Thai Tantric Talismans

Chapter 10 - Counterfeit money

Translated by H0RR1BL3CPU
Edited by EvilGurl, Ilesyt


Liu Fu sounded a bit embarrassed, “It was an accident. When you looked me up last time, I just so happened to not have anything on hand, so I went and bought something from some other talisman merchant. How could I have known that she’d give me the wrong goods. But don’t worry, it’ll probably be fine.”

“You call this fine?”

I was speechless, “Uncle Liu, this is a yin talisman! Moreover, there’s a pissed off female greater spirit in there, who knows what’ll happen. And that talisman merchant you worked with is way too careless. How can she mix up this type of yin talisman?”

Liu Fu awkwardly laughed, “Ah well… Since something’s wrong, just give your customer a refund and take back the yin talisman. A few days later, when I go to Thailand again, I’ll bring back another one for him.”

Hearing what Liu Fu said, I didn’t hesitate and immediately called Lao Liu.

A second hand tantric talisman like this, moreover one that’s already backfired on it’s owner, would definitely contain a yin spirit that is extremely angry. A pissed off female greater spirit…… If somehow the prayer is done incorrectly, something bad will definitely happen.

When I got through to Lao Liu, the first thing I did was explain the situation to him in detail. I also told him to hurry and return the tantric talisman to me and explain that I would refund the money.

Lao Liu was quite displeased when he heard that, “Boss Wang, don’t joke with me. I’ve already bought this tantric talisman, why would I return it?”

I felt worried, “Lao Liu, I’m not kidding here. This Yin talisman isn’t something just anyone can pray to. While there’s still time, hurry up and return it to me. I swear I’ll return the money, and in a few days, I’ll get you an even better one.”

Lao Liu laughed when he heard this, “I know what you’re thinking. You definitely felt that the money you got was too cheap, and now you feel regretful. So, you want me to return the item, and afterwards sell it to someone else at a higher price. Hehe, you businessmen are all the same. You’re all unable to take so much as half a loss. But, since you’ve already sold it to me, that means it’s mine. And I’m not giving it back, so why don’t you just accept that you’re earning a bit less this time, and give it up.”

When I heard that, I felt upset, but I still patiently advised Lao Liu. But that guy was dead set on treating me like a shark that would turn its back halfway through when they notice they could earn more doing something else, and kept opposing the refund.

He even said that no matter what happened, he’d bear the burden himself.

Towards narrow minded people like Lao Liu, who viewed everyone with suspicion, I was helpless. So I told him to keep in touch at all times and to give me a call if something happened or didn’t seem right.

Lao Liu immediately agreed, but as for whether he would actually listen to me, only he knew.

The morning of the next day, when I was eating a bowl of noodles at the neighbourhood store and was just about to finish up, something happened.

At the time, I didn’t have any small change, so I gave a hundred dollar bill. But who would’ve thought that the lady boss’s expression would turn unpleasant, to say the least, and exclaim that my money was fake.

I was surprised, and scrutinized the note after taking it back. It really was fake.

I immediately apologized and took out another one hundred. When the lady boss saw it, her gaze turned sharp and she coldly said, “We don’t accept counterfeit money.”

I was dumbfounded when I continuously pulled out two fake one hundreds. Luckily, she accepted the third bill.

When I was about to leave, the lady boss threw out a sentence, “Kid, we are a small business and earning money is already hard enough as it is.”

I felt an intense sense of embarrassment at the time. I was definitely thought of as a repeat offender by her.

After I left, I pondered over the matter, “Isn’t this the money Lao Liu gave me? I didn’t use it the past two days, but today, as soon as I used it, a problem came up.”

Thinking this over, I immediately headed home and scrutinized the 6000 that Lao Liu gave me, note by note.

After checking, I was absolutely furious. Within the 6000, 7 hundreds were counterfeit!

In all this time that I’ve been doing business, this was the first time I was cheated like this. Hence, my stomach was full of fire hot enough to burn the sun.

It wasn’t because I was stupid, but rather because Lao Liu was too cunning. Two days ago, when we conducted the transaction, he told me he was going to the bank. At the time, I thought that the bank wouldn’t give out counterfeit cash, so I didn’t check the notes themselves too deeply and just focused on the amount.

It was because of this moment of carelessness that I got taken advantage of by Lao Liu.

While thinking about this, I immediately gave Lao Liu a call and questioned him about the fake bills.

Lao Liu immediately denied it, “Boss Wang, when you accuse someone you must have evidence! How can you slander me like this? People who know me would all know that I am especially honest and have never done these kinds of things, could you have been mistaken?”

I fiercely gnashed my teeth in hatred. I was completely powerless. In this type of situation, anything I said would be useless. As long as Lao Liu didn’t admit it, I couldn’t do anything. The only person I could blame for this was myself. Based on what I knew about how thick Lao Liu’s face was, even if I confronted him in person, he would still deny it.

After this happened, I became especially upset. Not only did I lose seven hundred for nothing, I still had to suppress the flames in my stomach.

In the end, I could only comfort myself with the words, “You spent the money on an important lesson.”

After another two days passed, I slowly forgot about what happened with Lao Liu.

On the afternoon of the third day, when I was advertising about my business on the internet, I suddenly got a call.

The caller was someone who called herself Luo Jie[1].

After a simple introduction, I found out that she was the talisman merchant that sold Liu Fu that second hand yin talisman. When I heard this, I was quite surprised. I didn’t expect the person to be a woman[2].

This wasn’t me looking down on her, but rather that people selling tantric talismans, especially yin talismans, would always experience strange happenings, so it was something that couldn’t be done by people who were easily scared.

Luo Jie said that she wanted to treat me to a meal as a form of apology for what had happened.

I naturally wouldn’t turn down a free meal, so I let her pick the time and place.

Luo Jie was straightforward and just told me to pick a random place tonight.

When the time came, I saw that Luo Jie looked quite different from how I imagined her.

She looked to be about thirty years old, and was quite beautiful. Her hair was cut short and professional, and carried with it the scent of a woman.

Most importantly, Luo Jie’s figure was exceptionally tall but also slender. When we stood side by side, she was only a bit shorter than me.

Luo Jie was very friendly after we met up, and told me to pick whatever dishes I wanted.

While eating, she very straightforwardly apologised to me, “Boss Wang, the matter with the yin talisman was my younger cousin’s fault, and Liu Fu has already told me what happened. If you suffered any damage, I’ll compensate you.”

“I didn’t so don’t worry about it. But the customer is a bit troublesome to deal with. He isn’t willing to return the goods.” I felt as if my hands were tied here.

Luo Jie smiled and handed me a cigarette. She only lit up her own after she noticed that I didn’t smoke. After taking a deep breath, she said, “Boss Wang, it is obvious that you are an honest person. If I was talking to Liu Fu instead, that lion would’ve long since opened his mouth.”

I laughed but didn’t say anything. I just thought that Luo Jie’s appearance when smoking was exceptional.

Luo Jie said, “Boss Wang, I am someone that greatly values reputation when doing business. This matter was because of my carelessness, so let me express my remorse and desire to cooperate with you. From today onwards, whenever you buy something from me, I’ll give you a 10% discount. How does that sound?”

When I heard that, I was immediately filled with enthusiasm. I thought to myself, “Luo Jie is really generous! No wonder her tantric talisman business is doing so well!”

Apart from the meal, I gained a basic understanding of Luo Jie.

She gave me the impression of an amazing woman; she was good at business, not overly avaricious, and only looked for huge gains. She had a tantric talisman shop in both China and Thailand, along with a large reserve of manpower. A lot of the tantric talismans Liu Fu couldn’t get, she could obtain.

For a young woman to get to this point, solely by relying on her own ability, she was obviously immensely talented.

Before leaving, Luo Jie gave me her business card, and said that if I ever needed anything, I could head to her tantric talisman shop where quality at a reasonable price was guaranteed.

I was absolutely elated. Who would’ve thought that this accident would bring about another supply route for my tantric talisman business?

 


[1] Could also be read as big sis Luo. I’m not too sure whether 姐 in this case is part of her name or she’s calling herself big sis. But since I didn’t translate 老 and 小, should be fine if I leave 姐 as jie right?

[2] In chinese, 他(he) 她(she) and 它(it) are all pronounced the same. So, when Liu Fu said she last chap, MC thought Liu Fu said he.
