What’s Your Relationship With Brandon

“What could I possibly hide from you?” Ethan shrugged and continued to put the dishes into the sink. Although he seemed calm, his heart was racing in his chest.

Janet was a smart woman, and hiding the truth from her wasn’t easy.

Ethan hoped for her to stop overanalyzing everything and just let him help her.

“I mean, did you go to see Brandon again? Otherwise, why would he help me again?” Janet frowned and studied his face. Something seemed fishy.

Why would Brandon find the fraud group that had deceived Hannah and eradicate it without Janet informing him about the details?

Janet didn’t doubt Brandon’s capability but was still confused about his intentions.

Ethan took out a can of beer from the fridge, opened it, and gulped it down. Leaning against the fridge, he cast a sidelong glance at Janet. “Brandon is different from us. People like him always have everything planned. We can hardly find out what he is thinking. Perhaps he thinks you’re an asset to the company. That’s probably why he is being friendly with you. Helping you might be an investment that could reap a lot of benefits in the future.”

Janet took what he said with a pinch of salt. Ethan’s expression was unreadable. She couldn’t tell if he was telling the truth or hiding something from her.

She opened and closed her mouth, not knowing what to say. Ethan could tell that she still doubted him. He sighed and sat beside her. “I think you’re overthinking this. Your boss thinks highly of you; I don’t think he has any hidden motive. You have to be proud of yourself.”

“I just want to know the truth. Ethan, tell me. I won’t be mad at you even if you meet Brandon without telling me.” Janet held Ethan’s arm and sized him up.

Ethan had always been a determined man. Garrett always considered him to be a sophisticated man. No one in the business world could read his mind, but his judgment was always right.

Ethan could tell what Janet was thinking.

“You are imagining things. It wasn’t easy for me to meet him the last time. After all, he is the president of the Larson Group. I can’t meet him as and when I like.” Ethan rubbed her back. Then, he gently slid his hand down and massaged her waist. “Don’t overthink this.” He leaned closer and whispered in her ear, “This issue is solved. You should be happy. There is no point in worrying about it now. Do you want to rest for a while? I’ll go and wash the dishes, babe.”

Janet pursed her lips and fell silent.

Ethan sounded so gentle and sweet at the moment. Janet liked the way he treated her now. After all, she was attracted to Ethan.

“All right. You can go now.”

Ethan breathed a sigh of relief, pecked on the corner of her lips, and went into the kitchen.

Janet was a little tired. She hadn’t managed to sleep well ever since she moved to Ethan’s room. She stretched her sore back and glanced at Ethan, who was busy watching the dishes. An involuntary smile stretched across her lips.

Ethan was charming and didn’t shy away from doing household chores. Anyone would fall in love with him.

The smile on Janet’s face froze as she thought about something.

Ethan sensed her burning gaze. He smiled to himself without looking up. “Are you supervising if I’m properly washing the dishes or not?”

However, there was no response from Janet. He frowned and looked back.

Janet was standing at the kitchen door, staring at him intently.

“Ethan!? What’s your relationship with Brandon?”
