MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 6 - Season 9 Episode 85
The expression on Flynn’s face immediately froze.
Of course, he knew that he had made things very clear just now. But Jace saying that he didn’t hear it clearly and asking him to repeat himself was a blatant threat to him.
Jace’s aura as the successor of a powerful family made Flynn feel overwhelmed with pressure as a layer of cold sweat broke out on his back.
If Lucas wasn’t present, Flynn would have probably been unable to withstand the pressure and ended up surrendering to Jace.
Lucas remained sitting without saying anything or reacting. It was as if he was just an outsider and Flynn called the shots.
Flynn felt extremely tormented at this moment. On the one hand, it was Jace, the successor of the Huttons in DC; on the other hand, it was Lucas, whose strength was unfathomable. He couldn’t afford to offend either of them.
But now, he had to choose between the two.
Flynn suddenly recalled a lot of past events.
He remembered returning from studying abroad and joining the newly established Orange County branch of the Stardust Corporation.
At the time, he had just entered society and had nothing to offer but his sincerity. Even though he was only a junior employee of the Stardust Corporation’s Orange County branch, he did his best in everything. Thus, his efforts were quickly recognized, and he was soon promoted to become a department manager and eventually the general manager.
He already had power, status, and wealth at the time. In fact, he could have gained even more.
But one day, a man claiming to be the Huttons’ chief butler suddenly came to him and asked him to focus on working for the company’s new chairman. Flynn naturally agreed readily.
Moreover, he also learned some inside information. It turned out that the new chairman was actually the illegitimate son of the Huttons who had been driven out several years ago.
But his first meeting with Lucas didn’t go too well. As soon as Lucas, who looked extremely young, spoke, he produced evidence of the crimes Flynn had committed, including the embezzlement of public funds and regulation violations for years. It made Flynn frightened, and he immediately submitted to Lucas in fear.
But during their various interactions later, Flynn slowly discovered that Lucas wasn’t a simple person.
The more he came into contact with Lucas, the more he became frightened because the strength Lucas showed was far beyond his imagination!
Therefore, Flynn admired Lucas more and more and became increasingly devoted to him. When Lucas lacked manpower, he took the initiative to help Lucas take over the Solar Corporation in LA. Later, when Lucas made him choose between 15 million dollars in cash or going to the Stardust Corporation’s headquarters in DC to train, he chose the latter.
Flynn wanted to know the heights he could reach and the scenery he could see by following Lucas!
Since he had already made a decision back then, there was no point in hesitating now!
Flynn was no longer confused and hesitant but instead had a look of determination.
The horror, fear, and cowardice he felt toward Jace just now seemed to vanish immediately.
Flynn raised his head and boldly looked straight into Jace’s eyes. “Mr. Hutton, I just said that these people were absent from an important meeting without a valid reason and disobeyed the company’s management system. According to the corporation’s regulations, as the general manager, I have the right to dismiss them!”
No one expected that Flynn would still be able to confidently say this again to Jace’s face.
After a brief moment of surprise, the senior staff behind Jace all showed gloating expressions.
How dare Flynn say this to Jace? He probably had a death wish!
“Hah, Flynn Davis is a fool! Who does he think he’s speaking to?”
“Hmph, he thinks he’s so impressive for putting up a brave front in front of everyone as the general manager, but who buys it? Even if he says he wants to fire us, would he dare with Mr. Hutton here?”
“After offending Mr. Hutton, Flynn Davis can forget about working here! He’s the one who should be kicked out!”
“Haha, what an idiot!”
All the senior staff behind Jace sneered, laughing at Flynn’s foolishness of shooting himself in the foot.
Jace’s expression became even more gloomy and cold. He didn’t expect this foolish general manager sent over by Lucas to be so confident.
Did Lucas’s presence give him enough confidence?
But he wanted to make the person Lucas had chosen kneel down and disgrace himself in front of Lucas!
“I didn’t hear what you said. Repeat yourself!” Jace’s eyes were full of anger as he stared straight at Flynn, looking like he would lose his temper and kill him as long as Flynn said something he didn’t want to hear.
The dozen or so people originally in the conference room and the hundred-plus people Jace brought remained silent and didn’t even dare to breathe.
Everyone looked at Flynn, waiting to hear his answer.
It was an extremely bizarre scene.
But Flynn had already thought through what he wanted, so despite facing Jace’s repeated questions that were obviously threatening, he didn’t hesitate or feel afraid at all.
He looked straight at Jace’s gloomy face, straightened his back, and said loudly, “It’s the same even if I repeat myself. These people were absent from an important meeting without a valid reason and disobeyed the company’s management system. According to the corporation’s regulations, as the general manager, I have the right to dismiss them!”
At this moment, everyone’s heart tensed up. Jace must be furious!
“Hahaha. Hahahaha!” Jace suddenly let out a series of loud laughter.
But his laughter made everyone present feel their scalp tingle.
Jace… Jace was really furious!
He was hopping mad!
After all, Jace was the heir of the Huttons, one of the eight top families of DC. But he had been refuted by Flynn, a small fry, multiple times. He was naturally upset.
Flynn was doomed!
Flynn felt extremely uncomfortable.
Although he just chose to continue to follow Lucas, it didn’t mean that he could ignore Jace’s threats.
Jace was the successor of a powerful family after all. Half a year ago, Flynn would have felt that he was out of reach, and he wouldn’t have even dared to think of speaking with the future successor of the Huttons.
Now, he was not only talking to Jace, but he even refuted him in public, completely angering him!
Flynn felt suffocated, and his heart was about to jump out of his chest. He even felt fear and powerlessness crushing down on him.
If not for Lucas still sitting near him, he would have probably gotten down on his knees before Jace!
But now that things had gotten to this point, Flynn no longer had a choice!
“Hah, you’re the first person who has ever dared to speak like that to me. Guess what will happen to you.” Jace’s voice was as cold and gloomy as a venomous snake crawling over and revealing its sharp fangs.
