Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 645
Chapter 645: Threatened
The middle-aged woman choked and said, “I’m Director Feng from Gu Corporation’s finance department.”
Qiao Xi nodded to indicate that she heard her. Before she could say anything, Director Feng said, “Mrs. Gu, I wish to talk to you.”
Qiao Xi stared at the middle-aged woman in front of her and sized her up before looking at Xu Anran. She suddenly realized that something was off, so she smiled indifferently. “Alright, what do you want to say to me, Director Feng?”
Director Feng glanced at Xu Anran and quickly said, “Mrs. Gu, I’ve been working in Gu Corporation for more than ten years and have always been conscientious. However, President Gu wants to fire me. Can you plead for me on the account that I’ve been working for the company for so many years?”
Qiao Xi’s expression was indifferent. Gu Zheng wanted to fire her, so why was she looking for her?
Gu Zheng had always had his own reasons for doing things. Since she was fired after working for the company for more than ten years, it must be because she had done something wrong. Otherwise, Gu Zheng would not have done this.
Qiao Xi did not know what had happened, so she naturally would not agree to her request. “Director Feng, I’m sorry, but I can’t help you with this. Since Ah Zheng has already made his decision, he must have his reasons.”
Director Feng hurriedly said, “Mrs. Gu, I did do something wrong, but it’s not a big deal. Moreover, this matter is related to you, so I can only look for you.”
Qiao Xi was puzzled. Related to her? She had never seen this person before. Moreover, she had never cared about the company’s matters. What did this have to do with her?
Before Qiao Xi could say anything, Xu Anran tried to persuade her. “Sister, Dad and Mom have always told us to be tolerant and magnanimous since we were young. Director Feng has worked so hard for so many years. How could you fire her because of you?”
Gu Zheng had just reached the door when he heard this. He stopped in his tracks and smirked.
It seemed that there was more than one person who wanted to make things difficult for Mrs. Gu. Apart from Director Feng, who had been fired, there was also the b*tch, Xu Anran. The two of them were in cahoots to bully Mrs. Gu?
He knew that these two women were up to no good, but others might not. If Mrs. Gu fell into their trap and was misunderstood by others, she would definitely be very sad!
Director Feng cried and said, “Mrs. Gu, I only stood up for Qiao Rou. I didn’t know that Qiao Rou was the illegitimate daughter back then. I was also deceived by her, so I said those words. It’s only right that you hate me, but you can’t make me lose my job!”
Xu Anran immediately seized the opportunity and said, “Xi Xi, no matter what, Director Feng has been working in Gu Corporation for more than ten years. How can you fire her just because of a few words? Qiao Rou did do something wrong, but this has nothing to do with Director Feng! She was deceived by her. You shouldn’t be so unforgiving, right?!”
Qiao Xi’s eyes narrowed slightly as she chuckled. “Sister, do you think I should look for Gu Zheng and get him to take back his order to fire her?”
Director Feng had a pleading expression, but Qiao Xi’s eyes suddenly turned cold in the next second. “Ah Zheng fired you, but as his wife, you want me to go against his wishes. Are you trying to sow discord between us? Do you think I’m a fool? Do you think I’ll do whatever you say? Should I go against my husband for a stranger?”
Gu Zheng, who was outside the door, smiled. Mrs. Gu still had some tricks up her sleeve.
Director Feng’s expression darkened. “Mrs. Gu, I’ve been working in Gu Corporation for so many years. I was fired because I spoke up for Qiao Rou. If news of this gets out, the employees will definitely be disappointed!
“I’m begging you, Mrs. Gu. Please plead for me. I’m the director of the finance department. If I leave, who will do my job? This will be the company’s loss. President Gu might blame this on you.”
Qiao Xi couldn’t help but laugh. Was this a threat?
If she really listened to Director Feng and went to plead with Gu Zheng, she would be a fool!
Qiao Xi could not be bothered to continue arguing with this woman, so she stood up and left.
Seeing that she was ignoring her, Director Feng instantly flew into a rage out of humiliation and shouted, “Mrs. Gu! Are you sure you don’t care about this matter? Do you think it’s appropriate for you to fire a veteran of a company just because of a few words? Gu Corporation is so ignorant. Will the employees be willing to pledge loyalty to a company like this?
“If news of this gets out, your reputation will be affected as well. I advise you to consider it carefully!”
Qiao Xi slowly turned around, and her voice was icy-cold. “What are you doing? Are you angry from embarrassment?”
