Chapter 497

Dahlia couldn’t help but frown when she stared at the unbothered faces of the people around her as they chatted away merrily. She made sure to arrive earlier for the board meeting, so Hank’s accusation of tardiness was absolutely baseless. From the moment she entered the room, the attendees remained seated. No one stood up to greet her–not even saving a seat for her. Clearly, they did not take her seriously.

“Hank, what’s this supposed to mean?” She whispered while keeping her composure. She knew that Hank was laying down the law from day one.

“What do you mean?” Hank lit himself a cigar and crossed his legs on the table, seemingly treating the

meeting room as his own office.

“I am sure you have received the news from the family’s patriarch. I’m the new chairman of Nicholson Corp. as 

of today.” Her voice was laced with warning.

“And?” He gave her a mocking smirk.

“You are in my seat. You’ve crossed line here.” She rapped her knuckles on the table.

“Your seat? Do you have evidence of that?” He shrugged and acted unreasonably. “Everyone here knows that this has been my seat forever. It was you who entered the room and immediately demanded my seat. What

right do you have?”

“Yeah! What right do you have?”

“Mr. Hoffman is the person in charge of the company! How dare a newcomer wrestle that seat from him? What

a joke!”

The meeting attendees started to make scene. As they were in the same boat as Hank, they would never allow the young lady to be in command.

*Please get your facts straight. I am the largest shareholder in this room and the chairman of the company. Here’s my notice of appointment. If anyone here is dissatisfied, you may check with Regulus Nicholson!” With a hardened expression, she slapped a document on the table. She had come prepared, but the situation seemed more dire than she had expected.

“A notice of appointment? Haha! Who are you fooling with this?” A disdainful Hank added. “Even general on the battlefield, as the primary decision–maker, might disregard the King’s command! We’re not in Glenstead.

Your tricks don’t work here!”

“Are you rebelling against me now?” She slammed a hand on her table, unable to contain the rage in her.

“No, we won’t rebel, but we are against your appointment.” Hank was straightforward with his dislike for her.

“That’s right! We do not acknowledge It!”

“You have neither connections in the field nor personal relationships with prominent figures. And you are lacking in capability. Why should you be our chairman?”

“Hmph! As long–timers in the company, we despise those who get in through the back door!‘


The animated attendees tried to get a word in, and they were harsh in their criticisms.

“First, this is Regulus Nicholson’s decision, Like it or not, you have to accept it.” She put on an icy look. “By the way, you were asking why I should be the chairman. I will go into detail on that topic. After looking into the company’s financial statements, I found out that the company is crumbling on the inside despite its glamorous facade. Corruption is rife–using company funds for personal matters, lining your pockets through contracts and deals, and even selling company secrets–these are commonplace.”

She finally added, “Regulus Nicholson sent me here to execute a quick shakeup. If you’re unhappy with the decision, you may turn in your resignation letter!”

The most senior executives instantly slammed their hands on the table upon hearing her words. “Who are you trying to threaten? We can always leave!”

“That’s right! I, for one, would love to know how the company operates if we resign collectively!”

“What goes around comes around! There will be a time when you need to beg us for help!”

While complaining, the group of senior executives headed toward the exit. Given their positions in the company, they knew that a collective resignation would lead to a halt in company operations and, even worse, bankruptcy. That was the reason for their confidence.
