lt;pgt;Jerry's uncle, Caleb, opened a cosmetics company in Xedells, and even though he had earned himself
a reputation, the market there was saturated. Specter Corporation operates in the retail industry and
has large shopping malls all over the country. If I can forge a deal with them, my company will be able
to penetrate the local market.
lt;pgt;Cooper was aware of the cosmetic brand and that it was doing well overseas.
lt;pgt;Since the business owner was both courteous and reasonable, the two parties did not take long to
reach an agreement. The fact that the person was Jerry's relative also helped.
lt;pgt;When Jerry returned to the table, the two businessmen were already done talking shop. In fact, they
had started drinking.
lt;pgt;After pulling up a chair beside Cooper, Jerry sat down and inquired curiously, “Aren't you and Ms.
Loake close? Why are you exacting your revenge by taking advantage of her moment of weakness?”
lt;pgt;“You haven't heard? Sally's father was sent to prison,” informed Jerry in a soft voice after realizing that
Cooper was unaware of the situation.
lt;pgt;Immediately, Cooper paused his smoking and turned to look at the man beside him. “What happened?”
lt;pgt;While he was absent from work, the political landscape in Jadeborough shifted drastically.
lt;pgt;Robert was immediately sent to jail after being charged guilty of not only accepting others into the army
through improper channels but also taking bribes. Since the Zane family had no other descendants, the
network Robert built in the military collapsed as soon as he got locked away. lt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;Gerald was also sent to prison after solid evidence indicated that he had sexually assaulted a minor
and was in possession of illegal weapons.
lt;pgt;Everyone in the military or political circles knew about the man's scandal. Sally's mother got so upset
that she passed away the same day Gerald was sent to jail, and following that was the fall of the Loake
lt;pgt;Sally never joined the military, so she lost everyone she could depend on the moment her family was
lt;pgt;Then, Jerry waited until his uncle left the room to answer a phone call before speaking freely with
Cooper. “From what I heard, the Zanes and the Loakes were unwilling to work together. Since that
person couldn't make use of the two major forces in the military, he had no choice but to be ruthless.”
lt;pgt;Cooper thought it was only natural that Jerry knew about the political news even though the man's
forces were stationed in Xedells because of the Homptons' bodyguards.
lt;pgt;“Who's that person you're talking about?” inquired Cooper calmly, taking a drag on his cigarette.
lt;pgt;Although they were in Cooper's territory, Jerry still thought they should be careful, so he dipped his
finger in his coffee and wrote a name on the table.
lt;pgt;After lowering his head to glance at the table, Cooper pressed the butt of his cigarette on the name. “I
wouldn't be surprised if this person could remove both the Zanes and Loakes in a discreet and
organized manner.” lt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;Jerry then took a sip of his drink and kept silent for a while before continuing, “General Zeigler made a
huge sacrifice on the battlefield; his parents and siblings died in battle, leaving him all alone. His years
of service also caused him severe illnesses. Luckily for him, the higher-ups gave the Zeigler family
complete control over the planning of Baykeep's development.”
lt;pgt;Besides their capability, Herbert's eldest and second eldest sons were respectively assigned favorable
positions in the military and politics because the brass wanted to honor their family's contribution.
lt;pgt;It almost seemed as if the entire Baykeep belonged to the Zeiglers.
lt;pgt;However, times had changed, and so had the people at the higher-ups. Although they did not like it,
they had already picked a side.
lt;pgt;Cooper's eyes gradually turned grim. “They're planning to make a move against the Zeigler family?”
lt;pgt;“The Zeiglers have always pledged their allegiance to the country, not any individual. That was why
they rarely picked sides or got themselves involved in any way,” explained Jerry before shrugging.
“That person has no problem letting the Zeiglers keep Baykeep, but they have to fall in line.”
lt;pgt;“Your words reminded me of something,” stated Cooper while staring at the soaked cigarette butt. “Do
you know that a severe plague broke out in Baykeep in mid-June?”
lt;pgt;“I do. The citizens of Baykeep even asked for help from Xedells because they were short-handed.”
Suddenly, Jerry turned his head sideways to look at Cooper as though he understood what the man
was implying. “I heard from Armand that this matter was related to Genevieve's step-brother. Is that
