Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 611 – “Dad!” The little guy’s clear and sweet voice broke the silence.
Madeline raised her eyes and looked outside the iron gates.
It really was Jeremy.
He wore a simple casual outfit and the off-white shirt added a touch of warmth as well as elegance to his cold but handsome appearance.
Jeremy seemed to be a little surprised when he saw Madeline, but he quickly put on a light and gentle smile before walking toward the mother and son.
Madeline’s gaze fell on Jeremy’s heart subconsciously.
She thought of the day when Jeremy had forcibly held her hand to his own heart, piercing it.
The wound should not have healed so quickly.
“Daddy.” On his short legs, Jackson ran toward Jeremy.
Jeremy crouched down and spread his arms to greet the little guy. “Jack.”
He held the warm and soft little boy, kissing Jack’s cheek affectionately.
“You’ll be going to live somewhere else with your mom tomorrow. Listen to your mom, okay?” he whispered, his smiling eyes hiding his unspeakable struggle.
Jackson blinked as he looked at Jeremy with his large, clear, and innocent eyes. “Jack wants to live with his parents.”
Jeremy’s heart ached when he heard the words, but he smiled reluctantly and touched Jack’s little head. “Daddy has a lot of things to do. It’ll take a while. Once I’m done, I’ll come to you, alright?”
“Then, Daddy must come to see Jack. Mommy and I will always wait for Daddy,” Jackson said, stretching out a cute little pinky.
Jeremy understood and stretched out his little finger to hook it with Jackson’s.
Madeline silently watched on the side. There were no ripples on her gentle and demure face, but there were rising and falling waves in her heart.
Jeremy was done hooking pinkies with Jackson. Then, he handed over the beautifully wrapped gift box in his hand.
“This is a gift from me to Jack. I hope Jack will like it.”
Jackson embraced him with joy. “Thank you, Daddy.”
“Daddy must also have something to tell mommy, so Jack won’t stand in the way now,” Jackson said mischievously before his small body ran into the house.
Neither Jeremy nor Madeline had thought that such mature words would pop out of Jackson’s cute little mouth.
As soon as the little boy ran away, Jeremy and Madeline then faced each other. They were separated by a small distance, but they seemed to also be separated by a wall of air that obstructed each other’s footsteps.
Jeremy stood up slowly. He had always been calm and comfortable, but for some reason, he actually felt a little tense looking at Madeline who was standing in front of him at this moment.
Thinking about how she had looked when she passed out after falling into the water the other day, and then seeing her look ruddy and glowing at this moment, he quietly breathed a sigh of relief.
“I… I didn’t know that you’d be here. I just wanted to come and give Jack a gift before leaving,” Jeremy said after a long silence. He seemed to be unnaturally avoiding Madeline’s beautiful, clear, and moving eyes. Looking down with a smile, he said, “I won’t bother you now.”
The fluttering words fell as Jeremy slowly turned around.
His eyes were blown red by the wind the moment he turned around.
In fact, he had also wanted to say, ‘Linnie, it’s really nice seeing you today.’
‘Linnie, you’ll be leaving tomorrow and you’ll never see this scumbag again.
‘Without me, you’ll be happy.
‘What I actually want to say is… I’m sorry, Linnie…’
In the end, he could not say these words. He resisted the choking in his throat, and the scene in front of him was getting blurry.
Madeline silently looked at Jeremy’s fading back, recalling the same scene on the coast the other day. It was also as thin and lonely as it was at this moment.
Somehow, there was an indescribable sense of emptiness in her heart, and something had come up to her throat.
She wanted to call out to Jeremy, but she had just uttered the word ‘Jer’ when Felipe appeared in her eyes.
