Chapter 102 

There’s no hurry. There’s still time for you to eat,Old Mr. Smith said calmly

Jane Smith’s lips curled into a satisfied smile. When she raised her glass, she raised her eyebrows at Rachel Grey, who was sitting near and facing her. There was a hint of provocation in her eyes

In the past, Rachel had never attended Old Mr. Smith’s birthday banquet, so she naturally prepared a gift this year

Jane especially went to look at the item that Rachel had sent. The packaging of the box looked ordinary, and it was evident that it was not anything valuable

Rachel noticed Jane’s gaze. Rachel just calmly picked up the glass of water and took a sip

After the gathering ended, the servants presented Jane’s gifts. There were at least dozens 

of them

The relatives opened the carefully selected gifts one by one, placing them on the table for Old Mr. Smith to look at

As everyone knew, Old Mr. Smith loved paintings and art pieces, so most of the congratulatory gifts were to his liking

Surprisingly, Mr. Lewis from a powerful corporation even gifted a famous Baroque sculpture

Jane unwrapped the gift that Olivia Cruise had meticulously prepared. Grandpa, do you like this painting?Jane asked

Jane handed it over to Old Mr. Smith

Old Mr. Smith looked up at the painting and was overjoyed. This is… a painting from the Baroque period?” 

Then Rachel raised her head and smiled meaningfully

Olivia replied, Yes, Grandpa Smith. I specially visited a collector and bought this painting. from him. I hope you like it.” 

This painting is very valuable. What’s there not to like about this?Old Mr. Smith joked

He carefully held the painting. It was not exactly exquisite, but even its canvas seemed to be made of special material

Before the painting fell into the hands of others, it was monopolized by the nobles. They were a common gift among the nobles then, so commoners rarely came across them

Old Mr. Smith looked at it repeatedly and caressed it lovingly. Even though he did not like Olivia, he could not help but say sincerely, Thank you, Miss Cruise.” 

I’m glad you like it,Olivia said. She appeared to be generous, seemingly not asking for anything in return

However, other gifts paled in comparison to Olivia’s gift

Olivia has lost a lot of weight recently. She refused to say anything when I asked her. I see. she has been trying to think of a way to please Old Mr. Smith. What an affectionate child.” 

With Mrs. Smith praising Olivia, some also pitched in, Mrs. Smith is so lucky. Her son is outstanding, and even her future daughterinlaw is competent. How enviable.” 

If I get such a considerate daughterinlaw, I might thank the gods.” 

“Good girls like Oliva are hard to come by. Louis, you must hurry up. Otherwise, you’ll regret it when Olivia is sick of you.” 

In my opinion, Olivia and Louis are about the same age. The two of them grew up together. They should get engaged as soon as possible to carry on the Smith family bloodline.” 

Seeing that everyone was being increasingly straightforward, Olivia shyly leaned into Louis’s arms. However, she vaguely realized that he was a little distracted

Olivia leaned against Louis’s chest and followed his line of sight. Then she saw Rachel sitting not far away. Olivia secretly gritted her teeth, but there was still a gentle smile on her face. Louis, what’s wrong?” 

Louis snapped back to his senses and heard his second aunt say, Louis, Olivia is in love with you. You can’t let her down.” 

Louis tightened his grip on Olivia’s waist. He looked at the woman in his arms with a gentle smile. I definitely won’t.” 

Seeing this, the Smith family’s relatives revealed ambiguous smiles

As everyone spoke, they secretly sized up Rachel, who was sitting not far away, trying to spot any change in her expression

However, Rachel just sipped her tea as usual, as if she was uninvolved

Everyone could not help but purse their lips. They were amazed at how Rachel could pretend to be unfazed. They wanted to see how much longer she could put up the act

Then Jane said casually, Miss Grey, I haven’t seen your gift. Speaking of which, this is your first time attending Grandpa’s birthday banquet. I think your gift must be an extraordinary 

one!” 

As Jane spoke, she looked at Rachel with a smile on her face. There was a hint of schadenfreude in her eyes

It’s nothing special,Rachel said flatly.
