UNRIVALLED GOD OF WAR - Season 2 Episode 89
After the Smiths left, Zachary Schulz and the other men did not stay on. Within moments, there was only Nathan Cross and his family left in the house.
There was a blatant look of suspicion on Penny’s face as she stared at Nathan. “Nathan, why is it one phone call from you has so many business magnates fighting to invest in me?”
Benson, Leah and Queenie were all staring at him curiously too. After what had happened earlier, Penny was not the only one who had suspicions.
With the workplace incident at the construction site, the safety protocols of Cross Corporation had been called into question. Rumors had it the mayor of the city had wanted to hand the project off to another company.
In light of such a worrying situation, the Smiths had insisted on withdrawing their investment to protect themselves. On the contrary, Zachary Schulz and the others had still been willing to invest.
There was definitely something fishy going on here!
And it all had something to do with the man standing before them.
Smiling slightly, Nathan replied, “Mr. Schulz and the others invested in Cross Corporation because they think we’re capable. However, there is another reason.”
Penny asked eagerly, “What is it?”
Realizing everyone was staring at him with bewildered looks on their faces, Nathan explained, “Didn’t I call Dr. Rothschild to come and do surgery for the construction workers injured in the incident? He had declined the mayor and those business magnates’ invitation and came to our house to eat, remember? Naturally, they think I’m very close with him.”
Penny interrupted and picked up where he stopped, “Dr. Rothschild is the director of the North Army Hospital and is supposedly the personal doctor of the General of the North Army. Obviously, his social standing is quite high. With that, those people have misunderstood how close the two of you are. Mr. Schulz and those businessmen are hoping to be in his good book so they try to butter you up. Am I right?
Nathan answered with a smile, “Something like that.”
Penny and her parents were not sure whether to laugh at the situation. They knew Nathan and Dr. Rothschild Nathan managed to get the doctor’s help was because the latter had once lost a bet to him.
Benson grinned as he said to Nathan, “Whatever it is, this is all thanks to you.”
Leah had a wide smile on her face as she agreed, “Yeah, that’s right! Nathan, you really are our lucky star. Ever since you came to our home, every misfortune we encounter just seems to get turned around and resolved so easily!”
At her parents’ words, Penny could not help but smile as well. Her parents were right, Nathan Cross was always doing something unexpected that had led to interesting results. As a result, she found herself at a loss most of the time.
That night, Nathan told the pale-looking Penny and his daughter to sleep first. He had some matters to attend to and had to leave the house.
When he stepped out of the house, Thomas was already waiting outside in a Volkswagen Phaeton.
Settling in the backseat of the car, he questioned calmly, “Have you found that Chien fellow?”
Thomas replied, “Yeah. I thought the punk would have already left the city but it turns out that he’s still in Channing with his lover.”
“Let’s go to him then.”
The car moved forward at a sedate pace, heading towards the shadier part of the city
Nathan had been discussing the incident with Bob, the supervisor of the construction site. The latter felt the crane toppling over was not a normal workplace accident but the work of someone sabotaging them deliberately.
Hence, Nathan had called Thomas and had the latter carry out his own investigations without waiting for the Ministry of Emergency Management (MEM) to finish their investigations. After all, Thomas was king of the Channing underworld now. Anybody doing this sort of shady business had to answer to him.
At the order from Thomas, the entire underworld went to work on the investigation. After some time, he received information that showed that a person called Chien was most likely behind the incident at the construction site. Unfortunately, the reason for his actions was still unknown.
This was why Nathan and Thomas were now on their way to Chien. They wanted to get to the bottom of this.
