Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 424
Gerda was upstairs at the moment. She had a lot to eat today, so she was running on the treadmill in the gym, trying to feel less guilty.
While she was running, she noticed Janet rushing out of the stairwell with streaks of tears on her face.
“Lind? What were you doing coming out of the stairwell?” Even though Gerda was normally a jovial person, she could tell that Janet was in a sour mood.
Upon seeing the worry on Gerda’s face, Janet felt even more dispirited.
She threw herself into Gerda’s arms and sniffled. “Just don’t ask me anything, okay?”
She had buried her face in Gerda’s hair.
And so, Gerda just caressed Janet’s back in silence. When she felt that the latter was shivering, she felt really sorry for her. But at the same time, she was furious.
“Who did this to you?” Gerda was filled with righteous indignation. She was just about ready to roll up her sleeves and smack somebody on the back of their heads.
Janet shook her head, adjusted her mood, and smiled at Gerda. “It’s okay, Gerda. I’m feeling a lot better now. There’s no need for that.”
She then pursed her lips and added, “Whenever something happens, you don’t have to worry about defending other people right away. At times, you just need to think more about yourself.”
Janet’s words left Gerda speechless.
What does she mean by that? She sounds like she’s planning on leaving. Gerda was confused.
The second the elevator arrived, Janet entered it right away.
She was lost in thought. And the more she thought of what Charis said to her, the more she felt Charis was right. There was indeed a great difference in social standing between her and Ethan.
Janet used to be the Lind family’s adopted daughter. Even though the Lind family wasn’t that influential or wealthy, it still had its own company. But now, she had lost this identity as well after she disowned her family. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that she was now a woman without a family. All she was, was an ordinary employee. Compared to a guy like Brandon, the billionaire CEO of Larson Group, she was nothing.
Ever since they met, Ethan had been helping her with all sorts of problems, but not once had she helped him back.
Only a wealthy noble lady like Charis deserved a man like Ethan. Charis was capable, strong, and she had been working with him since they were young. Their relationship was incomparable to all others.
When the thought crossed Janet’s mind, she felt even more upset and self-abased.
As much as it pained her to self-deprecate, she had to admit that this was the truth. In every aspect, she was inferior to Charis.
It was no wonder that Ethan had hidden his true identity as Brandon Larson from her. She was qualified to be Ethan’s wife, but she wasn’t good enough to be Brandon Larson’s wife.
Janet walked out of the Larson Group building in a daze.
She’d rather not work for the company anymore. Just seeing Charis would remind her of what the latter said to her.
It was clear to her that she wasn’t good enough to compete with Charis.
“Where am I supposed to go now? To the villa?” Sadly, that was also where Ethan lived. If she wanted to move out, he’d certainly try to stop her.
Janet was uncertain of what to do next. As she looked around the bustling city, she didn’t know where she should go.
The world was vast, and yet she had no home.
Never had she felt this lonely before.
