A Beauty With Multiple Masks Chapter 437

Mason stiffened, then turned around slowly. He gave a dry chuckle and said, “I’m going to the library. I’m thinking of furthering my studies so that I’ll be a good match for Yvette.”

“Is that so?” Edmund drawled. He smiled and continued, “Don’t push yourself too hard then, and don’t stay out too late.”

“All right.” Mason forced a smile before leaving hurriedly.

As soon as Mason had his back turned, Edmund’s amiable smile and demeanor disappeared. His expression turned icy cold.

He fished out his phone and called Russell immediately. “You were right, Mr. Actonward. He left not long after you did.”

On the other end of the line, Russell sneered. “Is someone trailing him? Good. Send me his location. I’ll go and see what he’s up to.”

“Right away,” Edmund replied.

About half an hour later, Mason arrived in front of a jewelry store.

He cast a furtive glance around to make sure that no one was watching him before going in.

When the store’s owner saw him, he pushed his glasses up his nose and asked, “Are you here to buy or pawn


“Are you the owner?” Mason asked.

The man nodded. “That’s right. Are you here to pawn something?”

“I have something very valuable with me. Could you take a look and see how much it’s worth to pawn?” As Mason spoke, he opened his backpack and carefully took out a jade statue as large as his palm.

The store owner looked excited as soon as he caught a glimpse of the statue.

“Y-You want to pawn that?” he asked in surprise.

Mason placed the jade statue in front of the man. “Go ahead and take a look. How much is this worth?”

The owner took out a special light used to appraise gemstones. As he checked the jade statue, he would make remarks about the material, color, and clarity.

Mason did not understand a word the man said. He asked again, “Tell me, how much is it worth?”

The owner fell into deep thought. A rough piece of jade with such quality and color could go for millions, let alone one with such masterful craftsmanship.

He raised his head and cast a glance at Mason. Seeing that Mason did not look like someone particularly well off, he asked warily, “Where did you get this? I don’t

accept pieces with unknown origins.”

Mason swallowed hard before replying, “Don’t worry. I took it from my house. I’m pawning it because my wife is ill and needs a large sum of money for her treatment. I’ll come back for it in the future when I have the money.”

The man was still doubtful.

I’m sure that there’s more to it than he lets on. However, it doesn’t make sense for me to turn down a chance to make money. Moreover, it’s clear he’s young and naive. I can quote him a much lower price than what it’s actually worth.

With that thought in mind, the man said, “Three million. No more than that. Although it has a beautiful color, the craftsmanship isn’t that good. If I were to try and sell it, I’m afraid.”

Without waiting for the man to come up with an excuse, Mason nodded. “All right. Three million it is. Please transfer the money to my account immediately.”

The owner looked at him, thrilled. I can sell this piece for tens of millions, but he agreed to pawn it for three million. If he’s not a fool, then he must’ve stolen it. Well, it doesn’t matter. I have my ways to sell it off.

“Wait right here! I’ll make some calls to our other branches and get the money. I’ll transfer it to you soon!” the owner said excitedly.

Just as he stepped out of the store to make the calls, he saw more than ten men dressed in black suits standing in front of him.
