Business Mana��s Ranking
After returning to the study room,A�An ZiA�Ran took his pen and started practising writing words. Mr Su told him that these words are challenging, ifA�ZiA�Ran can write them well, he will have no problem writing other words.
When Mr Su came in, he sawA�ZiA�Ran focusing on writing. Therea��s no trace of uneasiness or sadness on his face, it doesna��t look like he just had a quarrel with his uncle and aunt.
Mr SuA�witnessedA�everyA�changeA�that had happened toA�ZiA�Ran, from the immature boy to the now responsible and mature man.
To be honest, Mr Su did not expect that the death ofA�ZiA�Rana��s father will changeA�ZiA�Ran by this much. Maybe ita��s just like how they say it, one will only a�?be awakea�� when someone leaves.
Mr Su was really relieved. As he was the one who had taken care ofA�ZiA�Ran for years, he knewA�ZiA�Rana��s laziness and immaturity. If Zi Ran took overA�AnA�Famiily’sA�assets, it will surely fall in ruins. ThatA�why, Mr Su was really relieved when he saw howA�ZiA�Ran has changed these days.
But as he remembers what happened in the corridor just now, he instantly got worried again, and frowned. That frown was so obvious that ita��s impossible forA�ZiA�Ran to not realise.
Finally, he stopped what he was doing, and looked up to face Mr Su.
a�?Mr Su, just spit it outa��A�ZiA�Ran said.
Mr Su had been waiting for this moment, he said a�?Zi Ran, I know that Ia��m nothing but just a servant, but sometimes therea��s just something that I have to nag about. Today the act of pissing off your aunt and uncle in the corridor wasna��t smart at all.a��
ZiA�Ran had known Mr Su for a long time, he knew that Mr Su wasna��t someone who does not know what hea��s talking about. So, he asked a�?Why do you say so?a��
When Mr Su realisedA�ZiA�Ran showed interest in what he was talking about, he felt really happy. If it were the oldA�ZiA�Ran, he woulda��veA�ignore him and told him to go away.
a�?Zi Ran, your uncle is someone with fame and power, if he really wants to go against An Family, An Yuan Ju’s chief mayor would be standing on his side.a�� Mr Su said.
AnA�ZiA�RanA�was confused. Putting down the pen, he asked a�?Even though uncle has fame and power, he is still just a scholar, how much influence can a scholar make? Why would the chief mayor be on his side?a��
Mr Su replied a�?Zi Ran, our country is a country thatA�prioritizeA�education, thata��s why lots of people study a lot to get fame and power. Compared to a business man, a scholara��s ranking is actually higher, lots of people despise businessmen. Therefore, even though your uncle is just a scholar with low-income, he still has a higher ranking than businessmen.a��
ZiA�Ran did not expect that this is how this country, China works.
Indeed, knowledge is really important, but theA�factorA�thatA�has been pushingA�Chinaa��s economy is its business. WithoutA�these business, this countrya��s economy would have been way worse.
Mr Su continued a�?But the person that you have to be cautious about is not your uncle, but your aunt WuA�Zhi.a��
Mr Su said worriedly a�?Wu Zhi’s sister is the wife of someone really important in YongA�ZhouA�district,A�if WuA�ZhiA�complained to her sister about this, Ia��m afraid that they will do something about it and go against us.a��
Wu Zhia��s sister is the wife to someone really powerful, if they really want to go against An Family, An Family will be in deep trouble.
After a few moments of deep thoughts,A�ZiA�Ran said a�?Mr Su, can you go help me find someoneA�trustableA�and let that person spy on my uncle and his family? This is so that if they really want to go against us, weA�will be preparedA�as wea��re one step ahead.a��
Mr Su wasna��t really happy with this idea, if people knowA�ZiA�Ran was spying on his own uncle, it would be really bad for An Familya��s reputation, but seeing how therea��s no other way, he agreed with it. The next day, Mr Su did as heA�was told.
