(Fall Out (1)

At over 70 years old this year, Shen Yue had rushing about for his whole life and never quite rested. In his early years, when he was still in the military, he could have continued climbing upwards too, but he considered Liang Fuhua, so he just gave up on the opportunity to be promoted. When he could have gotten a high position, he firmly chose to retire from the military. Upon his return, he began to rush about, and worked hard one step at a time before Fuhua grew to what it was today.

Shen Wenna was his and Liang Fuhua’s only daughter. After she suffered the many misfortunes, Shen Yue was more open-minded now.

As long as the children thought it was okay, he would be fine with it. Everything else did not seem as important anymore. As the older generation, they just need to supervise.

“Yes, I can finally relax. I’ve been staying with Zirui these past few days, and I feel quite satisfied too. The only regret I have is that Fuhua left a little too soon. She would have been very happy to see our life right now.”

Lan Zilang knew well how much Shen Yue missed Liang Fuhua. He admired the way this elder had built his achievements from scratch, and at the same time was touched by his deep loyalty. This was also one of the reasons why he had stayed loyally by Shen Yue’s side.

“Elder CEO, I’m sure Elder Madam will see all of it. Back then, Elder Madam was more worried about Miss Wenna. Now, the hard times have gone and the good times are about to begin for Miss Wenna and her husband. Miss Xiaye has also found herself a good partner. Chairman Mu is a rare, fine man. Elder Madam would’ve only felt glad. Instead, it’s you, Elder CEO. You must take care of your health well. There will be many more great-grandchildren for you to carry in time to come.”

He looked at Shen Yue’s aged face that had experienced so much in life along with his white hair. Lan Zilang suddenly felt sad.

Time always passed by so quickly. In the blink of an eye, more than 20 years had passed by just like that. The business titan who was practically a legend with his all-powerful prime time in the business world, and had now become a gray-haired old man in his final days. This contrast would make anyone feel sad.

“These past two years, I could already feel myself not being as strong as I’d wished. I have to admit that I’m old. Zilang, you’ve been with me for so many years now. You’ve really been troubled a lot in all those years. In time to come, Xiaye will still need you to advise her. If you’re free, come over to visit my place. The house is too quiet. Zirui will usually need to be at school too. I’m afraid I’d be bored alone.” Shen Yue thought about it, and could not help but lament.

Lan Zilang nodded. “Don’t worry, Elder CEO. I will.”

It had been so many years that they worked together. Lan Zilang respected Shen Yue like he was his father, so Shen Yue did not need to say that at all.

When Mu Zirui snapped back to attention and heard their conversation, he could not help but walk over to tug at Shen Yue’s frail hand. “Great-grandfather, don’t worry, I’ll be by your side every day. If there’s anything you want to say, you can tell me, Xiao Rui. Mother told me that I’m a very qualified listener.”

Upon feeling the tug, Shen Yue chortled out loud happily. He patted Mu Zirui’s head lovingly. “Good! Good! My great-grandson knows how to love his great-grandfather!”

Lan Zilang laughed along as well before he continued, “Oh, right, Elder CEO, the materials for the South River Project tender are still being prepared. News keeps coming from the government’s side, and it looks like there’s a slight delay. I want to seize this time to let Miss Xiaye smoothen out the company matters first.”

“Mmm, I heard about that too. Qi Lei from Qi Kai isn’t bad at all. Ah Chen especially recommended him to me, but I don’t quite agree with his old man. He says one thing and does the other. I heard that he wanted to collaborate with City B’s Hui Gu Corporation.”

When this was mentioned, Shen Yue became quite dissatisfied.

Lan Zilang hesitated but could not help voicing his concern, “There is some news about that. Hui Gu Corporation’s got solid capabilities. In fact, I heard that they’ve known each other for a long time, and have some past grudges with Chairman Mu. For the bid this time, I’m afraid that there’ll be some risks. We have to do our best to get this bid. Once South River Project No. 1 starts, many people will notice that it is in high demand, and they’ll be coveting after it. Projects No. 1 and No. 2 are closely related too. Glory World’s main forte isn’t on property. That’s why they need us to help out. However, based on what I know, Hui Gu Corporation has real estate background. In terms of capabilities, they wouldn’t be inferior to us. Plus, our city has been promoting heavily to attract foreign investments, so I’m afraid it won’t be easy to get this project.”

“Ah Chen’s mainly developing the living area. They have to put in a lot of effort too. Wasn’t the government planning on building a new city towards the south? What I think is that we should mainly go into living spaces, and do our best. Try to find out what grudges they have with Ah Chen. These people are clearly trying to bully my people. I’ll have to score off for the children!” As Shen Yue said this, the flickering light in his aged eyes turned chilly too.

He knew that Shen Yue was distinguished for shielding others, so Lan Zilang responded, “Okay, Elder CEO! I’ll get someone to investigate right away!”

At this moment, inside Gu Lingsha’s office in Qi Kai Corporation.

Gu Lingsha did not know that only half a day would have passed when Qi Lei would go to her. He barged right in, looking stormy.

“Did something happen?” Gu Lingsha scowled. Her assistant was still there, so the fact that Qi Lei did that made her look bad.

Qi Lei walked over to her desk, and propped his hands on the cold table as he leaned towards her in her chair. His eyes had darkened. “Xiaye’s incident… Was it you who did it?”

She immediately frowned and lowered her gaze. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“You do! I asked if you did it. You pushed her, didn’t you?” Qi Lei’s low voice was questioning.

Gu Lingsha sneered for a while. She turned to look at the computer screen beside her. “VP Qi, I have no idea what you’re talking about!”

“Shasha, I told you not to disturb Xiaye. All those past grudges have got nothing to do with her and her child. You didn’t have to go for her. When did you become this cruel?”

Qi Lei clenched his fists slightly and looked at Gu Lingsha in contempt. “Are you thinking about how to expand your resentment? Haven’t you implicated enough people?”
