Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At the charity banquet…
The lights were on, and it was as bright as day.
The red carpet stretched for more than ten meters. On both sides were reporters carrying various cameras, as well as fans holding various support signs and phones. Because there were celebrities supporting the event, although the banquet had yet to start, the atmosphere outside was already very lively.
When Fu Sinian and Yu Manxi appeared, it caused a small climax.
The He family members, who were chatting with people, couldn’t help looking at the door. Just as Yu Manxi reached the door, Fu Sinian reached out to help her take off her woolen coat.
At this moment, the temperature in the capital was already close to zero degrees Celsius. They weren’t celebrities, so not many people paid attention to them when they were walking the red carpet. Most of them were wearing coats.
Under the dark brown woolen coat, her backless fishtail accentuated her beautiful and exquisite curves. Her lips were red and seductive.
Song Fengwan had just taken off her down jacket, and Fu Sinian reached out to take her jacket. “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome.” People outside didn’t know about it, but Fu Sinian knew very well that she was his little aunt, so he definitely had to take care of her.
Song Fengwan was wearing a peach blossom pink gown tonight. It was simple and elegant with a stand-up collar design, and the skirt reached her feet. She looked fresh and lively, and her phoenix eyes were slightly narrowed and charming.
“Sinian! Miss Yu.” Duan Linbai walked over with a smile. He looked at Song Fengwan and coughed twice. “Miss Song, welcome. Please come in.”
Song Fengwan noticed that many celebrities and internet celebrities had come tonight, and most of them were prestigious and influential people. The two parties were divided into two factions.
After cla.s.sification, some circles were obviously inferior to others.
Today, the He sisters and Old Madam He came.
“Grandma, Big Sister is here too. Should we go greet her?” He s.h.i.+qing was wearing a long white dress, looking dignified and gentle.
“Cousin, don’t go asking for ridicule. It’s obvious that she doesn’t want to bother with us.” He Xi, wearing a pink dress, sneered.
“She’s the future eldest young madam of the Fu family now. Even Duan Linbai wants to please her. How could she have a liking for us?
“Don’t go over and get snubbed and embarra.s.s yourself.”
“I told you long ago that Big Sister isn’t that kind of person.” He s.h.i.+qing frowned. “There are so many people. Be careful with your words.”
“It’s not like you didn’t see it at the Fu family’s birthday banquet. Eldest Madam Fu personally introduced her. She was so glamorous, but she treated us like air.” He Xi sized up Yu Manxi with narrowed eyes.
When the He family brought her back, she was a dark, thin, and ugly b.u.mpkin. How could she change so much after going overseas?
“He Xi!” He s.h.i.+qing frowned.
“Stop talking.” Old Madam He glared at the two of them angrily. “I brought you out today to make more friends, not to let you two quarrel here.”
“Grandma~” He Xi tugged at the corner of Old Madam He’s clothes and acted coquettishly.
“Almost all the young and promising single men in the capital are here tonight. You two should seize this opportunity!” Old Madam He had actually been observing Yu Manxi.
Now that her abandoned granddaughter was s.h.i.+ning so brightly, she was definitely shocked.
“Grandma, I told you I have a goal.” He Xi pouted.
“Who do you like? Duan Linbai?” Because she was her deceased son’s only child, Old Madam He doted on He Xi very much. Naturally, she knew that she had once been infatuated with Duan Linbai.
Duan Linbai was also an abnormal person, and he was usually very talkative. Even though the internet was abuzz with rumors about him being a playboy, everyone in the Beijing circle knew that he never got involved with women.
Coupled with his close relations.h.i.+p with Fu Chen, there were many vulgar rumors.
“It’s not him.” He Xi coughed twice.
“Then who is it?” Old Madam He asked.
“Don’t ask anymore.”
He s.h.i.+qing was standing at the side. She’s most likely still obsessed with the young master of the Qiao family. The key is that the ancestors of the He family and the Qiao family also had a conflict, and our relations.h.i.+p is very tense. If Grandma finds out…
Qiao Xiyan is definitely not someone you can have your sights on. Is it something you can handle?
Seeing that she didn’t want to say anything, Old Madam He didn’t continue asking. She just glanced at Yu Manxi. “You two don’t have to accompany me. I’ll just find a place to sit. You two should talk to more people.”
In the capital, there were always a hundred women and their families seeking partners. Old Madam He had brought them out tonight purely to find a partner for them.
But she had no idea that her two granddaughters were ambitious and bold people. One of them was staring at Jing Hanchuan while the other wanted to pounce on Qiao Xiyan.
“In that case, let me help you to the lounge,” He s.h.i.+qing suggested. The charity banquet started at eight, and it was only half past seven. There was still a long time for the figures in the hall to drink, mingle, and chat together. It was chaotic.
“Okay.” Old Madam He was old and felt a little tired.
But He Xi’s gaze kept following Song Fengwan. She was Qiao Xiyan’s cousin. If she became familiar with her, how could she not be able to get close to the Qiao family?
Song Fengwan had just taken a list of items for the charity auction tonight and was looking down at it.
“… So many people are actively partic.i.p.ating. Some people really want to do charity, while others are here to gain a good reputation. There are also many people here to find a partner.” Duan Linbai handed a gla.s.s of fruit juice to Song Fengwan.
Yu Manxi had Fu Sinian to take care of her, so it wasn’t his turn.
“Thank you.” Song Fengwan’s gaze landed on the head ornament of a Beijing opera costume. It was dark blue and slightly turquoise, and it was exquisitely crafted. It was obvious that it wasn’t an ordinary item at first glance.
“If I didn’t know better, I would have thought that this was a blind date banquet. Let’s just talk about the He family. Old Madam He is already so old, yet she still brought her two granddaughters for blind dates. It’s not easy.”
“Huh?” Song Fengwan looked up. Yu Manxi and Fu Sinian were greeting someone not far away. “Blind dates?”
“I heard that Mrs. He sprained her ankle and hasn’t recovered yet. This old madam is almost eighty years old. It’s really not easy for her to travel so much for her granddaughters. They’re all biological granddaughters, but the treatment is so different.”
Song Fengwan smiled without saying anything.
Duan Linbai was about to say something when he saw an acquaintance enter. “Sit by yourself for a while. If you need anything, look for me anytime. I’ll go entertain the guests.”
“Go ahead.” Song Fengwan wasn’t a child.
After Duan Linbai left, she found a seat and sat down. She looked at the auction items in the catalog seriously and felt a black shadow approaching. Accompanied by an elegant perfume fragrance, He Xi appeared in front of her.
“Miss Song, do you still remember me? We met at Old Master Fu’s birthday banquet.”
“Miss He?” Song Fengwan was surprised. She clearly knows that I’m on good terms with Big Sister Yu, so why did she approach me?
“Yeah, you have a good memory. You don’t have to call me Miss He. Just call me He Xi.” He Xi wasn’t like He s.h.i.+qing, and she didn’t know how to hide her emotions.
She was deliberately trying to please Song Fengwan and had ulterior motives, all of which were exposed in her eyes.
“Okay.” Song Fengwan smiled awkwardly.
He Xi wasn’t young, so it was impossible for her not to know about the matter of Yu Manxi and the He family.
She had been hospitalized for so long, but only in the last few days did the He family come to visit her under false pretenses. Coupled with He s.h.i.+qing’s viciousness, even though she had never interacted with He Xi before, she had preconceived notions and didn’t like her.
“Where did you buy the shoes you’re wearing tonight? They’re very nice. I want to buy a pair too.”
When women chatted, there would always be a breakthrough in clothes, shoes, bags, and cosmetics.
“Someone gave them to me. I don’t know where to buy them.” Fu Chen had given this pair of shoes to her on her 18th birthday.
“I just think the shoes look pretty good. The person who gave you them has really good taste…” He Xi naturally sat beside her.
Song Fengwan chatted with her perfunctorily until He Xi started mentioning the Qiao family…
“… I watched the live broadcast of the plagiarism incident. You’re really impressive. If it were me, I would have been scared out of my wits.” He Xi advanced step by step and almost constantly praised Song Fengwan.
Her flattery was obvious.
Song Fengwan smiled awkwardly.
“Your uncle is also very handsome. At Old Master Fu’s birthday banquet, the young master of the Qiao family who came with you is your cousin, right?
“You siblings are both very good-looking. Your cousin isn’t young anymore. Is he in a relations.h.i.+p?”
He Xi asked about Qiao Xiyan indirectly.
Only at this moment did Song Fengwan understand why this woman suddenly approached her and tried to curry favor with her. It turns out that…
She wants to woo my cousin.
“Heh, yeah, my cousin is already in a relations.h.i.+p,” Song Fengwan lied shamelessly.
She had already used this trick to fool Wu Yuxin before, but of course, Wu Yuxin naturally couldn’t compare to the He family. The He family had connections, so she couldn’t lie about him being married and having children. She could only say that he had a girlfriend.
“Ah… Is that so?” He Xi’s smile was obviously unnatural. “I wonder what kind of person he likes. She must be very outstanding to attract him.”
“Yes, my cousin-in-law is especially outstanding. It’s mainly because the two of them are a match made in heaven, and they’re especially compatible. They’re going to talk about getting married after the new year. Although she’s not in China, their relations.h.i.+p has always been very close.”
“Overseas…” He Xi wanted to ask around about her, but the He family couldn’t get information from overseas. She was extremely depressed. “Your cousin should be quite picky when it comes to finding a partner…”
“Actually, my cousin’s condition for finding a partner is simple.”
“As long as that person’s carving skills are better than his. Miss He, I’m sorry. Please excuse me.” Song Fengwan got up and left.
He Xi’s face paled. What kind of d.a.m.n condition is that? Qiao Xiyan’s hands are already a G.o.dlike existence in the industry. Better than him?
Is he really f*cking looking for a wife?!
This d.a.m.n girl must be lying to me.
She watched Song Fengwan and Yu Manxi walk together and felt hatred in her heart.
Yu Manxi must have spoken ill of me in front of her!
