Li Lei wanted to say that as long as Xiao Ling was fine, he could not care less about the head of the family position.
However, he knew that if he said something to that effect, it would only intensify the Old Master's hatred towards Xiao Ling and would not help things. Hence, he stayed in the meeting room and had an emergency call with the uncles in the family to decide on the way forward.
The matter was pretty grave this time.
Li Feng had overturned a huge mob in Latin America, killing dozens of people. There was a ripple effect as a result of this. The mob's friends banded together to launch a joint attack on the Li Family, who were now in a disadvantageous position with no allies. They were fending off the attack but only just. The situation was highly precarious.
When the emergency meeting had concluded, the Old Master instructed Li Lei. "Pack your things. We need to head back to the headquarters this instant."
