The Amazing Son in Law by Lord Leaf Chapter 50

Read The Amazing Son in Law [by Lord Leaf] Chapter 50 – He thought about what he could do until an amazing idea suddenly struck his mind! He drove to the nearby car repair workshop, then spent twenty bucks too replace the BMW 760 logo with a 520. The main differences between these models were their engines and interior layouts. The exterior of a BMW 5 series looked very similar to the 7 Series that it was quite difficult to distinguish between them other than through the rear tail label. The 520 was the lowest spec model in the 5 Series-with an average engine and average technology, it was an all- round average car. On the other hand, the 760 was the highest spec model in the 7 Series with a top-notch engine, awesome maneuver control. It was a very powerful car. Charlie Wade grinned triumphantly as he drove the 760 with the 520 logo at its back. Claire Wilson Wilson didn’t know much about cars and wasn’t enthusiastic about them. She would buy it without a doubt if he told her this was a BMW 520.

The owner of the workshop smacked his lips in amusement as he watched the BMW leave his shop. He didn’t expect the young man to be so mischievous despite his honest look. He must have a cunning plan playing in his mind that he deliberately changed the 760 logo to a 520!

After car shopping, Charlie Wade remembered his second mission-to buy a gift for the opening of Douglas’s restaurant at noon today. As Douglas was the one and only classmate who was nice to him during college, he wanted to give a generous gift to him. He drove to a large consignment shop gallery and spent two hundred thousand dollars for an early painting by Rachel Ruysch, the painter from the Dutch Golden Age. Rachel Ruysch’s fame was lost to much of the art history world nowadays, so most people wouldn’t recognize her paintings. He selected an ancient painting as his gift to Douglas for two reasons-he wanted to give Douglas a meaningful and expensive gift but he didn’t want the others to know how much the painting was worth. If someone were to ask about it, he would simply say that it had only cost a few thousand dollars.

After shopping, it was almost noon. He called Claire Wilson Wilson and told her that he would pick her and Loreen up from the Emgrand Group headquarters. Claire Wilson Wilson gaped in surprise when Charlie Wade drove a BMW 5 series! She stared at him, dumbfounded, and asked in shock, “Where did the car come from?”

Charlie Wade said with a warm smile, “I bought it for you!”

“You bought it?” Claire Wilson Wilson was even more surprised. “Where did you get the money?”

“Private savings, of course,'” Charlie Wade said with an indifferent shrug. “Look,I didn’t spend a penny when we got married, and all these years, all my expenses have been covered by you and your family. What’s so weird about saving some pocket money?”

“It’s your savings, you should use it on yourself. Why did you spend on such an expensive car? It must have cost four hundred thousand dollars, right?”

Charlie Wade chuckled. “You’re my wife, what’s wrong with me spending my pocket money on you? Do you want me to spend it on my mistress? Besides, you are a director now and people might tease you for not having a car.”

Loreen quickly interjected, “Claire Wilson Wilson, you do need a car for your daily commute. This car is quite suitable for you, by the way.

Charlie Wade loves you so much, you should be happy!”

Claire Wilson Wilson nodded and said gratefully, Thank you, Charlie Wade!”

Charlie Wade grabbed her hand gently and said, “You’re welcome, my dear.”

Then, he urged the ladies, “Let’s go to Douglas’s restaurant now!”

Claire Wilson Wilson hurriedly asked as if a thought suddenly struck her, “Did you buy him a gift?”

“I did,” Charlie Wade answered, “I bought him a painting.”

“A painting?” Claire Wilson Wilson asked curiously, “What kind of

painting?”

“An ancient painting I saw on Antique Street. It’s a painting of pomegranate, which symbolizes righteousness. It looked pretty good, so I bought it.”

“How much did you buy for?” Several thousand dollars.'”

Claire Wilson Wilson nodded and chuckled, “I think you might have been scammed! You can’t buy an authentic painting for that price.”

Charlie Wade smiled casually. “Never mind, it’s the token of our heart that is the most important.”

Claire Wilson Wilson nodded in agreement. “You’re right, it’s our courtesy that is the most important. Let’s go!”
