The Silent Wife novel (Rachel and Justin) novel Chapter 36

Chapter 36

Having noticed that Rachel seemed doubtful, the property agent quickly said, “If you think it’s expensive, the price is still negotiable. I can bring the price down to two thousand.”

At once, she widened her eyes in disbelief at what she just heard.

She hadn’t even said anything, and yet the property agent lowered the price by a thousand?

That’s ridiculous!

Similarly, Julian sensed that something was off, so he asked straightforwardly, “Are there any problems with this unit?”

“What do you mean by that, sir? There isn’t any place that is more suitable within three miles. There are no problems with this unit–it’s even new!  (This novel will be daily updtaed at www.noveljar.com) The price is also very affordable.”

“Based on what you said and what we see, the rental of this house is the problem.”

When the property agent heard that, his face froze. Looking at Rachel with a questioning face, he asked, “Do you two think that it’s too cheap?”

Rachel then nodded honestly.

“This.” The property agent scratched the back of his head immediately. “Two thousand isn’t so bad…”

At this moment, Rachel looked up the rental of houses within the area on her phone only to find out that the average rental was around fifteen thousand. That made her even more suspicious.

Tugging on Julian’s sleeve, she shook her head.

Understanding what she meant, he announced, “We want to have a look at other places first. We’ll decide again later.”

With that, he was prepared to leave with Rachel.

Anxious that they might leave, the property agent called out to them. “Why don’t you name a price? You can pay any price and rent it.”

That rendered them speechless.

When they were back in the car, Rachel took a look at the other houses and their respective rentals that were sent by the same property agent. It only left a frown on her face.

Was the market price so bad these days or was the property agent just bad at his job? Even for a unit with four rooms and two living rooms, the monthly rental was below three thousand.

‘Sorry, I don’t think any of the houses you offered suit me.’

She replied to the text message courteously.

In response, the property agent said, ‘What kind of houses are you looking for? I have all kinds of variety.’

She didn’t reply to him anymore. Looking at the conversation on her phone, she silently sighed.

To be frank, she didn’t have much money at the moment. All she could afford was a small house.

Julian could see the content displayed on her phone screen, so he commented, “This property agent is so weird. (This novel will be daily updtaed at www.noveljar.com) There are all sorts of people these days. It’s lucky that I came with you today. Who knows

what his ulterior motive is.”

In response, she nodded in agreement before she quickly blocked the property agent with a flick of the finger

“You shouldn’t rush when looking for houses. Don’t worry, I’ll settle this issue for you.”

‘There’s no need, thank you. I can do it on my own!

After thanking him, she continued to scroll through her phone to look for information regarding house rentals online.

She really didn’t want to bother him with anything else anymore.

Meanwhile, Justin was reading through documents in his office.

After his assistant, Frankie, got a call, he came over to report tentatively. “Mr. Burton, there were some complications with the agent. He got blocked by Mrs. Burton.”

Furrowing his brows, he lamented, “Such a small matter, yet they can’t even do it right.”

Hearing that, Frankie was breaking out in cold sweat. “It’s mainly because the houses you own aren’t exactly suitable to be rented out. It’s also hard to match the price with the market ratings. This…”

Seeing that Justin had a cold, stoic look on, Frankie quickly added, “I’ll figure something out.”

That seemed to satisfy the man more than the excuses.

Frankie then sighed to himself.

Why is my boss doing this to me? They’re already married, and there’s nothing wrong with taking care of his own wife. Why can’t he just arrange it for her? Why does he have to make it so much more complicated?


“Right, Mr. Burton, Old Mr. Burton called earlier in the afternoon when you were in a meeting.”

“Oh,” he acknowledged. “What did my grandpa say?”

“Old Mr. Burton is at the summer villa. He has invited you over to have a meal this weekend.”

He’s home?
