Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1421 – Jeremy had not expected Linnie to walk over as well and he secretly glanced at the situation through the peephole from the corner of his eye before replying plainly, “I’m not. I was just about to open the door.”
He smiled softly before opening the door.
When the door was opened, Madeline was met with an alluring young lady standing right outside their room.
The lights may have been dim last night, but Madeline would remember such ethereal features.
Shirley watched Madeline give herself a good look and was reminded of how Madeline found out about her late-night talk with Jeremy. She smiled unconcernedly and was about to speak when Madeline suddenly walked up to her with a friendly smile.
“Hello. I’m Eveline, Jeremy’s wife. Jeremy already told me about how you helped him when he wasn’t doing well during that half a year. Thank you for letting my husband come back to me.”
“…” A confused look flashed through Shirley’s eyes.
She suspected if Madeline was mocking her, but the other’s smile was sincere.
“What’s your name?”
“Shirley,” the woman spoke as she gave a generous smile. “You’re too kind, Mrs. Whitman. I’m just a doctor. It’s my duty to help the injured. I’m glad as well to see that my patient’s situation is taking a turn for the better.”
She looked at Jeremy who remained silent as she spoke. “I’m glad I got to meet you here, Jeremy. I just came to say goodbye before I got ready to leave. Perhaps our paths will cross again in Glendale.”
A cold glint flashed through Jeremy’s eyes at her suggestion.
“Are you from Glendale as well, Miss Shirley?” Madeline was surprised.
Shirley nodded. “I am. My parents passed long ago, but I still have family there.”
She then chuckled bitterly and disappointedly. “I don’t have many friends outside of work, Mrs. Whitman. I’m wondering if you’d like to be my friend?”
Jeremy wanted to decline her offer, but he heard Madeline agree.
“Of course. I’d love to be your friend. You’ve helped Jeremy so much.”
“That’s great, then.” The woman’s expression was filled with glee. “If you’ll excuse me, Mrs. Whitman, Jeremy, I won’t bother you two anymore then. I wish you a nice vacation here.”
“Thank you. Goodbye.” Madeline bade and waved the woman farewell.
“Bye,” Jeremy spoke sharply and turned to take Madeline’s hand to close the door without even waiting for the woman to turn around.
Hearing the door close, the woman paused her footsteps and turned to glance back.
She could not help but doubt Madeline’s reaction. ‘Didn’t she see everything last night? So why is she acting like she doesn’t know anything?’
Despite being baffled, she did not think deeper into it. For the rejection she had caught in Jeremy’s eyes was enough of a reward.
In the suite.
Madeline began to pack their luggage after breakfast for today was their last day here.
She turned around to see the man dazed. Madeline was both curious and concerned. “What are you thinking about, Jeremy? Are you feeling unwell?”
Jeremy quickly snapped out of his thoughts and smiled as he walked toward Madeline. “I’m alright. I was just thinking about how I can conclude the rest of our trip more happily and perfectly.”
“As long as it’s with you, I’m happy with wherever and whatever.” Madeline gave the man a crescent-eyed smile as she took his hand. “Let’s go. To where we planned today.”
“I’m so glad I have you, Linnie.” Jeremy’s eyes were gentle, and he could not help but hug Madeline and k**s her. Holding hands, they left the room and took the elevator down.
Passing through the lobby, the receptionist called Madeline and Jeremy back.
“Are you Mr. and Mrs. Whitman from room 1818?”
Madeline and Jeremy stopped walking and looked over as a server approached Madeline with a prettily wrapped box.
“A woman told us to hand this gift to you, Mrs. Whitman.”
