The Substitute Wife My Poor Husband is a Billionaire Chapter 610 Life Is Unpredictable
Ethan wasn’t in a rush. He took the menu and leafed through it unhurriedly. “Let’s not talk business at the table. Let’s have dinner first.”
Tasha’s mouth snapped shut instantly. Embarrassed, she picked up the glass on the table and took a sip of water to calm herself down.
This man was different from what she had imagined. Even though he was just sitting there, he had an overwhelming aura about him. The delicate and beautiful woman next to him, on the other hand, looked very approachable and even a little familiar. Tasha couldn’t help but steal a few more glances at her.
Just then, the woman looked at her, and the two’s eyes met.
Tilting her head to the side curiously, Janet asked with a smile, “Don‘t you remember me? We studied at the same university.” Tasha put down the glass and shook her head in surprise. “Mrs. Larson, did you also major in fashion design?” Such a beautiful woman should‘ve been one of the campus belles.
Why didn‘t she remember her at all? Janet chuckled. “We joined the same design competition, remember? Well, my name at the time was Janet Lind. Do you remember?” As Tasha stared at the smiling face of the woman in front of her, the memory of the innocent young girl gradually surfaced in her mind. “You‘ve changed!” Tasha smiled in pleasant surprise.
What a small world! How could she have forgotten about the Janet Lind? At the time, Janet‘s knack for fashion design had impressed her greatly. It was just that Janet didn‘t wear make–up back then. Now she wore light makeup, but it made all the difference. Tasha had seen clips of Janet‘s and Brandon‘s wedding, but she hadn‘t recognized her at all. It could only be said that a woman living happily in love would really bloom.
And this was definitely true for Janet. Tasha sighed heavily. “I never thought we‘d meet again, Janet. You studied so hard back in the day, all the while balancing studies with a part–time job. Now, you‘re the wife of a big time CEO. Looks like all your hard work paid off!” She smiled bitterly, thinking that life was really unpredictable. “You married into the Lester family. Your husband is also rich and powerful. Isn‘t that good?” Janet tried to comfort her. Tasha was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Why did she envy her now?
“L… Well, to put it simply, I married the wrong person. Even if he‘s rich and powerful what does that matter if he‘s cold and heartless?” Tasha looked down sadly. Janet reached across the table and held Tasha‘s hand. “Tasha, why‘d you come to us? Is there anything we can do for you?” Looking at Janet‘s concerned expression, Tasha couldn‘t help but burst into tears. “Seth is a jerk. I‘m pregnant, but he forced me to divorce him. As if the divorce isn‘t enough, he plans to take the baby away once it‘s born.” Janet was shocked to hear that.
She had heard that Seth had a new girlfriend in Seacisco, but she had no idea that he also had a pregnant wife! She glanced at Ethan and then turned to comfort Tasha. She said through gritted teeth, “Seth has gone too far. You can‘t give the child to him!” Tasha shook her head firmly. “Don‘t worry.
I‘ve thought it over and there‘s no way I‘ll let him raise my child. But I don‘t have the power to fight him, and the Javis family is no longer what it used to be. That being said, I had no choice but to ask you guys for help.” Only then did Ethan put down the menu. He was not too surprised.
He didn‘t have many interactions with Seth before, but he knew for a fact that Seth was not as nice and gentle as he looked. In fact, Seth was proud and conceited. He had been regarded as the best heir of the younger generation in the Lester family ever since he was a child. He was sent abroad at the age of five or six, and as a result, he had never experienced the love of a parent. Maybe it was because of this that he eventually decided to shut himself off.
In Ethan‘s opinion, Seth was the most unfeeling person in the Lester family, bordering on psychopathic. He was even crueler than Elissa and Ritchie, and his means were more ruthless than that of Patrick. Ethan looked at Tasha steadily and asked, “What are you planning to do?” Tasha looked at him and pleaded, “I wanted to cooperate with you to defeat Seth, but you have to promise me that in the end, I‘ll be able to escape the Lester family with my child.”
