Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1021 – Everyone in the banquet hall turned to look at Madeline.
Suspicious and doubtful gazes roamed over her.
“She was the one who stole the money?”
“No wonder her worker came to stop her from calling the police. They were all in on it.”
“I can’t say that I’m surprised, but I never expected this from Mr. Montgomery’s daughter, of all people. What a disgrace. How is he and Mrs. Montgomery supposed to rest in peace?”
Hearing such disdainful comments, Madeline felt fury rise within her. Yet, she forced herself to keep her cool.
However, she could no longer stand hearing people involve Sean and Eloise’s names.
“30 million is nothing to me. Do tell why I would risk my reputation for such a small amount?” Madeline asked back, turning to that person in charge. “Nothing happened to my personal account, so there’s no way 30 million could’ve been transferred from the company’s account.”
“Are you still going to deny it, Ms. Montgomery?” she sneered at Madeline, “It’s not my first time here. I have eyes, and my eyes told me that the transfer details of the 30 million was to your personal account! Doesn’t your conscience hurt when you spend that kind of money?”
“Exactly! How could you do such a thing? You’d k**l Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery with your insolence if they were still alive!”
Madeline balled her fists, not wanting to hear them use her parents’ names to taunt her.
She tried her best to control her emotions and calm herself down. Looking up, her eyes fell on Jeremy who was standing not too far away as he watched indifferently at everyone throwing their accusations at her.
Standing beside him was a mirthful Lana Johnson. Jeremy merely watched the scene play out.
Madeline felt her heart chill when she suddenly heard Ryan standing up for her. “Miss Montgomery would never do such a thing. I hope all of you can give her some time to investigate the matter at hand.”
“Who are you to guarantee that, Mr. Jones? From what perspective do you stand, and who are you to her?” someone asked in dissatisfaction.
“To be honest, I don’t think Eveline Montgomery ever had the right to sit on that spot at all. She has no experience and no qualifications at all. She’s only there because she’s her parents’ daughter.”
The leaders who were dissatisfied with Madeline’s position in the company began to rub salt in her wounds.
Madeline merely smiled and fired back without restraint. “You’re right. I don’t have the experience nor do I have the qualifications. However, the reason that I stand here today is more than just because I’m my parents’ daughter. If you think you’re so great, then I wish that you’ll reincarnate into a better family in your next life. You’re not getting paid for being judgemental here.”
“What… Eveline Montgomery, how could you say such a thing?”
“I think it’s best you distance yourself from the matter, Mr. Jones, lest you find yourself with a handful of c**p!”
Madeline knew that they were picking on her, and she did not want to drag Ryan into this.
However, Ryan stepped up and took Madeline’s hand in his before giving the guests a sincere and humble smile. “I’m here today as Eveline’s boyfriend, and I can promise you that my girlfriend would never do such a thing.”
He replied and turned to look gently at Madeline who was at loss.
“I know that someone is framing you, Eveline. You’d never do something so immoral.”
“Ahaha! Has this woman ever done anything that wasn’t immoral?” Mocking laughter sounded from the banquet hall’s entrance.
Naomi rushed into the room and huffed. “This two-faced woman is the reason why you deserted me, isn’t she, Ryan?”
Her use of the word ‘deserted’ garnered the pity of many.
“You’ve already been caught hugging and being close with Ryan by the media, Eveline! Are you still going to deny it? Are you still going to argue and say that you didn’t?”
