Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1274 – “Eveline?” Eloise snapped out of it and widened her big, pretty eyes. She examined Madeline with a critical gaze. Then, she shook her head. “This is not Eveline, no.”
Madeline felt something within her breaking into pieces when she heard Eloise denying her.
She looked over at Eloise, who was behind Sean, with a cautious gaze as tears started flowing.
Madeline composed herself and said to Sean, “Why is she this way? Why can’t she recognize me? Dad, what’s going on?”
Sean let out a long sigh and said while feeling heartbroken, “It’s all because of Lana.”
Sean nodded, his eyes gleaming with a deep hatred for Lana.
“Because of her, our courtyard was b****d into ashes. Your mom thought that you were in trouble when the fire happened. Ever since then, she keeps saying she wants to look for you. Day in day out, she would keep muttering your name hundreds of times, or even thousands of times…”
At that point, Sean choked. He grasped Eloise’s hand. His eyes were still brewing with the indescribable hurt and care he had for Eloise.
“Soon after, your mom became like this because she desperately misses you. Now, she can’t recognize anybody but me. Not just that, but her intelligence has declined as well. Occasionally, she can’t carry out even the most basic day-to-day tasks.”
Madeline felt her heart being pierced by a sharp blade after listening to Sean’s explanation. The hurtful feeling seeped deep into her bone marrow.
“Let’s not bother about her, Sean. Let’s go look for Eveline!” Eloise looked at Madeline calmly. She grabbed Sean’s hand tightly, her expression suddenly becoming anxious and worried. “Sean, do you think perhaps Eveline isn’t willing to forgive us? Is that why that kid went into hiding and doesn’t want to meet us?”
As Eloise spoke, she started blaming herself. “It’s all my fault, it’s my fault. I didn’t recognize Eveline and mistook that bad lady as my daughter instead. I’ve let Eveline down and allowed her to endure lots of suffering. I’m not a good mother. Eveline will never forgive me. She’ll never…”
Madeline continued crying when she heard Eloise’s muttering that was full of self-blame.
She walked to the front of Eloise and grabbed her hand. “Mom, Eveline has stopped being angry with you for a long time now. Stop blaming yourself. Eveline’s back now and will never be apart from you again, okay?”
Eloise frowned and stared at Madeline, looking absent-minded.
After some time, she once again freed her hands from Madeline’s grip and ran to Sean’s side. “This lady is very weird. She keeps saying she’s Eveline.”
Eloise kept shaking her head when she looked at Madeline. “No, this isn’t Eveline. You’d better stop lying to me. Eveline wouldn’t bother about me anymore.”
Madeline was hurt when she heard it.
Sean was also feeling helpless. He comforted Madeline when he saw her being so sad. “Eveline, your mom is sick. She doesn’t mean it. Don’t take those words to heart.”
Madeline shook her head gently. Of course, she had no intention to blame Eloise. She was just upset and felt sorry for her mother.
“Eloise, we have a guest here. Didn’t you already prepare some snacks? If they’re ready, then take them out for our guest to try.” Sean tapped on Elosie’s hand gently and reminded. As if he was reassuring a little kid, he was patient in guiding Eloise to carry out her daily activities.
Eloise’s expression suddenly changed as she put on a smile on her face. She glanced at Madeline and smiled. “Please wait for a moment. I’ll go get you some snacks to eat.”
Madeline nodded, feeling her insides writhing with sorrow. “Alright, I’ll wait for you “
“Mmm,” Eloise answered with satisfaction. She then spun around and left for the kitchen.
Sean went over and held Madeline’s hand. “Eveline, come sit beside me.”
Madeline went ahead and sat down. “Dad, do you still remember about the fire that broke out at our house that day? Why are you and Mom suddenly in Y Country now?”
