To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 26

Chapter 26 We Aren’t Close

Alec and Paul watched the drama unfold from the second floor.

“Seems like the woman who made you lose control has gotten into trouble. Aren’t you going to help her?” Paul smirked as he glanced at the man beside him.

“Help?” Alec sneered. He seemed to be enjoying the drama. “Why should I help her? We aren’t close anyway.”

“If that’s the case, why did you give her those 60-million-dollar earrings?” Paul chuckled.

Alec’s expression shifted. Then, he replied, “I’ve already explained this. I wanted to thank her for saving Faye.”

Paul didn’t argue with him. Only Alec himself would know the true reason. Soon, the appraiser that Mr. Nelson had contacted arrived. While waiting for the appraisal, the people whispered to one another. Faye was also waiting to watch the mayhem ensue.

In the crowd’s eyes, this was a fake painting. Jenny was just in denial. It didn’t take long before the appraisal report was out.

“Let’s see how you’re going to deny it now!” someone roared as he looked at the appraiser. “Mr. Jones, this painting is fake, right?”

Mr. Jones didn’t speak. He looked at Jenny, curious about this woman’s identity.

“Dr. Walter, what else do you have to say for yourself? The appraisal report is already out,” Faye couldn’t help but say. She didn’t understand why Jenny could be this calm.

Jenny shot her a glance as she answered calmly, “You’re being noisy.”

“You!” Faye got frustrated. Just as she was about to say something else, Jenny got up and walked up to Mr. Jones.

“Hello, Mr. Jones,” she greeted elegantly with a smile.

Mr. Jones nodded before turning to the audience. “After finishing my appraisal, I conclude that this painting is authentic.”

In an instant, the dining hall was filled with sounds of exclamation. Everybody was in disbelief.
