Carla took a seat beside Terence and asked, "What is it?"

He glanced at the auction podium and then answered in a low voice, "There's an art piece that belonged to the Yu clan going into auction. I heard your grandmother used to cherish it very much. However, many years ago, a riot took place in Yu Sea City. In the middle of the chaos, someone seized the opportunity to steal the piece and later sold it."

Carla's eyes lit up at his words. "Grandpa has told me about this. It's the phoenix coronet, isn't it?"

"That's right."

Terence smiled, holding her hand.

"Due to its current owner's poor management skills, he has lost a lot of money. He's selling it out of necessity now. But for us, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity."

Carla sighed with relief. Now, she knew how to please her grandmother.

"Is it very expensive?"

Terence thought about it for a moment before answering, "I don't think so. It's just a golden crown. Its history only holds special meaning to the Yu clan.

But no matter what, I'm determined to bid it for you,"

he said with a confident smile.

Soon, the auction started.

Theo was sitting on the other side, playing with his girlfriend. He had no real interest in bidding on anything.

Meanwhile, Terence showed plenty of interest in a piece of fine china, which he gladly bid for.

Finally, close to the end of the auction, the phoenix coronet was brought to the stage. Carla could barely contain her excitement when she saw it.

The moment the auctioneer had everything settled, he began to introduce the crown to the audience.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we've come to one of the most important lots for today's event. Allow me to introduce you to the phoenix coronet. Coming from a historic matriarchal nation, this piece was passed down from each generation's matriarch to the other in the Yu clan. No one else was allowed to wear it but the clan leader herself.

The starting bid is ten million. Do I hear an offer?"

Carla took the card from Terence, ready to bid. She used to think auctions were a great waste of money, but this one held something she desperately wanted, and she didn't care about the cost.

"Mr. An, ten million. Anyone else?"

The auctioneer asked, staring at the whole audience below.

"Fifteen million!"

Someone else offered.

Carla turned arou

der he said his wife liked it. She was no one other than Callie in the flesh. Lori felt like she had just made a fool of herself.

As for Callie, she was so lucky. Steven was already one of the most talented men in the world.

And now that she had also met her husband, she couldn't believe the remarkable man he was. How could such an elegant and noble gentleman have fallen in love with her? Lori didn't understand what two outstanding guys could have ever seen in a girl like Carla.

This was all so wrong.

'Now, I need to head back to Yu Sea City as soon as possible. I need to discuss with Mom and Lucia how to proceed now, ' Lori thought to herself.

Carla and Terence left the auction hall with extreme satisfaction.

Carla was in a good mood as she handed the box with the crown to Rainer. "Please, help me send this home. But be careful."

The Phoenix coronet was fragile and she couldn't risk breaking it.

"Rest assured, Mrs. An! I'll put it in the safe and have my brother look after it 24/7. No worries!"

Rainer told her with a smile.

As soon as they got back, Carla and Terence learned that Andrea had given Nathan and Carol the day off. They had no idea where the two were, so Rainer was the only one left to handle the task.

She waited until Rainer left to turn to Terence.

"Honey, I'll pay you back for the coronet."

Carla wanted her grandmother to know that she had bought the crown for her and that she had the best intentions at heart.

Moreover, she still had her shares in the Hua Group, so she could afford it.
