Chapter 35 “But I don’t even know him.”
James smiled. “Hmm, I have no idea what’s all this about then.” “Who cares who he is? Let’s eat.Oh, wait… Let me take a few pictures and post them up. My followers would go crazy!” David took his phone out and started snapping pictures of everything. Soon, the food arrived.
Beautiful waitresses presented course after course.
Whether in terms of presentation, taste, or smell, the food served was extremely appetizing
The tables were soon full of delicious food. Once all the food arrived, a group of women started dancing on the mini stage in front of the room. They were so attractive that Benjamin and David could not take their eyes off them.
Throughout the meal, the Callahans were in a state of shock.
There was so much food in the Diamond Room that they could not finish. In fact, they barely ate a fraction of it.
“Oh no…” Gladys came to a realization after she finished eating, smacking herself in the forehead. “I heard that eating at the Diamond Room would cost at least a million dollars.”
“A million won’t cut it.” James pointed to a bottle of red wine David was opening “This bottle of wine alone costs three hundred and eighty thousand. We’ve had a few bottles, haven’t we? The wine alone would probably cost a million.”
“Huh?” David shuddered at what James said. Quickly, he stood up. “I-I didn’t open thein.”
As soon as Bryan left the room, he did some digging about the Black Dragon. He also asked his closest family members for pictures of the Black Dragon when he was made general.
Even though that was a secret, the Graysons were an upper-class family in the Capital. Thanks to their status, they still managed to get their hands on some photos. As soon as Bryan saw James, he shuddered involuntarily. He almost fainted in his office,
“Oh my God. Th-the Black Dragon is Thea Callahan’s husband!”
He dared not take it easy, sprinting to the Diamond Room at once.
Just then, someone knocked on the door. It was Bryan, who had a smile pasted on his face. “Thea, sir, madam, and everyone else here, is everything to your liking?”
The Callahans looked at each other. It was great when they were bragging outside, but now, they did not have the money to foot the bill.
Gladys did have some money, but it was her personal savings. She was not going to use it.
“Thea, have you finished?” Bryan bowed.
“Ah.” Thea was slow to respond. She nodded instinctively. “Y-yes. I’m done.”
Bryan produced a card studded with diamonds. With both hands, he presented it to Thea. “Thea, this is the diamond member card. Please accept.”
“No, I can’t…” Thea shot out of her seat and waved her hands. How could she accept?
Even though having The Gourmand’s diamond member card would do much to elevate her status, it was simply too expensive to dine here. This meal alone was going to cost them everything. Even with a member card, they still would not be able to afford it. Bryan bowed again, saying, “Thea, I think you must have misunderstood. This isn’t just a normal diamond card. This is a top-tier diamond card. With this card, you’ll enjoy a ten percent discount storewide. You’ll also get to enjoy three free meals every month. Three meals every month, completely free of charge.”
The other Callahans wore similar expressions. Ten percent storewide? Three free meals every month?
It was too good to be true. Thea finally came to her senses and asked, “Mister Grayson, we don’t even know each other. Why are you giving me the diamond member card?” Bryan glanced at James. James was looking at him as well. He shuddered involuntarily. Quickly, he said, “
It’s our fifth anniversary today and we’ve had a lucky draw. You happen to be the lucky winner! Please take the card. This meal is free of charge. Do visit The Gourmand often.”
“Anniversary? Lucky draw?” Thea was still in disbelief. Gladys almost burst into tears at the news. Quickly, she walked up to him and took the diamond card from him. “Mister Grayson, I’ll take it on behalf of Thea.”
Bryan happened to see James’ expression. He shuddered again. Coldly, he said,” We will only acknowledge Thea as the owner of this card.”
Gladys was so scared she hurriedly thrust the card into Thea’s hands.
“Jamie…” Thea looked at James.
He smiled. “Darling, how lucky are you? What a coincidence! You’re the lucky winner on their anniversary. Congratulations! Just take it.”
Thea finally took the card.
