Chapter 449 - 449 Mother, I Have a Special Idea!
449 Mother, I Have a Special Idea!
Gu Nuo’er’s big black eyes were watery.
She thought for a moment and nodded.
In order not to make her father angry after knowing the truth,
She had decided. She was going to invite her father to be the first customer on the first day of the store’s opening!
The carriage drove out from the palace gate. In order to keep a low profile, Noble Consort Qiao only brought Zhang Sui along as a hidden guard.
Even Wanyin and Wanxuan stayed in the palace.
The mother and daughter, together with a guard, leisurely arrived at Gu Nuo’er’s shop.
Gu Nuo’er jumped out of the carriage first. Noble Consort Qiao then lifted the curtain with her fair fingers and also got out.
She glanced around and first saw two conspicuous trees at the entrance of the shop.
The leaves overlapped and one could barely see the door there.
Noble Consort Qiao chuckled. “Baby Nuo, what are you thinking? These trees are blocking the door, so how would pedestrians notice it?”
Gu Nuo’er placed her hands on her hips, her red cheeks puffed up.
“Mother is wrong. This tree has red silk hung all over it. We are tapping on being interesting. People will definitely be curious and come up to take a look.
“The teacher said that good wine needs no bush. Baby Nuo is confident! Moreover, I don’t expect many customers to come to this small shop.”
Her original intention for opening the pastry shop was to be able to eat her beloved pastries anytime and anywhere!
Gu Nuo’er held Noble Consort Qiao’s hand and walked in. “Mother, come, I’ll introduce you to the people working in the shop!”
When Noble Consort Qiao saw her daughter acting like a little adult, she couldn’t stop smiling.
“Okay, okay, okay.”
Her daughter was outstanding!
Everyone in the shop knew that Gu Nuo’er was bringing an important guest over today.
Therefore, when they heard the sound of the carriage stopping, Old Jiang and the others stood in front of the screen, looking forward to it.
When Noble Consort Qiao walked in, Nanny Hu and Qu Niang were shocked.
The peerless woman in front of them was actually the noble consort!
All of them quickly wanted to kneel.
The noble consort raised her fair hand and smiled. “There aren’t so many rules today. You can just treat me as the first guest to come and try it out.”
Gu Nuo’er said in a soft and cute voice, “Mother, I won’t introduce Nanny Hu and Auntie Qu. You know them. This is Grandpa Jiang. The shop was bought from him.
“Grandpa is amazing. He knows how to make beautiful lanterns. The paintings on the lantern drawn by him are all lifelike!
“And this is Elder Sister Ning. She knows how to read and write. She’s also very good at using the abacus and is very amazing!”
Ning Chudie was a little afraid of the noble consort.
This was because even if a superior sat there without moving, they would still give off an oppressive pressure.
Noble Consort Qiao smiled and sized up Old Jiang and Ning Chudie.
From his appearance, Old Jiang looked like a kind old man.
The other lady was a little shy.
However, she couldn’t find anything wrong with them.
She nodded in satisfaction.
It was fine as long as they weren’t someone with evil intentions who were going to bully her daughter.
Noble Consort Qiao looked around and was a little curious. “There’s just the five of you? Do you want Mother to pick two more lasses for you?”
Gu Nuo’er waved her small hand. “There’s no need, Mother. Our numbers are just nice now. Nanny Hu will make delicious pastries, Auntie Qu will be in charge of running the hall, Elder Sister Ning will do the accounts, and Grandpa Jiang will make lanterns~”
Noble Consort Qiao chuckled. “Since you want to sell pastries, why are you making lanterns?”
Gu Nuo’er seemed to be waiting for the noble consort to ask this.
The child’s interest was piqued for a moment. Excitement appeared in the corners of her eyes and eyebrows. Her voice was delicate as she said happily—
“Mother, I have a special idea!”
