Male Wife - Chapter 31
“The Shop has been running normally recently”, Xie Tingyue’ said sparingly, “What’s your plan?”
Liu Yuanshan’s face is a little red, and apologetically said: “Didn’t dare to deceive the young master, xiao ren* is worrying about this recently, the weather is good this year. The harvest of silkworm, hemp and cotton this year is also very good… but there are still a lot that was not sold. Batik* is a good material, had a high quality, however many was left unsold because it has not caught up with this year’s fashion trend. Now that the twelfth lunar of the month is approaching, everyone has to buy New Year’s goods and make new clothes. Xiao ren thinks that if the price is slightly lowered by two cents, we can have quickly earn through small profits. We can also empty the inventory and make some money at the same time.”
(TL: 1. *xiao ren term used, referring humbly to oneself with low social status, 2. * batik is type of technique on dyeing fabrics)
The idea is not bad, it’s indeed profitable to cut the fabric price by two cents. Year ago was the peak season, any fabric could be sold, not to mention they have good quality. Shopkeeper Liu is very humble, in fact as long as he is willing to work hard for a month he could definitely earn, but this “small profit but quick return is just simply as “some profits”.
Xie Tingyue lifted his robe and sat on the first seat: “Those fabrics, show some to me”
Liu Yuanshan personally went to the storehouse and put the fabric on the table one by one: “The fabric are all good quality and xiao ren are always reluctant to lower the price. but putting them again for sell after a long time will damage the color, it will be harder to sell them if the color fades. It won’t be good also if we throw them away…”
Xie Tingyue didn’t hear Liu Yuanshan’s words at all. The moment the fabric was placed on the table his eyes suddenly widen and he stood up!
Lan Ying* fabric!
(TL: * indigo color)
The one in the middle of the table mixed with other fabrics seems to have no quality, solid color and just slightly lighter blue, the only thing that is good is the evenly distributed color.
Liu Yuanshan notice the young master’s sight, and somewhat surprise: “This fabric is spun very well, dense but at the same time thin, it’s also easy to make clothes with any style out of it but the color is not suitable for men, older women don’t like it, they think it is too boring, the young people think it is rigid and not bright at all, not as eye catching as red and yellow…”
Xie Tingyue knows it too, but this is Lan Ying fabric!
