The old lady huffed. “You idiot. Don’t worry, I know what I’m doing.”
Benny explained. “The CEO of Waylon Realty, Mr. Carter actually lent a hand to Alex just to help Dorothy get the branch from City South. This means that they are quite close. If it was Dorothy who signed it, she might’ve just used her body to persuade him. But if Alex did it, then it could have been for a different reason. It could be that William Rockefeller had worked with Charles Carter when he was still alive. If we use their relationship, the Assex family would be better able to work with Waylon Realty.”
Meanwhile, Dorothy had just gotten into their car. “Grandma’s sudden change in attitude was most likely due to your relationship with Mr. Carter. They’ll want to work with Mr. Carter through you as a way to improve their partnership.
Alex huffed. “She can dream on. Now that you have full control over the branch in City South, you’ll be able to expand this business to its full potential… I know it’s best to not cut ties with them immediately, since we can still take advantage of their platforms to grow the business first. Who wouldn’t take this opportunity anyway? However, by the time that they realize they won’t be able to get anything out of me, that old hag will immediately switch up her attitude again and not let you reap any benefits from their side.”
Dorothy nodded in agreement.
Alex had just helped Zoey by coincidence. Once he used up his favor, then the Carters would no longer see the need to help him anymore.
“Oh right, how did you know to prepare two different contracts? You didn’t even tell me,” Dorothy asked.
“I know that old hag all too well. It was just precautionary measures. I didn’t think I’d actually have to use it, to be honest.”
“You’re just so amazing!” Dorothy smiled.
“Do I get a reward then?”
“What would you like?”
“Can… can you give me a kiss?”
Dorothy’s eyes widened as she stared at him in surprise when she heard his words.
Alex looked at her and smiled sadly. “It’s fine.”
Suddenly, Dorothy shifted to her side and pecked him on the cheek gently.
Alex was overjoyed. He thought, ‘This is great! I’m one step closer to the fourth base!’
In just a few minutes, the two arrived at the branch in City South.
As soon as she became the general manager, Emma had ordered the staff to deny Dorothy access to the company yesterday. She even ordered the removal of Dorothy’s work tag and keycard.
Thus, Dorothy was prevented from entering by security. She couldn’t get in at all.
The employees had not been notified that Dorothy had regained ownership of the company.
“Emma Assex went too far! What do we do now?” Dorothy huffed in anger.
“Kiss me one more time and I’ll help you force your way in!” Alex smirked.
“Ugh, just don’t. I’m not in the mood for this.”
Alex was just joking. He grabbed her by the hand and said, “Don’t worry, you have me. Even if the sky comes crashing down, I’ll be the shield to protect you.”
Alex then dragged Dorothy into the company, preparing to barge in by force.
Just then, three security guards rushed over to stop them.
“Do you really want to stop us? I already told you that my wife is your new boss.”
The three security guards were still blocking their way, refusing to let them pass.
Why would they do this?
This was all because Emma had given them a pay raise.
