Chapter 23 Everyone Liked Beauty
The staff acted quickly, brought the bracelet during the transition, and stood aside waiting for Naomi to write the check.
Everyone provided the information of their own company at the auction, and if they tried to evade orders, they would be sued by the auction house.
Naomi could only sign the check with shaking hands.
A few rows behind the seats.
Maverick had a big smile on his face. “It’s really lucky today to meet such an idiot.”
This bracelet cost at most 300 thousand dollars. He was cheated by a jewelry dealer back then, and he paid an extra 200 thousand dollars to buy it for his mother. He didn’t expect his mother to dislike it and let him bring it to the auction house.
His eyes stayed on the beautiful woman who was bidding with that idiot.
Everyone liked beauty.
Not to mention such an interesting beauty.
Maverick’s curiosity was aroused by Gianna.
“Why do I think she looks familiar? Who is it?” Maverick asked the boss of Verdant Group next to him.
“I heard that her name is Gianna Lewis.”
“Gianna Lewis?” Maverick read this name, and the pimple–faced little girl of the Lewis family flashed in his mind, and he immediately got goose bumps all over his body.
It shouldn’t be!
Rubbing his eyes, he looked at Gianna’s beautiful side face again. He was very sure that they were definitely not the same person. They just had the same name.
The next item was brought up on stage.
“It’s an antique pocket watch. Start at five million dollars!”
Gianna saw that the pocket watch was the one Chaim had asked her to get, so she raised her hand and called, “Six million dollars!”
“Six and a half million dollars!”
Without Naomi’s random bidding, the auction went very smoothly, and Gianna finally got the pocket watch for seven million dollars.
Naomi’s heart trembled, feeling angry and resentful, but she didn’t bid with Gianna again for fear that she would use that trick again.
The money in her account was indeed not enough.
Her voice was still weak. “Levi, I haven’t seen Ms. Lewis for a few days, and she is.really impressive.
“When she divorced you, she didn’t take any money. Now, she spent a lot of money on an auction,
and she paid seven million dollars for a pocket watch just like that.”
As she spoke, she paid attention to Levi’s expression. “She suddenly becomes the president assistant of Empyrean Group. It is a high–level position that can hold shares, and its authority is second only to the president.
“I heard that Mr. Chaim Lewis entrusted her with all the important projects at hand and let her do it freely, just like when she was by your side…”
Levi’s face was gloomy when he heard this. He frowned, and an unknown anger surged into his heart.
When she was by his side…
Could it be that this woman also wanted to be Chaim’s wife?.
Naomi wanted to continue talking but was interrupted by Levi coldly, “Is there anything else to see? If not, we’ll leave.”
Seeing that Levi was already angry, Naomi immediately pretended to feel sorry. “Is it because I talk too much? Levi, don’t be angry.”
“It’s okay. Let’s go.”
The Empyrean Group was the major shareholder of Christie’s auction house, and there was no need to pay for the auction items separately. Gianna was invited to the VVIP room alone to confirm the auction items.
After signing the confirmation letter, the staff put down the pocket watch and left, allowing her to
rest for a while.
Gianna put the pocket watch into the box, and when she raised her head, she saw Levi push the door in.
Her tone was cold. “What are you doing here?”
Levi stood by the door with a storm brewing in his deep eyes. He asked with doubts in his tone, “What is the relationship between you and Chaim?”
He asked Naomi to wait in the car, and he used the excuse of going to the bathroom to find the place just to get the answer from Gianna himself.
