New Chapter: Luoyang Brocade Ch. 7 Part 2
Chapter 7, Part 2: Lu Hong
Ling Residence’s inner house was not for anyone to enter. Although it was a unfamiliar face, yet he was able to walk inside here, it was obviously Lu Family’s young master, Lu Hong.
The teenager was about fifteen or sixteen years old. He was slender and dressed in light blue brocade. His eyebrows were thick and straight like a sword, his nose was straight, his complexion was clear as jade.
Ling Xiao was also born with good complexion, but compared with this teenager in front of her, his look lack of quick intelligence and soft refinement.
It’s no wonder that Ling Jing Xian would not care about being embarrassed and would come to beg her for help. This young master was really a beautiful teenager.
Bai Yu’s heart secretly admired, but when her eyes fell on Ling Jing Shu’s face, she couldn’t help but feel shocked.
She looked stiff and her eyes were cold. It’s not like seeing an important guest, it’s more like meeting an enemy.
“Bai Yu, let’s go!” Ling Jing Shu forced herself to hang her head low, her tone was light so no one could hear any difference.
Bai Yu was hesitant and said lowly, “Miss, since already see each other, it’s best to say hello! If just leave like that, it will seems a little rude.”
Any visitor was a guest. What’s more, this young master was Lu Family’s big young master, his status was honorable. They should give some face to Madam Ling, and should not be impolite towards him. Otherwise, if Old Madam Ling knows about this, she would definitely be unhappy.
These words, Bai Yu do not need to say, Ling Jing Shu was also well aware.
With this hesitation, Lu Hong had already come over here.
Even if she wanted to avoid, also cannot avoid already!
Ling Jing Shu calmed herself, looked up and across.
Lu Hong’s appearance was excellent, and his temperament was outstanding. When he walked, it was neither too fast nor too slow, looked very handsome.
It was this grace that had captivated the princess of the Great Zhou Dynasty. She was willing to risk her reputation of snatching other people’s husband and make him stay in her princess palace.
“I have seen two cousins of Ling Residence but I have not seen you before. You must be Cousin Shu of the fifth family!” Lu Hong stopped at two meters away, held his fists in both hands, and gave a same generation salute, “My surname is Lu, single name is Hong. You can call me Cousin Hong.”
Gentle and courteous. His manners were good, impeccable.
In contrast, Ling Jing Shu’s reaction was much colder. She returned the greeting very casually,” It turned out to be Lu Family’s Cousin.”
The reluctantness and perfunctory on her face could be seen clearly.
Lu Hong touched a soft nail but he did not get angry. His slightly eager eyes fixed on the pretty face of Ling Jing Shu’s, “My younger brother and I followed our mother to Ling Residence as guest. We heard that Cousin Shu was sick, and we couldn’t meet you. Today finally I get to meet you Cousin Shu.”
While talking, he was secretly annoyed in his heart.
He actually wasted three days?
He should have visited her on the first day of arrival, so that he could meet her earlier.
That familiar eyes made Ling Jing Shu’s forcefully suppressed hatred and resentment started to boil again.
Day after day of waiting, day after day of despair, struggling with endless humiliation and pain. She was waiting day and night for his return, to save her from the fire pit. But what had her waiting was news of him betraying her, embracing another woman.
How much she had once loved him, in the end it would be how much she would hate him.
How could she possibly deal with him as though nothing had happened?
She so hoped that she had a sharp dagger in her hand right now and stab it right into his chest!
Lu Hong was immersed in the happiness, so for a moment he did not notice the silence of Ling Jing Shu. He said with a smile, “On the first day we arrived, I heard grandmother talked about you. I heard that you are very skilled in cultivating famous peony, you have even cultivated out the multi-colored peony. Today I went to home school to listen. After eating lunch, there is one hour of rest time so I decided to come to the garden for a walk. I didn’t expect to meet you here.”
Lu Hong waited for a moment but he didn’t get any respond from Ling Jing Shu. He finally noticed something was wrong. He then greeted Ling Jing Shu’s cold and hostile eyes, and his heart became more and more puzzled.
The two of them met for the first time. He was well-behaved and did not dare to be rude to a young lady. Why her attitude was so bad?
“Cousin Shu,” Lu Hong suppressed his confusion deep into his heart and tried his best to show his gentle side, “I liked peony since young, Lu Residence also planted a lot of famous peony, but this complex color peony is not easy to plant. May I ask from Cousin Shu about some pointers?”
After a single pointer, he would ask for the second one with a thick face.
Ling Jing Shu rejected with a poker face, “This is my unique secret art, I will never passed it to someone else.”
Lu Hong, “…”
The smile on Lu Hong’s face froze.
He had met many young girls. Some were shy, some were dignified and polite, some were more courageous, would send him autumn waves.
It’s the first time in his life that he initiated to approach a young lady but wasn’t appreciated.
He felt awkward, embarrassed, angry, annoyed and wanted to go but he couldn’t move his legs.
All kinds of complicated emotions were intertwined, letting the unyielding Lu Family young master stand on the spot and did not know what to do.
Ling Jing Shu finally vented one part of her anger. She felt happy in her heart and faintly said, “Bai Yu, let’s go back.”
After saying this, she didn’t look at Lu Hong’s eyes and walked pass his side.
Bai Yu bowed and chased after her.
Only left Lu Hong standing in the same spot, watching the beautiful yet indifferent figure walked away.
