After Rebirth, I Am the White Moonlight of All The Big Brothers Chapter 46

Chapter 46: Jiang Han rents a shop, small stall relocates

<Previous Chapter<Table of Contents>Next Chapter>

After Li Xue’s incident, the school realized the importance of ideological education. Not only did they invite relevant personnel to hold lectures on “anti-campus violence”, but they also conducted a psychological health survey of all teachers and students.

In addition, they also established an anonymous reporting channel on the internet. Following the principle of no tolerance and serious handling, they vowed to strangle any acts of violence on campus in the cradle.

Jiang Fuyue was pleased with this development.

Those who had bullied their classmates to some extent were afraid of being reported and kept a low profile.

This included Jiang Han, Ge Meng, and Liu Sisi.

“Let me make it clear beforehand, I’m not as terrible as Li Xue, at most just threatening with my mouth.”

“Me too! Me too!” Ge Meng raised her hand. “I have no strength, I can only take a beating, really!”

Liu Sisi, on the other hand, was naturally weak and timid. She and Ge Meng were only bluffs.

Fortunately, their previous “self-improvement” had paid off, and with significant progress in this month’s exam, they received commendations. Perhaps seeing the hope for these three to change for the better, no one reported them for a time.

Jiang Han was in tears and thanked everyone for giving her a chance to start over, especially those classmates whom she had bullied before.

“I have decided to study hard from now on, strive for progress every day, and then inherit my family business!”

This time, she improved her ranking by 60 places in the monthly exam. With her dad’s wave of his hand, she was given two sets of apartments and three storefronts, one of which was located near the school.

“Hehe… Sister Yue, are you free after school today?”

Jiang Fuyue raised an eyebrow. “What’s up?”

Jiang Han vigorously nodded her head. She had been preparing for this for half a month, and was waiting for today…

When the bell rang for the end of the school day, Jiang Han rushed out of the classroom and met up with Jiang Fuyue at the back door of the school.

Ge Meng followed behind, but Liu Sisi was nowhere to be seen.

Five minutes later, the three of them stopped in front of a store. Unfortunately, the door was tightly closed and the steps in front of it were covered in dust, indicating that it had been a long time since it had been in business.

Jiang Han took out the key, swiped it, and opened the shutter door. Then she turned around and grinned at Jiang Fuyue, “Sister Yue, after you.”

Jiang Fuyue stepped inside, and Jiang Han pushed up the circuit breaker, instantly illuminating the room. Tables and chairs were neatly arranged in the hall, and the kitchen was inside, separated by a transparent glass door through which the inside situation could be clearly seen.

Jiang Fuyue’s eyebrows twitched slightly.

Jiang Han smiled and said, “This used to be a noodle shop, but it went out of business after only half a year. The owner still owed my dad two months’ rent and could only use these tables and chairs, as well as the pots, bowls, and utensils inside to settle the debt. Now it belongs to me, and I suddenly realized that it’s perfect for opening a pancake shop. Miss Yue, what do you think?”

Jiang Fuyue guessed what Jiang Han meant from her suggestive expression, but didn’t say anything.

Jiang Han’s mouth tightened, wondering if she was being too cautious.

“Cough… I’ve had Uncle’s pancakes, and they’re even more delicious than the ones I’ve had elsewhere.” Jiang Han’s words were genuine.

Initially, she went to buy pancakes because of Jiang Fuyue, but later, it was purely because she loved the taste.

She was now a loyal fan of Jiang’s pancakes and had to eat one for breakfast every day. If she was in a hurry and couldn’t go to the back door to buy one, she would run out during the long break and buy one to feel comfortable.

“…The tables, chairs, dishes, and utensils are all ready-made, the place is big, and it’s close to the school gate. If Uncle and Auntie move here, business will definitely be better than it is now!”

Jiang Fuyue had to admit that every word Jiang Han said touched on her weak spots.

“Okay, I’ll rent it.”

Jiang Han: “Huh?”

“Are you promoting the storefront? I said I will rent it.”

“No… I wasn’t planning on renting it.” 

Jiang Fuyue frowned.

Jiang Han quickly said, “What I meant is that I will lend this place to Uncle and Aunt for free, without rent.”

She knew that Jiang Fuyue’s family was not well off, so she didn’t plan on taking any money from them. Besides, the storefront was empty anyway, and her father was too lazy to deal with these things, so he never rented it out again.

It was just a favor.

But Jiang Fuyue wasn’t planning on taking a free lunch: “Either rent it or don’t rent it, you have two choices.”

Jiang Han said, “… Rent it!”

A storefront with a spacious area and good location would cost about 3,000 yuan a month. Jiang Han generously gave a 60% discount, charging only 1,800 yuan.

Jiang Fuyue rented it for six months, paid a deposit of one month’s rent and six months’ rent in advance, totaling 12,600 yuan.

“Do you have any requirements for payment? Cash or transfer?”

“No… either is fine.”

Jiang Fuyue took out her mobile phone and transferred the money to her on the spot.

Jiang Han looked surprised. Was this what they meant by “not well off”?

That evening, Jiang Fuyue told Jiang Da and his wife about the storefront.

“… Rented it?!” Jiang Da’s expression froze.

Han Yunru remained calm: “How much is the rent?”

“The storefront belongs to my classmate’s family. The rent is 1,000 yuan a month, no deposit needed. I paid six months’ rent in advance.”

“That’s still 6,000 yuan. Where did you get the money, Yue Yue?”

“The school gives us a monthly subsidy of 1,000 yuan. I paid six months in advance.”

“But isn’t it only 500 yuan?” Han Yunru frowned.

She smiled, “I also joined the physics competition class.”

The couple looked at each other.

Jiang Da said, “You keep the money for yourself, we’ll pay the rent.” He got up to get the money.

“Dad, do we really need to be so formal?”

The tall man was stunned and looked at his wife, unsure of what to do.

What did their daughter mean by that?

Was she unhappy?

What should he do?

Should he take the money or not?

With a sigh, Han Yunru realized that her daughter was a smart one while her husband was a bit slow.

“Alright, sit down. Since our daughter said so, why insist on being stubborn?”

“Okay.” Jiang Da nodded repeatedly, listening to his wife.

Jiang Fuyue looked at her beautiful mother. It was true, communication with smart people was effortless.

“However, Yue Yue,” Han Yunru touched the back of her hand, conveying a gentle force, “if you need money for school, be sure to tell your parents.”


Need money?

That was impossible.

Last time, Jiang Fuyue earned 200,000 yuan selling books at S-SA, and she only kept 50,000 yuan on hand for emergencies. The remaining 150,000 yuan was invested in the stock market.

Now it has more than doubled.

The day they moved to the new store was a Saturday.

Jiang Fuyue and Jiang Chenxing both went to help.

Before that, Jiang Da and Han Yunru had cleaned the inside and outside of the new store several times, rearranged the tables and chairs, and made some decorations.

For example, there were two one-meter-eighty-high money trees at the entrance, and lucky bamboo was placed on the cash register and air conditioner cabinets.

The walls were painted light blue, with a row of picture frames arranged high and low, dotted with dried flowers, separating the space while still looking layered and aesthetic.

Jiang Da definitely couldn’t think of these things. He only knew how to make pancake batter and flip pancakes, with no sense of aesthetics.

Han Yunru was different. She had a good eye and lots of ideas.

The potted plants and dried flowers were purchased from a nearby flower and bird market, and the picture frames were handcrafted. The total cost of all the items did not exceed 200 yuan.
