The old lady looked at Charlie and was very surprised when she saw that Charlie was so young, but she still said respectfully, “Young Master Wade, I would like to thank you for your great kindness on behalf of our whole family!”Charlie hurriedly said, “You’re welcome, Granny. Uncle Janus was my father’s best friend before he died. These are the things that I should be doing.”Having said that, Charlie then asked with concern, “How are you feeling now? Are you feeling any obvious discomforts?” The old lady was stunned for a moment and said in surprise, “Oh... after hearing you say so, I really don’t seem to be feeling any discomfort anywhere at all...”After that, the old lady tried to sit up on her own, and she felt that her body was very light. Previously, it was as if she had lost half of her life due to a stroke, but she could not feel any signs of a stroke at all now. She was also in a surprisingly good state in general. Several of her children were also shocked and speechl
Meanwhile, the Long family had also returned to their mansion in Steerlain Island by car.On the way back, Shawn and Jenna sat in one car while Marianne drove her own Tesla.When Shawn had seen that his daughter was in a trance and seemed lost, he had wanted her to go back with him in one car, but Marianne had refused. Marianne was upset and wanted to be alone, but to her surprise, all she could think of was Charlie on the way back. She subconsciously thought of the bits and pieces of her memories with Charlie ever since they had met. The more she thought about it, the more she felt that Charlie was already embedded in her heart.However, when she thought of how Charlie had been deceiving her from the beginning to the end, she could not help but have even more complaints against Charlie. Fortunately, although she was upset, she did not encounter any unexpected incidents on the way back, and she drove her car home safely. After she had parked the car, Shawn looked as if he ha
In the past, he had always had a superior attitude when facing every woman. He always felt that these women were the objects of his favor and that it was their extreme luck for them to be able to get his attention. It was also because of such an overbearing mentality that he could indulge in women for so many years. Although Jenna was still his favorite amongst all women, he still looked down on Jenna.Jenna had followed Janus to the United States back then. To Shawn, this felt like his favorite toy had been stolen from him. After Jenna had come back, he had simply wanted to keep this lost and found toy by his side forever. However, if one were to ask if he truly loved Jenna, his answer would be no. Even though he really did like Jenna very much back then, after Jenna had run away once, he had always kept himself under control, and he had not invested too much in this woman.He had been doing it very well over the years.Although Jenna was now the respectable Mrs. Long, she
When Marianne heard this, her expression immediately became a little abnormal as she stammered and said, “Why should I find out more information about him?”Shawn looked at Marianne and smiled as he said, “Marianne, you have to remember something. If you want a relationship between a man and a woman to develop well, you should not have the mentality of being vindictive and angry. If he cares for you, you have to respond better to him, and if he ignores you, you’ll have to bite the bullet and take the initiative to look for him. You cannot be angry and ignore him just because you’re feeling a little emotional!”Having said that, Shawn then said again, “If he does not look for you and if you don’t look for him, or if you put on such a gesture if he comes looking for you, even if you are fated or were given the opportunity, it would all be in vain, then!”Marianne instantly felt as if Shawn’s words were like knives stabbing her heart, but she was a strong woman, and she continued quibb
Charlie was suddenly a little embarrassed. Marianne had originally agreed to go out to the food street for dinner with him again tonight. Although Charlie had verbally made an agreement with Marianne, he intended to stop seeing Marianne after resolving his issues with Shawn to avoid any embarrassment. Charlie was originally planning to let Shawn explain his identity to Marianne after he was done punishing Shawn. However, he had never expected that Marianne would suddenly appear at the airport in the afternoon. Charlie felt that he had not only lied to Marianne, but he had also taught her father a lesson. Therefore, Marianne would definitely hate him, so he could not help but feel somewhat guilty toward her. Unexpectedly, Kathleen took the initiative to mention that she wanted to try out some street food in Hong Kong, which instantly caused Charlie to think of Marianne again.When Kathleen saw that Charlie was not answering, she asked curiously, “Mr. Wade, are you listening t
Charlie’s first reaction was to be surprised when he saw Marianne’s slender figure as she stood not far away.Immediately afterward, he looked at Kathleen and asked in confusion, “What’s going on here, Miss Fox?”Before Marianne could reach them, Kathleen smiled slightly and said in a low voice, “I invited Miss Long to come here. Sorry for not telling you about this in advance, Mr. Wade.”Having said that, Kathleen then added, “I saw that there seemed to be some misunderstanding between you and Miss Long. So, I thought that it would be great if you and Miss Long could have the opportunity to sit down and have a good chat. Otherwise, if we were to go back tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, you would not have such a good opportunity to be able to clear up the misunderstanding with Miss Long face to face.”Charlie really did not expect that Kathleen would be so meticulous in her observations and would actually be so considerate.However, although Charlie was surprised, he also felt
Nevertheless, her real intention was to talk to Kathleen about Charlie. On one hand, she wanted to get to know Charlie as a person, and on the other hand, she wanted to seize the opportunity to buffer her own mentality. She was planning to take the initiative to look for Charlie to have a chat with him after she had calmed down. However, when she suddenly saw that Charlie was there, she suddenly became restrained again, and she did not know how to break the awkward atmosphere with Charlie. In the end, it was Kathleen, the smart woman, who had to solve the problem. She did not bother explaining to them the reason for the other party’s appearance here. Instead, she casually smiled and said, “Miss Long and Mr. Wade, both of you should have a good heart-to-heart talk. You both actually chose the same location. You couldn’t have discussed this in advance, right?”Her sentence not only put aside the fact that she had acted as the middle-man to bring them together, but it also eased th
Marianne did not know why, but the moment she saw Charlie, all the complaints and blame that she had had in her heart disappeared instantly.She even felt a little ashamed when Charlie apologized to her. She felt ashamed because Charlie had come from so far to save Janus, but her father had wanted to take Janus’s life merely because he had wanted to preserve his own image and reputation. What was right and wrong was clear at a glance here.Charlie had never liked to owe anyone anything. So, when he saw that they were finally speaking up, he felt a lot more relaxed. He then said to Marianne, “Miss Marianne, since this matter has already passed, let’s just start anew from now on.”“Okay.” Marianne nodded gently. She then remembered that Charlie had spoken to her father about the food street in the afternoon. So, she asked curiously, “Mr. Wade, why did you suddenly mention the food street to my father in the afternoon? Could it be that he had some other plans related to it?”“Yes.
