Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 97
Jasmine had a very indifferent expression on her face as they sat in the car.
For her, the fact that there was such a useless scumbag in her family was extremely frustrating. Moreover, what was even more vexing was the fact that Uncle Quilt had tried to set her up in front of so many outsiders.
If he had fooled her into giving him the money today, Uncle Quilt would have escaped with all that money. Jasmine would have been really embarrassed if she had discovered the fact that she had been cheated only after losing a vast fortune that belonged to the Moore family!
Fortunately, Charlie was present at that time and had saved her, helping her avoid losing her family fortune.
Jasmine took out a bank card from the glove box in her car before she handed it over to Charlie. “Mr. Wade, there is about one million dollars in this card. The passcode is six ‘eights’. Please accept this as a form of my gratitude.”
Jasmine could not help but sigh as she spoke. Why had Charlie chosen to join such a small family when he seemed to be so professional and skillful? If he had come out and started his own antique appraisal business, he would have been able to create a massive career for himself after a few years.
Charlie hesitated for a moment as he looked at the bank card in her hand.
One million dollars was not a small amount, but it was nothing to the Moore family.
At first, Charlie had no care for the one million dollars at all. After all, he had more than nine billion dollars in his own bank card, so to him, one million dollars was just a drop in a bucket of water.
What was the point of accepting it?
However, when he thought about it, he was just not a trillionaire. He was merely the son-in-law of the Wilson family.
He was simply someone’s son-in-law. If he turned down the offer of one million dollars as a reward, this would definitely seem suspicious to Jasmine. Hence, Charlie took the bank card from her and said, “Thank you, Miss Moore.”
Jasmine smiled before she replied, “Mr. Wade, you are way too polite.”
After speaking, Jasmine asked again, “Where are you heading to, Mr. Wade?” Charlie smiled as he replied, “Can you drop me off at the vegetable market? I have to buy some vegetables so that I can go home and cook.”
Jasmine was stunned upon hearing his reply and could not stop herself from asking, “I have heard about you in the past, but Mr. Wade, in my honest opinion, you have a very good set of skills that you should put to good use. There is no need for you to be a stay home son-in-law. Why don’t you come and work for me instead? I promise to give you a basic salary of one million dollars a year. What do you think of my offer?”
Charlie quickly waved his hand as he smiled and said, “I am already used to living like this.”
Jasmine was startled at his reply, but she could only sigh in response.
It seemed as though the rumors were true. She had already heard the rumors stating that Charlie was a son-in-law who lived off his wife.
In the past, Jasmine used to think that this was simply a rumor. She had initially thought that he had not been given the opportunity to prove himself.
However, now, she finally understood that Charlie was the one who chose to waste his life away, and she found this truly unacceptable.
Therefore, her attitude and impression of Charlie changed immediately.
Charlie knew that she would definitely look down on him. However, that would be best for him. In fact, it would be better if everyone around him had the wrong impression of him. That way, he would be the one to have the last laugh in the end.
When they finally arrived at the vegetable market, Charlie got off the car after bidding farewell to Jasmine. After that, he bought some vegetables before heading home. 27 As soon as he stepped into the house, Charlie could hear the old man laughing wildly as he shouted out loud.
“Hahaha… come, come. Come and look at what I’ve found!”
At this time, Claire had already gotten off work, and she was sitting on the sofa while reading some documents. She turned around to look at her father as soon as she heard Jacob shouting. “Dad, you almost scared me to death.”
“Hurry up and take a look at this!” Jacob did not notice the expression on Claire’s face at all. Instead, he held out a pair of palm-sized celadon cups, as though he was trying to show them off. “This is the blue and white celadon cups that I found in the antique market today! I heard that they found it in the late emperor’s coffin and it is worth more than five hundred thousand dollars!”
“More than half a million dollars?” Claire stood up as she blurted out immediately. “Dad, where did you get so much money?”
