Legal family documents hidden deep in a safe… Hum, a form of protection from others greed, might be how so many keep their secrets?
Craig grabbed his phone and dialed Carla. “No problem.”
Carla answered, “Yes sir.”
“Carla we’re going to need lunch around 1.”
“No problem.” Carla quipped.
“Let’s get started!” Craig said to Howard. “That only took an hour. Done, I’ve signed all the documents. Thanks for the loan of the pen. I may need to buy you a refill for this pen in fact I like this pen.” Craig said admiring the pen as he handed it back.
“Howard, my Father was not the slouch I thought he was. Aileen could not have taken this in the divorce. Do you think she knew and that’s why Samuel was,” Craig’s anger stopped his words.
“So devastated Craig?” Howard asked looking at Craig. “Yes, and the devious actions that he took,” Craig shook his head, “He pulled Mark into his scam!”
“That’s all over and done with Craig. There was no chance of them even knowing about this. AJ Incorporated has always been privately held, paid our taxes and our Dad’s attorney’s father Mr. Bradley Willsmith, was the only one who knew the papers were transferred into your name, and he passed away the year your father did Craig.”
“Should I call Mr. Vanderbilt about this or do you think this should stay with Mr. Willsmith Sr., Howard?” Craig asked as he grabbed the binder and pointed to the safe, “Should I lock it up now or do we still need it out Howard?” He asked.
Howard said, “Yes put it in the safe, that’s your copy. I’ll check with Dad but I’m thinking, first you need to find out more about your Awlsport connection before you get Mr. Vanderbilt involved in this.”
Howard looked at the clock as his phone rang. “Yes Tommy, Ok its 1 now, so you be home by 4.”
“Carla we’re ready for lunch,” Craig said opening the library doors.
“I’ll be right out, just want to check this message from Dad.”
“Craig, Dad has all the other papers ready. Oh he said after we finalize this it might be good to bring in your attorney. Hi Carla, yum your chicken salad, thanks.” Howard said smiling at her as she asked, “You two need water!” Placing down the glasses of water, Carla left them to their privacy.
“Let’s take a town run and pick up those papers. I’d like to really get a good look at this town!”
