Ever since the previous incident, there was a knot in William’s heart. Something was bothering him, and he was constantly trying to make trouble for Zayn!
Despite his efforts, he could not find the opportunity to do so all this while and was growing increasingly frustrated. As a result, he went there to drink his troubles away and bumped into Howard unexpectedly. Frankly, he had almost forgotten about Howard. Seeing him now, he was immediately reminded of Faye.
Then, his mind began to churn as well. Why had he not begun his plan with Faye first?
For the past two days, the image of Zayn spending time together with Alexandra filled his thoughts. He had almost lost his mind because of it. Every time he thought about it, he felt uneasy and ill. If it was true, he could totally see himself giving Zayn a dose of his own medicine. In addition, Faye was one of the three prettiest women in Waltz City. Her beauty and appearance were certainly not inferior to Alexandra’s. He let Faye off earlier for the sake of Nathan. Now, he had adequate reason to seek revenge on Zayn and believed that Nathan would not oppose either even if he were to know!
In just a few short seconds, William came up with something. He looked toward Howard like he was happy to see him. He waved his hand and said, “It’s you, Mr. Carter. Come, come, have a drink on me.”
Howard was pleased when William called him ‘Mr. Carter’. He was so excited because it was William’s first time addressing him so respectfully. It was an honor!
“You flatter me, you flatter me really, Mr. Brown. You’re too courteous. Just call me Howard.” Howard raised and clinked his glass with William’s to express his esteem.
After a few drinks, both of them were in a more relaxed, pleasant mood and began engaging in a conversation.
William inquired about Faye’s recent update with a purpose. Howard was already resentful, so he began blabbering about the recent events. “Mr. Brown, I’m furious now that you brought this up! Faye has actually been promoted to our company’s chairman. She is so powerful now that she kicked a few of our company’s founders out of the board of directors including me!”
“That can’t be, right? I thought your company was about to go out of business, no? How did Faye get promoted to chairman?” William was rather astonished. He had dug into Neotech Co. before and found that the company was rapidly heading for bankruptcy. He wondered how Faye landed herself the chairman’s position?
Howard downed half a glass of whiskey and said, “It was all that f*ck*r Zayn’s fault. I don’t know he got so f*ck*ng lucky that he was acquainted with Violet Vision’s chairman and managed to borrow 15 million dollars from him. The money was invested into Neotech and now Faye holds more than 50% of the company’s shares. She has the final say for the entire company now!”
Upon hearing that, there was a glint in William’s eyes as if he was thinking about something. He immediately recalled witnessing Zayn driving his car into Violet Vision Tower when he followed him the other day. At that time, he was wondering if Zayn was working there. Judging by the situation, had Zayn formed a friendship with the mysterious chairman of Violet Vision’s chairman?
He cursed to himself.
Could it be that his only choice now was to let Zayn off?
Frankly, he refused to accept his defeat without putting up a fight!
Zayn had had an affair with his woman. If he were to let him off so easily, his reputation in his social circle would be ruined. He had to get vengeance!
The idea grew in his mind and it was getting out of hand.
He placed a hand on Howard’s shoulder and stared straight into his eyes before saying, “Mr. Carter, would you like to get revenge? Would you like to take back what you’ve lost?”
Howard said without the slightest hesitation, “I do!”
Under the effect of the alcohol, his eyes were bloodshot and his breathing was getting heavier.
William cracked into a devilish smile and leaned close to Howard’s ear, whispering something in secret. Upon hearing that, Howard’s originally glossy eyes quickly regained some clarity. Moreover, he gulped and said, “Mr. Brown, that’s not very nice, isn’t it? She’s still my cousin regardless.”
“What’s not nice about it? Think about this, did Faye treat you like her cousin when she kicked you out of the board of directors?” William spoke with a bewitching voice, “In addition, there’ll be no evidence, so it won’t endanger you in any other way. Here, I shall pay you 460 thousand dollars from my own pocket when the plan has been successfully executed, what do you think?”
Four hundred and sixty thousand dollars!
Howard’s heart was racing at once.
