The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 235
When Claire suddenly questioned her, Charlie’s mother-in-law, Elaine, lost her temper and said, “You’re still the granddaughter of the Wilson family no matter what happens! Besides, your grandmother has already apologized to me and admitted that she acted that way in a moment of confusion. She said that Harold was the one who instigated the discord and she has already punished him severely. What else are you dissatisfied about?”
Claire replied angrily, “So what if they apologized to us? I understand my grandmother’s character and personality. Even if she apologized, it was definitely not a sincere apology! She’s only apologizing because she wants me to return to Wilson Group and fix the collaboration issues with Emgrand Group!”
Elaine tried to persuade Claire at this time. “Don’t think so badly of your grandmother! We’re still family no matter what happens! How could you still hate her after so long?”
“I am not related to anyone in the Wilson family!” Claire replied angrily before she continued, “I’ll never go back to work for the Wilson Group!”
“What do you mean by that?” Elaine said in dissatisfaction. “Your grandmother has already realized her mistake. Do you really want an old woman like her to apologize to you?”
After that, Elaine continued speaking, “In order to prove her sincerity, your grandmother has also given me a gold necklace and two jade bracelets…”
“Mom, you can just admit that the only reason you want me to go back and work for the Wilson Group is because you’re greedy and you want to keep the jewelry Grandma has given you!”
Claire replied in a frustrated tone before she ignored Elaine and walked to her bedroom immediately.
Charlie followed behind Claire without saying anything at all.
At this time, Elaine started complaining in the living room. “Look at your daughter!” Unexpectedly, Jacob ignored her too as he turned around and walked away.
In the bedroom, Claire was still very frustrated and she could not help but complain to Charlie. “I really did not expect the Wilson family to use jewelry to win over my mother. Don’t you know that my mom is always very materialistic? As soon as the Wilson family gave her some jewelry and said some nice things to her, she got overwhelmed by greed and instantly forgot how they had insulted us back then!”
Even though Charlie was also very unhappy, he knew that he should not be speaking ill of his mother-in-law. Therefore, he could only persuade Claire, “When we fell out with the Wilson family, your mother was not there with us. Therefore, she doesn’t know how despicable the Wilson family are.”
At this time, Claire quickly asked Charlie, “Then, what should I do if my mother wants me to go back and work for Wilson Group?”
Charlie replied, “You should consider what you really want and make this decision on your own. I will support whatever decision you make.”
Claire nodded before she replied firmly, “I think so too! I want to start my own business so I’ll be able to succeed based on my own abilities!”
Charlie smiled before he replied, “I think that’s a good idea. It would be great for you to start your own business and advance in your own career.”
As they continued talking, Charlie thought that he would invite Graham from the Quinton family, Isaac from Shangri-La, the mobster boss, Albert, Jasmine from the Moore family and Zeke from the White family out for a meal so that he could introduce Claire to them. After all, he needed them to help him to look out for his wife when she started her own business in the future.
As he thought about this, Charlie suddenly received a phone call from Jasmine. Jasmine greeted him respectfully over the phone and said, “Mr. Wade, it’s me, Jasmine. I was just wondering if you’re busy now?”
Charlie replied, “No, Miss Moore. What is the matter?”
Jasmine quickly replied, “Mr. Wade, my grandfather has fallen ill recently and no one can tell what’s wrong with him. I was wondering if you could make some time to come over to my grandfather’s house and take a look at him?”
After that, Jasmine said again, “Please don’t worry. We’ll definitely pay you well for your consultation fees.”
Charlie thought about it for a moment. Jasmine was the eldest daughter of one of the most prestigious families in Aurous Hill. When Claire started her own business in the future, he might need to ask Jasmine for help from time to time. Therefore, Charlie quickly agreed to help her without any hesitation at all. “Alright then, I will come over tonight.”
Jasmine quickly replied gratefully, “Okay! I’ll pick you up tonight.”
After hanging up the phone, Charlie turned around and told Claire, “I will be out with a friend tonight so I won’t be having dinner at home.”
Claire nodded and she did not ask much. However, she reminded Charlie, “Do not give anyone anymore Feng Shui advice when you’re out. Otherwise, you will be in a lot of trouble if anyone calls you a liar.”
Charlie smiled before he replied, “Don’t worry, Claire. I know what I should be doing.”
