Reincarnation Of The Businesswoman At School Book 2 Chapter 202
As long as you had enough funds, you could easily get adequate workers, but it wasn't easy to acquire a good piece of land. At the same time, you had to have the permission of the government. Otherwise, you would not have the qualification to acquire a piece of land even with enough funds.
An Guangyao knew that Hongyun Real Estate was a powerful company with several billion yuan in assets. Therefore, even though he didn't know whether Gu Ning had made the right decision, he trusted Hongyun Real Estate's choice. It had to be a profitable deal if Hongyun Real Estate wanted to settle it.
However, what worried An Guangyao was the funds to build the buildings. Shenghua Real Estate was barely afloat right now, and he had already taken out a loan from the bank. He couldn't get a mortgage again.
Gu Ning also lacked enough funds to build the buildings, but she had no intention to cooperate with another real estate company, so she wouldn't build the buildings in a hurry even if she acquired the land.
She planned to build the buildings after her vacation when she would go to Province Y for stone gambling to collect funds. However, she couldn't tell An Guangyao her plan yet. She would have to introduce him to Zhou Zhenghong before An Guangyao found out about her outstanding ability at stone gambling. In that case, it wouldn't confuse him if she suddenly had a large amount of money later.
An Guangyao thought that it wasn't a completely secure deal, but he chose to believe Gu Ning. After he hung up, he immediately prepared the contract and informed the lawyer along with several reliable assistants. They were all as shocked as An Guangyao, but An Guangyao didn't explain further, so they didn't ask why.
Gu Ning received a call from Situ Ye later. Leng Shaoting's face changed at once, but he didn't stop Gu Ning. Gu Ning understood that Leng Shaoting wasn't happy that she kept a close relationship with Situ Ye, but she had to answer the call. "Hi, how are you?"
"Great. Are you free tonight? May we dine together?" Situ Ye asked.
Hearing that, Leng Shaoting was displeased. Gu Ning didn't know what to say. She hadn't even answered yet!
"I'm so sorry. I'm busy tonight. May we have the meal another day?" Gu Ning declined because of Leng Shaoting. However, it was unavoidable that she was going to have a meal with Situ Ye. He had done her a favor, and sent her a precious gift after all. She couldn't play dumb.
"Fine, I'll wait," Situ Ye didn't insist, but Leng Shaoting thought that Situ Ye was flirting with Gu Ning.
Men probably became sensitive when it came to a competition for love. Leng Shaoting knew nothing about romance before, but now he was able to sense any hint of threat.
Gu Ning, instead, didn't think that Situ Ye had any special feelings towards her, so she seriously had no idea how to handle Leng Shaoting's changing emotions.
"There's nothing between us. Why did you suddenly became so upset when he called me?" Gu Ning asked resignedly.
"He is chasing you," Leng Shaoting replied. He sounded like an unhappy child.
"That's insane! The one who chased me isn't him," Gu Ning said. She didn't realize that Leng Shaoting had misunderstood her until now.
"Then who did?" Leng Shaoting asked.
"I've already rejected him." Gu Ning still didn't tell Leng Shaoting who the one who chased her was.
Hearing that, Leng Shaoting was finally relieved. He didn't ask further, because Gu Ning had already rejected the person, and it was meaningless to know who he was now. However, Leng Shaoting still felt uneasy. He could sense that Situ Ye treated Gu Ning differently.
Leng Shaoting didn't mention Situ Ye again, but he remained careful.
Ding Peiwei was active, and soon had a gathering with all the neighbors to discuss the deal offered by Gu Ning. Some believed it, while some had doubts. It sounded too good to be true.
Ding Peiwei told them that they could have the compensation in cash or by transfer on site once they signed the contract. Thus everyone agreed, although many of them still held suspicion. They would only feel safe after the deal was done.
Around 7 pm, Ding Peiwei called Gu Ning and told her that they had all agreed.
Gu Ning told him that she would come to acquire the land around 10:30 am tomorrow, and that they should prepare the documents beforehand. To allay Ding Peiwei's concern, Gu Ning also told him that she had already gained the right of land acquisition.
Ding Peiwei was astonished. He didn't expect that Gu Ning was so efficient. He even thought that she had prepared for it a long time ago, but no matter what, they only wanted a reasonable compensation.
With the affirmative answer from Ding Peiwei, Gu Ning called An Guangyao, telling him to leave for City G on the flight at 8:30 am tomorrow morning. She would pick him up in person.
When they signed the contract, it could be noisy and a mess. Gu Ning needed someone to keep the situation in order, and Leng Shaoting immediately took the job.
Gu Ning then found out that Leng Shaoting also had a corporation providing security services. It was called Shengshi Security Co. Ltd. and all the employees were retired soldiers. Moreover, there were two levels of security workers in Shengshi Security Co. Ltd. One was a security officer, and the other was a bodyguard.
Common security officers were common retired soldiers, while bodyguards were retired Special Forces. The latter was much more expensive than the former.
Many retired soldiers couldn't find a proper job, so Leng Shaoting thought that it was a good idea to establish a security company mainly hiring retired soldiers. However, unexpectedly, the company grew rapidly, and now had branches in every big city and province.
Shengshi Security Co. Ltd. was different from Qinghua Security Co. Ltd. which belonged to the Qing Gang.
The Qing Gang's security company relied on its fame and quantity, but Leng Shaoting's company was famous for its ability and quality. The examination in Shengshi Security Co. Ltd. was very strict. The company would test its employees regularly, and it was a high-end company.
Businessmen would turn to Qinghua Security Co. Ltd. while officials would choose Shengshi Security Co. Ltd. And except for the senior management in Shengshi Security Co. Ltd. nobody knew that Leng Shaoting was the real boss of it.
After the dinner with Leng Shaoting, Gu Ning told Leng Shaoting that she needed to deal with something personal, and told him to go rest. They would meet tomorrow.
Leng Shaoting respected Gu Ning as well as her privacy. So although he was curious, he didn't ask her. He didn't want to invade her privacy.
"Oh, wait a second." Just when they were about to separate Leng Shaoting thought of something.
