Chapter 55: Not For Sale!

Boss Liu looked at the watermelon vine leaves that were still green and glossy.
He narrowed his eyes and thought to himself, “These are all money.
These watermelons are beautiful and delicious.
They can be sold for a good price every year.
I can also earn more.”

But this year…

Boss Liu suddenly saw something.
His pupils constricted and his expression lit up.

He pointed at a figure in the field and asked curiously, “Who is that girl?”

Shi Xianlin took a look and said, “That’s Shi Lichun’s niece.
She just came to our Stoneback Village yesterday.”

“Shi Lichun’s niece?” Boss Liu was a little puzzled.
“Could it be the sister who married a rich person?”

“That’s right,” Shi said with a smile.
“This is her daughter.”

Boss Liu nodded and said, “She’s really beautiful.”

Then, he asked casually, “Looking at her age, she should be able to get married.
I wonder if she has been matchmade?”

If he introduced such a beautiful girl to those rich families, he would definitely obtain a lot of benefits.

Shi Xianlin shook his head and said, “I don’t know about that.”

boxn ovel.

Then, he thought for a moment and said, “That girl hasn’t come to her grandmother’s house for three years.
I’ve never heard Lichun say if she has a partner.”

When Boss Liu heard this, he had a plan.

Boss Liu said jokingly, “I wonder which family would benefit from such a beautiful girl.”

Of course, Shi Xianlin did not know what Boss Liu was thinking.
He smiled and replied, “Her family is so rich.
The people she married must be of equal status.”

Boss Liu had heard that Shi Lichun’s sister had married a rich man, but he had only heard about how rich she was.

To these country bumpkins, a few million was a very rich family.

The rich man that Shi Lichun’s sister married was at most a multimillionaire.

Boss Liu might not have heard of the Gu Corporation, which was one of the largest conglomerates in Sea City.

Shi Lichun’s brother-in-law was a very famous entrepreneur in Sea City.
Of course, even if he had heard of Shi Yashu, he wouldn’t have thought that she was Shi Lichun’s sister.

This was because he really did not expect Shi Lichun and his brothers to work so hard on a farm even though their sister was so rich.

Just as Boss Liu was thinking, Gu Qingming was about to go back from the field.

Just as she got up and stood in the field, she felt a sharp gaze on her.

Looking in that direction, she saw a fat middle-aged man with big ears and a bald stomach.
Gu Qingming asked her grandmother, “Grandma, who is that man?”

Grandma still had an impression of Boss Liu, who came to buy watermelons every year.

She said, “That’s Boss Liu, who’s here to collect watermelons.
Every year, he comes to our Stoneback Village to collect watermelons.
In the morning, your uncle and the others wanted to pick 20,000 catties of watermelons to sell to him.”

“Oh!” Gu Qingming nodded gently and did not ask about the man anymore.

… .

“Lichun, are you really not selling your watermelons?” Shi Xianlin turned to Boss Liu and asked, “He saw your watermelons and picked a watermelon from your field to try.
He said that he can still give you a price of 50 cents.”

Speaking of 50 cents, Shi Xianlin couldn’t tell if he was envious or jealous.

They were both planting melons, but he had to sell them for 35 cents.

However, Shi Lichun’s watermelons were well-regarded by Boss Liu, and the price was high.

Tens of thousands of catties of watermelons were thousands of dollars more.

It was already a huge profit to sell this watermelon for 50 cents per catty this year.

Shi Lichun shook his head and said, “I’m not selling them anymore.”

His niece had already found him a buyer who would be here in the afternoon.

According to his niece, if his watermelon passed the appraisal and met the quality requirements, their watermelon could be sold for at least two dollars a catty.

Of course, that would depend on the quality of their watermelons.

If the watermelons did not meet the green organic food standards, it was also possible to follow the requirements of green food without harm.
However, the price would probably be lower, at more than a dollar.

“Why not?” Shi Xianlin said in confusion, “Could it be that your niece has bought all your watermelons?”

That was very likely.

That niece’s family was so rich.
It was simply a piece of cake to buy tens of thousands of catties of watermelon.

Shi Lichun thought for a moment and shook his head.
“It’s not my niece who is buying it.
It’s her friend.
Her friend is coming over this afternoon.”

Shi Lichun couldn’t tell anyone about this.

However, Shi Xianlin had been persuading him.
He could only reveal a little now.

Shi Xianlin’s answer was expected.

Previously, he had some doubts.
Now, he was only certain.

He nodded.
“Oh, I see.”

Envy appeared in his eyes as he continued, “Sigh, your family is going to make a fortune.”

If the watermelons were really sold for one or two dollars per catty, the 50,000 to 60,000 catties of watermelons would fetch more than 100,000 dollars.
It was much more profitable than selling it for 45 cents.

If he had such a choice, perhaps he would have done the same thing as Shi Lichun.

After all, that niece would not cheat them.

At this point, Shi Xianlin did not continue persuading.

He only said, “Lichun, do bring us to riches when you have the chance.”

Other than a golden phoenix flying out of their house, the three Shi brothers were really diligent and hardworking.

They were also willing to suffer and work hard.
They had never relied on their sister to get rich.

Shi Lichun smiled and said, “How can I make a fortune? Aren’t we the same as everyone? We relied on farming and worked hard.”

Their family did have a sister who married into a rich family.
But that was marriage, not a transaction.

If they wanted to live a good life, they had to be diligent.
If one was lazy, one would never be able to live a good life.

“Boss Liu, Shi Lichun said that the melons of the brothers are not for sale now.
They can still grow in the fields.” Shi Xianlin knew how to be tactful.
He did not say right away that Shi Lichun’s family had another buyer.

“They’re not selling it now?” Boss Liu frowned and asked in confusion, “Could it be that they’re only selling them when they rot in the ground?”

Shi Xianlin laughed awkwardly and said, “Hehe, I don’t know about that.”

“Since he’s not willing to sell it now, forget it.” Boss Liu did not force it.
He continued with a disdainful expression, “Heh, when they’re willing to sell it, it won’t be at this price.”

Shi Xianlin did not reply.

He knew that Boss Liu had said that on purpose so that he could change the topic.

But he wasn’t stupid.
If he really said that, wouldn’t he offend Boss Liu?

Of course, he did not dare to offend Boss Liu on the spot.

He chuckled and said, “Hehe, Boss Liu, Shi Lichun’s watermelon will be sold in two days.”

As for who he would sell it to, he didn’t say.

Boss Liu understood.
Of course, he would sell it to him.

He was in a good mood!
