Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1853
Shirley saw a car drive through the entrance. She was about to speak when she heard footsteps approaching from behind her.
Looking sideways, Jeremy’s tall and slender silhouette came into sight.
Shirley’s despairing eyes lit up with a glimmer of hope.
She adjusted the angle of her wheelchair and slowly turned to face Jeremy.
With an umbrella in hand, Jeremy’s handsome appearance was accompanied by a sense of coldness as he walked directly up to Shirley.
Without beating around the bush, he asked, “Are you really here to deliver the anti-toxoid test reagent for AXP6g?”
Shirley looked at Jeremy and nodded. However, she was uncertain if she had spent too much time in the rain. Coupled with Adam and Cathy’s deaths, her whole body was feeling unwell.
Despite that, she lifted her arm with all her effort and held out the anti-toxoid test reagent to Jeremy.
“A complete anti-toxoid test reagent wasn’t available previously because Carter was the only one who had access to one of the ingredients.”
As Shirley explained, her hand that held the anti- toxoid test reagent began to tremble involuntarily.
Gradually, she began to recognize the cause of her problem.
Her body had also been injected with the AXP6g poison, and these feelings she was experiencing were evidently the symptoms of the fourth stage flaring up.
Jeremy peered at the anti-toxoid test reagent in Shirley’s trembling hand. There were still traces of doubt in his heart.
“Why should I believe you?” He coldly stared at Shirley, who was becoming paler with each passing moment.
Shirley did not mind Jeremy’s suspicion. She understood. She knew that this was the consequence of all her wicked deeds.
She clenched her fists and took a deep breath of cold air, forcing herself to endure the increasing intensity of pain.
“You certainly don’t have to trust me. You just have to trust Adam.”
Shirley began panting heavily.
“Eveline is still unconscious now, right? Take this and inject her with it quickly. At most, she’ll need eight hours, then she’ll wake. Take it, quickly.”
Shirley tried her best to hand the anti-toxoid test reagent over to Jeremy, but he still seemed skeptical.
“Jeremy, don’t hesitate any longer. Take it! Delaying it could cause variations. You don’t want Eveline to remain a sleeping beauty forever, right?”
As Shirley’s words resonated, Jeremy’s eyebrows twitched, and melancholy swept across his face.
In fact, he wished Madeline would wake up as soon as possible. He was anxious about it, more than anyone else.
Shirley’s kind gesture of delivering the anti-toxoid test reagent all of the sudden, however, had certainly left him with doubt.
Jeremy pondered for a few seconds before pulling out his mobile phone, preparing to call Adam.
When Shirley saw Jeremy’s actions, she quickly guessed his intention.
Her eyes turned red again, but she forced herself to suppress this painful emotion before speaking.
“Your calls won’t get through to his phone. Jeremy, you don’t have to trust me, but you must trust Adam. Stop dithering. Otherwise, unpredictable things might happen.”
When Jeremy heard the engaged tone which signified that no one answered on the other end of the line, he disconnected the call.
Karen ran out hastily at that moment, holding an umbrella. She asked worriedly.
“Jeremy, what’s the matter? Is Eveline asleep or sick? Why can’t we wake her up at all?”
Hearing those words, Shirley clenched her trembling hands and gritted her teeth. “Jeremy, take it quickly!”
She raised her voice, knowing that she might not be able to hold on for much longer.
“Eveline needs this vial of anti-toxoid test reagent now. There’s an ingredient in the anti-toxoid test reagent that is extremely rare. If you don’t take this vial now, Eveline would have no hope of ever waking up!”
“What?! What did you say?! ” Karen was shaken by Shirley’s words.
