Sue was planning to throw a party for celebrating the beautiful flowers in the Chu Clan mansion. She had also invited Harper to the party, hoping with all her heart that Harper would wear the poisonous clothes. Everyone was supposed to dress up. Sue had also invited many guests to avoid Harper's suspicion.

Harper's lips twitched into a smile when Sue invited her. "Nina, bring the clothes that Lady Sue had sent me a few days ago." She nudged Nina.

"My Lady, that dress..." Nina swallowed the rest of the words that were lingering on the tip of her tongue. Seeing Harper's determination, Nina had no other choice but to take out the clothes for her. 'Lady Harper is aware that the clothes are coated with poison, but why is she determined to wear them?' she thought.

Harper smiled at Nina's confused face. She pinched her cheek and said, "Don't worry about me. Lady Sue has prepared the clothes specifically for me. If I don't wear them, all her efforts will be in vain. I am going to surprise her." Harper waggled her eyebrows, and there was a mischievous glint in her eyes.

Although Nina didn't understand what Harper's plans were, she knew that Harper must have come up with a plan to deal with the situation. "As far as I know, Lady Sue is not a kind woman. I can't believe that she has invited all the ladies of our mansion to dress up. Wouldn't she be afraid that other ladies would also be under the limelight and outshine Lady Felicia?"

Harper cast a knowing smile and remained quiet. She was aware that Sue's primary motive was to make her wear the clothes. Harper decided to fulfill Sue's wish as she was desperate to see her wear them. But would Sue witness what she had always wished for?

Perhaps, Sue was afraid that Harper would outshine her daughter, Felicia. Therefore, she had only invited the ladies of the renowned officials, instead of the ones from the imperial family. She had taken extreme care in dressing up Felicia. She wanted her daughter to look the best. Felicia was going to come of age, and she would soon be married and move into Prince Kevin's mansion. She would get married to Hansen, the heir of Prince Kevin. Sue would use this opportunity to show off her daughter's accomplishment.

When Harper arrived at the party, everyone was swarmed around Felicia and was gushing about how beautiful she was.

"Oh, Lady Sue, you are incredibly lucky to have such a beautiful daughter. Look at Lady Felicia, she looks divine. It is no wonder that the heir of Prince Kevin insists on marrying her. If I were him, I would have also agreed to marry her in a heartbeat," one of the women said.

"I'm flattered." Felicia blushed as her heart swelled with happiness.

"She's right, Lady Sue. Both your daughters are fine girls who look gorgeous. You are blessed to have daughters like them. We have always admired you," another woman c

himed in.

"Don't flatter her. Otherwise it would go to her head." Sue scanned the crowd and finally caught a glimpse of Harper. Harper was wearing the clothes that she had sent her. Her stomach did a little flip as she was thrilled to see that her plan was finally working. "Hello, Lady Harper. Why are you late? We all arrived here a long time ago," she said, smiling sweetly.

The women were not happy about what Sue had said. They were women born into families of the highest class. It had been an insult for them to wait for Harper—the one who was disliked by everyone in the Chu Clan mansion.

"Lady Harper, you have disrespected us. Isn't it rude of you to make us wait for a long time?" a woman said.

"Good day, ladies." Harper greeted everyone with a sweet smile. She turned around to glance at Sue. Sue was always known for provoking people and turning them against her. She had done the same thing today as well. "Please, allow me to explain, ladies. I'm not late. I've been here for a long time, watching you all have a good time. I didn't want to disturb you."

"It's good to have you here, Lady Harper. Take a seat," Sue smiled. Harper grinned at Sue and walked towards Felicia and held her hands. "Felicia, you look beautiful in these clothes. I'm sure your mother must have put all her efforts in making them for you. You are always so beautiful, but these clothes make you look even prettier."

Although Felicia was confused to hear Harper's kind words of appreciation, she looked pleased. "Thank you, Harper. You are also incredibly beautiful, and I feel inferior next to you."

Harper stretched out her hand and caressed Felicia's hair. "You look stunning, Felicia. Come and sit down. People are waiting for us."

Felicia then pulled herself away from Harper and walked to her seat. Harper sat down quietly as she watched the other women chat. She occasionally answered when she was being questioned. But she was quiet during the rest of the conversation, and smiled from time to time.

Sue kept glancing at Harper, waiting for her to turn into a laughing stock. The poison would do its work anytime soon. If Harper made a fool of herself today, the rumor of her disfigurement would spread like fire, all over the imperial capital. And Harper would not be welcomed in the Imperial Capital, even if Mavis wanted to send her there.

Time had passed, but nothing had happened. Sue rubbed her hands as she grew anxious. She turned to look at Ruby, who gave an affirmative nod. No one would find out that Harper's clothes were poisoned, and the poison was strong enough to devastate her.

Sue let out a huge breath, waiting for the poison to do its work. "Oh my God, look at her," a woman yelped in surprise.

"What's the matter?" asked another one.

"Look at Lady Felicia! Her face..." The woman who had screamed pointed at Felicia.
