Chapter: Ten Thousand teals umbrella; hundred thousand teals shop

Wen Qing looked at the surrounding restaurants, and noticing that the most magnificent was the Hongyun building, she raised her feet to enter there.

The lobby on the ground floor that was originally lively immediately became silent when they saw her entering, immediately followed by whispers and critical remarks. Wen Qing pretended not to hear and directly headed to the second floor. The second floor was much cleaner. She chose a seat by the window, and Xiao Er paused before rushing to greet her.

"Madam, what would you like to eat? ”

It's not that women do not come to the restaurant, but it was the first time that he'd seen someone dressed so strangely.

Wen Qing looked faintly, "Pick a few of your signature dishes and send them."

“All right! Just a moment, madam! ”

Xiao Er had just left, and an uninvited guest came and sat on the seat opposite to hers. He was a young man with big eyes and bushy eyebrows, wearing luxurious clothes. She could tell from the first glance that he was either very rich or a noble. He smiled and asked, "Lady, where did you buy this umbrella?”

It was the tenth brother[1] Yin. Because the ninth brother was interested in this umbrella, he had volunteered to ask her.==============[阿哥 elder brother; big brother; son; title of a Manchu Emperor's son not yet of age]

Wen Qing glanced at him and said, "I made it myself.”

"Ah? Then there won't be any place to buy it?" The disappointment was clear on Yin's face. He immediately turned his attention and leaned closer, "Or, Lady, how about you sell me the umbrella? You quote the price, I will not bargain!" He patted his chest to assure her.

"Okay." Wen Qing readily agreed, then stretched out a finger and waved in front of him.

"So readily! Girl, you are truly ... Such a strange umbrella costs only one or two pieces of silver. I can't let you suffer. I'll give you the twelfth okay ... "

"Ten thousand taels. ”

“You're welcome, I’ll give the money to you and take it! Eh? Wait, what did you just say? Ten thousand taels?!" Yin suddenly jumped up from the stool. His eyes widened, “Why don't you just rob me ah! What broken umbrella is worth ten thousand taels!”

Wen Qing looked at him in surprise, "No money? You don't have any money, What a wayward person. Also don't bargain here, scram~!”

Yin's face turned into an ugly shade of red, and he didn't know how to refute her. At that time, another voice came from upstairs, "Tenth brother, You are gone for a while! You're still taking it seriously!" Ninth prince, Yinyi, said as he descended from the upstairs with a cold face. He was followed by the 8th prince, Yinsi, who was adorned by a gentle smile.

When Yin heard him, he glared at Wen Qing, "You dare to make fun of me?”

"This thing belongs to me. I could place whatever price I wanted on it. If you feel it's too expensive, then don't buy it. How could you say that I am making fun of you?" Wen Qing was composed.

Yin was rendered speechless. She truly made sense.

"Girl, don't be offended, it's our brother who is at fault." Yinsi said with a smile to mediate the dispute. "It's just that my brother really likes this umbrella. I wonder if the girl could part with her cherished possession?”

Wen Qing looked at him with a faint smile, "You want the umbrella but don't want to pay money. You want me to give you this umbrella for nothing, don't you? You are really good at manipulation.”

Yinsi who was good at controlling situations, also blushed as she finished talking. There was no denying that he actually meant that, but his intentions being said right to the face was still too embarrassing.

"However, it is also not impossible to gift it to you..."

Wen Qing's statement made Yinsi look at her with hope. He quickly said, "The girl has some demands..... Let's hear it." At the thought of the tenth brother being beaten in the face for boasting just now, he silently swallowed the words that came to his mouth and changed them into a safer statement.

Wen Qing also didn't care, and readily pointed a finger out of the window, "Sell me the opposite shop the umbrella is yours.”

"Impudent! " Yintang's face sank immediately, glaring at her, "I thought she was so audacious because she didn't know our identity. But she does know about us and still dares to disrespect us.”

Hongyun building belongs to Yintang, also the shop opposite to Hongyun Building. Wen Qing asked them to sell the shop opposite to her, apparently knowing that the owner of these two places is the same person. Since she found out that the boss was the same person, how could she not know that the boss was the current ninth prince? After all, there's nothing wrong with doing business.

So in other words, this woman was clearly aware that the people standing in front of her were princes, and was still so arrogant. This made Yintang very angry. He was born noble and has never been looked down upon like this.

"That shop has been idle for half a year. Since it's idle anyway, it is better to sell it to me. We could negotiate the price." Wen Qing was smiling, not being frightened by him.

Sure enough, this woman has already inquired! But if this was the case, it was more infuriating.

Yintang smiled contrary to the anger he was feeling, "Okay! I will fulfill your wish. No-bargain price, hundred thousand teals!" He definitely mimicked what Wen Qing had said previously. Her umbrella costs 10,000 teals, then his shop's cost as 100,000 teals was not much compared to it. Yintang just said that in anger towards Wen Qing. He was sure that Wen Qing won't agree. This shop was worth 7 or 8,000 teals when it reached the top price of the day. She would spend 100,000 teals on it only if she was a lunatic!

"Deal! Tomorrow I have someone send the silver to your palace.”
