Hearing Shi Qingluo’s description, one could not help but feel a sense of yearning.
“If we can really make this county rich, we’ll definitely feel a great sense of achievement,” Xi Rui said with a smile.
“Qingluo, count me in, I’ll also do my part.”
His grandfather had said that if he didn’t do anything at the northern border, he wouldn’t let him go back.
Since he couldn’t return to the capital in this short period of time, it was better for him to follow Shi Qingluo and her husband.
This was something he had never tried since he was born, and it sounded quite interesting.
“Don’t forget about me,” Liang Youxiao said with a smile.
“By the way, you’re benefiting the people here by opening a workshop, so it’s not counted if I am the one who opens it, right?
“Why don’t I try opening two workshops here?”
Shi Qingluo laughed and said, “This is good! When the time comes, I’ll get old Xiao to help you get in through the back door.”
In order for an under-developed community to progress, it was necessary to attract investment with policies to encourage certain behaviors.
The rich Liang Youxiao was her young husband’s target.
She didn’t expect that just by thinking about it, she would be able to find a rich man for her little husband.
She would let him serve her well when she went back tonight, hehe.
“Then, should I open a rouge shop here as well?” Xi Rong said with a smile.
“However, I don’t know if there will be customers here. The locals don’t seem to be able to afford it, but the foreign merchants can buy it right here.
“Let’s not target the merchants from Daliang. We can target Persians, Arab and western merchants.” Shi Qingluo said with a smile.
“The powder, lipstick, and incense that we are selling don’t exist there. They’ll definitely be interested.”
Xi Rong nodded. “It’s settled then. I’ll open a rouge workshop that focuses on selling these.”
In the past, they were the ones who bought rare items from the west and other places at a high price.
Now, they were getting the merchants to bring their things back to sell.
Hearing their words, Xi Rui couldn’t sit still. “Then what workshop should I open? ”
He had brought tens of thousands of taels of silver with him this time, more than enough to open a workshop.
“Qingluo, quickly help me come up with an idea. When the time comes, I’ll give you a share of my workshop.”
Shi Qingluo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “There’s no need to rush. Let’s get to know more about Heyang County first. We’ll decide what to do after we see what special local products there are.”
It was better to act according to the local conditions.
Xi Rui was full of energy. “Alright, let’s go and find out more in the next few days.”
Liang Youxiao had always been interested in business and had always wanted to expand his business.
He suddenly felt that this was an opportunity. “Yes, let’s do it!”
In the next few days, Xiao Hanzheng went to the county office to look through the accounts of the past year, while Shi Qingluo and the other two wandered around the county and even rode a carriage to a few nearby villages.
Then, when they came back, they went to the county government office to ask Xiao Hanzheng to return to the inn together.
Suddenly, they noticed a group of people in the inn.
It was Fei Yuzhe, whom they had hung out with previously.
Fei Yuzhe looked exhausted.
The journey, which should have taken more than a month, took him more than twenty days on horseback with his guards and servant boys.
Liang Youxiao was stunned. “Old Fei, what are you doing here? ”
“Nonsense!” Fei Yuzhe laughed.
“You guys came all the way here. How could I not come? ”
His grandfather had arranged an official position for him in the Ministry of Revenue, and he had been there for half a month, but it was not exciting.
Especially after Xiao Hanzheng left with Liang Youxiao and the others, he suddenly felt that the capital was boring.
So, he went to beg the old master, resigned from his position in the Ministry of Revenue, and came to the northern border with his people to seek shelter with Xiao Hanzheng.
Liang Youxiao walked over and gave Fei Yuzhe a light punch. “You’re a true brother.”
Xi Rui also smiled and wrapped his arms around Fei Yuzhe’s neck. “Old Fei, you made the right move.
“As brothers, we will do a great thing here and when we return, we will be so glaring that we blind the eyes of those dogs in the capital who look down on us.”
Shi Qingluo stepped forward with a smile. “Old Fei, welcome, welcome!”
Xiao Hanzheng saw the smile in Fei Yuzhe’s eyes deepen. “Old Fei, you came at the right time.”
Eldest Grandson Xiao’s communication skills were not bad, but he was a little annoying when it came to handling official business.
The other people in the county office were also just dawling.
The previous registrar was one of the ex-county magistrate’s men, who had been thrown into prison by Eldest Grandson Xiao.
Xiao Hanzheng was still worried that no one could help him.
He could not handle all the work alone.
He did not expect Fei Yuzhe to come.
When Fei Yuzhe saw everyone’s surprised and welcoming looks, his tired face was swept away. “Alright, let’s do something together.
“In the future, when we go back, we’ll slap the faces of those people who once laughed at us.”
For some reason, he always felt that coming to the northern border to rely on Xiao Hanzheng was more promising than staying in the Ministry of Revenue.
His cousins of the same generation, and even his uncles, all thought that he was crazy, and they kept trying to persuade him.
However, he was still firm in his decision.
Fortunately, his grandfather supported him in the end.
Otherwise, it would not have been easy for him to come here.
Before he came to the northern border, many people in the capital had laughed at them.
He was also holding back his anger now.
When he returned, he hoped that he could give those people a good slap in the face.
“Their faces must be slapped.”
Liang Youxiao had the best relationship with Fei Yuzhe, so he smiled and said after sitting down, ” “We’ve been discussing how to stir up trouble these past few days.”
She told him about the three of them wanting to open a workshop.
Fei Yuzhe shook his head. “I’m not interested in opening a workshop.”
He had never been interested in these things.
Xiao Hanzheng invited him with a smile. “The county office still lacks an official registrar. I think you’ll be interested.”
“It seems like old Xiao knows me best,” Fei Yuzhe chuckled.
He had come to seek refuge with Xiao Hanzheng and at the same time, he wanted to train his ability.
Being a county registrar was a good starting point.
A registrar official was a ninth-ranked official.
Although it wasn’t as high as his eighth-ranked official in the Ministry of Revenue, it was easier for him to be promoted.
Thinking of this, he was motivated.
Liang Youxiao spent some money to get the restaurant’s owner to buy some meat and vegetables.
So that they could have a good drink that night.
The few of them were drinking and chatting at an restaurant in a foreign land, discussing how to go all out.
Each and every one of them seemed to be full of energy.
At the northern city’s Deputy Governor’s Office.
Those people left by Ge Chunru’s father had received a piece of news.
They got a servant girl to deliver it to her.
When she heard that her brother had not only married an old woman at the mine, but that woman was also Shi Qingluo’s mother, Ge Chunru had a look of disbelief.
“This is just a rumor, right?” She didn’t want to believe that it was true.
Recently, she had been inquiring about many girls from the aristocratic families in the northern city, thinking that when she brought her brother back from the mine, she would make a good marriage for him.
When she had asked someone to bring silver for her brother, she had also written this in the letter.
But why was the content of the news like this? It’s impossible for her younger brother to marry Mdm Niu.
“Madam”, the servant girl replied carefully, “They have investigated this matter. Young Master Ge and Mdm Niu have even gotten married at the mine.”
Ge Chunru was so angry that her eyes turned black and she almost fainted.
When she got back her senses, she was so angry that she smashed the teacup in her hand on the ground.
It must be that shameless b * tch Mdm Niu who deceived Chunyi.
“I’m going to find Xiao Yuanshi.”
No, she wouldn’t allow such a thing to happen.
She had to go to the mine immediately to get her brother out.
