The next day.
With Jamie Little leading the way, Finn Taylor and Yvette Larson were brought to the chapel on Cupid Island. This was where most couples took their wedding photos, and it was the most beautiful site on the entire island.
The sun shone on Yvette Larson’s lilac gown as she walked into the chapel.
The sunlight made the chapel even more gorgeous, and Yvette Larson was similarly stunning.
The couple caught the attention of many other couples along the way there. Those eyes were filled with jealousy and envy, amongst other emotions.
Of course, most women stared on with green-eyed envy.
On the one hand, they were jealous of Yvette Larson. They were all women after all, but Yvette Larson was exceptionally beautiful.
On the other hand, they were jealous because of their own boyfriends or husbands as well. The men were staring unblinkingly at another woman, with no care for their feelings at all.
There were different venues at this chapel, and each charged a different fee. Of course, the ones that charged a higher price had better views.
Naturally, the place where Finn Taylor and Yvette Larson were at had the best views and charged the highest prices.
As the couple walked into the venue, they spotted another couple taking their photos as well.
Their gazes immediately fell on Yvette Larson the moment she walked in.
On the one hand, it was because Yvette Larson was truly stunning. On the other hand, it was because of the gown she was wearing.
Others might not have recognized it, but they did.
The man was named Michael Young while the lady’s name was Vicky Day. Before taking their wedding photos, they had been to the same boutique. Naturally, they had also enquired about the price of that lilac dress on Yvette Larson too.
But the price of five million had been way beyond their budget. Besides, a wedding gown was only worn once in a lifetime.
Nobody ever bought a wedding gown expecting to wear it again. As such, they had gone for another gown instead.
The gown they had chosen wasn’t exactly cheap either—it had cost them 15,000 dollars. Yet, it couldn’t compare with ‘Lilac Papillon.’
“You recognize this?” Yvette Larson was stunned. She had never expected others to recognize the gown she had on.
Jamie Little quickly stepped in to explain, “The boutique we visited yesterday is the best on Cupid Island. ‘Lilac Papillon’ is the treasure of the boutique, so many people know about it. It’s not strange that others would recognize it.”
Yvette Larson hadn’t expected that boutique to be so famous.
Finn Taylor stood by the side as the pair chatted, not interfering.
It was exactly because of this calm demeanor that Michael Young flared up.
Why? He felt as though this man in front of him was just trying to put on an act and show off with this gown.
And it had indeed taken its intended effect—Vicky Day was gazing at Finn Taylor with glassy eyes.
“Tch, it’s just a fake gown. What’s the big deal?”
“Fake gown?” Vicky Day was stunned. ‘What does my fiancé mean?’
“Can’t you see? That gown has to be fake. Do you think any fool would pay five million dollars for a gown you’d only wear once in your life?”
Vicky Day had her suspicions too.
But Finn Taylor merely responded indifferently. “It was only five million dollars. So what if it cost five billion dollars? I would buy it for her no matter how much it costs as long as she likes it. Don’t you think spending five million dollars is worth it as long as it makes my wife happy?”
Finn Taylor sounded smug as he said so.
An average person would never be able to say such things.
This only deepened Michael Young’s hatred toward him. ‘The latter is clearly looking down on me.’
“Hehe. There could be someone who would spend five million on that dress, but I’m sure that someone isn’t you.”
Finn Taylor waved his hand. He had no intention of getting into a fight with Michael Young. ‘We don’t even know each other, and I’m only here to take wedding photos. What does it have to do with me if you don’t believe me?’
Seeing that Finn Taylor was now ignoring him, Michael Young fumed. “Why aren’t you talking anymore? Are you feeling guilty? Fine, I’ll go to the boutique now and see if that lilac gown is still there. You’re going to be slapped in the face!”
With that, Michael Young dragged Vicky Day away to the boutique.
Vicky Day was his fiancée, and the couple was here to take their photos. Yet, she was staring dreamily at another man!
It was only natural for a man—a rich man, at that—for Michael Young to be fuming. As such, he was intent on exposing the other.
But Finn Taylor couldn’t care less about that and started his shoot with his wife.
Although Jamie Little was a woman, her photography skills were quite good. It didn’t take her ten minutes to get a decent shot.
By then, Michael Young and Vicky Day had arrived at the wedding gown boutique.
The couple rushed in toward the back of the store, where the lilac gown had been. Yet, they realized that the space was empty! There was nothing there!
‘This… What’s going on?’
Still in disbelief, Michael Young asked the boss, “Has someone bought ‘Lilac Papillon?’”
“You must’ve seen it. Isn’t it gorgeous?”
“That can’t be. It cost five million! Did you rent it out to them at a lower price?”
The boss was displeased by his words, and she took out the receipt for Michael Young. It clearly stated a transaction of five million dollars.
Michael Young felt as though he was going to vomit blood at that moment. He couldn’t help but feel awkward when he thought of the words he had spoken toward Finn Taylor earlier on.
He had declared that the lilac gown was fake, but it wasn’t! To put it bluntly, he was simply too poor to understand the life of the truly wealthy.
At that moment, Michael Young even spotted a look of envy in Vicky Day’s eyes, and that upset him even more.
“Who is that man? Why does he have so much money?” Michael Young returned the receipt while grumbling.
Unexpectedly, that boss replied to him, “That man isn’t very rich, but that woman is loaded though. That man is a matrilocal son-in-law. He must’ve used his wife’s money to puff himself up.”
Her words excited Michael Young. ‘I’m going to make up for whatever humiliation I faced earlier. Even though I’m not as rich, the money is mine at the very least.. That man, on the other hand, is nothing but a useless matrilocal son-in-law!’
