Now, the Wilson Group was akin to a bag of rice with holes in it. To begin with, there was not much rice in it. However, the rice was now all rushing out of the bag, and the bag was almost empty!
What was even more annoying was the fact that her most beloved granddaughter, Wendy, had originally had the opportunity to marry Gerald from the White family. Yet, the White family had also decided to abandon the Wilson family.
Therefore, the Wilson family no longer had the support of the White family.
As she thought about it, Lady Wilson could not help but shed tears immediately.
Over the past few years, she had been in charge of taking care of the Wilson family and heading the operations of the Wilson Group. However, she had never expected the Wilson Group to end in this situation with her at the helm.
If this continued any further, the Wilson Group would not only have to shut down completely, but they would also face a huge amount of debt. If that happened, Lady Wilson was afraid that they might not even be able to keep this old villa of theirs!
All of this had happened because of her own greed and selfishness.
If she had not tried to seize the villa that the White family had given to Charlie in the first place, Jacob and Claire would not have disowned the Wilson family!
If Claire did not leave the Wilson Group, Emgrand Group would not have turned against the Wilson Group.
At this time, Christopher was also on the verge of collapse.
Their family business was at stake, his daughter had lost her happiness, his son had lost his future, and he had been repeatedly humiliated by that piece of trash, Charlie…
Christopher wanted to do something to help the Wilson family, but it seemed as though there was nothing he could do at all.
Wendy had been crying ever since she had come home, and this truly broke Christopher’s heart.
Therefore, he could not help but ask Lady Wilson, “Mom, is there honestly no hope for the Wilson family and the Wilson Group anymore?”
Lady Wilson shed a few tears before she said, “I do not know what else to do anymore. If we do not declare bankruptcy and close down the company, the amount of debt that will subsequently accumulate will unmistakably crush us…”
Christopher choked as he said, “Mom, can’t you ask some of your old friends for help? Why don’t you ask around and see if anyone is willing to invest a sum of money in the Wilson Group so that they can help us to pull through this period of difficulties?”
“Invest?” Lady Wilson asked with a bitter smile on her face. “Who would still dare to invest in the Wilson Group now that we have already been blacklisted by Emgrand Group? Those old friends of mine are all avoiding me, and none of them will answer my calls or reply to my text messages at all. I don’t think that there is truly anyone that we can call a true friend in this world! Everyone is just using one another for the benefits!”
Harold suddenly said, “Grandma, if you say that there are no friends in this world and that everyone is just using one another for benefits, then, how is Charlie friends with so many wealthy and powerful people? Moreover, those people sincerely respect him and even call him their master! What benefits could Charlie possibly give to them?”
At this time, Lady Wilson replied, “Even though Charlie is just a piece of trash, he is unmistakably good with his words. I heard that these wealthy and powerful people respect him and are so polite to him simply because he gives them some Feng Shui advice. I think they are all fools! Charlie is no different from those fake old fortune-tellers who sit under the trees by the roadside!”
Harold had a puzzled expression on his face as he asked, “If so, why do so many wealthy and powerful people believe in what he says?”
Lady Wilson replied, “They believe in him because he has not made a mistake yet! Charlie is just like those fake Feng Shui masters in the past who were all very good at fooling and deceiving people. However, at the end of the day, everyone discovered the truth and realized that they were just liars!”
As she spoke about this, the old lady continued speaking with a cold expression on her face. “In my opinion, Charlie will definitely make a mistake very soon. When that time comes, all these wealthy and powerful people will realize that they have been tricked and deceived by him. After that, they will surely teach him a lesson!”
Harold looked at his grandmother expectantly before he said, “I can’t wait! I can’t wait to see Charlie getting chopped up and fed to the dogs!”
Lady Wilson replied bitterly, “Yes! Don’t worry, that day will definitely come!”
