Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1225 – Madeline sat up. She ignored the searing pain on her arm and removed her hand from the man’s grip. “Go now!”
However, after she was finally out of Jeremy’s grip, he pulled her close and held her tightly. “Linnie, don’t chase me away.”
“…” Madeline felt a wave of sadness crashing against her heart. She felt tears falling from her eyes.
Of course, she wanted him to stay with her, but this was not the time to be romantic.
She knew Jeremy would be worried and reluctant to leave, so Madeline softened her voice and patted the man’s shoulder. “Jeremy, listen to me. I’m fine. It’s just a flesh wound. It’ll heal in a few days.”
She comforted, then her voice became firm.
“The most important thing right now is proving your innocence.”
“No, you’re the most important right now.” Jeremy let go of his arms and cupped Madeline’s pale face. “I can’t let my wife get hurt because of me again.”
Madeline felt that Jeremy was feeling sorry for her, but at the same time, she felt sorry for him as well.
“Jeremy, as your wife, I’m happy to bleed and cry for you. Don’t blame yourself.”
She caressed his face and noticed that he looked even worse than before.
“Did you experience another burst of pain at the roof just now? Are you in a lot of pain?”
Jeremy did not plan to hide from her any longer. He nodded. “I’m used to it now.”
Madeline frowned and felt slightly remorseful. “You shouldn’t have thrown away the last three bottles. At least you can use it when you’re suffering.”
Jeremy shook his head and held Madeline’s hand. “I can endure this pain. The pain that I can’t endure is when you’re not with me.”
Madeline felt a tightness in her heart when she heard that.
She understood what Jeremy was saying. However, she still said, “Jeremy, listen to me and go.”
“Go. If not, I’ll ignore you forever.”
Madeline pretended to threaten him angrily. However, Jeremy knew she was just scaring him.
She would not ignore him.
When she saw Jeremy still holding her hand, Madeline retracted her hand abruptly.
However, she exerted too much force and it affected the wound on her arm. She grunted in pain while furrowing her brows.
Jeremy wanted to hold her as he felt his heart shattering into pieces. “Linnie!”
Madeline avoided his hand, her expression becoming stern. “Jeremy Whitman, I asked you to leave.”
She looked at the dispirited man sternly.
“Don’t make me repeat myself so many times. Go immediately. I don’t want to see you in front of me ever again.”
Madeline gritted her pearly whites and said coldly after making up her mind.
“You always said that you won’t make me sad, but now you’re going against my wish like this. Jeremy, I’ll be happy if you leave now. Do you understand?”
Even though he knew she said like that was all for his own good, Madeline’s cold words still felt like glass shards as they penetrated his heart.
He retracted his hand that was suspended in mid-air and pressed his lips together.
Madeline turned her face away to not look at him.
The only thing she wanted right now was for him to leave safely.
Jeremy had to leave when he saw her being so determined.
However, after he turned around, he still turned his head to glance at her reluctantly.
Madeline decided to be cold till the end. She finally let down her facade after she heard Jeremy’s footsteps getting farther and farther away. Then, she looked in the direction where he left.
‘Jeremy, we can’t turn back now.
‘We can only get the anti-toxoid reagent to cure you once and for all after we expose Ryan completely.’
