Translator:Henyee TranslationsEditor:Henyee Translations
Lu Yan looked at the scene in front of him proudly. It would not be easy for Qiao Xi to clear Gu Zheng’s name. If Gu Zheng did not give up the 5% shares today, his reputation would be ruined and he might even lose his position as director.
A trace of pride flashed past his eyes. He slowly stepped forward and said gently, “President Gu.”
Gu Zheng acted as if he did not hear him and ignored him at all. However, Lu Yan’s face was still gentle. He looked like a very patient person. He shook his head helplessly and advised softly, “President Gu, it’s been so long. You should go see Grandpa.”
His voice was not loud, but everyone was gathered in the hall. The people beside him naturally heard him and looked at the two of them in unison.
Lu Yan wanted everyone to hear it and let them know about the ugly things Gu Zheng had done. At that time, GU Zheng would not be able to protect his position as director!
Gu Zheng stopped in his tracks and turned his head slightly to glance at him condescendingly.
Seeing that he did not respond, Lu Yan continued to persuade him gently. “No matter what, Grandpa fell sick because of you. He’s still unconscious. Although you didn’t grow up in the Lu family, Grandpa is still your family.”
When Qiao Xi heard Lu Yan’s words, a trace of disdain appeared in her eyes.
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and exuded a powerful pressure. His thin lips parted slightly as he said casually, “Young Master Lu, my time is very precious. I hope you can cut the crap.”
Before Lu Yan could speak, a higher-up of Lu Corporation who was in the meeting with Lu Yan stood up. He did not know what was going on in the hall, so he rushed in front of Gu Zheng and said indignantly, “President Gu, don’t pretend anymore!”
The corners of Qiao Xi’s mouth curled up. As expected, the Lu family had already planned it out. They started attacking Gu Zheng as soon as the meeting ended. They were now accusing him of being heartless and unfilial in front of everyone.
In the eyes of everyone, Lu Yan had always been gentle and elegant. He would not take the initiative to criticize Gu Zheng, but someone would speak up on behalf of him. Qiao Xi had an impression of this higher-up beside him. Previously, at the perfume exchange, this higher-up was always by Lu Yan’s side.
This person must have been instructed by Lu Yan on what to say. Next, this person would definitely accuse Gu Zheng of making Chairman Lu sick in front of everyone and roast him while taking the moral high ground.
“President Gu, do you want me to say what you’ve done in front of everyone?” The higher-up was furious. Those who did not know better would think that Gu Zheng had really done something treasonous.
Qiao Xi revealed a meaningful smile because Lu Xiang’s expression was already terrifyingly gloomy. She hurriedly wanted to go forward to stop him, but the disdainful gazes around her caused her to not have the courage to go forward. She was afraid that she would become the target of public criticism again.
The people who found out the truth in the hall just now were not in a rush to stand up for Gu Zheng. They all looked at the Lu family with disdain. The Lu family’s people all lowered their heads with ashen expressions like defeated roosters.
Lu Xiang gritted her teeth. The Lu family had already lost everything today. She could not make a fool of herself anymore. Hence, she braced herself and went forward. She opened her mouth with difficulty and said in a hoarse voice, “Ah Yan, forget it. President Gu…”
“What did I do?” A cold voice interrupted Lu Xiang’s words. Gu Zheng was expressionless. His long eyes narrowed as he looked coldly at the higher-up.
The higher-up was so scared that his body trembled. Then, he straightened his neck and was about to retort. Lu Xiang’s expression changed drastically. Now that the Lu family’s plan had been exposed, Gu Zheng must also know about it. He deliberately interrupted her and did not let her open her mouth to remind the higher-up and Ah Yan. He wanted Ah Yan to take the bait and lose his reputation in public again.
No! Their Lu family could not be embarrassed anymore!
Before Lu Xiang could stop them, the higher-up shouted with a red face, “Mrs. Gu schemed to deceive Young Master Lu and stole 5% of our Lu family’s shares. She even made Chairman Lu sick from anger. Will you only be satisfied with me telling you this directly?
“I originally thought that since you were also a member of the Lu family, I shouldn’t blow things up and embarrass you, but I didn’t expect you to be so unforgiving. You only have eyes for the Lu family’s shares. Chairman Lu is already sick, yet you’re still forcing the Lu family to hand over the shares. Even though the old master has been sick for so long, you didn’t even visit Chairman Lu. He was so angry over the matter of the shares that he fell sick, but you don’t feel guilty at all. You’re unfilial!”
The entire venue fell silent. Everyone who already knew the truth had mocking expressions as they looked at Lu Yan.
