MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 9 Episode 82
“You’ve helped the Huttons control the Stardust Corporation for so many years. I bet you must have embezzlement a lot?”
Lucas stared at Richard, who was kneeling in front of him, said coldly, “Return everything you’ve embezzled within the day. Then follow my instructions and complete a task, and I can consider sparing your life. Otherwise, it’ll be a piece of cake for me to kill you!”
Lucas’s voice, as if it came from a dungeon in hell, immediately made Richard turn as deathly pale.
He had been willing to be the Huttons’ puppet and take over managing the Stardust Corporationy naturally because he could profit from it.
Over the years, he had secretly reaped countless benefits from the Stardust Corporation through bribes, embezzlement of public funds, etc. He had accumulated quite a large fortune for himself.
But Lucas was now demanding that he return everything he embezzled, which was akin to cutting off his flesh!
How could he be willing to return everything?
“Since you are highly valued by Jace Hutton and have held power in the Stardust Corporation for so long, you shouldn’t be a fool.
“You should know very clearly whether your life or money is more important!
“Don’t think that you’ll get lucky either. If I really want to deal with you, I’ll definitely find you regardless of where you escape!
“Furthermore, don’t expect to rely on the Huttons to deal with me. I can tell you very honestly that I don’t take the Huttons seriously at all!
“If you don’t believe me, you can try betting this little life of yours!”
Lucas’s voice was so cold that it caused Richard to be overwhelmed with fear.
If someone else had said to his face that they didn’t take the Huttons seriously, Richard wouldn’t have believed it at all. But the aura Lucas showed in front of him made Richard believe that Lucas was really not afraid of the Huttons!
Although he didn’t know where Lucas got his confidence from, Richard really didn’t have the courage to test Lucas’s bottom line with his own life.
He was trembling vigorously in fear.
“Consider carefully what you want to do. Get out!”
With Lucas’s order, Richard seemed to have been pardoned from death and frantically fled out of Flynn’s office in a disheveled state.
The crowd outside the office hurriedly retreated when they saw the door of the general manager’s office suddenly open.
But when they saw that the person running out of the office in a disheveled manner was Richard, they were extremely surprised.
“This doesn’t seem right.”
“Shouldn’t Flynn Davis be the one fleeing in panic?”
“Why… Why is it Mr. Morris?”
Immediately afterward, two figures were thrown out of the general manager’s office like they were garbage and fell hard on the floor.
When the people saw that the two figures were the unconscious security captain and the bodyguard beside Richard, they were even more shocked!
“What… what happened in the general manager’s office just now?”
“Uh… Are my eyes playing tricks on me ? O-or did something inexplicable suddenly happen? How could these two people who work for Mr. Morris get knocked out?”
“Was it… the doing of the two young men? Or cold cold-faced bodyguard of Mr. Davis?”
The matter was so bizarre that the people outside the office were utterly confused, and the sounds of discussion continued for a long time.
Many people acutely sensed something. Perhaps, the Stardust Corporation was about to undergo a great change…
Lucas, Jordan, Flynn, and Stanley were the only ones left in the general manager’s office.
Seeing how frightened Richard, who had always been arrogant, was after hearing what Lucas said, Flynn was very pleased. He felt like he had vented all his pent up frustration.
He said excitedly, “Lucas, Richard Morris was so frightened by you that he won’t get up to any nonsense again. The Stardust Corporation has been under his control for years. Once he falls, we’ll be able to take the Stardust Corporation back soon!
“Just give me some more time, and I will definitely be able to get rid of those people in the Stardust Corporation and then help you take over the Stardust Corporation completely!”
Flynn was extremely elated and excited, full of energy.
Lucas shook his head. “It’s not that simple. Richard is certainly the biggest obstacle, but there are many other mid-level and high-level staff in the Stardust Corporation who take orders from the Huttons.
“Even if you deal with Richard, the remaining staff might not necessarily obey you. After all, they’re being supported by the Huttons.
“Besides, have you figured out who the pawns of the Huttons are and who the ones we can make use of are?” Lucas asked.
Flynn lowered his head in shame. “I’m sorry, Lucas. Due to Richard Morris’s influence, all the staff in the company are very defiant toward me. So…”
When Flynn just came to the headquarters of the Stardust Corporation, the first thing he did was to try and figure out this task.
But because of the executives’ strong hostility toward him, everyone in the Stardust Corporation’s headquarters didn’t dare to approach him or even give him any information, let alone join his side. Thus, Flynn barely made any progress in this task.
Lucas frowned. But after seeing Flynn’s situation in the Stardust Corporation headquarters today, he knew what was going on and didn’t blame him.
“Since we don’t know who we can use and who we can’t, we have to use the simplest and crudest method.
“Convene a management meeting for the Stardust Corporation and make it mandatory that all mid-level management and above attend! Those who disobey and refuse to attend will be fired!” Lucas said coldly.
Flynn was shocked. Based on Lucas’s idea and the situation of Stardust Corporation, at least half of the management staff wouldn’t attend the wedding. When the time came, would he really dismiss more than half of the middle and upper management staff?
If this happened, the Stardust Corporation probably wouldn’t be able to continue operating!
“Mr. Gray… isn’t this too radical? If you fire all of them, the company will run into problems…” Flynn said carefully.
