“Heh! I knew you’d reject me! Forget it; the deal is off!”
Mu Yazhe suddenly continued. “Although I’m no longer the Mu family’s head, I still possess Huanyu’s shares. It’s no problem for me to produce a string of posts overnight. The mayor’s unmarried daughter, disobeying ethics, got herself pregnant. Do you think this headline is explosive enough?”
Those few words were enough to make Song Zhengguo shudder in fright.
The young chap let out an evil smile and got up.
He held him back immediately. “You can’t do that! Can you really bear to destroy Enya like that?”
“Why can’t I?” retorted the other unaffectedly.
His eyes twitched harshly as he took in the young man’s insolent and contemptuous expression. Just as he was about to explode in anger, he turned and glanced at his disappointing daughter, who was seated in the car beside them. Only then did he manage to rein in his unhappiness as he patiently questioned, “When do you want the money?”
“It’s too rushed. I might be unable to get it on time!”
Mu Yazhe smiled icily. “There’s a limit to my patience. I’ll give you three days. Either give me ten million or put the rights to that land under my name.”
With that, he slapped the older man’s hand away expressionlessly and swiftly detached himself from the car.
Song Zhengguo gritted his teeth in anger. He felt as if he had been cut open by the chap until he was bleeding. In just a few minutes, a piece of land which was worth hundreds of millions landed in that rascal’s palm. How could he not be furious?!
On their way home, Yun Shishi inquired to her husband why Song Zhengguo had asked a private conversation with him. Mu Yazhe relayed their entire talk to her.
The woman was then so shocked her mouth hung agape.
“Isn’t this blackmail?!” she spat, completely flabbergasted.
The man shoved a false argument down her throat. “That land was obtained based on my capability. It had nothing to do with blackmail!”
She stuck out her tongue. Like hell that wasn’t blackmail!
However, Mu Yazhe was indeed capable to have aimed at Song Zhengguo’s weak spot. If Song Enya’s pregnancy were to get out, it would have a huge impact on the older man’s prospects in the political arena.
On one hand, it was a project worth hundreds of million; on the other hand, it was his career over a decade in line. The older man naturally knew how to weigh the pros and cons, so he decided to make this compromise.
Although this was just a small compromise, this deal was a huge loss to him!
In the end, it did not matter if he gave the young chap ten million or that piece of land as it was all about resolving a desperate situation then.
Right now, the Shengyu Financial Group’s funding was tight. Without any capital to invest, many projects had to be stopped. Their financial loss was incremental by the second.
Perhaps Mu Yazhe still did not hold this deficit with much regard, but if it continued to be at a standstill, their financial loss would only get bigger.
This was why he did not stop Song Enya when she underwent the IVF procedure overseas. It was so he could have a trick up his sleeve when he needed it.
The corners of Yun Shishi’s lips twitched.
This man was a lot more two-faced than she imagined.
Long before, he had actually already readied some countermeasures for any future predicaments.
She could only say that his ambition was unimaginable!
Song Zhengguo was probably suffering from pent-up frustration on his way back right now.
While he hated how disappointing Song Enya was, he also resented how greedy Mu Yazhe was. He was probably about to suffer from a heart attack, was he not?!
