Chapter 258 Hidden Laboratory
Donald was standing right in front of him.
Tyrone queried, “Will you get in my way if I obtain the permit for the land reclamation project from other firms?”
His eyes had narrowed into slits dangerously.
As long as Kingsley did not object, Tyrone would keep Kingsley, even if it meant making an enemy of the Horizon Group!
“I don’t mind, but first, you’d have to find someone who’s willing to give up such a major project to you,” Kingsley replied indifferently.
Tyrone nodded. “All right, then. Will you be joining us for a meal?”
He acted as though nothing had happened earlier. It was almost like Kingsley had not just slapped him.
Kingsley merely cast him a quick glance before getting up to leave.
The crowd parted for him.
Tyrone then turned to Donald. “You gave me a surprise, and it wasn’t a pleasant one.”
“I know, but I don’t mind,” Donald replied expressionlessly.
“You seem to have an ace up your sleeve. Well, it matters not. I’ll be sure to find out everything by today.” Tyrone placed his silk handkerchief in his pocket before continuing, “After that, I’ll have some free time to deal with you.”
“I’m looking forward to it.” Donald nodded in acknowledgment.
Tyrone stared at Donald for some time before eventually leaving.
The ceremony had been a catastrophic failure, so he had no intention of staying any longer.
No matter what, he would not leave Pollerton empty-handed, and he vowed to get the project, marry Jennifer, or find a compatible heart and bone marrow transplant.
The crowd slowly dispersed after the commotion died down.
Reina walked over to Donald’s side and massaged his temples. She asked gently, “You must be tired, right?”
Donald replied, “I’m fine. Also, please keep your distance from me. It’s dangerous.”
Reina walked before Donald and squatted down, surreptitiously revealing her cleavage. “I’m not scared. As long as you’re here, I have nothing to be afraid of.”
Donald patted her on the head. “Silly girl.”
Reina placed her head on Donald’s lap and mumbled, “I had nothing from the start. If it weren’t for you, who knows what state I’d be in now?”
Donald sighed. “Don’t think about it too much.”
“Now you’re making me jealous,” Lana whined.
Donald turned to face her, and she quickly slid toward him and leaned against him. “I’m not afraid, either.”
Reina was petite and adorable, while Lana was full of mature charm. The latter was literally exuding pheromones from her body, and Donald caught a faint scent coming from her.
“I’m much better than Jennifer. I don’t have to take care of my brother, and my parents aren’t greedy and materialistic people. In terms of looks, I’m not inferior to her in any way. She’s no match for me in terms of skills either! Would you like to try me out?” Lana bit her lip.
Charles, who had been watching uncomfortably from the side, quickly left the room and even closed the door behind him.
Donald remained silent.
“Come on, say something. You may tease me if you want,” Lana whispered by Donald’s ear, gently blowing air into it.
“There are several corpses here. Do you really think this is the time and place?” Donald inquired.
“That doesn’t matter.” Lana did not seem to mind.
Suddenly, Donald’s phone rang. It was Lilith. “Lord Campbell, there’s an update on the situation.”
“Wait for me outside the substation,” Donald instructed.
After that, he sped toward the substation in his car. The substation was just a cover, as there was a S7-Grade laboratory underneath it!
It was a specialized military research laboratory where the Rising Dragon Project was to be executed.
The Rising Dragon Project required twenty-eight satellites to be launched from four different locations. If equipped with tactical weapons such as intercontinental missiles, it could become the world’s most advanced precision-strike system. It had no blind spots around the globe and a precision of thirty centimeters.
