Thank you for reading this post, don’t forget to visit Again!
Arianna had settled her matters with Noah, but she still felt uneasy. She had not found the perfumer or Damian yet, and there was the issue involving Derrick.
She would have an even harder time if he had a will. Stephanie might look weak, but she was ambitious and would make a fuss about it.
Arianna squatted before Eloise and said earnestly, “You’re the only one who can deal with this, Mom. Aunt Stephanie listens to you. You must ask her to hand over the power and shares Uncle Derrick has. Otherwise, it’ll be difficult for me to gain a firm foothold in the company.”
“You said your uncle wants to write a will?” Eloise asked after some thought.
“He’s keeping his guard up against US.” Eloise paused and thought for a while before continuing, “How was your uncle’s physical condition the last time you visited?”
“He wasn’t doing too well, but the doctor managed to resuscitate him. I didn’t expect him to survive.” Now that Arianna thought about it, she could not help feeling regretful.
‘Why didn’t he just die? I wouldn’t have so much trouble if he did.’
“Don’t you think you’ve made a mistake, Ari?”
“What do you mean?”
Eloise patted her daughter’s head, “Firstly, since your uncle’s physical condition is already in such a state, you should take better care of him and prevent irrelevant people from disturbing his recuperation. How can you let the two directors bother him?
“Secondly, your aunt Stephanie has always been in poor health. How can you let her work so hard? You should let her rest more instead of taking care of your uncle. You can hire a caregiver instead.”
Arianna listened quietly. She noted that her mother still had unfinished words and could not help but ask, Is there a third?”
“Thirdly…” Eloise paused, withdrew her hand, and slowly stood up, “Your elder brother has been away for a long time and encountered an accident. It’s pointless to hide such news for a long time. You should inform everyone, including the company and the general public, and hold a decent funeral for your elder brother. This way, you can grant your uncle and aunt’s wishes.”
Arianna was stunned and repeatedly nodded, “You’re right, Mom! Your advice is the best!”
Derrick and Stephanie’s insistence would be pointless as soon as Arianna revealed the news of Benedict’s death. It would also be a deadly blow to Derrick. Who knows, he might have even gotten too agitated and passed away.
As for her mother’s first two pieces of advice, Arianna should have asked someone to take control at the hospital from the get-go.
If so, they would not have been able to take advantage of the loopholes.
“I’ll do it now, Mom!” She stood up and prepared to go to the hospital as soon as possible.
“Wait a minute! I’ll go with you,” Eloise said. She had acted with her sister-in -law for so many years. How could she miss the show this time?
There was a musty smell in a dark room, and the high humidity made one feel uncomfortable. One could vaguely hear the sound of some strange insects. Feeling cold in this kind of weather made one feel very uneasy and frightened.
He opened his eyes in a daze, only to find the light dimmed. He also felt cold. Damian looked around but did not know where he was.
“Help! Is anyone there?! Help!” He shouted, and his voice echoed in the room, but there was no sign of movement outside. His voice was not as loud as he had imagined, and he felt weak. He had no strength left in his body, and someone had tied his hands and feet with ropes.
The surrounding area was empty. It was as if there was nothing else in this room except Damian.
