On this day, Susan deliberately kept herself on edge, not daring to fall into deep sleep.
But when she woke up early, the servant said that Ben had already gone out for a morning jog.
Susan went downstairs after washing up and coincidentally ran into Ben coming back.
Despite the weather turning colder, Ben was still covered in sweat.
The sweat dripped down his forehead, accentuating his scars, making them appear more menacing.
Probably because Susan grew accustomed to it, she didn’t find it scary
She hurried forward and said, “Ben, next time you go for a run, you can let me know so I can join you.”
Ben glanced at her with a faint expression. “There’s no need for that.” Sensing the detachment in his words, Susan froze for a moment and did not say anything further. But in her heart, she was slightly distressed.
Last night, everything was perfectly fine at the beginning. Why did things suddenly change? The rumors were true–Ben was unpredictable.
Ben looked at her and remained silent.
His attitude should have made it clear to Susan what he meant.
A person like him shouldn’t have been involved in any romance.
It was best to stifle it before anything happened.
During breakfast, everyone ate in silence, especially Ben. He purposely took a seat far away from Susan, seemingly determined to keep his distance from her.
Penelope glanced at Ben and then at Susan, with a hint of a smirk in her

Ben was a capricious man, and just because he had helped Susan before didn’t mean he would continue to do so.

Sean was also confused and shook her head, saying, “No.”
Peuclope gave her a sympathetic look and said. “You don’t have to hide it. Ben has always been moody. Even if he likes something for a moment, be will forget about it soon. When he was ten years old, he had a cat that he adored. He used to sleep while holding it every night. But then, one day inexplicably, he had a grim expression and had the cat sent away. Since then, we have never seen it again. So, don’t blame him. He’s not targeting you, he simply can’t stay committed. You have to learn to be patient.”
Penelope seemed to be teaching Susan, but her words were uncomfortable to hear.
That being said. Susan also didn’t understand how Ben’s attitude could have suddenly changed.
She pursed her lips and said nothing.
“What are you talking about?” Charlie glared at Penelope and added, “Can a cat be compared to a person?”
Penelope instantly felt aggrieved. “I was just giving an example. Forget it. As a stepmother, no matter what I do now, it’s always wrong. Susan, just treat it as a joke and don’t take it seriously.”
“Of course, I won’t. Susan forced a smile.
Charlie couldn’t help but glare at Penelope again and then said, “Susan, I know that Ben has a bad temper, but deep down, he really is a good man. Relationships take time to develop. Don’t worry.”
Charlie really liked Susan. He was worried that Ben’s temper might scare her away. After some thought, he took out a card and handed it to Susan. “Susan, when you married into the family, we did prepare some things, but as I don’t know your preferences, there might be some things that don’t suit your taste. Take this card and buy some jewelry, accessories, or clothes.
Susan was taken aback and hurriedly said, “Mr. Landor, you don’t have to do this.”

Just take it. From now on, you can keep it yourself and buy whatever you want. This card is linked to Ben’s main card. Even if you buy a few small countries, you won’t be able to run out of money on it,” Charlie said as he handed the card to Susan determinedly.
Susan couldn’t resist the insistence of Charlie, so she had to take the card.
She didn’t plan on using Ben’s money; she just wanted to keep the card safe.
Penelope was watching from the side, her eyes filled with jealousy.
She wanted that card, but Charlie never gave it to her. Yet he easily gave it to Susan, who had just been their family member for a few days!
She was so mad about Charlie’s partiality to Susan.
“Alright, you don’t need to keep an old man like me company at home. Today, go out and buy yourself something. Have fun.” Charlie waved his hand. “I’ll have the driver take you out. You are not allowed to go home today without spending ten million dollars.”
Susan was shocked.
Ten million dollars!
Why did Charlie speak about it as casually as if it were one dollar? She felt a bit flustered.
She was just about to figure out how to refuse when Charlie directly pushed her out.
The driver was already waiting outside, and Susan was pushed into the car in a daze.
“Don’t bring her home until she spends ten million dollars,” Charlie said to the driver domineeringly.
The driver responded loudly.
“Mr. Landor was acting like a child…” Susan thought. She could only
Watching the car go away, Charlie couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief.
He was worried sick about Ben’s marriage.
He thought that the previous girl was not suitable for Ben.
But as for Susan, he strongly felt that this girl would bring him surprises. Perhaps she was the one who could redeem Ben from the darkness.

Ben was so difficult, and Charlie could only personally help him please his wife.
He hoped that his efforts would not be in vain.
“Mrs. Landor, is there anywhere you would like to go?” the driver asked respectfully.
That gave Susan a headache. “Let’s just go somewhere and wander.”
The driver said in a gentle voice, “Mrs. Landor, Mr. Landor is quite resolute in his decisions. Forgive me for being blunt, but if you don’t spend all ten million dollars, he might really not let you return home.” Speechless, Susan thought, “Why is he forcing me to spend money?” But she could only try to figure out where she could go to spend this
The driver then suggested, “There’s a luxury jewelry auction today. Would you like to take a look?”
“A luxury jewelry auction? That sounds like it would cost a lot of money,” Susan mused.
“Let’s go!” Susan made up her mind instantly.
The driver agreed and took her to the auction.
After getting out of the car, Susan looked around.
The auction hadn’t officially started yet, but she could see many well–dressed people making their way inside.
Entering the auction was simple; all she had to do was spend 200 thousand dollars to purchase a temporary card. If she bought something during the auction, the 200 thousand dollars would be deducted from her total. If not, or if there was a remaining balance, it would be refunded.
The 200 thousand dollars mainly served as a barrier to keep out those without the financial means.
Susan bought the temporary card and was about to find a discreet place to sit when suddenly, a voice of surprise rang out.
“Oh, Susan, why are you here?”
This voice made Susan’s back stiffen.
