While New Cruise was not as developed as it was now several months ago, the company was currently the icon of Country Z’s car dealerships.
Cars were gradually replacing walking and motorcycles in 1999. Some middle-class families were beginning to purchase smaller sedans of their own too—not that there were many in Longmen City who could afford to do that.
But there was no doubt New Cruise had made its name and reputation known in the country.
One should not ask if Ms. Lu knew about New Cruise—it was impossible for her not to know about it!
A big company like New Cruise was a presence that stirred Ms. Lu’s deference.
That was why when she heard that Yun Jian was New Cruise’s director, she had instantly and unconsciously let go of her husband and her son to jog toward Yun Jian. She ultimately stopped in her track and gaped at Yun Jian in disbelief.
“Y-you... You’re New Cruise’s director?” It took everything within Ms. Lu to voice the seemingly unbelievable and shocking question.
Yun Zhu’s elder sister, Yun Jian, was not only a member of the Advanced Special Forces but was also the director of New Cruise? Just the status of New Cruise’s director was enough to stir fear within Ms. Lu.
If Yun Jian wanted to get even with her, she could just hook a finger at the principal in Ms. Lu’s school and the principal would have to fire her! The reality of the society was that it was the survival of the fittest—there was no room for losers. This had been a constant law since the beginning of times.
That was why after Ms. Lu knew that Yun Jian was New Cruise’s director, her attitude toward her changed immediately.
“Ah, heh, uh... Yun Zhu’s sister, I didn’t expect you to be so successful...” Ms. Lu said with a wince.
Yun Jian had already seen through the teacher.
When she ignored Ms. Lu at the entrance of the hotel earlier, the latter raised her hackles and tried to ignore her, too, with feigned superiority when she saw her just now. However, once the woman heard that she was New Cruise’s director, she was taken aback and rushed up to her obsequiously the moment she snapped back to reality.
To be honest, Yun Jian truly disliked people like Ms.. Lu.
Before she could say anything to the teacher, though, another mocking voice sounded shrilly. It was even more jarring to the ears than Ms. Lu had been.
“Hah! Is this the so-called wedding of the century?”
The woman’s voice was even more boastful and presumptuous than Ms. Lu’s. Perhaps, it could also be said that in comparison to Ms. Lu, this woman sounded more confident—it was an innate sense of confidence and grace that could only come from actual wealthy women.
Without turning back, Yun Jian knew that the voice belonged to Ge Xuan’s birth mother, Hua Yun.
Ge Xuan had already come back and was still in Ge Junjian’s house, planning to come to the hotel later together with the bride, Qin Yirou.
Since Hua Yun had divorced Ge Junjian and got together with Hu Chaoqun, she dressed up like an affluent woman and was incredibly snobbish about it. All these were because Hu Chaoqun had an uncle whose influence was world class.
Amusingly similar, Hua Yun, like Ms. Lu, had one arm hooked with her husband, Hu Chaoqun, and a hand pulling her son, Hu Chixiang, as she made her way over to Yun Jian. The only difference was that, compared to Ms. Lu who was trying to act like a rich wife, Hua Yun’s mannerism oozed the true superiority of a wealthy woman.
Just as she came to Yun Jian, she told Yun Jian impatiently, “Tsk, tsk, a wedding at only a four-star hotel? Is this how low you’ve fallen to?”
Hua Yun finished saying and turned to Hu Chaoqun to boast, “Hubby... I remember we got married in a grand international hotel the last time and we invited several international VIPs! Oh yeah, even the armament tycoon who dealt with Gu Sha Mercenaries and An Hun Group came to our wedding as support too!”
