Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1869
Upon hearing that, Carter burst out laughing, but the smile on his face seemed spine-chilling.
“Of course, I believe you.”
“Really?” Ada looked expectantly at Carter who had just said he believed her.
However, in the next second, Carter’s gaze darkened.
“I believe in myself. I believe that someone like you would indeed do something like that.”
“ ” Ada’s widened as she felt her heartbeat grew more erratic. Presently, Carter’s eyes gaze bore a hint of ruthless murderous intent.
He cared about Shirley, and he cared about her very particularly. That was why he now believed what Madeline had said.
When Ada saw Carter closing in on her, one step at a time, Ada felt as though her heart would leap out of her mouth.
If she admitted to this, she knew what would happen to her.
However, if she did not, what other excuses could she find…
Just as she was still silently coming up with an excuse in her heart, Carter had already forced her to a dead-end. She could no longer back away.
“Carter. Carter, listen to me. It’s not like what Eveline said. I didn’t set the fire. Adam and Cathy’s deaths have nothing to do with me. Carter, I… Ugh
Before Ada could continue, Carter suddenly reached out his hand and grabbed Ada’s neck.
Ada’s eyes widened immediately. Pained, she opened her mouth to cough, but she could not make a sound.
“You’re really something else,” Carter said sarcastically. His gaze looked calm but there was a hint of austere chill in them. “Do you think that, if Shirley were to never get better, I’d set my heart on a woman like you? Do you think you’re worthy? You don’t even have the right to call me by my name.”
When Ada heard Carter’s disdainful statements, her eyes, as well as her face, reddened. It was unclear if it was due to Carter’s words or due to her difficulty breathing.
Carter did not loosen his grip because of Ada’s tears and pain but increased his grip instead.
Madeline, who was watching them from one side, seemed to see Jeremy’s shadow in Carter at that moment.
It was also at that moment when Madeline truly believed that Carter had genuine feelings for Shirley.
The level of concern a man had toward a woman could determine whether he would do something like this.
Ada had clearly been caught red-handed, and she also verified Carter’s relationship with Shirley.
“Carter, let go.” Camille walked over to talk Carter down. Although she, too, despised Ada, Camille was much calmer than Carter. “If you choked her to death, Shirley’s legs and face still won’t improve. Adam and Cathy won’t come back to life either.”
“Then I’ll bury her next to them.” Carter’s gaze darkened and the shadowy chill enveloped Ada.
Ada opened her mouth, still intending to explain herself, but she could not utter a single word. There was only a continuous stream of tears falling out of the corners of her eyes.
Camille, frustrated at the sight, reached out her hand and grabbed Carter’s hand. “Carter, listen to me, let her go first.”
Carter was annoyed but for Camille’s sake, he finally let go of his hand.
However, he did not merely let go. He threw Ada out fiercely. Ada crashed against the cabinet, then fell onto the floor, and let out an agonizing yelp.
