“If your brother knew that you were going to compete with him for the position of CEO, he might not be so kind.” Ji Shiting smiled lightly. “Now that you have found your footing, and there are only two years left… you don’t have to restrain yourself anymore.”
“I know.” Qiao Yanze’s tone was self-deprecating. “That was my plan.”
Ji Shiting raised his eyebrows in surprise. “Are you scared?”
“Of course not.” Qiao Yanze denied, but then fell silent.
If he was afraid, he wouldn’t have participated in the first place.
He had always been used to being sloppy. Even when he entered the company, he still looked sloppy. Moreover, his focus was obviously on Huayao. It looked like he was just doing his best to make it easier for him to date a celebrity or model. His second and third sister gradually let down their guard towards him. After all, to the two of them, their eldest brother, Qiao Yanxun, was their greatest rival. Unless all three of them were dead, the company would not fall into the hands of a playboy like Qiao Yanze.
Qiao Yanze gradually managed to gain a firm foothold and unknowingly received the praises of some seniors and directors. After all, although he was a lazy person, he was not lacking in ability at all. When his siblings were busy fighting for power and benefits, he had done every project that was handed to him beautifully. Everyone who had worked with him knew that at critical moments, these people might stand behind him.
He had a lot of bargaining chips in his hands. Now that Qiao Fengnian had made it clear that he wanted to observe them, he could not continue to hide his ambition.
But he did not expect himself to hesitate.
“Because of Yinian,” he finally said. “If I show my fangs, the three of them will most likely attack me together. When that happens…”
“Li Yinian will become their target.” Ji Shiting added, “Your concern makes sense. No matter how careful you are, it’s hard to be foolproof.”
“That’s right.” Qiao Yanze exhaled slowly with a cold smile. “They won’t be ruthless, but they won’t be stingy when it comes to disgusting people. I’m sure that if I decide to fight with them, they will do everything they can to get Yinian into another man’s bed.”
His third sister would definitely do such a thing.
Unless Li Yinian was acknowledged by her parents and became his official girlfriend or fiancée.
Qiao Yanze had thought that he would solve this problem before he revealed his true intentions. Who knew that he had not even settled Li Yinian, let alone let his parents accept her?
Ji Shiting paused for a moment. “So, are you going to give up? If you continue to support your brother, you will definitely have a place in Fengqiao Corporation in the future.”
Qiao Yanze did not speak for a long time.
On one hand, there was his career and ambition, and on the other, there was Li Yinian.
Now, it seemed like he was destined to not be able to have both.
If Li Yinian was determined to be with him but was not accepted by his parents, he would not hesitate to give up on Fengqiao Corporation and all the planning and hard work he had put in over the years.
But this woman had never given him any hope.
Besides, if he didn’t have enough money and power, Li Yinian would leave him once she had the chance.
It seemed that not only could he not have both, he might even lose both.
Qiao Yanze humphed and suddenly asked him, “If it were you, what would you choose?”
Ji Shiting raised his eyebrows. “I don’t need to make such a choice..”
