The Almighty Dragon General
Chapter 23 James knew that Thea cared about her family’s opinion the most. Over the past ten years, she had been looked down upon. She desperately wished for her family’s acknowledgment and approval. “Thea, do you want to go back?” Thea nodded lightly. “Yes…” James looked at Howard and his family, still standing at the entrance. Mildly, he said, “Thea will return under one condition. Kneel and beg her to. “James…” Tommy got angry at once, a vein pulsing on his face. “You have no authority in the family. Thea didn’t even say anything. Who are you to make these demands?” James said, “If you won’t kneel, have Lex come personally. Otherwise, she won’t be returning. ” Thea pulled on James’ sleeve gently, telling him to stop talking. They were a family after all, and she did not want things to be awkward. “Thea, you’re too soft hearted. Since they’re at your mercy, they’d grant all your requests. ” “R-really?” “Of course! Think about it. With Celestial terminating the partnership, it’s their loss. They need you. Just tell them what you want. ” Thea had an idea. Her thoughts had been muddled for the past few days, but what James said reminded her of something
All these years, the entire family had looked down upon her dad. He had no standing in the family at all. Even though he was the manager, he owned no shares. Her parents had argued countless times over this matter. She thought about it and said, “I’ll come home if grandfather transfers ten percent of Eternality’s shares to my dad. If he disagrees, I guess I won’t be going home. Also, he has to kneel. ” Thea pointed at Tommy. Over the years, Tommy had mocked her and caused trouble for her endlessly. Even during family banquets, he was always reproaching her dad. “What?” Tommy widened his eyes. Smack. Howard smacked Tommy on the head. He roared, “Kneel and apologize to Thea. ” “Dad, are you crazy? You want me to kneel before her?” Tommy shouted. Howard slapped him. At the same time, he gave Tommy a look. Under his breath, he said, “Kneel. Do you want Benjamin to get the shares?” Tommy finally understood. He threw himself onto the ground, putting on a miserable face. “Thea, I’m sorry. It’s all my fault
I shouldn’t have treated you that way. I promise I will never say a bad word about you ever again. Please come home. Grandfather will be turning eighty in a few days. We should reunite as a family!” Before Thea could say anything, James said, “No. Thea has said that she will only go home if you agree to the share transfer. Otherwise, she won’t be going anywhere. Henry, shut the doors. We’re closed today. ” After that, he entered the clinic with Thea in tow. Henry walked over and pulled down all the roller shutters. In the clinic, Thea looked worried. “Jamie, do you think grandfather will make the transfer?” Confidently, James said, “As long as you don’t return now, he will. You can’t give in this time. ” Thea smiled in relief, saying, “With the shares, mom will finally stop looking down on dad, and he will have a better standing in the family. Thank you, Jamie. ” James cradled her face, saying, “Why are you thanking me? This has nothing to do with me. You should be thanking Alex. ” Thea was confused. She did not even know Celestial’s chairman, Alex. Why was he being so nice to her?
