Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1551 – Jeremy looked into Madeline’s curious gaze with a smile in his eyes. “Miss Quinn, what do you think is the most important thing in a relationship or a marriage?”
It was this question. Madeline was a little dazed, but she was not absent-minded for long.
“I think it should be honesty and loyalty. Why are you asking this, Mr. Whitman?”
“If that’s the case, do you think I’m considered loyal to my marriage, Miss Quinn?” Jeremy asked following that.
Madeline was stumped for words once again. Immediately, she recalled what happened between her and Jeremy in the study a few days ago and also how he had brazenly hinted at her to be his personal secretary.
Was that loyalty?
He said he wanted to get close to her because of a feeling.
In addition, this feeling stemmed from the fact that she was Eveline.
As such, mentally, he had not let her down. Meanwhile, physically… It seemed that he had not let her down from that perspective as well.
Suddenly, Madeline felt like she was getting dizzy from her own logic.
Jeremy curled the corners of his lips into a smirk when he saw Madeline spacing out and staying silent.
“Why are you not talking, Miss Quinn?”
“Did you miss me the two days I was on a business trip, Miss Quinn?”
“…” Madeline could sense that something was amiss when Jeremy said such things to her.
However, she could not help but feel the heat rising to her cheeks. In order to prevent the man from saying something weird again, she pretended to sneeze. After all, it was cold from the chilly wind.
Jeremy frowned and walked to Madeline.
He grabbed her shoulder when Madeline was least expecting it and pulled her into his broad warm embrace. He did not let a single raindrop fall on her.
However, Madeline was stunned. They were in the courtyard of Whitman Manor.
Was he seriously holding her so brazenly?
Was he seriously going to hug a maid who was working for his family?
Madeline was feeling more and more conflicted. She escaped from Jeremy’s embrace.
“Mr. Whitman, did you have too much to drink? You’re being disrespectful toward Mrs. Whitman by doing this.”
Madeline could not help but roast Jeremy unhappily. Suddenly, she lifted her legs and ran into the rain, going into the house.
Jeremy frowned when he saw Madeline suddenly running into the rain.
He followed after her closely and grumbled about his inappropriate behavior just now in his heart.
He had to bear the blame if she got a cold because of this.
After Madeline ran back into the house, her body was soaked and even the mask on her face was half-drenched.
It was still early, but there was no one in the living room.
She knew that the children needed to go to school and Karen was usually the one taking care of her youngest son. However, Karen and Eloise were not here now.
She looked upstairs subconsciously, and it seemed that Naomi was not here as well.
This large house was extremely quiet and everything seemed peaceful.
When Madeline was pondering about what was going on, she heard Jeremy’s warm words behind her.
“Go back to your room to take a hot shower and change your clothes. Don’t catch a cold.”
Madeline looked at Jeremy from the corner of her eyes. She did not say anything to him before going straight upstairs.
After showering and changing her clothes, Madeline put on her mask to walk out of the room again. She noticed that the entire place was still silent.
‘Weird. Where did everyone go?’
The more Madeline thought about this, the stranger she found it. She walked forward, and when she was about to go downstairs, she suddenly heard a loud c***h from the bedroom in front of her.
Judging from the direction of the noise, she was sure that it had come from her bedroom with Jeremy.
