Chapter 286 The Stake Is Still Not Enough
After ending the call, Finnegan didn’t ask Alisha to give him a ride. Instead, he took a taxi to Firebird Group.
When he arrived, it was still working hours, so he decided to wait downstairs.
When it was almost time to get off work, he sent a message to Bernice, saying that he had already arrived at the ground floor of Firebird Group office.
A few minutes after the message was sent. Bernice appeared where he was,
Seeing Bernice come down so quickly, Finnegan was taken aback and walked over. “Darling, do you really miss me that much? Isn’t there still more than ten minutes before you finish work?”
Bernice’s face turned red.
waiting to cl that I missed you. It’s just that I’ve finished all my work for today and I’m just
It was clear at a glance that Bernice was lying.
However. Finnegan didn’t expose it. “In that case, are we going with your parents?”
“Tonight, it’s just you and me. My parents won’t be coming.”
Upon hearing this, Finnegan furrowed his brows. “They’re not?”
He had assumed that all members of the Zimmerman family members would be present for the dinner Bruce invited him to that night. Unexpectedly. Patrick and Jennifer decided not to attend.
It felt a bit odd to him, for they were Bernice’s parents after all.
Bernice said, “Grandma called to say that the purpose of tonight’s dinner is to apologize to you, so it would be awkward if my parents went to Uncle Bishop’s house. Plus, my dad has a social engagement tonight. and my mom has plans to go shopping with someone, so it’s just you and me going.”
“Are you worried about causing embarrassment for your uncle’s family?”
With a nod, Bernice said, “Uncle Bishop’s family has always harbored ill intentions toward us. Aunt Sapphire even repeatedly picked fights with my mom Now that they want to apologize to you, perhaps. they don’t want my parents to be present!”
It seemed to make sense after hearing Bernice’s explanation, but Finnegan still felt that something was off.
If they’re going to apologize, does it really matter if there’s anyone around to witness it? Doesn’t it seem more sincere
when there’s someone present?
Seeing the joy on Bernice’s face, Finnegan didn’t voice his doubts. “Let’s go then.”
“Wait for a moment. I’ll go get the car.”
Bernice replied briefly before heading toward the parking lot.
No sooner had she walked away than Finnegan’s phone began to ring. It was Hailey calling-
Upon realizing that Bernice was out of earshot, Finnegan put the phone to his car. Immediately, the excited voice of Hailey was heard, “After seeing the deaths of three collateral descendants of the Sable family, Reginald fell into a dilemma and then increased his offer. He is willing to give up twenty-five percent of the shares in Regi Group in exchange for their lives.”
After hearing this. Finnegan remained largely unfazed, his tone even more icy, “What are you so happy about?
Hailey was taken aback. “Mr. Larkin, the Sable family owns thirty-seven percent of Regi Group’s shares. Giving up twenty percent would mean losing control. Isn’t that enough?”
It meant that Finnegan would be the largest shareholder of Regi Group moving forward.
Finnegan glanced at the setting sun in the distance. “You’re pretty familiar with the Sable family, aren’t you!
Hailey didn’t know why Finnegan was asking this, but she didn’t dare to question him. “I am.” she said.
Finnegan sneered. “It seems that three deaths are still not enough. Among the remaining members of the Sable family, pick out those you despise and those who have committed wrongdoings, and then kill them all! As for the res, don’t worry about it. Let Reginald figure it out on his own.”
After he finished, Finnegan hung up the phone because Bernice had already driven over.
Hailey, who had been hung up on, stood dazed in the Sable family’s garden for a few minutes before she regained her senses.
Her face turned pale, while her palms were sweating with anxiety. “Could I have guessed wrong? Mr. Larkin wants Regi Group, but is it more than just a simple controlling stake he’s after?”
With this thought, Hailey felt a chill run through her. She dared not waste any more time.
She summoned the elite of the Wahlstrom family to pull out five collateral descendants of the Sable family
These were the usually arrogant individuals who relied on the backing of the Sable family to act with impunity. Hailey had long resented them.
Their cries subsequently alerted Reginald.
Looking significantly older, he leaned on his cane and made his way to the door.
Upon seeing another live descendants of the Sable family being dragged out, Reginald angrily questioned. “Hailey, what are you trying to do? Haven’t you already taken out three of them?”
Hailey wanted to say something, but then she remembered Finnegan’s instruction to let Reginald figure it
out on his own.
So, Hailey acted as if she hadn’t heard him and ordered. “Kill them and clean up the mess.”
Reginald’s face drastically changed. “Stop!”
The elite warriors of the Wahlstrom family had already drawn their blades, slaying five members of the Sable family.
This immediately filled Reginald with immense grief and anger. “What on earth does Finnegan want to do? Haven’t I already given up twenty-five percent of my shares to save my life?”
Adhering to Finnegan’s wishes, Hailey didn’t respond. istead, she headed straight for the pavilion in the garden.
The elite of the Wahlstrom family swiftly dealt with the five members of the Sable family they had slain, leaving behind vivid traces of blood.
After witnessing the slaughter of eight of his Sable family descendants in succession, Reginald could no longer bear the mental strain.
He collapsed onto the ground, his old face streaking with tears. “Finnegan, what do you really want? What is it that you want?
At the same time. his heart was brimming with regrets
If he could do it all over again, he would rather kill Liam with his own hands than ever fall out with Finnegan.
Unfortunately, it was impossible to turn back time. At that moment. he had to come up with the best solution to protect the last members of the Sable family.
Otherwise, the moment the sun set, the entire Sable family would be slaughtered.
If a twenty-five percent stake isn’t enough, then what is?
The agonized Reginald lifted his gaze toward the distant sunset. In his eyes, it seemed like the death knell counting down to the end of the Sable family.
The events that transpired in the Sable family’s garden were also relayed to the Wright family through a
Keeping a close eye on how Finnegan was dealing with the Sable family, Nathan sighed lightly. “Just as I suspected, this young man Finnegan never intended to truly let the Sable family off the hook. He’s already armilated right of them!”
Stephen asked, “Grandpa, what should we do? If things continue this way, the Sable family will be wiped our by user
Nathan closed his eyes in deep thought
Stephen, who was beat to him, didn’t disturb him, for he knew that Nathan was thinking of a solution.
After a long while, just as the aun was about to completely set, leaving only half of it visible, Nathan opened his eyes and said, “I think I know what Finnegan is planning to do
“What is he going to do
Nathan, who had already seen through the situation, replied, “He intends to completely dismantle the Sable family from the ground up, ensuring that even if the Sable family members are alive, they will not longer be able to stir up any trouble, let alone influence Jadeborough’s economy. This will provide a sense of security for him, as well as for our family!”
Upon hearing this, Stephen was somewhat confused. “Grandpa, could you explain it a bit more clearly?”
Nathan threw the question back at him. “How is the equity structure of the Wright family distributed?”
Even though Stephen was curious about Nathan’s question, he didn’t inquire about the reason. Instead, he answered, “Before Regi Group went public. Reginald made a decision to ensure the Sable family’s position in the group. He decided on a dual-class share structure. This means that there are a hundred percent of the shares and a hundred percent of the management rights. The hundred percent of management rights are in the hands of the Sable family, so even if the Sable family only holds one percent of the shares, Regi Group is still under their control…
At this point, Stephen had an epiphany. “Grandpa, could it be that what Finnegan wants is…”
