I Am A Gourmet: Just Eight And You Want Me To Start A Roadside Stall? - Chapter 70
Chapter 70: The School Belle Joining InAfter selling the cake that they could not finish, Xu Le looked at his payment transaction.
Not only did he earn enough to cover the entry cost for the three of them, he also earned five to six hundred more.
In his heart, he suddenly felt that as long as the ratio in the desserts was accurate and he had some experience, he would be able to make the desserts very well.
For his branch store, since the system was the one paying for it, he could choose the bigger ones and even sell some desserts.
As he was thinking about this, he suddenly heard an uneasy voice behind him.
I’m the boss here.
Are you eight years old?” “Ah?” Xu Le was stumped by this baffling question.
He smiled and said, “I am indeed eight years old.
” “Haha, that’s not what I meant.
I’ve watched your live stream.
You’re super awesome, little Master Chef!” The boss excitedly bent down to shake hands with him.
“I’m your fan, and I even followed you online.
I like every single video of you.
Little Master Chef, you have to update more in the future! It’s totally not enough to watch!” It was Xu Le’s first time meeting his fans.
The boss was nervous and excited.
He took out a pen and paper, hoping that he would get Xu Le’s autograph.
When he handed it over, he asked, “Do you know how to write?” After all, he looked so young and his culinary skills were superb.
He must have spent most of his time practicing.
Xu Le was speechless for a moment.
He signed his signature and listened to the boss’ incoherent “confession” for a long time.
He laughed until his face turned numb.
In the end, they took a picture together.
The boss even wanted to give him some desserts from the shop but was tactfully rejected.
“I’m already full, thank you.
” After leaving the pastry shop, Xu Tian’s gaze was attracted by the huge doll in the hands of the tourists who passed by.
Xu Le led her to the place to toss balls and win the doll.
“The rules are like this.
There are a total of five balls.
If you throw in four balls, you will be given to a large doll.
If you throw in three balls, you will receive a commemorative badge.
If you miss three balls, you will receive an encouragement award.
” Xu Tian excitedly threw for one round, but only two of the balls entered.
She looked at the dolls in the glass window and said coquettishly, “Brother, I want that Stitch!” Continue reading on MYB0XN0 V EL.
COM “Shall I try?” Xu Le did not have any intention of winning.
Who knew that he would hit the first, second and third! As long as one more ball entered, they would be able to get a prize.
He took a deep breath and brought out his calm composure from being used to experiencing grand occasions.
He raised his arm and threw the ball.
It arced through the air in a perfect parabola, hitting the hole right in the center.
“Yay!” Lu Yuxi jumped up happily.
Xu Tian got the Stitch doll as she wished.
The doll that was taller than her, causing her to trip and fall to the ground.
Lu Yuxi smiled as she helped her up.
“Let me hold it for you first.
I’ll put it in your room when we get home, okay?” “Okay.
” Xu Le was about to leave after helping his sister win a doll when he noticed Lu Yuxi’s gaze lingering on the strawberry bear in the display window.
Thus, Xu Le bought some balls from the staff.
After two rounds, he finally won the reward! He asked for a strawberry bear.
Xu Tian hugged Stitch’s ear and made a face at her brother.
“Shame on you, brother likes pink soft toys!” Xu Le blushed.
The next moment, he gave Lu Yuxi the strawberry bear.
“For me?” “Yeah.
” Lu Yuxi did not expect him to take her subtle actions to heart and took actions.
Tears welled up in her eyes as she hugged Xu Le.
“I love you to death!” She was an adult after all, and her arms were so tight that Xu Le could barely breathe.
“Ahem, if you don’t let go, I’m really going to… die.
” After playing at the amusement park for a day, Xu Tian got into a taxi and her eyelids started to flutter.
Before long, she fell asleep in Xu Le’s arms.
Xu Le and Lu Yuxi chatted casually.
“Did you find a job?” “I’ve sent out my resume, but none of them have any updates.
” Lu Yuxi looked depressed at the mention of work.
Without a source of income, she would exhaust her meagre savings very soon.
“Sigh, why don’t you find a job with a low income first?” “I thought of that too, but it’s not easy to find a part-time job in the short term.
” “That’s true.
” The atmosphere in the car became quiet.
Not long after, they saw the familiar streets and traffic lights.
They were about to reach the entrance of the district.
Xu Le thought about how he was usually the only one working at Hongxing Road.
He had to do everything from purchasing, tidying, and cleaning after the shop was closed.
In the past, with the mortgage and his sister’s expenses, he didn’t dare to hire anyone.
Now that he had money in his account, he supported his head and asked seriously, “I plan to hire a cleaner, a cashier for 6,000 yuan per month.
You will get two days off per week and work from 9 am to 9 pm.
Do you want to consider it?” Lu Yuxi said sincerely, “Give me 12,000 yuan and I’ll do a double job.
Thank you!” Xu Le knew that she was joking.
The next day, the two of them woke up early and sent Xu Tian to school.
They went to the wholesale market.
Xu Le hadn’t found a suitable supplier before, so he wanted to find one and get the other party to provide the delivery service.
This way, he could save a lot of time from buying groceries.
After walking around, he bought all the tofu, chili, tomato eggs, and potatoes that he needed for today… With two baskets full of potatoes, Xu Le saw the boss selling meat and vegetables at a low price.
He was about to go up and talk to him when Lu Yuxi snapped her fingers and said, “As the saying goes, a new official can start a fire three times.
Boss Xu, please wait a moment.
I’ll go and guarantee that the negotiation will be successful.
” Xu Le could not help but laugh.
He did not expect that after getting to know the school belle who used to be gentle and serious, she would actually be… a jokester? Lu Yuxi had a high EQ and knew how to talk.
She was also very sweet with her words.
In just a few sentences, she got the boss to give her a discount.
Before she left, she didn’t forget to add him on WeChat.
She smiled and said, “Don’t worry, our restaurant has high demand every day.
If we can establish a long-term partnership, our demand for vegetables will definitely increase gradually.
” With Lu Yuxi joining him, even though it was crowded on the first day, Xu Le was still doing his job orderly as he was busying himself in the kitchen.
Through the glass, he saw Lu Yuxi carrying dishes and cleaning the kitchen.
She was so busy that her feet were not even touching the ground.
At the end of the day, Lu Yuxi slumped back in her chair.
After a long time, she finally came to her senses and let out a sigh.
“I’m so tired.
” Xu Le’s cooking in the system space was equivalent to training his body.
After practising for a long time, he was full of energy.
Even if he was busy for a day, he wouldn’t feel tired.
“I’ve sent out the news of hiring a cleaner today, and I’ve set up a small application.
Usually, customers order dishes in the restaurant.
But there are too many people and it’s too noisy.
Sometimes, it’s easy to mix things up… Look.
” As Lu Yuxi spoke, she pushed her phone over.
There was an application for ordering food on the screen.
She did a demonstration and said, “There are only these few dishes and staple food being sold in the restaurant.
If you want to add more in the future, I can just add them in.
