Chapter 107: Birthday Ball
T/N: A Teddy’s birthday arrived, let’s all wish Linh a happy birthday!
Father Lin and Mother Lin vowed to turn the birthday party into a blind date party. Its splendor was bigger than a wedding ceremony, with 10 meters of red carpet spread outside the door and flowers on either side.
The chefs and service staff of the top restaurants in S City were invited to set up more than a dozen tables in the back garden of the Lin family.
Lin Xin naturally understood what they meant to do. She thought: that is all her parents were asking for, so let them be. The person they like, as long as she doesn’t hate him, she’ll marry him.
Lin Xin was in a good mood to attend the birthday party in accordance with her parents’ wishes.
On her birthday, not only did the young talents attend but also the maidens of S City. The Lins may not be the most elite, but they were cultured — had a son, a daughter and no rumors.
Lin Shuhao was 24 and unlike the others, never had an affair. Budding stars, distinguished women, online celebrities, and all kinds of women flew in from across the world.
With a good family, good appearance and good character like his, who would not want to marry him?
On his birthday, a fleet of cars was parked outside the Lin residence. The men were dressed in expensive suits while most of the women decked up for the red carpet.
Lin Xin thought she had seen the whole world, but when she saw the line of luxurious cars downstairs, she sighed in her heart: capitalism is really… *
She thought of the time in the orphanage when she a mere apple brought joy. She could not remember the taste of many delicacies, however, the apple was sweet to her heart.
‘Now I am afraid that I will never be able to eat such a sweet apple, I can’t help but feel a little sad.’
She was reminiscing the past like an old woman before Lin Shuhao asked her to head downstairs. She did her hair and went out of the door with the help of a servant.
Lin Shuhao offered his hand, Lin Xin took his arm and slowly, to the sound of music, walked downstairs.
She was greeted by applause, Lin Xin acknowledged with a graceful smile, leaving all the men stunned.
Rumor had it that the Lin family’s youngest daughter was so ugly that she never dared to see anyone. Legend stated that she had physical deformities, either missing an arm or a broken leg. Beautiful as snow, the rumors were not credible.
Lin Shuhao proudly whispered into Lin Xin’s ear, “Look, they’re all fascinated by you.”
Lin Xin glared at him angrily, and her thoughts floated to her childhood.
She had been an odd child in her class since kindergarten. At first, everyone wanted to play with her, but then for a long time, she had remained isolated.
There was nothing wrong with her. She didn’t like to play with them anyway. Until one day she had a little tail behind her that she couldn’t shake off.
Well, sure enough, she had bad memories.
Lin Xin’s eyes swept across the living room full of people, wanting to find a pleasant person to try and talk to. This was a new chapter in her life.
Suddenly, a familiar face jumped out to her. Too surprised, Lin Xin did not stand firmly, almost falling down. Fortunately, with Lin Shuhao holding her arm, she regained her balance.
