Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 834
“The evidence is conclusive, yet Young Master Lu is still unrepentant. Even if your Lu family hires the most powerful lawyer, you have no chance of winning. However, the Lu family is still a big family in Li City, after all. With your connections and Young Master Lu’s good performance, he’ll be released in a few years. Unfortunately, Young Master Lu will be someone who has been to jail then. I don’t know if he’ll still have a chance to be the heir.”
The Lu family’s faces turned livid.
“Gu Zheng!” Lu Yan gritted his teeth.
“What? Are you angry from embarrassment, Young Master Lu?” Qiao Xi’s face was filled with ridicule.
At this moment, Lu Yan wanted to cover Qiao Xi’s mouth. He even wondered why he had a good impression of this woman back then and even dealt with the Qiao family for Qiao Xi.
He originally thought that he could rely on his sincerity to move Qiao Xi and get her to leave Gu Zheng to be with him. As long as Qiao Xi was willing to divorce Gu Zheng, he could disregard the past and marry her. However, he never expected that all of this was just his wishful thinking. Qiao Xi had already been bewitched by Gu Zheng, and her mind was filled with thoughts of what was best for Gu Zheng. Why should he ask for trouble?!
Lu Yan had long known that Qiao Xi was not to be trifled with, but he did not expect her to have such a vicious tongue. Every word she said stabbed at his heart.
However, Mrs. Gu was not appeased. She continued to attack crazily. “Young Master Lu, have you looked in the mirror?! I want to vomit just looking at your hypocritical appearance!
“I really don’t understand why your Lu family is so confident when you’re so ordinary! You were the one who broke the law and even made Ah Zheng lower his head. What right do you have? Just because you’re shameless?
As soon as Qiao Xi finished speaking, Gu Yao chimed in, “Yes, yes! Since you made a mistake, you should either go to jail or pay the compensation. However, you don’t want to compensate or go to jail. You even said that my brother is unfilial. The Lu family is really good at distorting the truth!”
The higher-ups of Lu Corporation looked at Lu Yan with subtle expressions. At this moment, they began to wonder if the heir they were following really had the ability to lead them.
Previously, Lu Yan spent a lot of money to buy a plot of land to build a resort. Unexpectedly, not long after, it was discovered that there was a tomb underground, causing Lu Corporation to lose 10 billion yuan. Now, because of the packaging of the perfumes, Lu Corporation suffered a huge loss.
Could it be that Lu Yan was a spy sent by the enemy?
Ever since he took over Lu Corporation, not only had he not made any achievements, but he had also lost more than 10 billion yuan. Lu Corporation was already in a difficult situation. If this continued, how long would Lu Corporation survive?
Old Master Lu also noticed everyone’s gazes. At this moment, his face was ferocious, and his old eyes were filled with horror and anger. His body swayed as if he would faint the next second.
He suppressed the anger in his heart. He absolutely could not have a falling out with Gu Zheng in public. Although he could not let Gu Zheng be of use to him, he could not become enemies with Gu Zheng either.
Right now, he could only use his bloodline to force Gu Zheng to yield, so he had to endure it.
Old Master Lu shot a look at one of the higher-ups. The other party instantly understood and said while trembling, “President Gu, how about this? During the presales, Lu Corporation sold a total of 800,000 bottles of perfume. We promise to only sell these 800,000 bottles. The total amount is about 900 million. We’re willing to compensate you at twice the price. We just hope that you won’t pursue the matter with Lu Corporation.”
Old Master Lu lowered his eyes and clenched his fists.
Unexpectedly, after spending his entire life in the business world, he still ended up losing to his grandson.
The 900 million yuan was the total price after all the perfumes were sold. However, after deducting the publicity fees, research and development fees, and materials fees, the final net profit was only 200 million yuan.
However, they still had to compensate Gu Zheng with 1.8 billion yuan. The employees of Lu Corporation had been busy for two months. In the end, not only did they not earn a single cent, but they even lost 2.5 billion yuan.
Who could accept this outcome?
Old Master Lu could not just watch Lu Corporation go bankrupt. Not only did he have to pay Gu Zheng 1.8 billion, but he also had to ask him to accept the money and immediately withdraw the lawsuit so that he would not mention this matter again.
Old Master Lu had never been so embarrassed in his life. He knew that he had been schemed against by Gu Zheng, but he did not dare to go head-on with him. He could only willingly hand over 1.8 billion.
It was extremely humiliating…
Lu Yan’s expression was gloomy, and there was a strong smell of blood in his mouth. He even felt that he was about to faint. At this moment, he finally felt like he was being stepped on by Gu Zheng.
