“Xyla, although Mary went a little too far, don’t you think sending her to prison is too harsh?” asked Tony.
Xyla snorted coldly. “Do you really think it’s too harsh?”
“I think it is. All Mary did was get a few people riled up to yell at you. There wasn’t any actual damage done.”
Xyla could not believe that Tony had just said that. What did he mean there was no actual damage done?
Weren’t being verbally attacked and framed with ill intentions considered a form of damage?
“You weren’t emotionally hurt. Therefore, you wouldn’t understand how painful it is,” said Xyla with a bitter smile.
“Okay, okay. Xyla, I understand. However, things have already happened. I’ll apologize on her behalf. Please do me a favor and let her go, will you?”
Tony sounded very sincere, but Xyla knew that his sincerity was completely fake. She knew the Sullivan family better than anyone else. The only reason he sounded sincere was because he felt truly afraid that his daughter would be sent to prison.
“I’m sorry. I can’t do that. Uncle Sullivan, if there’s nothing else I can do for you, I’m hanging up,” said Xyla before directly ending the phone conversation.
Immediately after she did so, Tony called her on the phone again. When Xyla saw the incoming call, she pressed the button to reject the call before starting her car and driving off.
She was well aware that rejecting Tony could result in what Mary warned her about. Tony might very well withdraw his investment from the project he and the Quest family were working together on. The project in question was a property development in a high-end tourist area. It was a collaboration between the Quest family and the Sullivan family. In total, twenty billion dollars had been invested, twelve billion dollars from the Quest family and eight billion dollars from the Sullivan family.
This was a collaboration both families had agreed on before the Dragon Group withdrew their investment from the Sullivan family.
If the Sullivan family suddenly withdrew the eight billion dollars they invested, the project would certainly come to a temporary halt. Although the Quest family was wealthy, eight billion dollars was not an amount they could fork up within a short amount of time.
Meanwhile, it would be no easy feat to look for new investors. After all, eight billion dollars was a huge amount of money.
However, Xyla was not afraid at all, because she had a lot of money. Although money could not solve all the problems in the world, it was enough to give someone the courage to do What they wanted to.
At the same time, in the Dragon Group CEO’s office, Zack Cassidy looked respectfully at a man who was reading through documents.
“Fifth Master, the young madam has sorted out the problem on her own. Now, everyone is criticizing Mary Sullivan on the internet,” said Zack with a serious look on his face.
The man he was talking to was dressed in a black shirt and a pair of matching black formal pants. With his sleeves rolled up slightly, there was a casual element to his outfit. His distinctive facial features seemed extraordinarily attractive under the bright sun. Although the sunlight was warm, it could not melt away the coldness about him. He was like a king in his own league.
Slowly, Stanley Batton looked up. After closing the spotless black folder in his hand, he smiled approvingly and picked up his phone.
“Fifth Master, I suggest that you don’t go onto those social media applications now,” said Zack nervously.
Stanley did not say anything. Instead, he examined Zack’s face carefully.
Feeling Stanley’s gaze on him, Zack continued, “Some of the content might make you feel uncomfortable. Hearing this, Stanley became even more curious. Without asking Zack what he meant, he immediately opened Twitter and Instagram.
