The Chi Yu Lou owner has spoken so the elders can only suppress the words in their hearts.
“It’s easier to say than to do. Suddenly asking for a change, how can this be easy?”
“Yes, it’s not that easy to change, let alone asking the Chi Yu Lou to change its main business. Please think twice about it!”
“Also asking the owner to think twice!”
The rest of the people also followed.
Wen Qi Qi knew that it would not be that easy to achieve certain things, and she did not expect them to accept it immediately, so she did not say anything else. She said to Wen Ting Xuan, “Has Second Brother eaten enough? If you’re full, take me to the Chi Yu Lou to have a look.”
“Good.” Wen Ting Xuan immediately agreed and said towards the elders, “Do the elders want to follow this seat back to the Chi Yu Lou, or continue talking here?”
Several elders smiled and immediately got up, “Naturally, we are going back to the Chi Yu Lou with the owner.”
The reason they are waiting here today is to welcome the owner. Since the owner wants to go to the Chi Yu Lou, they naturally want to follow.
When they arrived at the place, Wen Qi Qi realized that the Chi Yu Lou was actually located in the red light district. (TN: The spicy district with brothels, etc.)
She looked questioningly at Wen Ting Xuan.
Wen Ting Xuan explained in a low voice: “Chi Yu Lou is a killing business after all, and it is not possible to eradicate the grass and roots for in every task. There are bound to be fish that slip through the net, and in order to avoid being pursued by those people for revenge, the place where Chi Yu Lou is located is very secretive and cannot be found by ordinary people.” (TN: eradicate grass and roots mean to slaughter everything and everyone so they can’t come and get revenge)
Wen Qi Qi suddenly realized.
It turns out that the Chi Yu Lou will also be afraid of revenge ah. So their stronghold was chosen in such a place. Using the brothel as a cover, it is indeed difficult for people to find.
The group of people entered a ladies’ establishment called the Hundred Flowers Pavilion. Then, from the backyard of the Hundred Flowers Pavilion, they entered the Red Feather Mansion.
“So this Hundred Flowers Pavilion, is also the property of the Chi Yu Lou?” Wen Qi Qi looked back in the direction of Hundred Flowers Pavilion and asked in a low voice.
“Yes.” Wen Ting Xuan nodded her head.
Wen Qi Qi smiled, and a plan was born in her heart.
Seeing her thoughtful appearance, Wen Ting Xuan knew she must have had another idea, so he asked, “What is it?
Wen Qi Qi nodded her head and crooked her finger at him.
Wen Ting Xuan had to lower her head.
Wen Qi Qi whispered to him for a while.
After listening, Wen Ting Xuan looked at her in surprise, but then cried and laughed a little.
“You won’t even let go of a place like the Hundred Flowers Pavilion?”
“Since there is a ready-made place, why not make use of it? I believe that the elders are still interested in silver.” When Wen Qi Qi said this, she deliberately raised her voice.
Those elders had their ears open to listen to their movements, so they naturally did not miss what she said.
When the elders heard the word silver, their eyes really twinkled.
Although they are a big establishment, but after so many years of squandering, the silver is almost used up. In addition, the income is not enough to cover the expenses, in fact, they are very frugal, and only rely on their reputation to support themselves.
“I wonder what you want to do with the Hundred Flowers Pavilion?” One of the more lively elders immediately asked.
“Naturally, it is to earn silver.” Wen Qi Qi said in a relaxed tone.
The rest of the elders smiled and immediately became interested, “Does Gongzi have any method to earn silver?”
“Naturally, there are many ways to earn silver, depending on whether the elders are willing to give me the opportunity to play?” Wen Qi Qi said indifferently.
Several elders’ eyes lit up, “Gongzi can talk about it first.”
