369 I Want To Sell Sweet Pastries. The Official Uncles Won’t Like Them
Gu Nuo’er hugged the flowers with her small hands and ran away quickly.
Along the way, her playful laughter could be heard. “Aiya, I just wanted to make you happy! Look, Elder Brother Siming’s expression has become even more lively!”
Ye Siming followed with a dark expression.
This little thing… was out of control.
Ye Siming passed by the two dogs that kept barking and swept his cold gaze over.
“If you keep being so noisy, I’ll eat you up.”
The two yellow dogs seemed to have been frightened by something. They immediately let out whimpers and ran back to the shop.
Duan Hanping was already done asking around.
He ran up to Gu Nuo’er and said, “There’s a jade shop over there. It’s an old and reputable shop, but the owner has decided to return to his hometown at the end of the year, so he wants to sell the shop. Princess, do you want to go take a look?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded obediently. “I’ll take a look.”
The three of them walked into the jade shop.
The shopkeeper was a round-faced businessman with a thin mustache.
He smiled apologetically and said, “Young Master and Young Miss, it’s right for you to choose this shop of mine. Although our place is in a remote location, this place is very close to the official road. There will always be high-ranking officials and nobles passing by here. Ever since this shop opened, we haven’t suffered a loss.”
In the shop, Gu Nuo’er fluttered her big eyes and looked back and forth.
Well, of course they wouldn’t make a loss. Most of the items were fake.
Real jade stones would emit a faint halo around it while those fakes were lifeless.
Gu Nuo’er said softly, “This shop isn’t suitable for me. I want to sell sweet pastries. The official uncles won’t like them.”
When the shopkeeper heard this, he felt that Gu Nuo’er was really a child.
It was no wonder she was indulging in fantasy. Wouldn’t she suffer a huge loss if she were to open a shop just to sell sweet pastries?
Nowadays, everyone goes to temporary stalls. There were also pastry shops, but they were all known names. Who would especially come to such a remote place to buy her things?
The shopkeeper chuckled. “Miss, this is what you don’t understand. In this area, if you sell sweet pastries, you’ll definitely have to suffer losses!”
Ye Siming said coldly, “You don’t have to worry about that.”
Then, when he spoke to Gu Nuo’er, his tone softened a little. “Shall we go somewhere else to take a look?”
Gu Nuo’er looked at the shop opposite.
It was a craft shop that sold lanterns. The shop was very small and there was also an old man sitting at the door. Under the shade of the tree, he was using a brush to paint meticulously on the lantern.
The child pointed. “Uncle Duan, did you ask if this old man’s shop is for sale?”
Duan Hanping took a look and immediately said, “I asked. He’s selling it, but the price he is asking for is extremely high. Moreover, there’s a pair of acacia trees planted at the entrance of his shop. They’re too big and cover half of the shop.
“Even if some customers come, they won’t know what the shop is selling inside. Therefore, this shop has the worst profits on this street.”
The shopkeeper of the jade shop also snorted and said, “The old man opposite is very stubborn and strange. He doesn’t have a wife or daughter and only guards that lousy shop all day long.
“If Young Miss buys his shop, you’ll really lose all your money. We all pay attention to fengshui when we open for business. With him planting trees in front of his door, it’ll block the popularity!”
However, Gu Nuo’er didn’t agree.
She pursed her pink lips. “Uncle Duan, how much did that old man ask for?”
“500 taels. The other shops only asked for 100 taels.”
If it was so much more expensive, it was indeed an astronomical price.
However, after Gu Nuo’er heard this, she raised her small feet and walked towards the lantern shop.
