“CEO Q- Qiao…”
Xia Shahai was frightened, as he knew what he had done. If he called the police, who knew how many years he would be sentenced to?!
As a manager of a company, it was very simple to do something.
If no one cared, it was fine. But if the top boss wanted to investigate anything, it would be a crime!
Boss Peng stuck out his big belly with a serious face.
“Old Xia, you are a veteran employee of our company, and you have brought a lot of benefits to us. But how can you embezzle public funds to harm the company’s interests? Alas!”
Finally, he sighed, angry and helpless.
“Boss Peng, I- I have already made up all the money!” Xia Shahai rushed to explain. “This…”
“Even if you made up for it, can you treat the matter as if it didn’t happen?” Qiao Yanjue looked serious and majestic. “If we don’t deal with these things seriously, wouldn’t others behave like this too? What kind of company would we have if we didn’t handle situations like this?”
“CEO Qiao!” Xia Shahai’s face was pale, almost kneeling down.
“Moreover, what you did today has reflected badly on the company!” Qiao Yanjue’s face was grim.
What they did today?!
Xia Shahai and Liu Lixin looked at each other, at a loss for words.
What did they do?
They didn’t know that there was an uproar on the Internet at the moment, everyone sympathizing with Xia Xibei.
If they did, they would really spit out the blood in their hearts.
“So, this matter must be handled seriously!” Qiao Yanjue said in a loud voice.
Xia Shahai and Liu Lixin took a breath, their faces pale.
“CEO Qiao.” Boss Peng felt soft and tried to persuade him, “CEO Qiao, don’t be angry! Old Xia made a big mistake, but he is an old employee of the company. He deserves some credit for his work…”
“Don’t talk nonsense with me!” Qiao Yanjue coldly interrupted his attempts at persuasion. “A country has laws and a family has rules, so we can deal with him as we should!”
As he talked, he took out his phone and tapped on the screen.
No one dared to look at his phone, thinking he was still busy with business, so no one noticed that Xia Xibei’s phone vibrated at that exact moment.
Xia Xibei clicked on the message, which was from Qiao Yanjue and simply said, “It’s your turn.”
Xia Xibei was speechless.
“CEO Qiao, I’m begging you…”
Xia Shahai was so anxious, he couldn’t even talk clearly. He knew that if Qiao Yanjue was determined to pursue the matter, he would have to stay in prison for at least a few years!
Liu Lixin was about to cry too. She did not expect all these crises to occur at the same time.
This was going to be the end of them!
As they were in a panic, Xia Xibei finally spoke up.
“Mr. Qiao, please! Have mercy on him!”
These words made everyone turn and look at her.
Boss Peng and the others were also shocked. Were they hallucinating? Otherwise, how could Xia Xibei ask for mercy on behalf of Xia Shahai?
They all had heard about what happened just now and knew that the father and daughter had severed their relationship. It was even Xia Shahai who took the initiative.
But just now… What was Xia Xibei doing?
Qiao Yanjue raised his brows, asking, “You’re asking me to let him off?”
“Yes,” Xia Xibei nodded with a serious look. “Although we have severed our relationship, he is still the man who raised me. And they have young children too. If they are not taken care of by their father, they will be as pitiful as I was as a child.”
Her eyes became more and more red as she spoke.
Xia Shahai looked at Xia Xibei in shock, thinking that he was hallucinating.
What the- What was this girl doing?!
Why was she being so nice?!
