The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 676 The Past Two Years
Janet’s eyes went as wide as saucers.
She had many guesses as to why Brandon had suddenly turned cold to her, but she never considered that he might’ve lost his memory.
It was like a scene straight out of a movie!
“Did the doctor say anything? Can you still recover your memory?” Janet asked anxiously, wringing her hands.
Her hair stood on end as all the seemingly unrelated pieces to the puzzle started coming together. First, she got into a car accident, plummeted into the sea, and ended up trapped on a desert island. Then, Brandon suddenly fell ill and passed out during the search and rescue operations. When he woke up, he had mysteriously lost his memory of the past two years.
And when Janet was stuck on the island, someone had sent hitmen to finish her. When she came back alive, she didn’t have the time to think about everything that had happened because of the sudden change in Brandon. Only now did it dawn on her that something was terribly wrong.
Who sent those hitmen after her?
While everything seemed unrelated at first, when Janet thought about everything that happened carefully, a chill ran down her spine.
But she didn’t speak her mind right away. Instead, she calmed down first and waited for Brandon to explain.
“The doctor wasn’t very helpful. He said that there were many possible reasons behind my memory loss. Charis was the one who told me that I was on the ship with the search and rescue team when I passed out. The next time I woke up, I couldn’t remember anything from the past two years. Actually, everything I know about the past two years was taught to me by Charis.”
Brandon narrowed his eyes and pursed his lips tightly. “I was worried that my compet*itors would use my memory loss to their advantage, so I didn’t tell anyone about it—including you. I know nothing about our past.” After explaining everything, Brandon fell into a pensive silence.
Janet wanted to tell Brandon everything, especially all the bad things Charis had done to them.
But she couldn’t.
Brandon had lost the memory of the past two years. Which meant that he didn’t have feelings for her now, let alone trust. Besides, she didn’t have any evidence to prove what Charis had done, and Brandon trusted Charis the most right now. After all, she worked as the second in command of Larson Group. (u
“I see…” Janet swallowed everything she wanted to say. Now that Brandon’s mind was practically a blank slate, it was likely that Charis had spoken ill of Janet in front of him.
Thinking of this, Janet shifted in bed uncomfortably.
The mere thought that her husband trusted the woman who had hurt her more than once upset her very much.
Worse yet, the two years missing from Brandon’s memory were the two years that they had grown to understand and love each other.
No wonder he had alienated her these days. Everything finally made sense.
With tears in her eyes and a lump in her throat, Janet asked softly, “Do you want to know about our relationship over the past two years? If you have time, I can tell you all about it…”
Usually, Brandon wouldn’t have wasted his precious time listening to this woman’s stories.
He was a very busy man and devoted all his life to work, not boring things like this.
But after hearing what Janet said, without hesitation, he subconsciously answered, “Go ahead.”
Janet pursed her lips unhappily. She could tell that Brandon didn’t really that interested in what had happened between them in the past two years and that he was only f0rced to oblige her.
Nonetheless, Janet wanted to tell him, so she cleared her throat and begin talking. In brief words, she described what happened between them over the past two years. She told him about how he pretended to be a poor young man when they got married. It was only later when his true ident*ity revealed that the two obtained each other’s trust and love.
She didn’t exactly describe how she felt, and she simply explained everything to him as though she was telling someone else’s story.
“That’s why I couldn’t accept the fact that you were so indifferent to me all of a sudden,” she added in the end. Brandon kept silent and listened to her carefully and patiently. There was tenderness in his eyes when Janet finished the story.
He smiled and asked, “Did we love each other very much back then?”
