Chapter 60 – A Nostalgic Flavor
Duan Shu Tong didn’t bother to correct Zhai Jun’s appellation for him. “I heard that the company has plans to recruit new people, correct?”
Zhai Jun nodded, “Just tell me what you need.”
“I want to wait for Spring Flower No. 2 to come out first, and then recruit a few more professional researchers.” He went straight to the point. “The original intention of developing Spring Flower No. 1 was to bring the Spring and Autumn Hall back to life. “Director Zhai must also know that the medicinal value of Spring Flower No. 2 is even higher. It’s already gone beyond the skincare category.”
Zhai Jun was doubtful, “What does Young Master Duan mean?”
“We are a pharmaceutical company, and we have the qualifications for pharmaceuticals. We specialize in skin care products, which is a waste of money. After Spring Flower No. 2 comes out, I want to build a more well-equipped laboratory to develop medicine.”

The Spring and Autumn Hall’s laboratory was quite old and not advanced enough.
“This medicine… is what exactly?” Zhai Jun’s brain was having a hard time wrapping around the concept.
Duan Shu Tong smiled, “I haven’t figured out what kind of medicine to make yet.”
Zhai Jun: “…”
Oh, whatever. In any case, the Spring and Autumn Hall would not be what it was today without Young Master Duan’s ingenuity. Wasn’t it just building a laboratory? It wasn’t a big deal. Besides, even if all of the Spring and Autumn Hall’s money were to disappear, didn’t they still have the Duan family to support them?
“Everyone in our company, from top to bottom, will give our full support to Young Master Duan’s plan!” Zhai Jun decided to give up on thinking about the laboratory at the moment. Then he said with a smile, “But there is one thing, we would need Young Master Duan to do us the honor of attending.”
“Our Spring Flower No. 1 has achieved such a great victory [in the market], and the company is very excited. In order to encourage everyone, I am thinking of hosting a celebration banquet, to have everyone sit together for a meal and strength our cohesion. What do you think?”
“Tell me when.”
“This Friday night.” Zhai Jun was worried that Duan Shu Tong would disdain to attend this kind of gathering, so he shyly lobbied, “Young Master Duan is the MVP this time. Everyone hopes you can attend. So what do you say…”
Duan Shu Tong had no reason to refuse, so he simply said, “I will go.”
“And also Designer Pei.” Zhai Jun got the inch, so now he was going for the mile.
Duan Shu Tong shook his head, “She is pregnant. It will be inconvenient for her [to attend].”
“It’s convenient. It’s convenient.” Zhai Jun tried his best to control his expression, to not let his gossipy spirit shine through. “We won’t have her drink any liquor. She also contributed a lot. It’s not right for everyone to go and only leave her out, right?”
Duan Shu Tong thought about it and felt that Zhai Jun was right, so he agreed.
After leaving the office, he was about to ask Pei Ruo Wei on WeChat about attending the celebration banquet when he saw an unread message sent by Pei Ruo Wei. It read: Li Xiao said that he would not come find me again in the future. Can I move out?
Duan Shu Tong: Are you not comfortable living there?
Pei Ruo Wei: I’m really not used to living in such a big house by myself. [facepalm emoji]
Duan Shu Tong: Do you believe his words?
Pei Ruo Wei: I only half believe it. I’ll treat it as giving him one last chance.
Duan Shu Tong: Okay, I will tell my friend.
He understood the loneliness of living alone in a big house, and it just so happened that he wanted to move out of Xi Duan’s house.

After a pause, he sent another message: On Friday night, the company will hold a celebration banquet. You don’t need to drink. Do you want to come?
Pei Ruo Wei hasn’t attended any social activities for a long time, so after a little consideration, she agreed.
The two communicated some more and decided to move on the weekend. Then Duan Shu Tong turned off his mobile phone and went to He Run.
In the future, he would specialize in pharmaceuticals, and the Spring and Autumn Hall’s skincare products would be led by He Run.
He Run, who heard Duan Shu Tong’s plans, was obviously a little surprised, but he accepted his good intentions.
Duan Shu Tong patted his shoulder and said with a smile, “No matter what happens in the future, we can communicate and talk things over.”
Director He smiled and nodded. He has regained his ambitions, so naturally there was no need to refuse.
