Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1651 – Jeremy turned around, calm and composed. With an indifferent expression, he faced the woman who was walking toward him.
“The sudden flaring of the poison in my body wasn’t due to chance, but rather a scheme, correct?” Jeremy asked directly. “You’ve never been helping me from the start, were you, Shirley, or should I call you Ms. Brown?”
Shirley, one arm folded while the other held a thin and long cigarette, leisurely took a long drag, and walked toward Jeremy while puffing away.
“When you thought you were at d***h’s door and then decided to leave Eveline willingly before serendipitously meeting me, the ‘doctor’, on the plane–all of this was indeed a scheme”.
Shirley, her red lips curled, walked toward Jeremy and stopped in front of him.
“I’m quite moved by you, actually, but I enjoy conducting experiments even more. However, I’m not the same as Adam. He likes to save people, while I like to… harm people.”
She admitted with a magnanimous look, the smile on her grew more intense.
Jeremy inexplicably felt the woman in front of him to be completely unfamiliar. In the past, she had always seemed like a nice person. During those moments being tormented by the poison, she had come to his aid, and his situation had indeed stabilized ever since.
Judging from what the woman was saying now, however, she had never been helping him. She only wanted to achieve her personal goals.
Shirley smiled and took another drag of smoke.
“Jeremy, you’re truly quite smart. I originally intended to continue this pretense, but you immediately asked me if I was scheming against you as you came out, so I figured that I shouldn’t beat around the bush any further.”
“Then don’t. What are you trying to do? Are you planning to use the poison in my body to continue treating me as your experimental subject or what?”
“No.” Shirley chuckled and shook her head, the corner of her eyes crinkling. “Let me tell you then. You and Eveline can’t leave St. Piaf unless you pay a certain price.”
“Is this what you wanted to remind me as per your message?”
“Heh.” Jeremy could not help but burst out laughing lightly, his eyes were filled with suspicion. “Don’t you think that you’re contradicting yourself? Shirley, are you reminding me this because you have good intentions? The fact that you’re making the situation sound so serious must imply that you have another motive?”
As he said this, Jeremy suddenly felt something was amiss.
He suddenly thought of something. His expression changed abruptly, and he strode vigorously toward the room.
However, for some reason, the key card in his hands could not unlock the hotel room door.
In a moment of panic, Jeremy’s heartbeat lost all control. He yelled at the door of the room. “Linnie, Linnie!”
Jeremy yelled a couple of times, yet Madeline’s response could not be heard.
Bang bang bang!
Jeremy banged the door with force. In the absence of Madeline’s response, he was panicking so much that he was about to kick the door open.
Just as he lifted his leg, the door opened with a click.
A drowsy Madeline, eyes hazy, looked at Jeremy’s anxious face, which immediately banished Madeline’s sleepiness. “Jeremy, what’s wrong? Why do you look so flustered? Where did you go?”
Jeremy grabbed Madeline’s hands and examined Madeline all over. Once he had verified that she was fine, he then let out a sigh of relief.
He subconsciously looked back at Shirley, but he realized that this woman was no longer in the corridor.
Noticing Jeremy’s movement, Madeline also lifted her eyes to look over, but she did not see anything.
“Jeremy, are you okay?” Inevitably, she was worried.
Jeremy held Madeline’s hand and pulled her back to the middle of the room, closing the door tightly behind him.
“Linnie, you have to be careful when you meet Carter tonight.”
He solemnly reminded her. Madeline could tell that something was wrong.
