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
When Kathleen heard this, she instantly understood that Marianne was not crying because her cell phone had fallen. So, she said to Charlie, “Oh, Mr. Wade, you still don’t understand women. We are not as tough as boys, so you cannot simply come up with solutions. You have to help us solve the problem directly. I saw someone setting up a stall at the entrance of the mall opposite which is selling some cell phone accessories. Why don’t you hurry up and buy a cell phone case for Miss Marianne according to the model of her cell phone, then?”As soon as Charlie heard this, he then said without any hesitation, “Okay, you can accompany Miss Marianne first. I’ll go and buy it.”Upon saying that, Charlie got up and ran out.Once Charlie was far away, Kathleen held Marianne’s hand and smiled as she asked, “Did you just find out about Mr. Wade’s marriage? It’s okay. I already knew.”Marianne trembled and then looked up at Kathleen as she nodded lightly and said aggrievedly, “He never told me
Kathleen’s words really shocked Marianne deeply.She never expected that Kathleen, who was the head of the Fox family, could fall in love with a married man so calmly and emotionally.Moreover, it was not difficult to even hear a hint of humble feeling in her words at all.She suddenly admired Kathleen’s calmness. She felt that she was truly a thousand miles behind compared to Kathleen.However, she was still puzzled, so she asked Kathleen, “Miss Fox, since Charlie is already married, aren’t you worried that there will be no results in the future if you still continue loving him so much?”Kathleen smiled and said indifferently, “Emotions cannot be stopped. It’s just like some things where you can control yourself not to eat, but you cannot control the feeling of you wanting to eat.”After saying that, Kathleen stared at Marianne and joked, “By the way, you also know that he is married, so can you manage not to have any good feelings for him from now on, then? Please teach me how
“That’s fair. That’s fair indeed.” Marianne could not help but repeat herself.Then, she suddenly seemed to figure something out as she said, “Miss Fox, you’re right. It’s not wrong to fall in love with someone else, but it is most important to be open and honest...”Kathleen nodded and smiled as she asked, “So, how are you feeling now? Do you still feel that you’re wrong now?”Marianne pursed his lips and said softly, “I still feel that I’m wrong, but I feel much better now...”Kathleen sighed softly and smiled as she said, “Oh, if you feel that you’re wrong and cannot control how much you like Charlie, you will just have to adjust your mentality because you have too many competitors, and each of them are all incredibly powerful. I can’t even rank here as a member of the Fox family.”With that being said, Kathleen asked her, “Do you know why Ito-Schulz Ocean Shipping Group seems to be a joint venture between the Ito family from Japan and the Schulz family from Oskia but Charlie i
