The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 248
Charlie looked at the time on his watch and he felt that it was not that late anyway. Moreover, he had not had any alcohol in a really long time. Therefore, he nodded before he said, “Alright then. You can choose the place!”
Jasmine was overjoyed at this time and she hurriedly replied, “I know of a great bar!” After that, Jasmine stepped on the accelerator as she drove towards the city center.
Jasmine drove them downtown to a bar named Sunny.
Jasmine stopped her car in front of the entrance of the bar before she passed her car keys over to the young boy working as the valet. After that, she quickly led Charlie into the bar.
As soon as the waiter saw her, he greeted her in a respectful manner, “Good evening, Miss Moore! Would you like to go to your usual spot today?”
Jasmine nodded and the other party quickly replied, “Please come with me.”
There was a dance floor on the first floor of the bar and the atmosphere was pretty lively because there was a DJ on the scene. At this time, the waiter led the both of them to the second floor. The second floor was completely empty and there were not many seats available on this floor. Anyone sitting on the second floor could watch the lively scene happening below with not much disturbance at all. Moreover, it was easier for them to have a conversation on the second floor as the music was not as loud as it was downstairs.
As soon as she sat down, Jasmine instructed the waiter immediately, “Bring me two bottles of the best 1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild.”
“Okay, Miss Moore.”
The waiter bowed respectfully before he left and returned very quickly with two bottles of red wine.
The waiter opened the bottles of red wine before he poured it into a decanter. When Jasmine saw the waiter standing there, she said, “Go down and tell your boss not to bring any other guests to the second floor.”
“No problem, Miss Moore,” the waiter bowed respectfully before he retreated immediately.
At this time, Charlie quickly asked out of curiosity, “Do you own any shares here?”
Jasmine smiled before she replied, “This bar was opened by a member of the Moore family.”
Charlie nodded as soon as he heard her words and he replied, “It seems as though the Moore family is really a very big and powerful family.”
As soon as Jasmine heard Charlie’s words, she smiled before she replied, “We’re just a regular family. Even though there are obviously not many families who could match up to the Moore family in Aurous Hill, there are many families who are wealthier and more powerful than we are beyond Aurous Hill. There’s the Scott family, the Lester family, the Hamilton family, the Osborne family, the Duncan family…and the most powerful families such as the Swire family and the Wade family.”
Charlie simply smiled without saying anything at all.
The Wade family? That was his family.
However, he had yet to figure out if he wanted to go back to his family yet.
Anyway, Charlie felt that his life was actually pretty good right then. He owned Emgrand Group and he had more than tens of billions of dollars in cash. Moreover, he had also discovered infinite possibilities from studying the Apocalyptic Book.
In contrast, he would be subjected to so many rules if he returned to the Wade family. He would not be the free man that he was right now.
Jasmine poured a glass of red wine for Charlie before she poured one glass for herself. After that, she handed one glass of red wine over to Charlie before she said, “Mr. Wade, I’d like to give you a toast!”
Charlie took the glass of wine in his hand and he looked at Jasmine’s pink and rosy complexion before he smiled and said, “Jasmine, whenever you drink, you should always have a reason to drink. You should ask yourself if there’s anything you’d like to celebrate or commemorate or if there is something you’re upset or happy about! So, why don’t we talk about what we are celebrating or commemorating before we drink each glass of wine? What do you think of my suggestion?”
