Read The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 431
The sight of tears in Janet’s eyes made Ethan panic.
The whole world knew him for his decisiveness, but when he saw Janet’s tears, he didn’t know what to do.
Ethan pulled a tissue from a box on the top of the dashboard and wiped the tears from her face. Then, in a soft voice, he said, “When did I ever say that I didn’t want you to be Brandon’s wife? I told you that I didn’t say anything in the beginning because I was afraid it would put you in danger. Later on, as time went by, I couldn’t tell you because I thought you would be angry at me.”
Janet took the tissue from Ethan’s hand and sniffled slightly, raising her tearful eyes before she replied, “I’m not worthy to be Brandon’s wife.”
A gust of cold wind blew through the window, driving chills down Janet’s body.
Ethan closed the window, took off his coat, and wrapped it around her body before sitting back on the driver’s seat.
He held the steering wheel with one hand and sat there silently for a moment as if he was thinking before he said, “Who told you that?”
Finally, at long last, he knew what was troubling Janet.
She looked down to avert his eyes and said nothing.
Ethan rested his face in the palm of his hand and sighed exasperatedly. He glared down at her, shaking his head in frustration.
Unfortunately, he had no choice but to patch things up with his wife.
After all, he didn’t want to have a fight with Janet. Deep down inside, he truly felt sorry for her.
All of a sudden, Ethan couldn’t help but recall the days they had spent living in a small apartment, like any other ordinary couple.
Janet would always have to track their living expenses.
In truth, he enjoyed her nagging and didn’t mind being yelled at by her because no one else would dare to treat him like that.
Ethan suddenly came to the realization that he was nothing but a puppet whose strings were being pulled by Janet.
He leaned over, gazing her deeply, and said, “Why do you have to think of our relationship in such a superficial way? I’ll admit, at first, I married you just to fulfill my mother’s d***g wish, but then I truly fell in love with you. And since then, I’ve loved you unconditionally. If I wanted to marry the daughter of a rich and powerful family, I could’ve gotten married before I met you. Why do I have to put so much effort to keep you by my side if I don’t have feelings for you? No matter what happens, you will always be my wife.”
Janet’s heart skipped a beat when she heard Ethan’s words.
She used to think that Ethan was a frivolous man who never took anything seriously in his life.
However, when she looked into his eyes now, she could see that he was speaking the truth.
When she locked eyes with him, her breathing became erratic and her heart started beating faster.
She looked away, not knowing how to respond to the intensity of Ethan’s gaze.
She lowered her head, knowing that Ethan was still staring at her, and faintly said, “Why are you looking at me like that? I’ve already told you what I want. Please just let me go.”
With tenderness in his eyes, Ethan raised his hand and stroked her hair. “It’s okay. I have plenty of time. I’ll wait for you to change your mind. But, you wouldn’t have brought it up for no reason. Janet, please tell me who have you been talked to?” he said in a gentle tone. “Please?”
Janet thought that Ethan should know the truth, so she raised her head to look at him and said, “Miss Turner came to see me and she told me some things that sounded very reasonable.”
