The Silent Wife novel (Rachel and Justin) novel Chapter 6

Meanwhile, the atmosphere in the Hudson Residence was tense. After answering the phone call, Jefferey paced back and forth in the living room with a sullen look on his face.

Just then, Amber came back from outside and was puzzled at the sight of this. “Dad?”

Jefferey smashed a mug in anger. “What an idiot Rachel is! The photos of the contract she sent to me are all fake! She must have been caught by Justin! I was actually careless! The company’s share prices have plummeted, and it won’t be long before the company loses more than tens of millions.”

Amber was so shocked that she dropped the handbag in her hand. She asked hurriedly, “How did this happen? Are there any solutions?”

Jefferey thought for a long time with a grim expression. Then, he looked at her meaningfully and said, “Only you can help me, Amber.”


Jefferey nodded. “Yes. Rachel probably angered Justin by marrying him in your stead, which is why he’s taking revenge on us Hudsons in such a way. Unfortunately, I’m not someone at his disposal! Amber, don’t you fancy Sue’s son, Julian? As long as you can make him side with you, I’ll have a way to help him gain possession of Justin’s entire wealth. By then, wouldn’t everything the Burtons own belong to our family instead? Ha… Since Justin has the guts to treat me like this, I’ll make him pay a heavy price!”

“Can you really ruin Justin, Dad?”

When he saw how his daughter doubted his words, Jefferey sneered and said, “Of course. With Rachel as my pawn, what should I be afraid of? Hence, you must go to the Burton Residence as soon as possible—you must waste no time.”

However, Amber instantly hesitated when she heard Jefferey asking her to go to the Burton Residence. “Here’s the thing, Dad… I have no problem with seducing Julian. After all, I don’t mind doing so since he’s an excellent young man, but… what if that ugly monster named Justin takes liberties with me? I heard that he likes me, so I’m afraid that he might take advantage of me, Dad.”

Since Jefferey knew what she was worried about, he patted her hand and comforted her by saying, “Don’t worry. Butter Sue up first when you’re at the Burton Residence. If Justin does something to you, ask Rachel to come out and act as your shield—she wouldn’t dare to refuse helping you. Moreover, you can take advantage of her to make Julian yours.”

Amber bit her lip in reluctance. In the end, however, she agreed to it for the sake of her family’s business.

When Rachel got up in the morning, she found that Justin hadn’t come back all night. As such, she breathed a sigh of relief. She didn’t know how to face him at present, so she felt more relieved by not seeing him for the time being.
