The Charismatic Charlie Wade - Season 4 Episode 5
Travis Lane’s remarks sent a shock wave across the office and the Wilson family members blinked in astonishment.
Did he actually come to congratulate Claire?!
He was the richest man in Lancaster!
When and how did Charlie and Claire strike up the relationship with him?!
Christopher was utterly shocked. He had never expected the man to be so rude to him and snap at him right in front of everyone. Embarrassed, he quickly retreated and stood aside.
Wendy frowned in confusion and whispered to Harold, “Hey, is this chubby man really the richest man in Lancaster? Why does he feel like an actor hired to impersonate as a ploy to fool us? Why would any prominent figure be so kind and respectful to a loser…”
Harold shook his head and whispered back, “Yeah, I don’t think he’s real too…”
None of the people present had ever seen Travis Lane before, but they had heard the rumors about his notoriety and strictness in managing his business. The man looked nothing like the version in the rumors as he talked softly and gently with Charlie.
Travis took out an exquisite box from his bag and handed it to Claire. “Mrs. Wade, congratulations on the opening of your company, please accept my little gift.”
Claire was a little astonished. She didn’t invite Travis nor did she even know him, so she was wondering if she should accept the gift.
Charlie smiled and nudged her softly. “Dear, it’s a congratulatory gift. You should accept it…”
Claire took the box shyly and wanted to put the box away but Wendy urged from behind her, “Claire, it’s a gift from Mr. Lane. Shouldn’t you let us take a look?”
“Yeah, Mr. Lane is a big boss with a net worth of hundreds of billions of dollars, his gift must be very expensive,” Harold added.
Claire looked at Charlie for a hint, then slowly unwrapped the box under everyone’s gaze.
Inside the exquisite gift box was a crystal-clear jade pendant.
The pendant had no impurities at all and the emerald jade sparkled under the light, illuminating its translucent and bright texture.
Lady Wilson locked her gaze at the pendant as if her eyes were hooked on the jade completely.
She recognized the pendant—it was The Breezy Moon that was auctioned off at Eastcliff some time ago!
It was sold at a high price of fifty million dollars to an ultra-rich man in Lancaster. She had never thought that the buyer was actually Travis.
Her eyes turned green as she stared at the pendant. If the Wilson family got hold of it, it could reverse their misfortune!
Wendy said in an envious tone, “Huh, I didn’t know that someone would actually come here. I wonder what kind of luck they’ve had to have known Mr. Lane…”
As she finished, the front desk’s loud announcement resonated again, “Miss Claire Wilson, your congratulatory gifts are here!” It was followed by an ear-deafening rumbling coming from outside.
Everyone walked out of the building and when they looked up, they saw how the square of the building had been cleared and a huge helicopter was slowly descending.
Then, the entire staff of the building started to get busy.
They moved one flower basket after another and one gift after another from the helicopter into Claire’s office.
