Chapter 207 The Auction Competition
Having experienced a lot, Harper wasn’t offended by Shawn’s indifference. She continued, “I understand, Mr. Fallon. Important people have a lot on their plate. I’m Harper, and we met at the Fallon Group’s opening ceremony.”
Shawn, however, remained unimpressed, saying frankly, “Oh, I apologize, but I don’t recall that
This straightforward response left no room for misinterpretation and suggested a refusal.
Harper smiled awkwardly.
Observing this exchange, Gianna couldn’t help but suppress a smile. She hadn’t expected Shawn to be so blunt. Even though a stunning woman stood before him, he showed no interest.
At that moment, Levi arrived, wearing a finely crafted black suit.
In recent times, Rivera Group’s reputation has taken a hit.
To salvage it, he attended this charity auction.
It was an opportunity to contribute to a charitable cause while also trying to regain public favor.
The organizers greeted him with the utmost respect. “Mr. Rivera! It’s an honor to have you here.”
Despite the recent troubles involving the Rivera family, their status in Silver City has remained among the top. The organizers couldn’t afford to offend them.
Levi was invited to sit in the front row, conveniently placing him beside Gianna and Shawn.
As soon as Levi saw Gianna, his gaze never wavered, especially when he noticed Shawn sitting beside her. His expression darkened slightly, and his eyes narrowed.
However, he took his seat without further comment.
The host began. “We’re delighted to have everyone here tonight for this charity auction. All proceeds from tonight’s auction will go to the local Red Cross to support the elderly and orphans in need.”
After the applause subsided, the host continued, “Next up, we have our first item of the evening, a bracelet generously donated by Eloquent Group. The starting bid is one hundred thousand dollars.”
“Bidding at one hundred and ten thousand!”
“One hundred and thirty thousand!”
“One hundred and fifty thousand!”
The room was filled with escalating bids until the final price reached two hundred thousand dollars.
Gianna couldn’t help but ask Shawn, “What did you donate?”
Shawn answered, “Just a little thing, nothing valuable.”
With a casual glance, Gianna locked eyes with Levi, seated nearby.
Gianna paid him no more attention, focusing on the auction.
The auction continued, and the host announced. “Now, for the fifth item tonight, a men’s Omega wristwatch donated by Mr. Fallon of Fallon Group. The starting bid is five hundred thousand dollars.”
As the host’s words faded, Harper, sitting in the back row, raised her paddle and declared, “One

Her announcement caused a stir in the room, with many eyes turning toward Harper.
However, Harper just smiled faintly, looking determined to win.
Kaylee couldn’t hold back her comment. “What’s up with Harper? This watch isn’t worth more than a couple hundred thousand, and she’s willing to pay double the price. Is she out of her mind?”
Kelly observed Gianna’s direction and added, “I think Harper has her eyes on Shawn.”
Kaylee was surprised. “Is she interested in Shawn? What’s her plan?”
In Kaylee’s opinion, Gianna was the best, and a misguided sense of courage must have driven anyone daring to encroach on Gianna’s territory.
Who would dare to do that?
Kelly remarked, “Even if she wants to, she’ll need to see if the rightful owner approves. It seems we’re in for an interesting night.”
Kaylee quickly understood.
The auction continued with competitive bidding. “Alright, this lady bids one million dollars. Do we have any higher bids?”
“One million, going once.”
“One million, going twice.”
“One million, going three times!”
As the host was about to finalize the bid, Gianna, seated in the front row, raised her paddle and confidently declared, “Two million dollars!”
