"What is the way out?"
He quietly spouted a name from his end. "Mu Yazhe."
She could not help clenching her fists upon hearing that.
'Lethal Beauty' was a script she really liked!
The entertainment industry, though, was such that, regardless of one's talent, one needed the right connections, means, and power.
Getting this role for her should be easy to the man, right?
Honestly, she did not want to get this role with his support.
Disheng Financial Group was headquartered in the most luxurious part of the capital's trading center, this ninety-nine-story complex gave the looming impression of being 'one above all' when they stood on its top floor!
It was no surprise that she did not know his background's astronomical value.
The entire Mu Group was said to represent the commercial lifeline of this country and was the economic center of the whole Asia.
Any inkling changes in the Mu Group would shake the financial world.
It had the monopoly on the country's state of affairs; their power and influence accounted for the network across the authorities and the underworld.
Mu Yazhe, the sole power-wielding heir of this all-encompassing group, would of course be the future owner of this conspicuous financial empire.
In his luxurious office, the man was holding the phone while elegantly leaning on his chair's backrest. His one hand was knocking against the tabletop mindlessly as his almond-shaped eyes were only half-lidded.
A powerful and irate voice rang from the earpiece. "Yesterday, Grandmaster Song called me to say that you're errant as a senior in the family for siding with an unknown actress to antagonize his granddaughter. I don't care who that woman is, but you must remember that that family is our trump card! With them behind you, you have a strong supporter to be the next head of the Mu household!"
A gleam flashed across the man's eyes. His deep voice then boomed icily, "Second uncle, don't interfere in this matter; I know what I'm doing!"
The voice from the other end continued eerily. "I, as your second uncle, is giving you a heads-up. Our family is currently embroiled in intrigues and power struggles, so don't take any risks! You oughta know that you're indicted as the next heir-in-line only and haven't grasped the Mu family's actual power yet. I believe that you are smart enough not to make silly mistakes, but don't you think you've mishandled this matter? Still, I reckon that that old man exaggerated a bit; after all, with Song Enya's status clearly set before you, I don't believe you'd risk offending her for the sake of a woman—"
The man curled his sexy lips and interrupted in a cold and sarcastic tone, "When do I, Mu Yazhe, ever need to rely on the paltry Song family to secure my status? Since I've made it here, I can continue keeping my seat secured."
The man on the other end hushed all of a sudden.
He chuckled softly. "Second uncle, the era of you and grandpa has passed. This is my era now."
His uncle sighed and said unhappily, "Up to you! Don't let me down again. Your second uncle here still believes in your capability! Make sure to take care of this matter carefully!"
"I know what I'm doing."
After he hung up the call, he tiredly leaned on his seat while rubbing the inner corners of his eyes with his slender thumb and index finger. Still, despite his lethargy, his hearing and consciousness remained sharp from years of military training!
