Marrying the Ugly Heir for Truth and Wealth Chapter 16
Christina changed her clothes and wore a mask, only revealing her clear and bright eyes.
Following the host’s introduction on the stage, a loud and enthusiastic wave of cheers echoed in the bar. Everyone fixed their gazes in the same direction.
On the raised stage platform, Christina’s figure was rising slowly. She stood in the center of the stage, looking radiant and mesmerizing.
The light shone behind her gorgeous figure, showcasing her smooth and plump curves. Even if she was just standing there quietly, her silhouette alone could cause the surrounding world to fade.
Those sparkling and enchanting eyes were unforgettable, and her slender body was petite and beautiful.
When the music sounded, Christina moved her body according to muscle memory and performed a dance she had learned back then.
A piece of fast-tempo music was playing in the background, but Christina performed a graceful classical dance instead.
The audience was used to watching all sorts of sexy dances, so they found the sudden change of style interesting.
Christina’s delicate figure was flexible. The people watching her couldn’t take their eyes off her.
After a while, the music stopped, and the host went on the stage. “Next up, we have Peacock’s solo dance stage. The starting bid is five thousand. Whoever bids the highest can enjoy Peacock’s dance all to themselves. This is your only chance!”
Christina looked across the audience below the stage. Suddenly, her eyes widened slightly as she fixed her gaze on a VIP table. She felt her heart clench. Isn’t that Brayden, the person I’ve been having a crush on for many years? Why is he here?
Brayden Griffin was dressed in a white suit and had auburn hair. He was elegant and looked out of place in the bar.
Beside him sat a fashionably dressed woman who had long hair. She was none other than Christina’s best friend, Freya Larson.
While they were conversing, Freya deliberately leaned closer to Brayden, causing them to seem intimate.
Just when Christina was still caught in a daze, her gaze met Freya’s.
In that instant, Freya recognized Christina.
Freya sneered in her heart and she pretended to be shocked. “Brayden, look. Doesn’t the dancer look a lot like Christina?”
Upon hearing a familiar name, Brayden raised his head and looked in the direction of the stage, his eyes meeting her clear, alluring ones.
He was certain that she was Christina. “What is Christina doing here?” she muttered in confusion.
Taking in the way Brayden was looking at Christina, Freya could feel a surge of jealousy coursing through her. She clenched her fists and looked upset.
Freya had a crush on Brayden, yet Brayden liked Christina instead.
The reason Freya had invited Brayden to hang out at this bar was that she knew Christina worked as a server there. Freya just wanted to expose Christina for working at a nightclub to sabotage her image in Brayden’s mind.
After failing to set her up last time, I can’t believe she’s doing something so cheap this time! She’s simply digging her own grave!
With a frown on her face, Freya pretended to feel sorry for her best friend as she said, “Why would Christina become a dancer at a bar? She’s a good girl. Does she have no sense of self-respect?”
Brayden merely stared at the slim figure while gritting his teeth.
Seeing that he was silent, Freya added, “Brayden, don’t look down on Christina. I’m sure she’s just doing this because her family is going through a hard time.”
Brayden was aware that Christina was the daughter of the Steele family. However, he wasn’t clear about her relationship with her family.
Freya had caused a bigger misunderstanding instead of defending Christina.
Brayden didn’t listen to any of Freya’s words. He picked up the sign on the table and raised it to bid with the others.
