New Chapter: Luoyang Brocade Ch. 4 Part 2

Chapter 4, Part 2: Cordial

Ling Jing Xian walked in with a brisk pace, laughing and yelling Cousin Shu.

Today’s Ling Jing Xian, wearing a goose-yellow dress, put on a thin make up, glowing and charming. A pair of eyes shone with a strange look.

Ling Jing Shu smiled sarcastically.

When a girl’s love was first opened, almost all the joy was written on her face like herself in her past life, but it also looked kind of stupid.

They had always been at odds, and it was obvious that she had ulterior motives to visit her today.

Not surprisingly, Ling Jing Xian after chatted for a few moments, quickly brought the topic to Lu Cousin, “Cousin Shu, you have been in your room for a few days, you have not met Cousin Hong right?”

Cousin Hong, called until so intimate.

Ling Jing Shu side of the lips pulled a little, but there was no smile in her eyes. She casually said, “Why are you asking such an obvious thing? I have not seen him before. How come Cousin Xian will suddenly mention about him? Is there something wrong with him?”

Ling Jing Xian bit her lips and a faint red rose on her face, “There’s nothing wrong with him, it’s just… it’s just…”

She ‘It’s just’ for a long time and did not say any other words.

Ling Jing Shu looked at Ling Jing Xian’s pretense with cold eyes.

In her previous life, when Lu Family came to Ling Residence, she followed everyone to welcome them. After that, she and Lu Hong fell in love at first sight. Lu Hong’s eyes only had her, no other people could enter his heart. Although Ling Jing Xian also liked him, he never liked her. Ling Jing Xian could only watched the both of them fell in love and got together.

Lu Hong asked Madam Ling to help him asked for marriage. Madam Ling was his stepmother, their relationship was not cold and not hot. Lu Hong fell in love with her niece, Madam Ling naturally was pleased with this and she soon proposed marriage to Old Madam Ling.

Old Madam Ling agreed without much hesitation.

Lu Family was a famous family in Big Zhou, Ling Family although wasn’t bad, but compared with Lu Family, Lu Family definitely was better. When Madam Ling married into Lu Family, she was just a successor to the first wife. Lu Family’s first legitimate son wanted to marry Ling’s granddaughter as his wife, Ling Family of course would agree to it.

What’s more, Lu Hong was young and handsome, talented and a gentleman. Standing with Ling Jing Shu, they looked very matching, it would never humiliate Ling Jing Shu. Moreover, Ling Jing Shu married to Lu Family, her mother-in-law was her aunt who was a close relative, she would not be harsh on her.

Old Madam Ling still had some selfishness that she did not disclose to outsider. Madam Ling married far away, and she was a successor wife, her relationship with her step son was also quite cold, it was a hidden danger. If her niece become her daughter-in-law, in future she would definitely stand on Madam Ling’s side. Madam Ling would be able to handle things much smoother in Lu Family.

Old Madam Ling decided on the marriage, Fifth Ling Master was quite satisfied with Lu Family and he was appreciative of Lu Hong’s literary talents, so he also agreed to it.

At that time, who would have thought that the “Golden Couple” that everyone praised would fall to such an ending.

Thoughts were running a little freely, and getting a little further.

As of now, this life time, she had always avoided appearing. Lu Hong had not met her yet, so naturally there was no talks about them being love at first sight. The person who saw Lu Hong first was Ling Jing Xian.

She probably had guessed Ling Jing Xian’s motive.

Ling Jing Xian took a moment and finally got the courage to say, “Cousin Shu, I have something important to say to you.”

Ling Jing Shu put a fake smile on her face and glanced at Ling Jing Xian, that stare let Ling Jing Xian feel guilty and she subconsciously lowered her head.

“Bai Yu, and the rest of you, retreat first. Without my instruction, you are not allowed to come in.” Ling Jing Shu faintly instructed them.

Maid servants were quickly retreated outside.

In the room it was only left with Ling Jing Shu and Ling Jing Xian.

Ling Jing Shu looked at her and said, “Cousin Xian, what do you actually want to say? You can say it now.”

Ling Jing Xian blushed and said softly, “Cousin Shu, I will turn fifteen this May.”

When one girl reached fifteen years old, she would be at marriageable age.

Ling Jing Shu’s eyes flashed slightly and said coldly, “Cousin Xian, did you fall in love with Cousin Hong?”

Ling Jing Xian, “…”

She was stunned for being exposed. Even if she had motives, she was still a young girl and her face suddenly blushed. She did not deny it.

After a long while, Ling Jing Xian whispered, “Cousin Shu, I am not afraid that you will laugh at me. These two years, I had followed mother out for visits, and met quite a number of young guys. I have never fell in love with any of them. Three days ago, when I first set my eyes on Cousin Hong, I fell in love with him.”

“He looked handsome like a jade, just like the moon in the sky. When he smiled at me, my heart almost jumped out of my chest. These few days, I am thinking of him all the time.”

Listening to Ling Jing Xian’s words, it was as if she saw the previous silly self.

Ling Jing Shu’s mood became somewhat unstable, and she impatiently interrupted her, “Cousin Xian like Cousin Hong, you should quietly tell your mother to let her make this marriage happen. What can I do for you by telling me these?”
