Meanwhile, in the Axel Insurance Chairman’s office, the owner, Axel Jordan, was serving a man in his forties in a respectable manner. His face was radiant with a wide smile. He retrieved a bank card from the drawer and handed it to the man with respect and said, “Don Albert, there are thirty million dollars in this card and the pin number is your birthday. This is the bonus for you, please check.”
The middle-aged man was dressed in a smart suit. His face was quite rough and haggard but his predator-like eyes were as sharp as a lion If there were other people present, they would definitely recognize the man immediately. He was Don Albert Rhodes! Everyone in Aurous Hill knew that Albert was the mafia boss of the underworld and no one dared to mess with him!
Don Albert looked at Axel and said with a satisfied smile, “Axie, not bad. You’re pretty tactful, I’m impressed!”
Axel said in an anxious tone, “Don Albert, what do we do about the old folks who are protesting out there?
Albert said flatly, They’re just a bunch of old nitwits, don’t mind them. If they don’t disperse later, I’ll let some of my underlings teach them a lesson!
Axel breathed a sigh of relief and hurriedly said, “Thank you, Don Albert!
Albert laughed and said, “Next time, just go all out on this kind of business that can bring in a lot of money. I’ll cover for you if anything happens.”
Axel was extremely delighted. He bowed his head earnestly and said, “Don Albert, thank you! With your encouragement, I’ll continue to work harder. Let’s make a fortune together!”
Axel didn’t have a profound background in Aurous Hill, but he was good at one thing; his brain was packed with sinister plots. He knew of his shortcomings in keeping the large sum of money from the financial scams, so he had asked for Don Albert’s assistance by giving him part of the money and seeking his protection. He was certain that Don’t Albert was a reliable protection he could find as the Don was dominating the underworld in Aurous Hill. Also, because of Don Albert’s support, he could go on with his fraudulent business without any concerns.
Just when Axel was thrilled about having Don Albert by his side, his employee called and said frantically, Boss, we have a problem! Some guy who claims to be Kevin White is urging us to return the money. Otherwise, he will throw you to jail!”
Axel frowned and hurriedly said to Albert, “Don, there is a guy downstairs who claims himself to be from the White family. He is leading the protesting folks to create trouble! He said that he is very powerful in Aurous Hill and demands that we pay them back all the money, or else he’d throw us in jail..
Axel deliberately added fuel to the fire to irritate Albert.
Then, he bent over and pleaded, “Don, the White family is quite influential in Aurous Hill. I can’t really go against them if they get involved in this matter. Please help me get me out of trouble!”
“The White family of Aurous Hill?” Albert snorted in disdain and said, “In My eyes, the tiny White family is nothing but a speck of dust! Even the head of their family must bow down and salute when they see me! How dare their youngsters come to provoke me! They’re looking for trouble themselves!” Albert placed the bank card in his pocket and said coldly, “Let’s go! I’m curious to see which bastard wants the money from me!”
