Charlie ordered her to keep an eye on Loreen after she started working and to always report to him if there were any abnormalities. After talking to Doris, Charlie took a taxi to the airport to pick Loreen up. When he was at the airport, Charlie disembarked the taxi and was about to go to the arrival hall when a Mercedes- Benz G-Class braked abruptly and stopped in front of him. Harold, Claire’s cousin, stretched his head out of the car window and frowned when he saw Charlie. “Why are you here?”
“I’m here to pick Claire’s friend up. Why are you here?” Charlie frowned too when he saw the familiar faces sitting in the car besides Harold, there were Gerald and Wendy.
Harold sneered. “Do you mean Miss Thomas? We’re here to entertain her, you’re nothing but redundant, get lost!”
Charlie snorted indifferently and said, “You get lost.” Thus, Charlie ignored them and walked directly into the airport’s arrival hall.
Harold’s face turned into an ugly shade of red and he was about to swear at Charlie when Wendy tugged his arms hurriedly and said, “Hey, Miss Thomas will be here soon. Grandma reminded you to leave a good impression on her, remember? If you can make her your wife, your status in our family will be unmatched! Just leave the loser alone for now.”
Harold gaped in surprise, processing his sister’s sense of urgency. He had almost forgotten the main reason he was here today. In fact, welcoming Loreen to the city was the second agenda. His most important duty was to leave a good impression on her and tackle her heart. The Thomas family was prominent and influential in Eastcliff. If he could be with her, his status would skyrocket and the Wilson family would have a great boost in their reputation. Hence, he endured his displeasure with Charlie. They hurriedly got out of the car and rushed to the arrival hall.
Right at this moment, a conspicuous young and elegant lady stood among the crowd. Her long maroon hair cascaded on her back like a waterfall and she wore a white dress that outlined her exquisite body. She was wearing sunglasses, but that couldn’t conceal her alluring beauty. Her skin was as smooth and white as a porcelain china doll with her fiery-red lips. Upon a closer look, her facial features and physique were by no means worse than Claire’s, and in fact, they had their own merits in terms of their beauty standards.
Everyone who waited outside the arrival hall focused their gazes on her for a stunning moment. Harold was equally dumbfounded by the sight. Even Gerald, who was there as a plus one, was amazed by her beauty. He couldn’t help but sigh. “She really lives up to the reputation of the daughter of Eastcliff’s prominent family. Her beauty and temperament are extraordinary.”
At this time as well, Loreen saw them among the crowd, so she quickly strode across the people as she waved at them. “Harold, Wendy, and also Charlie, hey, long time no see!”
Harold felt a fiery flame slowly burst inside his heart. He uttered swiftly, “Hey, Loreen, long time no see. You’ve become more beautiful now.”
Charlie smiled politely and added, “Hi, it’s been a while.”
Harold interjected, “Loreen, I specifically booked a suite at the best hotel in Aurous Hill knowing that you’re coming, to welcome you to our city. Come, let’s go.”
Loreen glanced at Charlie before she said to Harold apologetically, “Harold, I’m so sorry, I’ve agreed to Claire and Charlie’s invitation in advance. Let’s take a rain check on the drink, shall we? I’ll stay in Aurous Hill for a long time, there are plenty of chances for us to meet.”
A layer of irritating wrath slowly built in Harold’s heart, replacing the passionate flame earlier. Charlie the loser had come to ruin his important moment on such a crucial day, he was the worst! Hence, he said in a sarcastic tone, “Loreen, I’ve booked a suite at Heaven Springs, the most famous restaurant in Aurous Hill, just for you. By the way, the suite I reserved is the Golden Suite with a minimum spending of three hundred thousand dollars!” He glared at Charlie contemptuously and said with a vicious grin, “I wonder which restaurant did my lowly cousin- in-law book? It would be very disrespectful and insolent if he’d simply booked a mediocre place!”
