Marisa revealed an excited smile and nodded.

After Duke Biggs finished briefing his daughter, he walked in the direction that the prince and Meng had departed in. And indeed, not too long later, Meng came back first, alone. She appeared to still be somewhat giddy. It wasn’t surprising that she was still a bit dazed after she had danced with a prince among the flowers under the moonlight. It simply was a scene that would only happen in a dream.

“Hey!” Marisa coldly greeted Meng.

Meng abruptly came back to her senses and looked at Marisa oddly. “Is something the matter?”

“Do you want that sword back?” Marisa revealed a malicious smile.

Walking to the palace gates, when nearly all of the daughters of noble houses were coming by carriage, Meng looked very strange on foot. In addition, such an elegantly dressed girl carrying a sword on her back made it even more bizarre. However, what was even stranger was that no one was alarmed by the sword. Even the guards at the entrance didn’t ask Meng any questions about it and allowed her to enter.

“Walking here? That would make a gown filthy, especially one in Prince Edward’s favorite pure white.”

That voice sounded slightly familiar. Meng looked in its direction suspiciously. As expected, it was someone they had met previously, Duke Biggs’s daughter, Marisa. The dress she was wearing was very familiar too. It was the one Sword Spirit had immediately taken a liking to. The mermaid-style skirt worn on her tall figure emphasized her beautiful curves. Her entire person was gorgeous beyond compare.

“A peacock wearing white is still a peacock,” Sword Spirit said offhandedly.

Meng couldn’t help letting a laugh escape. This made Marisa very unhappy. She had mocked Meng, but hearing that laugh, she felt like she was the one being mocked instead.

Time passed by quite quickly. In game, Meng and Sword Spirit’s work at the dress shop went very smoothly. Even the boss couldn’t help making shoes, a hat, and a pair of gloves to reward her for her hard work. Prince Edward often came to the shop as well, speaking with both Meng and Sword Spirit frequently. Although Sword Spirit didn’t want to admit this, Prince Edward looked like he had a favorable impression of Meng. What a miracle!

Every time Edward came to the dress shop, Ye Meng Ling would be exceptionally busy outside the game the next day because Lin Jian Yin’s face would always be twisted beyond human recognition.

Even though he was that way, Ye Meng Ling could still successfully reduce Lin Jian Yin’s frequency of smashing objects. Their opinion was very well matched, too, so that Lin Jian Yin almost couldn’t find any shows he was dissatisfied about or didn’t want to attend among the assignments.

“You can leave early today.”

Lin Jian Yin told Ye Meng Ling in a neutral way. In reality, he knew that today was special. Ye Meng Ling couldn’t focus today either and looked like she had a heavy load on her mind. If it were a usual day, Lin Jian Yin would have started to scold her, but he forgave her just for today. After all, a ball plus a perfect prince would be enough for any woman to lose focus.

“Can I?” Ye Meng Ling appeared to be very shocked.

Sword Spirit’s unhappiness was reflected in the real life version of Lin Jian Yin as well. During the past few days, he had thrown and broken countless microphones for all sorts of bewildering reasons: the sound was inaccurate, the feeling while holding it was off, the smell was disgusting… Unfortunately, his manager was busy arranging his jobs, and he didn’t know where she had disappeared to in the past few days. This caused him to throw microphones even more frequently.

At the moment, Lin Jian Yin was sitting in a lounge after having just finished storming about, and no one dared to come inside and seek their own deaths; however, a few people waited outside on standby. If Lin Jian Yin wanted someone and found nobody around, then they would die even more painfully.

When the suffering workers waiting outside spotted Ye Meng Ling coming over, they immediately showed expressions of deep gratitude; nearly everybody in the company was aware that Ye Meng Ling was the only person capable of suppressing Lin Jian Yin, and that so far, she was also the most successful of his managers.

Ye Ming Ling forced a smile on her lips and waved at the people waiting outside, indicating that they could leave. They glowed with appreciative expressions. As they made their quick escapes, they also gave Ye Meng Ling sympathetic looks.

He didn’t really seem to care much about the price of the dress. When Edward casually waved his hand, the two people behind him immediately took out a wallet and moved toward the store clerk. When she saw that he really was about to pay for her, Meng shouted loudly, “Wait! What are you doing?”

Surprised, Edward replied after hemming and hawing, “I believe… In my opinion, it’s very rude to let a lady pay, so you shouldn’t worry about the expenses of the dress. Just take it as compensation for not being able to welcome you appropriately last time.”

“You can’t do that!” Meng said quickly.

“Meng?” Sword Spirit never thought that Meng would interrupt his carefully planned set-up. The dress was already within grasp, too.

But Meng was very determined. “This is my very first dress, so I want to buy it myself. I don’t want it to be some sort of small compensation.”

Sword Spirit was taken aback. “But we don’t have any money.”

“We’ll come here again tomorrow morning and ask the boss to let me work here, so that I can make up for the money. I want to earn it myself.” Meng seemed to be very resolute and left no room for discussion.

Sword Spirit, who was used to Meng not having any opinions, was majorly surprised by her determination this time. Who would have thought that Meng would be so persistent about this kind of thing, that because it would be her first dress, she would want to buy it herself? But Sword Spirit wasn’t able to scold her. Quite to the contrary, he appreciated this way of thinking.

“Is that so?” Someone refusing his presents also appeared to be a first for Edward. He didn’t mind. Rather, it was a novelty for him.

Meng nodded at him.

Edward showed a brilliant smile. “On that note, I wish you a pleasant time at work. I’ll be coming again a few more times. I hope to meet you here again.”

Seeing Edward’s brilliant smile, Meng had long been frozen on the spot and could only nod her head slowly. At the same time she thought to herself, If only a certain person would smile at me like that…

The store clerk said in an exaggerated fashion, “If even Your Highness says so, okay, okay, you can work here to earn the money for the dress. I’m sure even the boss wouldn’t dare to go against the prince’s wishes.”

When she heard that she was hired, Meng was so happy that she threw Sword Spirit into the air and shouted joyfully, “That’s great!”

“Hey hey hey, you ugly woman, what do you think I am! I’m a sword. Careful, or you’ll cut your hand!” Sword Spirit yelled worriedly. In his heart, however, he was happy for Meng.

After the warning, Meng’s eyes widened, and she watched the sword fall from midair. She didn’t catch him, but shrieked and dodged, letting Sword Spirit clash onto the floor. A metallic clang sounded through the room. As he yelped in pain, he said through clenched teeth, “You lousy bitch!”

Meng quickly picked him up and apologized endlessly, but Sword Spirit was so angry that he didn’t want to forgive her.

By the side, Edward was smiling happily.

Face solemn, Meng held the sword while two men stood beside her with the same serious expression. Their attention was focused on the same thing. Meng breathed in deeply and after she focused her eyes, the sword in her hand glided out in a straight and precise line. A long, ripping sound could be heard, and happy expressions appeared on the faces of the two men by her side.

Beads of sweat dripped down from Meng’s face, and the men quickly gave her a towel she could wipe her sweat with. Meng’s movements grew quicker. Only the sword’s afterimage could be seen, the ripping sounds unending.

At last, she slowly put away her sword, and her mouth drew into a satisfied smile, as the two men gathered to take a look.

“Great! The cloth has been cut cleanly and precisely, even better than being cut with my golden scissors,” said the boss with endless praise.

The store clerk added on his compliments as well. “Amazing. You cut exactly along the lines the boss drew. Even though I’ve been doing this for many years, I can’t necessarily do any better than you.”

Meng lowered her head, embarrassed by the many compliments. Sword Spirit also opened his eyes and shouted proudly, “That’s because I have such a sharp edge!”

“Ah, I see Prince Edward has arrived,” the store clerk announced gleefully. At the same time, he exchanged a knowing glance with the boss.

“This early?” Surprised, Meng turned her head, but there was no one in sight. Turning back, she saw that the boss and the store clerk were suppressing their laughter.

“You foolish woman.”

Sword Spirit couldn’t refrain from grumbling. He was very annoyed about Meng hurriedly turning her head as soon as the name Edward was mentioned.

“Meng.” Edward’s voice really came from behind Meng this time.

Turning around with some shock, Meng saw Edward’s perfect smile right before her eyes. She asked, dumbfounded, “Why are you here so early today?”

Edward’s smile became even more radiant. “I finished my work earlier than usual because I wanted to come here as soon as possible.”

“Oh.” Meng lowered her head in shyness and continued cutting her cloth, but she didn’t notice that she was cutting the cloth into shreds.

Edward was also looking at the pile of cloth with a happy smile. Moreover, after the cloth couldn’t be cut into any more pieces, he even took another one and laid it down in front of her, so that Meng could continue with her way of shredding the cloth into tatters, without paying attention to what she was actually doing.

“Ugh.” A moment of inattention led to her overlooking Sword Spirit’s eyes and mouth. He directly banged against the table’s surface. However, Meng herself obviously didn’t notice Sword Spirit’s wail.

“You have to come to the ball,” Edward couldn’t help reminding Meng.

“Okay…”

Even though Meng grew even shyer with her head lowered, Sword Spirit, who was in her grasp, could see everything very clearly. Actually, he should be delighted that Meng had captured the prince’s attention—it was practically a miracle—yet, he was definitely unhappy. Meng being spaced out made him unhappy; her reddening face made him unhappy; every word Meng used to answer Edward made him unhappy!
