Chapter 1035: Trampling Everyone Beneath His Feet
At the same time, in the Director’s office of the Wen Corporation, Wen Haowen briefly read the documents regarding the meeting passed to him by Secretary He. After making sure that there were no issues with them, he tidied them up.
Wen Haowen peered at the watch on his wrist. It was ten minutes from 10 A.M., which meant that the Directors meeting was going to commence in ten minutes. Usually, at this time, he would have already gone to the meeting room way earlier to prepare to receive the incoming shareholders, following closely behind them like a bastard, and be subjected to their beck and call.
An arrogant smile emerged on Wen Haowen’s handsome face.
He walked up slowly to the wine cellar of the office, retrieved a bottle of red wine, and removed the cork. The fragrant aroma of alcohol filled the air.
He retrieved a wine glass and, in an elegant and casual manner, slowly poured himself a glass of red wine.
The red wine was poured into the glass, giving off a sweet and rich melody. The aroma of alcohol hung in the air, seemingly instantly awakening the dull atmosphere of the office.
Wen Haowen raised the wine glass, walked up to the window, and gently swirled the wine in the glass. He looked down at the cars and people moving incessantly—they were as small as ants beneath his feet—and he suddenly felt a sense of great contentment.
The office door was pushed open and Secretary He walked in.
Upon seeing Secretary He, Wen Haowen broke into a smile. “How’s it going?”
Smiling, Secretary He passed a file to Wen Haowen. “It has been my honor. All the paperwork regarding the agreement of the transfer of shares has been done. From now on… this 5% belong to you.”
Wen Haowen received and looked at the file in his hands with an agitated expression. With trembling hands, he opened the file and the huge black words of “Agreement for Transfer of Shares” stared back at him. Without even reading the brief content of the agreement, he closed the file and couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
There was an unknown sparkle in Secretary He’s dazzling eye as he said, “Congratulations to CEO for becoming a legitimate big shareholder of the Wen Corporation. From now on, your status in the Wen Corporation will rise yet another level.”
Wen Haowen patted on Secretary He’s shoulder, smiled, and said, “Well said, well said. Secretary He, you’re indeed capable—I was right about you.”
Although he had persuaded Old Mrs. Wen to transfer the shares to him, it wasn’t easy at all to totally hide it from the Old Man. As it could only proceed under the table, each of the related paperwork would take more time to complete. He had thought that it would be extremely difficult to obtain this agreement for the transfer of shares before the Directors meeting. Just then, Secretary He volunteered himself to the task, saying that he had a way to settle it. Naturally, he had handed this matter over to him.
Unexpectedly, Secretary He indeed didn’t disappoint him.
Secretary He started smiling. “As your secretary, it’s part of my job to share your woes.”
Wen Haowen walked up to the wine cellar with large strides, poured another glass of red wine, and passed it to Secretary He. “Here, here, here—Secretary He, have a drink with me.”
Naturally, Secretary He wouldn’t reject. The clanging of the wine glasses produced a crisp sound that reverberated in the office momentarily. Wen Haowen said, “With this 5% shares, I’ll have deciding power in the Directors meeting and will be able to ruthlessly trample those arrogant directors and shareholders beneath my feet.”
He had enough of tolerating those shareholders over the years.
Secretary He’s eyes darted as he said, “Most importantly, with your position and deciding power in the company, the entertainment city project will be able to materialize smoothly. Come that time, you’ll truly be deserving of all the credit, and the entire Wen Corporation will be yours.”
They had planned so much—shares, setting up of a new department—just to completely manipulate the Wen Corporation to construct the entertainment city. At this point, it was necessary to let Wen Haowen know clearly that only upon the completion of the entertainment city project would he truly obtain the Wen Corporation.
Wen Haowen smiled and said, “Hahahaha, you’re right.”
Secretary He smiled and said nothing.
Wen Haowen patted his shoulder and said, “Secretary He, you’ve been with me for almost three years!”
Secretary He had been recommended to him by Ning Shuqian more than two years ago when the Old Man had been so infuriated with him that he was hospitalized. After an interview, he felt that this Secretary He was talented and kept him by his side. Indeed, this Secretary He had great capabilities. Within the short span of two years, he had become his most able assistant who was involved in all big and small matters regarding him. It seemed like as long as he was with him, all matters would be resolved regardless of their scale.
Secretary He said, smiling, “Yes, CEO.”
Wen Haowen said, “At the Directors meeting later, I’ll formally suggest to form a new department and hire new staff to specifically be responsible for the entire entertainment city project. You’re the person I trust the most around here, so I intend to put you in charge of the entire entertainment city project. What do you think?”
After much thinking, Secretary He was the best person for the job. To have him manage the entire entertainment city project would put his mind at ease.
Secretary He was overjoyed as he looked at Wen Haowen and said enthusiastically, “CEO, don’t worry. I’ll definitely not disappoint you and do my best to support you to complete the construction of the entertainment city.”
This hit the nail on the head. Many of their plans required the involvement of the manager of the entertainment city project to materialize. He had just been worrying about how to persuade Wen Haowen to let him into the management of the entertainment city project over the past few days. Unexpectedly, Wen Haowen actually suggested it on his own.
Wen Haowen nodded in satisfaction. “Secretary He, work hard under me and I’ll treat you well.”
A true leader motivated with carrots and sticks. Wen Haowen was very happy with how he dealt with this matter.
Just then, Secretary He said, “CEO, I got news that Missy will participate in the Directors meeting today in the capacity of a shareholder of the Wen Corporation. She’s currently already at the Wen Corporation building.”
He had not interacted with this Miss Wen much and got most of his understanding about her from Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian. Nevertheless, his guard was raised towards this girl.
Wen Haowen couldn’t hide his shocked expression. “What, she’s participating in the Directors meeting? She’s merely a small, immature wretch—how could she know about the business world? Why is she stirring things up?”
Wen Xinya and the Old Man were on the same side. The Old Man was already unhappy with him. Now that Wen Xinya came over to participate in the Directors meeting, he had a bad feeling about it—could she be entrusted by the Old Man?
Seeing that he was starting to get ill-tempered, Secretary He hurriedly consoled him. “CEO, don’t get worked up first. I’ve already contacted the reporters to block her off at the Wen Corporation building—I don’t think she’ll be able to get away so easily.”
Only then did Wen Haowen’s expression calm down as he looked at Secretary Cao with an even more satisfied gaze.
