Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 26
“Yes! If my daughter can marry him, I can die in peace!”
“Phew, stop dreaming! Even if you are dead, he will not like your daughter!”
As soon as Elaine saw him, she rushed to his side and said earnestly, “Hey, Kevin, you’re here finally! I was so anxious waiting for you!”
Indeed, it was Kevin.
Kevin said with a smile, “Auntie, I’m very sorry to have kept you waiting!”
“Oh no, Kevin, you’re too kind. I think it had taken you only ten minutes to get here, you came so fast!”
“As soon as I heard that you’re in trouble, I drove over quickly. I even ran some red lights on the way here.”
Elaine looked very smug, but asked with concern, “Will it get you into trouble for running the red lights?”
“No,” Kevin said indifferently, “The guys in the traffic department are all my acquaintances. A phone call is all I need to settle the traffic tickets.”
Kevin cleared his throat and started again, “Anyway, back to your business. How much have you been scammed out of in total?”
Elaine sighed dejectedly. “More than one million dollars. They promised that I can get two hundred thousand dollars in dividends this month, but now, I can’t even get the capital fund back!”
Kevin nodded and said firmly, “Okay, don’t worry, leave it to me. I’ll definitely help you get all the money back.”
Then, he saw Charlie standing behind Elaine and his face darkened slightly.
He didn’t expect to see the loser here.
Ever since he met Claire, he had the urge to get on intimate terms with her. The desire grew stronger when he heard from Gerald that she might still be a virgin.
Therefore, he couldn’t help but sneer when he saw the loser husband of Claire’s. He managed a deliberate smirk and said, “Hey, Charlie, I didn’t know you were here too. Do you have a way to help Auntie get back the money? Do you want to give it a try first? I don’t want you to blame me for stealing your spotlight.”
Elaine interjected hastily, “Oh, stop the nonsense, what can he do, anyway? The most he can help with is to open his mouth and chant the slogans! Kevin, leave him alone.”
Kevin nodded and mocked, “Since Charlie is not capable of helping you, let me try!”
Charlie smiled slightly and said half-heartedly, “Good luck, Mr. White.”
Kevin laughed disdainfully. At this time, the elders surrounded Elaine and said, “Elaine, we’re all your friends. Could you ask this handsome man to help us too, please? It’s our hard-earned money!”
Elaine said arrogantly, “Oh, it’s not up to me to say. Kevin is here to help me, he doesn’t know any of you.”
The crowd turned to Kevin and started begging him. “Mr. White, please be merciful, please help us!”
Kevin found the crowd annoying, but he could see that Elaine was a cheap and greedy person, so he said with a casual smile, “Since you are Auntie Elaine’s friends, of course I can help you.”
Everyone was thrilled to hear him say that. However, Kevin continued in a pompous voice, “But I’m helping you because of Auntie Elaine. So, for the money I get back for you, you must pay Auntie Elaine a 10% commission. Is it acceptable?”
The crowd cheered, “No problem! It’s much better to get 90% of our money back than to get nothing at all!”
Elaine was over the moon upon hearing that.
The amount of money that these friends were scammed added up to tens of millions. If Kevin could get the money back, she would earn a million dollars from the commission alone!
