Reborn Girl’s New Life - Chapter 730
Chapter 730 Buy the Shao Enterprise
Yuan Xi told Gu Changle that he would come to visit the next afternoon.
Sure enough, he was punctual.
He arrived at the Shao Family at six o’clock the next afternoon.
Because they had made this appointment, Gu Changle didn’t feel surprised when a family servant told her that Yuan Xi had arrived.
It was just that Gu Changle’s heart raced when she saw Yuan Xi.
She wasn’t interested in his voice.
However, when she saw Yuan Xi, she felt joy because of his gorgeous appearance.
Yuan Xi was about twenty-seven or twenty-eight years old. He was handsome with amorous eyes, a high nose, and thin lips.
When he looked at someone, it would make him or her feel like a spring breeze blowing into his or her heart.
It made Gu Changle itch.
Seeing Yuan Xi, Gu Changle was a bit stunned.
Yuan Xi greeted Gu Changle with a smile, “Miss Gu, you are really a beauty, just like what everyone says.”
Hearing Yuan Xi’s compliments, Gu Changle chuckled and said, “Mr. Yuan, you are also outstanding.”
After they complimented each other, Yuan Xi asked her, “Why haven’t I seen Mr. Shao?”
Because the Shao Family was in critical condition and Yuan Xi had come.
Shao Tianze waited for Yuan Xi in the study after returning from the Shao enterprise early.
Hearing that Yuan Xi asked about Shao Tianze, Gu Changle said, “Tianze is now in the study. Let me ask a servant to call him over.”
“Thanks a lot.”
Gu Changle was very happy because she saw a handsome man and was complimented by him.
She immediately turned to order the servant, “Go to the study to tell Tianze Mr. Yuan has arrived.”
Hearing this, the servant immediately went to the study on the second floor to find Shao Tianze.
Meanwhile, Gu Changle and Yuan Xi looked at each other.
They smiled at each other. Then Gu Changle said, “Tianze is a bit busy. He’ll come soon. Have a cup of tea and wait for him, OK?”
Yuan Xi would not refuse the beauty he complimented just now.
So he agreed, “OK. Thanks for your hospitality.”
As Yuan Xi was so polite and humorous, and he was such a handsome man, Gu Changle enjoyed their conversation.
They had a most agreeable chat in the living room.
When Shao Tianze came downstairs five minutes later, he saw Yuan Xi and Gu Changle talking animatedly.
Seeing that Gu Changle was smiling so happily at Yuan Xi, Shao Tianze slightly frowned and coughed.
It immediately drew Yuan Xi’s attention.
Yuan Xi followed the voice and saw Shao Tianze. Then he stood up and said to him, “You are Mr. Shao, right?”
“h.e.l.lo, Mr. Yuan.”
They nodded to each other, which was a kind of greetings.
Gu Changle also introduced one to the other, “Tianze, this is Yuan Xi, who I told you about.”
Shao Tianze sat beside Gu Changle, looking at Yuan Xi.
Yuan Xi smiled at Shao Tianze.
Gu Changle introduced again, “This is Tianze, the one you want to meet.”
Yuan Xi said, “I had been wanting to see Mr. Shao, but I rarely had a chance, which made me wait for several years.”
Yuan Xi felt a bit sorry.
But Shao Tianze said, “Why do you want to see me? Did we meet before?”
“Although we didn’t know each other before, I heard that you were entangled with the Gu Family. Thus I want to see the man who could marry Gu Changge and find out what kind of a person he is.”
Shao Tianze was disgusted with Yuan Xi’s reply.
When Gu Changge was single, many people in Yuncheng wanted to marry her.
Several other families, including Chu Mochen, tried their best to impress Gu Cheng and Gu Changge.
They hoped that they could get the beauty and the fame together.
But Gu Changge was an ambitious woman.
Since Gu Changle’s early age, she had never thought of relying on a man for the rest of her life.
She had all her life in control. No matter she fought against her enemies openly or secretly.
She could always beat them and be the winner.
Yuan Xi looked at Shao Tianze, continuing, “I wonder if you have recovered now.”
“What do you mean by recovery?”
Shao Tianze asked Yuan Xi.
Yuan Xi smiled, replying, “The pain of losing your wife.”
Shao Tianze remained silent for a moment.
He did not say a word.
Gu Changle, who was listening to them, said at this time, “The sudden death of my elder sister really caught us off guard. Tianze has been sad for a long time, but he feels much better now.”
Hearing that, Yuan Xi lifted the teacup and looked at them with a smile, “Mr. Shao, as there is such a tender woman like Miss Changle comforting and enlightening you, I think you forgot the pain soon.”
His words had a double meaning.
Hearing that, Gu Changle and Shao Tianze got the message that Yuan Xi knew about their relations.h.i.+p.
Otherwise, Yuan Xi couldn’t have said that.
Gu Changle frowned and looked at Shao Tianze, feeling awkward.
Yuan Xi was right.
However, she did not know whether she should deny the truth or admit it generously.
Seeing Gu Changle was in a dilemma, Shao Tianze said, “Go back to your room and have a rest. When dinner is ready, I’ll let you know.”
Hearing that, Gu Changle had to leave though she didn’t really want to.
“OK. Have a nice chat.”
Shao Tianze nodded.
When Gu Changle left and there was no family servant around, Shao Tianze said to Yuan Xi, “You know a lot. How about telling me the purpose of your visit directly?”
“Spill it.” Shao Tianze said.
Hearing that, Yuan Xi said with a smile, “Now the Shao Family is in a dilemma, so why not let me have it?”
Yuan Xi came straight to the point.
Shao Tianze frowned, replying, “You mean…”
“I’m rich enough to purchase the Shao Family. Just name a price.”
Hearing Yuan Xi’s words, Shao Tianze couldn’t help sneering, “Oh, really?”
“Now, the Shao Family is no longer the Gu Family in the past. Now the Shao Family is in such a critical condition, so why not sell it to me now? What are you waiting for?”
Shao Tianze looked at Yuan Xi.
Seeing that he did not say anything, Yuan Xi sighed, “Mr. Shao, please think twice. You can hardly turn the tide.”
Yuan Xi made a point.
His words stabbed into Shao Tianze’s heart like a sharp knife.
He couldn’t help clenching his fists.
As if Yuan Xi could not see Shao Tianze’s dark face, he continued without scruple, “The Gu Family had once been thriving, but Gu Changge died early. According to the development trend of the Gu Family, you shouldn’t have let it go downhill so fast. After all, it is less than two years since Gu Changge died.”
Yuan Xi’s remarks were sharp and cruel.
He was saying that Shao Tianze wasn’t capable enough to manage the Gu Family and he was a loser that was no match for Gu Changge.
Though Shao Tianze knew what Yuan Xi meant, he couldn’t refute it.
After Gu Changge died, the Gu Family had changed into the Shao Family.
Shao Tianze took over the Gu Family and intended to build his own business empire.
However, the truth was cruel.
He not only failed to build his own business empire but also let Gu Changge’s huge empire collapse.
“Think about it. After you took over the Gu Family, it began to fall apart. And then you lost the trust of the senior managers little by little which resulted in their leaving. Moreover, there were more than one senior left, right?”
He was right. Guo Yuyue, Yan Jin, and his failure in marrying the Luo Family in Harbor City.
Little by little, he lost all the people who could or might support him.
He didn’t like the change or want any of these people to betray him.
However, there was nothing he could do.
Shao Tianze couldn’t win the hearts of the people who Gu Changge could draw over to her side.
He clenched his fists on one side of his body, holding them firmly and pinching his nails into the flesh of his palm.
“It’s better to give the Shao enterprise to me than let it rot in your hands.”
Yuan Xi looked at him, smiling.
Shao Tianze narrowed his eyes. He didn’t reply to Yuan Xi soon.
Yuan Xi looked at Shao Tianze, waiting for his reply.
But Shao Tianze asked him at this moment, “What on earth do you know?”
Yuan Xi replied with a smile, “I know quite a lot. For instance, you faked your ident.i.ty and cheated Gu Changge. You and Gu Changle had an affair for a long time and then conspired to kill Gu Changge.”
It was easy for Yuan Xi to say so.
However, every word made Shao Tianze scared.
“Who are you?”
Shao Tianze stared at him as if he wanted to see what was under his skin. He asked Yuan Xi, “Who on earth are you?”
“You don’t need to care about who I am. You just need to hand over the Shao enterprise to me when it’s time. Oh, by the way, maybe I shouldn’t have called it the Shao enterprise. I should have called it the Gu’s. Am I right, Mr. Shao?”
Hearing Yuan Xi’s irritating words, Shao Tianze finally couldn’t help but rise to his feet in a fury, pointing to the door and snapping, “Get lost!”
Yuan Xi was amused by Shao Tianze’s sudden fury, sneering, “I came here to negotiate.”
“I’ll never give you the Shao enterprise!”
“Oh? Is it because that you still miss Gu Changge? You are the one who killed her. Why are you still missing her?”
Shao Tianze was trembling with anger, repeating, “I’ll not cooperate with you. Never!”
“It’s not like you, Mr. Shao.” Yuan Xi was not worried. He walked up to Shao Tianze and looked at him, threatening, “If you don’t agree, guess if I will make it public that you killed Gu Changge?”
