Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 151
Everyone was watching Adam at this time. He hesitated for a moment before he finally decided that reason defeated impulse.
He said in a furious manner, “I give up!”
“What a shame!”
“Such an embarrassment!”
Everyone continued scolding and making fun of Adam as they laughed at him. Adam was left embarrassed and he did not know where else to hide his face.
He regretted his actions. He regretted coming out today. Otherwise, he would not have been so embarrassed.
Adam was very angry as he felt very embarrassed at this time. After a short while, Adam turned around and he was even angrier when he saw Charlie laughing at him.
At this time, he could not stop himself from rushing over to Charlie immediately.
“The one with the last name Wade! Are you doing this on purpose?”
Charlie picked up the glass of wine from the table before he took a sip and said, “No one forced you to bid against me. You wanted to bid against me, so why are you mad at me now?”
Jasmine also spoke up in a cold manner, “Mr. Quinton, the rules of auction have
always been this way. If you cannot afford to place a bid, then you should not be here at all.”
Adam gritted his teeth in anger but he did not dare to offend Jasmine.
“Just you wait!” Adam yelled as he pointed his finger at Charlie before returning to his own seat.
Charlie could only shake his head as he looked at Adam. It must have been difficult for the Quinton family to have a family member like Adam.
After that, Charlie swiped his black card once again as he paid for the jade under everyone’s watchful eyes.
Anyway, this was Graham’s money. Therefore, Charlie did not feel any pain at all.
Charlie could not help but wonder what Graham would do if he finds out that Adam was the reason why he had to spend so much money in the end.
He would probably beat Adam up again.
That would be really interesting…
About an hour later, the auction was approaching its end.
During this period of time, Adam did not bid for any other item because he was probably afraid that Charlie would outbid him again.
At this time, several helpers struggled to push a trolley up on stage. It seemed as though there was a huge item inside the trolley.
Charlie held his breath as he looked at the stage.
He could feel a strong and mysterious aura!
At this time, Mr. Yaleman, who was sitting on the next table, was also staring directly at the trolley.
So, this was the final treasure!
However, as soon as Finn Baxendale unveiled the curtain covering the treasure, everyone in the auction hall sighed in disappointment.
It turned out that there was a big, tattered reef with seaweed and dried seashells attached to it placed inside the trolley.
At this time, there were a lot of private discussions going on below the stage. No one could understand why Treasure Pavilion would actually treat this broken stone as the finale of the auction.
Finn Baxendale took this opportunity to provide the crowd with an explanation.
“Everyone, please stay calm! This is the final item up for auction tonight!”
“This clam had been naturally generated on the seafloor. Experts have already identified that this shellfish is actually hundreds of years old and it has been immersed into the seafloor for more than thousands of years after its death. The shell has a natural ” symbol on it and it is definitely a unique, one of a kind treasure!”
After he was done speaking, he asked the assistant to wipe the coral reef for the audience.
Sure enough, the exposed palm-sized area was actually a transparent golden red color like amber and the pattern on the clam was really beautiful.
Everyone could not help from gasping when they saw it.
The price of clams was usually measured in grams internationally, ranging from thirty thousand dollars to fifty thousand dollars, with their lifespans usually between twenty to a hundred years. However, this clam was already more than a few hundred years old. It was not easy to find any other treasures like this.
Moreover, what made it even rarer was the fact that it had laid on the seabed for over thousands of years. Its golden red and transparent color and natural pattern on its shell made it a top treasure among all clams!
The starting price for this item was nine million dollars.
