Thomas pointed at the door and said calmly to the ten members present, “You can all get the hell out now.”
Peter slammed his hands on the table and stood up. “Have you thought of the consequences, Thomas?! Without the ten of us, the Business Alliance would not exist! If we leave, the Business Alliance will disappear with us. Your total loss would be unfathomable!”
“Oh? Is that so? Are the ten of you really that important?” Thomas chuckled and clapped his hands.
After that, the meeting room’s door opened, and one by one, men in suits entered the room. Every single one of them was a big shot in the business circle!
When those men entered the room, Peter sensed something was amiss. He had the feeling that something really bad was about to happen. And he had really guessed it right.
“These businessmen had approached me a long time ago and expressed interest in joining the alliance to build the business together,” Thomas stated. “However, it’s a pity that the business alliance only has ten seats. They won’t be able to join us if you don’t leave…”
“Before this, I was in a dilemma and didn’t know how to reject them. But now that you’ve all decided to leave, it’s all right now, Peter. You really helped me big time. Now get moving and stop stalling. Leave right now to give room for others.”
Peter felt like throwing up after hearing that. He was still thinking of forcing Thomas to step down, but in the end, Thomas was ready to chase him out.
What the hell?! Did that even make sense?
But it was too late for him to regret anything!
Thomas did not even give Peter the opportunity to express regret before ordering his men to drag Peter and the others out. All ten members of the alliance had been ousted.
He and Pisces exchanged happy smiles as they looked at each other.
To deal with these kinds of people, they only needed to do one thing, be ruthless, and it would be enough.
After Peter and the others were cleared from the room, Thomas said to the crowd, “Now, we can create a brand-new Business Alliance and do great things together!”
The crowd erupted in cheers.
In the House of Vistaria, Peter approached Dragon Head and Lord Vedastus angrily and raged, “I followed your orders, but no harm had been done to Thomas, while I got fired instead! What would you do to make up for my loss?”
He had lost so much and he was on the verge of losing his damn mind that he dared to raise his voice at Dragon Head and Lord Vedastus.
Apart from Thomas, no one else in the entire Celandine City could be so thick- skinned in front of the two of them. Peter assumed the two of them had lost to Thomas many times, so he did not take them seriously.
That was an extremely foolish move.
Dragon Head chuckled and asked, “How do you plan to make me pay for your loss?”
“That’s easy. You just have to pay me two billion dollars as compensation for my loss. The loss I suffered after leaving Business Alliance was definitely greater. Even if you pay me two billion dollars, it’s not enough,” Peter answered naively.
Dragon Head nodded and said, “That’s not much, not much at all.”
He took out a cigar and offered it to Peter as he said, “Sit back and relax with a smoke. I’ll tell my staff to transfer two billion dollars to your company later, with not a single penny less.”
Peter was delighted. He could completely retire from the business and never have to associate with these people after he received the two billion dollars.
“Okay. It’s a deal.”
Peter accepted the cigar, and Dragon Head personally lit it for him.
Peter was cheerfully puffing on his cigar and thinking about how he would spend the two billion dollars. But after a few puffs, he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his throat and noticed that his heart rate had increased.
