Chapter 360: Open one’s eyes wide at the sight of profit

Although he looked like a fool, he was not stupid. These two women have the same face of greedy people, and the moment they heard 5 silver coins, their eyes lit up and almost drool.

Old Lady Bai said with a heavy expression on the face: “What’s the difference between now and later? Or perhaps, you don’t believe this old lady?”

The young man hurriedly waved his hand: “No, no, it’s not that I don’t believe you. But it’s the rule, otherwise, I don’t how I will explain to our Boss.”

Mrs. Liu busily said: “What is there to explain? Your Boss gave you 5 silver coins to buy melons and sent you here to pull back the melons. If you have the melons with you, what else is there to explain?”

The young man said: “I just said that when we are doing business, the goods must be in front of us before we hand over the money, and then pulled out the goods. We’ve been doing our business like this. Please don’t make things difficult for me. Let’s just do it like this, you take me to Miss Bai Zhi, as long as she nodded her head, then I will immediately give you the money, how about it?”

Mrs. Liu secretly sneered, if Bai Zhi will nod her head, why would they spend so much time to convince him here?

Old Lady then said: “You, young man, it’s not good to do business with you. You go back now, my granddaughter will not continue to do business with you. We will not sell any melon with you today.”

When the young man heard of this, his face got pale. The restaurant was waiting for the melons so that they could prepare the meals. If he will not be able to get melons on time, then they will be miserable.

The young man then thought for a moment. They were family, so if he hands over the money, won’t it be the same?

The young man took out the money and was about to hand it to Old Lady Bai and Mrs. Liu. But at the same time, Hu Changlin, who was holding a bamboo pole, he recognized the carriage of the restaurant parked on the road. He saw the coachman talking to Old Lady Bai and Mrs. Liu. He was handling a pouch to the old lady and so he hurriedly shouted: “What are you doing?”

The young man turned back, and so his hand that was holding the pouch also turned back. Old Lady Bai, who failed to receive the money, was very angry inside her heart. She stretched out her arm to grab the money, but Hu Changlin already pushed the young man behind him and said: “What do you think you’re doing?”

Old Lady Bai was so angry that she shouted: “What we are doing has nothing to do with you, right? Your just a dog who catches mice, you are so nosy.”

Mrs. Liu also busily said: “That’s right, who do you think you are? Are you Zhao Lan’s secret lover?”

Hu Changlin took a deep breath to ease his anger a bit: “No ivory comes from the mouth of a dogif I am such a kind of person, then what more are you? Pah!”

The young man was shocked: “This, uncle, who are you?”

Hu Changlin said: “You, didn’t you came to get the melons? Let’s go, I’ll take you there to get the goods.”

The young man pointed his finger to Old Lady Bai and Mrs. Liu: “Them, aren’t they Miss Bai Zhi’s grandmother and aunt?”

Hu Changlin shook his head: “Of course not, don’t listen to them, they are women who only open one’s eyes wide at the sight of profit.

The young man released a sigh of relief. Fortunately, this uncle arrived on time. Otherwise, the 5 silver coins will be robbed by these two.

Old Lady Bai and Mrs. Liu coldly stared at the departing carriage. They wanted to rush to Hu Changlin and beat him. It’s just Hu Feng was not easy to provoke. If they beat Hu Changlin, they will be beaten too, right?

“Niang, next year, we better grow melons too, so that we can earn 5 silver coins per 100 pounds. If we plant melons in our 5 acres of land, won’t we make fortune by then?”

Old Lady Bai nodded her head: “Yes, we will also grow melons next year so that we can earn much more money for Xiaofeng’s studies.”
