“Ha! Are you saying that I’m calculative? Huh! Whatever!”
Without giving Xavier a chance to respond, Fabian immediately approached the resident. He patted her gently on the shoulder and said indifferently, “I want to buy this house. Since you are not happy with our price, you name your price then!”
Though Fabian’s tone was calm, he looked domineering indeed. His words set off a ripple of excitement within her.
What? I’m going to make a fortune! Yes! Should I ask for one million five hundred thousand? Wait a minute—is this too little? What about two million? Oh Gosh, I should ask for more! Alright, five million! This will be more than enough for me to live a happy life abroad for the rest of my life. Okay, that’s it!
The resident swallowed her saliva and looked at Fabian. When she was about to make her offer, Xavier, who was standing at the side, coughed. Then, she hesitated. Both of them come from similar backgrounds and are filthy rich! Of course, I’ll sell my house to the one who is willing to pay more! After all, who doesn’t love money?
“Oh, I’ve forgotten that Mr. Jackson is also interested to buy this house!” Fabian sneered.
Actually, instead of coaxing Hannah to get back together with him, he wanted to buy that house for a different purpose.
Fabian tried that tactic before. If he repeated it, Hannah would keep her distance from him. After all, she did not want to get back together with him.
By the time she realized it, she would not have any reaction toward him. In fact, Fabian just wanted to let Hannah’s protector move into the house so that he could afford her better protection.
Therefore, it did not matter if he could buy the house. Since Xavier wanted to get involved, Fabian did not mind letting him suffer a loss.
“Haha, what a coincidence! It happens that I want to buy this house as well. Why don’t we have a fair competition? The one who offers the highest price will get it!” Xavier smiled faintly.
He despised Fabian for what he had done. How dare he approach the owner directly! He’s so arrogant and doesn’t respect me at all, despite having the same standing. How could he say that to me? Don’t we want to buy the house for the same purpose?
Hmph! Let’s compete and see if Jackson Group or Phoenix Group will win!
It’s not about the value of this house, but it’s all about dignity! Whoever pulls out will be despised for being a coward!
Indeed, he was not as bold as Fabian.
Meanwhile, the resident happily nodded her head upon hearing the suggestion put forward by Xavier. She knew if the two competed, she would benefit from it.
“Haha! Fair competition? Forget about it! Don’t you remember you were badly defeated in our last competition? I don’t want it to happen again!” Fabian replied with a subtle smile.
His words stabbed Xavier to the heart like a sharp blade.
“Well, you can have the house then!” After Fabian finished his words, he snapped his fingers and was about to leave.
He said that purposely to provoke Xavier, knowing that the latter was also from a prominent family and could not tolerate such a humiliation.
Immediately, spasms of irritation crossed Xavier’s face. He glared at Fabian while trying to suppress his anger. “You don’t have to do that! Jackson Group can definitely afford such a small house!”
“Oh well! You can pay my offer price!” Fabian turned and walked away, leaving Xavier behind. It left him no choice but to clench his teeth angrily.
On the other hand, the resident was upset. Sigh! Why don’t they compete? I don’t even know how much Jackson Group offer will!
