Chapter 635 Unpredictable
“The car accident Mrs. Hadley encountered on the night she returned to Jadeborough had a peculiar development.
Nathaniel stared at Sebastian coldly. “Tell me!”
Sebastian was momentarily stunned by Nathaniel’s intimidating demeanor. “We’ve discovered the identi of the mastermind behind the accident. It was Mr. Nigel. After we captured Mr. Nigel’s subordinate, we employed a few illegal methods to extract valuable information from the thug. According to the thug, he received orders from Mr. Nigel that night to infiltrate Rose Gardens to tamper with the car. However, when he arrived, the place was too dark. Hence, he mistook Mrs. Hadley’s vehicle for Mr. Timothy’s. The person Mr. Nigel was attempting to assassinate was actually Mr. Timothy. He didn’t expect the person wi died, in the end, was just a driver of Mr. Timothy’s.”
After the incident, when Nigel learned the news his brother was alive and that his hired goon almost kille Christina, he sweated profusely.
Nigel’s first instinct wasn’t to punish the thug. Instead, he was concerned about Nathaniel’s revenge. Consequently, he couldn’t care less about whether he should eliminate Timothy or not.
His assumption about Nathaniel was correct. After Nathaniel finished listening to Sebastian’s report, he fe the urge to murder Nigel. Killing Nigel is letting him off too easy, though. I think torture’s a better revenge.
Coldly, Nathaniel questioned, “Was Yerek involved in this plan?”
Sebastian frowned. “According to what I heard, after the incident at the Stone family’s banquet, Mr. Yerek relationship with his father grew tense. Both of them wanted to return to their previously luxurious lifestyle as quickly as possible. While Mr. Yerek wasn’t directly involved in the accident, I think he knew something about it. After all, he had someone monitor his father and even installed a surveillance device on Mr. Nigel.”
As Nathaniel digested that information, he theorized, “Timothy paid close attention to Nigel after the latter attempted to harm him. Thus, I don’t think Nigel’s stupid enough to commit a crime at this moment, but I don’t know for sure he didn’t aim to inflict harm and usurp his brother.”
After Timothy had been hidden in the dark for years, he realized the truth. In order to change Christina’s mind and ask her to save Gibson Corporation, he was willing to burn bridges with Azure.
Azure’s bias was clear as day. If Timothy had died in an accident, she would’ve attempted to kick Christina out of the family and allow Nigel to become the head of the family once more.
Even if Nigel couldn’t handle the heavy responsibility, Yerek would still be around to act as a substitute. Ultimately, Yerek would be the only winner.
Sebastian finally understood the intricacies of the matter and broke into a cold sweat. “Do you mean it’s possible Mr. Yerek used his father’s name to hire the thug?”
Nathaniel eyed Sebastian with praise. Then, he sneered, “We’ll know soon enough if Yerek’s behind this.” Nigel’s company is on the verge of bankruptcy right now. Unquestionably, I can destroy the company overnight with little effort. Since that pair of father and son don’t know how to behave themselves, I don’t mind pouring more fuel on the fire they’re trying to extinguish.
“Ask someone to sabotage Nigel’s company and plant clues pointing to Winston. Hopefully, Winston will be spurred to purchase Nigel’s company. We should let them fight first.” A cold look swirled in Nathaniel’s eyes. “After completing this plan, I want you to turn the Stone family against Nigel.” Nigel’s appearance isn’t
necessarily a great thing for the Stone family. After all, an extra family member means each share of the inheritance will decrease. It’s hard to say if uncontrollable factors will appear before Barnaby completes his will. What happened to the Stone family proved to everyone that Nigel has the biggest effect on the family’s benefits.
“Not long ago, Mr. Stone declared in his family banquet that Mr. Nigel and Mr. Yerek weren’t allowed to return to the Stone family. Currently, the Stone family views Mr. Sheridan as their leader. Without his permission, no one in the Stone family would dare to act recklessly,” remarked Sebastian with confusion.
“Sheridan is most skilled at having other people do his dirty work in the business industry. The Stone family isn’t as harmonious as outsiders believe. While none of them dared to target Nigel openly, in truth, they won’t forgive him that easily. The edges of Nathaniel’s lips curved upward coldly. “Recently, I heard Barnaby has been contacting his lawyer frequently. I think it’s about time the Stone family is put on the dramatic stage after years of stability.”
Immediately, Sebastian understood what Nathaniel was implying. Barnaby’s going to change the will, and the best way to stir the Stone family up is to leak that news! “I know now what I should do next, Mr. Hadley.”
“You may leave now. I won’t be returning to the company for the next two days, so have someone deliver the documents to my study,” ordered Nathaniel before returning to the ward.
Christina did her best to consume half of the food displayed on the table, but plenty was still left because she couldn’t eat anymore.
Lying on the couch, she peered at Nathaniel. “I’m full,”
Nathaniel picked up the untouched nutritional soup on the table and settled it in front of Christina. “Drink some. You need your nutrients.”
Without any choice, Christina obeyed. After all, it was her carelessness that led to her baby’s lack of nutrients, causing them to develop slowly.
She spent thirty minutes emptying half of the bowl while Nathaniel took care of the rest of the food.
Lying on the couch, Christina watched entertainment news.
The entertainment channel spent half of its program reporting about Emilia. She appeared beautiful and confident on camera. No matter what event she attended, she would be surrounded by her fans.
Suddenly, Christina recalled what Rayne had said in the past. Estelle is definitely utilizing unknown means to whitewash Emilia and turn her into a popular celebrity.
She gazed at the charming female manager following Emilia around and narrowed her eyes.
A malicious thought surfaced in her mind. I wonder how far Emilia’s career will reach if she loses Estelle.
When Nathaniel noticed Christina was wholly focused on the entertainment news, he asked, “It’s not difficult for me to blacklist Emilia if you want.”
Upon hearing that, Christina snapped her sight to him. “Emilia’s an unkillable cockroach. She’ll find a way to get back to her feet if she wants to. After the trouble she caused for my studio, I won’t forgive her that easily. However, I won’t attack her immediately either.”
A bloodthirsty grin settled on her countenance. “After all, the higher she ascends, the greater her fall will be.” I crushed her once, and I can do it again. Initially, I didn’t intend to eliminate her. However, she just had to
