1284 Gemei is the most beautiful hope there is.
"Oh? Are you sure?"
"Why can't I be sure?!" In the face of her doubt and mocking gaze, Pei Shishi lost her cool entirely. "Who do you think you are?! Not only do I own forty-five percent of the shares, I also have the support of everyone in this board! Why can't I be sure?"
Even though she had lost her cool, she did not forget to boast about her assets.
"Don't think you're great just because you've spent some time overseas and made yourself look good via some unspeakable means. I'm telling you; you lost to me and had to leave five years ago. This time, the results will still be the same!"
Her remark drifted into Pei Ge's ears, but despite their harshness, she did not feel upset about it, and a smile remained plastered on her face.
"Are you done?"
Seeing how calm she was, the other felt indignant, for she felt that her words were seen as a joke by her.
"Since you're done, it's my turn."
Her cousin looked at her and got up from the chair.
The casual atmosphere in the room changed instantly. It was the same person, but her aura suddenly got sharper.
Shocked by this sudden change in the woman's demeanor, Pei Shishi forgot to speak for a moment.
"It's been thirty years since the Pei Family Real Estate was founded."
As Pei Ge swept her gaze across the board of directors in the room, she was suddenly reminded of her father when she saw their unfamiliar and aged faces.
If her father had not been murdered by his brother, she would probably have to call everyone seated in this room uncle.
"While many of you assumed that this company's founder is Pei Zhenghui, that's not true. Pei Family Real Estate wasn't called like that before; instead, it's called…
"Gemei. Gemei Real Estate," she said in a shaky voice and tearful eyes.
Dad, I still remember this name…
"It's called Gemei because a loving father to his daughter came up with, taking the 'Ge' in his daughter's name. Since this company was meant to be his daughter's dowry in marriage, he named it Gemei.
This was in hopes of his daughter, Pei Ge, growing up to be beautiful and leading a lovely life."
Dad, I still remember…
At that moment, she seemed to have heard her father's loving voice whispering into her ear…
'Daddy's little Ge Ge has grown up! How great!'
She sniffled, forcing back the tears in her eyes.
Pei Ge, you can't cry! You're fighting a battle at this moment. Everyone here is an enemy you need to defeat, so you can't show them your weakness!
"What is going on here?"
"If I'm not mistaken, she's Minghao Group's CFO, Regina. Is she a shareholder of our company?"
"What's Gemei Real Estate? Who is Pei Ge?"
Pei Shishi, who had received a shock from her cousin's words, recovered from it at the commotion around her.
"Stop spouting nonsense and making yourself look pitiful. Do you think anyone will buy your sob story? Besides, this is Pei Family Real Estate through and through. It has nothing to do with that Gemei company you speak of!"
Her words seemed to fall on deaf ears, though, as the other paid no attention to her and merely continued speaking with a cold expression. "This loving father didn't expect his brother to be after his company, though, to the extent of taking his life in order to seize it! Afterward, his murderer changed this company's name to what it is today!"
Everyone here immediately understood what she meant upon hearing that!
The members of the board were reminded of their former CEO presently being in prison for committing parricide.
The way they looked at her changed at this thought.
After all, they were no simpletons. They could figure out what was wrong here after having been in the trade for so long.
This woman before them was that Pei Ge in the story.
She was also the daughter of the man Pei Zhenghui had murdered!
This beautiful woman must be back for revenge!
"Stop confusing everyone with your nonsense! What of this company's origin being Gemei? Stop bewitching people with your sob story! They won't buy it!"
Pei Ge laughed coldly when she heard her cousin's words and finally brought back her gaze to her.
"Do you really think that I'd come here without anything prepared?"
She had done all the preparatory work.
"My objective here today is simple, and that is to—"
Raising her head, she glanced coldly at everyone.
"Come back and take back everything that belongs to me.
"I don't care if you support Pei Shishi or not. Your votes don't matter to me."
Her words resulted in a commotion in the conference room.
"How can it not matter?"
"Why? Don't Ms. Pei have forty-five percent of the shares? Could it be that you have more than that?"
"That couldn't be! We haven't sold our shares…"
Hearing their chatter, Pei Shishi thought the same. Even now, she did not believe that her cousin would have more shares than her!
"How bold of you. Even if I don't count the votes by the members of the board today, do you think that the shares you hold can beat what I have?"
"Pfft! Do you still think that you have that many shares? You're really a lot dumber than you were five years ago."
 Mei means beautiful in Chinese.
