Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 553 – Charity Ball Part 2 of 3
“Wei Zai, we do not need to go and fetch our partners?” After dinner, Feng Yu felt something was off when his partner still has not arrived.
“No need, no need. They will go to the venue themselves. Let’s go there and wait for them.”
This Charity Ball was held in a country club. At the carpark of the building, Feng Yu finally saw his partner. It was her!
“Wei Zai, can you give me an explanation?” Feng Yu looked at Fu Guangwei coldly.
This is the beauty you are talking about? Why did Fu Mengying become the beauty? Don’t you know that we are at loggerheads? Why does this feel like your Fu Family is determined to force me to accept this lesbian?
“What’s wrong? Brother Feng, with my sister’s looks and body, she is still not considered a beauty? She can win Miss Hong Kong anything. In our circle of friends, my sister is famous for her beauty.”
“I had made myself very clear. It is impossible between your sister and me!” Feng Yu said.
“I do not have any other intentions. I had only asked her to be your partner at this ball. Brother Feng, you might not know, but it is difficult to find someone suitable to be your partner.”
“Really? Then why is she your partner?” Feng Yu pointed Yammie Lam who was walking towards them with Fu Mengying. You are able to get one of TVB’s goddess as your partner, why can’t you get another actress to be my partner?
“Brother Feng, it’s almost time. Don’t mind this nitty-gritty stuff. Sis hurry up.”
Yammie Lam walked over and held Fu Guangwei’s arm, while Feng Yu was in a staring contest with Fu Mengying. Suddenly Fu Mengying smiled sweetly and said in the sweetest voice possible: “Brother Feng……”
Fu Mengying sounded like the female lead in , Huang Rong calling her Guo Jing.
Be Feng Yu got to admit that Fu Mengying was indeed a beauty. She was nowhere inferior to his favorite actress, Chingmy Yau. He should be proud to have such a beauty as his partner. But the rumors of Fu Mengying was a lesbian had spread and those rich second generations might have heard of the talks. If Feng Yu attended the ball with her as his partner, he would become a laughing stock.
“Brother Feng Yu, please help me out. Once we entered the ball, you are free to dance with others.” If Feng Yu was not there, then Fu Mengying had to be Fu Guangwei’s partner. Although they will have a dance, and then both of them will be dancing with other people for the rest of the night.
Seeing the pitiful look on Fu Mengying’s face, Feng Yu remembered that if he had not disclosed her secrets, she might be able to hide it for a few more years.
Never mind. Just treat this as doing charity.
Feng Yu bend his arm and Fu Mengying immediately brighten up and quickly held on to him. Both of them start walking towards the elevator.
Fu Guangwei was monitoring both of them all this while. When he saw both of them were walking arms in arms, he was thinking in his heart. Everyone in my family knew the both of you were together. Why are you all still trying to hide it?
The ballroom of the private club was about the size of 3 basketball courts. There was a small stage, and beside the stage, there was a band. Around the ballroom, there were long tables full of desserts, food, and liquor. It was like a buffet. Near the walls, there were some chairs and small tables for the guests.
Fu Guangwei looked at the time and walked up the stage with his partner. He was the organizer of this charity ball.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, I am Fu Guangwei. A few days ago, I found out that XXX Children’s home has a group of disabled children from the papers. Some of them needed medical treatment, but the Home does not have the funds. This is why I thought of gathering all of us here to pool some money to help this poor children.…”
This reason was just a random excuse for Fu Guangwei to organize this ball. To all the guests, Fu Guangwei was able to host this ball, was because his father had given him some money to do business. He was only hosting this ball to show off.
Fu Mengying stood beside Feng Yu and explained to him softly how the charity ball in Hong Kong works. Later, everyone will be dancing in the dance floor, and a spotlight will stop randomly on someone, and that person will have to donate. Of course, there was no minimum amount for the donation. But these rich second generation will give at least 100,000 HKD.
After the dance, there will be a small auction. The females will be auctioning one of their personal belongs, like handbags or jewelry. Basically, their male counterparts will buy those items back for them. The rest of the crowd will pretend to bid for those items, but they will not purposely push the prices up.
Of course, there will be people who will bring some prized items to be auctioned. Everyone can bid for these items freely. The highest bidder wins. There will also be some singers here who put their voices up for bid.
Fu Mengying was standing very close to Feng Yu and Feng Yu could feel her hot breath on his face when she speaks. Feng Yu was very tempted. But when he thought of Fu Mengying’s status and her sexual orientation, the temptation disappeared.
Feng Yu must make things clear in front of Fu Guangwei after the ball.
Fu Guangwei ended his speech and announced the start of the ball.
Music started, and everyone starts to dance with their partners. Feng Yu and Fu Mengying also danced. Luckily, the steps were easy, and Feng Yu did not step on her toes. But Fu Mengying’s dance cannot be compared to Elena. During the dance, Feng Yu suddenly remembered Elena.
“Brother Feng Yu….”
“Call me by my name.” Damn, stop acting like a little girl!
Fu Mengyu clenched her teeth and forced a smile: “Feng Yu, this is arranged by my family. I also do not have a choice. I really do not have the intention of pestering you.”
“Really? Then why did Wei Zai tell me that you told your family that we are getting along well?” Feng Yu had almost thrown Fu Mengying off the car at a deserted bus stop previously. How can this be considered getting along well?
“That was just a casual remark. I did not mean that. I am not sure why my family thinks that both of us have been going out.” Fu Mengying was also puzzled why his father thinks that she likes Feng Yu.”
“Never mind. We will clear up this misunderstanding later.”
“Can we talk about this when we return? I still have other cousins here. I don’t want them to see me as a joke.” Fu Mengying begged.
Organizing a charity ball was a task too big for Fu Guangwei. He was known as a useless second rich generation, and the Fu family sent him some of his cousins to help out. Many people were there because of Fu Guangwei’s cousin. Fu Rongqi’s eldest son was still respected by many second generations.
Feng Yu looked at the rest of Fu Family’s second generations. He hesitated for a while and nodded. If he made things clear with Fu Guangwei now, he would be embarrassing Fu Mengying in front of many people. He decided to clear up this misunderstanding when they were returning home.
As the number slowly reaches the end, Feng Yu saw the couples around him preparing to make the ending moves. Feng Yu looked at Fu Mengying, and she got the hint. She released one hand and increases the distance between her and Feng Yu. Then she spun two rounds and stopped with Feng Yu supporting her back with one hand. She finishes the dance with a perfect pose.
At the same time, the spotlight above the dance floor stops moving as the music end. The spotlight was shone directly on Feng Yu and Fu Mengying!
