Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 246
The female voice sounded familiar.
Janet looked back to see who it was.
Behind her stood Emani, who was wearing a gorgeous navy blue dress and sunglasses. She was standing at the door of the shop. She took off her sunglasses and smiled brightly.
Her assistant was standing behind her with a lot of shopping bags in both hands. It seemed like Emani had just finished shopping and was about to leave.
“No, thank you, Miss Gomez.” Janet shook her head and frowned.
She and Emani hadn’t been on good terms since the party. Hence, she wanted to avoid her more than anything.
At first, Emani hadn’t intended to pick on Janet. She thought she was out of bounds because Garrett was dating her. But when she found out that Garrett was dating someone else, she felt that he had dumped Janet. It was common knowledge that Garrett never dated more than one woman at a time even though he was a playboy.
This was why Emani had concluded that Janet had gotten dumped and she could trample on her now.
She sneered and flipped her hair back when she saw the frown on Janet’s face. It was then her eyes advertently fell on the man standing beside Janet.
Emani stared at him, goggle-eyed. The man wasn’t girlish handsome like some of the men she usually met. This one was masculine and his face was excellently sculpted. He looked cold and distant, but she could see that he was a reserved man from the glint in his eyes.
‘Wow! Who would have thought that such a plain Jane could have such great taste in men? Garrett and this man are both hunks. I wonder how she managed to get them. Humph! Someone like her doesn’t deserve such a prince charming!’
Emani was bedazzled by the man’s handsomeness, but that didn’t stop her from noticing that he was poorly dressed. To her, this meant that he wasn’t a big shot.
‘Wow! Janet got a handsome man with empty pockets. Serves her right!’ Thinking of this, a mocking smile appeared on her face. She felt that bullying Janet would be easy since no one could stand up to her now.
“Oh, Miss Lind. Why leave in such a hurry?” Putting on a patronizing expression, she briskly walked up to Janet in her heels.
How Janet humiliated her at the ball was still fresh in her memory.
Janet didn’t want to offend Emani because she was an influencer for the Larson Group. She knew that it would be unwise to bring their beef to work. As a result, she asked calmly, “Is there anything you would like me to do, Miss Gomez?”
Feigning good intentions and friendliness, Emani held Janet’s arm to prevent her from leaving. “Actually, I don’t need anything from you. I just thought I should be of help to you since you like the jewelry here. Come and have a look at some of them. I’m a VIP customer here, don’t worry. You haven’t visited a store as luxurious as this in your entire life, right? Well, that will change today. I’ll be your guide in this store.”
“Thank you for the kind offer, Miss Gomez. But I have to decline. You know, it’s late now. I’m sure you are tired after your shopping. You need to rest.” Janet wasn’t deceived by the smile on Emani’s face. She could deduce the underlying insults in her words. She also didn’t want to have anything to do with her.
“Oh, no! I’m not tired at all. Is your concern for me the only reason for your refusal? Or are you afraid that the attendants here will look down on you? Not to worry. I’m here with you. None of them would dare to say a word about you. Let’s go!” Emani knew that Janet wanted to escape. Like the dubious woman that she was, she longed to see the embarrassed expression on her face after getting humiliated.
Throughout the eight years that she had been working in the entertainment industry, she had never been so humiliated as she was at the ball. She still hadn’t gotten over it. Now that she had bumped into Janet today, she wanted to get her revenge. Emani wanted Janet to taste the same humiliation in ten folds.
The smile on her face and her words were just means to deceive Janet. She was already concocting a plan in her head without letting go of Janet’s hand.
Both women argued back and forth until Janet couldn’t take it anymore. She didn’t like arguing with anyone, but she never allowed them to trample on her.
“Okay, you win. Let’s do this, Miss Gomez.” Forcing a smile, she held Emani’s arm and walked into the store.
