Jasmine quickly said, “Master Wade, Grandpa has always respected you, please sit in the main seat.”
Charlie hesitated for a while. Then, he nodded and said, “Okay, then. Thank you for the honor.”
Then, he sat down on the main seat.
Don Albert spoke graciously as he slowly retreated to the door, “Master Wade, Lord Moore, Miss Moore, please enjoy your lunch, I’ll see myself out!” He left the room and closed the door.
Once there were only the three of them in the room, Lord Moore retrieved a golden-colored bank card from his suit pocket and presented it to Master Wade graciously. “Master Wade, thank you for the rare gift that you gave me yesterday, I am very grateful! I prepared this card for you as a little token of my affection, it has one billion dollars of balance in it. Please accept it.”
Charlie glanced at the card. “Lord Moore, I have enough money. Please take the card back.”
He was telling the truth. He had more than 20 billion in his account that he didn’t know how to spend.
Lord Moore insisted. “Master Wade, I know that you have enough to spend, but you bought the 300-year-old purple ginseng at a price of 100 million dollars at the Chinese Medicine Expo the other day. In the future, in case you stumble upon a rare or high-quality medicinal material but are short in cash, it would be a pity. So, please accept this card in case of an emergency.”
Frankly, Lord Moore had a somewhat selfish motive in giving Charlie the money.
He knew that Charlie had bought the extremely rare purple ginseng to make the Rejuvenating Pills which was consequently presented to him. Hence, he figured that if he gave Charlie some more money, perhaps when Charlie used the money to buy better medicinal materials and refined better medicine, Charlie would remember his monetary contribution and give him some.
With this firmly set in his mind, Lord Moore got up from his chair, knelt on one knee, and said, “Master Wade, I hope you can accept the little token of appreciation, otherwise, I will remain to kneel!”
Charlie hurriedly helped him up and said with a smile, “Okay then, thank you for your generosity.”
“That’s wonderful!” Lord Moore stood up in delight and said, “Master Wade, if you need any financial assistance or anything that we can help with, please speak up, I will help you by all means!”
“Thank you again for your generous offer.”
“It’s my honor! I am very fortunate to be blessed by your magical elixir, I hope that I can repay your favor by doing all that I can to assist you!”
Then, Lord Moore quickly added, “Oh yes, by the way, the password for this card is Jasmine’s birthday,1211995.”
Charlie glanced curiously at Jasmine. “Oh? Your birthday is on December 1st?”
Jasmine bowed lightly and replied, “Yes, Master Wade, my birthday is on December 1st.”
“Your birthday is less than a month away, then.”
“Yes.” Jasmine nodded nervously, then asked in a tentative tone, “Master Wade, I may hold a simple birthday dinner on my birthday, I wonder if you are available to attend?”
She glanced at him, her eyes as bright and shiny as the bright moon in the sky, hoping that Charlie would agree to her invitation.
Charlie considered the invitation for a moment. Then, he nodded firmly and said, “Since it’s your birthday, of course, I will join. Please inform me of the venue and time then.”
“Thank you, Master Wade!”
“Jasmine, you and I are about the same age, please don’t bother with the formality.”
Jasmine nodded shyly and said, “Okay, Master Wade!”
