My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 124
It was difficult to determine the value of the headdress, especially when it was an antique.
Ashlyn could not help but suck in a breath. She fixed her burning gaze at the kingfisher headdress. She loved it so very much.
The headdress’ colors were vibrant, and it was made with the most exquisite materials; in the past, only royalties were fit to wear headdresses like this.
Wealthy families would wear were the golden and silver ones.
This was the first time she had seen an antique headdress that was preserved so well.
It was magnificent.
In modern times, although some actors and actresses in plays would wear headdresses, the ones they wore were counterfeits.
Once the auctioneer announced its price of ten million, she uttered, “Twenty million.”
Almost at the same time, a man’s voice rang out. “Twenty million.”
The crowd was stunned. Jared loves her that much?
All of them thought Jared was the one paying.
However, they were more surprised when they realized Lucas seemed to like it as well. They’re so synchronized! Both called out an increment of ten million at the same time. Not one million or five million; it was ten million.
It seemed like they were determined to get it.
When Lucas saw the headdress, he was astounded. Once he recalled that Madeline Saunders had a preference for items like this, he was tempted to get it.
The next thing he thought about was Fae’s words. She had told him to cater to Madeline’s liking.
If he were going to meet Madeline, he could not be stingy with his gift.
However, he had not expected Ashlyn to like it too.
He stared at the headdress with a complicated look in his eyes before he said, “Let her have it.”
The crowd was silent; no one else called out a higher price.
Ashlyn turned to Jared. “The money.”
Jared swiftly stood up to swipe his card when Winsor rushed in front of him. “I’ll be the one to pay!”
The auctioneer looked at both of them and uttered, “There’s no need to rush. Mr. Nolan has already paid for it.”
Both Jared and Winsor were dumbfounded.
Dixon looked at Lucas nonchalantly as a wicked grin grew on his feminine face. “I wonder what Mr. Nolan’s collection is.”
Lucas swept his gaze in Ashlyn’s direction and muttered coldly, “It’s just something my wife doesn’t particularly like. Since she doesn’t, I’m selling it for charity.”
He was furious whenever he recalled the woman throwing the present he had carefully prepared for her on the table.
Something that Mrs. Nolan doesn’t like?
What is it?
The crowd was curious.
One of the staff then took out a red velvet box. When she opened it, the diamond necklace that was at least six carats gleamed brilliantly under the light.
The crowd in the hall could not help but curse under their breaths.
They could not believe that Mrs. Nolan did not like something as beautiful as that.
Then what the hell does she like?
No woman can resist the temptation of owning diamonds, right?
Desire flashed past Hera’s eyes. Since she met Lucas, the only thing that he had only given her was a bouquet of flowers. Although it was a large bouquet—there were 999 flowers in it—it was incomparable to the diamond necklace.
She felt upset. How does Mrs. Nolan look like?
She’s married to Lucas for four years. Do they really not have feelings for each other?
Hera had been confident earlier, thinking that she held a special place in Lucas’ heart.
She was so sure that he would divorce his wife.
Her confidence fled her.
Why am I panicking?
First, it was Mrs. Nolan; now it was Ashlyn.
Only God knew how jealous she was when she heard Lucas had spent twenty million on that headdress for Ashlyn.
She could not comprehend what was going on. Isn’t she just prettier? She’s flits around so many men like a butterfly.
Is Lucas really blind to this?
She has both Jared and Winsor wrapped around her finger.
Ashlyn infuriated Hera.
On the other hand, Winsor was contemplating. Is Ashlyn really not Lucas’ wife? That doesn’t sound right. But if she is, why isn’t she living with him? If she’s not, why did she take Blair away from Jaquin Residence?
