Chapter 51 – The Chen Sisters (1)
The two miss belonged to the line of Old Madam Lu’s mother. Before the Lu family entered the limelight, the Chen family didn’t associate much with them.
But now, their attitudes towards the Lu family had completely changed.
When Ye Zhen heard that Fourth Miss Lu deliberately stressed that they were students of the prestigious college, she just smiled. “That’s great! Having more than two sisters in the college would be joyful!”
Chen Qiuping glanced at Ye Zhen and said with a smile, “We only got in by luck.”
Those who can get into the women’s college can’t just get away with luck. The Chen sisters had been trained by their family to have high aspirations since childhood.
With them being a family of commoners, the Chen sisters had difficulty arranging marriage with men from noble families. Therefore, they could only make efforts to change this.
They told themselves that as long as they could make a name in the Women’s College, they would gain popularity and chance for a higher status.
Indeed, they succeeded. Only, they didn’t expect Lu Jing to outshine them, completely shadowing their glory.
However, now that they have the third miss who has just come from the border town, the Chen sisters felt that a rare opportunity was handed to them!
It was their time to finally shine!
In their minds, If Ye Zhen makes a fool out of herself during the exam, then people would start comparing her with them, making them look far superior in talents!
With this in mind, Chen Qiuping smiled more and more kindly at Ye Zhen. “It’s really good that my third sister will learn with us soon.”
Ye Zhen faintly frowned and said, “Unfortunately, I will take the examination of the medical center, which is different from my sisters’ chosen fields.”
Besides, the Chen sisters entered college at young ages and have been performing well ever since. In fact, they would be finishing college after a year.
Lu Yaoyao should’ve graduated with them if only she wasn’t contained in the Border Town all her life. They were the same age and even Lu Jing who was younger than her was already admitted in the college.
Due to this fact, Old Madam Lu felt the need to clear things out and intervene.
“Yao Yao missed the opportunity to study in the women’s college in the border town, but luckily the medical center does not restrict her age. she has some basic skills which the Women’s College could appreciate.”
“What’s so good about the medical center? Do you want to be a doctor when you graduate?” Chen Liping had some disdain in her eyes. She despised practicing medicine as she deemed it a poor profession. For women, that is.
The tone of displeasure didn’t escape the Old Madam’s notice. Upon hearing, her head perked up as her mouth curled into a frown,
“What’s wrong with being a female doctor? Wasn’t the Empress Duan Hui of Qin Dynasty a doctor?”
It was more than a hundred years ago. Who knows if what the history books say is true or not? Chen Liping thought bitterly to herself.
Although the women’s college was founded by the Empress and the medical center enjoyed a good time, the country was no longer a scenic country, and the royal family was no longer speared by the Emperor of Qin Dynasty. Everything had long been different.
Seeing Chen Liping’s disdain, Ye Zhen also disagreed. In the past, she rarely went to a medical museum as it never fascinated her, but now she realized its importance.
Not only it was a respectable and quite an impressive job a woman could have, but it could also be her fastest way of entering the imperial palace where her revenge would transpire!
“My grandma’s opinions are always sensible but I dare not be like the Empress of Qi Dynasty. Our Wang Fei is already a blessing. I am already satisfied to be a first-class female medical doctor inside the imperial palace.” Ye Zhen rubbed her arms a few times, showing a little bashfulness while speaking sweetly.
“Dear, you are young yet you sound more sensible than most girls your age!” Old Madam Lu touched her face and liked her granddaughter a little more.
Lu Jing gave Ye Zhen a look and secretly hated her third sister for pleasing the Old Madam with her words!
“Grandma, I will take the graduation exam next year. You said before that if I do well in the exam, I will be rewarded.”
“Well, what reward do you want?” The happiest thing for Old Madam Lu was to watch several of her granddaughters to successfully graduate from the Women’s college. It was also an honor for their family.
Those who look down on their Lu family and think that merchants can’t afford to be noble and be generous, just wait for a slap in the face!
Old Madam Lu decided to give whatever Fourth Miss Lu’s wish was.
Lu Wushuang was dubbed as one of the most remarkable Wang Fei the capital ever had, which was the biggest slap to those people. Even Ye Zhen, the daughter of a distinguished family could not rival with her!
“Grandmother, the third sister got a good whip the other day. I like it very much. Please ask the third sister to give me the whip as a reward if ever I manage to graduate…”
Lu Jing deliberately said with an innocent and flawless face looking eagerly towards the Old Madam.
