Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1783
Fabian’s knowing gaze fell upon Evan’s face.
The candy in his mouth was sour and sweet, but he seemed unable to taste any of the sweetness, and an unknown bitter taste went from his throat straight to his heart.
“I’m quite interested to know. I wonder if Mr. Johnson would be willing to tell me the story behind this.”
Evan was full of curiosity. He and Fabian were considered close childhood friends who grew up together.
He was three years older than Fabian, and they had known each other since they were very young. Yorick had just been a teenager then, and he had neither money nor power. Of course, Fabian had just been a poor student, while Evan’s family background was among F Country’s circle of the rich and famous.
However, this had not stopped them from being good friends and brothers.
They had similar personalities. Both looked like rich and handsome yet frivolous young masters.
On the other hand, Evan had been more well- known for being the playful one in this circle. However, he was sharply different from this name and even turned out to be an exceptional pediatrician.
As for Fabian, he had now transformed into a businessman with some popularity in F Country.
However, he knew this popularity was mostly because of his brother Yorick.
Fabian did not drink much, but now, he would drink occasionally.
Now, he opened a bottle of red wine, poured a cup for Evan, then handed it over. He took a small sip himself too.
The red wine’s fine taste danced on his taste buds, mixing with the taste of the candy from just now, creating a subtle taste that Fabian had never tasted before.
This made Fabian recall the first time he met Lillian.
She had been such a young, pure, and adorable child. She would hug him and kiss him so innocently.
Back then, the moonlight shone on the pure, adorable, smiling face. He could still recall that he blushed slightly because his friends had been sniggering behind.
“Fabian, what are you smiling at? Aren’t you telling me the story? Why are you not speaking and smiling to yourself?”
Evan suddenly ridiculed him.
Fabian immediately returned to his senses, realizing that, as he was reminiscing about the first time he had met little Lillian, he was grinning without his volition.
However, he did not feel uneasy at all.
He downed the wine in his glass in a carefree manner, then turned to face Evan, who looked curious.
“Evan, I’ve decided that I’ll take care of her and heal her. I want to watch her grow up healthily by my side day by day.”
Evan thought he had misheard Fabian, staring blankly at Fabian.
“Fabian, what are you doing?”
However, Fabian spoke no further. The smile on his face became brighter.
Knock knock knock.
The knocking sounded from the study room door.
Fabian lifted his eyes and saw the maid standing by the door as she softly knocked on it.
“What is it?” He asked.
“Young Master Fabian, there’s a woman downstairs. She said that she’s here to take her daughter home, ” the maid politely reported.
When Fabian and Evan heard this, Madeline’s face immediately appeared in their minds.
Fabian was surprised, but when he looked down from the door of the study, he indeed saw Madeline standing in the living room.
‘Did she manage to find them? ‘No.
‘She must have followed them from the cafe.’
“You keep an eye on Lily. Tell the people in the room to avoid making any sound,” Fabian urged the maid.
