The Substitute Wife: My Poor Husband Is A Billionaire
Chapter 1170 She Is His First Love
Janet was just about to leave when she suddenly thought of the look in Kailee’s eyes. There was a strange reluctance and jealousy in her eyes. It didn’t look like she was looking at her old classmate, but like she was looking at her old lover.
Janet immediately got vigilant, thinking that she had the duty to warn Garrett as Laney’s close friend.
“Hold on, Laney. Can I be with Garrett for a while? I need to talk to him about something,” Janet said, pulling Garrett aside with a frown and looking at him with an inquiring gaze.
“What’s wrong?” Garrett was terrified by Janet’s gaze.
“What’s your relationship with Kailee? I don’t think you two are just classmates,” Janet asked Garrett in a low voice while secretly glancing at Laney.
Garrett didn’t expect Janet to be so sharp that she even sensed that he had a special relationship with Kailee.
However, Garrett did not want to hide it from her. He looked straight at her and admitted frankly, “We used to date when we were in school. And she is my first love.”
“Your first love?” Janet exclaimed.
“Keep your voice down!” Garrett hurriedly glanced at Laney to make sure that she did not hear them. He then sighed with relief and said helplessly, “That’s in the past. We’ve both moved on.”
However, Janet didn’t believe it because she knew how much men valued their first love. Not to mention, there was something unusual about the way Kailee looked at Garrett now. It seemed like Kailee still had feelings for Garrett.
“Really?” With knitted brows, Janet looked at Garrett suspiciously.
Garrett signed helplessly and insisted, “I used to be a playboy back then, but I’ve been absolutely loyal to Laney ever since I’m with her. Besides, Kailee and I dated a long time ago. Don’t worry, Laney is the only one I love now.”
Seeing that Garrett didn’t seem to be lying, Janet was relieved, but she still reminded him, “Since Laney is pregnant now, she can’t bear to lake any stress or stimulation. You’d better be careful.”
Garrett nodded firmly. Laney was his beloved wife, and he wouldn’t do anything to hurt her. “But I have one thing to ask.” Garrett scratched his head and continued, “Can you hide this from Laney for the time being? You know, she is pregnant now and she is sensitive. I’m afraid that she might overthink it.” Janet also felt that it made sense, so she agreed.
After Janet left, Laney asked in confusion, “What were you two whispering about? And why were you being so secretive?”
Garrett made up an excuse and said, “Janet was just scolding me for not taking good care of you and for not being with you when you came to the hospital.”
Laney was amused by his exaggerated tone, so she didn’t dwell on the matter. She touched his nose intimately and said playfully, “I think Janet is right. How are you going to make amends to me?”
“I’ve brought your favorite desserts.” Garrett waved the upscale dessert bag in his hand with pride. “How is it? Do you like it?”
But to his surprise, Laney frowned and asked, “What about Janet? Didn’t you bring her desserts?”
Laney was already feeling guilty because Janet left Brandon to accompany her to look around the hospitals.
She didn’t expect Garrett to be so inconsiderate and thoughtless, which annoyed her. He should have brought desserts for Janet!
Garrett blinked innocently, pretending to be aggrieved, and held Laney’s hand gently. “When I arrived at the bakery today, there was only one bag of desserts left, and I had to give priority to you… We can invite Janet to dinner next time.”
Seeing him being so childish, Laney felt resigned. She shook her head and said with a wry smile, “All right, all right. I’ll forgive you.”
