The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 249
Jasmine smiled after listening to Charlie’s special request. After that, she said, “Okay, let’s do that! Since this is the first glass of wine, I’ll start first!”
After that, Jasmine cleared her throat before she smiled sweetly and said, “This first glass of wine is to thank you for saving my grandfather today! I’d also like to thank you for doing me this big favor today!”
Charlie nodded and smiled as he said, “Okay, then let’s drink this glass of red wine immediately!”
After he was done speaking, Charlie lifted his wine glass before he gently touched it against the wine glass in Jasmine’s hand. After that, he finished the entire glass of red wine in one go.
At this time, Jasmine also finished her entire glass of red wine immediately. After that, she smiled before she asked, “Mr. Wade, why don’t you tell me why we should be drinking this second glass of red wine?”
“Okay,” Charlie smiled. “This second glass of red wine is to celebrate fate and destiny! Even though there are so many people in this world, it is simply because of fate that both of us met and got to know one another! Therefore, we should celebrate fate!”
“Okay!” Jasmine replied and she smiled as she yelled out, “Let’s drink for fate!”
Immediately after that, Jasmine refilled their glasses with more red wine before she said, “This third glass of wine is to celebrate Mr. Wade’s superb skills and abilities! Today, I got to witness Mr. Wade’s ability to treat illnesses and save other people’s lives. Moreover, I’m now even more certain that it was not a mere coincidence that Jack Yaleman was struck to death by thunder and lightning! Would you like to explain yourself, Mr. Wade?”
Charlie smiled in a casual manner as he said, “Well, who knows whether it was a mere coincidence or not? Only the heavens knows! As for mortals like you and me, I can only say that this is a secret that shouldn’t be revealed!”
Jasmine nodded and she laughed and looked into Charlie’s eyes before she said, “Well, then let’s drink in order not to reveal this secret!”
“Let’s do it!”
After a few glasses of wine, Jasmine was already feeling a little tipsy.
Even though she could really hold her liquor, she had already drank several glasses of red wine at one go.
At this time, it was Jasmine’s turn to give her toast and say something before they drink.
Jasmine looked at Charlie with her eyes wide open and a tipsy expression on her face as she said, “Actually Mr. Wade, I’ve recently discovered that you’re actually a pretty good person.”
“Pretty good?” Charlie chuckled before he asked out of curiosity, “What do you mean by that? How am I good?”
“You’re good in so many ways,” Jasmine replied earnestly. “You’re so much more interesting than the other people I usually meet or encounter. Many of the people that I’ve met would usually try to flatter me or treat me well because they have some other ulterior motives. That’s the reason I think you’re a good person.”
“What?” Charlie replied as he laughed. “So, do you think I have no ulterior motives for getting closer to you?”
Jasmine nodded before she replied, “I feel as though you’re a little detached from the world because you’re hiding something.”
