As he was about to call Vinson again, his phone rang. When he saw that it was Geoffrey calling him, he quickly answered the phone.
Before Geoffrey could say a word, Rayson asked worriedly, “Geoffrey, does Mrs. Nightshire know about what happened to Mr. Nightshire yet?”
Rayson was worried that Susanne couldn’t handle the news.
“Mr. Seet, Mrs. Nightshire already knows about the accident, and she wants you to come over. She said she has things for you to do,” Geoffrey answered.
Rayson’s gaze darkened when he saw the directors gathering outside his office.
What a bunch of ungrateful b*stards! They were able to lead a wealthy life because of Mr. Nightshire, and now, when something happens to Mr. Nightshire, these people are so eager to take over. How despicable!
“Tell Mrs. Nightshire I’m on my way.” With that, Rayson hung up the phone and kept it in his pocket.
He then stood up and walked out of the office.
“Are we having a board of directors meeting today? Why is everyone here?” Rayson asked and acted like he didn’t know why they were there.
“Mr. Seet, do you know anything about Mr. Nightshire’s accident?”
The man who asked that question was Oswald Waysea, a director of the company. He was also Vinson’s father’s close friend when Vinson’s father was alive.
“How could I not know? It’s being reported by all the news outlets.”
Rayson looked at Oswald and raised his brow. “Why do you ask?”
“Mr. Seet, don’t you know our share prices are dropping drastically?” Oswald shot Rayson a cold look and said, “If this goes on, the company is going to go bankrupt.”
Rayson responded with a cold glare. “What do you want to do about it?”
Oswald kept silent and put on a stern look.
What do I want to do about it? I want to take over Nightshire Group, of course!
However, can I just say that out loud? I can’t!
If l say it out loud, it means that I have a malicious ambition! I need someone else to say it on my behalf.
He then shot a discreet glance at the man next to him, signaling him to speak up.
Heeding the message, the man began, “Mr. Seet, it’s not that we’re trying to force things through. We just can’t bear to watch the company go bankrupt. After all, the company doesn’t belong to the Nightshire Group alone. We’ve all worked hard to build this company.”
The person who Oswald had signaled to speak up was Dayver Young. He was also a friend of Vinson’s father before his death. However, he didn’t have much knowledge of business finance either.
Back then, he managed to become a director of Nightshire Group because he forked out a portion of money when Nightshire Group needed help. In order to express his gratitude, Vinson’s father gave him some shares.
“What are you saying?” Rayson looked at him and asked.
“Well, Vinson had gotten into an accident, right? The company needs a leader. I’m recommending Mr. Waysea to be Nightshire Group’s chairman,” Dayver answered.
“I can’t do anything about it, can I? I’m just an assistant,” Rayson replied with a grim expression.
The directors knew there was nothing Rayson could do about it. However, they couldn’t reach Susanne.
Since Rayson was Vinson’s assistant, they assumed that he would surely be able to contact Susanne. That was why they had gone up to him and told him what they had in mind. They just wanted him to relay the message to Susanne.
Rayson glanced at the other directors and raised his brows when he asked, “How about the others? Do you guys feel the same way? Do you guys want Mr. Waysea to be the chairman?”
The other directors looked at Oswald before turning their attention back toward Rayson. In fact, they felt that it didn’t matter who was the chairman of the company.
They just wanted the company to do well so that they could make a fortune. However, they saw Oswald staring at them solemnly, and they all thought that Vinson was most probably dead.
Hence, they answered, “Well, we guess so.”
