The Silent Wife novel (Rachel and Justin) novel Chapter 22

Chapter 22

Rachel was dishing up some desserts in the kitchen when Amber suddenly came in. “Let me help you, Rachel.”

Rachel’s back froze, and she subconsciously took a step back to keep a safe distance from Amber. Amber looked at her with her head tilted to one side and asked, “What’s with that look on your face? Are you afraid that I’ll eat you alive?”

Rachel signed, You don’t have to pretend to be kind to me. You’re the one behind the news, aren’t you? Rachel was good-tempered, but she had always had a clear understanding of things.

“What do I have to do with something you’ve done yourself?” Amber snorted coldly with her arms folded across her chest. “You should’ve seen clearly by way of this incident that you’re unwelcome in the Burton Residence. Why would you ask for trouble by insisting on staying?”

Rachel looked at her and explained dryly. You and Dad arranged for me to marry into the Burton Family

“Yeah, that’s right, but I didn’t know what kind of person Justin was back then. Now it seems to me that Dad’s move is as wrong as wrong can be. As his daughter, I should help him correct his mistakes.”

You should say that to Dad. The look in Rachel’s eyes was determined. If Jefferey wanted her to leave the Burton Family, she would definitely leave at once without a word. As long as her grandmother’s life wouldn’t be endangered, she would not stay in the Burton Residence with her heart in her mouth even for a moment longer.

However, Amber misunderstood what Rachel meant, and her face fell at once. “Are you trying to pressure me using Dad? What do you think you are? Do you think he married you into the Burton Family because he thinks highly of you?”

Rachel frowned. What sort of logic does she have? Did she become dull while studying abroad? They disliked Justin for his ugly appearance, but they had to depend on the Burton Family. Hence, they secretly substituted Amber with me and plunged me into this abyss of suffering. What does she mean by saying that Dad thinks highly of me?

Just then, Amber added, “I’m telling you, Rachel – Justin is mine. The status of Mrs. Burton should have belonged to me, so you should give up the idea as soon as possible. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being unpleasant with you. I have shown you mercy this time!”

Has she shown me mercy? Rachel thought to herself. She glared at Amber and wanted to refute the latter at first, but she didn’t want to make this a bigger deal than it was. What do you want me to do?

“I want you to ask Justin for a divorce and leave the Burton Family.”

That’s impossible. Rachel shook her head.

“In that case, don’t blame me for being unpleasant with you, Rachel. Don’t forget that I have got something else on you even if the matter with the PE teacher is false!”

Rachel knitted her brows.

“I heard that Hans has returned to the country. If Justin learns about that matter…” Amber’s eyes were full of cold sarcasm.

Don’t talk nonsense! At the mention of the name, Rachel’s face suddenly became even paler, and her hand trembled slightly as she held the corner of the table with it to support herself. I haven’t been in touch with Hans for a long time. Seeing that Amber refused to give up, she clenched her fists before the look in her eyes gradually turned calm. If you insist on doing so, then I guarantee you that you won’t be able to marry into the Burton Family even if I leave the place.  

“What do you mean by that?”


Rachel signed back. I don’t want to fight with you over anything. As long as Dad agrees to it, I’ll leave the Burton Family at once, so don’t force me! Even a worm would turn, and Rachel looked quietly at Amber with calm and powerful eyes. Since Jefferey couldn’t do anything with Amber, Rachel was under pressure from both of them. She couldn’t keep awaiting her doom in such a way; if she really caused

Amber stretched out her hand exasperatedly and tried to snatch Rachel’s cell phone. “Give me your cell phone!” I have been careless, and I need to get rid of this voice recording! she thought to herself.

Upon seeing this, Amber became even more anxious. While Rachel was unprepared, she snatched the cell phone from her and threw it directly into the kitchen sink. The cell phone was instantly submerged under the running water with a splash. Then, as they were scrambling for the cell phone, Amber unexpectedly hugged Rachel right away before both of them fell onto the ground. “Aaah-” Her scream reverberated around the kitchen.
