Whispering into Fan Lingxin's ear, Tang Xinyue looked at the gazes of the guests. "Be ready about the gift."
"But Sister Xinyue, you said that it was going to be you who will give this gift, and I give this one."
Fan Lingxin placed both her hands under the table, each one with a box. It was their gifts to Qin Huiying.
Tang Xinyue glared at the boxes. She remembered it well: in her past life, Tang Xinyue took her out for shopping.
They bought gifts for Li Xia's mother's upcoming birthday.
While Tang Xinyue got herself a pair of earrings, which Qin Huiying would utterly like, Fan Lingxin bought a necklace that clashed against Qin Huiying's appearance.
With her being completely oblivious to the other party's plan, she was framed and set up for being unthoughtful and materialistic.
On the other hand, Tang Xinyue received praise for her thought filled gift. In the end, Tang Xinyue apologized to Fan Lingxin, saying that she did not know the particular tastes of Mrs. Li.
Naive as she was, Fan Lingxin forgave her immediately.
Now, she was in the same situation. There were two gifts in Fan Lingxin's hand. One was the necklace, and the other was a pair of earrings.
A dillema struck Tang Xinyue. On one hand, she didn't want to ruin Fan Lingxin's reputation any further, but on the other, hers couldn't be ruined as well, since she now lived inside this body.
Naturally, she would desire to be liked more than in her past life.
Noticing the stifled look on Tang Xinyue's face, Qin Huiying thought that the former worried about whether she would like the gift or not.
"Xinyue, what are you so worried about?"
The other ladies followed Qin Huiying's gaze and saw Tang Xinyue as well. They came to the same conclusion.
"There's nothing to be afraid of."
"It's the thought that counts!"
"What are you acting so shy for? It's bound to be good."
Hearing the ladies reassure her, Tang Xinyue nodded her head, but inside, she grinned.
Her acting skills paid off!
Even though she was about to give the necklace to her, Qin Huiying couldn't possibly get angry now, while Fan Lingxin would give her the earrings.
Neither of their reputations would be tarnished.
Tang Xinyue got the box on Fan Lingxin's right hand and shyly presented it to Qin Huiying.
Qin Huiying opened the box, and inside was... a pair of earrings.
"Oh! I love them!" She tried them on immediately and asked for a mirror to look into.
"Do I look good?"
Nervous, Tang Xinyue looked behind her and saw that she gave the wrong gift. She muttered curses under her breath.
Fan Lingxin was still cheerful as she waved at the approaching Tang Xinyue.
How? How did I pick the wrong box? The one on Fan Lingxin's right hand should be the necklace.
Seeing her best friend's confused face, Fan Lingxin patted her back. "It's fine, Sister Xinyue. Look, mother likes it."
When Tang Xinyue saw the genuine smile on Fan Lingxin's face, her heart started to shatter. This... I need to fix this.
