JFK Airport, New York.
Two private planes took off twenty minutes apart.
On the plane that took off first was Ye Chen’s great uncle, An Chongqiu, while on the plane that took off later was Gu Qiuyi, who was holding the Blood Dispersing and Heart Saving Pill.
An Chongqiu’s heart was in turmoil at this moment.
His heart was full of tension and heartache for his father, and he had not thought for a moment that he would wait for his father to pa*s away and divide the An family’s a*sets.
Moreover, he knew very well that his father was the backbone of the An family, and if he were to pa*s away at this time, the entire An family would be greatly wounded.
Therefore, in his heart, he did not want his father to suffer such an ordeal.
Compared to other families, the An family is relatively more united and there is little conflict between the siblings.
The main reason why the An family was so united was because of the unexpected death of An Chengqing.
The death of An Chengqi not only caused the entire An family a great deal of pain, but also made the An family blame themselves for so many years.
Everyone knew that if the An family had supported An Chengqin’s choice and her marriage to the Ye family, An Chengqin would not have gone to Jinling with Ye Chen after Ye Changyang and the Ye family had fallen out.
Going to Jinling was a desperate choice for the three of them.
If the An family had been the strong backing of An Chengqing, and An Chengqing and her husband had been wronged in Yanjing, they would have taken Ye Chen back to her mother’s home to settle down.
In that case, the tragedy that followed might not have happened.
It was also from the time of An Chengqing and Ye Changyang’s accident that Ye Chen’s grandfather changed his thinking on how to manage the An family.
The five words of family harmony and prosperity then became his only philosophy of family governance.
Under the old man’s promotion for so many years, the An family gradually got used to putting their family first in everything.
Once anything conflicted with family harmony, they had to unconditionally put their family first.
After so many years, the An family was indeed much more united under his leadership than even the average large family.
Moreover, the old man was indeed wise and very meticulous in the functional structure of the entire An family.
He let An Chongqiu, who had a relatively soft personality, take the lead internally, let An Kefeng, who had a relatively strong personality, take the lead externally, let An Zhaonan, who was the third, a*sist An Kefeng in the organisation of the entire An family’s industries, and let An Youyou, who was the youngest, oversee the financial and legal affairs of the entire An family.
At the same time, he also gave An Chongqiu and An Youyou the right to veto in the board of directors’ meetings, as a meltdown mechanism at critical times, to prevent An Kaifeng from acting arbitrarily when he is in power.
If something happens to him as the head of the family, all the children will listen to An Chongqiu when they enter the family home, while the other three siblings will discuss the decision when they leave the family home.
If An Kaifeng wants to act arbitrarily, An Chongyou, who knows the most about finance and legal affairs, can use his veto power to melt away his control.
If An Kaifeng wants to join forces with An Zhaonan and An Youyou for other plans, An Chongqiu can also use his veto power to block them and avert the risks for the An family.
The four siblings appear to be working in tandem with each other, while at the same time keeping each other in check.
But this organisational structure, while seemingly tight, actually has significant hidden dangers.
If the family is already at odds within itself, it will certainly lead to collusion and open rivalry between all parties.
But the good thing is that the An family is united, so the four of them have always worked very well together.
