Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 789
Tang Ruge smiled in embarrassment. “Actually, I’ve only been systematically learning oil painting for half a month. I didn’t expect Madam Carter to express her appreciation for my talent. It’s really my honor.”
Everyone hurriedly praised Tang Ruge for being outstanding. Even Madam Carter came for her. Only the person in charge looked at Qiao Xi with an awkward expression.
Of course, he knew that Tang Ruge’s painting absolutely did not meet Carter’s requirements. If Carter was here for a genius female painter in her 20s, then there was only one person in the art exhibition who matched her requirements—Qiao Xi.
Qiao Xi looked at Tang Ruge’s hypocritical face indifferently. A moment later, she looked away in disgust.
After a while, everyone in the oil painting exhibition knew that Madam Carter was here to look for Miss Tang. Everyone present knew Madam Carter’s international status. Anyone who could catch her eye was definitely a genius.
Everyone voiced their praises. Only Qiao Xi sat in the corner and drank her coffee comfortably.
Tang Ruge leaned over and smiled gently. “Xi Xi, you’re indeed very talented. If you don’t mind, I want to introduce you to Madam Carter.”
Qiao Xi did not want to pay attention to Tang Ruge, so she found a corner to quietly watch the farce. However, Tang Ruge still came looking for her and showed off in front of her.
Tang Lingyun leaned over and said in a low voice, “Sister, don’t forget how she bullied you yesterday. How can you still be thinking of helping her at a time like this?!”
Tang Ruge smiled generously. “It was all a misunderstanding. Xi Xi and I are friends.”
Tang Lingyun was still dissatisfied. “Qiao Xi thinks highly of herself and keeps suppressing you because she thinks she’s talented. Now that you’ve caught Madam Carter’s eye, it’s already good enough that you’re not suppressing her. Why are you still helping her?”
Tang Ruge smiled helplessly. “Lingyun, don’t say that. Xi Xi has a temper, but she doesn’t have any ill intentions.”
Everyone’s gazes landed on Qiao Xi with mocking expressions. What right did she have to look down on Tang Ruge? Tang Ruge was an artist who had caught Madam Carter’s eye!
“Sister, you’re just too kind. You’re always so magnanimous. With Qiao Xi’s conceited appearance, Madam Carter will definitely hate her. How could she possibly be willing to mentor her?!”
When Tang Ruge heard Tang Lingyun’s words, she pretended to be an elder and gently mediated things. “Xi Xi, Lingyun said something wrong. Don’t take it to heart.”
At this moment, everyone felt that Miss Tang was even more kind-hearted, tolerant, and magnanimous. Facing such an unreasonable woman, she could still deal with her so indifferently without the slightest anger. She was indeed a daughter of a noble family in the capital.
“Madam Carter is here!” At this moment, a shout came from outside the door. Everyone looked in the direction of the voice.
Tang Lingyun pulled Tang Ruge forward excitedly. “Sister, Madam Carter is here to look for you!”
Jin Yan was also excited. “Ruge, I really admire you!”
Tang Ruge blushed. “I’m not as good as you say. I’m just lucky to be appreciated by Madam Carter.”
Madam Tang looked at her daughter affectionately. “Ruge, you don’t have to be humble at a time like this. If you don’t have the ability, how could you have caught Madam Carter’s eye?”
Madam Carter’s footsteps were getting closer and closer. Everyone craned their necks and saw a fashionable middle-aged woman appear in front of everyone. Her eyes were dignified, but there was a faint smile on her lips.
Madam Carter was already in her 60s, but the woman in front of them had taken good care of herself. Her skin was fair and smooth, and her figure was curvaceous. She was wearing a long fishtail dress.
Carter glanced around. After a moment of silence, she frowned.
Which one was Han Yin? She came in a hurry this time and only heard that Han Yin was here, but she had never seen her photo.
Han Ye was really too much as well. He was always so mysterious that she could not catch sight of him. The couple were both masters of the oil painting world. It was good enough to just meet one of them first!
She had heard from Han Ye that his wife was wearing light-colored pants, but there seemed to be two young women wearing light-colored pants. Which one was it?
Carter hesitated for a moment before walking toward Qiao Xi.
The expressions of the Tang family froze. Tang Lingyun hurriedly shouted, “Madam Carter, the artist you’re looking for is here!”
Carter stopped in her tracks. She was afraid that she would get the wrong person and make Han Yin unhappy, so she quickly turned around.
Tang Lingyun gently pushed Tang Ruge. “Sister, go over quickly! Madam Carter is already here. Hurry up and greet her.”
