王爺你好賤 16 – Engagement gathering (ii)

16

Zhu WuXin let Xiao Liao wrapped several layers of bandages around her body, only after that she propped herself up. Both of them climb out over the wall, they went before the break of dawn.

“Wah kao, these people really don’t need to sleep!”

At first, Zhu WuXin thought they are the earliest one to be there, unexpectedly, there are actually a lot of young men and young ladies arrived earlier than them. So early already ‘keeping guard’ outside the entrance of the gathering venue.

Xiao Lian supported Zhu WuXin at her arm and walked to the corner of the road. They waited until the door of the venue opened, after all the people flocked in, then slowly walked inside.

At this point, the two Miss from Zhu House have already dressed properly to the occasion and set out.

“Miss, let us go to the side and wait.” Xiao Lian said and supported Zhu WuXin to the edge of the venue.

But the amount of people who came to attend the gathering was too much, inevitably some will bumped at WuXin. WuXin can’t flare out in anger, only can let Xiao Lian lead her to a quiet place and waited there. Relying on Xiao Lian to wait for the food to be taken out, then bring some over to her.

The biggest advantage in this marriage matching gathering was, both men and women basically ate nothing in order to take care of their image. This make Zhu WuXin and Xiao Lian very happy. Nobody ate the food, that’s the best.

“Xiao Lian, look for food! GO! GO! GO!” The moment Zhu WuXin went inside, she started ordering Xiao Lian around.

[Translator note : Yes, the author wrote that GO! x3 in English.]

Finally, Xiao Lian brought over a variety of fruits and desserts over, sat together with Zhu WuXin on the stone bench by a stream, eating slowly. The two who had endured hunger for one night, almost swept clean all the food prepared in the venue. In the end, if not for Zhu WuXin letting Xiao Lian ate a bit of everything, thinking perhaps there will be different food choices later on, these two person would be predicted bloated to death.

The sun slowly rose from the east to the sky. The marriage gathering also reaching the peak.

She let Xiao Lian wait for her at the gathering, if WuXin saw any gentlemen that she liked, then she can try to develop some feelings. If there’s none, then she’ll just eat whatever available to eat. While she sat at a side, eating a sweet-scented osmanthus cake quietly, casually humming a note. But not so long after some peaceful moments, a group of ladies noisily jesting with each other, walked towards her direction. Zhu WuXin didn’t even spare them a glance, continued eating the pastry in her hand.

The ladies announced loudly and noisily that they wanted to play throwing sandbags.[1] After spending a great effort to stand up, Zhu WuXin shifted from her original stone bench to another piece of boulder with a considerable distance away from them. But when the ladies’ sandbag contest started, Zhu WuXin’s patience has reached the limit.

What kind of people throw sandbag, every time also managed to accurately hit her back, even though she was so far away? Furthermore, what done is done, they don’t even offer any apologies to her. As if she is really happy to get hit. The moment the sandbag was thrown at her back for the seventh time, she completely lost it.

She turned around to pick up the sandbag, then threw it into the stream beside her. Among the screaming girls, Zhu WuXin can clearly see Zhu JiXiang and Zhu JiLan gloating at her mistreatment by the side. Zhu WuXin pushed herself up to stand, wanting to leave, a loud resounding slap “Pa!” was heard, her cheek was hit by a palm.
