Chapter 817: You Can’t Compare To My Wife
Qiao Xi sat on the sofa and said confidently, “I’m not bragging, but they won’t be able to surpass me even if they study the craft for another two to three years. After all, not everyone has talent!”
Song Shiyu: “…” ‘Yes, yes, yes, you’re the best!’
Then, Qiao Xi lazily leaned against the sofa and blinked at Gu Zheng. “Ah Zheng, are you willing to put my designs into production?”
Gu Zheng remained calm. “Of course. It’s my honor that you’re going to design and package the company’s new perfume, Mrs. Gu. So no matter what you design, I’ll use it.”
Song Shiyu quickly handed the laptop to Qiao Xi and accidentally touched her finger. “Young Madam, my brother just sent me the other works from the exchange meet. They’re not as good as yours. Your work is the most perfect!”
Gu Zheng frowned. “Song Shiyu, do you not want your hand anymore?”
After the president’s reminder, Song Shiyu realized that he had accidentally touched Young Madam’s finger just now, but he did not do it on purpose. He had only touched her nail. Was the president going to chop off his hand because of this?
What a jealous man!
An hour later, the perfume exchange was about to end. Everyone was anxiously waiting for the results to be announced. However, everyone knew that the first two companies were definitely Gu Corporation and Lu Corporation.
Gu Corporation had taken first place for five consecutive years. Gu Zheng’s strength could be said to be unparalleled, but Lu Corporation was not to be trifled with. They came prepared this time.
“I heard that the Lu family has poached veteran perfumers from Gu Corporation. Now that the Gu family doesn’t have any good perfumers, they can only use new people for the time being.”
“Not only that, but the Lu family even invited Sally to personally make the perfumes. They’re also using Han Ye’s paintings as the packaging…” At the mention of Han Ye, the person could not help but be stunned for a moment. “Speaking of which, has the Lu family obtained Han Ye’s authorization? After all, that person…”
“Since the Lu family has already decided to enter production, they must have already solved the copyright problem. With the packaging and fragrance combined, the Lu family will definitely be the champion this time!”
On the other hand, Xia Mengyan happened to meet Qiao Xi and Gu Zheng when she went out. She immediately chased after them. “Xi Xi!”
Qiao Xi pretended not to hear her and continued walking forward.
Xia Mengyan quickly caught up to her and said with a smile, “Xi Xi, I really didn’t expect you to participate in Gu Corporation’s perfume design as well. However, friendship comes first and competitions come second. Don’t let this competition affect our relationship.”
Before Qiao Xi could say anything, she saw Gu Zheng’s expression turn cold. “Miss Xia, I can tell you clearly that be it in terms of design or perfumes, you can’t compare to my wife.”
The smile on Xia Mengyan’s face vanished instantly. She said aggrievedly, “Ah Zheng… President Gu, we were childhood playmates, after all. Why are you so cold to me? Although I’m not an international top perfumer, I’m still famous in the industry. I wonder if Xi Xi is also a perfumer? How can you be so sure that I’m inferior to her?”
Qiao Xi was extremely annoyed. Was there something wrong with the Xia family’s brains? Previously, there was Xia Yunlou, and now, there was Xia Mengyan. All of them annoyed her.
She thought that Gu Zheng would ignore Xia Mengyan, but Gu Zheng looked up indifferently and said slowly, “Miss Xia.”
Xia Mengyan suddenly looked up, her eyes filled with anticipation and urgency. “President Gu…”
“The Lu family poached a few experienced perfumers from Gu Corporation. They all participated in the research and development of Lu Corporation’s new perfumes. In other words, Miss Xia didn’t complete the research and development of the perfumes alone, but you’re letting everyone think that you developed the new products yourself. Isn’t that too selfish of you?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Gu Zheng walked to the car and opened the door. He invited Qiao Xi to get in like a gentleman. Before he got in, he even glanced meaningfully at Lu Yan, who was not far away.
Xia Mengyan watched the car slowly drive away and bit her lip. Lu Yan walked over. “What’s the use of being sad here? You need to be smart to get someone!”
Hearing Lu Yan’s words, Xia Mengyan gritted her teeth in anger. “I’ve known him since we were young, but he ended up marrying that woman, Qiao Xi. If I hadn’t signed a contract with your Lu family, he wouldn’t be so cold to me!”
“Miss Xia, do you mean to say that you blame me? Back then, you agreed to sign the contract to return to the country and develop your career. You wanted to quickly make a name for yourself. You don’t have to make yourself sound so aggrieved.” Lu Yan was unhappy.
