Chapter 1038: Stopping Her from Joining the Board Meeting
The reporters were much tougher to deal with than before, and they bombarded her with various questions. Not only did they mention about her final examinations again, they even brought up the rumors of her and Wen Haowen being at odds against each other, which surfaced before her coming-of-age ceremony. The media simply did not let Wen Xinya off.
Secretary Cao and the chauffeur Tao had a hard time helping her shirk off the reporters.
As soon as she entered the Wen Corporation office tower, she attracted the attention of all the employees who scanned her from head to toe, after which they deduced that she was definitely there for serious business.
Every employee of the Wen Corporation was intelligent and competent. It was no secret that the board meeting would be held today, and they could also guess the reason for her visit after thinking about the 10% shares that she owned.
All of a sudden, she caused a sudden uproar within the Wen Corporation.
Within a short period of time, word about Wen Xinya joining the board meeting spread around the office.
Everyone broke into discussion.
The women could not control themselves from focusing on Wen Xinya’s outfit because of Poise Magazine.
“Did you guys see that sky blue suit that Missy is wearing today. That’s purely handmade from Italy. It makes Missy look so domineering. She’s truly a prominent and prestigious heiress.”
“That’s nothing compared to the diamond accessories on her head. Didn’t you see how fine they are? They were made using the most advanced cutting technology in the world, and every diamond has 108 surfaces in total. Oh god… I’ve never seen such advanced technology being used on such a small diamond. How amazing.”
“Her dark blue shoes may look simple without any extra accessories, but the most attractive bit about it is the broken diamonds. Not only do they match her accessories, but they also bring out the blue of her shoes. It looks like a dazzling star that’s blue in color and precious.”
Most people were focused on Wen Xinya joining the board meeting.
“Do you think she’s really here for the board meeting?”
Some were rather curious and apprehensive. Although Wen Xinya had taken part in the Ai Shang product launch, everyone knew to a certain extent that she was rather capable and not just a pretty face. However, the structure of the board was rather complicated, and they did not think that she had what it took to intervene.
“Isn’t that obvious enough? She’s just a greenhorn who’s trying to intervene with the board meeting just because she’s the successor of the Wen Family and owns 10% of the Wen Corporation’s shares. Those shareholders are not to be trifled with. Hmph! She really bites off more than she can chew.” The derisive remark garnered the support of many others.
“That’s not guaranteed. Didn’t you see that Chairman’s personal secretary, Secretary Cao is by her side? She definitely has Chairman’s support and with that, the shareholders wouldn’t dare to do anything to her.”
“She actually scored 703 in the final examinations and shut the mouths of those people who were waiting to see her fail. I suggest you cut it out with those sarcastic remarks. This Miss Wen is not a vase. She might just snap back at you next.”
Wen Xinya did not know that the employees were gossiping about her behind her back.
As soon as she entered the Wen Corporation office tower, she said with a sullen expression, “Uncle Cao, who else knows that I’m going to join the board?”
The reporters surrounded her and began pestering her as soon as she entered the office tower. Clearly, the reporters had found out long ago and were waiting for her to appear so that they could stop her from joining the meeting.
No one else except Secretary Cao knew about her plans to join the meeting, but of course, she wouldn’t doubt Secretary Cao. Hence, she asked him about it openly.
Secretary Cao said, “Chairman knows about it too. He found out when I went to pick you up at the Wen Corporation office tower this morning.”
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “In that case, everything makes sense now.”
It was her first time joining the board meeting which was crucial for her future in the Wen Corporation. Old Mr. Wen was naturally worried about whether or not she could deal with the shareholders. Hence, he specially called the shareholders whom he was close to and requested for them to look after her.
However, the shareholders were all complicated and it was only normal for the news to be leaked.
After some thought, Wen Xinya asked softly, “Uncle Cao, how long more do we have to wait until the board meeting begins?”
The mastermind hired the reporters simply because he wanted to prevent her from attending the meeting in time. If she were to be late for her first board meeting, the shareholders would definitely have a bad impression of her.
They would think that she was tardy, rude and arrogant just because she was the Wen Corporation’s successor.
Old Mr. Wen had told her about the shareholders before and hence, she knew quite a bit about time. She had also been paying attention to them in recent years and knew that Wen Haowen was undermined by the shareholders because of how incompetent he was as the CEO of the Wen Corporation. Those shareholders were only concerned about reaping benefits and earning money.
They despised Wen Haowen and obviously wouldn’t give her any face, either. If she were to be late, it would be over for her in the Wen Corporation.
The mastermind was just planning to use the shareholders to deal with her.
Secretary Cao glanced at his watch before answering, “There’s still five minutes and twelve seconds to go.”
Five minutes and twelve seconds were enough for her to make it to the board meeting in time. Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief.
Secretary Cao said softly, “Missy, this is your first time joining the board meeting. You mustn’t let the shareholders have a bad impression of you. I’ve been taking note of the time and the reporters pestered you in time. We’ll be able to give those ill-intentioned people a huge surprise.”
Wen Xinya smiled and said, “That’s very thoughtful of you, Uncle Cao.”
At this moment, they arrived in front of the elevator and Secretary Cao subconsciously walked towards the VIP elevator.
Wen Xinya said, “We’ll use the normal elevator.”
It was better to be wary. Since the mastermind had already thought of using the reporters to cause a delay, he was definitely bent on sabotaging her and hence, would surely have other tricks.
The elevator was a good spot for him to create an accident.
Secretary Cao immediately understood what she meant. The two of them boarded the normal elevator.
The elevator arrived on the 19th floor.
Wen Xinya strode along the marble ground in her four-inch heels, making her look stern and domineering.
Secretary Cao would lag behind her and follow closely.
