The expression on Jacob’s face was obviously very ugly after getting ridiculed by Samuel.
However, Jacob kept David’s reminder in mind and he reminded himself that the most important thing was to win the position of the executive director at the end of the day. Therefore, he should not lose his temper and get angry at Samuel.
Jacob held back his anger and he did not say anything anymore. Instead, he simply followed the crowd of people as they followed Samuel all the way to the Gold Room that he had already booked upstairs.
As soon as they stepped into the Gold Room, everyone was very surprised as they admired the luxurious decorations in the Gold Room.
At this time, one of the directors could not help but exclaim out loud, “It’s all thanks to Samuel that we can get this opportunity to take a look at the Gold Room inside Heaven Springs today!”
Someone echoed, “Yes! Not too long ago, a friend of mine who had tens of millions of dollars wanted to book the Gold Room. However, even though he tried all sorts of ways and methods, he could not get a reservation at all. Therefore, he only ended up getting the Silver Room.”
As soon as everyone heard this, they became even more curious. Some of them quickly asked, “Samuel, how did you manage to book the Gold Room? Did you get someone to help you out?”
Samuel replied arrogantly, “Why would I need to ask for anyone’s help if I want to book a Gold Room? To put it bluntly, if I want to book a room here, I can always get the room I want whenever I want to!”
After he was done speaking, Samuel continued explaining, “To tell you the truth, I’m a regular customer of Heaven Springs. I come here for dinner very often. Besides that, I’m also a close friend of Don Albert. Therefore, as long as I want to book any rooms below the Diamond level, all the rooms at Heaven Springs will always be open for me at any time!”
Everyone sitting in the room were all amazed when they heard Samuel’s words!
Mr. Price replied with an incredulous expression on his face, “Samuel, you’re really amazing! You’re actually close friends with Don Albert, the underground mobster boss in Aurous Hill?”
Samuel replied arrogantly, “If I am not familiar with him, then how can I have the face to easily book the Gold Room here?”
Even though Samuel was bragging that he was close friends with Don Albert, the fact was that he knew Don Albert but Don Albert did not know him at all!
The reason why he was able to book the Gold Room tonight was not because of his connection to Don Albert, but was simply because he spent a lot more money than the original price of the Gold Room to buy over this room from someone else for the night.
Moreover, Samuel was intentionally bragging and mentioning Don Albert at this time because he wanted to pretend to be really cool and well-connected so that he would have more face in front of everyone.
After all, no one would possibly doubt the truth behind his statement since they were all already seated inside the luxurious Gold Room at this time. Everyone in the room believed that Samuel was telling the truth and they could not stop praising and complimenting him.
At this time, Samuel was feeling even more arrogant because everyone was praising him. Therefore, he looked at Jacob before he said sarcastically, “Jacob, can’t you see that the president and all the directors are already seated? Are you really that slow witted? Why aren’t you pouring us tea now?”
Jacob had a very ugly expression on his face as he said, “Samuel, what do you mean by that?”
Samuel replied contemptuously, “What do I mean? Why don’t you look around you? Among everyone seated here today, which one of the guests does not have a higher status than you? You’re just a pathetic fool. If you don’t serve us tea, then do you really expect us to be serving you instead?”
The expression on Jacob’s face became even uglier as he said angrily, “I’ll admit it if you say that my status isn’t as great or comparable to that of the president and the other directors here tonight. I’ll admit that. However, don’t you know of your own status? You’re also just an ordinary member of the Calligraphy and Painting Association just like me, so why are you pretending to be above me? You can dream on if you really think that I’m going to serve you tea!”
At this time, David who was sitting next to Jacob was also a little annoyed. “Samuel, don’t you think that it’s a little too much for you to speak like this?”
Samuel laughed before he said, “Why is it wrong for me to speak like this? Jacob can only blame himself for being such a useless and pathetic person! If he could just book a Gold Room tonight, I wouldn’t mind having to serve him tea the entire night. However, the problem is that he simply doesn’t have this ability!”
After that, Samuel looked at Jacob before he said coldly, “Jacob, do you really think that I asked you to come to the Gold Room with us because I wanted to invite you to eat and drink with us? To be honest with you, I’m already giving you a lot of face by letting someone like you come here to pour and serve us tea tonight!”
