402 I Want Someone to Be the Bookkeeper in My Shop
Ye Siming was speechless.
Gu Nuo’er was surrounded by everyone and was chatting enthusiastically with them.
Her pink lips chattered and didn’t stop much.
The female courtesans were afraid that she would be tired, so they didn’t forget to send a few people to dance for her after chatting with her for a while.
There were also people massaging Gu Nuo’er’s shoulders and pouring water for her. The child narrowed her eyes in satisfaction.
Ye Siming sat alone at the side, crossing his arms and watching coldly.
After talking for a while, Gu Nuo’er became completely familiar with them.
The courtesans couldn’t help but ask, “Little girl, you and Young Master are still young. Why did you come to such a place?”
Gu Nuo’er tilted her head. “Such a place? Is it bad?”
Qingrui smiled implicitly. “This is a men’s money-squandering den. The people outside treat us as unclean women.
“It’s almost impossible for young masters and young ladies with clean backgrounds like you to come here. Those who come are definitely looking for fun.”
Gu Nuo’er smiled sweetly, revealing her white teeth. “My Elder Brother Ming and I are also here to have fun! However, we’re just here to watch the show.
“As for the older sisters saying that they aren’t clean, I feel that everyone has their own way of living. If you don’t steal or snatch, relying on your own abilities to earn money, others can’t interfere.”
Ye Siming was originally drinking tea indifferently at the side. When he heard this, a faint smile appeared on his lips.
Yingmei smiled. “If everyone in the world were as open-minded as you, we wouldn’t have to suffer the criticism of others.”
“However~” The child’s tone changed. “There must be older sisters who had no choice but to become courtesans.
The courtesans nodded.
This was true.
Yingmei had a straightforward personality and said, “A few days ago, five to six girls came to the brothel. They were all young, and the youngest was about 16 or 17 years old. I heard that some of them came because their families had fallen and they were forced due to the hardships they were going through.
“The madame asked them to receive guests. One of them had a strong personality and was unwilling to do so. She was beaten until the corner of her mouth bled.”
Someone quickly pushed Yingmei. “Don’t say such things in front of Young Master and Miss.”
However, Gu Nuo’er’s eyes lit up and she quickly asked, “She’s so pitiful? Can you bring her over for me to take a look? To be honest, I lack a smart helper!”
“Young Miss, what are you looking for a helper to do?”
Gu Nuo’er said softly, “Oh, to go to my shop to be the bookkeeper.”
The courtesans looked at each other and covered their mouths to smile.
This was the first time they had heard of someone coming to the brothel to redeem someone to be a bookkeeper.
Gu Nuo’er counted the benefits with her pinky. “Older sisters, don’t laugh at me. Listen to me! Young misses who were forced to enter brothels due to the hardships in their lives like this…
Usually, they would tend to have their outstanding points. Didn’t you guys ask for the courtesans to have to know how to play the zither, chess, calligraphy, or paint? Furthermore, they came from families that had fallen and would definitely be literate!
“Therefore, this will save me a lot of effort. If I save her from the brothel, she will thank me. She will naturally cherish the hard-won stable days and be a good bookkeeper! It’s more reliable than me finding someone outside, right?”
Qingrui was a little surprised. “I didn’t expect you to be so meticulous at such a young age. However, I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you.
“Our procuress is the most difficult to talk to. She’ll definitely ask for an exorbitant price. If Young Miss and Young Master are out to have fun. Your family might not be willing to fork out so much money to help you redeem a courtesan.”
Gu Nuo’er smiled, her cheeks fair and cute. “It’s alright. Go and call her over. I have a way to get her to agree.”
