Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 616
Chapter 616 – Superman Li is impressed
“You want my father to be at the opening ceremony?” Li Zekailooked as if he had seen an alien. Li Zhekai had never seen his fatherattending any opening ceremony in his life!
“What’s wrong with that? He also owns the shares of this TaiHua Supermarket. Shouldn’t he be present for the opening ceremony?” Feng Yusmiled and asked.
“It’s hard to invite him. My father does not like to attendthese types of events. He had shunned the limelight for several years and leftmost of these matters to my elder brother and his assistant.”
“You still have not asked him, how do you know he is notwilling to go? Don’t forget what country he will be going.”
Li Zekai frowned. What country he will be going? That’sright. He will be going to Beijing, capital of China!
“I will ask him when I get home. But don’t keep your hopeshigh.”
Li Zekai also wanted his father to be present at the openingceremony. This will be his father’s support for him. But his father did noteven appear for the opening of his Pacific Century Group, will he even attendthe opening of Tai Hua Supermarket?
That evening, Li Zekai returned home for dinner. Duringdinner, he tried to speak but stopped on second thoughts.
Superman Li ate slowly, and he could tell that Li Zekaiwanted to say to him something. He finished his dinner and told Li Zekai: “Ifyou have anything to say to me, come to my study room.”
“Dad, Tai Hua Supermarket should be opening at the end ofJuly or early August. Feng Yu wants to invite all the shareholders to theopening ceremony. He asked me to invite you.”
“Didn’t you tell him that I do not like to attend theseevents?” Superman Li looked at his younger son.
“I told him that. But he says you might be interested as thelocation is in Beijing.”
Superman Li’s eyes sparkled. Beijing? This Feng Yu is aninteresting fellow.
“Invite Feng Yu over for dinner tomorrow. Come to say, Istill have not met him yet.” Superman Li suddenly said.
Li Zekai’s eyes opened wide. His father invited Feng Yu overto his house for dinner? It’s been years since his father asked someone over totheir home.
“Ok. I will tell him to come over tomorrow.”
“Your father is inviting me over for dinner? Ok. I will bethere.”
Feng Yu was not surprised by Superman Li’s invitation. Hehad been invited by Fu Rongqi in the past, and Superman Li should be aware ofit. In Feng Yu’s previous life, he heard that Superman Li will watch the newsand read newspapers from all over the world. He should have read China, Japan,and US newspapers. Maybe Superman Li had an estimate of his real wealth.
Who would not be curious about a miraculous young man?Superman Li is also human, and he should be curious about him.
Feng Yu arrived at the Li family’s villa precisely at 6.30pm. He remembered a newspaper article that Superman Li waked up at 6am and gotoff work at 6 pm. The was his habit for years. Since he finishes work at 6 pm,then arriving at 6.30pm should be just right on time.
Feng Yu brought a bottle of wine as usual. Superman Li lovesto play golf and was good at it. But Feng Yu did not know anything about golfand did not even know where to buy golf clubs. Wine is still more convenient.
Li Zekai opened the door for Feng Yu personally and hiselder brother, Li Zeju was also there to welcome him. Superman Li did not walkout and remain seated on the sofa.
Superman Li only stood up when Feng Yu entered the livingroom. “Nephew Feng, come over and have a chat. Dinner will be ready soon.”
Nephew again? Why does Hong Kongers like to address othersas a nephew? But Feng Yu thought about his relationship with Li Zekai. This wayof addressing him was not wrong. Feng Yu and Li Zekai were quite close likebrothers.
“Uncle Li, I have known Brother Kai for quite some time butdid not visit you. I hope you are not angry.”
“Hahaha. It is me who invited you late. Nephew Feng is socapable, and I should have invited you over earlier.” Superman Li was quitefriendly unlike the rumors about him. Of course, it might have something to dowith Feng Yu’s status. Superman Li positioned Feng Yu quite high. He might evenplace Feng Yu as someone his equal.
Everyone said some pleasantries and the chef came out toinform them dinner was ready.
During dinner, Superman Li also chatted with Feng Yu andFeng Yu noticed there were lots of Northeast dishes on the dining table. Thesewere specially cooked for him.
After dinner, Superman Li invited Feng Yu to his study forsome tea. Feng Yu knew that Superman Li wants to talk business with him.
No matter whether it was Hong Kong’s tycoons or Chinatycoons, all of them likes to talk business in a quiet place. Hong Kongers preferredstudy rooms. Many of the books in the study might be for decorations, and mostof the tycoons had never touched them. Also, most tycoons in Hong Kong live inlarge villas and had lots of helpers.
In Feng Yu’s previous life, he heard that Superman Li was acareful person. He does not trust others quickly even if it was his ownhelpers. This was because if what he said was to spread, he might lose someopportunities.
That’s why Superman Li would discuss with his guests abouttrivial matters in the living and dining rooms. But for important issues, hewould talk in his study. Once the door of the study was closed, no one couldhear a thing outside.
Feng Yu looked around the study when he entered. He noticedthat it was a novel on the table. He had heard that Superman Li have a habit ofreading every night. He might have read all the books on the shelves.
“What would you like?” Li Zekai asked.
“Green tea will do.”
The helper brought a cup of green tea into the room andleft, closing the door behind her.
“Nephew Feng, I heard from Zekai that you are inviting me tothe opening ceremony of Tai Hua Supermarket?”
“Yes. I intend to create a hype for the opening and let CCTVreport it in their news. This way, it will increase Tai Hua Supermarketawareness in the shortest time.”
“CCTV will report about the opening in their news is becauseI am present. I am only a minor shareholder, and I should not have anyobligations to attend the opening ceremony, right?” Superman Li jokingly asked.He knew that the opening ceremony would be on the news only if he wereattending.
“Uncle Li should have plans to visit China soon, right?Don’t you want to have a chat with China’s top leaders about the issue of HongKong’s return? Or maybe you would like to see the changes in China and helpyour company’s investments in China to make more money?” Feng Yu asked himback.
Currently, Superman Li’s investments were mainly in HongKong, followed by China. Canada’s investments were only ranked third. If therewere any political changes in China, his businesses would be affected.
“Why should I be a concern with these?”
“Because you had set your sights on China’s developments andbelieve that China will develop rapidly in the next 20 years. Also, your maininvestments should be in China, right?”
Li Zekai knew his father was optimistic about China’sdevelopments. But how did Feng Yu find out about this? Also, what Feng Yu saidwas precisely what his father was thinking. Both felt China’s economy will beone of the fastest growing economies in the world, in the next 20 years!
Superman Li looked hard at Feng Yu and gasped. “You canpredict this. Just this point alone, both my sons cannot be compared to you.”
