Chapter 78- Self-producing While Selling
When the two came to the garden, Qin Lu had just finished talking with Zhou Beiwang on the phone. Upon seeing Ms. Long smiling, she seemed to be in a good mood, so Qin Lu wondered if something had happened just now.
“What made you so happy?”
Ms. Long repeated what happened just now, “Mo Juncheng, the second-married wife, has always been very ambitious. But it’s a pity that she gave birth to a useless son. Fortunately, you are like me. If you are like that old guy, I can only have another one myself.”
Qin Lu directly ignored his mother’s last few words, but he was quite surprised. He originally wanted to help his sweetheart solve Mrs. Mo’s trouble in private, but he didn’t expect him to solve it easily by himself.
“You guessed it a long time ago?”
Jiang Liucheng looked at them innocently, “No, many things are easy to guess as long as they are equated with interests.”
The more Ms. Long watched, the more she liked it. “Liucheng, when are you going to do it? I mean, when are you going to marry Qin Lu? Although the same-sex marriage law has not been passed in China, I know that there is a country that allows it whole not allowing divorce.”
“More than a month ago, you still didn’t agree with me and Liucheng.” Qin Lu kindly reminded her.
Ms. Long gave him a graceful look, “You didn’t like Liucheng half a year ago.”
Qin Lu was speechless.
While they were chatting, Zhou Beiwang approached them again because they hadn’t gone to the hall for a long time. Upon seeing him, Ms. Long became stiff in an instant.
“Aunt Long, when did you come? My mother was still asking about you just now, saying why you haven’t come yet.”
“I’ll be going just now. Let’s go.” After Ms. Long finished speaking, he took the lead to go to the banquet hall.
Zhou Beiwang regained his energy when he heard this and immediately followed.
Qin Lu also followed with Jiang Liucheng.
A group of four returned to the banquet hall when many guests had already taken their seats.
As soon as Ms. Long appeared, she immediately attracted the attention of many people. As soon as she was seated, several bosses came over to say hello to her.
“Isn’t this Mr.Qin Lu? What a talent.”
“Yeah, I didn’t expect that the famous Qin Lu is the son of Mrs. Long. My daughter kept talking about him years ago, saying that her idol is coming back. I’m so happy.”
“Yes, my daughter who lives abroad is also Qin Lu’s fan. When I heard that Qin Lu will also attend the banquet, she told me to ask him for an autograph.”
After Qin Lu took over part of the Qin family’s property, he made sure not to keep a very high-profile. But nonetheless, it’s difficult to conceal his identity. After all, he is the only orthodox heir of the Long family and the Qin family. Even if Director Qin doesn’t accept it, he can’t change this fact.
There is no reason why Qin Lu should not agree to the face given by the bosses.
After exchanging a few pleasantries, everyone noticed that there was another person next to Qin Lu. The young man looked very unfamiliar, but he was with Ms. Long and Qin Lu. The bosses thought it was the son of some family.
“I don’t know who this young master is?” Mr. Qi asked with a smile.
As soon as Qin Lu was about to introduce, Ms. Long preempted him and said, “His name is Jiang Liucheng, and he is also my son.”
Upon seeing the scene of them chatting and laughing, the people around were envious, and some people’s faces turned dark.
How enthusiastic the bosses were towards Ms. Long and Qin Lu, it seemed how indifferent they were to Qin Dong, who was at the same table and had just introduced his illegitimate son to them.
Some people don’t need to look to know how ugly Qin Dong’s expression is at this moment.
However, to the surprise of all spectators, Ms. Long would suddenly throws a bomb.
Qin Dong stood up abruptly after being stunned for two seconds. His face became gloomy and terrifying as if a storm was about to come in the next second.
Mr. Qi, who was asking casually, was also stunned. He never thought that the person would be Ms. Long’s son, so he subconsciously asked, “Your biological son?”
Ms. Long didn’t seem to see the menacing Mr. Qin and said with a smile: “He is not my own, but he is better than my own.”
Then he is not her biological son. Mr. Qi was relieved. It seems that the young man should be the godson that Ms. Long recognized.
Qin Dong, who thought he finally got it right, was stunned again. And at the same time fell into a dilemma. Anyone could see that he wanted to settle accounts in the past, but he didn’t expect it to be like this being full of surprises.
Ms. Long looked at him as if she hadn’t seen him until now. It’s as if she is looking at a clown.
Qin Dong thought that she would at least say a word to him, but who knew that she just turned her head to take a look and then retracted it as if nothing had happened. It was obvious that they were sitting at the same table, but she made it seem that he was not there.
Jiang Liucheng noticed that the people around him seemed to be familiar with this scene.
Qin Lu seemed to have noticed his doubts, so he leaned over and whispered in his ear: “Do you think Chairman Qin’s status is not as high as expected?”
Jiang Liucheng nodded, “Isn’t he the chief Qin of the Qin Clan?”
Qin Lu smiled and said: “Originally, but it won’t be after I come back to inherit the family property.”
Jiang Liucheng turned his head and glanced at him, “Why?”
Qin Lu explained: “My grandfather left all the shares to me before he died, but there is one requirement for me to inherit these shares, which is to withdraw from the entertainment circle. If I don’t withdraw from the circle, I cannot officially inherit what he left. After I come back and get the inherited shares, plus my mother’s shares, I will be the largest shareholder of the Qin Corporation.”
Jiang Liucheng: “So that’s why they don’t want you to come back and inherit the family business?”
Qin Lu took advantage of the guests’ attention being attracted by the host on stage and tapped the tip of his nose: “That’s right.”
Then he gave him a popular science about the specific situation of the Qin family.
When Qin Lu was 20 years old, he decided to enter the entertainment industry and become an actor. Ms. Long and Mr. Qin did not support him, and there were even rumors that he would be deprived of his heir status several times.
Of course, these are all rumors.
No matter how old he was, Mr. Qin didn’t like him. But after he found out that Qin Lu had made his way in the entertainment industry by himself and even set up Qiming Investment Company, which became bigger in just a few years, he had no objection to Qin Lu in his heart anymore. Qin Lu was in the entertainment industry, but even Mr. Qin felt that if Qin Lu had come back earlier to inherit the Qin Group, with his ability, he might be able to make the Qin Group bigger.
As for Mr. Qin Dong, after Mr. Qin discovered that his son was becoming more and more unreliable, Mr. Qin no longer had any expectations of him. He even made a will before his death, giving Qin Lu all the assets under his name. Not even a cent was left to Qin Dong.
When the will was announced, Mr. Qin Dong made a big fuss. He didn’t believe that the old man was so cruel and thought that Ms. Long must have tampered with the will.
Naturally, it is impossible to tamper with the will. Because of this matter, Qin’s partners and other people who watched this big show all understand a fact.
Qin Dong has no real power in the Qin Group. In fact, it has only one real owner, and that is his son.
As long as his son comes back to inherit the family business, he, the old man, has to obediently hand over the position of chairman.
But Qin Dong and his illegitimate son obviously did not give up so easily, and they are still struggling until now.
“Your grandfather is really kind to you. He probably doesn’t want you to waste time fighting with Mr. Qin Dong, so he cleared the obstacles for you in what you can do.” Jiang Liucheng sighed after listening.
Qin Lu was stunned for a moment and then smiled, “Yes.”
Mr. Qin, as long as he softened his heart and gave Qin Dong some shares, Qin Dong would be able to compete with them. Thus, if Qin Lu wanted to really take over the Qin Group, he had to first pass the hurdle of shares, but he didn’t have to now.
In order to save time for his grandson and clear away the obstacles visible to the naked eye, he has no room for mercy, even for his own son.
It’s not that fast for Qin Lu to really take control of Qin’s Group, but at least he doesn’t have to worry about Qin Dong luring other shareholders to compete with him.
This is also a bit of warmth that Mr. Qin made in his will for Qin Lu, since he has always been strict with his grandson even when he was a child.
Ms. Long was close and heard the conversation between the two. At this time, she saw the smile in her son’s eyes, and his brows and eyes became more and more warmth from the coldness a few years ago. She was very grateful that her son met Jiang Liucheng.
A person’s life is not that long. She doesn’t want Qin Lu to be like her, with someone she doesn’t love. Qin Lu can have someone he likes and understands him. As his mother, he hopes Qin Lu can be happy.
With the charity party over, the dinner began to move into the networking part. This is the real vanity fair.
This is also one of the purposes of many guests who attended this party. Thus, they try their best to get invitations to the party.
Ms. Long doesn’t need the two of them to accompany her. She knows that young people don’t like to deal with a group of old men, and she is willing to pamper them, so she lets them play by themselves.
Zhou Beiwang saw the two leave the table and walked up to them under the envious gazes of other younger generations, “I was going crazy when I faced a group of old men just now, and my mother kept saying that I should learn from you. let me learn. Just in time, you guys came over as soon as she finished speaking, haha.”

Qin Lu said flatly, “Aunt Zhou is watching you.”
Zhou Beiwang looked back like a frightened bird in an instant, only to realize that he had been cheated. He then asked the passing waiter to take the glassware after drinking a glass of wine. He spoke to Qin Lu afterward. “Is it fun to lie to me?”
Qin Lu saw that there was juice on the tray, so he brought Jiang Liucheng a glass of orange juice.
Seeing how considerate he was, Zhou Bei said with distaste, “You have just won over a good cabbage plant like this. You are really good at being a matchmaker. You’re self-producing while selling.”
Qin Lu smiled: “What is self-producing while selling? I am repaying the favor I owe with my body.”
Jiang Liucheng took the orange juice. He took a sip before speaking. “Qin Lu is the good cabbage.”
Zhou Beiwang looked at him pleadingly: “Anyway, let’s go on a blind date for a few days so that I can save some face?”
Qin Lu warned: “If you say such things again, I will make you lose face even more, do you believe it?”
“I…” Zhou Beiwang dared not step on the land mine.
Qin Lu then suddenly asked: “Aren’t you going to talk to your group of friends? They’ve been looking at this side eagerly.”
Zhou Beiwang paused after hearing his words, “No. Ever since they learned that you are from the Qin family, everyone has been beating around the bush. I’m very bored as they always inquire about you. Only Dou Binbin and Tao Ding are better. Unfortunately, these two people are more unlucky, one happened to be abroad, and the other happened to be on a business trip because of some problems in the subsidiary.”
Qin Lu nodded: ” In the future, call them out so we can play together when we have time.”
Zhou Beiwang gave him a hard look, “Dou Binbin will be very happy when he hears this. There just happens to be a game in a few days. There should be no work arrangements behind Liucheng, right?”
Jiang Liucheng said: ” I have no work for the time being before Chinese New Year.”
Zhou Beiwang: “That’s better. I’ll let you guys know when the time is fixed.”
Qin Lu didn’t refuse as he just wanted to take the young people out more. “Don’t invite too many people.”
Zhou Beiwang: “Sure, this time I will only call a few familiar people.”
“Excuse me, who is Mr. Jiang?” A waiter suddenly came over. He looked at the three of them and said, “A lady asked me to give him this note.”
