But Baili Hongzhaung was different.
Compared to Liu Qinyue’s delicate grace, Baili Hongzhuang’s clothes were very simple. She wore a basic white cheongsam, and her long hair was bound with only a single wooden hairpin.
Yet this simple style actually made Baili Hongzhuang stand out even more amongst the dust, creating a cold, ethereal image of a woman untouched by the secular world.
Her facial features didn’t look as soft or gentle as Liu Qinyue’s, but her face seemed filled with life. Her two phoenix eyes were like a deep pool, seeming as if they could pierce through a person’s heart, bright and dazzling.
The two each had their own merits, both fully deserving of being called beauties.
“I think between the two, it’s still Liu Qinyue that’s better. That pure, water like beauty is truly a feast for the eyes.”
“That’s not right. I heard that in an inn, Baili Hongzhuang and Tong Shengyi got into a fight. I think Liu Qinyue is beautiful, but only beautiful, lacking the aura of a cultivator. I actually like Baili Hongzhuang more.”
Everybody had different opinions and both sides had their own supporters. It was impossible to find one clear answer.
“Since we’re all friends, won’t it be better for us to all eat together?” Liu Qinyue suggested, “Big Brother Gong is also going to come soon.”
Hearing Gong Shaoqing was also coming, Baili Hongzhuang instantly lost interest. Just the thought of eating with that iceberg completely made the delicious food no longer appetizing at all.
“Thank you for the kind offer, but Zhiqing and I are fine eating in the lobby.” Baili Hongzhuang tactfully declined.
“Since we all ran into each other, then let’s stay together.” Dongfang Yu added, “We can all be considered to be brought upon together by fate.”
At this moment, a black figure entered the restaurant. Who else could it be apart from Gong Shaoqing?
When Gong Shaoqing came, everybody’s eyes turned envious. The target of their envy was naturally Xia Zhiqing.
In Azure Water School, different cultivators had different social circles and the special enrollment circle was the circle everybody wanted to be a part of.
Many of the cultivators within it would definitely turn into great and famous figures. If they could become their friend, in the future, they’d have a relationship with a strong and knowledgeable figure. That in itself was a great achievement for them.
Baili Hongzhuang was a special enrollment student, so she was already a part of the circle from the beginning. But Xia Zhiqing was only an ordinary student and managed to meet Azure Water School’s famed figures because of Baili Hongzhuang. How could they not envy her?”
“Dongfang Yu, Gong Shaoqing, and Liu Qinyue always had a good relationship, but I didn’t expect for them to suddenly invite Baili Hongzhuang and Xia Zhiqing too today. It’s really enviable.”
Gong Shaoqing’s eyes froze for a few seconds when he saw Baili Hongzhuang. He clearly hadn’t expected for Baili Hongzhuang to be here as well.
“Gong Shaoqing, you came.” Dongfang Yu smiled, “I’m done with the teacher’s assignment.”
Gong Shaoqing still treated his words like gold and simply grunted a reply, unwilling to spend even a single word.
“Big brother Gong, we just happened to run across junior sister Baili here and invited them to eat with us.”
Gong Shaoqing glanced at Baili Hongzhuang and didn’t speak.
“Shall we go? The foods and drinks were already sent up.” Liu Qinyue spoke up.
Seeing Liu Qinyue being so cordial, Baili Hongzhuang couldn’t refuse, so she went with Dongfang Yu and the others to the second-floor room.
Xia Zhiqing also knew that Baili Hongzhaung wasn’t afraid to disturb Liu Qinyue and the others, but she simply didn’t want to go. However, she could only keep silent.
After all, she was a stranger to them. Interrupting wouldn’t be appropriate.
“I ordered a bit of food to accompany the wine. Junior sister Baili, you two should take a look. If it’s not to your liking, you can order some other dishes?”
