Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1591 – Jeremy looked at the lying butler and did not waste his time questioning him. He followed Carter’s entourage into the living room.
Carter was sitting on the sofa of the living room. He was flipping through a book lazily while sipping on his tea. When he saw Jeremy, he put down his book and teacup before getting up to greet him courteously.
“Mr. Whitman, welcome to my house. Please sit.”
Jeremy looked around the living room but did not see Madeline anywhere. He furrowed his brows and felt an unknown sense of anxiety in his heart.
“Mr. Gray, I’m not here as a guest. I’m here to take my wife Eveline home.” Jeremy was feeling agitated, but he was trying his best to control himself and stay cool.
Carter looked at the deeply worried look that was showing faintly in Jeremy’s eyes. However, he displayed a confused look instead.
“I’ve asked my driver to drive Mrs. Whitman home ten minutes ago. Did she not tell you?”
“You asked your driver to send my wife home?” Jeremy was confused. He had been waiting at the gate the entire time and did not see any cars coming or going.
“Yeah,” Carter answered with certainty. Then, he explained, “When we send our guests off, we’ll normally use the back door. So you might not have run into them on the road that leads to the front door.”
This explanation sounded reasonable, but it felt off to Jeremy.
“If you don’t believe me, you can call her now to ask if she’s on her way back,” Carter reminded him.
Jeremy did not hesitate before taking out his phone to call Madeline. After ringing for a while, she picked up the phone.
“Linnie, where are you now? Are you home?” Jeremy asked impatiently.
Madeline’s soft and gentle voice sounded from the other end of the phone. “Jeremy, I’m home now. My phone is running out of battery. I’ll see you later.”
It was indeed Madeline’s voice, so the weight on Jeremy’s chest was finally lifted.
“Alright, I’ll see you later,” he replied. Perhaps Madeline’s phone had run out of battery because before he could hear her reply, he heard the sound of the phone hanging up.
“Mr. Gray, thank you for saving my wife back then. If you need anything in Glendale, you can look for me anytime.” Jeremy thanked Carter.
Carter smiled. “You’re too courteous, Mr. Whitman. It doesn’t matter who was the one in the water back then, I’d still save them no matter what. It’s a human life, after all.”
“Thanks.” Jeremy thanked him again. “I’ll not disturb you then. I’ll see you in the future if we have the chance.”
“Alright, I’ll see you if I have the chance.” Carter nodded lightly and gestured to his entourage to send Jeremy off.
Looking at Jeremy’s back, Carter pressed his lips together and seemingly smiled. He then turned around and walked into the basement.
Jeremy quickly drove back to Whitman Manor. However, after he arrived, he did not see Madeline anywhere.
After asking the maids and Karen who was taking care of his youngest son, they all told her that Madeline never came back.
Jeremy’s heart started to feel perturbed. He then called Madeline’s number again but he got the automated voice telling him that she had turned off her phone.
He kept calling but her phone was still off and she could not be contacted.
“Did something happen to Eveline again?” Karen started to feel anxious as well.
“I shouldn’t have let her go by herself.” Jeremy started to regret it. The uneasiness in his heart started spreading all over his body.
