What if he had accidentally thrown the cheque into the washing machine to wash with his clothes?
Oh my God! It was shocking for them to even think about it.
Kenneth’s face twitched faintly in anger. He really did not understand why this piece of trash could actually have so much money. Wasn’t he just a useless son-in-law of the Wilson family?
Charlie asked the host, “Since no one can outbid me and since I can afford to pay one hundred million dollars for it, the superb purple ginseng should belong to me now, right?”
The host regained his senses and said immediately, “Now, I am going to announce that this three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng belongs to…”
Before he could finish his sentence, Kenneth hurriedly said, “Stop! I am going to increase the bid now!”
Everyone at the scene was shocked yet again.
The auction had begun at five million dollars, and the bid was already at one hundred million dollars now. Was he really going to continue bidding and increasing the price?
The purple ginseng was not even worth that much money! Were these two people insane?
Jeffrey hurriedly reminded him, “Chairman Wilson! It is truly a waste to spend one hundred million dollars just to buy that piece of purple ginseng. You could do so much more with this amount of money! Why would you want to waste it just like that?”
At this time, Kenneth quickly asked, “If I can’t get my hands on the purple ginseng, what about your new medicine? How would I be able to cure my illness, then?”
As both of them were talking, a middle-aged man who was slightly bald rushed over to them before he said to Jeffrey, “I am sorry, Mr. Weaver. I am late because I was waiting for the laboratory results!”
The person speaking was the chief pharmacist at Weaver Pharmaceutical. He had just rushed over here from the pharmaceutical factory after checking out the benefits and uses of the purple ginseng on behalf of Jeffrey.
Jeffrey hurriedly asked, “Professor Cruz, I am so glad that you’re here. Do you think that the piece of purple ginseng on stage is worth a hundred million dollars?”
“One hundred million dollars?!” Professor Cruz shook his head as he laughed slightly. “It is not worth that much money. The market price for a three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng should only be thirty million dollars at most! No one should be paying a higher amount than that. Only a fool would buy a three hundred years old purple ginseng for one hundred million dollars…”
“What about Chairman Wilson’s illness, then?” Jeffrey asked immediately.
At this time, Professor Cruz replied with a confident expression on his face. “In fact, we do not need to use a three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng to concoct the medication. All we need to do is find a few one-hundred-year-old purple ginseng and purify it so that we can use that instead. The market value for a one-hundred-year-old purple ginseng is only about one million dollars. Five of them would only cost you five million dollars. Moreover, the price-performance ratio for the five one-hundred-year-old purple ginsengs far exceeds that of the three-hundred-year-old purple ginseng.”
As they were discussing this matter, the host suddenly asked, “Chairman Wilson, are you going to add to the bid or not? Please state the specific amount directly. Otherwise, it would be very difficult for us to continue the bid.”
After listening to Professor Cruz’s words, Kenneth felt confident that he should not allow himself to be taken advantage of. Therefore, he decided to give this opportunity to Charlie and let him waste his money instead.
Kenneth immediately shook his head before he said, “I have decided not to bid anymore. It is simply mentally retarded for anyone to spend one hundred million dollars on just a piece of purple ginseng! Only people who have no brains would do this kind of thing!”
Everyone in the hall started booing him immediately.
If you do not have the money, just admit that you do not have the money. If you are reluctant to spend the money, just admit that you are reluctant to do so. Why would you call someone else mentally retarded just because they were willing to spend that amount of money? Why was he such a sore loser?
Kenneth felt very irritated as he was booed by many people, but he did not dare to say anything at all. Therefore, he could only bite the bullet and endure the humiliation in silence.
No one would say no to money anymore. He did not think that it was worth spending so much money just to save his own face and reputation.
At this time, the host quickly announced, “One hundred million dollars once.”
“One hundred million dollars twice.”
“One hundred million dollars three times. Deal! Congratulations, Mr. Wade!”
Charlie nodded in satisfaction before he looked at Kenneth and said, “Well, let me just give you a friendly reminder now. You will never be able to cure your illness or restore your manhood with any medicine at all. So, I would like to advise you not to waste your efforts!”
