Black Bellied President Dotes on Wife - Ch71.2
Fang Ruoyi was desperately holding her down, as if she was afraid she would run away any moment.
Shangguan Ning silently pulled back her arm and turned her head to Shangguan Hangyin and directly went to the point: “Second uncle, what’s wrong with Liyu Science and Technology? Can we talk about it now?”
Shangguan Hangyin glanced at her and moved his lips trying to speak, but he was still speechless out of embarrassment.
Fang Ruoyi was in a hurry, so when she saw her husband was unreliable, she directly started crying and wiping her tears while whining about what Liyu Science and Technology experienced recently.
Shangguan Ning knew that she merely putting on a play, but she still listened to her quietly. Her second aunt kept talking in a roundabout way for a while before she finally clearly explained the matter.
Originally, the new smartphone developed by Liyu Science and Technology was mainly aimed at the youngsters’ market. It featured high-definition photography cameras and long durability. The company had even invited the currently most popular tv host in A city Shangguan Rouxue to advertise it. Although her appeal wasn’t weak, but the cellphone itself wasn’t too cost-effective, and since its popularity was quite weak, the sales haven’t been very optimistic.
Moreover, the Ji family’s subordinate company LOVE technology had recently launched a new mobile phone. Its design was not only more fashionable, but it was also marketed at a lower price.
As a result, Liyu technology’s sales have been falling sharply since then, and the previous research and development investment funds were just like they were thrown into the sea.
The house was already leaking when it suddenly started raining. At this critical period of crisis when Liyu technology is desperately struggling, some people actually recruited the whole research and development team of the company for a higher salary.
(TN: House leaking… is an idiom meaning the situation was already bad when it became even more dreadful. The English equivalent would be “when it rains it pours” I believe.)
Liyu technology was paralyzed almost instantly.
Upon hearing this, Shangguan Ning immediately frowned.
“Second uncle, for the lack of members in the scientific research team, I’m afraid a woman like me can’t change anything about it. It’s better for you to reconstitute a new team as soon as possible.”
He knew more scientific and technological personnel than she did. What’s more, it was an error of judgment to actually start develop mobile phones, so only Shangguan Hangyi could take responsibility for it.
Shangguan Hangyi sighed. He thought about it for a moment, then he said: “Xiao Ning, I’m afraid you don’t know that our company’s scientific research team was actually recruited away with evil intentions. The man said… As long as you’re willing to have a meal and chat with him, he would return the team to us and even help us defeat LOVE’s mobile phones.”
As soon as Shangguan Ning heard what he said, her heart completely froze. She knew just from how enthusiastic they acted today, they mustn’t have any good intentions! __________
Her body instantly stiffened and she felt very cold inside. It was as if the two people sitting in front of her weren’t her blood-related relatives but actually her arch enemies.
They could actually push her out and sell her away so easily!
Shangguan Ning tightly suppressed the burning anger in her chest, then, she slowly stood up before taking her bag and leaving.
“This is your business, and it has nothing to do with me. From the day you gave me 5 million to chase me away, Liyu technology has nothing to do with me anymore!”
When Shangguan Hangyi saw that she was leaving, he couldn’t sit still anymore and immediately shouted: “This is your father’s meaning as well, it wasn’t my decision alone!” (TN: ‘meaning’ as in: he’s of the same opinion and agrees to it.)
Shangguan Ning’s steps abruptly stopped and she completely froze like a statue.
She slowly breathed in and out for a while before gradually recovering her calm and resuming her steps towards the door.
“Whoever means it has nothing to do with me. I don’t have to sacrifice myself for you.”
Someone maliciously poached the scientific research team of Liyu Science and Technology and purposely designated her to chat and eat with him. She doesn’t think that person went out of his way just in order to eat and chat.
How could Shangguan Hangyi be willing to call her all the way here and simply let her like that?
Clearly knowing Shangguan Ning’s weakness, he quickly said: “Xiao Ning, if you don’t want to look at my face, you should still look at your mother’s face! Liyu Science and Technology was created by her own hands, would you just stand by and idly watch as it collapses and disappear from the world?”
