A Man Like None Other - Season 4 Episode 57
However, Lily didn’t take too kindly to his response. “What the hell is with that response of yours, Oliver? Just tell him that I’m not your girlfriend! With how stingy your parents are, you can’t even afford to have a normal girlfriend, let alone someone like me!”
Although Oliver was incredibly embarrassed by what she said, there was nothing he could say in retaliation at all.
Having finally understood why Oliver’s parents refused to give him any money, Jared flashed him a helpless smile in response.
The three of them soon arrived outside Phoenix Bar. As the parking lot in front of the bar was filled with fancy cars, Oliver had to park his used BMW in a corner far away.
“This is the best bar in Summerbank, Jared. Come on, let’s go in there and have some fun!” Oliver said excitedly after parking the car.
“I think it’d be better if you address me as Mr. Chance instead,” Jared reminded him as he felt Oliver was acting a little too close to him.
“Oh, please! Why do you have to be so uptight about these things? You’re going to be my brother-in- law sooner or later anyway, so what’s wrong with me treating you like family in advance? Come on, let’s go inside!”
Oliver dismissed Jared’s reminder and began dragging him into the bar.
“Hey, Oliver, did you hit the jackpot or something? You don’t look like you can afford to party here,” Lily asked playfully after they entered the bar.
“I didn’t, but my brother-in-law did! Guess what? He has over ten million in his bank account! I saw it today!” Oliver whispered into Lily’s ear, and the way she looked at Jared changed instantly.
Although Oliver had lowered his voice significantly, Jared could clearly hear what he said. D*mn it… I wouldn’t have shown it to him if I knew he’d go running his mouth like this!
After finding a place to sit down, Oliver ordered two bottles of Rémy Martin cognac right away without any hesitation. A single bottle could cost up to hundreds of thousands, but Oliver wasn’t afraid as he had Jared around to foot the bill.
Lily, on the other hand, wasted no time cozying up to Jared after finding out how rich he was. “So, Mr. Chance… Is this your first time being in a place like this? I’m here with you, so you don’t have to be nervous. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me…” she said coquettishly while rubbing her body against his.
Feeling uncomfortable from the way Lily was running her hands all over him, Jared frowned and moved his body away from her.
“Hey, Lily! I told you that he’s my brother-in-law! Besides, I’m paying you to keep me company tonight! Now, get your a*s over here!” Oliver shouted angrily when he saw what she was doing.
“Pfft! You’re only paying me five thousand per hour, you cheapskate! You know what? You can keep your money! I’m going to entertain whoever I like!”
Lily simply rolled her eyes at him and proceeded to ignore him after saying that.
Jared is just a bumpkin who somehow made himself a fortune without knowing how to spend his money properly. That’s probably why he’s acting all awkward after coming to a place like this! Big fish
like these are the easiest prey! Once you get them hooked, you can easily suck them dry! Screw Oliver! I’m going to stick to Jared tonight!
Oliver was so angry that he began downing glass after glass when the drinks were served up.
A group of rich young men happened to pass them by moments later.
“Oh? Mr. Grange? Since when were you able to afford to drink Rémy Martin in a place like this?” one of them asked in surprise when he saw Oliver.
Oliver shot the guy a glance and said in displeasure, “That’s none of your business, Thomas. Leave me alone.”
He was already in a bad mood after what Lily did to him, so hearing Thomas’ question agitated him even further.
Instead of just walking away, Thomas burst out laughing and asked, “I’m surprised you dare talk to me like this, Mr. Grange! Did you finally grow a pair?”
