Elaine spent the rest of the morning daydreaming repeatedly about the million-dollar present that Jason had prepared for her. What could it be? She didn’t even have the mood to play cards anymore and quickly rushed to the Divine Lounge to meet up with Jason when it was time.
What would the gift be? Jewelry? Diamonds? Cash? A cheque? Or something else?
For people like Elaine who were on the fiddle, Jason’s lucrative gift was such an alluring attraction.
The other day, when she had used Claire’s cheque to pay for the hospital bill and exploited 160,000 dollars from it, she was so happy that she had grinned over her cleverness for days.
Hence, the thought of getting a million-dollar gift from Jason immediately sent her to cloud nine!
At 11.30 am, Elaine bid farewell to her friends, took a taxi, and went straight to the Divine Lounge.
When she arrived at the restaurant, she stood by the door as agreed and waited for Jason to come.
Soon, a brand new black Mercedes Benz slowly rolled to a stop in front of her.
Then, the car door opened, and a young man in a suit and leather shoes stepped out of the car.
It was Jason.
He was very handsome and stylish. The only downside was that he was limping.
A lot of ladies were attracted by Jason’s cool looks and the awesome Mercedes Benz, but when they saw that he was limping, they sighed dejectedly and walked away.
All of these minor expressions from the onlookers fell into Jason’s sight and made his blood boil. He hated Charlie and Anthony to the core and wanted them to be wiped off the face of the earth completely.
However, Elaine was standing not far from him, so he suppressed the anger and hatred, limping toward Elaine with a gentle smile on his face.
“Hi, Auntie. Sorry to keep you waiting.”
“Oh, no, Jason, I just arrived…”
Then, she peeked at the brand new Mercedes Benz behind Jason and asked in surprise, “Oh, is that your new car?”
Jason smiled politely. “Yes. It’s a Mercedes Benz S500. I just got it from the showroom today. It’s not very expensive anyway, just over 1.6 million.”
Then, he handed the car key to Elaine and said, “Auntie, please accept this key.”
Elaine frowned in confusion upon taking the key and asked, “Jason, what is the meaning of this?”
“Auntie, this is the gift I told you about over the phone! I saw that Uncle and Claire both have a BMW, but you don’t have a car yet. It’s such a pity for someone of your status.”
Elaine was extremely thrilled. “Oh, Jason, you shouldn’t have! This is so expensive!”
Despite her remark, she was clutching the car key tightly in her hand and had no intention of returning it to Jason.
Of course, Jason sensed this and said, “Honestly, Uncle and Claire are driving the lower class BMW 5 Series, their combined total doesn’t even exceed a million. This S500 is so much better and luxurious than theirs, I think you are very suited to drive the classy Mercedes Benz. It is my little token of affection, so, please accept it.”
Elaine was over the moon!
She was the stereotypical representative of the kind of a snobbish and greedy mother-in-law!
