Chapter 1455: Huo Siqian, What Are You Trying to Do? (6)
"I'm sorry, President Huo already left."
"He left?" Su Yu was doubtful, and the receptionist nodded. "Yes, he left after the afternoon meeting. He's probably at home, you can look for him there."
"What a coward＃" Su Yu clenched his fists; did Huo Siqian ignore his warnings about not hurting Huo Mian?
Him shamelessly setting GK up must've made Huo Mian more anxious than ever. Su Yu almost exploded with fury when he saw netizens cursing at Huo Mian on Weibo. He even registered a new account to defend her, but it was useless.
Public opinion obviously worked against Qin Chu and Huo Mian＃
- Huo Siqian's private mansion -
Huo Siqian, wearing nothing but a robe, leaned nonchalantly against his poolside chair when his phone suddenly rang.
"What happened, who told you all to lower real estate prices? This is malicious competition!" Mayor Song demanded angrily.
"What's so bad about benefiting the people? Why would you be mad about that?"
"Stop trying to fool me. You're trying to drag Qin Chu down, aren't you?" Mayor Song had been a government official for years and therefore immediately realized who Huo Siqian was trying to deal with. Right now, Qin Chu was in an extremely awkward position＃ he was in deep trouble.
"Smart＃" Huo Siqian admitted.
"Why would you do something like that? What did he ever do to you? I've known Qin Chu since he was a baby and I'm close friends with his dad, you shouldn't have done this to him."
"You're hilarious＃ that's between you and him, what does any of that have to do with me?" Huo Siqian chuckled.
"I gave you that piece of land you wanted and Qin Chu didn't say anything＃ why would you set him up like this?"
"I'm sorry, Father-in-Law, I don't think you understand the situation. If Qin Chu didn't take the thing I treasured the most away from me, I wouldn't have done this to him."
"What thing?" Mayor Song asked.
"You＃ should go ask him about it. Oh, if you persuade him to give it back to me, I can consider letting him off the hook＃"
"You've got to be kidding me. Stop what you're doing right now, this is more than a personal grudge. You basically sank our city's real estate industry, everything's in turmoil right now＃"
"You're the mayor, shouldn't that be your problem to deal with?" Huo Siqian sneered.
"Huo Siqian, you＃"
Before Mayor Song finished his sentence, Huo Siqian hung up; right now, he didn't have the time to quibble with this old man.
Mayor Song wasn't in the city; he was anxious but couldn't do anything about it. Therefore, he decided to call Qin Chu, who had just finished up a meeting where they discussed possible countermeasures for tomorrow.
"Chu＃ are you busy?"
"Mhm, I just finished up a meeting."
"I'm at a conference in F City and won't be back until the day afternoon tomorrow＃ I heard about what happened at home. Things are really serious, aren't they? I called Huo Siqian but he seems dead set on taking you down."
"I know," Qin Chu replied calmly.
"Chu, what did you steal from Huo Siqian?"
"What?" Qin Chu frowned.
"When I called him, he said you stole something from him he really values. If it's not anything important, just give it back to him, will you? He sometimes acts like a crazy dog who does whatever he wants to do without thinking about others＃ you shouldn't attack him head-on. Always offend the gentleman, not the petty person."
Qin Chu remained silent; he understood what Huo Siqian meant 每 the thing he values, he was referring to Mian, wasn't he?
