Chapter 1582 - In Cahoots

They arrived at the Gu family\'s dining room. It was a typical European style large dining room. Two candelabras sat on the long mahogany table with two candlesticks. A grand chandelier was adorning the ceiling directly on top of the mahogany table.

When Guan Meiyi arrived at the dining hall, she happened to see Fang Hua carefully placing the cutlery. The maid beside was holding a tray with clean and shiny knives and forks on them. Fang Hua took out the cutlery from the tray and carefully placed them in front of each seat. When Guan Meiyi arrived, more than half of the cutlery were already in place.

The Gu family had very high requirements for dining etiquette. During the meal, each dish was accompanied by different type of cutlery, and a lot of cutlery were used. Moreover, the cutlery had to be arranged according to the standard cutlery. It was detailed to the extent of how many centimeters of space was between each cutlery.

Seeing Guan Meiyi, Fang Hua smiled and said, "You\'re here. You can arrange the rest. I still have some things to deal with. You know that I\'m the matriarch of the Gu family. There are many things waiting for me to deal with."

Guan Meiyi also smiled at Fang Hua. "Okay, I got it. I\'ll do the rest."

"Uh huh." Fang Hua nodded and said, "You know that the Gu family is different from other families. We pay a lot of attention to etiquette when we eat, so we have strict requirements for the placement of the cutlery. Actually, I should have taught you this, but I have something to do and I don\'t have time. Just put it in the same way I did. If you don\'t know how to do it, just ask the servants. They all know."

With that said, Fang Hua left the dining table haughtily. Before she left the dining room, she gave Butler Xu a look, then walked out of the dining room.

Butler Xu looked at Fang Hua, then said to Guan Meiyi, "You can set things up here. I have something to do too, so I\'ll leave first."

Now that Gu Zhiqian wasn\'t here, Butler Xu\'s attitude towards Guan Meiyi had returned to the same as before.

Guan Meiyi shrugged and smiled. She was really a two-faced person who bullied the weak and feared the strong.

Butler Xu walked out of the dining room and saw Fang Hua waiting there. He quickly ran over and said, "Young Madam."

"How did it go?" Fang Hua asked with a malicious look in her eyes.

"Young Madam, don\'t worry. The item has already been placed on her. She didn\'t notice it. Just wait to see her make a fool of herself later!" Butler Xu smiled slyly.

"Not bad, not bad at all." Fang Hua\'s face revealed a satisfied smile. She\'ll wait and see how Guan Meiyi make a fool of herself later.

"I\'ve already invited a few Elders in the family as guests according to your instructions. Let that woman make a fool of herself in front of the Elders!" Butler Xu had an obsequois smile on his face. He knew that Fang Hua disliked Guan Meiyi very much, so in order to please Fang Hua, Butler Xu would definitely spare no effort to go against Guan Meiyi.

At this moment, Fang Hua seemed to be imagining the scene of Guan Meiyi making a fool of herself in front of the Elders of the Gu family. "Didn\'t that woman say that I\'m not considered an Elder? I\'ll let her know what it\'s like to make a fool of herself in front of Elders!"

At this moment, Guan Meiyi was still observing the dining table in the restaurant. Judging from Fang Hua\'s previous arrangement of the cutlery, tonight\'s meal must be a full set of French dishes. From the appetizers to the desserts, everything would be prepared. Even the cups were paired in sets of two, a white wine glass and a red wine glass.

From the arrangement of the cutlery on the table, it was obvious that it wasn\'t just the Gu family members coming today. "Is there anyone else coming to eat today?"

The maid who was carrying the cutlery beside her was shocked. She didn\'t expect Guan Meiyi to know that there would be more people coming later just from the arrangement of the cutlery on the table. "There are also a few Elders of the Gu family."
