Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2214
“Just let him rest,” replied Gerald with a wave of his hand.
“… Very well. I’ll be waiting outside if you need me then,” replied the secretary, feeling relieved that he wouldn’t be blamed at the end of the day since Gerald had already told him not to wake Derrick up.
Once the secretary left, Takuya was prompted to ask, “… So… you really are acquainted with Chairman Derrick…?”

“I am, and I’m here to ask for his help,” replied Gerald with a nod.
“… I see. So… why exactly am I here…? Do you need my help with something too…?” asked Takuya who was still having a hard time registering all this.
“Negative. You’re here because I told Derrick to give the Futabas a few contracts to sign. Following that, your family should be able to return to its former glory in no time at all. Don’t worry, Derrick will definitely give you the best treatment possible,” explained Gerald with a subtle smile.
“…W-what?!” exclaimed Takuya as he instantly got to his feet.
“Calm down, patriarch. He owed me a favor, so I’m simply asking him to give you a hand. It’s nothing big, honestly. With that said, once he wakes up, he’ll let you have a look at the contracts. If there isn’t a problem, then you can sign them at the end of the day,” replied Gerald as he gently pushed Takuya back onto the sofa.
“…I …All this is simply too shocking…” muttered Takuya as he shook his head slightly. Honestly, he felt like all this was just a dream. After all, to think that he’d be able to cooperate with the Fareast Consortium again! If things went well, then their family would surely rise the ranks in three to four months! In fact, they could probably surpass their former glory!
“Again, it’s nothing too special,” replied Gerald as he lit another cigarette.
“Still… I… I really don’t know how to thank you…! You truly are my family’s savior…!” exclaimed Takuya as he held tightly onto Gerald’s hands in between sobs.
Takuya, for one, had already accepted that his family would no longer return to its former glory before this. Back then, he had told himself that as long as Fujiko could live her life safely, then nothing else mattered to him. However, now that Gerald had shown himself, Takuya was filled with hope again…!
“It’s alright, patriarch. You can save those words for later,” replied Gerald who knew that he was only doing all this for the sake of learning more about Yearning Island. With that in mind, he honestly wasn’t feeling like their savior at all.
Regardless, upon hearing that, Takuya simply nodded firmly in response…
Fast forward to two hours later, night had already fallen when a cough could be heard inside the room Derrick was in. Following that, the trio watched as a dizzy Derrick slowly made his way out of the room.
Upon seeing the trio waiting for him outside, Derrick immediately smacked his forehead a few times before asking, “H-how long was I out…?”
“About six hours,” replied Aiden after looking at his watch.
“… I see. I’ve truly delayed things for far too long… Apologies, but I guess I’m not much of a drinker, am I… Still, why didn’t any of you ask to wake me up…?” asked Derrick, clearly feeling guilty for making them wait.
“It’s fine, we had to wait for Mr. Futaba to arrive anyway,” replied Gerald as he waved his hand.
Nodding in response, Derrick then looked at Takuya who was sitting beside Gerald before rubbing his hands and saying, “A pleasure to meet you, Mr. Futaba. I’m Derrick Zima, the chairman of the Fareast Consortium. If I remember correctly, we cooperated once in the past, right?”
