The reason being it was a mocking smile, and it puzzled both Wardell and Joel.
Levi opened the door and got out. “I don’t need any of you to tell me what to do.”
With that, he slammed the door of the car that was worth millions as hard as he could.
Wardell and Joel turned to stare at each other.
“Did he just reject our offer?” Wardell could not believe what was happening.
“So, we’re playing this the hard way, eh?” Joel immediately chased after Levi and stopped him. “Stop right there!”
“Are you sure you want to refuse our offer? Either you’re our friend or you’re our enemy. If you choose to be the latter, you’ll meet your maker soon enough.”
Joel’s threat was clear. If Levi refused to agree to their terms, his life would be in danger.
“Do whatever you want. Your threat means nothing to me.”
It was Levi’s turn to hold his laughter back. Not only had he dealt with Kurt, President of the South Hampton Chamber of Commerce, he’d also taken down most of the big shots in South City.
He could not believe that even after that amazing feat, there would still be some mindless people trying to mess with him.
Yet, dealing with businessmen was a different problem. If one messed with their interest, they would retaliate even worse than the underworld.
Moreover, the South City Chamber of Commerce represented all of the businessmen in South City. To them, the three hundred billion that Levi was charged to distribute belonged to these businessmen.
If Levi decided to attract businesses from other regions, their profit would be affected. If things got out of hand, the business owners would retaliate.
Levi finally understood the reason Tim assigned him to handle the investment conference.
The local businesses had contributed a lot to the development of South City, which led to an ease in related policies. As things went on, the South City Chamber of Commerce became the organization in charge of local businesses.
It was the same situation with Triple Group robbing Scott of his money. It was impossible for Tim to stay calm at that incident, but the Triple Group did contribute a lot to society and it would put him in an awkward position if he were to accuse them openly.
It explained why Tim let Levi handled the situation. He hoped that the young man could solve the problem in his place and cleanse the local business circle at the same time.
“You leave us with no choice then!” Joel roared.
For the next few days, Levi was followed by Joel’s people. Since he didn’t want to waste time on some nobodies, the God of War decided to ignore them.
For the time being, Levi still stayed in the Guardian Mansion and Joel’s men found out about it.
“Now that we know where he lives, it’s time to show him some colors!” Wardell grinned and ordered Joel. “Get it done! I want him to come and beg for forgiveness tomorrow!”
