Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School - Chapter 3454
Chapter 3454 Betray
Leng Xiaoyao didn’t ask Old Master Tang to call directly, instead she made a call to Xiang Kaiyao first. She wanted to confirm if it was convenient to talk on his side.
If he heard Tang Kangquan’s voice and got too excited, it wouldn’t be good.
Besides, she suspected that Tang Lei wasn’t only spying on her family, but also those people related to Old Master Tang. After all, only someone known and trusted by Old Master Tang could take him away.
Old Master Tang wasn’t a fool. He wouldn’t just leave with anyone!
However, Old Master Tang did leave with Leng Xiaoyao, whom he met for the first time. Even though she was his granddaughter, it was their first meeting after all.
If Leng Xiaoyao didn’t closely resemble Tang Yue, Old Master Tang might not have followed her so easily.
Xiang Kaiyao answered the call. “Hello, this is Xiang Kaiyao. Who is that?”
Leng Xiaoyao asked, “Hello, Director Xiang, I have something very important to discuss with you. I wonder if it’s convenient for you to talk right now.”
“Just a moment please.” As soon as Xiang Kaiyao heard that she had something important to discuss, he immediately got up and went back to his study.
Although he didn’t know who she was, since there was something important to discuss, he naturally wanted to listen clearly.
After arriving at the study, Xiang Kaiyao asked, “Now it’s convenient. You can go ahead.”
“Do you know that Old Master Tang has woken up?” Leng Xiaoyao asked, but she knew that Xiang Kaiyao probably didn’t know yet.
“What? He has woken up?” Xiang Kaiyao was surprised and became somewhat excited.
“Yes, it happened three days ago. Tang Lei knew the next day. Didn’t he tell you?” Leng Xiaoyao said.
“Huh!” Upon hearing that, Xiang Kaiyao sneered. “How could he possibly tell us! He probably wishes that we don’t know!”
Although he didn’t know what Tang Lei had done to the Tang family, he doubted Tang Lei in regard to what had happened to Old Master Tang and Tang Heng and his wife. It was not only him, all the shareholders were suspicious of Tang Lei, they just had no evidence.
Realizing that he had said something he shouldn’t have, Xiang Kaiyao became cautious immediately and asked, “Who’s that? How do you know that Old Master Tang has woken up?”
Because Xiang Kaiyao was someone trusted by Old Master Tang and Leng Xiaoyao had checked on him, he was indeed a person without any problems. So Leng Xiaoyao didn’t hide anything. “I’m someone sent by Old Master Tang to contact you and He Ming.”
“What? Where is Old Master Tang right now?” Xiang Kaiyao asked eagerly upon hearing that.
“He is at my place. Not only him, but also his grandson Tang Xing and granddaughter Tang Ning,” Leng Xiaoyao said.
“What’s your relationship with him? Why should I believe what you’re saying?” Xiang Kaiyao asked. He didn’t know whether he should trust Leng Xiaoyao or not.
Perhaps Old Master Tang had really woken up and disappeared, but was not at Leng Xiaoyao’s place. Maybe Tang Lei couldn’t find Old Master Tang and intentionally had someone call him to test if he was with him!
“Just wait a moment.” After saying that, Leng Xiaoyao handed the phone to Old Master Tang.
Old Master Tang continued the conversation. “Kaiyao, it’s me.”
“Uncle Tang…” Hearing the familiar voice, Xiang Kaiyao became excited and believed it.
Although he hadn’t heard Old Master Tang’s voice for three years, he could recognize it right away.
“You… Are you really awake?” Xiang Kaiyao asked, not out of doubt, but just wanting to confirm.
“Yes! I’m awake, and I have gathered a lot of evidence about Tang Lei’s crimes. Now I plan to remove him from his position and send him to prison. Will you support me?” Old Master Tang asked.
Although 50% of the shares were still under his name, it wouldn’t be easy for him to stabilize his position in the Tang Corporation if he was isolated without support.
Moreover, at his current age, he was certainly getting older and might feel incapable of managing the company. Therefore, he needed support even more.
In fact, he planned to turn those who supported Tang Lei against him and make them support him instead.
“Of course I will…” Xiang Kaiyao quickly responded. The Tang Corporation originally belonged to Old Master Tang, and his loyalty was also to Old Master Tang. It was impossible for him not to support Old Master Tang.
“Great, next I’ll call He Ming. If he will support me too, I want you to help me win over Tang Lei’s supporters.” said Old Master Tang.
“No problem, got it.” replied Xiang Kaiyao.
The method of contacting He Ming was the same as contacting Xiang Kaiyao. First, Leng Xiaoyao made the call to confirm that He Ming was available to talk before passing the phone to Old Master Tang.
He Ming was very willing to support Old Master Tang.
Therefore, the next day, Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming began to win over Tang Lei’s supporters.
In fact, they only supported Tang Lei because they wanted to gain more benefits from the Tang Corporation. When they learned that Old Master Tang had woken up and had a lot of evidence of Tang Lei’s crimes, they all naturally switched sides.
As for those who supported Tang Kangwei, they didn’t try to persuade them. After all, those people had already sided with Tang Kangwei when Old Master Tang was in charge of the Tang Corporation.
Tang Lei found out that Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming had contacted his supporters and immediately called them in for questioning.
“Why did Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming contact you?” Tang Lei felt very uneasy and thought that Old Master Tang might have met them, so they might be plotting something.
“Director Xiang told us that Old Master Tang has woken up but is missing, so he came to ask us if you have hidden him away,” said one of the directors. This was what Xiang Kaiyao and He Ming had convinced them to say when Tang Lei questioned them.
Then the director asked, “Chairman Tang, did Old Master Tang really wake up?”
Since they already knew, Tang Lei could no longer hide it. “Yes, he woke up, but I don’t know where he is now.”
Although the director was still somewhat skeptical of Xiang Kaiyao’s words, after hearing Tang Lei’s admission, he believed it and became even more determined to switch sides.
Nevertheless, in order to not expose themselves, they still asked worriedly, “What if Old Chairman Tang comes back?”
The shareholders who supported Tang Lei didn’t know that it was Tang Lei who had harmed Old Master Tang and Tang Heng and his wife, but they were suspicious.
Despite that, they still chose to support Tang Lei because he had given them many benefits.
That was before today.
“So the most urgent thing now is to find Old Chairman Tang first.” Tang Lei said, “You guys should also look for him and inform me immediately when you find him.”
“Sure.” Those shareholders replied.
It was unclear whether Tang Lei was too confident or whether he trusted these shareholders too much. He didn’t suspect that they were fooling him and that they had already switched sides.
