Chapter 240 Are You Publicly Provoking Me?
“Oh…” Jimmy drawled as if he had suddenly realized something. “Do you mean the Smith family who relied on women to make a comeback?”
“Yes!” Landon casually picked up the wine glass beside him.
He already knew that David had ulterior motives toward Miss Grey, but he did not expect that David would make things difficult for the Smith family for Miss Grey.
It seemed that David had indeed fallen in love this time!
Jimmy was puzzled. “Does the Smith family have any conflict with David?”
When it came to business matters, the Smith family was not on the same level as them at all. Logically speaking, people who were not on the same level should not have any conflicts.
Landon looked at Jimmy with a faint smile.
With Jimmy’s personality, he probably would not be able to figure out that David was angry because of a woman this time.
However, Landon did not intend to say anything.
“Don’t think about nonsense. Work hard!” He patted Jimmy’s shoulder meaningfully.
Perhaps it wouldn’t be long before David introduced Rachel to them.
The shop under Mr. Smith’s name was located in a prime location. As soon. as the news of selling it was released, someone quickly bid for it.
The issue of compensation was resolved, but he had no choice but to call Louis regarding the land in the South Valley.
“Louis, I know how important the South Valley project is to you, but Jane is your biological sister. You can’t just stand by and watch her die.” Mrs. Smith. begged with a choked voice. “Jane is the Smith family’s child, your biological sister: She and the Smith family are bound together for good or ill. You
Louis secretly gritted his teeth.
It had to be said that Rachel had really given him a big problem.
The South Valley project was the focus of Smith Group’s development this
year. As long as he got the market in South Valley, the Smith family’s status in Seaxas would rise.
Giving up the land in South Valley was equivalent to giving up the right to compete with Stellar Corporation for the market in South Valley.
On one side was the Smith family, and on the other side was his biological sister…
It was really difficult for him to make a choice.
Mrs. Smith did not get a response from Louis for a long time. She had some guesses in her heart. She cried very miserably, “Louis, Jane is your biological younger sister. How can you watch her go to jail? If she goes to jail, I don’t want to live anymore!”
The heart–wrenching cries made Louis frustrated.
He raised his hand and pinched his forehead. He said coldly, “Tell Rachel that I agree to her request!”
With that, he hung up the phone without saying another word.
He sat in his office and looked out the window at the night. He silently lit a cigarette.
At this moment, the assistant pushed open the door and entered. “Mr. Smith, Mr. Zane and the others are here…”
When Louis heard this, his pupils constricted. He knew very well that Mr. Zane had most likely come to denounce him.
He stubbed out the cigarette in his hand and said calmly, “Got it.”
As expected, as soon as Louis arrived at the meeting room, he heard the directors, led by Mr. Zane, making things difficult for him.
“Mr. Smith, you better give us a reasonable explanation!”
“Miss Grey just left and such a big problem happened to the company. Mr. Smith, does it mean that you’re not capable enough?
“You affect the company because of your private problems. Not only has it severely affected the company’s operations, but it has also affected the company’s stock market. As the direct leader of the company, if you can’t set yourself as an example, I think it’s better to replace this position with
When Louis heard this, his face suddenly darkened. “Mr. Zane! Are you
openly provoking me?”
