The Silent Wife novel (Rachel and Justin) novel Chapter 7

Amber told Sue the entire story from A to Z in an innocent demeanor, labeling Rachel as a vain and scheming woman who had coaxed her younger sister. As she stood beside them, Rachel watched Amber’s pretentious act coldly with an expressionless face. She didn’t defend herself under Sue’s disgusted and contemptuous gaze, for she knew it was unnecessary to do that. Since Sue didn’t like her, she would never believe her.

As she expected, Sue looked askance at her as though she was looking at something filthy. “No wonder you don’t want to leave—you’re after the Burtons’ family fortune. What a vain and scheming b*tch you are!”

Amber smiled smugly upon seeing this. Then, she moved close to Rachel and whispered in a voice audible to only both of them, “Dad said you must go along with me.”

Rachel turned her head suddenly, and her pupils shrank. What do you want to do?

Naturally, Amber could understand Rachel’s sign language. She smiled and replied in a whisper, “You don’t have to care about that. You just have to go along with me, or else… I’ll tell Dad about it.”

Seeing how the sisters were communicating, Sue looked at Amber and asked in puzzlement, “What did she say to you?”

Amber acted worried as she sighed and said, “Rachel hates me now. I’m apologizing to her since I didn’t do it on purpose.”

Sue let out a cold snort. “What a disgusting woman you are! I have seen many scheming b*tches who try to climb the social ladder by marrying above their station, but it’s my first time seeing such an annoying mute.”

Rachel’s heart had gone numb after hearing so many hurtful remarks.

In the ensuing time, Sue softened her attitude toward Amber, and they soon talked and laughed while chatting. After all, compared to the mute Rachel, Amber was more to Sue’s liking. Moreover, she had a silver tongue and made Sue happy with just a few words. On the contrary, Rachel seemed like an unconcerned outsider.

In the evening, Justin came back. Apart from being dressed scrupulously in a black suit with no creases, he had his short hair slicked back neatly which revealed his attractive forehead. He looked very much like a business tycoon; despite the scary scar on his face, the way he pursed his thin lips looked very masculine and noble.

Amber was stunned the instant she saw him. Rumor had it that Justin was an extremely ugly man, and Amber believed it, but she didn’t expect him to still be so handsome even with a scar on his face!
