Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 219
“Hey, I thought you were busy,” Charis squealed with surprise “Why have you called me at this hour?”
She had just returned home from work
“I’m not calling to say hello. I want to ask you something.” Ethan said coldly. “Why did you tell Janet about what happened between us in the past?”
When Charis decided to tell everything to Janet and sow the seeds of doubts in her mind, she knew Ethan would come to her.
“What’s wrong? Did she quarrel with you?” Charis asked, pretending to be surprised.
“She’s unhappy,” Ethan grunted.
“I’m sorry, but I didn’t mean to do it. You know me,” Charis whined innocently. “She asked about us and our past, and I couldn’t just walked away from our conversation. That would be rude. However, I made it clear to her that although I liked you, it’s all in the past, and you’re married now. I told her that I no longer have a crush on you and I only wish you two nothing but happiness. I didn’t expect Janet would bicker with you for such a trivial issue. I thought she was a reasonable woman.”
Charis had already prepared what to tell Ethan when he questioned her. She wanted to make it seem like she didn’t do anything wrong, and Janet’s shallowness was the reason for their problems. She wanted to shift all the blame on Janet.
However, the phone call displeased her. It seemed that Ethan truly cared about Janet. He had called her late at night just to talk about this.
Ethan didn’t think Charis was lying. After all, she would easily be busted if she really lied about this and he asked Janet to confront her.
He knew Charis well. She was bold, straightforward, and wouldn’t waste her time creating problems in their lives.
But Ethan couldn’t entirely be sure of it. His intuition told him that things weren’t as simple as they seemed.
Janet would never make trouble out of nothing. If Charis had merely talked about the past and their friendship, Janet wouldn’t be jealous.
“Why don’t you say anything?” Charis knew Ethan well and understood what he must be thinking. She sighed and said, “Do you want me to talk to Janet tomorrow and explain everything clearly to her? I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to cause any problem.”
“No, thanks,” Ethan said unhappily.
Charis’s heart sank.
It looked like Ethan was suspicious of her.
The cold wind gave him a headache.
Reading women’s minds was an impossible task.
Ethan felt the only solution to the problem was to keep Janet away from Charis. It would be better if the two never saw each other again.
However, unlike Christopher, Charis was important to the Larson Group. She was the daughter of the Turner family. Ethan, despite being the CEO of the Larson Group, couldn’t just kick her out.
“Charis, you better mind your own business,” he said, massaging his throbbing temples. “Stay out of our personal problems.”
At that moment, he heard rustling noises behind him. Ethan turned around and saw Janet standing behind him. Her dress billowed with the cold wind as she stared at him with tears in her eyes.
