I Started As A Novel Villain - Chapter 183
Chen Luo had an extraordinary gleam in his eyes.
The same is true for Duan Qizheng.
But as he watched the two of them worry to their cores, Li Xiangyun’s eyes brightened.
Li Xiangyun was fully aware that he was Ye Fei’s subordinate, and, to put it another way, he was Ye Fei’s dog.
However, he realized that as long as he is faithful to Ye Fei, he can command and lead the Qizheng Group, and this was especially true now that he had complete authority.
Although Li Xiangyun’s reputation for messing around has tarnished his character, he is a smart man who recognizes that by following Ye Fei, he can maximize his gains.
“Chairman Duan, oh wait, following our board of directors’ proposal, you will no longer be the chairman,” Li Xiangyun scoffed arrogantly.
Duan Qizheng was quivering with rage and violence as he heard those words; while his share in the company is not insignificant, it is not as large as Ye Fei’s.
The shares acquired by Yang Fund, together with those of the corporation and other top executives, are equal to or more than Duan Qizheng’s.
Chen Luo’s entire body felt chilly as he observed this scene.
Only then did Chen Luo realize that all of this had been calculated by Ye Fei.
From the outbreak of the poison capsule incident to the drop in the Qizheng Group’s share price, Ye Fei took advantage of the chance to get a significant number of their shares while covertly coercing the Qizheng Group’s senior executives to then meticulously arrange the situation occurring now!
Duan Qizheng is ultimately compelled to resign from his job, and Chen Luo’s fate is far worse.
Originally, while Duan Qizheng still had authority, he made an unprecedented praise and promoted Chen Luo, which caused the Qizheng group to be heavily repressed.
Now that he was no longer chairman, Chen Luo lost his patron, and there was no turning back now.
Knowing this, Duan Qizheng slammed the door and bolted as the board of directors’ vote results were announced.
Chen Luo, who was equally glum and irritated, was about to leave the office.
“Vice President Chen, please wait a moment,” Li Xiangyun said, smiling.
Chen Luo would have instantly retaliated against Li Xiangyun if it hadn’t been for the board of directors and social conventions.
“Vice President Chen, Young Master Ye has ordered me to deliver a message,” Li Xiangyun answered bravely, with a frigid tone buried in his words, despite that Chen Luo’s strength can easily subdue him.
Chen Luo’s eyes lit up with rage as he heard Ye Fei’s name, and he replied solemnly, “What did he say?.”
“It is, ‘Don’t worry, Vice President Chen, the game has just started’.”
When Chen Luo heard these remarks, the fury in his eyes seemed to flare, and he snorted loudly, clenched his fists, turned around, and walked away.
Both Chen Luo and Duan Qizheng were like grieving dogs at this point, and the conference room was left in an intense mood.
The footsteps of these two people were heavy and packed with vigor.
Li Xiangyun finally breathed a sigh of relief in the conference room when Duan Qizheng and Chen Luo left, then he quickly contacted Ye Fei and expressed his loyal attitude while explaining the situation respectfully.
At this point, Ye Fei received a call from Li Xiangyun and discovered that the Qizheng Group’s troubles had been handled, prompting his lips to smile.
With the change of chairman in Qizheng Group now, Chen Luo would become much more miserable in Yanjing. Because of this, the wealthy families on which he could rely were becoming increasingly scarce.
In contrast, while the other affluent families in Yanjing owe favors to Chen Luo’s Master, they would only have a cordial attitude toward Chen Luo, and with Duan Qizheng, who now has nothing, the respect and civility shown will be dramatically different.
Chen Luo’s ‘vitality’ has drastically diminished now that the Qizheng Group is under Ye Fei’s control.
As soon as he hanged up the phone, Ye Fei was in a good mood
At the time, Ye Fei was working at Brilliant Entertainment and devising a strategy for the company’s significant development path in order to become the world’s entertainment monopoly.
Although Ye Fei is the first successor to the Ye Group and has plenty of money, he has had this ambition for a long time and desires to establish his own influence in the city.
Brilliant Entertainment, his own firm, was the first step in developing his forces, becoming a solo leader, and separating himself from the Ye family.
Ye Fei’s revenue is primarily derived from two sources. The first is the revenue from the Bingji Jade Bee Water. This portion of the income is substantial, culminating in Ye Fei earning hundreds of millions of yuan.
In addition the second source comes from the company’s income from Brilliant Entertainment.
However, Ye Fei was dissatisfied with the amount of money Brilliant Entertainment was generating.
His underlying aims and aspirations are to develop an entertainment empire centered on the industry’s influence and to produce numerous domestic entertainment products in order to establish himself as the godfather of the entertainment industry.
And because Ye Fei could rely on Lin Yufan’s laptop, which had recorded innumerable classic movies, TV series, popular catchy songs, and coupled with the background of Brilliant Entertainment, achieving this goal was not difficult.
He had already started his grand entertainment plan, since before Ye Fei had instructed Zhang Minle to begin nurturing future celebrities like Lu Lingyun.
Ye Fei had written and given her two songs. And with that gift, it made her extremely happy, and these two songs have since been included in Lu Lingyun’s latest album.
Furthermore, the album’s title sparked a surge of attention due to how different and unusual it was.
Ye Fei did not provide these songs to Lu Lingyun for free.
Now that she became a popular female singer from the two songs he gave her, Ye Fei can rely on the copyright fees to make tons of money.
This time, Ye Fei came to Brilliant Entertainment, but he didn’t have time to waste since the prospect of establishing an entertainment monopoly was etched in his memory, so immediately when he saw Zhang Minle, he took out a movie script and presented it to him.
When Zhang Minle saw Ye Fei show him a lengthy script, he was puzzled and inquired, “What is this?”
“Take a look at it. This is a script. I intend to begin filming with the company. The movie should sell incredibly well now that the Qizheng Group’s poison pill scandal has died down,” Ye Fei remarked nonchalantly.
Zhang Minle looked at the script of the movie titled “I’m Not the God of Medicine”, and was immediately taken aback.
Then he attentively examined the script, and while he was initially perplexed, his attitude changed to one of excitement, “President Ye, did you write this script yourself? This is incredible!.”
The script of “I’m Not the God of Medicine” has obviously shocked Zhang Minle.
“Find a reliable director, investment is not an issue, and start shooting the movie as soon as possible,” Ye Fei stated mysteriously, “and also, if a problem arises, please contact me right away.”
“Good. Good!,” Zhang Minle nodded and promised, “Don’t worry, President Ye; I won’t rush and ruin the movie’s quality. I also promise that this film will be a box office success, and that our reputation will increase.”
“That’s fine.” Ye Fei didn’t suspect that Zhang Minle’s words were false.
Because “I’m Not the God of Medicine,” this movie was popular all throughout the country in his former life, grossing more than 3 billion yuan at the box office. And, as a result of the poison pill incident, people have grown increasingly concerned about drug safety issues, so the movie is certain to be significant and receive a lot of attention.
At that time, the movie will have a very positive impact on Yanjing’s medicine industry as a whole!
(T/L: “I’m Not the God of Medicine” is a film about pharmaceuticals that raises several ethical questions: Will you take the risk of profiting by selling illegal drugs to poor end communities, or will you help and expose those selfish drug companies? Even if you do help, how will it change when you yourself are buying those illegal drugs to save someone you love who is bedridden?. [In my opinion, it’s a really good film])
Then, Ye Fei gave Zhang Minle a few instructions before sending him to approach a director with an enthusiastic expression.
Ye Fei didn’t want to get involved with the company’s activities, so he drove his car to pick up Luo Weiyu from the flower store with the remainder of his day.
