Chapter 910 Make Trouble in Her Own Shop!
Supervisor Xiao invited Madame Dong to Fanglan Embroidery Shop and showed her the account books with the records of the money the shop had earned over the years. She asked Madame Dong to rest assured and promised that they would return the money soon.
To win Madame Dong’s further trust, Supervisor Xiao showed her around Fanglan Embroidery Shop so that she could see its daily operation and the number of its customers. At the same time, Supervisor Xiao analyzed the location of the shop and showed her how good it was! Fanglan Embroidery Shop was surrounded by many partner shops which could support it a lot.
Madame Dong was quite satisfied with what was shown to her and then left.
However, Supervisor Xiao didn’t expect that one of those secret account books was taken and sent to Qin Yuru when she was seeing off Madame Dong.
This set of true account books was undeclared. However, to cope with Madame Dong today, Supervisor Xiao specially took out the box that contained this set of account books in front of Madame Dong and casually chose several ones to show her without any caution.
Of course, it was to convince Madame Dong.
After reading Madame Dong’s letter, Shao Wanru smiled slightly. “At this point, I’ll wait and see what will happen…”
Qin Yuru came to Fanglan Embroidery Shop with not only her two principal maids Mei Xue and Meiyan but also a group of servant girls and old maids. All of them headed to the accountant’s office with open hostility!
“Who are you? Ah…” A shop boy came up to stop them, but he was fiercely pushed aside by an old maid in the front.
“How dare you! This is…” Another shop boy came up to stop them but was also pushed aside. Unfortunately, he bumped into a few female guests.
The two delicate young ladies and their servant girls were almost knocked to the counter. They were so frightened that they screamed one after another.
Supervisor Xiao was sorting through the account books in the accountant’s office. She had done it twice because she felt something wrong. One of the account books was missing, but she couldn’t remember where she had lost it.
“Madame Dong couldn’t take it, as I followed her all the time and immediately came back after she left. But why is the book missing?”
Supervisor Xiao put down the box of account books in her hands and went to search the other box with fake account books, which were put in the accountant’s office all the time. Even if Fanglan Embroidery Shop was inspected, only these false account books would be checked. Anyway, Fanglan Embroidery Shop always claimed that they were at a loss, and even the shop boys said so.
Supervisor Xiao opened the box, started to check the dates on them while counting those books and then piled them up neatly. They were exactly the false account books of a year, no more and no less!
But one of the true account books was indeed missing. And it was one of the last year’s.
The two boxes of account books were opened. Supervisor Xiao stood in the middle and frowned tightly. She tried hard to recall what had happened after she opened the box. “When did I lose it? Where might it be put…”
“Supervisor Xiao, bad news! Some people are breaking in!” a shop boy rushed into the accountant’s office and said to Supervisor Xiao anxiously.
“Which mansion are they from?” Supervisor Xiao was stunned. Such a thing had never happened before. Even a dissatisfied customer would never break in without saying a word like that.
She had been in charge of Fanglan Embroidery Shop for so many years, but she had never encountered such a thing.
“I don’t know which mansion they are from! Supervisor Xiao, you’d better go and have a look. The leader seems to be a madam and she is so hostile!” The shop boy was a sharp-eyed person. He could tell Qin Yuru was the head of the group at the first glance. But he didn’t know Qin Yuru was his nominal boss.
“Ridiculous! The capital is ruled by law!” Supervisor Xiao became furious.
She was not afraid that someone made the trouble. She walked out immediately.
When she arrived outside and saw Qin Yuru with a group of people, Supervisor Xiao was shocked. Others might not know Qin Yuru, but she did.
Supervisor Xiao often went to Duke Yong’s Mansion to check the account with Countess Yong. Once the latter’s servant girl pointed to Qin Yuru from a distance and asked Supervisor Xiao to be careful of her, who was the nominal owner of Fanglan Embroidery Shop.
Supervisor Xiao turned around and wanted to leave because she remembered that she hadn’t packed up the true account books yet!
“Stop her!” Qin Yuru said harshly. She also saw Supervisor Xiao and knew that she was the supervisor of Fanglan Embroidery Shop, for she looked different from those ordinary workers and she was surrounded by several shop boys.
Qin Yuru was not exalted in Duke Yong’s Mansion, but those strong old maids and servant girls followed her orders to come here with her after being rewarded with lots of money. They didn’t know what had happened before, and they were told by Mei Xue that Qin Yuru was deceived by this shop, whose people changed the good clothes she ordered into a set made of cheap clothing.
And the shop happened to be Qin Yuru’s dowry.
Qin Yuru had always been domineering, even though she had a hard time in Duke Yong’s Mansion. She would beat someone to death when she got angry!
Even Countess Yong couldn’t do anything to her since she was under Old Madam’s protection.
This time, Qin Yuru said she was going to smash her shop because the supervisor of the shop fooled her. She must teach the supervisor a lesson! Therefore, she needed a group of people in the mansion to go with her. On hearing her order, they should start to beat the supervisor. The more they beat her, the more rewards they would get!
Since it was the shop of the Princess, and it was her order, none of them didn’t wish to flatter her to get more rewards.
On hearing Qin Yuru’s words, several servant girls and old maids immediately rushed to grabbed Supervisor Xiao tightly.
A shop boy realized that the situation was not good, so he rushed out. “It seems that Supervisor Xiao can’t handle it alone. I have to report to Duke Yong’s Mansion.”
“Who… who are you? Why do you catch me?” Supervisor Xiao struggled and winked at one of her trusted shop boys.
The account books in the accountant’s office were the most dangerous. They must be hidden as soon as possible.
Her henchman was a smart man. When he saw Supervisor Xiao’s wink, he remembered those secret account books. “I have to go to hide them now!” Then he took a few steps back and was about to leave.
Qin Yuru was smart now. She immediately waved her hand, ordering her people to catch the fleeing shop boy. Then Mei Xue, Meiyan, together with a group of servant girls and old maids, rushed to the accountant’s office of which Supervisor Xiao just walked out.
Qin Yuru came here today to get the two sets of account books on the spot.
“Madam, please stop your people! This is Fanglan Embroidery Shop, a place where no one can’t make any trouble!” Supervisor Xiao shouted in a sharp voice and struggled hard.
Helpless, she was forced by several servant girls and old maids to kneel in front of Qin Yuru.
An old maid flattered Qin Yuru and brought her a chair. Qin Yuru sat down on it, looked at Supervisor Xiao coldly, and asked, “Don’t you know me?”
“Madam, you must be joking. I’m just a supervisor. How can I know you?” Supervisor Xiao was in a panic and dare not admit that she knew Qin Yuru. She still couldn’t figure out what Qin Yuru wanted to do.
Even if Qin Yuyu wanted to check the account, she just needed to politely show her purpose when she sent someone here or came by herself. Why was she so hostile? No one would like to see this! Supervisor Xiao only hoped that she could delay it as long as possible and it would be best if she could do it until Countess Yong came.
“Don’t you know me?” Qin Yuru sneered.
Before Qin Yuru met Supervisor Xiao, she didn’t remember her. But now when she saw Supervisor Xiao’s face, Qin Yuru recalled a faint memory. She had seen Supervisor Xiao in Duke Yong’s Mansion. The last time was before the Spring Festival. At that time, Supervisor Xiao should have gone there to report the account.
However, this kind of thing had nothing to do with Qin Yuru in the past, so she didn’t care about it at that time. She just glanced at her from a distance and didn’t ask much about her.
Now thinking about it, she remembered she had seen this supervisor several times. She just didn’t care about her before. Thinking that her shop that could have made lots of money was occupied by Countess Yong, Madam Shi, Qin Yuru believed that this supervisor must have helped a lot.
So Qin Yuru became angrier.
“Slap her!” she ordered in a harsh tone.
An old maid immediately came over and slapped Supervisor Xiao hard ten times. While slapping her, the old maid scolded, “Open your dog eyes and take a look. This is the Princess of our mansion, the master of your shop. How dare you say that you don’t know her?”
“She is the owner of this shop?”
The staff could not help holding their breath. They had thought that Qin Yuru was a rude and unreasonable madam of another mansion. But after hearing that she was from their mansion, they started to feel that she wasn’t that rude anymore. “Supervisor Xiao must have made a huge mistake and offended the Princess. Otherwise, she would not be punished like this.”
However, the Princess had done a little over. It might be hard to end it. Even if it ended, others would discuss her, the Princess of Duke Yong’s Mansion. Anyway, some gossip was easy for the speaker’s mouth but hard for the listener’s ears.
The old maid finished slapping Supervisor Xiao, whose face swelled up. And a stream of blood flowed from the corner of her mouth.
“Yes, this is our Princess! She is your boss too! This shop is her dowry, and she has always trusted you. She didn’t expect that you made false accounts and even pretended that you didn’t know her. You will be sent to the local authorities. With the accusation of stealing the property of your boss for so many years, you and your family will deserve to be exiled to the frontier and can’t come back again!”
A clever servant girl saw that Qin Yuru’s two principal maids were not here, so she took a step forward, stood beside Qin Yuru, and scolded Supervisor Xiao like that.
Hearing her words, the onlookers started another discussion and they all gossiped about Supervisor Xiao. “How unexpected that the supervisor, who looks very honest, is such a person! If she indeed has committed those crimes, not only would Supervisor Xiao herself be punished, but also her family would be implicated.”
“Madam, it has nothing to do with me! It…” Supervisor Xiao was frightened by the servant girl’s words, with her forehead covered with sweat. She hurriedly explained, “It has nothing to do with me. It’s… it’s Countess Yong’s idea…”
