Alex noticed that there was something wrong with Xiao Jing’s expression, so he called Felix and Quinn aside and whispered, “Xiao Jing seems to be a little unhappy. I feel very sorry for her. I’m sorry to talk to her. If there is a chance, you two can talk to her. Tell her my situation and difficulties in detail, I hope she can understand. If she really can’t stand it and wants to resign, I will respect her choice.”
Felix waved his hand. “President Cohen, we understand your situation and are willing to cooperate. Although Xiao Jing’s identity is not ordinary, she is kind-hearted and will not be angry with you because you suddenly transferred the company to someone else. If I am not wrong, she is in a bad mood for another reason…”
“That’s right.” Quinn nodded and added, “She probably saw you being so nice to President Sullivan and jealous.”
Alex was a little stunned. “That shouldn’t be the case. Xiao Jing already knows about the relationship between me and Isla. If she was jealous, she should have shown it a long time ago.”
Quinn was also stunned, then shook his head and said, “Then I’m not sure.”
“No matter what, you two should communicate more with her. She has just arrived at Gold Stone, and there are no other acquaintances except you two. I can only count on you…”
Alex was very ignorant of love. In terms of love, his reaction was relatively slow. He could not see through Xiao Jing’s mind. Of course, this was not a bad thing. If he knew Xiao Jing’s thoughts, it would be more difficult and guilty of Xiao Jing.
In the afternoon, Quinn invited Xiao Jing to have a meal together and gave her a lecture.
Unfortunately, Quinn’s efforts were in vain. The next day, Xiao Jing called Isla for leave on the grounds of discomfort. It was a long vacation. In fact, Xiao Jing was not feeling uncomfortable, but she was too preoccupied. After taking leave, she did not stay at home, but chose to travel abroad.
After learning about this, Alex realized that there might be some misunderstanding, but he was too embarrassed to contact Xiao Jing, so he didn’t go to Xiao Jing’s family. After thinking about it for a while, he finally went to the inpatient department of the military hospital and explained the recent changes in the company and his relationship with Isla to Xiao Hang.
After hearing this, Xiao Hang shook his head helplessly. “It turns out to be like this… We always thought that you were single. We felt that you and Jingjing are a perfect match. In addition, Jingjing has a good impression of you, so my parents and I encouraged her to date you… Alas, if we had known about the complicated relationship between you and President Sullivan, we would not have misunderstood you.”
“It’s my fault. It’s my fault…” Alex replied awkwardly. “It’s my fault that I didn’t make it clear.”
“No, no, I don’t mean to blame you. If you want to blame someone, you can only blame Jingjing for not having this blessing.”
“Captain Xiao, please do not say this…”
Alex felt very guilty. Although it was not his fault, he had let Xiao Jing down and felt sorry for her.
Fortunately, Xiao Jing was a good girl. She was beautiful and had a good personality. She didn’t have to worry about marriage at all. Moreover, the window paper between them hadn’t been exposed yet. For Xiao Jing, it was not a loss of love. The impact on her was not serious. She should be able to recover after a trip.
Xiao Hang also knew that relationships could only be decided by fate and could not be forced. He really had no intention of blaming Alex.
If they had to find a responsible person for this matter, then they could only find Fang Chen. From the very beginning, it was Fang Chen who asked Xiao Jing to approach Alex. Later, he swore that Alex and Isla were pretending to get married, and it was also Fang Chen who brought Xiao Jing and Alex together.
However, Xiao Hang also knew that Fang Chen did that out of good intentions.
At the end of the day, the matter between Xiao Jing and Alex was not right or wrong at all. It was just a misunderstanding.
Now that the misunderstanding had been resolved, there was no need to investigate further.
Xiao Hang picked up his mobile phone, took out a photo, and said to Alex, “You don’t have to worry about Jingjing. I’ve arranged for someone to follow her secretly to ensure her safety. Mr. Cohen, tell me something else. Have you seen the person in the photo?”
Alex took the phone and found that on the screen was a photo of a middle-aged man who was about 35 years old. The man had a tiger back and a bear waist. His face was fat and ugly enough to scare children to tears. His hair was cut very short, as if he had just come out of the detention center. At first glance, he was not a good person.
“This person… I think I’ve never seen him before.”
Alex saw the person very accurately and remembered very well. The characteristics of the person in the photo were obvious. If he had seen him before, he would definitely leave a deep impression. After looking at him carefully for a long time, he confirmed that there was no impression at all, and then returned the phone. “Captain Xiao, who is this person?”
“It’s good that you haven’t seen him before.” Xiao Hang put down his mobile phone and said seriously, “This person’s name is Pei Chong.”
“Oh… Has he been in prison?”
“Not yet, but he will go to jail sooner or later. Mr. Cohen, do you still remember what I said to you before? Jing Kun sent someone to avenge Lei Zi, right? According to the investigation, the leader is the person in the photo, called Brother Chong! If you meet him, don’t fight him head-on. If you can hide, leave him to the police.”
“Why? Is he very powerful?”
Xiao Hang’s face became serious. He nodded and said, “Not only is he powerful, but he is also very vicious.”
Alex’s curiosity was instantly aroused. After thinking for a while, he asked, “How is it compared with Lei Zi?”
“Lei Zi is just a junior trained by Jing Kun. He hasn’t fully grown up yet and is in the training period. Although he has some reputation in his camp, he is more like a fox than a tiger and is exposed to the light of Jing Kun. And this Pei Chong has been following Jing Kun for more than ten years. He has become the right-hand man of Jing Kun from a nobody. He is a real valiant general. If Lei Zi is a graduate of the newly appointed office, then Pei Chong is an experienced elite in the workplace.”
“So, Jing Kun is very determined to avenge Lei Zi.”
“Anyway, according to the information we have, Pei Chong has never failed to complete the task for Jing Kun. All the male targets, not only died, but also died miserably. As for the woman, even if she didn’t die, she would be played to death by him. By the way, you have seen Pei Chong’s cruelty once…”
“That’s right! He’s in a hurry to take revenge on me, and I still want to take revenge on him!”
Alex still remembered the great hatred for the tragic death of Victor. Although the person who killed Victor was killed by Big Ken on the spot, the man was just a small potato who followed orders. As the mastermind behind the kidnapping, Pei Chong was the main culprit who deserved to pay for the death of Victor and the nanny.
Xiao Hang realized that Alex suddenly showed a fierce look and was frightened. “President Cohen, Pei Chong is not an ordinary person. He may be more vicious than any opponent you have met before. You must not be careless. I understand how you want to take revenge on him, but you have to think about your own safety. Don’t worry, our police will arrest him sooner or later. At that time, you will take revenge.”
“Okay, Captain Xiao. I won’t mess around.”
In order not to let Xiao Hang worry, Alex readily agreed.
After leaving the hospital, Alex planned to go to Hudson Designs LLC to have a look. Suddenly, he received a call from Liu Wenzhong.
Liu Wenzhong said that after the discussion between Bureau of Industry and Commerce and Tax department, he decided to sell 40% of the shares of Qingyun Media at a price of 32 billion yuan.
But this amount was only enough to make up for the payment and fine of Qingyun Media, and it was only the starting price.
In order to continue the operation of Qingyun Media, which had been hollowed out, they still needed to continue to have a high price. Therefore, in principle, they should adopt the way that the one with the highest price would get it. No matter how much the final price was, the portion of more than 1.2 billion yuan would be regarded as an investment for Qingyun Media to get the corresponding proportion of shares.
Liu Wenzhong and the others did this in order to invest as much as possible in Qingyun Media.
They had already informed the public that the investors or investment companies who intended to go to the auction would offer a price within three days to participate in the auction. Three days later, they would make an appointment to meet the top three buyers and make the final decision after face to face.
Alex immediately found Lin Ke and discussed it. They decided to join hands to invest 10 billion yuan in Qingyun Media. As long as they succeeded, they could become the first major shareholder of Qingyun Media, and it was a financial crisis!
