At this moment, Ning Shuqian was lying on the bed and switching the channels on the television with the remote control when her mobile phone rang all of a sudden. She knew who it was right away because of the special ringtone.
She hurriedly answered the call. “Hello! What’s the matter with you? Why didn’t you contact me in such a long time? You didn’t answer all my calls, either. Do you even still want to cooperate with me?”
Ning Shuqian was incredibly frustrated and peeved. Although she had been working with him for such a long time, Wen Xinya was still alive and well. In fact, Old Mr. Wen had even become more and more fond of her. She had noticed everything and was just afraid that Old Mr. Wen would lose trust in Wen Haowen. By the time Wen Xinya took over the Wen Corporation, it’d be harder to deal with her.
She suddenly lost faith in the cooperation.
The man on the other end of the line was not at all displeased with her harsh tone. The robotic voice answered coldly, “I called because I have some good news for you today.”
Ning Shuqian hurriedly asked, “What’s the good news? Don’t tell me, you’ve come up with a way to deal with Wen Xinya?”
Upon hearing his words, Ning Shuqian’s mood was instantly lifted and she suddenly had more hope in the mysterious man’s abilities. She knew that he was rather capable.
“I just received some news about Old Mr. Wen passing out because he had had a heated argument with Wen Haowen. Isn’t that good news?”
Ning Shuqian’s eyes widened in shock and she asked agitatedly, “You’re not lying to me, are you? Even I don’t know about that. How did you find out?”
Although she was full of questions, the smile on her face broadened; she had believed his words. However, she had to suppress her astonishment.
“This is absolutely true. I have a snitch in the Wen Family. I’ll find out everything that happens as soon as it does,” he said smugly in an eerie voice.
The smile on Ning Shuqian’s stiffened.
She couldn’t help but feel a sudden chill down her spine. She had also begun fearing him more and more. Her hands, too, began to tremble while she gripped her mobile phone.
However, she managed to calm herself down by reminding herself that she had already moved out of the Wen Family mansion.
“What’s wrong? Are you upset to hear the news?” he asked sinisterly, despite already knowing the answer.
“I’m happy. Of course I’m happy. That old fogy is finally ill. Why wouldn’t I be happy?” Ning Shuqian answered. She was thrilled to hear that Old Mr. Wen was ill, for she resented him for ill-treating her and making life difficult for her throughout the fifteen years that she had been married to Wen Haowen.
Seemingly having guessed something, Ning Shuqian immediately asked, “How’s Wen Zhihang’s condition?”
“I don’t know yet, but my snitch told me that his condition doesn’t seem to be very optimistic,” the caller answered in a monotonous voice.
“If only he’d just kick the bucket right now. That way, Wen Xinya would be completely destroyed,” said Ning Shuqian. She still could not do anything to Wen Xinya, who had harmed her again and again.
“Wen Zhihang has always been healthy. It’d be impossible for him to die of an illness. However, it’s alright. We’ll have a good chance to act so long as he’s ill beyond the point of running the corporation.”
“Don’t you have a snitch in the Wen Family?” asked Ning Shuqian, who felt extremely indignant.
“No, Wen Zhihang is a tough one to deal with. Besides, those shareholders of the corporation are not to be trifled with, either. They’ve been working for the Wen Corporation for fifteen years but are not satisfied with the corporation. It’s impossible for Wen Haowen to subdue the board of directors. Once Wen Zhihang dies, the Wen Corporation might very well crumble.”
Having lived with Wen Haowen for fifteen years, Ning Shuqian understood the shareholders of the corporation very well. Hence, she believed his words. She decided to heed his advice and rid her mind of all other distractions. She constantly reminded herself that she was after the Wen Corporation’s money and that the Wen Corporation would be destroyed if Wen Zhihang died. She couldn’t let that happen.
After giving it some thought, Ning Shuqian asked, “What do we do now, then?”
“Wen Zhihang has already stepped down and handed the corporation over to Wen Haowen on the surface. However, he still holds the actual power and authority. Wen Zhihang is intelligent and crafty. We mustn’t act rashly, so we’ll have to think of a way to plant our people in the corporation and build our power.”
Upon hearing his words, Ning Shuqian beamed with joy and agreed. “Alright, leave Wen Haowen to me to handle. I’ll be very careful. He’ll definitely agree.”
The caller was extremely pleased with Ning Shuqian’s answer and he sounded much less terrifying. “As for your stepdaughter, why don’t we go all out and…”
Ning Shuqian held her breath and tightened her grip on her mobile phone while placing it beside her ear. Upon hearing the noises of his knife, she said excitedly, “Perhaps that old man Wen Zhihang might just kick the bucket out of anger.”
Ning Shuqian couldn’t help but feel worried. “Wen Zhihang may be ill and unable to take care of Wen Xinya, but how about Old Mr. Mo? He’s far more terrifying than Wen Zhihang!”
“You forgot about Shen Mengting. She’s the best candidate for the scapegoat. I know she has injured you. That’s why I want to stand up for you.”
Wen Xinya grimaced and said menacingly, “Wen Xinya that little bitch. All she does is go against me. I must make sure she dies a horrible death and regret her existence.”
She was incredibly thrilled and excited. Wen Xinya was already dead to her.
Her greed grew even bigger at the thought of the Wen Family’s wealth landing in her hands one day.
