The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 675 The Truth Comes Out
Janet had a ton of questions, but she couldn’t utter a single word. She could only turn her face away from Brandon, silently wiping the tears from her eyes.
As soon as Janet was wheeled into the ward for treatment, Brandon informed Beal and Johanna.
Johanna couldn’t remember how many times Janet had been hospitalized over the past six months.
She felt both sorry and worried for her daughter. Naturally, she wasn’t planning to be nice with Brandon any longer.
The doctor was carefully treating Janet’s back. Standing in the corner of the room, Brandon’s eyes were fixed on the numerous blisters on Janet’s smooth skin. Finally, he couldn’t help but ask, “Will it scar?”
Brandon bit his lower lip tightly. He’d never forgive himself if Janet’s skin scarred as a result of her protecting him.
The doctor replied honestly, “There are two areas here with second degree burns. There’ll be traces left, more or less.”
After a long silence, Brandon looked at Janet again and murmured hoarsely, “Thanks for saving me.”
It was the first time that Brandon had thanked Janet so sincerely. But she didn’t like it. He treated her too distantly.
For a moment, Janet didn’t know what to say. They were husband and wife. There was no need for him to be so formal with her.
She f0rced a smile, but there was a trace of sadness in her eyes. “You’re welcome. When our apartment was on fire, you also protected me. You still have a burn scar on your back. Now we’re even.”
Hearing this, Brandon’s expression immediately darkened and a trace of confusion flashed in his eyes. He seemed to want to say something, but stopped on second thought.
What apartment? What fire? When did that happen? He didn’t remember anything about it.
When Janet saw the confusion in Brandon’s eyes, the smile on her face stiffened.
Soon, the doctor finished bandaging up Janet’s wounds. After he left, she took a deep breath and finally asked, “Strange. Why did you have such a weird expression just now? I can’t help but get the feeling that you’ve forgotten everything about our past. Brandon, if you don’t think you’re getting anything out of this marriage, just say so. I won’t hold you back. You don’t have to do this to me.” io>
Janet spoke in a seemingly casual tone, but the thought of breaking up with Brandon made her heart tighten.
Brandon averted his gaze hesitantly. After a while, he finally spoke up, albeit with difficulty. “Something happened to me…”
“Yeah, I’m not stupid. I can tell that you’ve changed. In fact, it’s like you’re a completely different person. Are you still not going to tell me what happened?” Resting her head on the pillow, Janet stared at him and said in a tired voice, “Brandon, I’m not a mind-reader. The longer you keep the truth from me, the crazier I get. It’s only a matter of time before I crumble.”
Brandon’s expression softened. Janet had risked her life to save him. Wasn’t she worthy of his trust?
Sitting next to the bed, Brandon looked into Janet’s eyes, as though searching for answers. Finally, he said in a low voice, “You’re not stupid. It’s just… Whatever happened to me sounds crazy. Even I can’t believe it myself. When you were lost at sea, they said I suddenly passed out in one of the search-and-rescue ships. It turned out I had a high fever and was incredibly ill. When I woke up again, I couldn’t understand my surroundings. Charis told me what had happened. Then I realized that I had lost my memory of the past two years.”
