Chapter 29 – Investment Acquired
Early the next morning, when Manager You woke up, his wife was already at work.
Sometimes, he really wanted to run over to his wife’s company and interrogate his wife’s superiors. Why were they making their subordinates work so much everyday?!
What was good was that the present he brought back for his wife had already been opened, and on the dressing table was a pale cherry-colored bottle, looking clear, elegant, and most attractive.
The Spring and Autumn Hall’s new product this time had a very nice appearance, showing the diligence and attentiveness of the packaging designer. Now if only the product itself received the same amount of diligence and attentiveness. Alas.
It has been nearly a week since his wife’s birthday. Because his wife often worked overtime, the two of them haven’t gotten to spend much time together lately. Manager You felt like he hasn’t seen his wife’s face in a long time.

On a Friday night, Manager You was reclining on the sofa in the living room and watching TV. He suddenly heard the sound of the front door unlocking, and he immediately turned his head to look towards the direction of the door.
The door opened, and the sound of high-heeled shoes clicked against the floor. It was a familiar and exciting sound [for Manager You].
He got off the couch at once and ran over. He took his wife’s bag for her and said with great joy: “You’re back early today… my dear, did you put on makeup today?”
The change in topic was too abrupt and obvious.
Xu Xiao Qin arched a thin and slender eyebrow. She closed the front door, and then asked: “Why do you say that?”
Manager You fixed his eyes on her, “Your skin seems to be better, so I thought you had put on makeup.”
Xu Xiao Qin smiled immediately, reached out a hand to squeeze his face, and finally couldn’t help but praise: “It’s all thanks to you. My husband has such a discerning eye! Where did you buy that skin care product? My colleagues and I couldn’t find it on the market at all.”
“Huh?” Manager You sat back on the sofa with Xu Xiao Qin. “What skin care product?”
Xu Xiao Qin rebuked him: “Didn’t you give it to me as a birthday gift? It’s the one in a beautiful bottle. You don’t even know what it is and you bought it for me? Stop playing dumb. Hurry up and tell me!”
Manager You jolted. He stared at Xu Xiao Qin’s face. He hadn’t seen her for a week and the fine lines around her eyes have become lighter, her pigment spots faded, and her skin tightened up a lot. She looked like she got several years younger!
He didn’t understand the first thing about skin care products, but even he was aware that it was a rarity for a product to work so fast.
“Did your skin really improve after you used that bottle of skin care product?” Manager You asked, unresigned.
Xu Xiao Qin nodded, “Yeah. The cream I was using before just so happened to have run out, and I didn’t have time to buy a new one. Fortunately, you gave this to me. Husband, you are so smart! Oh, you still haven’t said where you bought it! My female colleagues all want to buy it. They keep asking me about it.”
Faced with his wife’s expectant gaze, Manager You said with a tangled tongue: “This, this is a new product from The Spring and Autumn Hall, and it, it has not been launched yet.”
“Then how did you buy it?”
Manager You cautiously said: “Ah, you know, I’m familiar with their Head Director Zhai. He works in this field. I saw that you finished using your face cream, so I wanted to give you a new one. Then Head Director Zhai recommended this new product to me. Actually, I don’t really know much…”

Xu Xiao Qin was surprised. “The Spring and Autumn Hall? That half-dead brand? Didn’t you ridicule them before? You said that they clearly can’t make money, but they’re still hanging on by their fingertips.”
Manager You: …
Xu Xiao Qin spoke again: “I think their line of products are very easy to use, and it’s not as bad as you said.”
Manager You: …
That was before! If he hadn’t seen the changes on his wife’s face with his own eyes, he would never believe that The Spring and Autumn Hall’s products could have such an effect.
Suddenly the memory of the young man’s confident look appeared in his mind, and Manager You was shook. Looks like The Spring and Autumn Hall was going to live now!
For women, such a good product was so attractive that it was unimaginable. Right now, The Spring and Autumn Hall was stuck in a quagmire, but as long as they seized this opportunity, then it would definitely skyrocket!
Thinking up to here, Manager You immediately got up, went to the balcony, and gave Zhai Jun a phone call.
This was a company with potential. So wasn’t it worth investing in?
