Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1997 – Upon hearing what Madeline said, Fabian’s finger, which hovered over the hang-up button, suddenly stopped.
Madeline’s gaze on the screen was earnest.
Fabian had vaguely guessed what Madeline was going to say to him, and he had the urge to hang up again.
However, Madeline also seemed to have predicted this, so she immediately said, “Fabian, I will be going to F Country in these two days, and I want to take Lily home while I’m there.”
Fabian seemed completely unsurprised upon hearing what Madeline said.
He had already expected it, and this is probably the only topic that Madeline had in common with him at the moment.
Seeing that Fabian merely looked at the phone without speaking, Madeline almost predicted the result.
“You can at least let me meet my daughter, can’t you?”
Madeline made a concession. Fabian stayed silent for another two seconds, and then he said, “We’ll talk about it when we can meet.”
After saying this, Fabian hung up the video call.
At the other end of the line, Madeline stared at the phone screen and then looked at Jeremy who was sitting next to her helplessly.
“Linnie, don’t worry so much. At least Fabian is willing to talk to us now,” Jeremy comforted softly.
Madeline sighed quietly and then gently leaned her head on Jeremy’s shoulder. “I really miss Lily.”
Jeremy raised his hand and put his arm around Madeline’s shoulder. “There have been a lot of troubling things happening all this while. We could go to F Country to relax and take Lily home if we have the chance. Then, our family of five will be reunited.”
“I also really want to relax with you, Jeremy, but your leg injury is still recovering. I can’t allow you to run around with me.”
As Madeline spoke, she raised her worried yet beautiful eyes and gave Jeremy a serious look. “ Remember, the most important thing for you now is to recuperate.”
Jeremy reached out to hold Madeline’s hand, then he put it to his lips dotingly and kissed it repeatedly. “Linnie, no need to be so concerned for me. There’s nothing more important than you in my heart.”
Knock, knock, knock.
As soon as Jeremy finished speaking, someone knocked loudly at the door, and then Karen immediately pushed the door open and entered.
“Mom, what’s the matter?” Madeline got up and asked. Seeing how flustered Karen looked, she felt a little worried.
Karen pointed to the door. “That woman, the one who made a fuss and threatened to k**l herself downstairs in the company, is at the door now. I also saw a few reporters behind her.”
After hearing this, Madeline and Jeremy knew what was going on.
If Hannah could get here, someone must have revealed the address of the old house to her, and this person was likely to be one of the reporters.
Their purpose was to dig out more news to increase traffic.
Madeline changed her clothes decisively. When she looked back and saw that Jeremy was also going downstairs, she stopped him. “Do you remember what I said just now? Wait for me here.”
Madeline’s eyes were extremely firm. “Trust your wife, and trust that no one can spread rumors at the gate of Whitman Manor.”
Madeline turned around after speaking, but Jeremy grabbed her hand.
Jeremy’s eyes were gentle yet firm. “Call me if you need me.”
“I will.” Madeline nodded and smiled before leaving.
Karen also hurriedly followed her. “I’m going to keep an eye on Eveline. If those people dare do anything out of line, I will have the bodyguards kick them all out! ”
Jeremy looked at Karen’s back figure as she hurriedly caught up to Madeline. Deep down, he was deeply moved.
