Noah wasn’t sure which bodyguard made the first move, but he was knocked to the ground in an instant. He was left fighting for his breath when a foot was pressed up against his face.
As the young master of Park Group, Noah was surrounded and trampled on, which was nothing but an insult for him.
“Mr. Young, save me!” Noah wailed, his head was bleeding from being stepped on.
David said with a serious face, “Mr. Vinogradov, this is Hechland after all, although you are also a distinguished foreign visitor, it is against Hechland’s law to hit others!”
Vinogradov didn’t seem to hear him, but his gaze landed on Leonardo.
Anderson smiled, but he didn’t want David to lose face either, so he said, “Oldman Grapes, let’s forget it!”
Only then did Vinogradov call it off and had his men disperse.
David was dumbfounded, his position as the provincial chief was incomparable to the words that came out of Leonardo.
Noah groaned and trembled in pain as he lay on the ground, clutching his belly. The young master of Park Group was still acting arrogant earlier on, but now, there were footprints all over his body, and his disheveled appearance made him look pitiable.
Vinogradov sighed and said, “Young man, think twice before you act up in future, if not, you’ll be the only one who suffers.”
“Vinogradov, you’ve gone overboard!” Noah said angrily.
Vinogradov replied indifferently, “You’re welcome to get back at me, but I hope you can bear the consequences…”
Noah was left speechless with his response.
Park Group had just started some business in Nievic and had taken over the construction of one of Nievic’s signal infrastructures. The next step was to open factories and so on, and gradually enter Nievic’s market.
If he angered Vinogradov, Park Group would be completely kicked out, and he would probably get severely punished by the higher-ups of Park Group!
Park Group was world-renowned, and every country wanted its investment. But Nievic was different, they were known as a ”fighting nation” and any disagreement with them would only be a slap in the face.
Vinogradov wasn’t bothered by a mere threat from Noah. To him, it was a small issue not even worth mentioning.
“It’s lucky that Mr. Young was here today, if not Oldman Grapes would have beaten you to death,” Anderson said as he smiled at Noah.
Noah was furious, but he was outnumbered.
He was a foreign visitor, yet Anderson managed to invite someone far more powerful and important than him. If he continued acting out, he would probably be beaten to death by Oldman Grapes!
Noah remained silent as he lowered his head.
“What else are you waiting for, get lost. Remember this, Natasha isn’t someone that trash like you can touch, she belongs to me now,” Anderson declared as he condescendingly looked down at the embarrassed Noah.
Without saying a word, Noah got up and left.
“Mr. Park, I’m really sorry about what happened today, but it was Vinogradov who had you beaten up today…” David explained to Noah as he turned around and left.
Compared to Noah, Vinogradov was obviously the one who couldn’t be offended. He may not have as much money as Park Group, but his level of influence was terrifying!
Now that Hechland and Nievic had a collusion of interest, it was hard enough getting around the oligarchs, offending any of them would lead to heavy consequences. For example, almost all of the core parts for Hechland’s new model of the FF-199 fighter jet were imported from Nievic.
Offending the oligarchs, meant that the matter would easily rise to a national level, and no one could afford that.
“Mr. Anderson, I thought it was some serious business, but I didn’t expect it to be such a trivial matter. You didn’t need an old man like me to deal with that small prawn!” Vinogradov said with dissatisfaction.
He felt that it was a waste for Anderson to have called him over for such a small issue.
Anderson smiled helplessly and said, “As a foreign visitor, there was nothing much I could do. If not, I would have long put him in his place.”
Vinogradov replied, “I don’t doubt that your father had already proven that to me, after all.”
Vinogradov had obviously met Nicolas and was impressed by the latter.
“I’m curious, what did Anderson use to impress you that made you give up helping the Porter family? If the Porter family joins forces with you and goes against Gusinski, I’m sure this will undoubtedly be a greater benefit to you, Mr. Vinogradov…”
”Moreover, Gusinski had just paid out fifty billion dollars, so he must be in a tight situation with his funds. This would be the best opportunity,” Natasha spoke in a foreign language with an accent that was slightly worse off than Jessica’s, but still barely noticeable.
Vinogradov replied indifferently, “Are you Natasha from the Porter family? I’ve seen your work, and it’s impressive, but it’s still a little lacking. In fact, whatever the Porter family can provide me, Mr. Evans can too! But what Mr. Evans can provide me, may not be possible for the Porter family.”
“Like what?” Natasha asked.
Vinogradov said, “For example, my life. If Mr. Nicolas hadn’t rescued me, I would have been slaughtered a hundred times over by those b*stards at KGB!”
Anderson suddenly felt that his father was amazing.
After having disappeared for the past few years, he had gone to the Nievic and had even formed good relations with the big oligarch, Vinogradov. Natasha frowned and remained silent.
“How about a drink?” Vinogradov smiled as he asked Leonardo.
“Sure, let’s go!” Anderson replied.
As they were about to leave, Walter’s son Davis casually strolled in. The store manager had already been scared out of his wits before, but upon seeing Davis, he began to tremble once more.
“Shut this place down, I don’t like the manager,” Anderson ordered calmly.
“Yes, Mr. Evans!” Davis replied in a low voice.
He then glanced over at Natasha in shock, as he felt a sense of admiration overwhelm him.
Anderson was a capable man who could even get a woman like Natasha. From now on, the Miller family surely remain loyal to him.
Anderson led Vinogradov to Louies’ bistro, then called him and Beasley to join them.
Beasley was sensible enough, and with just one phone call, he called the girls who had entertained Anderson the last time. What was more, the two who had accompanied Anderson before was left untouched. And for the whole time, he had been financially supporting them as they weren’t allowed to work, but they were still being paid a salary.
Natasha stared at the scene before her in disgust. The smell of cigarettes especially, made her nauseous.
Upon seeing another beautiful woman beside Anderson, Luna frowned and cursed under her breath.
You bastard, I wish that you can’t get it up for the rest of your life!
“Take a seat over there for now, these two girls here will accompany me,” Anderson said with a smile as he told them to sit down beside him.
Natasha sneered at the woman, as she thought that Anderson’s taste was nothing more than trash.
