Chapter 1028: Borrowing Old Mrs. Wen’s Shares
After hearing Ning Shuqian’s words, Wen Haowen’s face grew increasingly sullen. In this world, even the most average man would have ambitions of his own. Despite having been the CEO of the Wen Corporation for more than a decade, Wen Haowen still did not make any outstanding achievements. Hence, Old Mr. Wen had always looked down on him and he also had to face the criticism of the shareholders, making him feel extremely aggrieved.
The exposure of his adulterous affair had also caused his status in the Wen Corporation to become unstable. The entertainment city was the most important thing to Wen Haowen now, and he stubbornly felt that it was his chance to make a comeback. As long as the project was successful and he helped the Wen Corporation make a massive amount of money, even Old Mr. Wen would look up to him and he would have a stable position in the company. By then, he might just replace Wen Xinya as the successor of the Wen Corporation.
Hence, Ning Shuqian’s words made a lot of sense to him.
Finding that the time was right, Ning Shuqian said after a moment of silence, “Haowen, you hold 15% of the Wen Corporation’s shares. That’s only 5% more than Wen Xinya and Mr. Qian. 5% may be a lot during normal circumstances, but now that we’re facing such a major decision, 5% is not enough. You still have to answer to the shareholders.”
Her words had again hit the nail on its head. “That bunch of old fogies love acting like they’re knowledgeable and deserve respect just because they’re old.”
Ning Shuqian said, “Haowen, you should think of a solution to acquire more of the Wen Corporation’s shares. You can only command more authority in the Wen Corporation once you hold more shares.”
That was the best solution that she could come up with. So long as she could manipulate Wen Haowen into acquiring more of the Wen Corporation’s shares so that he could have a say in the company, she would be able to make him obey her and do whatever she wanted him to. Only then could the entertainment city project be implemented successfully.
Wen Haowen said with a frown, “The Wen Family owns 60% of the Wen Corporation’s shares altogether, while Mr. Qian owns 10%. Less than 10% of the remaining 30% are available for purchase on the stock market. It’d be difficult to acquire them. I’ve tried to acquire them too, but the Wen Corporation has a promising future and no one is willing to let go of their shares. In order to acquire more shares, I’ll need a large sum of money.”
Besides, he did not have that much funds to acquire the shares.
After some thought, an idea popped up in Ning Shuqian’s head and she said, “I remember Mother still holds 5% of the Wen Corporation’s shares. If you can get your hands on that 5%, you’ll hold 20% of the Wen Corporation’s shares.”
Wen Haowen could not help but feel a little tempted, though he still had other concerns. “But… those shares were a gift from the old man. How can I ask her for it?”
Although Wen Haowen was a heartless person, he genuinely loved his mother.
Having understood Wen Haowen’s concerns, Ning Shuqian said, “Haowen, this 20% will give you the power and authority to have a say in the Wen Corporation. You no longer have to worry about the opinions of the shareholders, either. In fact… you can also control Wen Xinya and you don’t have to be afraid of her even if she’s the successor of Wen Corporation. Besides, you can also go against the old man and he’ll have to be cautious regardless of how much he detests you. No one can pose a threat to your position in the Wen Corporation.”
She knew that everyone had their own weakness and hence, she was not afraid that she wouldn’t be able to convince Wen Haowen. After all, she had been married to him for more than a decade and knew him too well. Wen Haowen’s greed would compel him into doing anything so long as she informed him of the pros and cons.
Just like she had expected, Wen Haowen was extremely tempted, though he was a little hesitant.
Ning Shuqian smile and said, “Haowen, I’m not asking you to get Mother to really give you her shares. I’m just trying to ask you to borrow it from her. Once the entertainment city is built and your position as CEO is secured, we can just return the shares to her. Mother has always loved you and she’s on your side too. I’m sure she’ll agree to lend her shares.”
Ning Shuqian stared at Wen Haowen in despise. Wen Haowen may be selfish, but he genuinely cared about his mother. She was certain that he would attain those shares so long as he had a reasonable excuse.
Just like she had expected, Wen Corporation smiled and said, “You’re right. My position in the Wen Corporation now is unstable and I will need those shares to stabilize my position. I shall borrow Mother’s shares for now. The most important thing now is the entertainment city.”
Ning Shuqian burst into laughter and said, “After borrowing Mother’s shares, you must be filial towards her.”
Wen Haowen smiled and pinched Ning Shuqian’s waist that was soft and tender to the touch. She was nowhere inferior to the young and beautiful hostesses at Jiayuan Club. “Baby, you truly understand me. You’ve come up with such a good solution for me. Once the project is completed, you’ll get all the credit.”
Ning Shuqian did have some constructive ideas.
Ning Shuqian pushed him and said, “You’ve got a glib tongue. In another two years, I’ll be old and no longer your baby. You’ll probably call someone else your precious baby.”
Wen Haowen giggled and said, “Those women out there can’t compare to you at all. Not only are you intelligent, but you’re also good at pleasing men in bed too. I don’t even have enough time to serve you, let alone bed other women.”
He was still thinking about how to get his hands on some viagra.
Ning Shuqian laughed and exclaimed, “Sweet talker!”
That granny was indeed right about enticing Wen Haowen and making him obsessed by letting him want what he couldn’t have. She ought to make him feel like he couldn’t satisfy her and suffer a bruise on his ego. Only then would he do everything he could to satisfy her and stay devoted to her.
Wen Haowen continued to flirt with her for a while.
Ning Shuqian nudged him and said, “It’s time to leave. It’s already one in the morning. Be wary, your old man might just teach you a lesson.”
After climaxing thrice, Wen Haowen was feeling rather weak. He laid on the bed feebly, not wanting to move an inch at all. He initially wanted to leave. However, after hearing her relentless words, he felt that he ought to satisfy her sexual needs before leaving. Hence, he said, “Nah, I’ll spend the night here.”
