Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 155
One hundred million dollars in exchange for a clam.
Everyone thought that Charlie was insane but Charlie did not care at all.
On the way back home, Charlie explained to Jacob that he need not worry because the one hundred million dollars that he spent at the auction had already been authorized by the Quinton family. Charlie was afraid that Jacob would be frightened and worried about what the Quinton family would do to them.
After arriving home, Charlie began studying the clam immediately since Claire had not returned home from work yet.
The size of the clam was about the size of a regular tyre. It had already been cleaned up and after a simple polishing work, it revealed a golden-red and transparent smooth shell.
Charlie managed to break it into several pieces without much effort at all.
He picked up one of the pieces as he began inspecting it.
As expected, there were three white beads attached to the back of the shell.
This was the Holy Pearl of the Ocean, one of the Seven Treasures of Buddhism, and since it was enclosed in this clam shell, it was even more spiritual.
Moreover, only shellfish with a life span of more than a hundred years would have any psychic and spiritual powers contained within them. They were formed by absorbing the essence of the ocean.
The Holy Pearl of the Ocean was one of the rarest and most spiritual treasures in the world that could not be easily found. This was the reason why Charlie had to purchase it no matter how much it cost.
Charlie was very satisfied because he had found a total of three Holy Pearls of the Ocean in the clam.
Charlie subsequently brought out the Lightning Stricken Dragon Blood Wood before he used reiki to print several of his handprints on the wood according to the Apocalyptic Book.
As soon as he printed his handprints on the wood, he could immediately feel a strong and thunderous breath emitting from the wood.
When the Holy Pearl of the Ocean encountered the thunderous breath, a golden light enclosed the holy pearl as it absorbed the thunderous breath continuously.
Charlie picked up the Holy Pearl of the Ocean before he began to chant in front of the artifact.
Very soon, the Holy Pearl of the Ocean gradually formed to perfection as it shone in his hand.
After that, Charlie took the purple pearl necklace that he had won at the auction that day and took some pearls from it before mixing it up with the clam shards and one of the Holy Pearl of the Ocean. Finally, he formed them into a bracelet.
The remaining Holy Pearl of the Ocean were also in top condition.
Charlie picked up one of the holy pearls before he refined it into a stun talisman as he planned to bring it to Graham.
Charlie was certain that the Quinton family would definitely be able to deal with the evil spirit after he gave them the stun talisman made out of husk shell and combined with the thunderous breath that specialized in getting rid of evil spirits.
After he was done with all of these, Charlie realized that he still had a lot of clam shards left. Since it was still early at this time, Charlie held the clam shards in his hands as he tried to make a Thunder Order.
According to the Apocalyptic Book, the Thunder Order was a low level magic weapon that could be used mainly to summon thunder and rain.
As soon as he was done practicing the skills needed for the Thunder Order, Charlie heard some movements in the living room.
It seemed as though his wife was already home.
Charlie hurriedly kept the remaining pieces of the clam shards under the bed before he walked out of the bedroom with the bracelet freshly made out of the purple pearls and the holy pearl.
As soon as he raised his head, he saw Claire standing in the living room as she looked helplessly at her mother, Elaine.
When Charlie walked over to the both of them, he saw Elaine showing off her wrist because she was wearing the jade bracelet that Graham had given to him when they met at Antique Street.
Elaine was very excited as she exclaimed, “Claire, this jade bracelet is really amazing! Everyone was praising me when I wore it out today. I felt so delighted!”
Claire stared at her mother in a helpless manner as she replied, “Mom! Isn’t this the jade bracelet that Charlie brought home a few days ago? How could you wear it out without saying a word? I thought I’d lost it!”
Elaine stared at Claire before she replied, “I’m your mother! What’s wrong with me wearing your bracelet? Just let me wear it for a few more days. I’m very happy with the attention that I am receiving because of this jade bracelet!”
When he saw that the mother and daughter were arguing, Charlie quickly hurried over to them before he said, “Claire, it’s okay. Your mother can have the jade bracelet if she likes it. I’ve just made a new bracelet and I am planning to give it to you.”
“What bracelet is it?” Elaine asked as she grabbed it from Charlie’s hand.
However, when she saw that it was simply a bracelet made out of pearls and clam shells, she threw it at Claire before she said, “Oh, it’s just another one of those worthless things again!”
