Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 92
Charlie nodded. “Just get some rest. Once you’ve recovered, you can then run the restaurant. If I need anything, I’ll be sure to find you.”
Douglas exclaimed, “Whenever you need me!”
Charlie then added, “Oh, by the way, don’t tell anyone about what happened today. I don’t want people to know who I am, understood?”
Douglas nodded. “Understood. Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to take this secret with me to the grave!”
Charlie smiled. “I’ll have two caretakers to take care of you, just get some rest. I’ll be off.”
Upon reaching home, Charlie didn’t plan on telling Claire about what had happened since he didn’t want her to know too much. It was safer if she didn’t know anything about his identity.
The next day, as he was buying groceries, Charlie received a call. When he picked up the phone, he realized it was the daughter of the boss of Vintage Deluxe, Jasmine Moore.
Confused, Charlie couldn’t help but wonder what Jasmine wanted from him.
As the call went through, Jasmine spoke, “Mr. Wade, I’m so sorry for disturbing you like this.”
Charlie asked, “Are there any problems with the Yuhuchun Vase that I fixed?”
Jasmine replied, “Oh no, not that. I’m calling Mr. Wade for other matters.” Charlie responded, “What is it?”
Jasmine then revealed her intentions. “Well, it’s just that something has caught my eye lately, however, I’m not quite experienced in this field, but I heard that Mr. Wade was. Would Mr. Wade fancy helping me identify these antiques?”
Charlie was not particularly interested in antiques, but he was indeed lacking some unique collectibles, hence, he probed further. “And might I ask, what type of antique has caught your eye this time?”
Jasmine replied, “It’s a jade. According to the sellers, wearing it can help to calm your soul and success will come your way as well.”
Suddenly, it was as if a lightbulb had lit up in Charlie’s mind. In the, such mythical relics had been mentioned.
These mythical relics had the utmost benefits for the one who possessed them. Charlie wanted to know if he would be able to find such a treasure, and so, he accepted the offer. “Okay, I’ll go with you.”
Jasmine replied, “Thanks, Mr. Wade. I’ll pick you up at 8 am sharp tomorrow.”
“Sure.” Charlie hung up and lost himself in his thoughts.
Rich men like him were incredibly attracted to collecting such mythical relics that were said to have the ability to bring you prosperity and calm the soul. Charlie had decided to dive into this world of collectibles so that he might find what he was looking for all this time.
The next morning, Jasmine arrived at Charlie’s doorstep just as scheduled.
As soon as Charlie got into the car, Jasmine began to brief him. “Mr. Wade, there will be quite a competition to obtain this piece of jade. I’ve heard that quite a few people from Aurous Hill are going to be bidding for it as well!”
Charlie nodded. “It doesn’t matter how many competitors we have, it depends on the item itself. If it really is worth the price, I’m sure Miss Moore will be able to obtain it without fail.”
Jasmine smiled. “Thank you, Mr. Wade, but we don’t know what kind of people we are up against. There might be several powerful figures hiding in plain sight in Aurous Hill.”
Pretending to be surprised, Charlie asked, “What? How could that be? Isn’t the Moore family the most powerful family in Aurous Hill?”
Jasmine smiled once more. “That’s just what everyone says. Let’s see, for example, the new chairman of Emgrand Group alone can overpower the whole of the Moore’s, hence, let us not underestimate the power a person can hold.”
Jasmine then sighed. “Well, to be honest, I really do want to get to know this powerful figure. However, he’s too secretive. For some reason, no one has been able to reveal his true identity.”
