Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1770
Madeline felt the corners of her eyes turning hot from emotions. She had not heard this child talk in so long.
Now, she finally heard her talking again. That sweet voice was so clear and melodic.
Madeline saw a small figure in front of her and it was Lillian’s silhouette.
Madeline reached out her hand to grab Lillian and she finally grabbed a hand. However, she suddenly jolted awake and what came into her vision was Jeremy’s handsome face that was filled with worry.
“Linnie, did you have a dream about Lily?” Jeremy approached her and asked gently.
Madeline looked at her clenched fist and came back to her senses.
The happiness she felt just earlier immediately turned into endless disappointment.
“Yeah, I had a dream about her. I heard her talking to me too and she wanted me to go look for her.”
Knock, knock, knock.
When Jeremy was about to ask Madeline more questions, they heard someone knocking on the door of the lab.
The secretary pushed the door open and came in. She reported, “Mr. Whitman, Ms. Montgomery, someone named Carter Gray wants to see you.”
‘Carter is here?’
Jeremy and Madeline subconsciously started to be more alert.
This person surely had not come in peace.
Madeline recomposed her emotions and arrived at the reception room with Jeremy.
Carter was wearing a high-end limited edition custom-made suit, looking elegant and gentle.
However, when they thought about what he had done back then, the description seemed to have nothing to do with him.
When Carter saw Madeline and Jeremy walking over, he lifted the corners of his lips into a superficial smile before handing them the invitation card in his hand.
“I’m here to give this invitation to you two. I’m going to hold my wedding ceremony in the most luxurious six-star hotel under Whitman Corporation this Saturday.”
Carter had a smile on his face as he continued.
“Since we know each other, it means that we’ve been brought together by fate. I hope you two can come to my wedding. Please ask the staff of the hotel to give me their best service, Mr. Whitman.”
There were a lot of industries under Whitman Corporation. Jeremy did not know why Carter chose his hotel for his wedding ceremony and he also did not expect that Carter was able to find another woman to marry him in such a short period.
However, Jeremy was sure that the woman was not Shirley.
“Thank you for your acknowledgment of the hotel my company is managing, Mr. Gray. The hotel staff will act accordingly. As for your wedding, my wife and I—”
“We’ll be there on time.”
When Jeremy was about to reject Carter, Madeline interrupted him and accepted the invitation from Carter.
Madeline took Carter’s invitation and displayed a fake smile. “If there’s nothing else, you can leave now, Mr. Gray.”
Carter chuckled at Madeline’s perfunctory attitude.
“Yes, I don’t have anything else to say. However, I heard that you’re in some sort of kerfuffle recently. Your daughter has been kidnapped, right?”
After Lillian was kidnapped by Fabian, Jeremy had been using a lot of platforms to get news on Lillian and Fabian. Hence, it was not surprising that Carter would have heard about this.
Even though Madeline was bothered by this, she would not show her weakness in front of someone who was deliberately doing this just to see her embarrass herself.
She curled her pink lips and said calmly.
“Yes, such a thing has happened. However, it’s our issue, so we’ll take care of it. You don’t have to worry, Mr. Gray.”
Carter admired Madeline’s calm demeanor.
He looked at Madeline with a faint smile and knew she was actually very anxious deep down.
“You don’t have to be so against me. Perhaps I can provide you with information about the location of your precious daughter?”
