Ms. Doctor Divine - Chapter 95
Chaoyan! Wasn’t Chaoyan the famous ugly girl of the Gu Family?
Princess Gu still could not believe that. This so-called ugly girl had not only become prettier, but also befriended Lord Huai! She threw a glance at Madame Gu behind their backs, hoping to get confirmation from her about the real identity of this girl.
Madame Gu got Princess Gu’s look and showed a proud smile on her face full of wrinkles. She nodded slightly.
Princess Gu got both startled and glad. She was about to talk with Gu Chaoyan to show their family relationship, when Lord Huai said before anyone did. “Now she is here, I am off. Take good care of Chaoyan!”
The words had just been spoken, when Lord Huai left. Princess Virtue here was one of the top four princesses whilst Princess Gu was one of the princesses in the imperial court with a relatively lower level too. Yet Lord Huai did not need to show any courtesy towards them.
“See you around, Lord Huai!” Princess Virtue and Princess Gu said.
A long while later, Lord Huai finally disappeared out of sight.
Princess Virtue asked in confusion, “Lady Chaoyan, which family are you from?”
Lord Huai was calling her by her given name, namely Chaoyan rather than mentioning her family name, so Princess Virtue had no idea where this lady was from. Also, she was a stranger to her, though she had met most of the ladies from different families, unless the lady was not the lineal daughter. However, normally, daughters of concubines were not invited to the imperial court. That was why she found it confusing, when she found this new lady speaking with Lord Huai.
Hearing the question, Madame Gu said instantly before Chaoyan could answer. Her well-weathered face was full of pride. “Princess Virtue, Chaoyan is the daughter of our family.”
Princess Virtue looked at Madame Gu with disbelief and then at Princess Gu next to her.
A lady from the Gu Family! How did anyone from the Gu Family get to be a good friend with Lord Huai?
As far as she remembered, the daughter of the Gu Family was both chubby and ugly, and her engagement had just been cancelled too. Because of this daughter of the Gu Family, Princess Gu had been laughed at by peers in the imperial court for a long time, but now…
Princess Virtue was not very glad, yet Princess Gu showed a bright expression on her face. Years had gone before, and she finally gained some nice reputation for herself at Biquan Palace! It was the correct decision to invite Gu Chaoyan!
“Princess Virtue, let’s just receive them inside the Palace, please.” Princess Gu reminded her.
Princess Virtue came back to herself. She was still displeased, yet she had to show some manners. So she led the guests indoors.
As they came into Biquan Palace, it became Princess Gu who was out there receiving the Gu Family and Madame Duke Changning.
Princess Virtue was one of the top princesses with a much more noble status. The reason why she was out there receiving the Gu Family was only because Lord Huai had been there. She would not have shown up herself if Lord Huai had not been there.
Not many people were at Biquan Palace by this hour.
The ladies and madams who arrived first were normally from a family with a relatively low rank.
The Gu Family was one such family.
Duke Changning’s Mansion was no better, except that the Duke Changning’s Mansion had a marquis rank.
With her own family around, Princess Gu asked for a word with Madame Gu in a corner, inquiring rapidly, “Mom, what is it going on? How did Gu Chaoyan get to know Lord Huai? Look at how Princess Virtue took it just now! She helped me to raise my reputation!”
Madame Gu knew the answer, but she had not expected that Lord Huai would have helped them to this degree.
“It is said that he appreciates Chaoyan’s medical skills, and asked her for help back at the Huo Family!”
