Osmond found Mr. Murik. Meanwhile, Mr. Murik still respected Osmond very much.
“Professor Osmond, do you have any orders?”
“No, I remember that there is another oil field on the list that hasn’t prepared for inspections yet… I can’t let them get off the hook. Call them now.”
Mr. Murik glanced at the list and spotted that it was Adrian who had not yet signed up.
“I see, leave this to me.”
Soon, Adrian received a call from Mr. Murik.
“Hi, is this Adrian Laine? I’m Mr. Murik… Today is the day all oil traders in Bashra will participate in the testing. As long as you can pass the test, the procedures on your side will go through smoothly. Why are you not here yet?”
Then came Adrian’s weak voice on the phone.
“I’m sorry, Sir, … l didn’t intend to not cooperate, I suddenly fell ill…”
“That’s okay, you can arrange for someone to send the crude oil sample. The result will be the same anyway…”
At this point, Adrian suddenly became nervous.
“How is that possible? Sir, you know that I am an outsider. l have to do everything myself if I want to run an oil business here. How about… Can you bring them over to me, Sir?”
Mr. Murik was stunned upon hearing this and turned back to ask Osmond for his opinion.
Osmond knew Adrian was stalling for time as soon as he heard it, so he replied directly, “Sir, you tell him that I will bring someone to him to run the test. No one can escape today!”
When Mr. Murik saw how determined Osmond was, he immediately conveyed the news back.
“Did you hear that, Adrian? Professor Osmond said he will go do the test in person.”
“No problem. I want to thank Professor Osmond for making the trip. I’ll wait for him here.”
After hanging up the phone, Mr. Murik saw that Osmond started packing his clothes immediately.
Murik seemed a little hesitant and finally reminded, “Professor Osmond, I know Adrian so I think he is really sick and not deliberately delaying time. Please don’t be mad.”
Given Saul’s relationship, Mr. Murik also helped Adrian with a few good words.
It could be seen that Adrian’s analysis of Murik was not wrong. Josua was not a bad person, but unfortunately, he was just foolishly loyal. Many things in front of him had clearly gone wrong, but he still chose to believe it.
When Osmond heard this, he also forced a smile on his face.
”Sir, you must be joking. We must ensure absolute fairness when working. We absolutely cannot mix emotions with work. You can rest assured about this!”
Mr. Murik felt very relieved when he heard Osmond say this.
On the other side, after Adrian hung up the phone, he began to improve the plan he had prepared.
“Immediately pass on my order, Professor Osmond will come for a test soon. This is the most important task at the moment. It must be prioritized even if we have to stop production. Everyone must fully cooperate and make no mistakes!”
“Roger that!” Brock passed on Adrian’s order immediately while he stood by the window and looked at the entrance.
“I wonder who will win this time…” Adrian sneered inwardly.
Obviously, he knew that he and Osmond had almost shown their cards.
Both sides know what the other side wanted to do so this was equivalent to a duel between hidden plans!
