Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1197 – “Jeremy, don’t leave me.” Still in her drunken stupor, Madeline’s eyes were half-open and full of reluctance.
Jeremy held her hand. Madeline’s small pink face was reflected in his amber pupils.
He promised softly, “I’m not going to leave you.”
“You are.” Madeline’s eyes were hot. “You’ll leave me. You will…”
Jeremy was taken aback for a moment and suddenly did not know how he should respond.
Yes, it was true. He was going to leave her. At most, he had two years to stay with her and the children.
“Linnie.” Jeremy’s heart tightened.
Madeline’s eyes turned red as she suddenly wrapped her arms around his neck tightly. “Don’t go. I don’t want to experience the feeling of losing you again.”
Jeremy gulped as an unignorable pain surged in his heart.
He stroked Madeline’s head to comfort her.
He then heard Madeline’s crying sobs. “During your absence for half a year, I thought you had left me forever. Every night after the kids were asleep, I’d just lay alone in bed in a daze. I didn’t know how I should live the rest of my life.
“Why did Cupid make two people who could not be together fall in love? Why…” Madeline muttered to herself as she hugged him in distress. Her voice was ridden with guilt. “Jeremy, don’t be angry with me. I didn’t mean to lie to you. I’m sorry…”
When Jeremy heard her apology to him, he felt worse.
Why did he have to get angry at her?
If he knew she had a reason, why did he have to make it hard for her?
Although Madeline was drunk and her mind was all over the place, she still knew very well that she had made Jeremy angry.
When Madeline saw that he was still not saying anything to her, she felt worse. She held his cheeks and met his deep-set eyes with a sullen gaze.
When she thought about Ryan’s exchange terms, she recalled the terrible poison that Adam created. She thought about not being able to save the guy in front of her and her tears started rolling down uncontrollably.
On the outside, she was strong, sharp, and never showed weakness when she met with trouble. However, when she was faced with the man she loved, she did not want to pretend to be strong anymore.
“Jeremy, I’m sorry.”
‘I shouldn’t have angered Ryan and put your health at risk.’
Madeline blamed herself. “I’m sorry. I’m so—”
Jeremy did not want to let Madeline continue apologizing, so he sealed her lips with his.
Time seemed to stand still in that second. Madeline blinked and gradually became sober.
Jeremy let go of her lips and stroked her flushed cheeks with regret. “I’m sorry, Linnie. I’m not angry with you. Even if you have to lie to me, I don’t mind.”
His low voice slipped gently into her ears.
Madeline’s eyes became redder. “Are you really not angry with me?”
“Of course, I’m not angry at you.” He held her hand affectionately. “Because I love you.”
When Madeline heard him confessing to her, she could not help but cry like a child.
Jeremy lowered his head and kissed away the teardrops on the corners of her eyes. His lips finally landed on hers.
Madeline closed her eyes and responded jerkily but also instinctively to his k**s.
Jeremy’s warm fingertips brushed across her skin lightly, making Madeline feel as if a stream of clear spring was falling onto her hot heart. The sweet and refreshing feeling gradually made her relax.
The moonlight deepened outside the window and the summer evening breeze blew past the c******s by the French windows, but it did not blow away the warmth in the room.
“I love you too.” Madeline poured her heart out.
Jeremy chuckled softly and responded with two words, “I know.”
Yeah, he knew.
He always knew how much she loved him.
Whether it was before or in the future, he knew that his name would be engraved on her heart for life—even if he died.
