s a contract with another fruit store for mulberries, and I have developed my own distribution channels.

Today, I received two small silver coins in exchange for a large colander full of them.
I’m taken aback.
It’s no different than Hakeem’s daily wage for working hard all day.
I was concerned that our pay was too low.

An oba-san fruit vendor said excitedly to me, “Your mulberries have an excellent reputation! They have a strong flavor, are sweet and fresh, and are insect-free.
Mulberries are scarce in this country.
A royal palace cook recently tasted them and requested all of them.
I’ll raise the price slightly, Alesia-chan, so you don’t sell them to other fruit vendors!”

I was overwhelmed by the momentum and forced to say, “Y-Yes.
Don’t worry, I will not sell to other stores!” which Hakeem later chastised me for.

“In such a case, Alesia, if they persist, we can raise the purchase price slightly more.
At first, don’t nod your head.”

“Really?! I messed up! I’ll work harder next time.
But I’m not sure why a deal with the royal palace would be beneficial.”

“I believe this is because the royal palace always pays in cash rather than on credit.
You buy on credit and pay at the end of the month at restaurants and street vendors, but you don’t get paid in the meantime, and if you don’t get a good deal, you can get ripped off.”

I’m gaining a lot of knowledge.”

Hakeem laughed as I expressed my admiration.

“Alesia is an Ojo-sama for teaching me how to write and do math despite her lack of knowledge in those areas.”

“I am not an Ojo-sama.
I’m the daughter of a wealthy farmer!”

I see.”

For three weeks, Chana has been weaving silk.
She finished the silk cloth during her commute home.

It’s difficult to believe that a ten-year-old girl created it, or is it because a beautiful ten-year-old girl created it? A very lovely and gleaming silk cloth was created.
It appears to be cool, but it is quite the opposite.
It’s a little warm.

I brought it to Isabelle-san’s house and showed her.
Isabelle-san placed the cloth on her lap, put on her reading glasses, carefully examined it, and exclaimed, “Oh my!”

“Is it not good enough for an amateur, Isabelle-san?”

They’re of high quality.
This item could be sold to the nobility for two small gold coins.
What’s going on with kids nowadays? For the first time in their lives, they raised and wove silkworms, and the finished silk cloth is of the highest quality!”

I couldn’t believe how much money I made selling mulberries for two small silver coins, but a gold coin for a silk cloth?

“A trained young camel can be purchased for two small gold coins! While selling mulberries, I made a pittance, but two small gold coins for silk cloth?!”

“Alesia-san, please calm down.”

Because I was so excited, Chana-chan was a little scared.
“I’m sorry.” But I couldn’t stop laughing because I was so happy.

I only have a hunch that I’ll be able to make a lot of money out of silk.
That night, I went to bed with a smile on my face.

While I slept, the rain I had caused to fall slowly spread, and according to my father, it was about two kilometers in diameter.

I still don’t know how to control the rain, but my life is going well so far.

But then…

Isabelle-san said the silk cloth was worth two small gold coins, but it turned out to be even more incredible.
