As they talked, more and more people noticed Caitlyn, who was enjoying the food, and Bokir, who was helping Caitlyn get food. Therefore, they got closer.
With so many guests gathered in a circle, looking at Molie and Caitlyn from a distance and sneering from time to time. They looked like they were watching animals in a zoo!
Molie had noticed what was going on around him but did not take it to heart. However, Caitlyn’s eating had slowed down.
“Brother Bokir, am I in trouble again?” Caitlyn asked timidly, biting the cutlery.
Molie shook his head and said with a smile, “No. What do you mean again? You’ve never given me any trouble.”
“But they’re all staring at us…” Caitlyn glanced warily at the surrounding onlooking guests, her expression full of timidity.
Molie frowned and turned around to glare at the onlooking guests. However, before he could speak, a middle-aged man with a female companion with seductive makeup and a sexy figure pushed his way through the crowd.
Seeing the middle-aged man’s looks, the other guests moved out of the way.
The man was a VIP from the Collins family. He was Jacob Collins, Old Master Collins’ third son.
Old Master Collins was so powerful in the army that no one in Joules Town dared to mess with him after he retired. Even a big shot in the government would feel honored to visit the Collins family. As a member of the Collins family and Old Master Collins’ youngest son, Jacob was a VIP!
According to information from Jeffrey, Molie knew about Jacob’s existence, of course.
Jacob was unlike his older brother, Hubert. He idled around all day, still messing around in his middle age. However, Molie did not recognize the woman beside him. He had never seen her before too. Molie was not surprised that Jacob would come to the party.
Tonight’s party was the most upscale in Joules Town. Joules Town’s business tycoons and government dignitaries were here. Victor, the head of Joules Town government, was here, and it was fitting that Jacob from the Collins family was here
Only a few influential people in high rankings did not come because their identity was inappropriate.
Jacob and his date had just pushed through the crowd. They let out a mocking laugh as soon as they saw Edgar.
“I was wondering who it was. It turns out to be you! Bokir, did you bring your girlfriend to such a fancy party just for food? What a typical nouveau riche!”
Caitlyn found the term “nouveau riche” harsh.
Molie did not take it seriously because he already knew what Joules Town’s elite families. thought of him. He established Lennon Group, successfully suppressed Billion Trees Group, and forced it to go bankrupt, becoming one of the major consortiums in Joules Town in one go.
Having deep pockets did not mean Molie was a member of high society.
In the eyes of those affluent families, Molie was a nouveau riche who only had wealth but not background. He happened to be the object of their sarcasm and hostility!
Besides that, Molie’s relationship with the Collins family was never the best.
William had invited Molie to a meal earlier and had been turned down, which must have upset the Collins family. It made sense that Jacob mocked him as soon as he saw him.
“I’m a nouveau riche, but a big shot of the Collins family like you isn’t necessarily better than I am,” Molie said indifferently, taking Caitlyn’s hand.
