Edgar and His Destined Wife Chapter 253

Chapter 253 Weighing the Pros and Cons

He still had a bargaining chip in his hands! A bargaining chip that Edgar had no way to avoid.

Mr. Hart and Mr. Blanc wanted to slip away, but before they could say anything, Edgar chuckled. He turned to look at Andy. “You want to talk about Eyer Group, don’t you?”

He didn’t have any apprehensions other than this. Andy was a little startled. Then, Edgar stood up and walked to him one step at a time. “Andy, you were once my most trusted partner. You contributed a lot to how Royden Group is today, so my tolerance for you is a little more than any other person.”

“But remember what I’m saying today. There’s no third or fourth chance for anything. On the day of the project acceptance, all evidence pointed to you. I have no way to let you off easily.”

Andy trembled. Even Andy couldn’t refute Edgar when met with Edgar’s shrewd and dark eyes.

“Before the matter is investigated, it’s best for you to stay at home. While waiting for the company’s resolution, you will be temporarily stripped from any authority as a vice president.”

Edgar concluded the matter in a few sentences.

Mr. Hart and Mr. Blanc, who were at the side, were so surprised they were in a cold sweat. They must have been out of their mind to believe Andy’s flowery speech.

Edgar had always been in control, after all. He played Andy as easily as a game of cat and mouse.

Furthermore, in the board meeting, everyone other than the two of them supported Edgar. Now that Andy was suspended, Mr. Hart and Mr. Blanc were worried.

“Mr. Royden, we…” Seeing Edgar leave, they wanted to catch up to him immediately.

“Stop!” Andy cried out coldly. “You want to win Edgar’s favor immediately after you think I’ve fallen? When you received money from me, you weren’t being like this.”

“About this…” Mr. Hart was in a dilemma. “Mr. Shaw, no, it’s Andy. You sent me some gifts previously, but that was done socially. Now that you’re being suspended, of course, I have to make clear to Mr. Royden that I’m not the same as you.”

“That’s right, Mr. Hart. Let’s hurry. We can’t catch up if we’re too late.”

Bang.

The door shut again.

Andy slammed his fist on the table in the meeting room. “Edgar, you played me!”

If Edgar didn’t have control of the whole match in the first place, he wouldn’t have moved so quickly. Shortly, those from the legal department rushed over and searched Andy’s office. They also requested the bank to thoroughly investigate the dealings of his personal funds.

“Mr. Shaw, what should we do?” His assistant beside him was so frightened that he was dripping with cold sweat. “Mr. Royden is serious this time. Why don’t you ask Mr. Royden for mercy?”

Andy’s smile became colder.

“Why should I ask that fellow for mercy? He claims to be helping me on the surface, but he actually has bigger ambition than me.”

“So you’re just going to sit here and wait to die?”

Who knew how vicious Edgar’s tricks were? If Andy didn’t think of a way soon, his name would quickly and completely disappear from this circle. When that time came, making a comeback would basically be a pipe dream.

“Keep quiet.”

Andy hit the table hard. “Of course, I won’t take it lying down.”

Edgar, aren’t you afraid that what you did to the Eyer family will be revealed?

When Jean was just about to leave the Royden Group building, she was stopped by security.

“What are you doing? Is Edgar going back on his word?”

“No, Ms. Eyer. Mr. Royden has asked you to wait here for a moment. He’ll be down shortly.” The security guard said.

Jean wrinkled her brows. Before she could react, Mr. Martin said at once, “Ms. Eyer, since matters are almost done, I’ll be leaving.”

Jean nodded. “Alright. I’ll look for you if there’s anything else in the future.”

Mr. Martin was startled at first before he nodded. “Thank you, Ms. Eyer.”

Jean waited on the first floor of Royden Group for a while before she saw Edgar walk out from the elevator. She was annoyed. “What is it? Tell me, quick.”

She had just received a call from Mr. Rocher and was about to head over.

Mr. Rocher said that he had found a portion of the information that was burnt and that he could pass it to Jean.

“You’re meeting someone at night?”

Jean responded naturally. “Yes.”

Even if she wasn’t, she couldn’t keep waiting here for him like a fool. It wouldn’t be good for either of them if any slanderous rumors spread again.

Her urge to clear the air over their relationship was written clearly all over her face.

The man’s brows furrowed tightly. “Who?”

“That has nothing to do with you!” Jean was feeling a little annoyed. “I’m leaving. If there’s anything, you can just look for my lawyer.”

“No.”

Edgar took one step forward and stared at her face. One step away, his voice was extremely magnetic. “Didn’t you say that you wanted to investigate this matter clearly? Before it ends, you better stay close to me.”

What absurd reasoning was this?

“Edgar, are you looking for an excuse to avoid responsibility? You can just get people to investigate. Why do I need to stay close to you? Let me remind you again, you already have a fiancée.”

She said it without thinking.

Without noticing, her voice had been slightly loud. This attracted the attention of a few staff members.

She thought that he would argue with her. She never thought that the man would smile. “Thank you for your reminder. But we’re both people who can distinguish between personal and work affairs, aren’t we?”

Jean was startled for a moment.

“Let’s go. For the next 24 hours, you have to be responsible for my personal safety.”

What?

Miles, who was at the side, chimed in. “Mr. Royden just suspended Mr. Shaw and has launched a company-wide investigation. This will undoubtedly affect certain people’s interests. If they are plotting and scheming in that way, the personal safety of you and Mr. Royden will be at risk now.”

Jean bit the corner of her lip. “Edgar, you took advantage of me!”

The man walked to the front with a light smile on his face. As Jean caught up to him, he immediately repressed the smile and acted confused. “I just did what you said. Did I do something wrong?”

Jean was dumbstruck with anger.

But it was clear that she had been involved in his schemes.

“You suspected Andy all along, and you just needed an excuse. I just so happened to come along, so you pushed the boat with the current?” Jean sat in the car huffily. No matter how she thought about it, she was furious.

Edgar raised his hand to press the bridge of his nose. She was becoming smarter.

He adjusted the buttons of his suit and instructed the driver. “Let’s go.”

Jean turned away and didn’t want to look at him.

Her heart thumped as the scenery that swept past the window became more familiar. “Where are you taking me?”

“The Eyer Residence.” He turned to look at her and said seriously, “Staying together is the best choice for our personal safety. If you don’t want to go to the Eyer Residence, would you like to come to my house instead?”

He asked her so seriously, but it made her even angrier.

“Of course, I don’t want to go to your house.”

Her beautiful face was reflected in his dark eyes. As he was observing her, he suddenly laughed.

Jean was scared when she saw it.

He suddenly got close to her and asked in a husky voice by her ear, “Who are you meeting tonight?”
