504 Truly His Father

    A complete silence crept over the entire villa.

    Everyone's attention was on the clock and Pei Yutang.

    No one had ever heard of anyone giving a clock as a gift.

    "Brilliant!"

    Qi Shaoyuan snapped out of his daze and gave Pei Yutang a thumbs-up.

    Pei Yutang felt the hairs on his body rising as his mind went blank.

    Why was the gift a clock?

    Who would give someone a clock?

    "Is... Is this a mistake?" Pei Yutang asked Lin Yan softly.

    Lin Yan shook her head. "Nope. It's correct."

    "Then... Why is the gift a clock? Didn't we agree that the gift had to be extravagant, significant, and huge?" Pei Yutang trembled slightly.

    Lin Yan frowned in response. "Isn't it extravagant?"

    Pei Yutang was speechless...

    Lin Yan added, "Isn't it significant?"

    Pei Yutang was speechless...

    Lin Yan asked once more, "Isn't it big enough?"

    Pei Yutang was speechless...

    "It's artistic as well!" Lin Yan grinned.

    "Sister-in-law... Are you playing a trick on me?" Pei Yutang was close to tears. He couldn't rebut her, as the gift met all his requirements. However, it was still a clock!

    Was he paying his respects to Yeva by giving her a clock?

    "Mr. Pei, what is the meaning of your gift?"

    Han Yixuan frowned in disapproval.

    First, Qi Shaoyuan had given Yeva a luxurious handbag, but they had discovered that it was an imitation. They couldn't say anything, as Qi Shaoyuan could have been duped.

    However, what was Pei Yutang trying to convey by giving her a clock?

    "Ahem..."

    Pei Yutang cleared his throat to hide his awkwardness. "Please don't judge this clock using an ordinary, worldly perspective. This clock... is actually a vintage clock... with a long history... It's also made of a valuable material... Sorry... I can't continue lying..."

    Pei Yutang wished that he could bang his head against the wall right now.

    "This is my gift to Madam Yeva." Suddenly, Lin Yan grinned as she interjected.

    Everyone's eyes flickered to Lin Yan from Pei Yutang swiftly.

    Pei Yutang was touched by Lin Yan's confession as he gazed intently at her.

    She was truly his father. That's why she was confessing!

    However, a second later, a realization hit him. She was the one who had bought the clock!

    "Sister, how could you do this? Even if you hate me, you shouldn't have treated our esteemed guest this way..." Lin Shuya looked at Lin Yan with an aggrieved expression.

    Deep down, Lin Shuya was gloating to herself.

    Lin Yan had dug her own grave.

    She had openly challenged Yeva and given her a clock as a gift. Given Yeva's influence and fame, this was akin to suicide.

    As a host, she just needed to be impartial and courteous.

    Han Yixuan's eyes were glinting maliciously. "Lin Yan, you... you are too much!"

    "You're such a vicious woman!" Qi Shaoyuan pointed at Lin Yan and pretended to bellow at her. "Boss didn't accept your challenge, so you now want her dead. If you have the guts, you should challenge her to a race! Whoever loses the race will have to swallow the clock!"

    "I think it's a good idea!"

    Andrea surveyed Lin Yan coldly. "Who do you think you are to challenge and taunt Yeva? We can give you the chance to compete with Yeva. If you lose, you need to eat the clock."

    Wei Xufeng frowned as he deliberated this. Although he disliked Lin Yan, he knew that these people would really make her swallow the clock if she lost.

    "She is not worthy of racing with Yeva. Make her leave." Wei Xufeng cut across as he shot an annoyed glance at Lin Yan.

    Lin Yan remained composed and indifferent. "Sure, I don't mind eating the clock if I lose."
