In the evening, at the Bauer family’s manor.Lights shone around the side hall.Joseph comforted several important members of Flutwell’s business alliance before sending them off. Then, he approached an exquisite calligraphy hanging on the wall.A little neglect may breed great mischief!Joseph upheld this principle with great seriousness—this was the main reason he was able to rise so quickly in just a span of six years.He had been planning for Flutwell’s new district for many years; this was a very important battle for him to win, all for the sake of rising to power.Yet… Not only did Harvey make a joke out of the entire event, but he also turned Joseph into the family’s biggest joke.Most importantly, Harvey turned the entire district into the most luxurious cemetery.This meant that Flutwell’s top district had instead become the top cemetery for the wealthy.Besides a few successful trades Joseph forced, ninety-nine percent of his property remained untouched.After all,
Joseph froze. Then, a frown appeared on his face. “How did Harvey manage to get Golden Palace’s Law Enforcement to fear him?”“I usually give them quite a lot of money.”“Why are they being so hesitant now that I want someone dead?”Ruby frowned as well.“Maybe they’re scared of the person who came with Harvey that night.”“After all, that person had the Dragon Guards with her. She was in a car with a license plate from Wolsing as well. Her identity must be quite extraordinary.”“Before figuring out Harvey and the person’s identity, Golden Palace probably wouldn’t take action.”“You may be right…”Joseph let out a huge sigh.“Harvey’s quite impressive!”“He knows how to make use of someone else’s strength pretty well.”“I think I know why the houses ended up in his hands now.”“That person from Wolsing must’ve helped him.”“If not, judging from those young masters and princes, there was no way they’d finish the procedures overnight.”“That person must have a pretty high
“Joseph can just get his men to carry the coffins out of the place, right?”Mandy was confused.“He wouldn’t dare,” Harvey calmly replied.“The noble Kshatriyas are the ones sleeping there. Every single one of them died in Flutwell for no reason.”“Now that a kind-hearted person gave them such a high-class funeral, the Indians would definitely thank the person no matter what they truly think.”“If Joseph decides to move the coffins away, he’ll completely turn against the Indians and the Celestial Temple.”“Judging from Joseph’s behavior, he wouldn’t do something that would make him suffer any loss.”“He’ll think of another way to deal with this.”“That said, this isn’t what we should be worrying about right now.”“After losing the capital return of the new district, Joseph and the business alliance’s control in Flutwell’s business world will plummet.”“If you want to stand your ground here…”“You should definitely make arrangements as soon as you can. Make sure to take advan
Harvey revealed a calm smile.“I don’t know if Jeff will actually return the money…”“But I do know one thing: it’s only natural for people to give back what’s been owed.”“If you want absolute authority within Hearthstone Corporation and use this opportunity to build a career…”“Taking the money back is a good start.”Harvey chuckled.“While your mother’s gone, I can go with you to the Whitebane Center if you’re feeling well.”“I can get the money back for you.”Mandy shook her head, and flashed Harvey a warm smile. “It’s fine. I've already found someone to do it for me.”“She’ll be able to get the money back. All I need to do is to give her something in return.”Upon seeing the confidence on Mandy’s face, Harvey smiled and said nothing.She had been struggling in the business world for the longest time. Surely, she would have ideas of her own at this point.And so, Harvey patiently waited for Mandy to deal with the situation.…“Brother-In-Law! What a coincidence!”R
“Huh?”The woman’s name was Larisa Lee; upon hearing Harvey’s words, she froze, her pale face going bright red.She instinctively stepped toward Xynthia and whispered, “Is your brother-in-law crazy or something?”“How can he talk to a woman like this?”“Is he still a pervert who’s never touched your sister for three whole years, just like you said?”Naturally, Xynthia must’ve said those things back then. Thus, Larisa was showing an odd look as she glared at Harvey.Xynthia felt awkward.“You’re mistaken, Larisa…”Xynthia quickly thought of a way to relieve the awkwardness.“My brother-in-law’s pretty talented, Larisa.”“He wouldn’t ask you this for no reason.”“Are you actually losing sleep?”Larisa nodded, still looking weirded out. “Xynthia, your brother-in-law isn’t some conman, is he?”“I heard there are people who can see what’s wrong with everyone’s bodies, and use that to scam others…”Xynthia was at a complete loss—she had no idea how to explain the situation.
Harvey shook his head helplessly after seeing Larisa strut away.Xynthia was infuriated.“Honestly! Doesn’t she know how talented you are?!”“She just doesn’t believe you!”Xynthia hesitated for a moment after she was done complaining.“Brother-In-Law, is everything you said true?” she asked while looking at Harvey.“Is Larisa going to be in trouble?”Harvey nodded.“Of course. She’ll be in a life-threatening situation soon.”“Right. You’ll be affected by her evil energy as well. It’s better if you take precautions.”Harvey put a few drops of blood on a new piece of tissue before handing it to Xynthia.“Keep this with you.”“Okay.”Xynthia cleverly nodded her head before happily putting the tissue in her pocket.“Right!”After keeping the tissue, Xynthia slapped her head and said, “I just told Larisa we’d play Script Murder with some of my other university friends.”“Do you want to come?”“Script Murder?”Harvey froze upon hearing the name.“What’s that?”“It’s just
Larisa wasn’t injured very badly—she wasn’t in danger…However, she was in complete shock.She kept twitching on the ground as she covered her wound, and wouldn’t respond to anyone calling her name.Xynthia was so scared that she started shivering.She was the one who pulled the trigger. She didn’t think that the firearm would actually shoot out a live bullet.If it weren’t for the recoil, Larisa would’ve been dead!Xynthia's heart kept racing. She knew she had to call Harvey after something this big happened.After understanding the situation, Harvey drove here as quickly as he could.Flutwell’s Film City was a brightly-lit place filled with food and entertainment.Xynthia kept shivering as she sat slumped on a bench. She was holding a bottle of water, but she didn’t even take a sip of it.The local police force were already involved with the situation. The owner of the Script Murder place was apprehended instantly.Xynthia’s university friends and everyone else had to stay
“Larisa!”“Are you alright?!”“My baby girl!”A middle-aged woman in traditional clothing arrived on the scene with several companions.She approached Larisa anxiously, before throwing a large fit.Senior Miller immediately stood up and bowed in front of the woman, calling her Mrs. Lee.Xynthia wasn’t from Flutwell, so she didn’t know who Mrs. Lee was.The university students began to mumble to each other.“That’s Larisa’s mother!”“I heard she’s from Flutwell’s business alliance! She’s involved with the development of Flutwell’s new district! She’s filthy rich!”“Her father’s even better! I think he’s a prominent figure from Longmen!”“Her family’s so rich! Larisa said she was going to pay for the Script Murder, but who knew that this would happen?”The students were showing admiration; Larisa’s family was simply too extraordinary. She wouldn’t need to ask for a single thing her entire life; she already had everything.The students were born in normal families. Even some
