No one expected that Alex Swift would be so tough-minded, to the point he was unwilling to humor the military legend and Chief Instructor of Sword Camp.If the Chief Instructor of Sword Camp wanted to, he could easily become the head of the top nine troops at any time. He could even take over the position of the army’s Elder in the future.He was someone with unlimited potential and incredible influence.Unexpectedly, Alex did not give face to such such a person.However, Harvey was not angry. His hands clasped behind his back, he continued coldly, “Do you mean to tell me that you’re handling this whole situation without any bias, Sir Swift?”Alex replied solemnly, “Naturally. This incident involves too many things, as well as the reputation of the great Country H’s national figures. I cannot show favor to either side, lest my superiors fire me.”Harvey said, “Then, how is the investigation going now?”“The matter is undergoing investigation. Judging from the current evidence av
“No problem! I’ll gladly give full cooperation!”Alex immediately bowed.Soon, Buckwood Police Station sent Harvey various surveillance footage.Ray Hart called the technicians and they began to check various devices.Harvey also had his men take some samples from the scene of the accident.When Harvey checked the materials, he smiled and said, “Leader Swift, this sand is indeed sea sand.”“It’s forbidden to use it for construction as they are very corrosive. However, signs of such corrosion will only appear until ten or twenty years later.”“There’s a lot of concrete mixed with the sand. How could the buildings collapse straightaway?”“Judging from these samples, someone must have deliberately mixed something else in the materials.”“What?!” Alex and the others gasped. Was someone trying to frame Mandy?“Strong acid.”Harvey replied indifferently.“A very simple method. Add strong acid to a building that hasn’t completely solidified. The building will then collapse quickly
Both Simon and Lilian’s faces darkened.Especially Lilian’s, who had asked around only to find out that Mandy was to be jailed for at least ten years.Grandma Yates came over and grabbed Lilian’s hand. She comforted Lilian, saying, “Lilian, I’m worried both Simon and you are also going to prison together with Mandy!”“After all, you two went around giving hush money to the victims’ families. If this gets exposed, both of you will go to jail as well!”“Luckily, you two are still fine!”Grandma Yates had a comforting expression, but the words she used made Simon and Lilian’s complexion change drastically.They still wanted to bask in wealth and glory!Who in their right mind wants to go to jail?Lilian subconsciously blurted out, “Mother! Please save us and Mandy!”“What are you talking about? We’re a family!”“If I can help, then I’ll certainly help you!”“It’s just…I already asked your older brother about this. He said it’s a bit difficult, you see?”Grandma Yates glanced a
Lilian was taken aback for a moment. “Mother, what deal are you talking about?”“Of course, it’s about the Silver Nimbus Enterprise! To help your family solve this problem, I decided to take out my savings of about one hundred fifty thousand dollars and buy the company shares, which once belonged to Mandy.” Grandma Yates said, smiling. “One hundred fifty thousand dollars?!”Simon and Lilian looked at each other.Although they didn’t know much about company operations, they still understood that Silver Nimbus Enterprise was worth several millions of dollars. How could they simply sell off their equity for only a measly one hundred fifty thousand dollars?Looking at their conflicted gazes, Grandma Yates laughed. “I know you two wouldn’t be able to accept it right now, but you have no idea how serious the situation currently is.”“Come, Grant. Tell your uncle and aunt about the current situation.”Grant Bright walked forward with a smile and said politely, “Uncle, Auntie. Let me i
Both Simon Zimmer and Lilian Yates hesitated.They felt that selling all of Mandy’s shares for one hundred and fifty million dollars was a great loss.However, they had grown extremely fearful after they listened to Grant’s explanation. Grant continued to smile. “Uncle, Auntie, don’t you understand the current situation?”“Although there hasn’t been a large-scale check-out wave yet, I estimate that it will happen in two or three days!”“If you continue to hesitate, forget getting one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. You might have to take on a huge debt!”“I guarantee that even after you sell the company to the Yates family, we can still allow Mandy to continue working in it.”“You’ve got nothing to lose!”However, Simon and Lilian still couldn’t come to a decision. Grandma Yates suddenly coughed and changed the subject. “Lilian, what do you think of Grant?”Lilian quickly replied, “A successful man!”“That’s right!” Grandma Yates laughed. “Grant has been in this busine
Xynthia touched her cheek and stared at Tanya in disbelief. She couldn’t believe that her aunt, who loved her so much, would slap her over such a thing!Slap!Just then, Harvey, who had been watching quietly from behind, stepped forward. Before anyone could react, he slapped Tanya so hard that it stunned her. Tanya was not the only one.Leyton was also stunned.Keith was the same.Grandma Yates, too!Everyone was completely dumbfounded!They had known that Harvey was there. However, in their eyes, he was just a useless live-in son-in-law who wasn’t even worth a fart in the wind.And yet, this wimp actually slapped Tanya?!Leyton was the first to spring into action. He pointed at Harvey, cursing, “Rebel! Rebel! How dare you, a live-in son-in-law, lay a hand on a Yates?”“You’re dead!”“Mandy’s not the only one who's going to jail!”“You’re gonna spend a long time in the slammer too!”“Argh!”Harvey stared at Leyton, who was jumping up and down agitatedly in front of him.
Tanya spoke up coldly, “Harvey! Since you’re considered a part of our family, we’ll turn a blind eye to what you’ve done.”“But don’t be rash! Don’t get your father-in-law and mother-in-law in trouble!”“Trouble? How could I trouble them?” Harvey spat back, just as coldly.Keith said righteously, “If you don’t let them sell the company equity to us, then you might as well be harming them!”“When the clients demand for their refunds, how do you plan to repay that huge debt?”Harvey replied sarcastically, “Don’t we have you, Uncle? I heard that Uncle’s teacher is a big shot in Wolsing. As long as you come forward to deal with the associated parties, then there should be no problem, right?”Simon and Lilian’s eyes lit up at Harvey’s words.Lilian added hurriedly, “That’s right, Brother. How did we forget that?”“There’s no need to transfer the equity. As long as you’re willing to come forward, they would surely do you a favor. After that, I can just have Mandy gift you a villa!”
In the evening, the Yateses gathered at a clubhouse.Keith held a glass of wine with a smile, saying, “Grant, your plan’s quite good. I’ve just contacted several people from the government.”“Tomorrow, they’ll exert pressure on Silver Nimbus Enterprise. I doubt Simon and Lilian could withstand that!”“This time tomorrow, we’ll get Silver Nimbus Enterprise’s equity!”“We Yateses will become a top-tier family!”Grant raised his wine glass as well. “Thank you for giving me this opportunity, Sir Yates. I promise I’ll go all out for the Yates family in the future, and I’ll never hesitate!”“I’ll be Yateses’ cash cow from now on!”The Yates family laughed loudly as they listened to Grant.Leyton covered his face. “Big Brother, I think we have to teach that cretin Harvey a lesson after this whole thing is over!”“He’s just trash! How dare he hit me?! He’s unbelievable!”Tanya also gritted her teeth. “Yes! That kind of man should sit in prison for the rest of his life!”Grant grinne
