Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Huo Bing’s ears were sharp. When he heard about the young lady of the Mu family, he was still muttering in his heart. What young lady of the Mu family?
When was there a girl in the Mu family?
An illegitimate daughter of the Mu family?
Could it be that Grandma wanted to see the young lady of the Mu Family to look at her for Huo ge?
At the thought of this, the indignation in Huo Bing’s heart appeared again. He was a year older than Huo Ge. Shouldn’t they find someone for him first?”
Besides, the Mu Family was a big family that was comparable to the Lu Family and the Wei Family. The daughter of the Mu Family was precious.
Back then, the Wen Family was just a small family. Mu Yao of the Mu Family married into their family and they directly became a new noble in the capital.
He wanted to see what kind of young lady his Grandma had chosen for Huo Ge.
If it was not bad, he could consider interacting with that Miss Mu.
Hence, as soon as Huo Bing arrived at the banquet, his eyes searched for the so-called Miss Mu.
Unfortunately, he did not see any unfamiliar faces.
Therefore, he could only put the matter of Miss Mu aside and start to entertain the guests who arrived one after another.
When Wen Yu accompanied Mu Ning, he was extremely unwilling, but there was nothing he could do. After all, his grandmother had specially asked him to be the escort to accompany her beloved granddaughter.
It took him an entire afternoon just to accompany Mu Ning for styling. He had lost several rounds of games. It was very boring.
Mu Ning was still a little nervous. This was the first time she had appeared at such a banquet.
In this circle, the younger ones basically had to be accompanied by the elders in their families. However, it was obviously unrealistic for Ye Wen’s situation.
It was impossible for Old Master to bring her along, and it was not suitable for her to attend the banquet.
The older ones could come themselves. Now that she was 18 years old, it was just right.
She had wanted to attend as the young lady of the Mu family.
Unfortunately, the Gong Family had considered Ye Wen’s situation and did not send an invitation at all. Naturally, she could not come shamelessly.
Therefore, when she came to the Huo Family this time, she wanted to reveal her identity as the Mu Family’s young lady in front of everyone. She wanted to really enter the upper-class society and not be limited to sneaking around in private.
Wen Yu looked at Mu Ning impatiently. However, when he thought of his grandmother’s request, he asked politely, “Are you going in now?”
He did not know why Mu Ning was standing there without moving, but since he had promised his grandmother that he would take good care of Mu Ning, he would.
Mu Ning took a deep breath and nodded with a polite smile. “Let’s go!”
With that, Mu Ning followed Wen Yu. The two of them handed in their invitations and entered the Huo Family.
Then, with the guide, they crossed the fake mountain, stream, and small bridge and arrived at a new Chinese-style reception hall. The banquet hall connected to the reception hall was already filled with music and was bustling.
When the two of them entered, many people in the banquet hall turned to look at them. When they saw Wen Yu, many people went forward to greet him warmly.
Lu Xiao patted Wen Yu’s shoulder and smiled. “You’re here? Why do you have a female companion today?”
Yue Chi also sized up Mu Ning and said meaningfully, “I didn’t expect you to secretly bring a female companion. How unkind!”
Wen Ying and Yue Ning also looked curiously at Mu Ning, who had come with
Wen Yu glanced at Lu Xiao angrily and said according to Old Madam Mu’s instructions, “Don’t talk nonsense. This is my cousin, Mu Ning.”
Wen Yu’s cousin?
Another one with the surname Mu?
Everyone felt that this matter was a little unbelievable. Where did this young lady from the Mu family come from?
Didn’t Old Master Mu only give birth to a son and a daughter?
His son, Mu Cheng, had three sons, and his daughter, Mu Yao, had also given birth to a son. Where did this daughter come from?
While everyone was puzzled, a surprised voice sounded. “Eh? Mu Ning? You’re here too?”
Everyone turned around and saw the Gong Family’s Miss, Gong Yue, approaching Mu Ning in surprise.
When Mu Ning saw her good friend, she smiled and said, “My Grandma asked me and my cousin to come out to attend the banquet, so I came.”
Gong Yue was a little surprised. Those who could attend the Huo Family’s banquet today were all of high status, but she clearly remembered that Mu Ning did not have any backing.
Gong Yue subconsciously asked, “Which Mu family are you from?”
