Chapter 1621: Former Love Rival
People tended to be less resistant towards a good-looking person of the opposite s.e.x. Upon hearing this, the girl readily replied, “Alright, then. I’ll take this one.”
Just like that, the first business transaction was completed.
After collecting the money, Mu Ya and Shen Yin’s eyes met and they smiled.
It was rather busy in the shop, with people squeezing against each other everywhere. Mu Ya kept a watch at the entrance in case someone wanted to steal something. He even took the time to write a sign on paper and placed it on the table: Fixed Prices, No Bargaining.
After that, no one tried to bargain anymore, and Shen Yin could complete the business transactions on her own.
As students were in a rush to get home, they came and went quickly. In a little more than an hour, not many students could be seen on the streets. Mu Ya did a stock count and found out that they had sold a total of 200 plus bonsais of all sizes. This little business was actually quite profitable.
However, after the students left, there weren’t any customers. Such brisk business would only be seen twice a week when the students went to and came out of the school.
Shen Yin kept an eye at the entrance, while Mu Ya was busy carrying goods from the storeroom. At this time, a few girls entered the florist shop. Moreover, one of them was one of the rare few people Shen Yin knew, because they used to be “love rivals” in a sense.
w.a.n.g Muxi didn’t recognize her immediately and only felt that the boss was young. After casting a few more glances at her, she recognized her indifferent demeanor and remembered this person called “Shen Yin”.
“How come it’s you? Didn’t you blind your father and was expelled from school? Where did you get the money to open a shop at our school entrance?” w.a.n.g Muxi was truly shocked. However, her tone made it difficult for others to answer her.
Moreover, Shen Yin was introverted, to begin with, so she completely ignored her.
Since she didn’t get an answer, w.a.n.g Muxi felt bored and casually looked around in the shop, touching this bonsai and playing with that bonsai, without any intention of buying anything.
Mu Ya carried a bonsai out and glanced at those few girls before ignoring them and placing the goods on the shelves.
“Mu Ya?” w.a.n.g Muxi was astounded for a second time, her gaze s.h.i.+fting between him and Shen Yin. “You two…”
The duo simply ignored her. After placing the potted plants on the shelves, Mu Ya walked to Shen Yin’s side and bent over to stroke the baby eagle in her arms.
“Your hand is so chilly. You should go in to rest,” said Mu Ya.
Shen Yin shook her head. “I’m not cold.”
The two of them spoke as if no one was around them, their interaction more intimate and natural than lovers’, as though they were a loving married couple who had been by each other’s side for many years.
w.a.n.g Muxi stared at them dazedly for a while and was suddenly seized by jealousy. She had had no less than five boyfriends. Yet, she had never been as close to any of them before.
Was Mu Ya the one who opened this florist shop? Since Shen Yin was working in his family’s shop after she dropped out of school, did that mean that they had already confirmed their relations.h.i.+p in front of his family?
Too early! Nonetheless, highly enviable! Especially since Mu Ya was so handsome, so cool, and came from such a wealthy family.
If she had known, she would have persisted a bit longer back then.
“Hey!” w.a.n.g Muxi suddenly called out.
This finally attracted others’ attention. Mu Ya and Shen Yin both looked over.
w.a.n.g Muxi randomly picked up a pot of succulent plant and said, “Why is no one tending to the customers? How much is this?”
Mu Ya said in a flat tone, “The prices are labeled.”
w.a.n.g Muxi cast a casual glance and didn’t know what to say, so she walked over with the bonsai and said, “I’m buying this.”
Her companions were quite shocked. After they exited the florist shop, they tugged at w.a.n.g Muxi.
“You really bought it? This is very expensive. Will you still have any allowance left to go out on a date with your boyfriend tomorrow?”
w.a.n.g Muxi rolled her eyes at that companion. “Of course he’ll be the one paying. If I need to pay for myself, I’d long have dumped him!”
Her companions chuckled. “Yeah, you’re right.”
The trio chatted and laughed as they walked into the distance, as though the shop they had just visited was merely ordinary.
