Chapter 171

Charlie left the White family mansion as everyone continued staring at him in awe.

Jasmine could not stop herself from staring at him from time to time as she sent him home.

At this time, Charlie had already turned into the same ordinary person that he had always been. He no longer looked like the powerful and strong man that he looked like earlier.

Jasmine could not stop herself from feeling a little suspicious at this time.

When Charlie was in the courtyard earlier, he exuded a very superior and mysterious aura.

However, the Charlie, who was sitting in the passenger seat next to her, looked like an ordinary passer-by.

Jasmine did not know whether this was intentional or whether it was just an illusion.

Therefore, Jasmine could not help but ask, “Charlie…were you really the one who summoned the thunder and lightning just now?”

Charlie looked at her before he smiled.

“Why don’t you make a guess? Would you believe me if I told you that it was just a mere coincidence?”

At this time, the image of Charlie summoning the thunder and lightning suddenly flashed through Jasmine’s mind.

Charlie was standing so confidently as he summoned the thunder and lightning.

Any woman would fall in love with him if they saw how cool he looked.

At this time, Jasmine could feel her heart beating a little faster. However, she quickly shook her head as she thought about it.

What a joke!

Even the world’s most powerful physicist would not be able to control lightning!

If Charlie could summon thunder and lightning whenever he wanted to, why would he be the poor son-in-law of the Wilson family?

Was the thunder and lightning really just a coincidence?

As soon as Charlie arrived at his doorstep, he could hear the voice of his mother-in-law, Elaine, coming from inside the house.

“I already told you to find a capable husband but you refused to listen to my advice! Look at how capable Rachel’s son-in-law is! He can even afford to put them up in a four-bedroom house! Her house is more than one hundred and eighty square meters large! Just look at our house. It is at most one hundred and twenty square meters. Do you know how embarrassing it is for me?”

After that, Elaine continued speaking, “Other people can count on their son-in-law but the guy you married is just useless! How can I count on Charlie? If I have to depend on him, I’m afraid I’ll never be able to live in a big house my entire life!”

At this time, Claire suddenly spoke up in a dissatisfied tone, “Mom, why are you always envious of other people’s belongings? I have already been promoted to the role of director! If we save for a few more years, we will definitely be able to afford a new and bigger house.”

At this time, Charlie’s mother-in-law sneered as she said, “You want me to wait a few more years? I might already be dead by then! Ever since you married Charlie, we have never experienced a single good day in our life! Why are we still living in the same house that you grew up in? All of my friends are living a better life than I am!”

Claire simply replied, “Mom, why do you always have to make such comparisons? Does that make you any happier?”

“I am sick of this!” Elaine continued complaining. “I hate the fact that I am always losing to my friends! I hate this!”

Charlie shook his head before he opened the door and walked into the house in a helpless manner.

Elaine snorted as soon as she saw that Charlie had already come home. “So you’re finally home? Do you know what time it is now? When are you going to start cooking? I am already starving!”

Charlie smiled before he said, “Okay, Mom. I will start cooking now.”

After that, Charlie went into the kitchen immediately.

Charlie understood Elaine’s character very well. She would always feel very uncomfortable and envious of others whenever someone else had something that she did not.

If Elaine knew that Zeke was going to give him a villa, she would definitely rush over to Charlie and say all sorts of sweet nothings to him just so she could get in his good books.
