More than ten days passed in the blink of an eye.
In a twinkling of an eye, the grapes matured and more than one acre of field was planted with grapes. At this time there were more than 1600 clusters of grapes. Xu Muan and Xiao Jingting picked the first five hundred clusters of grapes and sent them to the city.
Because they had already made oral contracts with Yuehe restaurant and several families in the city, the grapes were out of stock quickly this time. Three hundred strands were sold to the owner of Yuehe restaurant at a price of two hundred copper coins, and another two hundred strings were sold to the big families at a price of 250 copper coins.
Sold to several big families in the city.
Five hundred clusters of grapes earned a total of 112 silver, Xiao Jingting, who had silver, gave 30 silver to Xu Muan who holding a large bag of silver felt like he was dreaming. Xu Muan even walked lightly with this bag of silver.
“Shall we go back now?” Xu Muan asked.
Xiao Jingting shook his head and said: “No, let’s go to the weapons store and buy something to set traps.”
Xu Muan nodded and said: “Good!” The crops in the middle fields are almost ripe, so they need to prepare early.
Xiao Jingting spent twelve silver to buy a lot of iron clips and some sharp thorns.
Xu Muan eyes were attracted by a pair of sleeve arrows in the weapon shop. Xiao Jingting followed Xu Muan gaze and looked at the sleeve arrows on the wall and said: “Do you like it? Buy it if you like it.” The sleeve arrows hanging on the wall were not ordinary goods at a glance. Xu Muan liked to hunt in the jungle, he did not have the proper weapons, which is really too unsafe.
“Sir, you really have a good eye. This sleeve arrow is made from the sharp thorns of a fifth-grade needle beast and can easily pierce the hard armor of a third-grade monster.” The head of the weapons shop said.
“How much silver!” Xiao Jingting asked.
“Thirty silver.” Xu Muan was stunned and secretly surprised.
Xiao Jingting generously took out thirty silver and bought it.
Xu Muan stopped him and said: “Forget it, it’s too expensive.”
Xiao Jingting shook his head and said: “It’s fine, you love to leap into the mountains when you’re fine, you always needed a decent pair of weapons.”
Xu Muan looked at Xiao Jingting cheerful appearance and felt warm in his heart. Xu Muan didn’t know why Xiao Jingting had become like this and only prayed secretly that Xiao Jingting would keep going like this.
After buying the sleeve arrows and the things needed to set up the trap, the silver in Xiao Jingting hand suddenly went down most of the way again.
“Do you need to buy anything else?” Xu Muan asked.
“It would be better to buy a storage bag.” Xiao Jingting said.
Xu Muan face went white, the storage bag was a precious thing. A storage bag with a cubic meter space inside can sell for eighty silver. It was a good thing to have but it was too expensive.
Xiao Jingting looked at Xu Muan and said with a smile: “I was just thinking about it. There are many places to spend money at home now so it is not good to buy that thing at present.”
“Are we going back now?” Xu Muan asked.
“We will buy some jars and go back.” Xiao Jingting said
“Why do you want to buy jars for?” Xu Muan asked
“In the future, you will know.” Xiao Jingting said.
Xu Muan didn’t ask any more questions when he heard these words. He accompanied Xiao Jingting to buy dozens of jars, large and small, which were not expensive. After buying a pile of them, they only spent one or two silver.
After shopping, Xiao Jingting and Xu Muan went out of the city and joined the people in the ox cart.
Seeing Xiao Jingting and Xu Muan coming back, several villagers in the ox cart glanced at the sleeve arrows on Xu Muan arms. Although the villagers were poor, many of them knew the goods.
Xu Muan was a little embarrassed and sat down next to Xiao Jingting.
“Xiao family should be making a lot of money, now!” Some villagers said.
Xiao Jingting shook his head and said: “No, it’s just some small money.”
“Xiao, you are too modest. Are you afraid to let us know that your husband’s sleeve arrows cost dozen of silver?”
“Muan, can hunt in the mountains and jungle when he has nothing to do, without even a proper weapon, I’m really worried.” Xiao Jingting avoided the important things.
“Master Xiao, I heard that you sold the grapes to Yuehe restaurant. The grapes are valuable. How did you grow the grapes? How did you grow it like that? “
“I just planted it casually.” Xiao Jingting said faintly.
Xiao Jingting lowered his eyes, before when he sold the grapes he had already attracted the attention of many people. As far as he knew, many people had learned from him to improve their soil and grow grapes. Once the grapes were sold, everyone in the village would know.
If he keeps selling grapes like that he would make many people jealous, and then… in the end, his roots are too shallow! Doing everything yourself is too tiring.
As if sensing Xiao Jingting worry, Xu Muan reaches out and grabbed Xiao Jingting hand. Xiao Jingting also held Xu Muan hand back.
