MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 9 Episode 81
Lucas’s voice sounded like the voice of a devil from hell, and it immediately made Richard’s body stiffen.
Jordan walked to the door and blocked the office door. He turned around and stared at Richard with an evil smile.
Richard felt even more terrified, and even his calves began to tremble.
“Wh-what do you want? This is the Stardust Corporation. I’m the deputy general manager of the company. But you want to stop me from leaving?
“I’m warning you. I’m valued highly by the Huttons. If you dare to do anything to me, the Huttons won’t let you off!
“Did you hear me? Get the hell out of the way right now !” Richard hollered furiously and tried to use the Huttons to intimidate Lucas and the others.
Lucas sneered. “The Huttons? Do you really think we’re afraid of them?
“The Huttons have already occupied my Stardust Corporation for so long, and I have yet to settle the score with them! I want to see how they won’t let me off!”
What Lucas said immediately made Richard look extremely shocked and horrified.
What… what did I just hear?
My Stardust Corporation?
Is this… young man actually… that one?
Others might not even know the inside story about the Stardust Corporation, but Richard was someone trusted by the Huttons. He had even previously served as the general manager of the Stardust Corporation for almost ten years, so he was clear about the changes that had happened to the Stardust Corporation in the recent months.
Although he didn’t know the specific reason, the shares of the Stardust Corporation, which were in the hands of the Huttons and some of the company’s top executives just six months ago, were suddenly acquired by Michael Hutton, the Hutton’s helmsman, at a high price.
Afterward, Michael also took back the position of chairman, which originally belonged to Jace, and suddenly handed over the property rights of the complete Stardust Corporation to a strange young man named Lucas Gray.
After finding out about this, Jace was exasperated. But he couldn’t stop his father and could only watch him hand over the Stardust Corporation to the young man of a different last name.
Later, Richard learned from one of Jace’s tantrums that the young man named Lucas Gray was the illegitimate child expelled from the Huttons twenty years ago!
It was simply unprecedented for an illegitimate child who had long been expelled from the family to suddenly obtain all the shares and property rights of the Stardust Corporation, which had a market value of over two billion dollars!
Moreover, these shares were initially scattered among the direct descendants of the Huttons and the senior executives. But Michael ordered all the Huttons not to interfere with the affairs of the Stardust Corporation.
But how could the Huttons, who had already treated the Stardust Group as their own property, accept this fact?
It was clearly property belonging to the family, yet it was given to an illegitimate child of a different last name. It was totally unacceptable!
In particular, Jace, the former chairman of the Stardust Corporation, was extremely indignant and furious.
Thus, Jace found Richard and asked him to take over the Stardust Corporation for the Huttons.
In other words, Richard was the general manager of the Stardust Corporation in name, but he had to obey Jace’s orders for many important decisions.
Although it was a role similar to a puppet, Richard was still elated because it meant that Jace valued him.
So what if he was a puppet? Apart from the Huttons, he was the leader with the highest authority in the Stardust Corporation. He had power, status, and wealth.
But he didn’t expect the true owner of the Stardust Corporation to return!
“Lucas… are you that Lucas Gray?!” Richard stammered with horror on his face.
Lucas smiled. “Seems like you still don’t know of my existence as the chairman.”
Richard’s mind instantly went blank!
At this moment, all he felt was that everything was over.
Richard’s legs went limp, and he fell to his knees, unable to support himself any longer.
He was incredibly flustered and panicked as he broke out in a sweat and hurriedly defended himself. “Mr… Mr. Gray! I didn’t know it was you who came! If I had known, I would never have dared to offend you!
“Mr. Gray, please forgive me on account that I was ignorant and that I’ve worked hard for the company for so many years!”
Lucas sneered. “I still remember you saying to Flynn that he just got close to an abandoned child of the Huttons to obtain his position. How can I, the abandoned child, make the noble deputy general manager Mr. Morris kneel down before me?”
Richard was on the brink of tears. “Mr. Gray, I was just talking nonsense. I have a foul mouth, and I tend to run my tongue, but I didn’t mean it at all! Mr. Gray, please forgive me for this inadvertent mistake!”
Then Richard raised his palm, slapped himself on the mouth, and scolded himself, “I just keep saying the wrong things. I don’t mean it!”
Lucas didn’t even change his expression in the slightest as he said coldly, “You just said that Flynn doesn’t have any right to fire your subordinates or even a janitor, huh?
“You even said that the Stardust Corporation belongs to the Huttons, and they won’t let me off if I offend you.
“Hmph, I don’t know when my property became someone else’s and why the general manager I appointed is under you, the deputy general manager!
“Mr. Morris, why don’t you tell me why that is the case?”
Hearing this, Richard looked extremely awful, as if he was about to die.
Although he had just mocked Flynn by saying that Lucas was just an abandoned child of the Huttons who meant nothing at all, he knew in his heart that even if Lucas was just an illegitimate son of the Huttons, he still couldn’t compare to him.
After all, Michael Hutton had resisted the family’s objections and insisted on collecting all the shares of the Stardust Corporation and handing them to Lucas.
If he was really just an abandoned child driven out of his family long ago, why would Michael do this?
The Stardust Corporation wasn’t a small company, and its market value had long exceeded two billion dollars. It also provided the Huttons with a significant income every year.
In fact, at the time, many Huttons had speculated whether there was a deeper meaning to Michael’s action, such as bringing Lucas back to the family, whether he would hand over the position of helmsman to him, and so on.
Therefore, Lucas was definitely not someone a nobody like him could belittle.
In addition, Lucas still had a powerful expert by his side, who had managed to severely injure and knock out the bodyguard and security captain Richard had brought over. They were still lying on the floor unconscious. Richard didn’t dare to behave rudely to Lucas anymore.
Now, since Lucas had returned to DC and come to the Stardust Corporation, he definitely wouldn’t let him off easily…
The more Richard thought about it, the more horrified he became. His clothes were already drenched in sweat. He didn’t know how Lucas would deal with him next…
