80s Sweet Marriage: Struggle for a Good Life - Chapter 40
“Royal jelly? Who is sick again in your family? Isn’t your dad……” Halfway through, Zheng Mingming didn’t dare continue.
“Not at all, but it’s useful anyway.”
“Five boxes…… that’s 40 yuan!!! Zheng Mingming suddenly felt a burst of pain on her flesh.
However, Su Nuo didn’t intend to tell her more. Furthermore, she couldn’t tell Zheng Mingming what she had planned. Zheng Mingming’s mouth can’t be sealed, this matter is done for once it gets known.
Although Zheng Mingming couldn’t change Su Nuo’s mind, she promised to go to the health clinic with her on Wednesday afternoon to find her second aunt.
However, these little things were more popular than expected.
When a girl came to choose, Zheng Mingming by the side was groaning and sighing: “It’s a loss of profit, the value of these items is 5 máo5 but it’s being sold for 3 máo6. No, wait, that pile of handkerchiefs, each one only cost 1 máo 57, and there is even a pile of hair ties.”
As soon as the girl heard it, she chose the pile of handkerchiefs and bought them. Then she left joyously.
Su Nuo gave a thumbs up to Zheng Mingming: “Good, it’s worthy of being my apprentice.”
Immediately, by dismissal time, two more girls came to choose things.
Su Nuo waved her hand: “Take these all away for 5 máo8. It’s more cost-effective to divide between you two.”
Zheng Mingming had been howling by the side: “Su Nuo, you’re suffering a loss and you still sold them off. You can’t sell like this.”
As a result, the girls didn’t wait for Zheng Mingming to pounce, they quickly threw down the 5 máo9 and the shoebox was taken away.
It was not just having a loss, even the capital and profits had been earned back long ago then much less money had been earned/cheated.
What they expected to be sold for a week had been sold in two days, the remaining several days are the days they would rest.
During this period, many students came over to ask: “Don’t you still have the small pink mirror?” “Don’t you still have that rhinestone that can be attached to clothes?”
Zheng Mingming and Su Nuo shook their hands: “No more la. We won’t have until the next week at the earliest. You can come with your money on Monday.”
On Wednesday afternoon, Su Nuo followed Zheng Mingming to her second aunt’s health clinic.
In the end, after asking once, only three boxes at most of ginseng royal jelly can be prescribed. This is already Zheng Mingming’s second aunt giving them face.
Zheng Mingming patted her chest: “Good la, saved quite a lot of money ne. We can now buy more goods and make a lot of money next week.”
Su Nuo poked her finger at Zheng Mingming’s forehead: “There’re two boxes less of royal jelly, our joint-stock school shop may have to be closed soon.”
“Ah? So critical!” Zheng Mingming blinked her small eyes, her face full of uncertainty.
“Let it be, I’ll think of another way.” Su Nuo’s eyes looked left and right. Finally, settling her eyes on the small cars rushing on the road, she thought of a solution.
During the lunch break the next day, Su Nuo arranged a very difficult mission for Zheng Mingming: “You go call my brother to come here, tell him that I want to ask him questions.”
Zheng Mingming blanked out: “Why don’t you go yourself? Isn’t it better to go and ask directly?”
“You should go, go quickly. My brother would definitely understand, and he will more likely follow you to come here.” Su Nuo said, pushing Zheng Mingming out of the classroom.
