30% of the J Corporation’s shares!
Clinton was really demanding a lot!
The J Corporation had acquired several listed companies and was now the largest shareholder of Ubereats.
The market value of the company alone was 15 billion dollars!
30% of the shares of the J Corporation were at least a few billion dollars!
A villa at Aegean Sea Hills cost at most a few million dollars. The cost of building one was much lower.
How did he have the guts to ask for so much from Jordan?
Jordan looked at Clinton and said, “Mr. Whitley, this is blatant extortion. Do you know how much 30% of the shares of J Corporation is worth? How dare you exchange your lousy villa with me for my shares?”
Clinton laughed and said, “Yes, I know my villa is not worth 30% of shares in your company.”
“But your approval is difficult to come by. Mr. Steele, you’re so wealthy, shouldn’t it be a piece of cake for you to create another J Corporation?”
Jordan was speechless. “I may be wealthy, but it doesn’t mean I have to do such a kind deed, right?”
Clinton laughed and replied, “Isn’t that coincidental? You want to enter the villa and without my consent, you won’t be able to enter even if you’re rich.”
“Unbridled! Clinton Whitley, you’re clearly trying to blackmail Mr. Steele!” Pablo was enraged.
Although Clinton was smiling on the surface, there was hidden malice in his smile.
Clinton looked at the roguish Pablo and said, “Yes, I’m out to extort Mr. Steele!”
Jordan and Pablo were both stunned. The short real estate developer in front of him was actually so blunt as to tell Jordan straight that he was extorting him!
With a murderous gaze in his eyes, Jordan said, “Mr. Whitley, do you know I can take your life countless times with those 30% of shares?”
Jordan was extremely straightforward. He wasn’t a fool either, so he’d rather use the money to hire a murderer instead of giving 30% of the J Corporation’s shares to Clinton.
However, Clinton was still fearless. “Mr. Steele, this is Houston and you’re new to this place, so don’t end up making a silly mistake.”
“You can’t beat a local even though you may be powerful elsewhere. Are you trying to scare me with that rented car of yours? Hah.”
“Besides, I have bodyguards to protect me, and if you dare to mess around and let your people break in here, I’ll call the police immediately.”
“I doubt you’d dare to go against the police!”
Clinton seemed to be certain that Jordan would definitely subdue and obediently give him 30% of his company’s shares to him for the sake of seeing Victoria.
Victoria was Jordan’s favorite woman, for whom he will lose everything, let alone 30% of the J Corporation’s shares!
However, Jordan was not a fool. He knew that Clinton obviously had a premeditated plan to blackmail him, so Jordan didn’t want to be a fool and give in to his tricks.
He wouldn’t give away 30% of the shares of his empire just for the sake of seeing Victoria.
Jordan looked at Clinton and said, “You should be Russell’s subordinate, right?”
Clinton and Pablo were both startled, as they didn’t expect Jordan to suddenly mention Russell.
In fact, when the guard at the door saw Jordan’s ID, Pablo felt that there was something strange about it.
‘Why did he barely react when he saw my ID but he reacted so intensely when he saw Jordan’s ID?’
There was only one possibility, and that was someone had previously already guessed that Jordan would be coming over, so he deliberately had the guards monitor every single person who entered. Once they found Jordan, they immediately started targeting him.
Clinton, a real estate magnate, had surprisingly rushed over late at night with just one phone call. It had probably been premeditated.
Clinton didn’t deny it and instead said, “I do know Russell. After all, we’re both businessmen in Houston and our businesses are rather developed. You’d definitely wouldn’t believe me if I said that I don’t know him. Haha.”
Jordan humphed coldly. He already understood what was going on.
Russell first took advantage of Jordan’s negligence towards Victoria to criticize Jordan before coaxing her into marrying him.
After that, he arranged for Victoria to stay at his friend Clinton’s villa in Aegean Sea Hills.
Russell knew Jordan would definitely come here to look for Victoria, so Russell and Clinton came forth to make things hard for Jordan in advance, demanding that he give Clinton 30% of the J Corporation’s shares in order to enter the villa!
“Very well, Russell Miller. How brazen of you to marry Victoria. It turns out that you’re just using Victoria as bait to blackmail me for money!”
Russell was a shrewd businessman, and Jordan felt he had reasons to do so.
Jordan would not fall for his trick, much less jump into Russell’s trap after realizing what it was.
Jordan warned Clinton, “Mr. Whitley, you can’t take my money that easily. I can tell you outright that I won’t give you a single penny today.”
“I’m asking you one last time to let me into your villa. If not, you might have to cry and beg me to get in!”
Hearing Jordan’s threat, Clinton laughed out loud and said, “Hahaha, Mr. Steele, you’re indeed very young. You actually said such childish words.”
“I know Mr. Steele is rich and I’m definitely poorer than you, but we’re a lawful society and this place is mine. No matter how rich you are, you can’t enter if I don’t want to let you.”
“If you don’t want to give up some money, you can forget about seeing your lover today!”
‘You want me to pay up?’
‘You’re not worthy of it, you’re a mere real estate magnate!’
“Good. Remember your words now. See you later!”
As Jordan spoke, he walked towards the car and instructed Pablo, “Go.”
Pablo left unwillingly, feeling way too embarrassed. He was the top gangster of Orlando, while Jordan was the president of the J Corporation.
In Houston, he couldn’t even enter a mere residential estate.
However, Jordan left in a rather determined manner, so Pablo couldn’t say anything either.
He pointed at Clinton viciously before reversing the car to leave.
“Take your time, Mr. Jordan. If you change your mind, feel free to call me. I want 30% of the J Corporation’s shares, not any more or less. Hahaha.”
After the car left, Clinton yelled brazenly at Jordan, who was in the car.
Pablo stepped on the accelerator and said to Jordan, “Mr. Jordan Clinton is too shameless. He knows that you’re rich, so he’s out to extort money from you.”
“Although it doesn’t matter what the price I have to pay for seeing Miss Clarke is, giving billions of dollars to such a person isn’t worth it at all!”
Jordan said coldly, “I won’t give those few billions of dollars worth of shares to him.”
It was no longer just a confrontation between Jordan and Clinton, but one between Jordan and Russell!
It was also their first exchange of blows!
If he couldn’t even deal with Clinton, Jordan wouldn’t be qualified to fight Russell, let alone snatch Victoria from Russell!
Jordan made a phone call to someone and said, “Send me the phone numbers of all the general managers, Perry Express, Ubereats, and all the companies under J Corporation in Houston!”
