Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 839
Hope reignited in everyone’s eyes. Now that Lu Xiang had already apologized, Gu Zheng should let them and the Lu family off.
The banquet hall was silent. Everyone’s breathing slowed down as they quietly waited for Gu Zheng to speak. He did not speak, so no one dared to rush him, afraid that they would anger this living King of Hell.
After a moment of silence, Gu Zheng seemed to be tired of seeing Lu Xiang’s and Lu Yan’s humiliated expressions. He slowly opened his eyes and smiled casually. “Alright.”
Song Shijing went forward to convey the president’s message. “The president will withdraw the lawsuit immediately, but at the same time, you have to take down all the perfumes and destroy the bottles. You have to compensate the president 1.8 billion yuan.”
Everyone from Lu Corporation was livid. Old Master Lu only felt a dull pain in his heart. It was so painful that he could not say anything. However, even though they were so unwilling, they still gritted their teeth and accepted this outcome.
Old Master Lu could only clench his fists and grit his teeth. “Someone will confirm the compensation with Gu Corporation later.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Gu Zheng held Qiao Xi’s hand and left mercilessly. This farce was finally over. The Lu family would have to pay an enormous price for this, but fortunately, the Lu family’s reputation was preserved.
As soon as Gu Zheng and Lu Xiang left, Old Master Lu’s vision darkened as he fell to the floor. His body trembled as he pointed at Lu Yan and Lu Xiang. He did not even have the strength to say anything.
He regretted it! If he had chosen Qingyun and Gu Zheng back then and if Lu Corporation had been handed to the mother and son, perhaps the Lu family would have long become the top corporation in the country. He would not have to worry about the company’s trivial matters at his age.
However, at this point, he had no way out. From the moment he decided to keep Ah Yan, everything was already destined.

Soon, Lu Corporation quickly suppressed the news and gave the customers a reasonable explanation. They also gave some coupons to the customers who paid for the presales deposit. Only then was the crisis resolved.
They had lost 1.8 billion yuan to Gu Zheng. Coupled with the manpower, resources, and publicity expenses they had invested during this period of time, they lost a total of 2.6 billion yuan.
Previously, Lu Corporation had already lost more than 10 billion yuan. In just a few months, they lost another 2.6 billion yuan. The huge company was already emptied out and could not withstand any more storms.
Qiao Xi chuckled and praised, “Gu Yao, you’ve become smarter! You even knew how to bring Madam Carter over.”
Gu Yao looked proud. “I was smart to begin with!”
Qiao Xi smiled and nodded. The gratification she felt was similar to that of a mother watching the child she raised grow up. This kid had grown up and gotten rid of the title of a good-for-nothing. Although he liked freedom and did not want to join the company, he was doing well now.
She could not help but sigh. “Actually, Huang Lilan isn’t completely useless. She did something right by bringing you to Gu Zheng.”
It was because of Gu Yao that Gu Zheng’s gray childhood had some color.
The first time they met, Qiao Xi only thought that Gu Yao was an ignorant and incompetent hedonistic son who kept protecting Yao Mengqing. Now that she thought about it, she could not blame him. It was because he was too naive and trusted others very easily. Moreover, as long as someone was good to him, he would give up everything to repay that person. Who would not like such a loyal little puppy?
Qiao Xi smiled as she looked at him. “It’s fortunate you’re around.”
Gu Yao was so touched that tears welled up in his eyes. His sister-in-law was too good. When he was chased out of the Gu family, everyone thought that he was a stray dog. Only Qiao Xi comforted him and gradually brought him out of the shadows.
Just as he was about to pull Qiao Xi over to express his gratitude, Gu Zheng also looked at him with a doting gaze. “It’s so good to have you around.”
Gu Yao was instantly smug.
Even Gu Zheng, this bastard, said that he was fortunate to have him around. He was really outstanding. He danced with excitement. “Yes! It’s your honor to be able to meet me!”
Qiao Xi had just taken a sip of the soup when she suddenly choked.

This kid couldn’t help but boast now! Gu Zheng had only praised him a few times, yet he was already so arrogant. How dare he speak to Gu Zheng like this?
10 minutes later, Gu Yao stood outside in the snowstorm like an abandoned dog.
He was wrong. He would never be arrogant again.
Coincidentally, it was snowing today, so his brother heartlessly threw him out.
Gu Yao was so aggrieved that he was about to cry. Looking at the heavy snow, he could only get into the car and think about where he should go next. However, he would be alone no matter where he went. It was too boring.
