Chapter 172: You're Just Leading Me On
After everything had been settled then, Bai Xiaochun held Chu Tian's arm and bounce out of the 4S store, and it was already half past twelve in the afternoon.
The car itself was forty eight million, plus the insurance and various taxes, as well as some discounts from the 4S store. In total, it came to fifty three million .
In addition, because of the unpleasant car-buying experience, Manager Zhang also especially gave 10 free maintenance services and extended the warranty for an additional two years for the entire car.
However, even though Chu Tian had already paid the full amount and purchased the car under Li Sisi's name, the car couldn't be delivered today.
Because for a car like this, it needed to be thoroughly inspected before leaving the 4S dealership to ensure there were no issues, even minor ones.
And this inspection was very complicated and took at least seven to eight hours to complete one by one. Therefore, Chu Tian could only pick up the car tomorrow.
"Hehe, honey, you're quite handsome."
Chu Tian looked at Bai Xiaochun, who was grinning, and said with a smile, "What do you mean? Isn't your husband always handsome?"
"I didn't mean it like that," said Bai Xiaochun. "I mean, you're really kind of… just, yeah, it's justice. Don't get me wrong, you're a bit of a playboy, but deep down, you're actually a very reliable and good man."
"Is this… are you praising me, honey?" Chu Tian asked.
"Yeah, I know. It's really not fair what Liu Jia did," Chu Tian agreed. "But it's not just me. It's also thanks to Xu Min's quick thinking that we were able to get the customer back. And as for Liu Jia, I'm sure she'll get what's coming to her eventually."
"I see," Chu Tian mused, his voice tinged with a hint of wistfulness. "Ah, my love, this is the bitter truth of the world we inhabit. You haven't worked outside before, so you don't know that making money is too difficult. Where there are humans, there will be power struggles the pursuit of profit is often the root of all conflict. Even the most amiable of colleagues can turn on each other in an instant, their camaraderie evaporating when the promise of financial gain is dangled before them like a tantalizing carrot."
"We have only seen a small fraction of what happens in this world today. This kind of situation is happening every moment in this world."
"So you're saying…" Bai Xiaochun thought for a moment and said, "Will I be bullied at work in the future?"
"What are you thinking?" Chu Tian smiled and pinched Xiaochun's face, saying, "My baby is a boss. How could she be working?"
Looking up at Chu Tian, Xiaochun smiled and said, "Honey, I'm really happy."
"Why?" Chu Tian asked, "We just went out to buy a car, is that worth such big emotions?"
"Well," Bai Xiaochun said, "I always knew that after I graduated, I would become a nurse, work from nine to five every day, have to work overtime and night shifts when needed, and only earn a few thousand a month. So… Hey, husband, the baby is really, really lucky."
Seeing the sweet and happy expression on Bai Xiaochun's face, Chu Tian laughed and said, "Alright, if you're happy, then s long as my baby is happy, then I've done my job as a husband. Let's go. We'll go to the park today."
"Sisi sister? Sisi sister, wake up?"
The next morning at 10:30 AM, someone was calling her name, and Li Sisi lazily opened her eyes.
Seeing Chu Tian standing by her bed with a smirk on his face, Li Sisi smiled and playfully hit him, saying, "What are you doing? To accompany your baby, I'm sleeping."
"Xiao Bai went to the milk tea shop to play with Sister Nian," Chu Tian said with a smile, "Sisi sister, why don't you come out with me?"
Li Sisi first stretched and then became more alert. She asked, "Where do you want to go for a stroll?"
"I want to look at cars," Chu Tian said.
"Look at cars?" Li Sisi scoffed, "What's the point of looking at cars when you don't even have a driver's license? Wait until you get your license."
"Oh, come on, let's just go and have a look," Chu Tian said, "We have nothing to do anyway. Hurry up, or I'll get in your bed. It's just the two of us at home. You know the consequences."
Li Sisi chuckled and said, "You're such a rascal. Alright, alright, I'll come with you. I really can't do anything with you."
"Okay, but hurry up. I'll give you half an hour."
After speaking, Chu Tian turned and went back to his bedroom.
Less than half an hour, or about twenty five minutes, later, Chu Tian and Li Sisi left the house.
"Hey Chu Tian, are you so full of energy with nowhere to vent? Why are you bothering me?"
One thirty in the afternoon!
After they left a Mercedes-Benz 4S dealership, Li Sisi pouted and kicked Chu Tian directly.
In just over an hour, Li Sisi and Chu Tian went to Audi, BMW, Cadillac, and even a Mercedes store together.
At the five stores, all that happened after entering Chu Tian was a period of aimless wandering, not even asking about a single car.
He wasn't really looking at cars. He was just wandering around!
Chu Tian chuckled and said," Sis, are you tired?"
"Of course," Li Sisi rolled her eyes and said, "You're like a rabbit. I can't even catch up with you. I've figured it out. You're not here to look at cars. You're here to accompany me. Let's go back home by taxi. We're done."
"Don't, sister." Chu Tian smiled and grabbed Li Sisi's hand. "There is a Mustang store in front. Let's go for a stroll."
What? A Mustang store?
Li Sisi was stunned, then burst out laughing and said, "A wild horse store? Are you stupid? That's the Ferrari logo. This is a Ferrari store, not a Mustang store!"
"A Ferrari store? Whatever," Chu Tian smiled and said, "Who cares what kind of store it is? It's so close. Let's just check it out."
"Ah, you're not even looking. You're just wandering around," Li Sisi complained, "You don't need to pretend. I already know. You're just here to accompany me."
"Then let's accompany each other to the last store, okay?" Chu Tian grinned.
Seeing Chu Tian's smug smile, Li Sisi could only laugh helplessly and say, "Okay, the last store, but we're definitely not going to any more stores."
Chu Tian smiled and said, "Just one last store."
As they spoke, Chu Tian led Li Sisi straight into the Ferrari store.
At the entrance of the 4S store, as soon as Chu Tian and Li Sisi walked in, Xu Min greeted them with a smile.
Just like she didn't recognize Chu Tian, Xu Min smiled and asked, "Are you two interested in buying a car?"
"Just looking," Chu Tian said, "Miss, how much are your cars usually priced at?"
"Well, our Ferrari brand is positioned in the high-end market," Xu Min smiled as she walked next to Chu Tian, saying, "The usual cars are around three to four million. What price range are you two interested in?"
"No specific price range," Li Sisi said, "Just looking for now. Nothing's decided."
"Okay," Xu Min smiled and said, "Then let me accompany you two to look around. This one here is the Ferrari 812, priced between 4.8 million to 5.3 million. This car…"
