“Do you hear that? Everyone’s saying that you’re the thief.” Morgan smirked maliciously. Which insolent bastard is this who dared meddle in his affairs?
“Mr. Finn, it seems like you’re going to cover up for him, then?” Dustin’s eyes narrowed, a menacing look in his
It suddenly made sense to Dustin why Mr. Marcs dared to act so rampantly. It was because he had an equally unrighteous superior! Dustin had thought that he had seen the worst from Mr. Marcs, but it turns out that Morgan was worse! Not only did he distort the truth, he even framed others for things that they did not do. It was plain for all to see that his subordinate was in the wrong, but he blatantly put the blame on Custin. That was too much!
“So what if I cover up for him? Who do you think calls the shots here?” Mr. Finn pressed his lips together into a thin line. “I’m giving you a chance now. Get down on your knees and apologize to Mr. Marcs right now, and admit that you were wrong. If you don’t, I’ll make sure you spend the rest of your days behind bars!‘
“Are you sure that’s what you want to do?” Dustin challenged.
“Do I look like I’m joking? You should check if your opponent has someone behind him before you go throwing your weight around like that! Who do you think you are to do as you wish on my turf? Now get on your knees and apologize!‘ Morgan roared.
“Do you hear that? Get on your knees!” Mr. Marcs jeered, looking at Dustin like he had victory over him.
“Rhys! Why did you even intervene in the first place? This is what you get for meddling in other people’s business!” Julie gloated.
“You really think too highly of yourself! Matt shot him a contemptuous and dismissive look.
In the face of absolute power, it was irrelevant whether you were right or wrong. So what if you were right?
When the person in power dictated that you’re wrong, you have no way of defending yourself, Such was the
law of society.
“Alright, if you’ve made your choice, then don’t regret it.” Dustin didn’t waste much time talking to them. He
whipped cut his phone and made a call.
“Oh? You’re calling for backup? Hahaha!” Morgan snickered. “Hey, brat! I don’t think you get the idea here! This
is my turf, and I call the shots here! Who do you think can save you now?”
“Mr. Finn, let’s not get too cocky. I think the Harmons are in charge here at Harmon Pharmaceuticals, not you.
Mr. Finn,” Dustin corrected him.
“So what? I’m a founding member of Harmon Pharmaceuticals! Even Natasha Harmon has to address me respectfully, what more of a scoundrel like you?” Morgan announced arrogantly.
As he finished his sentence, a crisp and clear feminine voice rang out. “Is that so? So I should be addressing you respectfully now?”
The crowd turned to the source of the voice to see an elegant woman dressed in red entering and approaching them. It was Natasha Harmon!
“Ms. Harmon?” Morgan felt a premonition of oncoming trouble. He immediately forced a smile and went up to her. “Why have you come?”
“I’m here to join in the fun! Am I not welcome here, respected Mr. Finn?” Natasha put extra emphasis on how she addressed Mr. Finn.
“Ms. Harmon, that was just a joke. Don’t take it to heart,” Morgan explained awkwardly. How was he to that she would appear at such terrible timing?
“A joke? It didn’t sound like one to me. You sounded so sure of yourself back there,” Natasha said, unperturbed.
“Well— Morgan could not find the words to excuse himself for what he said.
“Forget it; I’ll let that go. Now tell me, what’s going on here?” Natasha asked calmly.
“Ms. Harmon, here’s what happened.” Mr. Marcs was just about to explain when he was cut off by a glare from Natasha. “Are you in a position to speak now?”
“Know your place!” Morgan turned to Mr. Marcs and scolded him. Then he turned back to Natasha and smiled apologetically. “Ms. Harmon, it’s nothing much. It’s just that there’s someone here with unethical intentions who stole some Immortunols. I’m already handling it, and this will be settled in no time.”
“Oh? Who’s so audacious to steal Immortunols?” Natasha asked.
“It’s that rascal!” Morgan pointed at Dustin.
“Mr. Finn, are you sure it’s him?” Natasha looked like she was holding back a smile.
“Of course I’m sure!”
“And do you know who he is?” Natasha asked, amused.
“No matter who he is, he’s committed a grave offense by stealing the Immortunols! We need to ensure that justice is served!” Morgan declared in feigned righteousness.
“Alright then. I’ll have you know!” Natasha’s expression darkened over. “This man whom you’ve accused of theft is the chief physician of Harmon Pharmaceuticals and the developer of Immortunol, Dustin Rhys!” An uproar broke out when the crowd heard that.
