Chapter 12

The dinner party was held at Wiltspoon Hotel, a place Serenity never had a chance to step into.

The Wiltspoon Hotel was one of the finest hotels in the city. Some said it was a seven-star hotel, but Serenity had no idea if that was true because it was not news she would follow.

Jasmine’s aunt arrived at the hotel before the girls and exchanged greetings with her friends. The aunt then told her children to enter the hotel while she stayed at the door to wait for Jasmine and Serenity to arrive.

As the car she arranged cruised over behind other cars, the aunt curled her lips to smile.

A few minutes later, Jasmine, with Serenity in tow, approached the aunt.

“Aunt Rachel.”

“Mrs. Lowe.”

Serenity and her best friend said hello to Rachel.

Rachel was not entirely okay with Jasmine bringing Serenity along as she had met the girl before. Rachel had to admit that the girl, who lost her parents at a young age, was better looking than her niece. Despite coming from a middle-class family, Serenity carried herself with natural grace and class.

The aunt was initially worried Serenity might overshadow her niece, but since Jasmine’s mom mentioned Serenity was married, Rachel was relieved.

Seeing that Serenity ditched the evening dress for common clothes, opted for light makeup, and forewent the jewelry, Rachel was glad that her glamorous niece outshone Serenity’s natural beauty. At least, Serenity was sensible and knew her place.

“Come with me. I’ll take you in. Jasmine, take out your invite. The security will check it for registration.”

Jasmine immediately pulled out her invitation.

“Mind yourselves when you get in. Try to talk less but observe more. If the time is right, I’ll introduce you around. Seren, I can trust you more than I do Jasmine. Watch Jasmine so she stays out of trouble. The Wiltspoon Hotel is one of the hotels the richest family owns. The family’s heirs might be here tonight.”
