Watching from the side, Hu Sande couldn’t tell whether Su Tang was satisfied with the farm or not, but he didn’t ask anything. Seeing that she seemed to be done with her inspection, he said: “Have you finished taking a look, Miss Su? Then let’s go ahead and head over to the Yang Farm now!”
Su Tang nodded and took the lead in getting back into her carriage. Butler Zhang said a few more words to Zhou Qian and then followed Hu Sande to also get into their carriage. Once they were inside, he asked, “Old Hu, be honest with me. What is that Miss Su thinking about?”
Butler Zhang really couldn’t understand what Su Tang was thinking about this time, so he could only ask Hu Sande. After all, the size of the Zhou Farm was just too large, so the price was exorbitant, and on top of that, it was in such an awkward location, so it had always been very difficult to sell. It was very rare that a buyer would show any interest like today, so Butler Zhang had already been given firm instructions to sell the farm by any means.
However, this Miss Su didn’t seem to love or hate the farm, and her face was near impossible to read. Thus, Butler Zhang was naturally anxious to ask Hu Sande for some insight into her thoughts.
Hu Sande had been working as a broker for a long time, and this wasn’t the first potential buyer he had introduced to the Zhang family, so he could be said to be somewhat familiar with Butler Zhang. However, hearing this question, Hu Sande could only shake his head and reply: “I can’t see through her thoughts either. But don’t worry, now that she’s done her inspection I’m sure I’ll be able to feel out her thoughts once we get back tonight.”
Butler Zhang still hesitated, “Are you sure she can really afford to buy one of our farms? She isn’t trying to cheat us, is she?”
“Please rest assured that Miss Su really wants to buy some farmland this time. Also, as you know, this is not a business of one or two silver taels, so even if she really wants to buy it’s normal for her to inspect and ponder for a while.”
Hu Sande’s words calmed Butler Zhang down a little. In fact, when Su Tang had told Hu Sande that her budget was 5000 silver taels, he had been a little doubtful since, after all, she was just a little girl. In order to make sure there were no accidents, Hu Sande had asked Su Tang to show him some proof of her ability to pay, and she had directly shown him a box with 100 gold taels inside of it.
Of course, it was normal in this business for the broker to confirm that the buyer had the ability to pay before contacting the sellers and arranging for the two parties to meet. Otherwise, if the broker really introduced some sort of scammer to a seller, then he wouldn’t be able to escape from sharing some of the blame.
Seeing that Hu Sande was so confident, Butler Zhang didn’t say anything more and just quietly waited to arrive at the Yang Farm.
Meanwhile, in Su Tang’s carriage, she was communicating with the orange cat. ‘So, what do you think?’
‘Time was a bit too tight, so I could only lightly read the hearts of two people. From what I saw, two of the five families have some minor problems, but the others are all more or less good. But I will still need to look more carefully into the details before I can judge.’ The orange cat directly reported his findings.
In fact, the orange cat had the ability to read the hearts of humans, but at present, his ability was still weak. He couldn’t directly read minds, rather, he could only get a general feeling. Knowing this, Su Tang had sent him to take a look at the farmers at the Zhou Farm. After all, if they could be used, it would save her a lot of effort.
‘Mm, that’s good enough for now, but make sure to have a look around the Yang Farm too when we arrive. From what I can tell, that Zhou Farm seems pretty good and meets my requirements. Qingshui Town isn’t too far from Qinghe Town and the Qingyuan County Seat, and it should be very convenient to build a factory there.’
Su Tang really felt that the Zhou Farm was pretty good, which was why she had the orange cat take a look at the farmers there to see if they could be used. If they were useable, she would use them, but if not she would just let their previous masters deal with them. Even if she only bought the land itself, she could still think of her own way.
If most of them were useable, then they could stay. Although it would be a little more expensive to buy them along with the land, it would at least save her a lot of effort.
‘Remember to make me some fish balls!’ Hearing Su Tang assigning even more work for him, the orange cat quickly countered with a request.
Su Tang rolled her eyes. This foodie cat!
‘Alright, if you do well, I’ll also make some fried fish too!’ She replied.
Hearing Su Tang volunteering to make him fried fish as well, the orange cat was so happy his whiskers twitched and his tail swayed back and forth. ‘Thank you! Master, you are the kindest master in the world.’
Internally, the orange cat sighed. It seemed that ever since he had discovered the dark nature of his master this time, he had somehow contracted the habits of blowing rainbow farts and acting like a lackey.
