Seeing the look on Janet’s face, Charis hurriedly held her hand. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that. It’s all in the past. Oh, God. Hasn’t Ethan told you?”

Licking her pale lips, Janet forced a smile. “No. Were you two in a relationship?”

Janet felt the two must have been together before. Why else would Ethan hide the truth about Charis? Every time she tried asking about her, he would always try changing the topic or give a perfunctory answer.

Charis shook her head and let go of Janet’s hand. “It’s all in the past. Forget it. It will only ruin your current relationship with him. Besides, I think it would be better for you to hear it from Ethan himself. Miss Lind, please don’t take my words to heart.” She smiled wryly.

Charis’s words only piqued Janet’s curiosity.

The ambiguous answer made her wonder about the kind of relationship she shared with Ethan. A thousand thoughts began to swarm in her mind.

“You said it was in the past, so why don’t you tell me?” Janet asked, restraining her anger.

She couldn’t understand why she was angry.

“No. I don’t want to talk about it. I hope you don’t mind. Forget about what I said. Let bygones be bygones. Ethan is married now, and I only wish the best for you both.” Charis smiled. Although she seemed calm, the sadness was evident in her eyes.

Janet could tell that Charis still had feelings for Ethan, and she wouldn’t give up.

‘No wonder Charis called Ethan in the middle of the night. She isn’t stupid enough to forget the time difference. She must have done it on purpose,’ thought Janet.

“Well, if you don’t want to talk about it, I won’t force you.” with that, Janet stormed out of the office.

She always had an inkling that Ethan was hiding something from her. He had only told her that Charis was just his classmate, but not once did he mention that Charis liked him. Janet’s suspicion intensified; she strongly believed Ethan was hiding something from her.

A complacent smile emerged on Charis’s face as she watched Janet walk away, she had told everything she wanted to say and sown the seeds of suspicion in Janet’s mind. She had managed to stir her peace by giving ambiguous answers to her desperate questions.

….

Jealousy simmered in Janet’s heart. Her mind was a mess, and she couldn’t concentrate on anything.

When it was time to leave, Kent called her again. “We have finalized the design today. I think it deserves a celebration. Would you like to join me for dinner?”

Janet’s mind flitted to the proud, complacent smile on Charis’s face earlier. “Okay. I’ll see you in a bit.”

Kent had prepared himself to face another rejection. But excitement bubbled up in her heart when he heard her answer. It looked like all his efforts had finally paid off.

He quickly booked a table in an exquisite restaurant in a five-star hotel with floors of guest rooms just upstairs, so it would be convenient for him to take her up for some after-party after dinner.

Kent picked Janet from the office and drove her to the hotel. The two got out of the car and walked inside.

Meanwhile, Garrett brought his girlfriend to the same hotel. Just as he was about to take a bite of food, his gaze fell on Kent.

He stopped and looked intently to see the man’s latest conquest. Garrett’s eyes widened in horror when he saw Janet walking beside him.
