Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 835
Lu Corporation’s annual meeting had only started for half an hour, but Lu Yan had already lowered his head and was being questioned by all the higher-ups of Lu Corporation. Meanwhile, Gu Zheng was sitting on the sofa and calmly tasting red wine. His expression did not change at all.
When Lu Xiang heard that she had to compensate Gu Zheng 1.8 billion yuan, she was instantly angry.
Why? That was 1.8 billion, not 180,000! Moreover, the Lu family was already in a difficult situation. How could Gu Zheng have the cheek to take this sum of money?
This scumbag deserved to die! If she had known earlier, she would have killed him when he was young. Then, there would not be so much trouble now.
Lu Xiang could not suppress the anger in her heart and cursed, “Gu Zheng! You ingrate! Do you have the cheek to ask for this money? It’s 1.8 billion!”
As soon as she finished speaking, Old Master Lu’s blood surged. He roared, “Shut up!”
The higher-ups of Lu Corporation also looked at Lu Xiang in disdain. This woman was really too stupid!
The atmosphere in the banquet hall was extremely awkward. After a moment of silence, the man on the sofa slowly looked up and revealed a calm smile. “Compensate me with 1.8 billion?”
Everyone held their breaths as their bodies trembled.
Gu Zheng said casually, “I could have accepted this suggestion, but…”
Everyone’s hearts almost stopped as they anxiously waited for Gu Zheng to speak. Only Qiao Xi was leisurely eating the cake.
“However, Second Miss Lu seems to be very unwilling. If I accept this money, won’t I be an ingrate?”
Lu Xiang gasped, and her expression changed.
Gu Zheng chuckled. “In any case, I don’t lack this 1.8 billion. There’s no need for me to ruin my reputation for such a small amount of money. Xi Xi, don’t you think so?”
Qiao Xi nodded like a chick pecking on rice. “Very right! Ah Zheng, I think we should sue Lu Corporation! It seems that Second Miss Lu doesn’t care about Young Master Lu at all! She would rather let him go to jail than give us 1.8 billion!”
The higher-ups of Lu Corporation had gloomy expressions and hurriedly begged, “President Gu, President Gu…”
It was not easy for them to persuade President Gu to accept the money and let the matter rest. Just because Lu Xiang’s words had angered President Gu, he became unwilling?
If Lu Corporation was sued, not only would they have to compensate, but all their perfumes would also be taken off the shelves and destroyed. They would not even be able to recover their capital. Moreover, Lu Yan would still go to jail. Most importantly, if Lu Corporation was sued, the company’s reputation would be greatly affected. From now on, there was a high chance that customers would not buy Lu Corporation’s products anymore. This would be a devastating blow.
Originally, they only needed to fork out 1.8 billion yuan to solve the problem. Although everyone was unwilling, this was the only solution. Now that Lu Xiang had caused a scene, the matter had become even more serious.
Old Master Lu, who usually doted on his daughter, could not help but roar, “Lu Xiang! Are you crazy?!”
Old Madam Lu said unhappily, “Why are you shouting at Xiang’er? She’s doing this for the company, but you’re actually biased toward Lu Qingyun—”
Hearing this, Old Master Lu was so angry that his beard trembled. He immediately interrupted, “Shut up!”
“Old Madam Lu, are you trying to say that he’s biased toward Lu Qingyun’s son?” Qiao Xi said with a smile, “You mean to say that you don’t like Eldest Miss Lu, right? So why are you so good to Lu Yan? When the Lu family adopted Lu Yan, they announced to the public that they had found Eldest Miss Lu’s biological son. Could it be that the Lu family already knew that Lu Yan wasn’t Eldest Miss Lu’s child?”
The entire place was silent.
Old Master Lu was almost angered to the point of vomiting blood. “Qiao Xi, you…”
The higher-ups of Lu Corporation all lowered their heads and remained silent. The atmosphere was terrifyingly oppressive.
At this moment, Gu Zheng slowly stood up. His expression was indifferent, and his voice was cold and distant.
“I’m sorry, but I’ve already lost my patience. It’s time for this farce to end. Xi Xi, let’s go.”
The moment that was said, everyone in the Lu family gasped. If Gu Zheng left just like this, it would be equivalent to giving Lu Corporation a death notice.
From the moment he stepped out of the banquet hall, the news of Han Ye’s lawsuit would spread widely. Not only would the Lu family have to compensate, but their reputation would also be ruined. Moreover, Lu Yan would go to jail.
Qiao Xi held Gu Zheng’s arm and smiled lightly. “Originally, Lu Corporation only needed to compensate 1.8 billion yuan and everything would’ve been fine. However, Second Miss Lu was unwilling to compensate, which caused the situation to worsen. Ah Zheng, who do you think Second Miss Lu got her IQ from?”
“Maybe it’s because our family has too much money and thinks that losing 1.8 billion is nothing to fret over. She’ll only be satisfied when the Lu family loses everything.”
