Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1224 – Jeremy was in the elevator and was coming up to see what was going on. Coincidentally, he saw Ryan carrying Madeline into the elevator.
When the door was about to close, he spotted Madeline’s b****y arm and unconscious pale face.
Jeremy felt his heart leaped into his throat. However, when he was about to chase after them, the police on the roof spotted him.
“It’s Jeremy Whitman!”
“Get him! Shoot if he resists!”
Jeremy only had Madeline in his mind right now, so he could not stay put and let them arrest him.
If he was arrested, he would not be able to check on Madeline and he might get framed by Ryan once again.
He chose to take the stairs. Then, he endured extreme pain and discomfort as he left the building of Whitman Corporation.
He got out from the side door, and when he was about to go to the entrance to see what was going on, he spotted some police standing guard. As such, he could only call a cab by the side of the road and opened an app on his phone.
He knew Madeline always wore the crystal bracelet their son made her and the GPS on the bracelet never failed.
In the end, Jeremy noticed that Madeline was being brought to a hospital nearby. He did not know what was wrong with Madeline, but the sound of the gunshot earlier made Jeremy feel as if his heart had been penetrated by a sword. It was causing him debilitating pain.
Combined with the influence of the poison and the rain, Jeremy felt like he could not hold on anymore.
However, when he saw the ring on his ring finger, he was fueled with power once more.
After Madeline was treated, she was sent to the ward. Luckily, the bullet only grazed her arm and she was already awake now.
However, she had lost too much blood recently and it caused her to be lethargic. She could not exert any force even if she wanted to.
Ryan stood by the side of her bed, looking at Madeline who had an icy expression on her face.
“A tough woman will only elicit feelings of possessiveness of a man. Eveline, I advise you to stop being so stubborn. If not, you’ll be the one who’s going to get hurt.”
His words sounded like a reminder, but at the same time, it sounded like a warning and a threat.
Madeline lifted her head calmly. Even though she was in a horrible condition, one could still see the sharp glint in her eyes.
“I wouldn’t have come looking for you if I was scared of getting hurt, Ryan. I’m a presumptuous woman who’s not afraid to go anything. I’ll do anything to get what I want.”
“Anything, huh?” Ryan snorted. “Your goal is to get the anti-toxoid test reagent and absolve Jeremy of the crime, no? You love him so much.”
“I’m not trying to absolve him from the crime because he’s innocent, after all. Lana’s d***h has nothing to do with him.”
“If it has nothing to do with him, then who’s the one who has something to do with it?” Ryan was trying to probe Madeline by saying that.
Madeline looked into his ominous eyes and pretended to avert her eyes in sadness. “I don’t know, but I know he must be someone special because a normal person wouldn’t have a gun.”
Ryan let out a sigh of relief when he heard that. “Rest well. I’ll come to see you first thing in the morning.”
He did not say anything more before leaving the room.
Madeline looked coldly at Ryan’s back, caressing the ring on her ring finger gently.
‘Jeremy, I’m one step closer to my plan.
‘I will expose Ryan and prove your innocence.’
As she thought about it, she let out a sigh of relief. Suddenly, she saw the door opening as a doctor in a white coat entered the room.
Madeline turned her face in exhaustion and said flatly, “Doctor, I’m fine. You don’t have to check on me. I just want to sleep now.”
However, after she said that, the doctor on the side of the bed held her hand all of a sudden.
Madeline wanted to get her hand away from his grip reflexively, but she felt a warmth that she was longing for.
She felt her heart skip a beat as she turned around in disbelief. When she looked into the man’s gentle gaze, she was worried and anxious. “I told you to leave. Why did you come back?”
