Chapter 1193 The Invitation to the Blind Date Banquet
Shao Wanru didn’t wait long. Coincidentally, Zhao Xiran sent someone to tell her that Old Madam was in poor health.
Although Old Madam had done a lot of bad things to Shao Wanru, which was known by the people in the capital city, Shao Wanru had to go to Marquis Xing’s Mansion to see her because of her filial piety.
Judging from the message, it seemed that Old Madam was dying.
Even though this elder had treated Shao Wanru badly, disliked her, and never took her seriously, she was still her biological grandmother. Shao Wanru had to go to see her.
Shao Jing firmly believed this, and Shao Wanru was also aware of it.
No matter how fierce the conflict between her and Old Madam was, she had to pay a visit to her at this time.
Of course, Shao Wanru didn’t take the message of Old Madam dying seriously. Old Madam was extremely selfish, so it wouldn’t be a problem for her to live for a few more years. Whenever there was something wrong with her, she would make a scene and make everyone know it, as if others treated her badly.
Of course, she was going to make trouble for Shao Wanru now.
This was not only Old Madam’s idea, but also Shao Jing’s. It came at the right time.
Chu Liuchen had been staying in Shao Wanru’s courtyard recently. Although Prince Chen kept flirting with her until he sweated and had to take a cold shower, he still enjoyed it. When he couldn’t stand it anymore, he would adjust himself and come back to do it again after staying in the study for a few nights. He said that it was Shao Wanru’s birthday soon, and she was about to turn mature.
Every time Chu Liuchen said dirty words like that, Shao Wanru would blush. She wondered if he could get even more perverted. She couldn’t stand him expressing his desire so eagerly. However, he said such words with a gentle and elegant face, as if he were a gentleman.
Seeing Shao Wanru blus.h.i.+ng, he would mess with her again, which made her always want to slap him. “How can he act like this?”
Qin Yiyan was very close to Shao Wanru now and came to see her from time to time. Although she still talked very aggressively and showed that she was the most suitable person to protect her cousin, she was very fl.u.s.tered in front of Chu Liuchen. When she saw Chu Liuchen coming from a distance, she hurried back, for fear that her cousin would scold her again.
She finally saw clearly that this cousin was really gentle only in front of her cousin-in-law. At other times, he was just a handsome man who was gentle on the surface. He was ruthless and would never show mercy to women. Even if she was his cousin, he would still be ruthless to her. It was better for her to please her cousin-in-law than to please him.
Of course, she just couldn’t bear to see her cousin-in-law win her cousin’s favor. “Why can’t it be me? If it were me, I would definitely protect him. Cousin-in-law is so weak and useless that she’s not as good as me.”
Of course, Qin Yiyan merely kept these ideas in her mind. Consort Lan had said that this matter was settled, so it was useless to think about it anymore.
In fact, Qin Yiyan also understood that her years of hard work were really in vain, but her cousin didn’t appreciate her feelings for him. Just thinking about it made her feel aggrieved.
Sure enough, those who looked gentle and elegant on the surface were not good people. They were not as good as those who were straightforward. For example, Ancheng, who was in front of her cousin, was not bad. He looked handsome and straightforward. He did not beat around the bush and would not plot against her with a fake smile. Thinking of this, Qin Yiyan became less depressed.
What made her happy was that she also received an invitation from the Mansion of the Prime Minister.
After arriving in the capital city, she had not received any invitations. After entering Prince Chen’s Mansion, she had always kept a low profile and had never appeared in front of anyone. Except for occasionally going to the Palace to see Consort Lan, she spent the rest of her time embroidering and chatting in Prince Chen’s Mansion.
Qin Yiyan felt so bored.
It was rare to have such an opportunity to go out. It was a good opportunity to enjoy the scenery and relax.
Shao Wanru glanced at the gold-plated invitation card a few times, smiled, and raised her watery eyes slightly. In fact, she was not opposed to Qin Wanru going to the Mansion of the Prime Minister.
Actually, Qin Yiyan was very simple and not a really bad person. Wen Xichi was not bad either. It would be nice if she could be with Wen Xichi.
The Mansion of the Prime Minister was going to hold a blind date banquet. Madam Wen got the news about Qin Yiyan from someone and invited her there. It seemed that she was also very interested in Qin Yiyan.
In Shao Wanru’s last life, Madam Wen had left a bad impression on Shao Wanru and could even be said to be disgusted with her. She was so partial to Gu Xishu that it was almost outrageous. Because of a few words from Gu Xishu, she said that Shao Wanru had behaved improperly and driven her out of the Mansion of the Prime Minister. At that time, Shao Wanru was alone and had nowhere to go. After she was driven out of the mansion, she got into a bad situation and even ended up miserably.
“However, Qin Yiyan is not me, and Gu Xishu is no longer the same as she used to be. Qin Yiyan, who is backed by Prince Chen’s Mansion, looks weak, but in fact, she is not easy to deal with. Even if Gu Xishu fought against her in my last life, she might not necessarily win, not to mention that Gu Xishu in this life is no longer the same.
“Qin Yiyan is different from me in my last life. I had no one to rely on, and my reputation had not been ruined back then. Madam Wen allowed me to marry into Mansion of the Prime Minister to counteract bad luck at that time. Since Qin Yiyan failed to counteract bad luck, she might have intended to drive her away for a long time.
“Many things have changed because of my rebirth.”
Shao Wanru looked at the date and said with a smile, “You can go to get to know other Misses from aristocratic families in the capital city.”
Coincidentally, the day after tomorrow was the day after she went to Marquis Xing’s Mansion. Although the invitation card from the Mansion of the Prime Minister was meant to be delivered to Qin Yiyan, as an unmarried Miss, she certainly could not go alone. Shao Wanru, her cousin-in-law, was supposed to go with her.
Shao Wanru was also invited by Madam Wen.
“There is indeed nothing fun to do in the mansion. It’s good to go out and experience different things. I haven’t been to other places since I came to the capital city.” Qin Yiyan was a little tempted.
Shao Wanru put down the invitation card, looked at Qin Yiyan, and said with a smile, “I’ll ask someone to prepare clothes for you. If there’s not enough time, you will take ready-made clothes directly. If they don’t fit you so well, just ask someone to modify them a little.”
Qin Yiyan shook her head and said indifferently, “No need for that, Cousin-in-law. When I followed Consort Lan before, she asked her servants to make a lot of clothes for me. After I entered the Prince’s Mansion, you also asked someone to make some for me. I haven’t worn many of them yet.” Since she called Shao Wanru “cousin-in-law” for the first time, she didn’t think that she couldn’t call a younger person her cousin-in-law.
“It’s a banquet after all. You should dress up more beautifully!” Shao Wanru said with a smile.
“I don’t need to be too beautiful. I’m just like this anyway.” Qin Yiyan tugged at the corner of her clothes and did not take it to heart.
Compared with ordinary Misses from aristocratic families, she was much more generous and straightforward.
Shao Wanru smiled. Of course, she didn’t tell Qin Yiyan that it was actually a disguised blind date banquet. In fact, Wen Xichi and Qin Yiyan were quite suitable for each other. One was gentle and elegant, while the other was straightforward and generous.
“Didn’t you get good clothes from b.u.t.terfly Clothing Shop last time? I happen to have new clothes ready, and they are the new ones this year. How about a few sets for you?” Shao Wanru asked with a smile.
No girl didn’t like beautiful clothes. Even if Qin Yiyan didn’t think it was necessary, she was a little tempted at this time. She had seen one of Shao Wanru’s sets of clothes before. Not only was it gorgeous, but also the embroidery and toggle-and-loop b.u.t.tons were different from ordinary clothes. At that time, she felt that she liked it very much and praised it casually. Unexpectedly, Shao Wanru remembered it.
Qin Yiyan was inexplicably moved and felt that the young cousin-in-law in front of her was actually capable.
“Well… okay!” Qin Yiyan thought for a moment and felt that she really wanted those clothes, so she did not refuse.
The clothes from b.u.t.terfly Clothing Shop were delivered in the afternoon. Madame Dong came here alone with two embroidered maids. If the clothes didn’t fit Qin Yiyan well, the maids could modify them directly.
Qin Yiyan’s eyes lit up when she saw the clothes sent by b.u.t.terfly Clothing Shop. She reached out to touch them and loved them so much that she couldn’t bear to put them down. Every one of them was very beautiful and she liked them.
Seeing that she couldn’t bear to give up any one of them, Shao Wanru smiled and simply waved her hand. “Since you like them, keep them all!”
“I can’t. I don’t need so many clothes. I’ll take this one!” Qin Yiyan shook her head. Although she liked those clothes, she didn’t necessarily need all of them.
Shao Wanru rolled her eyes and said with a faint smile, “These are also very beautiful. b.u.t.terfly Clothing Shop has made a lot of clothes this time.”
“Thank you, but no. These are too much for me. One shall be enough. I don’t need to wear fancy clothes all the time. It won’t be comfortable,” Qin Yiyan said.
Her words made Shao Wanru smile more brightly. She understood what Qin Yiyan meant. Such clothes must be worn with a straight back. After getting familiar with Qin Yiyan’s character, Shao Wanru found that she was actually very carefree and sometimes practiced in her courtyard. She thought it troublesome to wear such complicated dresses.
Since Qin Yiyan had made her choice, Shao Wanru did not force her. She asked the maids to modify the dress Qin Yiyan picked a little, and the dress seemed to be specially tailored for her.
Qin Yiyan left happily with her servant girl.
Madame Dong also returned to b.u.t.terfly Clothing Shop with her people. The room became quiet. As Shao Wanru looked at the sun outside the window, her eyes became cold.
Tomorrow was the day to go to Marquis Xing’s Mansion. She had been looking forward to this day for a long time.
Some things were engraved in her bones and constantly reminded her of the tragedy of her last life. She had to take revenge for those things in the end.
The next day, when Shao Wanru got up, Chu Liuchen had already returned from the imperial court. Yesterday, he knew that she was going to Marquis Xing’s Mansion today, so he would go with her no matter what.
Shao Wanru didn’t want him to go with her at first, but Chu Liuchen said that if he didn’t go, Shao Wanru couldn’t go either. She had to follow him helplessly.
The carriage went to the Marquis Xing’s Mansion. In the carriage, Shao Wanru leaned against Chu Liuchen’s chest with her eyes slightly closed. She looked calm, but in fact, she had been uneasy.
She kept thinking about what roles Marquis Xing’s Mansion, Shao Jing, Madam Jiang, Old Madam, and the third branch played respectively in the tragic situation of her parents.
