Chapter 52: Are you hungry?

Gu Xia drove the car onto the expressway. The snow on the expressway had been swept away by the responsible workers. Gu Xia raised the speed of the car, and drove to Shan*hai according to the navigation route.

After driving at a high speed for nearly three hours, he finally entered Shan*hai.

The location set on Gu Xia’s navigation was Nanjing Road, so he drove all the way to Nanjing Road. Gu Xia asked a passerby and found the Yunfan Building. Yunfan Building was a newly built building on Nanjing Road. It was 43 stories high and the exterior was made of dark blue glass. It looked like a huge blue crystal under the sunlight.

Gu Xia drove in from the parking lot. After parking the car, he took the elevator to the 23rd floor. As soon as he got out of the elevator, he could see the door of the company on the opposite side. The door was made of stainless steel and glass. He could clearly see the front desk inside. A young woman was seated at the front desk. Behind her was the name Modu Lingyun Technology Co. Ltd. written in golden characters.

Gu Xia nodded, the design of the gate and the front desk looked great.

The door was automatic, and when Gu Xia walked over, it opened automatically.

“Hello, who are you looking for?” The beauty at the front desk stood up and asked.

“I’m looking for Xu Fan.” Gu Xia said.

“Mr. Xu? Do you have an appointment?”

“Uh…no.” Gu Xia touched his nose and said.

This scene seemed strangely familiar, wasn’t it a scene from some TV series.

Gu Xia took out his mobile phone and dialed Xu Fan’s number before she could say anything about not being able to enter without an appointment.

“Hey, Brother Xu, I’m at the door. Come out, I can’t get in without an appointment.”

“Okay, I’ll be out right now.”

Seeing that Gu Xia knew her boss, the receptionist told him to wait a moment, and then continued to sit there. She didn’t know if the person really called her boss and dared not let him in.

“Gu Xia!”

Xu Fan walked over and called out, then said to the woman on the front desk, “This is Mr. Gu, the boss and shareholder of Lingyun, understood?”

“Understood, Mr. Xu.”

“Good. Don’t forget it!”

“Hmm!” Gu Xia smiled.

“Let’s go, go in and have a look.” Xu Fan smiled.

Walking inside, Gu Xia saw that there were already about thirty employees inside, all working.


Xu Fan clapped his hands, saw everyone looking over, and said, “Everyone please stop their work for a moment, this is another boss of our Lingyun, who is also a major shareholder of Lingyun. You can just call him President Gu, in the future he will often come to guide the work, and everyone please give him a warm welcome.”

“Clap! Clap! Clap!”

“Hello, President Gu!!!!”

Everyone applauded and shouted.

“President Gu, say a few words!” Xu Fan patted Gu Xia on the shoulder and smiled.

Gu Xia touched his nose and said with a smile, “Hello everyone, Lingyun is in its infancy now. And in the future, everyone must make concerted efforts to make Lingyun stronger. If Lingyun is strong, everyone’s salary will also improve. Everyone here knows about the company’s project, this is a project that will surely make money, so at this stage, I hope everyone can work with me and President Xu to make Lingyun stronger, thank you everyone!”

“Clap! Clap! Clap!”

There was a stream of applause from the employees.

“Mr. Gu is right. Let’s work together and wait until the company becomes bigger and bigger and goes public in the future. All of you here are veterans, and all of you may be leaders by then, so everyone should work hard!”

“Clap! Clap! Clap!”

“Okay, let’s all get back to work!”

After Xu Fan finished speaking, he said to Gu Xia, “Let’s go to the office and talk!”


“Hey~ Did you see how young President Gu is? He must be a rich second generation!”

“So handsome, I want to be his girlfriend.”

“Mr. Gu is mine. Just look, you have no chest or bu*t…”

“He’s mine, so young and rich, I’m going to give him a little monkey…” (G: Have children.)


Gu Xia, who was walking behind Xu Fan, heard the discussion behind him and smiled bitterly.

In Xu Fan’s office, the decoration was very grand. You could overlook the scenery of the magical city (Modu/Sha*ghai) from the floor-to-ceiling windows, and the words “God rewards hard work” written by famous artists on the wall.

There were desks and tea tables and sofas inside. Gu Xia looked at the layout of the office and nodded. The layout was imposing, but not overly luxurious like a nouveau riche.

“Have you bought a car? Did you come by car?”

Xu Fan asked while sitting on the sofa and brewing tea.

“Yes, I just bought it.”

“Haha~ What car did you buy, did you have enough money? If it’s not enough, I’ll give you another million.” Xu Fan laughed.

“It was enough, I bought a Mercedes-Benz E200, and I still have leftovers after buying the car.” Gu Xia smiled.

“The E200 is not bad. After the company makes money, you can replace it with another one. You will lose your share if you drive this car again, haha~” Xu Fan said with a smile.

“By the way, let’s go to the R&D room, and take a look at our takeaway app. It’s almost done. You can check it out. We’re going to try it out in the capital first.” Xu Fan finished talking and walked outside. .

Gu Xia nodded and followed.

They came to the other side of the company, and the words “Outsiders Do Not Enter” were posted on the door.

Walking in, he saw a large room full of computers and various piles of paper.

A dozen people were working attentively in front of the computers.

“I paid a lot of money to find these people. It was because of them that the app could be developed so quickly, and their technology is great.” Xu Fan pointed to these people and said.

A middle-aged man in black clothes walked over and said, “Mr. Xu, why are you here? Who is this?”

“This is the President Gu I was talking about.” Xu Fan pointed at Gu Xia and smiled. After speaking, he pointed at the middle-aged man and said, “Gu Xia, this is Xiong Xiong, the manager of our R&D department.”

“Hello Manager Xiong! You’ve worked hard.” Gu Xia smiled while holding Xiong Xiong’s hand.

“Oh! I can’t believe that Mr. Gu is so young! I have been waiting to meet with Mr. Gu for a long time! These two projects of yours are really very creative! Now that you are here, I just have some doubts and I can ask you for advice.” Xiong Xiong said excitedly.

“Don’t dare to take the credit. Most of the credit goes to the backbone of the company, Manager Xiong! Without you, I don’t know when this app would be launched.” Gu Xia waved his hand modestly.

“Xiong Xiong! I will leave President Gu here. If you have any questions, please ask him in the next two days! He will be going back to study in two days.” Xu Fan laughed.

“Ah, President Gu is still studying! How praiseworthy!” Xiong Xiong said with sincere admiration.

“Don’t praise me, I’ll get embarrassed.” Gu Xia touched his nose and smiled bitterly.


Xu Fan laughed loudly when he heard his words, then patted Gu Xia on the shoulder and said, “I’ll go over to deal with some paperworks first, you can help Xiong Xiong here!”


Gu Xia followed Xiong Xiong to the computer and looked at the background of the takeaway app on the computer.

“It’s Mr. Gu, our app’s name is according to what you said, ‘Are you hungry?’. At present, our framework has almost been built, and we have done it according to what you wrote. You can also check if this sorting is correct. The sorting is divided into comprehensive sorting, highest sales, nearest distance, and lowest starting price…”

Gu Xia listened to Xiong Xiong’s introduction, looked at the screen, and nodded, the framework seemed quite good.

“Yes, we can do this in the early stage, and then we will slowly optimize it later. The next step is to go to the merchants, and the contracted merchants affiliated with us and. add the information and dishes of the contracted merchants as quickly as possible. We can’t make a mistake on this part.” Gu Xia said while looking at the framework on the screen.

“Don’t worry, Mr. Gu, the boys under my command are top-notch.” Xiong Xiong said confidently.

“Alright, that’s good. After the app is on the market, we’ll see what needs to be optimized, and in the future we can add services like supermarket purchasing, vegetable and fruit purchasing, etc.”

Gu Xia couldn’t think of anything that needed to be changed at the moment. After all, he used to watch the food delivery platform on his mobile phone. Looking at the draft like this, Gu Xia didn’t exactly know what more could be changed.
