Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 126 – “Don’t do it! Jeremy!” Madeline shouted, but Jeremy ignored her.
She stared as he raised his hand, tossing that important earring right into the lake. Madeline’s heart froze, she had no more cards to play.
However, the heavens really might be helping her. There was a thin layer of ice on the lake, and the earring did not fall in, instead landing on the ice!
Jeremy was obviously very unhappy. He furrowed his eyebrows, trying to think of what to do when Madeline ran across like the wind.
He stared in disbelief as Madeline suddenly ran like crazy toward the lake, just to retrieve that earring.
The thin ice was quite a distance from the shores, and Madeline could not reach it. She tried to find a tree branch to hook the earring over, but she was afraid she would accidentally push the earring into the lake.
Seeing that, Jeremy walked to her side, pulling Madeline up.
“Madeline, what are you doing?”
“Mr. Whitman, can’t you see? I’m trying to retrieve some evidence, evidence that Meredith was the true k****r!”
Jeremy’s face was somber. “What sort of nonsense are you talking about, what does Brittany’s d***h have to do with Mer?”
He protected Meredith as usual, pulling Madeline over. “Come back with me.”
“I won’t!” Madeline pushed him away with all her might, her gaze conflicted. “Jeremy, don’t touch me again! You disgust me!”
“What did you say?” the man’s face darkened again.
Madeline did not falter. “I said you disgust me! You kissed a woman you hate just to protect that vile and despicable Meredith, that sort of behavior disgusts me!”
With those words, Madeline looked at Jeremy’s dark face, his lips pursed tightly and veins could be seen on his forehead.
Nonetheless, Madeline looked at him with a detached gaze. “Jeremy, I’ve thoroughly seen through you. I’ll put my life on the line today. If you want to get your hands on the earring, you’ll have to k**l me!”
With those words, Madeline jumped into the lake without hesitation.
Jeremy’s pupils contracted as he looked at Madeline jumping into the lake. His mental state was in disarray, he suddenly felt a worry that he had never felt before.
The lake was freezing from the winter cold, but she jumped inside!
Madeline finally got her hands on the earring. She was elated but the cold suddenly caused her right leg to cramp up. She wanted to return to shore, but she suddenly could not move, feeling her body getting heavier, she started to sink.
Jeremy immediately noticed something was wrong with Madeline. He did not hesitate to take off his coat and jump into the lake, pulling Madeline up.
“Jeremy, you don’t have to save me! Don’t even think about taking the earring away from me again!” Madeline tried to push him away.
However, Jeremy held onto her arm, making it difficult to get away.
When they got to the shore, Madeline’s leg was still cramped. She thought that Jeremy would take the chance to snatch away the earring again, but he did not.
He had a stony face as he shoved Madeline into the car, quickly bringing her back to her home.
When they got off, Jeremy saw that Madeline’s leg still had not recovered, and wanted to carry her upstairs, but he was pushed away.
She leaned against the wall, forcing her wet body to slowly walk upwards. Jeremy followed behind her, and she could feel his intense gaze following her every move, making her very uncomfortable.
When they almost got to the destination, Madeline suddenly quickened her pace, immediately locking the door behind her when she entered.
