Had it not been for her seniors’ protection, Adriana believed she would have fallen into the abyss.
“How dare these bastards force you into such filthy deals? That’s shameless!” Zeke was indignant after hearing her account.
“Hmph! They’re just an entertainment agency. How dare they do that to you? Do they think they are above the law?” Gordon fumed and promised, “Adriana, do not worry. We will see this through. No matter who your boss is, we won’t go easy on him!”
“That’s right! We will surely avenge you!” the others chimed in, looking as though they were ready for a battle.
“Thank you.” Tears of gratitude streamed down Adriana’s face.
“By the way, Adriana, what’s the name of your boss?” Natasha suddenly asked.
“I only know that Langford is his last name. I don’t know anything else,” Adriana answered.
“Langford?” The friends exchanged glances, and after connecting the dots, they appeared terrified. “That can’t be it! Is he from the Langford family of Glenstead?”
The aristocrats of Stonia were at a different level than those from Balerno-the elites that established themselves in the royal city came from lineages that spanned centuries. Natasha and her friends believed they’d be in great trouble if the boss of the entertainment agency were truly from the Langford family of Glenstead.
“Adriana, what’s the name of your agency?” Natasha cautiously prodded.
Adriana answered, “It’s called Langford Productions
Everyone paled at the mention of the agency’s name. Langford Productions was the entertainment agency under Langford Inc.! It was no surprise that the men from the agency would come for Adriana in Balerno all the way from Stonia-the Langford family was the mastermind behind it all.
“What’s wrong?” Adriana quickly sensed that something was off. She had no clue about the man behind Langford Productions, but she was aware of the agency’s huge influence.
“Adriana, you might have run into trouble. The boss of Langford Productions isn’t your average millionaire.” Natasha put on a grim expression.
Only Zoey looked unbothered. “Natasha, stop scaring her. We aren’t afraid of the boss of a random entertainment agency when we have Zeke and Gordon backing us!”
Zeke and Gordon exchanged looks, intimidated because they knew the Langford family was untouchable.
“Friends, shall we head to the next place to have fun since we’re done with dinner?” Zeke suddenly threw a suggestion out of fear that the Langfords might come after them.
Gordon agreed, “Right! It’s quite boring here. Let’s go to the bar!”
“Sure. No one objected to that, and they started gathering their stuff before leaving. At that moment, they heard a commotion at the door. Next, the middle-aged men who had left earlier barged into the place with reinforcements.
“Leave? Where are you leaving?”
“How dare you go against our boss? None of you shall leave here!”
“Get every single one of them. Circle them now!” Under the orders, a group of bodyguards closed in on Natasha and her friends. The ladies were scared when they saw the threatening scowl on the bodyguards’ faces.
“Sir, I am Zeke Perry. Please show us some mercy and call the guards off.” Zeke bit the bullet and handed the man a check. “Here’s a little token from me. Just think of it as compensation.”
“Call them off? How about no, you motherfucker?” The middle-aged man was boiling in anger as he slapped Zeke across the face.
