Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1819
The second Shirley spoke those words, the entire living room fell silent, and everything seemed to be frozen in place.
Shirley had expected that reaction from Camille and Ada.
“What… What did you just say?” Camille asked her again with joy on her face. “Shirley, can you repeat what you just said?”
Looking at Camille’s astonished face, Shirley unhurriedly repeated her words.
“I said, I’m pregnant, and the baby belongs to Carter.”
“ .” Ada’s expression darkened when she heard what Shirley had said for the second time.
Camille, on the other hand, was overjoyed.
“ Is this true, Shirley? Are you really pregnant with Carter’s baby?” Camille was unable to conceal her happiness.
Shirley calmly nodded her head. “Yes, I’m one month pregnant with Carter’s baby.”
“…” Ada looked at Shirley’s confident eyes. Ada’s mouth twitched, and her expression completely fell.
“Shirley, stop spouting nonsense. How is it possible that you’re pregnant with Carter’s baby? How could Carter have that kind of relationship with you?”
Ada questioned, refusing to believe her.
Camille kept quiet because she knew, and had always known, that Carter liked Shirley.
All the while.
When Carter had brought Shirley home previously, Camille had already anticipated that the two of them would somehow be emotionally involved.
Sure enough, Carter eventually developed a sense of dependency and love for Shirley.
Shirley remained unperturbed in the face of Ada’s skepticism.
Shirley lifted her eyes. Even without any makeup, her eyes displayed clarity and energy.
“You could ask Carter directly to find out whether or not I’m lying. Don’t you agree, Mrs. Gray?”
Shirley looked at Camille as she asked, “Well, where is Carter now? Is he afraid to see me?”
“ Shirley, you…” Ada was angry, but she dared not speak.
She glanced over at Camille who was already giving a call to Carter, who answered it shortly.
“Carter, come home immediately. It’s something important. Don’t ask. Just come home now.” Camille’s tone was urgent, not permitting Carter a chance to reject.
The call was swiftly disconnected, and Camille turned to look at Shirley. “Carter will be home shortly. Just take a seat for now.”
“Thank you, Mrs. Gray. I’ve been sitting all this time, haven’t I? I guess it’ll be hard for me to stand up again for the rest of my life.”
“….” A slight change came over Camille’s expression. She turned around and sat on the sofa a t the side. She looked at Cathy and politely greeted her, “You’re welcome to sit down as well.”
“Thank you, ” Cathy replied politely and sat down next to Shirley.
“What exactly happened to your legs?” Camille asked. Her attitude seemed kinder than before.
Shirley threw a glance at Ada, whose eyes showed clear signs of guilt, and replied nonchalantly.
“Maybe I’ve committed too many bad deeds. As a result, I was knocked down by a car. This is probably God’s punishment for me.”
“ ” Camille was speechless after listening to Shirley’s self-deprecating words.
