But Uncle Zhang needed money to achieve all this. The majority of the money he made from selling fish was handed over to the market owner. He only kept a pitifully small portion. Now that he was able to directly supply fish to Jufu Lou, he could retain the money that he was originally going to give to the market owner. How could he suppress the ecstasy in his heart?
The manager approached the ox cart and unloaded everything from it. He was about to go weigh the two baskets, but Boss Xu waved his hand. “There’s no need to weigh them. Whether it is ten catties or not, hand a thirty-silver banknote to Xia guniang. From now on, the Bisanxi will be bought at three silvers per catty.”
The manager did not know about the profits of dishes made from Bisanxi. A wild weed actually was purchased at such a high price of three silvers per catty. This made him very surprised. But since the owner himself said it, he naturally wouldn’t be stupid enough to question anything. He went to retrieve three banknotes worth ten silvers each as according to Boss Xu’s command. These banknotes with small denominations were exactly what YuanQiu wanted.
At first, Uncle Zhang thought that he heard wrong. He was wondering how a wild weed could be worth three silvers a catty. This was absolutely impossible. He finally realized that it was actually true when the manager handed three ten-silvers banknote to YuanQiu.
Boss Xu personally sent them to the door. He said that he would invite her to take a look when he chose a good location for the medicinal cuisine restaurant. He said a few more words before they left.
Uncle Zhang looked from time to time at the empty baskets on his ox cart. He was full of doubts, but didn’t say anything. YuanQiu saw his expression and smiled as she asked, “Uncle Zhang, you want to ask why my wild weed can fetch such a good price, right?”
Uncle Zhang scratched his head in embarrassment and smiled wryly. “I am a bit curious, but if you don’t want to say it, then you don’t have to say it. Uncle Zhang understands.”
