In the end, Su Tang had been worn down by this spoiled little devil and just helplessly told her she could take the dish away.
As a matter of fact, it wasn’t like Su Tang didn’t want to sell more. She was a businesswoman after all, so how could she have any complaints about making more money? However, the small dishes she used to bake the cupcakes in cost two copper coins each.
If she had directly sold the dish and the product together, then the price of each cupcake would have to rise by two copper coins. Even though it was “only” two copper coins, asking fifteen copper coins for a single small cupcake was already very expensive in the eyes of many people, so she had estimated that even more people would accuse her of running a shady business if the price was another two copper coins higher on top of that.
She was also taking into consideration the fact that she had looked ahead and seen that once her space leveled up to level 30 a supermarket would open. She knew that if this mysterious supermarket feature also included ready-made paper cups for cupcakes then it would be able to save her a lot of headache, but for now she could only wait until it was open to see.
She had even thought up this deposit-return plan while she was planning the cafe but, in the end, she had given up on it. Mostly she had given it up because she felt that it was pretty likely that the dishes wouldn’t be returned after they were taken away or, even if they were returned, she would have no way of know when they would be returned, which would make it difficult to plan around.
After all, if the dishes were out and hadn’t come back, she would end up buying more to replace them, and then if the dishes came back after that, she would have extra dishes after taking them back. All in all, it seemed very troublesome given the circumstances.
So in the end Su Tang decided to simply set a rule that they couldn’t leave the shop in order to save herself a lot of headaches. However, since Lu Wan’er was pressing her like this, Su Tang couldn’t just say no, and she reluctantly brought out the plan that she had discarded before.
When Lu Wan’er heard Su Tang finally agree, she immediately reached out and grabbed her arm like they were close friends and smiled happily. “Thank you, good little sister, I knew you were the best. Also, can I have another pot of milk tea so my grandmother can have some together with the cupcakes? I’ll give you a deposit for the teapot as well.”
Su Tang finally couldn’t bear hearing this ‘good little sister’ anymore and said dryly: “The deposit for the teapot is five copper coins and, young miss, please don’t call me ‘good little sister’.”
If she had known that this person was secretly a spoiled little devil, Su Tang wouldn’t have tried to get closer to her in the first place. She didn’t have a lot of patience for these kinds of touchy-feely people who liked to act overly close with people they had just met. Even when it came to her good friends Su Tang was the type to keep a little distance.
So Lu Wan’er’s overly enthusiastic and familiar personality was pretty much dead opposite of the type that Su Tang liked, and Su Tang really didn’t like handling this type of person at all.
Su Tang had only spoken up because she, an adult, felt it was too creepy to be called ‘good little sister’ over and over by a small girl, but unexpectedly Lu Wan’er nodded her head and said: “En, you’re right, I don’t know your name yet. My name is Lu Wan’er, but you can just call me Wan’er. We will be friends in the future, okay? And whenever you cook something new and delicious, you can find me first to let me taste it.”
There it was. After saying so much, it turned out this spoiled little devil was still just a foodie who had been waiting for the right opportunity to say this line!
Su Tang felt speechless and, on the side, the orange cat had finished his milk tea and laughed heartlessly when he saw his master being pestered, ‘Hehe, she’s so ‘passionate’ master!’
It was obvious at a glance that Su Tang really couldn’t stand this sort of ‘passionate’ person but the orange cat had said that deliberately to annoy her. SuTang looked over at the gloating feline and shot back, ‘Well, it seems you have no need for dessert tomorrow.’
The orange cat’s whiskers drooped and he instantly shut up. Seeing that, Su Tang sneered in her heart. This cat, did he really think that she, a human, couldn’t clean him up?
That matter settled, she returned her attention to Lu Wan’er. She sighed. Now that she had already taken the initiative to attract this little devil, what else could Su Tang do? She could only acknowledge her and respond, “My name is Su Tang.”
“Then I’ll call you TangTang. Your cooking is really delicious TangTang. I’ll go back and ask my best friends Zhuo’er and them to come over and eat as well, okay? What do you think? If you make something delicious in the future, you can give it to me first, right?”
Lu Wan’er pulled on Su Tang’s sleeve and looked up at her, her big round eyes blinking expectantly.
Su Tang wanted to ask: That best friend of yours, does she know that she’s been sold by you?
Last time she met the foodie called Luo Xingchen and now, unexpectedly, she seemed to have provoked another foodie again. What could she do? She was also feeling very desperate, ah.
