Chapter 453 Doing Whatever It Took
The Gasse family held a lot of influence in Dhord City, and they owned businesses in Enies as well.
Zayn knew he could stop Southlake Corporation from breaking into Enies‘ business market.
He didn’t think a nobody from Southlake City like Caspian could do anything in Dhord City. In this day and age, connections were of the utmost importance. Without them, it was too hard. for one to establish oneself in a new place.
“That’s such a great plan, Mr. Gasse!” Ginger acclaimed.
Southlake Corporation wanted to expand its business in the northern region of Diatoran, but if the company failed at Enies, it wouldn’t be able to go any further.
The company would have to withdraw from Enies with its tail between its legs
Ginger despised Caspian with every fiber of her being. He had humiliated her countless times, and thanks to him, her relationship with Jyn deteriorated.
She dared not even n speak freely in front of Jyn anymore, lest she got into trouble for saying the wrong thing.
That was the reason why Ginger immediately turned to Zayn. She got a good read on him.
Zayn was the scion of a wealthy family, and he would never let someone who slapped him in public get away so easily.
As long as he took action, getting rid of Caspian wouldn’t be a problem at all.
“You little slut! Don’t forget what you said. If I kick Caspian out of Dhord City, I want Jyn!” Zac said with a sly smirk as he clutched Ginger by the chin.
Ginger squirmed as she said shyly, “Will I get something, too?”
“Of course!” Zayn declared before pulling her close.
“Not here, Mr. Gasse. What if someone sees us?” Ginger exclaimed as she flushed scarlet. She was still a virgin, but she was willing to do whatever it took to get her revenge.
“Hahaha! No one barges into my villa without permission. Come. I’m going to have fun with you today!”
“You’re so mean, Mr. Gasse, but I like it!”
And so, right there in the living room, the two of them…
Over at Enies‘ licensing department, a pot–bellied man with slicked–back hair was on the phone.
“Rest assured, Mr. Gasse. Without my approval, Southlake Corporation won’t be able to open a branch office here!” Chadwick Sheehan declared with a chuckle.
Although he was merely the director of the city’s licensing department, he wield
a fair amount of power. Anyone who wanted to start a company in Enies had to be approved by him.
Nevertheless, Chadwick was respectful when he spoke to Zayn. Compared to the Gasse family’s son, he was merely an insignificant speck of dust.
When the call ended, Chadwick’s assistant came in and said, “The marketing manager from Southlake Corporation would like to see you, Mr. Sheehan.”
Chadwick smirked. He didn’t expect someone from Southlake Corporation to come over so soon, but it was the perfect chance for him to put them in their place.
“Send him in,” Chadwick instructed as he lit up a cigarette.
“Got it, Mr. Sheehan.”
His assistant backed out of the office, and Landon came in soon after.
“It’s nice to meet you, Mr. Sheehan. I’m Landon Rowe, the marketing manager for Southlake Corporation,” Landon greeted with a smile.
Landon was a long–time employee of Southlake Corporation. He knew that it was often challenging to deal with such government departments. He needed to keep Chadwick happy if he wanted to get his approval for the branch office.
Thus, he was very polite with Chadwick.
“Do you want something?” Chadwick asked, looking up at Landon.
“Mr. Sheehan, Southlake Corporation wishes to open a branch office here in Enies, and to do so, we’ll need you to sign-”
Landon was halfway through when Chadwick shook his head and said, “I’m afraid that won’t be easy. Enies is an important area in Dhord City. Many companies wish to break into the business market here, so we’re very strict with our licensing.”
Landon was startled. He had already completed all the necessary procedures. All that was left. was getting Chadwick’s signature.
However, Chadwick’s response showed that he wanted to make things difficult for Landon!
Still, Landon wasn’t surprised by this. It was not his first time encountering such a situation. It simply meant the other party was expecting some sort of kickback.
“I know it’s not easy for you, Mr. Sheehan. As a gesture of my goodwill…”
Trailing off, Landon took out a stack of money.
“What do you mean by this?” Chadwick jumped to his feet and growled in fury. “Are your trying to offend me? I work for the government! I’ll never do such underhanded things! Get out right now! I’ll never approve your application.
“This is the kind of company you people are running, huh? Well, don’t even think about
establishing yourselves here in Enies!”
Landon was dumbfounded. He was merely attempting to grease Chadwick’s fingers. Why did Chadwick blow his top?
“You’ve misunderstood me, Mr. Sheehan …”
“Get out right this instant, or I’m calling security!”
Chadwick made a shooing gesture with his hand to chase Landon out of his office.
Landon’s expression darkened.
He got the picture now. Chadwick was purposely picking on Southlake Corporation. No matter how much money he offered, Chadwick wasn’t going to budge.
“I hope you won’t end up regretting your actions today, Mr. Sheehan! Southlake Corporation isn’t a company you can toy with! Sooner or later, you’ll come begging for mercy!” Landon
He was no pushover. Enraged by Chadwick’s attitude, he marched out of the office. Since Chadwick was clearly trying to make things difficult for him, there was no reason for him to stick around any longer.
Landon believed that Caspian could certainly resolve such challenges.
Chadwick scoffed as he shot Landon a disdainful glare.
“Without Mr. Gasse’s permission, Southlake Corporation will never establish themselves here! As long as I stay firm on this, Mr. Gasse will definitely reward me. Maybe I’ll even get a promotion,” Chadwick remarked with a smug smile.
He leaned back against his chair with a carefree smile.
After leaving the licensing department, Landon was still so furious that he couldn’t stop shaking.
He couldn’t believe that Chadwick, who was merely the director of the licensing department, had the nerve to be that arrogant with him!
Landon was also rather panicked. Willow was coming over in a few days. If he didn’t get
Nevertheless, he couldn’t think of a way to deal with this situation himself, so he had to turn to Caspian for help.
“I’m so sorry, Mr. Lynch!” Landon said remorsefully.
He felt sorry for letting Caspian down when the latter had placed such high hopes on him.
“It’s not your fault. I didn’t expect a government official to be so corrupt,” Caspian said.
He thought Southlake Corporation would have no trouble establishing themselves in Enies.
Who would have thought that the city’s licensing department was going to get in their way?
Did they think Southlake Corporation could be bullied like that?
Caspian could easily turn the entire Dhord City upside down with just a single order, but he didn’t want to make a big fuss.
As the Diatoranian God of War, it would be far beneath him to be so petty with someone who was merely the director of the licensing department.
Landon exhaled in relief when he found that Caspian wasn’t upset.
“Don’t worry. As long as you do your job properly, I’ll make sure it’s worth your while. Just focus on your responsibilities. I’ll handle everything else,” Caspian assured with a smile.
“Yes, Mr. Lynch! I’ll give it my all!” Landon declared.
Without wasting any more time, Caspian left with Sylvia.
Anyone who dared to mess with him must have a death wish!
