Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1420 – She swirled the liquid in her glass and scoffed indignantly.
“There’s no way I’ll lose to you, Adam. Did you think you’d really be able to save Jeremy? Hmph. There’s no way I’ll let you stick your hand in my experiment subject!”
Jeremy ran from the terrace all the way back to the hotel’s entrance but he suddenly lost sight of Madeline.
He was worried that Madeline would get the wrong idea after what she heard from their conversation. Not to mention that it was midnight and Madeline was in a strange setting. Jeremy was scared that Madeline would get lost.
He quickly returned to the suite. Seeing the empty bed, Jeremy felt his heart sink deeper.
He took out his phone to search for Madeline’s location. Just as he was about to walk to the entrance, he heard the sound of water running coming from the bathroom.
Jeremy’s footsteps came to a sudden halt as he looked up to see Madeline squinting blearily while walking out of the bathroom.
Dressed in a loose sleeping gown, it did not look like she had left the room at all.
“Where did you go, Jeremy? I thought you went to the bathroom,” Madeline mumbled as she walked toward the man drowsily. She then leaned into his chest adorably.
Jeremy quickly raised his hands to hug Madeline back as his heart thumped erratically.
“I was a little hungry so I went to eat something at the restaurant.” Jeremy could not help but lie.
Madeline did not suspect him and buried her head into Jeremy’s broad chest intimately as she spoke coquettishly, “Are you done eating, then? Come back to bed with me. I’m sleepy.”
“Alright. I’ll come with you.” Jeremy then bridal-carried Madeline to the bed. Taking off his jacket, he got in bed as well.
Just as he lay down, Madeline burrowed into his arms. “Goodnight, sweetheart.”
Jeremy’s heart felt sweet but it was even more so remorseful. He placed a peck on the space between her brows and whispered, “Goodnight, Linnie.”
Madeline smiled sweetly and contently before she fell comfortably asleep in Jeremy’s warm embrace.
Jeremy did not think too much either. Tightening his arms around her, he held his beloved to sleep…
Madeline woke naturally from her dreams and saw Jeremy still asleep. She pecked his cheek before she got up to get ready. She called for breakfast.
By the time Jeremy woke, the server had arrived with their breakfast.
With the cooling breeze, Madeline and Jeremy enjoyed their breakfast lazily on the open balcony in their suite.
Madeline placed the bacon from her plate onto Jeremy’s. “Eat more, or you’ll get hungry again later.”
Jeremy paused in memory of what happened yesterday and reined his thoughts back before smiling. “I have enough to eat, Linnie. You should eat more though, you’re too skinny.”
He brought the bacon right to Madeline’s mouth to feed her.
Madeline did not turn away and ate what he fed in courteousness.
She gave a crescent-eyed smile, having never thought that a honeymoon could be so sweet.
“Let’s go to Adam’s first when we get back, Jeremy. I want to have him do a full-body check-up on you so we can have an update about the poison in your body. I don’t want anything to happen to you if it suddenly relapses.”
“Don’t worry. I know my body, I’ll be fine,” he promised.
Just then, the doorbell rang.
“Did you call for more room service?” Jeremy asked.
Madeline shook her head. “I only ordered breakfast.”
Jeremy nodded and went toward the door. He had a bad feeling just before he got to the door, so he made sure to peep outside first through the hole in the door.
His hand froze on the doorknob mid-turn the moment he saw the person standing outside.
“Who’s outside, Jeremy? Why are you daydreaming by the door?”
