Chapter 172

However, Charlie did not want to say anything about the villa he was about to receive because of Elaine’s current attitude.

As Charlie was busy in the kitchen, Claire walked over to him before she said in a low voice, “Charlie, please don’t take my mother’s words to heart. She is just too vain and idealistic.”

Charlie deliberately asked, “What did your mother say? I didn’t hear anything at all.”

“Alright then, you can continue pretending. It would really be strange if you truly didn’t hear anything at all,” Claire replied as she poke Charlie’s forehead with her finger.

Charlie took advantage of this opportunity to hold Claire’s hand at this time.

Claire started blushing immediately and she looked around the kitchen before she retracted her hand immediately.

However, Charlie refused to let go of her hand. Instead, he brought his hand closer to him as he took a closer look at her hand. Charlie smiled when he saw that Claire was wearing the bracelet that he made her. After that, he asked, “Is the bracelet effective?”

“Yes.” Claire nodded before she said, “I think that it’s really effective. Ever since I put on the bracelet, my body seems much lighter and more relaxed. I also feel much more comfortable today. What is this bracelet made of? Why is it so effective?”

Charlie smiled before he said, “It’s just made out of pearls.”

The Holy Pearl of the Ocean that was on Claire’s wrist right now made her wrist look so fair and tender just like snow.

As Charlie held her smooth and warm hand, he did not feel like letting go at all.

When Claire realized what he was thinking, she blushed before she glared at him and retracted her hand immediately.

Charlie smiled before he asked, “Are you also interested in moving into a new house?”

“Of course! Who wouldn’t want to live in a newer and bigger house? Ever since my mother moved out of the villa, she has been complaining all the time because she feels that this house is too small and shabby…”

Claire sighed before she continued, “But the new houses are too expensive now. Since we do not have so much money on hand, we should just forget it.”

After that, Claire suddenly recalled something and she blurted out, “By the way, we could go and check out some new properties and houses first. We can calculate the price difference between this house and the new house. If the price difference is not too great, then we can get the new house as soon as possible!”

Claire said excitedly before Charlie could even speak, “Alright then. It is decided. Since it is a weekend tomorrow, why don’t we check out some new houses tomorrow?”

Charlie nodded because he could tell that Claire was really very interested and excited about this matter. Therefore, he simply replied, “Sure. If you want to check out some new houses, I’ll definitely accompany you.”

At this time, Claire took out her cell phone to research some real estate information before she finally decided to look at one of the districts with a good environment.

After dinner, someone came and knocked on their front door. Someone from the courier company delivered a small parcel to Charlie before the person said, “This is an express city delivery for you. Please sign to receive it.”

After Charlie signed for the receipt, he opened the small box and found that there was a suite key and several golden key cards with the words ‘Thompson First Villa A05’ written on it.

Charlie also received a phone call from Zeke, the head of the White family. Zeke greeted Charlie respectfully over the phone as he said, “Hello, Mr. Wade. Have you received the key and the room cards for the villa? Thompson First has been developed by the Thompson First Development Company in Aurous Hill. It is one of the most high-end projects around the city right now. The villa that I’ve given you, Villa A05, is the largest villa consisting of one thousand square meters excluding the courtyard! I hope that you will enjoy my gift to you and your family.”

Charlie heard of the Thompson First Development Company before and he knew that they were developing many villas and high rise buildings in Aurous Hill. Thompson First was indeed one of the highest-end projects in Aurous Hill at the moment.

The market price for one of these villas is at least one hundred million dollars.

It seemed as though Zeke was really being very generous.

Therefore, Charlie replied in a light manner, “Thank you for your generosity.”

Zeke was ecstatic as he exclaimed, “No, no! It is an honor for me to be able to do something for you, Mr. Wade!”

After returning to the bedroom, Charlie suddenly asked Claire, “My dear wife, do you like the villas at Thompson First?”

“Thompson First?!” Claire exclaimed in surprise. “How will we ever be able to afford any of the villas there? The prices for an ordinary residential house developed by Thompson First Development Company is already twice the price of any other residential house! However, I must say that the properties developed by this group are really the best in Aurous Hill!”

Charlie smiled before he said, “We can have a look at the villas tomorrow before we decide if we’re interested in buying one.”

Claire hurriedly waved her hand before she said, “Forget it. We should just forget it. Let’s be more pragmatic and check out the ordinary residential houses instead.”

Charlie smiled before he said, “I did not tell you about this before but I actually have a friend working for Thompson First Development Company. He said that he’ll be able to get me one of the villas at cost price, so why don’t we check it out first?”
