Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 213
Charis had been busy dealing with the Larson Group’s affairs ever since she returned from abroad.
She put herself under a lot of pressure just to impress Brandon and transform herself into a better partner for him.
Now, she hoped that Kent would work his charm and win Janet’s heart.
A week had passed. Charis didn’t know what was going on between Kent and Janet. She wanted to know if things were going according to plan.
Charis had faith in Kent. He was a charmer. When they were still in college, almost all the girls from their class were attracted to him. After all, Kent was a handsome and wealthy man who wouldn’t mind spending money for his girlfriends.
Besides, Janet was an ordinary woman. Therefore, she believed it wouldn’t be difficult for Kent to win her over.
Charis immediately called Kent and asked him to have dinner with her at a nearby restaurant.
Kent arrived an hour late. He walked into the restaurant, looking tired and grumpy.
“Why do you look upset? Is something wrong?” Charis was good at reading people’s minds. She chuckled to lighten his mood.
However, she was actually a bit surprised. Judging by the look on his face, she could tell he hadn’t succeeded yet.
“The girl you mentioned last time is a tough cookie.” Kent pulled a chair and sat down, massaging his temples.
“What? You failed to win her heart?” Charis took a sip of water and silently examined his face.
“I tried every possible means, but that woman is a hard nut to crack.” Kent picked up the menu and flipped across the pages. Then, he snorted and threw it back on the table. “But it doesn’t matter, you know. She is quite cute.”
Charis’s lips curled up. She was glad to know that Kent was still interested in Janet.
She put down the glass and looked at him. She didn’t expect Kent would struggle to win Janet over.
Considering her initial plan had failed, Charis decided to make a move before it was too late.
The collaboration with the Perkins Bank had entered its final stage.
This afternoon, Janet hurriedly walked out of the office with the drawings.
She yelped in shock as someone bumped over her, spilling coffee on her dress.
“Oops, I’m sorry. I was busy reading the documents. I didn’t see you,” said a woman’s high-pitched voice.
“That’s all right.” Janet rubbed the stains on her chest and looked up, her eyes widening in horror.
She had been busy dealing with Kent lately that she almost forgot Charis.
Janet thought that she at least wouldn’t have to meet Charis too often.
“Are you Janet Lind?” Charis’s eyes lit up. She smiled and said, “Do you know that Ethan and I know each other? 1 recently found out that he’s married to you. I’m sorry for staining your shirt. Would you like to come to my office and change to something else? I have many clothes in my closet.”
Before Janet could react, Charis dragged her away.
Although she didn’t want to go to Charis’s office, part of her wanted to find out about the woman’s relationship with Ethan. Therefore, she followed her.
Seeing Janet walking out in the new outfit, Charis looked her up and down, smiling. “This color suits you very well. By the way, Ethan also likes blue.”
Janet was buttoning up the shirt. Her hands stilled when she heard Charis’s comment. “Are you two close?”
Charis looked out of the window and smiled. “We were classmates in high school and good friends.”
After a moment’s pause, she added, “I don’t know if Ethan has told you this, but I liked him. I even confessed my love for him a couple of years ago.”
Janet froze. She snapped up her head and looked at Chairs, the shock evident on her face.
