The Charlie Wade novel begins, chapter 5261
At heart, Maria is a girl with a reserved and somewhat aloof personality.
Does not like interpersonal communication and likes to be home alone,
Read books, drink tea, write calligraphy and draw pictures, and burn incense to tell the future.
Larry’s mansion really surprised her. Thinking of all that running around for days,
He just wanted to have a good rest here and find the slow pace of his life again.
Besides, she’s already decided not to contact Charlie before school starts,
So during this period of time, it’s the best plan for her to practice self-cultivation here,
And occasionally visit the sights of Aurous Hill in disguise.
So, she made a series of lists and asked Sister Xian to help her purchase them.
In the list are a hundred ancient books, seal incense made of ten materials,
Tea leaves of five different origins and various pens, inks, papers and inkwells.
Sister Xian took the list and asked her a few doubtfully:
“Miss, I can understand everything else, except these hundred ancient books”,
“Do you have any requirements? For example, the title of the book, the author, etc…”
“No. Maria smiled slightly and said, ‘Go to the city’s antique market and find some real old books.’
“It doesn’t matter what kind of books, as long as they are old books and can still be read”,
“You can buy them. As for the money, let me know.
Sister Xian was secretly surprised these days,
There aren’t many people who read physical books, so why would anyone want to read ancient books?
Even old books are antiques, and buying a hundred antiques at once is no small amount.
However, her work ethic always told her to do things according to her duties,
And don’t ask questions that shouldn’t be asked.
So, he said, “Okay, miss, I’ll make them later!”
At noon, Maria, Larry and his wife had a sumptuous lunch on the first floor of the Villa.
Not long after dinner, Ethan joined them.
Even though Larry had someone meet him early at the airport,
When Ethan arrived, Larry was surprised when he saw that Ethan was alone, and snapped:
“Ethan, you…why didn’t you bring a bodyguard?”
Ethan didn’t think twice when he said, “I’ve come to Aurous Hill to see the young lady.”
“Of course, I should bring as few people as possible!”
“Miss status is special and the situation is also special.”
“I have to minimize the risk as much as possible.”
Larry said, “But you’re the only one who comes here, how can they agree?”
“Even if you force them with a gun, they have to send someone after them, right?”
Ethan said with a smile, “Not to mention I actually pulled my gun to force them not to follow me.”
“But I didn’t point the gun at them, but at myself”
“I told them I only have six months to live anyway”
“If they don’t let me out of town, I’ll kill myself with one blow”
“And the matter will be resolved sooner than expected.”
Larry was surprised and asked, “Who said you can only live for six months?”
“I think you’re in a good mood, and it’s no big deal to live another five or ten years!”
Ethan smiled helplessly and glanced at Maria.
Larry suddenly realized this and quickly asked Maria, “Miss, do you understand that?”
“Yup.” Maria nodded and said: “But it’s not so absolute, everything can change”.
Larry hurriedly asked, “Miss, the tipping point you mentioned is…”
Maria said, “I don’t know the details, but as long as he stays at Aurous Hill,”
“There is a possibility of finding this inflection point.”
