Because of the leg injury, Elaine seldom went out this time, so she was already a bit suffocated.
It just so happened that at this time Claire talked about going to the United States, and Elaine’s first thought upon hearing this was that she must follow him out to see the world.
Besides, she knew that Charlie wade was making easy money now, so she didn’t want to miss this good opportunity to go out with Charlie wade, and maybe Charlie wade would be able to buy something for himself.
When Claire heard her mother say that she wanted to go along, she was in a bit of a dilemma.
She felt that it would be the best solution for just Charlie wade to accompany herself, and that the situation would really be a bit awkward if she brought her mother along.
So she persuaded Elaine, “Mom, I think it’s better for you to rest at home, America is so mountainous and far away, it’s not easy to go there, besides you don’t have any friends there, it’s easy to get bored.”
Without hesitation, Elaine said, “I’m bored to death at home these days.
Claire was immediately out of ideas and could only look at Charlie wade with a helpless face, wondering if Charlie wade had any good way to dissuade his mother from this idea.
Charlie wade did not want Elaine to give up.
So, he said reasonably, “Mom, Claire is going to the United States this time to attend a master cla*s and go to school for further studies, so she will probably be very busy at that time, in case she can’t take care of you, won’t it be boring for you to stay there?”
“It’s fine.” Elaine said without thinking, “It doesn’t matter if you can’t take care of me, if you can’t take care of me I’ll go out on my own, I’ve never been to America anyway, so I’m sure I’ll find everything new by then.”
At that time, the TV was showing “Eastcliff People in New York”, and young people dreamed of going out of the past to have a look. I wanted to see the Statue of Liberty and the Hollywood Walk of Fame with my own eyes, but I never had the chance to go out for so many years, and this time, I finally have the chance to make my dream come true!”
Charlie wade thought to himself, “You’re making your dreams come true, but what about me and Claire? If you really go along, won’t you ruin the world of Claire and me?”
Thinking of this, Charlie wade immediately said, “Mom, to be honest with you, your leg is still not well enough, so you really need to take a good rest and recuperate, so you can’t run around and toss and turn.
Saying that, Charlie wade smiled slightly and added, “In my opinion, you might as well stay in Aurous Hill and take a rest and recuperate, it just so happens that you have a good relationship with Benedict now, so you can let her keep you company.”
Elaine said, almost without thinking, “No! I’ll be scared to death if I live alone in such a big house!”
Charlie wade said, “Mom, before I leave, I will leave you 500,000 yuan for your pocket money.
When Elaine heard Charlie wade say he was going to give himself 500,000 pocket money, he asked excitedly, “Good son-in-law, you …… are really going to give mum 500,000? You’re not deliberately lying to mum and making fun of her, are you?”
Charlie wade knew that money would definitely work much better for Elaine than any Statue of Liberty.
Seeing that Elaine had really left her American dream behind, he said with a smile, “Mom, when have I ever made fun of you? Don’t worry, as long as you recuperate well in Aurous Hill, I will definitely cash in the half million at the first opportunity!”
Elaine said with great enthusiasm, “Good son-in-law! Then it’s a deal! You can’t renege on anything you say!”
