Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1846
“Is it that young man named Adam?”
“Yes, that’s him. He won’t let Shirley look like this for long. He’ll heal her in the shortest possible time to make her look like the woman she once was.”
Carter was certain of this.
Camille felt relieved by his words. “Then I can anticipate my grandchild’s birth in peace.”
She smiled and unwittingly let out a soft sigh.
“In fact, if she hadn’t left without a word years ago, the two of you would have been married, and maybe you’d have had two or three children by now. I
don’t know what she was thinking back then.”
Carter listened to Camille’s mutterings; he shared similar questions in his mind and a trace of dissatisfaction in his heart.
However, he did not say anything else.
If he could hold onto her now, he could make up for the loss.
Ada, who had been listening to the entire conversation, soon after returned to her room angrily and gave a call to her mother.
Having heard the scenario, Ada’s mother pondered for a moment, then immediately came up with an idea.
After listening to her mother’s idea, Ada knew that it was a completely feasible idea, but she was hesitant to do it. She feared that Carter would learn about it in the future, and she would regret it then.
Upon reflection, though, her mother was right. The fewer the people who knew about it, the better.
That was why she would have to do it herself!
In the following days, Shirley devoted her time to studying the anti-toxoid test reagent daily.
However, every time she discovered Adam and Cathy’s circumstances, Carter would casually dismiss the topic.
Shirley was very worried about them, but she also knew that the development of the anti-toxoid test reagent could not be put off any further.
Back then, when she stayed at home, Adam had already admonished her sternly.
He had told her that Madeline had not regained her consciousness following the fourth stage of the poison.
If Madeline remained unconscious for much longer, her body would likely suffer further harm.
Shirley had already decided what to do when she gave Adam the formula for the anti-toxoid test reagent.
She had to turn back.
She must not make the same mistakes again. This morning, Shirley woke up as usual.
Ada, as usual, stood at a side with a forced smile on her face as she instructed the servants to help Shirley get out of bed.
After breakfast, Ada had even thoughtfully pushed Shirley toward the laboratory.
On the way, Ada, seemingly unable to resist it, asked Shirley, “Shirley, can I ask you a question?”
Shirley was not in the mood to beat around the bush with Ada, so Shirley bluntly said, “Tell me whatever you want to say. There’s no point in chatting.”
The corners of Ada’s lips twitched with dissatisfaction, then she chuckled and asked, “You actually love Carter a lot, don’t you?”
Shirley was taken aback by Ada’s question. After a moment of bewilderment, Shirley replied, “This is a personal matter. I do not need to share it with you.”
Although Shirley’s response was indifferent, Ada was not bothered by it; Ada smiled to herself instead.
At the laboratory entrance, Shirley went in alone; Ada was forbidden to enter.
Ada stood at the entrance, watching the laboratory doors closed slowly, then her lips curled into a triumphant grin. “Shirley, I know you’re very much in love with Carter. As I’ve said, I won’t allow myself to be mistreated like this. Just you wait. Something will happen soon, and you will break.”
