The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 303
Harold smirked and said in a sarcastic tone, “Charlie, go ahead with your drama. I bet your so-called acquaintances are just some low-life gangsters and nobodies. Do you really think you’re so influential and powerful? I don’t believe you’re able to invite any prominent figures!”
Wendy chimed in the sarcastic bandwagon. “A loser like Charlie is best at bragging. If no one attends your opening ceremony, you and this office will become Aurous Hill’s laughing stocks. Let’s see how you’ll get jobs or projects then!”
Claire didn’t show any expression as she listened to the insults but anxiety slowly brewed in her heart.
To put it bluntly, opening ceremonies were occasions that displayed company owners’ network connections and resources.
If many guests were to attend the opening ceremony, it would show that the company had a strong business network and foundation especially if VIPs were among the guests. Such news would spread around their circle and many people would regard the company as reliable and trustworthy.
However, if they didn’t have any guests on the day, it was like making an announcement to the public that their company had no network connections and resources. No one would dare seek the company even for the tiniest project.
It would be a great pleasure if Emgrand Group could send someone to attend the opening ceremony, but Claire wasn’t certain if they would entertain her.
At that moment, Lady Wilson spoke. “Claire, look around you, it’s almost ten now but there’s no one here except us. I don’t think you can gain anything in this small office. Why don’t you return to Wilson Group and help us? Not only would you have a steady job but it’s also better than receiving cold stares from others.”
When the Wilson family found out that Claire’s company was about to open, they had contacted some previous partners who had good relationships with them and asked them not to attend her opening ceremony. They obliged after learning that Claire was part of the Wilson family and declared that they would not collaborate with her in the future.
That was also why Lady Wilson was confident that there would not be any distinguished guests today. It would devastate Claire even further and she would be able to control her better in the future!
Indeed, Claire was very anxious and agitated right now. She bit her lips and stomped nervously.
Charlie took her hand and said in an earnest tone, “Dear, so what if there aren’t any guests today? I’m here with you and that’s enough!”
Claire looked back at him, nodding with a smile and feeling a warmth wrapping her heart.
Lady Wilson, on the other hand, sneered and said, “Charlie, you’re overly confident, aren’t you? What good are you here? Can you bring big shots here? Can you get her projects and jobs? Without the support of Wilson Group, you’re driving yourself to a dead end!”
Charlie said arrogantly, “Claire’s company will definitely only get better! Wilson Group in its heyday is nothing to Claire, let alone Wilson Group that is on the verge of bankruptcy! To be more successful than she was with you guys is a piece of cake for Claire!”
“Huh, cocky fellow!”
Lady Wilson felt that she was greatly insulted upon hearing Charlie said that Wilson Group was on the verge of bankruptcy and Claire could do better than Wilson Group in its glorious moment! She stomped her cane to the floor angrily and growled, “You’re just a loser who married into our family, how dare you raise your voice here!”
Charlie smiled slyly. “Raise my voice? Haha, I’m just stating the facts. If you don’t believe me, let’s just wait and see!”
Harold sneered. “Alright, Charlie, we’ll wait and see if you can expand this company.”
The minutes passed by and the opening ceremony was approaching.
Claire was getting more and more flustered. She kept shifting her gaze between her watch and the main door.
Charlie tried to comfort her to no avail.
