The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 230
Claire was in jitters as she listened to their banter and interjected, “Mr. Murray, Charlie helps out a lot at home. Also, please call me Miss Wilson. Calling me by my first name sounds very unprofessional.”
“What does he do at home, anyway? Go to the market? Cooking? Laundry?” Peter laughed sarcastically. “Claire, if your husband has a hard time finding a job, my company happens to be recruiting security now. You can let him try.”
Then, he continued with a mocking grin, “Claire, if I were you, I would not have married a man who doesn’t even have a secure job. I would have divorced this loser a long time ago.”
Claire frowned in dismay, but before she could speak, she felt an abrupt chill coming from beside her.
She turned around and saw Charlie stand up with a smile on his face as he said to Peter, “Mr. Murray, your reputation precedes you. Now that I finally have the honor of meeting you, indeed, your personality matches your reputation perfectly. I also have something to say to you, Mr. Murray.”
Peter’s lips curled downward into a frown. “What is it?”
He bet that Charlie the loser would not dare to do anything to him!
Charlie put his hands on the table, leaned forward slightly, and said with a sly smile, “What I want to say is, being a person, you can be useless or incompetent, but you must have a moral standard! Because if you don’t, you’re not a human, but an animal!”
He then held the mushroom soup that had just been served with both hands and poured it over Peter’s head, his face blank and emotionless.
Peter wailed in pain and jumped up abruptly as the hot soup scalded his head and face.
Claire was utterly shocked by the commotion. She quickly composed herself and called the waiter to bring napkins.
The steaming hot soup had scalded Peter’s face, and it ran down his neck and into his clothes. The sticky soup drenched his head and clothes, and there was even a piece of mushroom sticking to his glasses.
Peter wailed continually in agony and pain.
The manager rushed over with a few waiters and was stunned by the scene. He quickly ushered the waiters to help clean up the mess.
Peter took off his glasses and pointed to Charlie, yelling, “What the f*ck!!!”
Then, he took out his phone and made a call.
“Hey, Willy, get some guys and come to Little Italy right now! I need to teach a poor bugger a lesson!”
Upon hearing him make the phone call, Claire quickly apologized to Peter. “Mr. Murray, I’m so sorry. My husband was a little agitated just now..”
“Stop your bullsh*t! He splashed me with soup! I’m going to make him kneel in front of me today!” Peter huffed angrily.
Claire hurriedly turned around and said to Charlie, “Hey, go out first, let me explain this to Mr. Murray.”
“Forget about him, let’s go!” Charlie extended his hand and tried to take Claire’s hand. 16 Instead, she frowned in dismay and pushed him away, saying in annoyance, “Mr. Murray is the boss of Millenium Enterprise! He is very influential in the construction industry in Aurous Hill. He knows people, legal, and even the underworld! Never mind that I can’t get his investment, but there are some things that you can’t solve with just your strength.”
“It’s just a small company, I don’t give a d*mn.”
“A small company?!”
Claire rolled her eyes, exasperated.
In the civil engineering industry of Aurous Hill, Millennium Enterprise was ranked in the top five. Its scale was much bigger than the Wilson Group.
Afraid that Charlie might offend Mr. Murray further, her face was icy as she said, “Charlie, leave this to me. Go out and wait for me outside!”
