Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 47
Since Charlie had agreed to attend the class reunion, Claire reminded him, “We have to prepare some gifts for the opening of Douglas’s restaurant, we can’t go empty-handed.”
Charlie nodded. “Alright, I’ll go and buy a gift from him tomorrow morning.”
“Great,” Claire said, “I have to go to the Emgrand Group office tomorrow morning.”
Loreen said in surprise, “Is that so? Then stop by my office when you’re done, I can carpool to Douglas’s restaurant with you at noon.”
Claire smiled coyly, “Well, you can throw your wishful thinking out the window! I don’t have a car. I usually take the taxi or bus, and sometimes Charlie will fetch me with his scooter.”
“What?” Loreen blurted, exasperated. “Young lady, you’re a director of a company now, why don’t you buy a car for yourself?”
“I’ve just started working and haven’t made any money yet. My salary is usually used for our expenses and I have to give my mom an allowance. I’m only left with a thousand dollars or so at the end of the month and it’s not enough for me to buy a car.”
Then, Claire continued, “By the way, frankly, I enjoy taking the bus, it’s quite convenient. A ride on Charlie’s scooter on a fine day is awesome too.”
Loreen said in an earnest tone, “Excuse me miss, you don’t have to be ostentatious, but you have to be aware of your status now. You are the director of Wilson Group now and also a partner who works directly with Emgrand. Some people might badmouth you if you don’t even have a car.”
Charlie felt that Loreen was right.
His wife had always been too frugal. What’s more, she handed most of her salary over to her mother and she didn’t leave much money to herself.
On the other hand, his mother-in-law was a big spender who kept most of Claire’s salary to herself. She would rather use one million dollars of the family savings to invest in some fraudulent financial insurance than to give Claire two or three hundred thousand dollars to buy a car.
He felt that he should buy a car for his wife. It would be convenient for her to go around and also would look better for her reputation when she went to business meetings.
After making up his mind, he decided to visit the 4s shop early the next morning.
After dinner, the couple parted ways with Loreen and took a taxi home together.
On their way home, the DJs on the radio were discussing the charter of the Shangri-La Sky Garden.
The DJs were all amazed as this was the first time in history that Shangri-La was making an exception to close off the entire Sky Garden. They were equally curious about the person behind this and his background.
The taxi driver started, “In my opinion, it must be the mysterious rich guy on the Internet!”
Charlie remained silent but he was a little astonished!
It seemed that after the news that the Sky Garden on the top floor of Shangri-La was announced, it caused a sensation throughout Aurous Hill!
This matter spread like wildfire and being discussed all over the place in Aurous Hill overnight! Very soon, each and everyone in the city knew about it!
Everyone knew that the Shangri-La Hotel adopted membership service and only top-class members had the privilege to use the Sky Garden! As for the charter, not even Diamond members were eligible to do so! It was absolutely impossible!
Thus, the person who managed to charter the Sky Garden had suddenly become a hot topic that everyone was utterly curious about!
Someone said that the person was the mysterious guy on the Internet.
Someone said that the person was a wealthy man from abroad.
Someone said that the person was a mysterious man who wanted to hold a lavish and romantic wedding…
The third rumor was more convincing than the rest!
The news created a massive wave throughout the city!
