"These documents are critical, and they're not about Blue Hall Entertainment. So, it'll be me who'll deliver them for the time being."
While saying this, Shen Yu's expression was solemn.
"Oh, I see," Li Qi nodded as he responded, no trace of doubt on his face.
In fact, Li Qi had already heard that the company would be expanding. President Fu had started planning everything in the past year. Besides Blue Hall Entertainment, Fu family's properties could be found in every trade.
"What about you?" Shen Yu asked. "What are you doing in front of President Fu's office? Are you also changing professions to guarding the door?"
Shen Yu's expression relaxed when he said this; there was even a faint smile on his face. However, he soon couldn't smile anymore!
"Fu Bainian! Don't bully me too much…"
A sharp female voice came from inside the office. Chen Meimei's lung capacity was large, and her voice was high. After the car accident, she would always speak with a soft voice, which had made everyone forget that she used to be a tough woman that was capable of causing the collapse of a building with one scream.
Li Qi rubbed his ear, and then he spread out his hands towards Shen Yu. "It's exactly as you heard; our Madam Fu is quarreling with the President. If you enter now, you'll only be setting fire to yourself, so you should stay here with me! It'll be better after they finish quarreling."
Shen Yu hardly hesitated as he resolutely said, "No, these things are very important, so I must go in now. Move aside and don't block the door."
"Bro, remember that you're deciding this by yourself," Li Qi said as he stepped aside.
Shen Yu knocked on the office door, but the quarrel continued inside.
By now, Lan Jinyao's fair cheeks had flushed red due to anger, and even her foundation couldn't cover it. Meanwhile, Fu Bainian was as motionless as a mountain. He sat stiffly behind the desk and stared at the documents before him without looking up as if he was ignoring her.
Just as Shen Yu came in, he heard Lan Jinyao say, "Fu Bainian, since this is the case, then we have nothing to talk about. Give me the termination contract!"
Even after standing there stunned for a while, Shen Yu still couldn't return to his senses.
While their always astute President Fu actually pulled out a document from the desk drawer. Shen Yu came closer to have a look and saw it really was a termination contract.
And thus, his palm slammed down on the document. In that second, two pairs of eyes instantly focused on him.
"This document can't be signed now!" he braced himself as he spoke.
Lan Jinyao knitted her perfectly shaped brows and asked him coldly, "Why not?"
Shen Yu sarcastically smiled. "I have urgent business, so set aside the termination contract for now. President Fu needs to look at this document first. Please wait a moment, Madam."
At such time, anyone would need a stepping stone, and now that someone was willing to be a stepping stone, she just had to go with the flow.
Lan Jinyao shrugged. "Alright."
She went to sit on the couch and looked outside the window with her arms crossed in front of her chest.
Shen Yu's voice resounded in the office as he talked just loud enough for her to hear.
"Boss, this is a piece of land that we recently bid for. Please have a look at the outcome of the bid. It’s a pity, but we didn’t win this time. I feel a little puzzled, as the other party’s price was just slightly higher than ours."
Fu Bainian's face become grave at this statement.
He massaged his temples, and said, "The company has a traitor. Investigate this matter quickly. I don't want similar things to happen in the future."
Shen Yu voiced his agreement. However, he didn't immediately leave, and it looked like he was hesitating to say something.
At that moment, Lan Jinyao found that Shen Yu's gaze seemed to be set on her.
Suspicions immediately rose inside her. Is the following matter somehow related to her? Although she'd cooperated with Jiang Cheng, she didn't intend to be a traitor. Moreover, she wasn't a person on the same boat as Jiang Cheng.
Obviously, Fu Bainian also realised this particular detail. He said to Shen Yu, "She's not related. If you have anything to say, just say it."
This sentence made Lan Jinyao felt mildly happy inside. It seemed that Fu Bainian hadn't completely lost all faith in her.
Shen Yu hesitated for some time, but he finally clenched his jaw and said, "Boss, this piece of land was awarded to River Group Company, and these following documents are also related to River Group Corporation. I think that what we've done to River Group Corporation has been noticed by Jiang Cheng. He is now continuously attacking us as a warning. Do we need to stop, Boss?"
Fu Bainian swept a glance at Lan Jinyao, whose eyes were looking everywhere but at him before he said to Shen Yu, "Proceed as planned. This isn't Jiang Cheng's warning to us, but our declaration of war against him. Although B City is a prosperous city, it's mainly just that large piece of land. If we want to expand, there will eventually be conflict."
Shen Yu responded in a low voice, "Yes, then I will arrange the following matters. However, I'm worried that old institutions die hard. Even if the Jiang family no longer have a foothold in B City, our corporation's properties will also take a big hit. Currently, the profits of our other businesses have already started to significantly decline."
Upon hearing this, Lan Jinyao subconsciously frowned.
Before Fu Bainian could respond, she had already stood up and quickly walked over to say, "Bainian, you can't be so radical. What Shen Yu is saying is right."
Fu Bainian ignored her, and instead waved his hand to let Shen Yu leave first.
After Shen Yu had left, the office returned to its quiet state. The two remaining people stared at each other as if they were engaged in a silent war.
After some time, Fu Bainian opened his mouth to say, "This is something related to the business world; you don't understand anything. Just mind your own business."
"How can I not understand? Shen Yu said that our company would receive the impact. You can't be persistently wilful; you have to consider other people. You have to think it through clearly. If you do this, then you are nothing but selfish." She thought that besides being emotional about their relationship, Fu Bainian was calm and cool-headed. But now, it appeared that he'd completely lost all rationality.
"Chen Meimei, is it your own selfishness acting up or mine? Why're you stopping me from doing this? Are you doing this for that man?"
He was rambling incoherently, but at this moment, he had no control over himself.
"Fu Bainian, that's enough!" Lan Jinyao's eyes finally reddened.
The atmosphere was locked in a stalemate like a dense and sticky net covering the two, causing them unable to breathe.
Fu Bainian tightly clenched his jaw but didn't utter a word, his complexion unsightly.
Chapter 117 – Quarreling For The First Time (7)
Li Qi had been anxiously listening to the couple quarreling, but he didn't expect that someone would come to join in the chaos and create more trouble at this time. The moment he saw the person walking out of the elevator, his entire body froze.
No more than ten seconds later, a man in a casual business suit was already standing before him.
"P-President Jiang! Are you coming to look for our President Fu? It may not be convenient at the moment."
His voice was stuttering as things couldn't get any worse. When Shen Yu came out of the office, he should've quickly left with him rather than waiting and standing guard outside.
"I'm coming to look for your President Fu. I also know what's going on in the office at this moment."
The corner of the man's mouth raised slightly, forming a smug smile.
"Listen, they've started to quarrel." Jiang Cheng lowered his voice and said to him, "Do you know what the biggest weakness of your President Fu is? It's his self-righteous affection; he loves Chen Meimei too deeply. However, this love will ruin them both."
At this moment, thoughts were running rampant in Li Qi's mind. No wonder this man has become a rival that President Fu cares about. It turns out that he was the person who knew President Fu the best.
"Now, please let me in!"
Li Qi shook his head and spread out his arms to prevent Jiang Cheng from entering.
Jiang Cheng showed a sneer at the corner of his mouth. He said, "You can't stop me."
Li Qi was really unable to stop him as with just a light push from Jiang Cheng, his small body swayed to the side. Jiang Cheng immediately pushed the door open and entered without even knocking on the door.
"What are you two quarreling about?"
The loud voice of a man rang in the office. At that moment, Fu Bainian, who was sitting on the office chair, abruptly stood up and stared coldly at Jiang Cheng who was standing at the doorway. Meanwhile, Lan Jinyao was startled by Fu Bainian's sudden movement.
With a smile plastered on his face, Jiang Cheng slowly walked to Lan Jinyao's side and looked at the pair.
Lan Jinyao became nervous due to his sudden appearance.
"What are you doing here?" she asked in an unfriendly tone.
Jiang Cheng seemed to ignore her attitude. Maybe it was because his mood was jovial, so even if Lan Jinyao talked to him in this tone, he still looked at Fu Bainian with a smile. He didn't appear angry at all.
"I'm here to look for you, of course. We talked about it letting you play the female lead role before, so I didn't expect for our plans to suddenly change. When I received the call this morning, I immediately rushed here, and then I realised that it was President Fu who refused to let you go."
As he was saying this, Jiang Cheng's eyes stared straight at Fu Bainian, ridicule gleaming in his eyes.
"President Fu, are you worried that after your artist cooperated with my company, she would be like Shen Wei'an and switch over to our company? It seems that President Fu doesn’t believe in the artists in his company," he chuckled, not showing the slightest trace of hostility.
Lan Jinyao and Fu Bainian simultaneously clenched their fists.
Jiang Cheng was indeed a master negotiator. He'd managed to use a simple word or two to easily provoke someone’s mood. When Lan Jinyao heard Shen Wei’an's name, her decision to play it the role was strengthened. While for Fu Bainian, when he heard the words 'switch over to our company' and 'President Fu doesn’t believe in the artists in his company', his blood seemed to be frozen by a deep chill.
Not long ago, Lan Jinyao was still accusing him: Fu Bainian, you don't believe in me, right?
That sentence was the most profound fear hidden within his heart.
"Jiang Cheng, don't interfere with things between Meimei and me. As for business matters, I refuse to change my mind."
Jiang Cheng chuckled. "Of course, this will be done according to President Fu's command. Now, I just want to ask, will you let Meimei go to my company for an audition or not? Everyone is waiting for her; even Shen Wei'an is coming!"
The two spoke at the same time. After Fu Bainian and Lan Jinyao finished speaking, their eyes locked with small sparks.
Shen Wei'an's name was already like an obstacle in Lan Jinyao's mind. It couldn't be overcome unless she finished these matters.
Meanwhile, Jiang Cheng was the thorn in Fu Bainian's heart that he couldn't free himself of for a lifetime.
Fu Bainian's gaze was glued tightly to Lan Jinyao's face. Then, he said in a deep voice, "Chen Meimei, don't forget that you're still an employee under Blue Hall Entertainment."
Lan Jinyao became furious when she heard that. She picked up the termination contract on the desk to sign it. However, just as her hand went to grab the pen, it was stopped by Fu Bainian. The man gritted his teeth as he asked her, "Chen Meimei, you dare to sign it?"
"Why wouldn't I dare?" Lan Jinyao wasn't intimidated by Fu Bainian's menacing gaze. She struggled to raise her hand.
The next moment, Fu Bainian's hand was also held in someone's grip. Then, Lan Jinyao noticed that the veins on his arm were protruding from the force of Jiang Cheng's grip.
"President Fu, aren’t you going a bit overboard? Since your employee has already made a decision, why are you make things difficult for her? If her heart isn't with you, what good is it to keep her?"
Lan Jinyao felt a headache forming. "Jiang Cheng, please don't cause more trouble, alright? We're currently talking about work matters."
Fu Bainian finally released her hand.
His dark eyes were filled with sorrow.
"Think carefully, Chen Meimei; do you have the money to pay the penalty fee? You should be clear that Chen Meile won't help you, and she won't let the Chen family help you either."
At this moment, Lan Jinyao suddenly hesitated. With her anger gradually dissipating, her rational gained the upper hand. She was very clear about what she was doing.
Right then, Jiang Cheng, who was standing at the side, suddenly opened his mouth. He said to Lan Jinyao, "I can help you pay the penalty fee. Just treat it as remuneration from the TV series, so you don't have to worry. If you want to sign, just sign it!"
This sentence seemed to ignite Fu Bainian's anger. Before Lan Jinyao could react, his fist had landed squarely on Jiang Cheng's face. A corner of Jiang Cheng's mouth was cut by Fu Bainian's fist, and a few drops of blood seeped out.
"You started it, Fu Bainian!"
Jiang Cheng wasn’t polite at all and immediately retaliated with his fist landing on Fu Bainian's face. The documents on the desk were then swept to the ground.
Watching the two men fighting, Lan Jinyao became anxious and rushed to the door. "Li Qi, quickly call the security guard!"
Ten minutes later, both men were bruised and panting on the floor.
Lan Jinyao held Fu Bainian's face, tears continuously rolling down her cheeks as she repeatedly said, "I won't sign, don't fight anymore…"
