Gu Xietian was satisfied with the way Gu Xijiu dressed, and these were the best two words to describe it - low profile!
The rest of his daughters donned their best dresses with plenty of accessories to make themselves looked like angels or fairies. Gu Xijiu wore a simple light purple dress and tied her hair with a similar-colored ribbon. Half of her long hair was lying on her shoulder, and she carried a jade bracelet as her only accessory. Her small face looked clean and fair with some fringe to cover her forehead. Her lips looked slightly more pinkish than usual, but she did not put on any makeup. That was her natural beauty! She did not stand out amongst all her sisters, but the red birthmark on her face Sigh!
Gu Xietian felt something strange. An ordinary man would not pay any attention to this daughter. However, the Crown Prince seemed to focus on Gu Xijiu since she sat down at the table.
The Crown Prince was such a charming and elegant person who hardly expressed his facial expressions, hence, typically no one knew what he was thinking. However, even a careless man like Gu Xietian could sense his intention! He did not even bother to hide his interest!
He hardly talked, but he would take a glance at Gu Xijiu when he spoke. He seemed to care a lot about her response! What was wrong with the Crown Prince? What was he trying to do? Was the birthmark attractive to him? Gu Xietian was wondering
"He is looking at you. He is still looking at you. Look! He is looking at you again" The Firmament Stone Bracelet was nagging at Gu Xijiu.
"Shut up!" Gu Xijiu was irritated. She was fiddling with her chopstick within her fingers and wanted to hit the jade bangle on her wrist.
"Master, do you think he can recognize you?" The Firmament Stone Bracelet asked in suspicion.
Gu Xijiu remained silent as she wondered. Rong Jialuo's actions showed that he could recognize her. Even if he did not recognize her, he must have suspected something. Besides that, she felt something was wrong and wondered whether the reason for Rong Jialuo's visit was to come after her.
"Miss Gu? Miss Gu?"
Gu Xijiu recovered from her deep thoughts and saw that Rong Jialuo was looking at her with a glass of wine, "May I know if Miss Gu has any medical knowledge?"
"Just a little." Gu Xijiu answered conservatively.
"A little? What do you mean by that?"
"Ive read a few books related to medicines." Gu Xijiu answered carefully.
Rong Jialuo nodded and said, "I respect those who have medical knowledge. Cheers!" He got up and passed a glass to Gu Xijiu.
Oh no! She was not supposed to let the Crown Prince stand while she was sitting. Gu Xijiu quickly stood up and lifted the glass,"Apologies, Your Highness! I should be the one to fill your glass with wine. Thank you." Gu Xijiu finished the entire glass of wine and then sat down after lifting her empty glass to Rong Jialuo.
She suddenly realized she had done something wrong after she sat down! The ladies in this world were very polite even when they drank. They only took a sip, especially for daughters from affluent families. They even had to cover their face with their sleeve when they drank it.
However, she finished it in a mouthful! She drank faster than most men would! This made people shocked
Gu Xijiu took a glance at everyone and realized all her sisters were shocked. Gu Xietian was more shocked! The Crown Prince who was sitting beside her showed an upset facial expression
