The shareholders in the conference room of the Han Corporation were in an uproar. However, news from the Qiao Corporation did not seem to be very good either.
The news about Han Wanling kidnapping Qiao Ximin had once again been exposed. The press conference where Qiao Ximin had stood up to clarify exactly what had happened just a few days ago had become very good evidence that the Qiao family had been slapping their shareholders in their faces also.
This hurt not only Qiao Ximin, but also the entire Qiao Corporation. What made Qiao Dehao even more worried about this situation was that the election for the big four wealthiest families was going to be held the day after tomorrow. If the Qiao family wasn’t selected as one of the big four wealthiest families because of this matter, not only would they not be able to explain what had happened to the Prime Minister, but the news that would be released would also embarrass the family.
Qiao Ximin had initially used the excuse of saying that she had been threatened by the Han Corporation, but a few media outlets had received insider information that stated that the Han Corporation had given the Qiao Corporation a large sum of money and several enormous projects. As the old saying goes, there is no smoke without fire. Qiao Ximin thought she could play the part of the victim, but after all these substantiated media reports, it became pretty clear that she had taken part in bribery.
This was a classic case of her having to eat her words and admit to lying, and she was immediately charged with false reporting. Not only was it embarrassing for the family and herself, but she had also been invited to the police station for questioning in order to set the record straight.
Qiao Ximin had never imagined that she would find herself in such a sorry state in her whole life. The truth about what she had done was laid out in front of the public, and she couldn’t even use the excuse that she actually had been kidnapped to gain a little sympathy.
As soon as Qiao Ximin stepped out of the door of the police station, all the reporters outside waiting chased after her as if they were hounds who had caught the scent of their prey.
Han Wanling had already been sent to jail. Qiao Ximin had originally been the victim, and extorting a sum of money from the Han Corporation had been what she considered a win-win situation. Now, neither party was going to get away with it.
On the road outside the police station, Yun Xi rolled down the car window and watched Qiao Ximin, who was being chased and accosted by a group of reporters. Even though she was wearing sunglasses, they could not hide the sorry state she was currently in. Where were her previous elegance and pride?
Yun Xi sneered and rolled up the car window. Asking Team Leader A to please take her back to school, she turned away from the commotion outside the window. Qiao Ximin, this was just the beginning. There’s still a great show waiting for you!
In the laboratory, Yun Xi had just finished a few experiments and was washing her hands before leaving. The moment she left, she saw Zhao Yumo, who was waiting outside for her, holding a hot water bottle.
Seeing her frozen red face, Yun Xi couldn’t help but laugh. “Why didn’t you come inside? It’s freezing out here.”
“After watching you perform dissection one time, I will never step into your lab again. I feel better standing outside.”
Not everyone could do this line of work.
“If you want to see me in the future, remember to call me. Don’t just stand out there like an idiot waiting in the cold!” Yun Xi grabbed her arm and pulled her out of the building block. Together, they headed for the hotpot restaurant where they had decided to eat to warm themselves up.
“Is the news true? Han Wanling went to jail again? Isn’t she headed for disaster? They’d just released that press conference a few days ago, and it gained so much publicity. Now, this is great! Their faces must hurt from the embarrassment. I feel so bad for them, ha, ha,
“If she wants her life to become a disaster, I won’t stop her.” Yun Xi shrugged her shoulders with an innocent expression. She smiled and narrowed her eyes. Now that Han Wanling had been arrested, she was naturally in a good mood. “Speaking of which, Qiao Ximin probably isn’t doing much better because of this. It really serves them right for colluding in that stupid lie.
Zhao Yumo suddenly remembered the election the day after tomorrow. “If the Qiao family is implicated, will it affect the election?”
“Even if this does affect the Qiao family, victory is within their grasp. After all, Han Wanling’s case is much more serious, and the Han family seriously has no way to protect themselves now.”
