Reborn Aristocrat: Return Of The Vicious Heiress Chapter 1096
After hearing Secretary Caos words, the rest of the directors similarly expressed their intentions to consider the budget before giving an answer. After all, Secretary Cao was Old Mr. Wens trusted secretary. In other words, he represented Old Mr. Wen.
"Youre right, Secretary Cao. The funds are a serious matter and we have to consider it carefully before coming to a decision."
"Its such a large amount of funds. We cant just approve of it casually. We have to think about our budget, too."
"The entertainment city project is a large one that needs time to be developed. We still have to go through some careful consideration."
Everyones words made Wen Haowens face grow sullen. He had thought about a thousand excuses that he could give to convince the directors. However, he was at a loss for what to do now.
He stared at Secretary Cao coldly. The thought of the retired Old Mr. Wen making Secretary Cao create trouble for him made Wen Haowen incredibly exasperated.
Wen Haowen turned pale.
Just as Wen Haowen was about to speak, Ning Shuqian beat him to it. "Dear directors, your concerns are not uncalled for. We indeed ought to consider carefully before investing such a massive amount of funds. However, just like the directors have mentioned, the matter about the entertainment city project is very serious and the shareholders are taking this seriously too. We cant delay the progress of the project. Why dont you guys let us know how long you have to consider this for?"
It was not impossible for Wen Haowen to use his status as a major shareholder to undermine the directors. However, if he were to do so he would definitely offend some of the directors who were the spokespeople of the shareholders. Hence, it would be inappropriate of him to offend the shareholders.
The entertainment city project had just begun and he still needed the support of the shareholders, as well as the funds that they could invest. Thus, he felt that there was no harm in taking a step back now.
Once the Wen Corporation began to delve into the project, they would not be able to get out of it. By then, they would have no choice but to approve of the funds.
He decided to tolerate it for now. Anyway, Wen Haowen owned 23% of the Wen Corporations shares and was also the CEO. Since it was an acceptable amount, it was only a matter of time before they approved of it.
There was no need for her to offend the shareholders.
Wen Haowen gradually began to understand Ning Shuqians plans. "I agree with Director Nings suggestion."
All the directors agreed.
After all, the shareholders had already approved of the entertainment city and regarded it highly too. They naturally knew the pros and cons and wouldnt dare to be hasty with it.
Wen Haowen smiled and said, "Since everyone agrees, how about we set a time frame of three days? Three days should be enough for you guys to consider!"
Three days was a reasonable amount of time and hence, the directors did not have a reason to oppose to it.
Wen Haowen was not worried about creating unnecessary trouble. After all, the entertainment city project had been approved by the shareholders and the amount of 300 million yuan would definitely have to be invested in the project.
In that case, what was the harm in waiting for three days?
At last, everyone gave in to Wen Haowens decision.
Wen Xinya had expected all of that to happen. She urged Secretary Cao to speak, precisely because she wanted to delay the approval of the funds. She could not let Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian compel the directors into approving the fund.
She still had three days to prevent Ning Shuqian and Wen Haowen from getting what they wanted.
She was using the tactic of stalling time.
The meeting came to an end.
The directors left the conference room.
Wen Xinya and Ning Shuqian were the only ones left.
Ning Shuqian appeared sultry in her red shirt and black suit while Wen Xinya looked resplendent and beautiful in her almond-colored suit.
Ning Shuqian smiled coquettishly and exclaimed, "Xinya, they all say that the tables will turn and times will change. You probably didnt expect that Id have such a glorious time, did you!?!"
She sounded as if she was just joking, though her gaze was absolutely provoking.
Wen Xinya smirked coldly and her face was just like melted ice, a little warm but icy at the same time. "Ning Shuqian, dont be so conceited as to think that youre already the winner. The game hasnt ended yet. I have more than enough time to play this game with you."
Wen Xinya gently knocked her neatly trimmed nails against the desk in the conference room. Although her pink nail lacquer was not particularly eye-catching, they made her fingers look exceptionally long and clean.
Ning Shuqian laughed seductively and retorted. "Well said, theres still a long way for us to go. Ill play with you slowly and let you taste defeat."
Now that she had officially become a member of the board, she would definitely be facing Wen Xinya a lot more in the future. Hence, she was no longer afraid of creating unnecessary trouble and decided to stop tolerating Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya sneered. "Dont be too quick to speak. Be careful not to bite your tongue."
No one could tell who the dominant one was and who the winner would be.
Ning Shuqian said smilingly, "Well find out very soon."
It was impossible for Wen Xinya to stop the entertainment city project from proceeding, and she had no choice but to bring up the idea of a separate company. Although that resulted in a lot of hassles and issues for the entertainment city, it was not exactly a threat to Ning Shuqian. Once the funds were approved, Wen Xinya would have no way of stopping them.
Wen Xinya said calmly, "Lets wait and see, then."
Ning Shuqian was just feeling proud and arrogant because her scheme had worked. Otherwise, she wouldnt have had the guts to say those things to Wen Xinya.
Ning Shuqian grabbed the document in front of her and glanced at Wen Xinya calmly before turning around to leave.
Wen Xinya suddenly interjected. "Miss Ning, oops, I mean, Director Ning! Please dont forget to drop by the Wen Family mansion and apologize to my Grandpa. If the directors find out that you didnt stick to your promise, theyre going to have a bad impression of you."
Wen Xinya did not mind at all. She was just trying to remind Ning Shuqian that she couldnt throw her weight around the Wen Corporation just because she could manipulate Wen Haowen. After all, Old Mr. Wen was the real person in charge.
As expected, Ning Shuqians body stiffened and she stopped in her tracks. She took a deep breath before opening the door of the conference room and striding away, her heels producing loud and crisp noises.
