Campbell looked at the two people sitting on the other side of his desk. Two of his men were standing behind them making sure they stayed put.
“I have heard about your plans. If you think you are able to take me in order to get back at my father and grandfather…” He looked at Tierra. “…your uncle, then go ahead and try. Right here I am.”
He looked at the two men and grinned. “I can promise you that you will not leave this office if you even try. Not alive at least.”
He sat back in his chair and looked at Tierra. “You know your uncle has retired, right?”
He saw her nod. “You know who now has control over all aspects of the business?” He grinned when he saw her eyes grow wide. “Smart girl.”
He leaned forward and put his hands on the desk in front of him as he looked at the two of them. “Just so it is very clear to you both, I am a lot like my grandfather…both in the construction business and the other. I will stop at nothing to protect my family.” He looked at his cousin. “Even if means having to deal with another family member.”
He saw the look Tierra gave Willie. “I see you fully understand what I mean. I suggest that the two of you forget all about this little plan of yours to go after my father and grandfather. If anything at all happens to them, the first people I will be talking to will be the two of you. If I even hear a whisper of the two of you going after my father or grandfather, I will find you.”
He looked at Willie. “You are my Aunt’s nephew. That makes you family. You can either fall under my protection like the rest of the family, or you can go off on your own and take your chances.”
Tierra looked at Willie. “I think maybe we should listen to Campbell. You have a family to think about now.”
Willie nodded. “I think you are right. I don’t want my kids growing up without me. I know what it’s like to not have a father. I don’t want that for them.”
Campbell looked at the two of them. “My men will take the two of you home. I suggest you remember this conversation. I won’t be as nice the next time.”
He watched them both leave with his men following them. He shook his head and sighed. When was this shit going to be over?
