Chapter 196 Staying Over
Elisa let out a cold snort in her mind, knowing that Norman was unwilling to put her in a position that would utilize her expertise.
Similarly, she had no intentions to take back control for Benett Corporation even though she brought the subject up on this day. Since they had already signed the contract, it would be very difficult to make Norman return it to her.
To add a layer of challenge to her journey, her late father did not set up a will before he passed. As his elder brother, Norman had the right to inherit his legacy.
Nonetheless, she did not have many shares in her hand back then. Since the contract had already been signed, she decided to let it go.
What she was really after was not as simple as her shares; she wanted all the shares back from Norman’s family.
She also wanted to rip their hypocritical masks and chase them away from Benett Corporation.
“Go ahead, Uncle Norman.”
Meanwhile, both Rose and Linda remained silent, trusting their father’s decisions.
He must have his own reasons for doing so.
Norman sighed before continuing, “Liz, you know very well that our corporation relies heavily on business dealings and transactions with other companies, and we have shortages in the marketing department. Why don’t you start there?”
Elisa frowned, but she did not utter a word.
Upon hearing that, Linda sneered. Elisa is such a proud creature; she would never consider this. I bet Dad is using this excuse to deter her.
Norman smiled and sighed lamentfully. “Traditionally speaking, as a part of the Benett family, you are entitled to the position of a department manager directly. But, since you intend to take over the company, you have to build your name up with your solid skills. This will help you in your aspirations. Am I right?”
Elisa pursed her lips, thinking about his words quietly.
Thinking that she was unwilling to do so, Linda quickly advised her, “Liz, I’m also working there now, and I started from being a secretary. You must go through different hardships before being assigned a heavy task.”
Rose also sighed. “I know it’s not a pleasant option for you, but this is the reality. Otherwise, how would you make everyone listen to you? If you take over Benett Corporation directly without enough experience up your sleeves, it’s going to be chaos. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to see that, would you?”
She hesitated for another second before finally speaking, “I’ll consider it.”
Seeing that she had relented, Norman softened his stance slightly. Smiling at her, he said, “Sure, take your time. If you decide to take the opportunity, just let me know. I’ll make the arrangements for you so you don’t have to go through the formal processes.”
Elisa was speechless when she heard that. Does he mean that he’s making me take the backdoor? How sweet it sounds! They don’t know that entering my real intentions are to join the company to impress everyone with my skills. Since I said outright that I have plans to regain control over the company, Uncle Norman did not say precisely that he was unwilling to do so because he was worried that I might be recording the conversation. Hence, he used such methods to reject me. In this case, it would be easy for me to join the company in the future. I understand that he will not fulfil his side of the promise even if I have produced spectacular results – that would be impossible. Nevertheless, I will definitely take Benett Corporation back so that Dad’s hard work wouldn’t be taken over by these ungrateful scums!
“Liz, why don’t you stay the night? You are just a young woman, it’s not good that you always travel around late. We are your only remaining family since your father passed. You can treat me as your father, alright? Don’t be too hard on yourself, Liz. If you have any troubles, feel free to tell me.”
Elisa nodded after hearing that. “Thanks, Uncle Norman. I also have plans to stay the night.”
Both Linda and Rose were dumbfounded when they heard that.
Even Norman was momentarily stunned when he heard that. She has never been close to us. Is she really going to stay the night?
