Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 747 – There was no way Madeline did not understand what Felipe implied, yet she merely stared unyieldingly at the man’s piercing gaze.
“Do you mean it, Felipe? Because if you do, then it means that I’m not blaming you for something you didn’t do. You were never the gentleman I thought you were.”
Felipe’s gaze darkened as his hand around Madeline loosened its grip.
Madeline’s gaze was determined when she pulled her hand back without hesitation. “I will investigate what happened to Lillian and find proof of who did it. I won’t let my daughter d*e such an unclear d***h.”
“I’ve already told you that I didn’t do anything to hurt Lillian.” Felipe’s tone was assertive. “You’d rather believe a man who made your life a living h**l than the one who pulled you back from the edge of d***h, Eveline?”
Madeline was unfazed as she responded, “Do you know what the biggest difference between you and Jeremy is?”
Felipe stared at Madeline in confusion as Madeline chuckled.
“You’re right, his actions are unforgivable. But at least he owns up to his mistakes and is willing to repent and change. He has never shifted the blame to anyone else.”
Madeline’s gaze turned into one of disappointment as she stared at Felipe.
“That’s the biggest difference between the two of you.”
Then, she turned and left without another word.
Felipe’s brows knitted tighter with every step Madeline took as she walked further away. The flames of fury roared in his chest. He felt more infuriated with each passing second.
“Hmph. Owns up to his mistakes?” Felipe scoffed as a dark look crawled into his deep eyes. “I won’t give him the chance to have you again, Eveline. If you won’t come to me, then don’t blame me for what I’m about to do.”
Cathy came to look for Felipe after she saw Madeline leaving.
Walking into the kitchen, she felt the temperature around her drop. Her eyes recognized the anger in Felipe’s expression and she felt that she was in danger.
She was wondering if she should enter when Felipe caught sight of her.
“Come in,” he ordered, his tone slightly gentle.
Cathy trembled in fear as she walked toward him. “Felipe.”
Felipe’s narrow eyes were cold as he looked Cathy over.
Suddenly, the corner of his lips quirked as a slender finger came to tilt Cathy’s chin up.
Cathy shivered reflexively at the skin-on-skin contact.
“Are you that afraid of me?” Felipe approached her, his minty scent engulfing Cathy. His tone was cheeky as he said, “Afraid that I’ll eat you alive?”
Cathy froze, her clear bright eyes filled with anxiousness and franticness.
With a look of interest, Felipe took in Cathy’s mixed emotions of fear while also wanting to be closer to him. His smile deepened. “It’s alright, hmm? Even if you’ve done something to anger me, I promise I won’t let you suffer too much.”
“I’ve provided for your education over the past decade, haven’t I? I even sent you to the most advanced and professional institution for your training. I suppose it’s time for me to check the results, hmm?”
Cathy’s expression shifted as unease and fear piled thicker on her feminine and delicate features.
She had prayed that the day she would need to use the knowledge she learned from that so-called professional institution would never come, but she could not go against Felipe’s wishes.
“Don’t fail me. You know how that angers me.” Felipe leaned down to capture Cathy’s pink lips in a light k**s.
Cathy was stunned. While Felipe had done almost everything to her as of recent, she had never received such a gentle k**s from him.
“Be good and complete the mission I give you. Or you can forget about being mine.”
