Medical Princess - Chapter 678
The person who came to Fanglan Embroidery Shop was a supervisor about 30 years old. She was very thin and seemed to be capable, but her smile was very kind. When she saw Madame Dong coming out of the room, she immediately took two steps forward and greeted her with a smile. “Madame Dong, you are so polite. I can come by myself! We have been partners for many years. Why do we need such a courtesy?”
“You’re welcome, Supervisor Xiao. Please!” Madame Dong smiled and led her into the room.
When they got into the room, the two of them sat down separately. The servant girl served tea and left.
“Madame Dong, I may have to trouble you again this time!” Supervisor Xiao took out an account book familiarly and handed it to Madame Dong. “Look, this is our recent account book.”
In the past three years, Supervisor Xiao had come to borrow money more than once. Both of them were familiar with their own procedures. Moreover, during these three years, Fanglan Embroidery Shop’s credit was indeed good. It had never failed to pay back. Sometimes it would delay for a few days. When it had money, it would immediately payback.
The two families were blended well!
“How much do you want to borrow this time?” Madame Dong didn’t take the account book. She frowned and asked in awkwardness.
“What’s wrong? Could it be that Madame Dong can’t make it this time?” Supervisor Xiao’s heart skipped a beat. Everyone was smart and very clever. Although Madame Dong didn’t say anything, she meant that something was wrong.
“I do have something to deal with recently. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to lend you some money in a short time!” Madame Dong frowned more and more deeply. She smiled bitterly and said, “Originally, if you want to borrow money, I would definitely lend you. But this time…”
“Did something happen?” Supervisor Xiao asked with concern.
“There are indeed some things. Supervisor Xiao also knows that our master is not a high-ranking official. It is inconvenient for her to do something sometimes!” Madame Dong said implicitly.
“Has any official put her in a difficult position? Or any goods have been detained?” Supervisor Xiao became more and more concerned and asked eagerly. Most of the people who were in the business might confront difficulties in these two areas.
“In fact, it’s not a big deal, but for our business, it’s really a big deal… Now, it’s hard for my master to continue her business for a while!” Madame Dong sighed, reached out to rub her forehead, and sighed, “It’s just a business about women. Why should it be suppressed?”
“It’s the women’s business. But the aim of the businessmen is to make profits. Why should they care about whether it’s the women’s business or not?” Supervisor Xiao explained with a smile.
The business about women was indeed less eye-catching than the restaurants and hotels. Especially the shops that had just opened in the capital would have an unstable foundation and they were in urgent need of someone to support them. This was one of the reasons why they had chosen this Butterfly Clothing Shop before!
However, they didn’t expect that the supervisor of Butterfly Clothing Shop would be so good at dealing with matters in the past three years. There had never been anything that was beyond her capability.
Now that something had happened, it was very beneficial to their own business!
“We do not earn much. It’s really unexpected!” Madame Dong sighed again and shook her head helplessly. She looked really embarrassed.
A thought came to Supervisor Xiao’s mind. She reached out to hold Madame Dong’s hand and said very sincerely, “Madame Dong, in the past three years, we’ve blended well with each other. In the past three years, you’ve helped us a lot. Let me help you this time. Tell me what’s the matter? I’ve been in the capital for so many years, and I’m much more familiar with all kinds of people than you!”
“Madame Dong, I really want to help you! Although I don’t know what kind of trouble you have encountered, one more person would be one more power. Maybe I can help you solve this problem!” Supervisor Xiao became more and more attentive.
“Well… okay. If Supervisor Xiao can help us solve this problem, we Butterfly Clothing Shop will definitely give you a generous gift. As for the capital transfer of Fanglan Embroidery Shop, we will do our best to help!” Madame Dong was moved and promised.
“It’s not a big deal. Madame Dong, could you tell me what kind of trouble you have encountered?” Supervisor Xiao waved her hand and said casually.
“This matter is not small. A batch of cloth, embroidery, and other things sent to the capital have been detained. It is said that something is inappropriate. Our Butterfly Clothing Shop does business seriously, so how could such a thing happen? At present, these things are very important, related to some big clients and customers. If we don’t make these orders in time, we will have to pay a large sum of money. Our shop has only been in the capital for three years. If we lose this large amount of money, we may not keep a foothold in the capital!”
Madame Dong’s face was full of sadness. She frowned so hard that her brows could almost kill a fly!
Such a big thing had happened. As a supervisor, she could not deal with it alone.
“Your master can’t handle this?” Supervisor Xiao asked tentatively. She was also very curious about the master behind Madame Dong. It was said that she was a young Miss, but she didn’t know which family she came from. It seemed that she was not a Miss from an aristocratic family. Otherwise, it was impossible that she couldn’t deal with this kind of thing.
She had been dealing with Butterfly Clothing Shop for nearly three years, but she had never seen their mysterious master. However, she thought that she should be a Miss before, and she should be a Madam after three years. It seemed that this Madam was not married to a high official. Although the business department was not an important powerful department, it was a very profitable one.
As long as it was not a particularly powerful shop of an aristocratic family, it was possible for the goods to be deducted. It was just a sum of money. It was not a big deal!
Having known this thing, Supervisor Xiao’s smile became more sincere.
“Our master… can’t get in touch with the business department. There were several cases where the goods were deducted, but they were basically a small part. This time, our master… can’t do anything about it!” Madame Dong was very worried.
“Don’t worry, Madame Dong. I’ll ask our master for help. If we can help you deal with this matter, it will be our gratitude to you for your help in the past few years,” Supervisor Xiao said with a smile.
“If so, you will be the great benefactor of Butterfly Clothing Shop!” Madame Dong was so excited that she stood up and bowed deeply to Supervisor Xiao.
“Madame Dong, you’re so polite. It’s not decided before things get clear. I’ll go back first. As for my business, we’ll talk about it after your matter is solved!” Supervisor Xiao stood up, held Madame Dong’s hand, and said with a bright smile.
Her words were very pleasing. Madame Dong nodded repeatedly, unable to hide the excitement in her eyes.
After sending Supervisor Xiao out and returning, Shao Wanru was already sitting in the main seat. Yujie poured tea for her again.
Shao Wanru took a sip of the tea beside her and slowly put down the cup in her hand. Her long eyelashes fluttered twice, and her delicate little face was slightly raised. “Was the goods detained because of the regular course of official duties?”
Just now, when she heard that someone from Fanglan Embroidery Shop had come, she let Madame Dong deal with it like this. She had encountered a lot of business affairs in the past three years, but it was not a big deal for her to send some gifts. Shao Wanru didn’t have many people, but Chu Liuchen had, and his people acted secretly. As long as they did something, no one would baffle her.
This was also one of the critical reasons why Butterfly Clothing Shop had not encountered any major problems in the past three years and had not been deliberately put in an awkward position by any officials.
“It’s indeed a routine. If there’s nothing wrong with it, the goods will be distributed in two days!” Madame Dong reported to her.
Shao Wanru gently stroked the teacup a few times and said, “I’ll let supervisor Xiao do it. I want to see the strength of Fanglan Embroidery Shop. As for the goods, you don’t have to worry. They will naturally be solved. But they would be detained for a period of time in the near future. No matter who comes to investigate, just tell them the truth!”
At this moment, she already had an idea in her mind. She not only wanted to keep this batch of goods but also wanted to keep it strictly. She wanted to see who would help her. Who was behind Fanglan Embroidery Shop? It couldn’t be Qin Yuru. She didn’t have enough power. This embroidery room was said to be Madam Di’s dowry at the very beginning, but Madam Di didn’t manage it at all. She followed Qin Huaiyong to Jiangzhou.
Then it was added to Qin Yuru’s dowry list. But from the beginning to the end, this shop had been held in the hands of Duke Yong’s Mansion. It had never changed its owner. Not only had it never changed its owner, but also it wanted to take a sum of money from Qin’s Mansion to compensate for it.
Making money or losing money, Duke Yong’s Mansion decided it!
But it made Shao Wanru have a new question. Originally, she just wanted to check the account of this shop, but now she felt more and more that it was not what she saw on the surface.
Obviously, there was a big problem with this shop.
If Duke Yong’s Mansion coveted several shops of Madam Di, then why did they give it to Madam Di as dowry at that time? If they didn’t give it to Madam Di as dowry, they could keep it in the hands of Duke Yong’s Mansion. No matter what happened or whether they won or lost, it had nothing to do with others!
What was the situation currently?
It was not just a matter of winning or losing. It was obvious that they were hiding something. Everyone saw the decline of Duke Yong’s Mansion. Even if the people from the business department might not be able to solve this problem, how could supervisor Xiao be so confident? Why did she think this matter would succeed?
The business department was indeed not a really powerful one. For the official power, it was not worth mentioning. But for the business, it was a highly respected one. Some sons of aristocratic families would even work here, and some sons of the royal family would even manage it. How could Duke Yong’s Mansion be so confident?
She reached out and flipped through the account books on the table. The supervisor of Fanglan Embroidery Shop was indeed very confident. She put the account books here. She dared to do this before things were done. It could be seen that she felt that she would definitely be successful before she asked what the thing was.
Where did her confidence come from?
There was one thing that was certain. Duke Yong’s Mansion definitely didn’t have that much power and confidence!
“Put the account books well. You can ask someone to copy them first. You don’t have to worry about the things of the business department!” Shao Wanru stood up and reminded her again.
“Don’t worry, Miss. I know!” Madame Dong nodded in agreement. She had always been very convinced of her master’s capability. At such a young age, she could really gain a foothold in the capital city. Now her identity was even more extraordinary. How could Madame Dong not agree with her master?
Seeing that Shao Wanru wanted to leave, she hesitated for a moment and finally said, “Miss, I have another thing to tell you!”
