"Grandpa, I've divorced her already. She's nothing more than just an ex to me."
Hearing what he had said, Nelson was so angry that he felt his heart clenching painfully. Raising his hand, he grabbed his chest tightly, taking deep breaths to calm himself down.
Nelson knew he was probably asking for too much, but this was his only wish now. He was old, and feared that he may never live to see his grandson have a happy marriage.
There was no way for Jonas to understand his grandfather's thoughts. Love was the least of his priorities. What was more, he believed that he would only get married if it was beneficial for him.
Jonas didn't stay that much longer with Nelson since he still had a lot of work at the company. However, he knew that Nelson wouldn't stop pestering him about getting married any time soon.
As Jonas entered his office, William couldn't help but feel that his boss was in a bad mood. The office's monochromatic colors gave off a cold and unwelcoming air, which quite suited Jonas's personality today.
Knowing this, William was smart enough not to enter Jonas's office. After all, he wouldn't have been in such a high position in the company if he had not been as sharp as he had been. Whenever someone else went in and got scolded by Jonas, William couldn't help but chuckle quietly to himself for feeling so clever.
However, there were times when his cleverness wasn't enough.
Gavin was trying to call Jonas but he wasn't picking up his phone. Following Nelson's advice, he called the office's hotline.
"Is Mr. Gu in the company?"
"I'm sorry but Mr. Gu is busy at the moment,"
William replied, choosing a relatively vague answer. In truth, Jonas had just finished his work. Now he was leisurely going through business magazines and drinking coffee. It seemed that he did not want to go home at all. He knew that the boss would definitely sleep in the company tonight.
"Please tell him that his grandfather wants him to come back tonight. It's very important."
Gavin was very kind and polite, but it inexplicably made William feel a bit stressed. This was the calm before a storm.
Nelson was the biggest decision maker in the company. Although he didn't get involved in the company's affairs since Jonas married, his power was still there. After weighing the pros and cons for a bit, William finally decided to knock on the door.
Jonas stopped what he was doing and put down the business magazine. For the past few minutes, he had just been staring blankly at the magazine on his lap while he drank his coffee. It relaxed him in a way, even though he wasn't really reading anything.
"Boss, Gavin called. He say that you should be back at the mansion tonight,"
William said after a moment of hesitation. He tried his best to convince himself that there must be some risk in getting a high salary. Greater wealth was always accompanied by greater dangers.
