Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 127
Halil’s subordinate, who was appointed to be in charge of the purchase, looked up the right holder of the workshop and contacted him early in the week.
They immediately started negotiating the sale price, and it took them three days to haggle the price down to almost half of the initial offer.
It was the day before yesterday when we paid the agreed amount in a lump sum, shook hands with the negotiator with a smile, and received the key to the workshop.
Yesterday, Ekaterina received the key from the person in charge of purchasing, and delivered it to Rev.
I’ve heard that Japanese companies are notorious around the world for being slow to make decisions, but I wonder if the empire is still very European. Perhaps the business speed is fast enough to beat the global standard of my previous life.
Most of the companies I’ve been involved with in my previous life have made only a week’s worth of progress in convincing my boss that I need to make a presentation to get approval for a purchase budget. That’s progress? I know that sounds like a lot, but that’s really how it is for conglomerate companies.
And even after cutting the price in half, the price of the workshop is still worth several times my annual income from my previous life….
Even though it was a black company, our company paid a good amount of overtime. That’s why I think my income was fairly good for my generation.
But to think it’s several times that.
…I’m sure I died of exhaustion without having time to use that earnings properly…I’m sure my savings returned into the government unclaimed money treasury…well, there’s no point in thinking about it.
Anyway, not only the Siscon Big Brother, but also all the duke’s officials spoiled me by buying me a glass studio.
Now that they’ve spoiled me, I have to be careful not to get spoiled even any further.
Even in my previous life, tens of millions of yen was enough to change people’s lives. In this world where there is a huge gap between rich and poor, I don’t know how many people’s lives I could change if I were a commoner. After having that much money spent on me, I have to do everything I can to make sure the Duke House doesn’t lose any more money!
“Rev, you can count on me. I need you to create a lot more of beautiful, people-pleasing things.” (Ekaterina)
“Thank you, my Lady. I would love to be able to do that as well.” (Rev)
“I’m glad. I don’t know anything about glass. You’re the only one who can help me make this work.” (Ekaterina)
Ekaterina smiled, but her expression immediately tightened.
“But I don’t want you to have to bear the entire burden alone. This workshop is now in my name, and in the name of Yurinova, I will bring the benefits of being a part of the Duke’s household to this workshop. And eventually, I will fulfill my duty to return the benefits from the workshop to the Duke.” (Ekaterina)
“A boon and a duty…?” (Rev)
Ekaterina nodded at Rev, who was puzzled.
“First, let me ask you something. You said that Master Murano was not very good at business. How about you? Do you plan to keep track of everything in the workshop, including business, like your master? Or would you prefer to be able to concentrate on making your work?” (Ekaterina)
Rev gulped and let his gaze wander for a moment.
“Well…I’m sorry, I have no idea about business nor money matters. My master always said that I’m not suited for business, and that I’d be better off as a hired craftsman rather than owning my own workshop.” (Rev)
“Well, then, I guess we’ll just have to split the work.” (Ekaterina)
Ekaterina says cheerfully.
