Never Late, Never Away Chapter 2444
What’s he trying to do? Does he want to drag this on? I won’t fall for such tricks.
“You can explain it to me now. Why exactly was the company losing so much money previously?” he asked.
“They said something about the product being rejected. What’s that about? You have to understand that you guys are the source of my merchandise. If you run into any problems, we’ll suffer because of it too. I just need you to answer one question. Can we still cooperate or not?” shouted Larry.
Although he had said a lot, his words all made sense. He was someone who took the company’s reputation very seriously. Thus, no matter what they did, they could not deceive the consumers. It was both a principle he lived by and his bottom line.
“Mr. Norton, don’t panic. We can discuss anything. There’ll always be a solution to it,” the man replied as he poured himself some tea.
“Then tell me, how do we resolve it?” Larry asked.
It was clear to him then that the supposed younger brother of the boss that was right in front of him did not want to get involved in those matters.
“That’s a very good question. So how do we solve it? Of course, it’s to let the person in charge handle it. You can go and look for whoever made you that promise. It’s that simple,” the man replied.
“I haven’t been able to contact Mr. Lancaster recently, have you?”
Ignoring Larry, the man sipped on his tea and closed his eyes as he savored it, looking as if he were enjoying himself.
“Sorry, Mr. Norton, I haven’t been able to contact my brother for a long time too. If I could, I wouldn’t be here in the office handling company matters now.”
Hearing his words, Larry became speechless.
Does this even count as “handling company matters?” That’s ridiculous! Larry snorted coldly.
As he had expected, in the end, the matter did not get resolved in any way. Even as he exited the company and walked down the road, he kept contemplating the situation.
Where exactly did the boss of that manufacturing company go to? Why’s there still no news after so long? He could not put his finger on it. Under normal circumstances, that man would usually notify him no matter what happened. However, he just disappeared for no reason this time.
He felt slightly uneasy about it.
“Get lost! How dare you eat here when you don’t have any money!” Not far away, a waiter was shouting at someone.
By the door, a beggar dressed in rags was on the ground, looking embarrassed.
“I want food. I’m hungry…” he held his hands together as he said weakly.
“You’re hungry? Go somewhere else to beg!” replied the waiter as he began to hit and kick the beggar.
“Stop it!” Larry shouted, his tone bitter.
He looked down the most on those who bullied the weak just because they were stronger.
“What would you like to eat, sir? You can order inside,” the waiter immediately said, smiling as he bowed.
What a fraud! He was so vicious just moments ago, but he’s now acting like a bootlicker.
“Are you okay, sir?” Larry said as he hurriedly helped the beggar to his feet.
However, the old man did not dare look up at him, and his body was even trembling a little.
“Prepare a room for me,” he turned around and said loudly to the waiter.
Then, as he helped the man in, he said, “Come. I’ll treat you to a meal. Don’t worry. They won’t hit you again.”
However, the old man did not have any intention to enter.
“Thank you, young man,” he said, preparing to run off.
Why’s his voice so familiar? He looked at the man’s face doubtfully.
As soon as he realized who the man was, Larry was taken aback.
“Mr. Lancaster, let’s talk inside. Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone,” he promised.
The man then raised his head to look at Larry as tears welled up in his eyes.
He had never expected that the person who would eventually come to help him was not his family or relatives. Instead, it was just one of his business partners.
“Thank you, Mr. Norton,” he replied, touched.
