Chapter 822: Stepping All over Him and Stealing the Limelight
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Yang Ziyu used her pregnancy as an excuse to cause a stir in the Wen Corporation office tower. Wen Xinya did not plan to draw attention away from the matter or keep it under wraps. Hence, she allowed nature to take its course.
However, the Wen Corporation’s product launch proceeded smoothly and came to a perfect closure despite the various obstacles and interruptions.
Meanwhile, the CEO of the Wen Corporation, Wen Haowen, seemed to be out of sorts because of the Yang Ziyu incident which occurred out of the blue, though the product launch that he was in charge of had gone smoothly.
While handling the matter, Wen Xinya had completely exhibited the qualities that the successor of the Wen Corporation should have. She was scheming, smart, sharp-witted and shrewd. She managed to calm Yang Ziyu down before ruining her every glimmer of hope. Lastly, she exposed Yang Ziyu for pretending to be pregnant, leaving her with no chance for a rebuttal at all. She managed to subdue Yang Ziyu easily.
Everyone was surprised by the shrewd way that she had handled the situation.
It was also because… the product launch proceeded smoothly all thanks to Wen Xinya’s contribution to the advertising and publicity matters. Hence, everyone saw her as a deciding factor.
Wen Haowen and Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief after sending the guests off.
Wen Haowen stared at her, seemingly trying to size her up, though he had a tender expression on his face. “Xinya, you’ve been busy for the entire day. You must be tired!”
Wen Xinya managed to steal the limelight and showed her prowess in front of the media. The guests also thought highly of her and gave her plenty of compliments. She became the star and the focus of the event. During the launch, he heard several praises about Wen Xinya.
As the CEO of the Wen Corporation, he took charge of the product launch and put in plenty of effort into planning it. Yet, no one gave him credit for his work and he could not tolerate it at all. He was planning to make use of the product launch to rebuild his reputation. To his anger and dismay, Wen Xinya managed to take all the credit.
The thought of Wen Xinya getting all the credit for the work that he had done, it made him wish he could slap her and teach her a lesson.
Unsure of what Wen Haowen meant, Wen Xinya nodded and answered, “I’m a little tired, but fortunately, the Ai Shang product launch was rather successful.”
After a moment of hesitation, Wen Haowen asked, “Xinya, how did you know that Yang Ziyu was here to stir trouble? You even rushed over immediately.”
He had given it some careful thought and found that Secretary He had made a lot of sense. Wen Xinya rushed to the scene as soon as she heard about the ruckus and even managed to solve the matter in an appropriate manner. Not only did she show her face to the media, but she also received compliments from everyone, making her value to the Wen Corporation rise. Her reputation was also improved. How could there be such a coincidence?
Well, unless, Wen Xinya was the one who staged everything!
“Previously, I discovered that you had gone missing for a long time, so I asked Secretary Cao for your whereabouts, only to find out that Yang Ziyu was causing lots of trouble.” Wen Xinya was no fool and could tell what he was driving at, even though he looked kind and calm. She could not help but chuckle, thinking to herself,
Her answer was reasonable, and she even mentioned Secretary Cao, so as to make sure Wen Haowen didn’t find any loopholes. “Oh! Is that so? Did you really send some people to feed Yang Ziyu with emergency contraceptive medication?”
He was clearly in doubt!
Wen Xinya nodded and stared at Wen Haowen. “Father… speaking of which, I must remind you something. As the CEO of the Wen Corporation, you’ll definitely attract plenty of women who will resort to anything to bed you. You must be wary in the future. It’d be trivial if you get set up, but the results would be dire if you were to get those dubious and sordid women pregnant. Should that happen, the Wen Family’s reputation is definitely going to be ruined.”
Wen Haowen turned pale. She was indirectly trying to provoke him under the pretext of giving him some advice. She was implying that he was too silly to have not taken any contraceptive measures and almost ended up getting Yang Ziyu pregnant.
Thrilled to see the look of displeasure on Wen Haowen’s face, Wen Xinya said, “Father… I know I’m in no place to tell you this, but… I couldn’t care about the rest when I handled the matter today. I just hope you understand where I’m coming from.”
Wen Haowen was instantly speechless. Although he refused to admit it, Wen Xinya was actually telling the truth, and he really ought to kick the habit of fooling around with women.
1At this moment, Secretary Cao walked towards them and said, “Missy, Old Mr. Wen would like you to go over.”
Wen Xinya was well aware that Old Mr. Wen was definitely asking to see her because of the Yang Ziyu incident.
Wen Haowen’s eyes lit up and said, “Xinya, I’ll go with you to see your Grandpa! After all, the Yang Ziyu incident occurred because of me, and I was also the one who almost affected the product launch of Ai Shang Cosmetics, and caused the Wen Family to be embarrassed. I have to give your Grandpa an explanation.”
He was very worried that Wen Xinya would tell on him to Old Mr. Wen and make Old Mr. Wen detest him even more.
“Fine by me!” Wen Haowen had a complicated mind, though anyone who knew him would be well aware of how scheming he was.
Secretary Cao said calmly, “Mr. Wen, if you’d like to see Old Mr. Wen, why don’t I inform him first?”
He was tactfully trying to say that Old Mr. Wen only wanted to see Wen Xinya.
Wen Haowen almost caused the Wen Family to be disgraced and the Wen Corporation to incur a major loss. As soon as Wen Xinya appeared, he cowardly hid behind her and allowed her to resolve the issue. Now that things had been settled… he was trying to take the chance to prove himself to Old Mr. Wen.
Wen Haowen turned pale and glared at Secretary Cao coldly. “In that case, I’ll look for him later.”
Old Mr. Wen had become more trusting towards Wen Xinya and he even announced that he would be establishing a charity organization in her name.
Secretary Cao nodded and said, “I’ll relay your message to Old Mr. Wen.”
Wen Haowen looked at Wen Xinya and said, “Xinya, I didn’t expect that Yang Ziyu would show up at the product launch and wreak havoc. It was negligence on my part too. When your Grandpa asks about it, you must explain it to him properly.”
He was indirectly telling her not to spout any nonsense to Old Mr. Wen.
Wen Haowen still thought the worst of everyone!
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “Don’t worry, Father. I’ll definitely tell Grandpa the truth about everything that happened.”
Despite feeling displeased, it would be inappropriate for Wen Haowen to say anything since Secretary Cao was there.
