Major General’s Smart and Gorgeous Wife - chapter 113
Lin Mumu left the dessert shop and continued to wander aimlessly around the market .
In the end, she momentarily stayed in front of a delicate wooden shopfront with a white piece of A4 paper pinned on the door . On it were written three big words in fine brush stokes “Store to transfer” .
Seeing this kind of powerful calligraphy, Lin Mumu couldn’t help but look at it a little more . Perhaps this was because of her special eyesight .
There were many green prosperous shops in this market that appeared lush and verdant, and all of them had several kinds of flower and plant pots put in front of their shops to attract the customers .
However, the color of this shop was a faint yellow . On the shopfront, there was only a small table on which were put a quicksand bonsai and a few ball cacti .
However, what was unusual was a Daoist immortal pillar in the shopfront, loftily towering over the market, which appeared particularly out of place in the casual and ordinary layout of the flowers’ and birds’ market .
Lin Mumu curiously entered inside and discovered that there were windows all around the shop and the inside was brightly bathed in sunshine from all sides . The lightening was very good, but surprisingly, there wasn’t a single pot of green plants in the room . The plants inside were all succulent plants with yellow, red and white colors . Although the fleshy leaves appeared lovely, they appeared too young and there was a somewhat green smell lingering around .
(TN: It’s not specified what a green smell is supposed to mean . Perhaps the smell of succulent plants?)
However, these inconspicuous fleshy succulent plants made Lin Mumu’s eyes brighten in delightful surprise . She clearly remembered that four years later, when she graduated from University, these fleshy plants suddenly swept the whole country like a gust of wind and became the next big trend as they occupied the young People’s hearts .
“There’s a transfer note on the door . Please come in after reading it . ” From the shop’s inner room came a reminder when she had barely made a few steps inside .
“En, I’ll look at it . ” Lin Mumu nodded .
Just a moment ago, she could read that the transfer of this shop wasn’t going smoothly because the boss was so stubborn that the person who wanted to take over the place needed to guarantee that within three years, at least half of the area of the shop would be used for the management of succulent Plants .
Chapter 113 – Fleshy succulents’ shop (Part 2)
Normal people were naturally not willing to accept this kind of condition that restricted their development . Even if the boss said it could make profits, many people still choose to simply give up on this shop and its unreasonable owner .
“Do you want to engage in the fleshy business?” The woman with abundant wavy hair sitting in front of the computer behind the counter finally raised her head to look at Lin Mumu with a surprised look on her face .
However, she was a little disappointed when she saw the simple and young student with an obvious debutant atmosphere around her .
“Hello, my name is Hong Xiaoling, I’m a graduate student from Huada . ” The shopkeeper politely reached out for a handshake .
“My name is Lin Mumu, I’m a freshman at Yanda . ”
“a Freshman? How many plants would you like?” Hong Xiaoling didn’t despise Lin Mumu because she was a freshman . Despite her customer’s young age, she still put on a professional smile and showed her around the shop .
“I didn’t expect that Big sister Hong’s fleshy plants would be raised so well . You should be a more than 3 years veteran, right? Although they’re not really tall, all these plants appear to be maintained with painstaking effort . How can Big sister bear to sell them?”
“You seem to have some insight . ” Seeing that Lin Mumu could immediately see the value of these plants with a glance, Hong Xiaoling’s interest in this young freshman immediately rose .
“I’m going abroad to pursue my studies in a month . These babies have already been with me for six years, so it’s time to let go . ” Hong Xiaoling poured Lin Mumu and herself a cup of coffee before continuing:
“I know that succulent plants aren’t easy to sell, so as long as you promise me to treat them well, and not throw them away even if you can’t sell them, I can give you a discount on the purchasing price of the store .
If you still can’t accept these terms, I can rent some place in the store and let you sell them on my behalf, and I’ll let you manage their price . I’ve already developed some feelings towards them, so I’m reluctant to casually abandon them . ”
Hong Xiaoling seemed to have dearly care for her plants . However, she also seemed to have somewhat developed a good impression of Lin Mumu, a young girl whose character was mature and composed despite her young age .
