Chapter 13: Teenager (1)
After Ye Yu received an ample fee, she dismissed her cheap and stunned disciple in a few words.
Meanwhile, she waited patiently for the rain to stop before carrying 500 silvers out of the teahouse and headed straight for the carpenter’s store in Qingcheng.
When she arrived in the store, the shopkeeper who was greeting the customers was stunned when he saw Ye Yu. He hurriedly snapped out of his trance and walked out from behind the counter, bowing with his hands in front.
“Great master Ye, my bad, my bad. Why are you here?”
The fact that people knew her everywhere made Ye Yu’s expression change for a second. However, she thought about it and guessed that she must’ve been a fortune-teller for this shopkeeper before.
To no avail, she had done so for too many people in the past 2 months that she couldn’t remember him right away.
However, this didn’t stop Ye Yu from improvising and saying, “I didn’t think I could meet the shopkeeper here. Ah, this must be fate. Did my fortune-telling come true?”
“Yes! Great master Ye is really a half-immortal!” The shopkeeper sighed with feelings excitedly and then moved over, lowering his voice. “Thankfully great master Ye had pointed out the willow tree behind my backyard where gold was hidden. Otherwise, where would I have the money to open such a big store? This is all because of the great master Ye that I was able to do so!”
She just finished talking when 500 silvers who was in her arms looked at the shopkeeper questioningly.
This woman would give away the golden meat pie that had fallen from the sky to someone else…that’s a surprise.
After being reminded by the shopkeeper, Ye Yu immediately remembered.
Her smile didn’t change and she said, “What is the shopkeeper saying? You deserve the gold buried in your backyard. Even if I didn’t fortune-tell for you, the gold is still yours.”
“If it wasn’t for great master Ye, who knows how long it would take before I accidentally stumble upon it!”
“Not long, not long. Just two or three decades.”
“Hahaha, nothing. I was just joking…” Ye Yu hurriedly changed the topic.
The shopkeeper nodded his head and said, “Great master Ye is quite interesting. Is there a reason why you’re here today?”
“I want to come here to make an order for something.”
“Make an order for something?” The shopkeeper was confused.
“Basically, I will confirm the style and the carpenters in your store will make it according to the style I asked for. Shopkeeper, you can determine the cost as you wish.”
“Oh, I see. No wonder you’re the great master Ye.” The shopkeeper nodded and went back to the counter to grab a brush and paper. “Great master Ye, please draw it out for me.”
Ye Yu walked over and placed 500 silvers on the counter, grabbing the brush and pencil. She outlined something on the paper and in the end, drew a sharp room with a door.
The shopkeeper took it and observed the drawing, asking in doubt, “Great master Ye wants us to build a house for you?”
Ye Yu nodded and then shook her head, pointing at 500 silvers who was quietly lying on the counter. “It is a house, but it’s not for me. It’s for the puppy.”
The moment she said this, not only did the shopkeeper but also 500 silvers, looked at her in shock.
“Yes, besides this doghouse, make another basin that can be used to take a bath for the dog.”
The shopkeeper was speechless.
“Oh right. Can you guys also make a dog teething rusk for me?”
The shopkeeper was confused.
“It seems like you can’t then.” Ye Yu looked at 500 silvers in regret and hooked the little black puppy’s sharp mouth, thinking seriously. “Then what can you make to replace the dog teething rusk?”
500 silvers whose face got shook left and right was speechless.
She couldn’t think of the answer right away, but she wasn’t anxious either. She turned around to say to the shopkeeper who was still dumbstruck, “Quickly make it and I can give you extra money. After you’re done, please send an athletic man and bring the items to Yun Village, Aunt Wang’s house. I can calculate the money altogether. Is 10 silvers enough?”
