Chapter 407: Please teach me how to do business

“Me?” Robb deliberately lowered his voice and said in an arrogant tone, “Your husband and you aren’t that familiar with each other. Do you have anything to talk about with me?”

Hearing that he called himself her “husband”, Marian didn’t say anything. Instead, she showed an admiring face. “You are the greatest businessman I’ve ever seen. You can make everything powerful and miraculous. My father often tells me the story that you told him you can cut cake into eight pieces and sixteen pieces to sell, and also tells me the story that you charge a year in advance for running water, and the advertising game you taught my father, all of which benefited our family a lot…”

Robb was speechless

Marian blushed and said, “I adore you so much. I want you to be my teacher like Robb. He’ll study wind magic and I’ll learn business skills. Is that okay?”

Robb was speechless

It was very embarrassing. Robb was willing to teach people. When he was interested, he would teach people around him all kinds of knowledge. But if he wanted to be a teacher and teach them how to do business in a systematic way, it would be impossible. On one hand, he was not in the mood, and on the other hand, he didn’t have the ability to do that.

Being a teacher was something for a university. In this world, talents could not be found everywhere. Moreover, Robb did not think he was very talented. What he knew was all kinds of business common sense borrowed from modern generation.

Robb shook his head and said, “no, I don’t want to teach you. I’m not familiar with you. You came to me for no reason. I haven’t even brushed my teeth yet.”

Marian, “I will pay a very generous tuition.”

Robb continued to shake his head. “I don’t lack money.”

Marian felt very sad now. She pouted pitifully, turned around and was about to leave.

Seeing her pitiful look, Robb felt a little sorry for her. [when I first went to the magic school, this girl took good care of me. She asked for money and materials. She helped me a lot, so I have to take care of her,] he thought.

What could he teach her without effort? At the same time, if this news spread, it would improve the world!

“Ah!” Robb suddenly said, “Marian, I don’t have time to teach you how to do business, but it’s okay to lay a foundation for you. I want to ask you, your family often needs to calculate the number of guests, right?”

Hearing Robb, Marian turned around with great joy. “Yes, we often have to settle accounts.”

“Then, how do you calculate the math?”

Marian cheered up and waved at the servant who followed her. The servant brought a strange set of tools and placed them on the table in front of Robb.

Robb took a closer look and found that it was a large board with several parallel lines drawn on it. There were also many “boxes” like a “chessboard” on it. Each of them was made of copper with a diameter of about two or three centimeters. The numbers of 0 to 9 were marked on it.

Marian said with a smile, “this is a threaded abacus. Our family uses it to settle accounts. It’s very fast.”

“Oh?” Robb was very interested and came up with a simple math problem. Seeing that Marian was quickly setting up the board, he quickly thought of one.

With a smug smile, she said, “Godfather, I’m not bad at calculations. My father has trained me to use the threaded abacus since I was a child. My calculation speed is faster than my father’s. I’m the best in the Corton family.”

Robb smiled and said, “yes, you’re right. It’s really fast, but it’s still not as fast as I am. Look at it.”

Robb waved his hand and took something from the air. A piece of wood flew over.

He rubbed it and the wooden block turned into a Chinese-style abacus. It turned out that this was a “decoration” produced by the carpenter class in “Dark Blade”.

When Robb was in college, he had taken a few classes of abacus calculations. Although it was not very good for calculations, he was still made to use it.

He put his abacus on the table and said with a smile, “if you say you are the best in the Corton family, how can I make you the best in the whole kingdom?”

Marian looked at the calculations and was confused. “What’s this?”

“This is also an abacus.” Robb smiled and said, “come on, calculate this bill, I’ll solve it with you.”

Marian looked at the string of beads with a puzzled look on her face. She didn’t know what it meant, but there was no problem with the payment list. It cost X gold coins to purchase, and it also earned X gold coins to sell.

Robb listened to her counting and quickly played with the abacus beads in his hands. Fortunately, he didn’t forget the few abacus counting classes in his university, so he managed to keep up with her. It was so embarrassing that he almost wanted to pretend to fall if he couldn’t keep up with her. Fortunately, the grinding emperor is the grinding emperor. Back then, he was also very good at calculations. Although he was not very skilled, it was enough to destroy the “threaded abacus”.

After Marian finished, Robb just finished it. He stopped and pretended to be calm. “The answer is that you have a balance of 1032 gold coins, right?”

“So soon?” Marian was shocked. “I just finished, yet you’re already done?”

Robb smiled and shook the abacus in his hand. The abacus beads made a noise. “This is the power of my abacus. I don’t want to teach you anything else, but I will teach you how to use this abacus, which is also a part of business.”

Marian looked at the abacus in Robb’s hand and then looked at her own threaded abacus. There was no need to hesitate. She quickly threw her abacus far away, and then gave a salute to Robb, “thank you, Godfather.”

“come on, sit down.” Robb asked her to sit opposite her stone table, set up the abacus and explained with a smile: “the beads below represent 1, and the beads above represent 5, one on one, two on two, three on three, five to four.”

It was easy to understand the abacus. As soon as he taught it, she would recite and practice them.

Marian had a natural talent for math and dealt with numbers all the year round. Such a person could learn calculation very fast. It only took her a short while to finish basic addition.

She pulled the calculation beads and said happily, “this is a good plan! It’s so convenient and awesome. With this, I’m really confident that I can be the fastest person to settle accounts in the kingdom.”

“Well, as long as you like it.”

As soon as Robb finished his words, the crystal ball on the table lit up. It was time for him to talk to the queen again.

Robb didn’t ask Marian to leave. He asked her to practice the abacus and answered the phone.


Just a college student that loves reading novels~!
