meet.” Mr. Smith continued to probe Rachel’s
Even though things had come to this point, they still clutched to a scrap of hope that Rachel would let it go for the old time’s sake.
Rachel knew the Smith family very well.
She could even imagine how those people would pile on the moral pressure.
“Since it’s inconvenient for you, there’s no need for us to continue chatting.”
“Wait! Don’t hang up!” Mr. Smith was afraid that Rachel would disconnect the call, so he hurriedly said, “Here’s the thing. Miss Grey, we prepared 2 million dollars for you. Can you withdraw the lawsuit?”
Actually, they had not prepared the money at all.
Mr. Smith said so because he wanted to test Rachel’s appetite and to stall
“Mr. Smith, do you think I’ll be interested in this tip of money?” Rachel said, “Keep it and hire a good lawyer for Miss Smith.”
With that, she was about to hang up.
Mr. Smith’s anxious voice came from the phone, “Miss Grey, there’s still room. for negotiation!”
Upon hearing this, Rachel pressed the phone against her ear again.
Mr. Smith continued, “But we don’t know what you want. Can you put it straight?”
“Well, 5% of the Smith Group’s market value.” Rachel said casually, “Also,
want the land in the business district in South Valley.”
As soon as she finished speaking, Mr. Smith and Mrs. Smith’s faces
The Smith Group’s current market value was 60 million dollars, so 5% was a

The land in the South Valley business district alone was worth 10 million
These two items added up to a total of 13 million dollars!
It seemed like Rachel was trying to blackmail them!
“Rachel, you’ve gone too far!” Mrs. Smith could not take it anymore and she snatched the phone from her husband. “You want the shares and the land? Dream on! Do you really think the Smith family is so stupid that we’ll give whatever you want?”
“I won’t force you. So let’s meet in court.” With that, Rachel hung up.
When Mr. Smith heard the beeping come from the other end of the line, his face gradually turned cold.
Mrs. Smith cursed angrily, “Rachel is such a bitch! How dare she take the opportunity to ask for so much money? Isn’t she afraid of being punished by
No matter what, she would not give so much money to Rachel,
After a long time, Mr. Smith walked out with a gloomy face. “I’ll bank account to see if we can gather enough money.”

As for the land in the South Valley, he needed to discuss it with Louis.
After all, Louis was the person who was in charge of the Smith Group.
When Mrs. Smith heard what he said, her eyes widened in shock. “You really want to give her so much money?”
That was a huge amount of money!
Even if they could gather so much money, the Smith family might decline
because of this.
Mr. Smith’s face darkened after Rachel hung up the phone. When he heard Mrs. Smith’s words, he grew even more upset and impatient. “Then tell me what to do! Besides satisfying her, can you figure anything out to save
