Revenge is Best Served… After Reborn Chapter 22

Chapter 22

Only James could be deceived by Nichole. After all, he had a soft spot for Nichole, which made it difficult for him to see the truth.

“Look, it’s not a big deal. Nichole still has classes today. I’ll take her to school. James gave Nichole a look that signaled it was time to leave.

Nichole looked grateful.

Bea, with a hint of coolness in her voice, said, “Today, I’m going shopping with Sophie. You seem free. Why don’t you come along?”

“But Nichole…

“Let Lee take her. You are, after all, the CEO of Burke International. Don’t demean yourself.” Bea had spoken

her mind.

Nichole bit her lip and said, “Mr. Burke, it’s fine if Lee takes me to school.”

Nichole bowed politely to Bea. Bea, however, was not impressed by the gesture.

James pursed his lips and said, “I’ll walk you out.”

Nichole nodded.

As James escorted Nichole out, Bea turned to Sophie. “James is young and easily fooled by such a sly temptress. You should keep a closer eye!”

Sophie nodded outwardly, but inwardly, she hoped their relationship would progress even faster:

“I’ve noticed you’ve been putting less effort into winning James’s heart lately,” Bea said, taking Sophie’s hand. “You need to capture his heart quickly, or better yet, have a chubby little baby. Once you have a child, you can tie a man’s heart forever.”

“I understand, Grandma.” Sophie smiled in response.

In reality, capturing James’ heart was already an impossibility, much less having his child.

James didn’t love her, and even though they were married, they had never shared a bed, so how could

there be a child?

In her past life, she had struggled immensely to conceive James’ child, but in his eyes, no one but Nichole deserved to bear his child.

Sophie was only twenty-seven when she died tragically in childbirth. In her final moments, James had almost wished for her swift death.

Thinking about this, Sophie felt a heavy stone pressing on her heart.

Bea saw Sophie’s troubled face and thought it was because she couldn’t share a room with James. She said compassionately, “Don’t worry, I’ll think of something.”

At that moment, James had just seen Nichole out and entered to find Sophie and Bea talking. “Grandmother, I had the chauffeur get the car ready. You go ahead. I need to speak with Sophie.”

Bea was happy to create an opportunity for the two to be alone.

After Bea left, James spoke coldly, “Sophie, what are you scheming now?”

He thought Sophie had been quiet these past few days, but it seemed she was just trying a new tactic.

Sophie frowned, “I’m not plotting anything.”

“I’ve told you many times that Nichole is just a student I’m helping, who might also assist the the future. She’s no threat to your position as Mrs. Burke. You really shouldn’t plot against her or use my grandmother,”

“James, I told you I’m not plotting anything. Besides, if you hadn’t informed Grandma about my kidnapping, she wouldn’t have come over and wouldn’t have caught Nichole staying at our place.”

James’ gaze narrowed Slightly, “It better be so.”

Sophie saw the distrust in James’ eyes. It didn’t matter. She didn’t expect James to believe her anyway.

Soon, Sophie followed James into the car, and he even made a show of affectionately holding her hand.
