Translator:Henyee TranslationsEditor:Henyee Translations
Everyone looked at Lu Yan in disdain. Just now, Mrs. Gu had already explained the entire situation clearly. In the end, it was Lu Yan who was too greedy and wanted Gu Zheng’s shares. Who knew that he went out for wool but came home shorn? He even lost his own shares. Even if Chairman Lu was angered to the point of falling sick, it was because of Lu Yan, that idiot. He was the one who proposed a bet and even forced Mrs. Gu to ride a horse. Now that he had lost, he wanted to go back on his word and frame Mrs. Gu. He even spread rumors about President Gu.
After the higher-ups of Lu Corporation finished criticizing him, Gu Zheng suddenly chuckled and looked up.
Seeing that he was so calm, Lu Yan had a bad feeling. He did not understand why Gu Zheng was smiling. Although this matter could not bring Gu Zheng down, it was not a good thing for Gu Zheng either. At most, it would affect his reputation. At worst, it might affect the entire Gu Corporation.
How could he still smile at a time like this?
Lu Yan had already sensed that something was wrong. He hurriedly stopped the higher-up. The uneasiness in his heart grew stronger and stronger. He could only say gently, “President Gu, this is Director Liu. He’s a little rash. Please forgive him for what he just said.”
Gu Zheng raised an eyebrow. “You’re saying that I caused Chairman Lu to be unconscious for the sake of Lu Corporation’s shares? The Lu family doesn’t even blink when they lie!”
The entire venue was silent. Lu Yan frowned, and his expression was exceptionally ugly. He had already decided not to pursue the matter with Gu Zheng, but Gu Zheng actually accused them of lying in public.
Lu Xiang opened her mouth with difficulty, wanting to tell Lu Yan that the plan had failed, but Gu Zheng did not give her a chance to speak. His voice was low and hoarse, carrying a strong sense of oppression. She, who was standing in front of him, seemed to have stopped breathing.
“Even at this point, do you still think that your plan is foolproof, Young Master Lu?”
Suddenly, Lu Yan’s heart skipped a beat. He seemed to have understood what Gu Zheng meant, but he really did not understand what went wrong with his plan. Why was it exposed?
Lu Yan hesitated for a moment and frowned. “President Gu, I don’t understand what you mean. I’m talking to you about Grandpa being sick. Why are you changing the topic? I know that you’re all-powerful outside and no one dares to offend you, but as a junior, why can’t you visit Grandpa?”
The hall was eerily silent like a storm was about to break.
Lu Xiang clenched her fists tightly as her ears buzzed. Cold sweat broke out on her forehead. As long as she opened her mouth to stop Lu Yan, Gu Zheng would interrupt her. He wanted Ah Yan to lose his reputation in public!
At this moment, everyone was definitely discussing the Lu family in their hearts. If Ah Yan continued, then…
However, in the next second, Gu Zheng did not give Lu Yan a chance to speak at all. His eyes were filled with mockery as he glanced at Lu Yan with a hint of warning. This gaze was a great humiliation to Lu Yan.
The anger in Lu Yan’s heart surged. “Gu Zheng…”
“Young Master Lu, I haven’t settled the score with you yet, but you’re already looking for trouble with Ah Zheng.” At this moment, Qiao Xi suddenly spoke and smiled meaningfully.
Her voice was very soft, but it carried a trace of disdain and teasing. “Oh! Right, I remember now. Young Master Lu, you were still in the meeting room just now and don’t know what went on outside.”
Lu Yan’s heart trembled. He felt that something was wrong and subconsciously looked at Lu Xiang.
At this moment, Lu Xiang lowered her head. Her back felt like it was weighed down by a thousand pounds of rock. It was so heavy that her lungs hurt and she could not breathe. She said with difficulty, “Ah Yan, I…”
“Lu Yan, you were the one who suggested the bet and even forced Mrs. Gu to make a bet with you. It’s just that you didn’t expect her to win. Now, you don’t want to fulfill the bet, so you’re scheming against Mrs. Gu and President Gu behind their backs. Did you really think your plan was flawless?”
At this moment, a dignified male voice came from the crowd. Everyone looked in the direction of the voice. It was Gu Corporation’s partner and the person in charge of Qingfeng Entertainment and Heavenly Voice Entertainment, Mr. Li.
“I really didn’t expect the Lu family to play tricks behind our backs for this bit of shares. With people like the Lu family at the international meeting, I don’t think the rest of us should even attend this meeting!”
The moment that was said, Lu Yan felt as if his head had exploded. He could not even hear the voices around him and was only immersed in his own world.
How was that possible? How did they know about this?
He recalled Lu Xiang’s guilty expression just now and the disdainful gazes of the people around him. He instantly felt as if he had been struck by lightning. Gu Zheng had been in the meeting room just now. Who exactly turned the situation around and calmed public opinion in such a short period of time? Who caused the Lu family to fall into a predicament?
