The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 677 Did He Really Love Janet
Brandon thought that if the relationship between him and Janet was as good as how she described it to be, then he must’ve been quite fond of her.
But at the same time, there was a nagging question in Brandon’s mind.
According to what Charis had told him, Janet had a one -sided obsession with him, whereas he had no feelings for his wife at all.
It was a completely different story from what Janet told him just now.
What was more puzzling was that Janet didn’t seem to be lying.
Brandon buried this question in the back of his head, intending to ask Charis about it later.
Just then, the Whites burst into the ward.
When Johanna received the phone call from Brandon, she was worried sick. However, after finding out that Janet was injured because she had tried to save Brandon, her worry turned into fury.
As soon as she stepped foot inside the ward, she went straight to Brandon and pointed a finger at him angrily. “Brandon Larson! How could you do this to my daughter? You’ve been treating her so badly yet she still risked her life to save you! Her father and I should’ve stopped you two from being together at all costs from the very beginning!”
Her nostrils flared as she spoke. She regretted having accepted Brandon as her son-in-law.
It wasn’t because Brandon was a bad man, but because he couldn’t seem to protect Janet.
Johanna wanted peace and happiness for her beloved daughter, not for her to be hospitalized every now and then, not to mention Brandon’s involvement with other women.
Janet could tell that her mother was really angry this time.
She buried her face in her hands and bit her lip, trying hard to hold back her tears. Then she stretched out one hand and tugged at the corner of Johanna’s clothes. “Mom, don’t say that. It’s not Brandon’s fault. He… He has lost his memory.”
Johanna was a little stunned, wondering if she had misheard.
She swatted Janet’s hand away and glared at her angrily. “I can’t believe you’ve made up such a ridiculous lie in order to defend this shameless man! How could he lose his memory out of the blue? Don’t be silly, Janet. Brandon doesn’t deserve a good girl like you!”
Naturally, in parents’ eyes, nobody was good enough for their children.
Janet smiled bitterly and said, “But it’s true, Mom.”
She too found it unbelievable at first. How could someone suddenly lose their memory?
But it really happened to Brandon.
Seeing the sincerity in Janet’s eyes, Johanna reasoned that her daughter couldn’t be lying. She gradually calmed down and straightened her scarf. She was so angry just now that she forgot all about her manners.
She pursed her red lips and demanded, “What exactly happened?”
Janet lowered her head and didn’t say anything for a long time.
Beal immediately understood that his daughter wanted to talk to her mother in private, so he looked at Brandon and said firmly, “Come with me. Let’s give them some space. I have some questions for you.”
Brandon nodded and promptly followed Beal out.
When the two women were left alone in the ward, Janet grasped Johanna’s hand and whispered, “I have a feeling Charis is behind everything, but I don’t have any evidence yet. I don’t know how she managed to make Brandon lose exactly two years of his memory. He happened to go back to a time just before he met me. It can’t be a coincidence.”
Johanna looked at her daughter gravely. “It won’t be easy to deal with Charis. Brandon seems to trust her with his life right now. You’ll have to find solid evidence and expose her true face to him as soon as possible. Otherwise, who knows what she’ll do next?”
Janet nodded. Her mother was right.
But the situation was not optimistic. Charis was a cautious and cunning woman. She must’ve wiped her tracks clean. Janet really had no clue where to start.
After a while, Beal came back with Brandon.
He had a general understanding of what was going on with Brandon now.
He said to Janet, “Don’t worry. We’ll do whatever we can to retrieve Brandon’s memory. I know several authoritative brain specialists abroad. I’ll ask them to fly in tomorrow. The medical field has developed exponentially in the past few years. I doubt there’s a problem they can’t fix.”
Janet smiled at him feebly. “Thanks, Dad.”
However, she sighed internally. She was nowhere near as optimistic as her father. She had a bad feeling that Brandon’s memory loss wasn’t as simple as it seemed.
Brandon didn’t refuse Beal’s offer. After all, he wasn’t about to say no to the possibility of regaining his memory.
He nodded and said, “I’ll also go to see a doctor and find a way to regain my memory.”
Previously, he felt that with Charis’s help, losing his memories of the past two years was not that big a deal. But Janet and Charis told him two vastly different stories. He wanted to know who was lying.
At the same time, he also had a question in his heart that needed answers. Did he really fall in love with Janet?
