Life at the Top Chapter 649

A trickle of cold sweat appeared on Flynn’s forehead as he hurriedly explained, “No, I would never dare to do so. I’m just trying to make it up for how I offended you just now, Mr. Laine.”

“Making up for a mistake is a must, but these aren’t necessary. They won’t solve the problem,” Jasper said coldly.

“Stupid fool! Aren’t you going to take them away?” Scully gritted his teeth as he bellowed at Flynn.

Flynn had no idea what he had done wrong. However, the only thing he could do was get his staff to remove all the dishes that had been added before he stood at attention on the sidelines.

Jasper used his fork to get himself a meatball and said to Victor, “Director Gul, let’s eat. Don’t be shy.”

Victor laughed bitterly. He had no choice but to pick up his cutleries and begin eating, even if the food tasted bland to him.

“Let’s continue with our previous conversation,” Jasper said as he ate.

“I don’t care how the leases for these commercial properties were worded previously. Either way, the previous leases will naturally all become invalid now that I’ve bought these 266 commercial properties. I wouldn’t want any complicated relationships getting in the way of the area’s advancement in the future.

“I spent so much money buying these commercial properties, there’s no way I’ll rent them out for 70,000 to 80,000 dollars. I wouldn’t be able to get even the interest back. Director Gull, I trust you guys would be able to understand, right?”

The expression on Victor’s face changed as he hurriedly said, “Don’t worry, Mr. Laine. I’ll take care of the relevant work to clear out all the problematic contracts.”

“That’s good. I won’t have to trouble anyone above you if that’s the case. After all, they have a lot of matters to take care of every day, and I would be embarrassed to trouble them with such trivial things,” Jasper said as he smiled.

Victor finally breathed a sigh of relief.

What Jasper said sounded soft and gentle, but in reality, it was an iron fist in a velvet glove.

He had made his meaning clear. Victor could be in charge of this if he was capable enough. If he was not, Jasper would look for his superiors.

How would Victor have the guts to let the deputy mayor know about the sh*tshow that had happened today? All the praises he received this afternoon would have been for nothing, and he might even end up getting punished instead.

Flynn felt his knees go weak when he finished listening to the conversation.

He was sure of one thing.

Jasper was really his landlord.

Not only was he his landlord, but he was the landlord for all 266 commercial properties on Golden Pedestrian Street!

266 commercial properties!

How f*cking much would that cost?!

Flynn did not even dare imagine how huge that figure was. However, he knew that even if every person he had met since he was born were to give him 100 dollars, he still would not have enough money to buy 266 commercial properties.

Face ashen, Flynn nearly fell to the ground. God knew what sort of big shot he had offended.

“There’s one other thing.”

Flynn shuddered instinctively and looked fearfully at Jasper when he spoke again. He had a feeling that whatever Jasper was going to say would be directed to him.

“I can’t control the other places, but I want all 266 tenants on Golden Pedestrian Street to view everyone as equals and treat each other with the same level of enthusiasm.

“To a lesser extent, the 266 commercial properties on Golden Pedestrian Street are my, Jasper Laine’s, property. But they represent the prestige of Waterhoof City to a greater extent. If the business operators here are all like Flynn Herrett, who serves customers based on the number of dishes they order and screams to have tourists kicked out of the place…

“…this pedestrian street would be ruined sooner or later. I will never allow my industry to be ruined by black sheep.”

Jasper slammed his fork down onto the table when he finished speaking. Standing, he took 200 dollars from his wallet and threw the bills down as he said, “Chef Herrett, I’ve paid for this meal. However, you have to take responsibility for your actions.”

As Jasper spoke, he smiled at Victor and said, “Director Gul, I’m going to have to trouble you.”

“Don’t worry, Mr. Laine. I know how I should take care of things. I’ll definitely give you results that you’ll be satisfied with.”

Victor had a solemn expression on his face as he nodded.

“Alright, we’ve finished eating. Julian, let’s go!”

Jasper stood and walked down the stairs with Julian. Those who stayed back had unusually complicated expressions on their faces.
