Chapter 8.1

He Jianxun followed them to the small, separate courtyard meeting room.

Once he had seen who the ‘Young Master Li’ really was, he finally satisfied his curiosity and left.

If he didn’t leave, he was afraid he’d get the cold shoulder from his best friend. He couldn’t afford it.

Shortly afterwards, Zou Ming and Fang Xiyan left one after the other and the sliding wooden door closed slowly, leaving Li Qingzhou and Liu Bohuai alone in the room.

The room was sunny and well-lit, a clean and good location to discuss a cooperation.

Yet neither of the two men in the room had any intention of speaking for the time being.

Liu Bohuai had by now collected his astonished, shocked and disbelieving emotions.

He gazed at Li Qingzhou with a calm expression on his face.

Although the young master of the Li family had had a little encounter with him because of the car accident, this was the first time he had looked at him.

Li Qingzhou was a good-looking man with soft, dark, slightly curly hair, phoenix eyes and rosy lips….

But probably due to his health, his face was a pale white and his eyes were mostly cold and deep, making him seem distant and difficult to get along with.

Upon learning of Liu Bohuai’s decision to meet Li Qingzhou in person, Zou Ming had immediately presented Liu Bohuai with detailed information about him.

— Lost as a child, found by his parents in high school, skipped university to graduate in computer science……

And was now the President of The Li Group Corporation.

He was young, bold, ruthless, and unforgiving.

Some of the senior members of The Li Group Corporation had gone from being contemptuous and disdainful at first to now being overwhelmed and afraid to move. Even the Li family’s second son was under his thumb.

Such a man…..

Liu Bohuai’s eyes were complicated.

Although he had been prepared before arriving at the Lan Yuan Clubhouse, he didn’t expect the unexpected — not only was he seeing, he was also hearing.

In the transparent bubble, a small man in the same suit sat cross-legged, with his little head looking left and right, looking curious.

At the same time, compliments about the freshness and elegance of the layout of the Lan Yuan Clubhouse continued to come from the little man in the bubble.

After a while,

[…… Why does he keep staring at me? Is he looking because of how handsome I am?]

–The little man in the bubble put his hands together at his chin and a little flower blossomed.

Liu Bohuai’s hand twirling the Buddhist beads gave a start, and then he averted his eyes without a trace.

[Although I’m a natural beauty with unmistakable radiance, he is also good-looking. Huh…… he has a good nose and a good temperament, and he’s wearing glasses without a prescription.]

[Wow, he also has a string of Buddhist beads…. Huh, why isn’t it spinning?]

The little man in the bubble changed position and his whole little body lay on the wall of the bubble as if he was looking carefully through a window at the furnishings inside….

Liu Bohuai’s chest rose and fell visibly and he rewound the Buddhist beads that had been wrapped around his palm around his wrist, but his heart wasn’t calm.

He opened his mouth, “I wonder what compensation Mr. Li would like from the Liu family?”

Li Qingzhou said bluntly, “I would like the Li family to work with the Liu family on a project to develop a new energy car series.”

The Liu Group, with its LIN Technologies Ltd, its already large research team, and its complete automotive production chain…

The Liu Group now had first-hand knowledge of the development of new energy vehicles.

This was the ‘easy’ opportunity that Li Qingzhou needed.

The little man in the air bubble sat in peace without any thoughts.

Liu Bohuai: “Mr. Li has a big appetite.”

Li Qingzhou said, “The Li family wants to be in Yanjing at this stage.”

“If we can get on board the Liu family’s big ship, even without the land along the outskirts in the northern suburbs, we are sure we can get what we want.”

He then changed his tone: “Of course, it is true that the compensation I am asking for is too much, but it’s not that the Li family won’t give anything.”

“New energy vehicles will never be the end of the automotive sector.”

“In past history, people have experienced two systematic changes in the energy power of transportation.”

“The first was the use of coal and the steam engine, and the second change was oil and the internal combustion engine.”

“I believe that a third change is approaching– the replacement of oil and the internal combustion engine with electricity, power cells, fuel cells, etc. and bringing humanity into the age of clean energy.”

“But this is only the development of automotive power.”

“Why don’t we consider applying AI technology to automobiles as well?”

Leaning back in his chair, Liu Bohuai said with a bemused expression, “In theory, AI can indeed be applied to cars, but that’s all there is to it.”

“The country hasn’t yet had a single scientific research result with regard to AI in cars.”

“Moreover, as far as I know, the Li family simply produces cars, parts, etc. and is not involved in intelligence research and development…..”

“Is Mr. Li trying to convince me with empty words?”

Li Qingzhou: “Just because we are not involved now doesn’t mean we won’t be.”

“What’s more, I can assure Mr. Liu — the theory of automotive AI is mature, all that’s missing is development and production.”

Liu Bohuai was slightly surprised.

He said, “There is no theory published in the three major international paper search databases, so how would Mr. Li prove it?”

Li Qingzhou: “Naturally, with an authentic document.”

He opened the laptop he had with him.

— It contained information on theoretical research on automotive AI that he had imported from the system long before he came to the Lan Yuan Clubhouse.

This was his old research.

He had cut down, then modified it, and extracted the theory that was most in line with modern national science and technology.

Li Qingzhou said as Liu Bohuai browsed through the material, “I’m not in a hurry to enter into a partnership with The Liu Group right away. After all, there are things that need to be tested.”

“And now is the right time and I trust Mr Liu’s judgment.”
