Qi Lei turned over to Mu Yuchen as he said, “Congratulations on getting out.”
Mu Yuchen looked at him, his eyes darkening. “I guess I’m lucky, but you don’t seem very fortunate.”
Qi Lei’s eyes darkened as he looked away, while his voice sounded calm, his tone felt sorrowful—
“I sure am a little unfortunate, but so what? Are you going to offer me some words of comfort right now?” His voice sounded cold just like the wind passing by.
A light flashed in Mu Yuchen’s eyes as he said, “I thought about doing so, but seeing you now makes me think that you don’t need it. Great.” He raised a toast, and they finished their glasses together.
“I’ve heard too much of those and I’m getting bored with it. Yang Sheng got a cactus plant from Xiaye several days ago. I understand. That’s my mother after all, so it’s normal to be sad, but there’s nothing I can do to bring her back to life. I still have a life to live. You don’t have to tell me. I understand,” said Qi Lei as he gulped the wine down.
“What do you plan to do from now on?” Mu Yuchen asked.
Qi Lei took a deep breath and leaned back onto the chair. “That old man wants me to take over my mother’s position. He thinks he’s doing me a favor! My mother had a lawyer and made her will a long time ago. All her shares and properties are left to me. That old man was just afraid that I might not be able to take on the stress and sell all the shares that I have.
“My mother’s group influence fell considerably after she passed away. I suppose it’ll be very challenging even if I want to rebuild it.” He looked at Mu Yuchen straight in the eye.
Mu Yuchen raised his eyebrows. “VP Wang was able to do it, and you’re saying that you can’t?”
Qi Lei smiled before sighing. “Talking to you does feel motivational at times.”
“I’ve heard what’s happening in Qi Kai. It’s not a favorable position for you. With Qi Kai getting South River Project No. 2, your situation is pretty bad.” Mu Yuchen gave him an objective analysis, “I think Qi Kai is trying to make a shift through this project. A lot of entertainment-focused companies are starting to get involved in other industries with property and business being common targets.”
Qi Lei nodded. “You’re right. That’s happening right now. Qi Kai started out in the showbiz industry, and it’s been several decades. If we don’t find other pathways to break through the current situation, we might get left behind in the future. Since the Hui Gu Corporation is interested, our company isn’t going to let this chance slip away. The whole company is focused on this one project.”
“However, it doesn’t seem like you’re involved in South River Project No. 2. You’re almost losing your spot in handling Project No. 1 as well,” Mu Yuchen noted.
Qi Lei shook his head. “Yeah, I’ve been thinking about it this whole time. I’m pretty much a failure ending up like this.”
“You’re not the only one who had it tough. Don’t simply use the word ‘failure’.” Mu Yuchen looked at him sternly for a moment and then continued, “Grandpa told me yesterday that he met you a few days ago.”
“Yes, it was regarding South River Project No. 2. I’ve understood from him that Qi Kai successfully obtained the core land. Do we not have any hope now?” Qi Lei asked.
Mu Yuchen grinned. “That’s what this is about. Do you regret working with me now?”
Qi Lei smacked his own head and looked at Mu Yuchen quietly before shaking his head. “I can only say it’s my fault. I never expected you to be arrested at such a critical moment, and I…”
“Do you think Qi Kai is better at working in the showbiz industry, or in property development?” Mu Yuchen suddenly asked before Qi Lei could reply.
“Of course the showbiz industry! Although property development is tempting, it’s still difficult for the current Qi Kai to handle it alone. Why else do you think we need the Hui Gu Corporation?” Qi Lei glanced at Mu Yuchen like he was looking at an idiot.
Mu Yuchen looked down and laughed. Then, he peered over at Su Chen and the others before he stood up. “I’m glad that you’re fine now. There’s something I should tell you, but I’ve been a little busy with all the work piled up lately. Come and meet me in my office next Friday at 3p.m.”
Ah Mo should be back by then. It was about time to tell him about Qi Feng.
Mu Yuchen walked away before Qi Lei could reply.
Qi Lei was affected by the laughter around. He closed his eyes and calmed down himself before heading over.
They were still playing cards. The loser would have to do something interesting. Li Si was mimicking the cries of animals for the third time now. The first time was a wolf howl, the second time was a pig squealing, and the third time was a dog barking.
Everyone laughed as they enjoyed Li Si’s talented acting.
Su Chen and Ji Zitong worked pretty well together.
As for Zhou Zimo, he unleashed his inner talent and gave the crowd a performance. Even Qi Lei and Mu Yuchen chuckled. Having lost again, Zhou Zimo threw his cards away and put on a serious expression. “Do you guys want to know, between Chen, Su Chen, and me, who has the biggest…?”
“Who?” Qi Lei gave him a dirty glance.
Su Chen’s first reaction was to choke Zhou Zimo’s neck.
