Chapter 1: Cheating On Her. “I have given myself to you. Why don’t you break up with Janet?” the woman asked in a seductive, breathless voice. She was. half-naked and hovering above a man. “Don't mention her name when we are making out. ” The man was so excited that he squeezed the woman’s breasts and moaned. in pleasure. The woman seemed dissatisfied as she didn’t get the answer she wanted. “No way! She is an adopted daughter — even our dog. holds a more important position in our family than she does. What's so good about her?”. The man didn’t say anything. He gripped the woman’s waist and thrust harder, which made her scream and moan his name. Janet Lind stood in front of the door, listening to everything in the room. Her tired eyes turned cold as she understood what was. going on. She had just returned from the hospital. Hannah, who had raised Janet ever since she was a child, was diagnosed with advanced liver cirrhosis three months ago. The. woman needed a liver transplant right away. Janet had to gather the money to pay the medical expenses. To make her situation worse, her younger sister hooked up with her boyfriend. Janet felt her life was falling apart. “Did you hear me? You have to tell me your decision tonight. It’s either her or me. The choice is yours. ” Jocelyn Lind pounded on. Steve Carter’s chest, desperate to hear his answer. Janet kicked the door open and glared at the couple. “Let me save you the trouble. He is just a man. You can have him if you. want. Although Janet sounded nonchalant, her heart broke to watch her boyfriend cheat on her with her sister. Steve was Janet's college classmate. He was a handsome man from a wealthy family. He had chased after Janet for three. years. He had confessed his love to her again right before their graduation. It was on the playground of their college. Many people were around, and almost all the students had witnessed the romantic. scene. The crowd cheered, and Janet finally agreed to be his girlfriend. The pain of betrayal crushed her. Looking at the two people in front of her, Janet clenched her fists, her nails sinking into her. flesh. Steve hurriedly pushed Jocelyn away, put on his pants, and got out of the bed. Jocelyn almost fell down. Janet’s words ignited her anger. She had put a lot of effort into hooking up with a wealthy, handsome man like Steve. Janet had won his heart without doing anything, which infuriated Jocelyn. After all, Jane t was just an ad optive daughter. “What the hell are you saying? You sound like you dumped Steve. It’s Steve who d umped you, bitch!” Jocelyn sneered as she . pulled the quilt closer to her body

Then, she looked at Steve and asked, “Steve, wh at did you say to me just now? Tell that to . Ja ne t!” . Steve had slept with Jocelyn purely out of impulse. The woman had seduced him, and he lost control of himself. He kneeled and grabbed Janet's wr ist. “Janet, please forgive me. I didn’t know what I was thinking. Although tears filled her eyes, Janet look ed at him with disgust. Once Janet set her mind to something, no one could change it. She withdrew her hand from Steve's hold. “I 'm sorry, Steve. I don’t want anything that ’s tainted by Jocelyn. You two are a perfect . match. Let’s br eak up. Jocelyn was taken aback. Steve was on th e verge of a breakdown, but there was not even a trace of sadness on Janet's face. Anger surged through her v eins because she didn’t ac hieve what she had wanted. Janet didn’t have the time to talk to th em. Jocelyn had always been competing wi th her ever since they were kids and she . enjoyed taking away whatever belonged to Janet. She used to snatch Janet's toys. Now that they had grown up, she snatched . her boy friend as well. Janet was used to it. She was only worried about Han nah's medical expenses now. Just as she was about to lea ve, she heard the clacking of footsteps from the corridor. “It's late at ni ght. What's with all the noise?” . Janet’s adopted parents, Bernie Lind and Fiona Duncan, rushed o ver after hearing the commotion. Bernie walked into the room first. His ey es widened in horror when he saw his daug hter sitting on the bed wearing nothing — . except for the quilt wrapped around her. “What the hell are you doing? You are goi ng to get married soon. What are you doing . with anoth er man?” h e bellowed. Jocelyn hugged herself and looked at Bernie with bloodshot eyes. She gri tted her teeth to suppress her rage. The Lester family and the Lind family h ad an agreement to get their kids marri ed when they grew up. Her fiance was an . illegitimate child, and the Lester family had driven him out of the house a long ti me ago. He was poor and didn’t even have a . decent job. He was just an idler who wasted his time doing nothing. Jocelyn didn’t want to marry him. She felt she de served someone better than him. “I'm pregnant!” Jocelyn said, pointing at S teve. “l am pregnant with his child. So I ca n’t marry anyone else. You better cancel the . wed din g. Steve was dumbfounded. He had s lept with Jocelyn only a few ti mes. How could she get pregnant? . “What nonsense! You must marry into the Lester family!” Bernie was fuming with r age. He wanted to slap Jocelyn for acting

st up id. After all, the wedding was a matter of his p restige. What could he tell the Lester family if they asked the reason for calling off the . we ddi ng? . Fiona protectively stood in front of her daughter. She was protective of Jocelyn and seldom scolded her. Her husband was . seething mad, and s he couldn't watch h im shout at Jocelyn. “Bernie, why are you mad at Jocelyn?” Fio na cried. “Janet is also a daughter of th e Lind family. She can also marry into the . Leste r fam ily. Bernie and Fiona didn’t have any child for t he first few years after they got married. D ue to the pressure of the elders of the Lind . family, they had to adopt Janet. Years later, Fiona finally got pr egnant and gave birth to Jocelyn. The whole thing only made her hate Janet even more. Janet's existence was proof of her infertility. The mere sight of her . adopted d aughter ir ked Fiona. After giving birth to Jocelyn, Fiona became partial toward h er daughter and despised Janet. Later, as time went by, Janet grew up to be a better woman than her daughter in e very aspect. That seemed to intensify her . hatred fo r Janet e ven more. Fiona’s words enraged Janet. “You had agr eed to get Jocelyn married into the Lester family, not me,” she roared. “Why are you . planning to get me married j ust because your sweet daught er has been banging someone?” . “We have raised you all these years. It’s t ime for you to repay our kindness, Janet,” F iona said in a low voice, her eyes twinkling . with cunningness. “Don’t you want that m aid to have the surgery? We will pay for the medical expenses as long as you marry . into the Leste r family in pla ce of Jocelyn. Acomplacent smile emerged on Jocelyn’s fac e. She felt Janet and the illegitimate son of the Lester family would be perfect for . eac h ot her. Janet gritted her teeth as Fiona’s words infuriated her. However, the doctor’s wor ds flashed in her mind. Hannah didn’t have . much time left. Janet had just graduated and couldn't afford to pa y for Hannah's treatment. Although Bernie and Fiona adopted Janet, t hey never really cared about her. Hannah, the maid of the Lind family, raised Janet. Hannah was like the grandm other Janet never had. She couldn't leave her alone. Noticing her hesitation, Fiona walked up to Janet. “You will have to marry someon e in the future. Why don’t you help us by . marrying the son of the Lester family? I will give you the mon ey as soon as you get married. Janet’s feet trembled as everyone i n the room stared at her. She neede d money to pay Hannah's medical fee. Tears finally streamed down her cheek s. She lowered her head and replied i n a low voice. “Okay, I'll marry him
