The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 234
All this felt like a coincidence but how could there be such a coincidence?
Peter had a vague feeling that all of these were definitely related to Charlie. Therefore, he could only kneel in front of Charlie because he no longer cared about his own reputation.
Claire did not know what the other party had told Peter over the phone. Therefore, she could only say in surprise, “Peter, isn’t your company doing well? What are you talking about? Besides that, even if you’re facing bankruptcy, what has it to do with Charlie?” 11 Peter knelt on the ground as he said, “Claire, I’m so sorry for offending you a while ago! I admit my mistake and I’m begging for your forgiveness. My company called me earlier to tell me that one of my biggest customers had called to terminate their contract with us. Moreover, all the banks have just called to collect the money that I have borrowed from them. I am done for this time…please help put in a good word for me in front of Mr. Wade. Otherwise, there isn’t a way for me to survive in this world anymore.”
Claire was taken aback at this time and she simply replied, “I think you’ve made a mistake, Peter. I don’t think Charlie holds so much power.”
Charlie also replied faintly, “Peter, everything in this world has its cause and effect. It’s useless to ask me for help. You should reflect on yourself.”
After that, Charlie led Claire into the car before he got into the car.
After Charlie drove away, Peter was still kneeling on the side of the road with a blank expression on his face.
large crowd of people had already gathered around him as they stared at him in surprise. At this time, the crowd of people could not help but whisper among themselves.
However, Peter could not take it anymore.
Even though he was a highly successful and well-respected person today, he would become a beggar on the streets tomorrow!
No, he would not even be a beggar.
He did not have any money at all and he owed people more than hundreds of millions of dollars in liquidated damages.
At this time, Peter’s cell phone started ringing again and his assistant’s flustered voice sounded on the other end of the line.
“Mr. Murray, the usury company has called to tell us that their interest rate will increase tenfold and that they’ll be collecting their money tomorrow. If you don’t have the money to pay them, they said they’ll chop your right hand off…”
“Mr. Murray, the landlord of the office building we’re renting has also called to inform that the rental will be increased twentyfold and if we refuse to agree to that rental rate, we’ll have to move out tomorrow!”
Peter dropped his cell phone to the ground and he knelt on the ground with a dull expression on his face.
After a short while, Peter suddenly screamed, “Oh my god! Who on earth did I offend?”
He hit the ground frantically with his hands and he started knocking his forehead against the ground. Blood started gushing out immediately.
Peter could no longer bear the huge blow and he suffered a nervous breakdown. He started foaming at the mouth and his eyes rolled to the back of his head before he fainted.
Charlie had a calm expression on his face as he drove.
The more Claire thought about it, the more she felt something had gone amiss. Therefore, she quickly asked Charlie, “What did you do to Peter? Why does it seem like he was so afraid of you?”
At this time, Charlie replied lightly, “I didn’t do anything to him. I’ve been waiting for you outside all this time, so what could I possibly have done to him? He’s probably in this state because he has offended too many people in his life. That’s why everyone is out to get him!”
Claire was still a little suspicious but she thought Charlie’s explanation made sense. Peter had probably offended a very powerful man and he was simply putting the blame on Charlie.
When she thought about it, she felt a little angry and she said, “Well, Peter’s really a very shameless person. He deserves to go bankrupt!”
Indeed, he felt that Peter deserved it. Since he had provoked him, then bankruptcy was the best punishment for him. Otherwise, Peter would continue abusing his power against the weaker parties.
Claire sighed at this time before she said, “It seems like I’ll have to find a new business partner to talk about our collaboration then.”
When Charlie heard Claire’s words, he reminded himself to ask Doris to make sure that Emgrand Group would give more work and collaboration proposals to his wife.
When they both arrived at their house, Claire was still telling Charlie about her next development plan for the studio.
However, as soon as they entered the house, Jacob rubbed his hands and walked towards them immediately. After that, he glanced at them with an awkward expression on his face before he said, “Um…Claire, your mother wants you to go back and work for Wilson Group tomorrow.”
“What?” Claire exclaimed with a shocked expression on her face.
Charlie also frowned as he said, “Didn’t we already decide to draw a clear line with the Wilson family?”
“Oh!” Jacob looked very embarrassed and he could only say helplessly, “I don’t know what’s going on with your mother but she insists that you return to work for Wilson Group. So…”
Before Jacob could finish speaking, Claire asked her mom angrily, “Mom! The Wilson family bullied my father and they tried to snatch Charlie’s villa from us. Why should we go back to work for them?”
