Chapter 7.7 – Retiring the Head
The technological development of this world was far less than that of the interstellar era, but it had its own uniqueness. Zhou Yun Sheng would never underestimate any kind of technology, instead he would constantly learn from it. He played with a pair of “expanding reality glasses” with interest. He put it on, took it off, put it on, took it off, he was quite fascinated with it and didn’t want to put it down.
“Do you like it?” Xue Zi Xuan asked with a smile.
“I like it, it’s very interesting.” Zhou Yun Sheng nodded, and placed the glasses on the bridge of the young man’s nose, so that he could experience it too.
Xue Zi Xuan immediately took out his black card and handed it to the sales assistant.
“You want to buy it for me?” Zhou Yun Sheng’s eyes widened into circles.
“You like it, buy it.” Xue Zi Xuan waved his hand indifferently.
So readily? Zhou Yun Sheng pointed to the fiery red supercar in the middle of the exhibition hall and asked, “I like this, are you also going to buy it for me?” In fact, he was not interested in luxury goods, but if it was a high-tech luxury, then that was another matter.

This supercar was a concept car that had not yet been put into mass production. It was an exploration of fully autonomous driving technology in this era. It included all of the most advanced equipment, and the appearance and built-in tech were also top-level. The price fluctuated between seven and eight million. It was not the most expensive, but it was definitely not cheap.
Of all the new products in the entire exhibition hall, Zhou Yun Sheng’s favorite was undoubtedly this car. He had a problem, and that was whenever he saw something that he liked, he would try every possible way to obtain it, thus, he thickened his skin and sounded out the young man.
But ultimately, he was just joking. No matter how much Xue Zi Xuan was acting, he still wouldn’t put in this amount of money. It cost a million to perform a heart-transplant surgery. If he wanted to fool the youth, he only needed to give a little grace here and a little favor there. There was no need to invest seven or eight times the money of the surgery.
If he really did this, then Zhou Yun Sheng would be willing to believe his emotional lines. Things like feelings were too vague for him, but if converted into money, naturally it would be easier to directly observe.

Xue Zi Xuan smiled. The youth dared to ask him for such an expensive gift, which meant that he has accepted Xue Zi Xuan. Right now, he was in a happy mood, as he had never been before. He saw that several buyers were communicating with the sales assistant, and he immediately walked over to the young man.
They were still discussing the configuration of the car and the price. At this point, Xue Zi Xuan passed over his black card. “If I pay the full price, can I drive this car away right now?”
The sales assistant was startled. Who was this? Buying a car like he was buying cabbage.
Zhou Yun Sheng was also surprised. He quickly held the young man’s arm and said with a flushed face, “Are you really buying it? But I don’t have a driver’s license. It’s useless even if you buy it.” Compared to driving the car, he would enjoy the process of modifying this car more. He liked to polish semi-finished products into perfect works of art, little by little. Of course, he didn’t actually expect Xue Zi Xuan to agree, so he didn’t dare to desire it.
“No problem. You don’t know how to drive, I’ll teach you.” Xue Zi Xuan calmly touched the teenager’s hair, and again asked the sales assistant to swipe his card.
There were only a few people who could afford such a luxury car. Everyone was in the same social class, so they were all somewhat familiar with each other. One of the buyers recognized Xue Zi Xuan and greeted him with a smile. There was no need for the rest to compete with Young Master Xue. The car was indeed good, but it wasn’t like there weren’t better cars, so there was no need to compete until they were red in the face. Hence, they all split up and left.
The sales assistant got a lot of money, and naturally, things were done properly. Within half an hour, Xue Zi Xuan and Zhou Yun Sheng sat in the luxury car and drove home.
Everything today completely subverted Zhou Yun Sheng’s imagination. He looked forward with a confused expression on his face. Just bought it like this? Bringing it straight home? 8.56 million. This was 8.56 million, ah! It was enough to buy a few hearts. His fingertips twitched as he calculated.
If he could, he really wanted to grab the collar of the young man and ask loudly: What are you trying to do? Do you know that the better you treat me, the more scared I am? Not afraid of death, but afraid of being unable to guard my heart (from love).
This kind of pampering and indulgence, gentleness and thoughtfulness, as well as that wide and thick chest, those firm arms, he really wanted, really, really wanted them!
Xue Zi Xuan noticed that the teenager’s mood was low. He reached out and squeezed his fleshy cheek, and asked with a smile, “What is it? You really want to drive it?”
Zhou Yun Sheng quickly raised his spirits and nodded, “En, I really want to drive, but I’m afraid of crashing the car. It’s too expensive.”
“No problem. If you break it, we can buy another one. But the premise is that you must not be harmed.” Speaking up to here, Xue Zi Xuan added seriously, “In the future, when you get your driver’s license, you still can’t drive around carelessly. No matter where you go, it’s best to have me accompany you. If I’m not free, you must call and report in every four hours.”

“No, every three hours. No, every two hours. You must report your safety every two hours. Do you remember the movie we watched in the 3D showroom just now, Hurricane Rescue? Don’t think that it’s just the screenwriter exaggerating. The outside world is even darker than the movie. You have to be aware of safety when you go out…”
Zhou Yun Sheng saw the aloof beauty become a chatterbox in less than one second. His helplessness and confusion gradually dissipated, becoming subtly touched, he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Maybe, in this reincarnation, he could have a little bit of expectation?
