Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 823 – “Does sleeping together count as being very close to each other?” Felipe counter-questioned.
Yvette shook her head with a smile. “You can’t prove how close two people are just because they’ve slept with each other before. After all, there are way too many people having one-night stands these days.”
“We weren’t just having a one-night stand. I’ve spent many nights with her.” Felipe lowered his voice as he inched closer to Yvette. His eyes were sparkling with suspicion. Just when he attempted to examine her face meticulously, his phone rang.
He glanced at the incoming call and immediately wore a soothing smile. “Miss Charis, I have a call to answer. We’ll talk about it when we get the chance.”
“Sure, Mr. Whitman.” Yvette stared at Felipe as he spun around. Her smile gradually faded.
At the garden of the hall.
Madeline supported herself against the wall, unable to control herself from retching.
She could no longer differentiate whether it was because of her body feeling unwell, or it was because she was feeling emotionally disturbed when she witnessed Jeremy acting all intimately with another lady.
“What are you plotting at by taking on the suffering of conceiving a kid of a man who had harmed our daughter, Eveline?”
Jeremy’s inquiry that was uttered in an unsatisfied tone was heard from behind. Madeline came to realize that Jeremy had already shown up behind her.
Clenching her fist, she said in a cold tone, “It’s none of your business.”
“If it’s really none of my business, you wouldn’t have run away from witnessing me getting engaged to another woman.”
“You’re interesting, Mr. Whitman. I’m just having morning sickness which is very common during pregnancies, so I wanted to come out and get some fresh air.” Madeline denied it calmly. “Why are you always thinking that I’ve not gotten over you?”
“If you’re really not bothered or sad, then are you brave enough to turn around and face me?”
“Why should I turn around to look at a scumbag who I hate?” Madeline snorted. “Since you’ve completed the engagement ceremony with your fiancée, I guess there’s no more reason for Felipe and me to stay here any longer.”
Suppressing the uneasiness she was experiencing, she headed straight for the side exit of the hall.
She could not afford to turn around as she did not dare to do so. She was afraid that when she faced the man, the latter would notice her eyes that had become teary long ago.
Madeline just wanted to get away from Jeremy’s vision and did not notice a car coming from the side.
She heard the honking of the car, and at the same time, she felt a warm hug that grabbed her from her waist.
Jeremy held her tightly in his arms and brought her to a safe zone.
Madeline appreciated how Jeremy was exerting a lot of strength into hugging her as if he was afraid that she would escape the moment he let loose.
“Even though you don’t want to face me, you shouldn’t go around risking your life.” His deep voice was heard coming from the top of her head. His voice was trembling.
Madeline wished she could remain in his arms, but she forced herself to push him away. “As long as you don’t keep bothering me, I won’t have to risk my safety.”
She suppressed her tears from rolling out of her eyes and shoved him to another woman. “Go keep your fiancée company. I don’t need your protection.”
Madeline walked off when she suddenly heard Jeremy’s cold voice coming from behind.
“Get rid of the kid in you and stay away from Felipe. This is my last advice to you as your ex-husband.”
Madeline remained composed with her back still facing Jeremy. “Listen up, Jeremy. Even if I d*e, I’ll still keep this kid alive.”
Her stubbornness left Jeremy in a contradictory state.
‘Eveline, leaving him is for your own good.
‘But you’d rather risk your life just to protect that man’s child.
‘It seems that you really do love him.’
His phone rang and he answered it. The person on the other end of the phone’s words made Jeremy’s eyes dim. “Is this news reliable? Alright, I’ll board the next flight and will meet you soon.”
He hung up the call, spun around, and saw Yvette walking to him. “Do you know that Felipe has a warehouse in F Country on Third Street?”
Yvette shook her head. “Regarding his business matters, he has never allowed me to get involved. What’s wrong?”
