1207 Are you Pei Ge...
Pei Ge successfully exacted her revenge on the Pei Family Real Estate and acquired large company shares.
After her return from New York, that real-estate company became the talk of the capital.
The fall-out between the father-daughter pair came as a surprise to many, but before they could react, the Pei family's real-estate company suffered an even greater blow.
At present, all its employees were feeling anxious.
Although Pei Zhenghui was the founder and CEO of the company, Pei Shishi was not just an empty figurehead.
Since this sole daughter of the CEO was no bimbo, she essentially could make major decisions within the company.
Therefore, she had her connections and loyal subordinates, too.
Soon after, two factions emerged in the company—one supported the daughter while another backed the father.
These two, who were once great business partners, fought it out in the company.
It was an ugly fight, too.
Precisely because they were fighting without any regard for each other's image, they soon became a laughingstock in the capital's circle.
Of course, the company's stock prices plummeted as a corollary of this family feud.
"Uncle Ying, are we able to acquire the company's shares yet?"
Sitting at the office table, Pei Shishi's greedy eyes remained fixed on the laptop's screen, which were showing the steadily declining prices of their company stocks.
"Shishi, this isn't the right time yet. The current price is still too high. With our limited capital, we're unable to acquire so much."
The middle-aged man sitting on the sofa turned to look at her.
This man, who was a shareholder, was Pei Family Real Estate's longest-serving employee.
"Is that so…"
She wanted to take the major shares from her father fast.
Unfortunately, other than giving her some shares on her eighteenth birthday and engagement, that old coot did not leave her with anything after marrying that woman!
Despite airing her father's dirty laundry, she still could not get the major shares from him!
"Shishi, do you have any other dirt on your father—something serious to secure your company leadership?"
Seeing her dark expression, the elderly man suggested this calmly.
Suddenly, the murder, which had happened twenty years ago, surfaced in her mind.
I can't reveal that matter!
Otherwise, the years my mother has spent in the prison would go to waste!
If I were to reveal that, wouldn't mom waste all the years she's in prison…
"We're already at this stage. You can't show any more mercy. I believe you know better than anyone what kind of a man your father is. Also…" The man paused and looked at her with deep eyes.
"He could do that to your mother, so you—"
She quickly cut him off at this point.
"What do you mean by that! What did he do to mom?"
"Don't you know that your father directly abandoned your mother in prison?"
She was stunned to hear that.
"How could that be…"
The elderly man snorted, saying in derision, "Hmph. What good is there to lie to you. I heard that your mom's life in the prison isn't easy…"
She completely went limp when she heard his words.
If this were true, then her mother should have been through so much pain!
Why?! Why had her mother not said anything?!
Oh… She could not visit her mother starting four years ago…
How could this be…
Back then, her father clearly promised her that even if he could not bail out her mother, he would ensure that she led a carefree life in prison…
"That's impossible! How could he do that? That's definitely impossible!"
If not, what about all the forbearance she had shown her father and that woman all these years?
"Shishi, calm down a bit. If you don't believe me, you can get someone to check your mother's condition in prison to know if what I'm saying is true or not."
Father, if you really didn't do what you promised, then don't blame me for being merciless!
Pei Ge, who was busy with work, picked up the call when she saw that it was from an internal line.
"Boss, Mr. Mu is here for you again."
She frowned slightly upon hearing that.
"Haven't I given an order before to say that I'm away if the person looking for me is—"
Before she could finish speaking, she heard a commotion outside.
"Sir, you can't go in there!"
Pei Ge raised a brow, knowing that the man, who was repeatedly denied entry before, could not be driven away easily this time.
"Boss, he forced his way inside."
She hung up and looked at the door to her office.
Soon after, Mu Heng appeared in her line of sight.
"Regina, why are you refusing to see me?"
He rushed in and questioned her.
"Boss, apologies; I didn't manage to stop…"
She calmly signaled her assistant out when she saw the latter looking at her worriedly.
With the assistant gone, only the two of them were left in the office.
"Mr. Mu, what do you intend to do by coming here repeatedly?" Putting down her pen, she looked up at the man.
"I remember telling you clearly that I have a family—"
"Are you Pei Ge?"
