“What? Don’t you wanna try it?” Hai Su asked with a frown: “As our family member, it is your mission to serve the family. We have lost 8 million dollars in the first half of the year when you’re in charge. This is to make up for the loss. Otherwise, according to the regulations, you will be downgraded.”
Mary Su bit her lips tightly and didn’t know what to do. She never thought Hai would threaten her with this. Yes, the company did make a loss of $8 million under her leadership. Still, over the years, she has earned more than 80 million dollars for the company.
The old lady waved her hands and said: “Hai’s right, if you make a mistake, you’ll be punished; if you have done something well, you’ll be rewarded instead. Since you were running the company and we lost 8 million dollars, this time, you should go to Huanyu Group to discuss the cooperation as the compensation for your mistake.”
After saying this, the old lady glanced around at the crowd. She added, “I hope you can remember our family’s rules of reward and punishment firmly.”
“Yes!” People all agreed.
“Well, you can leave now.”
Her voice just fell, all the people in the scene have stood up. They were finally relieved that they were not the ones being chosen.
They all looked at Mary sympathetically; if the cooperation didn’t succeed, Family Su would be downgraded for sure. At that time, not only the family’s dividends halved, even Mary’s own position will fall from the company’s chief executive to director.
On the way home, Mary was so upset, cooperating with Huanyu Group is an impossible task, how could she do that?
After thinking for a long time, she hasn’t come up with a good idea, so she just gave up. She called to invite her best friend, Mina Li. The two girls were chatting on the sofa. After chatting for a while, Mary felt much better. “Mina, thank you for encouraging me,” Mary gently lifted the wine glass in her hands to Mina’s glass and said.
Mina took a sip of red wine and said with a smile: “We are the best friends, don’t say thanks.”
“By the way, Mary, where’s your husband?”
“He went out early in the morning and hasn’t come back yet.”
“I admire you so much, Mary,” Mina shook the wine in her glass and said, “You can spend two years with such a worthless man. If it were me, I would have divorced long ago.”
“Forget about everything else, now your company is in a crisis. As your husband, he didn’t even take out one or two million dollars. But he didn’t even ask. That’s too much,” Mina said.
Looking at Mina being indignant, Mary didn’t speak, she just crouched on the sofa and poured the wine into her mouth.
Just then, the door opened. Kris Chen was carrying a snakeskin bag in his hand. He looked as if he had just been pulled out from the water.
It should all be blamed for Rui Liu, who destroyed the car, otherwise, he will not need to ride a shared bike to go home.
This weather was also strange, it suddenly rained, and Kris’s clothes were all wet.
“Speak of the devil, and he will appear,” Mina gave him a look of disgust. Without giving her a glimpse, Kris threw his snakeskin bag onto the sofa and ran upstairs to take a bath.
At that moment, Jane Tang, who heard the noise, came out of her bedroom and said, “Did that failure come back? Where’s he?”
“Auntie, he’s upstairs,” Mina replied.
“Well, he’s got the face to come back!” Jane sat on the sofa with a cold face, waiting for Kris to come downstairs.
Just when Jane was already out of patience, Kris finally came down with clean clothes.
“Kris, get your ass in here!” Said Jane, sitting on the sofa with her legs crossed.
“Mom… Auntie, what do you want?” Thinking of Jane would not allow him to call her “Mom,” he changed the word.
Jane glared at Kris and coldly said, “You don’t care about what I said now, do you? Do you still regard me as your mother-in-law? I asked you to apologize to Hai Su at the annual meeting, but how dare you turn around and walk away! Since you have left, why did you come back again?”
Kris took a deep breath, he didn’t care about it. She was so angry that it was useless to say anything.
Seeing his cheeky smile and indifferent expression, Jane was even angrier. Pointing at the wet floor and the snakeskin bag on the sofa, she said, “Did you see how messy you have made the house? Why don’t you mop it up and throw that dirty bag into the dustbin?”
Throw the bag into the dustbin?
Kris walked up to Mary and said: “Darling, about your company’s problems, I can…” Before he finished his words, Mina sneered and interrupted him: “Oh, I’m surprised that you still care about Mary’s company. I thought your conscience had been eaten by the dog. You eat her food, use her things, if you’re really a grateful man, just find a way to help her, don’t make things worse… Don’t you know how stressful she is?”
“It’s all right, Mina, I’m fine,” Mary put down the wine glass, rubbed the sore temples.
No matter how useless Kris is, he is Mary’s legal husband. She can scold him as long as she wants, but she doesn’t like others to do that.
“Honey, you are being too kind, that’s why he crossed the line again and again,” Mina hugged Mary and said: “I really felt sorry for you, silly girl. In my opinion, you are a couple in name only, you should get divorced and find another man that you can rely on as soon as possible.”
Kris couldn’t bear someone encouraged his wife to divorce him. No man can bear that.
He stared at Mina and said, “How do you know I can’t help my wife?”
“You?” Mina sneered and neglected his words.
“I remembered a few days ago, you have said that you would call me dad if I can take out $8 million,” Kris looked at Mina and said, “I wonder if you still remember what you said”.
“Yes, I did,” Mina smiled in disdain, she said: “If you can do that, I can call you dad. But if you can’t, you should let go of Mary and divorce her.”
“Mina…” Mary pulled Mina away. Eight million dollars is a large amount of money. She just gives Kris 200 dollars every day. How can he take out so much money?
“Hehe, good,” Kris smiled, went over, took the snakeskin bag from the sofa in his hand, and said, “but this time, you may be disappointed”. With that, he turned the bag over.
The contents of the bag were poured out.
At that moment, Mina opened her eyes wide and her mouth, shocked by the scene in front of her.
The room was silent except for the rapid breathing of three women.
Pile after pile of money on the table was like a hammer striking their heart, which made them unable to say anything.
“The money… A lot of money!” At this time, Jane came over, she looked very surprised.
“This… Where did you get the money?”
Mary looked at the scattered bundles of money on the ground, she was in great shock and didn’t know what to say. Looking at the scene before her, Mina was upset, the bright red color of the money made her feel bitter. She felt her legs were shaking unconsciously.
So much money. They didn’t count how much money there is, but there are at least two or three million dollars on the table.
She had never seen so much money in front of her, and the visual impact was too strong for her, she couldn’t find the words to describe her feelings right now.
“Here is 3 million dollars. I didn’t make an appointment in advance, so I can only withdraw 3 million dollars temporarily. I will transfer the remaining 5 million dollars to you online.” Then Kris took out his emulational cell phone that he had spent 300 dollars on the second-hand market.
“It’s kind of slow. Wait a minute,” Kris felt a little embarrassed. This emulational cell phone was running at turtle speed, he needs to get a new one tomorrow.
After a few minutes, he put down his phone and said, “Okay, I’ve transferred the remaining money to you. You’ll get the money in a minute.”
His words just fell, Mary’s mobile phone sounded, she subconsciously took out the phone to see.
“Distinguished VIP user, your bank card has received a transfer of 5,000,000 dollars.”
