Chapter 993 Shameless Woman
In this auction, Arielle had purchased an antique vase for ten million. Marcus was the one who had donated this vase.
Although Arielle didn’t have much interest in antiques, she purchased this vase in an effort to help Teddy and the rest rebuild their village.
Just as Arielle was going to pay for the vase, a tall and muscled figure blocked her path.
Startled, Arielle lifted her gaze, only to meet Aaron’s eyes.
When she noticed the man raising his hand, Arielle instinctively flinched backward as she was afraid that he was planning to harm her.
However, Aaron merely opened his palms.
Looking down, Arielle noticed a black jewelry box in Aaron’s hands.
“What is this?” Arielle asked, dumbfounded.
“It’s a gift for you.” Aaron winked mischievously as he opened the box to reveal its contents.
The hundred million necklace he had bought in the auction earlier was nestled inside.
“Now that we’ve finally met each other, do you still like me?” The corners of Aaron’s mouth curved into an alluring smile, a playful glint in his eyes.
His actions had drawn the attention of nearby onlookers. When they saw Aaron giving Arielle the necklace, they were astounded that their eyes nearly bulged out of their heads.
Isn’t that necklace worth one hundred million? How could he give it away so easily?
Wendy, who was amongst the onlookers, widened her eyes in utter disbelief.
Despite spending so much money on the necklace, he didn’t keep it. Instead, he’s giving it to Arielle just because they finally met? What is his relationship with Arielle?
Similarly, Arielle was also taken aback by Aaron’s extravagant gift.
However, she quickly regained her composure. Shaking her head, she uttered, “Thank you for your gift, but I must apologize. It is too expensive. I can’t accept it.”
“I bought this especially for you. In my eyes, you are the only person worthy of this necklace.”
Arielle could not help but frown. “I’m sorry, but I still can’t accept your gift. I don’t even know you.”
“You don’t know me?” Aaron said with a hurtful pout. “Despite our countless intimate interactions, I can’t believe you still insist that we are strangers. Kitten, you are wounding my heart.”
Hearing this, Arielle flushed with anger. “Don’t spout nonsense! I have never even met you before!”
“We’ve never met?” Aaron leaned forward and blew at her ear to tease her. “Arielle, I’ve searched for you far and wide. Do you know how much it pains my heart to hear that you can’t recognize me? Aren’t you going to take responsibility for hurting my feelings?”
“What are you saying?” Aaron’s antics were driving her up the wall. With an icy gaze, she glared at Aaron and said, “I’m warning you, if you continue to babble on with your nonsense, I won’t hesitate to call the police!”
“The police?” Aaron was unfazed by Arielle’s threat. “Go ahead. In fact, I was planning to do the same thing too. I’m going to lodge a report against a certain kitten who had abandoned me after she provoked my feelings,” he replied with a nonchalant shrug.
Unable to restrain her frustrations any longer, Arielle sent her fist hurtling at Aaron’s face.
However, Aaron’s reflexes were much faster than hers, as he had anticipated her movement. In the blink of an eye, he caught her arm before she could hit him. Aaron yanked her toward him, causing Arielle to lose her balance and fell into his arms.
“Kitten, I’ve been waiting for you for several days now. Now that I have found you, I won’t let you out of my grasp again,” Aaron whispered. Although Arielle was the only one within earshot, their intimate position caused many onlookers to misunderstand their relationship.
“I can’t believe this!” Cecilia’s plan to snap a picture was long forgotten. “Arielle, aren’t you involved with Vinson? How could you flirt with another man in broad daylight? Susanne and Vison would be speechless if they saw you acting like a shameless woman!”
“Shameless woman?” Aaron’s eyes narrowed dangerously as a menacing look twinkled in them.
