Graham arrived at Charlie’s house early the next morning.
He waited outside Charlie’s house until Charlie finally stepped out of the house as he headed to the market to buy some vegetables. After that, Graham greeted him before he handed his black card over to Charlie.
At this time, Graham told Charlie that there were more than a few hundred million dollars in the black card. It seemed as though Graham was really willing to spend all of his fortune to save the Quinton family.
Aurora had accompanied Graham but this time, she was not as arrogant and haughty as she had previously been.
In fact, she was very respectful towards Charlie.
Ever since Adam got into trouble, the Quinton family had encountered a lot of strange and unpredictable events. Her grandfather had also fallen ill and his body was deteriorating for no reason at all. Aurora knew that Charlie was the only one who would be able to save her family!
After handing the black card over to Charlie, Graham knelt down in front of Charlie as he cried and begged, “Mr. Wade! Please help me save the Quinton family. It does not matter if I die but my daughter is still so young…”
Aurora also knelt down next to her father with red and swollen eyes as she cried and said, “Mr. Wade, please save the Quinton family. If it’s possible, I’m willing to give my life in exchange for my father’s longevity.”
Graham got angry at this time and he yelled at her, “What nonsense are you saying?”
Charlie shook his head in a helpless manner as he stretched out his hand to help them both up. When he held Aurora’s soft and demure hands in his own, Charlie could not help but feel a little uneasy.
After standing up, Aurora blushed as she felt a little embarrassed at this time.
Charlie said, “Don’t worry. I will definitely try my best to help the Quinton family avoid this misfortune and survive this catastrophe. I will try my best to keep your family safe.”
Both the father and daughter were so touched that they wanted to kneel again but this time, Charlie stopped them immediately. “Please stop kneeling in front of me, that’s not very nice. You can both leave first, I will give you a call once I have any news.”
“Thank you, Mr. Wade!” Both the father and daughter thanked him again before they turned around to leave.
When Charlie returned home after buying some vegetables from the market, Jacob hurried over to him before he asked in a nervous manner, “Charlie, were you talking to Mr. Quinton outside the house earlier today?”
“Yes, he wanted to discuss something with me.”
At this time, Jacob could not help but say, “I could see the ugly expression on his face. It didn’t seem like it was anything good. Is there a problem because of what you told him to do the last time at Antique Street?”
Jacob had always felt very worried about this matter because he did not believe that Charlie knew exactly what he was doing.
Charlie smiled before he replied, “Dad, don’t worry. Mr. Quinton stopped by because he wanted me to help him get rid of the evil spirit in his house. He also gave me his bank card and told me to use it to buy anything that would be useful to him at the auction tomorrow.”
Jacob was stunned for a moment before he asked, “How much money is in that black card?”
Charlie replied in a casual manner, “A few hundred million dollars.”
Jacob’s eyes widened in shock at this time. He was so shocked that he clutched onto his chest tightly because he was at a loss for words. He had almost suffered a heart attack!
At this time, Jacob held onto Charlie in an anxious manner. “Charlie, you should not be lying to others anymore. The Quinton family is giving you so much money to help them, but what if something goes wrong? What if they find out you’re just lying to them? Will they kill our whole family? I want you to return the money.”
“Dad, don’t worry. I know what I should do. I promise there will be no problems at all.”
After that, Charlie spoke up again, “Dad, this is a matter of great importance so I hope that you will not tell Claire or mom about this matter. Otherwise, I’m afraid that things will get out of control…”
“I know, I know…”
Jacob knew his wife very well.
That woman was a lunatic who cared about money even more than her own life.
If she were to find out that Charlie had a bank card with a few hundred million dollars inside, she would definitely spend all of that money without any hesitation at all. How would they be accountable to the Quinton family then?
That was a few hundred million dollars!
Jacob could feel his heart pounding when he thought about that huge sum of money. He continued persuading Charlie to return the money to the Quinton family. However, after a short while, he realized that his persuasion seemed to have no effect on Charlie at all. Therefore, he could only sit down on the sofa as he sighed.
All that he could do now was to keep a close eye on Charlie at the auction tomorrow so he could stop him from purchasing something random.
If the Quinton family found out that Charlie had been lying to them, Mr. Quinton would definitely kill his entire family!
