Chapter 1121: Won by a Nose
Living the life of a wealthy wife now, Chen Lixue wanted to show off being the Fourth Madame of the Su family to Liang Xiuqin.
So she specially invited her to have afternoon tea at the Jingdu Grand Hotel.
The prices at the Jingdu Grand Hotel were even higher than those of ordinary five-star hotels.
For example, it would cost Liang Xiuqin a month of her living expenses to have afternoon tea with five or six other people.
So Liang Xiuqin had never set foot in this place since she didnt have any desire to torture herself with what she couldnt have.
Chen Lixue took Su Zongpings hotel membership card and decided to splurge for once, as she really wanted to redeem herself after the huge embarrassment shed suffered in front of Liang Xiuqin.
Chen Lixue also invited a few ladies from some of the other wealthy families, who wanted to get to know her and stay on her good side.
If there were more people with her it would be easier for her to get support when she was humiliating Liang Xiuqin.
This would also be more humiliating for Liang Xiuqin, and Chen Lixue would get a sense of satisfaction from it.
It had been Liang Xinyis idea to invite more people.
Chen Lixue thought it was a good idea, so she immediately called to invite the other ladies.
Although Su Zongping wasnt favored in the Su family, he was still a part of the Su family.
And, even though it was Chen Lixues second marriage, she had still married into the Su family.
So, there were still many wealthy ladies from the less prestigious families who were trying to curry favors with her.
Her birth status and everything else no longer mattered.
Everyone knew that they would all grasp any opportunities to gain advantages for future interests.
The wealthy ladies all understood how it worked in this circle.
So even if they knew Chen Lixue had been born in the countryside and had been a village woman, they would still kiss up to her now that she was the Fourth Madame of the Su family.
When Liang Xiuqin arrived at the hotel, she saw a few ladies sitting around Chen Lixue praising her.
They were talking about how she had maintained her figure and how she didnt look her age.
They were showering her with all sorts of praises without even blinking.
Liang Xiuqin sneered and walked toward them with her aura as a directors wife.
So what if Chen Lixue was the Fourth Madame of the Su family Liang Xiuqin was still a directors wife.
Although the two families were on different levels, Liang Xiuqin doesnt feel that she was in any way inferior to Chen Lixue.
“Youre here!” Chen Lixue did not stand to greet Liang Xiuqin.
Instead, she introduced her casually to the other wealthy ladies.
“This is Mrs.
Yun, the wife of the Urban Construction Bureaus Director.”
It was good that one could work in the Urban Construction Bureau, and it was definitely not easy to become the director.
However, some had met the director of the Urban Construction Bureau before, so they immediately changed their attitude when they saw Liang Xiuqin.
Chen Lixue did not know what it meant to hold a position in the Urban Construction Bureau.
She also didnt realize that many design and real estate business owners would do anything to pull strings in the bureau for advantages.
She only knew the differences between a Director and a Deputy Director.
However, she did not realize that the husbands of these ladies had been trying to gain connections in the Urban Construction Bureau.
As soon as Chen Lixue saw all the ladies kissing up to Liang Xiuqin, she realized she probably had missed out on something.
Chen Lixue had initially wanted to show off and humiliate Liang Xiuqin.
She had not expected these wealthy ladies to swing over to Liang Xiuqins side so that they could get some help pulling some strings for their husbands businesses.
Liang Xiuqin gloated at the sullen expression on Chen Lixues face.
Compared to Chen Lixue, Liang Xiuqin was far more familiar with all these women.
After all, she used to have many afternoon tea appointments.
So when Liang Xiuqin found out about their families businesses, she understood why they were flattering and complimenting her.
Now, it seemed as if her title as the wife of the Urban Construction Bureaus Director was better than Chen Lixues status as the Fourth Madame of the Su family.
Liang Xiuqin had won by a nose in this little fight.
But Liang Xiuqin did not intend to argue with Chen Lixue in front of these wealthy ladies.
After the wealthy ladies had left, Liang Xinyi came back to the hotel after she had been shopping around the neighborhood.
Liang Xinyi lost all her cautious attitude once she saw Liang Xiuqin.
Instead, she started acting like she was a Su family heiress, arrogant and contemptuous of others.
