When Garet got into the Red Flag car prepared by Isaac Cameron and set off for downtown Aurous Hill, he was in a sullen mood and sat in the back row on the left seat without saying a word.
On his right hand side was Lai Qing Hua(Exoer), who was already over 100 years old.
Seeing that Garet was in a bad mood, Lai Qinghua(Exoer) smiled and asked him, “Garet, I see that you don’t seem to be very happy.”
“I can’t be happy ……” Garet said resentfully, “I’m not going to lie to you brother Lai(Exoer), I’ve been irritable since I got off the plane!”
Lai Qing Hua(Exoer) smiled slightly and reminded, “Garet, as the saying goes, you should try to be calm if you are here.”
Garet nodded reluctantly, and then couldn’t help but feel around the car here and there, his face full of disgust that couldn’t be concealed.
Lai Qinghua(Exoer) could see that he was definitely not quite used to this kind of c-cla*s car of several hundred thousand dollars, after all, the price of this whole car might not even be comparable to a seat in Garet’s usual travel car.
So he smiled and said to Garet, “Garet, don’t underestimate this car, it’s a red flag.”
Garet said with a smile on his face, “I know it’s a red flag, but this is the first time I’ve ever sat in one.”
Lai Qinghua(Exoer) said seriously, “Red Flag is the eldest son of the Republic, the founder of China’s automobile industry, and has been the leader’s car for decades, so it means a lot to the Chinese people.
Garet then said, “In that case, the organisers of this auction should be quite patriotic.”
“Yes.” Lai Qing Hua(Exoer) nodded and said, “One has to respect every patriotic person, for he will not stand in the wrong position before the great right and wrong.”
Garet did not speak, his brow slightly knitted in thought.
By the time the motorcade arrived at Buckingham(Shangri-la) Palace, the entire Buckingham(Shangri-la) Palace Hotel was under martial law.
Apart from the Buckingham(Shangri-la) Palace’s own motorcade, no one else was allowed to enter or leave.
However, the lobby of the hotel was bustling with people.
One by one, the bidders who had been sent over were checking in.
The only thing that broke their hearts was that the price of accommodation here was extremely expensive, and for a total of three nights, even the most ordinary standard room cost more than a million.
Everyone knew that this was a deliberate opportunity for the organisers to rip them off. To these people, money was not important, but to be knocked around like this was psychologically unacceptable.
When Garet saw on the fake target that the presidential suite cost $6 million for a three-day stay, he couldn’t help but curse in his heart.
However, he resisted the urge to explode and said to the receptionist who checked in, “I want the presidential suite.”
The other party immediately replied, “Sorry, the presidential suite has already been booked by number 016, you should look at other room types.”
Garet didn’t know who number 016 really was, but since the room was already gone, he had no choice but to settle for the second best and take a luxury suite at a price of two million dollars.
In contrast, Lai Qing Hua(Exoer) was treated much better, as he was directly placed into the Executive Deluxe Suite in the Executive Building as a VIP, which was the second most expensive room type in the entire Buckingham(Shangri-la) Palace after the Presidential Suite, and it was still completely free of charge.
Garet checked in and the first thing he did after arriving at his room was to immediately call Phoebe.
As soon as the call came through, Phoebe asked on the other end of the line, “Grandpa, have you finished checking in yet?”
Garet gave a muffled sound and said, “It’s done, you guessed right, they have really arranged for all the bidders to go to Buckingham(Shangri-la) Palace, I think this is definitely the venue for the auction.”
Phoebe said, “Grandpa, I’m in a special situation, so I won’t be meeting with you for the next two days, but I’ll continue to think of ways to continue to mediate with everyone of the Spring Return Pill outside.”
Garet asked, “How is it going now?”
Phoebe said truthfully, “I dare not say I am absolutely sure, but at least there has been a certain breakthrough, the other party wants to invite me to dinner after the auction, if you fail to win the Spring Return Pill at the auction, I will take you to meet him then.”
“Good.” Garet sighed in relief and exclaimed, “Phoebe, you’ve really worked hard this time! You’ve been running back and forth for so long over this matter.”
Phoebe was busy saying, “Grandpa, this is all what I should do.”
Garet sighed and said, “I hope this auction will go smoothly for the Spring Return Pill, so that when the auction is over, you can return to New York with me.”
Phoebe smiled and said, “Grandpa, I’m sure you’ll be able to win the auction.”
