Male Wife - Chapter 8
After saying a few apologies in his heart, Xie Tingyue run faster and entered a shop.
This is the fabric shop of his deceased Aunt Gan.
Before Gan died, she left a will, the dowry was divided into two, one for him and one for Xie Tingxing, but Xie Tingyue always felt that Gan had given him all the maternal love, thus these things should belong to his younger brother so he kept it quietly and did not let anyone know. Because the younger brother is still young, he will take care of the dowry shops and hand them over to Xie Tingxing in the future.
He chose this shop because of the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper’s last name is Liu, Liu Yuanshan.
In his previous life, he was led to death by Lin family, and Gan’s dowry was not kept at all, of course so is this shop. Lin took the shop but was not good at managing and ended up selling the shop. Shopkeeper couldn’t bear what the Lin’s did, and because the deed is already ready the buyer immediately issued silvers. So shopkeeper Liu couldn’t do anything and just started small business by himself.
Liu Yuanshan likes to do business very much, he has devoted himself in research and hard work, and made small achievements. Unfortunately his visions is limited. He can only be rich and safe but can’t be a giant.
Xie Tingyue thinks that this person is useful.
Liu Yuanshan bowed his arms and flattery said,
“Second Young Master”
He receive a letter from Brother Dong yesterday, of course he has to do what the second young master ordered. But when second young master got married, how could there be time to visit him? Hearing the movement outside it became quieter after, and all of these are arrange by second young master. Could it be that all of this. . . .
“There is not much time, I will be straight to the point” Xie Tingyue held his hands behind him and his clear eyes fell straight on Liu Yuanshan. “Today’s accident, I am also a victim, so don’t think too much about it. I came today to discuss a business with you”
Liu Yuanshan’s square face is stern: “Second Young Master is the owner, just order anything directly, how can we talk about business?”
Xie Tingyue smiled: “I’m not talking about ordinary business, I only represent myself and will discuss a deal with treasurer Liu”
“Me?” Liu Yuanshan pointed at his nose, face bewildered
“It is difficult for businessmen to pursue profit and pure loyalty, but businessmen emphasize honesty and contract.” Xie Tingyue pull out a piece of paper full of words from his sleeve “I’ll prove to you that you can dedicate all your loyalty to me. But if I am not capable enough and you’re not convince, you can leave any time but before you leave, I want you to be ten percent loyal from the soul”
“How about it, will you dare?”
For a moment, Lie Yuanshan saw all the sharpness Xie Tingyue has in his eyes, bright and hot.
He has passed the restless age, but it is still thrilling, a little bit of blood boiling deep in his heart seems to be hooked.
“Of course, I’m not forcing you to make a decision right now, you can think about it. Xie Tingyue smiled. “I’m here to ask a question with shopkeeper Liu, how much will it cost?”
(T/N: okay right here I don’t really understand what happened when Xie Tingyue ask for the cost. I don’t know if I’m missing some lines 😅, been trying to read it again and again but. . .)
Liu Yuanshan’s face was lightly harden, and he did not answer immediately.
Today’s second young master is very different from the past. He is a little. . . . . .not sure how to say it. And do you really need to ask the cost?
Xie Tingyue: “For example, this cloth shop and the land deeds that are in my hands, anyway it is mine. I will sell other things that’s not making any money or just shut it down all together. If I don’t do business I have no money, isn’t it the same loss?”
Shopkeeper Liu is very cautious: “This. . . the house it will still be markdown”
Xie Tingyue eyes narrowed and his smile gradually deepened: “If I rent it out, I will get two taels of silver a month; if I give it to a mature female shopkeeper to sell rouge gouache, I can get 8 taels of silver a month; as of for you, shopkeeper Liu, the most in a month… I remember it is Thirty taels? If I have a jewelry I have known and trusted, this income will be more than ten times”
“So I think must cost is not two taels of rent, not 80 taels of rouge gouache, nor the thirty taels that shopkeeper Liu helped me but the three hundred taels, five hundred taels that have doubles dozen of times”
Xie Tingyue looked up and sighed deeply. “If I can’t make this amount, I’m losing money. If I close the shop it won’t just be the old house—-the so-called cost is the maximum value being given up.”
Shopkeeper Liu was hit by a heavy hammer, his heartbeat accelerated and his eyes brightened.
This idea is really unheard of!
