Chapter 524: Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining
Hence, Yang Ming refused Wu Zhongjie with a few words, told him that he had something to do and he was busy. Wu Zhongjie wasn’t happy, saying that Yang Ming didn’t fulfill his promise. He wanted to call Lin Zhiyun to complain.
Yang Ming was happy. He handed his phone to Lin Zhiyun beside him, letting Wu Zhongjie complain. Wu Zhongjie had no other way to go about it. He also knew that Yang Ming really had something to do and he had to give up.
On the other hand, he came to his father’s company to look into the employment of Yang Ming as a tutor today. However, Wu Zhongjie’s father, Wu Fugui, was very busy today. After listening to Wu Zhongjie’s words, he waved his hand and asked the secretary to deposit fifty thousand yuan into his credit card. Then he said, “I have given the money to you. Go find him yourself.”
“I don’t want any money. Do you do things for me just like that?” Wu Zhongjie looked a little unhappy.
“I’m so busy every day. Isn’t it to give you a family business in the future?” Wu Fugui said impatiently, “Alright, just go and play by yourself.”
“This is what you said. Next time, if I place last in the class, you’d better not be angry.” Wu Zhongjie said faintly.
“What happened to you, kid?” Wu Fugui frowned. “I can’t find the person you asked me to look for. I’m busy all day. How can I have the time to find the individual you’re talking about?”
Although Wu Fugui loved his son, he didn’t show much concern for him. Most of it was materialistic. Anything his son wanted to buy, with just one sentence, he would buy it no matter how much it was! No matter how much it was, he wasn’t hesitant to give! Ten thousand yuan or even a hundred thousand yuan, he wouldn’t even frown at. But now that his son asked him to do something very troublesome, he was a little impatient.
It wasn’t that he didn’t ask around before. He delegated his secretary to find several tutoring centers, and yet he couldn’t get in contact with the college student named Yang Ming. In his opinion, what was the difference? If he couldn’t find the guy, he could change to another person. Can I still not get a good tutor if I’m willing to spend?
“Well, don’t regret it later!” Wu Zhongjie was annoyed. My father, when I see him, he only knows to give me money. Besides that, he only asks for my academic performance. He asked nothing about my private life.
“This child!” Wu Fugui shook his head, but he didn’t take it seriously. In his view, he had already given his son a lot of money and it was his care and love toward him.
Wu Zhongjie stomped out of his father’s office…
Yang Ming and Zhang Bing came to the headquarters of Xinheng Real Estate Company and were directly stopped by the lady at the front desk.
“Excuse me. Who are you looking for?” Although the question was polite, it was solemn. There was a sense of pressure as a big company.
But, what kind of people hadn’t Yang Ming seen before? He didn’t make a fool out of himself in front of the world’s top tier King of the Assassins, let alone a front desk lady. However, Zhang Bing was different. Seeing people asking in such formal words, he became incoherent abruptly.
“Hello, we’re here to buy a property.” Yang Ming said without rushing it.
“Buying a property? Sorry, sir, we don’t sell property directly. There are sales offices for each property. If you have your eyes on a property, I will tell you the phone number of the sales office.” The front desk lady said.
“We aren’t interested in a residential property, but we want to buy a retail property.” Yang Ming explained.
“Business centers are also sold together at the sales office. Which business center caught your interest?” asked the front desk lady.
“No, the place we’re interested in is a retail property at the business street. It was originally the sales office of your company. It’s empty now. I want to buy it.” Yang Ming shook his head and explained.
“You want to buy a sales office?” The front desk lady gazed at Yang Ming out of doubt and said, “I haven’t encountered such a request before, so please wait a moment. I will check with our manager in charge.”
Yang Ming nodded and the front desk lady started to make a call. After a while, the front desk lady said, “Please wait a moment. Our sales staff will come over to meet with you. You can take a break on the sofa first.”
Not long after, a slim and tall man came out of the elevator. Then, he approached Yang Ming after talking to the front desk lady.
“Hello, I’m the deputy manager of the sales department. My surname is Wang.” The slim and tall man introduced himself.
Yang Ming quickly stood up and shook hands with him. Then, two of them sat side by side on the sofa at the reception desk.
“Hello, Manager Wang, the front desk lady of your company should have already told you. We’re interested in buying a sales office in your company.” Yang Ming was straight to the point.
” En , let’s talk about the specifics. Which sales office you want to buy?” Deputy Manager Wang nodded and asked.
“What we’re looking at is the sales office at the business street, the one with two stories.” Yang Ming said.
“That one, I understand.” Deputy Manager Wang frowned. “There is no plan to sell this sales office yet. The location of the retail property should have other uses.”
“I see…” Yang Ming couldn’t help but be disappointed. However, if they didn’t want to sell, how can I force them to sell it?
“How about the two of you leave your phone number first? I will contact you after I ask about it.” Deputy Manager Wang said.
When Yang Ming heard the tone of Deputy Manager Wang, he knew that things couldn’t be done. He asked me to leave contact information out of courtesy. The hope seems to be slim.
“Deputy Manager Wang, how about you ask about it now? We’re really sincere about buying it. The price is negotiable.” Yang Ming was really interested in the location of the store. The price didn’t matter. After all, it was a one-time investment.
“Well then…” Deputy Manager Wang hesitated. He also knew that if the place was really sold, the price would have to be ten million yuan. His own commission would definitely be indispensable.
Therefore, Deputy Manager Wang directly called his boss, the sales manager. But, the sales manager couldn’t make the call, so he called the chairman of Xinheng.
After a while, the secretary transferred his call, and Deputy Manager Wang was in contact with the chairman of the company.
“President Wu, I’m Xiao Wang of the sales department…” Deputy Manager Wang said.
” En , what’s the matter?” Wu Fugui asked straightforwardly.
“It is like this. There is a customer who wants to buy the sales office on the business street. Should we sell it?” Deputy Manager Wang asked.
“Sales office?” Wu Fugui frowned. “Isn’t that the one we haven’t priced yet? Even if it’s sold, it’s going to be negotiated after the meeting. Besides, isn’t there another real estate property to sell in the vicinity? Can’t we sell that first?”
” Oh , I understand, President Wu.” Deputy Manager Wang noticed that the chairman didn’t have the intention to sell, so he gave up with the inquiry. Although he had to watch a large sum of money drifting away from his eyes, there was no way to go about it.
Hanging up the phone, Deputy Manager Wang shrugged, “Sorry, gentleman. I have kept you waiting. Our chairman has no intention of selling for a while…”
“Well, sorry for the bother.” Yang Ming nodded, knowing that it would be useless to talk to Deputy Manager Wang. He was a small character who couldn’t change the decision of the upper level.
Yang Ming was now pondering whether he should let Hou Zhenhan handle it. But now Yang Ming wanted to do a legitimate business. He didn’t want to use some shady tactics.
If it was only to build a relationship, it should be fine. If it was coercive, then it wouldn’t be necessary.
Yang Ming and Zhang Bing wanted to get up and leave, but they suddenly heard a familiar voice behind them, “Brother Yang…”
Yang Ming turned his head around and saw Wu Zhongjie screaming at him. Wu Zhongjie had a depressed expression, yet he couldn’t conceal his surprise and ran toward him, “Brother Yang, why are you here?”
“I’m here for business. But, how about you? Why are you here?” Yang Ming asked curiously.
“Don’t mention it…” Wu Zhongjie shook his head. “Yes, Brother Yang, what are you doing here? Can I help?”
” Hehe , I’m interested in a commercial building. It’s a property of the Xinheng Real Estate Company, but they don’t seem to have plans to sell it.” Yang Ming smiled and shook his head and said, “What’s the use of asking so many questions?”
“Where is it? I can ask for you.” Wu Zhongjie asked indifferently in a carefree manner.
Yang Ming didn’t care about it, but the Deputy Manager Wang standing by the side had already widened his eyes with his heart full of surprise. He naturally knew of Wu Zhongjie’s identity, but he didn’t expect Yang Ming and Wu Zhongjie to actually know each other. It seemed that their relationship was great!
That’s strange. Why did Yang Ming not mention that he knew the son of the chairman himself? But he also knew that it was no place for him to interfere. He was just watching respectfully.
