Substitute Marriage With the Illegitimate Son novel Chapter 130

Ethan carefully carried Janet into the car. As he laid her down on the backseat gently, the cool breeze of early autumn blew on her ruddy cheeks.

"Do you know who I am?" he whispered. Seeing Janet in such a state made Ethan feel terrible.

He ran his fingers through Janet's messy hair. There were two obvious palm marks on Janet's face, and there was a streak of blood at the corner of her mouth.

His heart ached so much that he didn't dare to touch Janet's face. Holding Janet's shivering body in his arms, he gently tried to comfort her. "It's okay now. I'm here. You're safe. Don't cry."

Janet clenched the waistcoat of Ethan's striped suit and looked up at him, tears rolling down her cheeks.

Only then did she return to her senses. She threw herself into Ethan's arms and sobbed, "Oh, Ethan, it's really you..."

"Yes, Janet. It's me." Ethan was very patient. He gently fixed the suit jacket he put on her and put his arm around her shoulders. With his head slightly lowered, he was able to press his forehead against hers.

He kissed her earlobe gently. "Does it still hurt?" Janet couldn't answer him. She could only sob uncontrollably and bury her face into Ethan's chest.

It was as though a boat that had sailed alone for so long had finally found a harbor amidst a violent storm.

Ethan rubbed her back reassuringly and gestured at his men to bring some tissue.

His men, on the other hand, were in a state of shock.

Their boss had always been an icy cold, serious man. Yet here he was now, wiping the tears of a woman as though he was patiently coaxing an aggrieved child.

"Your eyes are all red and puffy from the crying. They won't look pretty for a while," he whispered in a low voice. Only Janet could hear him.

At that, the woman stopped crying abruptly. Her teary eyes turned angry.

"Calm down, babe. You look good no matter what—even if your eyes are red and puffy. So stop crying. It hurts me to see you cry." Seeing that she still had the energy to glare at him, Ethan finally heaved a sigh of relief.
