Chapter 666: I Do (Part One)
Xu Cheng dropped Lin Chuxue off at Harvard University.
Lin Chuxue had a hard time saying goodbye. “I will soon see you again once it’s break time. Thank you for this trip back to Huaxia. I mean, for taking me to meet those people.”
Xu Cheng looked at Lin Chuxue and said, “You mean those people in Huaxia? Little Xue, those aren’t really important to me, I’ll bring you to know the real important ones around me later.”
“Okay.” Lin Chuxue smiled slightly. “I’ll wait until the time comes, when you’ll take me to them. It’s your brothers you were talking about, right?”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Yes, there are several of them. I’ll wait until you finish your studies.”
Lin Chuxue nodded. “I don’t know what you are doing, but just be careful with everything.”
“Okay I will. Go inside and remember not to talk to strangers.” Xu Cheng laughed.
Lin Chuxue gave Xu Cheng a flirtatious glance. “That sounds like you’re talking to a kid, but I am not a kid.”
“I know, but you’re too pretty. I’m afraid that even if you just casually walk around, increasing your exposure would increase the crime rate in Cambridge,” Xu Cheng said.
Lin Chuxue laughed as she said, “Since you praised me, I’ll forgive you this time for treating me as an outsider. I hope that when I return from my studies, no matter what kind of secrets you have, or who your brothers are, you will tell me everything about you. I want to know my man, so don’t make yourself too mysterious okay? Otherwise, it would feel so unreal.”
Lin Chuxue was still a more traditional person at heart, she felt that first of all, they never had a formal wedding and Xu Cheng still had things to hide from her, so it made her feel like she was very non-existent in Xu Cheng’s family or life. The marriage happened somewhat casually back then, but she did not want their future to be like this as well.
“I will. After your studies, let’s get married.” Xu Cheng smiled.
“You … What did you say?” Lin Chuxue was stunned for a moment, and then she was a bit shy as she dropped her gaze. “Aren’t we considered married already?”
Xu Cheng laughed. “When Auntie Lan got married, the way you looked at her in her wedding dress… I owe you a formal wedding. Do you think I’m that stupid to understand what you reminded me of before? I’ll be ready, for when you officially marry me.”
“We’ll talk about it.” Lin Chuxue’s face suddenly flushed red, feeling like she couldn’t continue to talk about this topic any longer. She quickly turned around and ran up the steps of the apartment with her heels in a somewhat fleeing manner.
But when Xu Cheng turned around to leave, Lin Chuxue suddenly turned around to look at Xu Cheng’s back and shouted while standing on the high staircase, “I do!”
By the time Xu Cheng turned his head, Lin Chuxue had already run away.
Xu Cheng grinned as he looked at her slim figure.
He was smiling, and Lin Chuxue was also smiling with her back to him with the corners of her lips curled at a happy angle. The stars even seemed to be smiling and twinkling in the dark night sky above her head.
Xu Cheng arrived at the office building that was to be the Mandala Lab’s headquarters, and he saw that Mario was still busy receiving phone calls. He threw a packet of cigarettes to Mario and Chekhov as he lit one up and asked, “How are the orders?”
Mario took out his notebook to tally the statistics and said. “A total of 41,565 bottles, gold bottles accounted for 69% of the orders, followed by platinum, and diamond bottle orders are still relatively small, only 1,700 bottles are expected to be ordered.”
Xu Cheng smacked his lips. “Normal. They still don’t know the value of the platinum and diamond bottles and their prices are also relatively high. The diamond bottle is 68,800 US dollars, and there are still 1700 orders sold, so that is far better than what we imagined. Besides we didn’t plan the diamond bottles for mass production.”
Mario clicked his tongue and said, “Big Brother Cheng, I calculated that there’s 400 million dollars profit for the sales and this is only day one. If our product gets into the hands of customers with good feedback, then the future sales will only rise steadily.”
Stenson interrupted at this time. “I’m afraid the monthly sales will be billions by then. Boss, how much net profit can we make out of this 400 million?”
Xu Cheng said, “You don’t need to know that. There’s going to be a lot of it anyway, and there’s no need to disclose the details until we, Mandala, plan to go public.”
He also didn’t plan to go public, it would be fine to earn while keeping low-key.
If he wanted to play capital in this capitalistic nation, then he would really need to keep it low.
