Chapter 35: Throwing Pearls to the Swine



 

The engagement day of Master Jackson and the youngest daughter of the Gale family.

 

This engagement banquet which had caused a huge sensation in the business world was held three days later at the same hotel.

 

As a sign of respect to Master Jackson, the guests arrived early and the grand ballroom was full of guests before nightfall.

 

Emily was accompanied by the servants to the makeup room. Outside, people mingled happily.

 

The .Jackson family had arrived. From the patriarch to the youngest daughter, every one of them was ideal partners.

 

The men seized the opportunity to mingle with the leaders of the business world.

 

The women, especially the young ones, makeup and dressed to their nines and presented their prettiest form.

 

"I heard that the second daughter of the Gale family was slapped by the youngest daughter."

 

"What? The youngest daughter hit the second daughter? Why?”

 

"Was it because the elder sister was too pretty and stole the limelight?"

 

"Apparently the third daughter is very ugly but the second daughter ¡is as beautiful as an angel?”

 

"What a pity, the one marrying Master .Jackson is the third daughter. With a younger sister who is ugly, nasty, and soon to have status, how will her days be?”

 

"The second sister should have someone to protect her. How can she suffer like this?"

 

The men listened to the rumors of Wendy being beaten by Emily and felt sorry for her.

 

When Emily came out, all sorts of rumors were spreading.

 

"So this is the third daughter of the Gale family. See, even with makeup her freckles can still be seen."

 

"Yeah, why did Master .Jackson agree to be engaged to this ugly woman? it's truly the beauty and the beast!"
