The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 326
As she thought about it, Claire calmed down a little before handing the cash cheque over to Charlie. “Keep it properly and make sure that you burn it for your dad tonight. Don’t mix it up with any other cash cheques in the future! Otherwise, who knows if something bad might happen?”
Charlie nodded in a hurry before he said, “Don’t worry, dear. I know I should be more careful in the future.”
After that, Charlie hurriedly took out the cheque for the one hundred and eighty thousand dollars before handing it over to Elaine and saying, “Mom, this is the real cheque. Here, take it!”
Charlie continued flattering Elaine as he said, “Mom! Fortunately, you realized my mistake! Otherwise, we would undoubtedly lose out on a lot of money if I burned the wrong cheque!”
Elaine glared at him furiously. If it weren’t for the one hundred and eighty thousand dollar cheque, she would not have let him off so easily.
However, who would say no to money? She had to take the cheque and keep the remaining one hundred and sixty thousand dollars for herself!
Charlie heaved a huge sigh of relief when he saw that Elaine had already taken the cheque from his hand. He had been too careless and almost caused a big accident because of his mistake. Fortunately, his brain was able to react fast enough…
Then again, his mother-in-law was a little too smart for her own good. If she found out that this one hundred million dollar cash cheque was real, she would definitely jump out of the window right now because she had made such a huge mistake!
Just as Charlie was feeling a little relieved, they suddenly heard an old and anxious voice coming from outside the ward. “Jacob! Jacob! My son, how are you?! Mom is here to see you!”
Charlie frowned as soon as he heard those words.
Shortly after, Lady Wilson walked into the ward with a walking stick in her hand, accompanied by Christopher, Harold, and Wendy.
Lady Wilson had an anxious and distressed expression on her face. Her eyes were bloodshot, and she looked as though she had just been crying.
As soon as she walked into the ward, she broke into tears as she hurried over to Jacob who was lying on the hospital bed. She kept sobbing as she said, “Jacob! Jacob, when I heard that you were in a car accident, I was so scared that I almost died of a heart attack. How are you feeling now? Are you okay?”
Even though Claire was still a little disgusted with this group of people, she did not want to turn them away because after all, they were here to visit her father. Therefore, she stepped forward before she said, “Grandma, my father is feeling much better already. Charlie invited a genius doctor over to heal dad’s injuries.”
Lady Wilson heaved a sigh of relief as she said, “That’s good. That is really good news.”
At this time, Jacob also replied, “Mom, don’t worry. I will not die so easily.”
To be honest, Jacob was still very dissatisfied with his own mother.
However, no matter unhappy or displeased he was with her, she was still his mother, and they would always be family. How could he possibly have no feelings for her at all?
Moreover, Jacob also felt very touched when he saw that his mother was so worried and concerned for him that she was crying so much.
Lady Wilson continued crying as she reprimanded herself and said, “Jacob, this is all my fault. I did not show you how much I cared for you and how much I loved you before this. After finding out that you had gotten into a car accident, I was so worried and afraid. I felt so many regrets because I was afraid that you would leave this world without ever finding out how much I loved you, my dear son.”
The old lady was crying and sobbing bitterly at this time. “Jacob, I am sorry that it seemed as though I did not care about you throughout all these years. It is not that I did not care about you. I was just very harsh on you because I wanted you to grow up and learn even faster. I am so sorry that you have had to suffer silently all this time. Please forgive your mother for being so harsh on you…”
Jacob felt his heart tightening and he subconsciously burst into tears.
He had always been complaining about his mother because he did not understand why his mother was always so biased and why she only loved and cared for his brother.
He did not understand why his mother would always support and encourage his brother, but no matter what he did, his mother always felt that he was wrong!
This hatred had already formed a knot in his heart after so many years.
However, after listening to his mother and seeing the tears that she was shedding because she had been so worried about him, the knot in his heart began to loosen immediately…
