Reborn Girl’s New Life - Chapter 621 - The Lu Family's Banquet Pt.2
Chapter 621 The Lu Family’s Banquet Pt.2
Saturday’s banquet came as scheduled.
Many famous ladies in Yuncheng went to the Lu Family to attend this banquet after receiving the invitation.
Gu Changle was no exception. Before leaving, she looked at her blue dress in the mirror with satisfaction, raising her lips slightly to show her beautiful smile.
Seeing Gu Changle smiling, Shao Tianze said, “You will be in the spotlight tonight.”
Gu Changle glanced at Shao Tianze, “Did you forget Song Yunxuan?”
Shao Tianze curled his brows and said nothing.
Indeed, compared with Gu Changle, Song Yunxuan was also an unstable factor.
Song Yunxuan looked beautiful, too. She was a great beauty who would shine in this banquet.
That was what Gu Changle was worried about.
Gu Changle pursed her lips and turned to look at Shao Tianze, “If Song Yunxuan competes with me for something, will you help me get rid of Song Yunxuan?”
Hearing Gu Changle’s words, Shao Tianze tightened his lips and said, “Of course.”
However, it was not as easy as imagined to remove Song Yunxuan.
If Song Yunxuan could have been easily removed, the Shao enterprise would not have had this crisis. And Shao Tianze would not have had to be so concerned about Lu Feng’s banquet.
Shao Tianze knew these things, and he thought that Gu Changle understood these.
He turned to look at Gu Changle, “Can you keep Lu Feng from having a good impression of Song Yunxuan?”
Hearing Shao Tianze’s words, Gu Changle couldn’t help but frown.
“If I do that, Lu Feng may crush on me. What will you do by then?”
Hearing what Gu Changle had said, Shao Tianze smiled and said, “No one can take you away from me.”
A woman would be moved after hearing such convincing words from a man. Gu Changle was happy with Shao Tianze’s words.
She liked that Shao Tianze showed strong possessiveness towards her. At least, it proved that Shao Tianze liked her. If Shao Tianze hadn’t had such a performance, she would have been distressed and she would feel that Shao Tianze did not like her.
With a smile, she walked towards Shao Tianze, stood on tiptoe, and kissed Shao Tianze. She looked at him with a smile, “Do you love me the most?”
“Of course.” Shao Tianze answered without hesitation.
Hearing such an answer, Gu Changle instantly became happier. She stretched out her hands to wrap Shao Tianze’s neck and continued to kiss him.
After Shao Tianze gave her a deep kiss, he suddenly remembered that it was time to go to the banquet.
Shao Tianze reminded Gu Changle, “The time for the banquet is coming. Shall we go?”
Hearing Shao Tianze’s reminder, Gu Changle smiled, “OK.”
She was the second lady of the Gu Family in Yuncheng. There was Gu Changge before. But no matter how good Gu Changge had been, she had died after all.
A dead person could not threaten her, let alone stand as a stumbling block on the road in front of her.
Now, she was the most envied woman in Yuncheng, with the background of Gu’s and Shao Tianze as her lover.
Which family’s daughter could compare to Gu Changle with all these she had now?
Thinking of these things she had, Gu Changle couldn’t help but smile more. On the way to the Lu Family, she kept wearing a happy smile.
Shao Tianze occasionally turned his head and glanced at Gu Changle. Seeing the smile on Gu Changle’s face, he believed Gu Changle was in a good mood.
He did not ask Gu Changle why she was so happy. With a little consideration, he guessed that Gu Changle believed she would be the most dazzling at the Lu Family’s dinner party.
No woman did not like to be sought after by everyone at a banquet.
Gu Changle naturally liked it.
When Shao Tianze and Gu Changle approached Lu’s house, they saw luxury cars sold in limited quantities worldwide driving into the Lu Family’s yard. What ostentation and extravagance!
Seeing such a scene, Gu Changle frowned slightly, “What a great pomp! What’s Lu Feng’s backing?”
“We will know his background after going in and taking a look.”
Shao Tianze and Gu Changle saw their car was stopped by a security guard. The guard beckoned them to lower the car window and asked politely and rigorously, “May I see your invitations?”
Hearing the guard’s question, Shao Tianze asked the driver to show him the invitation.
After receiving the invitation and verifying it, the security guard politely said to Shao Tianze, “Please come in.”
Although he said this, he did not let the vehicle go.
Gu Changle was confused. However, after seeing that the people in front all got off the car and walked in, she could not object. She had to get off the car with Shao Tianze and walk towards the house.
There was a long way from the gate to the main hall. Ladies lived in clover.
Even Gu Changle felt it was hard to walk in like this. She turned her head to look at Shao Tianze bitterly, complaining, “What is the owner of the Lu Family thinking? Why does he want us to walk in? It will be great to drive in, saving time and effort.”
“Stop complaining. It won’t be good to be heard by others.”
Shao Tianze reminded Gu Changle.
Gu Changle didn’t care at all and still said, “I’m not the only one complaining. Look. The woman over there is also complaining.”
Gu Changle looked sideways at a young lady in a white fishtail dress next to her.
The lady’s makeup and dress could show how elaborate her preparation for today’s banquet was.
With such beautiful makeup, the lady had thought she could go directly from the car to the main hall, entering by stepping on a red carpet. She did not expect to get out of the car when she arrived at the door.
That was really surprising.
The young lady in a white fishtail dress couldn’t help but complain, “After walking all the way, my feet will be sore.”
“It doesn’t matter if your feet are sore. The owner of the Lu Family likes this. What can you do?”
Hearing her complaint, other ladies also started to grumble.
“I would not come to this banquet if I knew this. I heard that the owner of the Lu Family is a lame man.”
“Yes. He has been in a wheelchair.”
“He is such a lame person. I can’t believe my father asked me to dress up and attend this banquet, taking it seriously.”
A girl in a purple dress said dissatisfiedly, “What’s the use of dressing up? To make the cripple take a fancy to me?”
These words made the girls’ expressions subtle.
They were all from ancient business families. Even if they were not from business families that had existed for decades, they were in the business world. With their family background, they had unconsciously learned the business interests and benefits since they were young. They naturally knew the meaning of attending the banquet this time.
Only the girl in the purple dress said bluntly, “Even if that lame man falls in love with me, I will never marry him. I am so young. If I marry the lame, my future will become miserable. Probably, he not only has a lame leg, but his lower body is also not good.”
Hearing what the girl said, the other girls covered their mouths and laughed.
Hearing their conversation, Gu Changle also chuckled. She whispered to Shao Tianze, “Do you think Lu Feng wants a pie in the sky? As a lame person, he wants to marry a proper young lady by showing off his family background.”
Shao Tianze didn’t comment. He only said to Gu Changle, “Don’t talk nonsense with these ignorant women.”
Being criticized by Shao Tianze, Gu Changle felt unhappy, “They are telling the truth, not rumor. You also said that Lu Feng has a lame leg.”
“No matter whether Lu Feng is lame or not, if we can get his help this time, it will be great. I will strive for it.”
Gu Changle looked at Shao Tianze with displeasure, “Would you send me to Lu Feng to get his help?”
Shao Tianze was displeased and said, “What nonsense are you talking about?”
Seeing that Shao Tianze was really angry, Gu Changle laughed. She took Shao Tianze’s arm and tenderly said, “I know you will never send me to anyone.”
Shao Tianze was slightly startled when he heard what Gu Changle said. After that, he became silent immediately and did not speak anymore.
He would not send Gu Changle to anyone, would he?
That was Gu Changle’s opinion. She was sure about it. However, he was not certain.
If Lu Feng liked and took a fancy to Gu Changle, what would be Shao Tianze’s choice?
Would he send Gu Changle to Lu Feng in exchange for the Lu Family’s help?
Or would he offend Lu Feng openly for Gu Changle?
Shao Tianze didn’t know what choice he would make.
After thinking for a while, he held Gu Changle’s fingers tightly, “You must follow me.”
Hearing Shao Tianze’s words, Gu Changle was happy in her heart but did not show it on her face.
She only said, “Then you must hold on to me.”
Shao Tianze nodded, “I will.”
That was true. He would hold Gu Changle tightly because there was no Gu Changge anymore.
Only Gu Changle was by his side. If he didn’t try to catch Gu Changle, who else could he catch?
And he did so much to make Gu Changle survive.
If he didn’t hold Gu Changle tightly, all the things he had done would be in vain.
