Chapter 1442: Contracting Barren Land
Bai Qingqing asked anxiously, “Hurry up and tell me. This is making me so anxious. ”
Curtis said slowly, “I didn’t have time to tell you about this in school. I came across the place by accident when I went to film the commercial. It’s near a forest. It’s not bad.”
“How did you contract it? I don’t even know about these things,” Bai Qingqing asked, perplexed.
At this moment, Muir and Winston also entered the attic. Muir said, “I asked the coach who brought me to join the compet.i.tion previously for help.”
“How much did it cost?” This was what Bai Qingqing was the most concerned about. She kept feeling that land was very expensive judging from how expensive housing was.
Curtis said, “50,000 yuan annually for 1,500 mu of barren land. We’ve signed a term for 70 years, and there’ll be a 5,000 yuan subsidy every year for the first ten years. The person who signed the contract is Muir. I’ve asked about it. They say that you aren’t of age yet and will need parental consent. Therefore, it was signed under Muir’s name.”
As there were too many rocks on that piece of land, it was difficult to be used for agriculture, and developing it would require even more money. Even though Curtis had contracted it for tourism activities, as the place was more remote and there wasn’t a tourism chain there, the price was very cheap.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. It was fine as long as they could afford to contract the land. “Since it’s near a forest, it should be easy for you guys to enter, right?”
She had misunderstood Curtis. Not only had he signed Muir under an entertainment company, but he had also signed the rights of the land to him.
Curtis smiled, clearly very satisfied. “En.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “That’s good, then. Is there a contract or something? Let me take a look.”
Curtis said, “The contract isn’t ready yet. You don’t have to bother about this matter. I’m no longer the snake beastman that first arrived in this world.”
He looked at Muir, then said to her, “I received several hundred thousand yuan for my last commercial. It’s just enough to pay the fees for the contracted land for the first few years. We’ll need to use Muir’s money for building the zoo.”
“It’s fine as long as Muir is agreeable to it,” Bai Qingqing said.
“I’ll listen to you,” Muir quickly said. “But I also look forward to it.”
Bai Qingqing hadn’t been through such a big matter before and felt pressured. Seeing how composed Curtis was, she decided to wash her hands off it and said, “Alright, then. I’ll leave it all to you.”
“Alright,” Curtis replied gently.
Broke to the extent that even eating was a problem, Parker and Winston didn’t say anything. They suddenly felt that their status in the family was very low.
Parker broke the box with a few scratches, taking out a wilted-yellow-colored big bird nest.
He let out a surprised “hmmm”, saying, “This is really good. I want one, too.”
The bird nest was woven from fine vines. It was very soft and comfortable.
Although it looked messy, it had a complicated structure that still made it look exquisite. From afar, it looked like an ordinary bird nest, but from up close, it looked very clean without any impurities. Looking just like a decorative piece made from dried gra.s.s, it was pleasing to the eye.
Curtis and Winston’s eyes lit up. They were used to sleeping in gra.s.s nests and felt a natural sense of amicability to such a primitive nest.
Muir immediately s.n.a.t.c.hed the nest and put it on the tree fork. “This one is mine.”
Bai Qingqing’s lips twitched and she suggested, “Why don’t… we buy a few more?”
Curtis immediately said, “I want a bigger one.”
Parker also said, “Me, too. I want a big one so that I can sleep with you.”
Winston said, “We used to sleep together as a group of three.”
Bai Qingqing was speechless. This meant that he wanted an even bigger one.
“I feel that they won’t be able to fulfill your requirements. Why don’t we buy a bunch of materials and make them ourselves?” Bai Qingqing asked.
The males all felt that this was feasible. Therefore, Bai Qingqing was caught between laughter and tears as she contacted the seller and purchased a large amount of raw materials.
