Chapter 94: Gongsun Yu Is A Beautiful Woman With Talents (3)
Yu Bihua’s face was red and was about to expose Zhou Xiaoxiao when Guo Jingyan suddenly stood up and pointed at her. She said, “Yu Bihua, you have to know that I’ve been enduring your attitude for some time and if you dare to bully my younger brother’s wife, don’t blame me if I make things difficult for you.”
Gongsun Yu used her handkerchief to cover her mouth and said, “Oh, if sister Yu is missing a fan at home, this sister can ask someone to send you a box full of fans in a while. Why the need to do this?”
Yu Bihua’s face turned red and white for a while, but she was unwilling to leave. Therefore, she endured the humiliation and sat back down.
Zhou Xiaoxiao clutched her heart and thought: whoa, women don’t get into quarrels any less than men. It would’ve been easier if they actually fought with weapons.
After a few more rounds, everyone was kind of drunk.
Some maids started to come up and clean up the mess while the others prepared ink and paper.
Once they finished setting this up, Yang Yuehua grabbed a stick and it had a picture of a beautiful woman on it.
Yang Yuehua said, “Wonderful. The topic of drawing will be ‘beauty.’”
Zhou Xiaoxiao didn’t know how to draw but she was pretty good at sketching.
Yesterday, Guo Jingyan had already told her about it, so she prepared a few charcoals of different sizes. After receiving the topic, she began to draw.
Everyone followed suit and started brushing against the paper; silence filled the air.
Only Zhou Xiaoxiao’s charcoal made noises as she started drawing.
People couldn’t help but watch.
After a while, everyone started gossiping and whispering to one another.
“What is this art technique? I’ve never seen this before.”
“It’s quite unique and it looks like the figure was about to come out of the paper.”
Someone gasped in shock and said, “Isn’t, isn’t this lady Gongsun?”
They watched as a beautiful woman slowly appeared on the paper. It seems like she was walking on paper and her clothes were floating, her gaze like Goddess Luoshui; it looked exactly like Gongsun Yu.
As Zhou Xiaoxiao continued to draw the figure, it became clearer. She skillfully used different strokes to illustrate the woman.
The woman in the drawing smiled and her hair was scattered down her shoulders, as if there was wind blowing at it. She was floating and about to come out of the art.
Everyone was shocked and declared this drawing as the winner of Suyun Group.
Gongsun Yu adored it very much and named it 《Luoshen》. She then gave the drawing a description, describing its beauty.
She coaxed and pestered Zhou Xiaoxiao for this drawing and she got it in the end.
When the banquet was nearing its end, there were countless social climbing women who surrounded Zhou Xiaoxiao and Guo Jingyan, flattering them.
Guo Jingyan happily accepted it since she thought that Zhou Xiaoxiao helped her gain face. She didn’t need to endure these women’s attitudes anymore and she was like a peacock who had opened its feathers, being proud and prideful.
When they returned to the residence in the evening, Zhou Xiaoxiao saw Yu Xingzhi who was in the study practicing writing characters. She pounced on his back and kissed him several times.
Yu Xingzhi smiled and helped her down.
“How is today’s banquet? Did you get used to it?”
“The banquet was very unique and interesting. Gongsun Yu is a beautiful woman with talent, making me sigh in admiration.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao held onto Yu Xingzhi, not letting him go.
“But Xingzhi, I have a question. With someone as beautiful and talented like Gongsun Yu, even I like her, so how come you really didn’t have the intention of marrying her?”
Yu Xingzhi suddenly sighed in relief. He was actually worried that Zhou Xiaoxiao was never jealous.
Yet, he always felt awkward about men appearing by Zhou Xiaoxiao’s side, but he couldn’t really voice his thoughts.
This was the first time he’d heard her imply that she was sort of jealous, making him feel comforted.
“No matter me and my cousin’s habits, hobbies, or personality, we are both the same. While getting along with each other, if one person is like a mirror, it will be very boring. She and I both understand this and we’re just annoyed that our family likes to force us together.”
Yu Xingzhi hugged Zhou Xiaoxiao and said, “My heart belongs to you.”
