“You want all the Lovey Peonies?”
“Not only the Lovey Peonies but also the Cloud Peonies.”
“Huh?” Aldrich was so happy.
He would usually need a few months to sell this amount of flowers. Unexpectedly, Thomas bought all of them in just half an hour today.
Thomas had not done speaking yet.
Thomas continued saying, “I don’t just want your flowers, but I also want your garden. I want all the ownership.”
‘What…’ Aldrich was in an awkward position.
He was not planning on being jobless.
He looked troubled. “Mr. Mayo, why are you doing this? If you think my flowers are pretty, you can come over and buy them every year. Is it necessary to buy my garden?”
Thomas did not explain the reason, and he just held up a finger. “Ten million dollars. Would you sell it then?”
That was a pretty tempting number.
This huge garden was just worth about $7,000,000. When someone was willing to spend $10,000,000 to buy it, Aldrich had already earned a profit. Nevertheless, he was still very reluctant.
Thomas held up another finger. “Twenty million dollars.”
“Mr. Mayo, you’re troubling me…”
“Thirty million dollars!”
“Deal!” Aldrich’s pained expression instantly disappeared.
Seriously, should he still not sell it for $30,000,000?
What if Thomas regretted it?
This was totally a premium price.
Thomas continued saying, “Okay, from now onward, this garden belongs to me. But I don’t know anything about gardening, so I’ll still need you to manage it for me. I’ll pay you the management fee according to the highest market price.”.
“Thank you!” Aldrich was extremely happy.
He earned the money, he did not lose the job, and he did not need to bear the risk Where else could he get such a good deal?
Soon, Thomas and Aldrich handled all the procedures.
From this moment, this garden belonged to Thomas. But Thomas did not announce this. For outsiders, Aldrich was still known as the owner of this garden.
Everything was ready, and the next step would be waiting for Dragon Scale to jump into the trap.
As soon as Thomas left, Dragon Scale brought her people there.
When she saw that the Lovey Peony was not bought by others, she instantly sighed in relief. She was afraid that Thomas would come and buy first. In that way, she would not be able to harm Thomas.
She also did not waste time talking. She just bought all the Lovey Peonies and Cloud Peonies at a high price.
Aldrich just sold her without hesitation. Before Thomas left, he purposely asked Aldrich to directly sell regardless of the price, as long as Dragon Scale came to buy.
Aldrich was not the owner anymore. Naturally, he just listened to Thomas. However, during the process of selling, Aldrich played a trick as Thomas had predicted. He purposely switched the two kinds of flowers.
Lovey Peony was labeled as Cloud Peony, and Cloud Peony was claimed to be Lovey Peony. The two kinds of flowers were sold to Dragon Scale using a completely reversed way.
Dragon Scale happily shipped the Cloud Peonies as the Lovey Peonies, leaving the real Lovey Peonies. She even seriously told Aldrich. If Thomas sent his people to buy it, Aldrich had to sell the remaining Cloud Peonies to Thomas.
She wanted to set Thomas up, but she did not know she was the one being set up now.
