Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 746 – Although Felipe had contacted her while she was away, Madeline made no move to reply.
Jeremy, however, had remained silent.
As if he understood her desire, he no longer disturbed her.
The few days after her return, Madeline dealt with matters of her work before bringing a signed check and a few documents to Felipe’s villa.
Felipe did not seem to be present when she arrived. Madeline walked in and was met with Cathy sitting despondently on the couch. Her complexion was horrible and she did not seem to be in the best mental state.
“Are you alright, Cathy?” Madeline approached and asked.
Cathy snapped back to reality and realized that Madeline was here. “Why are you here, Eveline? Felipe went out.”
“Call me Evie, Cathy.”
Cathy’s expression changed into confusion. “Why?”
Madeline shook her head with a small smile. “Let’s talk about you instead, Cathy. How are you doing? Why do you look so lost?”
“Hmm? I’m fine.” Cathy smiled carefreely.
Oh, how she wished she had someone to talk to her problems about, but Madeline was hardly an option.
Ever since Felipe realized that she had gotten pregnant and aborted the child, he resorted to punishing her every night with an aura of unadulterated anger.
Her body had yet to recover from her a******n.
Despite Cathy saying that she was fine, Madeline did not let the matter go and instead asked kindly, “Is something wrong with your baby? You can tell me if you feel uncomfortable somewhere. I might be able to help.”
Cathy’s eyes reddened at the mention of the aborted child. “The baby’s gone.”
Madeline was stunned. “How could it be?”
“Perhaps this child was never meant to be mine.” Cathy wiped away the tears that gathered around her eyes and suddenly reached out to grab Madeline’s hand, pleading, “I may not know what happened between you and Felipe, Eveline, but please. Don’t be angry at him anymore, okay? He really loves you, he does!”
The moment her plea fell, Felipe appeared in her line of vision.
Cathy immediately let go of Madeline’s hand. “Felipe.”
She greeted, staring behind Madeline.
However, Madeline had felt the sudden drop in temperature on Cathy’s hand. She turned around and saw Felipe walking toward her.
“You asked for me, Eveline?” Felipe did not spare Cathy a glance at all. Madeline was all his dark eyes saw.
Madeline nodded. “I would like to end things between us.”
Felipe’s lips curled humorlessly. “Follow me.”
Turning around, the corner of his eyes swept over Cathy.
Cathy stared anxiously at Felipe’s retreating figure as she clenched her fingers nervously.
In the study.
Madeline started right off the bat by handing the check and the relating documents to him.
Felipe spared them a glance and frowned. “What’s the meaning of this, Eveline?”
Madeline’s expression was solemn. “You saved me once years ago and that’s something I will never be able to repay you. The fact that I’ve become a jewelry designer with my own company is immensely thanks to your support. As a result, I’d like to transfer all of Miss L.ady’s stocks to you.”
“Are you severing our ties?” Felipe was close enough that he dominated Madeline’s entire vision.
“I cannot possibly bring myself to continue being friends with the person who k****d my daughter.” Madeline was decisive. “I’m still very grateful that you saved me back then, Felipe, and I will do everything I can to repay you for saving my life. However, we’re no longer friends.”
Madeline then turned around. She was about to leave when Felipe caught her wrist.
She struggled, but Felipe was stronger and pulled her toward him.
He leaned down, his expression void of the warmth it once held. His eyes were filled with possessiveness. They were close enough that all Madeline’s determined eyes could see was him. He then spoke in a deep baritone voice that could almost be described as wicked.
“You know that’s not what I want, Eveline. You want to sever our ties? No problem. As long as you repay me for saving your life with yourself.”
