Gu Ning got up when she heard that Jing Yunyao was already up.
Before she went downstairs, she heard sounds from the kitchen and knew that Jing Yunyao was preparing breakfast.
Gu Ning sped up and walked into the kitchen at once.
“Mother, please let me do it.”
I can handle it, you just need to wait outside,” said Jing Yunyao.
Gu Ning didnt insist, and walked out.
She also noticed that the scar already disappeared from Jing Yunyaos face, but it wasnt a surprising result.
Before long, breakfast was done, and Jing Yunyao took the plates out.
During breakfast, Gu Ning felt sympathy, love, and care from Jing Yunyaos eyes.
She was amused and knew why Jing Yunyao looked at her in that way.
“Mother, whats wrong” asked Gu Ning.
“Nothing.” Jing Yunyao shook her head because she didnt want to bring it up in case Gu Ning was heart-broken.
“Well, did you hear my conversation on the phone last night” asked Gu Ning.
Jing Yunyao stopped for a second, then said, “Um, yeah.”
Gu Ning nodded, and didnt look surprised.
“Do you believe that Im Tang Aining” asked Gu Ning again.
“Arent you” Jing Yunyao was surprised instead.
Actually, it was quite obvious that Gu Ning denied that she was Tang Aining.
“Of course not, Tang Aining is already dead, but she was my teacher in the past.
Im taking revenge for her and I simply want to scare her father so I used her name,” said Gu Ning.
If Gu Ning didnt explain it right now, it might cause misunderstandings.
Although Tang Aining was born again in Gu Nings body, she was Gu Ning now and she must make other people believe that.
“Oh, I understand it now,” said Jing Yunyao and felt relaxed.
After breakfast, Jing Yunyao said to Gu Ning, “Ningning, you can go to deal with your business, and I can take care of myself.”
Jing Yunyao was aware that Gu Ning stayed in order to keep her company.
She knew that Gu Ning was very kind to her, but she couldnt occupy more of Gu Nings time.
“Im free these days, and Ill leave to deal with my business if its necessary.
Please dont be worried,” said Gu Ning.
Jing Yunyao nodded.
Even though Gu Ning didnt go anywhere, she didnt pay much attention to Jing Yunyao either.
Everyone needed privacy after all.
At noon, Gu Ning received a call from Ning Changkai, who told her that Lanio, the worlds largest cosmetics company, wanted to acquire Kouzi.
The vice president of its branch in their country, Peng Zijie, always wanted to meet him, but he refused, so Peng Zijie began to threaten him and even tried to bribe him.
Lanio was a very famous cosmetics company, and it had developed activities in the field concentrating on hair color, skin care, sun protection, make-up, perfume, and hair care.
There were nine make-up brands in Lanio now, but only two of them were top brands, so Gu Ning wasnt surprised that they could attract attention from Lanio.
Kouzi grew rapidly within a very short time, and it was quite profitable too.
Gu Ning was curious what Lanio would do after acquiring it.
Anyway, she disliked coercion and bribery.
“What did he say”
“He said that hes a relative of the Yuan family in the capital.
If we dont agree, well be shut out of the capital city,” said Ning Changkai.
If Peng Zijie didnt have much influence, Ning Changkai wouldnt bother to call Gu Ning.
Knowing that, Gu Ning was unhappier.
“Very good, I want to see what he can do to us.
If he dares harass you again, give him my number and Ill deal with him in person.”
“Sure,” said Ning Changkai.
Although he was slightly worried about Gu Ning, he believed that she had the ability to solve this problem.
Peng Zijie was only a relative of the Yuan family, but Gu Ning had the support of the Leng family in the capital.
Gu Ning called K afterwards, and told him to help her find out more information about Peng Zijie, especially his relationship with the Yuan family in the capital.
She had to know her enemy very well in order to win the battle in business.
Before long, K had the result.
Peng Zijie indeed had a relationship with the Yuan family, but it wasnt close.
In other words, Peng Zijie was the Yuan familys distant relative.
Although the Peng family had chances to socialize with the Yuan family, they werent close at all.
Gu Ning found it ridiculously funny that Peng Zijie used his distant relationship with the Yuan family to put pressure on her company.
Although he held an important position in the branch of Lanio, Lanio was a foreign company after all, so it wasnt enough for him to achieve his goal by using Lanios influence.
