Mr. Sanderson's Life At The Top
Chapter 10 A Stunning Gift Box
"I knew a loser like Trevor would fail to win Corrie's favor. I mean, she's the prettiest of all!". "What a loser!". Seeing the crowd burst into laughter, Trevor's pale face turned livid with rage. Did he deserve to be humiliated just because he was poor?. Anger boiled within him, and if it weren't for Bessie, he would have left the place immediately. Unfortunately for him, no one cared about his feelings. Noticing the angry look in their coach's eyes, Bernard knew that she was at her limit. "Everyone, don't laugh at this poor loser anymore. Miss Taylor's birthday must not be ruined. We all bought gifts for her. How about we take them out? Let’s see which one she loves the most. Bernard gathered everyone's attention and was about to open his gift box with a sense of pride in his heart. The next moment, a delicate perfume bottle was placed on the table. "Bessie, here's my gift for you, Hermes perfume!". "Wow, what a beautiful bottle of perfume! It must be quite expensive, right?". "Bernard is so rich. The gift he bought must cost a lot!". "This is a new limited edition Herm es perfume. A single bottle of it co sts more than ten thousand dollars!"
“Wow! A perfume that's worth more tha n ten thousand dollars is something t hat a student can't afford so easily!” . Those beautiful gi rls looked at Berna rd with admiration. This man was too generous. Bessie had only heard that B ernard was a man who liked to flirt with girls everywhere. She had no idea t hat Bernard was su ch a generous man. Bessie couldn't hel p but have a deeper impression of him. "It's not that expensive. My dad is very fami liar with that regional manager of Hermes. It only cost me 7999 dollars. It’s very cheap!" . When Bernar d saw . the admiration in the girl's eyes, his compla cent smile grew bigger. He then glanced at Trevor and teased, "Trevo r, you must have bought a gift for Miss Tayl or, too, right? Why don't you show it to us?" . “I gave Miss Taylor the gift I bought fo r her as soon as I came. ” Trevor glanced at them and then looked at Bessie gently. "Miss Taylor, please take the gift out. Bessie said, "It’s not necessary. Don't com pare how valuable your gifts are. I like th em all equally, regardless of their worth. Upon hearing those words, Trevor's e xpression darkened
He could tell that Bessie was only doing it to stop him from feeling embarrassed in public. He was a poor boy, so th ere was no way for him t o afford expensive gifts. But things had changed, and Tr evor believed that no one's gif t could be as priceless as his. Trevor urged Bessie to take out his gift from her hand bag, and she finally did so. The entire ro om went silent for a moment. Bessie unwrappe d the package an d was surprised. The others in the room were stunned, too. "W ow !" . Bernar d excl aimed. "A Hermes box. Trevor 's gift is also from H ermes! A luxury item!" . "Trevor! Tell me, what dumpster did you pick up the box in? It must have taken a lot of time for you to find it, right?" . The girls all laughed at Trevor. Bessie even shook her he ad slightly. Corrie originally thought that Trevor, although poor , should be an honest man, and to be frank, Trevor w as still somewhat qualified to be an ordinary friend. But now, she despis ed Trevor. "Well, he took time and effort to br ing you this gift, right? So would i t hurt for us to take a look at it?" . Corrie pouted and snatched the gi ft box from her cousin before she opened it without any hesitation
