Chapter 136: Grand Opening
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Yvette Larson glanced at her husband, tears filling her eyes. She wanted to know if he still loved her. ‘Why were we still fine in New York? Even while we were at the Larson family’s ancestral shrine, everything had been fine. Yet, he had visited La Feria Club that very night. Fine. Even if you were forced to go to La Feria Club and didn’t get involved in any shady dealings, what about Kimberly Gold? Why would the Gold family’s young lady give you such an expensive car, and why would she send an invitation to the Larson Corporation just because of you?’
‘What is this? Is she trying to provoke me? Or do you mean that you’re already in a relationship with her?’ Yvette Larson held her grievances in and said nothing. ‘It isn’t the time to mention a divorce. If I were to do so now, the Gold family would definitely retract their invitation. Grandpa would definitely make me take the blame then.’
Yvette Larson clenched her fists tightly, swearing to herself that she would never lose to Kimberly Gold.
The day of the Gold Corporation’s grand opening was finally here.
In the end, the ten people chosen were: Joseph Larson, Francis Larson, Frederick Larson, Franklin Larson, Linda James, Hilary Stone, Yvette Larson, Quince Larson, Eleanor Larson, and Quinn Larson.
Of course, Finn Taylor had been excluded.
Each of them was dressed to the nines and walked in as though they were big shots. But to their surprise, they realized that they didn’t know anyone inside.
To be honest, the Gold family hadn’t invited many prominent families from San Francisco. Those who were here were families on the same level as the Sanders family.
In fact, most were friends of the family from Chicago. They were all prominent figures in the business world, unlike the Larson family—which never even had the chance to interact with the Gold family in the past.
Thankfully, they had a whole table to themselves and didn’t need to squeeze in with others. Otherwise, it would’ve been much more awkward for the Larson family.
But Quince Larson was no longer humble once they sat down. He glanced around and asked, “Why don’t I see Finn Taylor? That piece of trash made a bet with me, saying that he received an invitation too. I would love to see where he is.”
‘Pfft!’ Eleanor Larson burst out into laughter. “Brother, you’re so funny. Why don’t you look around at where we are? Only respectable people like us can be here. What’s Finn Taylor? Even if he kneels down and begs the Gold family, they wouldn’t let him in.”
“Haha, you’re right. I can’t wait for him to kneel down to me.”
Finn Taylor and Quince Larson had made a bet. If the former didn’t show up today, he would have to kneel down before the latter.
Now, Quince Larson had already taken in his surroundings. Finn Taylor was nowhere to be found.
He was sure of his victory.
The chairman’s office of the Gold Corporation.
Finn Taylor looked at Third Master Gold. “Third Master, this is the last round. You’ve already lost all your cigarettes and wine to me. What are you going to place on the table this time?”
After waking up early that morning, Yvette Larson had headed to the Larson family’s residence with her parents to meet the rest of the family.
Finn Taylor was the only one left, and Kimberly Gold had picked him up.
Quince Larson couldn’t find Finn Taylor because the latter was still seated in the chairman’s office on the top floor. It would be strange if anyone could find him.
When Finn Taylor arrived, Third Master Gold had been playing a game of chess. As such, he told the latter that he understood the game too.
Unexpectedly, the old man had dragged him into a game. He even said that he would reward Finn Taylor if the latter won. If the latter lost, he didn’t expect Finn Taylor to give him anything since it was just a game.
That was how Finn Taylor had won Third Master Gold’s valuables after just two rounds.
Third Master Gold was a competitive player and insisted on one last round.
Finn Taylor glanced at the clock. They still had half an hour left until the opening ceremony—it was enough for one last round. However, he was curious as to what Third Master Gold would bet this time.
“Half the shares of the Gold Corporation.”
Finn Taylor was stunned. ‘I never thought that the old man would stake half of his company!’
Nonetheless, Finn Taylor didn’t know what Third Master Gold was plotting.
‘So what if I give half of my company to Finn Taylor? He’ll get married to Kimberly one day. Then, whatever I give him will be returned to me eventually.’
With that, the third round of the game began.
As soon as it started, Finn Taylor noticed something amiss. He realized that Third Master Gold’s skills seemed very different from what he had shown in the previous two rounds.
He had clearly been hiding his true skills in the past two rounds. He was only showing off his true skills now.
As such, the two men went head-to-head as if their lives depended on it.
Kimberly Gold understood the game well. She stood by the side, observing the game carefully. Her emotions were tied to the game too.
This game could be said to be the match of the century—it was extremely intense.
Very quickly, half an hour passed.
Everyone sat in the banquet hall in confusion. “Hey, why isn’t Third Master Gold here yet?”
“Yes, it’s already time. Did something happen to him?”
“That’s impossible—it’s still peaceful here. Do you think it’d be so peaceful if something happened to him?”
The guests threw out their own guesses, but Third Master Gold still didn’t show up.
At table number 11.
Quince Larson glanced at the time and grumbled, “Is that old man dead? Why is he taking so long to show up?”
No sooner had he finished his sentence than Joseph Larson shot him a death glare. “Quince Larson, you’d better watch your words. If you cause any trouble, I’ll kick you out of the Larson family.”
The Old Master knew how important and powerful the Gold family was. If Third Master Gold were to learn of what Quince Larson had just said, he’d definitely make life difficult for the Larson family.
This was why Joseph Larson had given his grandson a stern warning.
“Third Master Gold is here.” Someone shouted just then, and the guests saw Third Master Gold walking into the hall.
To Third Master Gold’s surprise, he realized that he wasn’t the only one who had been hiding his true skills. Finn Taylor had been hiding his own skills too.
In the end, he had no choice but to surrender to the latter.
With that, half of the Gold Corporation now belonged to Finn Taylor.
When the Larson family saw Third Master Gold walking in, their faces were filled with disbelief. This was because they saw a man and a young lady on either side of Third Master Gold.
The young lady was Third Master Gold’s granddaughter—Kimberly Gold—while the man was none other than Finn Taylor!
