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.
Marianne was surprised. She knew that Charlie was twenty-eight years old, so she could not help but ask with her eyes wide open in shock, “You were still working on a construction site six years ago?!”“Yes.” Charlie explained, “Six years ago, the engineering team that I was working in took over a new construction site. I happened to be appreciated by Party A by chance. He insisted on arranging for me to study at a university for more than a year. After that, he married his most beloved granddaughter to me...”Marianne stared at Charlie and blurted out, “You’re not joking with me, are you? Why would the boss treat you so well and marry his granddaughter to you?” Charlie smiled lightly and said, “It was actually a coincidence. His ancestors had always been loyal family servants of the Wade family, so he recognized my identity. Although I did not have anything at that time, he still wanted to give me a home in the real sense.”When Marianne saw Charlie’s heartfelt smile, she suddenl
Charlie was not very bright when it came to relationships.Even though he had been married to Claire for four years now, he had not really been in a relationship in the true sense.He had never had any conflicts with Claire, nor had he gotten angry or quarreled with Claire. His relationship had always been very calm.He naturally did not have any sensational love experience with the big ups and downs in his emotional experience.However, for masters of love, which one would not have experienced countless storms and battles? For those who were experienced, they could instantly tell that Marianne had fallen for Charlie at a glance. However, Charlie was an inexperienced man. In other words, he wouldn’t get the point even if the other party were to cry in front of him.So, when he saw Marianne crying, he quickly said, “Oh, isn’t it just because your cell phone is broken? It’s just a small matter. I will send you another one. Why are you crying because of that?” Marianne was a little
