Since she was planning to build a herbal tea business, Nadia had to buy all the apple thorn herbs and their seeds from all over the continent.
This was what Nadia had called the merchants for– to make a big order.
The merchants who heard what the new Marchioness ordered, couldn’t hide their bewilderment.
“With only apple thorns… You want to make a herbal tea business?”
“I think it’s going to be a successful one.”
The merchants’ expressions changed.
Had it not been for Nadia’s status as a noble woman, they would have spat out all kinds of cuss words they could come up with.
It was such an absurd thing to propose.
Just apple thorns? That was one specific herb.
“Why? Is there a problem?”
A problem? From the start, it was already a problem.
The merchants didn’t even know where to start.
How could they say that in front of the daughter of Duke Balazit who was also the new Marchioness of Winterfell family?
Wayne of the Northern Merchant Association was the one who decided to address the issue first.
“Where are you going to get the money to buy the apple thorns? Of course it is a very cheap herb, but you will need quite a lot of money to buy all of them that are available in the market.”
“I’m going to use the dowry I got from my father.”
Then they remembered what Nadia had said a few days ago.
The dowry couldn’t be used to pay off the debts because there was another place she planned to use it.
Did she mean this herbal tea business?
‘I’d rather she pay off the debts with that money!’
If she didn’t like that, she could just buy dresses or sets of jewelry!
It was better for her to spend it on luxury items, because jewelry could be sold again in the future.
“Then, the purpose of the dowry you mentioned last time was…”
It’s always been my dream to run my own business.
If it goes well, wouldn’t I be able to pay off the debt we owe you.”
It was a rather shocking statement to those who heard it.
Weren’t all noble women supposed to be ignorant? Now, the merchants were doubting whether the Duke loved his daughter so much that he didn’t have her home lessons.
Wayne asked the butler for help, begging him with his eyes to stop his master.
What are you going to do about her? If you don’t want to lose your fortune and to be humiliated, stop her!’
Then, Gordon shook his head with a gloomy look on his eyes.
‘I tried it.
It didn’t work.’
The hardships of life that Gordon had been through seemed to be evident on his face.
Now he couldn’t tell anymore if this was a comedy or a tragedy.
The merchants started to regret delaying the due date.
They thought there was really a solution that Nadia couldn’t say out loud, but somehow the solution was this.
Nadia’s eyes met their cold stare.
‘Why aren’t they saying anything? I guess it was no good telling them.’
The hardships of life seemed to be reflected in Gordon’s gloomy expression.
No one could tell whether this situation was a comedy or a tragedy.
They almost regretted the decision to delay the repayment date.
They thought there was a solution that would be hard to say, but they didn’t expect this to be the solution.
Though Nadia wasn’t forcing them to invest, somehow they got the picture.
However, the favors they received from the predecessor Marquis prevented them from turning a blind eye to the crisis of March of Winterfell.
“Madam, allow me to tell you what I think.
Purchasing all the herbs in bulk is not a very wise choice.”
“Apple thorns are of no value.
There are countless herbs to choose instead.
There is not much demand either.
Considering the shipping and storage costs, it will be a huge loss.”
“I’m afraid you’re mistaken.
The reason for today’s meeting is not for discussion.
I’m trying to hire you.
I’ll pay the brokerage fee according to your custom.
There will never be any harm to any of you.”
The immature noble lady seemed to have made her decision.
At this rate, she wouldn’t accept anything they said.
It was rather a good thing that they didn’t get angry when they tried to stop her making the foolish decision.
‘Well… She is the one losing the money, what say do I have anyway..’
They felt bad for the Marquis, who was lying in his sickbed.
They just hoped that Nadia would end the debt using her dowry and the Marquis’ property would not be harmed.
Wayne thought so as he sighed.
“If that’s the case, I’ll get in touch with merchants all over the continent.
I don’t think there will be a problem with securing the herbs.”
Since those merchants wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to sell useless herbs and collect the money.
