Chapter 100: Sell a bottle
As soon as he sees Muyan, Chen Qingfeng comes over in shame. He says with his head hanging low: “Miss Jun, I’m so useless, I’ve let you down. You spent so much to buy this shop, but my shop can’t make you any money at all. On the contrary, its even making you lose money.”
In reality, Muyan doesn’t really care about this pharmacy’s income.
After all, she still has the entire property of Jin Hong Men.
But seeing Chen Qingfeng’s miserable appearance, she smiles a little and says: “It doesn’t matter. I got your shop just because I was looking for a place to sell the draughts that I personally refined.”
“Ah! So Miss Jun actually makes draughts!” Chen Qingfeng excitedly says, “Could it be that what you gave me, you also made that bottle of draught for insanity and tuberculosis?”
Even though he received the draught from Muyan, Chen Qingfeng never thought that the person who made it would be Muyan.
After all, Muyan looks too young.
Muyan just smiles faintly, noncommittal.
Chen Qingfeng promptly asks again: “May I ask what kind of draught are you planning to sell in this shop?”
Muyan flips her wrist and a porcelain bottle appears in her palm. She says in an unenthusiastic manner: “Sell this bottle.”
Chen Qingfeng carefully and excitedly takes it to check, and when he sees the draught’s name that Muyan placed on it, he becomes dumbfounded.
“This… this… this is a Mysterious Energy Philter?” Chen Qingfeng blinks his eyes, hesistantly saying, “That, Miss Jun, you… are you not mistaken? Mysterious Energy Philter is the most basic draught, any apothecary can refine it easily, there’s some even in our pharmacy.”
That’s right, Chen Qingfeng’s Chenji Drugstore doesn’t have an apothecary to refine or prepare draughts, they only prepare the ordinary herbs.
This is also the reason why almost nobody ever comes here.
After all, how much benefit can you really get from taking ordinary herbs?
Of course, the herbs that are made into draughts can produce the best results for the practitioners.
However, Chenji Drugstore doesn’t have those good kinds of draughts.
But this Mysterious Energy Philter, the cheapest and most common draught… can still appear in their shop from time to time
Nevertheless, Muyan heedlessly says: “Right, what I want you to sell is precisely this Mysterious Energy Philter.”
Chen Qingfeng becomes even more flabbergasted: “Only this bottle?”
Is this a prank? Selling not only this lowest ranked draught, but also just one bottle?
There are more than a dozen of this Philters in the store’s current inventory!
Muyan nods, unquestionable, “Sell a bottle.”
The expression on Chen Qingfeng’s face is all messed up.
He gently and carefully asks: “That, Miss Jun, for how much should we sell your draught?”
It’s unexpectedly at this point where Muyan shows a hesitant expression.
Because she doesn’t know how to set a price for the “New Mysterious Energy Philter” that she refined.
“Baby, how much money do you think should I set for this Mysterious Energy Philter?” and so, Muyan bows her head down to ask her darling son.
Xiao Bao tilts his tiny head up, his big bright eyes looking at Muyan, but they also reveal a blank look.
Xiao Bao doesn’t have any concept of money!
Muyan’s eyes turn, having a sudden enlightenment, “There is a way!”
Sayin so, she fishes out a dice from her chest pocket and hands it to Xiao Bao: “Baby, roll this, and the number you’ll roll will be the amount of gold we’ll sell it for, okay?”
Xiao Bao expressionlessly nods. He takes the dice and puts it in his small, fair hands. He makes a show of doing it seriously as he shakes it, before releasing the dice on the table.
