Si Yiyan said calmly, “According to what I know, the tonic soups that Lanxin Cosmetics are selling to customers are very popular and the results when combined with our skincare products are great. There are even some customers who are willing to purchase them at a hefty price. After two years of refining and making amendments to the recipes, we’ve almost perfected it.
“One of the Traditional Chinese Medicine skincare products under Lanxin Cosmetics has become extremely popular overseas and Du Ruo has also gained fame and recognition, though she still lacks far behind Old Mr. Du and her father. However, everyone’s saying that they’re a family of renowned physicians and that Du Ruo will become an expert in Traditional Chinese Medicine skincare sooner or later.
“You’ve been making preparations to expand into the health supplements industry for the past two years. You’ve also established a long term partnership with lots of herbal cultivation farms. You’ve even flown to Germany to visit the renowned machinery company VTS and done your research. I reckon VTS has already begun manufacturing the ideal devices that you want. You’ve also hired technicians who specialize in the health supplements industry and secretly arranged for elite staff training.
“The Lanxin Investments has already become the most influential investment company in the country and there have been lots of overseas tycoons who have set their sights on Z Nation’s investment market. There have been lots of new clients who registered with your company, right?”
Wen Xinya nodded and said, “You’re right. Ever since Lanxin Cosmetics was established, I’ve begun preparing for the expansion to the health supplements industry together with Yan Shaoqing. Seems like I can’t hide anything from you.”
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “The most important things to prepare before the establishment of a brand, are the recipes of products, influence, machinery supervision, as well as funding. You’ve got everything ready. In that case, what’s there to be worried about? Besides, you still have an important trump card.”
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and said, “You’re right. I was just too worried about nothing. Although I’ve already made preparations in advance, it still takes time to dive into the health supplements industry. The details are important as well, and it’s just the right time to start preparing now!”
Si Yiyan gave his nod of approval and said, “It’s indeed the right time to start preparing for the management of health products now. The time will be ripe once the product can be launched in the market.”
Upon hearing his words, Wen Xinya heaved a sigh of relief and stared at Si Yiyan with gratitude in her eyes. “Fortunately, I have you to give me advice and pointers. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have made it to where I am today in such a short amount of time.”
Although she had memories of both lifetimes, she was completely inexperienced in managing businesses. Throughout the two years of her entrepreneurship, Si Yiyan had given her lots of advice and eyeopeners.
The Wen Corporation had already restricted her perspectives and she had already hit a saturation point where she could not achieve anything greater. However, Si Yiyan seemed to be giving her endless eyeopeners and constantly reminded her of her goals.
Si Yiyan said, “I actually didn’t really help you much. You’ve achieved all of these through your own hard work. I’m proud of you.”
“Don’t flatter me. My goal is to build my own business empire where I call the shots. I want to work side by side with you. I’m still very far off from that goal and there’s still a long way ahead for me.” Although Si Yiyan had never given her any help on the surface, he had in fact, supported her in many other ways. The reason that Lanxin Cosmetics could achieve tremendous progress within such a short period of time was that he had invested a large sum of money. He had also given her help and got rid of her obstacles when she was building Lanxin Cosmetics.
Si Yiyan smiled, his eyes glowing like a vibrant color. “I believe that that day will come. I’ll be waiting for you at the peak.”
“I won’t make you wait for long.”
Filled with sweetness, Si Yiyan kissed her brow affectionately and said, “I’m willing to wait, regardless of how long it may take.”
Wen Xinya kissed Si Yiyan on the lips gently and said joyously, “That’s what you said!”
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “Yes!”
“By the way, Si Yiyan, is there something on? Why did you ask if I had any plans for the next few days?” asked Wen Xinya, who knew that he would never ask such a question for no reason.
Si Yiyan answered, “I was initially planning to take you out on a beach vacation. However, the cooperation with the government has just begun and I reckon I won’t have much time. It’s rare that you get a winter break. You shouldn’t waste it feeling all flustered and busy. That’s why I wanted to take the chance to bring you to Nan Tong for some fun.”
During the winter break two years ago, Zhou Tianyu and the rest of her friends went on a beach vacation to Hainan, which was very much to her envy. He had been thinking about taking her on another vacation, though he had yet to find the chance to.
“Work is more important. We’ll have plenty of chances to go on a vacation in the future,” said Wen Xinya, who was incredibly touched about how concerned he was about her despite his busy schedule. He even made compromises to arrange a vacation for her.
She again recalled one of their trips to Nan Tong for Valentine’s Day where Si Yiyan helped her groom her hair and do her makeup. The Fengxiang instrument which he had made himself, was his gift to her. It was a wonderful trip. She was looking forward to the next one.
Si Yiyan said, “We’re not going there just for fun. There’s a private auction there, which means a lot to the Xiasi Group. I’d like to take the chance to take you out and see the world!”
He had gradually begun blending into her world and she had now stepped onto the path that she belonged to—the path towards success.
The more ties they had with each other, the lesser the chances of her escaping his side.
“Si Yiyan, you don’t actually have to go along with my ideas all the time. I’m not an insensible girl and I don’t need your company all the time!” Apart from the time that he had spent working, he spent almost all his free time with her. In fact, he could even cast work aside and spend time with her sometimes. She could not help but feel a little vexed because she felt that she did not put in enough effort for him.
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “You’re not an insensible girl, but I’m an insensible lad. I want to stay by your side all the time. I’m just adhering to my own wishes.”
Wen Xinya was still a little troubled.
“Enough, stop overthinking! You’re so young, why do you have so much to worry about? You can always repay me with your body in the future!” Si Yiyan interjected, stressing on the word “body” with a sheepish grin.
Wen Xinya glared at him and chided. “Hooligan!”
