Chapter 639: Why Did He Choose Her? (1)
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Appearing all too ready to listen, Xu Weilai urged, “a.s.sistant Lin, you know that I’ve been covering the news all these years. I really know nuts about corporate politics. Why don’t you…explain it clearly to me and give me some pointers?”
“…” a.s.sistant Lin was momentarily at a loss for words.
Xu Weilai had always been smart and while she had never worked in a corporate setting, she was a media personality and thus, was neither silly nor dreamy. a.s.sistant Lin never expected Xu Weilai to be so direct with him about her lack of knowledge about the politics in the company.
When Xu Weilai noticed his reticence, reached over and grabbed hold of his arm to pull him back into the pantry. After settling him down on the chair, she quickly poured a gla.s.s of water and placed it down in front of him.
She then grabbed herself a chair and sat down before she rested her elbows on the table and propped her cheeks on her palms. As she stared fixedly at a.s.sistant Lin with her dark pupils, asked, “a.s.sistant Lin, let me summarize the situation. Do correct me if I’m wrong.”
Raising up a finger, she asked, “You mentioned that my boss and Gu Yu are on opposing teams. In other words, they’re compet.i.tors, aren’t they?”
a.s.sistant Lin was rather confused by her actions and subconsciously replied, “Um… Yes.”
“That’s strange…” Xu Weilai remarked as she blinked her eyes and frowned. She appeared quite baffled as she challenged, “My boss is already the Vice President and his position is way above everyone else. This is the Gu Corporation that we’re talking about and so, Gu Yu would undoubtedly be the greatest shareholder. It’s impossible for my boss to compete with him for the position as the CEO. It’s an impossible feat since he does not own more shares than Gu Yu…”
After a brief pause, Xu Weilai’s gaze sharpened and she resumed, “Unless… There’s not only a manpower shuffle in the Gu Corporation’s upper management team but also a change in the distribution of shares?”
When a.s.sistant Lin heard what Xu Weilai had described earlier on, he grabbed the gla.s.s of water and took a stiff sip. But before he could swallow it, heard the continuation to what Xu Weilai wanted to say and he immediately choked on his water, drawing out a bout of violent coughing.
“Hey, are you alright?” Xu Weilai asked and quickly reached over to pat his back.
“I… I… I… Ehem, I’m fine!” he a.s.sured as he continued to cough away.
a.s.sistant Lin shook his head before he suddenly bolted to his feet and avoided Xu Weilai’s hand. He even staggered back and his eyes were evasive when he stuttered, “I… I have to get back to work. Make… Make yourself at home.”
After throwing out these words, he quickly turned and left without giving Xu Weilai a chance to reply.
Xu Weilai’s lips curled up into a smile as she watched his receding figure. Judging from how strong a.s.sistant Lin’s reaction was, it was obvious that something was up and that he knew something about it. Xu Weilai could tell that what she had said earlier might have been partially true.
Although she was still unable to determine the actual situation, she felt certain that there must be a serious problem within the Gu Corporation and that her boss was an invader who was sent over by the Zuo Corporation.
That would explain the big reaction that a.s.sistant Lin had when he heard that she was Zuo An’s secretary.
Fortunately, his reaction also provided some leads for Xu Weilai, who would otherwise be clueless. However, she couldn’t help but wonder if her boss had picked her to be his secretary out of true admiration for her abilities or other ulterior motives.
She even began to question if everything was already planned right from the start when her boss chose to show her his true face.
