Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1740 – “I don’t know if her leg will recover, but I’m sure you have a way to heal her face, right?”
When Cathy asked this, her eyes were twinkling.
She believed that Adam had this ability.
After she asked that, both of them fell into a brief moment of silence.
Adam looked as if he was thinking about something. After a while, he lifted his head and looked at Cathy with a small smile on his handsome, flawless face.
“Thank you, Cathy.”
“If you thank me, you’re treating me as an outsider. Adam, you’re like my family member, so you don’t have to be courteous to me.”
When those two words reached Adam’s ears, he felt happy yet disappointed at the same time.
However, he was feeling more delighted than anything.
After all, a family member went beyond a friend; it was a special presence.
Shirley was transferred to a private hospital ward.
After being unconscious for a day, she woke up in the middle of the night.
Despite feeling very weak when she lifted her hand, she still used all her might to touch her face.
The thick layer of bandages on her cheek proved that what had happened before was not a dream but reality. Her face had really been d********d.
Shirley felt her heart turning cold, and when she was about to move, she suddenly realized that her legs were not responding to her. She wanted to move but could not. She had even lost all feelings in her legs.
‘How is this possible?’
Beads of cold sweat appeared on Shirley’s forehead. She tried to move again but she still could not move her legs.
In that instant, it was like a bolt from the blue and it struck her straight in the heart, splitting it into two.
She felt as if all of the blood in her body had been drained and her entire body was cold.
In addition to that, it felt as if the night sky outside the window had shrouded her. She felt that everything in front of her was black and icy.
While she was feeling distracted, Shirley saw a figure from the corner of her eyes. Then, she turned her head to see Adam sitting on the chair at the side of the bed with his eyes closed. He looked exhausted because his brows were still furrowed even when he had fallen asleep.
When Shirley thought about her current situation, she felt that this was oddly laughable.
At this moment, Shirley felt as if her heart had lost its normal rhythm. Soon after, her breathing started to become rapid.
She reflexively lifted her hand to press it against her heart, but she still could not soothe this uncontrollable feeling.
She knew very well that this was one of the symptoms when the poison flared up.
She did not forget how Jeremy had personally injected the poison into her veins that day.
She chuckled coldly with self-mockery. This was karma.
This was karma, indeed.
Shirley gritted her teeth and gripped the blanket tightly. She looked at Adam who was sleeping soundly and slowly moved her upper body.
At this moment, she only wanted to leave. She would get out of here even if she crawled.
However, her lack of energy and the injuries she sustained after the accident would not allow her to do so. Plus, due to the poison in her body, she would have difficulties breathing. How could she crawl out of here?
However, Madeline was still determined. She endured the debilitating pain to try to move again, but her body tilted to one side and she lost her balance before falling straight to the hard floor.
However, at this moment, a pair of warm hands held her.
