301 Dinner With Noble Ladies
“Who can I invite? I have no friends at all in this world except you.”
Sitting in a chair nearby, Gu Bailu recalled her experience in this world in the last few months. She had been through many things, but had met few decent people.
It really wasn’t her fault. This world was simply crowded with snobs.
She suddenly missed Bu Yaolian.
That girl sincerely liked her and worshiped her like an idol.
Gu Bailu wondered how her classmates in Class H were doing after she left Cloud Mirror Academy – or if Cloud Mirror Academy still existed at all.
“My lady, you’re the princess. You can invite the noble ladies to visit you. They’ll have to please you. It’ll be fine,” said Ah Luo hopefully.
Those ladies had despised and slandered her lady, and it was time to get back at them.
“That’s a good idea.” Gu Bailu slapped her thigh and made the decision.
She would invite noble ladies to visit the vault, including Nan Ningxin…
It was time to make a try for the Night Lotus again.
Feng Qingtian couldn’t stick to her in a party of ladies, so he wouldn’t be able to stop her.
Gu Bailu asked Ye Ying to prepare the invitations and send them to the famous ladies and misses in the capital.
Everybody in Pale Emperor City talked about how Princess Zi had invited other people to appreciate the 9,999 Spring Harbingers.
“Is it really the 9,999 Spring Harbingers? Nobody has ever seen that.”
“It’s said that they’re the most fragile flowers and can steal your heart.”
“I’m told that they’re Prince Zi’s gift.”
“Prince Zi is really a good man. Princess Zi is lucky to be the only woman who can approach him.”
“I really want to see what the 9,999 Spring Harbingers look like.”
“Let’s pull some strings and see if any of the noble ladies can take us with them.”
“You think it’s for everyone? If any of the 9,999 Spring Harbingers dies, all of them will perish… If you accidentally damage any of the flowers, your whole family will be executed.”
A tall man in a cloak came to a tea stand and said, “I would like a bowl of tea.”
The gossiping women finally stopped and looked at him.
The man was in plain clothes and shoes, but he was obviously very powerful.
Intimidated, the women didn’t dare speak as loudly.
They whispered among themselves as they discussed who the man might be instead of the 9,999 Spring Harbingers.
After a bowl of tea, the man rose and asked in a low voice, “Where are the 9,999 Spring Harbingers that you mentioned?”
“In… in Prince Zi’s house…”
The man smiled and said, “Thanks.”
He dropped a big tael of gold as payment and left.
Several hours had passed by the time Feng Qingtian learned that Gu Bailu had invited ladies to his house.
He hurried to return and talk to Gu Bailu. “Lulu, the 9,999 Spring Harbingers are too precious to be appreciated by so many people.”
“Such beautiful flowers are supposed to be enjoyed by more people.”
Feng Qingtian tapped her head and said, “Those flowers are not meant to be enjoyed.”
“Then what are they meant for?”
What a shame it would be for the flowers to be kept a secret all the time!
“Forget it. Everybody in town already knows. It’s impossible to take back the invitations now. But please, discuss it with me first before you invite other people here. I don’t want any random person coming to my house.”
