Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 31
Elaine crouched on the floor, her body trembling violently. She closed her eyes tightly, waiting to be slapped by the muscular man, but the slap never came as she had expected.
She opened her eyes in confusion and was shocked!
Charlie, her good-for-nothing son-in-law, came out and held the man’s wrist!
She felt that her mind had gone kaput for the moment—she couldn’t process the thing that was happening right now. Why was the useless Charlie so brave out of sudden?
Don Albert couldn’t believe either that there’s someone dared to stand up for the d*mn old lady at a moment like this. He growled coldly, “Who are you? Do you have a death wish?”
Charlie smiled faintly. “You are Don Albert, aren’t you? You can beat the h*ll out of that b*stard, but do me a favor and don’t touch my mother-in-law!”
A layer of dark gloom shaded Albert’s face. “This old fart is your mother-in-law? Who do you think you are for me to do you a favor?”
Albert began to huff in wrath when he said it.
He was highly respected by many people in Aurous Hill, but he suffered immeasurable embarrassment today.
First, there was a foolish dude who called himself Kevin White yelling in front of him, then came the disgusting old coot that shouted along with him.
Next, this young dude came out of nowhere and made such an absurd demand! Did they really think that he, Don Albert Rhodes, was such a minion that they could push him around like a rag doll?
His face flushed with anger as he shouted to his men, “Beat the h*ll out of this snobbish thing!”
Charlie still wore the faint smile on his face and said, “Not so fast, let me make a call first and I’ll let him talk to you.”
He retrieved his phone and called Isaac, the general manager of Shangri-La.
Once the call was answered, the man on the other end of the line said respectfully, “Young Master, what can I do for you?”
Charlie said in a casual tone, “Do you know a man by the name of Albert Rhodes, a.k.a. Don Albert?”
Isaac laughed sheepishly and said, “Yes, I know him. They all say that he is the boss of the underworld, but to me, he is nothing but a small-time gangster.”
Then, he continued, “He’s been trying to curry favor with me when he knew that I work for the Wade family by asking me out to dinner and whatnot, but I’ve been ignoring him. Why? Do you know him?”
Charlie said indifferently, “Oh I see, that heck is trying to kill me.”
A loud thump was audible over the phone, the remark obviously irritated Isaac. “D*mn it! That b*stard! He’s wishing for his own death by provoking you! Where are you now? I’ll send someone over right away to cripple that b*stard!”
“I’ll pass the phone over to him, you can tell him yourself.”
Then, Charlie handed the phone to Albert and said, “Pick it up.”
Albert frowned curiously.
What was going on? From the looks of it, he didn’t seem like he was acting.
Did he really have a remarkable background that he was oblivious of?
Albert eyed Charlie from head to toe suspiciously. Charlie didn’t wear anything branded and his attire didn’t seem to even cost five hundred dollars. Even his phone was of a cheap brand. What was he capable of? What kind of person could he find as his support?
Despite the disdain, Albert took the phone reflexively and asked in a tentative tone, “Hi, I’m Don Albert, who are you? How dare you stand up for this man?”
Isaac on the phone screamed his lungs out, “Albert Rhodes! You f*cking bastard, are you out of your f*cking mind? How dare you provoke my young master! Believe it or not, I will bury your entire family of twenty-five alive tonight!”
