Raymond was dumbstruck!
He never would have imagined, not even in his wildest dreams, that the vase would transform into a more precious treasure after being restored by a few eggs!
He pointed to Charlie and said, “Miss, this is the man who fixed the vase…”
As Jasmine glanced at Charlie, she couldn’t help but wonder how such a young man would know the long-forgotten cultural relic restoration technique!
Despite her doubt, she managed a polite smile and asked, “Hi, I am Jasmine Moore. How should I address you? May I know from whom you have learned the relic restoration technique?”
Jacob, who was still shivering at the side, was dumbfounded when he heard Jasmine Moore’s name!
The Moore family!
The Moore family was the most elite family in Aurous Hill! Their influence was not comparable to those of Eastcliff’s elite families, but in Aurous Hill, they were at the top of the pyramid where no one could ever reach!
He didn’t expect that he would meet one of their family members here!
Meanwhile, Charlie had a lukewarm reaction towards Jasmine’s status. The Moore family was powerful, but their net worth was valued at hundreds of billions. They paled in comparison to the Wade family with their net worth of a trillion dollars.
He said flatly, “My name is Charlie Wade and I don’t have any masters. You can say that I’m self-taught.”
Then, he continued, “I have repaired the Yuchunhu vase that my father-in-law broke, Please appraise it for its specific value on your side and let us know if we still need to compensate for it.”
Jasmine shook her head with a smile. “After the restoration, this vase has far exceeded its original value. So, it’s the other way around—we owe you instead.”
Charlie smiled faintly. “It’s my pleasure. Since we’ve resolved the matter, we shall get going, then.”
Jasmine’s eyes shifted mischievously, not wanting Charlie to leave so soon. She said with a smile, “Sir, your name skips my mind. May I know how I should address you? Could you leave a contact number so we can keep in touch in the future?”
She retrieved her own card and said as she handed it over. “This is my card, you can call me at the number above.”
Charlie nodded as he accepted the card. “My name is Charlie Wade but I don’t have a name card.”
“It’s okay,” Jasmine said, “Could you please leave me your phone number, then?”
Charlie eyed her cautiously. He felt that it would be good for him to have his own connections. Besides, this lady, Jasmine Moore, looked very polite and humble, unlike an arrogant and dominating person. It would bring no harm if he made friends with her.
Hence, he exchanged phone numbers with her.
After the exchange, Jasmine said, “Mr. Wade, would you like me to send you home?”
Charlie waved his hand and said, “Thanks but no thanks, I came here by car.”
Jasmine nodded. “I’ll see you off then!”
Jasmine escorted Charlie and Jacob to the BMW 530. She watched them drive away before heading back to Vintage Deluxe.
On their way home, Jacob asked curiously, “Charlie, where did you learn the craft of cultural relic restoration?”
The content of the Apocalyptic Book was running through Charlie’s mind like violent waves. Of course, he couldn’t tell his father-in-law that he had found the magical and mysterious book inside the broken vase. He needed time to slowly digest all the amazing content in the book. In fact, he couldn’t tell anyone about it.
So, he simply blurted a lie. “I learned it from the cleaner at the orphanage.”
Jacob nodded. “Thank god you were there, or else, I may be in prison now…”
Then, he quickly said as if a thought suddenly struck his mind, “Oh yeah! Don’t tell Claire and your mother-in-law about this, do you understand?”
