Wang Yao was not good at bargaining, but Zhao Yonggang was an expert at it. He kept reducing the price. However, the car still cost nearly 1 million when it was settled.
Wang Yao said nothing as he gave the deposit directly. Then, he left.
“It is so unexpected that he would actually be a buyer!” When they left, the sales assistant who served them said.
“Yes. They were very low-key about it at first!”
“Only low-key people would buy that vehicle. Look, our manager is so happy!”
“The selling volume of that vehicle has been poor recently, so of course he is happy!”
“How’re things with my sister recently?” In the car, Wang Yao asked Wang Mingbao.
“Yeah, it is okay. That guy is behaving himself.”
“Okay.” After hearing about that troublesome guy, Wang Yao had been worried about his sister.
It was nearly 4 o’clock when they were back to Lianshan; it became dark. Wang Yao made an appointment with Wang Mingbao and his friend to treat them to food when he finally had the car. Then, he rode home on his motorbike.
“What does your buddy do?” Zhao Yonggang asked curiously as he watched the shadow of Wang Yao riding far away.
“He’s a farmer, what’s up?” Wang Mingbao said.
“A farmer? Spending one million to buy a vehicle?!” Zhao Yonggang said in surprise.
“Of course he can! I would buy a BMW X5 or a Benz GLE if I had that much money. No one would buy a Touareg though, since it may be confused with Tiguan!” Zhao Yonggang said.
“My buddy likes to be low-key.”
Wang Yao went back home, and it was time for dinner. He told his parents about the purchasing of the vehicle at the dinner.
“It is about 300 thousand yuan.” Wang Yao thought his parents would think it was too expensive, so he told them a lower price.
“What? So expensive!” Zhang Xiuying said in surprise.
“Yeah. It looks good though,” Wang Yao said.
“Why do you have so much money?” Zhang Xiuying asked.
“People bought some of my herbs and I decocted several herbal medicines,” Wang Yao replied.
“You can make 300 thousand yuan from just that! But I don’t see any less of your herbs in the field?!”
“There are less. You should watch them carefully. It is just enough with the money when I sold the jujubes and the sealwort.
“So, how can we buy a house when you’ve already used some of the money?” Zhang Xiuying asked.
“I’ll have the money. I will earn some more soon when I harvest the herbs,” Wang Yao reassured.
He tried so hard to put his mother at ease. After dinner, Wang Yao quickly went up to Nanshan hill since he didn’t want to answer any more of her questions.
“Fenghua, I think he is lying to us,” Zhang Xiuying said to her husband who sipped away at some wine left on the table. “Why does he have so much money?”
“It is fine if he makes it legally,” Wang Fenghua said.
“Is he a part of a pyramid scheme? I heard that someone went to Nanshan hill recently to give him presents.”
“There are presents when engaging in a pyramid scheme? Furthermore, your son spends the whole day out on the field, so how would he be able to take part in such a thing?”
“I think there may be something!” Zhang Xiuying said.
“What are you talking about? Stop thinking too much. Give me some more rice please.” Wang Fenghua passed his bowl to his wife.
“Ah. You used to care more about our son, why have you changed recently?”
“He just does his own thing; that is fine since he is not doing anything bad.”
“You should hurry and tell Ru. Ask her for some advice,” Zhang Xiuying said.
“Woo! It’s a good thing I can confuse those troublemakers who try to hurt my field!” Wang Yao was relieved when he went to the hill; he looked at all the different kinds of medicinal herbs planted in the field.
“It seems that one lot can be harvested in advance.”
The next morning, it was bright out and Wang Yao got up early. He had a simple breakfast and then he started to work in the field. He planted the seeds that he had bought yesterday and then he watered them. Then, he went up to the top of the hill to begin his daily practice of deep breathing.
The Qi was transferred to his abdomen and then it flowed through the body like a river. Soon, one meridian would be completed. He went back down to the field and prepared to harvest the herbs planted.
Radix gentianae, radix sileris and adenophora stricta were the only herbs where the rhizome could be used as medicine. Wang Yao looked at them carefully when he dug it out. Then, he compared them to the medicinal herbs on the internet and according to his current knowledge. Hence, he could basically ensure that the herbs he planted could be harvested. They could also be sold at a high price.
He had planned to call Mr. Teng to tell him, but it had only been three months since he last came to the hill to buy sealwort. The herbs were not planted at that time, so it would be a shock to find out that a new batch of sealwort could already be harvested and ready to use as medicine in such a short time. It would be bad if that was found out by the masses.
How about I sell to others in the meantime? Wang Yao thought.
Wang Yao took the rhizome of the adenophora stricta and opened the system panel; then, he thought of something.
“Wait, can I sell to the medicine shop?”
Whoosh. Just like that the adenophora stricta was gone. Wang Yao looked and saw it in the exchange lattice; it could be exchanged for 0.1 bonus points.
It can be exchanged! The accident shocked Wang Yao and he was happy even though the price was low.
“Wait.” Wang Yao searched the medicine shop, but he found no adenophora stricta
“Why does the system not have adenophora stricta?”
Common medicine cannot be provided.
Wang Yao was not lacking in money, but he was low in bonus points. So, he harvested half of the three kinds of medicinal herbs from the herbal field and then exchanged them for bonus points.
He did not plant very much and so they could be exchanged for 50 bonus point.
Having been busy for half the day, he finally finished all this at dusk. Wang Yao read some passages from his scriptures and then he went back home to have dinner when it became dark.
Some time passed since then.
The weather in December was cold and the temperature lowered.
Wang Yao’s mother had tried to get him to stay at home for the night instead of the hill since it was so cold. However, Wang Yao rejected it. He thought that the hill was very quiet and plus, the cold meant nothing to him.
On this day, it was very cloudy.
In the village, there were visitors and their vehicles were parked in the southern village. They rushed to Nanshan hill when they got out of their cars. They walked very fast.
Hearing the barking of his dog, Wang Yao went outside and found two acquaintances, Guo Sirou and He Qisheng. They were red in the face as they jogged up the hill.
“Can you speed up the making of the herbal medicine?” Guo Sirou asked anxiously as she looked at him.
“Speed up?” Wang Yao was a little bit puzzled.
“Yes. Something happened to my grandpa. One month will be too long for him,” Guo Sirou explained.
