Full Cup of Water - Chap 39
Xin Qianyu returned to China and worked directly in the group as CEO. The CFO said to Xin Qianyu every day: “Remember to ask someone to take over the position of CFO. I will cash out and leave in a year.”
Xin Qianyu didn’t try to keep him, knowing that Yuzhuo couldn’t keep the CFO. If Su Zhong hadn’t come forward and added the temptation of equity, I’m afraid people wouldn’t be willing to come to Yuzhuo.
However, Xin Qianyu only said: “Cash it out in one year… How about this, you transfer all the equity in your hand to a friend of mine.”
CFO asked: “Is the friend you are talking about you?”
Xin Qianyu laughed, but did not answer directly. He only said, “Make a price!”
The CFO thought about it and gave a quotation.
Xin Qianyu looked at it and said, “I’ll go back and discuss it with Su Zhong before I reply to you.”
To be honest, Xin Qianyu really didn’t understand much about financial matters and wanted to discuss it with Su Zhong.
After get off work, Xin Qianyu left Yuzhuo Building. As soon as he went out, he received a message from Su Zhong saying that he would pick him up from get off work today.
Xin Qianyu was really annoyed: “I’m so big, don’t I know how to go home by myself? Do I need someone to pick me up?”
Su Zhong replied: “It’s because I don’t know how to go home by myself and need you.”
Xin Qianyu couldn’t stand it: she didn’t know who taught this tree to talk.
When Xin Qianyu walked downstairs of the company, he saw that the square downstairs had been artificially vacated, and a red sports car was parked in the middle of the space, which was very eye-catching. Su Zhong was wearing a snow-white suit and standing next to the red car, attracting special attention.
There was an unusual smell of coquettishness in the air.
Xin Qianyu woke up subconsciously: She is so coquettish, she must have a big move!
Su Zhong looked at Xin Qianyu seriously and said, “Xiaoyu…”
“Wait a minute!” Xin Qianyu quickly noticed that Su Zhong’s hand was on the trunk button, as if he was about to trigger some mechanism. Xin Qianyu’s mind was spinning rapidly, and she pointed to the trunk and said, “Shouldn’t there be 999 red roses in it that are as cool as this sports car?”
Su Zhong was horrified: “How do you know!”
Xin Qianyu raised his eyebrows: “Because it’s too old-fashioned.”
“…” Su Zhong’s ears that were originally upright like a puppy asking for credit immediately drooped down, “Yes, really…”
“Isn’t that one a red rose, and the most tacky, unmatched kind that is tied together, just like two ugly bear dolls?”
Su Zhong nodded stiffly.
Xin Qianyu was simply suffocated: He personally had no objection to red roses, but red roses paired with disasters were really…
“Let’s go quickly.” Xin Qianyu said in a pleading tone, “Don’t be like this, it’s so embarrassing.”
“Will it?” Su Zhong also panicked, “Do you hate this way of proposing?”
Xin Qianyu staggered in fright: “What method did you say?”
“The way to propose.” Su Zhong replied, “And the band and ceremony guards have already stoodby…”
“No, the planner said this is very old.” Su Zhong said, “We are going to play “You Will Marry Me Today.”
“!!!… It’s not as good as “Wedding March”!” Xin Qianyu was so embarrassed that her scalp went numb.
When I thought about opening the trunk, there would be 999 red roses paired with a red sports car, and then a few people would jump out from the crowd and surround me, playing and singing “You Will Marry Me Today” – still downstairs of the company, in the middle of the square!
Some people may think this is quite romantic, but Xin Qianyu can’t stand it.
When he was young, he once said: If anyone wants to place a circle of candles and flowers and confess to me in public, Bruce Lee will kick them away.
Xin Qianyu’s toes were almost curled up in embarrassment.
“Oh, no.” Xin Qianyu has never been so impressed by his insight and wit, “Don’t let them come out now!”
How could Su Zhong not listen to his wife?
He immediately informed Thomas to cancel the entire operation.
Thomas felt stunned and said after a while: “Then can I get off work?”
“No,” Su Zhong said, “You go back and complain about the wedding planner.”
Xin Qianyu got into the red sports car and glanced at the interior. She knew that this was a low-end car, and this color was definitely not a car that Su Zhong would usually drive. Therefore, Xin Qianyu looked at Su Zhong with a discerning eye: “Is this car rented by the wedding company?”
Su Zhong nodded: “They say this can give you an unforgettable proposal.”
“…” The corners of Xin Qianyu’s mouth twitched, “It’s truly unforgettable.”
Su Zhong’s expression was like that of a child who had done something bad: “Did you mess up?”
It was always easy for Xin Qianyu to feel infinite affection for Su Zhong, especially when Su Zhong’s usually cold and ruthless eyes melted and were filled with grievances.
“No, this is not your fault.” Xin Qianyu patted Su Zhong on the shoulder, “If you don’t understand this, I can understand if you seek help from professionals. And because you don’t understand, you can’t distinguish between good and bad. I also understand…”
Su Zhong also made a note of Thomas in his mind: “The planner gave me several plans, I compared them, and Thomas also said this one is good.”
“Is Thomas a straight man?” Xin Qianyu asked.
Su Zhong said: “Yes.”
Xin Qianyu asked again: “Is he a man from science and engineering?”
Su Zhong said: “Yes.”
Xin Qianyu sighed: “Don’t ask him this again…it’s not easy for him either.”
Su Zhong was wearing a snow-white dress and had a beautiful appearance. When he just stood outside the car, he looked like a standing narcissus, but now he looked like a wilted narcissus.
Xin Qianyu looked at the road and suddenly asked, “Why are you thinking about proposing?”
Su Zhong was stunned for a moment and said, “Didn’t you say you wanted to propose marriage?”
“I…did I say that?” Xin Qianyu blinked, looking confused.
“Yes,” Su Zhong said again, “Do you think proposing is important?”
“Ah… right.” Xin Qianyu said calmly, “But we are already married, so the proposal is not that important.”
But Su Zhong shook his head, with a sad expression: “In your heart, we are not married yet.”
“Su Zhong…” Xin Qianyu was stunned.
Su Zhong continued: “For you, this marriage is an accident and an error.” When he said this, Su Zhong felt uncomfortable in his heart, but there was still no emotion in his tone. It was always the case that he had trouble expressing his emotions through his tone of voice. But he still tried his best to explain his thoughts to Xin Qianyu: “I haven’t obtained your consent for this marriage, right?”
“Su Zhong…” Xin Qianyu didn’t know what to answer.
This seems to be the case. Xin Qianyu feels that she got married inexplicably, and is in a difficult position because of her listing.
To him, this marriage was indeed an accident and a mistake.
Su Zhong said seriously: “I hope to get your consent.”
Xin Qianyu felt complicated and said bitterly: “I haven’t even agreed to get back together, how can I agree to get married?”
Su Zhong said: “I know you have the right to refuse. I just feel that I should provide you with all the rituals you deserve.”
Xin Qianyu was stunned.
“Nod or shake your head, the decision is up to you.” Su Zhong said, “I’m just continuing my ‘stalking’.”
The seriousness in Su Zhong’s eyes made Xin Qianyu unable to ignore it.
From the moment they reunited, Su Zhong tried his best to express his cherishment for Xin Qianyu.
Xin Qianyu tried his best to avoid it, but couldn’t really put an end to it.
Even Xin Qianyu himself began to feel that he was not quite authentic.
Xin Qianyu closed her eyes slightly, not knowing what to say.
After a while, Xin Qianyu said in a low voice: “Don’t look for a wedding company next time.”
“I know.” Su Zhong nodded obediently.
“It needs to be special.” Xin Qianyu said dullly, “Red roses, singing, etc. are too strange, and they don’t fit your style. If you didn’t come up with this thing yourself, what’s the point? ?”
Su Zhong silently wrote down: “I know, differentiation…”
“Ah?” Xin Qianyu didn’t recover for a moment.
“Differentiation, product differentiation.” Su Zhong said, “To satisfy customers, we must produce something special. And this special thing is a differentiated product…”
Xin Qianyu had a headache: “Ah, yes, you reminded me that I have to write a paper when I get back.”
Even if you become a CEO, you still can’t let go of your homework.
There are basically no classes in the second half of the semester, and everyone is busy writing graduation thesis.
Therefore, after Xin Qianyu’s proposal report was approved, he simply returned to China and wrote the thesis while working.
Writing a paper is also hard work, and working is also hard work. Xin Qianyu didn’t know why she was in so much pain.
Maybe, this is the only way to become a master is to endure hardships!
The days when I have to study and go to work are very fulfilling.
Xin Qianyu also gradually got used to the days of “living together” with Su Zhong again. Because we don’t sleep in the same room, it feels like we have an extra roommate, and the real feeling of getting married is almost zero.
Su Zhong didn’t mention the proposal anymore, and a delicate peace was maintained between the two.
On this day, a sudden change occurred in the group.
Director Chen, who used to resell pirated textbooks in Yuzhuo Group, was caught.
It turned out that after the incident with the AA Association, Xin Mu fired Director Chen and asked him to sign a confidentiality agreement so that he would not reveal that he had resold AA teaching materials.
After Director Chen was fired, he simply stopped doing business and started a piracy business. He made a lot of money in the past few years, but he was caught.
Under interrogation by the police, Director Chen ignored the fact that he had signed a confidentiality agreement and revealed that Yuzhuo was involved in reselling teaching materials.
Just like that, the whole world knew that what was said before about storing pirated textbooks in the Yuzhuo Group’s warehouse was true.
One stone stirred up a thousand waves, and public opinion was in an uproar.
Even the AA Association heard the news, and angrily called to question and said it was considering suing Yuzhuo Group.
I don’t know who leaked the news, and the news that “AA Association may sue Yuzhuo” spread like wildfire, which greatly hit the stock price of Yuzhuo Group.
Yuzhuo’s executives are also very worried about this.
When everyone was sitting together for a meeting, Xin Mu also expressed his innocence: “This is Director Chen’s personal behavior. How can you make it sound like our group is selling pirated copies? Speaking of which, we Yuzhuo are also victims! We are really We paid a lot of money to buy genuine textbooks from the AA Association, and our company property was stolen and resold by Director Chen, so we are the ones losing money!”
“But now everyone doesn’t see it that way.” Xin Simu analyzed calmly, “Everyone will only see ‘Yuzhuo employees reselling teaching materials’, and even more extreme, they will only see ‘Yuzhuo reselling teaching materials’. This situation is very important to us. It’s very detrimental.”
Uncle Xin couldn’t help but speak at this time: “It seems that this was all caused by Xin Qianyu not being careful enough in his actions!”
Xin Qianyu had expected that Uncle Xin would say this, and was not too surprised, so he said without sincerity: “I was indeed not cautious enough at the beginning, but now I’d better think of a solution to the problem first.”
The old man raised his eyelids: “It’s good if Xiaoyu can take responsibility.”
When Xin Qianyu and Xin Mu heard the old man’s words, their hearts skipped a beat: The subtext of the old man’s words was “This is Xin Qianyu’s fault, and Xin Qianyu must bear it.”
Xin Qianyu only said: “I just happened to go back to school to prepare some things. I just flew to the United States and explained it clearly to the AA Association.”
“Yes.” The old man nodded, “I believe you can solve this matter. After all, you are the CEO.”
These words are really heartbreaking, as if to say, if it can’t be solved, don’t be the CEO.
Xin Qianyu nodded humbly and returned to the office with Xin Mu after the meeting.
Xin Mu asked worriedly: “Are you sure you can complete the mission? I think the old man’s intention is to force you to issue a military order.”
“This is still superficial.” Xin Qianyu blinked and said, “When the IPO was successful, he didn’t divide my equity and just praised me verbally. Now that the stock price has dropped, he immediately took action on me. It shows that he doesn’t want me at all. Sit tight in this position. Even if the AA problem is resolved today, will there definitely be no new problems in the future? Every time there is a problem, I will have to issue a military order. At most, I can keep the position of CEO. If not, I will be beheaded immediately. Then I Even ten heads are not enough for him to chop off!”
Xin Mu was also quite dissatisfied, but after all, the old man was his father. She sighed and said, “You are his grandson. You and Xin Simu are the only heirs. Now it seems that girl Xin Simu can’t compare to you… What’s the point of dad suppressing you?”
“I don’t know either.” Xin Qianyu said, “He may not have understood it himself, but he is just relying on his male instinct to ‘defend his sovereignty.'”
Xin Mu seemed to understand something, and shook his head helplessly: “Oh, men are all dogs. Old dogs especially like to bark, I understand.”
Xin Qianyu didn’t expect that Xin Mu would compare men to dogs, even his own father.
“Mom, if I say…” Xin Qianyu paused and said a hypothetical sentence in a solemn tone, “If the dynasty is to be changed, what do you think?”
Xin Mu was a little surprised when he heard this, but after a few seconds, he smiled: “You don’t know who your mother is? Of course I am more suitable to be the empress dowager than the eldest princess.”
