When Xia Xibei arrived at the destination at 10 the next morning, Tang Luo was there already.
The two of them exchanged a look and smiled, then proceeded to settle down in a rather remote, quiet shop.
They ordered some food and began discussing the main subject right away.
“I heard that you’re pretty good with computers,” Xia Xibei said after taking a sip of water.
“Who did you hear that from?” Tang Luo asked, his brows raised.
“It doesn’t matter,” Xia Xibei smiled and shook her head. “The thing is, I’d like to collaborate with you.”
“Collaborate? What do you want to collaborate on? Studies?” Tang Luo volleyed back.
“Are you interested in developing a streaming platform?”
Tang Luo raised his gaze abruptly the moment he heard her words, a sharp gleam present in his eyes.
“A streaming platform?”
“Yes,” Xia Xibei nodded, “You must have heard about it before, right? In fact, several companies have made their way into this field, but I believe there’s still a big portion of the cake to be shared.”
Streaming had only just started becoming a potential trend. It had yet to burgeon into a spectacular trend, and there weren’t a lot of social influencers here at the moment.
If they joined the industry at this point of time and took a steady path forward, enormous benefits would follow in their near future.
“Is it that simple?” Tang Luo’s lips twitched, at a loss for words.
They were both just students. She must be kidding to even be planning on getting their hands on such things.
“It isn’t simple, but as long as we collaborate, it’ll definitely work!”
Nonetheless, Xia Xibei had a great deal of confidence.
In her previous life, Tang Luo was the developer of God Luo’s Streaming TV.
However, it only happened about two years from now.
At that time, streaming was thriving vigorously. God Luo’s Streaming TV had several signature streamers, all of whom brought in great profits.
Later, God Luo’s Streaming TV even went on the market. During that time however, Tang Luo was no longer related to God Luo’s Streaming TV.
Right now, Xia Xibei wanted to move it forward.
“How do we collaborate? Do you have money? Or the technology?” Tang Luo stared at Xia Xibei with an expressionless face, as if he was completely indifferent.
“I have a few hundred thousand at hand, and there’s more to come. As for technology, I believe in your capacity. Being so great, I’m sure you have connections with other experts.”
Xia Xibei looked at him with a bright, unwavering smile.
“A few hundred thousand?” Tang Luo laughed and shook his head, “You think this can be done with just a few hundred thousand?”
“Of course! I know it’s not easy and I have no idea how it should be done, but I totally believe you got this!”
Upon meeting Xia Xibei’s gaze, Tang Luo’s heart went a little cold.
He forced a wry smile, seeming sarcastic. “In this world, it’s not like you can achieve something just because you’re hardworking.”
“I know,” Xia Xibei shrugged. “But first we have to work hard! Even if we fail in the end, it’ll be a lesson learnt. We’re still young anyway. Even if we fail, we can get right back up.
“Of course, I believe you can do this!” She beamed a bright smile. “You’re the best!”
Tang Luo’s lips twitched. He couldn’t shrug off the feeling that he was caught up in a strange situation and getting brainwashed by Xia Xibei.
“Aren’t you worried that I might waste all your money?”
“I’m not,” Xia Xibei shook her head. “I trust your capacity. Besides, I won’t be afraid even if you do waste it for real, because I have the confidence to earn more.”
When Xia Xibei finished her vehement pep talk, Tang Luo fell silent. There was a hesitant look on his face.
After considering for a moment longer, he finally spoke again.
“Alright then, I’ll give it a try. But I can’t guarantee that I’ll succeed!”
“No problem at all!” Xia Xibei’s smile was brighter than sunshine. “Then we’ll be business partners from today on! Do offer me your advice!”
“Same to you.”
