Overnight, the grand wedding at the Sky Garden became the hottest topic in the city.
However, the bride and groom of the wedding remained unknown.
Charlie drove the modified BMW 520 and went home with Claire.
Claire was still immersed in great happiness, almost as if she was laying in the center of cloud nine. She couldn’t help but ask, “How did you book the Sky Garden? They’ve never allowed that ever.”
Charlie smiled coyly and said, “Frankly, the senior executive of Shangri-La is a good friend of mine back at the orphanage. We used to share our hard and difficult times together and I always shared half of my steamed bun with him, so when I asked him for a favor, he said ok.”
Claire nodded lightly. “Oh, I see. Why haven’t I heard about this before?”
“I have a lot of friends at the orphanage, I might need at least three days to talk about all of them. I’ve never mentioned anything because I thought you didn’t like listening to it.”
Claire uttered in an earnest tone, “You are my husband, of course I’m interested in your past. I’m very curious.”
Charlie laughed gladfully. “Okay then, I’ll tell you more!”
Back in their block, Charlie parked the car downstairs.
Just when they got out of the car, they bumped into Claire’s parents walking back from outside.
Elaine, Claire’s mother, shrieked when she saw them, “Claire, where did the BMW come from?”
Jacob, Claire’s father, had sparkles in his eyes when he saw the car!
“Wow! BMW! Claire, it’s this your new car? You’re quite a big spender huh!”
Claire hurriedly clarified, “Mom, Dad, I didn’t buy the car, it’s Charlie’s.”
“Charlie?” Jacob frowned, curious. He turned to Charlie and asked, “Where did you get the money to buy this car? You used Claire’s money, didn’t you?”
Charlie waved his hands frantically. “No, Dad, I bought this with my private stash…”
Elaine pulled Jacob and circled the car to take a better look, and then pouted, “Huh! You’re staying under our roof and we pay for your food, but you don’t even know to flatter us when you have the money to buy a BMW! You ungrateful bastard!”
Claire hurriedly said, “Mom, don’t say that about Charlie…”
There was a hint of jealousy in Jacob’s tone as he said, “Huh, he even bought a 520, does he think he deserves such a good car? I think the 3 Series is enough for him to show off!”
Elaine said coldly, “I’m telling you, your dad doesn’t even own a car yet! At his age, you’d better let him enjoy life more. Otherwise, it will be too late!”
Then, she added with a demanding tone, “Why don’t we do this? Give the car to your dad as a gift and let him use it!”
Claire looked at Charlie as she pursed her lips and asked, “Charlie, what do you think?”
In Charlie’s thought, he didn’t mind the idea but the car was not a 520, it was a 760!
Frankly speaking, he thought BMW 760 was a waste for his father-in-law as he was a henpecked husband and was not on the favored side of Lady Wilson too…
As he thought of this, he quickly came up with a flattering excuse. “Hmm, Dad, this is a BMW 520, the cheapest model of the 5 Series that they’ve named the beggar version of the Series. I’m afraid that people might tease you when they see you drive it.”
Elaine frowned in displeasure. “Why? You don’t want to give it to us, do you?”
Charlie waved his hands hurriedly. “Oh, no, no! I don’t mean that! It’s just that I can’t let you drive such a cheap model. What about this? Let Claire use this car and I’ll buy you a 530. It’s one class higher than 520 and it’ll boost your reputation more, don’t you think?”
Elaine frowned again, curious this time. “You still have money to buy 530?”
“Yes, I still have some money in hand since I only made a down payment for this car. Don’t worry, I’ll bring you to the showroom for car shopping tomorrow morning!”
