PERFECT REVENGE : CEO'S LOVELY MISTRESS - Chapter 426 - 426 Surrender
“We don’t understand why you said that. Isn’t the cooperation between our companies a serious matter?”
Heri and Nita both did not understand it. They thought that Christian really wanted to cooperate with their company.
Who would want to give money for free to someone else? Of course this cooperation would benefit both parties, right?
Hartono laughed when he heard those words. His laughter sounded mocking, as if mocking Heri and Nita as idiots. “You think everything is that simple? Your son has a good relationship with Ella, right?” Hartono looked at Heri and Nita with disgust. “Don’t you guys know that it was Ella who asked Christian to help your son?”
Heri and Nita looked at each other in disbelief. They know that Liam and Ella are on good terms. They had been close friends since childhood.
But they didn’t think it was Ella who helped Liam.
For some reason, they didn’t realize that very obvious thing. Why does Christian, who doesn’t know them, suddenly offer a partnership that can get them out of their problem?
They were too naive…
After seeing Hartono’s attitude towards them, Heri and Nita knew that Hartono did not want the Adipamungkas Family to have a cooperation with the Jaya Family. But since Ella wanted to help them, she asked Christian to do it, making Hartono hate Ella.
“That woman is very cunning,” seeing the two people in front of him say nothing, Hartono added in an annoyed tone. He showed his hatred for Ella openly.
Heri and Nita really liked Ella. To them, Ella was like the daughter they never had. They knew that unlike her bad half-sister, Ella was very kind. They knew Ella was doing this to help their family.
But unfortunately, Hartono does not have the same feelings as Heri and Nita towards Ella. Hartono considers Ella as a woman who is evil and cunning, intending to control their property.
“Ella isn’t that bad, sir. She is a very good person,” Heri said, defending Ella.
He knew that Ella had suffered a lot and he didn’t want to see Ella suffer any more. He couldn’t accept it when he saw someone insulting Ella, even though that person did not know how Ella’s true nature was.
“She helped you because you helped her,” Hartono snorted coldly, looking at Heri with cynicism in his eyes.
Nita glanced at her husband and saw that he was speechless because he was so angry. Finally, she asked. “What does this meeting have to do with our cooperation?”
“If you cooperate with the Maheswara Family, the Adipamungkas Family doesn’t have to interfere anymore.” Hartono sneered and his gaze fell on Heri. “I know you all understand what went wrong. Marrying Indri is your best choice.”
After that, Hartono got up from his chair. “Now, your family is having a hard time, right? You know that I can put your family in more trouble.” This threat was the last push he could give the two people before him.
He believes the threat is most effective.
When he heard the threat, Budi’s eyes flashed with greed. His goal is getting closer!
Silently, Heri clenched his fists tightly. He seemed to hesitate for a long time until he finally gave up. “Alright, we will make Liam and Indri engaged.”
He didn’t want Ella to bear it all alone. He doesn’t want Ella to be considered bad by Hartono and others just because she wants to help Liam and their family.
This is a family matter, not Ella’s responsibility.
Meanwhile, Budi is feeling very happy now. He started to plan when he should tie their two families together. “In a little while, I will have my birthday party. How about we all have an engagement on that day so that our happiness will be doubled?”
Hartono could see that the two people in front of him had given up and his heart felt very relieved. This is how one should behave when dealing with him, unlike Ella. The girl was always against him.
After leaving the Maheswara Family’s house, Heri immediately contacted his son.
“What? Did you promise to engage me with Indri?” Liam shouted.
Liam is a calm and gentle child. Even in the event of a major problem, he would not be swayed.
But when he heard the news from his father, he could not accept it.
Why did his mother and father suddenly agree that he would be engaged to Indri? He knew very well that his parents did not like Indri.
Beside him, Christian is reading a file about their collaboration. Hearing what Liam said, he raised his head and frowned.
If Liam and Indri were engaged, then this cooperation was completely unnecessary. From a businessman’s point of view, if Christian continued their cooperation, he would not gain anything.
“I don’t want to marry Indri,” Liam said firmly. He didn’t want to make Ella sad. The only thing Liam wants is to protect Ella. He didn’t want to be engaged to a woman who had hurt Ella. He didn’t even want to be near Indri, let alone get engaged to her.
“I know you don’t want to. But today, Christian’s grandfather came and met us in person.” Heri took a deep breath. “I don’t want to ignore your wishes, but what he said in front of us was so bad. And I know you don’t want Ella to be insulted like that either.”
After his father said this, Liam understood. Since Hartono said bad things about Ella, finally his father and mother agreed to this engagement.
“I see,” Liam nodded, but his voice sounded very cold.
He didn’t think Hartono would do something like this.
He knew that the old man didn’t really like Ella. But what Hartono said was beyond his expectation.
After that, Liam ended the call and turned to Christian who was sitting and reading the documents seriously.
“Your grandfather came to meet my parents and told me to get engaged to Indri.”
Christian’s hands suddenly stopped moving. He looked up at Liam. “Is that true?”
The answer left Liam at a loss for what to say.
Rumors out there say that Christian and Hartono have a strained relationship. There is no need to ask the reason for their deteriorating relationship.
The only reason that could shake the good relationship between the grandfather and the grandson was Ella.
Liam hasn’t mentioned the reason why Hartono met his parents, but he’s sure Christian can already guess.
“It’s because of Ella,” Christian said confidently.
Liam was silent for a moment, but didn’t stop their conversation. “Take good care of her.”
“I know,” there was a rarely seen expression on Christian’s face when he said it.
