Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1825 – Ada, who was listening to their conversation behind the door, was frightened by Carter’s furious questioning, and her face turned pale.
‘If Shirley told the truth, how would I explain myself?’
She anxiously thought. Suddenly, she realized that the study room had become unusually quiet.
Feeling uneasy and curious, Ada leaned closer to the door, her ears practically pressing against it.
She heard a soft “click, ” and the door abruptly swung open.
Carter was standing right in front of Ada, and she turned rigid, unsure of what to do. After a few seconds, she regained her composure and adopted a n awkward demeanor; her face also feigned a gentle smile.
“Carter, I… I was just worried about you. I wasn’t eavesdropping.” Ada smiled forcefully as she tried to explain, but she noticed Carter’s unusually dark expression at the moment.
She intended to peep into the study room to see what was happening with Shirley, but her gaze was met by Carter’s cold, icy stare.
“It seems you are much smarter that I expected.”
Upon hearing Carter’s word, Ada froze, and her heart skipping a beat.
Carter, I…I’m not sure what you’re talking about. I….
“You don’t have the right to address me by name. Did you really believe that we got married because I’ve changed my perception of you? You’d never have joined this family if it weren’t because of your family’s worth to me.”
Although Ada already knew that her marriage and her title as Carter’s wife were predicated upon her family ties, hearing it directly from Carter was still an emotional blow to her.
“You’re very brave. You actually dared to harm my woman behind my back.”
Carter’s words pierced through Ada’s heart.
Ada knew that Shirley must have told Carter the truth, thus, he was behaving this way toward Ada.
She shook her head rapidly, acting as if she had been wronged. “Carter, I have no idea what you’re talking about. When did I hurt anyone? Who’re you referring to? Is it Eveline?”
“Hah.” Carter laughed coldly. “There’s only one woman I care about, and she’s the one who is carrying my child.”
“ .” Ada had not expected Carter to bring up his relationship with Shirley this way. Ada’s heart sank once again.
She could not accept this; her heart was burning with jealousy.
However, Ada knew that she must control her emotions lest she put herself into a disadvantageous position, so she could only feign sadness, forcing tears out of her eyes.
“Really? Do you love Miss Brown? Why are you doing this to me? Carter, you know how I feel about you. All these years, I’ve loved you with all my heart. I was willing to marry you despite knowing that you’re using me for your purposes. All I ever wanted was to be your wife…”
“Stop acting. Did you think I’m unaware that you’re seeking the viscountess title? Your family’s only helping me so that you can gain a higher power and position. We married for mutual benefit. You don’t have to act innocent.”
Ada’s expression darkened as she listened to Carter’s extremely blunt words.
She used her peripheral vision to glance into the study room while putting on a look of disappointment on her face.
“Carter, I know you won’ t believe anything I say now, but the feelings I have for you are genuine.
I’m truly heartbroken. I’ll just get going. I’d rather not disturb you while you both catch up.”
She pretended to wipe away some tears before turning around to leave.
However, Shirley’s voice broke through the study room before Ada could even take a step.
