Submitting To My Ex-Wife by Daisy Woods Chapter 39

Chapter 39

The first dozen lots totaled less than one million dollars, but the item donated by Pearl was 1.4 million dollars!

What kind of rich lady she was!

Some uninitiated leaned forward to get a better look, but they could only vaguely make out a beautiful figure in the dim light because they were seated far away.

“Even her back exudes opulence,” they thought.

“What? Brunew? Is a pendant made with emerald gemstones worth so much money?”

Chatter quickly spread through the crowd.

Those familiar with such events couldn’t take their eyes off the turquoise and sparkling gemstone necklace on the stage, silently calculating their finances, yearning to bid, but sadly lacking the financial means!

Marc’s eyes brightened, and his gaze shifted to Pearl, who sat in the dim light. He

immediately recognized the necklace on the stage as the one she had been wearing when she arrived.

Lucas spoke his mind. “Hey, isn’t that the necklace Pearl was wearing when she got here? And she just took it off and donated it like that? She’s so generous.”

The auctions held by fashion magazine companies like this were usually small, with not too many valuable items. Neither Lucas nor Marc typically attended such events, but today was an exception, mainly because of Pearl.

Lucas stumbled upon the trending topic about the invitation list for the evening party held by Zero Hour while surfing the Internet, and fans were ecstatic to see their beloved celebrity on the list. They couldn’t contain their excitement, thinking it was indeed an honor for their idols to be invited.

Lucas was still laughing at those crazy fans, but when he noticed Pearl’s name on the list, he also became excited. He immediately fetched the invitations and asked Marc, “Are you going with me or not?”

Chapter 39

Marc gave him a sidelong glance and asked, “Is Pearl going to be there?”

“Not really,” Lucas admitted honestly, adding, “But what if she is?”

Marc responded. “Then let’s go have a look.”

Unable to secure an appointment and without the ability to check her schedule, what choice did he have but to take that one–in–a-million chance?

Marc had never experienced such a humbling moment in his life.

Was this the price he had to pay for neglecting that woman for the past three years?

He couldn’t help but sigh a breath.

Hubert gazed at the empty space around Pearl’s neck and remarked, “I recall you adored this necklace. Are you willing to part with it? You don’t have to do that if you only want to impress my aunt.”

Elaine chimed in, “Indeed, Pearl. You’ve already honored me by being here. There’s no need to donate something so valuable.”

Pearl smiled faintly.

“It’s just a necklace. You guys shouldn’t feel burdened. Besides, it’s all for charity. It doesn’t matter at all. If no one bids on it, I’ll retrieve it myself.”

Pearl possessed numerous gemstone necklaces, so donating one wasn’t a big deal, and neither was reclaiming it if no one bid on it.

The auctioneer saw the valuable gemstone necklace and enthusiastically extolled its virtues. “1.4 million dollars is an absolute bargain. It would be a shame to let it slip away. Great, 1.42 million dollars!”

Manfred raised his bid card high in the air, worried that Pearl might miss it, and event

showed her a toothy grin.

Pearl paid no attention to it. She would rather spend two million dollars to reclaim the necklace than let it end up in the hands of Marc.

Chapter 39

Nearby, Tina seethed with jealousy. Manfred hadn’t even bothered to donate an auction item, and she had to steal a gemstone screen from her father’s collection cabinet for him, but now he wanted to spend 1.42 million dollars on Pearl’s necklace!

Was he out of his mind?

“Manfred, this is too extravagant. Where can you get so much money?”

In a moment of emotional outburst, Tina didn’t lower her voice, and there happened to be a microphone nearby, so her words were broadcasted through the loudspeaker, eliciting laughter from the crowd.

“Mr. Day, don’t be impulsive if you can’t afford it.”

Someone sarcastically said to Manfred. Manfred’s face immediately soured as he glared fiercely at Tina. “I’m the president of the Day Group. Do you think I can’t come up with this amount of money?”

Just because he wasn’t willing to spend money on Tina didn’t mean he wasn’t willing to spend money on another woman.

“I like this necklace, and I must get it today. Anyone among you who also wants this necklace, well, you all can participate in the auction and compete with the Day family, showcasing your financial strength.”

These words were addressed to those people who were waiting to watch his joke.

Manfred raised the corner of his mouth disdainfully, adjusted the buttons of his suit, and was just about to take his seat when he heard the auctioneer exclaim, “1.6 million dollars!”

The audience burst into an uproar again. Had someone raised the wrong bid card?

Manfred almost stumbled, quickly turned to look, and spotted a man in a black trench coat with a confident look on his face who had raised the bid card. He even shot Manfred a smug, provocative smile.

“Who is this man?” He inquired of his friend, who stood beside him.

Manfred’s friend gulped, saying, “It appears to be Lucas Parker from the Parker family in Beaudale.”

The auctioneer then inquired it there wor

also raised his bid card, accompanied by a calm, low voice, saying, IwU ..

The entire room fell silent.

Manfred nearly fell forward again, glaring intensely at the man sitting in the shadows, unable to discern his face. He felt that these two individuals were deliberately trying to embarrass him!

Frustrated, he asked, “And who is this man?”

His friend struggled to identify the man and replied in a low voice, “It seems to be Marc Males, the president of the Males Group in Machodean.”

“Bang.” Manfred’s knees went weak, and he collapsed on the ground entirely.

Lucas started to taunt. “Mr. Day, don’t be a coward. Did you say that you must get this necklace today? Let’s see how deep your pockets are.”

He then turned to Marc and added, “I’m not particularly interested in emeralds actually, but this necklace carries Pearl’s scent after being worn by her for such a long time, making quite appealing. I’ve set my sights on it.”

A dark intensity flickered in Marc’s eyes, and he spoke in a low voice, “Coincidentally, so have 1.”

“Two million dollars once! Two million dollars twice…”

“2.2 million dollars!”

Manfred struggled and rose to his feet, his gaze sweeping over Lucas and Marc with a cold glare. His friends attempted to dissuade him, reminding him that both the Parker family and the Males family were not someone he could afford to mess up with.

“No matter how powerful the Parker family and the Males family are, they’re now in Nanston, the place of the Day family, and on my turf. How can I let outsiders insult me like that?”

Manfred seemed to be very confident.

However, his confidence only lasted a second and soon disappeared when Lucas and Marc joined forces to bid.

Marc and Lucas didn’t care about Manfred and raised their bid cards.

“3 million dollars!”

“3.6 million dollars!”

“3.8 million dollars!”

“4 million dollars!”

The prices continued to climb, and the auctioneer was so excited that his voice grew higher in pitch. Everyone in the room turned their attention toward Marc and Lucas, wondering where these two bidders had come from.

Hubert was stunned, looking at the two people raising their bid cards like cheerleaders and smacking his lips. “What kind of game are they playing now?”

Pearl’s expression remained serious, without a trace of joy.

Influenced by her parents, she never liked being in the spotlight like this, nor did she appreciate this kind of childish behavior. Looking at those three people, who had raised their bid cards on the necklace, vying for the necklace she had worn, Pearl couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable, no matter who could get the necklace in the end.

She nodded toward Mason, who was holding up his bid card. “4 million and 2 thousand

dollars.”

Marc and Lucas both turned their gaze toward Pearl simultaneously.

Pearl didn’t even look at them and nodded directly at the auctioneer, who quickly shouted the price three times and then dropped the hammer with a thud.

Thanks to them, she got this 1.4–million–dollar gemstone necklace back at around 2.6 million dollars more than its value.

But it didn’t matter. She would earn that money back from them.
