Little One Tears the Villain's Script - Chapter 35
Target Detected (1)
Jiang Xing left and did not return until evening.
Jiang Xiaoman had been waiting for him for a long time. She already knew that Little Flower would not escape this tribulation when she left, but when she saw him coming back empty-handed, she still couldn’t help but shed some tears.
“Uncle, you villain! Little Flower was still so young.”
Jiang Xing said, “It’s only because it was still young that it was very delicious.”
“……!!!” Xiaoman was so angry that she burst into tears.
She angrily ran to the pigpen and threw a handful of pigweed to the through, loudly saying “Big Flower, eat more. Get fatter so uncle can’t carry you anymore!”
Jiang Xing couldn’t coax her, so he could only leave and report back to Jiang Xiumei on the progress he made today.
“Everyone agreed. If there was work, of course, they’re willing to do it. But Mr. Yu has not started mining yet, and I also have to register first before I can accept customers. There are still many things to prepare.”
Jiang Xiumei was surprised to hear it. “What are you going to register for?”
“A business license! As a proper business, of course, we need to do everything properly.” Jiang Xing was usually scatterbrained, but he was quite reliable when he got serious. “Don’t worry, Little Flower did not die in vain. We have discussed everything properly.”
Jiang Xiumei felt a bit of pain when he mentioned Little Flower. She didn’t think about it further and gritted her teeth, “You better make its sacrifice worth it!”
She had never left the village and didn’t understand about all this business, let Jiang Xing handle everything.
Amidst the silent night, Xiaoman rubbed her eyes that were red from crying and thought back to Little Flower.
Just like Jiang Xiumei, she didn’t understand much about the business that Jiang Xing was going to do. She didn’t know whether the piglet’s death would be in vain or not, so she asked the system again.
“System, what is logistics?”
The system had long been accustomed to having a discussion forum with her before going to bed and answered her with a coaxing tone. “Logistics is the transport of goods.”
Afraid that she would ask what it is, the system continued right away.
“That is… You know, like when you send a letter? A long long time ago, there were no phones, so people used letters to deliver messages. But back then there was no centralized organization or profession for delivering letters, so people could only entrust them to acquaintances. It was hard to manage and the letters were often lost. That’s why we have a post office later.”
“But other than a letter, sometimes you also want to send goods to people. Then what should we do? So there must also be the corresponding people that handle the transportation of goods. They do the same thing as the post office but send goods instead of letters. Your uncles are probably going to do similar kinds of work, transporting goods from one place to another.”
“When the goods that need to be transported reach a certain size, then the corresponding scale is needed to transport it. At this stage, you would need a specialized team and management to do it. Take online shopping, for example, goods from one store could be sent to all parts of the country. It’s impossible to do that alone.”
Xiaoman knew about the post office. There was one in the village, but it was already very old and tattered. There was an old grandpa that sits there all day reading the newspaper. Usually, almost no one went there. Even the mailbox’s locks were already rusty.
But there was a word there that she didn’t know.
She already forgot about the topic with her uncle and asked the system while blinking her eyes. “What is online shopping?”
“It’s…” The system wanted to sigh, but unfortunately, it wasn’t equipped with this feature. “It’s a method for shopping that will become popular in the future. It’s just like how you usually buy candies, you can buy things from far, far away straight from here.”
“So convenient?” She got up with a bang, her eyes sparkling. “Then why is it only available later, not now? Why haven’t I heard of something so good before? How much later will it be? Later Uncle…”
“Enough!” The system couldn’t bear it anymore. “Why are there so many ‘why’s? I don’t know! It is what it is, it doesn’t exist now, it will only exist later! It’s a question of the human world’s development, it doesn’t have anything to do with the system! I’m a villain system, not an encyclopedia. Don’t ask me ‘why’ anymore!”
Jiang Xiaoman heard that its tone was not very good, so she angrily shut her mouth, and was a little sad.
The two of them went quiet for a while, neither saying anything.
