Chapter 4: Paying Respects
It was a troubling matter when a bride met the elders. Before entering the city, I had already dressed up in the inn.
YiZhuMu, Empress Dowager Liu, had treated me very well and personally conferred my dowry before her death. All the jewelries were items from the Palace. I did not use any gold or pearl hair ornaments as they were too eye-catching. One could not show off nor be too unadorned. Instead, one had to show one’s family influence in a low profile manner.
