Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1319 – However, when Madeline was hugged by Jeremy, she reacted fiercely and pushed him away. She hurriedly retracted her legs back to the bed and pulled up the blanket to wrap it around herself.
Madeline’s eyes were full of trepidation as she held her arms tightly, muttering to herself, “Don’t come here. I’ll do everything you say, I’ll listen to you. Don’t force me…”
Jeremy stared at Madeline with a frightened expression. As he listened to what she was saying at the moment, he gradually understood why Madeline was having such a reaction.
It was because Ryan had tortured her so much that she became like this.
Jeremy clenched his fists. A storm raged in his deep eyes. Soon, the darkness and coldness in his eyes dissipated for Madeline’s sake, leaving only gentleness and warmth that were like the spring breeze.
“Linnie,” Jeremy gently called out to Madeline before raising his palm to caress her head, but Madeline shrank her neck and was obviously avoiding his touch.
“Linnie, I’m Jeremy. Look at me, I’m your Jeremy.” Jeremy patiently and tenderly coaxed her while slowly bringing his face closer to hers.
Madeline lifted her blank and dispirited charming eyes to look at Jeremy seriously.
Jeremy nodded with a warm smile. “Linnie, it’s me.”
After Jeremy answered her affirmatively, Madeline furrowed her eyebrows. She looked at Jeremy for a while but later shook her head.
“You’re lying. Jeremy hasn’t come yet. He told me he’ll come for me and I’m waiting for him,” Madeline spoke seriously and looked away from Jeremy’s face.
Jeremy felt as if a bucket of cold water was poured into his heart. He looked at Madeline who was silently ignoring him and left the room while feeling choked.
He took out the card that Adam put in his pocket and immediately called him. “Can you come over now? Eveline is up, but she’s behaving strangely.”
Adam seemed to have expected Jeremy to call him. “I’ll be there soon.”
“Are you almost here? How do you know where I live?”
“Ryan has a clear grasp of your movements in Y Country.” As soon as Adam finished saying this, Jeremy heard the doorbell of the apartment ringing. “I’m here. Open the door.”
Jeremy did not expect Adam to arrive so fast. Jeremy tossed the phone away and walked over to open the door.
Adam had changed into casual clothes, but the only thing constant with him was that he was still wearing those glasses. Plus, he looked calmer on top of his gentle image now.
“Is she in the room?” Adam asked.
Jeremy led the way forward while his eyebrows furrowed more and more. “I don’t know if it’s an illusion, but she doesn’t seem to recognize me anymore.”
“When I brought her out of Ryan’s villa, I also found something amiss with her, but I didn’t expect that she would not recognize you as well.” Adam followed Jeremy into the room.
Adam held his glasses thoughtfully when he saw Madeline holding the blanket on the bed.
“You should go and talk to her. I want to observe her reaction.”
Jeremy nodded. Then, he sat down by the bed and carefully raised his palm before putting it on her head. “Linnie.”
Madeline abruptly avoided him and even glanced at Jeremy in annoyance. “Don’t disturb me while I wait for him. Go away.”
“Linnie, I’m the one you’re waiting for,” Jeremy explained patiently in a soft voice.
Madeline looked at him fixedly. “No, you’re not.”
“Don’t call me Linnie. Only Jeremy can call me that.” Madeline corrected, but her tone was not as aggressive as before.
Jeremy’s eyes became more desolate when he was faced with Madeline’s avoidance.
He and Adam looked at each other. Then, Adam nodded before turning around and walking outside.
Jeremy tentatively pulled Madeline’s blanket for her as he was scared of being disliked by her.
Seeing that Madeline did not dislike him as much as just now, his heart started to feel more at ease.
