My Doctor Son-in-law, Clarence - Chapter 194 - Did You Steal This Car?
Everyone was confused as they listened to the rumbling of the engine from the Lamborghini Veneno.
Linda exclaimed, “H-how is this possible? Clarence is just a disciple from some clinic, and he only makes three to four thousand dollars a month. How can he afford a luxury car? And was that really a Lamborghini Veneno?”
Lucy shook her head decisively. “He must have rented it. The Lamborghini Veneno is a limited edition car, and there are only three in this country. One in Beth City, one in Auma Island, and one in Port City. There are none in Mediterranean City.
“He must have rented this car and changed its exterior into one of a Lamborghini Veneno. It has to be a fake!”
A woman crossed her arms across her chest. “I’ve been watching that kid since he walked into the room. He’s wearing clothes sold at roadside stalls, and his outfit was only worth 300 to 400 dollars in total.”
A woman in a tank top next to her nodded. “Yeah, I remember very clearly that the shoes on his feet could be bought with just 200 bucks. Can someone like that afford a Lamborghini Veneno, which costs over 100 million?
“What a joke! You can’t buy that car just because you want to, either. You have to have status, identity, and power, and you need all three. Parvenus wouldn’t be able to buy it, even if they had the money.”
The others agreed and nodded.
Greg was in disbelief.
Even though it had been far away, the car’s exterior, textures, shape, and even the gloss of its paint under the streetlights had been the same as its pictures online.
Was the car a fake?
Away from the crowd, Clarence was now driving his Lamborghini Veneno along the coast.
“This feels nice. The wind is so warm…”
Hailey rolled down the window and yelled outside as she leaned against the edge of the car’s window frame. She let the sea breeze brush against her face.
Clarence purposely slowed down the car and let her enjoy the sea breeze at night.
When some of the beautiful women who were walking along the road at night saw the Lamborghini Veneno, their eyes lit up. They all fantasized about meeting the owner of the car.
However, when they saw Hailey in the passenger’s seat, they were ashamed that they could never be her.
Hailey had only drawn on her eyebrows today. Despite the lack of makeup, her milky skin looked healthy. She raised her makeup-free face to the sky, a bare-faced beauty. Haily was able to defeat any influencer with her natural beauty.
Clarence could only see her side profile from his seat.
He could also see the fine hair by her ear clearly.
She was young and merry.
Hailey pulled her head back from the window and leaned back against her chair. “I don’t know what I would’ve done if not for you being here today. It was so satisfying watching you beat Mr. Dover up. I owe you one. Tell me, what do you want?
“Do you want me to introduce a girlfriend to you, or do you need something else?” Hailey looked at Clarence, a teasing expression on her face.
She was almost sober now.
Clarence smiled and shook his head. “No need. We’re all from the orphanage, so it’s only right to help each other out.”
Hailey was taken aback. “It’s only right to help each other out…”
She repeated what Clarence had said just now.
Just now, everyone had been cold toward her. Lucy had even cut ties with her and beat her while she was already down.
Clarence’s words contrasted what those people had done just now.
Haily took a deep breath. “Thank you, Clary. In the future, after I finally make a name for myself in Mediterranean City and finally become a billionaire, I’ll watch over you.”
Hailey waved her fists in the air.
Clarence said, “Thank you, Miss Lester.”
Hailey laughed. “If either one of us gets rich one day…”
Clarence continued, “We won’t forget each other.”
The two of them looked at each other and began laughing. Hailey was felt less stressed now.
Clarence parked the car at the parking lot by the beach, and the two of them got out to take a walk.
Suddenly, a surprised voice was heard. “Lamborghini Veneno? Are you for real?”
Clarence and Hailey lifted their heads to look for the source of the sound. They saw a gang of youngsters dressed in stylish clothes standing next to the car. They looked surprised and shocked.
One of the young men in the group rudely asked, “Kid, is this yours?”
A girl in the prime of her youth looked arrogant as she stood at one end of the group. “Did you steal it, or did you rent it?”
She held her head up high, looking down on everyone.
The young man said as if he was ordering Clarence, “I’m asking you a question. Did you hear me?”
Clarence was amused, “Do I have to answer just because you’ve asked me a question? Am I your father or your mother? Why should I have to endure your terrible temper?”
The young man’s face fell. “What did you say? Say that again, you punk!”
He undid a button on his shirt and showed everyone his magnificent pecs. He looked extremely hostile.
His friends by the side had looks of sadistic pleasure on their faces.
Clarence laughed. He shook his head. He did not plan to entertain the youngsters any longer. “Hailey, let’s continue our walk.”
Hailey and Clarence turned around and walked toward the beach.
“F*ck!” the young man suddenly roared.
His voice was laced with anger and humiliation. He lifted his fist to punch Clarence.
He had taken part in kickboxing before, and he had even trained with the national champion. Normal people were no match for him.
The young man planned to smash Clarence’s teeth to teach him a lesson.
However, who could have guessed that when he pounced at Clarence, Clarence pulled Hailey aside and dodged him easily.
The young man grabbed nothing, falling flat and getting sand all over his face. He looked very battered.
The young man’s friends panicked.
Clarence patted his sleeve. “Don’t try to take action against me if you don’t have the kind of skill necessary.”
After saying that, he continued to walk toward the beach with Hailey.
The young man was so ashamed he wanted to die. His expression was contorted and his face grew red as he watched as Clarence and Hailey walk away from him.
“Damn it! Just wait, you punk!” He clenched his fists and stared at Clarence’s back.
The minor scene did not affect Clarence and Hailey too much.
They continued to walk along the beach.
With the aid of the alcohol she had left in her, Hailey told Clarence of the hardship she had suffered while working overseas.
Clarence was a good listener. He could laugh and cry with Hailey.
Toward the end of their walk, the beach was almost empty. Hailey slowly got up. “Clary, thank you for staying with me as I babbled non-stop. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to tell someone what’s in my heart. I’m so happy.”
She sighed. “However, I still have to face the reality of things. If Mediterranean City is not good to me, I might have to go overseas again.”
She had offended Greg, so she might not be able to stay in the field she had talents for in Mediterranean City anymore.
Clarence smiled. “If you believe me, you should still go to Glorious tomorrow for the interview. I know a shareholder in Glorious, and with his help, you’ll be able to get in.
“Of course, your skills are good, so you should get into Glorious. You can’t give up on your future just because of Greg.”
Hailey looked at Clarence in confusion. “Really? Do you really have a way to get me into Glorious Entertainment?
