Chapter 293 The Decision Is Yours
Finnegan rose to his feet with a smile and walked toward the exit. “Who I am doesn’t matter. What’s important is that you remember that from now on, the Sable family is subordinate to me, Finnegan. Make sure not to harbor any ill intentions toward your master!”
Watching Finnegan’s departing figure, Reginald thought about the trip he took to Durbaine with Mike a few days ago. Could it be that not being able to meet Mr. Darius Hicks was also his arrangement?
The thought of that possibility sent a shiver through Reginald’s heart.
The resentment, hatred, and frustration originally felt toward Finnegan gradually dissipated.
He even felt that the outcome might not necessarily be a bad thing.
“Is that it?” Outside, Alisha, who had just seen off the lawyer, was returning.
Finnegan shrugged. “What else can we do?”
After some thought, Alisha nodded. “That’s true. Liam is already dead, but Reginald didn’t hire the sniper. Now that he has handed over nearly ninety percent of the Sable family’s assets, there’s indeed no need for you to continue this dispute.”
Stretching lazily, Finnegan walked past Alisha and said, “The Sable family has deep roots in Regi Group. I need their help for a smooth transition so that I don’t have to listen to Old Mr. Wright’s nagging again.”
Alisha hummed and asked, “What’s next?”
“The Sable family aren’t fools, they won’t stir up trouble again. They’ll withdraw their people and search for that sniper. That’s the real danger. Make additional arrangements. The nominal management of Regi Group must still be a member of the Sable family. Have Reginald recommend a suitable representative!”
That was the only way Finnegan could stabilize the over ten thousand employees of Regi Group and avoid any turbulence.
Moreover, Finnegan could also comfortably hide behind the scene, avoiding unnecessary attention.
Alisha nodded. “Understood!”
The night passed swiftly.
The news of the change in the Sable family’s leadership did not leak out, as if this event had never happened at all.
Whether it was the elite circle or the common people, everyone continued with their own lives.
The news was suddenly released by Darius, the chairman of Loang Medical Council, and caused a minor
Regi Group’s original intention to provide free medical care was commendable. It benefited many people in need, allowing them to receive treatment even if they didn’t have the money.
The benevolent actions of Regi Group severely disrupted the medical market, causing many patients who
needed timely treatment to miss their optimal treatment window while waiting for free medical care.
That even led some patients to travel great distances to Jadeborough, despite their illnesses and injuries, which only worsened their conditions.
This deviated from the principle of providing free medical care for the benefit of the public.
In addition, there were also those tricksters, pretending to be sick when they were perfectly healthy, just to
medicine. That wasted valuable medical resources.
Hence, Loang Medical Council made a decision. Regi Group’s practice of offering free medical consultations could no longer be implemented on a large scale and had to cease immediately.
Following the announcement from Loang Medical Council, Regi Group released a statement saying that Regi Group deeply regretted the cessation of free medical consultations. However, Regi Group’s original intention to benefit the public remained unchanged. Therefore, the group decided to provide a hundred free treatment slots every month for those with serious illnesses aimed at helping those in need.
Upon the release of this news, not only did Regi Group avoid any negative impact from the suspension of free medical services, but it also directly eliminated the negative public opinion previously caused by Liam. This allowed Regi Group to directly weather a crisis that could have potentially been devastating.
However, as the initiator, Finnegan didn’t pay much attention to it. After having breakfast in the morning. he dialed Bernice’s number.
He wanted to check if Millicent and others had given Bernice a hard time after he left the night before.
The phone rang for a while before it was finally answered. Bernice’s languid voice came through. “What’s up?”
“D*mn! Should we go to a hotel or come to my place?”
After a three-second silence, Bernice’s voice, shy to the extreme, came through the phone. “You’re so mean, thinking of mischief so early in the morning.”
Finnegan chuckled. “There’s no wrong time to tease one’s own wife. Besides, morning is when a man’s energy is at its peak and at its best. I think it’s the perfect time for some mischief. It even sets a good mood for the entire day.”
Bernice was never one to talk like that.
Seeing red, she roared, “Stop talking. Why are you calling me so early in the morning?”
Finnegan chuckled, deciding not to tease Bernice any further. “You’re still at the Zimmerman residence, right? Did your grandma give you any trouble after I left last night?”
“Yes: I’m still here,” Bernice replied. “They haven’t given me a hard time. Aunt Sapphire and Queenie even invited me to go shopping with them since it’s Saturday
Finnegan’s brows slightly furrowed when he heard that
If it weren’t for what happened the night before, he wouldn’t have given it much thought. He would simply believe that the Zimmerman family had truly changed,
Considering what happened the night before, Finnegan found hind it hard to believe that they cared about Bernice. “Darling, I didn’t want to shatter your beautiful illusions about family, but I think it’s necessary for you to see their true colors. I hope you won’t be fooled.”
Hearing Finnegan’s serious tone, Bernice asked, “What’s wrong?”
“I’m sending you a voice message. Whether you keep it as leverage or let your grandpa know, the decision is yours.”
After hanging up the phone, Finnegah sent the recording from the night before to Bernice.
He didn’t intend to stir up chaos within the Zimmerman family. His sole purpose was to keep Bernice vigilant toward her own family members.
Ten minutes later, Bernice returned the call. “Finnegan, is this really true?”
Finnegan knew that Bernice was feeling upset, but he also understood that she had to face reality. “Your grandma and the others were unusually friendly last night, which made me suspicious. So, I pretended to be drunk to see what they were up to. As I suspected, they weren’t genuinely apologizing to me. They just wanted to get Queenie to sleep with me, to break us apart!”
There was a moment of silence on the other end of the phone before Bernice’s voice came through. “What do you think I should do? Should I give this recording to Grandpa?”
Finnegan couldn’t help but smile. “Darling, I actually wish you would hand it over to your grandpa to directly quell the voices against you within the Zimmerman family. But I know you can’t do it, so why bother asking me?”
The night before, after teaching Queenie a lesson, Finnegan left, clearly understanding Bernice’s character.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have reprimanded Queenie. He would have simply handed over the recording to Bruce, letting Millicent and the rest of them face the consequences.
Bernice said, “Thank you, Finnegan. But did you do something cunning last night? From the analysis of the recording, it seems that Queenie and you were naked!”
The corners of Finnegan’s mouth twitched, his mood instantly becoming tense.
However, he maintained a calm tone when he replied, I definitely didn’t do anything. I was just trying to catch them in the act for you last night. What could I possibly do? And didn’t you hear what I said in the recording? Didn’t you hear Queenie’s angry retort?”
Bernice hummed in response and said, “That seems to be the case. However, you were naked in bed with Queenie just because you wanted to catch my grandma and the others. I’ll remember this. Sooner or later, I’ll settle the score with you.”
After saying her piece, Bernice hung up the phone, not even giving Finnegan a chance to argue.
Finnegan found himself both helpless and relieved.
He felt helpless because Bernice was bothered by the fact that Queenie was naked in bed with him.
At the same time, he was relieved because he hadn’t handed over the recording to Bruce the night before.
If he had, Queenie would have definitely given up hope and acted recklessly,
“Thank goodness my wife thought as I did and didn’t consider giving the recording to her grandpa. So, Queenie, knowing I still have the recording, has no choice but to swallow the bitter pill in silence. Besides, now that my wife has this bargaining chip, that old woman and her lot should behave themselves, right?” Finnegan muttered to himself.
