Chapter 41: Daddy, Love Grandpa! (4)
Huo Suicheng was kind enough to ask him to sit down on the sofa, though. “I remember the board meeting today was brought up by Vice President Zhou. Why hasn’t the meeting started? Vice President Zhou is in a hurry to see me. What’s the matter?”
Vice President Zhou’s complexion was obviously not pretty.
“Today’s meeting was productive because I agree with several directors that the overseas market’s exploration is unnecessary for Huo’s current development. We should invest all our funds and resources in the domestic market. There is a big risk abroad. It’s a good thing that you are young, but you can’t let us old men take risks with you!”
“I have given a copy of the estimated risk and return information for overseas markets to the directors. I think they will re-examine my opinion after reading the information. As far as I know, Vice President Zhou is apparently right about people but not on things. I don’t think there’s much to talk about. I hope that Vice President Zhou will think twice before the board of directors.”
After talking, Huo Suicheng got up. “Oh yeah, I heard that Vice President Zhou sent his wife and son abroad a month ago?”
Vice President Zhou shut his eyes slowly. That’s why he came here.
“However, I heard that Vice President Zhou’s son is not very sensible. He hurt people when driving abroad. Now he is detained in the police station.”
Vice President Zhou sighed. “It’s my fault that the child is not disciplined. I know that the president has many friends abroad. If you can help me, today’s meeting, I won’t attend.”
“Seeing your sincerity, I have to help with this. Vice president Zhou has worked hard for the company for many years. You should consider your family and teach more children. It’s better to take this opportunity to retire and go home for the rest of the year.”
Vice President Zhou shot to his feet. “Huo Suicheng, you won’t get your way!”
Huo Suicheng’s face became somber for a moment as he looked at Vice President Zhou, his eyes cloudy.
“Vice President Zhou, do I look easy to talk to?”
“You’re so unscrupulous…” Vice President Zhou clenched his teeth and thought of his son, who had no news so far. Looking at Huo Suicheng, he took a deep breath and said, “OK, I promise you.”
“That would be great.” With that, Huo Suicheng strode out of the office.
Xiao Wu followed him quietly.
“Brother Cheng, over in America…”
“After this matter is dealt with, let his son contact him.”
It was easy to cheat a person who was more than 10000 kilometers away and driving under the influence.
Xiao Wu didn’t understand.
Although this kind of thing was easy to falsify, it was very likely to be exposed.
If they were not careful, it would be a mess. Vice President Zhou had been eyeing his position for a while and wouldn’t let it get away so easily.
Once exposed, Vice President Zhou would come at him with all guns blazing in today’s meeting.
Obviously, it was possible to forge a drunk-driving case and have Vice President Zhou’s son be detained by the police. Why did he suddenly change his mind?
With that, Huo Suicheng gained his official position in the company.
First, he persuaded the board of directors to invest in overseas projects, and then he got the signed contract with his father to develop Luming Mountain.
On the day the contract was received, the Yi Group staff appeared in the Huo Group’s conference room. The two parties began to cooperate on the Luming Mountain project.
But Old Master Huo, who was kept in the dark, was not aware of it.
He hadn’t paid attention to the company’s affairs for more than a year. The drawings and plans given to him by Huo Suicheng had nothing other than to build an amusement park in Luming Mountain.
So when Vice President Zhou brought this up to him, he was furious.
“Bastard! This bastard! How dare he deceive me into developing Luming Mountain!”
When Old master Huo found out the situation, he almost smashed the calligraphy into pieces.
Chen Bo stood outside, trying to persuade, but he didn’t dare. Huo Suicheng came back from the company and entered his father’s study. The quarrel turned uncontrollable, making Huo Xiaoxiao, who was sleeping in the room, come here in a hurry.
“Xiaoxiao, wake up. Listen to Uncle, Daddy and Grandpa are arguing in the study. Grandpa likes you the most, right? He is not in good health, so he can’t be angry. Can you persuade Grandpa?”
Huo Xiaoxiao heard the fierce quarrel from the half-open door of the study and was stunned.
Would the relationship between father and son break today?
“Good girl, go quickly.”
Chen Bo opened the door of the study and put Huo Xiaoxiao in while the two in the study weren’t paying attention.
“What did you promise me? It’s just to build an amusement park for Xiaoxiao. How come do you want to develop a resort now? Still keeping it from me? Have you asked for my permission!?”
