Ex-wife, Please Come Back

Chapter 259 I Was Fine At Last

One group thought Jacob held the moon and the stars in his hands, while the other did not care much for him.

He didn't have any experience at first, but now he did. It was impossible for him to please everyone as he grew up. Now, there were those who might try to take advantage of him.

Although he had the largest number of shares in the company, they would find a way to get what they wanted.

Jacob also thought of this. His father's death was only the beginning, and he knew this better than anyone else did. No one could protect him now. He would have to fight to keep his business.

"If someone says something unpleasant, don't take it personally," James said, gripping his cup tightly. It was important that Jacob stayed level-headed. He needed to secure his position as the leader, or else Michael's efforts would have gone for nothing.

"I know, Uncle James. I will do my best to ignore whatever they say." Jacob looked out of the window and glanced up at the sky. It was just dawn and there was a little light.

He turned around and read the time on the clock. It was still early, so he might not be meeting those people until much later.

How ridiculous! The first thing he did after his father's death was not to deal with the funeral, but to fix things at the company. Perhaps it was one of the many hardships that came with being part of a rich family.

"When I was young, I was terribly arrogant. I always picked fights with others, and I always went around causing trouble. If Michael hadn't dealt with the consequences for me, I wouldn't be where I am today." James took a sip of his water. The heat had dissipated, and it was cool enough to drink.

During the winter time, water got colder more quickly.

"Why? What happened when you were young, uncle?" Jacob asked in a low voice. The day before, he didn't say a single word. He was surprised to find out that he could still speak.
