It would not change a thing if Dahlia was reinstated. If the Nicholsons weren’t happy with her performance, they could still dismiss her at any moment they wished.

“And the third condition?” Julian pressed.

“My third condition is for you to transfer all the shares of Nicholson Corp. to Dahlia with absolutely no charges.” Dustin raised three fingers.

“What? All the shares? You might as well rob a bank or something!” Julian’s frown deepened. Nicholson Corp. was worth over 100 billion dollars, and the company had a promising future ahead. With the shares that they currently had, they would be worth at least 60 to 70 billion if they converted them into cash. Even for a family as wealthy as the Nicholsons, it was considered a huge amount.

“It’s quicker to extort you than to rob,” Dustin said reasonably. “Anyway, I’ve listed my conditions. It’s up to you whether you agree to them.”

“No way! That’s impossible!” Julian turned him down without much thought. Once he becomes the family head, these assets would all be his. How could he just give them away like that?

“Well, if you do not agree, then forget it.” Dustin gave a nonchalant shrug.

“Dustin Rhys! I have already fulfilled your ridiculous conditions! Not only have I apologized, but I even reinstated Dahlia to her position as chairman. You better not push your luck!” Julian did not look like he would bend to Dustin’s will anymore.

“Let’s be real. Zirtanium costs a bomb. Of course, if you want it, you have to pay a price.” Dustin. shook the bottle, and the pills rattled inside.

“Dustin Rhys! Don’t bite off more than you can chew! You can’t have the shares of Nicholson Corp. If you insist on having it, you’re just asking for trouble. And if it comes to that, don’t think that Dahlia will be reinstated to her position of chairman anymore!” Julian threatened.

Florence and Julie’s expressions immediately darkened when they heard that. All they wanted was for Dahlia to maintain her position as chairman. They dare not even dream about the company’s shares. They knew that if they were too greedy, they might end up with nothing at all, and that would be terrible for them.

“Dustin, take what you can get and stop while you’re ahead. Pushing too hard will get you nowhere!” Florence went up and persuaded him.

“That’s right… We can’t afford to offend the Nicholsons. It’s good enough that we can benefit a little from this,” Julie echoed.

“I need to make the most of this opportunity. We won’t be getting another opportunity like this anymore.” Dustin shook his head stubbornly.

“What do you mean you need to make the most of this? Who do you think you are? Do you believe that you can get the better of the Nicholsons?” Florence was on edge. She considered themselves lucky enough that Dahlia was reinstated. It would be greedy of them to ask for more.

“Dustin, you have only two options. Give me the medicine, and Dahlia gets reinstated, or I’ll give

you hell, and you end up with nothing. The choice is yours to make.” Seeing Florence back down. gave Julian the confidence he needed to throw his weight around.

“I stand by what I said. If you’re unwilling to give up the shares, then we don’t have a deal,” Dustin insisted.

“Are you really so adamant about burning bridges?” Julian snarled.

“Don’t scare me. I’m easily frightened. Who knows? I might just tremble and drop this bottle of medicine into the sewers. We’d be in trouble then, wouldn’t we?” Dustin gave the bottle another shake.

“You!” Julian was so furious. But he had said and done all that he could, and nothing seemed to work!

“If you can’t call the shots, call your grandmother. Ask her if she agrees to my condition.” Dustin suggested to Julian

Julian took a deep breath and fished out his phone, giving his grandmother a call. It was true that he wasn’t in a position to call the shots on such a huge matter that concerned the entire family.

“Hello, Grandmother. The medicine is indeed with Dustin. But, he has a condition that I can’t agree with…” Julian started discussing the issue with Alma once she picked up the call. His expression was quite a sight to behold, it changed with every second that passed. No one could tell what Alma was saying on the other end of the line.

“Dustin! Are you out of your mind? If the matriarch of the Nicholson family loses her temper, not only will we not be getting anything out of this, but we’ll also be implicated and get into trouble because of you!” Julie grumbled.

“Rhys! If my daughter loses her position as chairman because of you again, you’re never going to hear the end of this!” Florence was agitated.

Wouldn’t things have turned out just fine if he’d just agreed to give them the medicine? Why did he have to insist on making them pay such a ridiculously high price for it? Things would get out of hand if they burned bridges!

Just as Florence and Julie were about to lose their cool, Julian ended the call with a frown on his face. “Grandmother has agreed to your condition
