AM: Chapter 8

Pei Shaoze was used to solving problems neatly and simply. A conversation that could end in 10 minutes was never delayed to 15 minutes. He didn’t want to waste time on Zhao Wenxiu so he directly brought out the surveillance video.

It actually wasn’t difficult to find. Zhao Wenxiu wasn’t a professional criminal and his anti-reconnaissance ability wasn’t strong. There was monitoring at the company’s annual meeting and it was confirmed that Zhao Wenxiu handed the juice to Cheng Xia. Once the annual meeting was over, the surveillance of the underground garage and the dash cam video could prove that he and the driver Liu Rui carried the unconscious Cheng Xia to the car.

Zhao Wenxiu’s face was a dead gray after watching the surveillance video. He originally planned to pretend he didn’t know anything. If President Pei asked then he would say it was Cheng Xia who delivered himself to the door. As a result, Pei Shaoze brought out the surveillance videos and Zhao Wenxiu’s plan was completely destroyed.

Zhao Wenxiu’s eyes shifted around as he thought of a remedy and quickly defended himself. “President Pei, I was wrong. I shouldn’t use this method to send an artist to your bed. However, I can’t be completely blamed. It was all Cheng Xia’s idea!”

Pei Shaoze’s eyes narrowed. “Is that so?”

Zhao Wenxiu explained, “Cheng Xia has always admired you very much. He bought the pheromones release agent from the hospital and secretly handed it to me. He instructed me to add it to his juice and send him to your room…”

Pei Shaoze didn’t want to listen to his nonsense and interrupted directly. “I just checked last night. The pheromones release agent is a controlled drug and must be signed by the omega and their partner in person. Buying it privately and forging the proof of purchase is illegal. If it causes serious consequences then the people involved will be sentenced. Tell me, which hospital did Cheng Xia buy the release agent from?”

Zhao Wenxiu, “……”

He also knew this? Zhao Wenxiu was even more flustered. His eyes dodged around and he obviously couldn’t make anything up anymore.

Pei Shaoze stared coldly into his eyes. “Why don’t we go to the police station and let the police get involved in the investigation?”

Zhao Wenxiu’s legs softened and he almost knelt down on the spot!

Unauthorized use of an omega pheromones release agent and forcing the omega to be involuntarily marked was indeed an illegal act. If the police really got involved, it wasn’t just Zhao Wenxiu and Liu Rui who would be detained. The doctor classmate he found to privately buy the release agent from would have his doctor’s license revoked.

Zhao Wenxiu perceived that President Pei was serious and his face instantly drained of blood. He took a deep breath, clenched his fists and spoke in a trembling voice. “P-President Pei, I was really wrong… don’t call the police. I just had a momentary obsession. I wanted to use this method to make you pay more attention to Cheng Xia. I wanted to get more resources for my artist…”

Pei Shaoze frowned. “For Cheng Xia? Did you ask for his opinion?”

Zhao Wenxiu’s expression was even uglier. “I…”

Pei Shaoze told him with a calm face, “Fortunately, my friend came over that night and gave Cheng Xia an inhibitor in time. Nothing irreversible happened. Seeing as you are an old employee of Tianxuan, I won’t alert the police. Sending you to prison won’t be good for Tianxuan’s reputation. However… if this matter spreads out, I will keep the surveillance video and you should know the consequences, right?”

Pei Shaoze didn’t want Zhao Wenxiu to go to jail. Once he was in jail, Cheng Xia would be summoned by the police as a victim. Then the incident of Cheng Xia climbing into President Pei’s bed would be known to everyone. The best way to deal with it was to end it privately and to not let it spread.

Zhao Wenxiu also understood what President Pei meant and nodded in a trembling manner. “Thank you President Pei! I’m not a calculating villain and I promise not to say a word to anyone!”

He had just sighed with relief when Pei Shaoze told him, “Go to the finance department to settle this month’s salary. There is no need for you to come to work in the future. In addition, tell your cousin Liu Rui that I don’t need a driver like him.”

Zhao Wenxiu realized that President Pei wanted to fire him and immediately rushed over. He grabbed the edge of the desk with both hands and pleaded with red eyes. “President Pei, I have been with Tianxuan for so many years. Please give me another chance!”

Pei Shaoze’s eyes were indifferent. “Go back and write your resignation letter. Follow the normal resignation procedures. If I don’t receive your resignation letter before you leave work today, I will have the HR department dismiss you for misconduct.”

Zhao Wenxiu, “……”

Pei Shaoze was actually serious.

Zhao Wenxiu almost smashed his teeth to pieces. Unspoken rules were common in the circle. Even if Cheng Xia didn’t fit President Pei’s appetite, there was no need to do this, right? Why did he kick the iron plate?!

[Zhao Wenxiu’s good impression of you -100.]

Pei Shaoze, “……”

From this perspective, Cheng Xia was actually quite gentle. He only deducted one or two points of goodwill. Zhao Wenxiu actually deducted 100 points directly.

He opened the system menu and sure enough, ‘Zhao Wenxiu’ on the list had changed to -100 and the current relationship changed from ‘subordinate’ to ‘hate.’ Pei Shaoze didn’t mind this change. There would be endless troubles if he kept people with a bad heart around him. It was better to cut it off quickly with a knife.

***

Zhao Wenxiu’s eyes were bloodshot when he walked out of the office. He couldn’t believe he was being kicked out of Tianxuan. He walked through the elevator doors in a daze and almost ran into a person.

It was a tall, thin woman in a pair of high heels and wearing a long coat. The woman was surprised for a moment when she saw Zhao Wenxiu. Then she greeted him with a smile. “Old Zhao, long time no see.”

Zhao Wenxiu was depressed so he replied in a perfunctory manner, “Yes. You are back at work?”

“Yes, I’m coming to report to the boss.”

The woman’s name was Zhou Yan and she was a resolute beta agent. She entered Tianxuan in the same year as Zhao Wenxiu and the artists she looked after previously were all tepid. Later, she took maternity leave for six months so Zhao Wenxiu had almost forgotten about the existence of this person.

The two of them briefly greeted each other at the elevator door and passed by each other.

Zhou Yan was very confused. She had already reported to the personnel department after coming back from leave and she didn’t have much contact with her new boss Pei Shaoze. Why did Assistant Zhang suddenly ask her to come see the president today?

Zhou Yan walked into the office and greeted with a smile. “President Pei, were you looking for me?”

Pei Shaoze was looking at a pile of documents. After he saw her coming in, he put down the documents and asked in a low voice, “Ms. Zhou, you took maternity leave so your artists have been transferred to other agents. You currently aren’t looking after an artist, right?”

Zhou Yan was startled. Unexpectedly, President Pei knew her situation. She met his gaze and nodded. “Yes, President Pei. I just came back from work a few days ago and I’m still waiting for the notice from the artist’s department.”

“Don’t wait, I will arrange an artist for you.” Pei Shaoze pushed a pile of documents in front of Zhou Yan. “He is Cheng Xia and he is a newcomer who just signed with the company.”

Zhou Yan was a bit uncertain in her heart and the fingers that received the information were a bit stiff.

Pei Shaoze told her, “Tianxuan will undergo some changes soon. You can take a look at Cheng Xia’s information first but don’t rush to contact him. I will arrange for Cheng Xia to follow you, understood?”

Zhou Yan’s head was full of question marks. What did it mean to arrange a newcomer for her? Cheng Xia? She never heard of him! Still, she didn’t dare openly oppose the boss’ decision, even if she heard from her colleagues that the boss was an idiot. She nodded respectfully. “I understand, President Pei.”

The moment she left the office, the general manager of the agents department knocked on the door of the office. Assistant Zhang Fan was so busy that he couldn’t stop spinning around. He made an appointment with six people in a row this morning.

First there was the agent Zhao Wenxiu and the agent Zhou Yan who had just came back from maternity leave. Then there was Chen Lu, manager of the agents department, Liu Qiang, director of the financial department, Zhu Jianan, director of the copyrights department Zhu Jianan and Xu Xin, director of the legal department.

Zhang Fan brought these people into the office and everyone was very puzzled. After all, it was the first time Pei Shaoze was meeting with the middle management.

The office door was closed tightly and it wasn’t known what President Pei said to them. Zhang Fan just saw them walking out of the office and none of them had good expressions. Did President Pei get upset early in the morning and called over a group of the company’s management to scold them?

Just as Zhang Fan was feeling curious. Pei Shaoze came out of the office. It was exactly 9:30 a.m.

Zhang Fan got up quickly and heard the man say, “Xiao Zhang, go to conference room 1 to make preparations and confirm that the projection equipment can be used normally. There is an important meeting at 10 o’clock.

Important meeting?

Zhang Fan hurriedly took the door key card that Pei Shaoze gave him. “I understand, President Pei.”

Pei Shaoze turned and headed to the chairman’s office. Pei Sheng was making tea in the office. The moment Pei Shaoze knocked on the door and entered, he focused his gaze on his son.

Today, his son was wearing a suit with his shirt ironed neatly and tie neatly tied. There was a saying that ‘people rely on clothes.’ This change in clothes combined with Pei Shaoze’s already handsome looks and he finally looked like a company executive.

Pei Sheng was satisfied. “It seems you are serious this time? Are you ready to speak later?”

Pei Shaoze was calm. “Father, rest assured. I will find a way to convince them.”

The meeting time was at 10 o’clock. The shareholders of the company came to the meeting room one after another at 9:50 a.m. The group of people looked confused and lowered their voices to discuss it. “Why did Chairman Pei suddenly call everyone for a meeting? Is there something wrong?”

”I’m not sure…”

At 10 o’clock, all the shareholders were present. The door of the conference room opened on time and Pei Sheng walked in with Pei Shaoze. Pei Sheng who walked in front was in his 50s. He had gray hair but he was still full of energy. Everyone was naturally no stranger to Chairman Pei. They were just shocked when they saw Pei Shaoze following him. Today’s Pei Shaoze seemed to put on airs and they almost didn’t recognize him!

At the first executive meeting after Pei Shaoze became president of Tianxuan, the young alpha had slouched in his chair. During the meeting, he turned his pen impatiently and he was too lazy to listen to the reports of various departments. He even yawned at the shareholders and the executives of the company didn’t like him at all.

However, today he was wearing a suit, walked with an upright posture and looked very serious. He was completely different from the previous Pei Shaoze!

Once Pei Sheng sat in the main seat, Pei Shaoze naturally sat down in the empty seat to his father’s left and turned on the laptop.

“Everyone is here. Let’s start the meeting.” Pei Sheng spoke simply. “Today, I called this meeting because Shaoze has some ideas that need to solicit everyone’s opinions. After all, he is young. If the proposed plan isn’t feasible then it needs to be discussed.”

Chairman Pei cut to the chase and nodded at his son, indicating that he could start. Pei Shaoze got up and connected his laptop to the projector in the conference room. On the enlarged high-definition projection screen, a simple powerpoint slide presentation appeared in front of everyone.

The shareholders, “???”

He actually made a PPT for his speech! Was he stimulated by something?
