Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 600
Chapter 600: The Mysterious Luo Family From Xuan Island
The guests stood up one after another and curiously looked across. Xue Liang had actually gone to Qiao Xi’s banquet hall?
No matter whose birthday Xue Liang wanted to celebrate, the fact that he had entered Qiao Xi’s banquet hall meant that he had a close relationship with Qiao Xi.
Could it be that… the biological daughter of the Xu family, Qiao Xi, actually had more connections than Xu Anran?
Xu Anran’s expression was cold. “So, Mr. Xue is here to attend my sister’s birthday party. My sister has led a wandering life for 20 years. It’s not strange for her to have friends.”
No one said anything, but they all had certain thoughts in mind. Although it was only the Xue family, they were more powerful than all the other noble families on Xu Anran’s side.
At this moment, the assistant rushed in with a face full of surprise. “Congratulations, Eldest Miss. The Qin family is here. They’ve arranged for people to send over gifts.”
Imperial Capital’s Qin family? This family actually came to celebrate Xu Anran’s birthday?
All the guests shuddered. That family could be said to be on par with the Xue family. If the Qin family came over, then they wouldn’t have to curry favor with the Xue family and Qiao Xi.
Xu Anran’s expression softened a little. Luckily, the Qin family came.
She heard that Qiao Xi and Xue Yi were good friends and that Xue Liang was Xue Yi’s elder brother. Hence, it was understandable for him to celebrate Qiao Xi’s birthday on account of Xue Yi.
The smile on Xu Anran’s face gradually recovered. It didn’t matter even if Xue Liang had gone to Qiao Xi’s side. Anyway, the Qin family was here for her.
She said elegantly, “Dad, I didn’t expect the young master of the Qin family to come. We have indeed met once. Young Master Qin is very easy-going. Let’s go and welcome him now. Let’s not be rude.”
As soon as she finished speaking, the assistant said in a panic, “Eldest Miss, there’s no need to go. Young Master Qin only sent someone to deliver the gifts. He got out of the car and went straight to Second Miss’ banquet hall.”
The entire place fell silent as if a thunderclap had exploded in everyone’s hearts.
Previously, the guests had all gone to give gifts to Qiao Xi before going to Xu Anran’s side to take their seats. Now, Young Master Qin actually sent someone to send gifts to Xu Anran while he directly went to Qiao Xi’s side.
The tables had turned?
Xu Anran’s face turned pale as the corners of her mouth twitched. Just as she was about to speak, a voice sounded from outside. “The Wang family of Luo City has arrived!”
After a while, the assistant said nervously, “Miss Wang’s family sent a gift and… went straight to Second Miss’ banquet hall.”
“Imperial Capital’s Yang family has arrived!”
“The Zhao family from Lingcheng City has arrived!”
“Eldest Miss, the Yang family and the Qin family are long-time friends, so they also went to Second Miss’ hall. Second Miss once saved Mrs. Zhao, so the Zhao couple also went to Second Miss’ hall.”
Several aristocratic families came in succession, and all of them went to Qiao Xi’s side without exception.
Although the Xu and Xia families had great reputations in Luo City and could be ranked at the top, while the Yin family was the cream of the crop among the wealthy families, they still paled in comparison to so many wealthy families.
Xu Anran stood rooted to the ground as her body trembled. It was not anger or jealousy but fear!
Impossible! It was absolutely impossible for Qiao Xi to know so many people from noble families!
At this moment, the guests were filled with regret. If they had gone to Qiao Xi’s side, they would surely be able to meet many wealthy and noble families. Perhaps they would be able to use this opportunity to get to know the big shots.
The successors and members of those noble families were all intelligent people. There was absolutely a reason why they chose to attend Qiao Xi’s birthday banquet. This meant that Qiao Xi’s identity couldn’t be underestimated. She was even able to make these people think highly of her.
At this moment, some guests were already unable to restrain themselves from heading over to Qiao Xi’s side. The remaining guests were slightly unable to sit still as well. But it wouldn’t do their reputation any good if they left directly, so they could only brace themselves and sit on their seats.
The rims of Xu Anran’s eyes were slightly red, and her expression was filled with resentment. However, she still put on an indifferent smile as she faced the many guests. “It’s really great that Sister has so many friends. I… I’m also very grateful that everyone is staying here with me.”
“You’re too kind, Miss Xu.”
“We’ve been friends with your father for years. Of course, we won’t leave.”
The next second—
“The Shen family from the capital has arrived!”
The Shen family was here too! The rest of the people started to get restless.
Everyone had yet to recover from the shock of the Shen family’s arrival when—
“The Luo family from Xuan Island has arrived!”
As soon as that sentence was uttered, the entire banquet hall was in an uproar. The mysterious Luo family from Xuan Island had also come!
