Hannah’s mother was indeed not the kind to get along with. She disliked Warren for being too unmanly and divorced. She didn’t share any property when they divorced.
Over the years, she had worked hard in Rikkus alone and had gained a lot of fame and fortune. Most importantly, her mother made her fortune by relying on her fists. It was not easy for a woman to get to the top by force!
After listening to Hannah’s mother’s experience, Milos was surprised. Barne didn’t expect his future mother–in–law to be so fierce!
However, he was not worried. Barne and Hannah got along well, so it was inevitable to meet the parents. Barne had to get past his mother–in–law sooner or later.
“You must pay attention to your safety recently. If there is anything wrong, contact me at any time,” Milos said to Wendy before the banquet ended.
“There will be great benefits. And they’ve got the bad-ass, James. They will use humanitarian destruction if they have no choice. So spend more money to hire a few more professional bodyguards. I will help you fix the rest.”
Listening to Milos’s advice, Wendy nodded slightly. She knew how dangerous the business battle would be.
Natasha would use illegal means to solve the problem when she had no way out. However, Wendy had experienced many similar things, but it would be more dangerous this time.
Watching everyone disperse, Natasha ordered calmly, “Starting tomorrow, increase efforts and funds to attack Giradia Group’s stocks and all projects with all its strength!”
“Yes, Ms. Porter!” Everyone immediately responded to Natasha’s order.
The 10 billion, more or less, brought a little pressure on Natasha.
“Milos is capable! I thought he was good, but he asked me to beg him on the bed? Ridiculous!” Natasha sneered, turned to Jade, and said.
Jade frowned slightly but did not speak.
Natasha asked, “Why don’t you speak? Jade?”
Jade shook his head and said, “I always thought things wouldn’t be that simple!”
“What’s not simple?” asked Natasha.
“It was too calm…” Jade said softly, “Everything was calm, no matter Wendy or Milos…”
“Maybe they just don’t know what it is. They don’t know how powerful the Porter Group alliance is!” Natasha sneered.
Porter Group alliance had massive financial support and many local entrepreneurs from Neva Province. Besides, Natasha got support from the government. So Giradia Group couldn’t win.
Jade said calmly, “We underestimated Milos before. And he announced he would invest 10 billion in Giradia Group…”
“Let’s continue underestimating him. Will he take another 10 billion?”
“If there is another 10 billion investment, our chances of winning this business war will be lowered.”
Natasha shook her head and said, “Do you think 10 billion is Zimbabwean currency and easy to get? Moreover, judging from our current background, they need at least 30 billion to defeat us. They will never crush us without more than 30 billion!”
“I don’t believe Milos can get so much money for Wendy.”
Jade said slowly, “I hope so… You want a piece of Giradia Group, but you also get stuck before you know it. I don’t know whether it is good for you. Once you fail, it will be the end of eternity….”
Natasha smiled and said, “Failure? You’re wrong. There is no failure in my dictionary.”
“You are too proud,” said Jade.
Natasha said, “Yes, but I will never be careless. Wendy is a very strong opponent.”
Jade didn’t go on talking but felt something was wrong. Her uneasiness came from Milos and Wendy’s calmness from the beginning to the end. They were not fools, either Rudolph or Walter. They knew how much money Giradia Group needed!
Moreover, Negino had withdrawn the capital before Walter, saying it was a shortage of funds and he needed to take it back for turnover.
Everything was strange.
Maybe I overthink. No matter how powerful Milos is, he can’t get 20 or 30 billion, right? After all, it’s not Zimbabwean or Venezuelan currency!
Jade laughed at herself.
There could be a 10 billion face value in Zimbabwe and Venezuela. Money was of little value in those countries.
On the way back, Milos and Hannah saw Natalie’s car parked by the side of the road.
“Why is she parked here? Is there something wrong. I’ll go and see.” Milos frowned and stopped the car.
“Okay,” Hannah thought they should have a look.
It turned out that something was wrong with Natalie’s car, and she couldn’t drive. Barne stopped and called someone to fix it. But it was late. She had been waiting a long, but no one came.
Milos said, “Let me help you. It shouldn’t be a big problem.”
Just as Natalie wanted to refuse, Milos lifted the hood and soon found out the reason.
“The thread is loose. Just need to twist it.” Milos reached in and twisted the screw, fixing it even without a wrench.
Natalie tried to start. And it was all right.
Hannah smiled and said, “Natalie, you saved much money for repairs and the tow truck!”
Natalie also smiled but in an unnatural way.
She waved her hand and said, “My family has been calling me. See you later. And thank you!”
Then she stepped on the gas. The car sped off so fast. She left so fast, as if she panicked.
“How could I meet them…” Natalie was uncomfortable, feeling something was lost.
For no reason, she remembered the classic line about 10 thousand years in a film.
“I have no relationship with him. Why talk about 10 thousand years? Let it go.” Natalie directly wiped away the disappointment and drove the car faster and faster.
Natalie was not the only one who felt strange. Milos was more moved by the famous poem. “Long gone are the days when we first met.”
How the hell was it so easy… Go to hell with the first meet!
Milos drove Hannah all the way back. They didn’t talk much. It suddenly became awkward for no reason.
Hannah felt maybe she should confess to Milos. After all, he and Natalie’s breaking up had a lot to do with her hiding a lot of information.
