Liu Feili seemed to feel all the injustice that Bai Suqing herself felt, immediately complaining to Huo Yalin. “Madam Ou, you should teach these girls a lesson. How can they so carelessly defame a person?”
Huo Yalin took a glance at Bai Suqing and asked, “Can someone explain it to me clearly? What happened here?”
Liu Feili was afraid of his sudden stage being stolen by others, so he was quick to reply, “Miss Bai here came justly through the main doors but they insist she had no invitation. They are obviously looking down on her.”
Huo Yalin couldn’t help but take a few more looks at Bai Suqing before coming to her own conclusion. This girl didn’t have a temperament suited to one of a wealthy family…
She maintained an amiable face, looking at Ou Kaicheng, “Son, why don’t you clear the air for this miss?”
“I didn’t give her an invitation,” Ou Kaicheng said frankly.
Suddenly it was silent all around. Soon after, disdainful gazes started to turn onto Bai Suqing. Even Liu Feili begam to feel ashamed.
At this moment, Bai Suqing raised up her tearful face and looked mournfully at Ou Kaicheng. “Did you really not give it to me?”
Ou Kaicheng glared daggers. “What is that supposed to mean? Do you think I wouldn’t know who did and didn’t receive an invitation?”
“B-But… Sister said you had given it for me…” Tears once again began to fall from her face, like she was greatly shocked.
What?! Translated by The Novelst
The people around them started to whisper amongst themselves.
Ou Kaicheng furrowed his brows. “What nonsense is that?”
Ou Kaicheng had indeed handed Mu Rulan an invitation, though she had already given him his present beforehand. It was clear she would not be attending the party, but he still gave her the card.
“I’m telling the truth. Sister gave me that invitation card…” said Bai Suqing.
Ou Kaicheng’s expression twisted; even the bystanders were surprised, eyes wide. But – Mu Rulan was their esteemed president. How could she be such a person? Could it be said that Mu Rulan had purposely mislead Bai Suqing, so that Bai Suqing would be accused here?
How was this possible? It had to be a joke, right?
Rewind to three hours ago.
Mu Rulan was still at Liu Silan when she received a call from Bai Suqing.
“Sister, is the thing on the desk for me?” Bai Suqing was browsing a clothing store.
“What thing?” Mu Rulan said, trying to think back. She didn’t remember leaving anything there.
“Sister, come on, the letter on the desk, it’s not for me?” Bai Suqing whined anxiously.
“Hehe… Whatever you think.”
The prey had jumped willingly into the hole. That idiot must have thought the thing on the desk was a love letter from the boy she’d had a good impression of, huh?
Bai Suqing had ended the call with a disdainful smile, before taking one of the latest dresses and going to the fitting room.
Fast forward to current time. Translated by The Novelst
Actually the mistake wouldn’t be a big deal if it had been just anyone, but since it was related to Mu Rulan, it was blown out of proportion.
“Hmmph! Very well! It looks like our Ou Family is unworthy to host Ke Wanqing’s daughter!” Huo Yalin smiled coldly, deliberately speaking loudly in front of the crowd in order to shame Ke Wanqing for the daughter she was most proud of.
Originally she had thought even if Ke Wanqing didn’t like her, Mu Rulan excelled in all she did and was a very likeable person. If she married into the Ou Family and brought along her reputation, all Huo Yalin had to do was make small adjustments to Mu Rulan in order to turn her into a likeable daughter-in-law.
Who would have thought that Mu Rulan had given her son’s invitation to an ordinary girl! If she hadn’t heard of this, she would even have thought her son was interested in a Cinderella!
“Mother, Mu Rulan isn’t that kind of person,” Ou Kaicheng send. Although he didn’t feel that this was right, he refused to believe even more that Mu Rulan would actually do such a thing.
Ou Kaicheng worried that there must have been a misunderstanding. He worried that Huo Yalin might be angry and forbid him from dating Mu Rulan in the future.
Bai Suqing looked at the angry woman before her, immediately knowing she had caused trouble. Her eyes filled with panic. “S-Sorry, I-I didn’t do it on purpose. It’s my fault, it has nothing to do with sister, it’s my fault…”
“Who would have thought that president Mu was actually this kind of person!” Liu Feili mumbled to himself. He didn’t dare say this loudly, especially since his cousin Liu Feiyang was one of Mu Rulan’s staunchest guardians in Senior Class 2F.
Although he wasn’t totally clear on what exactly had happened to Class F that year, since the media and police had sealed the news, he knew that Liu Feiyang was just like the other students in that class. If they heard even one word against Mu Rulan, they would definitely retaliate with a fist.
Bai Suqing felt proud inside. All she needed was a tiny misunderstanding and she would be able to splash Mu Rulan with filth, because…
Mu Rulan was too clean, so even the tiniest speck of dust would be magnified countless times in the eyes of the public.
However, at this moment, a ringtone sounded out in the quiet hall. The Ou Family butler picked up the phone and spoke, “Young master, it is Miss Mu.”
Ou Kaicheng took large steps to the butler, while Huo Yalin spoke even quicker, “Turn it on speakerphone!”
She wanted to see how this girl dared find excuses and explain this matter away before the public!
