Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 234
At last, Shaun got the highest bid for the necklace at an astronomical price of three billion dollars.
An employee cautiously handed him The Queen’s Necklace in full view of everyone.
Shaun took out the red necklace which glittered brilliantly.
Upon taking it out, he said to Catherine who was in a daze in a deep voice, “Stand up.”
Catherine stood up, looking confused. His strikingly handsome figure was reflected in her bright, clear eyes.
Shaun’s exquisite, thin lips curved into a charming smile. He bent over slightly and placed the necklace around her neck. His masculine, mellow voice sounded enchanting. “From today onward, you’ll be my queen.”
The guest beside her gasped in admiration.
Catherine’s heart was thumping. Although the price of the necklace made her heart ache so much that it bled, the occasion had created the illusion of their wedding. The man had fulfilled all her wishes.
What surprised her more was Shaun’s romantic demeanor.
The red diamond necklace sitting on her milky skin was dazzling. It made her seem like a queen of nobility.
“Thanks. I love you.” Catherine went on her tiptoes and kissed him on the lips in public.
After the kiss, her pretty and fair face started blushing charmingly because she noticed that many people were looking at her. Shaun’s eyes flashed with gloominess in spite of himself.
Indeed, his woman was getting more and more attractive. He felt the urge to take a bite of her.
Ethan looked away with a sullen expression. It felt as if his heart was being painfully torn apart.
When Catherine previously told him that she had fallen for Shaun, he did not quite believe it. However, he believed it now.
Indeed, the woman who used to treat him as her only lover had now fallen in love with someone else. That person was even more outstanding and well off than him.
Filled with regret, Ethan did not want to continue staying in the venue even for a moment. He turned around and was about to leave.
Who knew the screen that remained dark before this lit up all of a sudden.
Everyone thought that it was the outtake that the organizer had prepared. Nevertheless, they were all taken aback by the scene. Some voices were soon heard from the loudspeaker.
“Aren’t you afraid that Stephen will find out about this? Heh.”
“He already knows, and he won’t mind. He’s the one who asked me to sleep with you.”
“Haha. You’re right. He should be honored that I’m interested in his woman.”
The shocking conversation sounded in the venue. The man’s face was pixelated, whereas the woman’s face was clearly visible to the public. Surprisingly, it was Rebecca, the young lady from the affluent Jones family who had been stealing the spotlight these days.
Stephen had even brought her along to show off when attending some events and social activities recently. As such, everyone already knew that Rebecca was Stephen’s girlfriend.
What shocked everyone more was that Stephen was under no illusions about this matter. He actually arranged for his girlfriend to sleep with another man.
Tonight’s auction was attended by a lot of rich ladies. They gazed at Stephen with disdain and disgust.
The situation sent Stephen into a blind panic. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine that someone would dare to play the video of Willie and Rebecca sleeping together. Who did it?!
“Turn off the screen! Turn it off now!” He thundered in exasperation.
However, nobody listened to him. Everyone was just gossiping about it as they watched the drama unfold.
