Gerald Crawford: The Secretly or invisible Rich Man Chapter 2306
“… Fine, I’ll bring you along. However, do keep in mind that Maddox has invited people from several other families and companies as well. With that said, even if he makes things difficult for us, we can’t just fight him there…” said Lucian in a concerned tone.
Laughing aloud, Gerald simply replied, “Don’t worry, I’m well aware of that! “
“I’m glad to hear that. Well, putting this aside, how did things go on your end? Did you manage to find where Lindsay is being locked up?” asked Lucian, pleased to hear that Gerald wasn’t planning to do anything rash.

Hearing that, Gerald then began detailing everything that had happened in the past few hours.
Once he was done, the satisfied Lucian who now knew that Gerald wasn’t the kind of person who did things impetuously, was prompted to say, “From the looks of it, Lindsay is most probably being locked up there. Still, I’m glad you didn’t just rush in. I’ve heard plenty of bad rumors about that cruel man, and I’m pretty sure you’d have triggered one of his traps if you had attempted to save her earlier. Whatever the case is, let’s resume this discussion after properly considering everything…”
Seeing that their conversation was over, the butler cleared his throat before saying, “Speaking of which, the auction is in a few days. Would you like to start making preparations, master?”
“Hmm… Has the money been prepared?” asked Lucian.
“Everything’s been prepared, including the money. We’ve sent the quota of people as well, but that’s not what I meant. If you’ve forgotten, the auction is being held on a small island within Yanam. With that said, you’ll need to make a move about three days from now in order to get there a day before the auction begins,” explained the butler.
Upon hearing that, Lucian turned to look at Gerald as he asked, “Do you have a problem with that?”
“Not at all, I can go anytime,” replied Gerald with a shrug.
“Then after joining Maddox’s party tomorrow and taking the following day off, we’ll set off early for the island on the third day,” said Lucian with a nod.
“An auction on an island…? What kind of auction even is that…?” asked Aiden.
“Long story short, it’s an auction for cultivators,” explained Gerald.
“Even if you refuse to detail it, could I come along…?” asked Aiden who genuinely wanted to learn more about cultivators from the day he learned that Gerald was one.
“Unfortunately, we only have three tickets,” replied the butler.
“I see… What a pity…” muttered the disheartened Aiden.
“However… If you really wish to go there, I don’t mind giving you mine. After all, I’ve already partaken in multiple similar auctions with master, so missing out on one won’t mean much,” replied the butler.
“Can I…?” asked Aiden as he looked at both Gerald and Lucian.
“I don’t mind. Besides, if my butler stays, he’ll be able to inform us if anything goes wrong,” replied Lucian after thinking for a while.
“But… I’m not exactly a cultivator… Is it really fine if I come along?” asked Aiden, now feeling slightly worried.
“Oh, don’ t worry about that. Plenty of the attendees aren’t cultivators, you see. After all, aside from items that cultivators can use, rare plants and minerals with various special effects will also be up for auction. With that said, many of the participants will be regular people from large families,” explained Lucian.
“Well, that’s good to hear…” muttered Aiden with a relieved sigh.
“Indeed. Regardless, it’s getting late, so go on ahead and get some rest,” replied Lucian with a yawn.
Honestly, he would’ve headed to bed ages ago had Gerald returned earlier!
