“Sigh.” Zhou Chao rubbed his head, still feeling the dizziness from last night’s drinking. He glanced at Jiang Li, who was in his arms, and a trace of affection couldn’t help but show in his eyes.

Zhou Chao was about to get up when Jiang Li woke up.

“You’re awake. Do you want to sleep a bit more? I’ll make some breakfast!” Zhou Chao said and bent down to kiss Jiang Li on the forehead.

“Mmm, I’m so hungry!”

“I know, you little glutton!” Zhou Chao got up, put on his pajamas, and headed downstairs. Jiang Li watched Zhou Chao’s back with a happy smile.

“Two tigers love to dance, while the little bunny obediently eats carrots!” Zhou Chao sang as he cooked steak, repeating these lines over and over again.

“Hey, this song is so catchy. It’s all your fault, Jiang Li!” Zhou Chao remembered that last night before Jiang Li went to sleep, she had been watching short videos on her phone, and he ended up watching them with her. The result was that he was now humming this tune. He shook his head, dispelling his wandering thoughts, and focused on making breakfast.

“Sleepyhead, get up and have breakfast!” Zhou Chao shouted loudly in the stairwell. It took two or three minutes before he saw Jiang Li’s figure appear.

“Mmm, what delicious thing did you make? It smells so good!” Jiang Li’s appetite grew as she sensed the aroma filling the air.

“I cooked two pieces of steak, highland corn, heart-shaped fried eggs, and milk!”

“Mmm, this looks so amazing!” Looking at the steak in front of her, accompanied by a heart-shaped fried egg, the presentation was beautiful. Jiang Li couldn’t help but take out her phone and start taking pictures.

“Eat quickly; it won’t taste as good if it gets cold!” Zhou Chao looked at Jiang Li with an affectionate expression.

“Brother Chao- I’ll be going out for a while later!” Jiang Li, who was in the middle of eating her steak, suddenly raised her head and said.

“Do you have something to do?”

“Not really, it’s just that my best friend hasn’t seen me in a while, and she wants to go shopping together!”

“How about I go with you?” Zhou Chao looked at Jiang Li with anticipation.

“Brother Chao, how about next time?” Jiang Li hesitated for a moment and then declined Zhou Chao’s offer.

“Alright, fine! If you need me, give me a call!” Zhou Chao didn’t get upset that Jiang Li declined his offer to go together. It had been a while since she and her best friend met, and there were probably some things they wanted to discuss privately. Giving each other space was important.

“Love you!” Jiang Li made a heart shape with her thumb and index finger, and Zhou Chao responded back with the same gesture.

Soon, the two of them finished breakfast. While Zhou Chao was cleaning up the table, Jiang Li went upstairs to change clothes. When Zhou Chao finished tidying up, Jiang Li had already come downstairs in a new outfit.

“Ah Li, would you like to take a car? It would be more convenient,” Zhou Chao suggested after some thought, and Jiang Li nodded in agreement. Having a car would indeed make things easier, especially when transporting clothes.

Zhou Chao handed Jiang Li the keys to the Lamborghini Venom GT, and she accepted them with a kiss on his cheek. Then, she headed to the garage. Shortly after, Zhou Chao heard the sound of the car leaving.

“All, another day alone at home!” Zhou Chao lay on the sofa, feeling bored. He watched his pet cat, Shoufu, who had just finished eating cat food and was grooming itself. Zhou Chao picked up Shoufu and held it close.

“Shoufu, let’s see if you can bring me some good luck today!” Zhou Chao petted Shoufu while opening the system warehouse to check the New Year special gift he had received earlier.

“System, open the gift!”

“Congratulations, Host, on acquiring: Two 12-inch wafer production lines, technical data for 16-inch wafers, an 80% stake in Sany Group, and a steel mill in Northeast China!”

As Zhou Chao looked at the items he had received, he couldn’t help but stand up from the sofa. With the lithography machine and wafers now in his possession, the day when he could independently manufacture top-tier semiconductors was getting closer.

Meanwhile, at the headquarters of Sany Group in Hunan Province, in the office of the company’s president.

“What? How is this possible? 80% of the company’s shares have already been acquired, and the acquisition price was higher than the market price? Fine, I understand!” Qin Qingshun, the president of Sany Group, lay helplessly on his chair. He had just received a phone call informing him that the company’s shares had been acquired, and now he no longer had control over the group.

Qin Qingshun sat up from the sofa, took out his phone, and scrolled through the contacts. After a moment of contemplation, he decided to make a call.

“Hello, Lao Chen?”

“Lao Qin, I’m sorry!”

“It’s alright, I understand your intentions. Can you give me the other party’s phone number and name?” The person on the other end of the line did not immediately respond to Qin Qingshun’s request but remained silent.

“Alright, 1 get it, Lao Chen.” Qin Qingshun was about to hang up when the person on the other end spoke.

“Wait, Lao Qin, I’ve sent you the name and phone number! Take care of yourself!” With that, the call was disconnected. Qin Qingshun looked at the information displayed on his phone, showing the name “Zhou Chao”. He fell into a brief silence.

Meanwhile, Zhou Chao was examining a document folder. It contained the delivery certificates for the two wafer production lines he had received as part of his check-in rewards, with the location being specified as Hong Kong Island. “You truly have incredible powers!” Zhou Chao couldn’t help but marvel at the system’s capabilities. magic

“Buzz, buzz, buzz!” Zhou Chao’s phone vibrated on the table, displaying an unfamiliar phone number. Zhou Chao picked it up and answered.

“Hello, who’s calling?”

“Hello, Mr. Zhou, I’m Qin Qingshun from Sany Group!” Zhou Chao recognized the name immediately; it was the president of Sany Group.

“Hello, President Qin.”

“Mr. Zhou, you’re truly remarkable. You’ve quietly acquired all the shares of the company except mine. Tell me, Mr. Zhou, when will you remove me from my position?” Hearing the somewhat desolate voice on the other end, Zhou Chao had a rough idea of the situation.

“President Qin, I believe there’s a misunderstanding. Acquiring your company’s shares doesn’t mean I intend to take over the management. The affairs of the group will still require your careful attention in the future,” Zhou Chao replied, leaving Qin Qingshun momentarily silent.

“Aren’t you worried that I might engage in underhanded dealings and embezzlement?” Zhou Chao chuckled at Qin Qingshun’s words.

“Sany Group is a company built by you, President Qin. I believe you will only work to make it better.”

“Mr. Zhou, you are truly amazing. No wonder you completed the acquisition so swiftly and silently in just one day!” Qin Qingshun’s mood had improved considerably. At least now the group was more centralized, and there weren’t as many shareholders as before.

“Haha, you flatter me. I believe the group is in good hands with you as its leader.”

“If you have the time, Mr. Zhou, would you consider visiting Hunan Province in person to have a face-to-face conversation?”

“Sure, I’ll contact you when I have the time to visit Hunan Province.”

After a few more pleasantries, the call ended. Zhou Chao put the documents back into the system warehouse and decided to study the technical data for the 16-inch wafers later, once the wafer factory was up and running.

“The steel mill?” Zhou Chao had a rough idea of how this would unfold. He wasn’t in a hurry; all he needed to do was wait.

Leaning against the sofa, Zhou Chao continued to stroke his cat, waiting patiently. Less than 10 minutes later, Zhou Chao’s phone rang again.

Seeing the incredibly short phone number, Zhou Chao answered it immediately.
