The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 325
Charlie was in the ward with his wife, Claire, as they accompanied and chatted with Jacob.
Suddenly, the door was kicked open as Elaine charged into the room aggressively.
As soon as she entered the ward, Elaine held out the one hundred million dollar cash cheque in her hand before yelling, “Charlie! You b*stard! How dare you try and cheat me?!”
Charlie was taken aback, and he asked in surprise, “Mom, what are you talking about? When did I try to cheat you?”
Elaine ignored him and ran directly to Claire as she complained, “Daughter! Look! You have to divorce this big fat liar today! There is something wrong with this guy! He even tried to cheat your own mother! How can you forgive him?”
Claire was very puzzled and she asked, “Mom, what happened?”
Elaine handed the cheque over to Claire before saying, “Look! Your husband must be crazy! He actually gave me a fake one hundred million cash cheque, and the cashier at the registration counter almost called 110 to report me for committing fraud!”
Charlie cursed in his heart. This… this had to be the one hundred million dollar cash cheque that Jasmine had given him to thank him.
D*mn it! He must have placed it in his pocket and mixed it up with the one hundred and eighty thousand dollar cheque!
It was over. Everything was over now.
How could he possibly explain this to Claire?!
Claire took a look at the cash cheque, and the expression on her face changed immediately. After that, she blurted out, “Charlie, what is going on? Why do you have a fake cash cheque worth one hundred million dollars? Are you really engaging in fraud now?”
Charlie hurriedly explained himself, “Dear, this is all a misunderstanding!”
Claire frowned before saying, “What the hell is going on here? You’d better explain everything to me now, Charlie.”
At this time, Elaine suddenly cut in, “What else is there to explain?! This cash cheque is quite obviously a prop that he carries around with him when he goes out to deceive others! He accidentally gave it to me today! Hmph! I think that it is truly fortunate that he gave it to me! Imagine what would have happened if he actually tried to deceive someone with this fake cash cheque?”
Then, Elaine looked at Claire before she said in a distressed manner, “Claire, he is even brave enough to commit fraud worth a hundred million dollars now! Are you sure you can still trust someone like him? If you don’t divorce him today, he will unquestionably get our whole family into trouble!”
Claire had a cold expression on her face as she looked at Charlie. “Charlie, if you do not explain yourself and tell me the truth about this matter today, I will truly consider divorcing you! I can accept it if you are poor and useless, but I really cannot accept it if you choose to steal, kidnap, or commit fraud just to earn some money. If that is the case, I will not be able to live with you at all!”
Charlie looked at Claire with an aggrieved expression on his face as he said, “Wife, just listen to me. I will explain everything to you. I bought this one hundred million dollar cash cheque from the funeral shop.”
“The funeral shop?” Both Claire and Elaine were taken aback, and they asked, “What is it for? What happened?”
Charlie sighed as he continued explaining himself. “Didn’t I tell you that my old man died when I was eight years old? He appeared in my dream two days ago and told me that he was constantly bullied by others because he had no money to spend down there. So, he asked me to burn him some money…”
As he spoke about it, Charlie sighed as he continued, “I did not dare to delay it any further, so I went to the funeral shop to ask about this matter. The owner of the funeral shop recommended this cash cheque to me and said that burning one cash cheque that is worth one hundred million dollars is much more useful than burning many other smaller notes. Moreover, it is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly. I thought of burning it at the intersection tonight, but I unexpectedly gave the wrong cheque to mom instead…”
Upon hearing this, Claire asked suspiciously, “Charlie, are you telling me the truth?”
Charlie nodded hurriedly before he said, “Yes, I am telling you the truth! Just think about how much bad luck we have experienced lately! Moreover, who would try to commit fraud with a cash cheque worth one hundred million dollars? No one would fall for it! Even a hospital cashier would not fall for this trick!”
Claire thought about it for a moment and she felt that what Charlie said was very true.
No one would believe that the one hundred million dollar cash cheque was real anyway. Therefore, it was not suitable to be used as a tool for fraud.
