Charity was momentarily dumbfounded.She previously did hear that a few people had tried to have her join the board of directors, but there was no news after that.Little did she expect she would become a board member just like that.“So, are you trying to get me to band with you to deal with the Jewell family?” Charity soon guessed Finn’s motive. “Don’t forget, Young Master Carlson. Chester was in jail for three months, but he ousted you once he was out of jail. Are you sure you’re competent?”“Hehe. It’s different this time.” Finn said with a grin, “Chester is being treated in the Jewell Corporation’s hospital at the moment. Although he’s been trying to hide it, I managed to learn about something. This time, not only is his leg seriously injured, but his head has also suffered a concussion. There’s no way he can recover within one and a half years. Considering his current health, how can he take care of himself, let alone handle the company’s affairs?”Charity deliberately said,
“No wonder I noticed yesterday that Chester has thinned down a lot,” Charity added.“Ever since he’s been injured, he has lost over ten kilograms. He has a poor appetite, and his wound hurts at night, so he doesn’t get proper rest.” After that, Ken glanced at Charity and realized that her expression remained nonchalant.He gritted his teeth.That woman was indeed… a lot more cold-blooded than Chester back then.Sure enough, like attracts like.When the two of them entered the ward, they sensed the unpleasant smell of blood and disinfectant.Chester, on the other hand, had already closed his eyes, and his face was pale.Ken opened the window. “Young Master Jewell must’ve been in so much pain that he has fallen asleep.”“I’ll wait.” Charity asked, “It should be okay, right?”“I’m sure Young Master Jewell will be glad to see you when he wakes up.” Ken said honestly, “Miss Neeson, to tell you the truth, I’ve been working for Young Master Jewell for ten years, and he used to be a c
Charity stared intently at the arm that she was pressing on with both hands.It was bony.“Finn tempted me into helping him using 20 billion dollars.”“20 billion dollars.” Chester laughed. “That’s quite a large sum of money. The Carlson family is putting in a lot of money to get what they want.”“What do you need me to do?” Charity asked directly.“Will you agree to do whatever I ask you to do? You’re suddenly so nice that I’m not used to it.” While Chester was speaking, his brows raised a little.“I’m not that despicable.” Charity looked down. “I’m not the kind who’ll kick a man when he’s down.”“I know.” Chester’s gentle gaze was fixed on her. “If Cindy hadn’t exposed what you said on the Internet, Finn wouldn’t have looked for you and tried tempting you.” Charity recalled what she had said earlier. She told Madam Jewell that Chester willingly saved her and that she did not beg him to do so.That remark was indeed cruel.“Just promise Finn,” Chester said all of a sudden.
Chester felt bitter. In the past, the people he looked down upon the most were good men and husbands. He did not expect that he would regret it so much one day. “You’ve said so much, but you haven’t mentioned yourself. Are you planning to give Jewell Corporation up?” Charity swept a glance across Chester’s body. “I don’t want to give it up, but I’m powerless.” Chester clenched his hands. “The doctor said I can only be discharged in at least three months. My left leg still needs to be operated on, and my head hurts all the time. I don’t get sufficient sleep at night and am not clear-headed enough during the day. Shaun is handling many matters in my stead now.”Charity frowned. It seemed that Finn had guessed everything correctly. “Of course, if you’re willing to take charge of Jewell Corporation, I’ll give you my full support,” Chester suddenly said. Charity was stunned. “I’ve never thought about it. All I want now is to manage Neeson Corporation.”“I guessed so too.” Ches
“No…”Charity was stunned. “We…”“Come back,” Chester called. Ken, who was about to open the door and head out, bit the bullet and said with his back facing them, “I didn’t see anything.”“Don’t spout nonsense. She’s giving me a massage,” Chester scolded. Ken was taken aback. Charity quickly pulled the blanket down to cover Chester’s leg. “Since you’re here, I’ll leave now.”“Don’t.” Ken knew he had misunderstood, so he said hastily, “I’ve prepared your meal, Miss Robbins. Since it’s past noon, you can have lunch together. Young Master Jewell’s appetite hasn’t been good lately, but maybe he’ll eat better with you here.”“Enough. Don’t put Charity in a difficult position.” Chester sighed softly. “People might lose their appetite looking at how ugly I am. There’s no need to do this.”Ken had served Chester the entire time, but it was his first time hearing Chester lament, and he was momentarily dumbfounded. What act was Chester putting on?Right then, Charity said, “You’re
Chester did not speak. He simply stared at Charity with an affectionate and melancholic yet frustrated gaze. Charity immediately felt uncomfortable. “I’m leaving.”“Thank you for your hard work today. See Miss Robbins off, Ken,” Chester said hastily. “No need. I know the way out.” Charity took her bag and scurried away. As Chester watched her leave from behind, a hint of sadness flashed across his eyes. Ken said, “President Jewell, you can use work as an excuse to ask Miss Robbins to come over.”“You have a point there.” Chester was stunned for two seconds. Then, he praised Ken. “My head injury has really made me stupid.” Ken thought to himself, ‘You didn’t look like you were stupid when you were pretending to be weak and fragile.’“You shall go to the board of directors meeting at Jewell Corporation tomorrow to protect her,” Chester told Ken, “If she supports Finn, I’m afraid my dad will act out of control. Tell my dad directly that this is my stance.”“But this will c
During the board of directors meeting in the morning, the directors appeared one after another. They were all men and women older than Charity. However, no one dared to underestimate Charity when everyone gathered. What a joke. Who would dare to be careless with a countryside girl who had climbed to such a position? Director Carlson went up to her immediately. “Lizzie, did you eat the pumpkin soup I sent you when you were in the hospital? It’s especially suitable for girls because it’s great for beauty and wound healing.”“Thank you, Uncle Jeremy.” Charity smiled. She did not sound very enthusiastic, and it even sounded a little cold. When Hunter, who entered afterward, saw Charity and Director Carlson so friendly with each other, his face darkened. He scolded, “Some people must’ve lost their conscience. Someone almost lost his life to save her, yet she’s so ungrateful to him.”“That’s right. Don’t be too heartless, Eliza.” A director close to Hunter warned, “If it weren’t fo
A director standing beside Hunter said, “Director Carlson, what a wonderful thought you expressed. Why don’t you calculate how much money we’ve previously spent on the investment in the medical courses in different schools? Now, you’re even planning on building a medical school. Do you think it can be settled with merely two billion dollars? Not to mention the training of a professional team, how about you try and calculate the yearly bonus we can get?”To many directors, the bonus was the apple of their eyes.Director Carlson laughed. “When President Jewell was here, that was what he considered too. He believed it was necessary to build a medical school. Think about it. Are we desperate for money? What we’re desperate for is fame. After hundreds of years, we’ll be gone, but the medical school we’ve established will continue to stand firm in Australia. Our company will be able to make a breakthrough in the medical field and contribute to humankind.”Hunter reacted as though he had h
