Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“150,000 dollars? You might as well rob a bank!” Michael Young never thought that he’d have to fork out so much money.
“Those are the rules. If you don’t like it, you can ask our boss to change them for you.”
The thought of looking for the boss had never crossed Michael Young’s mind. The other had to have quite a good family background to open such a prominent auction house.
After a long consideration, Michael Young felt that 150,000 dollars would be worth it as long as he could humiliate Finn Taylor and make his fiancée give up on the other. Besides, he would be able to get his money back as long as he bought something at the auction.
There was sure to be something within his budget at the auction.
“Fine. I’ll give you 150,000 dollars.” With that, Michael Young transferred the sum to the manager.
He didn’t forget to turn to Vicky Day and say, “Did you see that? I can fork out 150,000 dollars easily. Do you think that piece of trash would be able to do this?”
The manager couldn’t help but sneer inwardly. ‘Someone who could get into Zone A like Finn Taylor had been courteous and polite to me. Yet, someone who didn’t qualify for Zone D like Michael Young loves to show off. This is probably the difference between cultured and uncultured men.’
The next day, Finn Taylor and Yvette Larson proceeded with their shoot.
In today’s shoot, the couple got into slightly more intimate positions, and Finn Taylor’s touch made Yvette Larson blush at once.
Of course, Jamie Little was a little shocked when she witnessed that.
Rumor had it that the couple hadn’t been intimate in the few years they’d been married. At that time, Jamie Little hadn’t believed those rumors.
When she met them later and realized that they had a good relationship, she grew even more doubtful of those rumors. But now, she finally believed that there was some truth in those rumors.
Yet, she couldn’t understand how they’d managed to do so. Weren’t some things bound to happen once men and women got close to each other?
Although the couple hadn’t taken many photos today, they were both dead-beat because they had tried their best not to cross each other’s lines.
Only after returning to the hotel did Yvette Larson ask hesitantly, “Weren’t we too far apart from each other in the photos today?”
It was obvious that she was telling her husband that it was fine to touch her. However, the other understood her intentions differently. “Do you mean those photos weren’t good? Alright then. I’ll tell Jamie Little not to process them. Let’s take more photos in a different style.”
How Yvette Larson wished she could kill her husband with a hammer right then and there. ‘Are you still a man? I’m already making such obvious hints. but you still don’t understand me!’
Yvette Larson tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep the whole night.
The next day was the day of the auction. This meant that the couple didn’t have to go for a shoot that day.
Along the way to the auction, Yvette Larson asked her husband, “Did you really hire a whole bunch of employees for me?”
“How are they?”
Yvette Larson glanced at her husband doubtfully. ‘Why would exceptionally talented people come to the Larson Corporation? They’d definitely want to work in a Forbes 500 company!’
“Don’t worry. We’re on our honeymoon, so let’s not talk about work.” Seeing that his spouse wanted to go on, Finn Taylor quickly cut her off.
He didn’t want to discuss work with his wife on their honeymoon.
At the entrance to the auction house.
Michael Young and Vicky Day had been waiting here for half an hour. The reason they hadn’t gone in was to wait for Finn Taylor.
If they couldn’t show off to Finn Taylor that they had gotten tickets to Zone D, he would’ve wasted that 150,000 dollars!
After what seemed like an eternity, Finn Taylor and Yvette Larson finally arrived.
“Oh, what a coincidence that we’re meeting you here again.” Michael Young acted as though it was pure coincidence.
Yet, Finn Taylor smiled while replying, “That’s right. You guys must’ve waited for a long time. What a coincidence.”
But Michael Young simply acted as though his lies hadn’t been exposed. “Oh right, where are you guys sitting? We’re in Zone D. Apparently, Zone D isn’t open to just anyone.”
With that, Michael Young flashed the two Zone D tickets he had in his hands.
‘How childish.’ Finn Taylor couldn’t help but smirk. “I don’t know where we’re seated either.”
With that, he simply walked away.
However, Michael Young followed closely behind. “I heard that the seats are split into five zones. Ordinary folk can only go to Zone E. You must be seated in Zone E then, but that’s fine. You just have to work hard, and you’ll eventually be invited to Zone D.”
Finn Taylor remained silent, thinking that there was something wrong with Michael Young’s brain. ‘I could buy ‘Lilac Papillon’ so easily. Do you think I’d be seated in Zone E?’
As they walked past Zone E, Michael Young pointed at a seat. “This seat has a good view. Why don’t you guys sit here?”
Finn Taylor ignored him and walked forward with his wife.
Very quickly, the four of them arrived in Zone D.
Michael Young’s heart thumped rapidly. ‘What’s going on? Is Finn Taylor not seated in Zone E?’
Then, they walked to the boundary of Zone C and D.
Based on the rules, Michael Young could no longer walk any further. Yet, he saw Finn Taylor walking right ahead with no intention of stopping. ‘Don’t tell me that he’s seated somewhere better than Zone D!’
“Hey, that’s Zone C.” Michael Young thought that Finn Taylor must’ve walked in the wrong direction and gave the other a ‘friendly reminder’.
However, Finn Taylor paid him no heed and proceeded on.
It was then that Michael Young realized that something was wrong. He took a seat with Vicky Day, but his gaze was dead set on Finn Taylor. ‘He must be doing this on purpose so that people think that he’s qualified for the better seats. I can’t wait for him to be chased away. He can’t possibly be seated in Zone C!’
Yet, Finn Taylor merely walked past Zone C and into Zone B.
‘Could he possibly qualify for Zone B?’ Michael Young felt his heart fall. He repeatedly comforted himself that Finn Taylor was only putting on an act and that the other would definitely be chased away by the auction house employees later on. ‘A piece of trash like him is worthy of only Zone E. What right does he have to compare himself to me?’
Just then, Michael Young spotted Finn Taylor walking into Zone A.
The latter took out two tickets and handed them to the staff, whose faces lit up as they ushered him in..
