Read The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 82
Charlie nodded. “Understood.”
The old man let out a deep sigh. Rubbing his face, he grumbled, “If I knew that you had such skill, I wouldn’t have rushed to you! Now, I’m not just tired to the bone, I was even slapped multiple times! Damn, how unlucky!”
He then continued, “Is my face still red?”
Charlie replied, “A little.”
The old man grumbled once more. “Tell your mother that I ran into a pole if she ever asks.”
Upon reaching home, Charlie immediately rushed to the supermarket to get some groceries and make dinner for the family.
He then called his wife, Claire Wilson, in case she was craving for something. However, it turned out that she had to plan an upcoming project with Doris Young that night and so, she had invited Claire to have dinner at Emgrand Group.
Upon hearing those words, Doris had tested him at the same time as well by saying, “Sir, the project is in progress, so your wife might be quite busy from now. I hope you don’t mind.”
Charlie was an understanding person, and knowing that the project was important to her, he replied, “The company had better serve good food and treat her well.”
Doris immediately replied, “Don’t worry, I’ll treat her to the best dinner the company has to offer.’
“Okay, good.” Charlie texted back. If his wife wasn’t going to be home, Charlie didn’t need to be too specific with the menu, thus, he randomly chose some ingredients and made a simple dinner for his in-laws.
After dinner, the old couple went out square dancing while Charlie, on the other hand, stayed at home and indulged in the wondrous world of.
Suddenly, he received a call from Douglas Adams.
Charlie was reluctant to take the call. This little brat was just so stubborn. Charlie had once given him advice out of good heart, but Douglas had just started yelling at him like a maniac. It had been rather infuriating.
However, on second thought, he was but a pitiful man. Hence, Charlie decided to pick up the call and asked, “What’s up?”
On the other end of the phone, Douglas was sobbing uncontrollably. “Charlie, my dearest brother! I’m so sorry, I have wronged you!”
Upon hearing his crying, Charlie’s expression softened and he asked, “You found out about the truth?”
Douglas cried, “After our fight, I felt more and more uneasy about it, so I followed the tracking system in her iPhone and ended up at a villa in the suburban areas. However, when I knocked on the door to catch the cheater, I was beaten up by the man’s chauffeur and butlers, and then I was sent to the hospital by 120…”
At this moment, Douglas broke down crying again. “Charlie, it was my fault for being so blinded, I was wrong! Please don’t be angry with me, you’re my best friend, my only friend! If you cut ties with me too, I won’t have anyone here in Aurous with me anymore…”
Charlie let out a sigh and said, “I don’t blame you. Which hospital are you admitted in right now?”
“I’m in Silverwing Hospital,” Douglas sobbed. “He fractured my legs with a baseball bat. The doctor said i wouldn’t be able to walk for a few days. Can you please help me sell the drawing you gave me the other day? I brought it along when I went to catch that cheater. I spent all of my money on the restaurant, I’m completely broke now, so I don’t have any money on me to pay for the hospital bills…”
As soon as he heard this, Charlie asked, “They didn’t give you any money for medical bills?”
“No…” Douglas let his words trail off.
“Did you call the police?”
“I did, but the police said that I was the one who broke into their house, they were just defending themselves…”
“How dare they!” Charlie was extremely infuriated. “Wait for me, I’ll be there in just a few minutes!”
