My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 233 Mr. Ye, Please Forgive Him (1)
Zhenyun Chu’s eyes darkened a bit. “Mr. Ye, I know that you have suffered great losses. But you can’t just blame Xuan Chu for this. Your wife is also involved.” He sighed.
“If Xuan hadn’t suddenly come to the city to testify that my wife was your daughter Yan Chu, I could have confirmed that she is Venus. So she would not be missing now.” Kerry said angrily. He was trying his best to control his anger, but when it came to Venus, he couldn’t calm down.
Zhenyun Chu was unable to defend himself against his questioning.
“I’m curious if you really didn’t know that your son was doing these things behind your back.”
Zhenyun shook his head very firmly, “I don’t know. I basically handed over all the affairs of the company to him, so I don’t know what has happened to the company over the years.”
“That means that you also don’t know who ordered Xuan to do all this?” asked Kerry.
“Ye, if I had knew that, I would never have allowed him to do such a thing.” Zhenyun spoke with deep remorse.
Kerry snorted, “Why do I believe your words?”
“Mr. Ye, I am Xuan’s father. I wish him well more than anyone else. Now that he is lying in bed, I want to find out who’s behind him as much as you do,” said Zhenyun, with a grim look on his face. He now hated Gavin. Chu was his only son. He had high hopes for him, so he would never allow his son to make the same mistake again.
Kerry raised his eyebrows at him, “Doesn’t Mr. Chu have any thoughts about the treasure?”
Zhenyun smiled, “Mr. Ye, I’m sixty-three years old now, and I won’t be able to live long in this world. Although the Chu family is not very rich now, it has achieved some success. I don’t have to ruin my Chu family for that treasure?”
Hearing this, Kerry finally believed him a bit. The expression on his face softened a lot, “I can no longer pursue what Xuan did, but you have to promise me one condition.”
“After he wakes up, he must tell me who is behind him.”
“Mr. Ye, even if you don’t make this condition, I will do so. As soon as Xuan wakes up, I’ll make sure he tells me all the information about that person.” Zhenyun said.
Kerry nodded, “Fine, then I’ll forgive him.”
“Thank you.” Zhenyun stood up. “I should go now. I hope that in the future MK will have another chance to work with Yehuang Group.” He extended his hand
Kerry shook his hand lightly and then said, “I also look forward to our next cooperation.”
Zhenyun left with his secretary and bodyguards. Kerry watched his back, scanning the papers on the table, then he asked Henry, who was beside him, “Am I being too kind to the Chu family?”
In the past, he would have taken revenge on those who harmed him, but now he had gone soft on those who harmed him.
“Sir, you are doing this for the good of Venus and your child.” Henry said, “You’re doing the right thing.”
Kerry was somewhat relieved, “I hope so.”
Ever since he had Venus and the baby, Kerry had worries about whatever he did. Whenever he would set someone up, he would wonder if they would get back at Venus and his child.
In the afternoon, Kerry had a meeting with nearly five hundred people at the amusement park, including cleaners and restaurant cooks.
“Hello, everyone, I’m Kerry from the Yehuang Group. Tomorrow the amusement park will open, and I want you all to be enthusiastic about your work and welcome the customers. If something goes wrong in any part of the process, I will hold the people responsible for it. On the other hand, if our profits exceed 20 million tomorrow and during the National Day that follows, everyone’s bonus will be doubled this month.”
As soon as he finished speaking, there was a round of applause. It’s true that Money is the only thing that can inspire the passion of employees.
Kerry, who was resting in the hotel, received a special phone call. It was from the City Hall. After receiving the call, Kerry had a smile on his face that hadn’t been seen for days.
“Thank you, I’ll be ready tomorrow.” Kerry said, and hung up the phone.
Secretary Liu knocked on the door, holding a freshly cut fruit plate, “Mr. Ye, there are some fruits.”
Throwing the phone to the side, Kerry instructed, “All the important official leaders of the city will attend the opening ceremony tomorrow. There’s also a provincial leader coming too. You will go and inform the relevant people to make arrangements to receive them.”
“Really? It is something that rarely happens in Sky City.” Secretary Liu said in surprise.
“The two projects that the mayor promised me were all given to Mu’s Group. This is their compensation for me.” Kerry glanced at him and said.
“What you said makes sense.” Secretary Liu said. “Then I’ll go and arrange it now.”
A few minutes after Secretary Liu left, one of the vice presidents in charge of the amusement park project strode in, “Mr. Ye, we’ve already sold more than 20,000 tickets online.”
This was really good news. The ticket price was 280 yuan. The amusement park would open tomorrow, so the tickets were discounted by 20%. Naturally more people would buy them.
“The amusement park will be owned by Yeghuang Group in the future.” said Kerry calmly.
The vice president opened his eyes wide, thinking he had heard wrong, “How is this possible? Our company’s current liquidity can’t buy so many shares.”
“I didn’t buy it. They gave me their shares. As to why they did it, you don’t need to know the reason,” Kerry said bluntly.
The vice president was even more surprised, then excited. “Mr. Ye, you’re amazing. I’m going to have a drink to celebrate this.” The vice president said.
“Don’t get drunk. There’s a lot to do at the amusement park tomorrow.” Kerry said.
“Don’t worry. I understand.” The vice president then walked out happily.
As the room quieted down, Kerry couldn’t help but think of Venus, worrying that she was somewhere suffering. The thought of it made him uneasy.
He realized now that he could only be happy if he shared his happiness with his loved ones. If Venus and his baby were with him right now, he would be happy. Even if he was tired, he would feel energized. But now, he felt there was a boulder on his heart.
In a villa on the east side of Sky City, Tianye Mu sat on the sofa and watched TV. Xiran Xiao was lying on the sofa, with her head on Tianye’s lap. Tianye was gently massaging her head. The TV was reporting the news of the opening of the amusement park tomorrow.
“Kerry finally comes back.” Tianyr said softly.
“The amusement park will open tomorrow; of course he comes back.” Xiran was flipping through a geography magazine.
“Why isn’t that friend of yours back?”
Xiran put the magazine down and said with a frown, “I’m also wondering why Yan didn’t come back. It’s supposed to be MK Company’s project, so why haven’t I hear anything about her in the news?”
“Did Kerry buy out MK’s stake in the company?” Tianye speculated.
“It will take at least 100 million to buy the other half of the shares. But I don’t think Kerry has that much money right now. Even if he had the money to buy it, he would need to get MK’s approval.” Xiran said.
“You’re right. If Mk won’t sell shares to him, there’s nothing he can do about it.” Tianye said.
“Do you want to go to the amusement park tomorrow?” Tianye bowed his head and asked gently.
“I would love to go. But there will be a lot of people at the amusement park tomorrow. Let’s go there in a few days.”
“After a few days later, the National Day will come, and there will only be more people.” Tianye smiled.
Xiran thought about it and said, “Then let’s go tomorrow. Then I’ll ask Kerry where Yan is going.”
“Ok, we’ll go there tomorrow.”
On September 30th, the weather was clear and the sun was shining brightly.
The amusement park was as crowded as it was on New Year’s Day. The opening ceremony officially started at nine o’clock. At this time there was a long line of ticket buyers at the entrance. This year’s hottest rock band was performing on the stage.
“Mr. Ye, Mr. Zhang and the others will be here soon,” said Secretary Liu in a hurry.
“Let’s go greet them.” Kerry walked toward the door with all of Yehuang Group’s top executives.
Along with the municipal party secretary, there were seven or eight other officals, including the deputy mayor, and the director of the culture bureau, and of course the highest ranking one was the vice governor invited by Mr. Zhang.
Kerry greeted them separately and let them take a break first.
Mr. Zhang walked beside him and whispered, “Mr. Quan is here to inspect the city’s cultural and entertainment projects, so he won’t be on stage for the opening ceremony of the amusement park later.”
“Okay, I got it.” Kerry said.
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 233 Mr. Ye, Please Forgive Him (2)
Kerry knew he wasn’t in a high enough position to have the vice governor of a province cut the ribbon for the opening ceremony of his amusement park, but having the mayor cut the ribbon for it was enough.
“I heard this amusement park is a joint venture between you and a compatriot from Hong Kong. Why haven’t I met any of their people?” Qidong Zhang, the mayor, was puzzled.
“MK is in trouble, so I bought all their shares.” Kerry said.
Mr. Zhang looked at him with a bit of appreciation in his eyes, “You did a good job. You are really capable.”
“Thank you. I’m flattered.” Kerry said with a smile on his face.
“Remember to pay your taxes on time and in full. The city’s revenue will mainly depend on the big enterprises.” Then Mr. Zhang teased.
Kerry smiled, “Yes, this is the obligation of our enterprises.”
Mr. Zhang nodded, patted him on the shoulder, and quickly walked forward to accompany the vice governor of a province.
At nine o’clock, the opening ceremony officially began.
After the mayor and other government officials of Sky City appeared on the stage, the scene was much quieter. The media’s cameras were all aimed at them.
Qidong Zhang, the city’s mayor, was usually a low-key person and a practical leader. His performance during the city’s earthquake made a good impression on the public. He seldom participated in such corporate events, so his visit to cut the ribbon for the amusement park was really unexpected.
After the host introduced the guests, Kerry began his opening speech, “Hello, I’m the President of Yehuang Group. Welcome to the opening ceremony of the amusement park …….”
In the crowded crowd, Xiran Xiao and Tianye Mu were distantly looking at them, wearing sunglasses and smiling very faintly.
“Kerry has the face to invite the mayor to cut the ribbon for the opening.” Xiran laughed.
Tianye hugged her shoulder to avoid her being bumped into and explained, “Kerry must be very angry that I took away so many of his projects. I guess the mayor was afraid that his tax revenue would be reduced if Kerry moved his business out of Sky City because of this, so he gave him face to cut the ribbon for him.”
“You’re right. I’m out of S City for most of the year, but there’s still a stack of government invitations sitting in my office at the end of the year, but I’ve never been to one of those parties. I hate that kind of occasion.”
“You won’t have to attend these occasions you don’t like in the future either. I will help you.” Tianye lowered her head and kissed her earlobe, then whispered.
Xiran smiled, “Thank you. I know you’re the best at handling these things.”
In terms of wealth, Xiran was more than twice as wealthy as Tianye, but Tianye did not feel inferior to Xiran at all because of her wealth. Their affection for each other came from the heart. They treated each other as equals, so they got along very well.
After Kerry’s speech, the applause was thunderous. Xiran had to admit that Kerry sometimes looked sinister, but he was very talented.
Then the guests began to cut the ribbon. Numerous colored balloons were released into the sky, and the music was heard simultaneously. The amusement park officially opened now. As Kerry stood on the stage watching the crowds pouring in, especially the men holding their children, Kerry grew sad.
He accompanied the city officials on a tour of the amusement park. The vice governor said with satisfaction, “This should be the first large amusement park in our province. It’s very nice. But it must be well secured, and nothing must go wrong.”
“Don’t worry. I’ve carefully checked all the items and there will never be any accidents.”
After the city officials left, Kerry breathed a sigh of relief. After today, he could finally devote all his time and energy to finding Venus.
Soon, the empty amusement park became crowded.
Kerry made his way to the office area. As he passed the food court, he spotted a very familiar back in the distance. He stopped in his tracks, his heart beating faster.
As he watched the man walk forward, Kerry immediately picked up his pace and chased after him. But there were really too many tourists, and people kept coming out to block his path. He bumped into a little girl with a cotton candy in her hand. The cotton candy she had just bought fell to the ground.
“Mom, my cotton candy fell on the ground.” The little girl was about to cry.
Kerry had to stop and help the little girl up, “I’m sorry. I am in a hurry,” he said. He took a hundred out of his pocket and put it in the little girl’s hand, “You go buy another one, okay?”
“Why don’t you keep your eyes on the road when you’re walking?” The little girl’s mother patted the dust off the child and said angrily. “Haven’t you got eyes in your head?”
“I’m sorry.” Kerry apologized anxiously. When he looked up again, the man he had been chasing just now had disappeared.
The girl’s mother wanted to say something, but when she saw that the handsome man in front of her was Kerry, who had just cut the ribbon on the stage, she instantly softened her tone, “It’s okay. She is fine.”
Kerry nodded and then left.
“He looks handsome from afar, but up close he looks even more charming.” The woman said to herself.
“Mom, I want cotton candy.” The little girl said, holding up a hundred yuan.
“Okay, mommy will buy them for you.”
When he reached the food court, Kerry looked around again, but still couldn’t find him.
“Am I mistaken? I saw his back just now.” Kerry said to himself.
The last time Venus said she had seen Tianye, but Kerry didn’t believe her words.
“If you’re still alive, please come out. You can ask me to apologize or you can hit me. As long as you’re alive, Venus can be more at peace with the past.”
“Kerry.” a clear voice sounded behind him.
He turned around. Xiran was standing two meters away. She was dressed in comfortable casual clothes, holding a cup of milk tea, and her face was rosy.
“Xiran Xiao?” Kerry was extremely surprised.
“It seems that you’re so surprised that I came to your amusement park.”
“What are you doing here?” Kerry suddenly remembered the picture from the cruise ship, and then he looked around and asked, “Did you come here alone?”
Xiran said very frankly, “I was with my friend. But there were too many people and we got separated.”
Kerry was curious, “Friends? Do you need me to help you find your friend?”
“No, I’ll call him later.” said Xiran.
“Since you’re here, would you like to have lunch with me?”
Xiran didn’t reply.
“Is Yan back yet?” She went straight to the point. She came for this thing. Originally she wanted to call Kerry when she was leaving to ask about Yan, but she didn’t think she’d run into him here.
“She’s still abroad on vacation.” Kerry didn’t know how to explain this, so he lied.
Xiran was keenly aware that something was wrong from his expression. She spoke icily. “Kerry, you’re lying. Is something wrong with Yan?”
Kerry’s face also went cold, “Xiran Xiao, you’re thinking too much. It’s none of your business.”
“If Yan is really on vacation abroad, why can’t I get through to her at all? And she had been involved in the amusement park project, in which MK was a major shareholder, so why didn’t MK send someone to the opening ceremony. I know there must be something wrong with It.” Xiran‘s analysis was so reasonable that Kerry could not refute it.
There were a lot of people in the food court. They argued among the crowd, and soon they were attracting a lot of attention. There were even many people who took Xiran as Kerry’s girlfriend.
“Let’s go somewhere else to talk. They are too many people here.” Kerry’s tone softened a lot.
Of course, Xiran did not want to be surrounded by people, nodded and said, “Yes, where are we going?”
“The office area is over there. It’s quieter.” Kerry was about to turn around when he suddenly stopped and asked, “Get your friend and we can go there together.”
“No need. I’ll contact him later.”
“That’s not appropriate.”
Xiran raised her eyebrows, a little angry, “Why is it inappropriate? He’s my friend and it’s none of your business when I’ll contact him.” She just couldn’t stand Kerry, and always treated him badly.
Except for Venus, no woman dared to talk to him like that. The arrogant Xiran never gave him face. She embarrassed him several times in public, and what made Kerry angry was that he couldn’t do anything about her.
“What are you thinking about? Are you going to go or not?” Xiran asked with a frown.
“Yes, Madam. You’re woman, you’re the boss.” Kerry had to compromise.
Xiran snorted and walked straight forward.
A short distance away behind a stall selling rice noodles, Tianye watched their back. When Xiran turned the corner, she gestured with her hand behind her back for an ok sign. When Tianye saw it, he laughed.
Just now Tianye found a baked tofu store in front of him, so he asked Xiran to wait for him in front of the milk tea stall and he went to buy her some tofu. When he came back, he saw Kerry rushing around and seemed to be looking for someone else.
Tianye guessed that Kerry must have seen himself, so Xiran told Tianye to hide while she went directly to Kerry to ask him about Yan to divert Kerry’s attention.
A few minutes later, the two of them were sitting in Kerry’s office on the second floor. Secretary Liu brought in two cups of coffee and a plate of fruit. As he left, he took a glance at Xiran. “I’ve ever seen this woman somewhere before.” He thought.
Xiran placed her hands folded in her lap with an air of arrogance, “Now you can tell me what happened to her.”
“Yan has been kidnapped.” Kerry said calmly.
