“Got it. I’ll inform Mrs. Nightshire,” Rayson said while looking at them.
He then made a sarcastic remark. “We have no idea if Mr. Nightshire is dead or alive, yet, none of you seniors in the company and business partners showed him any concern. And it seems fighting over the chairman’s position is more important than anything else at this point. You should be proud of yourselves.”
Rayson walked out ofthe room after ending his sentence. The expression on all the directors’ faces turned grim when they heard what he said.
Oswald nearly wanted to respond with a cold snort and storm out of the room, but since there were still other directors around, he steadied himself.
After plastering a cursory smile on his face, he looked at the directors and asked, “Let’s have some breakfast, shall we?”
One of the directors replied, “Forget it. There are other things I have to attend to!”
“Yeah, me too. I have to take my mom to the hospital as she’s not feeling well,” another echoed.
The directors all left the room.
The grim expression on Oswald’s face gave Dayver a shudder. After a short pause, he bade Oswald farewell and left in a hurry as well. Even a gullible fool like Dayver chose not to stay. Infuriated, Oswald threw a punch at the wall.
Meanwhile, Rayson drove to Nightshire Manor. After parking his car in the garage, she went straight to look for Susanne.
His heart sank when he saw how ashen-faced Susanne was. Things would have been different if Mr. Nightshire was still all right.
Oh, goodness. The heavens have already taken her husband away, so let’s hope the heavens don’t take her only son and daughter-in-law away, too.
“Hi, Rayson. You must have heard about Vinson, right? Send people to rescue them right now,” Susanne pulled herself together and said.
“I’ll make the arrangement right now,” Rayson said. He took out his phone and spent half an hour instructing his men to look for Vinson and Arielle.
Susanne heaved a sigh of relief when Rayson was done making all the arrangements.
“Mrs. Nightshire, Mr. Waysea brought all the directors to corner me in my office today.” Initially, Rayson did not want to disturb Susanne with this update, but on second thought, he felt he was obliged to keep her informed.
Should anything dreadful happen to Vinson, Susanne would have to take over Nightshire Group. Rayson would not allow the company to fall into the hands of opportunists.
Upon hearing that, Susanne looked upward to glance at him. “Cornered you in your office? Why would he do that?”
“Mr. Waysea wants to be the chairman of Nightshire Group!”
Rayson adjusted his glasses as his gaze darkened. “The company’s share price has plunged because of Mr. Nightshire’s accident. Since no one is leading Nightshire Group, they were worried that the company would go bankrupt.”
Susanne started trembling in agitation when she heard what Rayson said.
These are the so-called friends whom we had been through thick and thin with!
She could not believe these people would insist on taking over Nightshire Group when something had just happened to her son.
I’ll not allow Nightshire Group to fall into their hands. I’ll defend it with my life while waiting for my son to return. I’m sure he’ll come back alive!
“Tell everyone in Nightshire Group that I’ll be overseeing the company temporarily. Also, I want you to warn anyone who spread rumors about Vinson. We will file a lawsuit against those who disseminate false information about my son.”
Rayson was relieved to see the determined look on Susanne’s face. He was worried she might become disheartened after receiving the unsettling news about Vinson.
“All right, I’ll see to it. Make sure you get enough rest, Mrs. Nightshire. The company needs you.”
