Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 13 – The woman’s shrill accusations attracted a lot of people’s stares. Nevertheless, Madeline tried to remain polite. “Madam, you’re the one who bumped into me just now. Plus, I’m not the Whitmans’ maid.”
The woman was stunned. Then, she looked at Madeline’s outfit. A smile of disdain appeared on her elegant face. “You don’t look like a maid at all. You look more like a beggar from the streets.”
Subsequently, sniggers were heard from one side. Nevertheless, Madeline did not want to argue with her anymore. However, just as she was about to leave, she saw Meredith walking over.
She was dressed to the nines and had nice makeup on her face. When she saw Madeline, she displayed a shocked expression. “Oh, it’s you, Maddie.”
When the woman heard what Meredith had said, she looked at Madeline in contempt. “Mrs. Whitman, you know this stupid beggar?”
Madeline was stunned. This woman thought Meredith was Jeremy’s wife. However, it was obvious that Meredith was not going to correct her. On the contrary, she gave the woman a smile.
“Mrs. Langford, please just let this go for my sake.”
“Since Mrs. Whitman has said the word, I’ll just let it go.” The woman looked at Madeline in agitation. “Watch where you’re going next time!”
Madeline was about to tell her who she was, but Meredith stopped her and grabbed her arm with a concerned expression on her face. “Maddie, are you okay? Are you hurt?”
Madeline looked at her pretentious face and felt disgusted. Nonetheless, as she was about to walk away, someone grabbed her arm.
“Don’t go yet!” It was that woman from just now, and she was furious. “No wonder you ran into me on purpose. You wanted to steal my bracelet!”
How weird. Madeline felt that it was preposterous. On the other hand, Meredith quickly ran over to explain on her behalf, “Mrs. Langford, this has to be a mistake. Maddie once had the habit of pocketing things that did not belong to her, but she has changed now.”
It did not sound like an explanation at all. Instead, it sounded like proof that Madeline was indeed a thief.
The accusations became louder and louder around them. Madeline was worried that it would ruin the Whitmans’ reputation, so she explained, “I’ve never stolen anything!”
“If it wasn’t you, then who was it?” The woman was sure that it was Madeline. “My bracelet must be on you right now! Do you dare let me search you?”
Madeline knew that she was innocent, so it was fine if she wanted to search her. However, at this moment, Meredith quickly walked over and touched Madeline’s pocket. “Mrs. Langford, I think this is just a misunderstanding. Maddie has changed. She wouldn’t steal again…”
Before she finished saying that, her expression changed.
Then, she looked at Madeline in disappointment before taking out an expensive bracelet from Madeline’s front pocket.
“Maddie, I didn’t think you’d do this.”
Madeline was shocked. She had not taken anything from anyone, but they had found that bracelet in her pocket.
“You’re indeed the one who stole my bracelet, you beggar!” The woman took out her phone to call the cops.
Madeline started to feel anxious. Today was Jeremy’s mother’s 50th birthday party. If her daughter-in-law was sent to the police based on accusations that she was a thief, it would affect the reputation of the Whitmans greatly. It was fine that she be falsely accused, but the Whitmans’ reputation was more important.
More and more guests gathered around them. At this moment, Meredith looked extremely disappointed. “Maddie, I know that ever since you were a kid, you never saw anything good. That’s why you have the habit of pocketing things. However, how could you do it at a time like this?”
Madeline explained again, but no one believed her.
She suddenly remembered that Meredith had deliberately tried to get close to her just now and immediately came to a realization.
Meredith was the one that had planted the bracelet on her!
At the same time, the woman had already called the cops. After a while, the cops arrived. They were going to take Madeline to make a statement at the station.
