370 In Our Family, I Have the Say!
Gu Nuo’er walked to the old man who was making lanterns.
She stuck out her small butt and sat on the steps beside him.
Then, her two fair hands held her chubby cheeks as she watched him draw on the lantern seriously.
Old Jiang turned his head and saw an obedient and adorable child.
He chuckled and blew at his beard. As he drew the kitten on the lantern with a thin brush, he said, “Girl, the dress you’re wearing is so expensive. The steps are dirty. Be careful not to dirty the dress!”
Gu Nuo’er’s voice was soft and her eyes were clear. “Isn’t Grandpa sitting too? Grandpa isn’t afraid of dirt, so why should I be afraid?!”
Old Jiang looked up at her in surprise and then laughed.
“You have a sweet mouth, but this won’t make me lower the price. If you want to take over my shop, 500 taels. Not a single cent more, not a single cent less.”
After saying that, his gaze swept across Ye Siming and Duan Hanping in front of him.
The reason why he knew that Gu Nuo’er was the buyer…
Was because Duan Hanping had just come to ask for the price.
Gu Nuo’er’s eyes were sparkling like a glistening lake that was filled with stars.
“Oh, I’m not here to bargain. I’m here to pay more. Grandpa, I want to buy all the lanterns in your shop as long as they’re made by you.”
The child counted with her fingers. “Including the shop, I’ll give you a total of 1,000 taels, okay?”
Duan Hanping’s heart skipped a beat when he heard this.
Did the little princess not have any concept of money?
This shop had no profits and its furnishings were old.
It would be a huge loss to even buy it for 100 taels.
Not only did the little princess not bargain, but she also wanted to pay him more money.
Little did she know that she could buy a bunch of those lousy lanterns for ten taels!
Duan Hanping hesitated repeatedly before he couldn’t help but say, “This… This price is too…”
Before he could finish speaking, Ye Siming took out a gold ingot.
“I’ll get someone to send the rest over to you later.” His tone was indifferent as if he didn’t care about this bit of money.
Duan Hanping’s hair stood on end.
Not only were these two nobles generous, but they also gave no room for negotiation!
This was a shop that wasn’t even worth 100 taels, but they were buying it for 1,000 taels. Why did it look like they were casually buying a cabbage?!
Old Jiang was also a little surprised, but he didn’t show it on his face. He only narrowed his eyes and the wrinkles at the corners of his eyes crinkled, revealing his old age.
“Have you thought it through? If you give me 1,000 taels, no matter how much you regret it in the future, I won’t refund the money just because you’re a child. Child, you’d better go back and ask your elders!”
Gu Nuo’er smiled, her eyes curved and she looked cute. “There’s no need to ask. In our family, I have the say!”
The child’s tone changed. “However, I have a request. It’ll depend on whether Grandpa can agree to it.
“After this shop is sold to me, Grandpa still has to help me to work here, making one lantern a day. Each lantern must be drawn as beautifully as the one you’re drawing now!!”
Old Jiang thought for a moment.
He had nothing to do if he were to go home. The reason he watched over this shop that had been passed down to him by his parents was so that he could find something to do.
In reality, if Gu Nuo’er gave him 1,000 taels, he would not have to worry about food and drink in the capital for the rest of his life.
However, Old Jiang only thought about it slightly before agreeing.
Gu Nuo’er smiled sweetly, revealing her white teeth. “It’s best if Grandpa is willing to stay and help. I’ll pay you three taels of silver every month as your salary.”
She raised two fingers.
Ye Siming coughed lightly.
Only then did she realize her mistake and quickly extended another fair and chubby little finger.
