“Such as smuggling from the local customs! If this got out, what do you think will happen?”
Donovan jumped to his feet with a start. He pointed at Andrius with his shaking hand and cried, “W -who the hell are you?”
It took Andrius one call to expose all of Donovan’s dirty dealings and secrets. No John Doe could have such capabilities to force a man to such desperation.
If all the dirty secrets got out, Donovan would have to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Andrius smiled innocently at the nervous Donovan. “Mr. Seaview, I told you. I’m just an assistant in the CEO’s office, and I am here to threaten you people.”
With that, Donovan’s phone continued to ring. The ringtone fueled his anxiety. He finally realized the ‘assistant‘ was not joking!
If he refused to cooperate, he would really lose his place in the city.
The thought made his legs weak. He fell on the floor and started to beg, “Okay, okay! I’ll listen to whatever you say! Please stop this!”
“I can, but you know what you must do,” Andrius said as he looked into Donovan’s eyes.
“I got it! I got it! I will agree to whatever suggestions Ms. Crestfall has for the Valiant Institute project!” Donovan nodded repeatedly.
“Good boy.” Andrius tapped on the man’s cheek.
Donovan dared not argue despite being insulted by the tap. He forced a smile on his face and tried his best not to further provoke Andrius.
Andrius scanned the room again and continued in a threatening tone, “If Ms. Crestfall is still not in the mood later, I will hold every one of you responsible.”
All the board members nodded timidly as they averted his threatening gaze. They were no saints, and the dirty secrets they held rivaled that of Donovan’s. If Andrius decided to go after any one of them, the consequences would be disastrous!
Back at the CEO’s office, Luna took a deep breath to suppress the anger within her. She fixed her
makeup in front of the mirror before she encouraged herself, “Luna, you can do this!”
Then, she walked out of the office and strutted back to the meeting room. She had no idea what had happened in the meeting room.
The noisy meeting room quieted down after Andrius left.
With their heads dropped, all the board members averted Luna’s gaze as she sat down. Luna scanned the room and said, “Let us continue.”
“About the details regarding the Valiant Institute project, I really hope all of you can reconsider the
“No need to reconsider!”
Before Luna could finish, Donovan said in haste, “I am all in on whatever suggestions you have for the project! I support your decision all the way!”
“Yes! Me, too! Full support!”
“We will listen to you!”
The other board members echoed and agreed unanimously.
Luna was surprised by the board members‘ reaction.
A while ago, the board members would rather go to war with her than agree to her suggestions. Now, everyone changed their minds.
Had they picked up their conscience?
Luna smiled. She had no idea what caused the sudden change of heart, but she was glad that it happened.
