Rags To Riches Chapter 271-272

 Chapter 271

It was already noon the next day when Qin Ming and Nie Haitang returned to Guang City.

                Nie Haitang wanted to go back to report her safety and at the same time confront her dad, Nie Jianmin, about why he was forcing her to go to one of those top-rich blind dates.

                Qin Ming sent her back to Nie's house before rushing to Mu's house to see what the big deal was that Mu Sichen refused to talk about on the phone.

                Just as he entered the door, Mu Sichen ran over and tugged on his hand, saying, "Brother-in-law, why did you only come back. Sister has left, she left last night and seemed to be crying. You weren't around, so I guess I missed you."

                When Qin Ming heard this, he even rolled his eyes, how big a deal is this, to put it in such an exaggerated way, he asked, "Where to?"

                Mu Si Chun nuzzled her mouth and said, "The capital. She said that the last show stage to launch her company's products was a big success, and now that sister's luxury brand has gained fame, there are many companies that want to cooperate with sister's company to go international, and one of the companies that has a great brand distribution is in the capital city, so sister is going to move her whole company there."

                Move the whole company? That's too much, isn't it? Hiding from him?

                Qin Ming asked, "Did she say anything before she left? To me."

                Mu Sichen held her chin up with an expression of thinking about life and said, "She said she wanted you to take good care of me. Forgot about the rest."

                Qin Ming narrowed his eyes and reached out to flick Mu Si Chun's forehead, was this teasing him?

                He looked inside the house, no one was there.

                Mu Si Chun explained, "Dad went to work on Grandpa's special medicine purchase, while Mom and Big Brother took care of the company's business for the boss. I'm the most idle, hehehe."

                Qin Ming said, "The whole family is working so hard, it's not good for you to be too lazy."

                Mu Si Chun hummed, "I'm still studying, I have exams coming up and I have an audition for a big director, I'm going to be an idol."

                Qin Ming knew that Mu Sichen was a student of the South China University of Opera, with outstanding looks, a good body, the ability to sing and dance, and the basic qualities to be an idol and a singer.

                Qin Ming said, "Then you go for it."

                Mu Sichen pulled Qin Ming's arm and said, "Hey hey hey, brother-in-law, why don't you care at all that sister is gone? You're not sad at all? Aren't you afraid that when sister goes to the capital city, she won't be able to hold back her loneliness and cheat on you, what if she cuckolds you?"

                Qin Ming laughed and asked rhetorically, "Yeah, what can I do. We'll just have to get a divorce then."

                Mu Sichen rolled her eyes and said, "How can you think like that? My sister wouldn't cheat on me, don't look at my sister who is usually cold, but she must decide something and will do it to the end and do the best she can."

                "For example, she used to say she would never fall in love when she was at university, and she really gave her whole heart to her studies for four whole years."

                "Then she said she would stand on her own two feet and not rely on help from her family, and she did her own business step by step, forming companies, pulling in investments, making products and releasing sales, all on her own."

                "If she agrees to marry you, she will definitely take you as her husband. Don't look at my sister as cold and icy, but she is actually quite traditional, and the person she identifies with is the same person, and will not change. So, brother-in-law, you can't let my sister down, don't talk about divorce at every turn."

                Looking at Mu Sichen nervously extending her finger to lecture someone, Qin Ming inexplicably felt something in his heart, it seemed that he had never bothered to get to know Mu Xiaoqiao, and he was not sure what kind of person she was.

                Only now, after hearing Mu Si Chun talk about it, did he learn something about her past and her personality.

                However, Qin Ming was still torn, Mu Hao was not here and Mu Xiaoqiao had simply slipped away, who would he find to talk about the divorce?

                How was this going to be resolved?

                Qin Ming thought about it and said, "Alright, you go about your business. I'll talk to your sister if I have something to say. You don't have to worry about our affairs, you study hard and try to become a big star soon."

                Mu Sichen nuzzled her little mouth and said, "It's a deal. Oh, you have to coax my sister well, my sister is only strong on the outside, but she's actually very fragile on the inside."

                Qin Ming sent a message to Mu Xiaoqiao, not knowing what to say, but after all, there was no divorce yet, and the promises on the agreement had to be kept, and finally sent a sentence, "If you have any difficulties, you must contact me, I can solve anything."

                At this moment, Mu Xiaoqiao, who was in Beijing, received the message and her expression was stunned. She clicked to delete the message in shame, but the moment she confirmed it, she hesitated.

                Her long, white fingers tapped to cancel and then quickly tapped to delete, but when she was about to confirm it, she hesitated again, and so on several times, and she angrily threw her phone into her bag.

                He had to rush back to school for his afternoon class, but only when he arrived did he realise that the exams were due to start the day after tomorrow and the course was already finished, with everyone preparing for the exams.

                When Qin Ming returned, he also threw himself into preparing for the exams, after all, one of the four patriarchs of the Oneworld Century Group, Main? After all, one of the Four Elders of the Oneworld Century Group, Maine Hathaway, would be coming to meet with him and inspect his studies.

                For the next week, it was exam week, and the students in the university town were relatively quiet.

                He had finished his honeymoon, handed over his work to Bi Yuan and returned to work.

                Qin Ming did contact Mu Hao, but Mu Hao was too busy and never had the time to talk to him about the divorce at all when he got in touch.

                Although it gave Qin Ming a headache, how to explain to Nie Haitang, Qin Ming could only stay up for one day.

                This day, Qin Ming sent the three dormitory brothers away, summer vacation he is also not back home, before is in the city of Guangzhou to work delivery, now he is the world's richest man, can do more things.

                It was just getting dark when Qin Ming received a call from Song Ying: "Young master, Mayin? Hathaway is here, she said she is waiting for Young Master to come over at Century Mansion."

                The school results had just been released today and the other party had arrived, Qin Ming secretly sighed that the other party had come really fast.

                Ah Long drove and Qin Ming rushed to the Century Building.

                On the way, he received a message from Song Ying that Mayin? Hathaway was a white man, an international mercenary, who was later recovered by Chang Hongxi and managed the general affairs of the regional industries for him, and was currently the executive officer of the highest board of directors of the Huan Yu Century Group.

                It is fair to say that Marin Hathaway is the most powerful person in the group. Hathaway has a great deal of power within the group.

                Although the assassination of Chang Huan had been used as a test of Qin Ming's ability to prove that he was capable, Qin Ming thought that he would have to rely on himself to tame the four elders.

                If the Four Elders were discontented, it would be a heap of trouble and resistance for Qin Ming to take over the Huan Yu Century Group in the future.

                Seeing that Qin Ming's face was rather grave, Ah Long asked, "Young master, do you need to change into a more formal set of clothes?"

                Qin Ming said, "No, she is my subordinate, I don't need to prepare clothes for her. The main priority should be clearly separated."

                Twenty minutes later, Qin Ming arrived at the Century Building, he stood below the building and looked up at the tall building, tonight, I'm afraid it's going to be a big night.

Chapter 272

Qin Ming arrived at the conference room on the top floor of the Century Building, Qi Yundong, Hou Qing, Qi Minghui, Zhou Yu, Bi Yuan, Qian Bao, Song Ying and other subordinates were already waiting here early, after all, Mayin? Hathaway was also considered their superior, and on the rare occasion that she came over, she was bound to come to offer her condolences.

                Qin Ming walked into the meeting room and saw one of the Four Elders, Mayin Hathaway. He had brown hair, not too fat, not too thin, and looked younger than her actual age, with a fierce scar on her face at the corner of her eye and sharp eyes.

                From the information provided, this Main? Heatherway's military career spanned two decades, and her style after her business career was iron-fisted and uncompromising.

                Qin Ming knew that it was Chang Hongxi's trust in her that gave her so much power; Chang was dying of cancer and she wanted to gain trust in her new master.

                However, it was also possible that she wanted to control the new master to bring her power to an even higher level.

                For this meeting, Qin Ming couldn't be too wimpy and polite. This kind of wild horse-like woman, especially an older one, once she didn't leave a good impression, then she basically demanded to carry on with you to the end.

                Qin Ming actually did not have much experience in meeting business giants, especially the important members of the Huan Yu Century Group, which is not the same as ordinary enterprises, it is not something that can be done just by having a drink and chatting.

                Before Qin Ming could open his mouth, Maine? Hathaway stood up excitedly, opened her arms and said, "Oh, young master, it's finally time to meet you."

                Qin Ming didn't really like the western country's meet and greet, and had to stick his face in, but he was still quite cooperative.

                Maine? Hathaway, who was more approachable than expected, looked Qin Ming over carefully and said, "I'm sorry about your father's illness, there's nothing we can do. I was shocked when he said he wanted to leave everything in your hands, so I took the time to come and see you."

                Maine? When Hathaway finished, she said to the people around her, "I have some personal words with the young master, so you all go out."

                Get rid of all of Qin Ming's people as soon as we meet?

                No one around them moved their feet; Song Ying and the others must have listened to Qin Ming.

                Main? Hathaway looked at Qin Ming meaningfully and said, "well, don't you trust me?"

                Qin Ming frowned, this smiling woman was really capable of making trouble, coming up and giving him such a problem.

                To be reasonable, it was also the first time the two of them had met, what trust was there to speak of, furthermore, Qin Ming had only suffered the assassination of Chang Huan, she suddenly came and wanted to meet with Qin Ming alone, the risk factor was too great.

                But if you don't agree, then you don't trust, and all the talk behind the distrust is useless nonsense, and it's also easy to create suspicion.

                Qin Ming did not hesitate for long and chided, "Are all deaf? All go out."

                Song Ying and the others were all very worried, but had to walk out of the meeting room due to Qin Ming's orders.

                Main? Hathaway smiled slightly, patted Qin Ming's hand, looking very intimate, and said, "Thank you for your trust, young master."

                Qin Ming said, "Auntie Main, righteous father trusts you, and I trust you as well. You have never let your righteous father down, and I naturally don't want you to let me down either."

                Qin Ming's words were clear in their implication, meaning that if you are loyal to me, then everything will be fine, you will still have what you deserve, and if you are not loyal to me, then once you are a son of God, you will be a vassal, so get lost and your bones will not be there if you are late.

                Marin? Hathaway narrowed her eyes, sat back and said, "The old regular asked me to see how you were doing with your reading, which is what he should have done as a father, but his illness couldn't support him running around anymore. So I had to be a governess for a while."

                Qin Ming brought his exam report card early on, the individual subjects did not have full marks the others were all full marks, and he scored first in the whole house.

                Maine? After reading it, Hathaway put the test paper down casually and said disappointedly, "The tests are all too stereotypical, too old content. You haven't managed to get it all right. The practical examples of economics do not follow closely the current economic mega-trends, young master, your results have disappointed me."

                Qin Ming frowned and said, "What does Auntie Main mean by this?"

                Maine? The school you are attending is not of a high enough standard, and the questions you are asked are not perfectly answered, and the answers are backward and outdated, how do you think you will be able to lead the Universal Century Group in the future? "

                Qin Ming's fist clenched, wasn't this a deliberate prick? With fewer people, the true face of the mountain was revealed?

                What virtue and what ability does he have?

                Qin Ming clenched his hands into fists, propped his body up on the tabletop and said, "Auntie Mayin, the fact that I was chosen by my righteous father is that I have virtue, and the fact that Chang Huan failed to assassinate me last time is proof that I have ability."

                Qin Ming added, "The volume of the Huan Yu Century Group is indeed large, but I never thought I could rely on me alone to take it. Network talents to work for me. We have an old Chinese saying that those who are emperors should know the art of imperialism. Auntie Main, do you think that's right?"

                Maine? Hathaway was quite surprised and said, "You do have a knack for the art of emperor in China, but how much do you know? Don't boast about it."

                Qin Ming added, "Firstly, the way of kings is to be clear-headed, to rule without doing anything, not to do anything personally, to know people and make good use of them. For example, Liu Bang, the founding emperor of the Han Dynasty of China, was a mere pavilion commander, not as good as the strategist Zhang Liang, not as good as the general Han Xin, not as good as the politician Xiao He, but he was able to know people and use them, and he was the emperor at the top of the pyramid."

                Mayne? Hathaway frowned, stunned by Qin Ming's words, this young man in front of her was not a simple man.

                Qin Ming continued, "The second point, the tools of unification, to manage ordinary employees one has to use regulations, which are relatively well handled. While governing important cadres requires imperial techniques, establishing prestige, the temptation of love and profit, mutual supervision, excluding others with others, dividing duties and weak powers, and finally consolidating one's own momentum, holding heavy power in one's hands and following the trend."

                Main? Hathaway listened to Qin Ming's words, and it was clear that he was not a fool.

                Qin Ming stretched out three fingers and said, "The last point is to move across the world and take control of it. Although I have only been in contact with the Oneworld Century Group for a short while, I can already feel that in this group, power is not bound by any benevolence, morality, fairness or justice, only the winner is king and the loser is a foe."

                Main? Hathaway finally moved after hearing what Qin Ming had said, and she stretched out her hands to applaud.

                "Slap, slap, slap."

                Main? Hathaway said, "Good, you have the basic talents of a leader. You've basically been managing the domestic industries in China for a month now, and there really are no major mistakes. You do have a way of managing your subordinates."

                Qin Ming said proudly, "The moment I accepted to inherit everything from my righteous father, I have been preparing. Auntie Main, I know what I am carrying on my shoulders, so please rest assured that I will not let anyone who follows me down. Maybe I'm not at the top of my academic achievements, but I'm surrounded by people who are top enough, and that's all that matters."

                Main? Hathaway crossed her legs and said, "I'm quite satisfied with that answer. However, I personally have one more test to give you for just talking."

                Qin Ming breathed a sigh of relief, not expecting that his theory of the imperial art of unification could convince one of the Four Patriarchs, Mayin Hathaway. Hathaway, but hearing that she had one more test to give him, he had a bad feeling.

                Was it going to be practical? But how would it be practised?
