The tycoons in Joules Town’s business circle were frantic.
Nor have the lives of many ordinary people in Joules Town been calm for two days. The collapse of Billion Trees Real Estate was final. Besides that, word of its end had already got out.
Billion Trees Real Estate had been in Joules Town for years. They had dozens of properties. Most of them had been completed, but there were still three buildings in construction. Two of the buildings were half a year behind the completion date stated on the contracts.
In short, Billion Trees Real Estate was closely related to many people. It was a big company with hundreds and even thousands of employees. There was also the issue of workers’ wages and late delivery to unit owners.
Apart from issues like taxes and those related to the government aside, these issues alone were enough to have one’s hands full.
However, the unit owners got more nervous when the news about Billion Trees Real Estate’s shareholder change and its chairman’s arrest broke.
They had already delayed the units’ delivery for half a year. Now that Billion Trees Real Estate’s chairman was arrested, the construction of the buildings would be further delayed. Therefore, many people gathered at the Billion Trees Real Estate building.
However, there were still seal tapes around Billion Trees Real Estate’s headquarters. Even if they were here, there was nothing they could do.
But, these people were here to make an impact. Only with greater influence could their problems be taken seriously.
More and more unit owners, migrant workers, and some Billion Trees Real Estate employees had gathered here. They got together and said all kinds of things. The impact was bound to take up a lot of public resources.
Johnson was the first to lose his composure. He called Leonardo immediately.
“Didn’t you say you could fix it? Is this how you fix it? How far have you gotten?” Johnson sounded a little edgy.
“I said one day. Tomorrow. What’s your hurry?” Leonardo was calm, his tone was also unhurried.
It was as if he already had a solution to the problem.
Johnson was briefly silent on the phone.
“Paul, let me tell you something honestly. If you can’t do it, don’t pretend you can. Don’t waste each other’s time. It’s not good for you or Joules Town if this continues.” Johnson’s tone was persuasive after being silent for a moment.
He still thought Leonardo was too young and took things too simply. It was unrealistic for him to expect Leonardo to solve these things. Johnson did not even know why he said yes to Milos. Now that he thought about it, he regretted it.
“I can fix it.” Leonardo frowned slightly and replied indifferently, not wanting to explain anything to Johnson.
“How are you going to fix it? I’d like to hear about it,” Johnson immediately asked Milos.
“I have my ways, of course. Just watch,” Leonardo said and hung up.
Johnson on the other end of the line was mad. Even Zane was afraid to hang up on him. Leonardo had no manners.
However, Leonardo did not have time to worry about what Johnson was thinking. He was busy fixing tables and chairs for the orphanage children.
Lydia stood aside and looked at Leonardo with the hammer with mixed feelings.
Leonardo once served as a nine-star commander, and his hands were to fight enemies with the Guardian Sword. He held the hammer like a carpenter, banging against the tables and chairs. There were even two little children nearby, handing him nails.
Looking at Leonardo’s seriousness, Lydia was in between laughter and tears. He wanted Leonardo to take a break, and Leonardo refused straight out.
“Brother, have a drink…” Caitlyn brought Leonardo a cup of coffee and said with a smile.
Seeing that Leonardo’s hands were busy, she held the coffee cup to Leonardo’s mouth. Then she took out a tissue and wiped Leonardo’s forehead. Her attentiveness made them look like a loving couple.
“Commander, why are you not worried at all?” Lydia stepped forward and asked with a whisper when Caitlyn was gone.
“What’s the hurry? A watched pot never boils.” Leonardo sternly hammered the nail in front of him without looking back.
“But…” Lydia scratched his head, still unsure.
“Look, even if I panic, I still need to hammer the nail in one by one,” Leonardo whispered back after finishing hammering a nail.
“Well… Yes…” Lydia was silent for two seconds before nodding gently.
As a soldier, Lydia had a lot of patience. Without patience on the battlefield, it was easy to lose the initiative and having the enemy lead him by the nose. However, the patience level also depended on the time, occasion, and situation.
Sometimes, the timing on the battlefield could change instantly. Once he missed it, it would be hard to get another chance like that.
Although the business world was said to be like a war zone, it was still essentially different. If the immediate problem was not solved in time, it would only intensify. Sometimes, a small problem could grow into a big problem. That was why Lydia was eager.
“How’s Jeffrey?” Leonardo asked as he put away his hammer and sat up straight.
“Everything you asked has been taken care of.” Lydia quickly lowered his head and reported.
“Good… Now, do one more thing.” Leonardo shook his wrist and told Lydia what to do next.
“What?” Lydia’s eyes slowly widened again.
However, he was shocked at the intensity of Leonardo’s plan. He was greatly confused. He even thought Leonardo’s move was a little crazy.
However, he double-checked and made sure Leonardo was not joking. He was going to do it.
