Going Back Home (Part 2)
The craziness from last night did not affect Murong Shu Qing at all, she could have a good sleep for the whole night. Lu Yi did not forced her to get up today, so she slept through the time to pay respect. Stretching lazily, Murong Shu Qing secretly sighed, let it be, everyone said that Miss Murong was always willful and reckless, then she would just borrow her manner today by lacking in manners. But she wanted to think of a way to avoid this rule, then it would be good.
Lu Yi brought in the water and after she gave it to her to freshen up, she took out a gold invitation, and handed it in front of her, then said: “Miss, your invitation.”
“Mine?” Murong Shu Qing was puzzled, she should not have any friends at the Capital, if it was a business dinner party, it would not be delivered directly to the Qi’s family. Taking the invitation, she opened it, the impressive inscriptions showed two words,
Xuanyuan’s manor. She scanned on the content, and unexpectedly found out that she was invited to dine at the manor tonight, so she lightly and lowly mumbled: “Xuanyuan’s Family?” Would there be Xuanyuan Yi?
“When did they deliver it?”
Lu Yi was taking care of her long hair, and she answered: “Early morning today, the family servant who delivered it, is still waiting for your reply.”
Early in the morning today, could it be that Xuanyuan Yi also recognized her last night?
“Let him come in, I want to see him.”
“Yes.” Lu Yi left the inner room.
Not long after, Lu Yi brought along a blue dress man to come in, the man had a childish face, it seemed that he was not yet 20 years old. But he was calm and reasonable, seeing Murong Shu Qing, he bowed and saluted: “This small person greets Miss.”
Indicating that she received his formal greeting, Murong Shu Qing asked: “What is this invitation for?”
The man was standing with his straight body, he was actually a tall and delicate youngster, he
he respectfully answered: “Answering Miss, this was my family’s Madam who asked this small person to come and deliver this invitation, when she heard that Miss had arrived at the Capital.”
“Madam Xuanyuan?!” Murong Shu Qing originally thought that Xuanyuan Yi was the one who sent a person to deliver the invitation, so she was puzzled because it was not his style. Thinking that it was impossible for him to directly come to her house to deliver the invitation with his overbearing and strong personalities.
Even though she was not clear as to the reason why, Madam Xuanyuan was an Elder after all, so she formally delivered the invitation to ask her. It really could not be justified if she did not go, so Murong Shu Qing softly closed the invitation, and faintly smiled and said to the man: “I understand, Shu Qing will surely be there.”
The man bowed one more time, and said: “Then, this small person will return to the manor first.”
After getting Murong Shu Qing’s nodding approval, the man quickly departed Die
departed Die Cui Xiao Su.
“Lu Yi?” Murong Shu Qing did not have any alternative but to ask Lu Yi, regarding this Madam Xuanyuan, she did not have any idea about her.
Lu Yi served breakfast for Murong Shu Qing first, then she answered: “Madam Xuanyuan and Madam (MSQ’s mom) were friends for many years, their affections between each other were really good, these two Madams were the ones who decided on Miss’ marriage agreement. When Xuanyuan Gongzi wanted to withdraw from the marriage agreement, Madam Xuanyuan did not agree at all.” This was also the reason why Xuanyuan Gongzi had never succeeded in withdrawing from the marriage agreement for so many years.
“Did Madam Xuanyuan meet with the previous me?” She was curious.
“She did for several times.”
“Was she satisfied with the previous MSQ?” She knew that the previous Murong Shu Qing’s temperament was not likable. She wanted to know what Madam Xuanyuan’s assessment for this.
Lu Yi had a smile on her face when she answered: “Madam said that Miss was lively and adorable!”
Lively and adorable? Murong and adorable? Murong Shu Qing’s hand almost spilled the porridge that was on her hand, this was the best assessment for the previous Murong Shu Qing that she had ever heard of from the past few years, so she was somewhat looking forward to tonight’s dinner now. In order to be related in marriage with her friend (MSQ’s mom), she agreed to the marriage agreement despite her son’s objection, and actually could interpret rudeness and unreasonableness as adorable. She was afraid that this Madam Xuanyuan was not like any other person.
Looking at the sunshine outside the window that was already close to noon, Murong Shu Qing walked to the front of the window and breathed the atmosphere that was filled with tea fragrant (smell). Enjoying this warm and dry sunshine, it was really clear and refreshing during the autumn season, her mood was cheerful and she smilingly said to Lu Yi: “Then, let us prepare now, we will pay a visit to Madam Xuanyuan who is worthy to be looked forward to!”
