1437 The So-Called Connections for Interests

    Chapter 1437: The So-Called Connections for Interests

    It had already been two days since Old Mr. Mo was transferred to a normal ward and his condition had become rather stable. He was healing well after the surgery too. However, he was still unconscious and had yet to come to.

    Wen Xinya was no longer as worried about his condition as she used to be, though she was still waiting by his side and never once left the hospital despite Si Yiyan’s and Mother He’s persuasion.

    Si Yiyan’s subordinates had already unlocked the hospital, but the area where Old Mr. Mo’s ward was in was still under strict protection.

    “Wen Haowen has already found out about the entertainment city being terminated temporarily. He’s been using the excuse of being busy with work to not go see Ning Shuqian, but he’s been investigating on the entertainment city project. I’ve sent someone to cover up for him. We mustn’t let Ning Shuqian or the people from the Korean-Chinese Alliance find out.”

    Ning Shuqian and the Korean-Chinese Alliance had never taken Wen Haowen seriously because they found him to be too silly and easily manipulated. Regardless of what he did, he would often leave clues and loopholes behind. Hence, he was not in the least bit daunting at all.

    Hence, they would have never thought that Wen Haowen had already started suspecting Ning Shuqian and developing ideas about the entertainment city project.

    It gave Si Yiyan a chance to cover up for Wen Haowen.

    “You’ve made the appropriate arrangements.” The entertainment city project was controlled by the Korean-Chinese Alliance, and since Wen Haowen had sent his people to investigate on the project, the people of the Korean-Chinese Alliance would definitely be aware. By then, Ning Shuqian would discover that Wen Haowen had already begun suspecting her.

    The Korean-Chinese Alliance would also keep their guards up against Wen Haowen.

    Wen Haowen played a huge role in Plan S and they still had to make use of him. Hence, they could not afford to make any mistakes at this point.

    Wen Xinya said, “As long as our benefits and interests are concerned, we can’t belittle anyone, not even the silly Wen Haowen. It’s surprising that he did not confront Ning Shuqian directly after finding out about the temporary termination of the entertainment city project. It’s rare of him to be able to stay patient.”

    Wen Xinya naturally did not expect that Wen Haowen managed to control his temper and stay patient because Ning Shuqian thought that she had already exposed herself. Hence, she aroused Wen Haowen’s suspicion before he could even question her.

    “Xinya, do you remember the reminder I gave you about people like Wen Haowen being the most daunting? He’s overly ambitious yet incompetent and conceited. He’s also very paranoid and suspecting of others. He’s vicious, evil, immoral, unethical and a little too extreme. Once provoked, he would do anything. He’s just like a ticking time bomb that’s not to be belittled.”

    It was a reminder that Si Yiyan gave her when he called her after her coming-of-age ceremony.

    Wen Xinya nodded and said, “Of course I do. I’ve always been wary of Wen Haowen. However, it’s a good thing that he could stay patient this time. We can make use of the termination of the entertainment city project to sow discord between Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian. We’ll make Wen Haowen grow suspicions of Ning Shuqian so that there’ll be more trouble for the entertainment city project!”

    Wen Haowen was overtly ambitious yet incompetent and conceited. She was making use of his paranoia to make him suspect Ning Shuqian, so as to make the Korean-Chinese Alliance strip Wen Haowen of his rights to control the entertainment city project. Wen Haowen had been allowing Ning Shuqian to be in charge of it because she had earned his trust. It could be said that the two of them were the core personnel of the entertainment city project. If they were to fall out with each other, the project would definitely not be able to proceed smoothly!

    Then, they would have the chance to take advantage!

    Si Yiyan said, “Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian have established a strong relationship because of the entertainment city project and it’s not that easy to turn them against each other. After all… they need each other for the project.”

    Ning Shuqian relied on the support of the Korean-Chinese Alliance to get close to the Zhang Corporation. Hence, Wen Haowen would need Ning Shuqian to get closer to the Zhang Corporation, so as to complete the project as soon as possible.

    Ning Shuqian was being controlled by the Korean-Chinese Alliance which instigated her to manipulate Wen Haowen and take charge of the entertainment city project. In order to carry it out and complete it without arousing suspicions, she would still need Wen Haowen to cover up for her.

    Wen Haowen would perhaps begin suspecting Ning Shuqian and keeping his guard up against her, but so what? That was the case in a relationship where interests were involved. The two parties would definitely suspect each other but still stand on the same line for the sake of interests. Such situations were way too common.

    Wen Xinya sneered coldly. “Strong relationship? Yan… you’ve really overestimated them. They’ve never had a strong and unbreakable bond. They’re at most in cahoots with each other!”

    Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian’s interest-related relationship was strong but… so what? It was only strong on the condition that they did not have conflicting interests. Things would change greatly once there were cracks in their relationship.

    The two of them were just making use of each other.

    However, how strong could their relationship be?

    Wen Xinya felt that it was actually very fragile.

    Wen Haowen had his own selfish interests and agenda, and that was to encroach on the entire Wen Corporation. He wouldn’t mind turning against Old Mr. Wen and harming his own daughter. Clearly, he was extremely greedy and heartless.

    Ning Shuqian seemed to be helping Wen Haowen on the surface, but she was in fact just ruining everything that Wen Haowen was coveting. That alone, was actually already a conflict.

    Once he began suspecting her, it would be hard to resolve the matter.

    Si Yiyan said calmly, “Don’t you forget that there’s still the Korean-Chinese Alliance!”

    As long as the Korean-Chinese Alliance was present, the two of them would definitely be strung together and work with each other for the sake of interests.

    Wen Xinya said, “The Korean-Chinese Alliance can’t control everything. There are times when they can’t take charge too.”

    Si Yiyan said with raised brows, “You seem to be very confident.”

    Wen Xinya chuckled and said, “Well, we’ve just gotten some news from a pawn we planted. This will become my greatest trump card in ruining the relationship and cooperation between Wen Haowen and Ning Shuqian.”
