Ethan held her in a vice-like grip, and Janet could barely breathe. She tried wriggling out of his hold, but Ethan slung his leg around Janet, trapping her in place.

“I am having trouble breathing!” Janet kicked her legs, trying to free herself.

“But you’re still mad at me,” Ethan mumbled, pulling her impossibly closer. Janet could feel his hot breath blowing against her.

Her skin tingled, and she couldn’t think properly. “Gosh, you’re squeezing me. I can’t even speak properly,” she said, gasping for breath.

However, Janet suddenly remembered that Ethan was the illegitimate son of the Lester family. The cause of his mother’s d***h was still a mystery to all.

It must have been embarrassing for him to admit his identity. Janet felt he must have experienced a lot of setbacks ever since he was a child. Therefore, it didn’t seem strange for him to hold back many secrets.

Although Janet was still unhappy that Ethan was hiding something from her, she couldn’t help but feel sorry for him at the same time.

“Well, it’s a bit upsetting to know that you’re still in touch with your high school friend but haven’t uttered a word to me. It made me feel like you’re still attracted to her. She is an excellent woman, after all.” Considering Ethan’s family background, Janet felt sorry for him. She wanted to clarify everything once and for all.

Seeing that Janet didn’t resist anymore, Ethan held her tighter and kissed her cheek. “She is not my type.”

Then, he bit her neck and slid his hand under her dress. “I only want you!” he whispered into her ear.

“Don’t mess around. I can give you some time. But you have to tell me everything — soon, and no more secrets.” Janet slapped his hand and moved farther away — keeping a safe distance from him.

Although Janet felt sorry for Ethan, part of her still feared something was going on between him and Charis.

She didn’t want to sleep with him unless he told all his secrets to her.

Ethan chuckled and rolled back to his side of the bed.

He knew Janet very well. If she wasn’t in the mood, trying to seduce her would only make her hate him even more.

Ethan was determined to speed up his plan. He had to solve the Lester family’s problems as soon as possible. Janet was the most important person in his life, and he didn’t want to continue deceiving her. Ethan had many misgivings. He feared that exposing his identity to Janet before solving the problems would only put her in danger.

Both of them fell asleep soon after the conversation, their minds filled with problems of their own.

The next morning, Janet wanted to talk to Ethan, but just couldn’t find the right words to say. It felt as if an invisible wall had risen between them.

While brushing his teeth, Ethan wondered if he should do something to ease the tension. He didn’t want Charis to come in between them and ruin their lives. After all, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Janet.

“I’ll pick you up tonight?” Ethan thought he could take her out for dinner.

Janet was just about to leave for work. She didn’t like staying away from him either. Just as she was about to say yes, Ethan’s phone rang.

She quickly glanced at the screen and sneered. “You should pick her up and have dinner with her. After all, you two haven’t seen each other for a long time.”

Janet slammed the door and left.

Ethan sighed and picked up the phone. It was Charis.

“Brandon, I’ve arrived at the airport. The driver isn’t here. Can you please come and pick me up?”
