I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 144
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Mu Mingtang, who was sipping on some tea in the manor, didn’t know how much she inadvertently embarrassed a few people. She carefully looked at the blue woven golden clouds on the brocade in her hand, and wondered: “This brocade is so beautiful, the weave is neat, the color is warm, soft and docile. It’ll make a good robe. Have the other colors been sent here?”
“Li Ji Tailor has already delivered it.”
Mu Mingtang nodded, she saw this material at a glance. She was actually thinking of making some new clothes for Xie Xuanchen, and happened to run into this fabric. This shade of blue was pure and noble looking, Xie Xuanchen would look so good in it.
Moreover, this color is suitable for both men and women, she can also use it, so Mu Mingtang spent rather lavishly and bought all of that fabric. Mu Mingtang spent money for the whole afternoon, and at the moment she was quite satisfied, and said, “Okay, how much does all this cost, let’s settle it altogether.”
After Mu Mingtang’s “shopping” spree was over, she happily went back to Yu Lin Hall to collect her winnings. She didn’t know, at the moment, because she bought out that brocade, this brocade became famous in the capital. Everyone wanted to see what was so special about the brocade that both the two princesses were fighting for. Business owners started to look for places that sold these brocades, and the prices for Song brocades increased within a few days. In the end, the price of this brocade rose ten times over its original price.
When Mu Mingtang heard about this, the market price had already risen significantly. Mu Mingtang was surprised when she heard the quotation: “How much did you say this brocade cost?”
“One thousand silvers for one tael.”
When Mu Mingtang heard the price, she didn’t speak for a long time, and couldn’t help but ask: “It’s not during seasonal periods or any festive seasons, why has the price risen so much?”
The maid lowered her head and gave off a hesitant expression: “Princess, it is because Princess Jin also wanted to buy this same brocade on that day.”
Only then did Mu Mingtang know that she had cut off Jiang Mingwei without knowing it.
That following night, Mu Mingtang was deep in thought. After nightfall, Xie Xuanchen noticed this and asked, “What’s wrong with you?”
Mu Mingtang pursed her lips, and suddenly leaned closer. In a whispering tone, as if she was about to share a secret, she said to Xie Xuanchen, “Do you know that I bought a few pieces of fabric the other day?”
Xie Xuanchen nodded: “I know. What’s wrong?”
After Mu Mingtang said that, she felt slightly embarrassed, that’s not a few pieces. But she remained calm, and went on: “There was one golden brocade. At that time, I asked for the price. It was eighty silver for one tael, but now it has become one thousand silver! It has only been a few days, and it has risen almost ten times!”
After hearing this, Xie Xuanchen nodded and said: “My wife is really good at managing our family’s expenses. Buying things, you not only can save money, but now you’re even earning money. As expected, you should be in charge of our finances, I’ll rely on you on that from now on.”
When Xie Xuanchen said these words, he was extremely righteous and confident. Mu Mingtang felt helpless after hearing his words. She didn’t think she was really a genius or talented on this. As long as a person puts their effort into it, they would be able to handle the finances. Does Xie Xuanchen really know nothing about it? He was just too lazy to bother.
Mu Mingtang realized that Xie Xuanchen had strayed her away from the topic again, and she quickly pulled the topic back: “I’m not trying to talk to you about this. Do you know why it has doubled tenfold?”
