However, the person who entered through the door wasn’t Gerald.“Danny! What are you doing here?”The expression on Naomi’s face changed as soon as she saw Danny.Both of them were classmates and Naomi was once close to them.However, Naomi had found out that morning that Danny had played a trick on Gerald. Therefore, Naomi lost her temper at Danny.Unexpectedly, this guy was so thick-skinned and he actually came here even though she had just scolded him.“Naomi, are you still angry? I was just joking around with Gerald last night. Who would’ve thought that he’d actually deliver the box to Yuri?”Danny replied as he smiled cheerfully.Several of his roommates also came with him and they all brought gifts with them.Speaking of it, Naomi’s family was also very wealthy and Naomi had already offered to help Gerald several times. However, Gerald had always rejected her goodwill.Danny had known Naomi ever since they were in high school.“Naomi, is this the Gerald that you were g
Gerald walked out of the room immediately.At this time, Naomi and the head of Gerald’s dormitory, Harper, chased after Gerald immediately.“What are you doing? I didn’t say that I don’t like your gift,” Naomi said anxiously.Harper also spoke up at this time. “Gerald, don’t leave. Stay and have dinner before you go. If you leave now, we’ll be very bored here.”Gerald smiled before he replied, “You guys can continue having fun here. There’s really something I have to do now but I hope you guys will believe I’m not the kind of person who would buy something fake!”Gerald did not know if his friends would believe him.As he thought about it, Gerald could only blame his sister for giving him the card with a minimum spending amount of fifty thousand dollars.Even though Harper and Naomi kept persuading Gerald, he still decided to leave in the end.“Did that pauper really leave?” Danny asked with a smile as soon as Naomi and Harper returned to the room.Harper replied, “Danny, can’
At the same time, in the most luxurious room in the manor, a middle-aged man with a very majestic aura was socializing with a group of businessmen.He was the owner of Wayfair Mountain Entertainment on Mayberry Commercial Street and this naturally made him the richest man in Mayberry City.However, everyone was surprised at this time.This was because as soon as Mr. Lyle answered the phone, he stood up in shock before he ran out of the room frantically.“What’s wrong with Mr. Lyle?”Everyone could not understand his behavior at all.At the front desk, Sebastian had not entered his room yet and he saw Gerald entering the manor again. He couldn’t help but offer to help Jane get rid of Gerald.“Miss Jane, why don’t you just call for security? There isn’t any other way to deal with this kind of hillbilly!”Sebastian smiled coldly at Gerald.Jane nodded before she motioned for a few security guards to step forward.“Stop!”At this time, Zack rushed out to the front hall as quickl
Gerald scratched his head awkwardly.In fact, he had been trying to avoid Naomi and her friends.He especially wanted to avoid Alice since she seemingly hated him so much. Therefore, Gerald didn’t want to waste his time trying to butter up to her.“Danny was the one who suggested that we have some fun at Emperor Karaoke Bar on Mayberry Commercial Street. If you try to run away this time, we’ll no longer be friends!” Naomi told Gerald upfront.She had always been a very straightforward and outgoing person and she did not put too much thought into any situation at all.Therefore, she would never be able to understand that Gerald was not from the same world as them.Of course, this was all in the past.When Naomi saw that Gerald was not saying anything, she quickly said once again, “Okay, let’s go and have some fun together! I know you’re afraid that Danny will try to make things difficult for you again, but don’t worry about him. If he tries to pick on you again, I’ll make sure to
Danny sneered before he said, “Yes, it’s him!”Nigel had a very strange expression on his face and he quickly retracted the hand that he had held out to Gerald.After that, he patted Gerald on his shoulder before he said, “Brother Gerald, I’ve already heard your name for a very long time. I have also met your ex-girlfriend, Xavia. She’s really very beautiful. I’d like to apologize to you because my brother stole your girlfriend from you!”“By the way, if you’d like to have some fun at Mayberry Commercial Street, just mention my name and you’ll get a thirty discount immediately!”Nigel apologized in a light manner.“Brother Nigel, it’s useless even if he mentions your name as he won’t be able to afford anything on this street anyway!”At this time, Alice and her roommates could not stop themselves from laughing out loud.“I’m sorry! When Yuri said that he fell in love with a poor chap’s girlfriend, I assumed that the girl wouldn’t be that beautiful anyway. However, I caught a gli
Gerald quickly explained the situation to Zack and Zack quickly nodded in response.“By the way, Brother Zack, do you know someone named Nigel Fisher? I heard that his family runs a restaurant on Mayberry Commercial Street.”At this time, Gerald’s brows were tightly knitted together.He was not someone with any sinister thoughts.However, Nigel was the one who had given Yuri the idea to steal Gerald’s girlfriend, Xavia, from him. Nigel was the reason why he had to suffer so much humiliation.Therefore, Gerald really wanted to know what would happen if Nigel and his family lost all of their money.“Nigel? Yes, his father is one of my subordinates. Moreover, the restaurant that his family is operating is actually registered under your name. Did he offend you in any way?”Zack was very cautious at this time.After a short while, Zack quickly replied, “I know what I have to do, Gerald. Don’t worry! Just leave it to me.”***In fact, Gerald did not know what Zack was going to do.
“Huh? How’s that possible? Who else would be as powerful or influential as Brother Nigel on Mayberry Commercial Street? Harper, are you talking about yourself?”Danny sneered at this time.Harper replied immediately, “I’m not saying that it was me but I just have my doubts about this matter. Moreover, some of us had actually called some of our friends earlier. Perhaps everyone should ask around and see if any of our friends have actually helped us resolve this matter? We should make sure that we’re thanking the right person.”“That makes sense too!”Alice had a solemn expression on her face.“Alright then. Everyone, please check with the people that you called earlier so we’ll know for certain if Brother Nigel was really the one who helped us.”Alice was also referring to Nigel in a very intimate manner.After that, everyone started calling their friends and families.Gerald felt a little awkward at this time.Should he tell them the truth about the matter?However, before Ge
Gerald knew that whatever photograph she was talking about was just an excuse to meet him.In fact, Gerald did not want to meet Xavia at all.He felt very heartbroken because he really loved her before this.However, he would be lying if he said that he did not have any feelings for her.As soon as Gerald heard Xavia’s depressed voice, he agreed to meet her immediately.He got up and looked for the pictures that he had been keeping in his cupboard all this while.They had both taken these pictures by the small lake by the campus before this.At that time, Xavia had held out her arms affectionately and Gerald had also taken her in his arms as he smiled sweetly at her.However, now that the situation had already developed into the way it had, Gerald’s heart was aching badly.Gerald stared at the one hundred thousand dollars that he had withdrawn from the bank that morning.In fact, Gerald wanted to spend that money to enjoy life and make up for everything that he had missed out
