The Medical Guru - Chapter 1158
Chapter 1158 In a Month, You Can Go Down the Mountain!
He Gaoming wanted to earn mega bucks.
But his rational mind told him that with the current situation, he and his brothers were not able to produce so much base wine. It would take nearly a whole year to produce the base spirit as required by these orders, not to mention that many were waiting for them to retail the wine.
“Retail sales, as the oldest has suggested, we should talk about it later. Anyway, we are making big bucks now.”
He Gaoming chuckled.
John Doe announced at the wine party that they would consider selling at retail only after they finished delivering all the wine orders received. When He Gaoming thought back on it, he was filled with admiration for him.
Back then, he was focused on taking down orders, but John Doe had already thought ahead.
Of course, what he admired most was not that John Doe could think of this. After all, anyone who saw how those Wulin people were vying for the liquor would come up with this idea. However, even though the impact of enormous profits brought by a large number of bulk orders was evident, John Doe could still think of this, which showed that John Doe was terrifyingly calm and cool-headed.
He remained unmoved in the face of earning more than 10 billion dollars, a considerable sum of money he could easily get. When the others were in a state of panic when they visualized this amount of money, he kept a cool head and analyzed the ins and outs of this matter. In particular, he was prepared and took the necessary precautions against any possible incidents in advance. All of this was not something an ordinary person could do.
“A well-rounded talent! My unparalleled master is worthy of his reputation. I have a lot to learn from him.”
He Gaoming sighed secretly.
There was a deep and isolated mountain somewhere in Huaxia.
“Swish, swish, swish…”
A youth with a tuft of dog-tail grass dangling from his lips skimmed over the forest canopy on tiptoe. He looked very natural and unrestrained even though he traveled at breakneck speed in midair.
Under the canopies at his feet, the branches of every big tree were unusually thick. The trunks of several trees were hollowed out and formed into tree holes.
Among these thick and solid branches of the big trees were tree houses built with similar stout branches.
The strange thing was that the canopies of this forest were very round and smooth as if they had been trimmed.
Seen from a height, this unique area was located in a broad valley.
It looked like a haven of peace and happiness, making people feel particularly refreshed and carefree once they ventured deep into it.
But it was a pity that there seemed to be no one else in this valley apart from the young man.
After flying for quite a distance, he came to the center of the valley and stopped on a flat lawn.
A very strange voice rang out.
He stared out toward the woods.
A figure abruptly walked out of the forest in the distance.
It was an old man who was as thin as a lath. He was a mere skeleton, and his appearance was a little scary.
Although he was lean and skinny, the old man gave off a particularly refreshing feeling. He wore a white robe, which Jianghu fortune-tellers were often seen in, and it gave him an aura of mystic, much like that of immortals.
The elder stretched out his right hand with a jar of wine on it.
He moved forward gently.
After each step, he would make sure that there was a certain distance between himself and the youth, which was rather enthralling.
The elder, who was some distance away, stopped before the young man after a few steps.
“Old man, why did you ask me to come here?”
The young man looked at the elder and asked.
The elder raised the wine jar in his hand and said, “I got a jar of wine from outside. It’s called Heaven Dew. Do you want to have a try?”
While speaking, the old man sat down on the lawn. Before he even moved his hands, the lid of the wine jar was somehow opened.
When the young man heard the astounding name, his eyes narrowed, and a faint smile appeared on his lips.
Beside him, the elder took out a wine cup from somewhere and began to drink the wine.
“Hey, let me try it.”
The young man stretched out his right hand to grab the wine cup in the elder’s hand.
He tried a few times, but he couldn’t reach it at all.
The young man smiled bitterly.
The old man didn’t care. He drank several cups of wine in a row. After drinking to his heart’s content, he poured half a cup of wine and flung it away into the distance.
The young man, who was sitting on the lawn, whizzed past the elder. However, the wine cup flew forward at a great speed. The young man did his utmost best and barely caught up with it. But even so, he ran for nearly a hundred meters before he finally caught the wine cup.
Amazing! Although the wine cup shot out very fast and flew a hundred meters away, not a drop of the wine was spilled. As soon as the young man took the wine cup, he flicked his wrist and guided the wine cup in a half circle before him. Only then did he release his hold on the wine cup.
Then, he tilted his head back and finished off the liquor.
“Absolutely! Superb liquor.”
The young man returned, handed the wine cup back to the old man, and asked, “When can I go down the mountain? By your standards, I have been a guru for a long time. After I get out of this place, I will beat up all the well-known experts like John Doe and Yun Yangzi!”
The elder darted a glance at him and said disdainfully, “In a month, you can go down the mountain!”
“Great, that’s settled then.”
The youth immediately burst out laughing. After a brief response, he swiftly turned around and zipped past. As he glided away into the distance in a flash, he shouted excitedly, “Wulin, and all those geniuses, wait for me!”
In the wine factory, He Gaoming was discussing the schedule of the wine-making with his brothers.
“Brother Li Boqing and I, each of us will lead a team.”
In the presence of all his brothers, He Gaoming announced his decision, “The oldest said that we couldn’t stop cultivating. So from today on, our two teams will take turns to rest.”
“Well, this is a good idea.”
Li Boqing nodded.
Among all his brothers, he was the only one whose strength was equal to He Gaoming’s. Both of them had reached sixth class, so it was only right that he became a team leader.
“I’ll take nine of them first.”
He Gaoming said, “The Combined Attack Sword Formation that boss taught us is the most important part of our cultivation, so the nine of us can’t be separated. We must be together when we cultivate.”
With this, He Gaoming asked the other eight people who were practicing the Combined Attack Sword Formation with him to step out. Then he went on to select another eight people. His team had 17 people in total.
There were 16 people on Li Boqing’s team.
“Today, let’s start with my team. Brother Boqing, take your brothers out to cultivate. The places surrounding us are all mountainous areas. The conditions for cultivation are quite good,” He Gaoming said.
“Okay, we’ll stay as close as possible. If anything happens, we’ll rush back in time.”
Li Boqing nodded and took his team out to cultivate.
“Brothers, let’s get to work.”
As soon as the second team left, He Gaoming waved his hand and said, “Keep an eye on everything. No mistakes are allowed.”
Everyone nodded in agreement.
He Gaoming had carefully selected the place where the wine factory was located.
The area was between Jiangjing and Longquan, surrounded by mountains and forests that were helpful for cultivation. In addition, since Longquan was on its left and Jiangjing on the right, they could get support instantly should something unexpected happen.
The powerful force of Long Qiyun, the eldest son of the Long family, was located in Longquan. Sure enough, some of his men could help. As for Jiangjing, Wulin people there had been following John Doe. If something untoward happened at the wine factory, Elder Yi and others would come to their aid instantly.
He Gaoming was indeed making sure that the wine factory was well protected!
“Beep! Beep! Beep!”
At the start of his work, He Gaoming’s cell phone rang.
He took it out to have a look.
It was an unexpected call from the Unfettered Faction, one of the eight famous factions.
He Gaoming answered the phone.
“He Gaoming? Brother He?”
A voice came from the other end of the phone.
“Yes, I’m He Gaoming.”
He Gaoming answered.
“I’m in charge of some of the internal affairs of Unfettered Faction. I want to book 50,000 more jars of Heaven Dew for the time being. Please take note of it.”
A voice came from the phone, “Of course, you don’t have to worry about it, as long as you can send us each batch on time. We don’t need to get all the wine at one go.”
He Gaoming immediately nodded and said, “I’ll write it down, but there is one thing I have to make clear to you. In the near future, each batch of wine will be delivered according to the ratio of your first order. These additional orders can’t be included in it, so you have to be patient and wait.”
The person on the other end of the line responded and then hung up after exchanging a few words of courtesy.
He Gaoming quickly found the laptop bought specially for him to do the accounting.
Opening up the previous record of Unfettered Faction, he appended a note saying that they ordered 50,000 more jars!
“Beep! Beep! Beep!”
He had scarcely noted it before his phone rang again.
He picked up the phone.
“I’m Diwu Mingchuan.”
A very dignified voice could be heard and he went straight to the point. “Tell John Doe to add another 100,000 jars of Heaven Dew for my clan!”
After that, he ended the call.
He Gaoming quickly made a note of it.
Not long after, his phone rang again.
He Gaoming answered it: it was another call to increase the number of their order.
This scene was repeated throughout the whole day; he was talking on the phone non-stop. The four clans, eight factions, and sixteen sects had all called He Gaoming to place their orders for Heaven Dew.
He Gaoming felt bitter and wronged when he answered these phone calls. He had to repeat the explanation each time he answered a phone call. Looking at the increasing number of orders, he felt even greater pressure to produce more wine, which nearly floored him.
The series of phone calls finally ended.
Soon after that, He Gaoming’s cell phone rang again.
He reached for his phone to check it.
It was a notification from the bank.
Every force had placed their deposits into his bank account.
Looking at the increasing balance on his bank account, He Gaoming’s smile grew even more bitter.
“We’ve earned enough money.”
“Can all of you please stop adding orders?”
“If it goes on like this, we’ll have to stay here making wine for the rest of our lives!”
At this moment, He Gaoming felt a sense of unparalleled bitterness. Only now did he know what it felt like to be smothered to death by money!
Then, the other brothers also learned of this situation.
All of them smiled wryly.
Originally, they wanted to make money to give themselves and their families an easy and comfortable life. To their surprise, once the wine factory was opened, endless orders came streaming in even without them having to advertise it.
These were just orders within Wulin.
If they opened the retail market, how busy would they be?
