Chapter 610 Starting From Getting Rich
Timothy had brought Jasper back from an illegal fighting club. From the moment Jasper decided to work for Timothy, he had made up his mind to only have Timothy as his one and only employer.
He knew clearly what the Gibsons thought of Timothy, and he was only polite toward them for Timothy’s
Now that Timothy had decided to exclude himself from them and divide the family’s assets, Jasper saw no point in continuing to bear with the Gibson family’s arrogance and insolence.
As Jasper bodily blocked Azure, he said expressionlessly, “Old Mrs. Gibson, you can ask Mr. Nigel about the details of the matter. Mr. Gibson has already instructed me to keep others from disturbing his wife’s grave relocation, so please leave.”
In response, Azure slapped Jasper twice. However, those slaps only made Jasper’s cheeks red; they did not frighten him into submission.
Livid, she wanted to continue hitting Jasper, but the latter moved aside to dodge her hand, and she missed. Losing her balance, she stumbled forward, nearly falling to the ground. D
Jasper, on the other hand, stood motionlessly and watched her apathetically as if he was watching a clown perform.
Azure had never been so ashamed before. She snapped. “Timothy was a fool to have brought a rebellious vermin like you home! Just you wait. I’m going to get Timothy to fire you soon!”
With that said, she adjusted her grip on her bag and returned to her car.
Jasper rubbed his numb face and turned to re–enter the cemetery.
The new cemetery that Timothy was moving his wife to was a private upscale cemetery with tight security. Outsiders were not allowed to visit the grave without permission from the purchaser of the grave.
Timothy’s goal in choosing that cemetery was obvious he did not want the Gibsons to disturb his late wife.
Once the new gravestone was erected, Timothy stared at the photo and whispered, “Come closer, Christina. Let your mother take a better look at you.”
Christina walked over to the gravestone and lowered her head. Then, she took the white lilies from Sebastian’s hands and placed them before the gravestone.
Timothy then said, “From now on, you’re the new CEO of Gibson Corporation and the only daughter of the Gibson family. Everyone in the Gibson family will have to listen to you as their new chief.”
Christina turned to him. “You won’t intervene no matter how outrageous my actions are, right?”
-As if he had seen a younger version of himself in Christina, Timothy smiled brightly and said, “Of course.
You’re the only heir to the Gibson family.”
Upon hearing that, Christina suppressed the suspicions she had. Since she had received his affirmation, it was time for her to showcase her abilities.
“It’s getting late, so I’m going back first. Take care.”
“Have a safe trip back. Do come and visit your mother more often if you’re free.”
With that, Christina left with Sebastian and Lyle.
Jasper walked over to Timothy and said, “Mr. Gibson, Mr. Nigel and Mr. Yerek have made their move. They’ve summoned the elders. Apparently, they want to revoke your and Ms. Steele’s inheritance rights.”
Timothy scoffed. “What a bunch of fools!”
It had not been a rash move on his part when he transferred all of his assets and shares to Christina.
Timothy didn’t even have to do anything. Since they had the audacity to set Christina up, they would have to face Nathaniel’s wrath. D
Nathaniel was far more ruthless and powerful than Timothy. To this day, no one had been able to offend Nathaniel and be spared.
“Mr. Gibson, are we going to retaliate?” Jasper asked.
“No need. Christina will deal with them herself. All we need to do is sit back and watch the show unfold,” Timothy told him. “Let’s go back. Prepare more of the tea I like. We’ll have more visitors soon, and we can’t embarrass Christina.”
Jasper inclined his head. “Yes, sir.”
Right as Christina reached the hotel, Timothy delivered a large amount of rare and expensive supplements meant for pregnant women.
As she sat on the couch and stared at the table, which was filled with supplements, she turned to look at Sebastian and asked, “You heard what my father told me at the cemetery, right? What do you think?”
Timothy had been emphasizing one thing the entire time–that Christina was the one and only heir of the Gibson family.
When Azure was younger, she only had two sons–Timothy and Nigel. Like the other children, Nigel had the right to become the head of the family as well.
“This involves the Gibson family’s secrets,” Sebastian said, deliberately making things sound more mysterious to sound Christina out. When he realized that she did not show any signs of displeasure, he continued, “To be honest, Nigel isn’t fully a Gibson. Old Mrs. Gibson had him with another man.” D
Christina widened her eyes at Sebastian before pursing her lips. “This isn’t the plot of some romance story you heard from someone else that you’re trying to pass off as the Gibson family’s secret, right?”
Sebastian sighed and said, “Mrs. Hadley, I’m not lying to you. Mr. Gibson has two paternity test reports. One is Mr. Yerek’s with Mr. Nigel, and the other is Mr. Nigel’s with Old Mr. Gibson. The one in charge of the test is a business under the Hadley family’s name, so it is an entity we can fully trust.”
Christina could not believe it; she was shocked that Azure, the stickler for rules, would actually cheat on her husband. D
Christina intertwined her fingers and tapped the back of her hand as a fanatic look flashed past her eyes. “Did Old Mr. Gibson–learn about this when he was still alive?”
Hesitation appeared on Sebastian’s face. “I heard that Old Mr. Gibson died from a heart attack out of anger after learning about this. However, there’s another rumor about this. They say Mrs. Lazuli secretly killed him to protect her dignity and Mr. Nigel’s birth father’s identity when she found out that Old Mr. Gibson learned about this.” D
After a moment of contemplation, he added, “That’s because Mrs. Lazuli was the one who arranged everything at Old Mr. Gibson’s funeral. No one else had a hand in it.”
Therefore, many people had doubts about the real reason behind Oswald Gibson’s death.
All of a sudden, Christina realized that there were two reasons behind Timothy’s determination to divide the Gibson family. One was to save Gibson Corporation, and the other was because he was lied to by his family.
Christina continued asking, “Who else knows about this secret?”
“Not many. Within the Gibson family, only Old Mr. Gibson, Mr. Gibson, Mrs. Lazuli, and you know about this.”
When she heard that, she started formulating a plan in her head. Standing up, she then paced back and forth in front of Sebastian and Lyle.
Right as Sebastian was about to ask her if she was feeling unwell, Christina said, “Mr. Taggart, I need a report of every Gibson’s finances and assets, especially those of Nigel’s family. I need to have this report by the next morning.”
Sebastian curiously asked, “Have you already come up with a plan to deal with Mr. Nigel?”
Christina smiled, her eyes shining brightly in excitement.
“Getting rich is the first sign of good fortune.”
