The next morning, in Tang Hao’s office.
Liu Yan was updating him about the company’s progress in the past month.
“I didn’t expect that Vitality Sports Drink is so popular, Chairman Tang. It’s only been in the market for a little more than a month,” Liu Yan said emotionally.
Sales of Vitality Sports Drink grew faster than Masculine Wind Aphrodisiac when the latter first launched.
The sole purpose of marketing the sports drink was to topple Yu Lin Group, but the product became a runaway success.
If they could increase the production capacity, the sports drink would definitely be able to corner one-hundred percent of the market. It could be a flagship product of Haotian Group, just like Bingji Beauty Cream or Masculine Wind Aphrodisiac.
‘How many more wondrous recipes does Chairman Tang have?’ Liu Yan was very curious.
Other than the sports drink, the sobriety medicine and hair growth tonic also reported spectacular sales.
Liu Yan was thoroughly impressed by each of those products.
Her admiration for her boss’s abilities became respect.
Tang Hao smiled. “It’s all thanks to the advertising and promotion campaigns. Of course, the product has to be good too. Take good care of the beverage company!”
“Yes, Chairman Tang!”
After reporting about the other companies, she left the office.
Tang Hao sat on his chair, browsing through several documents when his phone started ringing. The call was from his maternal grandfather.
He sat up straight and answered the call.
“Hello, Grandpa!” Tang Hao greeted with a smile.
“Hey, Lil Hao!” His grandfather’s hoarse voice was heard over the phone.
“Is there anything, Grandpa?”
“Are you free later? You can come over if you are! Dazhu and his wife are here with their baby. You should come and see!” Grandpa said.
Tang Hao remembered that Gao Ying had given birth to a baby boy not too long ago.
“Alright, I’ll be there later.” Tang Hao immediately agreed to it.
He was planning on visiting Yan’er in Dragonrock Village in two days anyway, so he would combine both visits in one.
He arrived at the village a while later.
He could see from afar that many people were crowding in front of Grandpa’s house.
Grandpa and Grandma were sitting next to the door, and next to them was First Uncle and his family. Many villagers focused their attention on the baby in Grandpa’s arms.
“You’re here, Lil Hao!” The villagers greeted Tang Hao eagerly when they saw him.
“Lil Hao!” Bro Dazhu and his wife also greeted him.
“Congratulations!” Tang Hao said.
Shi Dazhu laughed. He took the baby from Grandpa’s hands and placed him in Tang Hao’s arms. “Here, let your Uncle carry you, my dear Yi’er.”
Tang Hao laughed drily when he heard “Uncle”.
Before he knew it, he was already someone else’s elder.
He looked at the cute baby in his arms. His features were delicate.
“Good Yi’er. Here, let Uncle give you something,” Tang Hao said as he took out a jade pendant and placed it in the baby’s hand.
“Oh, you shouldn’t have, Lil Hao!” Dazhu quickly pushed his hand away.
“Don’t worry! It’s just a small gift.” Tang Hao insisted on giving the baby the pendant. “Let him wear this, and he’ll grow up safe and healthy.”
“Thank you, Lil Hao,” Dazhu said after Tang Hao did not allow him to decline the gift.
Gao Ying also thanked Tang Hao for the pendant.
Tang Hao gave the baby back to the couple and sat down next to his grandparents. They chatted for a while.
After that, he went to Yan’er’s house.
“Brother Hao! Brother Hao!”
Yan’er happily ran down the stairs when she knew that Tang Hao was there to visit her.
She was casually dressed in a white T-shirt and shorts.
“Look at this, Brother Hao, I’ve just received my letter of acceptance.” She took out a letter from behind her. It had the Z University emblem on it.
“I’ll still be your junior!” Yan’er smiled sweetly.
“Silly girl…” Tang Hao chuckled.
Yan’er obtained excellent results in the gaokao. She could have gone to the two major universities in the Capital, but she chose Z University anyway.
“There’s still another month before the semester starts. Enjoy yourself in the meantime. I’ll fetch you to school by then!” Tang Hao said with a smile.
“Mm!” Yan’er nodded.
“Right, this is for you.” Tang Hao gave her a small box that contained a Jade Bone Pill, then explained its functions to her.
“It’s that amazing? Thank you, Brother Hao!”
Yan’er’s bright eyes sparkled with excitement. She smiled, tiptoed, and pecked Tang Hao on his cheek.
She smiled bashfully and ran back upstairs.
Zhang Hongfang witnessed all that from the kitchen. She smiled and mumbled, “That girl has finally become brave.”
After saying goodbye to his grandparents and Shi Dazhu, Tang Hao left Dragonrock Village.
When he returned to the city, he looked at his watch and realized that it was almost lunchtime.
He took out his phone, found Liu Bingyao’s number, hesitated for a while, but eventually dialed it.
“Hello!” Liu Bingyao’s gentle and sweet voice was heard over the phone.
“Are you free? Can we have lunch together?”
“Mm!” She immediately agreed without thinking.
After a brief pause, she continued, “But you’ll have to wait for me for a while… I’m still lazing in bed!” She said rather embarrassedly.
Tang Hao went to her house. She came out after about twenty minutes.
She had spent some time dressing up. She wore a white dress which revealed her long and slender legs and a pair of crystal high heels.
She was indescribably beautiful, like a fairy that descended from the heavens.
“Tang Hao!” She called his name as she got close.
Tang Hao opened the car door for her, then sat in the driver’s seat.
“New Magical Kitchen?”
Liu Bingyao shook her head. “How about we go somewhere else? We’ve been there before, the one where I bought you lunch.”
Tang Hao thought for a while and remembered which one it was.
He started the car and drove there.
Liu Bingyao, sitting in the passenger seat, turned her head, and stared at Tang Hao.
Her brows were slightly furrowed, and she seemed dejected.
‘We rarely meet, but every time we do, he seems so distant.’
She was smart enough to know what was going on, and that had caused her worries.
‘Should I be a little more daring?
‘Would that be inappropriate?’
Her brows were subconsciously furrowed even more tightly as she struggled internally.
Eventually, she arrived at a conclusion. ‘Perhaps it’s best to remain in our current situation! I’m happy enough if I get to look at him.’
She felt much better after arriving at that thought.
“What’s wrong?” Tang Hao asked when he saw that she was looking at him intently.
“It’s nothing!” She lifted her chin and smiled.
The gloom on her brows cleared up once she smiled. Her eyes were curved like crescent moons.
“I can’t wait for lunch. Ah, right! We rarely go out together. How about you accompany me on a shopping trip, just like last time?” She said coyly.
“Alright!” Tang Hao agreed to it.
After lunch, they walked down the street for the next few hours.
Tang Hao sent her home and gave her a Jade Bone Pill.
