Life at The Top – Chapter 1198

“Don’t think too much about it. ”

Jasper restated his answer. There was no way he could tell Baz the truth, because even if he did, what would he say? That he reincarnated from the future and now wanted to employ Baz because of the man’s capabilities and repay the kindness he was once shown?

Baz would only think that he was crazy if he said that.

“You want to change your life, and the opportunity I’m providing you now is your best bet. All you need to do is take the opportunity and do your best.”

Hearing how unclear Jasper’s explanation was, Baz nodded and did not think too deeply into it anymore.

Not when there was nothing to scam him of.

He did not have money and his appearance was average. Baz was an ordinary person, and he could not think of any thing he had that would cause Jasper to go through so much trouble to employ him.

“Other than Easy Media, I also have an investment company under my name. This company is actually my most important property and I’m planning to have you work there.”

Baz was stunned when he heard Jasper, and replied confusedly, “Investment? But I know nothing about investing.”

“No one is born with knowledge, everyone slowly learns what they know. I believe that you’re talented in this field, but most importantly, that you’d appreciate this opportunity more than any university student I can employ.”

Jasper chuckled before poking into the food and taking a bite.

“Eat. We’ll talk as we eat.”

Baz picked up his cutlery as well and spoke softly as he ate, “It’s just, Mr. Laine, could you give me a more ordinary position? Like working odd jobs or something. Investments are too specialized, and I don’t think I can do it well.”

“There’s no way I’d let you work odd jobs,” Jasper chuckled, “After spending so much effort just to find you and deal with that incident just now, there’s no way I’d employ you just so you could be a janitor. Why would I waste my effort and your potential on such a thing?”

“There’s nothing wrong with not knowing, nor will I personally put you in charge of a project right off the bat. I’ll have someone guide you when you start so you can accumulate experience. Once you’re experienced enough, then you’ll have your own team to lead.

“Investment is just a game of making more money with money. Once you’ve understood the rules, it’s actually much easier than you think.”

Baz was stunned when he heard Jasper.

He would never know that this was the same thing he told Jasper when the man first starting working for him.

Jasper was just returning the same piece of advice to him.

“Trust yourself a little more, being ordinary doesn’t mean you’re any worse than others. I must have my reasons for telling you to give it a try. Just believe yourself and believe in me. Then everything will be much easier.”

Baz did not reject Jasper any further upon seeing the lengths the man had gone to persuade him.

“Alright. Then, I’ll do my best.”

Jasper laughed out loud in response and raised his cup. “Then, let’s toast with tea to celebrate a new beginning in your life. I wish you all the best.”

“Thank you!”

Baz raised the teacup grandly and clinked it softly against Jasper’s before downing its contents. Baz felt his life suddenly brighten.

After lunch, Jasper gave Baz the address of his investment company in Nauritus City and 1000 Somer Dollars for transport.

“Wrap up your matters here and make your way over. I’ll have human resources arrange your job. Just ask for Chad Wright when you arrive and listen to his arrangements. He’s the Director of Human Resources a t the investment company.”

“There’s nothing much to wrap up, actually. I don’t have many friends here, just one relative. Now that the relative’s no more, I can leave at anytime,” Baz replied softly.

Jasper nodded and patted Baz’s shoulder.

“Everyone will have to live their own lives. The people you meet are no more than passing guests.”


Baz nodded sincerely. Suddenly, he took a step back and bowed deeply to Jasper.

“Mr. Laine, while I still don’t know why you had looked for me and offered me such an opportunity, it won’t change the fact that I’m immensely grateful to you. Thank you.”

Jasper watched as Baz’s taxi made its way toward the train station. Now that this matter had been dealt with, Jasper let out a sigh of relief as well.
