He sat back on his chair. I’ll want to hear how Fabian has mistreated Hannah.
Then, Darius looked shocked and stumbled backward. With cold sweat on his forehead, he stuttered, “How…did you know who I was referring to?”
The look of disbelief only confirmed Xavier’s assumptions that Fabian had done something to Hannah.
With that in mind, he glared at the other man and warned, “Are you only scared of offending Fabian? Aren’t you afraid of what I can do to you?”
Darius swallowed in fear. Clearing his throat nervously, he repeatedly denied, “No, no, that is not what I meant. Mr. Jackson, I…”
In contrast to the face he portrayed, he was actually bursting with joy on the inside. Who the hell does he think he is? He still got played by me. Yvette was too worried about it. I can’t believe she kept telling me to be careful and not let Xavier see through my act.
Pft! This guy is an idiot. If not for his dad, he would probably be busing dishes in a restaurant.
Yvette’s cousin felt proud of himself for making Xavier take the bait. He could not believe that he managed to fool the president of a big company. I probably can make it to an A-listed actor at this rate.
With the anxious look on Xavier’s face, he thought that it was time to start lying about the story they made up.
Abruptly, he collapsed to the ground on his knees. He widened his eyes and earnestly pleaded, “Mr. Jackson, are you sure you can protect me?”
“Why? Do you not believe me?” Xavier challenged.
As the successor of the Jackson family, one of the five prominent families, do you think I’ll be afraid of Fabian?
Yvette’s cousin continued to look terrified. “In this case, I’ll start from the beginning. It was the second day after their wedding…”
“What? How could something like that happen? Isn’t Fabian going overboard?”
At that point, Xavier was livid, and he slammed his fists onto his desk. Ignoring the throbbing pain in his hands, he glared at Darius.
The man on his knees was feeling the total opposite of what Xavier felt.
This is great! As long as you stay like this, the more trouble you will make and the more Yvette will like me. At the end of the day, I’m a wise man, and I’m damn good in bed too. Hahaha!
Although he felt as though he was standing on top of the world, he could not show it on his face. Otherwise, Xavier might find out and come after him instead.
Giving an innocent expression, he told Xavier, “Mr. Jackson…I can’t make any decisions. You are aware that Fabian controls Baykeep, and I’m merely an employee. There is no way I can…”
In response, Xavier roared, “Hmph! How powerful can he be? Does he really think that he can dominate Baykeep and that no one can touch him? Has he taken the other four prominent families into account?”
His face darkened, and his eyes were shooting such fiery glare that could burn someone alive. He was obviously very much affected by the taunting.
“Ms. Young knows about Fabian’s intervention too. Therefore, she came to me for help. It’s something I ought to help her with for I can’t simply throw the responsibility to someone else. But then again, who am I to stand up against Fabian? Since she knew I could not do anything in my position, she asked me to look for you to get help.”
He contorted the facts and made it sound convincing. With such a pitiful act, how could he not believe me?
“I will take over this matter. Meanwhile, you can go back and tell Hannah not to worry. Just leave the rest to me,” Xavier assured.
