Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 243
The moment Ethan noticed the panic in Janet’s eyes, he wrapped his arms around her waist from behind and rested his chin on her collarbone. His voice rang in her ears, “it’s nothing to be afraid of. I’m here with you. Please calm down.”
Janet closed her eyes and took a deep breath when he finished speaking. She then turned around and hugged him tightly. With tears welling up in her eyes, she said, “I really wish I could calm down However, I can’t help but think that I have caused a lot of trouble.”
Now, Janet wished she could turn back the hands of time. She hadn’t expected things to turn out like this.
Stroking her hair to comfort her, Ethan sealed her lips with a kiss. She was forced to s*****w the words she wanted to say.
The topmost agenda on Ethan’s list was to get rid of Jocelyn and Fiona once and for all.
But before he could come up with a good plan, he received a call from Garrett.
“Hey, buddy. I just found out something. You need to stop whatever you have planned. Did you know that Jocelyn is Luke’s new mistress?”
Ethan’s eyes darkened immediately. He had heard that Luke had a lot of girlfriends, but he didn’t expect that Jocelyn would be one of them.
“So what? How is that a big deal? Isn’t he fond of changing mistresses as if he’s changing clothes? Or is he very serious with Jocelyn?” He sneered.
“Yes, he changes mistresses every now and then. But I don’t know if he’s serious with Jocelyn or not. I honestly don’t think he would be with her for long. But that doesn’t change the fact that she’s currently affiliated with him. You have to be very careful. I heard that Luke pulled some strings to have Fiona released from prison. That means he can do anything for them because he likes Jocelyn, at least for now. If you must do something to them, you have to tread with caution. That’s all I can say,” Garrett said seriously.
Ethan’s lips thinned into a grim line as he listened to this advice. As much as he hated to admit it, Garrett was right. There was no mistaking that Luke was a formidable opponent. His powerful family background and connections had been built decades ago. Ethan doubted if even Brandon’s identity could stand a chance against such a man.
“Okay, I have heard all that you said. Now assign a skilled bodyguard to secretly follow Janet everywhere she goes.” Ethan’s fingers tightened until his entire arm ached due to the force. “Make it a female bodyguard.”
“Ha-ha! I have to say that I got more and more to take care of since you got married. Better give me a raise, bro,” Garrett commented jokingly.
Immediately after the call ended, he started searching for a skilled female bodyguard just as Ethan had ordered. Although there was a battalion of excellent bodyguards, only a few of them were women.
It was extremely hard to find the perfect one. But in the end, a female bodyguard was recommended to him by a professional security organization called Shadow, which specialized in the training of assassins and bodyguards.
Garrett personally went to the provided address to meet her.
Some people were on the training ground at this time. The place was brightly lit and equipped with different training objects. About twenty men were sparring with a woman. They were in a stalemate
Garrett’s full attention was on the woman in dark purple tight clothes. She looked very young and thin. Her was slender and she had a delicate appearance. She looked like one of those women that any man would want to protect at first glance. None of her features indicated that she was a good fighter.
With a slight frown, Garrett tore off his gaze and looked at the man beside him. “I find it rather appalling that you have sunk this low. Don’t you have a heart? How can you allow twenty men to fight such a delicate woman?”
The man smiled and replied, “Mr. Harding, please don’t let her looks deceive you. This woman is Laney Garcia, the female bodyguard we recommended you on the phone. And the men are her students. Although she looks delicate, she’s more experienced and stronger than many male bodyguards in the industry. You should watch her in action.”
Staring at the b**e-faced woman, Garrett laughed and uttered, “I should watch her in action? Are you kidding me? What’s there to watch? She’s too thin to be a qualified bodyguard. Those men can break her bones with just a punch!”
All of a sudden, Laney turned around and quit the training. She left the training area and walked towards Garrett.
“Hey, did I offend you?” Garrett looked at her teasingly.
Laney, who had one hand at her back, signaled for Garrett to come forward with her other hand.
But before he could say or move an inch, she moved to him like lightning. Everything happened so fast. The next thing Garrett knew was that his back hit the ground with a thud. The supposedly delicate woman had knocked down a six-foot-tall man in a split second!
“Ouch!” A cry of pain escaped Garrett’s lips as he lay on the ground.
Laney dusted her hands and said, “For your information, I can deal with twenty more men like you using just one hand. Let’s just say you weren’t prepared. Do you want to go again?”
The pain was too much that it seemed Garrett’s spinal cord was broken. Biting his lips, he struggled to get up. He then waved his hand and said, “No need. I will take you.”
