Chapter 10 – Breakfast Delivery
Xi Duan did not go with them to the supermarket. He was too busy.
Fortunately, there was another car in the villa’s garage. Xi Duan had the driver, Xiao Liu, drive Duan Shu Tong to the supermarket to go shopping, while he and Cen Ning took another car.
After coming back, it was soon time to eat. Duan Shu Tong invited Xiao Liu to eat, but Xiao Liu was called out again.
Cooking was not easy.
Shopping was a very physical activity, and Duan Shu Tong was a little tired. Plus, he was the only one eating, so he just made a dozen quick-frozen dumplings.
Duan Shu Tong sighed lightly when he thought about how there were no products developed by the Spring and Autumn Hall on the supermarket shelves.

Calling it a pool of stagnant water was overestimating the Spring and Autumn Hall. It was not even a splash of water.
Let’s not talk about facial skin care products, but couldn’t you even produce a simple hand cream?
After eating, he went out on a walk to help digest his meal. Along the way, he went to the barbershop and shaved an inch off his hair, and then he went to the shopping mall and bought a few casual wear outfits.
When he returned back to the villa, he spent some time bent over the desk drafting up a development plan for the future of the Spring and Autumn Hall. The more he wrote, the more he sighed.
Forget it. You couldn’t get fat from eating one bite. You had to take it step by step.
While Duan Shu Tong was thinking about how to develop things in the future, over at the Spring and Autumn Hall, the grassroots unit’s online forum was already abuzz with chatter.
[Have you heard?! Some big character is coming over from Yan City!]
[What big person? Are they coming for an inspection? Should we clean up tomorrow?]
[What inspection! They’re coming to train at the grassroots level. I heard that they’re going to the R&D Department. Wouldn’t that mean they’re taking over Director He’s position? @R&D Department – Xiao Wang: How is your director feeling today?]
[Doesn’t he always have the same coffin face? Is it possible to tell how he feels? But it seems like there is indeed someone coming. As for which job position, it is unclear.]
[Why are you so informed? I don’t know anything.]
[I have classmates working for the Duan family in Yan City.]
[I have relatives there, and their chat group is crazy, like a big holiday.]
[What do you mean? Is this some unlikeable big character?]
[Oh my god, just who in the world is it? Why do I feel a cold shiver down my back? We are just a small temple here. We can’t fit this big Buddha.]
[I received the exact news. This big man is Young Master Duan. [Lights incense.] [Lights incense.] [Lights incense.]]
[Miss Human Resources Big Sister, is this Young Master Duan that Young Master Duan?]
[Emmmmm. Is he really coming here to work? This time an arrogant idler is coming. I pity everyone in the R&D Department.]
Early the next morning, as the horizon became white, Duan Shu Tong ran a few laps around the villa area.
There were very few people here and there were trees planted on both sides of the road. It was quite suitable for jogging. He also bought some snacks for along the way.
After taking a shower, the congee was already done cooking, and it was only half past six. He thought about it and then sent a message to Cen Ning.
Cen Ning and Xiao Liu lived with Xi Duan. They had heavy work tasks today, and they had to be on site at seven o’ clock, but yesterday they did not come back until the wee hours of night. They barely got a few hours of sleep. They were sleepy as heck when they got up.

As for breakfast? There was no such thing! No time!
Just as they were about to go out, Cen Ning received a WeChat message from Duan Shu Tong.
Young Master Duan: Are you awake yet? Did you have breakfast? I made extra congee, and also bought extra dim sum.
Cen Ning showed Xi Duan the meassage.
Xi Duan: “Let’s leave.” He didn’t have time for breakfast.
Cen Ning could only reply: Thank you for your kindness, Young Master Duan, but we have to leave now.
Young Master Duan: When you guys go out, pass by my front door. Just stop for a while.
Cen Ning asked Xi Duan again.
Xi Duan nodded. Stopping for a little bit would not hinder them.
When the car drove up to the Duan villa, Cen Ning caught sight of a young man by the door right away. He wore an ordinary white t-shirt and jeans, and he stood at the front of the courtyard, looking towards them.
Was this Young Master Duan?! Where was the bleached hair?! Where were the skulls?!
