Hannah exchanged the number with Fredrick out of respect for her mother so as not to embarrass her and prevent her from getting mad later.
Steven understood that, so he didn’t say anything. Anyway, no one could take Hannah away from him.
“Aren’t you jealous?” Hannah couldn’t help asking Steven in a low voice.
“Why should I be jealous?” Steven said calmly.
He put his hand directly on Hannah’s beautiful thigh and said, “I can touch your thigh, can he?”
Hannah almost laughed out loud. His answer was so funny. However, she liked it!
Melody and Fredrick didn’t notice their petty actions.
Melody said to Fredrick, “Mr. Reagan, you can ask Hannah out for dinner when you are free. Hannah, you have lived in Mimar City for so many years, and you should be a guide for Mr. Reagan! He is an important guest I invited from Rikkus, take care of him. This is an order. Do you understand?”
Hannah said, “Yeah, I get it. I’ll walk him around after I finish my work.”
It wouldn’t be the first time she stood someone up. She had many wooers. They were all reeled in by her.
One of the greatest good deeds Hannah had done in this life was to let many men understand the truth. A simp would always end up with nothing.
Melody said, “Some people need a little self–knowledge. Don’t always think about jumping up. The right way is to do things step by step!”
In Melody’s eyes, Steven was completely the kind of social climber who could only lie to women with sweet words. Compared with Fredrick, he was like rubbish.
Fredrick also felt that he needed to show some strength to make Steven the idiot feel ashamed to leave, so he stood up with a smile and walked to Hannah’s side.
“Hannah, today is your birthday. I don’t know what you like, so I just prepared you a gift randomly. This is our first meeting, and I hope that our future meetings will be more pleasant. This is just a little something, please accept it!” While speaking, Fredrick gave Hannah a small gift box.
Melody said with a smile, “Why don’t you open it and have a look? This is a gift Mr. Reagan carefully selected for you!”
Fredrick and Melody didn’t seem to take Steven seriously at all. Although Hannah introduced him as her boyfriend when she took him here, they still regarded him as nothing.
Hannah didn’t pretend. She didn’t want her mother and Steven to have too much quarrel, so now she had to play at it. When she couldn’t do that, she would just fool Fredrick like fooling any of her wooers before.
After opening the gift box, Hannah saw a key card lying in it. On the surface of the key card was a landscape painting that Hannah was somewhat familiar with.
“Uh? I seem to have one of this kind of key card?” Hannah was stunned for a while and finally remembered.
She did have a key card like that, and the color of it was brighter than this one. It was golden. And that key card was given to her by Jordan. It was the key card of Almonube Palace!
Fredrick said with a smile, “I have heard for a long time that the Almonube Estate villa area in Mimar City is not only a residence but a work of art! I went to investigate and found that it was really nice, so I bought a set and gave it to you as a birthday gift.”
Steven was stunned.
Not a residence but a work of art? Seriously?!
He didn’t think the place where he lived was so artistic.
Melody said lightly, “Hannah, you live in Mimar City. You should know how much a villa in Almonube Estate is worth, right?”
The villas in the Almonube Estate villa area were worth at least three million dollars, and there were many of them worth hundreds of millions. Among them, Almonube Palace was sold for a whopping price of 400 million!
“It’s just a villa. I’ve lived in Almonube Palace for so many days, why didn’t I see anything artistic on it?” Steven smiled disdainfully and said lightly.
After hearing what Steven said, Fredrick and Melody were taken aback.
Fredrick couldn’t help showing a contemptuous smile on his face. He said, “You said that you live in Almonube Palace, Mr. Evans?”
Fredrick said with a smile, “As far as I know, the person who bought Almonube Palace is Rudolph Wolfgang, the famous king of Nightking in the Underground world of Hechland.”
Melody also came back to her senses. She shook her head helplessly and looked at Hannah with more dissatisfaction. She even felt that Steven was just a shield Hannah took there, and they were not in a relationship at all. After all, Hannah was her daughter, and she knew her taste in men. She should despise this kind of inferior man who was full of lies and vanity.
He could even tell the lie that he lived in the Almonube Palace. That was so ridiculous!
“It seems that you’re very well–informed. However, don’t you know that Rudolph has already given that villa to me?” Steven said.
“I haven’t heard of that!” Fredrick couldn’t help laughing, and his laughter was full of disdain.
At this time, he had the same opinion as Melody. Steven was just a shield Hannah took there. He was just a big talker who had no skills and could only brag.
How could Hannah fall in love with such a foolish man?
Hannah smiled, pushed the gift box back, and said, “Mr. Reagan, I can’t accept such an expensive gift! I appreciate your kindness, but I really can’t accept it!”
It was natural for a woman to show proper restraint in front of a man, and Fredrick would not force Hannah to accept such a birthday gift.
“She has lived in the 400 million Almonube Palace for a long time, how could she be willing to live in the tens of thousands of villas you gave her?” Steven mocked.
Melody sneered, and Fredrick laughed too. They didn’t say anything but ignored Steven directly. Melody even glanced at Hannah, feeling that she had seen through her.
Hannah did not accept that gift, but Fredrick felt that his strength had been revealed a little, so there was no need to worry. He could take his time. Anyway, Melody supported him very much. He felt that Hannah was indeed good enough to be his woman.
“Hannah, find someone decent to act as your boyfriend next time,” Melody said.
Hannah was stunned. She was confused by what her mother said.
Fredrick also chuckled, and then he said to Melody, “Ms. Ranchy, I have invited a friend who is a big shot here by this opportunity today. Hope he can help you in the future.”
Melody was surprised, and she said, “Really? You’re so nice. You don’t only give Hannah a gift, but also introduce me to a big shot? Thank you so much.”
Fredrick said, “Don’t mention it. Maybe we will be a family in the future.”
Hannah just chuckled.
If she didn’t have to be concerned about Steven and her mother’s relationship, she wouldn’t bother to talk to Fredrick!
Steven didn’t care at all. He put his hand on Hannah’s thigh and rubbed it back and forth. Anyway, he was the only man who could touch it!
