“He arrived pretty quickly.” Charles spun his chair around with a lazy look on his face.

Closing the document in her hand and

setting it aside, Sonia said, “Let him in.”

“Of course.” Daphne answered.

Very quickly, Titus entered the room, thereupon he gave Sonia a sharp stare.

As she was already used to such

workplace clashes, Sonia was

unbothered and only offered him a

faint smile as she gestured at the seat in front of her. “Please have a seat,

“You sure look calm!” he snarled,

almost in praise, before pulling out the chair and sitting opposite her.

Meanwhile, Charles sat by her side.

With that, she pushed the tea that she

had Daphne make gently over to Titus and said, “Thank you for your praise, President Gray. Please have
some tea.”

Having no intention of drinking it at all, he merely looked down at the tea before him. Nonetheless, she

mind and only set her hands on the table with her fingers intertwined. “I figure you must have a purpose
for coming to Paradigm. Co. today.”

“Since you’re asking, I might as well say it straight. I’m taking back the piece of land in the center of the
city.” Titus stared closely at her.

After exchanging glances with Charles out of the corner of her eye, she returned her gaze to Titus with a

“Take it back? I’m afraid that’s not

possible. After all, it has been

transferred and wholly belongs to me now. It’s not yours, so how could you

take it back?”

Realizing that he had misspoken, he

amended his sentence. “You

misunderstood me. When I say ‘take,’ || don’t mean it literally. I wish to buy it back.” Even so, he fumed a
little. After

all, he could have gotten this land for

free, but Tina’s actions resulted in him having to spend money on it. This made him very frustrated.

“Ah, I see. I had, in fact, misunderstood

you.” Tucking a stray lock of hair behind her ear, she continued, “In that case, how much are you
prepared to spend on it?”

“I’m not one to beat around the bush.

100 million,” he proposed, lifting up one

finger as he stared at her.

However, Charles rolled his eyes and couldn’t help but reply, “Do you really think you can buy back a plot
of land in the city center with 100 million? Are you joking or is Triforce Enterprise so

broke that it can’t afford to spend

some money?”

Hearing the insults directed at him,

Titus scowled. “Be careful I don’t sue you for slander, President Lane.”

Of course, Charles wasn’t afraid of idle

threats and only curled his bottom lip.

“Am I wrong? Why else would you offer only 100 million? Or do you think we’re simply not worth it?”

Sonia picked up her own cup of tea and gently took a sip before saying with a smile, “I agree with
Charles, President Gray. 100 million is too little!”

Since Titus knew that the sum he gave

was indeed not enough, he asked after

a pause, “How much do you want,


“Take it or leave it-2 billion.” Sonia put

down her cup of tea after giving a


It wasn’t just Titus, even Charles gaped

at her right then.

Slapping the table, Titus complained, “2 billion, President Reed? That’s daylight robbery!”

“I will admit my price is a little on the high side, but it’s not that high. That’s a plot of land in the city
center. Its starting estimate is 1.5 billion or so, and the price is only going to skyrocket

once its surroundings have been

developed. When you take that into

account, 2 billion isn’t that much,” she

told him with a smile.

Furious, he let out a bitter laugh. “Who

knows how long it would take for the land to be worth 2 billion? For you to

offer me that price right now means

you must have no wish to sell me the

land at all.”

She shook her head. “That’s not true. As long as you give me that sum, I will have the deed transferred
to you at once. You’re only thinking like that because you don’t wish to give me that much. If that’s the
case, I might as well

keep it for myself and build a factory


“Well, I’d love to see how smoothly the

construction process goes!” he

snorted coldly.

Narrowing her eyes, she asked, “Are you threatening us, President Gray?”

Without answering, he turned and left.

As he watched Titus slam the door

shut, Charles asked, “You’re not

thinking of playing a trick on him, are you, baby?”

“No.” She continued to drink her tea calmly. “I’m being truthful. As long as he gives me that sum of
money, I shall

give him the plot of land. He can think what he wants, but I can’t do anything

about the fact that he can’t afford it.”

Spinning in a circle around her, he

tutted, “In such a short amount of time,

you’ve become such a fox in the

market. 2 billion! Never mind Titus

even Toby wouldn’t have that much working capital on his hands at a

moment’s notice.”

“And that’s why I shall have the land to

myself,” she summarized with a grin.

Abruptly, the cell phone on her desk rang. Putting down her teacup, she

picked up the phone and looked at the

caller ID before answering with a

“Good afternoon.”

“We’re very sorry, President Reed, but

some issues have arisen with our engineering team, and we’re not able to help you build your factory. It’s
best that you find someone else.” With that, the person at the other end of the line

hung up the phone, not even giving her

the chance to speak.

“What’s wrong, baby?” Charles questioned in concern upon seeing the expression on her face.

She opened her mouth, but before she

could respond, the phone rang again. This time, it was a call from the machinery company. “Hello, is this

Miss Reed?”

“Speaking,” she answered hoarsely, tightening her grip around the phone. She could already guess what
the other party was about to say.

“Here’s the thing, Miss Reed. We

recently received a large order from

overseas at our machinery plant and

no longer have the means to assemble

your machinery. We‘re so sorry and

sincerely hope you accept our

apologies.” With that, the other person

hung up so quickly that it was as if

they were afraid she would tear them

to shreds like a beast if they took too


“What on earth is the matter, baby?” Seeing her expression get uglier and

uglier, he became anxious.

Slowly, she put down her phone and said with an ice-cold face, “Titus has messed with the engineering
team and machinery company that we found to prevent us from building our factory.”

“What?” Furious, he slammed his fist

on the table. “That old dog is too shameless! I can’t believe he would

use such methods. This won’t do-1

must get into contact with some other


“I’m afraid there’s no use. Considering

Titus really is determined to stop us, he

would have gone to the other

companies as well.” She clenched her


After a moment of silence, Charles

said, “We still have to try no matter

what.” With that, he walked out onto

the balcony to start making calls.

Tiredly, she rubbed the bridge of her nose and opened her social media to post about her feelings. The
moment she published the post and was about

to put down her cell phone, a

notification flashed across the screen.

It was a message from the mysterious Z-H reading, What’s wrong?’

It’s him! For some reason, her heart

skipped a beat, and an indescribable feeling arose when she saw who the message was from. However,
she didn’t overthink it, and only typed back after breathing in deeply, ‘What do you mean, what’s wrong?’

Z-H: ‘Your post!

Only then did she figure out that the

other party must have sent the

message after seeing her post. As her heart calmed, she replied with a slight smile, ‘Are you concerned
about me?’

At the other end of the line, Toby pursed his lips after reading the reply. In truth, he didn’t know why he
went to talk to her after reading her activity. By

the time he came to his senses and

realized what he was doing, he had

already sent the message.

By then, it would only look more

suspicious if he deleted the message.

She would still see that he had sent her

a deleted message and ask him what it

was about, so he might as well just go

with it. If you say so!

T’ll take that as a yes, then, she replied.


‘So, you want to know what happened?’

she asked.

“His eyes flashed. ‘Not necessarily. You

can always choose not to tell.’

“Nah. What’s not to tell?’ Despite not

knowing why, she began to treat the other party as a listening ear and detailed her previous encounter

Titus to him in a voice message.
