Charlie felt a little surprised that Lord Banks would even use Feng Shui people to investigate him.
Although the old man spoke vaguely on the phone just now, he mentioned some very clear directions. For example, he said he was only responsible for reading, calculating, and correcting. This is the way of a Feng Shui master.
The role of a Fengshui master is in many ways like the prime minister of the ancient country. He can discover the problems and provide solutions for them but he is not a military commander, he cannot kill people, and cannot lead soldiers to fight.
Perhaps, thousands of people may lose their lives through the words of the prime minister, but the prime minister’s own hands are never bloody. Of course, not all prime ministers in history were honest gentlemen, and the same can be said of Feng Shui masters, there are those who seek wealth and take lives.
However, in Charlie’s view, the old man in front of him seemed to be persistent. It was this attitude that made Charlie decide to wait and see how the old man would proceed. Otherwise, he would’ve already struck first.
Mr. Mai didn’t know that the true dragon he was looking for had been sitting right behind him at the next table.
Since they arrived earlier and their food had already arrived, when Charlie and Mr. Riley first started eating, Mike and his grandfather had already settled the bill, and were leaving the restaurant
Charlie didn’t spend too much energy on the two, but kept asking Mr. Riley about his mother’s life back then.
For a long time, Charlie only understood the parts of his mother that were his father’s wife and his own mother. He had no idea about the rest of her.
Now, through Mr. Riley’s stories, he was able to make a more three-dimensional and clear picture of his mother.
They sat and ate for over an hour while Mr. Riley talked endlessly about Charlie’s mother, Lily Evans’s deeds back then, Charlie never tired of listening, and wished he could sit here and listen to the stories all day.
Mr. Riley’s voice was dry from talking so much, he took a drink of water before continuing. “Oh, with everything your mother did back then, I could go on for months. I’ll have to stop for now, I still have classes to teach this afternoon!”
When Charlie heard this, he said hurriedly: “Okay Uncle Riley, I don’t want to interfere with your work.”
Mr. Riley nodded and exhorted: “The situation with my daughter, once you hear any news, please don’t hesitate to call me, I don’t care how late it is.”
Charlie agreed without hesitation: “Don’t worry Uncle Riley, I will notify you as soon as I have news!”
Mr. Riley said, “Thank you so much!”
When the two came out of the restaurant, Mr. Riley asked Charlie: “Charlie, what are you doing this afternoon?
Charlie said, “I’m heading over to Shangri-La to meet with someone. ”
Charlie planned to go to Shangri-La to see Isaac Cameron. Since Lord Banks wants to find and kill him now, he will definitely have many tricks in play. Charlie must take precautionary steps now to locate and eliminate these potential threats, which means he needs Isaac Cameron.
Mr. Riley didn’t think too much, and said “Then I will go back to school first, let’s keep in touch!”
