Chapter 175 Indifference And Aspirations

  • “I never expected Dr. Lane’s boyfriend to be the son of the calligrapher, Mrs. Emily Quinn. They seem to have a good relationship with the Hurst family from Kinton.” Jane seemed to be whispering in amazement, but her attention was on Byron. The Hurst and Quinn families were among the four prominent families in Kinton, but their owners seldom appeared in the public eye. They only made occasional appearances at art exhibitions or calligraphic events. Of course, the Hansen and Yoris families had little interaction with them. Byron’s presence at this Calligraphy Association event was because his grandfather wanted a piece of Mrs. Emily Quinn’s calligraphy, which led him to bring Jane along. Little did they expect that before the event even began, they would run into Cora being introduced as someone else’s mistress, bringing joy to Jane’s heart. However, Byron seemed unaffected. He observed the scene with a cold demeanor, making Jane wonder if his interest in Cora had already faded. On the other side, Chloe’s provocative gaze made it difficult for anyone to overlook her intentions. “I don’t need you to worry about what kind of daughter-in-law my mother wants.”
  • As clever as Lucas was, he immediately understood what Chloe was up to. Chloe smiled and said, “But Mrs. Emily Quinn and I are like mother and daughter, and I’ll help her as much as I can!” She smiled at Cora and continued, “I suppose Mrs. Emily Quinn took an interest in me, hoping I could be their future daughter-in-law, all thanks to my decent calligraphy skills.” In other words, Chloe hinted to Cora that one must possess excellent calligraphy skills to become part of the Quinn family. Cora glanced at Chloe indifferently, leaving people uncertain whether she had taken Chloe’s words to heart. Chloe sized up Cora and couldn’t help but admit that she was beautiful, a timeless classic, and possibly unmatched even in all of Kinton. Such a woman would find it easy to marry into a prestigious family. However, joining a prominent Kinton family was not as simple as marrying into a wealthy one. This circle emphasized both talent and character. In other words, one wouldn’t be able to squeeze in without the necessary qualities if she came from a wealthy family. Chloe, confident in her position as the vice president of the Calligraphy Association, was sure that she could outshine Cora in this aspect. It was why she had insisted on holding the Calligraphy Association event in New York. The time was almost up, and Chloe took the stage to deliver her speech. During her speeches, she kept her gaze fixed on Cora and Lucas.
  • Cora did not immediately leave, and since learning about Chloe’s relationship with Lucas, she has been quiet but burdened with heavy thoughts. Lucas remained busy talking to Cora, likely explaining that his relationship with Chloe was merely one of mutual distance. Chloe was quite dissatisfied with Luas's almost submissive demeanor. However, she proceeded with her original plan. After delivering her speech and receiving warm applause, Chloe announced, “At the beginning of previous calligraphy events, the president of the Calligraphy Association, Mrs. Emily Quinn, would showcase her excellent calligraphy. However, she couldn’t be here today due to illness, so I, as the vice president, will humbly take her place.” As she spoke, the staff had already set up a table with pens and papers, ready for her to demonstrate her calligraphy skills. When she finished speaking, Chloe picked up a pen and wrote on the paper. “Without embracing simplicity, one cannot grasp one’s aspirations. Without seeking tranquility, one cannot achieve greatness.”
