Shen Qinglan shook her head, “I don’t know.” She never paid attention to these things, how could she know.

Fang Tong didn’t expect her to know either, she had just asked casually.

“It seems that Xiaoxuan has been busy recently.” Since Linda accepted the script for her, the audition must be a sure thing.

Fang Tong was lying on the sofa, feeling a little bored, “Qinglan, what are you going to do after graduation?”

Shen Qinglan was stunned, and then said, “I want to open a coffee shop.” This was an idea that suddenly popped up in her head one morning. When she told Kim Eun-hee about it, she was laughed at.

Fang Tong was also stunned, and then smiled, “I thought you would say that you would join the Junyu Group.” After all, it was her brother’s company, and it seemed that Qinglan also had a share in the company.

Shen Qinglan smiled, if she would have wanted to join the Junyu Group, she would have already entered the company, and wouldn’t have waited until now, not to mention the Junyu Group, she still had shares in Shengxuan and Meise, which were transferred to her by Fu Hengyi. It was now that Shen Qinglan found that she was a little rich woman.

“But with your personality, it’s not bad to open a coffee shop. I think you can quietly read books in the shop for an entire afternoon.” Fang Tong thought about such a scene and smiled.

Shen Qinglan smiled slightly. Opening a coffee shop was a flash of inspiration. She hadn’t decided whether to open it or not. Compared with opening a coffee shop, she actually preferred a tea house.

“Since, you plan to open a coffee shop, have you chosen any place?”


“Have you bought the equipment?”


“What about the supply?”


The more Fang Tong asked, the more black lines started to appear on her face. It looks like the idea was still at planning stage and the preparation had not been started yet.

“Qinglan, let’s go out and look for a shop now, don’t you have nothing to do?” Fang Tong said enthusiastically.

Shen Qinglan was taken aback and looked at her, “Now?”

“Yeah, if you plan to open a store, you will have to look for it sooner or later. Where can you find a store that you are satisfied with easily? Since we have time now, let’s go out and have a look. In case you find it, it will be good. If you can’t find it, we’ll just have gone out for a walk.”

Seeing that she was really interested, and she really needed to go someplace, Shen Qinglan nodded in agreement, “Then wait for me, I’ll go and change.”

She moved quickly and came out immediately, then Fang Tong followed her out, “Wow, Qinglan, it turned out to be a Ferrari sports car.” Fang Tong was walking around a red sports car, and a burst of sound came from her mouth. She was amazed.

“Well, my brother gave it to me on my birthday last year.”

“Your brother is so kind to you. If I had such a brother, I would be happy enough to die, but unfortunately there is no hope in this life.” Fang Tong pretended to be sorry. Although there was envy in her eyes, it was pure and free of impurities.

“Get in the car.” Shen Qinglan opened the door.

Fang Tong sat in the car, still sighing, “Qinglan, the longer I get along with you, the more I feel that you are a low-key person. If you had driven the car to school earlier, how would those people have dared to say that you were being kept?”

“I’m afraid the rumours would have spread more and more.” Shen Qinglan said lightly.

Fang Tong thought about it, yes, maybe what happened to Qinglan was not about her relying on a man, anyway there were people with pink eye disease everywhere.

“Then where are we going now?” Although she suggested to come out to see the store location, Fang Tong didn’t know where to look.

“Let’s go to the south of the city first.” Shen Qinglan said.

“Chengnan?” Weren’t there a lot of courtyards in the south of the city? And there was really a lot of land. If she wanted to open a shop there, it seemed…

The car whizzed fast on the road. Because it was raining outside, Shen Qinglan had put up the roof so they couldn’t feel the wind whizzing past, it seemed that even the coolness of the sports car was a little lessened.

“Qinglan, when the weather clears, take me out for a ride.” Fang Tong said.

Shen Qinglan glanced at her, “It’s winter now, and it’s more than ten degrees below zero outside, are you sure?”

“Uh…” Fang Tong shrank his neck, “Then let’s wait until spring comes.”

The distance was not very far, and there were not many cars on the road, so they arrived quickly.

“If only I could have a courtyard like this in the future.” Fang Tong stood at the entrance of the alley, looking at the courtyards inside, the corners of the alley lined with bluestone slabs, and moss which indicated the traces of time. It was just that such a courtyard was worth at least 10 million yuan, and she would never be able to think about it in her life.

Shen Qinglan didn’t feel much about these things. She had made a phone call on the way and had found someone, so Fang Tong was not in a hurry and followed Shen Qinglan slowly through the alley. However, because the cold wind was whistling past, her neck was frozen and had become stiff.

On the bluestone pavement, it was raining again, and the road was slippery. In order to prevent falls, Fang Tong hid under Shen Qinglan’s umbrella and held her arm.

Soon, Shen Qinglan stopped in front of a courtyard and rang the doorbell. Footsteps sounded inside. The door opened, revealing a man’s face, which didn’t look very old.

“Are you Miss Shen?” The visitor looked at Shen Qinglan and asked with a smile.

Shen Qinglan nodded, and someone invited the two of them in.

When she entered, Fang Tong found out that the courtyard was even more beautiful than she thought. The courtyard was filled with rockeries and flowing water, and there were lotus flowers in the water, but since it was winter, there were only some residual lotuses left, and one could vaguely see the swimming fish at the bottom of the pond.

In addition to these, there were also some flowers and trees planted. However, because it was the winter season, it looked a little depressing, but it was not difficult to imagine what kind of beauty it would show when spring came.

Suddenly, Fang Tong twitched her nose, as she smelt the lingering scent of flowers, “Hey, what kind of flower fragrance is this, it smells so good, there are still flowers in winter.”

The man who took the lead looked back at Fang Tong, He said gently, “It’s Lamei[1].” His finger pointed to the southwest corner.

Fang Tong looked in the direction he pointed, and sure enough, in the southwest corner, she saw a blooming flower. It was yellow. From a distance, it looked like a piece of yellow silk with a faint fragrance. In the corner not far away were two red plum blossom trees with bright red flowers, adding vitality and color to this depressing yard.

Fang Tong’s eyes fell on the two plum blossom trees, and then she whispered in Shen Qinglan’s ear, “Qinglan, what are we doing here?”

“We came to look at the store.”

“…” Fang Tong glanced suspiciously. It didn’t look like a coffee shop here at all, but the air seemed to have a faint scent of tea, which complemented the scenery in the yard.

The owner here must be an elegant person.

“Open a coffee shop here, is anyone even here?” Fang Tong whispered.

Shen Qinglan smiled without saying a word.

The man brought Shen Qinglan and Fang Tong into a room, which seemed to be a tea room, with a middle-aged woman sitting in it.

The woman was wearing a cheongsam, kneeling on the ground, with a straight back and an elegant figure. Shen Qinglan took off her shoes and sat down opposite her. Fang Tong hesitated and followed.
