Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 802 – This word cut across Madeline’s heart like an invisible sharp blade.
She watched Jeremy turn around unhesitantly, not even sparing a glance from the corner of his eyes.
‘Jeremy, you really believed my cold, hard lie back then.’
“It seems that he’s not as affectionate to you as I imagined he would be,” Felipe said with a soft smile, “There’s an important customer who wants to talk to me. You can eat something here first. I’ll come look for you later.”
Felipe turned around and left, leaving Madeline to stand there in a daze.
She walked to the long table, picked up a glass of red wine, and drank again.
However, she could no longer taste the sweet and delicate fragrance of the red wine—only the bitter taste reached her heart.
“Isn’t this Eveline Montgomery?”
“Whose woman do you think she is? Didn’t she just marry Jeremy a few months ago? Why is she with Jeremy’s uncle, Felipe, now?”
“Wealthy families are messy. I also heard that Jeremy and Felipe broke their relationship as uncle and nephew just to fight for her. Now, they remain friendly in appearance but are estranged at heart.”
“Tsk, beauty is a disaster. Indeed, the more beautiful a woman is, the more vicious she is!”
“Well, look at her, she looks like a vixen.”
Malicious whispers could be heard.
Madeline turned around gracefully while holding the wine glass. She faced the ladies who were trashing her while watching her.
“I understand your implications. If you want to praise me for being beautiful, you can say it straight to my face. There’s no need to beat around the bush. Everyone knows that the face of a vixen is usually very beautiful.”
The few ladies were humiliated when they heard her. They murmured while walking away angrily.
Madeline did not know if it was because she was angry with those people, but her chest suddenly became stuffy.
She drank another glass of red wine to try to relieve the tightness in her chest, but her stomach felt even more uncomfortable.
She wanted to go outside to get some air, but as soon as she turned around, she saw Jeremy walking in with a woman in a long dress.
Madeline looked intently and felt that this woman was a little familiar, but she could not put a finger on it.
Her face was really pretty, but it leaned to those popular faces one often saw.
Was this Jeremy’s girlfriend?
She guessed silently, seeing Jeremy leading the woman straight to her.
“Aunty Eveline, this is my girlfriend, Yvette Charis.” Jeremy introduced to her.
Madeline lifted the corners of her lips and maintained a smile. “Hello, I’m—”
She was about to introduce herself but was suddenly interrupted by Jeremy.
“This noble, elegant, and beautiful lady is my ex-wife, Eveline Montogomery. She’s the one I couldn’t get even after I had hollowed out my heart.”
She did not expect Jeremy to introduce her like this. Madeline did not know whether to laugh or cry.
“It turns out that you’re the Miss Montgomery who Jeremy’s heart can’t let go of.” Yvette smiled and lifted her hand to hold Jeremy’s arm. “Miss Montgomery, you’re indeed very pretty.”
“Thank you.” Madeline glanced at their tightly linked arms and smiled faintly, but her chest felt more stuffy and her stomach more nauseous.
“I won’t disturb the two of you. I’ll head to the washroom.” She found an excuse and turned around quickly. She really did not want to see Jeremy being lovey-dovey with another woman.
However, Madeline did not go to the washroom. She ran to the terrace to get some air. However, she could not relieve her discomfort at all.
The feeling of nausea welled up more turbulently and Madeline could not help but retch.
After retching a few times, she suddenly realized something.
As she touched her belly while frantically guessing in her heart, familiar footsteps were suddenly heard behind her.
