Chapter 805: Showing off
“I had originally wanted to sell the mine that I bought from Mr Xiao Jin to earn a profit. His mine is much better than the Zhu family’s mine. Furthermore, to open a mine, I would have to invest a lot of money in the early stages. Changkang Group has already moved a part of their money to buy the mine, so I don’t have the money to invest in it.” Jiang Yao sighed and said, “I’m so poor!”
Lu Xingzhi thought it was interesting that Jiang Yao would complain that she was poor. He chuckled lightly. She had hundreds of millions in assets and two mines. How could she call herself poor? If others knew about that, they would only think that she had flaunted her wealth deliberately.
“Didn’t you say that you want to open a jewelry company? If you want to do that, then don’t sell the mine. Keep it for yourself. In the future, you won’t need to beg people; you can be self-sufficient,” Lu Xingzhi said. “I’ll borrow some money from Big Brother for the mine’s early stages. Then, Carl and Ruan Yongjun can look for money from other people and pay it in one lump sum at the end of the year. In that case, you still have a long time to turn things around.”
Jiang Yao did some calculations in her head. She had only a short time to turn things around—probably around two months.
However, it was still better than nothing.
“Then I’ll listen to you; I’ll keep it.” Jiang Yao had always wanted to open a jewelry company because of the large profit margins. She had an interest in the industry—an easy to earn industry. Since she had the resources, there was no reason not to do it.
With that money, she would have enough funds to support the research institute and the orphanage in the future.
Jiang Yao continued to think about that discreetly—if she were really poor at that time, she could go to Antique Street with Moe to try her luck or perhaps search for some other good stuff at the trading market. If she had some money in her hand, she would be able to turn that into big money. She would make a profit without any losses.
“Then, for the mineral exploitation, we shall do as you say. You can decide on how much you think is suitable for Carl and Ruan Yongjun.” Jiang Yao looked at Lu Xingzhi—the man knew about those things better than she did. He also understood more about the ways of the world than she did.
Lu Xingzhi only needed to take one look to see Jiang Yao’s trust and reliance on him. He raised his hand and patted her head. “You are so stupid. You didn’t even know that I sold you.”
“You’re just showing off.” Jiang Yao smiled—her eyes were like small crescent moons. Anyone in the world could sell her out, except for Lu Xingzhi. Therefore, when she heard Lu Xingzhi make fun of her, she thought it was interesting.
Young Master Lu, who loved to show off, curved his lips upward as he looked at his little wife with a faint smile. Then, he chuckled lightly and got up to open the door for the waiter who had delivered their dinner. His entire body buzzed, and every step he took was filled with joy.
He loved it when she trusted him completely without any form of defenses. He also enjoyed the fact that she relied so much on him. He liked it when she needed him, a feeling that originated from deep within her heart.
A dinner for two in a not-so-comfortable hotel made them feel as if they were home because they had each other for company.
Meanwhile, in Zhu Qianlan’s initial residence, Zhu Qianliang and her father, Zhu Shisan, also had dinner together, but it was a different scene.
“What did Director Ye say?” Zhu Qianliang was a little anxious. “I’ve been locked up here for so many days, and no one is allowed to visit me. Our lawyers are useless too. I’m just a girl, who knows what kind of suffering I’ll have to endure in there.”
