Surprisingly, regarding the incident that happened at Elite Vault Enterprise, the saddest person was Lady Wilson.
Due to Wilson Group’s sluggish financial condition, she hoped that Claire could persuade Elite Vault Enterprise to allow them to buy building materials on credit. It would have solved the current financial constraint that they were facing.
Out of the blue, the entire Elite Vault Enterprise disappeared out of thin air in one afternoon!
Right now, Lady Wilson’s worst concern was the capital fund issue. Her greatest desire was on how to raise a sum of capital funds for her company.
Claire didn’t tell her grandmother what had happened yesterday. After the experience, she decided that she would focus her entire attention on the project with Emgrand Group and would not bother herself with the family affairs now, not even if her grandmother begged her to.
After a night of rest, Claire was feeling rejuvenated and energetic the next morning and went to work excitedly.
Charlie went out in the morning to the market, and when he returned home, he saw Jacob, his father-in-law, sitting on the sofa, heaving endless sighs.
He frowned slightly and asked, “Dad, what’s wrong? Did someone bother you again? Or did someone scam you again on the antique stuff?”
Jacob took a sip of jasmine tea and said angrily, “Argh, don’t mention the word ‘antique’! I’m so frustrated when I hear it, damn!”
“What’s wrong?” Charlie asked curiously, “Someone scammed you again, didn’t they?”
“No! It’s about the name list of the auction sales organized by the Treasure Pavilion!”
Charlie was even more confused than before. “What is the Treasure Pavilion?”
“It is a hall of the Aurous Hill Antique and Cultural Relic Association. It often holds high-end auction sales of cultural relics and antiques that are scarce and rare in the market. Every family has a name on the name list.”
There was a trace of fascination on Jacob’s face as he spoke.
Then, he hung his head low and muttered, “The Wilson family has only one invitation card, and your grandma gave it to Harold! That bastard doesn’t know anything about antiques and relics. He will be a fool there, why send him?”
Charlie knew that his father-in-law was very obsessed with antiques. It must be heart wrenching for him to lose such a precious opportunity.
So, he managed a smile and said, “Dad, if you really want to go, just buy one from the scalper.”
Jacob shook his hand. “No way. The Moore family is the organizer of the Treasure Pavilion auction, they are the most powerful family in Aurous Hill. A lot of people hope for an invitation card from them, there’s no other way to get it.”
It turned out that the Moore family was organizing the auction.
Jasmine Moore, the missus of the Moore family, once pleaded with him to verify antiques for her, didn’t she?
It would be as simple as a phone call to get an invitation card from her.
Charlie said flatly, “I know a friend who knows someone from the Moore family. It will be a piece of cake to get two more invitations for the auction.”
Jacob shook his head in disbelief. “Forget it. What kind of friends do you have anyway? Know someone from the Moore family? Hah!”
Charlie ignored him. He went upstairs and called Jasmine, “Hello, Miss Moore, can I get two invitation cards for the Treasure Pavilion auction please?”
Jasmine said directly, “Hi, Mr. Wade, are two enough? I can give you more if you want.”
“Nah, two will be enough, it’s just me and my father-in-law.”
Jacob was a fan of antiques and cultural relics. Claire and her mother knew nothing about them and were not interested at all. It would be a waste of time for them if they went anyway.
Besides, after the Antique Street incident, Charlie knew that he had to be there to watch his father-in-law in case he was scammed again.
By the way, he wanted to go over and see if there were some sort of rare elixir or treasures at the auction that were worth buying.
Speaking of treasure, he couldn’t help but think of the pebble with ‘peace and wealth’ written on it.
The pebble disappeared after saving Loreen. He figured that he must have dropped it in the process of the rescue.
After the incident, he went back to search for the pebble to no avail.
Fortunately, he had absorbed all the Reiki from the stone, otherwise, he would really regret losing it.
Since the auction items in the Treasure Pavilion were rare and precious, maybe he could gain something out of it.
