Chapter 499

“Oh? Mr. Hoffman, what brilliant ideas do you have now?” Dahlia asked. She had collected evidence against most of the senior executives except for him. That did not mean Hank Hoffman was innocent. Instead, he covered his tracks very well to the point that his misdeeds couldn’t be traced back to him.

“On the topic of brilliant ideas, I do have some advice for you.” With a cigar in his mouth, he went on, “To be our chairman, you need to build your reputation and capability. In short, you’ll need to make profits. That way, we will approve of you.”

The executives all nodded upon hearing that. Money makes the world go round. Their ultimate goal was to profit more.

“I have enough confidence in myself to take up the role of the chairman,” she answered nonchalantly. “I can’t promise you much, but now that I’m the chairman, all the senior executives here will see a salary increase of

50% and a 20increase in their annual bonuses. How does that sound?”

The people started murmuring among themselves after hearing her proposal, A 50% increase in pay and a 20% increase in bonus would be considered generous.

“Dahlia, we’re practical people who do not like empty promises. Anyone can make promises.” Hank shrugged


Dahlia asked, “So, what do you want me to do?”

“The company is facing three huge challenges now. If you resolve all three, we will accept you as our new

chairman. If not, you shall vacate the position for a more suitable candidate.” Hank started giving her trouble.

She raised a brow at his words. “What are the three? Tell me.”

“Firstly, you need to get the Flame Dragon Gang to pay their 70 million dollars worth of debt within seven days,

Hank declared with a smirk.

“The Flame Dragon Gang?” She was pensive. A gang that owed the Nicholson Corp. that amount of money 

must be difficult to handle.

“Why? Are you scared? You can turn it down if you’re scared,” Hank challenged her. However, Dahlia ignored his taunts and went straight to the point. “Tell me about the second challenge.”

“Secondly, you have to secure the Brooks Corporation’s project, which is worth 500 million dollars.”

“What about the third challenge?

“Hah! I’ll tell you after you complete the two challenges. It would be useless otherwise.” He chortled.

“Sure. I will not shy away from challenges that involve the company. I hope that you make good on your

promise.” Dahlia reminded him.

“I am a man who keeps his word. I will approve of you if you’re capable of completing all the challenges.” He

tossed his head back.

“Great. We shall see.” She scanned the room for one last time and left, knowing that she had to show Hank

what she was capable of to win him over. Otherwise, the bunch of old senior executives would never listen to


‘Ladies and gentlemen, do you think that little girl can do it?” The people in the meeting room started gossiping.

“No way! We failed to get the 70 million back from the Flame Dragon Gang. How could she do it in seven days?

“Right? Everyone knows that the Flame Dragon Gang is brutal. They’ll tear her limb to limb if she knocks on their door for the money!”

“The first challenge is daunting enough for her. On top of that, she has to deal with that stubborn Brooks Corporation.”

“Mr. Hoffman, your idea of killing with a borrowed knife is pure genius!”

Hank merely smiled with the cigar between his lips in the face of the discussion in the room. He believed that member of a Nicholson Family branch was no match for him.

Meanwhile, just as Dahlia and Dustin took their seats in the chairman’s office, a good–looking woman in uniform wandered into the office, her heels clicking as she walked.
