The stunning woman’s face had a rippling smile, like like a blooming peony flower: outstandingly beautiful and overflowing with fragrance.
Everyone was stunned by this scene until their mouths dropped open. Everyone’s gazes were drawn to Zi You and no one paid attention to Shangguan Lingluo. Their eyes only saw this little standing, proud, and fairylike woman who was surrounded by butterflies.
Shangguan Lingluo’s painting wasn’t finished but she threw the brush away after seeing this scene. She stamped her feet in anger. “Forget this round. The next round is dance. Bengong doesn’t believe that Bengong will lose to you.”
