Chapter 346: Rejoice (1)
At this time, Gong Yimo was extremely grateful for knowing how to alter her voice, something that Gong Che didn’t know. She wisely waited downstairs for a while before heading back up. Otherwise, if she went up right now, wouldn’t she be caught in the act?
She didn’t know why she was scared of Gong Che either. She had subconsciously avoided him. She probably started fearing him when she saw his heartbroken gaze when she told him to marry and have a son. His gaze from that time left a deep impression on her and she wasn’t able to forget it.
She calmed herself down slightly before walking upstairs. There were a lot of details that were to be considered for partnership. Li Huai would only be able to hide this from her for a while.
At this time, Xu Yuan detected something wrong too. But he believed that Jin Yun just didn’t choose people wisely. Therefore, he had sent someone like Li Huai over. He heard knocking on the door and Li Huai sighed. He said, “Young master Xu, please wait momentarily. My master is coming right now.”
Xu Yuan widened his eyes. He subconsciously wanted to let his subordinates who were waiting outside to notify the crown prince, but after pondering over it, maybe it wasn’t Gong Yimo. Wouldn’t the crown prince be happy for no reason? Therefore, he suppressed the thought and watched as Xu Yuan opened the door.
As expected, he was disappointed once again. It was a young master with dark skin. His appearance, temperament, and height were different from the Princess’s.
Seeing Xu Yuan, Gong Yimo hurriedly greeted him. In the process, she maintained her male status and her actions were flawless. She watched as the eagerness in his eyes vanished little by little.
“Maybe I ask why young master didn’t come in with Brother Li? Instead, you guys came in one after the other?”
Xu Yuan couldn’t help but ask after Gong Yimo took a seat/
Gong Yimo smiled and said, “There were some sudden matters that I couldn’t walk away from. Sorry!”
When Xu Yuan didn’t get the answer he was looking for, he was a bit disappointed. However, he asked again with some hope.
“Are there any other people along the journey with young master?”
Gong Yimo explained calmly, “Because we were rushing, it’s just Brother Li and I.”
Xu Yuan didn’t bother to debate over this issue. After all, what they were about to discuss wasn’t something splendor. It was better for fewer people to know.
There wasn’t anything left for Li Huai to do, so Gong Yimo asked him to leave. “Brother Li, you should return first. When she finished talking, she stuffed another pieces of silver towards him. She winked at him and said, “When I just arrived, I noticed that the calligraphy and painting from the second stall to the left of the Nong Chang Street isn’t bad. It’s a pity that I don’t have the time to stay, why don’t you help me buy them all and bring it home for me?”
Li Huai flushed red, because she was talking about his own stall, so he quickly lowered his head and accepted the silver and left. When he closed the door and looked back, he saw that the two of them had already started talking. They were clearly dressed in a low-key manner, yet their words, actions, appearance, and manners clearly showed that they extraordinary people… yet despite that, he still managed to have a chance to approach them, it’s a pity that he won’t see them again.
He couldn’t help but reluctantly closed the door slowly.
Next, it was time for Gong Yimo and Xu Yuan to discuss about business. They have to clearly write down how much money each side get from the smuggled goods, how much manpower and material resources each side is willing to invest, and the number of soldiers each side will send. This was because the details of this conversation will be handed over to the other parties’ master, so they can’t be careless in the slightest.
However, because Gong Yimo knew that the crown prince wasn’t as rich as Jin Yun, so she intentionally drew the result in their favor. In the end, the interest was 40% to 60%.
But it doesn’t matter because she has Jin Yun backing her up, she won’t receive a loss.
