Chapter 141 A Shrewd Woman
When the two ladies entered the hall, many guests were already there. Many of them gazed at the entrance to find out who the next guest was so they could immediately curry favor with any big shots that might arrive.
What came into the guests’ sight were two young women.
Standing on the left was a lady dressed in a light blue tube gown. The gown had no extravagant decoration but only had a few stripes. She also wore a blue stone necklace. The pendant was not dazzling, but it perfectly complemented the blue gown, causing the guests to fix their gaze on this woman.
Elisa had a good body figure to begin with, and she looked even more charming in this outfit.
Her curly hair cascaded down her back. The butterfly-shaped hair clip on her hair enhanced her elegant and gentle look. The sophisticated aura emanated by Elisa was so unique that one could never replicate it.
At that moment, many guests were already charmed by her beauty.
On the other hand, Rachel was meticulously dressed too. She wore a pink gown that was embellished with diamonds. Her straight legs were fair and tender, and her slender waist was irresistible. Besides, she also applied delicate makeup on her lovely face.
Nonetheless, Rachel could still sense the guests’ eyes were fixated on Elisa.
She sighed in resignation. “I shall keep a distance away from you next time. I was very confident in my look, but you attracted everyone’s attention when I stand beside you. You’re so attractive that I’m like a piece of coal in comparison.”
Hearing Rachel’s complaint, Elisa laughed in spite of herself. “Since when did you learn to deprecate yourself?”
“My foot! I’m just stating the obvious. Look at those men. They just can’t take their eyes off you! You didn’t even wear any makeup today and you already picked a gown with minimal design, yet they are still attracted to you. Damn, beautiful women are the most wicked. They won’t know how wicked you are!”
Amused, Elisa blurted, “Yeah, indeed. Tonight, you shall witness how wicked I can be.”
Rachel chuckled. “Sure. We’ll see.”
Finally, everyone regained their composure from being stunned by Elisa’s beauty. As much as the women were green with envy, they were not willing to admit Elisa was indeed naturally striking.
At the same time, some guests started discussing among themselves. “Why is Elisa Benett here? I can’t believe she dares to come given how awkward her identity is currently. Don’t tell me she wants to take this opportunity to reconcile with Gareth.”
“Reconcile? That’s impossible. She was the one who proposed the divorce back then. She can’t take back her own words in public.”
“I heard that she has a close relationship with Old Madam Wickam, and Old Madam Wickam is very fond of her. Maybe that’s why she attended the banquet this time.”
“Look how beautiful she is! She’s elegant and sophisticated. Why did Mr. Wickam lose interest in her toward the end…”
Although it was Elisa who initiated the divorce, any discerning man would know the cause of their divorce was the complicated relationship between Gareth and Linda.
The outsiders thought Elisa was disliked by the Wickam because she was not from a wealthy and capable family.
Nonetheless, it was undeniable that she made an impressive comeback.
Not only did she announce the divorce out of the blue and caused Wickam Group a crisis, but she even associated herself with Will thereafter. The suit that was filed against Wickam Group caused the company to fork out tens of billions as compensation. She was indeed a shrewd woman!
