The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 706 Avenge Charis
Vivian was certain that Janet was responsible for Charis’s untimely death.
What surprised her was that Charis’s parents had done nothing to avenge their daughter’s death. Instead, they let Janet go scot-free!
Vivian was a Ph.D. student in the middle of an important project. However, when she heard the gruesome news, she decided to return home without hesitation. She went straight to the lab and asked her supervisor, Jeremy b*tton, for a leave.
At the time, Jeremy was conducting some experiments with the other students.
Seeing that Vivian looked so bothered and anxious, he asked with concern, “What’s the matter? We’re still at the early stages of the project. It’s very important to lay a solid foundation.”
Vivian shook her head sadly. “Mr. b*tton, my patron, Charis Turner, was murdered. I have to go back.”
Jeremy’s eyebrows shot up in surprise. He quickly signed the leave forms for Vivian and sighed. “I’m so sorry to hear that.”
Too immersed in grief, Vivian didn’t notice the strange look on his face.
Time was of the essence. If she could pack up now, she could still catch the last flight back tonight.
However, just as she turned around to leave, Jeremy suddenly stopped her.
“Yes, Mr. b*tton?” Vivian turned around and asked anxiously.
Jeremy patted her on the shoulder sympathetically. “I think maybe one week’s leave is not enough. Since the matter sounds quite serious, you can come back once everything’s settled.”
“Didn’t you say that the early stages are very important? Is it really okay if I don’t come back soon? What about the project?” Vivian was confused.
Jeremy waved his hand dismissively. “Didn’t you say that your sponsor was murdered? Don’t you want to take revenge on the murderer?”
Vivian’s eyes lit up. Of course, she wanted to avenge Charis.
“But I don’t know what to do,” Vivian murmured hesitatantly.
“Do you know who k*il*led her?” Jeremy asked pointedly.
Immediately, Janet’s name came to her mind. Vivian nodded and said, “I have a suspect in mind.”
But the White family was not to be trifled with. Even Vivian, who had been abroad for a long time, had heard of the Whites.
“Although I’ve done well in school, I’m just an orphan. I don’t stand a chance against the person who k*il*led Charis. I don’t even know where to start.” Vivian clenched her fists, her eyes filled with hatred, u
Looking at her, Jeremy smiled knowingly. “I can help you.”
Then, he leaned over and whispered in her ear, “However, if you want my help, you’ll have to do something for me in return…”
A gust of cold wind blew past her. Vivian shivered in the cold and was brought back to reality.
“Are you cold, Miss Cooper?” Catherine, who was standing in front of Vivian, noticed how pale she looked and asked the servant to bring a blanket to her.
Once she was wrapped in a blanket, Vivian shook her head and smiled. She didn’t tell Charis’ parents about her plan.
“Thanks, Mrs. Turner. I just thought about what happened to Miss Turner and couldn’t help but feel sad. Miss Turner was a really nice lady.” Genuine tears rolled down Vivian’s face. She cried bitterly in front of Charis’s tomb.
Seeing this, Catherine was also touched. She couldn’t help but comfort her, “If Charis knew that you thought so highly of her, she would’ve been very happy.”
Vivian wiped her tears and f0rced a smile. “I’ll stay in Barnes for the time being. If you need someone to talk to, you can always call me. I’ve always considered Miss Turner my elder sister. When I was in college, she often urged me to study hard, and she talked about you a lot.” When Catherine heard that Charis often mentioned her to Vivian, she felt somewhat comforted.
She had just lost her daughter, so she felt drawn to the people who knew Charis well.
Catherine reached for Vivian’s hand and asked with concern, “You said you’ve just come back from abroad. Do you have a place to stay right now, my child? If not, you’re welcome to stay at our house for a few days.” “Really?” Vivian blinked in surprise.
Things were easier than she thought. Catherine glanced at Luke, who then nodded. Catherine turned around and smiled at Vivian brightly. “Of course. You are welcome to stay with us.”
