The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 341
Wendy ran out of the house after getting slapped by Lady Wilson. However, Christopher stopped her before she could run out of the courtyard.
Christopher persuaded her to come back into the house, but she refused to do so. Wendy felt that the reason why she had ended up this way was because of Lady Wilson. If it weren’t for her, would she be in such a miserable state, then?
Thus, Wendy was very angry at this time and wanted to run as far away from home as she possibly could.
However, she dispelled that idea when she heard her father’s words.
At this time, Christopher said earnestly, “Wendy, where are you going to go if you run away from home? You don’t even have a job, and you will have nowhere to live outside! After all, you are a girl, and it is impossible for you to go out to work so that you can rent a place to live now, right? I know that your grandma is wrong, but what else can we do besides sticking to your grandmother? After all, she is still the head of the Wilson family!”
Wendy was silent for a moment as she mulled over her father’s words.
Sure enough, if she decided to leave the Wilson family villa, she would have nowhere else to go. Moreover, Wendy knew that she would definitely be made a laughingstock if the second young lady of the Wilson family was caught wandering on the streets with nowhere to go.
Therefore, she could only say aggrievedly, “Dad! Grandma is just too domineering and authoritative! I cannot tolerate her anymore. Why don’t we move out..”
Christopher sighed before he said, “Move out? If we move out now, we will have nothing left! Your grandmother can only live for a few more years, at most. Once she passes away, the Wilson family villa and the rest of the assets belonging to the Wilson family will belong to us, then. This is our house. If we decide to move out now and your second uncle and his family suddenly decides to move back into the Wilson family villa, wouldn’t we lose everything, then? We will have nothing left if that happens.”
Wendy came to a sudden realization when she heard this.
Even though Claire’s family currently did not have a good relationship with Lady Wilson, if they moved back into the Wilson family villa, they would definitely try to take advantage of the situation and keep the villa for themselves!
As she thought about it, Wendy burst into tears again. After that, she said, “But I cannot live like this anymore! I can’t stand her any longer…”
Christopher had no choice but to comfort his daughter. “Don’t think about it anymore. After all, we have a guest in our house now. We cannot leave a bad impression and appear as a joke to our guest. After he leaves, I will give you some money so that you can travel and relax, okay?”
Wendy nodded slightly as she agreed with her father’s suggestion. “Okay, then..”
When Wendy finally followed her father back into the villa, Lady Wilson had just sent Kenneth into the guest room and was walking down the stairs.
As soon as Lady Wilson saw that Wendy had returned, she rushed toward her before speaking apologetically, “Wendy, I was wrong earlier. I am sorry that I acted on impulse and hit you. I want to apologize to you and tell you how sorry I am. I hope that you will be able to forgive me.”
Lady Wilson was hoping that Wendy would be able to change Kenneth’s mind. Therefore, the first thing that she did as soon as Wendy came back was to take the initiative to apologize to her.
Wendy also did not expect her grandmother to take the initiative to apologize to her. In fact, it was really rare for her tough and arrogant grandmother to apologize to anyone. Therefore, Wendy felt much better after her apology.
Then, Lady Wilson took Wendy’s hand before she brought her to the sofa in the living room. After that, she said earnestly, “Wendy, do you know that our family is facing a huge crisis now?”
Wendy nodded. “Yes, grandma. I know that.”
“Since the White family annulled your engagement to Gerald, everyone in Aurous Hill thinks of you as a joke. Although grandma does not want to mention this, this is the truth, and you should know it too, right?”
As soon as she heard Lady Wilson’s words, Wendy started crying again.
Everyone in Aurous Hill knew that she was the woman who had been rejected by the White family. Even if she wanted to marry another rich man, it would be absolutely impossible.
At the very least, it would be impossible for her to do so in Aurous Hill.
