-Do I need to buy a car?,- Zhang Che pondered to himself as he took the taxi to northern Bei Du.
Thinking about it, it seemed like buying a car was necessary.
After all, taxis were not available at all times. Sometimes, when he was in a rush, having his own car would be very useful.
Moreover, it was impossible for Sun Lan to always stay at home. If she wanted to go for a trip outside, having a car would be much more convenient.
Thinking of it that way, maybe buying two cars was better…
He needed one for himself, and another for the family.
Naturally Zhang Che wouldn’t consider buying ordinary cars. He didn’t care about himself, but if his mother wanted to go out, her safety was the most important. Thus, he had to consider buying the newer car models that incorporated the use of beast world materials.
In that case, he had to make a custom order, like that ferocious beast of a car the Huang family had. Low-tier exotic beasts and ordinary mid-tier exotic beasts were unable to penetrate the car’s defense at all, ensuring a high level of safety.
However, this matter could be put aside for now. Zhang Che didn’t know anything regarding about that. It was better to wait for Huang Juyun to help find his great-aunt first, then talk to him about this matter. Having him giving suggestions would be better.
When Zhang Che rushed to the northern sector and bought the required materials to increase the Fiery Scorpion’s level, he realized he wasn’t thinking things through.
Although he managed to buy the materials, and the stores would even help with transporting them, what about storage?
He didn’t have a lab of his own yet. Even if he called Huang Tielan over, there was no way they could do anything.
Among the materials, some had to be stored at low temperatures, or they would deteriorate very easily, losing their effects.
“I should have discussed things with Tielan first…” Zhang Che slapped his forehead in frustration. He could only leave the materials at the store for now, and have them deliver the goods when he needed to use them.
Right at that moment, Huang Juyun called.
“Xiaoche, I have good news for you. It’s regarding your mother’s aunt. The people at Tian Xing City have checked things out for you. I’ll send you her contact number later, and you can go find her at Tian Xing City then.”
Zhang Che was overjoyed. When Sun Lan heard this news, she’d surely be very happy. “Thank you so much, Uncle Huang!”
Huang Juyun laughed heartily, “What’s there to thank? I already said we’re family. You’re not allowed to say thank you from now on!”
“Right, Uncle Huang, I have two matters I need your opinion on. I hope you can give me some advice.” Zhang Che didn’t stand on ceremony anymore and directly told Huang Juyun about wanting to buy cars and machinery for a lab.
“Hah, and I was thinking what it would be. No problem; I’ll link you up and have them directly send the goods to your place. Also, the villa Liu Gang’s men are staying at has the room to set up a lab. I’ll have them help you set it up,” Huang Juyun said proudly, “But, you’ll be forking out the money yourself. Your Uncle Huang won’t take care of that, hahahaha!…”
“It’s already great that Uncle Huang is helping to take care of the matters. How can I possibly ask you to pay for it?”
After ending their call, Zhang Che opened up the messages on his personal terminal. As expected, he saw that Huang Juyun had sent him a number.
He was thinking of calling his mother immediately to tell her this piece of good news, but decided to drop it.
He was going home anyway. It’d only take an hour or two. He could let his mother directly contact her aunt then, and spare her the wait.
“Ai, I made this trip for nothing…” Zhang Che sighed, shaking his head. He called for a taxi once more and headed home.
When he finally returned to the villa, Zhang Che couldn’t help but widen his eyes.
Two bold and ferocious black cars were at the gates of the villa. They were extremely similar in appearance to the one he had seen at the Huangs’ place.
-Tsk, tsk. The Huang family is really something. Just one call and the car is delivered immediately! Then, apparatuses for the lab should be here too, right?-
As he thought of that, his gaze shifted over to the neighboring villa. Indeed, he saw a large truck parked there. A few workers were moving back and forth, carrying the lab equipment one by one down from the back of the truck.
Also, a few rooms at the first level of the villa were now broken down and being connected. Renovations were being done quickly.
This efficiency was unbelievable!
“Are you Mr Zhang Che? We’ve delivered the cars. Would you please inspect them and see if there’s anything you’re unsatisfied with?”
A staffer waiting outside the villa immediately came up respectfully when Zhang Che walked closer.
Zhang Che nodded with a smile. He opened the doors and sat in the cars for a while, then asked some questions regarding the materials used for the car body. In the end, he nodded in satisfaction.
“Not bad, nothing needs to be changed. How much is it?”
“Thank you, Mr Zhang. The unit price for this car model is twenty-six thousand purple crystal points. Since you’re our VIP, you’re entitled to a ten percent discount. The total price will be forty-six thousand eight hundred purple crystal points.”
Zhang Che nodded. He truly thought this price wasn’t very expensive.
As introduced by the staffer earlier, around fifteen thousand grams of purple-gold crystal was used and added to the car body’s composition. Adding in other various new materials, it could be said that it was very worth its price.
Zhang Che opened his personal terminal and completed the payment. These two latest car models with top-tier armor belonged to him from now on.
As for other administrative work, naturally Zhang Che didn’t have to worry about it. The sellers had arranged everything.
When the staffers drove the two cars into the villa, Sun Lan, who was taking an afternoon nap, was alarmed. She came out to take a look and nearly got a fright.
When she found out the price of the two cars, she received a fright so big that she was at a loss for words for a long time.
Over forty thousand purple crystal points! Converting them to Alliance dollars, it was close to five hundred million! And all they got for it was two cars!
Some time ago, she was still fretting about money for the genetic repair medicine to keep her illness under control. Now, her son could actually buy two cars with such astronomical price tags without even flinching!
A dose of the new genetic repair medicine cost around a million Alliance dollars, and a car like this was equivalent to over two hundred of them!
Sun Lan felt this was unreal. She asked Zhang Che in disbelief, “Xiaoche, since when did you have so much money?”
Zhang Che smiled and replied, “Mom, this little bit of money isn’t much. Your son is now a mid-tier beastmaster! Do you remember the Unicorn that healed your illness? That fellow is worth a few hundred of these cars!”
That was true. Although the Unicorn was only at four-star legend-quality, it was an extremely rare healing-type beast. It’s worth couldn’t be measured with conventional standards. A few million purple crystal points was totally a fair price for it.
To shift Sun Lan’s attention away, Zhang Che told her about the good news he had received from Huang Juyun. Afterwards, he opened his personal terminal and sent his great-aunt’s contact number to Sun Lan.
Seeing Sun Lan almost weeping from happiness as she dialed the number, Zhang Che silently left the courtyard and walked over to the neighboring villa.
More time was needed to finish renovating his lab. However, Zhang Che settled the bill first regardless.
Later on, his mother surely wouldn’t be able to wait to go to Tian Xing City. He wouldn’t have the time to waste here.
Compared to the super luxurious cars that used large amounts of purple-gold crystal, the lab set-up was much cheaper, although it wasn’t actually very cheap. Including the fees to set up the lab, it only cost Zhang Che around five hundred purple crystal points.
After leaving some instructions to Liu Gang and the others, Zhang Che went back to the other villa. Sun Lan had already ended her call with her aunt.
Although her eyes were red, and tears filled her face, her smile couldn’t be hidden.
“Xiaoche, quickly go buy air tickets. Let’s go to Tian Xing City right now to find your aunt!”
Zhang Che nodded. He knew his mother would want to go to Tian Xing City immediately once she learned the news about her aunt.
