Liam picked up the teapot, filled the cups, and said calmly. “We rarely have quests at home, so I ordered some delicious dishes, someone will bring them over later. Since it’s still early, do you two ladies want to play a few more rounds?”
Mrs. Kelley seemed hesitant.
After all, she had already won more than a hundred thousand dollars, leaving now would guarantee a profit.
Mrs. Meyer agreed, “Sure, I’m on a winning streak today, don’t want to end it so soon.”
Seeing Mrs. Meyer say this, Mrs. Kelley couldn’t refuse.
Skyler looked at Liam, “I thought you didn’t like playing this?”
Liam raised his eyebrows, “I won’t play, you guys please continue, I just watch.”
Was he trying to see how she lost?
She knew Liam was definitely up to no good!
Liam sat gracefully beside her and said calmly. “If you win, take the money. If you lose, I’ll take care of it.”
Celeste looked at him suspiciously, was he really that kind-hearted?
But before she could think any further, the chips were redistributed, and a new round had begun.
Celeste’s luck was still terrible, and the cards in her hand were bad. She felt indecisive.
Mrs. Kelley got a bit impatient, “Celeste, hurry up and play your cards.
Celeste gritted her teeth and played her cards, thinking since he said the loss would be on him, she’d just play casually!
Mrs. Meyer picked up her cards, smiling, “My luck seems good this round.”
Celeste looked down at her cards, feeling unsure.
She turned to look at Liam, but he just took a sip of tea and said indifferently, “What are you looking at me for? Keep playing.”
Celeste then drew a new card.
Seeing Liam didn’t say anything, she threw the card away.
As Celeste was about to throw the second card, Liam suddenly said, ‘Are you sure you want to use that card?”
Celeste glared at him and threw another new card.
Celeste paused, suddenly realizing she had won.
Mrs. Kelley was shocked.
With a smooth start, Celeste continued to win, as if with divine help. Liam just stood behind her, watching her play cards. Whenever she hesitated, he would remind her how to play.
In no time, she won several games in a row, and her chips grew more and more.
On the other hand, Mrs. Kelley and Mrs. Meyer were not happy.
Especially Mrs. Kelley, who had lost all the money she had made playing cards in the first two hours.
And Liam and Celeste had no intention of stopping.
“Let’s call it a day,” Skyler said in a timely manner. “We’ve been playing for so long, let’s go to the living room, have some tea and take a break.”
Mrs. Kelley breathed a sigh of relief, but as she was about to get up, Liam said casually, “Mrs. Kelley, let’s settle the chips.”
Mrs. Kelley’s face stiffened. She wasn’t unwilling to pay, but she felt uncomfortable with Liam asking directly.
Skyler frowned, “Let’s talk about it later at the party. Let everyone rest and have some tea first.”
Liam said indifferently. “We still need to count the chips in front of everyone. If there’s a mistake or omission, it’ll be unclear later.”
Mrs. Kelley was furious, ‘Fine! Let’s count them now, and I’ll transfer the money to you immediately, so people won’t think I can’t afford
