Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1798
Jeremy stuttered; his words stuck in his throat.
Jeremy trembled before the look in Madeline’s eyes which were staring upon him.
“Linnie?” Madeline repeated the word and suddenly let out a soft but cold chuckle. “What’s wrong with you? The man who I love most but hates me most is now calling me Linnie.”
Madeline giggled and slowly got up.
Jeremy wanted to head over to support her but was rejected disdainfully by Madeline.
He could tell that Madeline was not in her right mind now as her reddened eyes sparkled, contrasting her unusually pale face.
Madeline, supporting herself with one hand, sat up on the bed, and her other hand suddenly went to her chest.
She closed her eyes and breathed strenuously.
The normal rhythm of her breathing and heartbeat were disrupted.
“Linnie, would you please give me some time and hear me out?” Jeremy pleaded with a meek tone.
Madeline’s cool and composed attitude before him made him recall her vengeful look back then.
He was terrified of the feeling he had experienced back then. The feeling of being stared upon by her cold eyes. Even now, he could still vividly recall it.
Evan, seeing the scene played out from the side, tactfully turned around to leave.
After leaving the scene, he called Fabian and asked how much longer before Fabian could reach.
In the ward.
Madeline slowly made her way to the side of the window, distancing herself from Jeremy.
Madeline could not comprehend the reason behind her pain right now, but her mind was filled with images of Jeremy giving in to Meredith and harming Madeline. Regardless of whether Madeline closed or opened her eyes, Madeline could only see herself drenched in blood, images of her being covered in injuries, and a scene in which Madeline
stood before Jeremy’s grave, hating him to his core.
“Jeremy, back then, you told me that when I’m older, you’ll marry me and make me your wife. Such a beautiful promise you’ve made, yet it merely turns out to be a lie.”
As Madeline spoke, she lifted her teary, gorgeous eyes and coldly looked at Jeremy.
“That demon, Meredith, has done so many bad deeds, yet you still pamper her. You have eyes but no heart.
“Jeremy, the biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my entire life was heeding your lie back then. In the end, my eyes were blinded by my love for a man like you. If I could turn back the clock, I’d still choose to meet you, but I wouldn’t fall in love with you the way I did in the past because a scumbag like you is not worth it.”
Despite knowing that it was the poison’s influence on Madeline’s thoughts and emotions, and even knowing that she was not saying how she truly felt, the words were like fragments of glass pouring suddenly over Jeremy’s heart when he heard it.
It was something that instantly drenched him in blood.
When he thought of the harm he had caused her back then, he wondered, ‘How could I have any grievance?’
“Please hear me out, Linnie. ” Jeremy attempted to approach her.
Madeline tilted her face coldly toward him. “I don’t want to hear another word from you. I won’t beg for your trust. Jeremy, you can just go and find your beloved. From now on, I don’t want to see you again.”
Jeremy’s throat moved slightly as he swallowed his pain. “Linnie, I, Jeremy Whitman, will only love you in my entire life.”
“Hmph.” Madeline laughed softly, and her gorgeous eyes fell upon Jeremy’s pleading, meek- looking face.
Madeline felt as if she had never seen such an expression, and she was briefly stunned.
Upon noticing the slight reaction in Madeline, Jeremy attempted to approach her again, then suddenly grabbed her hand.
