At this time, Claire suddenly asked, “Don’t you have to go back to work?”
Loreen stuck out her tongue before she said, “Well, my job was originally to run around outside. Moreover, I have never met the chairman of Emgrand Group before ever since I started working there. Therefore, he has no way to control me at all. In a way, I am actually an unsupervised employee. So, I guess it is okay for me to skip work occasionally.”
After that, Loreen spoke up once again. “Since both of you have something on, I will send you home first.”
Upon arriving at the carpark, Charlie realized that Don Albert was standing next to Loreen’s car. Moreover, the spot where Loreen’s car had been badly scratched yesterday had also been repaired.
When Albert saw them walking toward the car, he immediately greeted Charlie respectfully. “Mr. Wade, did you have fun?”
“Not bad.” Charlie looked at the rear of the car for a few moments, and when he realized that it was looking as good as new, he knew that Albert had already arranged for it to be repaired. “You did very well.”
Albert hurriedly said, “Mr. Wade, I happened to know someone working at a nearby auto repair shop. Therefore, I asked some of the workers to come over with some tools to repair the car. Are you going home now? Do you need me to send a few people to escort you home?”
Charlie waved his hand quickly as he turned down Albert’s proposal. “No, you can get busy with your own things now. We can go back on our own.”
“Alright then, Mr. Wade. Please do not hesitate to call me anytime if you need anything else,” Albert replied as he arched his hands and bowed respectfully before he left with his men.
Claire could not help but shake her head helplessly as she stared at this scene. After that, she said to Charlie, “I truly do not know what is up with these people and why are they treating you so respectfully.”
Charlie smiled before he said, “Can’t it be just because I have my own abilities?”
Claire gave him a blank look before she replied, “Do you mean your Feng Shui mastery skills? The more they believe in you now, the more vicious the revenge they are going to exact on you when they find out that they have been fooled by you in the future! You should really be more careful.”
Charlie simply smiled without arguing with Claire.
After that, the three of them got into the car before heading back to the city.
On the journey back, as Loreen was driving, she suddenly asked, “Claire, are both of you going home, or are you headed elsewhere?”
“We’re going home,” Claire replied immediately. “You should also go home and rest so that you will be fully re-energized for work on Monday!”
Loreen nodded before she said, “Alright, then. I will send both of you home before I head back to the hotel.”
Claire was surprised by this and asked Loreen, “Are you still staying at the hotel?”
Loreen hummed as she said, “Where else would I be living if not at the hotel? I have been living at Shangri-La all this time.”
Claire asked again, “Isn’t it very lonely for you to be living at the hotel all by yourself? Why don’t you buy a house in Aurous Hill instead?”
Loreen smiled bitterly before she replied, “It’s more troublesome and even lonelier for me to buy a house here. It’s much better for me to live at the hotel. After all, there is someone to clean up my room every day and I can also call for room service and food delivery whenever I feel like eating. Moreover, I can even get someone to do my laundry for me and send it up to my room when it’s dried and ironed!”
For people like Loreen who came from a rich family, they often relied on spending money to save time and effort.
Claire continued asking, “Then, what is going on with your family? Has your cousin been targeting you lately?”
“Not anymore,” Loreen replied immediately. “However, I have already filed a lawsuit with my family, but they said that there is insufficient evidence, and they cannot be sure that everything that I said is true. Nevertheless, my cousin seems to have stopped trying to do anything funny and I have a feeling that he won’t dare to do anything to me anymore.”
As she said that, Loreen looked at Charlie who was sitting in the backseat through the rearview mirror and made a ‘thank you’ gesture at him.
She knew very well that Charlie was the one who had warned those in the Thomas family who were targeting her at that time. This was the reason why they had been so restrained lately.
Therefore, Loreen really could not keep count of the number of times that Charlie had already saved her.
Claire suddenly felt very distressed for Loreen. Her best friend had come to Aurous Hill to work and yet, she could only live in a hotel by herself all this while. Moreover, she was also betrayed, targeted, and hunted down by her own family…
As she thought about this, Claire suddenly said to Loreen, “Loreen, the White family gave Charlie a villa at Thompson First. When the renovation for the villa is completed, you can move in and live with us!”
“Really?” Loreen asked as she was very excited at this point.
Claire smiled before she replied, “Of course! You’re my best friend, Loreen, so why would I possibly lie to you?”
