Ethan let out a startled gasp and almost broke the bowl in his hand. He took deep breaths and immediately calmed down.

“I’m just an illegitimate child of the Lester family. How could I have any kind of relationship with the CEO of the Larson Group?”

Ethan cleaned the last bowl, wiped it dry, and placed it on the cabinet above his head. Then he took the kitchen towel and carefully wiped his slender fingers.

Janet felt uncomfortable as she stared at his handsome face. The doubt in her heart seemed to grow with every passing moment.

The more she thought about it, the more she believed that Brandon and Ethan were related in some way.

Brandon was a good-looking man, and Ethan wouldn’t lose anything by being in a relationship with him.

Janet’s face reddened. She rested her hands on her hips and glared at him. “Are you two hiding something from me?”

Brandon was g*y, and that was why he didn’t seem interested in her. ‘Then why is he helping me time and again? Is he actually interested in Ethan? Is he helping me because I’m married to Ethan?’

“What could possibly happen between us?” Ethan’s eyes darkened as he strode toward her.

Janet involuntarily stepped backward and raised her hand to stop him. “Don’t come over. I need to sort my thoughts.”

She was still racking her brains to figure out what was going on.

Ethan had told Janet that he had talked to Brandon. That was how all her doubts started. It seemed suspicious because he should have had no chance to talk to Brandon. Ethan had not only contacted him, but also learned his s****l orientation. Janet couldn’t help but wonder if Ethan and Brandon shared a special relationship.

Besides, Ethan didn’t seem like an idler who wasted his time. There was an air of mystique around him. It was understandable for Brandon to have feelings for him.

Janet felt her guess was likely to be right.

Ethan’s heart was racing in his chest. Janet eyed him with suspicion. She looked doubtful, confident, disgusted, and sympathetic. The mixed reaction confused him more.

Ethan lifted Janet and threw her on his shoulder, ignoring her protests. “What the h**l are you thinking about?” he asked, patting her butt.

Janet was stunned when he put her down. Ethan cupped her face and kissed her. “Drop that look on your face. It turns me on.”

Janet snapped out of her trance and glared at him.

Ethan was domineering and always exuded a majestic aura. Janet couldn’t picture him having an affair with Brandon, yet that seemed like the only possibility.

She ignored Ethan’s words and asked, “What do you think of Brandon?”

“Hmm… not bad. He is an excellent businessman.” Ethan scratched his nose and felt that Janet was acting strange today.

“Don’t think you can fool me by pretending to be innocent. I know what you two are up to,” Janet said, arching an eyebrow.

His evasiveness irked her.

Ethan had been deliberately avoiding the question.

He had already conspired with others and fooled her once. Besides, Ethan was an effortless actor. She couldn’t tell whether he was lying or not. The man always had a straight face and effortlessly masked his emotions.

“What?” Ethan couldn’t understand what she was insinuating.

Tanet forced a smile at him. She had to be patient She would wait until Ethan exposed himself.

“Nothing. I was just joking. I’m going to take a shower.” She pursed her lips and pushed Ethan away from her.

It didn’t matter if he didn’t admit the truth. Janet planned to pay close attention to Ethan and Brandon in the future. She was determined to find the truth.
