Chapter 44: How Extravagant! (2)
There were many bolts of cloth behind the counter - khaki, denim, corduroy, fleece, and fine cotton. Their colors were rather monotonous, mostly gray, blue, black, or olive green.
As Gu Qingyao looked at them, a wave of nostalgia suddenly swept over her.
This was what her life was like when she was young!
"Yao Yao, which one do you like?" Mo Beihan asked Gu Qingyao.
Actually, he did not like any of these materials. He looked at them with the eyes of someone who had been reborn. Now that he had returned, how could he possibly like any of these?
But there was no choice. In these times, this was all that was available.
Gu Qingyao chose a piece of olive green khaki, and some fine cotton. She was not interested in the rest.
She did want the fleece, but it was too expensive.
Although Mo Beihan's drew a good salary, he put his life on the line in exchange for it. She could not just fritter it away.
When she sold the grain in her interspace on the black market in the future, she would come back for it.
But Mo Beihan was reluctant to buy so little. "It's too little. Yao Yao, you should buy more. Don't save money on my behalf. These things are sometimes unobtainable. It's unusual to be able to get them today, and some of the coupons will expire if they aren't used. I have a plentiful supply and many cloth coupons. If you don't use them, they'll expire.
"You should buy more and bring it back to make some clothes."
Gu Qingyao looked at Mo Beihan. This fellow seemed very used to paying her bills!
But before Gu Qingyao could reply, Mo Beihan looked at the piece of fleece and said, "I'll take the fleece."
"Good!" The sales assistant excitedly brought out the material. "There are ten meters of this material. Do you want to take it all?"
"I'll take it all!"
Mo Beihan replied without hesitation.
The fleece was in red and blue checks and was very fashionable in these times. Girls loved to make clothes from this type of material, and they felt proud to wear it out.
The sales assistant was also very happy.
Gu Qingyao glanced at Mo Beihan, and perceived the sincere love in his eyes. Her heart softened.
This was a truly good man. In her previous life, he had kept her company and doted on her all her life. If they had not been trapped by Bai Youran and Gu Ruoqing's schemes, they would have had a blissful life.
Gu Qingyao thought about it and did not hesitate anymore. Anyway, she had plenty of resources. With her around, Mo Beihan would not suffer any lack in this life.
So Gu Qingyao stopped arguing and said, "Give me another twenty meters of cotton and thirty meters of this blue, gray and black checked material. Also, do you have any wool?"
"Of course!" The sales assistant was even happier when she saw that they were buying so much.
"For wool, we have blended yarn and sheep's wool. You've come at the right time, our stock has just arrived."
All these were hard-to-get items and were very expensive. Even so, they sold very well. So Mo Beihan and Gu Qingyao were considered lucky to be able to get them.
Mo Beihan immediately smiled as he looked at the colorful wool. Gu Qingyao was also rather happy.
Mo Beihan immediately pointed to the bright red and pink wool. "I'll take both of these!"
His words successfully frightened the sales assistant.
She said almost disbelievingly, "Comrade, the sheep's wool is twenty dollars a kilogram. These two will weigh twenty kilograms altogether. Are you sure?"
"I'm sure, I'll take them all!"
Mo Beihan was very excited. It was unusual to come across wool in such nice colors. Bright red and pink were exactly right for a young girl. So Mo Beihan, who was not short of money, felt that if he might not have such an opportunity again!
It was now or never. Since they had come across it, they had better snap it up.
