Mr. Sanderson's Life At The Top
Chapter 11 This Perfume Must Be A Fake
All of a sudden, everyone in the room gasped. They were indeed surprised when they saw how marvelous Bernard's gift was, but the moment they saw Trevor's gift, they were too stunned to speak. His gift was also a bottle of perfume. It was a diamond-shaped bottle that looked like it was made out of the best quality amethyst. It was so bright and glimmering like it had a myriad of stars inside it. In comparison to Trevor's gift, Bernard's looked like rubbish. "It is the most exquisite Hermes perfume. There are only two hundred bottles of this limited edition perfume in the whole world. It was developed by the famous perfume master Robert. It is worth three hundred thousand dollars!". A girl with short hair took a photo of the perfume bottle before she looked it up online and read about it loudly. “Three hundred thousand dollars? How could that be possible?”. Everyone was shocked. If a boy had bought such a beautiful, expensive bottle of perfume for a girl, then he could certainly hope to spend several memorable nights with her. "No way!". All of a sudden, something occurred to Bernard, and with an evil smile, he retorted, "Right! I am sure it is a fake! Trevor probably dug the bottle out of a dumpster and filled it with some cheap perfume!". It was because of Trevo r's stereotype that ever yone began to doubt him. "You're right! How could someone l ike him afford such an expensive g ift? It must certainly be a fake!"
"I agree! He even wished to stretch the money that he earned from us. How dare h e show so much generosity?" someone said. "Yeah, I am pretty sure tha t the cheap perfume he used only costs a dozen dollars!" . None of their wor ds affected Bessie 's opinion at all. She never really cared about the cost of their gifts, so she picked up the perfume bottle and packed it up again. She chuckled and said sweetly, "Well, even if it is worth only a dozen dollars, I am still very hap py. At least, it is a very beautiful bottle of per . fume! Thank you for the thoug htful and wonderful gift, Tre vor. You are so considerate!" . "It's all fake! He tried to pretend to be rich, but we all saw right through him. At first, Corrie felt a little regretful for rej ecting Trevor, but after listening to what Berna rd said, she felt more disdainful towards Trevor. Several basketball team members also saw what was going on, and they laughed sar castically to ease their shocked hearts. Trevor frowned and cast a r esentful glance at all the people who were mocking him. No matter how much money he spent on the gift, they were only going to mock him and label it as a fake. "Miss Taylor, happy birthday to you. Please e xcuse me; I have something that I need to tak e care of at home, so I will be leaving now. Trevor said goodbye as he stood up. He was bored a nd tired of all their insults
Bessie coul dn't stand it anymore. She said, "Bernard, you can’t bully Trevor jus t because he is a poor. Bernard responded, "He deserved it. He pretended to be rich and bought a fake Hermes perfume to please you. This poor bastard really knows how to pick up a girl!" . As soon as Trevo r left the hotel , his phone rang. "Hello, Da d. What's t he matter?" . "Trevor, I have decided to give you the Willard M anor as a birthday gift. Upon hearing his fath er's words, Trevor was stunned for a moment. Since he had lived in Jork for many years, how c ould he not know that the Willard Manor was one of the best and most famous resorts in the city? . It should be worth at least three hund red million dollars！ . Many celebrities and businessmen would o ften show off that they had access to th e manor, and it was extremely expensive! . For a poor student like him, the place seemed like a dream. "Don't you think th at your gift is a li ttle too expensive?" . Trevor found it hard to accept it. His father always sho cked him with such news, and he felt like he would colla pse from a heart attack if his father continued to do so
