Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1835
After Fabian expressed his displeasure to the person on the phone, he was ready to disconnect the call.
At this moment, a man’s deep voice came through the line.
“Don’t forget, Fabian. If I hadn’t told you the truth, you’d still be kept in the dark by Jeremy and Madeline.”
At the mention of this, Fabian’s fingers tightened around the phone.
“You had your own intentions when you told me all of this. Did you think I’d believe that you were being kind?” Fabian retorted with displeasure.
“Just get to the point and tell me what your intentions are. I don’t want to hear from you again.”
Fabian made his stand clear.
A few seconds later, the man’s confident voice came through the line.
“I know Jeremy and Eveline are still in F Country.
What I’d like to know is, what’s Eveline’s condition right now?”
As the voice fell away, the air around Fabian went silent, and then, casually, Fabian said, “She’s doing well. She’s with her husband. They’re still searching for their daughter.”
“She’s doing well?” The man evidently felt suspicious. “How can she possibly be doing well?”
“From what I observed, she is fine. If you don’t believe me, you can always come by and have a look for yourself.”
Fabian responded nonchalantly.
After a brief silence, the man continued to ask, ” What about Jeremy? Do you think they’ll be returning to Glendale any time soon?”
“What do you think? ” Fabian threw the question back. “I’m sure you’re aware of their reason for coming to F Country. Do you think they’ll leave before finding their daughter?”
Upon hearing this, the man immediately felt immensely relieved.
“Fabian, you must remember not to let them find the girl Lilian. This is your best chance to avenge your brother Yorick.”
The man finally mentioned Yorick.
Fabian clenched his fists tightly. When Fabian regained his composure, the caller had hung up.
He turned around again to look at the peacefully dreaming Lilian, and his long eyebrows furrowed unwittingly.
After a moment of silent contemplation, Fabian suddenly picked up his phone to block the number that just called and simultaneously made a decision.
Earlier, Fabian had invited Evan, who was just leaving the bar, to come by and examine Lilian who just woke up.
After confirming that Lilian’s health indicators were generally stable, Fabian left the house feeling assured.
At the hotel, Jeremy had watched over Madeline for the entire night.
The first thing he did after waking up was wiping Madeline’s face and body as well as gently exercising her hands and feet.
Just as he finished stretching Madeline’s muscles, the doorbell rang.
Jeremy made sure to cover Madeline with a blanket before reaching for the door. When he opened the door, he was surprised to see Fabian.
“Your power in F Country seems comparable to your brother Yorick’s. You’re very informed on our movements.”
Jeremy spoke with implication.
Fabian, unbothered by what Jeremy had said, went straight to the point of his visit. “Is Eveline still unconscious?”
Jeremy’s expression darkened when he was asked about Madeline’s condition.
“Fabian, don’t worry about my wife. The most important thing you can do now is to return our daughter to us.”
The tone in Jeremy’s voice turned harsh. “Lilian has health problems, and her treatment cannot be delayed. If her condition worsens to the point where she can no longer be saved, all due to your personal vendetta, how do you intend to return my daughter to me?”
“ If that’s your concern, then I can assure you now that your daughter is safe.”
Fabian spoke unhurriedly, giving Jeremy a sense of assurance.
