When she came out of the beauty salon, Qiao Anhao realized that the mall was filled with Valentines day advertis.e.m.e.nts.
She glanced at the time, there were approximately six hours till their dinner date. Since she was bored, she decided to shop around the male section to find a Valentines day present for Lu Jinnian.
Regardless of how rich or poor someone was, the way they celebrated Valentines day was similar - have a meal, watch a movie, and exchange gifts. The only difference was that a richer person would spend much more.
The entire mall was flooded with females with the same mindset as Qiao Anhao; they all were looking for gifts for their loves ones. Even thought the mall was unusually crowded, all the customers seemed to be women.
Some came by themselves, just like Qiao Anhao, while others came in pairs. When she pa.s.sed by a gla.s.s window, she heard two ladies discussing which outfit better suited one of theirs boyfriend. Qiao Anhao glanced over, seeing a bright smile and blissful expressions on their faces. At that moment, she started to wonder if she too had that look on her face.
After browsing through several stores, she settled on a tie.
The queue to the cas.h.i.+er was a little long, and, out of boredom, Qiao Anhao lifted her head to look at the television hung above the cas.h.i.+er. The news was currently airing, reporting random events. Just when it was about to be her turn, she heard a familiar name in the conversation behind her.
"Oh G.o.d, I never expected that in less than a month, Xu Enterprise will be about to change owners."
"How is it?"
"Look at the news! Xu Enterprise recently held a board meeting, and someone had bought over 53% of their shares, becoming the largest shareholder in the company. The first thing he did was fire Xu Wanli and Han Ruchu..."
"Who is it?"
"It's not stated.... Oh, its out... It's Huan Ying Entertainment's CEO Lu Jinnian..."
"Oh G.o.d, my male G.o.d bought Xu Enterprise!"
Lu Jinnian bought Xu Enterprise?
Qiao Anhao's heart trembled. She instinctively turned over to look at two speakers who were holding onto their phones as they spoke. She fished out her own phone, and the moment she entered the news site, the newest headline was out: Xu Enterprise mystery buyer, the largest shareholder exposed!
Qiao Anhao stared at the headline, hesitating before clicking on it. Initially, she didn't have the courage to look, but after taking a deep breath, she mustered enough to move her eyes to the text.
'Xu Enterprise biggest shareholder is Lu Jinnian, who was awarded for six consecutive years as the Best Screen Actor and who is also the CEO of Huan Ying Entertainment. On the day of Xu Enterprise board meeting, using 53% shares, he became the person with the biggest say…'
Qiao Anhao stared at the screen for a long while, repeatedly going over the words "Lu Jinnian" before finally digesting the article.
