Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Ive told you that were okay now, Tina. Theres no need to drive so fast, at least let me open the gate first, Zhang Lisheng who was sitting on the passengers seat took out the black remote control he snatched from Rudolph and said while forcing a smile, as he opened the gate. What he said seemed to work a little bit, whereby Tina slowed down slightly. However, she stepped on the accelerator to the maximum as soon as the gate was opened. A low rumble came off as she rushed out of the pitch black road outside the gate.
Okay Tina, I know youre in a hurry to get back to New York City but could you at least turn on the lights? Zhang Lisheng seemed to sense something was off. He reminded and said nothing more. She drove the pick-up truck to its speed limit on the empty road towards New York. They began driving pass other cars when they were close to New York City. The existence of cars would mean there were drivers in those vehicles. Tinas worked up emotion seemed to have calmed down, ever since she saw people. She began slowing down and no longer driving as insane as she was.
As she blended into the traffic and drove along the ring road into New York Brooklyn, Zhang Lisheng who had been quiet along the journey sitting on the passengers seat spoke all of a sudden, Tina, pull over somewhere along the street and drop me.
Tina was stunned and pulled over slowly. Zhang Lisheng took out all of the cash in his pocket and put it on the dashboard. He only left a few coins for himself, Tina, thanks for everything you did for me. We were supposed to have a lobster dinner, but unfortunately so much happened. I suppose youre unwilling to dine with me now. Its okay, I understand your feeling. Ill leave the money for you, reward yourself tonight. Also, I would like you to know that Im completely different from scums like Rudolph. I wouldnt hurt anyone for fun, let alone my friends. Those people who I treated cruelly deserve the treatment that I gave. I hope to see you again, my friend.
Zhang Lisheng opened the door after he was done speaking and walked onto the street without turning his head. Tinas mouth opened slightly as she watched him leave. She was going to scream but the terrifying scenes flashed by her eyes. She swallowed her scream that was reaching her mouth, back into her stomach.
Walking on the chilly New York street, Zhang Lisheng arrived at the bus station. He finally arrived at Lowbige community on the bus that was stopping everywhere. It was almost 9 p.m. when he walked into the house. Lili was the only one in the living room on the first floor. She was watching tv alone, while Sullo was working overtime. Those kids who recovered from the grief they had for Michelles misfortune were having fun out there. They would not come back until their curfew at 10 p.m
Lili stood up from the couch hearing the door being opened. Seeing that it was Zhang Lisheng who was walking into the house, she ran to hug her son as she said, Baby youre back, was it a happy date today?
It wasnt a date mom, Zhang Lisheng thought to himself and said, That ladys my broker, I went with her to purchase a small slaughterhouse in Kaiserland Town thats close to New York City.
What did you say? Lili was stunned for a moment and asked in shock.
This is what happened. I realized theres a huge business opportunity in New Yorks meat industry through working at Dan Souza Butcher Shop. I happened to have some you know, some pension, so I bought a small slaughterhouse in Kaiserland Town. Its a town outside of Brooklyn thats an hour drive away. However, dont worry that I would slack on my studies because Im planning to join Kaiserland Towns National Farmers Union. Ill be running the business in a self-service way, whereby the farmers would use the slaughterhouse on their own. In other words, Ill get the farmers to use those automated machines in the slaughterhouse to slaughter their livestock and theyll pay me for machine rental. The preliminary calculation would be 50 dollars per pig, 150 dollars per cow and 40 dollars per lamb. Ill be setting up some surveillance in the slaughterhouse. The farmers could register themselves online if theyre renting the slaughterhouse to slaughter their livestock on their own. Theyll prepay the rental fee and come according to the time they registered. Its remote management with an order, what do you think? Zhang Lisheng dissimilated Tinas suggestion and said without stopping.
Lili took a long time to digest the information given by Zhang Lisheng slowly and said while having her jaw dropped, What What do I think Wow, I think I think my sons perfect to be living in America. You adapt to your environment even more than your siblings who grew up in America! Stephen and Randy were still stealing money from Sullos wallet when they were your age, but youve started your slaughterhouse business now. Moms so proud of you, but how much did you purchase the slaughterhouse?
105,000 dollars, its very cheap.
How much? Lili asked in exclamation.
105,000 dollars, weve signed the deal today. This is the contract, Zhang Lisheng took out the contract from his pocket and handed it over to Lili as he spoke calmly.
Oh oh, I know youve been very independent my baby. But But 105,000 dollars is a huge number, Lili took over the contract and said while looking at it, Dont Dont you think you should discuss with me?
Do you know anything about slaughtering business, mom?
I dont but
But I do, this business would definitely be the foundation of my career.
But isnt your goal to be a biologist?
Thats why I must make money to invest in the most advanced biology lab in the world without depending on those rich, but stupid donors.
Oh baby, you sure think far ahead. Okay, since youve already thought so far ahead and spent so much to purchase a slaughterhouse, theres nothing that I could say. Ill just do everything I can to help you
Thanks, mom but Ive got everything under control at the moment, theres nothing that you can do for help. I just hope that you could give me some freedom and let me learn to drive. Ill buy myself a car. Although its remote management, Ill need to drop by Kaiserland Town frequently.
Of course I could promise you that, my baby. Do you have money to get a car and a license
Yes, I still have 5,000 dollars in my savings. That should be able for me to get what I want.
You sound like youve got everything under control. Wow, suddenly I feel like my son has grown up and independent. This is unbelievable. Two months back, I was worried that you couldnt adapt to life in America, but now youve found yourself a beautiful broker, bought a slaughterhouse and began your road to entrepreneurship. That Thats just too amazing.
Mom, its just a slaughterhouse. At my age, some American kids already built their online companies and ready for listing.
But those kids who built online companies are somebody elses kids and youre my baby. Moms proud of you, Im proud of your spirit to take the first step in fulfilling your great dream. Remember, Ill always have your back baby. No matter what kind of trouble you might have in the future, I hope that you could tell me anytime.
Thanks, mom, Zhang Lisheng hugged Lili feeling touched and said, I need your help now. I havent had dinner, could you make me a shepherds pie?
Oh, of course, baby, Lili walked to the kitchen quickly, Didnt you have dinner with your beautiful broker after the deal was done?
I have some misunderstanding with her, we might not meet any longer.
Oh baby, do you want to talk about it?
No mom, Ive told you many times. Im not as weak as you think.
Of course, my little factory owner. Apart from shepherds pie, do you want me to bake you a chocolate cake? I bought fresh chocolate sauce and ice-cream today.
Thats not necessary mom, Zhang Lisheng said while forcing a smile. He finished the shepherds pie that Lili made in a few gulps and said goodnight to her who was nagging at him to eat slowly. He then went upstairs immediately and returned to his room. He shut the door and hopped onto his bed in a few steps. Subsequently, he took out Mountoad from his backpack and put it at his window. After sitting comfortably, he began cultivating the Rank-2 Wizard secret method as usual.
Just when he shut his eyes to focus, a lively Demons chest appeared in his head clearly instantly. However, he could not build the internal and external circulation with his wizard worm no matter what.
As expected, I cant use the Rank-2 Wizards secret method cultivation once I broke through to Rank-3 Wizard, Zhang Lisheng mumbled to himself after experimenting that and began cultivating the Rank-3 Wizard secret method. Sensing the secret method, the wizard worm that seemed a little grim and terrifying under the moonlight opened its huge mouth and spat a mouthful of black breath. It covered Zhang Lisheng entirely.
In the next second, a pair of gigantic arms grew out of the Demons chest in his head. It was illusory, as they moved lightly. Following the moving of arms, the witchcraft power in Zhang Lishengs blood began to flow slowly. Tens of illusory strange worms turned the impurities in his body into black smoke and released out of his eyes, nose, ears, and mouth. As the black smoke flew out, it flowed straight into Mountoads huge mouth. The first Rank-3 Wizard secret method cultivations internal and external circulation was completed.
As soon as the circulation was completed, Zhang Lisheng fell into cultivation mode, until the next morning as if he fell asleep.
