“Oh — YuanQiu and her brother are back?” The people watching the excitement turned and looked at YuanQiu and YuanHao walking slowly over. They were startled. They hadn’t seen the siblings for a few days and it was like they became different people. That Xia YuanQiu especially had skin so white and tender that water could be squeezed out of it. Her originally ordinary-looking eyes now looked look graceful like a noble household’s daughter.
“YuanQiu, what miraculous elixir did you take? Why do you look like a different person in just a few days? Educate us.” The gossipy women couldn’t help but ask.
YuanQiu’s eyes shifted. She smiled lightly and gently, but her dark-like-ink eyes were very cold. “I’ve always looked like this. You’ve just never seen me like this before.” infer
Her words were vague and could lead to unlimited assumptions. Someone immediately said, “When YuanQiu’s parents were alive, she looked just like this. She had powder white jade skin. If her face wasn’t dark, with no parents to take care of a little girl like her, some people might have twisted minds. Now that the siblings have grown up and YuanQiu is about to reach marriageable age, it is time to reveal her true face.”
The crowd immediately agreed. “Yes, I think that YuanQiu is prettier than that Jiang Chunyan. The Liu family ate a big loss this time.”
It seemed that Liu Cui really was unpopular in the village. Everyone liked making fun of her. Her character had already reached the point where it caused public dislike.
YuanQiu engaged in a little small talk with the crowd before pulling YuanHao through the crowd and to their house.
Xia Tieniu’s family of four was sitting on small stools in her yard. Their faces were as black as iron. They glared at YuanQiu and YuanHao as if they were enemies.
