“Brother, are you kidding me, it is more than 60 teals of silver.” Qiu Bai couldn’t help asking.
Qiu Li shook his head and said: “How could I be mistaken? Xiao Jingting sold dozens of clusters of grapes in the market and made several taels of silver. Later, he sold all the grapes to the shopkeeper of Yuehe restaurant for 200 copper coins for string and earned more than 60 silver.” He spent some money bribing the waiter of Yuehe restaurant to find out this news.
He didn’t expect that grapes could be sold for money. Qiu Li felt ashamed and flustered when he thought of what he had said to Xiao Jingting before.
Qiu Bai widened his eyes and said puzzled: “What kind of grapes are so valuable?” The wild grapes on the back of the mountain are all uneaten.
Qiu Li shook his head and said: “I don’t know. You should go and ask Xiao Jingting .”
Qiu Bai said awkwardly: “Xiao Jingting has been acting strange recently. He doesn’t pay much attention to me.”
“Maybe you have been hanging him too much and he thought he will not be able to eat. He thought he won’t be able to take any advantage so he becomes lukewarm to you.” Qiu Li said.
Qiu Bai snorted coldly and said: “Brother, what are you talking about, do you want me to sleep with that bastard Xiao Jingting for some little favor? He doesn’t deserve it, too. ” All the people in the village thought that he was the most outstanding and that he would certainly be able to marry into a large family in the future. Xiao Jingting might as well be a young Master from Xiao family, but now he was not better than a poor man who has been just sent here.
Qiu Li frowned and said: “Today is different from the past. Xiao Jingting is nothing now. However, if he has such a good grape-growing skill, he will be able to show up sooner or later. Besides, the Xiao family house is the only one in this village.
Qiu Bai couldn’t help but feel a little moved by what he heard it, but on second thought, he didn’t feel right about it. “Brother, it’s not like you don’t know Xiao Jingting. He can’t help spending a lot of money on eating, drinking, whoring and gambling. He can’t help spending a lot of money. He seems to be getting better recently, but who knows how long he can hold on?”
Qiu Li nodded and said: “There is some truth in your worries, let’s wait and see.”
Qiu Bai continued: “If the grapes from Xiao Jingting can be sold for money, the news will come out sooner or later. When more people start planting them, they will naturally become worthless.”
Qiu Li nodded and said: “That’s right, you go and see how Xiao Jingting grapes are grown, if you can, we will follow suit. “
Qiu Bai eyes brightened as he said to himself: Yes! If grapes are so good for making money, there’s no reason to be cheap.
The next day, Xiao Jingting and Xu Muan encountered Qiu Bai again on their way to the fields.
Seeing Qiu Bai, Xu Muan couldn’t help but be filled with boredom.
“Brother Xiao, where are you going Qiu Bai asked enthusiastically.
Xiao Jingting said impatiently: “Rushing to the fields.”
“Brother Xiao, you’ve been getting more and more industrious lately!” Qiu Bai complimented.
“There’s almost no food left to eat, so naturally I have to be more diligent.” Xiao Jingting faintly said.
Qiu Bai laughed and said: “Brother Xiao, you’re such a joker, didn’t you just sell grapes and make a good amount of money?”
Xiao Jingting heart sank, the matter of him selling grapes had reached Qiu Bai ears so quickly, thinking of Qiu Li who had gone to the city with him yesterday . Xiao Jingting suddenly understood something, Qiu Bai knowing about it is probably because Qiu Li have told him about it: “That money has all been spent.”
Qiu Bai frowned and said: “So much money, how could it be all spent up.”
“Spent it all, it is all gone.” He didn’t want to either! But, money, he could not help spending it.
Qiu Bai face become tense as he smiled awkwardly, and responded with: “oh”
“Let’s go.” Xiao Jingting said to Xu Muan.
Xu Muan nodded and said: “All right!”
Xiao Jingting and Xu Muan went to fields and got busy.
Xiao Jingting found that the original owner still had some advantages, for example, this body of the original owner was so much better than the one he originally had. He used to have backache when he worked, but now he seemed to have endless strength.
Leaving a few bags of spirit rice for himself to eat, Xiao Jingting planned to sell the rest of the spirit rice. Xiao Jingting didn’t like to go to town, and Xu Muan was afraid that when Xiao Jingting would go to the town and become attracted to the colorful world and reverted to his old ways, and volunteered to take on the task of selling food.
