Chapter 455 Promoting the New Product Range
Chadwick froze when he spotted the smirk on Caspian’s face as the latter looked at him. That bastard had to be the one behind this mess!
He didn’t know who Caspian was, but it was clear that Caspian had connections to the authorities.
“I’ll sign the application, Mr. Lynch!” Chadwick said with an awkward smile.
But Caspian took back the document.
“Now you want to sign it? What a shame. It’s too late!” Caspian remarked as he eyed Chadwick
with an amused smirk.
“Mr. Lynch, what are you…” Chadwick trailed off as he stared at Caspian in confusion.
“I’ve given you enough chances, and now, I don’t need your signature anymore. You’ll be heading off to prison soon!” Caspian said.
Chadwick was dumbfounded..
What was going on? Was he getting arrested? Was there no way out of this, not even if he agreed to sign the application? Was he about to go to prison?
Falling to his knees, he pleaded tearfully, “Please, Mr. Lynch. Please have mercy on me. I’ll sign the application.”
“Why didn’t you do it when I gave you the chance earlier? What’s the point of doing this now? “Caspian asked with a smile.
Banging his head on the floor, Chadwick continued to plead, “I was wrong, Mr. Lynch. I was a blind and ignorant fool. Please have mercy on me.”
It finally dawned on him that he needed to do as told if he wanted to keep his position.
Alas, Chadwick’s reaction disgusted Caspian. It was bastards like Chadwick who polluted Diatoran with their corrupted behavior.
All along, Chadwick acted pompously due to his position. But now that he was getting arrested, he chose to grovel and beg for mercy.
Was there any reason to keep useless waste of spaces like Chadwick around? It was not as if he would contribute to the nation in any way.
“Take him away. Make sure he gets the punishment he deserves!” Caspian said to the men from the Inspector General’s office.
“Got it,” they replied.
One of them brought out a set of handcuffs as they got ready to escort Chadwick away.
Terrified, Chadwick begged, “I was wrong, Mr. Lynch! I know I made a terrible mistake! Please give me another chance! I’m begging you, please!”
Casplan ignored him. He wasn’t going to keep such men around.
The Inspectors started pulling Chadwick toward the door.
“I work for the Gasses! How dare you arrest me?” Chadwick hollered, but his efforts were in vain as the inspectors dragged him out.
Before leaving, one of the inspectors said, “Lord Caspian, the governor has said that you’re free to do whatever you want in Dhord City.”
“Understood,” Caspian replied with a nod.
Caspian and the governor of Dhord City had a fairly good relationship. Even though Southlake Corporation’s application was still unsigned, the governor could settle things out for them with just a simple command.
The next day, a staggering piece of news broke out.
Over 100 government officials in Enies had lost their jobs, and a great majority of them were connected to the Gasse family.
Meanwhile, things were all set for Southlake Corporation’s new branch office in Enies.
Over at Gasse Residence in Dhord City, Zayn had flown into a rage and was now smashing everything he could get his hands on.
“Fucking hell! They’re nothing but a bunch of useless bastards! They couldn’t even stop Southlake Corporation!” Zayn roared.
Even though he had gotten involved, he still failed to impede them.
Furthermore, the people that the Gasses placed in important positions in Enies had all been captured as well.
“Mr. Gasse, Mr. Gasse Senior wants to see you.” One of the household staff came to inform
Zayn immediately felt a sense of dread. His father, Linus Gasse, must have heard about the
He steeled himself and went over to the study.
Linus, the head of the Gasse family, was sitting at his desk with a grim expression.
He had just heard the news that all of the Gasses‘ allies in important positions had been.
The Gasses spent many years building up their network of influence, but now, it was all going
And this was all because of his son, Zayn.
After entering the study, Zayn called out timidly, “Dad.”
“Get on your knees!” Linus ordered icily.
“On your knees! Are you going to disobey me?” Linus bellowed.
Zayn immediately fell to his knees.
“Do you know your mistake?” Linus questioned.
Zayn didn’t know how to respond to that. He knew what he had done wrong, of course.
Linus slammed the table before hollering, “Because of your reckless blunder, our family has suffered a tremendous loss! The network we spent decades building in Enies has been uprooted! Do you know what this means?”
Zayn hung his head and kept quiet.
“I know you want to cause trouble for Southlake Corporation to please Jyn. I have no problems with your interest in Jyn, but you can’t destroy the Gasse family in the process!”
Everyone in Diatoran knew about the situation between Southlake Corporation and Morrison Group. Linus had been paying close attention to it as well.
He also knew full well why Zayn had done what he did, but he wouldn’t let Zayn ruin the Gasse family’s interests for Jyn’s sake!
“Get out! Don’t ever do something like this again!” Linus ordered with a wave of his hand.
He never thought Zayn would be so infatuated with a woman.
As Zayn left the study, he’clenched his jaw and swore under his breath. This was all happening because of Caspian. He blamed Caspian for his disgrace.
“Count yourself lucky, Caspian, but I won’t let things end like this!”
Meanwhile, over at Enies Airport, Willow and Rebecca had just arrived. When they walked out, Willow immediately spotted Caspian and cried out, “Hubby!”
Willow had not only brought Rebecca with her but the entire operations department as well, all in the hopes of ensuring that the company could conquer the business market surrounding Dhord City.
“Did you miss me?” Caspian asked as he nudged Willow’s cheek.
“Yeah! I missed you so much,” Willow said.
“Hey, you two. There are others around, you know! Stop flaunting your relationship in front of us. I shouldn’t have come!” Rebecca grumbled.
Willow blushed in embarrassment.
Caspian smiled and said, “Let’s go.”
They got into the car and headed to Southlake Corporation’s branch office. The building previously belonged to the Kanes.
“You’re incredible, hubby! You managed to take over Enies‘ business market in just a few days!
Willow exclaimed in shock.
Initially, she figured it would take at least a month for the company to gain a foothold in Enies and even longer for them to establish themselves in the business market.
But in just under five days, Caspian had set everything up in Enies.
It took her by surprise.
“I’ll leave the rest to you, honey,” Caspian said with a chuckle.
Willow nodded. She needed to put her nose to the grindstone now.
She started handling the promotions for Southlake Corporation’s branch office with Landon’s help.
Their promotional strategy was extremely comprehensive, and considering how famous their ambassador Rebecca was, they ended up spending over 100 million dollars on advertising and promotional expenses.
All of the neighboring cities surrounding Dhord City were plastered with advertisements for Southlake Corporation, and the company swiftly gained control over the business market in
Rebecca’s fame rose steadily, too.
Thanks to the heavy promotions, Southlake Corporation’s latest product launch sold like hotcakes.
Willow was swamped with work, but she enjoyed it very much.
On the other hand, there was no peace at Morrison Group.
