Read The Amazing Son in Law [by Lord Leaf] Chapter 217 – At noon the next day.
Charlie Wade and Claire Wilson Wilson went to the Maple Hotel by car.
The Maple Hotel was not the most expensive in Aurouss Hilll, but it was among the most exclusive and luxurious in town, indicating Douglas’s sincerity in treating them.
In fact, he spent quite lavishly on this meal as he had booked the premium dining suite in the hotel. It was luxuriously decorated and was spacious enough to accommodate twenty people with the minimum spending of seven to eight thousand dollars.
Many people had already arrived in the suite when Charlie Wade and Claire Wilson Wilson arrived. Besides Douglas and Loreen, there were also a few college mates.
Loreen hadn’t had a good time lately.
She had come to Aurouss Hilll from Eastcliff for some time now for the main purpose of getting to know the chairman of Emgrand Group. However,
she had never had a chance to even see the man himself after working for so long in the company.
Moreover, although she had gotten to stay in the office when she was the administrative director, after she was transferred to the sales department, she had spent less and less time in the office which critically reduced her chances of meeting the chairman.
However, she had stumbled into another dilemma now. She had been obsessed with the mysterious man ever since she was rescued by him the other day. If truth be told, she even felt as though she had fallen in love with him at first sight. Hence, her desire to meet the chairman was not as great as before, and on the contrary, she was more eager to meet her savior.
Yet, she would never have guessed that the chairman of Emgrand Group and her mysterious savior was actually the same guy—Charlie Wade.
As Charlie Wade and Claire Wilson Wilson walked into the suite, Douglas rose to his feet quickly and greeted them, “Hey, buddy! Claire Wilson Wilson! Welcome! Come, have a seat.”
Douglas greeted the couple very respectfully. His heart brimmed with admiration and appreciation toward this good buddy of his.
Loreen looked a little haggard and depressed as she held a lot of secrets inside her. When she saw Claire Wilson Wilson, suddenly, she had the urge to spill the beans.
She barged forward, and holding onto Claire Wilson Wilson’s wrists, she said weakly, “Claire Wilson Wilson, come, sit with me. I want to tell you something.”
Claire Wilson Wilson replied with a warm smile, “What is it? What happened to you? Why do you look so listless?”
Loreen sighed. “It’s all because of my mysterious savior! You know what, I think I’ve fallen in love with him! I see him everywhere… Whenever I close my eyes, I see him. He is even in my dreams, but I can’t find him! What should I do…”
“Umm… I don’t know how, either…” Claire Wilson Wilson shrugged helplessly. Ever since Loreen had been rescued by that mysterious guy, she had wanted to find him and marry him, but where and how could you find a guy amongst the crowd of people? That was like finding a needle in a haystack.
Cold sweat drenched Charlie Wade’s forehead as he listened to the ladies’ conversation. Had Loreen truly fallen in love with him? That was preposterous! He could never ever let Loreen know that he was her savior, otherwise, all h**l would break loose!
After a few drinks and a hefty meal, Douglas stood up, beginning to liven up the atmosphere. “Guys, thank you all for coming today! I would like to make a toast to you all! Cheers!”
Then, he drank bottoms-up.
A few of them who were quite close to him also yelled, “Cheers!”
Charlie Wade smiled lightly and took a sip from his wine glass.
“Douglas, I heard that you are a big boss now, with the fancy new restaurant of yours and two million in cash in your hands. In fact, you know someone from the underworld, don’t you? You must look after us in the future.”
A coquettish woman dressed in enchanting clothes with heavy makeup on her face smiled charmingly.
