The woman's arrival made Henry and Lily ignore Johan as if he was not there. Henry greeted her arrival with a faint smile while Lily looked so enthusiastic that she put her arm around the girl’s shoulders."My sweet lady, I've been looking for you." Lily put her arms around the woman, looking from head to toe. "You look different from the last time we met."The woman smiled sweetly. The twinkle in her eyes suggested that she was very happy to see Lily. "Miss, how are you? Did you have a good vacation?""Very, very nice! My husband can make me smile every time. It's just that..." Lily's face suddenly changed. It went from being very happy to looking annoyed."It's just what, Miss?" the woman asked curiously."It's just that there are some annoying flies and mites that annoy me. You know, it's really annoying."The woman clasped Lily's hands together as she said, "Miss, there's no need to ignore their annoying presence. Look... there is a husband who is always willing to give you happin
It was early in the morning when Henry and Lily were packing. They ended the trip earlier than they should have to prepare for the emerald group's mega project meeting."Honey, I'm sorry if my work made our vacation end early."Henry shook his head softly. A faint smile was etched on his face, with his arms wrapped tightly around Lily's waist, Henry said that he didn't mind it."We can continue our vacation another time, dear. After this project is over, we can go somewhere more interesting than Paradise Island."Lily smiled fondly; in recent times, her husband had always given her wonderful surprises.Seeing his wife being so cute, Henry couldn't help but pull Lily into his arms.Some moment later, the two of them exited from the hotel. The bodyguard that Oliver Wood had assigned was waiting in the lobby. Upon seeing Henry and Lily's arrival, the bodyguard bowed and opened the car door."Please come in, Sir and Madam."Henry smiled and nodded and explained to Lily that the person who
Sean Kingston who heard that Henry wanted to buy a house then offered to help, because Sean Kingston happened to have an acquaintance who was the owner of a property company. According to him, it would be easier for Henry to get the ideal house for him and Lily there. Moreover, the house they were selling was of high quality and luxury."Oh, really?" Henry raised one eyebrow. "In that case, I will visit the company you recommended, Mr. Kingston." he continued agreeing to the offer from the mayor of Eastland City.Later, Sean Kingston also offered to accompany Henry directly to the property company in question, but Henry immediately refused subtly."No need to do that, Mr. Kingston. I will go there alone. But, thank you very much for your offer." Henry argued that he did not want to trouble Sean Kingston further, especially not for his personal matters."No need to be shy, Mr. Henry. I'm glad I could help you for real." Sean Kingston wanted to help Henry anyway, he even wanted to call
After the auction event, Henry met the committee to pay the bill for the auction he won. Henry came alone because Lily had previously chosen to return to the room because she felt nauseous. Actually, Henry was reluctant to leave Lily, but since she said she would be fine, he hurried to get the dress they had gotten."Wait for me, baby!" Henry muttered under his breath as he walked quickly.Arriving at the place, he immediately paid all the bills using his black card. After that, Henry headed back to his room half-running because he was still worried about Lily's condition.It turned out that when Henry arrived at the room, Lily was fine. She only felt nauseous because of the baby in her womb."Thank goodness then, I can rest easy now." Henry smiled slightly, before handing her the dress he had taken.Meanwhile, Lily was so happy when she received the dress, she even held it very carefully because she knew the price was a fantastic amount. This was the first time Lily had gotten such a
"Thank you, Mr. Daniel. You made the right choice this time. Finally, after all this time spinning around, you finally realize where you are. Your destiny this time is indeed to be the defeated one." Henry smiled sarcastically, as if mocking Daniel, as he officially withdrew from the bidding. Thus, Henry was confirmed to be the winner of this auction.Actually, Daniel felt very insulted by what Henry had just said. Unfortunately, that time he really couldn't do much. He was unable to surpass Henry that night, but that didn't mean he felt he had lost completely. Daniel himself didn't say anything and immediately asked Rosaline to leave the room, even though the event wasn't actually over yet. He didn't want to wait any longer, as it would hurt his pride even more. Henry had really humiliated him in front of so many people.'Henry, I won't forget this humiliation, you've dug your own grave! I promise to make you regret this humiliation you have done to me!' Daniel promised to remember H
The room fell silent after Henry made an offer of $5,000,000. If someone had taken a sip of saliva at that moment, everyone would have been able to hear it clearly. They were silent for a long time. Many in the audience opened and closed their mouths, but no words came out.The amount of $5,000,000 was indeed not a small price, but it was also not a problem for the guests here, as all of them came from wealthy families, but they would also think dozens of times about spending such a fantastic amount of money just to buy an item. Moreover, their property is family property, not a kind of personal property.Meanwhile, Henry, a man who was considered came from a poor family, had the courage to name such a large bidding price, as if the amount was not a big deal to him."This man is really rich, or just wants to continue his drama so that Mr. Daniel doesn't win the auction?""I don't know either, but judging from his serious face, I feel confident that he can afford to pay the bill. Just
All the eyes of the auction participants were drawn to the source of the sound, and found a man smiling broadly, while the woman beside him showed a worried expression.Some people started discussing amongst themselves, not knowing the identity of the two people. While others knew a little about them, especially the guest who came from Eastland City.Benjamin also noticed the figure who had just shocked the whole room, but he had absolutely no information about his background. Sean Kingston who saw the confusion on Benjamin's face immediately whispered softly."Manager Ben, those two people are Mr. Henry and Miss Lily, the son-in-law and daughter of the Wilson family in Eastland City. They..." Sean Kingston shared what little he knew about Henry and Lily.Benjamin who heard that held his breath when Sean Kingston said that Henry and Lily came from a poor little family because the Wilson family seemed to have neglected and alienated them. So, why did this man confidently bid for the au
The invited guests immediately mentioned their prices, as the Master of Ceremony officially started opening the bidding."$110.000!""$120.000!""$150.000!"Within a short span of time, the bidding price had reached $200,000. Johan, who saw that, immediately opened his bid."$250.000!"Of course, the price wasn't finalized yet, as the next second another guest joined in the bidding."$270.000!""$280.000!"Rosaline, who heard the bids from the other guests start to increase drastically, immediately forced Daniel to speak up. She was worried that the dress she loved would fall into someone else's hands."Alright, Honey. It's time for me to step in!" Daniel grasped Rosaline's hand tightly to try and convince her that the dress would still go to them."$300.000!"Just as Daniel mentioned the number, another guest made a higher offer."$310.000!"Johan, on the other hand, didn't want to be left out. He voiced his bid again, which ended up at $400,000.However, the price was still too low.
