Qinyue hugged a bolt of light green muslin. She turned and asked her mother, “Will Zhuo Qinya go too?”
Chang Meifeng’s good mood instantly plummeted. She snorted and said, “I don’t know if she’s going, but Ding fu sent her an invitation too. Huh – ”
Qinyue’s expression was complicated. She was disappointed and happy. If Zhuo Qinya went, Jing Wang would certainly go too. But even if Jing Wang went, he only had eyes for Zhuo Qinya.
Three days later, Zhuo Qinlan woke up very early. She had maidservants iron her newly-made clothing and immerse them in incense. Then she took out a complete set of red gold jewelry that her mother gave her last year. She carefully drew her eyebrows and put on rouge.
She made her already exquisite and beautiful face even more radiant. She put on luxurious jewelry, a peach-colored peony dress with an intricate pattern, and a goose yellow double-breasted short coat. The collar was embroidered with small and delicate peonies. She really was dazzling.
Qinlan looked at the jade-like beauty in her mirror and smiled in satisfaction.
The maidservant next to her quickly praised, “Xiaojie is really like a fairy who descended to the mortal world. Not only are you beautiful, but your temperament is outstanding. Who knows how many gongzis would be mesmerized by Xiaojie’s appearance today?”
Qinlan glanced at her maidservant. “Don’t speak nonsense!”
But she was very happy. No matter what gathering she attended in the past, she would always be the center of everyone’s attention. Of course, today wouldn’t be an exception.
Zhuo Qinyue also dressed up meticulously. But she couldn’t help being overshadowed once she stood next to her younger sister. She wasn’t as beautiful as Qinlan. This was a fact and she had long been used to it.
Zhuo Zhonghai couldn’t help but nod his head again and again as he looked at his two daughters. She was indeed very beautiful. She just needed to work harder and everything would be perfect.
