His sudden warm breath assailed her senses, and Xuxu's body went limp against her will. She turned to look at him and saw that his face was merely inches away from hers. He had a shadow of a smile on his face which was alluring yet wicked.
When he saw Xuxu turning her face towards him, he inched even closer. "If you give me a kiss right now, I'll give you the rest of the money."
"It's alright," Xuxu declined him coldly and moved her gaze back towards the stage.
Yan Rusheng didn't lose his temper because of her attitude; instead, he became more shameless.
"How about I give you a kiss instead?" Xuxu dodged him the second he started moving closer to her. "We've already exchanged rings and went through the wedding ceremony when we were kids. Since we've already kissed each other back then, an extra kiss now wouldn't make a difference."
He knew that he'd done wrong.
The person who loved more than the other person in the relationship needed to be more tolerant and make more sacrifices. He had finally accepted the truth.
You still remember our wedding ceremony when we were still kids...
Xuxu's heart thumped wildly when he mentioned their childhood. She clenched her fists tightly, and her eyes seemed to shimmer with flickering rays of light.
That night, he had completely pushed her out from his world.
She should close her heart and world to him completely as well. So she shouldn't think, look, or miss him at all.
Xuxu's thoughts swirled silently into a mess, and it took her awhile before she finally calmed her heart down. Her eyes resumed its usual aloofness.
The jade bangle had reached 3.1 million yuan.
The two items added up to an approximate 5 million yuan. It was indeed far from her target.
The host concluded the bidding, and there was a round of applause. Xuxu stood up suddenly and went to the stage.
She walked up unhurriedly and stood before the audience to give a courteous bow.
"Earlier, I auctioned off two items, and all proceeds will go to Tiny Stars Orphanage. This was only possible because of the kindness and generosity shown by everyone here." Xuxu bowed again with gratitude. "Thank you for your support. I'm really grateful."
Her bow made all the Flourish & Prosper's partners rather panicky. This lady was the wife of President Yan, and everyone could tell how much he loved and doted on her just by seeing how he acted towards her earlier on.
Spending money to support her charity work was a kind of investment, and it would be totally worth it.
But she was now standing on stage to bow and thank them. What would happen if this made President Yan annoyed or displeased?
According to reliable sources, Young Master Yan was very protective towards his loved ones.
"Third Madam Yan, you're being too serious. For the sake of charity, everyone should do their part."
"I'm quite sorry that I didn't manage to bid for those two items earlier on. I'll donate 1 million yuan then!"
Those partners who didn't manage to bid for Xuxu's items began to outdo each other with their donations.
"I'll donate 1 million yuan as well!"
"I'll donate 600,000 yuan!"
"I'll donate 2 million yuan..."
Everyone started raising their voices, and it caused a commotion. But amidst the confusion, Xuxu was mentally recording the amounts they were shouting out. It had added up to more than 10 million yuan, and with the sum she had earned from her two items, she would get nearly 20 million yuan.
She needed another 10 million yuan to reach her target.
Her expression was filled with the utmost gratitude, and she kept bowing to the audience.
The shouting began to gradually die down.
Suddenly, a cold and serene voice sounded from the first row. "I'll donate 10 million yuan."
That person was Young Master Yan.
