Always Been Yours Chapter 1139

Chapter 1139 Dodged a Bullet

Wanda’s expression darkened as well. She was extremely unhappy about the situation. “I want you to keep an eye on the company. I’m going to go over to Sawyer Group for a while.” After giving Samantha her orders, Wanda grabbed her keys from the table and headed out of the office.

“Let’s have a chat, Nicholas,” Wanda said as she entered Nicholas’ office. Edward followed closely behind her with a guilty look on his face. “I’m sorry, President Sawyer. I couldn’t stop her.” Nicholas shot Edward an icy glare before giving him a stern warning. “I don’t want you to make the same mistake again.”

“Got it!” Edward nodded.

Wanda was annoyed at how Nicholas seemed to be ignoring her, so she strode toward his table and continued speaking. “You don’t have to be so cruel, do you, Nicholas? I know I made a mistake, but my reputation has gone down the gutter now. Don’t you think I’ve already received the punishment I deserved? Why won’t you give me a chance to learn from my mistakes?” she asked.

“Well, if every person who makes a mistake gets a second chance, wouldn’t that be unfair to the victims? Anyway, there’s no hard rule saying that I have to forgive you. Do you think you can get away with it by acting as if nothing had ever happened?” Nicholas was direct and harsh with his words, and Wanda found herself speechless for a moment.

In the end, Wanda had no choice but to lower her voice as she begged him. “Nicholas, our families have a lot of history together. I hope you can consider that before terminating all our joint projects.” Muller Group had only started their business for a short while, so they would definitely suffer a huge loss if Sawyer Group were to call off their partnership. Even though Wanda’s intention had simply been to stay in Southend when she first started the company, she had also put in a lot of hard work and effort into the company. She had sacrificed her all just to get the company to the position that it was in right now.

Nicholas scoffed. “Well, it’s too late for regrets now. There’s no turning back. You don’t have to pester me, either; I’m not going to change my mind.”

Wanda looked as if she had just been struck by lightning upon hearing his words. She stumbled a few steps back as she stared at Nicholas with a look of disbelief. “Are you that heartless? Our families have been working together for decades!”

“Well, why didn’t you think of our decades of partnership when you took action against my wife and child?” Nicholas asked in return as he shot Wanda a mocking glare. “You should be glad that our families have been doing business with each other for such a long time. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be so nice—I’d do more than just cut ties with you. If anyone else dares to threaten my family or the people I love, I might not even spare them their life!” Nicholas’ glare turned icy as he looked at Wanda.

Wanda was so shocked that she could feel herself trembling with fear. “Well, you dodged a bullet this time, Miss Muller,” Nicholas commented. “I won’t do anything to you because of the relationship between our families. However, I won’t provide you with another chance if you do anything stupid again.” After warning her, he turned to stare at Edward. “Send her out!”

Wanda’s face was pale as she left Sawyer Group. She was still gloomy after she got back to her company. Once again, Samantha came knocking on the door just moments after Wanda entered her office. “Bad news, President Muller. A few companies have called and requested to terminate their partnerships with us.”

“Which companies are you referring to?” Wanda asked. Samantha quickly ran through a list of the companies that contacted them. Many of these companies had only asked for a partnership because of how involved they were with Sawyer Group—all of these companies were Sawyer Group’s trusty clients. If these companies decided to terminate their agreements, it’d be a huge blow to the company. Wanda felt extremely bothered as she thought about this. Samantha could tell that Wanda was unhappy, but she couldn’t find the right words to say even after some time.

Wanda noticed the look on Samantha’s face, so she questioned Samantha. “Is something else the matter? You can tell me everything at once.”

“Well, a lot of our staff feel uncertain about their future with this company. They’re all paranoid—they’re worried that the company will go bankrupt eventually.” Samantha spilled the truth in the end. It only makes sense for them to be worried, Wanda thought to herself.
