Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1978 – Madeline’s sudden gesture caused Jeremy to stop abruptly.
He felt his heart beating faster, but it was not a joyous rhythm.
“Jeremy, do you have something on your mind?”
Madeline finally asked. She did feel that Jeremy looked perturbed.
Upon hearing that, Jeremy lifted his eyes and shook his head.
“The biggest thing on my mind is you.” “Really?” Madeline giggled.
“I’m sorry, Linnie. I was thinking about something just now so I didn’t catch the teacup. I’ve caused you pain.” Jeremy caressed the back of Madeline’s leg which had been b****d as his heart ached, even though the b**n was not too serious.
Madeline smiled softly. “I know you didn’t do it on purpose. I can endure such pain, but I can’t endure you having something on your mind which you aren’t telling me.”
After Madeline said this, Jeremy’s expression looked solemn.
Madeline recomposed herself and asked, “Is it about the maid?”
When Jeremy heard this, a look of loss evidently flashed across his face.
Madeline furrowed her eyebrows as well. “That day… Did something really happen between you and her?”
After she said that, Madeline could see that Jeremy’s expression froze.
That was not a good sign.
Madeline’s heart skipped a beat, and she started to look as if she was at a loss.
She did not want to think too much at this moment, but the air around her started to become heavy.
After a while, Jeremy lifted his eyes and looked into Madeline’s eyes who looked as if they were at a complete loss.
“Linnie, I was framed by Carter.”
Carter’s helpless statement passed through Madeline’s ears.
He was framed.
Madeline’s heart sank. She understood the meaning behind this sentence.
She looked at Jeremy. After a while, she came back to her senses and blinked before speaking.
“I know you didn’t mean it.”
Madeline turned her face to recompose herself, but the moment she stood up and her b****d leg touched the ground, she felt a pang of pain.
“Hiss.” Madeline could not help but let out a groan of pain.
Jeremy reflexively grabbed Madeline’s shoulder. “ Linnie.”
He felt a pain in his heart. When he saw Madeline’s dazed expression, he felt even worse.
“Linnie, I ate a small piece of cake, and after I ate it, I felt dizzy. I don’t remember how I got to the room, and I don’t know how I ended up with the maid…”
“Wait,” Madeline interrupted Jeremy.
There was longing in her eyes. “You don’t know how you got to the room? Did you only wake up after? Do you think that nothing happened between
you two and that was just a ruse?”
Madeline analyzed it this way because something like this had indeed happened before.
Moreover, she felt that while the man was muddleheaded, it would be hard for him to do anything to a woman.
However, Madeline did not get the answer she wanted to hear.
She saw Jeremy furrowing his brows in annoyance. This meant that her analysis and imagination were wrong.
The light in Madeline’s eyes dimmed, but she did not want to blame Jeremy.
“Carter really knows how to exact his vengeance on us, ” Madeline lamented and chuckled softly. She lifted her eyes to look at the apologetic man. “ Jeremy, I want to be alone for a while.”
