Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1355 – Jeremy instantly felt Madeline awakening.
However, when he lowered his head, he saw that Madeline’s eyes were full of panic and confusion.
She looked at the ceiling somewhat blanky, and after a few seconds, Madeline seemed to realize that there was someone next to her.
When she saw Jeremy who was extremely close to her, she grabbed the blanket and leaped away immediately. “Get away from me!”
Jeremy’s heart sank. At that moment, he felt as if he had fallen into the bottom of a cold lake.
Sure enough, what he was worried about had happened.
“Linnie, I’m Jeremy,” Jeremy explained.
However, Madeline seemed to be ignoring him. She shrank to the corner of the bed with a panicked expression. Her big, smart, and beautiful eyes were looking ahead in confusion. They were out of focus.
“Linnie, what’s wrong with you, Linnie? I’m Jeremy. Don’t be afraid.” Jeremy slowly approached while coaxing patiently and tenderly. “Don’t be afraid, Linnie. It’s over. Ryan won’t have any more opportunities to control and hurt you.”
Madeline seemed to be reacting to this name. She looked forward blankly and muttered to herself like a child.
“Ryan said he would take me to find Jeremy. He also said that as long as I’m obedient, he’ll let my parents go and personally send me back to Jeremy. However, Jeremy came to me and I wanted to go with Jeremy, but he wouldn’t let me go. And then…”
As Madeline was talking, her face turned paler. In her head, there was a scene of Ryan getting shot and falling to the ground in front of her.
The blood that came out from Ryan’s wound seemed to be burning hot on her cheeks.
She really did not want to think about it anymore, but she just could not get rid of that scene in her mind.
Madeline suddenly raised her hand and held her head in pain.
“Linnie!” Jeremy hurried forward and held Madeline who was in pain. “Don’t be afraid, Linnie. Don’t be afraid.”
“He’s d**d! Ryan is d**d! D**d!” Madeline repeated incoherently in Jeremy’s arms. Her eyes turned red unknowingly while tears filled her eyes.
She did not forget those words Ryan said to her in the last second before he lost consciousness.
Ryan had only whispered weakly, but those three words lingered clearly in Madeline’s mind.
At that moment, she saw the sincerity and regret on Ryan’s face.
Ryan’s most unforgettable regret was driving her to the brink of insanity.
He knew that he was not qualified to be forgiven by Madeline, but at least, he wanted her to know that he did not actually want to push her to such a point.
He just hoped that she could stay by his side with a little more docility.
However, it turned out that she would still love the man named Jeremy even if it meant going completely crazy.
He really could not force one’s feelings.
It was a pity that he only understood this at the end.
Jeremy hugged Madeline who was out of control as he patiently and gently comforted her.
Madeline’s mood eased a little, but she was still restless and tense. Her entire body was even trembling slightly.
However, she finally stopped resisting him and Jeremy felt a little joyous.
Time slipped away silently as Jeremy sat on the bed holding Madeline for a long time. She was nestled in his arms where she gradually stopped trembling and feeling afraid.
Jeremy stroked Madeline’s head lightly. “Linnie, go to sleep if you’re tired. I’ll always be with you.”
After he said that, Jeremy felt Madeline’s hands tightening his collar.
