Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 587
Chapter 587 Secret
“An adopted daughter has 30% of the shares, even more than Xu Anyi, but the real daughter doesn’t even have any. Do you think that’s reasonable?” Gu Zheng asked coldly.
“Mr. Xu, you know very well that the title is just a title. What really shows her status is the shares. If Xi Xi doesn’t have any shares, she’ll always be suppressed by Xu Anran.”
Xu Anran gritted her teeth.
No! The shares were hers!
That b*tch, Qiao Xi, had been waiting for this all along. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to return to the Xu family but that she had been coveting her shares and wanted to use this opportunity to snatch them away.
Xia Yunlou thought so too and said anxiously, “President Gu! You’re going too far! The shares are Anran’s. Why should Xi Xi take them away the minute she comes back? Although Xi Xi is our biological daughter, we can’t bully Anran like this! We’ve already given in and agreed to let Xi Xi be the eldest daughter of the Xu family, but the status of the heir can’t be changed. The heir can only be Anran.
“Xi Xi doesn’t have the ability to manage the company at all. If we give her all the shares, the company will be ruined by her! Instead of fighting with Anran, she should study hard and become more outstanding. She can only blame her bad luck when she was swapped back then. This has nothing to do with Anran!”
Old Madam Yin glared at her.
Gu Zheng’s expression did not change. Instead, he sneered indifferently. “What Madam Xu said makes sense. Although Xi Xi is your biological daughter, the law doesn’t specify that you must leave your shares to your biological child. I’ll naturally not force you.”
Xia Yunlou thought that he had compromised and heaved a sigh of relief.
“If you don’t agree to this request, then there’s nothing to discuss,” Gu Zheng said coldly.
Xu Anran’s scheme, Xu Anyi’s getting his bodyguards to commit murder, Xia Yunlou’s humiliation, and Xu Zhi’s coldness had all hurt his weak little woman. Not to mention 30% of the shares, even if he destroyed the entire Xu family, it would not be able to quell the anger in his heart.
They did not dote on their daughter who had led a wandering life for 20 years. Instead, they let the instigator of the matter stay in the Xu family and treated her well. Instead, they let their biological daughter return to the Xu family only for her to continue suffering. Now, they were not even willing to compensate her with 30% of the shares.
Good! Very good! Then they shouldn’t blame him for being merciless!
Gu Zheng’s gaze was malicious as he said, “Mr. Xu, Madam Xu, I’ve given you a chance, but I didn’t expect that you would still make my wife unhappy because of Xu Anran. As long as Mrs. Gu is unhappy, then I, Gu Zheng, am unhappy as well. From today onward, the Xu family has nothing to do with me!”
The last sentence was filled with anger. It was like a thunderbolt striking everyone’s hearts. It shocked Xu Zhi so much that his whole body trembled.
In the next second, Gu Zheng regained his gentle expression and held Qiao Xi’s hand. “Go upstairs and rest.”
Xu Zhi’s body softened, and he almost fell to the ground. If President Gu attacked the Xu family, then the Xu family would be completely destroyed. He would never allow that to happen.
He was about to plead when
“President Gu! Wait a minute! Do you really want to treat the Xu family like this for Qiao Xi? Although Qiao Xi is already married to you, she’s not suitable for you at all. Only a top socialite like Anran can serve you well. Why can’t you give Anran a chance? You’ll definitely like her!
“Anran doesn’t care about anything else. As long as she’s with you, she won’t care about the past. But a woman like Qiao Xi definitely won’t be able to tolerate it. President Gu, you’ll definitely regret it in the future!”
Qiao Xi’s face sank. What? They wanted to snatch her man?
Gu Zheng’s gaze was malicious and insidious. “Madam Xu, you’re such a good mother! Are the words ‘a woman like Qiao Xi’ something that should come out of the mouth of a mother?”
“Although these words are harsh, I’m just telling the truth! President Gu, if Qiao Xi knows about your secret, she definitely won’t be able to accept it. But our Anran is gentle and has always loved you deeply. She won’t mind your past. Qiao Xi will find out about it sooner or later. When that time comes, she’ll definitely have a falling out with you!”
Everyone looked at the screaming Xia Yunlou with disdain.
Gu Zheng’s mocking gaze landed on her as the corners of his lips slowly curled up. “I’ve always been open and honest. Why don’t you tell me what my secret is, Madam Xu?”
