Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 861
Cathy noticed something amiss with Felipe’s expression when he said that.
However, when her brain registered what was going on and she was about to push him away, Felipe picked her up by the waist.
“What are you doing? Felipe!” Cathy struggled, but she could not win against Felipe in terms of strength.
A storm started brewing behind Felipe’s eyes when he was met with Cathy’s struggles.
She had never rejected him.
He threw her on the sofa furiously. The gentleness he once had was all gone.
Cathy frowned in pain and grabbed Felipe’s arms tightly.
She never expected that this man would do something like this to her.
Tears streamed down Cathy’s face as Felipe’s eyes darkened. Then, he pinched her alluring face. “Do you remember now? Hmm?”
Cathy closed her eyes and refused to look at this face that she still loved deeply.
She could not see the rage behind Felipe’s eyes. He was sure Cathy had lost all feelings for him.
“Look at me.” He forced her to open her eyes to look at him. His eyes were extremely dark. “Do you hate me for causing you to lose both your children?”
Jeremy stayed in the hospital for a whole day and was worried about Cathy who had not returned after a long while. Of course, he started to miss Madeline as well.
The moment Madeline left, he felt his wound hurting. He did not even have the mood to take his medication.
He did not know whether Madeline did the check-up or not. He was worried that the longer they delayed this, the worse her condition would become.
He did not want to think about it. He did not want to recall how she had vomited blood and gasped for air back then.
That image hurt him too much.
After Felipe got his fill, he eventually let Cathy leave.
Even after Cathy took a shower, she still felt unwell. The current Felipe was making her heart grow cold. He felt extremely foreign to her.
However, in order to not make Jeremy worry about her, she went back to the hospital room as if nothing happened.
When Jeremy saw her, he felt relieved. “Where did you go?”
“It’s been a long time since I came back, so I went for a walk.” Cathy forced out a smile on her face, but her heart was racing.
Felipe’s domineering actions were still replaying in her head. He was a completely different person and was not gentle anymore.
Jeremy was too caught up in missing Madeline, so he did not notice anything wrong with Cathy. He asked, “Cathy, I won’t go back to Glendale for the time being. Can you go back and look for a doctor named Adam Brown for me?”
Jeremy nodded. “Eveline has started showing the same symptoms as last time. She needs to have surgery as soon as possible. However, she insists on keeping the child, so Adam is the only person who can help me now.”
Cathy started worrying after she heard that. “I can go back now, but you—”
“I won’t go. I’ll be wherever Eveline is.” Jeremy’s gaze was firm.
Cathy felt envious at first, but when she thought about the man she loved, her entire body went cold.
Felipe was thinking about what he did to Cathy just now when someone told him about Cathy leaving.
When he figured that she might be doing this to run away from him, he felt a fire of rage burning in his heart.
He never showed his feelings on his face, but after everything that happened recently, he could not keep his calm composure anymore.
After the sky turned dark, Felipe came to Jeremy with a cold aura around his body.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 862
His elegant and handsome face was filled with dark clouds. “Jeremy, what did you do to Cathy? Why is she so obedient to you? Are you going to steal everything I want from me, be it my woman or career?”
Jeremy lay on the bed without even batting an eyelid. “Things that were stolen, be it people or items, will slip away sooner or later. Felipe, Cathy loved you deeply back then but you didn’t appreciate her.”
It was as if Felipe had heard a colossal joke. “Did you appreciate Eveline back then? Why is she still not willing to let a scumbag like you go after you almost caused her to lose her life?”
Jeremy widened his narrow eyes and looked at Felipe coldly. “We’re the same in that we’re both scumbags. However, at least I reflected. What about you? Did you ever feel an ounce of remorse after knowing Cathy killed herself for you? You didn’t. If you did, you would’ve stopped pestering my wife.”
“Your wife?” Felipe snorted. “Your wife is now in another man’s arms.”
Jeremy sat up abruptly, his movement pulling on his wound. However, he did not care. “Felipe, what did you say? What did you do to my wife?”
“I won’t do anything to Eveline. She’s the one who ran into another man’s arms and this person—”
“And this person is me?”
A man’s clear voice came from the door of the ward.
Jeremy looked over while furrowing his brows.
Fabian had his hands in his pockets, looking like an arrogant and hedonistic yuppie. “Let me introduce myself. I’m the second-in-command of Stygian Johnson Gang. As for who we are, well…” He looked at Felipe. “Whatever he’s doing, that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
Felipe’s face fell in displeasure. “Fabian, why are you here?”
“I want to take a look for myself at the man that cutie pie likes.” Fabian looked at Jeremy up and down without respect. “So-so. I think I have a bigger chance at winning.”
After he said all those provoking words, Fabian flipped his silver hair and peered at Felipe. “Mr. Whitman, there’s a commercial dinner party at Prosperity Hotel this weekend. Are you interested in talking business?”
After he finished saying that, he turned around. Then, after staying silent for a few seconds, Felipe followed after him.
Jeremy could not sit still anymore. He was too bothered by what Fabian said just now.
He could not get into contact with Madeline these few days. He did not have another way of getting a hold of her aside from looking for her in person.
However, when he dragged his wounded body to the door, the person he had been missing this whole time appeared in front of him.
“Go in.” Madeline grabbed his arm and helped him back to his room.
Jeremy could not describe how he was feeling at this comment. He sat down obediently according to Madeline’s wishes.
“You haven’t eaten, right?” Madeline opened the lunchbox she brought and slowly took out the food she prepared.
She knew it would be hard for Jeremy to use his hands, so she picked up the fork to feed him.
Jeremy chewed on the food while his eyes were on Madeline’s face the entire time.
“Linnie, you’re so good-looking.”
“Linnie, did you really make this yourself? I think I taste love in here.”
Madeline did not have anything to say to that. She had no idea why Jeremy would say this.
She did not know that she would get to hear something like this when two people were in love with each other.
After she helped Jeremy eat and take his medicine, she helped him lie down.
When he saw Madeline packing so that she could leave, Jeremy pulled her to his side. “Don’t go, Linnie. I don’t want to let you go.”
How rare. There was a hint of aggrieved childishness in his charming eyes. “I don’t know why you’re so cold to me. You said you only remarried me to get revenge on me. I can let all of those matters go, but I just want you to stay with me now.”
Madeline sighed softly after she heard that. “Jeremy, I know you’re troubled and upset that I purposely ignored you and was cold to you. But I did all that for a reason.”
Jeremy’s grip on Madeline’s hand tightened. “Tell me. Why?”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 863
Madeline could feel Jeremy pressing her. Hence, she grabbed his hand. “Jeremy, do you trust me?”
“I do.” He did not hesitate before answering her. There was a gentle look in his eyes. “But Linnie, let me share the load with you.”
Madeline told him after she felt his sincerity, “Jeremy, everything will be taken care of soon. You just have to know that the reason I was cold to you is that I have some troubles I need to keep a secret.”
Jeremy was confused. Then, he asked, “Linnie, why won’t you tell me the truth?”
“I don’t want to take the risk.” Madeline suppressed the urge to tell him that Lillian was still alive. “I can’t risk it.”
Jeremy did not dare ask again after looking at the determination in Madeline’s eyes.
He held Madeline’s hand and placed it next to his lips before kissing it. “It’s enough knowing that there’s another reason why you’ve been ignoring me and giving me the cold shoulder.”
“When you find out, you’ll be ecstatic.” Madeline smiled.
She believed that if Jeremy knew that their daughter was still alive, he would be over the moon.
Even though Lillian had never called him ‘Daddy’ before and she did not know that he was her real father, to Jeremy, it was already extremely meaningful.
“I think I’m already ecstatic now.” He smiled and pulled Madeline into his arms to let her lean against his chest. “Linnie, I was so scared that you’ll hate me.”
He still had remaining fear in his heart. Then, he caressed her cheek with his fingers before they lay down together.
On the tiny bed, he was lying on his side as he enveloped Madeline into his warm embrace.
“Linnie, what’s going on with that Fabian Johnson guy?” he asked.
Madeline told Jeremy everything she knew without missing any details.
Jeremy immediately knew what was going on. “So he was saying that to purposely steer Felipe away? Why is he helping you?”
“Because we have a deal.”
“A deal?” Felipe looked suspicious. “Are you sure someone like him will keep his promise?”
“He looks frivolous, but at the end of the day, he’s still a businessman. Businessmen are all about money.” Madeline knew what she was doing, but when she saw Jeremy still feeling suspicious, she lifted her hand and touched his furrowed brows. “Jeremy, trust me.”
Jeremy was still contemplating. However, at this moment, his attention and gaze were on Madeline’s body.
The bed was small and they were very close to each other. It was as if they could hear each other’s heartbeat in the silence.
“Linnie, I love the way you say my name. Can you say my name again?”
Madeline was stunned when Jeremy made such a request. Then, she said, “Jeremy.”
“How nice.” Jeremy curled his lips and touched Madeline’s cheek. He could feel tears stinging the corners of his eyes.
“When you called my name back then, I kept pretending that I didn’t hear you. I hate myself so much.”
He looked down at her face. Her bangs and long hair were intertwining together.
“My wife is so beautiful and so smart. Plus, she’s so gentle and kind too. Why did I keep pretending to not see those things?”
“Do you see them now?” Madeline looked into the man’s charming eyes.
“I do, and I’m the only one who can.” He did not want her best qualities to fall into the eyes of other men. He wanted to keep them all to himself.
Madeline smiled. “Jeremy, I thought I was the luckiest and happiest woman in the world when I married you. Even though you didn’t look too happy when we got married, I was still ecstatic.
“I didn’t expect that you were the one who asked for the wedding from Grandpa.”
“Because I didn’t want any man to steal you away before I could.”
He told her what he was truly feeling and made a promise to her.
“Linnie, you’ll be the luckiest woman in the world. From now on, I’ll give you the happiness you want.”
“I’ll wait. I’ll wait for you to make me happy.” Madeline held his hand, their fingers intertwining.
Jeremy lowered his head to kiss Madeline’s forehead before looking at her with love in his eyes. Finally, he pressed his lips against hers.
Madeline was worried that she would hurt Jeremy, so she did not push him away.
She closed her eyes and kissed him back somewhat shakily. Their breaths intertwined in the air. Madeline was getting pulled deeper into Jeremy’s embrace.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 864
Madeline wanted to show the man a good time after knowing about all the hardships he went through, but it was as if he had started to lose control.
Madeline opened her eyes and grabbed his hand. “We still have time, so let’s not do this now.”
Jeremy could not control himself, but he could not go against Madeline’s wishes either. Therefore, he could only hold her and go to sleep.
Felipe did not know Madeline was in Jeremy’s room.
He thought Madeline was still at Fabian’s place.
Felipe felt an extreme repulsion toward that man.
It was not just because Madeline was siding with Fabian, but it was also because Cathy was disfigured by the Stygian Johnsons.
He pulled open his drawer and took out an album.
The album was filled with Cathy’s photos.
It was all photos of when he first sponsored her until the day she graduated. All of her photos were kept in this album.
Cathy looked sweet and naive, giving others the impression of a good girl. However, her personality was the complete opposite.
Due to her personality, she never hid her feelings toward Felipe.
Felipe looked at the girl who was beaming in the photo and felt himself clenching his fists.
They ruined such a beautiful and innocent face, hence he could not let this go just like that.
A cold murderous aura appeared on his handsome face.
‘I’ll make them pay dearly for making you bleed.’
Felipe found Fabian’s brother, Yorick Johnson. This man was the same as Felipe as he also dabbled in both the good and evil sides. Compared to Felipe’s gentle appearance, this man was more savage.
Felipe voluntarily handed one of his business deals in the black market and also a business deal that was worth over 100 million over to the Stygian Johnsons. However, the only condition was that they had to hand the person who disfigured Cathy to him.
These conditions were too lucrative, and Yorick was a businessman who dabbled with the dark side. As such, he agreed to this deal immediately.
The thug who was handed over was standing in front of Felipe while shivering in terror.
Felipe held the loaded gun in his hand emotionlessly. Then, he shot both of the thug’s legs directly.
The thug wailed in pain, his face immediately flushing white as blood poured from his wounds.
However, Felipe was unperturbed. He personally disfigured the thug using the same methods he had used on Cathy previously.
After doing this, his angry heart finally received some solace.
Yorick was shocked when he saw Felipe like that.
Perhaps Felipe really did care about his sponsored sister unlike what the outsiders said.
It was obvious that he cared deeply about her as seen from the few hundred million that he spent just to release his anger.
Madeline stayed the night in Jeremy’s room.
That entire night, the man held her close to him. He would also kiss her occasionally and stick to her like glue.
The next day, Madeline ate breakfast with Jeremy. When she was about to leave, she felt a pang of pain in her lower abdomen. She thought it was related to her pregnancy, then she remembered how Jeremy kept insisting on having her abort the child.
Jeremy walked over and held her to ask for a kiss. However, he saw a solemn expression on her face.
“Linnie, what’s wrong?”
“Jeremy, are you hiding something from me?” Madeline finally realized something was amiss. “Is something wrong with my body? Is it in such bad condition that I can’t get pregnant anymore?”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 865
Jeremy knew he could not hide from her anymore. Even so, he did not nod. On the contrary, he explained softly, “Linnie, it’s not as bad as you think. It’s just that…”
“You’re having symptoms of a relapse.” Jeremy found those words extremely difficult to say.
Madeline remembered how she got sick when she had Jackson.
The pain still felt fresh now that she thought about it.
She touched her stomach gently and finally understood why Jeremy had been insisting on having her abort the child.
“Linnie, don’t be too pessimistic. I asked the doctor and as long as you have the surgery, you’ll be fine. There will be a near 100 percent chance of recovery as well.”
He held her hand and felt remorseful. There was a forced smile on his handsome face.
“Linnie, actually… Actually, it’s fine even if we only have Jackson. I don’t want to see you suffer again. The doctor said maybe it’s the condition of your body, so as long as you don’t get pregnant, you won’t have this problem again.”
When Madeline heard that, she lifted her head to look at him.
“Actually, you want this child too, right?”
Jeremy’s eyes were firm and there was no room for discussion in his voice when he said, “I just want you to be healthy.”
“I got it. I promise you that I will be.” Madeline looked into his eyes and smiled.
“Linnie, if that’s the case, then we shall arrange for surgery as soon as possible.”
“Okay.” Madeline agreed.
Madeline’s straightforwardness made Jeremy feel relieved. However, he was still slightly hesitant.
He felt that Madeline only answered him so quickly to make him stop worrying about her.
However, Madeline soon proved that she was not lying to him because she really went on with the surgery.
With Fabian distracting Felipe, he had no idea that Madeline was undergoing an abortion.
Madeline was back on the operating table again. She touched the bump on her stomach numbly and remembered the excitement in Jeremy’s eyes.
‘He wants this child, right?
Madeline searched deep in her heart and found that she was reluctant as well.
Jeremy was sitting nervously outside the operating theatre.
He hoped that he was standing outside the delivery room instead. He hoped that after this, the doctor would come out with good news and tell him that the mother and child were safe.
He hoped that he was not sending his beloved woman for surgery and bidding farewell to his child.
Jeremy closed his eyes slowly as despair and sadness overwhelmed him.
At this moment, the door of the operating theatre swung open.
Jeremy lifted his head and saw Madeline walking over to him. “Linnie?’
Madeline smiled at the worried man in front of her. “Jeremy, I want this child.”
“No. You can’t risk your life!” Jeremy’s expression was grim. “I can’t lose you again.”
He furrowed his brows and touched Madeline’s face worriedly. “Linnie, listen to me, okay?”
“If this is our last child, then I will do my best to bring it to the world.” Madeline insisted. “Jeremy, I know you desperately want this child, right?”
“But I want you more. I want you to be safe and healthy, do you understand?” Jeremy held Madeline while his heart shattered into pieces. His deep and hoarse sobs traveled into her ears. “Eveline, I can’t handle another possibility of losing you.”
Madeline felt Jeremy’s care and concern toward her. She patted his shoulder and got out of his embrace.
“You don’t have to worry about me. I will be fine because I know someone who can help me.”
“Are you talking about Adam?”
Jeremy’s question surprised Madeline.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 866
When she had Jackson back then, her health was worse than it was now. When she was wrongfully incarcerated, she almost could not keep her child and almost died in prison.
However, Daniel sent her some pills and these pills helped her safely deliver Jackson.
Plus, she also struggled whilst at death’s door for some time.
However, she was curious about what Jeremy thought of Adam.
At this moment, Cathy returned.
She handed them the pills she got from Adam.
There were a few pills in the small and transparent bottle.
When Madeline saw this, she recognized them immediately. “These pills…”
“I knew you wouldn’t agree to the abortion, so I contacted Adam way before.”
Jeremy’s answer solved Madeline’s curiosity.
However, she still did not understand. “How did you know that I survived my sickness because of Adam’s pills back then?”
Jeremy smiled, his eyes filled with self-blame. “Even though I’m slow to everything, I still tried my best to find out everything about you after, Linnie.”
Madeline finally understood. However, what touched her the most was how Jeremy was able to guess her final decision.
He knew her so well.
“Cathy, thank you for running errands for me and Jeremy.” Madeline thanked her sincerely. Then, when she looked at her face, she felt heartbroken.
Even though this face was stunning, it was nothing compared to her radiant and sweet smile back then.
Jeremy obeyed Madeline’s wishes and continued to recover in the hospital. After Cathy sent Madeline away, Felipe arrived.
The face that she dreamed about and longed for day and night was now like a nightmare. The only thing she wanted to do was hide from this man.
Felipe spotted Cathy running away when she saw him, and immediately, his face fell.
He chased up to her. Then, he saw her closing the door of the hospital room before turning around to face him. “Mr. Whitman, please don’t disturb my fiancé.”
She stopped Felipe at the door with a serious expression on her face.
Felipe felt a lump in his heart, yet he smiled. However, his smile looked diabolical. “Does your fiancé know about you running back into my arms?”
There was a hint of loss in Cathy’s eyes. “Felipe, I feel nothing toward you anymore. You forced me that day.”
“I did force you that day, but what about before? Did I also force you those two times you got pregnant?”
“Did you not?” Cathy’s gaze was sharp. “You’ve never cared about how I feel.”
Felipe pressed his lips into a tight line when faced with her accusations.
Looking at those hostile eyes, he clenched his fists that were inside his pockets.
“Cathy, do you know what’ll happen to you if you betray me?”
Cathy looked into his devious eyes bravely. “Kill me if you have the guts.”
Felipe was agitated with her determination. “I won’t kill you, but I’ll make you wish that you’re dead.”
He displayed a thought-provoking smirk as his possessive gaze stared right into Cathy’s panicking eyes.
“You care about Jeremy now, huh?”
Cathy shook her head, and there was a worried look on her face. “What are you trying to do to him again? Felipe, don’t do anything stupid.”
“If you don’t want me to do something stupid, it all depends on what you’ll do next.”
He grabbed her chin and moved his lips closer to her. “Tonight at seven o’clock, come to the place where we had our fun two days ago. If you don’t come, my men will appear in Jeremy’s room. Remember that.”
His tone was flat, but it was filled with warning.
Cathy clenched her fists. In the end, she unclenched them lifelessly.
At seven o’clock, she appeared in Felipe’s study on time. However, the man was nowhere to be seen.
Cathy glanced around the room mindlessly when something on the desk attracted her attention.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 867
When she walked over to take a closer look at it, the door of the study opened.
When he saw Cathy here on time, he curled the corners of his lips in satisfaction.
Cathy was stunned by his soft smile and gentle look. However, when she thought about the two children she lost, she felt her heart growing cold again.
“I guess you’re willing to do anything for Jeremy now,” Felipe said profoundly, walking in front of Cathy.
Cathy turned her face away in disgust. “Jeremy is my fiancé, so of course I’m willing to do everything for him.”
Felipe’s smile disappeared. He did not want to hear Cathy telling him that she was concerned about another man.
“Since you care about him so much, then from now on, please me. If not, don’t even expect him to leave F Country safely.”
The threats that fell into Cathy’s ears were like the words of a devil. Once again, they crushed her heart.
Cathy did not know how much time had passed. When she woke up, there was no one next to her, but she could hear the sound of the shower running coming from the bathroom.
As she turned, she noticed that Felipe’s scent still lingered in the air.
It was the smell that she was obsessed with back then.
However, everything was different now.
She got up and put on her clothes before ordering some take-out.
Felipe was taking a shower inside his bathroom, but his brows were furrowed together this entire time.
He did not know why he did that to Cathy. He just knew that he did not want to see her concerned about Jeremy and ignoring him.
He would not allow a woman who was so in love with him back then to betray him for another man.
He put away the drenched hairband on his wrist and walked out in a bathrobe.
When he walked back into the bedroom, he saw Cathy opening the take-out box. She then took out a box of pills before taking out one.
When Felipe saw this, something clicked in his brain and he rushed in front of Cathy. Then, he grabbed her hand that was holding the pill.
Cathy was taken aback, and the pill fell on the floor.
Felipe took the box and looked at it. At this moment, his eyes were red from either the shower or his emotions. “What are you doing?” he asked while grabbing her hand tightly.
Cathy looked at him coldly and said nonchalantly, “Birth control. Can’t you see?”
Her cold attitude made Felipe’s breath hitch. “How dare you eat this?”
“Why not? Should I let you kill another one of my children just like the previous two times?”
“…” Felipe was shocked when he heard that.
Cathy pushed his hand away and popped one of the pills into her mouth.
Felipe’s heart sank when he saw her determination.
He grabbed Cathy’s head and pressed his lips against hers.
Cathy was shocked. When she finally came back to her senses and wanted to struggle, Felipe had already taken out the pill that she almost swallowed.
He stared at her with his crimson eyes, and his heart was beating erratically. “Don’t you resent me for killing your child? I’m now giving you a chance to get pregnant and become a mother!”
He roared, his breathing becoming erratic.
Cathy looked at his angry eyes with no fear. “Do you think I’ll still have your child? Do you think I’m so stupid that I’ll miscarry three times for a man like you? Felipe Whitman, I have no feelings for you anymore!”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 868
“My love and obsession for you went away the moment my two children left my body.”
“I regret falling in love with a man like you at first sight.”
Felipe scoffed. “You’re done regretting. Cathy, don’t even think of escaping from the palm of my hand as long as you live. You belong to me forever.”
His possessive eyes enveloped her and completely overwhelmed Cathy’s gaze that was filled with resistance.
In the next few days, Jeremy’s wounds started to recover slowly, but there was still a long way to go until he had a full recovery.
In these few days, Madeline would come to see him, eat with him, and feed him his medicine.
Jeremy told her that Felipe had not come and caused trouble for him in these few days. Those bodyguards had stopped crowding the door as well.
Madeline sensed that something was amiss. She knew Felipe would not let Jeremy off the hook so easily, so she figured there had to be something behind this.
Cathy listened at one side and did not say anything.
These few days, Cathy would appear in front of Felipe according to his wishes and stay the night with him. Then, she would go to the hospital as if nothing had happened.
She wanted to numb her thoughts. She wanted to tell herself that she was only doing this to help Jeremy.
However, whenever Felipe kissed her or got close to her, her body would start to accept him.
She felt that she was pathetic and lamentable. In addition to that, she was not worthy of pity.
How could she still have a soft spot for a man like him?
Felipe was focusing all his attention on Cathy this whole time, so he forgot that Madeline was still staying with Fabian.
When Felipe saw Madeline appearing with Fabian at the commercial dinner party during the weekend, he remembered there was something urgent he needed to take care of.
Madeline lifted her wine glass and smiled at the man who was walking over to her.
Felipe looked at her gorgeous face, and his heart started slowing down for some reason. “Eveline, are you going to abandon Jeremy? Are you staying with this man just so you can avoid me?”
“I feel much safer staying with him than with you.”
“Really?” Fabian approached her with a frivolous smile. “If that’s the case, then I shall put in more effort to pursue you.”
Felipe peered at Fabian coldly. Then, he focused his attention on Madeline again. “Eveline, don’t forget that you’re still carrying my child. Plus, I think you still remember Lillian, right?”
Madeline knew Felipe would threaten her with Lillian.
However, after tonight, Lillian would not be his bargaining chip anymore.
“Felipe, if you can do it, then do it. I don’t want to live a life where I have to fear everything again.”
Madeline’s nonchalant attitude shocked Felipe. “Do you know what you’re talking about? Lillian is Jeremy’s daughter who you gave birth to after so many challenges. Can you really ignore her just like this?”
“I don’t have a choice even if I want to care about her, right?” Madeline smiled and sighed helplessly. “I know you want to use Lillian to separate me and Jeremy or even get him into danger, so why don’t I just play along with you? If something happens to Lillian, then I guess my fate with Lillian will have to come to an end.”
Felipe watched in disbelief as Madeline said that.
However, he then realized Madeline was only saying that on purpose. As such, he laughed. “Do you think I don’t know that you’re only saying that to make me lower my guard? Eveline, you’re smart, but I won’t fall for it.”
“I don’t have the time to play with you,” Madeline said indifferently, “Felipe, let me tell you, if I have to choose between Lillian and Jeremy, I’ll choose Jeremy. Plus, our third child will be born in a few months. I don’t want my child to not have a father when it’s born.”
Felipe’s eyes went straight to her stomach when he heard that. Then, his eyes darkened. “Your child with him?”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 869
Madeline looked at him proudly, “Yes, my and Jeremy’s child.”
Felipe’s face darkened immediately. He wanted to know more about this when Madeline said irrefutably, “Felipe, the child in my stomach has nothing to do with you. You thought we did something that night, but actually, you were just hallucinating because of the aromatherapy kit I made especially for you.
“You were just dreaming. It was just a dream that you wanted to happen.”
Felipe believed Madeline’s skills in blending perfumes, but this truth was too much for him.
All this while, he believed that Madeline was carrying his child. He thought he finally had her. He never imagined that the night they spent together was nothing more than a dream.
He felt pathetic, but when he thought about it, he did have a dream that night. In that dream, the woman who was entangled with him was Cathy.
“Felipe, from now on, I won’t be threatened by you. If you dare to ask someone to hurt Jeremy, I’ll hand the video to the police myself. I will destroy everything you’ve built and ruin your reputation.”
Madeline’s gaze was sharp, showing her determination and imposing manner.
Felipe looked into those piercing eyes and turned around furiously.
Fabian appeared next to Madeline. “You’re so bold, darling. This is my first time seeing a woman keeping Felipe under control.”
However, Madeline did not have the mood to joke around with him. “Have your men arrived?”
“Don’t worry. Everything’s set in place. Your daughter will come back to you safe and sound.” Fabian swirled the wine in his glass. “However, I want something from you in exchange.”
He got close to Madeline and muttered.
“I don’t want money, but I want the video you mentioned just now.”
That video was strong evidence that proved Felipe was involved in illegal trades.
If the police got a hold of it, then not only Felipe would be captured, but he would also face a huge loss.
Madeline knew the value and the importance of the video. However, she would not give it to Fabian just like this. “I don’t like dealing with people who go back on their promises. You won’t disappoint me, right, Mr. Johnson?”
Fabian changed the subject and lifted his eyebrow slyly. “I was just joking with you. Don’t worry, I won’t disappoint you.”
Even though she was not close with Fabian, Madeline knew this improper man-child would be much more reliable than Felipe.
At this moment, the thing that worried her the most was Lillian’s safety.
She did not know whether the child would be safely brought back by Fabian’s men.
Felipe left the hotel with the flames of rage burning in his chest. He could not accept the fact that the woman he loved had been fooling him this whole time.
“Eveline, I think you’ve decided to be my rival.” Felipe took out the colorful shell from his pocket as a radiant smile appeared in his head.
He held the shell tightly, feeling a hint of reluctance in his heart.
However, it seemed that his heart would not race anymore.
“Eveline, if you truly want to go back to Jeremy, then I won’t hesitate to destroy everything about him.
“If I can’t get what I want, then he can’t have it as well!”
His eyes darkened, and when he was about to step on the accelerator, he received a phone call from his men.
He picked up the phone and heard the man report to him frantically, “Mr. Whitman, the security system of the outer courtyard has been tampered with.”
Felipe immediately realized something. “Where’s Lilian?”
The man on the other side of the phone ran to Lillian’s bedroom. After he opened the door, there was no one in there.
“Miss Lillian is gone!”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 870
Felipe understood immediately after he heard that.
‘Eveline, so this is why you’re siding with Fabian.
‘You’re a woman of beauty and wits indeed.
‘However, if you think you can reunite with your family like this, you’re still too naive.
‘Perhaps it’s time you know what kind of person I really am.’
Cathy looked at the time and went to the manor according to the time set by Felipe.
However, when she turned around, she saw Felipe charging over to her.
His face gave off chills, and cold air was emitting from his body. It was obvious he was not in a good mood.
Cathy could sense that Felipe was here to cause trouble for Jeremy. As such, she blocked the door.
“What are you doing here? You said as long as I appear in the manor on time every night that you won’t come to cause trouble for Jeremy.” Cathy reminded him in a small voice. She was worried that Jeremy would overhear them.
Felipe scoffed nonchalantly. “You think too highly of yourself. Cathy, do you think you’re capable of protecting Jeremy?” he said, pushing Cathy away without even caring about how she felt.
“Felipe!” Cathy grabbed him. The last ounce of longing in her eyes was going to be overpowered by the disappointment she was feeling. “Felipe, don’t make me look down on you.”
However, Felipe was still looking at her in disdain. “Do you think I care about what you think of me? Cathy, I don’t. Even when I knew you killed yourself for me, I didn’t feel heartbroken nor did I pity you. The only person I care about is Eveline.”
The words coming out of his lips felt like glass shards that were slicing against Cathy’s heart mercilessly.
Cathy was dumbfounded as Felipe pushed her away. She fell against the wall at one side, her heart aching excruciatingly.
‘I guess I won’t elicit an ounce of emotion from you even after I die.
‘Felipe, the more I care about you, the more you don’t care about me.
‘I finally understand…’
Jeremy was undergoing physiotherapy when he saw Felipe. He was surprised, but at the same time, he did not think this was strange.
Felipe would come to cause trouble for him sooner or later.
“You finally know how you want to get rid of me?” Jeremy asked flatly, his face looking as calm as always. “Or perhaps you can shoot me like how you did before.”
Felipe could not stand it when Jeremy was confident and unruffled.
“I didn’t come here to cause trouble for you today. On the contrary, I’m here to tell you good news.”
Jeremy knew Felipe would not be so kind to him, so he exposed him instantly. “You can tell me about your evil plans. Don’t beat around the bush, Felipe. If you’re a man, you’ll direct everything at me and not at my woman.”
“Okay, I’ll direct it at you then.” Felipe looked at Jeremy in admiration. Then, a sinister smirk appeared on his face. “Do you remember what I said to you when we were in the warehouse at Third Street? I told you I’ll give you an unexpected gift before you died.”
Jeremy thought back, and indeed, Felipe had said something like that.
“Jeremy, you should’ve accepted it back then, because you would’ve felt that it was worth it even if you died after receiving the gift.”
When he said that, Felipe took out his phone and turned the screen to Jeremy. Then, he towered over Jeremy like an emperor to watch the gradual changes in his expression.
Jeremy thought Felipe was just bluffing. However, he saw something unbelievable on Felipe’s phone.
