Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1709 – Adam tried to make some noises to get Jeremy’s attention while he was downstairs.
Cathy also tried to slam on the door while screaming. However, there seemed to be no sounds of activities around them even after a long while. It appeared that no one had heard them.
Jeremy heard some noises, but he did not know where the noises came from. He only knew that someone was repeatedly knocking.
He felt that something was amiss. When he was about to go upstairs, he saw Carter at the staircase.
“Don’t you think it’s inappropriate for you to come to my house so late at night, Mr. Whitman?” Carter’s face was as cold as an iceberg as he came downstairs emotionlessly.
“Whose name were you calling out just now? Shirley?”
When Jeremy saw Carter pretending to look confused, he looked at him coldly.
“Carter, stop pretending. Shirley is part of this whole plan with you. I already know it.”
“Oh? Really?” Carter asked coldly with a calm and indifferent expression. “If that’s the case, why are you still here? If you know we’re in this together and that the poison in your wife’s body doesn’t have an anti-toxoid test reagent, why did you still come to me?”
“You don’t have to teach me how to do things! Get me Shirley!” Jeremy did not have time to beat around the bush with Carter. His heart was now occupied with the desire to ease Madeline’s discomfort. However, only Shirley was able to help Madeline now because she was the person who created this poison.
When Carter saw Jeremy so deeply worried about Madeline, a small smile appeared on the corners of his lips.
He asked a maid to bring some tea over. He sat down on the sofa leisurely to drink the tea.
“Carter, ask Shirley to come out. I know she must be here.” Jeremy was sure. It had always been easy for him to track someone in Glendale.
If he wanted to find someone, he would have no problems doing it.
He also knew about Shirley and Carter coming to Glendale back then.
Carter slowly took a sip of his tea. “Even if she comes out to see you, she doesn’t have an anti-toxoid test reagent for you. Even if she does, it’s only able to ease your wife’s condition temporarily.”
“Don’t spew nonsense with me.” Jeremy’s patience was wearing thin. “Carter, you can do whatever you want in St. Piaf, but let me remind you, this is Glendale!”
Carter’s hand that was holding the teacup froze.
It looked as if he was contemplating something. After that, when he was about to say something, a loud bang came from upstairs. It sounded as if someone had kicked a door open.
Jeremy and Carter looked in the direction of the sound at the same tie. The next second, Shirley’s figure appeared in their vision.
Carter’s gaze turned cold. He placed his teacup down and stood up coldly.
When Jeremy saw Shirley, he quickly ran to her.
He grabbed her wrist and tightened his grip on her without mercy. “Shirley, where is the anti-toxoid test reagent? Give it to me now!”
Shirley knitted her beautiful eyebrows in pain. Then, she curled her red lips into a smile.
“Is the poison flaring up again?”
“Stop asking when you clearly know the answer. Where is the anti-toxoid test reagent?”
“I need time to develop the test reagent and I don’t have any extra anti-toxoid test reagent with me anymore,” Shirley said carefreely. However, after she said that, she could feel the grip on her wrist tightening.
“Really? No more? Alright!” Jeremy said and pulled Shirley forcefully into the direction of the door.
When they had only taken a few steps, Carter’s cold and indifferent voice could be heard from behind them.
“Let go of her.” His tone was indistinct but filled with imposing chills.
Jeremy ignored Carter’s warning and continued dragging Shirley over to the door.
The next second, Jeremy suddenly heard the sound of someone loading a bullet into a gun. Then, a force came whooshing behind his ear at lightning speed.
His hearing was exceptional and he was very nimble.
In just a split second, he dodged the bullet that flew past the side of his face.
Carter had fired the gun.
Jeremy stopped, and Shirley, who witnessed this scene, was startled.
