The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 657 Negotiation
The last shred of hope in Janet’s heart disappeared.
Charis kept making things difficult for her. Janet knew that it’d be impossible to curry Brandon’s favor by playing an affectionate wife
So Janet was going to deal with this matter in the way that Brandon liked most—in a businesslike, professional manner.
Her firm words seemed to finally get to Brandon.
His tall, burly figure suddenly stiffened.
At present, the Larson Group was growing stronger and stronger. Divorce would be an unwise move at this time. If the divorce pushed through, Janet would get tons of his assets in alimony.
Brandon turned around and looked at Janet in unmasked surprise. There was finally a trace of emotion in his usually cold eyes.
He had never considered divorcing Janet. And according to Charis, Janet was completely obsessed with him. Wasn’t it out of character for her to ask for a divorce then?
With one hand in his pocket, Brandon narrowed his eyes at Janet and finally asked, “What do you want?”
Janet’s expression darkened. “I’ve told you countless times. All I want is to be able to talk to you. Mr. Larson, since you are so busy every single day, I don’t know when you’ll be available to talk. I don’t mind making an appointment to fit your schedule, but I only have one request: we need to have enough time to talk.”
Janet glanced at Charis, who was standing near Brandon, and added sarcastically, “If you leave in the middle of our conversation because of some ’emergency’ again, I’ll divorce you on the spot.”
What a cold tone!
Brandon couldn’t help but look Janet up and down a few more times.
It seemed that he had never looked at her this seriously before.
The woman in front of him had a pair of fiercely determined eyes. She wasn’t that tall, nor was she stunning at first sight, but she was still pretty. And she had this magic charm of her that once you set eyes on her, it would be hard to take your eyes off of her.
An indescribable emotion suddenly emerged at the bottom of Brandon’s heart.
Why did this woman insist on having a talk with him? Did they really love each other deeply before?
If that was the case, how could he have just forgotten her completely?
Something seemed to spark within Brandon’s heart, but the complex emotion d*ied down as soon as it came. He couldn’t even understand why he had such a strange feeling for Janet.
He thought for a while and then said, “I’ll ask my a*s*sistant to keep my whole morning open tomorrow.” Janet nodded. “Okay.”
After saying that, she turned around and left without hesitation.
The following morning, Janet, Beal, and Johanna all came to Larson Group. At first, Janet didn’t want her parents to come with her, but Beal and Johanna were worried that Janet would be bullied if she went to see Brandon alone, so they insisted on coming together with her.
The three sat opposite Brandon in a negotiating manner. Janet spoke up first, her tone unhurried. “You said that you would fulfill your duty as a husband, but you only care about work. You even moved to the hotel near the company. You turn a blind eye to me and even refuse to talk with me. You completely ignore me as your wife. Is this what you mean by ‘duty’?”
Brandon answered calmly, “I’ve always put work first. For me, love is—”
Before he could finish his sentence, Janet interrupted him. “Don’t talk nonsense with me,” Janet pulled a long face and said firmly. “Don’t tell me that work is more important. Before this, even if you were extremely busy, you would always spare time for me. But now, you’ve been so cold to me. You’re practically begging me to divorce you, aren’t you? Brandon, let me tell you this: if I divorce you, I promise I won’t be merciful. Don’t forget that I have the support of the White family now. My parents are no weaker than you. They will support whatever decision I make. We didn’t sign any prenup before we got married. I will use all means to get as much property from you as possible if we are to get divorced. When that happens, do you think you’ll still be able to strengthen the Larson Group smoothly as planned?”
