Who hated her so much?
Who despised her so much that they wanted to mess with her?
Zhong Qianqian shook her head aggressively. “No! How could I have known a big shot who knows Uncle Gu, what more feuding with such a big shot? Is someone talking ill of me in front of Uncle Gu?
Gu Mingzhe really wanted to strangle Zhong Qianqian, this brain-dead b*tch, to death. He took a deep breath and tried to make his voice sound less angry. If he got angry, it would not be what Zhong Qianqian, an outwardly strong but inwardly brittle little white flower, could bear.
“Qianqian, do you know what my family relies on to keep its foothold in the Emperor District?”
“Your family relies on real estate.”
“Yes, my family relies on real estate, hotels, and jade. These three big industries allow us to keep our place in Emperor District. But, did you know, this morning, our business partners and top suppliers in the real estate, hotel, and jade industry have all proposed terminating their contract with us. Even if they have to pay us for the breach of contract, they still wanted to proceed. Do you know what this means?”
“Wh…what?” Zhong Qianqian was already so scared she could not think straight. What did these things have to do with her?
“If all the suppliers severe contact with us, all of our in-progress projects will come to a standstill. The bank’s loan cannot be paid off, and once that happens, even if we are the third most powerful family in Emperor District, we will quickly collapse within three months. When that happens, not only will we be permanently removed from the aristocratic circle, we’ll be debt-ridden, and in order to repay the huge debt, we’ll have to become fugitives.”
Zhong Qianqian’s face turned pale.
“Isis it that bad?”
Then, when she gets married to Gu Mingzhe, would she not have to become a beggar?
“Yes, three months is actually being optimistic. You know, the bigger the business, the more reliant it becomes on a continuous stream of funds.”
“B-but, what does this have to do with me?” Zhong Qianqian was dumbfounded.
Gu Mingzhe took another deep breath and said, “Because, when all these matters surfaced at the same time, my dad asked why they had to do this. The answers they gave my dad were the same, they said it’s because Gu Family’s future daughter-in-law Zhong Qianqian offended someone she shouldn’t have offended.”
Zhong Qianqian stood unsteadily and fell backwards. Seeing that a cart was being pushed over from behind, Gu Mingzhe reached out and pulled her up.
Zhong Qianqian was soft as soap as she conveniently nestled in Gu Mingzhe’s arms, before sobbing tearfully.
“I didn’t do anything! I really didn’t do anything! Who would slander me like this? It’s Zhong Nuannuan, it must be Zhong Nuannuan! It must be because Zhong Nuannuan thinking that I tried to get someone to kill her, so she had Leng Qirui help her out. Yes, that must be it! How could she be so vicious? She’s my younger sister! How could she be so vicious? Not only does she want to kill me, but also the entire Gu Family!”
“Leng Qirui? Who is Leng Qirui?”
“He is a young master of the second-most powerful family in Emperor District.”
Gu Mingzhe was alarmed.
“Leng Qirui? You mean he’s from the Leng Family of Emperor District?”
Zhong Qianqian replied, a little scared, “I don’t know if he’s from the Leng Family. I only heard that his family is the second most powerful family in Emperor District, and that his dad is the commander-in-chief of the Jiang District military base.”
Gu Mingzhe was horrified.
He felt like strangling Zhong Qianqian to death. What should he do?
She even dared to provoke Leng Jinpeng’s son!
