Transmigrated Farmgirl's Scheme to Get Rich - Chapter 44
Liu Fengchun said, “Ten dollars to cover the cost of the materials. From now on, you only have to pay thirty dollars every month. If anyone’s giving you trouble, just ask the street patrol to come over, you won’t have to come to me specifically anymore.”
The two sisters were stunned, they didn’t come to find him today! It must’ve been Cao Zhang.
Mo Ling paid the money, and Mo Yan took the document and read it happily. Only then did Liu Fengchun realise that she was literate.
“Little girl, do you know how to read?”
Mo Yan smiled and said, “My body is weak, and my sister was reluctant to let me work, so I listened to the teacher at my village’s school outside of the building every day.”
“It’s rare for village girls to be literate.”
The two sisters went home. Mo Yan was very happy, and jumped up and down while holding the paperwork, “Sis, we’ll be running a legal business in the future, and no one can drive us away. We’ll have a spot no matter when we arrive.”
“Yes, with this document, our lives will be much easier!”
When they got home, Mrs. Liang was drying the medicinal herbs. Seeing them come in, she asked listlessly, “Why did you come back at this time? Could you not sell anything?”
It turned out that she thought they couldn’t sell anything today, so they returned home later to try and sell some more wrap.
Mo Yan held up the document in her hand and said with a smile, “Mom, look, this is the business document we got from Qianshui City’s governing official. From now on, we’ll be operating a legal business, and no one will be able to drive us away.”
Mrs Liang was illiterate, but she knew about business documents.
“Did he really give you one? Feng’er, come over here.”
In her eyes, her son was a scholar, and Mo Yan only knew a few words.
When Mo Feng came out of his room, Mrs. Liang brought the document and handed it to him, “See if this document is real.”
Mo Feng took the document and read, “Business document. Owner, Mo Ling, sixteen years old, female, from Chen Zhongcun. Business location, opposite to the main road in Qianshui City. Business scope, selling on-the-go food such as wraps. Guaranteer, Cao Anshi. Signed, Liu Fengchun of Qianshui City.”
“Is this for real?” Mrs. Liang still couldn’t believe it.
Mo Feng returned the document to her, “It’s true, there is a signature and stamp from the governing official.”
“That’s great, that’s great!”
Mo Ling carried a basket of duck eggs into the kitchen, and Mo Yan got the pot of cracked duck eggs. Mrs. Liang took a look at Mo Yan’s pot, “Why are these duck eggs cracked?”
The sisters didn’t speak, and Mrs. Liang asked again, “Did someone bully you?”
Mo Ling replied, “No, it’s fine.”
“Why didn’t you let me go!”
“Even if you went, it’d be useless. Didn’t we deal with it ourselves?”
Mo Ling put the wallet on the table, and Mrs. Liang immediately poured out all the money, “We earned so much today, more than every day before.”
“Not all of these eggs are broken, and they gave us this basket of a hundred duck eggs for free. We can’t take advantage of them, so I want to repay them.”
When it comes to money, Mrs. Liang was very cautious “The duck eggs are broken, how can you still count them! Who would buy broken eggs.”
“How about the ones that aren’t broken?”
“What’s in good condition you can repay. What’s cracked and broken…”
Before Mrs. Liang could finish speaking, she heard a “sizzling” sound in the frying pan, and Mo Ling said, “We’ve cooked all the cracked eggs.”
Mrs. Liang ran to the side of the frying pan and looked at it, “We can’t eat that much at once!”
“With your son, what can’t we finish?”
After counting the money, there was more than 600 dollars. If they earned this much every day, they could buy livestock by autumn.
They made flatbread and egg wraps. However, the duck eggs didn’t taste as good as chicken eggs, so Mo Yan added sauce and spring onions, which made it much better.
After eating, the two sisters lay on the kang to rest, and Mo Yan picked up the business document and looked at it, “Where should we put it? People who have shops frame and hang it there, but we don’t have a shop…”
“Let’s also frame it, so it won’t get damaged.”
Framing requires tools, materials, and experience. They didn’t have any of those, and they didn’t know where to find someone who knew how to do framing.
Mo Ling looked at the roof and said, “Mr. Tian knows how. I’ll go to him for help later.”
“I’ll go with you.”
“You don’t need to, it’s not like I don’t know where the school is.”
Mo Yan was tired and fell asleep. When she woke up, her sister was not in the house, nor in the yard, nor in the kitchen.
She ran to the school, but the students had already gone home. Through the window lattice, she saw that there was someone in the house where Mr. Tian lived.
Mr. Tian was working at the table in front of the window. Taking a closer look, he was framing their business document.
Mo Yan moved to the side, and saw her sister sitting opposite Mr. Tian.
After the frame was finished, Mr. Tian said, “It can’t be moved right now.”
“Okay, then I’ll pick it up tomorrow morning. Thank you sir.”
After that, Mo Ling should’ve said goodbye, but she had no intention of leaving.
“I’d like to thank you for going to find me and Yan’er that night.”
“It’s okay, Madam Cao was worried for Cao Zhang, so I followed.”
“You live by yourself, so if there is any sewing work you need help with, I can help.”
“No, Mrs. Cao has arranged everything.”
Mo Yan felt lucky that Mr. Tian didn’t let her sister help. She pretended to have just arrived and called for Mo Ling outside, so she left and went home with Mo Yan.
After dinner, Mo Yan went to tell stories, and Mo Ling followed. She didn’t hear what Mo Yan was talking about, and her eyes were only focused on Mr. Tian.
The next morning, Mo Yan went for a run by the pond as usual, ran to the door of the Lu family home, and saw Lu Junming practising in the yard with the staff from yesterday.
Seeing Mo Yan running over, Lu Junming ran out. Mo Yan smiled at him with her hands behind her back, “Is your stomach all right? I forgot to ask you yesterday.”
“Morning! I was fine after a while, don’t worry.”
“Thank you for what you did yesterday!”
“It’s fine, I was longing for a spar anyways! It’s a pity that Manager Liang wasn’t worth it. Next time, I’ll beat him up until I knock out all his teeth.”
“Okay, but violence won’t solve the problem. Now that we have a business document, as long as we don’t break the law, no one can drive us away.”
When returning home, Mo Yan remembered the business document her sister had asked Mr. Tian to frame, so she didn’t go home and went straight to the school instead.
As soon as Mo Yan took the document and was about to go home, Cao Zhang arrived at the school, “Yan’er, is your business document ready?”
“It’s done, take a look.” Mo Yan showed him the framed document, “Mr. Cao, thank you for your guarantee!”
“You don’t need to thank me, it’s not a big deal. With this, those people won’t try and trouble you again.”
“Yes, my sister is still waiting for me, so I’ll go first.” She had just finished speaking when Mo Ling came over, “Yan’er, why are you here?”
Mo Yan raised the document in his hand, “I’m here to get the framed document, so you can save yourself another trip.”
Mo Ling bowed low to Mr. Tian, who was standing at the door of his house, “Thank you sir.”
Mr. Tian nodded slightly towards her and said, “You’re welcome.”
Post-edit notes: More of Mo Ling simping. Mr. Tian isn’t that attractive ok? Cut it down gal, it ain’t gonna go well if you’re being that obvious about it.
