"I don't think so. I'm his sister and since he only has me in his life. I have the responsibility to look after him and give the house to him. I think that is the right thing to do. Besides, I can live with you in the future."

Carla put on a shy smile and lowered her head to appear sweet and innocent. Whereas in actual fact, she was choosing her words carefully to deliberately make Ronnie dislike her.

Then she added, "After we are married, you will buy us a new house, right? Before my mother died, she told me that the bridegroom should pay a handsome bride price to my family.

It won't cost you too much money, and you will just need to offer 199, 999. But if you can't afford that amount of money, then I won't marry you."

Ronnie was so shocked by the amount of money that she was asking for, that he choked on his tea and even spat it out of his mouth.

"What's wrong, Mr. Luo? Are you all right?"

Carla blinked innocently at him and handed him a tissue.

With a straight face, Ronnie took the tissue from Carla and wiped the tea from his face and the table.

"Miss Ji, with all due respect, why do you still ask for a bride price when your parents have passed away?

It will just increase our burden."

Carla made a sad face and retorted, "What do you mean? Do you think that I should just let others walk all over me because I have no parents?"

"No, no, no. I didn't mean that at all. I just think that the bride price is just too much. I'm just an ordinary office worker, so I couldn't afford that much money. Well, if you really want to marry me. I will reduce the bride price to just 50, 000. What do you think?"

Since they were getting down to the nitty-gritty side of things, Ronnie thought it was best to be open and blunt about his feelings and thoughts.

After all, he was looking for a woman to marry, so these problems should be nipped in the bud from the very start.

"Besides, I think it would be a better idea to leave your house to our future son. This would ease the burden on us in the future. Don't you think so as well?"

Carla was amused and lowered her head to appear bashful once again, but she did it more so to hide the smile on her face. She had to bite her lower lip hard to stop herself from laughing out loud. Once she had composed herself she made a serious expression and looked up again.

"No, I don't agree with that at all. I have already decided to give two houses to my brother. As for you and me, we can live together in your house.

Besides, I can go to work as well and when we earn enough money, we can buy a new house for ourselves.

The bride price will show just how sincere you really are. What

However, when she looked up at Noah, she felt a little intimidated. She wondered whether such a handsome, gentle and friendly man could really be that dangerous.

"That sounds great.

But I have no idea how much homework my brother has. I will check with him when I get back home. It would be wonderful if I can take him there to play,"

Carla responded vaguely. She thought that it would be best to think of an excuse to reject his offer after she got home.

Although she didn't believe everything that Terence had said about Noah. She did, however, think that it was best to be cautious around people like him.

She was afraid that if he really was as dangerous and ruthless as Terence said and she offended him in some way, he may retaliate against her and Sean.

"Miss Carla, are you afraid of me?"

Noah raised his eyebrow and stared at her intently. He was very good at observing people. He could tell by Carla's body language and the expression in her eyes that she seemed afraid of him.

Two days ago, he got news from his men, that Carla once rescued a man and let him stay in her house.

The man's description matched that of Terence of the An family, who had been missing for some time before.

His investigation proved to be correct and the mystery man certainly was Terence An.

Noah assumed that Carla and Terence were still in contact with each other. And, because Terence would surely know of Noah's background, he would most likely have told Carla about Noah.

If that were the case, then it would be meaningless for him to hide his surname from Carla.

And perhaps his plot would be disclosed by others before he had time to take any action.

With this in mind, Noah started to feel enraged, even though he still looked calm on the outside.
