Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1331-1340

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1331
Old Master Whitman wondered why Karen would suddenly ask about this. He furrowed his gray eyebrows. “Where did you learn about this?”

Infuriated, Karen told Old Master Whitman that she just came back from Jones Manor. “The Jones family is unreasonable. Look at what Eveline has become. How dare they say we deserve it?!”

“We deserve it? Did the Jones family say that?” Old Master Whitman’s face darkened. He was visibly displeased.

Karen nodded. “How could I joke about something like that? There were a lot of reporters outside and they all heard it.”

Old Master Whitman’s brows furrowed when he heard that. Just as he was about to say something, Jeremy’s voice rang.

“In that case, the media will break the story online soon.”

“Jeremy.” Karen quickly got up and walked over to Jeremy, her eyes full of confusion. “You know about this? What the hell is going on? Why do I have no idea that there’s bad blood between the Whitman family and the Jones family? What do the Whitman family have to do with their old man’s death?” Karen asked curiously, but she saw Madeline coming down the stairs just as she finished speaking.

“Hey,” Madeline called out to Jeremy.

Jeremy looked back and quickly walked to Madeline’s side.

“Didn’t you say you were going to sleep? Why are you up?” His tone was soft, and even his eyes were warm like the spring breeze.

Madeline stared intently into Jeremy’s deep eyes. “When will you take me to Jeremy? You’re not fooling me, are you?”

“Eveline,” Karen called out to Madeline and walked up to her. She pointed to Jeremy and replied assertively, “Eveline, he’s Jeremy, the man you love the most throughout the years.”

Madeline sized up Jeremy’s stunning beauty and nodded. “He does look like Jeremy.”

Karen was a little helpless when she heard the words and patiently stressed again. “No, he’s Jeremy.”

Madeline did not seem to like what Karen was saying. She furrowed her eyebrows and grabbed Jeremy’s sleeve. “I don’t want to stay here. Take me to Jeremy.”

“Eveline, Jeremy’s right here—”

“Stop,” Jeremy interrupted Karen and gently took Madeline’s hand as he spoke softly, “Alright, I’ll take you to him right now.”

“Okay!” A smile then appeared on Madeline’s face.

She ignored Karen and Old Master Whitman. She was like an innocent child, letting Jeremy lead her out the door.

“How did Ryan put Eveline in this situation? She doesn’t recognize Jeremy when he’s right in front of her. I wonder what Ryan did to Eveline?” Karen was exasperated and worried.

She grumbled a little before walking back to Old Master Whitman. “Dad, tell me what happened.”

Old Master Whitman did not want to go into details about what happened back then, but he did not want his family to make wild speculations, so he told her what happened in detail…

April Hill.

Jeremy brought Madeline to the place where they fell in love at first sight.

Madeline looked around after getting out of the car. After looking around, she asked impatiently, “Why did you bring me here? Where’s Jeremy?”

“He’ll be here to take you home soon. Just wait,” said Jeremy as he quietly grabbed the wig and contact lens. “Wait here for me while I go to the restroom.”

Madeline grabbed Jeremy’s hand as he turned to leave. There was a hint of worry in her big, clear eyes.

“Are you going to leave me alone for a long time like what Jeremy did?”

Jeremy felt a pang in his heart and felt something bitter running through it.

“You don’t want me to leave?” he asked, smiling.

Madeline’s hand stiffened as she held Jeremy’s palm. Her cheeks seemed to have been flushed by the warm sun. “You can leave. I just want to see Jeremy.”

“Will you miss me if your Jeremy comes back and I’m gone?”

Madeline’s expression changed when she heard this. She asked nervously, “Are you going to disappear?”

The bitterness in Jeremy’s heart was dispersed by the sweetness he felt when he saw how much she cared, but soon, he felt that he was going too far.

‘Why would I make her choose? Aren’t I just giving her trouble by doing this?’

Jeremy gave Madeline a reassuring reply, “No. I’ll always be by your side.”

Madeline let go of his hand in relief, and with a smile, he turned to a nearby restroom to change his appearance.

It was late summer. There were not many people at the beach. Madeline stood by the car alone, looking at the blue sea. Many beautiful images recurred to her mind.

However, as she looked on, her beautiful eyes caught sight of a figure that made her shudder reflexively.

The man was wearing a black mask and cap. He merely looked at her with his long, narrow eyes.

Looking into those eyes, the smile on Madeline’s face faded. Even the hint of light sparking in her eyes dimmed.

She could not help clenching her fingers as she looked more and more nervous.

“Jeremy,” Madeline muttered as she turned around immediately. Subconsciously, she walked quickly in the direction Jeremy had just left.

Seeing that Madeline had turned to run, the man pushed his cap down and sped toward her.

“Eveline.”

A nightmare-like voice rang behind Madeline.

Madeline’s eyes widened in horror. Suddenly she felt weak, and her feet stopped reflexively.

She heard familiar footsteps approaching behind her. Then, she felt an oppressive dark shadow creeping over her. Endless darkness drowned the light in front of her eyes.

Jeremy came out of the restroom and saw a figure approaching Madeline.

He gave that person a good look and a storm immediately raged in his eyes!

“Ryan!”

Jeremy shouted to stop him. He dashed toward Madeline like lightning as Ryan walked up behind her to take her away.

To his surprise, Madeline stood still with her eyes full of panic.

“Linnie, come to me!” He reminded Madeline.

Madeline came back to her senses and immediately looked up at Jeremy, her eyes lighting up once again.

“Jeremy!”

Seeing that he was exposed, Ryan’s eyes darkened coldly. He immediately lunged at Madeline.

However, Jeremy would never give Ryan a chance like that. As Madeline ran toward him, he pulled her into his arms by grabbing her. He then gently comforted her.

“Don’t be afraid, Linnie. I’m here.”

Madeline threw herself into Jeremy’s arms. She closed her eyes and was in search of a long-lost sense of security. “Jeremy, I finally found you.”

Jeremy’s heart clenched a little. ‘Sure enough, Linnie recognized me as soon as she saw my dark hair and normal eye color.’

He thought to himself and tightened his arms.

Ryan frowned and was rather displeased when he saw Madeline in Jeremy’s arms, but he instantly turned around to flee.

Jeremy dragged Madeline to the car and said, “Linnie, wait here for me. Don’t go anywhere. This time, I’m going to bring this b*stard to justice!”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1333
Jeremy settled Madeline down before leaving to capture Ryan.

Only after Ryan was captured could Linnie stop being scared and recover in a comfortable, relaxing environment.

Madeline poked her head out of the window and looked at Jeremy’s back as he ran off. There was a vague uneasiness in her beautiful eyes.

“Jeremy’s gone again,” she muttered sadly. A touch of melancholy and worry appeared on her face again.

Thinking about what Jeremy had just told her, Madeline sat quietly in the car.

However, her heart was beating wildly. Ryan’s appearance earlier had startled her.

On the other hand, Ryan had been keeping tabs on Madeline and Jeremy. He followed them back the same day they flew back to Glendale.

He knew that the police and IBCI were looking for him, but he would not allow himself to be caught until he achieved his goal.

After scurrying off, he hid in an alley.

The injury he got that day was still inflamed, making him feel a bit off.

He wanted to go home, but he read some news online and knew that there were reporters nearby. The police were there waiting as well.

He could not go home nor contact his parents.

Ryan furrowed his long eyebrows and leaned tiredly against the wall, his eyes filled with strong reluctance.

“Jeremy, there’s no way I’m going to let Eveline return to you and reunite with your family so happily.”

He clenched his teeth, and the darkness in his eyes surged.

‘Even if I don’t get to the end of the plan, at least I’ll leave you a lifetime of regrets.’

Ryan swore to himself. He looked at the sore wound and tried to return to his lodging, but as soon as he turned around, he caught sight of Jeremy’s tall frame.

Ryan’s eyes darkened as he looked at the man walking toward him step by step.

Though it was sunny, Ryan could see that Jeremy’s whole body was full of cold aura.

Ryan knew exactly how Jeremy was feeling right now.

It was a sharp blow to him that the woman he loved the most had forgotten him.

Ryan curled the corners of his lips into a smirk of triumph at the thought of this. “Jeremy, so what if you’ve caught me? You can never make Eveline the same again. How is it? How does it feel to be forgotten by the woman you love the most?”

His tone was sarcastic, and his smile was somewhat arrogant.

“Jeremy, do you know how I’ve been tormenting the woman you love to the point of driving her insane?”

Though Jeremy knew Ryan was only saying this to provoke him, he could not help taking the bait.

He tightened his long fair fingers one by one, and the blue veins on the back of his hand bulged. His thin peach blossom lips were pursed into a cold hard arc, and his eyes glistened coldly.

As he walked toward Ryan, Ryan continued provoking him.

“I locked her in the room every day. I forced her to take injections and eat. I also forced her to obey me and be mine. However, she was so stubborn that she wouldn’t listen to me. Therefore, I could only take a more extreme approach to sand her edges. In the end, I succeeded.

“Jeremy, the woman you love the most is no different than an idiot now. She’ll spend her days in dread because I’m not going to let you capture me so easily!”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1334
With that, Ryan stopped his arrogant chuckle as his expression changed immediately. He pulled out a gun he had prepared and quickly fired a bullet at Jeremy before turning around.

However, Jeremy would not allow himself to be Ryan’s target and let him slip away again.

He lifted his long legs and dodged the bullet with the help of a crate stacked nearby. At the same time, he leaped to his feet. His cold body came to Ryan’s side in a single leap.

Ryan jerked back, shock flickering across his face.

He grabbed his gun, trying to shoot Jeremy again.

However, Jeremy was quick to react. He suddenly reached out and grabbed the gun from Ryan’s hand. He countered Ryan and pointed the gun at him.

Facing the black muzzle in front of him, Ryan lapsed into a trance. He was not expecting such a twist.

Jeremy looked at Ryan with an indifferent expression while Ryan’s face changed slightly. There was a chill in Jeremy’s eyes.

“Ryan, I’m not arresting you as an IBCI agent but as Eveline’s husband. I’m here to inflict double the amount of injuries and blood that my wife has suffered and shed because of you.”

His words were like ice, and his eyes were like sharp swords that stabbed Ryan, whose expression changed immediately.

“Is this the same gun you used to shoot my wife the other day?”

Jeremy would never forget the day Madeline jumped out of the car to run to him. On that day, Ryan had brutally shot her with a gun and interrupted their reunion.

Ryan also felt Jeremy’s rage and hatred.

Just before he was about to react, Jeremy pulled the trigger.

There was a bang as the bullet went through Ryan’s shoulder, causing blood to flow.

Ryan frowned and tried to suppress the pain. He did not say anything and only smiled.

“Hmph. Jeremy, do you think that’s all Eveline suffered? You can kill me today if you dare, but let me remind you, you’re an IBCI agent. You know what will happen if you dare execute a high commander like me.”

Ryan was goading him by threatening and warning him.

He thought Jeremy would be distracted or stunned, but to his surprise, Jeremy’s eyes only darkened. He pulled the trigger again. With such precision, he let the lethal bullet scorchingly grazed Ryan’s palm.

The scorching sting felt like a sharp knife cutting through Ryan’s skin.

“Hiss!” Ryan hissed in pain, and a cold sweat broke out on his forehead.

“Do you know what it feels like to be punctured by glass?” Jeremy’s phoenix eyes narrowed slightly. “So what if I kill you today? Do you think I’m going to let you get arrested comfortably? Ryan, you can go after me. You can go after any of us for whatever vengeance you think you have, but not Linnie.”

He paused before uttering three words through his thin lips, “She’s my everything.”

Ryan saw something murderous in Jeremy’s eyes when he said this.

“Ryan, in case you don’t know, the IBCI superiors have given instructions to shoot you if you’re violent during the arrest for the crime you’ve committed.

“In other words, I wouldn’t be responsible for anything if I shoot you right now. Instead, I would be praised for the good work.

“Why should I give you a pleasant death when I can shoot you on the spot?”

Ryan was rendered speechless. A hint of panic appeared on Ryan’s cold, sweaty face.

He knew that Jeremy dared to do it.

As Jeremy’s finger landed on the trigger again, Ryan broke into a strange smile. He gasped heavily. The blood loss was making it difficult for him to speak. “Jeremy, you seem to have forgotten something important.”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1335
Ryan raised the corners of his lips, and his eyes, with vision blurry due to his injury, looked particularly bleak.

“Is it alright for you to come after me and leave Eveline alone in the car?” Ryan’s smile got a little sinister.

Once he finished speaking, Ryan noticed that Jeremy’s finger on the trigger had loosened.

Jeremy felt butterflies in his stomach when he thought of Madeline who was left alone in the car before he came to catch Ryan.

He looked at Ryan who was smiling insidiously and immediately turned around to sprint back to the spot before.

‘Linnie!’ Jeremy shouted Madeline’s name in his head.

He was afraid.

He was afraid that Madeline was in danger again.

He realized that he had been careless. He should not have left Madeline alone in the car.

‘She’s not in a good state of mind. How could I just leave her and go after Ryan?

‘Linnie!’

Jeremy felt tormented. He quickly sprinted in the direction of the car.

It was a short distance away, but Jeremy felt that the road had somehow lengthened.

With the car just around the corner, Jeremy strode over to the passenger door.

“Linnie!” he shouted nervously, peering through the car window, but there was nothing as far as his eyes could see.

‘My Linnie’s gone!’

Jeremy almost instantly felt cold, and even his breath froze for a second.

“Ryan!”

He turned quickly and sped to where Ryan was.

Jeremy did not expect Ryan to have help!

‘No.

‘I have no one to blame. It’s my fault.

‘I was negligent.

‘I said I’d never lose her again, but now…’

Jeremy blamed himself and returned to the spot where he and Ryan confronted each other earlier, only to find a pool of blood with Ryan nowhere in sight.

Jeremy’s hands were cold, and he looked out at the empty entrance of the alley. Everything before his eyes went black.

“Linnie…”

“I’m here.”

“…”

A soft response rang behind his ears.

Everything that had been gloomy and grey before Jeremy seemed to restore its color in an instant. He instantly turned around to look behind him, and he caught sight of Madeline’s soft, beautiful face.

She was wearing a plain white dress, and her long bob waved slightly in the wind. She appeared before him, as clean and dreamy as a painting.

Jeremy could not stop his eyes from warming up. He ran up to Madeline and wrapped his arms around her.

“Linnie.” Embracing her warm body, Jeremy felt truly at ease.

“I thought I had lost you again, Linnie.”

He held her tightly, his trembling palms pressed against the back of her head. He feared that she would disappear again.

Madeline opened her beautiful eyes as if she did not understand why Jeremy was reacting so strongly.

However, no matter what, it was reassuring to have Jeremy hold her like this.

Jeremy kissed the top of Madeline’s head over and over again, still reeling from shock.

He figured it out now. Ryan lied to him to escape. He used Madeline’s safety to trick him.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1336
‘Thank God, it was all just a lie from Ryan.’

He silently let out a breath of relief, and the worry in his chest dissipated.

“Linnie, I told you to wait for me in the car. What are you doing here?” Jeremy loosened his hug and looked at Madeline’s eyes as he asked gently.

Madeline lowered her gorgeous eyes. “I didn’t want to risk being unable to see you ever again.”

Jeremy felt a surge of warmth within him when he heard her reply. He could also feel the heat in his eyes. Then, he extended his arms and hugged Madeline tightly again.

Their breaths mingled in the air, and their heart was pumping fast with thrill.

“Linnie, you’ll never have to endure days when you can’t see me ever again. From now onward, I’ll be with you every single second.”

Madeline smiled and closed her eyes, leaning in Jeremy’s arms.

Upon returning from April Hill, Jeremy told Interpol everything about Ryan and informed that he was the one who used his gun to injure Ryan.

However, Ryan was a cunning man. Despite suffering from a heavy injury, he did not make any trips to the hospital.

After investigating all of the private and government hospitals in Glendale, they still failed to trace him.

Jeremy brought Madeline back to their new house to prevent her from having more trouble.

At sunset, Jeremy personally prepared dinner and Madeline ate the meal with satisfaction.

Perhaps she was too fatigued, so after the meal, Madeline immediately fell asleep after taking her bath.

For the past two days, it had been hectic. Jeremy was tired as well. After bathing, he gently lay down on the bed.

The bright moonlight outside shone into the floor-to-ceiling window. Jeremy placed one of his hands over his head and raised the other lazily, touching Madeline’s face.

He stared at her, inched closer, and kissed her on the face.

After kissing her, Jeremy started worrying.

He was afraid he would disturb Madeline. He was afraid that if Madeline were to open her eyes right now, she would realize his eyes and hair color were different from what they used to be and she would fail to recognize him.

Perhaps it was because he had such anxiety that Madeline was really about to wake up.

Jeremy got anxious and quickly switched off the table lamp.

Currently, he had taken off his wig and was not wearing colored contact lenses. With his current look, it would appear frightening and unfamiliar to Madeline.

He slowly turned around and had his back facing Madeline.

However, in just a moment, Jeremy felt Madeline leaning against his back. In the next second, she wrapped her hands around his waist.

Jeremy froze up. He felt his body temperature gradually rising after feeling the warmth emanating from her body.

He turned around and quietly watched her eyes that were half-open with the help of the moonlight.

“Linnie?”

“Yes?” Madeline nodded, then said out of curiosity, “Jeremy, I’m feeling a bit dizzy. It’s like I can’t recall many things. I only remember you. Say, what’s happening to me?”

Heartbroken, he touched her face. “Linnie, you haven’t been looking well lately. Go get more rest. You’ll be well soon.”

“Then, you have to keep me company.” She made her request coquettishly.

“Of course, I’ll accompany you. No matter where you are in this world, I’ll always follow you.” He closed his eyes and hugged her shoulder, placing her in his arms.

Madeline let out a sweet smile. Then, she raised her head and placed her lips onto Jeremy’s thin lips before kissing him passionately.

The sudden fragrance that approached Jeremy made him fumble. He did not expect Madeline to take the initiative and kiss him in such a situation.

While he was still spaced out, Madeline kissed him for the second time.

This time, just when her lips were about to leave him, Jeremy lifted his hands and pressed them on Madeline’s head.

Their gazes interlocked under the night sky, and it was as if a flow of passion was coursing through them.

However, when facing Madeline, who was so close to him, Jeremy was still trying to control his emotions.

The night before he returned, he had acted rashly and frightened her to the point where she wanted to run away. At that moment, he did not want to scare her off again.

After being silent for a few seconds, Jeremy pursed his lips and swallowed the urge to act rashly. He touched Madeline’s head. “Linnie, sleep early. Good—”

However, before he could say his good night wishes, Jeremy’s lips were sealed by Madeline’s lips again. He was stunned and looked at the lady before him, astonished…

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1337
Jeremy could no longer remain rational in such a situation.

After being absent-minded for a few seconds, he went from being passive to becoming more initiative. He held Madeline completely in his arms and placed his lips over hers…

This period of separation had made his yearning for her grow stronger to the point where he was unable to control himself.

Even in his dreams, he longed to hug the one he loved the most to sleep. However, he was unable to realize such a simple wish.

“Linnie, Linnie…” he kept gently calling out to her by her ear. Each word was spoken with much passion.

Jeremy could no longer control his emotions and allowed his mind to take over him. Both of them were indulged in that summer’s night that was engulfed in a lovely atmostphere.

They had a good night’s sleep.

When the sun was shining, Jeremy woke up. He lowered his head and saw Madeline cuddling in his arms like a kitten.

Her face was still stained with bright red, as if it was an artwork left from their passionate night.

Jeremy leaned forward and kissed Madeline between her brows. Then, he slowly freed his arm that was being hugged by Madeline. He got out of the bed and went to the bathroom to get himself cleaned up

After cleaning up, he wore his wig and colored contact lenses again.

Currently, he could only look forward to Adam’s injection slowly taking effect, which would allow him to be free from the sufferings of the poison. Also, so that the color of his hair and pupils would go back to the way it was before as soon as possible.

Moreover, he prayed for Madeline to recover soon. He hoped she would recall the past and remember that they had three cute children waiting for her to return home.

A few days went by peacefully.

Ryan seemed to have vanished into thin air as no one was able to find him.

Jeremy brought Madeline to a psychologist to undergo treatment. However, the first session did not bear any fruits. Hence, he made another appointment to come again.

Just when they were about to leave, Jeremy received Sean’s call. He asked Jeremy to bring Madeline over for a visit.

Jeremy did not reject Sean’s request and immediately brought Madeline over to the hotel where Sean and Eloise were temporarily staying.

After opening the door, Madeline saw Sean and was spaced out for a moment. Then, she called out, “Dad?”

Sean was dumbfounded for a moment, then he wore a thrilled expression. “Eveline, you finally recognize me?”

“How could I not recognize my own dad?” Madeline counter-questioned.

Sean was flabbergasted and looked at Jeremy, then smiled. “Come in, quick.”

Madeline smiled and entered the room.

As soon as she entered, she saw Eloise sitting alone on the sofa that was by the floor-to-ceiling window. Her mouth seemed to be muttering something.

“Hey, Eveline went missing.

“Did she happen to find another mother who looks almost like me?

“Then, does that mean I won’t be able to meet Eveline anymore?”

Eloise kept muttering to herself.

Madeline frowned when she saw Eloise in such a state.

She felt a pinch in her heart. No words could describe her current feelings.

“Mom.” All she could do was to blurt out that word.

It was as if Eloise just heard the commotion. She suddenly raised her head and saw Madeline standing before her. Eloise’s eyes suddenly gleamed with excitement.

“It’s you!”

Eloise got up and quickly headed over to Madeline.

She grabbed Madeline’s hand and led her to the sofa. “Why did you go missing for so many days? Where have you been for the past few days?

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1338
Madeline heard Eloise’s comment and was puzzled.

In the next moment, she once again heard Eloise’s sigh of loneliness. “My Eveline is not willing to bother a mother like me, so I thought that even this Eveline can’t be bothered about me as well.”

As Eloise was talking, she picked up a snack that she just made and placed some of it in Madeline’s hand. “If I knew you were coming, I’d have made more of it since you said previously that you love it.”

Madeline blinked her gorgeous eyes. She wanted to say something but did not know what she should be saying.

Sean and Jeremy witnessed this scene that made them frown.

“I thought Eveline had recalled everything. I didn’t expect her to just remember the old you.”

“I’m really speechless. Eveline ended up just like her mother, half-crazy and half-dumb.”

Sean sighed in sorrow and lifted his head to look at Jeremy who was wearing a wig and colored contact lenses.

“The poison in your body, is it really possible to get rid of it completely?”

“I believe in Adam’s ability.” Jeremy had a confident look. At that moment, he was no longer suspicious of Adam.

In the meantime, he turned to look at Madeline with a gaze that looked as warm as the spring breeze. “I’ll keep Madeline company and be with her for an even longer time to come.”

Sean could sense Jeremy’s sincerity to Madeline and was not going to blame him for anything.

“Has Ryan been arrested?” Sean tried to get a picture of the situation.

“There’s no news for now, but currently, he’s injured. Things aren’t looking good for him. I’m guessing that he’ll be arrested in no time.”

Sean was relieved, but his expression was still tense.

“This man must be locked up. Initially, I thought he was a gentleman but never did I expect his true color to be this terrifying. Eveline is a good girl, yet because of him, she ended up in this state! What a b*stard!”

Sean was exasperated and cursed.

Jeremy could comprehend Sean’s current feelings because that was what he felt as well.

He looked around the hotel room and asked Sean, “Dad, let’s bring Mom back to Whitman Manor. Her current situation doesn’t look too good. It’ll be better if more people are there to take care of her.”

Sean hesitated and frowned. “Well, you know it too that your mom and Eloise used to have huge fights with each other. I’m afraid it wouldn’t be as convenient.”

“My mom knows she’s at fault and has already changed a lot,” Jeremy added.

“Besides, the three kids are in Whitman Manor. If their maternal grandparents went over, they’ll be thrilled for sure.”

Speaking of the three kids made Sean’s eyes gleam with much more love. He no longer rejected the offer.

Seeing that Sean had agreed, Jeremy then made a call to Karen and explained the entire situation.

After hanging up the call, Jeremy and Sean took the luggage and headed toward Whitman Manor with their respective loved ones.

Karen had been waiting at the doorway for a long time. After seeing Eloise, Karen felt sorry for her as well.

Thinking back to the past, she knew that she had done lots of terrible things. However, apologizing now bore no meaning behind it. She thought she should pay more attention to Eloise during their stay together and take care of her.

After Elosie and Sean moved in, the atmosphere was more lively.

Jackson and Lillian were very happy. Although Pudding, the youngest child, could not express his emotions, they could see that he was very close to his maternal grandparents.

Jeremy thought of bringing Madeline back to the new house, but seeing that Eloise was reluctant to be apart from Madeline, he decided to stay for the night.

He would do what he did on any other day. He would wait till Madeline had fallen asleep before taking off his wig and colored contact lenses to prevent Madeline from treating him as a stranger and rejecting him.

The night was rather quiet. Jeremy felt that it had been a while since he felt content. The number of nights when he could hug her and protect her while she was sleeping was really less.

“Linnie, when will you recover?”

He sighed softly, then lowered his head to kiss her. He held her tightly as he hit the sack.

Just when he was about to fall asleep, he vaguely heard Madeline calling out his name continuously.

Jeremy opened his eyes and suddenly heard Madeline’s terrifying shrieks. “No! Save me, Jeremy!”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1339
Jeremy felt as if his heartstring were being pulled painfully as he was completely awakened at that moment.

He switched on the table lamp. Under the soft lighting, he saw Madeline drenched in a cold sweat. She was tightly holding onto the blanket, her eyes shut as she frowned. Her mouth kept blurting for help. She was terrified.

“Jeremy, don’t go, don’t go…”

She was dreaming, and her tone sounded like she was crying. Jeremy could even see tears coming out from the corners of Madeline’s eyes.

He could easily guess that she was having a nightmare. Heartbroken, Jeremy held onto Madeline’s hand. “Linnie.”

However, as soon as he called out to her, Madeline had a huge reaction and shoved his hand away forcefully. “Ryan, what do you want?” she suddenly questioned.

It was obvious that she was dreaming of Ryan. In her dream, Ryan was trying to force her to do something she was reluctant to do.

Jeremy was hurt, and once again, he stretched his hands out to grasp Madeline’s icy cold hands.

“Linnie, wake up.”

“No, no…”

“Linnie.”

“Ryan, let go of my parents! I’ll never run away again. I’ll follow whatever you say. I’m begging you…”

Hearing these words made Jeremy feel as if his heart was broken into pieces again.

‘Linnie, so this is how Ryan, that b*stard, forced and threatened you?

‘Just how cruel could he be to make you have such a nightmare?’

Jeremy leaned over and got to the front of Madeline. He raised his hand to touch her forehead. He could feel a thick layer of sweat. Her face was icy cold as well. One could imagine just how terrified and insecure Madeline was feeling deep down inside.

“Linnie, Linnie, wake up.”

Jeremy frowned and called out to Madeline, his expression plastered with sorrow. He did not wish for her to continue with the nightmare.

“Linnie, I’m here for you. Don’t be afraid. Hurry and wake up. Take a look at your Jeremy. He’s here. He’ll never let Ryan harm you again, Linnie…”

Madeline suddenly opened her eyes as if she had heard Jeremy’s voice.

Those pretty eyes were brewing with anxiety and terror as she stared at Jeremy who was right in front of her.

“Linnie, you’re awake.” Jeremy gave a gentle smile.

However, the moment Madeline saw Jeremy, her expression changed for the worst. She pushed him away and anxiously jumped off the bed.

Jeremy felt as if his heart had sunk when he was pushed away, but soon, he got down from the bed and chased after her.

“Linnie.”

“Who are you? Why are you with me? Where’s Jeremy? I clearly heard Jeremy saying that he’s here.” Madeline put up her guard and glared at Jeremy who was approaching her.

“Don’t come near me!” Madeline roared. Her pale face made her eyes appear extraordinarily red.

Jeremy quickly came to a halt as he was afraid of agitating Madeline.

He cared for her, but for the time being, he could only obey her.

Madeline stared at Jeremy for a moment, then looked away before saying, “Jeremy… I’m going to look for him. He said he’s coming for me. I’m going to reunite with him.”

After Madeline was done muttering, she spun around and quickly headed to the doorway.

Bare-footed and wearing a thin layer of pajamas, she walked out the room without looking back.

Jeremy quickly took Madeline’s slippers. He turned around and took something from the cabinet before hurriedly catching up to her.

After exiting the room, Jeremy noticed that Madeline was already downstairs.

At that moment, it was late at night. Even though it was during the end of summer, the temperature outside the room was enough to engulf him with a slight chilly sensation.

Jeremy quickly stepped out of the doorway but could not locate Madeline’s whereabouts.

In just a split second, she had vanished from his vision.

Jeremy held onto Madeline’s slippers and rushed forward to look for her as an unknown sense of horror and endless darkness seemed to lurk within him.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1340
‘No, it’s just been a short while. Linnie couldn’t have gone far.’

Jeremy thought to himself as if he was trying to comfort himself.

He was too afraid he would let her go missing again.

He used to be a man who was not afraid of death, yet currently, he was trembling with fear till his palms were soaking with cold sweat.

“Linnie!”

Facing the air, Jeremy shouted out Madeline’s name, but the only reply he got in return was the sound of the tree branches being blown by the night breeze.

‘Where are you, Linnie?

‘Silly, your Jeremy is right here.’

Jeremy felt as if his heart was being set on fire where it was roasted, burning him.

At that moment, he heard a yell and the sound of someone falling on the ground from afar.

“Linnie!”

Jeremy quickly headed over in the direction of the sound and saw it was Madeline who tripped over.

Not knowing the reason, she had run to the river behind the villa. Under the street lights, Jeremy could clearly see Madeline having fallen onto the ground.

Jeremy ran over to her. Madeline was trying her best to get up.

“Linnie.”

He rushed over to her side at lightning speed and carried the woman who was fumbling.

The moment their skin touched, Jeremy could feel Madeline trembling in fear.

The moment she snapped out of it, she pushed Jeremy away again.

“Let me go! You’re Ryan’s lackey, right? He’s the one who ordered you to catch me back? What about my mom and dad? What did you guys do to them?”

Madeline kept pestering, her face pale and bloodless under the yellow street lights.

“Jeremy? Where’s Jeremy? He said he’s coming to get me. But why hasn’t he arrived even after I’ve waited for so long…” she muttered, then suddenly put on a terrified look.

“I know! It’s Ryan! It must be Ryan who did something to Jeremy! Jeremy…”

Madeline spun around anxiously, attempting to look for Jeremy.

Jeremy tried to suppress the hurt and mixed feelings within him. He then carried Madeline in his arms.

Madeline kept struggling. “Let me go!”

“Stop searching, Linnie. Your Jeremy is right here.” Jeremy comforted patiently with a gentle tone. His hatred and anger toward Ryan were growing strong within him.

However, Madeline was still struggling with all she had. “You’re not my Jeremy. Jeremy has been captured by Ryan! You let go of me. I’ll go find Ryan. I’ll promise him not to run away again, as long he’s willing to let go of my parents and Jeremy!”

Madeline wanted to leave after she spoke. Seeing Jeremy was insisting on not letting her go, she got exasperated and raised her hand. Then, she slapped Jeremy hard across the face.

“Didn’t you hear me telling you to let go of me?!” Her face was dark with rage.

Jeremy turned his head away, enduring the searing pain on his face. His orbs were glittering as he felt sorry for Madeline.

He emphasized while grasping Madeline’s shoulder, “Linnie, I’m Jeremy. Just look at me!”

“You’re not! Jeremy doesn’t look like this!” Feeling agitated, Madeline denied it.

“Yes, it’s me.” Jeremy looked into Madeline’s red and teary eyes, continuing to gently comfort her. “Linnie, I’m your Jeremy. Ryan didn’t do anything to me. I’ll also never let him harm you again. We’re already at home.”

Madeline seemed to be dumbfounded after hearing what Jeremy said.

She stared at him for some time before shaking her head. “No, you’re lying.”

“Linnie, I’m not lying to you,” said Jeremy as he took out an item from the pocket of his pajamas, presenting it to Madeline. “Look, Linnie. This is the best proof that I’m Jeremy.”
