My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 188: You Lost
Wendy smiled slyly and said, “If Eris turns out to be kind as you think, then you win.I’ll quit the showbiz and drop my career.But if I win-—”
“No way!” Brian interrupted.
He was confident that Wendy was wrong and he would prove it.
“Eris is a great woman.”
“I’m afraid it’s not up to you to decide.Let me finish.”
“Fine.Say your terms.”
“If you’re wrong about her, you’ll break up with her.”
Brian cast a meaningful look at Wendy upon hearing that.
He surmised that she was doing this because she still had feelings for him.
Nevertheless, he had known Eris long enough to know that she was genuine and kind, so he agreed without a second thought.
“Are you sure you won’t go back on your word?”
Wendy was amused at how confident Brian was.She could not help but chuckle at his foolishness.
Well, in this case, she would show him Eris’ true colors.She wanted to see the look of horror on his face once he realized that he was wrong all along.
With that, Wendy took out her phone and scrolled through her contacts.
While doing so, she locked at Brian and said, “No matter what I say, keep your mouth shut.Do you understand?”
Wendy found Eris’ number a couple of seconds later.
Then, with a sly smile, she dialed the number and turned the speaker on.
Ring! Ring! Ring!
After a couple of rings, the call was connected.
Eris’ gentle voice came from the other end of the line.
Wendy waited for Eris’ response.
To Brian’s surprise, a wave of maniacal laughter came booming from the speaker.
“Ha-ha! Wendy, why did you call me? Have you gone desperate?”
Wendy looked at Brian, whose eyes were wide in shock.
“Eris, how could you be so cruel? Are you satisfied with what you’ve done to me?” she asked with feigned sadness and desperation.
“Satisfied? Ha! I’m not done yet! You brought this to yourself.Didn’t you join my cast so you could compete with me for Brian? I’ll tell you what.No ******* way! I’ll make sure you get kicked out of showbiz so that you’ll never be able to seduce men.”
Brian stiffened in the spot.
Wendy was enjoying this little skit of hers that she no longer took a look at Brian.
“What can I do to make you stop, Eris?” she asked as though she were pleading.
“Stop? You wish!”
“Eris, we’re sisters! How can you be so cruel and heartless to your family?”
“Now you’re talking about family with me.Ha-ha! You’re so funny, Wendy.Do you really think that we’re sisters?”
“Eris, don’t push me too hard!”
“I don’t care about what you feel.That’s what you get for thinking that we’re on the same level.Humph! Weren’t you confident when you signed the contract with Glory Media? Why hasn’t your company defended you after your scandal got exposed? Oh no! Have they given up on you? Don’t tell me Luke didn’t want to back you up.Glory Media is Oliver Group’s subsidiary.Why isn’t Luke helping you?”
Wendy did not say a word.She made it seem that she was speechless when in reality, she was rejoicing.
The more Eris taunted Wendy, the more excited she sounded.
“My dear sister, I’ll ask you again.Did that ******* Luke abandon you? Ha-ha! Do you really think that he likes you just because he spends money on you? What a fool!”
“Eris, shut up!”
“Why? Are you embarrassed? I’ll tell you what.You’re still too young to fight against me.Just wait and see.This is just the beginning.The rest is yet to come.”
“What else are you going to do?” Wendy asked in a trembling voice.
“Don’t worry, my dear sister.You’ll know it when it happens.” Upon saying that, Eris hung up the phone.
Wendy put the phone back into her handbag and looked at Brian with raised eyebrows.His body was still stiff from what he had heard.
‘’How is this possible? How could that person behind that voice be Eris? Eris is kind and sincere.How could she be like that— vicious and vengeful?’’
No matter how much he wanted to deny, the evidence could not lie.It was Eris’ voice.He had listened to her voice for years that it was already engraved in his mind.
At that moment, there was only one thought in Brian’s mind: Eris deceived him.
She would call Wendy her sister when she was talking to him.
What was more, she would talk so kindly of Wendy as though she owed something and wanted to make it up to her sister.
It was only then that Brian realized that Eris was actually mean and evil whenever he was not with her.
To make things worse, she always pretended to be innocent in front of the media.
Brian was at a loss.
He could not help but recall everything Eris had told him and wondered if they were true or just lies.
‘’Is everything she said and did to me nothing but deception?’’
Once the seed of doubt was planted, it would take root and sprout uncontrollably.
Wendy gazed at Brian’s ashen face and reminded him, “You lost.”
“Keep your promise!”
Brian could not utter a word.
His mind was in a mess.
He had known Eris for six years.
Minus their secret romance, they had been together for four years.
In those years, her image as a kind-hearted woman was ingrained in his heart.
He had always regarded her as pure and sincere.
But, everything changed in a blink of an eye.
Brian could not accept it.
“Wendy, give me some time.I need to calm down first.”
“Sure.” Wendy nodded.
She then checked the time on her phone and found that it was time to go.
“Take your time.Anyway, I have to leave now.I have a scene to be filmed in the afternoon.”
“Wendy…” Brian reached out to stop her.
However, Wendy had already put on her sunglasses and mask and left without looking back.
She knew very well where Eris’ Achilles’ heel was.
It was Brian.
She had attached great importance to her beloved man.
Eris had been always possessive of him.
Now that he had proposed to Eris, she was only one step away from marrying him.
Or so she thought.
If Brian broke up with Eris, Wendy could not imagine how devastated Eris would be.
She could not wait for that moment.
In the cafe Brian did not know how long he had been sitting there all alone.
It was not until the waiter asked him if he wanted a refill of his glass of coffee that Brian came to his senses.
Still hung up with what he had heard a while ago, he randomly selected several snacks on the menu.
“Please wait a moment, sir.”
The waited left the private room with the order.
Brian finally made up his mind.He took out his mobile phone and dialed Eris’ number.
As soon as the call connected, Eris’s pleasant voice came from the phone.
“Brian, why did you call me all of a sudden?” she asked excitedly.
Her voice was completely different from a while ago when she was talking to Wendy.
Brian remembered her deceit again, so he closed his eyes to get ahold of himself.
“Are you free? I’m in the cafe near the shooting site.I’ve ordered your favorite food.Would you like to come and eat with me?”
“Now?” Eris asked, a hint of hesitation in her voice.
“Why? Are you busy right now?”
This morning, after the news about Wendy’s past broke out, Eris figured out there would be a commotion in the shooting site.
To avoid that, she said she was sick and asked Carter if she could take a day off.If she went to shooting site and ran into Carter, it would be embarrassing.But Brian was asking her out.
How could she refuse him? After hesitating for a moment, Wendy finally decided “Brian, send me the location.I’ll be there as soon as I can.”
