Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 206
Janet had been thinking about Charis ever since Ethan told her about this woman.
Charis worked for the Larson Group and was about to return from abroad, which meant they would be seeing each other often.
“You don’t look well today. Didn’t you sleep well last night? Today is a big day. Cheer up!” Gerda patted Janet’s shoulder.
The two had become close again after the news about the fraud group got televised.
Janet felt it was normal for Gerda to misunderstand her after hearing the rumors because the two had become friends only after Janet joined the company. After all, Gerda didn’t Janet well enough.
“Big day?” Janet looked listless.
“Miss Turner is finally returning to the company today after three years abroad. She is a legend. I heard she and Mr. Larson had started the company together — she was one of the core founding members. Later, she left the country to explore the overseas market. She is only about four or five years older than us. I admire her a lot!” Gerda adored Charis and spoke at length about her, oblivious to the look on Janet’s face.
Janet’s lungs constricted. It felt as if a giant rock was sitting on her chest. “She sounds like an amazing woman,” she said, forcing a smile.
When Janet returned to her desk, she heard everyone talking about Charis.
Just then, the glass door of the department flew open, and everyone unanimously turned around.
A graceful woman walked in, surrounded by all the senior executives of the company. A beautiful smile graced her lips, revealing her pearly teeth. She was wearing a simple black suit paired with exquisite makeup. She looked calm and confident with an air of authority.
Janet’s colleagues gasped in awe as she walked in.
But somehow, Janet didn’t like Charis. It was probably because she felt insecure about her relationship with Ethan.
As everyone admired her, Janet couldn’t help but look at herself. She was dressed in plain clothes and wasn’t wearing any makeup. She didn’t bother to even put on lipstick before coming to work.
All of a sudden, she felt dwarfed.
After greeting the other employees, Charis walked toward Janet, sizing her up. Suddenly, she was on her guard.
It was not because of how beautiful Janet was. However, there was something in her eyes. She looked innocent yet enchanting. Her eyes seemed to have the power to lure anyone.
Charis’ heart leaped to her throat.
She was the princess in her family who always got everything she wished for. She had always been proud, yet she somehow felt inferior around Janet.
Today, she had worn an expensive outfit and styled herself to perfection to impress Brandon. However, Janet looked breathtaking even without any makeup. Charis knew she wouldn’t be able to compete with Janet if she brought her style game on.
Charis’ heart sank. No wonder Garrett kept telling her how important Janet was to Brandon. After all, no man could resist a beautiful woman like her.
