Chapter 1036: What Is the Conspiracy Behind the Entertainment City?
Wen Haowen was in the midst of feeling smug about the 5% of the Wen Corporation’s shares that he had just received, so much that he didn’t even take Wen Xinya seriously despite the fact that she was one of the shareholders.
However, Ning Shuqian flew into a rage.
When Wen Xinya showed up at the Wen Corporation office tower, Ning Shuqian had already been informed that Wen Xinya would be joining the board meeting as a shareholder. Due to the fact that she had been in several conflicts with Wen Xinya beforehand, she had her guard up against Wen Xinya. An ominous feeling overwhelmed her.
Although Wen Xinya had taken part in some of the Wen Corporation’s operations, she was still not part of the internal management committee. In that case, why did she join the meeting?
Ning Shuqian could not see through her at all.
She definitely wouldn’t believe that Wen Xinya would watch Wen Haowen execute the entertainment city project smoothly without making any interventions. Could Wen Xinya be taking the chance to stop the project from proceeding?
Ning Shuqian could not decide.
After giving it some thought, Ning Shuqian called that mysterious person.
“What’s the matter?” asked a robotic voice which sounded monotonous and unsettling.
Ning Shuqian asked fearfully, “Do you know that Wen Xinya is going to join the Wen Corporation’s board meeting today as one of the shareholders?”
Too much had happened lately and Ning Shuqian was no longer as fierce as she used to be when she spoke to that person. The only thing she could do was to abide by his instructions in order to please him.
“Yes, I received the information just now,” the man answered monotonously.
Feeling a little jittery, Ning Shuqian said, “Do you know Wen Xinya’s motive for joining the board meeting all of a sudden? That Wen Xinya is very vicious. I’m worried that she will take the chance to ruin the entertainment city project.”
Ning Shuqian could see everything clearly. She managed to win Wen Haowen’s heart and manipulate Wen Haowen again, partly because she had become more youthful-looking and beautiful, and could serve him well in bed. Another reason was also that in Wen Haowen’s eyes, she was the person who knew the most about the entertainment city. She also had connections to Madam Zhang, whom he had to depend on in order for the entertainment city project to be completed successfully.
The fact that Madam Zhang was impressed by her made Wen Haowen see her in a different light.
Hence, she had to grasp the opportunity and help Wen Haowen execute the project successfully. Only then could she truly keep him devoted.
Wen Xinya’s sudden decision to join the shareholders’ meeting made her feel extremely uneasy.
The man did not answer.
Feeling ill at ease, Ning Shuqian said, “I have a feeling that the matter about Wen Xinya joining the board meeting is not as simple as it seems. Wen Xinya is very conniving and manipulative. As soon as she returned to the Wen Family, she managed to coax Old Mr. Wen and convince him to give her 10% of the Wen Corporation’s shares within three years. She’s on Old Mr. Wen’s side and I’m worried that he has something to do with her decision.”
Wen Xinya would not have made it this far if it weren’t for the fact that Old Mr. Wen had been defending her and protecting her.
Not receiving an answer, Ning Shuqian continued carefully, “Wen Haowen may hold 20% of the Wen Corporation’s shares now, and those shares may be slightly significant, but they mean nothing compared to Old Mr. Wen. Wen Haowen has once said that Old Mr. Wen doesn’t approve of the entertainment city. I reckon he only approved because the shareholders had approved of it.”
If it was just Wen Xinya going against Wen Haowen, Ning Shuqian wouldn’t have been that bothered. Her actual fear was the person behind Wen Xinya, Old Mr. Wen. Although he had already retired, he was still as shrewd and domineering as before, so much that he was rather intimidating.
She had never once seen through Wen Xinya’s cold and glassy eyes.
“You do make sense, but there’s no need to get too nervous. That girl Wen Xinya may be very capable, but she still hasn’t joined the official management team of the Wen Corporation. She doesn’t have a foundation in the Wen Corporation and she won’t be able to make a difference. Old Mr. Wen may be shrewd, but he has already retired. Wen Haowen’s 20% of shares are rather significant.”
The man sounded rather dauntless.
Ning Shuqian heaved a sigh of relief and said, “We’ve instigated Wen Haowen to propose the development of an entertainment city and coerced him into getting the 5% of shares from Old Mrs. Wen. The new department has also been set up. Do you have other plans in mind?”
Otherwise, how could he have still remained dauntless even until now? He was not at all worried about Old Mr. Wen and Wen Xinya sabotaging the plans for the entertainment city.
The man laughed sinisterly in a shrilling and intimidating voice. “I didn’t expect that you’d become smarter after just a few months of training!”
He was rather pleased with Ning Shuqian, and he did not expect her to be able to manipulate Wen Haowen so soon. She was actually a very smart woman.
Seemingly having taken a pill of reassurance, Ning Shuqian asked, “What do you plan to do next?”
During this period of time, she had received training from the granny and found out more about the Wen Corporation because she had been forced to learn more about the business world.
“Hehe, you don’t have to care about that. You’ll find out when it’s time,” the man answered coldly.
Ning Shuqian dared not continue asking.
“The most important thing for you to do now is to manipulate Wen Haowen and push for the project to be completed as soon as possible,” the man said in a mellower voice.
Ning Shuqian could not help but feel uneasy. She asked carefully, “Could you tell me why you’re placing so much emphasis on this project? Is the entertainment city really that lucrative?”
Ning Shuqian could not understand his intentions and hence, decided to ask him about it.
He laughed peculiarly again.
However, Ning Shuqian could tell from his laughter that it was not sarcastic but derisive. She felt extremely flustered and she could acutely sense that the entertainment city project was not as simple as it seemed and that he definitely had a hidden agenda.
“Don’t ask about things that you’re not supposed to know. Just do what you’re supposed to do,” he ordered coldly and sternly, though he did not sound like he was threatening her.
Ning Shuqian shivered, not daring to utter a single word.
The beeping sounds of the ended call filled her ears and she snapped out of her trance before falling onto the bed, overwhelmed with fear, uneasiness, and anxiety. At last… she managed to get a grip on herself.
She did not have another way out. Since she had already made the decision, she had to stick to it.
