Susan took a deep breath and then turned around.
Behind her, Yana was holding Timothy’s hand and looking at her in surprise.
Timothy clenched his hands slightly before quickly loosening them.
Beside them were several girls, whom Susan recognized as Yana’s close friends whom she often hung out with.
“What a coincidence,” Susan said lightly.
A sweet smile appeared on Yana’s face. “Susan, we are going to get engaged. And I suggested buying some ordinary jewelry, but Timothy insisted on getting me the best. I couldn’t persuade him, so I had to come to the auction to take a look.”
Susan was silent for a moment and said in a soft voice, “Are you getting engaged? Congratulations to you.”
“Thank you, Susan.” Yana’s smile grew sweeter. “Timothy and I will definitely be very happy together. And you must also have a good time with your husband, Susan.”
Susan nodded casually, offering her response.
Yana looked around and suddenly said, “Susan, where is Ben? Why isn’t he here with you?”
Susan’s lips moved, as she was unsure of how to answer.
One of Yana’s friends chimed in with a smile, “Yana, don’t ask such questions. Ben is not the type to accompany his wife to buy jewelry, you
“Yeah, not everyone is as gentle and considerate as Mr. Leen.”
“Speaking of luck, Yana, you’re the lucky one.”
Yana’s friends were all flattering her.
A trace of triumph flashed across Yana’s eyes.
But Yana said, “Don’t say that. Ben is actually very good; he might just be busy with work.”
“Mr. Leen is busy too, but he still made it here, didn’t he? That’s the difference between caring and not caring.”

Those girls kept talking.
Susan lowered her gaze and said lightly, “I have something else to attend to Excuse me.”
Since Yana was there, Susan didn’t want to stay in this auction anymore.
“Susan, are you leaving now? The auction hasn’t even started yet,” Yana said as if she was caring about Susan.
“Yana, you don’t understand. Even though the auction hasn’t started, this is precisely the time to leave,” said one of the girls.
“Exactly. If the auction starts and Mrs. Landor can’t afford to buy any jewelry, it’ll be quite embarrassing.”
“I doubt Ben will give her money to buy jewelry anyway.”
“That’s why having a rich husband isn’t enough; it depends on whether he is willing to spend money on you.”
The group of friends chatted cheerfully, and Yana was delighted to hear their comments.
When they were done talking, Yana feigned concern and said, “Please, everyone, let’s not say such things. My sister is Mrs. Landor; how could she be short of money? Susan, please stay and at least buy some jewelry.”
Susan had originally intended to leave, but Yana persisted.
So she paused and looked at Yana with a faint smile. “Are you sure you want me to stay?”
“Of course, I hope you can stay,” Yana said, pushing Timothy gently. “Timothy, you want that too, right?”
Timothy uttered a word after a short silence, his voice cold. “Yes.”
At that moment, a dark thought stirred in his heart.
Hadn’t Susan chosen to marry Ben Landor for the sake of the Landor family’s power and influence?
He wanted her to realize that her choice was wrong.
He was willing to give everything to Yana, while Ben couldn’t give anything to her.
That was the difference.
Susan’s gaze also turned cold, and she said calmly, “Okay. Then I’ll stay.”
She found a seat at random, and Yana hurriedly pulled Timothy to follow. Yana’s group of girlfriends surrounded them.
The auction started soon.
This auction deserved its reputation.
Every piece of jewelry here was a unique masterpiece. Susan had initially wondered if the 200–thousand–dollar entry fee was too expensive, but she soon realized that nothing here sold for less than 200 thousand dollars.
Although the jewelry was exquisite, one couldn’t buy everything. Yana was determined to buy the best, so she refrained from bidding on the first few items.
It wasn’t until a delicate crown appeared on the auction block that Yana’s eyes lit up.
The crown was silver–white, adorned with a hundred exquisite pearls that glistened under the lights.
Yana couldn’t help but imagine how gorgeous she would look wearing this crown at her engagement party, outshining everyone else.
Timothy noticed Yana’s interest and instantly raised the bid from 200 thousand to one million when the auctioneer announced the starting. price.
The crowd looked at him in surprise.
Yana straightened her back, her smile radiating satisfaction.
She loved the feeling of being envied by everyone.
This crown is not only of considerable value, but it was worn by the first. queen of Riowert on her wedding day, making its historical significance quite high. The auctioneer was still trying his best to promote it.
With the added historical factor, the value of the crown further increased, prompting immediate bidding from the attendees.
Timothy confidently joined the bidding and continued until it reached 2.6 million.
The highest bid came from Timothy.
“Yana, I can’t wait to see you wearing this crown.”
“Yeah, it will look absolutely stunning.”
The ladies already began to flatter Yana.
The smile on Yana’s face became even brighter.

After reaching this point, the bidding had already slowed down significantly from what would be considered a reasonable price the the
The sudden increase of 400 thousand surprised the crowd.
And it seemed to come from Susan’s side.
The bidder was exactly Susan.
Yana’s smile faltered, and she asked. “Susan, why did you mise the prune
“Oh, it’s nothing,” Susan said casually I just think this crown looks quir
Since Yana had insisted on her staying. Susan felt the need to ge Yann surprise. After all, what good was being a sister if she couldn’t provide such a moment?
“Do… Do you have money?” Yana couldn’t help but ask.
“Don’t worry, I’m Mrs. Landor, and I do have some money Susan replied calmly.
Yana gave her a skeptical look and raised her voice. “Susan, it’s three million dollars! Your life in the Landor family hasn’t been easy. Why do you have to risk Ben’s displeasure over a crown?
The words “the Landor family” and “Ben” were sensitive topics, and more eyes turned towards them.
Everyone realized that this woman was none other than Ben’s wife, the subject of rumors and speculation.
Some had even placed bets on how long she could endure living with tine
Seeing the attention. Yana grew even more pleased and continued louis “Susan, I know that you don’t have that much savings. Buying this crown would likely mean spending the Landor family’s money. But woulch Sen be happy about you lavishly spending at the auction? What if the aUCTION house sells it to you and it angers Ben?”
Yana’s words made the auctioneer hesitate.
He was now unsure about selling the crown to Susan.
Susan bit her lip and gave Yana a piercing look.

But Yana didn’t hesitate and exchanged a defiant glance with her.
“What I want can only belong to me. Susan, you are too naive to compete with me,” Yana thought.
Just then, a cold, indifferent voice spoke up. “Interesting.”
Susan turned to look back and was stunned.
It was Ben! Why was he here?
Ben, with an expressionless face, descended the steps step by step.
His appearance was so horrible that people instinctively avoided his gaze.
Ben walked up to Susan.
And he looked at Yana, saying, “Why should my wife have to listen to your nonsense over a mere couple of million for a trinket?”
