Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 821
Chapter 821: It’s Better To Make Friends
“Other than the Lu family, we have many other companies we can work with. The others won’t even hesitate to give us more benefits to get the opportunity to work with us. We can work with anyone, but I’m the only one who can work with the Lu family. You have to know that it was your Lu family who begged me to work with you!”
Gu Zheng’s words caused the expressions of everyone in Lu Corporation to change. It was not easy for them to get this chance with Gu Corporation. This collaboration could bring huge benefits to Lu Corporation. If the collaboration was terminated because of a few words from Lu Xiang, then…
Everyone’s unhappy gazes landed on Lu Xiang. She lowered her head with a livid expression, but she was unwilling to apologize. She did not want to apologize to Lu Qingyun’s son!
Lu Qingyun was already dead. Why should she still live under Lu Qingyun’s shadow and endure the torture of that b*tch’s son?
Lu Xiang roared indignantly, “I’m your biological aunt. You’re actually threatening me for a woman who doesn’t know the rules?”
“It seems that you threatened me first.” Gu Zheng’s tone was filled with mockery. He had given Lu Xiang too much respect, which was why she had been arrogant for so many years. Now, she actually bullied Mrs. Gu!
Gu Zheng’s expression darkened. He did not care about the expressions of the people from Lu Corporation at all. He directly held Qiao Xi’s hand and said softly, “Let’s go.”
Qiao Xi nodded. The two of them were just about to turn around and leave when Lu Xiang finally couldn’t help but roar, “Gu Zheng! The penalty for breach of contract isn’t a small sum. If news of you breaking the contract for Qiao Xi gets out, what will others think of Qiao Xi? They’ll say she’s a femme fatale. At that time, the entire Gu Corporation will blame her!”
Gu Zheng’s expression was indifferent. “Second Miss Lu, you think too much.”
The sum Gu Corporation had to pay for this breach of contract was just a drop in the ocean for Gu Zheng. He would not take it from the company’s accounts. Since it was his private matter, he would settle it in private. It would not affect others much. Who would stand up and criticize Mrs. Gu?
Seeing that Gu Zheng had made up his mind, the higher-ups of Lu Corporation finally let go of their dignity. They hurriedly ran in front of Gu Zheng and advised, “President Gu! Please think about it again. Even if you have money, you can’t fool around like this!”
Gu Zheng stopped in his tracks and slowly turned around. His eyes were filled with coldness as he said in a sharp voice, “I can spend my own money however I want. You don’t have to worry.”
Everyone’s expressions were extremely ugly. Before they could say anything, Gu Zheng sneered. “Everyone should know very well that after Lu Corporation and Gu Corporation cut off all ties, no one in Li City will work with Lu Corporation anymore.”
“Is Lu Corporation worthy of fighting me?”
Everyone from the Lu family was livid. Lu Xiang bit her lip so hard that it almost tore.
“As for whether the higher-ups of Gu Corporation will criticize Mrs. Gu or not, you’re thinking too much. Without Lu Corporation, there are still other companies. With Mrs. Gu’s reputation, it’s not difficult for us to find a company to collaborate with. What do you think?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Old Master Lu widened his eyes. Previously, he was still calm because he thought that Gu Zheng would not easily terminate the collaboration. After all, Gu Corporation was not as experienced as Lu Corporation in terms of fashion design.
However, Qiao Xi was Gu Shan. With her in Gu Corporation, it was equivalent to accumulating huge connections for Gu Corporation. Many companies would swarm over to collaborate with Gu Corporation.
Lu Xiang forced herself to remain calm and gritted her teeth. “Gu Zheng, stop talking big. Can Qiao Xi alone pull in a collaboration? Get Qiao Xi to apologize to me immediately and I won’t bicker with you. Let’s forget about this matter!”
She thought that she had already made a concession and Gu Zheng was done causing trouble. He could not have too stiff a relationship with the Lu family. After all, they were all his elders.
Before Gu Zheng could say anything, Song Shijing snorted. “Impossible.”
“What else do you want?” Lu Xiang was furious.
The higher-ups of Lu Corporation also came forward to persuade Gu Zheng. “President Gu, Mrs. Gu, this is just a small matter. Why implicate the collaboration? It’s better to make friends than enemies. This will be beneficial to both of us.”
“Isn’t it too late to persuade us to reconcile?” Song Shiyu stood in front of everyone and sneered.
Gu Zheng did not like to bring bodyguards with him when he went out, so there were only four of them. At this moment, there were more than 50 people from the Lu family in the banquet hall. Even with such a huge difference in numbers, everyone was suppressed by Gu Zheng’s aura and could not say anything.
