Jiang Shuwan usually woke up late, but she woke up early today. She asked the stylist who she had hired to dress her.
“Nuannuan, are you awake? Go have your breakfast. After you’re done, come do your makeup.”
“No thanks, mom. You go ahead. I’m going for a jog.”
“No way! You’re the female lead for today’s banquet. Come over here to get your makeup done.”
“Mom, I don’t need it. I’ll do it myself.” Zhong Nuannuan went out the door after drinking a glass of warm water.
She did not have holes in her brain. If she had really sat down and allowed her mother’s stylist to do her makeup, she would end up looking like a clown during the banquet.
Seeing how Zhong Nuannuan had completely ignored her, Jiang Shuwan said to Zhong Kuijun who was standing at one side, “You’re always saying that I don’t treat her well, but look at her. Does she even see me as her mom? I offered to help her get dressed because I’m in a good mood, but she doesn’t even appreciate my kind gesture.”
“You’re saying that Nuannuan is not treating you as her mother just because she had refused to let you do her makeup? Then were you treating her as your daughter when you pulled off that stunt in front of her and Chi Yang? It’s not a big deal if she doesn’t want to do her makeup. Why are you making such a big fuss about it? Nuannuan was born pretty, so she doesn’t need to put on any makeup. She would still be the most beautiful girl in the room.”
Zhong Kuijun was in a good mood because the military base’s commander in chief, Lee Jinpeng, was coming. Zhong Kuijun was just a commander, but he could now enjoy all this honor thanks to Chi Yang. His love for Zhong Nuannuan outweighed his love for Zhong Qianqian at this moment.
After being lashed out at by Zhong Kuijun, Jiang Shuwan could only pout while continuing to let her stylist put on makeup on her.
However, the corner of her lips curled into a sarcastic smile the moment Zhong Kuijun turned around.
Did she think that she would be fine if she did not do her makeup?
Zhong Nuannuan ran to the backyard where she did her stretches for about ten minutes. This was her usual spot as barely anyone passed by this area, and there were also a lot of trees here. With no one around, she could properly enjoy the silence.
After just three minutes of stretching, she spotted a silhouette inside the mansion.
Even though the figure disappeared in a flash, Zhong Nuannuan was sure that it was Zhong Qianqian.
Zhong Qianqian’s study and piano room were on the second floor, but she should be on the third floor doing her makeup. Why was she on the second floor?
Suddenly, she remembered something. Zhong Nuannuan squinted her eyes like a raccoon. Without much thought, she leaped and landed on the window of the second floor. With her light and flexible body, she managed to pull off the stunt without alerting anyone else in the mansion.
It took her less than three seconds to climb into the window.
At this moment, she heard the door to her bedroom open. One did not have to think twice to know where Zhong Qianqian was.
Zhong Nuannuan’s footsteps were light. No one noticed that she was around.
When Zhong Nuannuan stepped into her room, she saw Zhong Qianqian with a pair of scissors in her hand. Her eyes were filled with jealousy. She had already opened Zhong Nuannuan’s closet and was about to cut her gown.
Zhong Qianqian was standing sideways from Zhong Nuannuan. She would notice Zhong Nuannuan if she shifted her gaze just a little.
However, she was too focused on her mission, so she did not notice Zhong Nuannuan at all.
The pair of scissors were inching toward the gown. If Zhong Qianqian brought it any closer, this 7.5 million dollar Venia gown would be destroyed.
