Te Rums In Unexpected Ways
Emilia’s initial response to Hayden’s request was the presumption that he intended to introduce her to some influential individuals.
“He isn’t exactly a big shot. Simon will be attending the auction, and he has been incessantly discussing his intention to purchase a jewelry set for you!” Hayden revealed.
Had Emilia been in Hayden’s physical presence, she would have undoubtedly. discerned the mischievous smile on his face.
Nevertheless, even in his absence, she could glean from his tone that he harbored a desire to witness an entertaining spectacle unfold the following day.
She then reminisced about the night she danced with Simon at the bar, a tad tipsy at the time. On that same occasion, she had even slapped Nathan.
Emilia instantly shook her head.
“Why am I thinking about that man again?” she thought.
“If you persist in teasing both him and me, I will stop to be your friend,” she cautioned.
In the company of her close friend, Emilia exhibited a rare trace of helplessness. She even puffed her cheeks as exasperation manifested in her countenance.
“I don’t believe you.”
Hayden shrugged, wearing a smile. He held the belief that his friendship with Emilia wouldn’t be readily severed by mere words.
Meanwhile, Nathan, who had been deeply incensed by Emilia, received a call from his mother, Fiona, en route to the company.
Nathan could feel his temples pulsating with pain as Fiona created quite a commotion through the other end of the call.
“Turn around. We’re heading to the Miller man Shawn in a low voice.
ordered Nathan toward
Shawn promptly turned the steering wheel and altered the car’s course.
Nathan consistently hesitated when it came to returning to the Miller mansion, primarily due to Noah’s fondness for Emilia. Each time Nathan headed home, he found himself receiving Noah’s scolding regarding Emilia.
Fortunately, Noah was not home that day.
“Son, your wedding day is arriving soon. Why are you still gallivanting outside? You can’t leave all the wedding arrangements solely in Jessica’s hands.”
Upon catching sight of Nathan, Fiona rushed to greet him and firmly grasped his sleeve. Her eyes bore a mixture of delight and subtle reproach.
“I didn’t leave all the arrangements in her hands. I’ve arranged for someone to

deal with it”
Nathan’s countenance bore a tinge of frostiness. He couldn’t comprehend why his mother was making such a fuss, given that he had already engaged a wedding consultant with hefty pay to oversee all the details concerning Jessica and his wedding.
“How could it be the same? Didn’t you know how important a wedding is to women? That’s when a woman’s dream comes true.”
As Fiona spoke, she concurrently bore an expression infused with nostalgia. Despite Noah’s lack of fondness for Fiona, there was no denying that her wedding with Nathan’s father could still be deemed extravagant even by today’s standards.
Although he readily acquiesced to his mother’s wishes, he didn’t take them to heart. This was primarily because he was a busy individual. Furthermore, when he had married Emilia in the past, he hadn’t needed to immerse himself in such
Fiona noticed the impatient expression on her son’s face, and her smile froze.
The Bennett family possesses substantial resources. Even though Jessica has lost the ability to walk, her wealth can undoubtedly be beneficial to you. In any case, you must be considerate and treat her with kindness! Do not allow her to harbor any grievances!” Fiona urged.
Observing that the Bennett family was on the verge of falling under the influence of the Miller family, Fiona was determined to prevent any further occurrences that might jeopardize the situation.
However, Nathan didn’t share the same thoughts as his mother.
He lightly brushed his shoulder and gazed into the distance, wearing a stern countenance. “My choice to marry Jessica has no connection to the influence backing her. I simply wish to marry her, he declared.
“Oh, I see. I understand, Fiona responded. A take her son’s words seriously.

If Jessica had no influence supporting her, Fiona wouldn’t have allowed Jessica to be the daughter–in–law of the Miller family. Besides, Jessica was paralyzed. Nonetheless, she contemplated that once the Bennett family’s influence was completely within the Miller family’s grasp, she could easily acquire another daughter–in–law.
“In that case, I’ve heard from my friends that there’s going to be an auction in the southern district tomorrow. They mention there will be numerous treasures and antiques on display. I plan to attend. Would you consider taking Jessica along? It might be a good opportunity to purchase a gift for her and help alleviate her nervousness about the wedding,” Fiona suggested.
Upon hearing Fiona’s words, Nathan couldn’t help but reflect on Jessica’s enduring

turmoil stemming from her paralysis, which had left her perpetually in a state of tearful distress.
He felt that Fiona’s suggestion would be helpful. So, he nodded. “I will.”
“By the way, Nathan, for my card’s limit, can you…”
With the discussion having progressed to this juncture, Fiona harbored no inclination to forgo the chance to obtain some advantages.
After a while, Fiona let Nathan go with satisfaction and allowed him to continue his work in the study.
As Nathan remained in the serene room, his thoughts were filled with Emilia’s aloof and unfeeling demeanor earlier in the day.
He subsequently reminisced about how Emilia had appeared in those days. She had emanated gentleness, her gaze overflowed with affection, her murmurs were delicate, and her cheeks would invariably be tinged with a subtle blush whenever she set eyes on him.
Nathan didn’t snap out of his reverie until the blue screen illuminated, and his countenance slowly soured.
“Did my mind wander because of Emilia just now?” he mused.
The next day arrived soon.
Hayden pulled up in his attention–grabbing sports car and came to a stop in front. of Emilia. He was instantly taken aback by the scenery before him.
The silver–white fishtail dress, which clung snugly to her figure and glistened like scattered diamonds, radiated brilliant ripples under the sunlight, reminiscent of cresting waves.
Atop diamond–studded high heels, sparkling ribbons elegantly wound around her long and graceful legs.
Paired with a plush lynx fur stole on her upper body and striking scarlet lips, she exuded an undeniably regal and queenly aura.
“Are you endeavoring to dissuade others from competing with you for the auction. items through the sheer force of your temperament and beauty?”
Hayden’s adoring gaze remained locked on Emilia, almost impossible to divert.
Emilia heard the praise in Hayden’s words and smiled. “If that were the case, it would be wonderful. By the way, won’t there be many businesspeople in attendance at the auction?”
“Yes,” Hayden responded to Emilia’s words and nodded.
“Before the auction commences, there will be a dedicated banquet for everyone to interact. It’s intended to encourage early communication among all the guests, thereby avoiding situations where two opposing factions vie for the same items. After all, there’s truly no necessity for heated confrontations to occur for the sake of this auction,” he elucidated.

This arrangement did indeed seem ideal. In any case, her primary objective was to acquire her father’s antique porcelain bowls. As for the other items, she merely wished to appreciate and gain knowledge about them.
Emilia’s glamorous outfit had stunned many people at the auction.
Beyond her alluring curves and striking appearance, what truly seized everyone’s attention was the staff’s address as she entered the venue, “Chairman of Saunders Group.”
“Wait a minute.”
Hayden, who was accompanying Emilia into the auction venue slowly, came to an abrupt stop.
