Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 841
Chapter 841: The Tang Family’s Secret
The next morning.
Lu Corporation announced to the public that they would close the presales channel because there were some problems with the perfumes. They did not meet the standards, so they decided to destroy all the perfumes.
Hence, many people felt that Lu Corporation was a conscientious company. They would rather destroy all the perfumes than let the consumers take any risks. However, there were still some people who understood the situation. Previously, there was news that Lu Corporation was sued, and no clear explanation was given. The removal of the perfumes this time must be related to the lawsuit.
Today happened to be New Year’s Eve. Lu Corporation was in a panic and only hoped that Gu Zheng would not go back on his word. Otherwise, how could they be in the mood to celebrate the new year?
On this day, Old Master Tang came to Li City from the capital to visit his relatives who were living in Li City. He had already heard about the Lu family in the capital. Old Master Tang said thoughtfully, “President Gu is brave and resourceful. He’s an outstanding figure among the younger generation. If you have time, invite him to our house as a guest.”
Madam Tang lowered her head, not knowing how to tell the old master about the grudge between Qiao Xi and Tang Ruge.
Old Master Tang’s son, Tang Dawei, had already told him about the oil painting, but he only smiled indifferently. “Ruge is young, and she happened to offend Mrs. Gu. She just needs to apologize. I want to look for President Gu to discuss business. He won’t reject me because of a personal grudge.”
He glanced meaningfully at Tang Dawei. “All these years, I had to help you arrange many things before you could sit in the position of heir. Don’t disappoint me.”
The moment that was said, Tang Dawei’s family’s expressions changed as they lowered their heads.
Madam Tang replied in a low voice, “Dad, I heard that Eldest Brother and Sister-in-law’s children seem to have made a name for themselves outside. They’re targeting the Tang family now! I’m not afraid of them taking revenge on me, but I’m afraid it’ll be detrimental to the Tang family. If they…”
Old Master Tang’s expression darkened. “I understand. Don’t worry, I’ll handle this matter. They won’t affect the Tang family’s interests.”
Madam Tang and Tang Dawei heaved a sigh of relief.
The next morning, Gu Zheng hurriedly entered the study to handle urgent documents. Qiao Xi was woken up, so she turned on her computer and logged into Black Tide’s account. Then, she sent Mu Ming a message.
Mu Ming replied: [You’re welcome.]
If it were not for Mu Ming, Lu Yan would not have confirmed the news of Han Ye’s death. This time, Mu Ming and his sister had done her a great favor. In return, Qiao Xi would also help them.
[Did Tang Ruge ask you to tamper with the information of the account named ‘Fu Sheng’? You should know that the original owner of this account is me, right?]
Mu Ming did not hide anything. [Yes.]
Qiao Xi: [Do you have a grudge against Tang Ruge?]
Although it was a question, Qiao Xi was already very sure that Mu Ming and Mu Ling knew that she was Fu Sheng. They could have rejected the job. However, not only did they accept Tang Ruge’s money, but they also gave her some leeway. When the matter was exposed, Tang Ruge would definitely lose all her dignity.
Mu Ming did not reply immediately. Qiao Xi continued: [Actually, I’ve already investigated your relationship with the Tang family. You helped me, so I should tell you a secret. 16 years ago, someone hired Ling Pavilion to kill your parents. I found out that the employer was a man, but I can’t find any other information. After all, Ling Pavilion has always been paid to do things. They don’t ask about the employer’s identity.]
16 years ago?
His parents died in a car accident nine years ago. After that, he and his sister were chased out by the Tang family. They started Dark Net Organization and got to know Mo Yuan and Black Tide.
Now, Black Tide actually told him that someone had hired assassins to kill his parents 16 years ago.
Hence, the murder was planned for seven years. In the end, that person got the outcome they wanted.
After Qiao Xi told Mu Ming the details, she lay on the sofa and looked at the snow outside the window.
The heating system in Longwan Residential was good, so she did not feel cold even when wearing a thin dress. It was like a different world from the snow outside.
Qiao Xi narrowed her eyes comfortably like an elegant cat. Just as she was about to fall asleep, the sudden ringing of her phone woke her up.
She looked in the direction of the voice. It was not her phone but Gu Zheng’s. But who would call Gu Zheng at this time?
Usually, Song Shijing and Song Shiyu would pick up business calls. After confirming that there were no problems, they would report it to Gu Zheng. Moreover, Gu Zheng had very few relatives and friends, so very few people called his private number.
Qiao Xi had a feeling that the caller was extraordinary.
