The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire
Chapter 739 Grown Ups
Brandon answered the phone. As soon as he heard what the caller had to say, he stood up from the sofa angrily. “How did this happen? Where’s the technician on duty tonight?”
Janet wanted to say something, but then she stopped on second thought.
She could tell that Brandon was having a hard time running the company all by himself.
Garrett and Charis, the two senior executive members of the Larson Group, no longer worked there. Brandon hadn’t found any reliable replacements to take over the important issues of the company. Brandon had to bounce between the head office and the branch office these days, yet he still managed to spare some time to be with her.
Thinking about this, Janet held back what she wanted to say.
“What happened?” she asked with concern. “Nothing to trouble you with. I’ve asked the technician to take care of it.” After putting the phone down, Brandon sighed wearily.
When he turned to look at Janet, his expression softened and he pulled her into his arms. “Don’t worry. I’ll investigate who did this. And I’ll a*s*sign more bodyguards to you.”
Janet sighed, nestled in Brandon’s arms. Being this close to Brandon made her feel inexplicably safe and relaxed.
“Don’t worry too much about this, okay? I have a feeling that whoever’s behind this will definitely strike again. In fact, I look forward to seeing her.”
No matter who was after them, Janet was sure that she could handle it.
Even if it was really Charis’s ghost who had come back to haunt her, she wasn’t afraid. After all, she didn’t do anything wrong. What would she be afraid of?
Hearing this, Brandon thought that Janet just meant that she didn’t want any bodyguards around her.
He knew that Janet liked keeping a low profile. It was only natural she didn’t want to be followed, especially to her workplace.
Cupping Janet’s face in his hands, Brandon explained patiently, “If you feel restrained by those bodyguards, I’ll tell them not to follow you so closely. They’ll keep their distance.”
Janet had told him previously that the old Brandon had secretly hired Laney, who posed as Janet’s friend, to protect her. He didn’t want to make the same mistake and wanted to be transparent with Janet now.
“Actually, it’s fine. It’s not a big deal, really.” Janet shook her head. “I realized that nothing’s more important than being with you safe and sound. Trust me. I will be responsible for both myself and you.”
Brandon looked at her with newfound respect. “My, my, you’re all grown up now.” As he spoke, he sighed and stroked her hair gently.
Janet pursed her lips and looked up at Brandon inquisitively.
He didn’t look any different from before, but she felt that something had changed. “What’re you talking about? I’m the same old me.”
“I just get the feeling that you lived a simple and carefree life before. Now, you’re burdened with so many things…” Brandon’s eyes were full of affection and sympathy. “But I promise you, Janet, I’ll regain my memories. I don’t want to miss anything about you. You’re very precious to me.”
A lump formed in Janet’s throat. She smiled, eyes glistening with tears.
Brandon sounded so sincere. In the past, he seldom spoke out his feelings like this. It never occurred to Janet that he valued their relationship that much.
It was this relationship that made them both grow up.
But getting Brandon’s memory back was no easy feat, and Janet was afraid to hope. After all, the higher the expectation, the more disappointed one might be in the end.
Janet wanted to brighten up the gloomy atmosphere, so she snorted sardonically. “You don’t know how stupid I was before. I used to have a sister who always bullied me. And I never had the balls to stand up to her until later.”
“Really? What happened?” Brandon asked, his eyes lighting up in intrigue.
The two sat on the sofa as Janet recounted what had happened before with the Lind family, all the way until she met Brandon.
As she talked away, she also made up her mind to protect Brandon and help him regain their memories.
