Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 182
“Charlie, is this… did the White family really give this villa to you?” Jacob asked Charlie in surprise when he finally regained his senses.
“Yes, dad,” Charlie replied as he smiled.
“This… you…” Jacob stuttered. He felt as though he was still dreaming.
Claire hurried over to her father before she said, “Dad, why don’t you sit down and rest for a while? Since Mr. White has already explained the situation to everyone, everyone should know clearly now that this villa rightfully belongs to Charlie.”
Claire specifically emphasized the words ‘rightfully belongs’ because she wanted her relatives to hear her loud and clear.
Hannah held her hand against her chest in disbelief before she muttered, “The White family must be really insane! If they wanted to give this villa to someone else, why didn’t they give it to me instead?”
Hannah was not the only one in disbelief because the rest of them were also very shocked at this time. In fact, Harold was extremely jealous of Charlie.
He could never afford to buy this villa even if he worked hard for ten lifetimes, but how did this good fortune fall on someone like Charlie?!
What kind of luck did he have?
Christopher’s face was still pale, and the fact that Zeke had ignored him did not matter anymore. He felt that this villa should have been his daughter’s property in the future, but unfortunately, it had ended up in Charlie’s hands instead. This was totally unacceptable!
He looked at his daughter who was still crying miserably before he looked at Charlie, and he could feel his heart sinking immediately.
He had always looked down on Jacob for the longest time, but now, the latter was actually so many steps above him because of his son-in-law. How could he accept this?
Christopher suddenly spoke up and asked, “Charlie, what kind of favor does Mr. White owe you? Are you going to help him under the Wilson family’s name?”
Charlie replied lightly, “Well, this is my personal business, so there is no need for me to explain myself to you!”
After that, Charlie turned around and spoke to Barry. “It is already getting late. Please help me to see the guests off.”
Even though Christopher claimed to be his ‘elder’, he was nothing at all in Charlie’s eyes!
Barry nodded respectfully before he said to the crowd, “Excuse me, and please follow me. I will lead everyone to the door.”
Christopher glared at Charlie furiously before he calmly walked out of the villa.
Wendy also shot Charlie a look of resentment before following after her father’s footsteps.
They felt extremely broken at this time.
They could not imagine how a useless son-in-law who depended on his wife could actually run into such good luck!
Finally, Barry closed the door behind him before going back to the guest room without disturbing Charlie and his family.
After Harold’s family had left the villa, Claire suddenly asked, “Charlie, it is time for you to tell us the truth now. Why don’t you tell us what you did for the White family and why they owe you for this favor?”
Charlie hesitated for a moment because he did not know how he should explain himself.
A few days ago, the White family had helped Jack to hold a banquet and competition where they wanted to unify the entire metaphysics community in Aurous Hill. However, Jack had been struck to death by Charlie’s own Thunder Order, and the White family had been so afraid that he would also condemn them. Therefore, Zeke had decided to give him the villa as a token of their appreciation and to show how grateful he was toward Charlie. In fact, they were simply afraid that Charlie would be so angry that he might kill them without any hesitation at all.
After thinking about it, Charlie finally replied, “I helped the White family with their Feng Shui matters. Therefore, they decided to repay me by giving this villa to me.”
“What?!” Claire and her parents were shocked.
“Charlie, you helped other people to look at their Feng Shui?” Claire’s eyes widened in disbelief.
Charlie nodded. “Yes.”
Claire continued questioning him with a puzzled expression on her face. “Where did you learn about Feng Shui anyway?”
Charlie smiled before he replied, “By watching the television! There are so many Feng Shui programs on television nowadays!”
Upon hearing that, Claire began panicking as she blurted out, “Charlie, are you insane?! Who gave you the courage to give Feng Shui advice to other people just because you watched some Feng Shui programs on television?! Moreover, you actually dared to accept such an expensive villa as a token?”
