As An Immortal, I Only Learn Forbidden Skills - Chapter 756
756 Throwing the Embroidered Ball
“The event is about to begin.”
The old man on the stage sounded the drum with a joyous smile on his face.
Liang Sisi and Jiang Ming raised their heads. The woman on top was wearing a red dress. She was holding a red embroidered ball with a bashful expression as she looked at the people below the stage.
The girl beside her was dressed in a maid’s uniform.
“Miss, what do you think of the people below? Why don’t I call for more people to come over? You can choose more people then,” the maid suggested.
The woman coughed and smacked the servant girl who was talking. “Cherry, what are you talking about? There are more than enough people here.”
The woman’s face was red, and she wished she could cover her face.
Although she had already prepared herself to throw the embroidered ball, she still could not help but feel shy and did not dare to look at it.
She wondered who would catch it. That person would be her ideal husband if they were a man.
Just as she was thinking, the woman lowered her head and looked down at the audience.
Jiang Ming’s figure immediately attracted her attention.
The woman’s eyes suddenly sparkled, and she looked at Jiang Ming with curiosity.
She felt a little impulsive.
She planned to throw the embroidered ball at this man.
Jiang Ming looked at the woman at the top and asked Liang Sisi curiously, “Liang Sisi, do you know who the person who’s going to throw the ball is? Is this person really Liu’er Yuanyuan’s daughter, Liu’er Qianqian?”
“Of course. My information is reliable.”
Liang Sisi patted her chest proudly.
Jiang Ming nodded and looked at Liang Sisi. “If that’s the case, let’s go see Liu’er Qianqian after she finishes throwing the embroidered ball.”
Liang Sisi nodded. “No problem.”
Jiang Ming, on the other hand, looked amused. “Then let’s just watch this scene from the side. This is the first time I’ve seen someone throw an embroidered ball.”
Seeing Jiang Ming, Liang Sisi also relaxed and watched Liu’er Qianqian throw the embroidered ball.
At this moment, the old man who was hosting saw that Liu’er Qianqian had not thrown the embroidered ball yet and shouted again, “Ms. Liu’er Qianqian, you need to throw the embroidered ball!”
Liu’er Qianqian also realized that she could not hesitate anymore. She looked at Jiang Ming and directly threw the embroidered ball over.
Jiang Ming was still watching the show when he suddenly realized that the ball had hit him.
All of a sudden, everyone’s attention was on Jiang Ming.
Since Jiang Ming’s appearance was something most women found attractive, a lot of other women were bitter and jealous.
The men around them wanted to snatch the embroidered ball. They stared at Jiang Ming as if he had done something particularly awful.
Jiang Ming was dumbfounded.
He was just watching the show. How did he get involved?
At the thought of this, he threw the embroidered ball away. The embroidered ball rolled around and landed in the hands of a beggar.
The beggar was delighted, and he was drooling as he laughed foolishly.
Seeing Jiang Ming’s actions, Liu’er Qianqian was infuriated. She kept staring at Jiang Ming.
Feeling Liu’er Qianqian’s gaze, Jiang Ming looked up and immediately met Liu’er Qianqian’s eyes.
Liu’er Qianqian was stunned when she saw Jiang Ming’s face.
He was so handsome!
If they got married, wouldn’t it be wonderful?
She was also a beautiful woman!
Jiang Ming did not know what Liu’er Qianqian was thinking and quickly looked over.
Liu’er Qianqian was suddenly disappointed, but she could not help but look at Jiang Ming.
She felt that Jiang Ming was her one true love.
No one else could snatch him away! This man could only be hers.
Thinking of this, Liu’er Qianqian said to the maid beside her, “Follow the first person who got the embroidered ball. Remember to bring him over for my mother to see.”
The beggar who was waiting to be taken away was still laughing foolishly.
Seeing a beggar holding the embroidered ball, everyone felt lonely and dejected.
They had lost to a beggar! How ridiculous.
However, the matter was already set in stone.
They could not snatch the ball back as it would be taboo.
Cherry knew that her mistress was in love with Jiang Ming, so she quickly called for someone to invite Jiang Ming over.
“Sir, please come with me. Congratulations on becoming the winner of the embroidered ball toss.”
The old man who hosted the event was a wise man. Seeing Cherry’s actions, he immediately clapped the drum and shouted at Cherry and the others, “The winner of the embroidered ball toss is this gentleman!”
This time not only was Jiang Ming dumbfounded, but Liang Sisi was also dumbfounded.
Liang Sisi never thought that Jiang Ming would be chosen again.
Her heart was filled with anxiety and confusion.
Didn’t Ning Caichen throw the embroidered ball out just now? How could he still be chosen?
Shouldn’t the winner of the embroidered ball toss be that beggar?
The more Liang Sisi thought about it, the more confused she became.
The beggar, who was originally laughing foolishly, stopped. His mouth was wide open as he stood rooted to the ground.
He was just as confused as Liang Sisi, but he knew his position.
He was just a beggar. He had no talent or wealth. He was not even handsome. It could be said that he had nothing.
That was why he was not chosen. It was normal for Jiang Ming to be chosen.
Jiang Ming quickly said, “I’m not the winner of this embroidered ball toss. The winner should be that gentleman. He’s the one holding the embroidered ball now.”
As he spoke, he pointed at the beggar holding the embroidered ball.
The beggar was so touched that the embroidered ball in his hand fell to the ground.
The embroidered ball did not stop moving when it fell to the ground. Instead, it kept moving forward until it reached Jiang Ming’s feet.
Liang Sisi was speechless, and so were the other people watching.
The embroidered ball itself had chosen Ning Caichen.
Jiang Ming did not expect the embroidered ball to come to his side. He was a little resentful. “This is an accident. Let that gentleman go with you.”
However, Cherry was very persistent. “Sir, we only recognize the person who was chosen by the embroidered ball for the first time. Now that the embroidered ball has chosen you, it means that you are the winner.”
Her words were reasonable and well-founded. Jiang Ming could not find anything to refute at that moment.
