It seemed that Pierre was openly provoking Zoey, who decided to agree generously, “Helena, that’s an offer you should definitely consider.”
“Do you see how understanding Ms. Lopez is, Helena? Come, join us,” continued Pierre as he laughed at Zoey’s response.
“Thank you for the offer, but I’ll stay.”
Helena had sworn that she would stay at the Oriental Star Group unless Levi and Zoey asked her to leave.
“Then, you better not regret that decision!” threatened Pierre in front of everyone.
Seeing how arrogantly Pierre acted as a superior, Zoey could only imagine how ‘humble’ Star Entertainment’s stars and online celebrities could be.
Obviously, the group from Star Entertainment did not come over to visit but to show off and challenge Oriental.
After the tour, Pierre inconsiderately smoked a cigar in the reception room.
“There’s something I have to tell you, Ms. Lopez.”
Zoey was starting to lose her patience with Pierre.
“I plan to acquire the entertainment department of your company. What do you think?” asked Pierre as he smoked his cigar, choking Zoey and making her cough.
“An acquisition? That’s not going to happen. We’re doing well, and we have no plans to sell the department,” rejected Zoey, to which Pierre laughed in response, “You don’t understand. You have let it go because I’m the one making the acquisition, and I always get what I want!”
That was how overbearing Pierre was in the South Hampton entertainment industry. It was common for him to make acquisitions and buy copyrights forcibly, which was why people in the industry feared him.
Zoey then smiled in response, “I’m afraid that I can’t just let you have what I want to keep.”
“If you reject me, Ms. Lopez, I promise you that your company will be finished. I’ll make sure that you lose access to every possible resource in this industry!” threatened Pierre boldly.
“You think I’m scared? I’ve seen worse.”
Zoey was determined not to let Pierre have his way.
“Very well. We’ll see about that. Nobody gets far without my say-so!” After issuing his final threat, Pierre got up and walked out of the building, leaving the executives of the Oriental Star Group worried.
“Do you know how many potential entertainment companies Star Entertainment has ruined over the years? We’re in grave danger.”
Even though Zoey was just as aware of how powerful Star Entertainment was, she was not just about to give in to them that easily.
At that moment, Levi came and inquired, “Where are the bunch of arrogant celebrities I’ve heard about?”
He got furious after Seth told him about them. They’re clearly challenging me, and I will not tolerate that.
