Chapter 1000: Seizing Power

“Is it you guys? Have you joined forces with the Guan family?” Qian Tong questioned with a penetrating gaze.

Gu Lin immediately asserted his innocence, saying, “Don’t make baseless accusations! Don’t act like a dog for too long; you might forget how to be human. Slander can land you in jail.”

Gu Qing intervened, advising, “Qian Tong, there’s no benefit in following Gu Chen. Don’t you know why Gu Chen calls all his assistants Qian Tong?”

Seeing Qian Tong’s puzzled expression, Gu Qing seemed to pity him, shaking his head as he explained, “Back then, Gu Chen was betrayed by his first assistant named Qian Tong. Both his legs were broken. Since then, all his assistants have been called Qian Tong. Do you know where those previous assistants went?”

Qian Tong’s face was filled with confusion.

Gu Lin mocked, “Looks like you really know nothing. How pitiful! Let me enlighten you. Those Qian Tong before you all had their legs broken, succumbing to the agonizing pain. Oh, you have no idea—their kneecaps were crushed into powder. It was brutal and bloody!”

Qian Tong’s eyes widened in disbelief, realizing that his predecessors had surely suffered, given the mission’s failure.

Yet, he never imagined they would meet such a gruesome end.

Seeing Qian Tong’s softened expression, Gu Qing tried to persuade him, “Qian Tong, let us in. We’ll obtain evidence against Gu Chen and make sure he rots in jail. Then, you’ll be free, won’t you?”

Gu Qing and Gu Lin’s men were no match for Gu Chen’s. If a fight broke out, they might suffer heavy losses.

If they could sway Qian Tong to betray Gu Chen, perhaps they could effortlessly get their hands on all of Gu Chen’s leverage, enough to lock him away for a long time.

After all, leaders of every financial group weren’t squeaky clean.

They could then seize control of the financial group while Gu Chen was absent from the Gu Group.

Qian Tong looked at Gu Qing and Gu Lin, struggling with conflicting emotions, while those around him watched.

Gu Qing and Gu Lin weren’t in a hurry since Gu Chen wouldn’t return so soon.

When Qian Tong finally nodded and had his men step aside, Gu Qing and Gu Lin immediately rejoiced, surprised at how easily they had turned him.

Gu Lin stepped forward and patted Qian Tong on the shoulder, grinning, “Kid, wise men adapt. You’ve got potential. Stick with us, and you’ll live the good life.”

Qian Tong just hung his head and kept silent.

As Gu Qing and Gu Lin ascended the stairs, Qian Tong finally lifted his head, watching their retreating figures.

Inside Gu Chen’s study, Gu Qing and Gu Lin found various confidential account books and secret files on Huaguo’s government officials. The brothers were ecstatic.

These were the invisible wealth accumulated by the Gu family’s leaders over the years.

They even discovered incriminating evidence of Gu Chen’s past collusions with officials.

Gu Qing’s brow relaxed, and he said gleefully, “I was thinking of letting Gu Chen rot in jail while we slowly undermine him within the company. But with these, we won’t have to wait that long. When Gu Chen returns, we’ll use this to threaten him into transferring all his shares to us, or he spends a lifetime in jail.”

Gu Lin’s eyes lit up, “Makes sense, saves us a lot of trouble! When that happens, the Gu Group will be ours, and dealing with a powerless Gu Chen will be as simple as crushing an ant. I’ll make him beg for life and wish for death! I’ll grind his face into the ground, no, into the trash heap! I want to see how his pristine appearance gets dirtied bit by bit!”

Gu Lin still held a grudge against Gu Chen for stepping on his hand and face.

Gu Chen was interrogated for forty-eight hours but was eventually released due to a lack of evidence.

When Gu Chen came out, no one was there to pick him up. He shielded his eyes from the glaring sunlight, smiled faintly, then picked up his phone and sent a message to Shen Xi: “If you want to know who attacked Guan Lei, come to my house and rescue me. I’ll tell you. Remember to bring more people!”
