Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1155 – Madeline had changed her mind at the last minute and did not go to the lab, so the chemist typed the results into a comprehensible report instead and sent it over to her in the form of an email.
Yet with Jeremy by her side, she did not dare open it in front of him.
If he did not want her to know that he had not fully recovered, then she would not cut through his facade.
“Didn’t I tell you to wait for me at home, Linnie? Why did you follow me out?” Jeremy’s curious and soft tone drifted over.
Madeline kept her phone and looked up to meet the man’s heartbreaking gaze. “Didn’t we agree to face everything together in the future? I won’t let you stand in the spotlight by yourself for everyone to scrutinize.”
Jeremy gave an understanding smile and caressed the top of Madeline’s head. “Linnie.”
“Did you have the IBCI send out the official statement?” It was Madeline’s turn to ask questions.
Jeremy nodded. “I told you I’d deal with this. I won’t let anyone slander you.”
At that moment, Madeline felt the true meaning of being protected and kept safe.
True protection was when the heart itself felt safe.
On Ryan’s end, the man was re-reading the IBCI’s official statement.
His elegant features grew cold as he rifled through his contacts for a number. He soon found the one he was looking for and dialed it.
“What’s with the official report online?” he questioned his subordinate.
The same man who caught Lana with Jeremy replied truthfully, “It was an order from the higher-ups. I only just saw it too.”
“Higher-ups?” Ryan frowned. “Since when did Jeremy go to IBCI’s headquarters? Who did he meet there?”
The person responded in confusion, “I have no idea as well. All I know is that someone gave Jeremy a trial fix for his slow-acting poison, so he’s not in any life-threatening danger right now. I’d say it’s quite the good news.”
Ryan scoffed and hung up the phone.
Jeremy evidently knew something about Ryan he should not, and with every other day that man was alive, the greater a threat he would pose.
As far as Ryan was concerned, it was a bad thing.
Ryan decided to rethink the plan to control Jeremy when Mrs. Jones suddenly opened his room door and entered with a huff as she pointed at her phone. “What’s this, Rye? Why are you suddenly a member of this international criminal investigation organization?
“It says here that you and Eveline are only married because it was a mission from your superiors and you’re husband and wife only in name. Is that true?”
Ryan’s expression fell as he replaced it with a look of frustration. “I’m indeed a member of the IBCI, but my marriage with Eveline is real.”
“But the official statement says—”
“That’s to save Jeremy’s dignity as a member of the IBCI, or they wouldn’t need to post such a twisted statement.”
“What? So they’ll make you the bad guy just to save Jeremy’s dignity?” Mrs. Jones was infuriated.
Ryan sighed hopelessly. “This isn’t something you and Dad should trouble yourselves with. I’ll deal with this myself.”
“Are you still not going to divorce Eveline? She already told the public that Jeremy is her husband. You don’t even matter to her at all.”
The words were sharp against Ryan’s ears, but he replied gently, “I won’t divorce Eveline. I’ll make her realize my worth someday.”
His tone was confident, for he had the ultimate bargaining chip.
Madeline followed Jeremy to his office, now walking boldly by his side without needing to hide in the shadows anymore.
