Chapter 17 – New Product Development
The research continued until seven o’ clock in the evening. Finally, at the moment of success, Duan Shu Tong felt a long-lost sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
This research was only the most basic operation for him, but this was the first record he left in this word and he was very happy.
He wanted to share it with others immediately.
“It succeeded?” A cautious and unbelieving voice sounded from behind him.
Duan Shu Tong instantly vanished the bit of joy on his face. He turned to look at Zhou Ling. His eyebrows carried a faint trace of a smile.
“It succeeded. We succeeded.”
He had completed this project in his previous life. Now, it was just a copying process, so the research and development speed was naturally very fast, and the effectiveness has already been verified.

“I have to sort out the experiment report. You go back first.”
Duan Shu Tong couldn’t bear to have a girl work overtime too late.
Unpredictably, Zhou Ling asked him with a face full of anticipation: “Is there anything I can help with?”
This was the first study she had experienced, and she did not want to leave at all right now.
Duan Shu Tong smiled. “Of course.”
The two were busy until nine o’clock in the evening, and they were still energetic.
“The report will be handed in next Monday, and the bonus will be inevitable by then.” Duan Shu Tong quipped jokingly.
Zhou Ling was dizzy with giddiness, no matter what Duan Shu Tong said she nodded along.
She didn’t care whether or not there would be a bonus. To be able to participate in the research of a new product, she was already very proud and satisfied.
“However, new products still need to be tested.” Duan Shu Tong sighed.
Even if he knew that the new product was very effective, it could not be put into production and sales without professional testing and live-action testing.
Zhou Ling also calmed down.
She thought about it for a while and then firmly said: “Director Duan, I want to participate in the experiment in advance. Is that all right?”

She had freckles on her face. The main effect of this new product was to lighten the spots. If the product was effective, it should be obvious on her face.
Duan Shu Tong looked at her silently.
Zhou Ling tried to persuade him. “Director, can we do it like this? Send the product for testing first, and I will try it out at the same time. If it works, others will definitely find out.”
She was worried about this being Duan Shu Tong’s first researched and developed product. If it failed to meet the expected standards, then other people would end up laughing at him.
After all, there were so many products in the market that were labeled for diminishing spots and blemishes. She believed in Duan Shu Tong’s ability, but the diminishing effect must be based on real people results.
If there was no strong evidence to support his product’s effects, the company might not necessarily invest its financial resources in the early stage. Rather than waste time with talk when that time came, it was better to put the facts directly in front of their faces.
Duan Shu Tong said uncertainly: “You believe in me that much? If the new product not only does not have a diluting effect, but instead made it worse, what would you do?”
Zhou Ling smiled. “My face is already like this anyway. How can it get any worse? Even if there is no effect, there will be no harm.”
Although he had enough belief in his product, Duan Shu Tong had to admire her courage.
After leaving the company, the two parted ways.
Duan Shu Tong rejoiced in his heart and wanted to find someone to share this joy with. He thought about it left and right, but could only come up with Cen Ning.

In Shan Quan County, he only knew three other people: Xi Duan, Cen Ning, and Liu Zhi Fei.
He sent a message to Cen Ning: Tomorrow Saturday, do you have time to eat a meal together with me? My treat.
Cen Ning did not respond to his message until after Duan Shu Tong got home: Sorry, Young Master Duan. I probably won’t have time tomorrow. President Xi is sick and hospitalized.
Duan Shu Tong had just sat down on the sofa and was getting ready to relax when he suddenly saw this message. He was stunned for a moment, and then he fired back a reply: Which hospital?
After reading Cen Ning’s reply, he immediately picked up his house keys and went to the hospital.
