Left without a choice, Josephine answered the call.
“Is this Josephine Smith?” A raspy male voice was heard over the line. It was so jarring that it made
one feel exceptionally uncomfortable.
“I am she. What is it?” Knitting her eyebrows, Josephine thought it was a call from some random
“I want to let you know that the ecological park project isn’t something the Smith family is capable of
handling. If you know what’s good for you, you should pull out of the project. Or else, I’ll have no choice
but to force you out!” the voice over the line warned.
In response to the threat, Josephine’s face darkened. “What are you trying to say?”
“Isn’t it obvious?” The voice turned frosty. “I’m telling you to back out of the ecological park project!”
“What gives you the right?” Josephine’s expression turned grim when she heard the man’s words. “The
Smith family took over the project after the Blackwood family left Jadeborough. Why should I back out
just because you ask me to?”
“The Blackwood family?” The voice suddenly laughed insidiously. “They are nothing but one of our
pawns in Jadeborough. Without our help, they wouldn’t even have gotten the project in the first place.
“Josephine, do you know how much the project is worth? It’s worth billions. Do you think the Blackwood
family is able to take on the project just by themselves? My advice to you is to not go looking for
trouble. Otherwise, I can’t guarantee that you won’t be killed in a car accident whenever you go out!
Also, who knows what might happen to the Smith residence? What are you going to do if someone who
detests you sets fire to your home one day?”
It was a blatant threat against Josephine’s life.
Nevertheless, Josephine was unfazed by it. She snapped, “Are you threatening me? Aren’t you worried
that I’ll call the police on you?”
“The police? Do what you want. Do you think that I would dare call you if I was scared of the police?”
The voice neither cared nor was afraid at all.
It was obvious that the man was not to be trifled with.
“Josephine, let me give you a final piece of advice. You’re only given one life. Once you lose it, that’s it.
Hence, you had better think this through carefully.”
The moment the voice was done, the call ended with a click. With no opportunity to retort, Josephine
was so furious that she was trembling all over.
This was the first time she was taking over the Smith family’s business and managing such a huge
However, she had already received a death threat on the very first day of her job.
“What happened?” Jonathan couldn’t help but ask when he saw how Josephine’s body was shivering.
“Nothing, it’s nothing.” Josephine shook her head with a grim expression.
She didn’t tell Jonathan about the death threat because she knew he would only go to Zachary again.
She didn’t want him to make a habit of going to Zachary every time they encountered a problem.
“Really? Then why do you look distraught?” Jonathan pretended to be oblivious of what was going on.
In truth, his keen sense of hearing had caught every single word of the conversation, including those by
the mysterious voice.
However, since Josephine wasn’t willing to tell him, he decided not to pursue the matter any further.
“Perhaps I’m just too tired today.” Josephine was visibly out of sorts. Getting up to her feet, she headed
toward the bathroom. “I’m going to wash my face.”
However, she was in such a rush that she forgot to take her phone with her.
It wasn’t until the bathroom door slammed shut that Jonathan picked up her phone and gave the earlier
number a call.
A brief moment later, the man’s hoarse voice was heard. “How about it, Ms. Smith? You seemed to
have made your decision quickly.”
“No, she hasn’t decided yet.” Jonathan lit up a cigarette and walked out to the balcony. “I’m calling you
to tell you that you should just give up. The ecological park project definitely belongs to the Smith
family! Also, I would like to warn you that if you so much as touch a hair on Josephine’s head, I’ll make
sure that your entire family is wiped out.”
“What did you say? Did I hear wrongly?” the voice sneered in response to Jonathan’s words. “Are you
threatening me? How dare you threaten me when you don’t even know who I am?”
“Who you are isn’t relevant at all. All that matters is that if you want to play games, I’ll do so with you.
No matter who you are, your fate as a dead man was sealed the moment you made the call.”
Threatening Josephine had struck a nerve with Jonathan.
Anyone who attempted to do so would only meet their doom.
“You are no match for me.” The voice over the line scoffed at Jonathan’s words. “It seems that you
won’t know any better until it’s too late! But no matter, I’ll send you a coffin tomorrow so that you’ll know
what death actually looks like.”
Immediately after that, the man ended the call.
At the same time, Jonathan heard the bathroom door open. He quickly deleted his call history and put
the phone back to where it was. After that, he pretended as if nothing had happened at all.
Even after washing her face, Josephine was still visibly troubled.
As such, she was too distracted to realize that someone had used her phone.
“Darling, since you’re not in a good mood, why don’t we go out and relax?” Jonathan didn’t bring up the
earlier matter. Since he had deleted the call history, he also decided not to let Josephine know that he
had already gotten involved.
“No, it’s fine.”
Josephine shook her head as she had no interest to do so at all.
She was trying to figure out how to resolve the problem because she was concerned that something
horrible might happen the very next day.
“Come on! Why don’t I take you someplace to grab a bite?” Jonathan didn’t give her the opportunity to
say no. Taking her arm, he tugged her toward the door.
“Forget it. I’m really not in the mood.” With the matter weighing heavily on her heart, she had no
appetite for anything at all.
However, Jonathan didn’t give her a choice. Before she knew it, he had pulled her into the red
The moment she got in, it was too late to get out.
Resigned to her fate, she rubbed her temples and looked at Jonathan. “What would you like to have?”
“I want to have you!” Jonathan broke into a smile.
“Be more serious!” Josephine glared fiercely at him.
Nevertheless, she was visibly cheered up by Jonathan’s tomfoolery.
“I heard that there’s a newly opened barbeque stand in the southern part of the city that’s really good.
Why don’t we give it a try?” Just as he spoke, Jonathan floored the accelerator.
In a blink of an eye, the engine roared to life.
