Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 819
Chapter 819: Second Miss Lu Is Furious
Lu Xiang was jealous, and her eyes were filled with resentment.
Coincidentally, at this moment, Qiao Xi pushed the door open and entered. Lu Xiang frowned and was about to flare up when she turned around and realized that it was Qiao Xi. Her heart could not help but tremble.
Qiao Xi blinked and said gently, “Say it! Why aren’t you saying anything, Miss Lu?”
Everyone’s gaze landed on Qiao Xi. Her beautiful eyes moved to look at Old Master Lu, then she sneered. “Ah Zheng, since the Lu family doesn’t welcome us so much, let’s leave!”
Gu Zheng curled his lips into a smile and threw the exquisite invitation on the waiter’s tray. “Alright.”
Qiao Xi said indifferently, “I’m really sorry, Old Master Lu. You invited Ah Zheng and we arrived on time. But since everyone doesn’t want us to be here, then there’s no need for us to stay. But why didn’t you tell everyone that you invited us?
“Why did Miss Lu make it sound like you didn’t invite us and we shamelessly came to attend?”
Old Master Lu glared at Lu Xiang. No matter how dissatisfied he was, he could not say it in front of outsiders. If Gu Zheng left just like that, how would their plan today continue?
Old Master Lu’s face darkened. “Lu Xiang, quickly apologize to Ah Zheng. You’re Ah Zheng’s aunt. How could you say that about him? Even if he really did something wrong, as an elder, you have to be tolerant. Don’t say such things again!”
Qiao Xi sneered in her heart. Old Master Lu had specially emphasized the word ‘elder’ to tell Gu Zheng that Lu Xiang was his elder. If an elder said something wrong, what could a junior do?
Old Master Lu had already said so and given Gu Zheng a way out. Now, as long as Gu Zheng said that there was no need, this matter would be over.
“Second Miss Lu, quickly apologize!” Gu Zheng raised an eyebrow.
The banquet hall instantly fell into silence. No one dared to say anything. Lu Xiang’s face was livid, and the corners of her mouth twitched slightly. “You…”
Everyone’s gaze landed on Lu Xiang. She trembled, and her breathing became hurried. She wished she could rush over and slap Gu Zheng hard.
How dare a junior like him embarrass her in front of outsiders?
Old Master Lu’s face darkened. “Ah Zheng, you’re a junior, after all. How can you be so rude to your elders? Previously, it was our Lu family who didn’t educate you, causing you to become so naughty and arrogant. Now that you’ve already returned to the Lu family, you should follow the Lu family’s rules.”
The atmosphere became even more awkward. The air seemed to have frozen. Everyone lowered their heads and did not dare to make a sound.
Gu Zheng was not in a rush to speak. It seemed that neither party had any intention of giving in. If both parties were unwilling to lower their heads, how would this annual meeting continue?
Old Master Lu thought that as a junior, Gu Zheng could not get his elders to apologize to him in front of everyone. Moreover, it was not a big deal. If he insisted on acting like this, it would not be good for his reputation.
The entire venue was silent for two minutes. Qiao Xi, who was at the side, spoke first, “You clearly know that your Lu family hasn’t done your part to educate him, so what right do you have to use the Lu family’s rules to restrain him?”
Qiao Xi held Gu Zheng’s hand and glanced coldly at the members of the Lu family. “Speaking of which, your Lu family’s rules aren’t much either! Do elders not have to apologize for their mistakes? Do juniors deserve to be scolded? Who taught you such crooked logic?”
Her reprimand instantly caused a commotion. Lu Xiang could not help but roar angrily, “Qiao Xi!”
Qiao Xi raised her eyes unhurriedly and raised her eyebrows. “Oh! Second Miss Lu, are you angry from embarrassment?”
These words angered Lu Xiang so much that she was fuming. She no longer cared about her image as a socialite and cursed, “Who are you to teach me a lesson? Moreover, we only invited Ah Zheng to today’s annual meeting. He’s considered half a member of the Lu family and has the right to attend the annual meeting. Who do you think you are? Hurry up and get lost!”
After a furious roar, the entire venue fell silent.
Gu Zheng’s eyes were sharp, and he exuded a chill.
Lu Xiang did not know that she had angered Gu Zheng, so she still shouted, “Not just anyone can attend our Lu family’s annual meeting! You’re just a toy Ah Zheng married. After he gets over the feeling of novelty, he’ll abandon you. What right does such a woman have to attend the Lu family’s annual meeting? Unless you can prove that you’re qualified to attend.”
