Apocalyptic Rebirth: Earth’s Vast Changes - Chpater 13
With that, Qin Luo directly hung up the phone without giving him any chance to reply. Then, he pulled Aunt Liu back to the dining table. And when the phone started to incessantly ring, he asked Aunt Liu to not pick it up.
Aunt Liu frowned as she sat back in her seat, looking at Qin Luo’s appearance and tone. From the look of it, he didn’t seem to be joking. So, Aunt Liu sighed and said, “Well, it’s better to sell it. That way, we won’t be bothered by these bastards every day. Oh dear~”
Qin Luo patted Aunt Liu’s hand gently. “Don’t worry. I won’t let him get what he wants until I squeeze him dry.”
At those words, Aunt Liu hurriedly said to him, “Xiao Luo, you must be careful with them, their hearts are rather sinister. As long as the money we get from selling it is enough for us to live, you have to steer clear from them, alright? If something bad happens to you, how do you expect Aunt Liu to continue living?”
Qin Luo hastily assured her, “You can rest your mind, Aunt. There will absolutely be no setback in selling the equity shares.”
Originally, when Qin Luo returned to this time, he had wanted to sell his grandfather’s equity shares as soon as possible. The apocalypse was approaching after all, and it would be better to exchange it for things that could be used rather than keeping it in his hand and wasting it. So, when he was on the airplane, he thought on who he should sell the equity shares to that wouldn’t make him suffer great loss. He didn’t expect that Zhou Deren would call first. It was a godsend opportunity.
Well, I’ll get f*cked if I take the initiative, but if he’s the one doing it, then I can be the one who scr*w him up.
Although the apocalypse threat had always loomed over his mind and reminded Qin Luo to speed things up, haste makes waste. Thus, Qin Luo decided to give Zhou Deren the cold-shoulder for a few days before talking about equity shares transfer with him. That way, his crooked nature and wicked hearts would definitely be tempted.
That night, Qin Luo listed a large number of things as he waited for Zhou Deren to take the bait and be slaughtered like livestock.
Unexpectedly, the next day, Zhou Daren had immediately come to visit his house with a gift, which surprised Qin Luo somewhat with his eagerness.
This time, Zhou Deren was very polite. Although he still brought his bodyguards with him, he was not acting domineering at all, and even being polite by leaving his guards to wait outside. He entered the living room alone with only two boxes of old ginseng, fat face smiling so hard that Qin Luo could only see his teeth, and not his eyes.
Aunt Liu wasn’t polite to him. She didn’t even serve him a cup of tea. However, she graciously gave Qin Luo a cup of Pu’er tea.
As if Zhou Deren didn’t notice Aunt Liu’s gouging eyes, he smiled to Qin Luo and said, “young head of the Qin family, is what you said on the phone yesterday the truth?”
Qin Luo took a sip of his Pu’er tea. “There is this saying: ‘Don’t be afraid of thieves stealing, be afraid of thieves thinking about it’. Rather than having it in my hand and having to guard over it for a thousand days against thieves, it would be better to throw it out and let everyone live in peace.”
Zhou Deren’s fat face looked like it was stretched widely as he touched his shiny bald skull with pleasure. His mind automatically translated what Qin Luo said to what’s pleasing to his ear. “Yes, it’s not very useful in your hand, might as well sell it and let everyone be happy.”
Qin Luo snorted, but he didn’t say anything. Zhou Deren went on to say, “The amount I mentioned last time was a little inadequate. How about I add another 50%? What do you think, young head of the Qin family?
Qin Luo didn’t even look at him as he spoke to Aunt Liu, “Aunt Liu, go to the study and bring me several papers I have pressed under the glass.”
Aunt Liu then left to get the papers. Meanwhile, Qin Luo slowly sipped on his Pu’er tea, turning a blind eye to all of Zhou Deren’s actions.
Zhou Deren frowned slightly. He had never thought that the Qin family boy could do this. But, when he looked at the boy’s languid attitude, it really hit him that this boy truly looked like a member of the Qin family. It was known that this boy, the ‘young head of the Qin family’, was polite. However, he was also known to be sarcastic.
Who didn’t know of the splendour of the Qin family at that time. At his level, Zhou Deren’s afraid that even if he wanted to visit Old Qin, he would not be able to enter the gate for half a year. Yet, what use was there in being famous? A failure was a failure. They were dreaming if they hoped to be able to regain their former influence just through the efforts of an immature brat.
Aunt Liu took the papers Qin Luo asked for, returned to the living room, and then handed it to him. Then Qin Luo turned it over to Zhou Deren.
Zhou Deren looked at the various vegetables, fruits, eggs, seasonings, tea, wine, clothing, and daily necessities listed on the paper looking somewhat flabbergasted. He didn’t know what sort of tune Qin Luo was dancing to.
Was it possible that this kid is going to open a supermarket or a small shopping center specialized in daily necessities?
Zhou Deren thought as he flipped the paper in his hand. There were seven or eight pages in total, and each item was marked with two strings of numbers.
“What does this mean, young head of the Qin family?” Zhou Deren frowned as he asked Qin Luo.
Qin Luo chuckled. “I’m going to make some donations. There are two strings of numbers under every item I list. The first string is the amount of items, and the second string is the amount of equity shares you can exchange for should you fulfill the first requirement. The amount of equity shares I will transfer to you depends on the amount of items you provide to me. However, it’s only within one month. So, Boss Zhou, you should tightly grasp this opportunity I give to you.”
The corner of Zhou Deren’s mouth twitched as a burst of violent urge threatened to burst out of his chest. He wished he could go over and strangle Qin Luo to death, or perhaps he could directly pounce on him and kill this crazy boy with his weight. He came here already prepared to bleed dry his funds, but unexpectedly this damn boy playfully gave him a hand.
If he wanted to donate, can’t he donate money, not radishes and vinegars? Why is this stinky boy playing around with him?
He was about to say something to see if he could change Qin Luo’s mind, but Qin Luo talked first, interrupting him.
“I’m not going to ask these things from Mr. Zhou only. If someone else prepares them before Mr. Zhou, then Mr. Zhou can have them for himself.”
“You…” Zhou Deren’s crooked nose flared as he gritted his teeth, “Give me a month. If I haven’t fully prepared the items a month later, then you can consider other people. However, if you dare to play tricks, don’t say that I didn’t consider feelings from the past.”
Qin Luo’s face was cold. “If the items are inferior, I also guarantee that you will not get any of the equity shares. Aunt Liu, please see the guest off.”
Zhou Deren’s fat hand held the paper tightly at first before it loosened up and abruptly tightened up again. Finally, he gave a cold look at Qin Luo, turned around and took his men away.
Aunt Liu sent Zhou Deren, the demon pest, away. After closing the door, she came back and patted her heart again and again. “Xiao Luo, from the brief glance I have on your papers, it seems you have rice, noodles, apples, bananas, and pears listed in it. Furthermore, I think you have soy sauce and vinegars listed too. What are you going to do with that stuff?”
Qin Luo sat down with Aun Liu and repeated what he had told Zat when he was in England. However, this time, he was more specific. After she heard about what he had to say, she frowned and sighed for a long time.
Unlike other ordinary domestic servants, Aunt Liu had come into contact with different things. Qin Luo’s parents were both involved in research revolving flora and fauna, and thought they were not at home all year round, they still have a great influence on Qin Ya.
Qin Ya was also a genius child who always shared her knowledge about all kinds of genetics with people at home. Aunt Liu, who brought Qin Ya up since childhood, was naturally influenced.
Qin Luo was also brought up by Aunt Liu, so she knew this child’s character very well. Right now, the equity shares were the only source of income for the family, and Qin Luo wouldn’t joke around about it. So, it seemed to her, those apocalypse theories floating about might just come true.
