3455 Suspicious of One Another
Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming reported the result to Old Master Tang.
Two days later, Old Master Tang appeared at the Tang Corporation with Leng Xiaoyao and two bodyguards.
Li Mochen wanted to follow them, but Leng Xiaoyao thought that it was inappropriate and declined.
She was a cultivator, after all, and could handle ordinary people. Moreover, she had evidence and had even contacted the police.
Li Mochen knew that Leng Xiaoyao could handle it, but he just wanted to help. Since Leng Xiaoyao didn’t need him, he told her to let him know if she needed any help.
When Old Master Tang appeared, everyone in the Tang Corporation was surprised.
However, the common employees and shareholders didn’t think much of it since they weren’t involved in the power struggles.
They even preferred Old Master Tang to manage the company instead of Tang Lei, who was just Old Master Tang’s adopted son and managed the company illegitimately.
Secretly, there were many people who suspected that the accident Tang Heng and his wife had suffered had something to do with Tang Lei, so most of them didn’t like him.
Although many people didn’t like Tang Lei, they couldn’t do anything about who managed the Tang Corporation. They didn’t care about it since it didn’t affect them.
If they had a choice, they would rather have Old Master Tang in charge of the Tang Corporation. After all, most of them had worked in the Tang Corporation for many years and knew what kind of person Old Master Tang was.
“Chairman Tang, you’re awake!”
“Chairman Tang, we’ve all been waiting for today!”
“Chairman Tang, we’re so happy that you’re finally awake.”
Everyone expressed their congratulations and welcomed the return of Old Master Tang
Old Master Tang smiled kindly at everyone and said, “Yeah, I’m back. Thank you for your concern. You’ve worked hard all these years. After I’ve settled things, I’ll organize a dinner party and give out red envelopes to you all.”
This was the time to win people’s hearts, so he needed to act generously.
Everyone was happy to hear the news.
At this time, the company was holding a shareholders meeting, so everyone was present. They chose this time to come because it was easier to get things done when everyone was present.
Because Tang Lei had always looked down on the lower levels, there was no one on his side. Even when Old Master Tang and the others came, no one informed him.
Anyway, whether he was informed or not, the result was the same, so it didn’t make much of a difference.
Old Master Tang’s face was his pass, and he easily made his way to the meeting room.
Tang Kangwei was on one side, Tang Lei was on another, while Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming were on the third side.
Tang Lei suspected that Old Master Tang’s disappearance was related to Xiang Kaiyao, He Ming, or Tang Kangwei, while Tang Kangwei suspected that it was related to Tang Lei or Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming.
Only Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming, who knew the truth, didn’t suspect anyone.
Accordingly, in the meeting room, the three sides were arguing endlessly.
Although the shareholders who supported Tang Lei knew the truth, they pretended that they didn’t know until Old Master Tang appeared.
“Tang Lei, you said that my elder brother’s disappearance has nothing to do with you. Who would believe you? Among the Tang family, you are the one who doesn’t want my elder brother to come back. Because once he does, you won’t be able to keep your position.” Tang Kangwei questioned him.
Although he didn’t want Old Master Tang to come back either because he wanted to be the chairman himself, he still preferred Old Master Tang’s return over letting Tang Lei become the chairman.
Old Master Tang was already old and couldn’t manage the company for too long, while Tang Xing was still too young and had no ability to be the manager. Therefore, in the end, it was most likely to fall on him.
He was only fifty years old this year and still had the energy to work. Even if he couldn’t do it any longer, he had his son!
His son would graduate from college in a year and had some ability in business. After a few years of training, he would definitely be able to manage the Tang Corporation.
However, Tang Lei was only thirty-five years old. If he secured this position, it would be more difficult for them to take it back.
“Uncle, what do you mean by that? Old Master Tang is my father. Why don’t I want him to come back? Besides, this company is originally owned by my father, so it’s only reasonable for him to come back to take charge.” Tang Lei retorted angrily, with a righteous expression. However, it was just an act.
As long as you weren’t a fool, it was impossible to expose your true colors.
“Oh! He is your father, but he isn’t your biological father. Who knows what you are thinking? Ever since you joined my elder brother’s house, there have been accidents happening one after another. First Tang Yue disappeared, then Tang Fei drowned, and then it was my sister-in-law who died of illness. Three years ago, my elder brother also became a vegetable in a car accident. Not long after that, Tang Heng and his wife were burned to death. I think it’s clear that you want to kill everyone in my elder brother’s family in order to steal his property.” Tang Kangwei accused. It was what he had always suspected and investigated, but there was no evidence.
He investigated all of these cases, naturally not to avenge his eldest brother’s family, but to bring down Tang Lei
Tang Lei was so angry that he stood up abruptly with a “Pa” sound and yelled at Tang Kangwei, “How dare you…”
He seemed to be wronged by Tang Kangwei.
“Uncle, I’m your nephew. How can you wrong me so much? If I did all of these things, would I still be sitting here?” Tang Lei asked.
It sounded reasonable, but what was false was ultimately false. Tang Lei didn’t have such a strong psychological quality after all, so he still revealed some guilty conscience.
Tang Kangwei narrowed his eyes slightly in annoyance. “I have to admire you for doing so many things without leaving any evidence.”
“If I didn’t do them, of course there wouldn’t be any evidence. If you suspect me like this, then I can also suspect you. Isn’t all of this because you want to take over Old Master Tang’s property? Then it will be my turn next. Once you get rid of me, the Tang Corporation will be in your hands!” Tang Lei argued.
Upon hearing that, a shareholder who supported Tang Kangwei also had doubts because they knew that Tang Kangwei did want to take over the Tang Corporation, so this wasn’t an impossible thing.
However, those who knew the truth wouldn’t doubt Tang Kangwei.
Being questioned like that, Tang Kangwei didn’t have as big of a reaction as Tang Lei did. He just sneered. “The wheels of justice turn slowly but surely. It’s not that justice won’t come. It’s just late.”
