Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 152
The crowd started bidding and very soon, the price of the clam increased to twelve million dollars.
Many people stopped bidding as soon as the price exceeded their limit. However, the people who knew the value of the clam continued bidding for it.
At this time, Jack suddenly stood up before he said, “I bid fifteen million dollars for it!”
After that, he turned around before he bowed and said, “Dear friends, the reason why I am here at the auction today is because of this clam. Therefore, I hope everyone will give up on bidding for this item so I can bring it home with me today. I will give everyone here today a peace talisman as a token of my gratitude.”
Most of the guests who were present today were bosses and businessmen who knew of Jack’s reputation. No one dared to offend him.
If he was unhappy, he could probably do something that would cost the other party his entire fortune or family!
Besides that, he would also be giving out a peace talisman worth two hundred thousand dollars to all the guests here today. Therefore, even though many of the guests felt unhappy, they chose to bear with it as it seemed as though their trip here was not in vain.
At this time, Finn had a calm expression on his face even though he was very unhappy.
Initially, the rules of an auction was that the item would always go to the highest bidder but it seems as though Jack was trying to break the rules.
If he could really pay fifteen million dollars for the clam, earning less money would not be a big deal for Finn but if this news got around, it would definitely affect the reputation of Treasure Pavilion. Moreover, this would also be very damaging to the auction industry.
However, Finn knew that Jack was very skilled and powerful. Therefore, it would not be wise to offend him. It seemed as though he could only give up and hand the clam over to him.
Jack was initially very arrogant but at this time, he could not hold back his excitement at all.
He had flown all the way to Aurous Hill just to obtain this treasure and even though there were several setbacks, he finally got what he wanted!
Why would fifteen million dollars matter to him?
As long as this clam belonged to him, he would definitely make a fortune!
Moreover, everyone was silent at this time as it seemed like no one else dared to bid against him.
He was indeed the master!
Who would not give up anything for the great and reputable Mr. Yaleman?
It seemed as though he had gotten a good deal for just fifteen million dollars!
At this time, a faint voice suddenly sounded again.
“I will pay thirty million dollars for it!”
As soon as this voice rang out, everyone was quiet again.
However, everyone was staring at the bidder in shock.
It was him again!
It was the young man who was dressed in ordinary and casual clothing. At first glance, there was nothing extraordinary about him at all. However, he won in two impressive bids against Adam.
Moreover, he simply swiped his black card and paid for his purchases on the spot. He was really awesome.
However, no one would have expected him to have the courage to challenge Jack.
As soon as Jack saw Charlie’s face, he could not help but glare at him.
At this time, Adam stood up as he rubbed his eyes vigorously as he was clearly in shock.
Jasmine also did not expect Charlie to make an offer against Jack.
She knew that Charlie was very skilled and had an amazing ability to appraise antiques. However, she never knew that Charlie had so much assets and money.
In fact, Jasmine did not dare to offend Jack but she could not help but wonder why Charlie was so courageous. Wasn’t he afraid that Jack would take revenge against him?
Jacob was the first person to regain his senses and he quickly tugged at Charlie’s sleeves before he said, “Charlie, what are you doing? Sit down!”
“Dad, I know what I am doing.”
Charlie turned around and raised his head with a calm expression on his face.
“Charlie, what are you trying to do? Why are you snatching Mr. Yaleman’s belongings?” Adam took the initiative to question Charlie in a cold manner.
At this time, Charlie smiled before he replied, “This is an auction. Everyone has the right to bid for the item. What do you mean when you say I am snatching something belonging to him? Don’t you understand the rules of an auction?”
After he was done speaking, Charlie sneered before he continued, “You…you should just sit there and keep your mouth shut. Aren’t you ashamed after embarrassing yourself twice in a day?”
Adam felt embarrassed as soon as he heard Charlie’s words. Therefore, he sat down immediately without even retaliating at all.
Jack had a gloomy expression on his face as he continued glaring at Charlie. “It’s you again! Do you know who I am and where I came from? I am Jack Yaleman! You dare snatch something belonging to me?”
Charlie sneered before he asked, “I don’t care who you are but I am going to outbid you today! What are you going to do about that?”
