Chapter 13 Returns

“Junior brother, can you sell me some of your energy blocks in the future, I don’t need a discount, I’ll buy them at the original price, no, I’ll give you 10% more, I’ll give you 1100 star coins for a level 4 energy block.” Cheng Wenkang said impatiently.

“No need. If you want, I’ll give you a 20% discount.” Cheng Wenkang and Sheng Heng were friends, it wouldn’t be good if he charged two different prices.

When Sheng Heng heard the word discount, his brows furrowed a little.

“Really? Little junior, you’re my brother from now on, if you need anything just tell me, I’ll go through water and fire for you.” Cheng Wenkang said with a big smile, “Then I’ll pre-order ten pieces.”

With that, Cheng Wenkang transferred the money on the spot, the market price of a master level 4 energy block was 2,000 stars, with a 20% discount, it was 1,600, 10 pieces was 16,000, together with the 10,000 stars Sheng Heng had just given him, Yan Hao had 26,000 stars, enough for him to go out and buy parts to assemble a mecha model.

“Hao Hao, you’re finally out of poverty.” He Shao congratulated.

“En, I’ll treat you to dinner.” He Shao had helped him a lot this time and Yan Hao was very grateful.

“Do you want me to introduce you to business?” The last time they had been buying the materials, Sheng Heng had listened for a while, so he knew that Yan Hao was short of money. If it were just him and Fatty, they wouldn’t be able to consume all the energy blocks Yan Hao made and Yan Hao would have to find another buyer, hence in order to prevent him from getting ripped off, or being targeted by someone, he might as well help him sell them.

“Is it possible?” Yan Hao looked over in surprise. Staring at the extra 20,000 star coins in his account just now, he was already calculating how much he could make in a day.

The raw material of a level 4 energy block was 200 star coins. If all of them were sold at 1,600 star coins, one energy block would net one 1,400 star coins and if he made 100, no, 50 of them a day, he would net 70,000 star coins a day. Yan Hao’s eyes turned into the shape of star coins as he calculated.

In his previous life, although he had never been short of money, all his attention had been focused on competing with Yan Fei, so he spent all his time researching and not thinking about making money, hence although he didn’t lack money, he had never felt like a tycoon. But now that he had stepped out of that situation, he could do what he liked and make money at the same time. It was a great feeling.

The look on Yan Hao’s face was so obvious that the other three couldn’t help but smile, this was really a money lover.

“Yes, I’ll take as much as you can make and sell them for you later.” Sheng Heng knew Yan Hao wouldn’t let him do it for nothing, so he added, “But, I’ll charge you a 20% handling fee.”

“No problem.” Yan Hao didn’t care at all. He had originally sold it to Sheng Heng at a discount of 20%, so he would just take it as selling it to him at full price.

Cheng Wenkang looked at Sheng Heng in surprise: Since when did boss need this much money?

“I’ll draw up a contract for you later.” Sheng Heng said.

“There’s no need, I trust you.” Yan Hao said.

“Thank you for your trust, but the contract still has to be signed.” Sheng Heng insisted, “Little junior, in this world, when it comes to matters of interest, it must be written in clear black and white. Don’t give people the chance to hurt you. That way, friendships will last longer.”

“Really?” Yan Hao never heard that before.

“I agree with that.” He Shao agreed, “My family is in business and whether it’s relatives or classmates, if there’s a profit involved, there’s always a contract. If you do, it won’t hurt the feelings between the two parties, if you don’t, it’s easy to have a falling out.”

Although Yan Hao didn’t understand, he was willing to listen to advice: “Okay, I’ll sign it. In the future I’ll always sign it.”

“Good boy.” Sheng Heng couldn’t help but rub the top of Yan Hao’s hair.

He Shao froze for a moment, his eyes subconsciously sliding back and forth between the two.

“Hao Hao, that, there’s still time, do you want me to go out with you to buy raw materials?” He Shao suggested.

“Okay. Then senior, we’ll be leavy first.” Yan Hao was at his most energetic at that moment, so he said goodbye to Sheng Heng and left with He Shao.

After the two left, Cheng Wenkang couldn’t help but ask Sheng Heng, “Boss, do you want our little junior to be your family’s exclusive mech builder?”

Sheng Heng froze for a moment, not knowing how to answer.

After dinner.

He Shao, who had eaten an unusually satisfying meal, sat down on the bed in his dormitory while Yan Hao was working on making an energy block with the raw materials he had bought this morning. In the time it took for He Shao to roll over, burp and stretch, the first energy block in Yan Hao’s hand had already been largely formed.

“Hao Hao, what do you think of that Senior Sheng Heng?” He Shao suddenly asked.

“He’s good.” Yan Hao replied without looking back.

“I guess there aren’t any bad guys in your eyes, right?” He Shao said in a low voice.

“Huh?” Yan Hao turned his head to look at him, not having heard his words clearly.

“Hao Hao, do you know what the relationship between a mech master and a mech builder is?” He Shao asked seriously.

“What is it?” Yan Hao was confused.

“The relationship between protecting and being protected.”

“Yes, mech masters fighting in outer space with their mechs, fighting against foreign enemies and zergs, are indeed protecting us.” Remembering the veterans he had met in his past life, a bottle of emotions stirred in Yan Hao’s heart.

“Wrong, wrong, wrong, you got it wrong.” He Shao corrected, “For ordinary people, mecha masters are the protectors, but for mecha masters, we mecha makers are the ones who protect them.”

Yan Hao was stunned, the movement in his hand stopped unconsciously.

“Think about it, when mech masters are fighting, they are basically in outer space. In space, the only thing they can rely on is their own mechs, if something goes wrong with their mechs at that time, they can’t find anyone to repair them. So for every mech master, they need an exclusive mech builder who can give them complete peace of mind that their mech will not have any problems on the battlefield.” He Shao said.

“An exclusive mech builder?”

“We’re just starting out now, so you might not see it, but after a while we’re going to have public classes with the mech department, or have a practical class with them and then you’ll discover that our Mech Building Department is very popular. The mecha masters are going to be all over us.”

“Really?”

“Of course.”

“Oh.” Yan Hao expressed his understanding then turned around to continue working on his energy block.

“So I think this Senior Sheng Heng is so nice to you because he wants you to be his exclusive mech builder.” He Shao analyzed.

Yan Hao’s hand stiffened, but quickly returned to normal.

“Hao Hao, don’t take it lightly. We are geniuses, we have to choose well.” He Shao’s family was a business family, so he knew how to make the most of a rare commodity.

“I think Senior Sheng Heng is very nice. If he wants me to, I’ll promise to be his partner.” Yan Hao said without even thinking about it.

“I feel like I’ve been talking for nothing for half a day, how come you’re so gullible?” He Shao sighed in distress.

Yan Hao laughed then continued to pick up the energy block to compress the energy. He didn’t have a good eye for people, and he didn’t know if Sheng Heng was being nice to him because of the reason He Shao had stated, but Sheng Heng was the first person who had been nice to him since his rebirth, so if he needed something in return, then he would give it. Moreover it was important to have a partner, so why not Sheng Heng.

  1. Thanks for the new chapter!

    I really hope Sheng Heng is able to leave a deeper impression on Yan Hao soon. Cheng Wengkang has an amazing knack for messing up each of Sheng Heng’s plans!

  2. 20% “handler” fee? That’s insane. If this were real world, his taking advantage wouldn’t result in “closeness”. It would result in feeling used. I don’t like this ML. He’s got a gross “he doesn’t know he’s beautiful” fetish, it seems. Like if the MC ever owned his own skill, the ML would think he was an overly arrogant a-hole.
