Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1595 – Madeline’s answer felt like a clap of thunder striking above Jeremy’s head.
He felt as if his thoughts were being tugged at violently. He could not believe what he had just heard.
However, Jeremy tried his best to control his emotions and make himself calm. He explained patiently, “Linnie, you’ve never married another man aside from me in your life.”
Yet, Madeline only peered at Jeremy coldly. “I know my business. You don’t have to spew so much nonsense with me. I don’t want to hear it.”
Madeline said while walking to Carter.
Carter curled the corners of his lips quietly and pulled Madeline behind him.
When Jeremy saw this, he felt his heart growing cold. Back then, she would only stand behind him and they would face everything together fearlessly. However, she was standing behind another man now.
The more Jeremy thought about this, the more confused he was. He could not accuse Madeline of anything, so he shifted his questioning and hostile gaze to Carter.
“Mr. Gray, aren’t you going to explain this?”
Carter furrowed his eyebrows in confusion. “Do I need to explain anything to you?”
Jeremy felt the fire of rage in his heart spreading. “Eveline is my wife.”
Carter did not refute fiercely. Instead, he parted his lips and explained calmly, “But she’s now my wife. Plus, Eveline doesn’t want to have any interactions with you now.”
“How could Linnie be your wife?”
“If you don’t believe me, take a look at this, Mr. Whitman.” After Carter said that, his entourage delivered an envelope to them just in time.
After getting his hands on it, Carter took a look before handing it to Jeremy.
Jeremy reached out to take it and realized that it was a photocopy of an engagement agreement. It was clearly stated that Carter Gray and Eveline Montgomery had gotten engaged not long ago.
On the bottom right of the document, there were signatures and thumbprints of both of them.
Jeremy remembered Eveline telling him that she was only pretending to get engaged to Carter.
“I think you’ve already investigated my background and who I am, Mr. Whitman. So, you should know that from where we’re from, an engagement means a valid marriage. Hence, Eveline and I are now lawfully wedded husband and wife. Of course, if you insist that you haven’t divorced Eveline, then it means she has committed bigamy.”
While Carter was saying that, he paused for a while. A deep smile then appeared gradually on the corners of his lips.
“I wonder if you’ve ever investigated how they sentence people who’ve committed bigamy? Actually, you don’t have to calculate it according to our law. According to the laws in Glendale, you’ll be locked up for more than two years for bigamy. Is this what you want, Mr. Whitman?”
When Jeremy heard this, he completely understood.
Carter had come prepared.
Asking Madeline to help him get rid of the person he hated and cooperate with the act were just excuses.
What Carter wanted was the marriage certificate that was protected by the law after this paper took effect.
However, perhaps what made Jeremy feel the worst was not the marriage that had taken effect, but instead, it was Madeline’s coldness and alienation—also her repulsion.
How did his Linnie become like this, and all it took was an afternoon?
This was so strange.
Jeremy could not wrap his head around this.
“Cart, I don’t have an appetite anymore. I’ll go upstairs now.”
“Alright, you should go. I’ll join you in a bit.”
Madeline replied. Before she turned around, she stole a glance at Jeremy.
