 Season 7

Episode 76

(Communicating with family (1)

Noticing some kind of awkwardness on her aunt's face, Violet said quickly," Auntie, you should not worry that much. Austin is a very well-behaved child. Some time back he sent an email to me and even requested me not to work too much and take good care of myself."   

 Violet looked at Elsa right after her words and asked," Grandma, don't you also think that Austin is a good boy?"    Elsa nodded hurriedly and replied," Of course, Austin is a very good boy."   

 Elsa looked towards Selina and said," Selina, why don't you call Austin at night and ask him about how he is doing lately. It is okay for Wilson to give the child living expenses, but this time it's more then regular." Elsa turned to Wilson after she had finished, and said," Wilson, remember that you should discuss with Selina next time whenever you plan to give him extra living expenses."  

"Okay, Mom,"  replied Wilson. He looked at Selina with remorse in eyes and said," Well, don't be angry now. Let's call Austin later in the day, okay?"   

 "Remember to discuss this with me the next time you plan to do so, I am so worried about how Austin is doing there."

 Selina's tone was not very fierce. After all, she couldn't say anything as the elders were also present there. Besides, she knew her son well. who was quite good in studies and other matters but loved roaming about. She was sure that this time also he was using that money to travel here and there.     

"Okay, I will,"  quickly Wilson replied.    

 Seeing that Selina was not as angry as she was previously, Violet was happy and said in a rush," Auntie, come on, let us have a good dinner, then we can call Austin together after the dinner. I'll also call Lawrence. He also hasn't called me recently. I suppose he has forgotten his Princess Sister, do you think so too?"  

"Right, I think we have to teach these two bad boys a severe lesson,"  said Selina.     
"Yes, let's do that later together,"  said Violet as she nodded her head in agreement.     

"Okay, okay, let's have dinner first. I am totally famished."    

Right after the meal, Selina headed back to her room to give her son a call.    

 Holding on to the phone nervously, Selina anxiously waited for her son to pick up the phone.    

 "Hello, Mom,"  Austin's relaxed voice came from the other side of the phone.     "Austin, what have you been up to?" Selina asked him harshly.     

"Mom I was having a nap as we have classes in the afternoon,"  answered Austin, in a kind of lazy tone.     

Selina thought for a while and then she remembered that there was a jet lag between here and where her son was living right now.   

Selina calmed down after the realization and said," Can I ask you something, dear?"    

"I know what you have to ask, Mom,"  said Austin. He could have guessed what had happened and why his mother had been calling him at this hour. This time, he had asked his father for quite a big sum of money. Her mother must be thinking that he would be using the money for his adventure purposes.    

 Austin continued to say," I know you are asking for the two hundred thousand Father has given me. A part of it will be spent on my living expenses, and the other part will be used on something very crucial."    

"Can you tell me what will you use it for?" Selina felt that it was quite necessary for her to figure that out. Otherwise, she would have no idea even if her son was doing something which was unethical. 

He was abroad there was no way she could find out from here what he was up to.   

"I am planning to start a business with a few friends, Mom,"  Austin replied with sternness. "Our plan has been submitted to the relevant authorities for review and approval. Once we get the approval we will distribute the shares as per our respective funding. Since it is going to be a small company, the cost is also low."  

  Her son's words relaxed her. She was happy that her son actually used the money to do something fruitful instead of just wasting it on his silly fun escapades.    

 "Austin, I was just afraid that something might have happened to you,"  said Selina.     

"I know, Mom, but to be frank, although I am fun loving and like to travel around, I am always considerate about things that are serious, Mom, you have to trust me on this,"  firmly said Austin. His Mother was an amazing person. As long as he had her support, he felt that his business would be successful.   

"I trust you, Dear. But why didn't you tell me and your Father, as both of us run a company? Don't you think we could have guided you better?" Selina asked.     

"I know, I am just afraid that you will not agree with me on starting my own business. I also thought that you would ask me to go back to take over the H King Group, which Father has created. To be true, I wanted to build a company based on my own abilities, and develop it abroad. Once the company has stabilized overseas, I will shift base to our own country. And at that time I will move back and join you and Father." 

Austin told his mother that this was what he was currently planning. Although he was not sure how long it would take to implement his plan, right now his entire focus would be on the plan, and he would follow this path ardently.     

"Well, I am relieved since I know you have your own plan." There was a smile on Selina's face, and then she said to her son," Austin, although your Dad and I have thought about letting you take over the H King Group, we won't force you to do that if you don't want to. But if you consider it right you can send me your company's operational plan. I will check it and give you the best guidance possible. After all, your Mom has also studied global economic business management and has expertise in such areas. And, with so many years of experience, I am certainly more adept at this than you and your father."  

"Okay, Mom, do you know something? I have been waiting for such words of encouragement from you. Some of my partners are always worried about the risks and we were thinking if it is best to consult some experienced people. 

However, we haven't yet found time to do that. But now it seems that Mom you are going to be our helping hand in distress, you are our savior." Austin was extremely excited when he said the last sentence. Now, he didn't have to ask advice from any other person since his great Mother had promised to guide and help him out.     
"Have I told you before, that you are a bad boy, hmm? I have always told you that you can talk to me if you have anything in your mind. But you actually asked your Dad for money without even telling me and kept your business plan also a secret." Selina tried to act as if she was scolding Austin.
