Linda felt that she was about to fall apart. She was shaken violently by John, and her slender arms were clenched more and more tightly by his powerful hands.

"Sorry, I lied. I lied to you. But you also lied. You know why your head hurts! "

Linda raised her voice and questioned angrily.

John kept silent and slowly loosened his hand.

The bedroom was quiet again. He picked up the cigarette on the table and lit it up, and his cold eyes darkened under the bright light.

A wisp of smoke floated in the moonlight. John turned around, leaned against the table, waved his hand and pointed ahead, "Sit down first!"

Slowly, Linda walked to the bedside and sat down. Her mind seemed to be immersed in water, suppressed by a strong pressure.

She calmed down and asked in confusion, "John, tell me, who gave you the photo?"

Hearing Linda's question, John took a deep drag on his cigarette. His face was as dark as a black lake.

"You ask me? How do I know? " John's voice sounded mean but sincere, "In the morning meeting, Anne brought it to me from the reception, and the photo was put in an envelope."

His answer was like a bolt from the blue.

A sharp pain came from her temple. Linda frowned and didn't expect that they would come so soon.

A chill rose in Linda's heart. Maybe Lisa had come to this city.

Or her brother, James.

Linda thought the plan was perfect, but four years later, they were found.

John slowly exhaled the smoke from his mouth, and stared at Linda with his cold eyes. He snapped, "It's your turn. I have to hear a satisfactory answer!"

"Because… The person on the photo belongs to the past. Everything was caused by her. I don't want to… Our life will be disturbed... " Linda said in a timid voice. She was really scared by him.

Squinting his cold eyes, John thought of the strange number on her phone.

"Is this your reply? So every word on the message is true? " John sneered, and his voice was full of danger.

Linda sat on the edge of the bed in silence.

The sound of extinguishing the cigarette rang in the ashtray. John took a deep breath and put the cigarette in the ashtray.

Then he rushed to Linda with his cold eyes.

He had no intention of lying to his wife.

But John had to figure out why the photo made him tremble and why Linda had never mentioned this woman to him in the past four years.

"Tell me, who is the woman on the photo?" John's voice was as cold as ice, and his fists made a clear sound.

"John, if you love me, you'd better stop asking about the past. We are living a happy life now, aren't we?" Linda pursed her lips and smiled bitterly. Tears streamed down her cheeks when she thought of her previous forbearance and grievance.

She couldn't imagine what would happen when John regained his memory one day.

As far as Linda could remember, Lisa had imputed the death of John's mother to her.

She would never forget John's ferocious face, strangling her throat and asking her to die with his mother.

"Yes, I am very happy." John sneered, and the anger in his eyes reached the verge of breaking down.

Then his eyes darkened. He grabbed Linda's collar and roared, "But I'm happy because I know nothing about everything! I don't even know who I am. Do you take me as a fool? Answer me! "

The harsh voice echoed in Linda's ears, and her temples were painful as if she was pierced by a needle. She covered her face and cried bitterly, "If you think of the past, our peaceful life will be gone, and you will still be as painful as before and suffer a lot."

John's eyes narrowed. He pulled her chin and said firmly, "This is my business. It has nothing to do with you! I have to know who I am. This is my basic right when I was born! "

With tearful eyes, Linda sneered sadly. This day finally came…

"Okay, I'll tell you! If you regret one day, remember that this is your own choice! " She laughed loudly, which sounded particularly sad in the cool night.

John didn't change his expression and stared at her tearful face.

Linda bit her lips and seemed to have made up her mind.

She tried to keep calm and said, "John, we moved to L City later. We used to live in Jin City. You are not an orphan and have never been poor. On the contrary, you are the most enviable man in Jin City... "

Four years ago, when John took over the Cheng Group, he became the youngest president in Jin City.

In this city, he had an enviable family and blessed love until Lisa appeared.

"Go on. Who are you? You told me that you grew up in an orphanage. " John said coldly.

Linda sighed and smiled bitterly. Who was she?

"We have watched a movie produced by the HY Entertainment Company on TV. My father is the boss of this company. We were classmates in college and were engaged before we graduated. But later, it was all ruined by that woman..."

Confused, John stared at Linda sharply, "You mean the woman on the photo has destroyed our relationship?"

Linda nodded and gently wiped away the tears on her face.

Hearing this, John suddenly grabbed his hair remorsefully, like a wild cat, but he still couldn't remember anything.

But he knew what kind of person Linda was and was willing to believe his wife.

John didn't ask any more questions. After a moment of silence, he suddenly held Linda in his arms and said apologetically, "I'm sorry, Linda. My attit

ude was bad just now. But don't worry. We have been together day and night for four years. No one can destroy our relationship again."

Although Linda was moved by his words, she couldn't calm down.

What should come must come. Would John still say that when he thought of everything?

Linda didn't expect that this night was the last time John had shown her his warmth.

In the following days, John went out early and came back late every day, for the reason that he was always very busy in the company.

He had less time at home. Every day, Linda prepared a dinner with expectations, and on the second day, she poured it into the trash can one by one.

John was indifferent to her. Every night when he went home late, he would fall asleep and leave early in the morning.

It was miserable for Linda to wait for him every day. Then, Linda couldn't reach John when she called him.

Linda endured for a week. She didn't want to deceive herself. She didn't want to deceive herself that John still loved the family as before and paid all his attention to her.

In the afternoon, it was raining outside.

Wearing a beige windbreaker, Linda drove to John's company.

"I'm sorry, Mrs. Linda. Mr. John is calling a client in his office." Anne's answer was ambiguous.

"It doesn't matter. Even if I enter without permission, he won't blame you." With a smile on her lips, Linda pushed the door open and walked in under Anne's helpless gaze.

It was cloudy outside and the light in the office was dim.

Sitting against the light, John leaned back on the seat and sipped coffee. The phone on the other side of the desk was in dead silence.

"John, Anne said you were talking on the phone. It seems that I misheard her." As soon as Linda entered the room, she directly exposed John's lie.

John smiled disapprovingly and said, "It's me who ask Anne to say that. Can I be alone?"

Linda sneered, pretended to understand and nodded. She walked to his desk unhurriedly.

Looking at the calm expression on John's face when he took a sip of coffee, she suddenly felt her throat tightened and couldn't say anything.

"It's raining today. Why do you come to the company?" John looked impatient.

"Nothing. I just passed by your company when I was shopping." Linda lied.

At this moment, in addition to the faint aroma of coffee in the air, she faintly smelled the sweet and greasy smell of lady perfume around John.

Linda lowered her head and thought for a while. Anne didn't have this kind of smell, and she seldom used perfume when she was free at home.

The only answer was that there had been another woman in the office not long ago.

Putting down the coffee, John's face softened, but his voice was still cold, "It's not a good day. Go home early. I'm going to entertain my client tonight."

As soon as he finished speaking, Linda frowned, raised her voice, and asked, "Is a female client? The perfume on her is so strong. Your suit is tainted with the perfume. "

John was stunned, with his pupils slightly narrowed, but his face was still calm.

After a moment of silence, he suddenly held Linda's soft hand and changed his attitude, "Don't think too much. There's just a female client coming to discuss a contract with me. I have such a virtuous wife. Do I need to flirt with other women outside?"

Taking her hand back slowly, Linda smiled and raised her tone on purpose, "In that case, we can invite your client to dinner tonight together. Didn't you often take me with you when you were in business before?"

John didn't go home for dinner for a week, and he entertained clients every day. In the past four years, he had never been so busy.

His words were too perfunctory. Perhaps for John, he didn't want to think about a reason to deceive Linda.

"What do you mean? If you don't believe me, just say it. Don't beat around the bush! " Suddenly, John was annoyed and turned around to stare at a corner of the desk.

"I don't doubt you. I just don't know since when I couldn't go out together with you." Linda retorted confidently.

She didn't want to admit that she was afraid, but now she really felt afraid.

The perfume on John lingered for a long time, and the sweet smell reminded her of the past.

In the past, this kind of ambiguous and charming smell haunted John, and Lisa liked this kind of perfume very much.

"Linda, you have changed!" John frowned and said disappointedly, "You've become unreasonable now!"

Linda was rendered speechless.

Then she couldn't help but laugh.

John felt that she had changed, but he seemed to have a good impression of himself.

"I'm unreasonable? Then why do you regard our home as a hotel this week? " Linda felt wronged and retorted.

John glanced at her coldly, picked up the coffee cup and drank it up.

"There's no point in talking more. I'm going to have a meeting now. It's up to you whether you go home or not."

After saying that, John stood up from the chair with cold eyes. Her tall and strong body brushed against the shoulder of Linda indifferently.

Bang! The office door was closed tightly.

All of a sudden, Linda turned around. At the same time, the sound of John's footsteps faded away.

She was left alone in the spacious office. Linda walked to the sofa and picked up a long blond hair on it. Her nose twitched as if she was soaked in jealousy.
