Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 203
The news that Emgrand Group had blacklisted the Wilson Group spread around Aurous Hill quickly.
At this time, everyone in Aurous Hill already knew that the Wilson family was finished. News that the old lady had been admitted to the hospital as soon as she heard about the fate of the Wilson Group also spread very quickly.
Charlie’s father-in-law, Jacob, was not even surprised when he heard the news.
He calmly told his daughter and son-in-law, “My mother has always been like that. She has always felt the need to control other people throughout her entire life. It was only a matter of time before she suffers from her own actions! There is no need for us to feel sympathetic at all. We should give her some time to reflect on herself in the hospital. Perhaps she will finally understand what she has done wrong in her life!”
Charlie was relieved because it was rare for Jacob to finally look aside when it came to matters related to his mother.
After heaving a sigh of relief, Claire began to secretly look for a job.
When Charlie was done cooking dinner later in the evening, he suddenly heard the sound of the door opening behind him.
He turned around and saw Jacob walking in, looking extremely happy.
Charlie looked at the expression on Jacob’s face and could not help but to ask, “Dad, why are you so happy after taking a stroll? Did something good happened?”
“Hahaha! I have really good luck today!” Jacob replied as he laughed. “After taking the pill that you gave me, all the pain that I was feeling vanished completely. Moreover, I am feeling extremely refreshed and energetic right now!”
“Do you want to guess who I met at Antique Street just now?”
“Who?” Charlie was very worried. Did his father-in-law get cheated by the counterfeit dealers and stall owners at Antique Street again?
Charlie glanced up and down at Jacob before heaving a huge sigh of relief.
Fortunately, Jacob had come home empty-handed today.
Jacob sipped the cup of tea in his hand before speaking mysteriously, “Son-in-law, do you remember the owner of the antique stall that we went to before this? I am talking about
Zachary, the swindler at Antique Street. Do you remember him?”
“Yes, I do. What happened?”
“Haha! I met that kid when I went to Antique Street today!”
Charlie was shocked, and he hurriedly asked, “Dad! Did you buy anything from him again?”
“No!” Jacob replied as he waved his hands happily. “Zachary knows that I am your father- in-law, and he does not dare to cheat me of my money anymore. He not only gave me a piece of jade pendant today, but he also helped me to sell some medicine!”
Charlie frowned at this time. He was not worried because the jade pendant that Zachary gave to his old man was probably a fake anyway, but he found it really strange that Zachary would offer to sell medicine for him.
“What medicine are you talking about?”
“The pills that you made for me to treat my traumatic injuries! I know that it’s a pill to relieve the heart,” Jacob replied as he slapped his thigh excitedly. “My injuries are completely healed! As soon as Zachary heard about my injuries and the effectiveness of the pills, he told me that he had a way to sell the pills for me. I gave two of the pills to him, but I did not expect him to really be able to sell the pills!”
Charlie was dumbfounded.
The pill was not a rare or precious item and he would have allowed the old man to throw it away if he did not finish it. However, Charlie was amazed because Zachary was really good at taking advantage of any loopholes that he could find. He was even able to sell leftover medication!
“Dad, there is no authentication for these pills. How could you sell it?”
Jacob simply replied, “I don’t know about that, but Zachary helped me to sell the pills anyway. Do you want to guess how much I sold it for?”
“Over a thousand dollars?”
“No, you are not even close!” Jacob laughed triumphantly. “I sold it for half a million dollars!” 7
Charlie had been drinking water at this time, and he spurted the water out of his mouth as soon as he heard Jacob’s words.
He could not believe it. The pills probably cost less than a hundred dollars, but Zachary had actually managed to sell it for half a million dollars?!
