Chapter 1456: Huo Siqian, What Are You Trying to Do? (7)
But the funny thing was, since when did Mian become his? Qin Chu and Huo Mian began dating in high school, and that was none of Huo Siqian's business.
How thick-faced was he?
Upon hearing silence from the other end, Mayor Song thought Qin Chu was contemplating the pros and cons, so he continued to persuade him, "Huo Siqian is a man with many measures, and I'm sure he's the one behind this incident. I know Zhang Liangui, he's not brave enough to do something like this. Huo Siqian must've manipulated him. Chu, although my daughter is his wife, I will never favor him. Rather, I've known you since you were a baby and watched you grow up. You're like a son to me, so I would never deceive you. Listen to me, the two of you shouldn't attack each other because of this, just give back whatever you stole from him and end this chaos＃ or else, the city's development will be steered off track＃ Today, the provincial government called and scolded me. I'm retiring in five years and want to finish my tenure peacefully, can you understand where I'm coming from?"
"Uncle Song＃ I can, but first＃ what he was referring to didn't belong to him in the first place and second＃ whatever he values the most is more important to me than my life＃ Do you really think I'd give my life to him?"
Upon hearing this, Mayor Song fell silent＃ He didn't know how to respond...
"Uncle Song, I know you're trying to help me＃ if it were anything else, I would've let him have his way. After all, I don't want to fight him either＃ we're not children anymore and I'm betting my entire family fortune on this＃ but I can't comprise this time, no matter what. I'm willing to give him all my money and power and even my life, but I won't compromise."
Qin Chu was determined; to him, Huo Mian was his life. No one could take her from him, and Huo Siqian was no different＃
"Alright, I understand then. Don't panic, let me find out what's happening once I get home and we'll think of a countermeasure."
After hanging up, Qin Chu fell silent＃
Mayor Song didn't say it directly, but Qin Chu knew that he couldn't stop Huo Siqian. If the latter were really afraid of the mayor, he wouldn't have done something so outrageous in the first place.
When Huo Siqian decided to pit 13 real estate companies against Qin Chu, he no longer cared about anyone or anything.
Therefore, Mayor Song probably meant nothing to him, meaning that him coming back to C City wasn't going to make a difference＃
All GK could do was observe the situation and determine how long they could stay in this battle.
- Three days later -
GK couldn't sit still anymore, and Qin Chu decided to call an emergency meeting to activate the company's backup funds.
GK's refusal to lower prices led to reputation loss and public indignation, which in turn caused the company's stocks to dip down to an all-time low.
The company had just recovered from the last crash, so this time it suffered even more losses, losing billions in three days＃
If it was about the money, Qin Chu wouldn't panic as much. However, if its stocks continued dropping, the company would go from profit-making to debt-owing.
"Tell all the real estate project managers to lower our prices to 4,000 yuan per square meter."
"Sir, if we do that, we're going to lose a lot of money," Yang reminded him.
