Everyone watching them began to laugh at Xyla. The same went for Emily Quest, May Conner, and Tom Sullivan. They could not hold back their laughter anymore.
Noticing the changes in Jeremy Quest’s expression and his gaze, Xyla reassured her father with a smile. Then, her gaze landed on Stanley Batton as she asked, “Hubby, they’re still skeptical of your identity. What should I do?”
Bailey Ronson folded her arms disdainfully and glared at Xyla and Stanley. “What? Are you trying to ask that impostor standing next to you to pretend to be the president of Dragon Group again?”
Stanley unhurriedly stood up from the chair without saying a single word and pulled out his phone, making a phone call. “Inform Sullivan Food Group that all the major banks are not going to lend them a dime from now on. Pass on the message to them right away.”
Up on hearing that, Bailey Ronson rolled her eyes instantaneously and mumbled to herself, “What the hell was that? What a fraud.”
The crowd started booing at him as well.
Toot toot toot…
As soon as Stanley hung up the call, Julian Sullivan’s phone rang. It was the president of a bank who called him. Therefore, he picked up the call immediately.
“Mr. Julian, I’m sorry to tell you that we’ll stop providing a loan to your company after your current loan from our bank is due.”
“What?! President Ruckman, you can’t do that to me. Sullivan Food Group always pays the loans on time. Why are you going to stop providing us loans after that?” Tom Sullivan’s face was as dark as night.
Likewise, everyone in the hall was dumbfounded by his words.
The smile on Bailey’s face had disappeared as well… The man on the other end of the phone hung up on Tom without giving him further explanation. On top of that, Julian’s phone did not stop ringing after his first call ended. One after another, different banks contacted Julian and told him the exact same thing. All the major banks where the Sullivan family obtained their loans from had declared that they would stop working with him from now on.
In the future, they would not give the Sullivan family a single penny.
While all these were happening, Bailey was already dumbstruck by the terrible news. Drowning in shock, she sank to her seat, unable to speak a word.
What was going on?
Was Xyla serious about everything she had said earlier?
Was the person next to her really the president of Dragon Group?
Besides Bailey, everyone else in the hall was also stunned. Those people who looked down on Xyla and Stanley just now had all zipped their mouths. This was especially true for those who had insulted them in front of the crowd. They were all trembling in fear.
They were afraid that the young master of Dragon Group would hold a grudge against them and ruin their business in return.
All the faces in the hall turned sour in no time, except Xyla’s and Stanley’s. The two of them were as calm as ever.
After scanning the expressions of the people around him, Stanley fixed his eyes upon Jeremy Quest’s face, which was full of confusion, and took his identification card out of his pocket, handing it to Jeremy solemnly. “Dad, let me introduce myself formally. I’m Stanley Batton. I’m not a medical student but the heir of Dragon Group.”
Jeremy took the identification card from his palm. His name was clearly printed on the card. ‘Stanley Batton’ two huge words hitJeremy in the eyes when he looked at the card.
Suddenly, everything seemed so unreal to him. It was as if someone had just told him that the sun had risen in the west this morning. The man his daughter married was one of the top people in the social class?
Was he from Dragon Group?
No wonder Dragon Group was injecting funds into Quest Property Group when they faced trouble last time. Moreover, they did not ask for any benefits except for the interest.
