When Jiang Liangchan arrived at the banquet, most of the people had arrived.
After she had participated several times, she was already very skilled at timing.
It was neither too early to chat with people.
And it wasn’t too late either, if they all arrive and wait for her alone she would look like someone very important and sensational, just like how an important people appears last in a banquet.
The best time was when most of the people have arrived and not long before the appointed time, with this she could quietly stay in the crowd.
But today, even if she timed it perfectly she was accurately pulled out of the crowd.
Shang Chuxue approached her with a snow-white fox fur and a snow-white round fan.
She looked like an immortal that went down to earth but her mouth agape and her words were like dirty ice rustling down.
“I’m afraid the theme of today’s banquet is hard of Lady Jiang?”
“How about this, I have another painting here, although the painting is not the best, but I think it should be enough for Lady Jiang. Would you like to take it to help you?”
A few young ladies who followed her, covering their mouths and giggling after she said these.
Jiang Liangchan tilted her head, and looked at her,
“I’m not embarrassed with the painting I have. I just don’t understand it’s in the middle of winter but why are you fanning yourself?”
Shang Chuxue: “…”
Shang Chuxue said angrily.
“You can still be arrogant now, and let you be arrogant for a while but we’ll see how you will lose your face later.”
She coldly and scornly said as she flung down the words and slammed her sleeves and left.
Her followers also followed suit.
Jiang Liangchan didn’t bother to pay attention to her.
Shang Chuxue belongs to the group of people who were unhappy with Jiang Liangchan for no reason and asked for trouble every time they met.
She was the legitimate daughter of the Minister of Rites, and one of her family member was a favored concubine so with this identity she held her head everywhere not to mention she also takes herself seriously.
In the previous gatherings, Jiang Liangchan would always mixed with them and not slip away which made Shang Chuxue happy.
Although she was only a little better than Jiang Liangchan.
But this banquet today was considered to be hit on her gun.
Although Shang Chuxue was not that talented, it was said that she has painted a good painting.
And even if Jiang Liangchan has not seen her paintings, but looking at her proud look it looks like her level may be considered okay.
Why look at these girls, how easily inflated they are.
Shang Chuxue was taken by her, and Jiang Liangchan continued to go to the middle of the banquet without any psychological pressure.
After taking two steps, her sleeve was tugged.
Jiang Liangchan looked back and it was Li Rong.
The original body’s popularity could be considered scarce, she walked between noble and rich woman at several gatherings and found that it was either plastic sisterhood or simply do not get along with each other or even disgusted with each other.
In short, not a single friend.
It’s amazing how evil people still have a few evil friends.
Although Li Rong was born from a second-class family and her identity was just considered normal, she was little shy and didn’t communicate much with others, and unexpectedly didn’t have any have any friends also.
Of course, the original body has no interaction with Li Rong.
But in a party Jiang Liangchan happened to meet Li Rong who was being made fun so she had helped her out.
After that Li Rong identified her as a good person and followed her like a small tail.
This time, Li Rong tugger her sleeve gesturing for her to come to her ear.
Then whispered to Jiang Liangchan.
“When I came just now, I heard them forming a game, taking you as a bet.”
Jiang Liangchan was a bit flattered for a moment.
“Really, so they think so highly of my talent? In that case, I have been misunderstanding them?”
Li Rong looked at her with a look that was hard to describe.
“Oh, no, you really misunderstood. They were betting on whether you would win the last place this time. Before you came they argued for a long time because everyone bet on your last place, they thought it would be useless. But in the end, no one refused to quit and said that this was the best chance of winning.”
Li Rong said mercilessly.
Jiang Liangchan: “…”
The truth of life was always cruel.
Li Rong inserted another knife.
“The number of people is quite large, half of the people attending this banquet.”
The number of people was quite large.
The wisdom tree in Jiang Liangchan’s head suddenly lit up for a moment.
Seeing that there were too many people here, she pulled Li Rong to a corner and asked in a low voice.
“This bet, they didn’t bet on anything else other than me getting last place?”
Li Rong answered her angrily.
“What else do you want them to bet on? Bet your first?”
Jiang Liangchan looked at her with a smile and didn’t speak.
Li Rong gradually lost her smile in Jiang Liangchan’s calm smile.
She almost couldn’t keep her voice down.
“You don’t really think so, do you?”
Jiang Liangchan looked around and took advantage of the fact that no one was paying attention to them in all directions so she pulled out the scroll and opened it slightly to show her.
Li Rong understood that Jiang Liangchan may some magic weapon today and that was why she was confident that she has all the winning ticket in hand.
She also held down her excited little heart and stole a glance at the painting through the sacred gap.
Just in time to see the formed chicken head.
And couldn’t see anything else.
Li Rong: “….”
Jiang Liangchan winked at her confidently.
“How about it? Listen to me, you just use your name to bet, we both bet all the silver note we have today, bet on me to come first and earn a lot of money.”
Li Rong looked at her confident and beautiful smile.
Quietly in her sleeve she pinched her small silver note she had saved with great difficulty.
Then nodded solemnly.
“En, listen to you.”
What was money worth?
If it could make her sister happy.
Today’s rules were somewhat special and different from all the previous ones.
In the past, all the works were assembled and uniformly ranked as one, two or three.
Today was different, the post explained that everyone should bring their own painting as well as penalty. The penalty should not be less than 100 liang of silver.
At first Jiang Liangchan also did not understand the meaning, until the rules were announced. Today’s competition had to be divided into several rounds, the first round was one-to-one competition. The participants were free to compete in a group of two, the winner will take the penalty of the loser.
Jiang Liangchan wandered around the small table in front of everyone, choosing the right competition object.
That xue lingzhi is good, I can take it back to mother for tonic and nourish her body.
Is that military book? I can show it to Jiang Yunting.
Who was this who put silver note directly on the table? Simple and brutal and I liked it.
Jiang Liangchan picked and chose, just as she was about to stand in front of xue lingzhi her sleeve was pulled again.
Li Rong tugged at her very firmly.
“I want to compete with you.”
Jiang Liangchan had a question mark floating on her head.
“Are you stupid? If we compete separately we can win exactly two items, what’s the point of internal conflict?”
Li Rong without hesitation moves forwardly courageously.
No matter where her sister’s confidence comes from.
Since she wants to win so badly.
Let her win, she was her sister after all!
Jiang Liangchan was helpless, no matter what she said Li Rong was firm and insisted on competing with her but didn’t say the reason.
