Starting With A Space Battleship - Chapter 37
Chapter 37: Be A Matchmaker
Ye Hongyan didn’t know who Li Xiaonian was, but she still answered truthfully. “I’m fine, but they robbed me of the sows I’ve been feeding so hard.”
“I’m glad you’re fine.” After a pause, Li Xiaonian organized his language before he said, “My name is Li Xiaonian. You may not know me, but I owe your husband, Shi Tianning a favor. I’ve heard about his death. I’m sorry for your loss. I can repay the debts he owes. But I have a condition. You must be my family’s housekeeper and take care of my family’s diet and daily life for me.”
“…” Ye Hongyan was stunned, but she had no intention at all to serve others as a housekeeper.
Just as she was hesitating, Li Xiaonian continued, “Of course, you can refuse me. I’ll give you two choices.”
“The first choice is that if you refuse to be my housekeeper, for the sake of your husband, I can still lend you 12 million yuan, but you must repay me with the principal and the interest within ten years.”
“And the second is that if you are willing to be my housekeeper, after working for me for five years, you won’t have to repay me any money. In addition, I’ll give you a monthly salary of 8,000 yuan. Which one do you prefer?”
Li Xiaonian clearly remembered that although it was Ye Hongyan’s most difficult days now, she had no intention to be a housekeeper.
Ye Hongyan pondered for a long time before she gritted her teeth and said, “Thank you, I choose the first. If you are willing to lend me money, I promise I’ll repay you within five years. If I can’t, I’m willing to serve you as a servant for a lifetime.”
The historical trajectory had changed.
Li Xiaonian was a little disappointed, but still said, “Okay, then I’ll transfer the money to your mobile wallet later. Good luck.”
Hanging up the phone, Li Xiaonian transferred 13 million yuan to Ye Hongyan through her cell phone number and sent her a text message. “The extra one million is my investment in you. Remember to pay me back.”
He had finally earned 50 million yuan, but soon, he paid 15.4 million yuan for the villa and now spent another 13 million yuan at a time. He really grudged his money, but he didn’t regret spending the money. After all, he owed Ye Hongyan a debt of gratitude.
The taxi driver had clearly heard what Li Xiaonian said on the phone.
Oh my god, this guy spent tens of millions of yuan so easily. He must be damn rich!
With this in mind, the driver said with a fawning smile, “Young Master, if you are looking for a housekeeper, my niece is a good choice. She just graduated this year, majoring in financial management. She is pretty, diligent, and capable. If you are not satisfied with her, you can fire her at any time.”
In the eyes of the driver, Li Xiaonian was young and rich. More importantly, he was very generous. The driver guessed Li Xiaonian must be a young master of a large consortium. If Li Xiaonian fell for his niece, his entire family could gain many profits.
Knowing what the driver was thinking, Li Xiaonian refused flatly, “The housekeeper my family needs should be very professional. Non-professionals are not considered.”
Sister Ye didn’t want to serve as his housekeeper, but he still needed one.
So Li Xiaonian immediately sent a message to Ling Baifei: “Bai, can you find a housekeeper for me? The salary will be 20% higher than the market price, but the housekeeper should be professional and can take care of my mother.”
Just as Li Xiaonian expected, after the message was sent, he received no response for a long time. Needless to say, Bai must still be in the world of “Star Wind”.
On the way home, Li Xiaonian went to the vegetable market and bought a lot of ingredients.
After he got home, he made a rich lunch for his family, and then hurriedly entered the world of “Star Wind” again.
System: Welcome back to “Star Wind”. Enjoy yourself.
At this time, the Skyfire Base was already on a warpath.
All players had returned to the base from the wilderness.
Under the deliberate propaganda of the Wolf Walk Guild, everyone had known that the Skyfire Base was endangered because of Li Xiaonian, so everyone was filled with indignation against him.
“Fuck, June is really nasty. Now because of him, all of us had to take an SSS-level mission. This is just like forcing all of us to delete our accounts and restart the game…”
“Yeah, we’re really fucking unlucky. If I meet June, I’m gonna tear him apart alive.”
“Now the exit of the Skyfire Base has been blocked. Even level 10 players won’t be able to leave the base.”
“God, if the base is destroyed, all our attributes will drop by 30%. This punishment is too harsh!”
Facing the indignant players, Li Xiaonian was a little embarrassed, so he found a mask to hide his face.
Not long after, Gu Tong and Tianyu sent him messages one after the other.
Gu Tong: “Well… I don’t know what to say. I can only say you’re really unlucky.”
Tianyu: “Dude, good job. Hahaha, the Skyfire Base will be destroyed. That’s really cool.”
Li Xiaonian ignored the excited Tianyu and sent a message to Gu Tong, “Sorry, I didn’t expect that to happen. Do you have time now? Can you take me out of the Skyfire Base?”
Gu Tong’s reply came quickly. “Hasn’t the Skyfire Base been blocked? Can you still leave?”
Li Xiaonian: “Yep, I got a pass from the NPCs, so I can leave. I need to go to the Blood Demon City to see if I can find a way to kill the Lord of Hell. If I succeed, I’ll return immediately.”
Gu Tong: “OK, enter the sewer of the base, and I’ll take you to leave from there. If we leave through the gate of the base, I am afraid you’ll be drowned by other players’ saliva.”
Li Xiaonian covered his face in shame.
Following Gu Tong’s instruction, Li Xiaonian quickly found Gu Tong after entering the dim sewer.
Gu Tong used his stealth ability to take Li Xiaonian out of the base.
Leaving the base, the two went down the river.
Having Gu Tong lead the way, Li Xiaonian was very idle.
Suddenly, he remembered that he promised to introduce Xiaolang to Luo Wen, so he immediately sent a friend request to Xiaolang.
System: “You’ve sent a friend request to Xiaolang.”
At this time, Xiaolang was in an emergency meeting of the Wolf Walk Guild. They needed to select a player to go to the guild’s headquarters in [Weifeng City] to ask for help, and the player would drive Earth Dragon One to go there.
“Vice-President, I think Xiaolang is a good candidate. He is a former member of the Special Forces, as well as a senior member of our guild. I believe he has the ability to successfully complete the mission.”
“I agree. Captain Xiaolang is reliable.”
“I agree too.”
Lang Burang’s face sank as he listened to the uproar. “When Li Xiaonian stole [Earth Dragon One], he said that ‘the information was provided by Xiaolang, my partner.’ I believe that Captain Xiaolang is innocent, but he hasn’t been cleared of suspicion, so he is not suitable for this important mission. Apart from Captain Xiaolang, is there any other suitable candidate?”
Xiaolang’s face turned dark when he heard Lang Burang’s words, but he simply said lightly, “Since I am not suitable for the mission, I’m leaving first.”
Then he turned around and left.
At this moment, he was very aggrieved. He had been working hard for the guild for more than half a year and never made any mistakes, but his efforts were all ruined by Li Xiaonian’s nonsense.
System: “June requests to friend you. Do you agree? Yes/No?”
Seeing the friend request sent by Li Xiaonian, Xiaolang was a little annoyed, but after thinking about it, he still clicked “Yes”.
However, the first message sent by Li Xiaonian had pissed him off.
June: “Old bachelor, how are you.”
Xiaolang: “What is your purpose of friending me? If you just want to laugh at me for being a loser, that’s really naïve of you.”
June: “Hehe, are you angry because I called you ‘Old bachelor’?”
Xiaolang burst into anger. “Yes, I am single, but so what? If there’s nothing else, I will blacklist you.”
The other side.
When Li Xiaonian learned that Xiaolang was still single, he smiled. “Hey, calm down. Although we are enemies, it’s only in the “Star Wind” game. We can still be friends, right? I actually admire you because you used to be an excellent Special Forces soldier and are very capable. My best friend has a cousin. She is a beautiful policewoman and still single. I think you two are well-matched. I’ll give you her cell phone number and you can contact her. Maybe there will be chemistry between you. Even if there isn’t, you can still be friends. After all, you are both of military background.”
Seeing the series of messages from Li Xiaonian,
Xiaolang was very angry. “Li Xiaonian, does teasing me make you happy?”
They were in a hostile state, and he was actually trying to set him up with a girl? That was ridiculous.
Helpless, Li Xiaonian could only explain, “I’m not joking about this. It’s true. I’ve sent you her number. It should be easy for you to investigate a person via her phone number, right?”
“She is my buddy’s cousin. She’s really a good girl. Anyway, give her a chance, and give yourself a chance.”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“Of course, if you don’t even want to contact her, then I can only do some dirty tricks to get you out of the Wolf Walk Guild. You know I have that ability. Haha, I guess you still haven’t got over the Earth Dragon One thing, right?”
“Be good. When you get offline, contact my buddy’s cousin. If you two are together, remember to give me a big red envelope. Besides, don’t blacklist me. If you do, I can’t help but screw you.”
Xiaolang’s face turned blue and purple as he read Li Xiaonian’s messages.
This jerk was threatening him! If that girl was really a beautiful policewoman, there must be a lot of people pursuing her. Why would she need Li Xiaonian to set her up with him? What he said must be false. That girl must be ugly.
