My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 146 Cool And Charming
Wendy felt like her head was about to explode. Sure, she knew that Brian and Ryan had the same surname. She had once made jokes about the possibility of the two of them being distantly related, but she never would have thought that Ryan was actually Brian’s uncle! She was shocked and
couldn‘t utter a single word. For a minute or so, the room remained silent, until Jeffrey stood up awkwardly, his hair a mess. He looked at Wendy’s gloomy face nervously and a little fearfully. “Wendy, I shouldn‘t have kept it from you...” Wendy took a deep breath. “So, I guess you knew I used to date Brian?” Feeling guilty as ****, Jeffrey nodded. Wendy shot him a disappointed look, and Jeffrey tripped all over his tongue to explain himself. “Just listen to me, Wendy! Yes, I did know about it but only for a while. Remember when I warned you to beware of Eris? You told me that she was your stepsister, so that’s when I realized…” He trailed off at the sight of Wendy‘s scowling expression. It just dawned on her that Jeffrey was Brian‘s brother, which made her feel even more like a fool. She rubbed her temples hard, taking two steps back. Jeffrey’s heart sank.
“Wendy…” He hastily took two steps towards her. “I thought you would cut me out of your life if I had told you. You can be pretty stubborn sometimes, you know.” Wendy just turned her head away from him. Jeffrey walked up to her and roared, “Listen here! I didn‘t even know you were dating Brian at that time! When you two were together, I was pursuing my career as a singer. I was so busy that I had no time to go home. I had never met you back then.” “Don’t you take that tone with me, ” Wendy snapped, slapping his hand away. Jeffrey was furious. ‘****!
What the **** does she want me to say?’ “You can‘t be that stupid! It was Brian that broke your heart back then. It had nothing to do with me. You can’t blame me for what my brother did!” Wendy rolled her eyes at him and asked, “You really think that‘s what’s happening here?” “I don‘t think so. It is plain for everyone to see!” Wendy didn’t even know how to respond to that accusation. ‘****!
What’s his problem?
LOOI ANU Lndlung Well, to be honest, I did think about that for a second when I found out Jeffrey and Brian are brothers, But I let it go immediately. Oh, ***. He really is right. It wasn‘t his fault my heart was shattered back then. I can‘t turn my back on him because his brother is an *******.‘ Seeing the nervous look on Jeffrey‘s face, she was torn between laughing and crying. She walked over and patted him on the shoulder. “I am sorry. You were right. I acted like a fool. But I promise our relationship won‘t change because of something Brian did to me all those years ago.” Jeffrey‘s shoulders sagged in relief. He brought a hand to his forehead and found it damp with sweat. He wiped the sweat off and chuckled inwardly.
That was more tiring than filming for a whole day. I was really scared for a moment there. But thankfully, Everything turned out just fine.’ Taking a deep breath, he said, “Singing here isn’t that appealing anymore. Let’s just go back early.” “Didn’t you say that Carter had something important to tell me?” Wendy asked. Jeffrey’s face turned bright red, betraying his guilt. “You lied to me?” Wendy growled.
“I had no other choice.”
“I will kill you!” The two of them bantered as if no one else was around, which made Brian livid. He clenched his fists and stood there silently. But seeing that his brother and Wendy were about to leave, he moved hastily to block their way. Wendy rolled her eyes at him. “Can I help you?” “Wendy…” Brian started, but she cut him off. “If you think that I still have feelings for you, then you need to pay a visit to your shrink! I’m not a *********. What you and Eris did to me was awful. You should be grateful that I have no desire to
get back at you. But get it through that thick scull of yours that you and I are done!” . Jeffrey was stunned by her reaction. ‘What on earth did Brian and Eris do to her?’ He was really confused. “Brian…” He wanted to say something but his brother didn‘t let him. “Bruce, shut your mouth.” ‘****!
Who is he to tell me what to do?’ Jeffery thought in anger. Pushing Wendy behind him, he squinted at Brian and growled, “What the **** did you do to hurt my Wendy? You know what, I don’t even care. Just know that from now on, if you mess with her, you mess with me!” Cool And Charming His protective stance really ticked off Brian. “Bruce! Maybe Wendy had her own reasons for getting close to you.” “Meaning what? Come on, Brian. Do you really think that she wants to get back with you?” Jeffery asked in a sarcastic tone. Running a hand through his hair, he added confidently, “Don‘t be such a narcissist! You know, we may be brothers, but I am much more handsome than you.” 1 Brian‘s face darkened. “Bruce...” “Let me finish!” Jeffery interrupted him. Then he begun to recite his advantages over Brian. Of course, he was just pretending to address Brian, when in fact, he was staring at Wendy the whole time. “I‘m not just more handsome than you, I am also more approachable. Although I am quick tempered sometimes, I am still better than you. You may look like a sweet gentleman, but we all know your heart is cold like ice! And there is one more thing I will always be better at than you.”
“And what is that?” Brian sneered.
“Money! I’ve been in the showbiz for many years now, so I dare say I am pretty rich. You, on the other hand, haven’t taken over the family company yet. And you may be the heir, but if something goes wrong and our parents change their minds, you will lose everything. And even if you did take over the family business, you still wouldn’t make as much money as I do!” “Bruce!” “I’m not done yet. Why so angry, brother? I am just giving you the facts” Jeffrey shrugged and went on. “To put it bluntly, you have to **** up to dad and mom. And you know they don‘t like people who work in showbiz. And there’s no changing their stubborn minds. So if you married a celebrity, they would despise her and probably cut you off! Isn’t that the reason you delayed your wedding with Eris? Just because you were worried about dad and mom’s reaction?” Jeffrey was spot on. Everything he said was true. Brian’s face darkened as his brother kept on talking. “But I’m nothing like you.” He winked at Wendy and continued, “I’ve always been the rebellious one. I never wanted to take over the family business. Dad and mom don’t hold any power over me. And when I find the right woman for me, I will definitely live with her away from our parents. I will never give them the chance to screw things up for me.” Wendy was looking at him in shock. Her eyes were wide and bright. “Jeffrey!” “What is it?” Jeffrey asked, frowning. “It‘s just... When did you get so cool and charming?” ,
“Ha!” A chuckle escaped Jeffrey’s throat and then he raised his chin and puffed his chest. Wendy burst into laughter.
She had to admit that Jeffrey was really awesome during his argument with Brian just now. Smiling still, Jeffrey looked at Brian and shrugged. “So, your theory was just disproved, brother. Because I’m better than you in every aspect. Any sensible woman would choose me over you!” <
