ecent managerial duties have been neglected. ”
”You are spending more time on social media and playing a video game rather than running a company. ”
”What else did you all expect from a 20 year old? I knew it from the beginning. At this age, the youngsters only know how to drink and party. ”
”Yes. Yes. This was why I objected to her taking charge last quarter and now the new quarter is going to start. We need to make some changes. ”
”I agree. This quarter we need to do damage control. Otherwise, things might go beyond repair and our company stocks would truly plummet. ”
”I have sources saying that an economic storm is coming. We need to stabilize our condition soon. Otherwise, we will be in hot water. ”
One by one all the board members started raising their voices and pointing fingers at Mia.
And the person who threw gasoline to light this fire, Jonathan Hofstader, silently rested his face on his palm and observed her, taking note of Mia ’s every action.
Once again the strange glint flashed past his eyes.
Mia, on the other hand, silently looked at the center of the wooden table observing the pattern of the rippling waves on the wooden surface.
She patiently listened to every single complaint that was raised against her. She did this for a whole twenty minutes before calmly standing up.
”I have heard everyone ’s opinions. I will give you all a suitable answer soon. ” She curtly replied, preparing to leave.
”No, Mia. You cannot run away like this, Princess. ” Jonathan Hofstader stood up and followed after her.
Seeing these two, Rey as well got up and quickly walked out, but he was stopped by two men who asked him to sign for his attendance. He had come here today instead of Alex so he had to take care of a few formalities.
”Damn it. Give me quickly. ” Rey did not have a good feeling.
Outside the room, Mia continued walking straight to the elevator and pushed the button to the ground floor.
After giving today ’s meeting half an hour, she knew that things had now become unsalvagable. Back in that room, there was nothing she could have said or done.
They were all already against her. Or rather someone had planned everything beforehand.
”You shouldn ’t leave so soon, princess. You should at least try and talk to some of the board members, else you might really end up losing everything you own. ”
Mia stopped in her tracks hearing the familiar voice. She did not turn around. However, the other person still chuckled and walked over to her.
”You really sealed your own fate this time. I didn ’t even have to do anything. A scandal like this will finish you. ”
Jonathan Hafstader lifted a few strands of her soft silky hair and felt it in his fingers, the strange glint flashing past his eyes again.
But Mia quickly moved away and turned to glare at him icily. She gave him a stern look and then walked away without saying anything else.
”Your father is gone, princess. You better stop deluding yourself that you can run this company. You need me. You know that. It ’s checkmate, princess. ”
Mia indifferently closed the elevator door. She then walked out to catch a cab and directly went over to her house. Alex was waiting for her there.
”How did it go? I just spoke with Rey. ”
”How else could it go? It was just as we expected. ”
”Damn it. I knew it. That pervert bastard wants to screw you out of every penny you are worth. Damn. What a disgusting man! ” She spat out angrily. This man was supposed to be their guardian.
”What are you going to do now? ”
Mia shook her head. ”I will make a few calls to my lawyers and see what could be done, but I think we are going to lose the house. ”
”Ok. ” Alex nodded. She also thought of something so she quickly walked into her room and then directly logged into her game cabinet.
”Liam, are you there? ” She quickly sent a message to the only guy who could probably help them at the moment.
”Liam, could you please tell me what is the best way to farm gold coins? We urgently need money and lots of it. ”
Alex sent the message and silently prayed. He had come through every single time they needed him, so this time also…
”Please. Come on. Come on. ”
Ding! A message popped up the next second but it was not the one she expected. Instead, it was a strange cryptic message.
”Go to the airport. Now. ”
