Chapter 126: Dog Biting Dog (3)
Now, she just needed to think about how much she should sell the garland flowers and floral hoops in order to maintain first place in the contest.
On the other side, Qiao Ruohuan had already sold a pair of walnuts which was bought by a middle-aged man. He had bought a pair of walnuts originally worth 1,200 for 800. This was a good start for Qiao Ruohuan.
In the comment section, Qiao Ruohuan’s fans were ecstatic. They cheered and exclaimed how amazing their goddess was. They praised her for her great acting skills as well as her amazing business skills.
In the other comment section for Xing Wanshuang’s fans, they were also in high spirits because they saw an expensive ingredient, the caterpillar fungus in her booth.
The fans started a bet, trying to guess who will place first.
Compared to the fans, Qiao Moyu’s fans were all trying to comfort her. They said that a dollar is no big deal, after all, she was being benevolent. No matter how much she earned, it was okay because she just needed to try her best.
In the morning, someone finally came to Xing Wanshuang’s stall.
Xing Wanshuang was a young miss. Although she acted these sorts of roles before, she still didn’t know what to say in markets like this.
Zhou Yunchuan said, “Brother, this is the caterpillar fungus that we picked from the mountain yesterday. It’s freshly picked from the wild!”
The middle-aged man took a look, scrunched his eyebrows, and left without saying anything.
Xing Wanshuang was a bit upset, “Brother Zhou, why is he like this?”
Zhou Yunchuan comforted, “It’s no big deal, this is very normal. Some people just want to take a look and not really want to buy it. Our items are good, so those who need it will not miss it.”
Xing Wanshuang heard this and nodded her head. She was confident in her items too, believing that even if she doesn’t place first, she would at least place second.
Every few seconds, Qiao Ruohuan would sell another two pairs of walnuts.
The two male guests bought some local food and drinks and brought it over to the three groups.
After last night, Qiao Ruohuan and Xing Yichen had probably made up. Qiao Moyu could see the gentleness in Xing Yichen’s eyes as he looked at Qiao Ruohuan.
She couldn’t help but smile. When did the original female lead need to sell her body in order to obtain the male lead’s favorable impression?
At this time, Ye Peicheng brought two bags of food for Qiao Moyu. He delivered the items asking, “How much did you earn?”
Qin Qianqian was upset, “Just a dollar.”
Ye Peicheng had already guessed this result. He comforted her by saying, “No worries. The important thing is participating in it. Plus, I found $520 in front of Moyu’s door. When they announce the result, I’ll ask if anyone lost their money. If not, I will place this money with your group.”
“Wow, teacher Ye is so nice!” Qin Qianqian was surprised.
While Yei Peicheng spoke, Qiao Moyu opened the bag and began to snack on dumplings and shaved ice. The satisfied expression she had on made it seem like the competition wasn’t important to her.
Ye Peicheng sat by her side, “Little Moyu, aren’t you worried about the result?”
Qiao Moyu shook her head. Her mouth was stuffed with food as she mumbled, “Look. There will definitely be a lot of people rushing to buy my garland flowers!”
Ye Peicheng saw a grain of sesame seed by the corner of her lips. He reached over to pick it off and his fingertips carelessly touched her smooth cheeks. He recalled the almost kiss last night and his heart was slightly moved, “Moyu.”
“Hm?” She returned around to look at him.
He suddenly didn’t know what to say, so he just smiled at her and then stood up.
Qiao Moyu felt a bit confused, however, she quickly placed her doubts to the side because a couple of people had arrived in front of Xing Wanshuang’s stall.
Xing Wanshuang’s eyes brightened at the men and women wearing gold and silver walked in front of her stall. It looked like someone with money had finally arrived!
Xing Wanshuang straightened her back and asked, “Is everyone here to buy caterpillar fungus?”
The moment she spoke, these people looked at her face. One of the women shockingly said, “Aren’t you that Xing Wanshuang? The celebrity!”
