Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 234 – Should I agree?
200 million Rubles, enough?
This question had stunned Feng Yu. He had never thought that his relationship with Brother Ke was so good until he was willing to help him get a loan of 200 million Rubles. He also knew that Feng Yu did not have enough assets to get this loan.
Why did Brother Ke still asked him this?
Feng Yu suddenly remembered that before Kirilenko was drunk, Brother Ke had only talked to him about those unimportant things. It was just after Kirilenko was drunk, then he mentioned the loans.
Could it be?
“Brother Ke, is there any conditions for you to help me get the loan of 200 million Rubles?” Feng Yu asked in a serious tone.
He would never believe that Brother Ke would help him without any other conditions unless there’s something wrong with his mind.
Brother Ke smiled. Feng Yu could understand the underlying meaning.
“Feng, although we met through Kirilenko, and we are just business partners. But I felt that we can not only be business partners. We can also be friends, good friends! Our friendship can just be like the friendship between our Soviet Union and China!”
Feng Yu nodded, but in his heart, he was cursing. The Soviet Union and China had never been friends.
Since the past, China had pursued the policy of befriending the far and attacking the near. But because of the United States, China had to unite with the Soviet Union. However, recently China had established diplomatic relations with the United States.
Since the founding of China, the Soviet Union had withdrawn their resources, technological assistance from China and even started a war. This had worsened the relationship between both nations. The Soviet Union had also occupied part of China’s territory for over 100 years. How can there be friendship between both countries?
Seeing Feng Yu nodding, Brother Ke was happy. He continued: “Feng, there is something I am curious about. Kirilenko had told me that our company had only a few million Rubles worth of assets and these few years I had only received a few million. How come you are able to accumulate over 30 million Rubles worth of assets? Is there something that I am not aware?”
The smile on Feng Yu’s face disappeared. Could it be Brother Ke suspect that he had earned more money? Even though this was the case, but most of Feng Yu’s income was from the Machinery Company, humidifiers, and electric fans. These were related with the Soviet Union trade but Feng Yu would never and cannot admit!
“Brother Ke, you have misunderstood. All my assets were not from our trade. I had set up many factories in China, and my products are very popular throughout China. Our hi-tech humidifiers and bladeless fans were sold throughout the world. These products are the primary source of revenue for my company. See, that humidifier in that corner is my company’s second-generation humidifier.”
Brother Ke turned and look at the Wind and Rain humidifier in the corner. He chooses to believe Feng Yu for the time being. Even if Feng Yu was lying to him, he had no way to prove he was lying. Without this trading partner, he would lose a lot of money every year. After all, not every Chinese can become their trading partner.
Kirilenko had also told him about Feng Yu when they met for the first time. Feng Yu was a competent person and had lots of connections. Brother Ke was afraid that he could not find another partner like Feng Yu and he was also scared of the people behind Feng Yu.
Although he knew that the people behind Feng Yu could not affect his standing in the Soviet Union, but if he could avoid all these necessary troubles, why not?
“Feng, then can you tell me how much have you earn since you started working with Kirilenko? We are friends. There should be no problems with you telling me about your earnings.”
Feng Yu realized that this Brother Ke was suspicious of Kirilenko and he felt that Kirilenko was cheating him. But did Brother Ke ever thought about how he had left everything to Kirilenko and had never shown any concerns about the Sino-Soviet trades? He had only helped to sell off some Chinese goods in the beginning and assisted in getting a few Soviet Union industrial machineries.
Feng Yu had discussed with Kirilenko before. Kirilenko will help Feng Yu get more advanced industrial machinery and even aircraft, tanks, etc. If Feng Yu had to choose, he would rather work with Kirilenko.
Feng Yu was calculating in his mind and decided to say a more conservative figure: “Brother Ke, I did not make much. The past 2 to 3 years, I had made about a few million Rubles. Surely you guys make more than me.”
Brother Ke looked at Feng Yu suspiciously. Really only a few million rubles? He felt that Feng Yu should not be earning so few. Feng Yu’s profit should be at least tens of millions of Rubles.
The industrial machinery from the Soviet Union was something that cannot be found in China, and it was worth a lot of money. He had heard that the Chinese were willing to pay more for these industrial machineries as China wanted to develop their industries.
Brother Ke was still thinking that the Soviet Union’s industries were much better than China, but he does not know that many sectors, like light industries and home appliances in China, had caught up with the Soviet Union.
“Feng, I heard that you wanted to buy some heavy industrial machines. Kirilenko is not able to help you, but I am different.” Brother Ke raised his glass while he said this.
Feng Yu paused for a moment. What does he mean by this? Brother Ke wants to ditch Kirilenko and deal with him directly?
But Brother Ke and Kirilenko should not have fallen out yet. Otherwise, Kirilenko would not bring Feng Yu to meet him.
These two people…… interesting.
Feng Yu pretended to not catch his hint: “Brother Ke, isn’t it all the same? We are still doing business together.”
“No, I don’t know how many industrial machinery and technologies Kirilenko had sold you. I have not seen the money earned.”
Feng Yu said with a confused face: “Brother Ke, this should not be possible. Why not we wake Kirilenko up and ask him. Maybe he is still awake.”
Feng Yu pointed at Kirilenko who was lying face down on the table. He tried to wake him up.
Brother Ke looked at Feng Yu. Feng Yu was not lying?
“He had drunk a lot. Let him rest.” Brother Ke stopped Feng Yu from waking Kirilenko up. He continued: “Feng, I can also get you whatever machinery or technologies Kirilenko sells to you. I can even get you those that he can’t get, as long as you can give me a good price. Furthermore, Kirilenko can’t even help you with getting a loan but I can. If you promised me that you will work with me in future, I could help you get the loan. The amount will be more than what you wanted!”
Feng Yu hesitated. Brother Ke’s offer was really attractive. Should he agree?
