MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE, VOLUME 9 - Season 15 Episode 52
Lu Qinyu did not say anything. He only sighed and smiled at her.
But this made Fu Chenxi feel even worse. Somehow, it felt like she had been denied.
Especially when Lu Qinyu did not mention it directly. If not, she did not need to blind guess.
Lu Beichen asked, “Dad, so what if her studies are good? This is a banquet, not a parent meeting, right? Alright, Chenxi, come. Let’s go inside for some food.”
Just then, Lu Chuxia came over again. She looked at Fu Chenxi and a surprise came on her face.
At first, she naturally did not react as she did not know who this was.
Moreover, she never paid any attention to this very ordinary girl.
Having heard Lu Qinyu’s words, she got a little curious.
Could it be this girl… was who they talked about, Lu Beichen’s girlfriend?
That was too…
Lu Chuxia scoffed, looked at her, and asked, “What’s your name? How come I haven’t seen you before?”
Fu Chenxi was interrupted by her arrogant voice. She flinched and replied, “I… I’m Fu Chenxi.”
“Oh… I’ve never heard of you. Who’s your father?”
Lu Beichen frowned. “Lu Chuxia, that’s enough. What are you doing?”
Lu Chuxia was very direct with her words, especially to a person she did not have high regard for.
“Brother, who’s this? Don’t tell me she’s your girlfriend.”
“So what if she is?”
“Haha, nothing much. Just that…” Lu Chuxia scoffed and looked up and down at her. “What taste you have.”
Fu Chenxi sank when she heard that. Her legs weakened.
Lu Beichen looked and dragged Lu Chuxia away.
“Lu Chuxia, what are you doing?”
He said coldly.
Lu Chuxia asked, “Why? Can’t I be honest?”
Lu Chuxia looked back and scrutinized Fu Chenxi. “Seriously, not good looking. You have so many pretty girls around you. Why would you pick a person like this? Have you lost your mind?”
Lu Beichen scoffed. “Pretty girls? You, haha. Forget it. Low EQ and annoying, you make no sense when you speak.”
“Hey, who are you talking about?” Lu Chuxia put her hands on her waist angrily.
“Don’t you know who I’m talking about? Don’t you usually look at yourself in the mirror?”
“You… You just said what I said about your girlfriend. But what I’ve said is the truth. She’s not good enough for you.”
“Ha, good enough or not, is not for you to say.”
Lu Beichen turned around after saying his piece. He could not be bothered with her and pulled Fu Chenxi away to leave.
Fu Chenxi was very hurt. She pushed him awkwardly. “Don’t pull me…”
Lu Beichen turned back to say, “Alright, don’t bother about her. If she wasn’t my sister, I would have chased her out of the house long ago. She’s selfish, wilful, and shoots her mouth.”
Fu Chenxi shook her head. She felt that what she said was not wrong. She was… Too ordinary.
Lu Beichen said, “Don’t take her words to heart.”
Fu Chenxi said, “I am too ordinary…”
“How are you ordinary? I think you’re fantastic.”
Fu Chenxi looked at him. “Really?”
“Of course, ordinary or not, that’s not for her to say.”
Fu Chenxi felt comforted.
Yes, even if she was ordinary, wasn’t it enough as long as she was not ordinary in Lu Beichen’s eyes?
Just then, someone muttered.
“Have you seen her? Gu family’s Fourth Young Mistress has arrived.”
“Gu family’s Fourth Young Mistress?”
“Which Fourth Young Mistress?”
“It’s the Fourth Young Mistress who doesn’t usually show herself. You haven’t seen anything yet. She’s exceptionally beautiful. It’s no wonder the Gu family has been so protective. If she showed her face every day, suitors would be lining up from B City to S City.”
Everyone looked over. Just then, Gu Jingyan entered in.
The strange thing was, she was not wearing anything special, just some sports attire.
Gu Jingyan’s didn’t mean to come without dressing up. It was just that she was dragged there by Boss Xu and the rest, so she did not have the time to change.
People relied on clothes, no doubt. But not for Gu Jingyan.
With only a sports attire on, Gu Jingyan’s slim figure in the sports attire exuded her youth.
Everyone looked at how Gu Jingyan had entered and started talking with their friends about it.
“Youth is really unbeatable. Attending a banquet barefaced.”
“Does she need to dress up? She’s the Gu family’s Fourth Young Mistress. Dressing up for you? You think too highly of yourself. Even if she doesn’t dress up, she still looks on point.”
“That’s right. Also, she looks good in sports attire. Unlike you who needs so much powder to cover your wrinkles.”
“Moreover, she’s the Gu family’s Fourth Young Mistress. She doesn’t have to live up to anyone’s reputation. She can come in whatever makes her comfortable. Who cares how you see her? No matter how you look at her, she doesn’t care. This is the high life.”
Gu Jingyan had not expected that she would not have the time. She only thought of coming over to have some fun. She did not care so much about others.
Fu Chenxi was speechless for a while. She stood there watching. Despite wearing a simple attire, Gu Jingyan ultimately became the hot topic.
This was the effect of a family’s background.
Fu Chenxi smiled bitterly. Seeing Gu Jingyan walking over, Lu Beichen asked, “I thought you weren’t coming?”
“It’s all because of them. They insisted on dragging me here.” Gu Jingyan answered.
Lu Beichen looked at the other two and said to Gu Jingyan, “Since you’re already here, have fun as much as you can. Let’s go. I’ll take you inside.”
Just then, Lu Chuxia came and saw that Gu Jingyan had arrived. She froze and not thinking little of Gu Jingyan in the slightest bit, she hurried over. “Sister Jingyan, you’re here.”
Gu Jingyan turned her head around. “Oh, Chuxia. I haven’t seen you for a long time.”
“Yeah, I’ve missed you. You don’t even come to our house to play.”
“You weren’t here when I visited.”
“Oh man, Sister Jingyan, this attire of yours is the latest right? I’ve seen celebrities wear it. It suits you perfectly, you look super slim.”
Gu Jingyan laughed. “Is that so? I don’t know anything.”
Lu Chuxia said, “You definitely don’t know. You focus on your studies every day but your family’s caretaker knows how to get it for you. My family’s caretaker can’t do it. Clueless about fashion and I even have to do it myself.”
Gu Jingyan smiled.
Fu Chenxi looked at Lu Chuxia from the back. She gritted her teeth. Was it because of Gu Jingyan’s affluent family? Why was she so popular?
Or was it no matter how she was, Lu Chuxia would still want to compliment her?
Fu Chenxi did not expect that everyone would be so eager to please Gu Jingyan. Was everyone that afraid of the Gu family?
Lu Beichen saw Lu Chuxia appear again and immediately pulled her aside. “Enough from you. Go out quickly if you’ve nothing to do. Why are you hovering over us?”
Lu Chuxia asked, “Why are you pulling me?”
Lu Beichen said, “You’ve complimented Gu Jingyan enough.”
Lu Chuxia said, “Why? I don’t admire anyone but Gu Jingyan. Look at her! She’s so dignified. She doesn’t need to dress up and she always looks so dignified. Also, she’s so good at studying. So hardworking and so knowledgeable. The Gu family has such good genes.”
Lu Beichen felt she was exaggerating but thinking about it, he could not deny the fact.
