Chapter 116 – Ghost! Ghost! (1)
The next day, Ye Zhen got up early in the morning to prepare for the entrance examination. Today, she was going to take part in the entrance examination at the women’s college.
She intently kept an air of nervousness; she was still a wild girl from the border town. Being too confident would raise suspicions.
Old Madam Lu purposely asked Lu Fang to accompany her. It also happened that Lu Jing didn’t have to attend classes today, so they all volunteered to accompany Ye Zhen to the college.
Ye Zhen didn’t welcome Lu Jing’s enthusiasm. These sisters didn’t want to cheer her up—they clearly came to see a joke.
Today Ye Zhen wore a narrow waist jacket adorned with silk that looked like cascading water with freshly-sprouted buds. Underneath it was green, westerly-cut silk skirt, which made her skin more white and jade-like.
Looking at Ye Zhen, the gown looked enchanting; even Lu Jing couldn’t take her eyes from her.
She felt a twinge of jealousy in her heart. Even if Lu Yaoyao failed in everything, her appearance alone would be enough to make people remember her.
“Yao Yao, I have used your ointment, but my face hasn’t changed at all?” Chen Liping looked at Ye Zhen’s perfectly rouged face and was so envious that she really wanted to rip off Ye Zhen’s face and put it on her own.
Ye Zhen answered in a kind tone. “The ointment is not a miraculous elixir. It does not take one or two days to show effects, besides we have different skin types.”
“Then how did it changed you so fast?” Lu Jing asked, pouting her lips.
“You don’t understand natural beauty.” Ye Zhen jested. The proud expression made other girls anxious to crush her!
Chen Qiuping, who was likely to become their eldest sister-in-law in the future was not as envious of Ye Zhen compared to her younger sister. She said gently, “It’s getting late. We should set off, Yao Yao. Today is your important day.”
“She can’t pass the exam anyway, many people bet on this likely possibility..” Lu Jing sighed and cooed Ye Zhen fraudly, “Third sister, it doesn’t matter if you don’t pass the exam.”
From this, Lu Fang laughed. “Yao Yao hasn’t taken the exam yet. How can you say such bad things?’
“Fourth sister, If you can tell a good story, you really need to…speak more.” Chen Liping followed with raucous laughter.
Ye Zhen didn’t care about their taunts, but instead thanked for their reminders—she almost forgot about the betting.
There should be a lot of people who want to pay attention to her test today. She heard that the princess Liu Hua instigated the gamble herself. Because Mister Shan shunned her that day, she became livid and coerced others to make bets on Ye Zhen.
This was her attempt to humiliate Ye Zhen in the eyes of the many.
Humiliating her means humiliating the Lu family. Lu Jing was a fool not to see this and kept betting with others.
“The college must be very lively today.” Ye Zhen uttered plaintively.
Lu Jing glanced at her mockingly and said, “That’s not necessarily true. This is not a famous entrance examination. If it were another center of the college, the teaching center perhaps, then it would be vivacious.”
Most of the girls taking the entrance examination of the medical center were old and had an ordinary family background, which was naturally different from the women’s teaching class.
She spoke no more. There was no point in arguing with a narrow-minded person like Lu Jing. Several girls split up and went to two separate carriages before setting off towards the college.
