The banquet continued. It was difficult for Miss Dong to refuse the proposals of so many people. Sitting behind the gauze curtain, she said with a faint smile, “Since you are looking forward to my performance, I will set the ball rolling again by playing Go Astray for you. I am looking forward to your advice about my shortcomings!”
After that, her maidservant placed a Guzheng in front of her. The strings were golden and silvery. The Guzheng was made of extraordinary ancient wood. Apparently, it was a precious musical instrument. Through the gauze curtain, people could clearly see Miss Dong raising her arms and plucking the strings of the Guzheng gently.
Then, the beautiful sounds of the Guzheng started to echo throughout the entire building. All the people were listening carefully, holding their breaths. The atmosphere among the listeners became immediately intense.
As she continued to play the Guzheng without vocal accompaniment, it seemed as if the music was telling a story or Miss Dong was telling a story of herself. Her musical sounds were filled with solitary expectations, as well as an agonizing helplessness.
One of Xu Que’s identities was as a 4-Star Musician. Even though he was not that good at music, he could figure out that Miss Dong was trying to pursue a new life from her musical sounds. Just like a person who had stayed in the dark night for a long time, she eagerly hoped she could see a strand of sunlight, which could light up her life and break the darkness and bring new changes to her.
Actually, she was just a spoiled girl who was tired of the carefree life. Normally, a good spanking would solve her problem. However, he couldn’t spank her at this moment. Xu Que had to find other methods.
It seems I should start by solving the inanity and loneliness of this Miss Dong! Xu Que smiled to himself. Now that he had figured out her heartfelt wishes, he knew what she wanted. This would help him when he acted tough later.
Of course, a lot of people in the area were good at music. So Xu Que was not the only one who figured out the hidden message in the musical sound. Some people who were more skillful than Xu Que in music even figured out more hidden messages from the musical sound. After a while, the music ended. The building was very quiet. Some people were shocked as if they were still immersed in the musical sound. Some people started to smile confidently.
“Miss Dong, you are really good at music! We are totally impressed by your music! No wonder you are the No.1 talented girl in the First Realm City! I really admire you!” A young man stood up and said, folding his hands reverently.
People around him also nodded their heads to show their support.
“Right! After enjoying this composition, I was so intoxicated that I even forgot the passage of time!”
“Frankly speaking, Miss Dong, I underestimated you before. I hereby make an apology to you by drinking this cup of tea, which is used to replace wine!” Someone said earnestly. Then he drank a cup of tea.
Sitting beside them, Xu Que was also about to praise Miss Dong. However, when he saw that everyone else was praising her, he hesitated for a moment. Then he started to shake his head disdainfully. However, Xu Que was still being ignored by the rest of the people. But antipathy and annoyance started to flash in their eyes.
Behind the gauze curtain, a pair of shocking eyes were also tossed toward Xu Qu, either inadvertently or by design.
Xu Que started to shake his head more vigorously, as if he really detested this composition.
Are you kidding? You’ve finished your lavish praise. How could the Act-Tough Saint follow you? Moreover, the Act-Tough Saint always acts extraordinarily. Do you think I could be the same as you?
“Guys, you flatter me. Please forgive me if I made mistakes just now!” Miss Dong who was sitting behind the gauze curtain said in a low voice at this time.
She ignored Xu Que’s rudeness again and didn’t mention him.
The rest of the people in this area also ignored Xu Que and continued to praise Miss Dong.
Xu Que couldn’t stand it anymore. This was the most unaccustomed thing to him. A lot of flatterers were surrounding the unbelievably modest Miss Dong. The more modest she behaved, the harder those people flattered her. What a bunch of hypocritical people! ( .c om )
“Guys, I’ve finished my performance. Now, it is your turn!” Miss Dong said again at this time.
Xu Que was about to stand up. However, he didn’t expect someone would be faster than him.
A man in a blue robe in the front row, who was well-prepared, plucked the Guqin on the table in front of him. His first musical note attracted everyone in the area immediately. The man in blue robe said with a faint smile, “Guys, I made a new composition recently. Today, I will play it for the first time. Please forgive me for all possible deficiencies in it!”
Instantly, a lot of people in this area couldn’t help but gasp.
Several young men around Xu Que started to chat about it in a low voice.
“My god! Does this mean Lu Zhouhe has made a new composition again?”
“He is the No. 1 musician in our city. He has gotten plenty of praise from many musical masters. Some of these masters even admire his talents!”
“Anyway, Lord Lu really should make a new composition. His last composition was made five years ago. During this period, he realized rapid progress and even made a new composition!”
“We should cock our ears to enjoy his composition this time. I bet it will gain popularity in the entire city again!”
After saying that, they started to wait with an expression of expectancy.
Xu Que was shocked a bit. His expression became a little bit serious. The reason for his self-confidence was that he could find a lot of famous musical compositions on Earth with the help of the System.
However, according to the conversation among these young men just now, as well as the high-quality composition of Miss Dong, he had to treat it seriously. After all, different places had different cultures. If Lu Zhouhe was really a genius in music who could make compositions which could rival the famous compositions on Earth, Xu Que would feel great pressure.
Lu Zhouhe placed his fingers on the Guqin. Then a crisp and clear musical note echoed in the building abruptly.
After hearing the first musical note, Xu Que really started to feel great pressure. He was almost sure that this composition would also be globally famous on Earth! Because this composition was made attentively. A clear and far-reaching prospect was contained in this composition, together with many sentiments of the composer. For example, it contained understandings about life, the Heavens, the Earth, and everything in this world. It could create a feeling of harmony between man and nature when people were on a high mountain!
In short, it was absolutely an extraordinary high-end composition! The rest of the people in this area started to express their admiration and exclamation!
Xu Que saw Miss Dong’s admiring expression through the gauze curtain. However, deep in her eyes, he could see some indifference. Realistically, it seemed like disappointment. ( .c om )
What? Xu Que was surprised.
This makes no sense!
Normally, Lu Zhouhe was much better than Miss Dong in music.
Also, his composition was classic, which was more sophisticated than Miss Dong’s Go Astray. How could she have this heartfelt disappointment after hearing his composition?
If a comparison was to be made, Lu Zhouhe’s composition was just like classical music on Earth, which was quite meaningful.
Miss Dong’s Go Astray was just like pop music on the Earth, which was folksy and consistent with the public taste.
However, as a girl from a rich family, she should be fond of classical music like Lu Zhouhe’s composition! Could it be that his composition was not something she wanted?
Xu Que couldn’t help but furrow his eyebrows as he planned to play the masterpieces of famous musicians like Beethoven after Lu Zhouhe.
Now, he had to change his plan. He shook his head habitually as if he was thinking of something.
Since she didn’t like high-end classical music or pop music, what does Miss Dong want?
Maybe I could try The Hottest Ethnic Trend first!
If she doesn’t like it, I could play the 8 Kills!
What if she doesn’t like that either?
Should I use my ace card by playing the Get Plastered Alone directly?
Alas! It is so difficult to make a choice. What an unspeakable melancholy!
