New Chapter: Luoyang Brocade Ch. 5 Part 1
Chapter 5, Part 1: Thought
Ling Jing Xian’s tenderness was interrupted and her smile became awkward and stiff.
She did not know how to continue her words.
After Ling Jing Shu saw her reaction, she became even more sure of her thoughts, and she felt that Ling Jing Xian was selfish and ridiculous. She did not bother to go round the bush with her and said straightforwardly, “There are only two of us here, if you have anything just say it out.”
Ling Jing Xian blushed with embarrassment.
Ling Jing Shu raised her eyebrows and looked at Ling Jing Xian with a fake smile.
With her understanding towards Ling Jing Xian, since she already came here, whatever she was calculating in her heart would be said out anyway.
Unsurprisingly, Ling Jing Xian who was stunned for a long time finally said her request with a thick face,” Cousin Shu, I like Cousin Hong. After grandmother’s birthday is over, I will beg my mother to secretly approach Aunt to talk about the marriage. Can you please don’t snatch with me over Cousin Hong?”
There were many cousin sisters in Ling Residence. The most beautiful one was the fifth family’s ninth miss. Those who had good deeds had secretly sealed a title on Ling Jing Shu as ‘Ding Province Number One Beauty’.
Ling Jing Xian and Ling Jing Shu’s age were very close, and they were often being used for comparison. The most commonly heard was, “Eighth Miss of your family is born very beautiful, but Ninth Miss is much prettier.”
“Heard that Ninth Miss is very good at nurturing peony. Most of the famous peony in Ling Residence’s peony garden was planted by her.”
“Don’t know which family is so fortunate to be able to marry Ninth Ling Miss.”
Ling Jing Shu, Ling Jing Shu, it was always about Ling Jing Shu.
As long as Ling Jing Shu was around, Ling Jing Xian would become one green leaf that was not eye-catching. She hated it in her heart yet she couldn’t help it. So on usual days, she would crack her brain to find ways to surpass Ling Jing Shu.
This time Lu Family came to visit and she fell in love with Lu Hong at first sight. She secretly vowed that she would not marry any other guy other than him. Although she was not willing to admit it, she was very clear that once Ling Jing Shu appeared, she was afraid that Lu Hong would be attracted to Ling Jing Shu, that was why she came up with this idea.
She had to show her thought first.
Ling Jing Shu knew her thoughts, naturally she wanted to keep a distant from Lu Hong.
Ling Jing Shu was not angry and she laughed, “Cousin Xian’s words is really ridiculous. I have been staying in Qiu Shui Pavilion for these few days, I have never seen this Lu cousin before. How did the “snatch” word come about? Moreover, you like who, want to marry who, that is your business, what has it got to do with me? If you come to look for me because of this, then it is really ridiculous.”
Every sentence she said was very sharp and ruthless.
Ling Jing Xian was choked until she couldn’t speak.
This cousin had always been warm and gentle, occasionally she would suffered some sorrow and dare not speak up, that was why she would come over with a thick skin and came out with such unreasonable demand. She did not expect that Ling Jing Shu’s reaction would be so strong and cold.
Ling Jing Shu said coldly, “Cousin Xian, if there is nothing else, then you may leave now.” She chased her out ruthlessly.
Ling Jing Xian disregard being a embarrassment and hold Ling Jing Shu’s hand, pleaded softly, “It was my bad just now, I did not speak properly and made you unhappy. I apologise to you, please don’t be angry, alright?”
“However, I did not lie to you just now, the words i said were from my heart. We two are sisters for so many years, I have never asked anything from you before. Can you please promise me this time, as long as you are far away from Cousin Hong, do not care about him, that is considered helping me already.”
Talking to own self, so opinionated.
Why did she think that she would agree to such selfish request?
Ling Jing Shu was about to reject her but then something flashed through her mind.
In this life time, she was not willing to have any involvement with Lu Hong, so why not give some “assistance” to Ling Jing Shu?
No, this was not appropriate.
Even though the both of them did not have good impression of each other, they were after all still cousins, there was no deep hatred. Since she knew Lu Family was a fire pit, she should not just sit and watch Ling Jing Xian jump into it, she couldn’t bear to do that.
This short hesitant allowed Ling Jing Xian seized an opportunity.
Ling Jing Xian’s eyes flashed with joy and relief and she clenched Ling Jing Shu’s hand, “Cousin Shu, you don’t reply me, I will take it as you have agreed to it.”
Ling Jing Shu raised her eyebrows, “When did I agreed to it?”
“If my wish come true in the future, I will not forget your kindness today.” Ling Jing Xian turned a blind eye to Ling Jing Shu’s words and said quickly, “I have been here for so long, I should go back. Cousin Shu should rest properly as well. Tomorrow morning I will come over and we can go greet grandmother together.”
After that, she hurriedly got up and left.
Ling Jing Shu, “…”
After Ling Jing Xian left, Bai Yu quickly came in. When she saw Ling Jing Shu’s unpleasant face, she immediately asked with concern, “What did Eighth Miss said to you?”
Ling Jing Shu couldn’t helped but talked unhappily, “I don’t know what she want, I don’t bother to care about her.”
Bai Yu became confused.
Ling Jing Shu explained in a more simpler way, “Cousin Xian fell in love with Lu Family Cousin at first sight. Today she come to plead me, asked me to stay away from him.”
Bai Yu, “…”
Bai Yu’s face showed anger look, “How can Eighth Miss say such thing, it really is too much.”
How can there be such logic in this world.
Don’t say that Miss had not seen Lu Family’s young master, there was nothing to be said. Even if they had met and Master Lu fell in love with Miss, Miss should give Master Lu to Eighth Miss? Or if such thing happen, she want to blame it on Miss?
Ling Jing Shu was a bit angry initially, but after looking Bai Yu who was getting angry for herself, that anger quickly dissipate, “Never mind about it, it is just a small issue, it is not worth being angry about it.”
After a pause, she said faintly, “In fact, even if she doesn’t say it, I will also keep a distant away from Lu Young Master.”
She hoped that in this life time, they would forever be strangers.
Ling Jing Shu slightly squinted her eyes to cover up all her emotions.
