the attire of this person bore no similarity to that of the young ladies. In all her splendour and lustre， she looked like a fairy or a goddess. In her coiffure， she had a band of gold filiGREe work， representing the eight precious things， inlaid with pearls； and wore pins， at the head of each of which were five phoenixes in a rampant position， with pendants of pearls. On her neck， she had a reddish gold necklet， like coiled dragons， with a fringe of tassels. On her person， she wore a tight-sleeved jacket， of dark red flowered satin， covered with hundreds of butterflies， embroidered in gold， interspersed with flowers. Over all， she had a variegated stiff-silk pelisse， lined with slate-blue ermine； while her nether garments consisted of a jupe of kingfisher-colour foreign crepe， brocaded with flowers.
She had a pair of eyes， triangular in shape like those of the red phoenix， two eyebrows， curved upwards at each temple， like willow leaves. Her stature was elegant； her figure graceful； her powdered face like dawning spring， majestic， yet not haughty. Her carnation lips， long before they parted， betrayed a smile.
Tai-yue eagerly rose and GREeted her.
Old lady Chia then smiled. "You don't know her，" she observed. "This is a cunning vixen， who has made quite a name in this establishment！ In Nanking， she went by the appellation of vixen， and if you simply call her Feng Vixen， it will do."
Tai-yue was just at a loss how to address her， when all her cousins informed Tai-yue， that this was her sister-in-law Lien. vibraters for sale
Tai-yue had not， it is true， made her acquaintance before， but she had heard her mother mention that her eldest maternal uncle Chia She's son， Chia Lien， had married the niece of Madame Wang， her second brother's wife， a girl who had， from her infancy， purposely been nurtured to supply the place of a son， and to whom the school name of Wang Hsi-feng had been given. viberaters
Tai-yue lost no time in returning her smile and saluting her with all propriety， addressing her as my sister-in-law. This Hsi-feng laid hold of Tai-yue's hand， and minutely scrutinised her， for a while， from head to foot； after which she led her back next to dowager lady Chia， where they both took a seat.
"If really there be a being of such beauty in the world，" she consequently observed with a smile， "I may well consider as having set eyes upon it to-day！ Besides， in the air of her whole person， she doesn't in fact look like your granddaughter-in-law， our worthy ancestor， but in every way like your ladyship's own kindred- granddaughter！ It's no wonder then that your venerable ladyship should have， day after day， had her unforgotten， even for a second， in your lips and heart. It's a pity， however， that this cousin of mine should have such a hard lot！ How did it happen that our aunt died at such an early period？"
As she uttered these words， she hastily took her handkerchief and wiped the tears from her eyes.
