On the contrary, Elaine blamed herself for what had happened to Jason. She felt that he shouldn’t have received such a harsh treatment since he meant well in the first place.
So, when she received Jason’s call, she was over the moon, but also a little guilty.
Jason’s earnest voice sounded on the phone. “Auntie, I’m sorry for what happened at the hospital the other day. I was deceived and brought a fake doctor to treat Uncle. I’m very sorry and I haven’t gotten the chance to apologize to you…”
“Oh!” Elaine said. “Hey, Jason, what are you talking about! I have always been very grateful for your kind intentions, and I’m sorry for what happened to you. I should be the one to apologize to you!”
“No, Auntie, it’s my fault for not validating Dr. Lynch’s credentials first.”
Then, he added, “So, I would like to invite you for lunch someday so that I can apologize to you personally if that’s okay with you.”
Elaine was thrilled and overjoyed by the invitation!
Frankly speaking, she didn’t feel that Jason was wrong at all in this matter.
On the contrary, she felt that Jason was actually one of the victims of the incident. He had even broken his leg because of Charlie the loser. She felt sorry for the innocent man.
Moreover, Jason’s call made Elaine’s impression of him a little better.
Just look at him! He was rich, kind, generous, and so respectful toward her! He was an excellent husband for her daughter!
If she could just get her daughter to mingle with Jason more often and kick the ignorant Charlie out of her house, her daughter could marry a rich guy soon!
More importantly, the Grant family had a convention center where renovation projects would be humongous. If he was with her daughter, her daughter would get all the projects, wouldn’t she?
In fact, if she subcontracted the projects to other companies, she could earn a price difference there, couldn’t she?
This prospect was much better than when she was with Charlie the loser!
She concluded that it was extremely hard to find a nice guy like Jason, and was determined to seize this opportunity for her daughter!
She quickly said, “Oh, Jason, you’re too welcome! You don’t have to do that…”
“It’s no big deal, Auntie. This is what I should do!”
Jason heard the enthusiasm in her tone and quickly added, “Also, to express my sincerity, I’ve also prepared a million-dollar gift for you!”
A million-dollar gift?!
Elaine grinned from ear to ear instantly!
Wow! Jason was so kind and generous!
A million-dollar gift… she would be rich!
Hence, she hurriedly agreed to the invitation and said, “Jason, let me know the time and place, I’ll be there on time!”
Jason said with a smile, “Auntie, let’s meet at the Divine Lounge on Hazel Street. It’s the best seafood restaurant in Aurous Hill. The time will be noon, see you at the entrance then.”
“Okay!” Elaine answered delightedly.
Jason started again, “Auntie, please don’t tell Claire about our plan. I’m arranging an apology ceremony for her and I need your help!”
Elaine replied, “Of course! You young people are romantic all over! Okay! I promise I won’t spill the beans to her!”
