Cordy did not turn to look, since John was basically one of the hosts for tonight’s
charity ball—it would be unacceptable if he did not contribute.
“1.1 million.” Someone continued the bid.
“One and a half million,” John said, raising his auction paddle again.
Everyone could tell right then that John was going to get that ring, one way or another.
The crowd started to whisper among themselves, knowing then that they would never
Since they were not winning anyway, they would make more enemies if they made
Moreover, they were all shrewd people and had no reason to keep bidding at this
“One and a half million! Calling once, twice, three times! Sold!” The auctioneer
exclaimed excitedly. “Mr. Levine, please come on stage to accept delivery of your
charity auction item.”
John walked up and took it from the auctioneer, but just as he was about to turn and
leave, the auctioneer stopped him.
“A moment please, Mr. Levine. I heard that you had a surprise in store for Ms. Stuart?”
John glanced at Jessica below stage, who was staring at him expectantly.
In her corner, Cordy smiled. They were going to announce their wedding, weren’t
“Everyone, please give Ms. Stuart a round of applause as she comes on stage.” The
auctioneer quickly invited Jessica since John was not responding, knowing that John
would not play along easily even if he had never met John before.
Moreover, Jessica had already instructed him in private beforehand, and it was natural
he had to work according to the situation.
“I’ve been looking forward to this, Johnny.” Jessica was beaming as she walked up to
John’s side, denying him any chance of reneging.
There were so many people watching and this was her family’s turf-she was therefore
confident that John would play along.
Even so, John did not move for a long while, leaving the ballroom in an awkward
As everyone stared at them, pointing, gesturing and whispering, Jessica’s patience
was dwindling and her eyes turned teary.
It was a reminder that they were standing in front of many people, and that he must do
it even if it was only for appearance’s sake.
John came to his senses then and turned toward Jessica, taking out the ruby ring.
Everyone stared fixedly at them.
A proposal, right then and there?
“Jessica…” John said her name, quietly with his magnetic voice.
Jessica’s eyes welled with tears, as if overwhelmed with emotion.
“I…” John murmured, but he was suddenly silent again.
“I do!” Jessica exclaimed, and launched herself into his arms, tightly wrapping her
hands around his neck with unbound affection. “We’ve been together since we were
children, but it hasn’t been easy as everyone would think. We’ve gone through so
much, but thankfully stayed by each other’s side. You don’t have to say a thing-just as
you don’t owe me anything. Nothing matters as long as I’m with you.”
She always had a way out, didn’t she?
John could not propose for the longest time, but she easily made it happen. In fact,
she framed it as if he lacked the courage because he thought he owed her and
therefore was not brave enough to say it. That was why she told him on her own
volition that she did not care about their past and only desired their future.
The whole ballroom erupted into thunderous applause, and pink petals started to rain
down from overhead.
They certainly went all out with theatrics and romance.
After that loving embrace, John put the ruby ring on Jessica’s finger before
announcing their wedding day.
“I will marry Jessica on Valentine’s Day next year. Everyone present is welcomed to
our wedding reception.”
Cheers resound across the ballroom—it was certainly a harmonious scene.
“I guess you saw the proposal.”
Patrick was suddenly in front of Cordy, blocking her view of the stage.
