Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2223
Though they honestly hadn’t completely dismissed the idea of continuing to leech off the family, nobody dared to further provoke Takuya at the moment. After all, they were all well aware of what kind of person he was, and they had a feeling that he would retract his statement sooner or later and allow them to return to the family.
If that truly was the case, then it was only a matter of time before they would be able to get their hands on those benefits…!
Regardless, after they left, Takuya simply slumped against his chair before waving his slightly trembling hand while saying, “Close the door…”

Watching as Aiden nodded before doing as Takuya ordered, the patriarch then looked at the few Futabas whom he had allowed to stay whom he knew sincerely cared about the family before asking, “… Do you think I did the right thing…?”
“Absolutely, patriarch! Had you allowed them to stay, they would’ve surely leeched off the business like no tomorrow! Regardless, they’re not what you should be focusing on, patriarch! Now that we’ve struck a deal with the Fareast Consortium, we’ll finally be able to bring our family back to its former glory!”
“That’s right! They should’ve been kicked out ages ago! Remember, had it not been for them, our family wouldn’t have gotten to this sorry state in the first place!”
As the remaining Futabas yelled on, it was clear that they had been dissatisfied with those bloodsuckers for the longest time. Though receiving those contracts was a joyous thing to hear, they were honestly even happier about the fact that those leeches had finally been kicked out.
Shaking his head with a subtle smile, Takuya then reverted to his serious façade before pointing at two Futabas standing near him while declaring, “Alright, settle down. I’ll be placing you two in charge of the Fareast Consortium business. Remember to pay keen attention to everything you do with them! We were only able to partake in this collaboration due to
Gerald’s help, so if you screw it up, don’t even think about returning to the family!”
“Worry not, patriarch! We won’t let you or Mr. Crawford down!” declared the two in respectful tones while alternating gazes between Gerald and Takuya.
“Well said. Either way, you may leave now. If anything comes up, I’ll be sure to contact you. Oh, and I’ll also be sending you the number of one of the Fareast Consortium’s secretaries later. Contact him when you need to later on,” replied Takuya as he clapped his hands together. Honestly, he couldn’t deny that kicking so many people out at once was making him feel uneasy
By the time they left, only five people remained in the parlor.
Turning to face Gerald and his daughter, Takuya who had now let his guard down a little was prompted to say, “Well that happened. Regardless, I wonder why Suke didn’t come… After all, he was always the first to rush in whenever family meetings were held. With that in mind, it’s a bit strange that he wasn’t here earlier…”
Recalling his previous encounter with Suke, Gerald paused for a moment before saying, “I wonder if it’s because of his connection with the Hanyus…”
“… You say that, but do you have proof that he’s really with them…?” muttered Takuya, suddenly sounding slightly vigilant again.
“Not for the time being. Still, it doesn’t change the fact that everything that he’s done and said to me has been immensely suspicious…” replied Gerald as he shook his head.
“Well, I get where you’re coming from. Honestly, I’ve had a feeling that something was off with the family in recent years as well. After all, far too many changes had occurred without warning! In no time at all, the family simply ended up collapsing without almost zero chance of recovery! What more, how had the Hanyus even found out that Fujiko was participating in that competition back when they attempted to assassinate her? Someone from the family must have been a snitch!” muttered Takuya as he analyzed the situation with a frown.
