Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1426 – She touched his arm with eyes full of worry as the man’s body temperature had not increased at all.
“His body temperature is low because he’s soaking in ice.” Shirley’s voice sounded from behind.
Madeline turned her head and saw Shirley slowly walking over with a syringe in her hand.
“Could you wait outside, Mrs. Whitman? I don’t really like having someone watching over my shoulder when I’m treating my patients.”
Madeline understood and got up, only to have Jeremy hold her hand.
“Don’t go, Linnie.”
“Be good, Jeremy. Let Shirley give you that injection and you’ll be alright, okay?” Madeline hushed Jeremy as if he was a child before she let go of her hand.
“Thank you, Shirley.”
“You’re welcome. It’s my pleasure to help those in need.” Shirley gave a small smile.
Madeline did not think too much of it and went out.
She gave Jeremy one last glance before she closed the door. She saw that the man’s half-squinted peach blossom eyes were tinted red.
He was looking at her delicately.
Madeline suddenly had the urge to return to Jeremy’s side, but Shirley suddenly turned to look at her as if checking if Madeline had left the bathroom or not.
It was then that Madeline took in Shirley’s figure. Her damp curls had been pulled into a low ponytail while her drenched dress stuck to her flesh and accentuated her curves.
Madeline closed the glass door and could not help but feel uneasy.
Jeremy was soaking topless in the bathtub while Shirley looked like that…
‘No, no, no.
‘Don’t take this the wrong way, Eveline Montgomery.
‘She’s saving your husband’s life.
‘She’s a doctor.
‘She even gave you a meeting gift. She wants to be your friend.’
Madeline continued to persuade herself while she paced outside the bathroom and waited…
In the bathroom.
Shirley walked toward the bathtub with the syringe in hand.
Jeremy did not even glance at her. Ignoring the searing pain that his body was suffering from, he took a towel from the rack and covered it over himself.
“Get out.” He shooed her away coldly. He would much rather soak in this bone-prickling cold than come in contact with this woman again.
“I’m here to help you, Jeremy. You don’t want your wife to worry, right?” Shirley brought up Madeline again. “She’s right outside waiting for news of your recovery. She’s going to suffer more than you if your pain won’t subside.”
She squatted down and reached out to Jeremy with the syringe.
Frost glinted sharply in Jeremy’s eyes. “Don’t touch me.”
Shirley ignored him and continued to lean over as she spoke amorously, “It’s not like this is the first time I’m touching you, Jeremy. What do you think will happen if your wife knows of what happened between us during that half a year…”
Shirley was interrupted by Jeremy whose hand suddenly wrapped around her throat.
“I don’t need you to remind me of what happened, but if you dare to continue disturbing Linnie while thinking that I’ll go easy on you because of that slightest bit of gratitude I have for you, then you can dream on!” Jeremy warned coldly before he pushed Shirley away unfeelingly.
“Cough, cough.” Shirley coughed twice and squinted her almond eyes.
Staring at Jeremy who oozed with frost, Shirley leaned forward undeterred and stabbed the needle into his arm before he realized.
Madeline was waiting outside the bathroom door when she suddenly heard a c***h as if something had fallen.
It was followed by Shirley’s frantic voice. “Calm down, Jeremy!”
