Chapter 43: The Discontinued Version of MG
Gu Weiwei dug into the cake leisurely with her fork and put it into her mouth. The sweetness of the cake was just right, and it must have been a product of a Michelin-starred chef, probably one with three stars.
Seeing My Weiwei ignoring her, Wu Xiulian snorted coldly.
“Do you think that just because you have slept with Fu Hanzheng, you are the daughter-in-law of the Fu Family? Just because you are here because of a man, doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a decent aristocrat.”
Gu Weiwei took a sip on the fruit juice and said calmly, “I am not sure if I am a decent aristocrat, but the way that Mrs. Meng is talking is making you look like an indecent person.”
No women from any aristocratic families would speak in such a mean way at such a formal occasion.
“Who are you swearing at?” Wu Xiulian bellowed with an ashen face.
Gu Weiwei raised her eyebrows and sneered. “Did I refer to you?”
As the two were arguing, many guests were drawn to the site. Someone recognized that Mrs. Meng was a guest of Mrs. Fu, so they stepped forward and asked, “What is it going on, Mrs. Meng?”
Mrs. Fu often brought the daughter of the Meng Family to different banquets and apparently, she had already accepted her as the daughter-in-law. That was why they should somehow flatter Mrs. Meng ahead of time.
Wu Xiulian squinted at Gu Weiwei who was still seated there drinking afternoon tea as if nothing had happened. “Nothing, just an arrogant girl who has sneaked into the party.”
Meng Ruya also showed up when she heard the noise. A touch of hatred flashed across her eyes when she spotted Mu Weiwei.
Although she had been driven out of the Fu Family, she had still slept with Fu Hanzheng and she had succeeded in getting the painting from Mr. Ming, which had humiliated her in front of the Fu’s.
Seeing the crowd getting larger, Wu Xiulian said to the female guests who were the majority in the crowd. “Watch out everyone, this girl specialises in seducing someone else’s husband, especially ones who have a lot of money.”
Hearing the words, the female guests all turned to Gu Weiwei with a disdainful look when they noticed how pretty this girl actually looked.
Gu Weiwei lowered her eyes and saw the tasty desert on the plate. Her good mood had been totally ruined, so she looked up and confronted Wu Xiulian with a look of coldness.
“Mrs. Meng, who do you think I have seduced, and what is your slander based on?”
Even though Mu Weiwei had courted Fu Hanzheng, Meng Ruya was still not the formal daughter-in-law of the Fu Family. Nor had she been engaged to Fu Hanzheng either.
Even though she had slept with Fu Hanzheng, she had not seduced Meng Ruya’s man.
“You…” Wu Xiulian got stuck with words.
She was just annoyed that this girl had moved into the Fu Family and slept with the man her daughter had laid eyes upon.
But if she spilled out the truth, she would humiliate the Fu Family. So she couldn’t just simply say that she had seduced Fu Hanzheng.
“You know pretty well what dirt you had done! I am just trying to save your face.”
Gu Weiwei narrowed her beautiful eyes, showing a bit of intimidating air.
“Mrs. Meng, if I have done something dirty, you must tell me what on earth it is. If you refuse to point it out, then you better apologize to me. I do not accept any false accusations.”
Her aim was to be a part of the entertainment industry, and if the accusation was not clarified right here right now, people would think that any role she received was in exchange of s*x.
Also, she did not want to be considered as such a girl anyway.
Seeing that the crowd was standing on her side, Wu Xiulian snorted in a loud voice, “Who do you think you are that I have to apologize to you?”
Gu Weiwei stood up with the fork and glanced at Wu Xiulian’s exquisite leather handbag.
“Mrs. Meng, your bag looks… pretty.”
Wu Xiulian lowered her look and said, “It is the discontinued version of MG, something you will never get.”
Gu Weiwei raised the corner of her lips and looked on coldly.
“Are you sure you are not going to apologize to me for what you just said?”
Wu Xiulian snorted proudly, “I have said nothing wrong. Why should I apologize to you?”
Gu Weiwei let out a sigh of pity and stabbed the expensive leather handbag that Wu Xiulian had been showing off with the silver fork, leaving a scraped mark on the smooth surface.
She had been in a very bad mood recently. She could tolerate Fu Hanzheng since she simply couldn’t irritate him, but she couldn’t tolerate a woman like this one.
Wu Xiulian and Meng Ruya were shocked and screamed in horror.
“This is the discontinued version of MG, there are no more than ten available in the world. And you have just… just scratched it?!”
