Chapter 75 – There’s a Woman Who Starts To Grow Up (2)
How can a person who claims to not know how to play the piano responds to its tune so…perfectly?
Not to mention her outstanding technique of playing the drums with her feet, it was naturally in sync with the piano.
Ye Zhen’s heart skipped a beat, her muscles tensing under the scrutiny of the teacher, sweat started to break out from her temples.
After a pregnant silence, she squeezed out a made-up explanation.
She smiled while speaking, “Back in the Border town, there was a dance troupe near my home. At that time, I would go and see them practice almost every day. From there, I learned how to dance!
Mister Shan raised his eyebrows lightly, not believing Ye Zhen’s words, implausibly fabricated at a moment of panic.
However, he was impressed by her choice of words. He couldn’t think of a more suitable excuse other than what she gave.
When he saw the young miss dancing today, he suddenly felt that his student had many secrets and perhaps hidden talents that others still did not know.
But, why should she do this? The miss was indeed a puzzle he has yet to solve.
“Who was that man just now?” Mister Shan asked in a low voice. He had recently came back to the capital and wasn’t yet informed that Tang Zhen was now the marquis.
Ye Zhen answered flatly, totally uninterested, “Did you mean Marquis Tang? He is an orphan. I heard that he followed the emperor from an early age. By the time the new emperor ascended the throne, he was given the position of a marquis. ”
Although having no support from a large family, such people like the marquis who took roles in the war, are more likely to gain the trust of the emperor, guaranteeing three generations of wealth and splendor in his family!
In fact, the ladies who wanted to marry him in the capital forms a long queue.
Mister Shan sat straighter, his eyes fell to Ye Zhen somberly.
“I think he’s too concerned about you. If you know how to love yourself, listen to my advice. Listen to me as your teacher. In this world, most men have few words to be believed in. Men are deemed the coldest since ancient times.” he spoke the words grimly.
Ye Zhen knew that Mister Shan was worried that she would be played and afterwards, neglected like used goods.
She had a promising future, it would be disheartening to see it recklessly thrown away!
“Sir, you can rest assured that this student naturally know the depth of her actions.
He nodded. “Just always remember what I said.”
Afterwards, Mister Shan had kept quiet. Seeing that Ye Zhen understood what he said, he stopped talking.
Lu Shiming and his wife came back, and the lamb had been finally roasted, infiltrating the air of an appetizing smell.
The herbal juice Ye Zhen applied to her face herself had now disappeared, removed by sweat. Henceforth, in the light of the bonfire, her jade skin was revealed, making her an image of tantalizing beauty.
“Yao Yao.” Lu Shiming seemed to have just noticed how drastic his daughter’s change was.
“What is it?” Ye Zhen was cutting mutton when she heard Lu Shiming calling her. She smiled and raised her head.
His daughter has become so beautiful. In his previous impression, Yao Yao was like his little wild boy. Really, it was like he was raising two sons in the Border Town!
When did my daughter become like this?
“Nothing, eat more.” Lu Shiming was pleasantly surprised but felt more worried.
If she looks so pretty, she would attract others’ attention as long as she’s seen in the public. A deep stab in the gut put him on edge, what if her biological parents see her. Will they recognize her?
Lu Shiming had an impulse to hide his daughter in the boudoir and not let her go out!
But after all, he couldn’t possibly do it. He would be the last one who could stand to lock her up.
Ye Zhen didn’t know what Lu Shiming was thinking. She got Pei Shi’s approval politely and drank several cups of fruit wine with Mister Shan. She just drank a little too much and got a little bit drunk.
Pei Shi asked the maid to take her back inside
When Lu Xiangzhi and Tang Zhen returned to the hunting ground, everyone was already drinking and stuffing their mouths with meat, and two guards were wrestling in the middle.
Mo Rongzhan sat on one side, drinking while looking at the court guards clashing in force, and rolling to the ground in the heat of the match. When he heard of the two men’s return, he just glanced lightly at their figures.
Lu Xiangzhi and Tang Zhen saluted Mo Rongzhan before returning to their respective positions.
“Why did you come back just now?” Lu Lingzhi frowned.
“My family is also having a barbecue. When we went back, we saw third sister dancing. Eldest brother, you don’t know, third sister’s dancing is really good!” Lu Xiangzhi said in an ostentatious manner that his younger sister had become so beautifully talented and that he was very proud of it.
Lu Lingzhi frowned. “Dancing?”
He imagined Yao Yao dancing, and his chest felt stuffy and sour. His sharp gaze immediately turned to Tang Zhen who was casually sitting by the door, a playful smirk at his face while his eyes stared at blank space and not to the wrestling duo.
It seemed like he was fantasizing of someone.
And Lu Lingzhi knew who it was!
“Yes, Mister Shan played the piano while Yao Yao danced with drums! Eldest brother should have seen her, just like a fairy! She was so good, Brother Tang was even stunned!” Lu Xiangzhi laughed.
Lu Lingzhi snorted coldly. Tang Zhen overheard the conversation was now throwing dagger-like glares towards talkative Lu Xiangzhi.
Then, to dissipate the pressure, he gave a sheepish innocent smile towards Lu Lingzhi.
