Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 134
After getting dressed, Ethan took Janet to the Lind family’s villa. Behind them, his men dragged the driver with them.
“Who’s there?” The same arrogant servant was the one who answered the door.
It seemed that every living creature from the Lind family household-even the dogs they raised-would bully Janet whenever they crossed paths.
This servant however, was the sort who would bully the weak and submit to the strong. So as soon as she opened the door and saw the men in black standing at the door behind Janet and Ethan, her mouth snapped shut and she didn’t dare to insult Janet.
“Oh, uh… Come on in.”
At this time, Fiona was leisurely painting her nails while a soap opera blared from the TV in the background. She seemed quite happy and was humming a cheery tune under her breath.
Just a few days ago, she had found a rapist who had just been released from prison. She offered him a huge sum of money to pretend to be a taxi driver to lure Janet into her trap.
Such a desperado was greedy for money, and moreover, he had a criminal record. Fiona figured that he was definitely the right guy to teach that damned b***h a lesson. Then Fiona would help the man escape. No one would know that she was the mastermind behind this.
She got a message from the man earlier that he had Janet. But hours passed and Fiona still hadn’t gotten any more feedback from the driver, so she felt a little uneasy.
“Oh, relax, Fiona. You just need to wait a little bit longer.” She comforted herself and proceeded to paint her nails a bright red.
Suddenly, she heard a ruckus from the vestibule of the villa.
“What the h**l are you doing? Keep it down over there! Or else I’ll deduct your salary this month!” Fiona glanced at the door with disdain.
But her angry shouts was met with a nervous voice. The servant announced, “Mrs. Lind, Janet… she’s here.”
Before Fiona could react, Janet and Ethan strode in, followed by several burly men. They dragged in the driver she had hired with them.
When Fiona’s eyes landed on the driver kneeling on the ground, her body went stiff, as though she had been struck by lightning.
All color had drained from the man’s face, and his lips were cracked and bleeding. It was clear that he had been tortured senselessly.
“Why the h**l did you let them in?!” Fiona yelled at the servant in a panic.
Wide-eyed, the servant didn’t dare to answer. Fiona took a deep breath and feigned a sense of calm. “What’s the meaning of this, Janet?”
Janet glared at Fiona murderously. Her chest heaved violently from anger. Pointing a finger at the driver, she shouted, “He admitted to everything. You hired him to rape me!”
Fiona’s eyes went as wide as saucers and she pretended to be innocent. “What nonsense are you talking about? I don’t even know this man! What evidence do you have? If you keep this up, I’ll sue you for defamation!”
“Do whatever you want,” Janet said fearlessly, her eyes flashing dangerously. “I don’t need to show you any evidence. Go ahead and call the police. They’ll find the evidence and convict you for me.”
Bernie was idly flipping through a newspaper on the balcony when he heard the commotion in the living room. Confused, he went in to see what was going on. “What are you talking about, Janet? Fiona is a sweet, kind-hearted woman who doesn’t even have the heart to k**l a cockroach. How could she do such an evil thing?”
“Is that so? Do you really believe that she’s kind?” Janet sneered, her voice riddled with icy disdain. “How ironic! A woman who can’t k**l a cockroach is cruel enough to try to k**l me. You should really open your d**n eyes and look at the woman in front of you carefully. Well, if you’re not going to admit to your crimes, I’ll just call the police.”
As she spoke, Janet pulled out her phone and started dialing 911.
Fiona was so frightened that her face turned deathly pale and her posture grew unsteady.
She knew what she had done more than anyone else. Unfortunately for her, the driver had been caught and forced into admitting everything. If the police came to investigate and the truth was brought to light, she would definitely be sentenced to jail.
And by then, everything would be over.
Fiona’s arrogance vanished. She had no choice but to beg for mercy. She fell to her knees and grabbed Janet’s arm, crying and begging her desperately.
“Janet, I was wrong! I must’ve been out of my mind at the time! Please let me go this time for the sake of our family bond! We adopted you and took you in after all!”
