Chapter 248 Ruka Pranks Veronica Again

Veronica’s actions took Xavier by surprise. Where does she get the money from?

Matthew, on the other hand, felt that she was too rational and liked to draw lines between matters,
which made it extremely hard for him to get closer.

But… Isn’t that what I like about her, though? Not a gold-digger and definitely not someone greedy, too,
he thought to himself.

At that moment, the silence was deafening and everyone looked at Veronica as if they were petrified.
After a long period of silence, the audience turned to look at the auctioneer instead. Numerous eyes
were on the host, Alexander, who was visibly nervous while holding the auction hammer in his hand.

“President Murphy of the Encounters Bridal Store bids sixty million and one.” After confirming,
Alexander looked at the audience and discussion broke out again, but this time, no one dared to bid

Veronica’s words clearly ended the chance for Matthew and Xavier to bid again.

The people on the scene were also not ignorant enough to continue bidding either as that would
indirectly mean competing against Matthew and Xavier including… Ruka, who was envious of Tiffany!

“Going once… Going twice… Bang! Sold!”

The auctioneer made the final decision and announced, “Congratulations to President Murphy from
Encounters Bridal Store for winning the necklace of ‘Angel’s Tears’. We are very grateful to Encounters
Bridal Store for your strong support for this charity event…” The audience applauded enthusiastically
as he spoke.

Veronica’s face was full of smoke as she glared angrily at Matthew with boiling anger.

Despite the fact that winning the auction was for the greater good and also a smart move in terms of
advertising her company, spending sixty million on a necklace was a pretty painful decision to make.

She could not be any more irritated by Xavier and Matthew’s actions. Auctioning this necklace was also
a last resort.

Had either Xavier or Matthew won the auction tonight, she would have been seen as taking it for free
by the public regardless whether she accepted it in private or not. Even if she was to publicly reject it,
she would still be scrutinized, which would create more drama and rumors.

Veronica had no choice but to win the necklace in exchange for a large sum of money. This could save
her from unnecessary trouble while also advertising for the wedding company.

Not… too bad. After all, it was a contribution to the community.

The next auction went off without a hitch. After an hour, everyone went downstairs to the reception hall
for a cocktail party.

Yvonne brought along Veronica and made their way downstairs to the desert table while she continued
to gush, “You were so cool just now. Sixty million… Wouldn’t it be better to spend that money on a
sugar baby? Alas, it’s too extravagant.”

“Yvonne!” exclaimed Veronica, who was eating her dessert on a plate.

“Yeah?” The dazed Yvonne gaped while tilting her head to look at her.

The next second, Veronica immediately stuffed a piece of dessert into Yvonne’s mouth. “Shut up! Of
course, I know a sugar baby is so much better! You don’t have to keep reminding me about something
like this in front of other people! What a downer.”

Yvonne smiled as she chewed on her dessert. “Wow, this dessert tastes really good. It’s so delicious,”
she exclaimed.

“So, don’t bother me while I’m enjoying the perks here. One more word and I will tape your mouth!”
Veronica shot her a look and gave her a warning.

“Oh my God… Are you planning to eat a worth of eighty million as cashback?” Yvonne sneered with
her wide Carslan eyes.

As soon as Yvonne finished her sentence, Veronica shot her another look and the next thing she knew,
Veronica wrapped her arms around Yvonne’s neck while picking up a piece of crystal dumplings from
the table and stuffed it into her mouth. “Eat it! I beg you not to say anything else!”

My money!!!!!!

After speaking, Veronica shoved a plate of dessert into Yvonne’s hand and pointed her toward a stool
at the side while threatening her with a waving fist. “You better sit here and not move!” It was a warning
from Veronica, who was about to explode on the spot.

Yvonne rarely saw her friend in this state, so she nodded frantically and sat obediently to eat her

The melodious music began to play in the dance hall and gradually, people in the hall respectively
walked in with their partners as they swayed on the dance floor.

Veronica found a quiet spot to enjoy the ballroom dancing while she engrossed in the tunes, sweets
and champagne. However, her heart was in pain.

While she soaked in her state of depressiveness, a host walked up to the stage and announced, “Good
evening to all the respected guests, I’m your replacement host today. I have some exciting news to

share with you. I just got a word from the organizer that there will be a surprise for everyone tonight.
Later, the lighting engineer will flash the lights at random and select two groups of lucky winners to
dance on the spot. They will be gifted a set of Charmante’s latest limited-edition jewelry. The prize is
exclusively sponsored by Charmante Jewelry Atelier…”

The host was talking nonstop, which made Veronica even more bored and depressed.

Ugh… what to do… Perhaps food is the only answer! She looked at the champagne and desserts on
the table before she continued eating.

“Little Roni, why are you here by yourself?” A person stepped in front of Veronica, blocking her view.

“Go…” Without saying the word ‘away’, Veronica realized the person standing in front of her was none
other than Conrad. “Uncle Conrad, you are here too.”

“Yeah, I’ve been here for quite some time but I was sitting at the far corner, so you didn’t notice me.” He
was dressed in a black velvet suit with sequins and glitter.

He had one hand in his pocket and a glass of champagne in the other. The charming smile on his
bearded face exuded sexy elegance everywhere.

The legendary ‘yuppie man’—with a dash of villainy, they could be both attractive and seductive.

“Uncle Conrad, didn’t you bring your partner today?” Veronica asked, tilting her head and looking
behind him. As soon as the words left her mouth, a beam of light shot over her unexpectedly.

“Congratulations to our second group of lucky winners today, Miss Murphy and the gentleman in front
of her. Let us welcome them to the center of the dance floor with a round of applause.” Following the
announcement, thunderous applause rang out across the ballroom and everyone turned to look at her.

Veronica’s lips twitched uncontrollably. F*ck! Am I unlucky or am I unlucky?

Despite Conrad being taken aback, he extended a hand and made a chivalrous invitation with a
helpless smile. “Would you like to dance with me, little Roni?”

Everyone in the venue once again set their eyes on her. Their eyes were filled with envy, jealousy,
ridicule, contempt and mockery. There were all kinds of emotions and expressions on their faces and
the audience was just waiting to have a good laugh at her.

Caitlyn, who appeared out of nowhere, stood in front of Veronica while holding a male dance partner
and mockingly said, “Miss Murphy came from the country, so it must be really embarrassing for you to

Caitlyn had been slapped by Veronica at the gate of the Kings Residence the last time they met, so
naturally, it was reasonable for her to hold grudges against her. What a perfect opportunity this is to
finally have my turn… to humiliate her.
