Chapter 517 Her Choice
Christina scrutinized Madison’s chest and answered composedly, “They are bigger by a bit.”
During her time overseas, she often interacted with runway models.
In a high-stress, time-sensitive environment, those models would wear pasties or nothing before changing.
Hence, she wasn’t shocked or weirded out by Madison’s sudden act.
“All right, help me wear a gown.” When Madison didn’t elicit the reaction she was hoping to see from Christina, she felt displeased.
Upon hearing that, the housekeepers scrambled to help Madison put on a gown.
Christina couldn’t bear to watch the housekeepers treat the gowns roughly, so she offered, “Let me do it.”
While the gowns were prepared for Madison, Christina had made each with her own hands. Therefore, she didn’t want to see anyone ruining them.
When the housekeepers heard her words, they subconsciously turned to Madison. Seeing that Madison didn’t oppose the idea, they retreated to the side.
Christina removed all three gowns from their dust bags.
When Madison saw the clothing, she was overjoyed.
“I want to try this one first!” she uttered with a cheery tone while pointing at a red gown.
Of the three gowns, the red one was indeed the most eye-catching.
Christina did as Madison requested and handed the gown to the latter.
Standing before the mirror, Madison was shocked to see how gorgeous she appeared in that gown. Am I really the person in the mirror?
Even Christina couldn’t help but be stunned by Madison’s new charm.
The gown perfectly illustrated Madison’s figure. Additionally, the red contrasted well with Madison’s slightly sickly pale countenance.
The gown was created from a whole cloth cut. Thus, it was extremely pleasant to the eye. Besides that, Christina had embroidered a vivid, golden phoenix with a raised head on the edge of the thigh opening.
Moreover, Christina had sown a little bit of gold thread into the neckline, making it seem understated yet fancy.
The fastener on the gown’s chest area had also been delicately crafted by Christina, and she had even embedded a tiny ruby there.
No matter what, that gown was undoubtedly the best clothing Madison could attend her engagement banquet in.
Madison was drawn to her figure in the mirror for a long while. Just as Christina thought Madison would wear that, the latter said, “This looks okay. I want to try out that one.”
Christina didn’t expect Madison to say that and frowned. Swiftly, the former turned to the light-purple fishtail dress the latter pointed at.
Without hesitation, Christina brought the gown Madison asked for to the latter.
The gown fabric was smooth thin silk. Therefore, the wearer had to be slim to put it on.
Madison had a habit of working out, so it wasn’t difficult for her to wear it.
The gown had two notable characteristics. The first was the fishtail design at the bottom of the clothing. while the other was its pearly, opened back.
Upon wearing the gown, Madison resembled a beautiful mermaid.
However, it lacked the elegance of the first gown.
Hence, Christina assumed Madison preferred the first gown.
To Christina’s surprise, Madison uttered, “I’ll pick this one, then.”
As Madison had made her decision, Christina swallowed the suggestion dancing on her tongue. Well, this is Madison’s engagement banquet, not mine. She can choose to wear whatever she wants.
Afterward, the makeup team began applying makeup to Madison and styling her hair.
Meanwhile, Christina left the dressing room to call Nathaniel and ask if he had left already.
The moment Christina left the room, Madison interrupted a nearby stylist. “I want my hair and makeup to resemble that woman’s.”
That woman? The stylist was stunned for a moment before Christina’s figure flashed past his mind.
While Christina’s hairstyle and makeup were gorgeous, they weren’t suitable for an engagement banquet. Just as the stylist was about to voice his opinion, he was silenced by Madison’s glance.
Hence, he said, “Okay.”
Upon leaving the dressing room, Christina called Nathaniel a couple of times.
However, he didn’t answer, which led her to assume it was because he was driving and couldn’t answer the phone.
Consequently, she deposited her phone back in her handbag.
The dreamy blue decoration of the banquet was stunning. As it was held at a beach, salty ocean wind would occasionally sweep across the venue.
It made people feel refreshed and relaxed.
Madison’s engagement would commence at noon. Since it was still early, everyone was drinking champagne and chatting with each other.
When Christina swept her gaze across the banquet, she didn’t spot many familiar faces. Holding a glass of champagne, she approached a professional photographer to take a set of photos at the beach.
“You have an amazing potential to become a model, Ms. Steele,” the photographer commented as he showed the pictures he took to Christina.
“Thank you.” Christina grinned.
This photographer is really good at taking photos of people. He captured my every move and expression impeccably. I don’t know much about the art of photography, but even I can recognize what a fantastic job he’s done. An idea suddenly flashed past her mind. Perhaps my workshop can collaborate with this guy to produce my portfolio.
With that thought, Christina exchanged numbers with the photographer.
The photographer informed her that it would take a while for him to send her the pictures, which she mentioned was fine.
Also, she decided to repay his efforts. After they split up, she transferred a five thousand monetary gift to his account, though he didn’t accept it for a long period.
After leaving the beach, she returned to the banquet hall.
At that moment, the host was preparing for the start of the event.
“Christina.” It was then someone called out to Christina from behind. When she turned around, she saw it was Francis.
He was dressed fabulously for the event. His towering, slender figure made him stand out in the crowd. Furthermore, he was already a celebrity, and there were many fans among the affluent crowd. However, most of the fans merely gazed at him from afar instead of asking him for photographs and signatures so as not to cause a scene.
When the fans spotted Francis approaching Christina, they naturally also paid attention to her.
Immediately, they scrutinized her, making Christina uncomfortable because she disliked people staring at
“Do you have something you wish to speak to me about?” asked Christina.
Upon sensing Christina’s indifferent attitude, Francis pursed his lips. “I do.” He pointed at an obscure spot and proposed, “How about we chat over there?”
When she recalled how he proactively provided clues for her last time, she obediently followed behind
