Bijoux Jewelries were known for their quality and rare stones, as well as, their exquisite, and one of a kind designs. Owning at least one set of this jaw-dropping jewelries was enough to ticket your way into the circles of elites.
I was carrying little Pluffy so he could enjoy himself with me as we gaped at the sparkly stones when a familiar voice disrupted our enjoyment.
“Tsk! What is she doing here?! So poor yet trying to act rich?!”
I peered over, and my brows met in one line. The one who spoke was my classmate, Lucia in her Gucci dress together with Julia in her Chanel summer outfit.
Sensing hostility towards me, little Pluffy growled, and they recoiled in fear. I smirked and resumed looking at the line of exquisite zodiac carved stones while petting little Pluffy to calm him down.
“Hey, don’t you think that guy is cute?” Julia elbowed Lucia and pointed a finger to where Zhane was.
Zhane was at the watch section for men, a few meters behind me. He was trying on a different wristwatch while Estela remained in the customization area on the other side.
The girls giggled and swayed in the section of set jewelry not far from me while throwing flirtatious glances at Zhane from time to time, hoping they would catch his attention.
The saleslady greeted the two with broad smiles. The two pointed out a set of jewelry and tried them on.
“I’m so excited about Sophia’s debut that I’ve already had my dress made.”
“Me too! I was like going to Italy tomorrow to fit my dress and just have to buy the latest set of jewelry at Bijoux. If you don’t buy now, all the good stuff will be taken since Sophia’s birthday is nearing.”
They licked their lips and flicked their attention to me.
“Miss, you should be more mindful of the store’s image. Letting poor people in will ruin your reputation.”
“Lucia, don’t be like that. You know that the common people can’t afford Bijoux, so they just contented to gape at them from the side.”
They snickered. The saleslady remained all smiles but secretly wiping away the sweat on her forehead.
As much as I wanted to ignore them, their high pitch tones irritated my ears. Even little Pluffy was on alert. He didn’t retract his large eyes on them even for a second like any moment now, he would leap and bit off their necks.
I went to where Zhane was.
“Let’s go,” I said.
Zhane looked at me and grinned. Then he flashed an endearing smile at the saleslady. “Sorry I have to go. I’ll buy next time.”
“That’s alright, come back anytime.” The saleslady smiled with a blushing face.
I rolled my eyes and walked to where Estella was, ignoring the frowns and glares from the two girls.
“Who is he? Is he her boyfriend?”
“No way! Didn’t you see the man’s outfit? A complete set of Armani! He wouldn’t go out with someone like her. A nobody.”
“What a waste of a cute guy.”
We were nearing Estela when Zhane whispered near my ear, “Why do they think that you’re poor. You don’t look poor.”
I shrugged. Most of the time, I didn’t wear branded clothes, not because I couldn’t afford them, but because I didn’t fancy them. I knew exactly what I wanted, even in clothes. Most of my dress were custom made for me by Eva Hart or bought from other fashion designers. Or if I was too lazy enough, I procured them on quality clothing shops in the mall.
“Let them. It’s more fun that way,” I said, fighting a yawn.
Zhane looked at me funny. “You know, if you just say that you and Cain are dating, no one will dare bully you.”
My bored face didn’t change.
“You may be right,” I said, “but I want my relationship, as much as possible, to remain private. Those girls are all bark and no bite. No use in exerting too much effort on them.”
Zhane shook his head and didn’t say anything more.
