Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 21-30

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 21
Jeremy was fearful. He felt like there was a hidden thorn in his heart stabbing him mercilessly. He picked up Madeline without any hesitation.

When Meredith saw this from one side, she stepped forward to stop him. “Jeremy, where are you taking Maddie?”

However, Jeremy ignored her and sped to the hospital while holding Madeline.

Throughout the way, his brain was occupied with the moment he first met the girl when he was young. That moment was delicate yet quiet and contented. It kept on replaying in his brain.

Jeremy’s heart was beating frantically. He somehow forgot that he was supposed to be in disdain of Madeline and carried her to the ER frantically.

She had said she was pregnant and it was his. However, his body was now stained with her blood.

Jeremy felt as if he was being suffocated by something invisible. This was the first time he hoped that Madeline would be okay.

He paced back and forth as he waited outside. He felt extremely anxious.

At this moment, a nurse walked out. Jeremy stopped her and asked, “What’s happening? What’s wrong with my wife?”

The nurse looked at Jeremy. There was resentment in her tone as she said, “You’re really something else as her husband. She’s pregnant, and she was still running around in the rain. Not to mention, she’s covered in wounds all over. She has a cold and is bleeding from her genitals. It’s up to God whether the child will be saved.”

Jeremy felt like he could not breathe. The suffocating feeling made his mind go blank. There was only one thing on his mind; it was for Madeline to be saved no matter what.

After a long time, the door to the operating room opened.

Jeremy rushed to the bed and found Madeline unconscious. Seeing her colorless face, Jeremy felt a pang in his heart.

He could not help himself from holding Madeline’s cold hand as his eyes displayed a solemn gaze.

‘Madeline, tell me. Why did you call me Jez? Why do you know about my promise with Linnie when I was young?’

Madeline was brought to the VIP room where she slept drowsily. She vaguely felt someone holding her hand as the warmth slowly seeped into her skin. Her body did not feel so cold anymore.

When Madeline woke up, it was already the next day. While trying to move, she noticed that someone was holding her hand tightly.

She widened her eyes in dumbfoundedness and saw Jeremy leaning against the bed. His hand was holding hers tightly. It felt so warm.

Madeline looked at what was happening with a dazed look on her face. She felt as if she were dreaming.

Jeremy opened his eyes the moment he felt movement.

When he saw Madeline looking at him stupidly, he touched her forehead. She had had a fever the night before, but it seemed like it had gone away.

Madeline was in disbelief at Jeremy’s gentle gestures. “Jeremy…” She called out to him. Her voice was hoarse, and her throat hurt.

“Don’t talk. Let me fetch you a glass of warm water.”

“Jeremy…” Madeline’s eyes turned red, and she felt like all of her wounds had been healed.

Jeremy helped her up and fed her some water.

He did not ask her about what had happened when they were kids upon seeing her in such a weak state.

Madeline leaned against Jeremy’s chest. At this moment, his gentleness felt so surreal.

“Jeremy, why did you…”

“When did you have the baby? Why didn’t you tell me?” His tone was gentle. He had never talked to her like this before.

Madeline was stunned as she held the glass of water. She remembered telling him clearly.

When Jeremy saw that Madeline was in a state of daze, he did not say anything more.

“You should rest now. Just tell me when you’re better.” He then carefully helped her lie down.

Madeline was tearful. She was a little joyous too.

Had he remembered their promise because she had called him Jez before falling unconscious? Or was he now feeling remorseful because she almost had a miscarriage?

No matter what the reason was, Madeline was happy.

At the very least, Jeremy would look at her now.

Jeremy wanted to stay with Madeline a little longer. However, he ended up leaving after seeing that he had a few phone calls from his company. When he was about to near the lift, he heard Meredith’s voice from the other end of the corridor.

“Doctor, is that true?” Meredith sounded astonished. “Please don’t tell Maddie’s husband about this!”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 22
Upon hearing this, Jeremy’s expression changed.

He walked nearer and saw that Meredith had her back against him. She was talking to Madeline’s doctor.

“Why is this happening? I never expected Maddie to do something like that…” Not long after, Meredith was heard sighing.

Jeremy had not gotten the full story. However, when he was about to go forward and question them, the doctor frowned and said awkwardly, “Sigh! It’s against my medical ethics to lie, but your sister is really something else. She isn’t pregnant, but she insisted on pretending to be pregnant. She even used fake blood to pretend that the baby had been affected. When we found out, she threatened to kill herself and forced us to lie with her. We’re speechless!”

Jeremy’s face was immediately covered with a layer of ice after he heard this.

She was pretending?

Madeline was pretending to be pregnant? Her blood was also fake?

“I can understand why Maddie would have done that, but I never would’ve imagined she’d threaten to kill herself and force you guys to lie to her husband. She’s so headstrong!”

“I think you should talk to your sister. Her husband will see through her fake pregnancy one day.” The doctor turned around to leave after talking to her.

Meredith chased up to him. “Doctor, don’t tell anyone about this, especially my sister’s husband. I’m afraid that he might kill her if he finds out.”

The doctor sighed helplessly. “You should take care of it yourself. At the end of the day, there’s nothing wrong with Madeline. She can be discharged at any time.”

“Thank you, Doctor! Thank you, Doctor!”

Meredith thanked the doctor as he walked away.

After thanking the doctor, Meredith sighed and frowned.

“Maddie, you’ve gone over the top. I can forgive you for pretending to be me and lying to Jeremy that you’re his childhood friend. However, how could you lie about being pregnant? Sigh!”

Meredith sighed and turned around. She lifted her head and saw Jeremy in the distance. Consequently, she let out a shocked expression.

She looked at Jeremy timidly. “J-Jeremy, when did you get here?”

Jeremy looked at Meredith who was so nervous that she was rubbing her hands together. He suppressed his anger. “You’re aware of that woman’s scheme, and you’re still trying to lie to me for her?”

Having heard Jeremy’s words, Meredith was stunned for a few seconds. Nevertheless, she looked at him with a puzzled look on her face and said, “Jeremy, I don’t know what you’re talking about? Who? Who did I help? You must have misheard me.”

When Jeremy saw that Meredith refused to tell him the truth, he frowned. “I heard what you said to the doctor, and you still want to lie to me?”

Meredith shook her head, and her eyes turned red from grievance. “Jeremy, I’m not lying to you. How could I lie to you?”

“Are you still not going to tell me the truth?”

“Jeremy…”

“Alright, if you don’t want to tell me the truth, I’ll ask her myself!” Jeremy turned around; his eyes were cold.

“Jeremy, no!” Meredith ran over and grabbed Jeremy’s arm. “Jeremy, don’t be angry. Please don’t be angry!”

She sobbed. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have lied to you. However, if I hadn’t lied for Maddie, you wouldn’t be able to forgive her. That’s why I…”

Meredith grabbed Jeremy’s arm and looked at him with tears in her eyes. “Jeremy, please don’t blame Maddie. She knows she’s at fault. I know she won’t do such a thing ever again!

“It’s my fault. It’s all my fault! I shouldn’t have stayed with you after your wedding. I caused Maddie to fake her pregnancy out of jealousy. I also shouldn’t have told Maddie about what happened when we first met and made her have that sinister idea. That’s why she lied and told you that she’s that little girl. It’s all my fault, Jeremy. Just put all the blame on me!”

Jeremy’s eyes were extremely dark when he heard this.

It was all fake!

She was only trying to make him pity her!

She was a pathological liar indeed. Why would he think that she was the little girl that he wanted to protect? That girl was Meredith!

Flames of wrath rose up in his chest as he recalled how gentle he had treated Madeline just now.

Consequently, he turned around and charged back toward her room. Meredith called out after him frantically. However, a smirk had already appeared on her lips.

Madeline had closed her eyes when Jeremy barged in with a dark expression on his face. Her heart skipped a beat. “Jeremy, what’s wrong?”

Jeremy did not say anything. He walked toward the side of the bed slowly.

Madeline felt the aura of death coming from him. However, just as she was about to speak, Jeremy reached out his hands and grabbed her by the neck.

“Jeremy…”

At that moment, Madeline could not breathe. Her pale face turned red.

“Madeline Crawford, you deserve to die.” Jeremy moved his lips frigidly. His dark eyes were staring at her as if he wanted to see through her. “It would’ve been fine if you had only pretended to be pregnant, but how dare you impersonate Meredith? Did you really think you’d be able to get away with it?”

What…

Madeline’s eyes widened in confusion, but she could not say anything as she was being choked.

She could only see Jeremy’s eyes. They looked like they were about to slice her with a knife a million times.

“Madeline, since you had the nerve to lie to me, you should know what the consequences you should suffer are!”

After he said that, he pushed Madeline away.

Madeline was like a broken doll that was being thrown away. She fell from the bed, and her head hit the corner of its frame. Additionally, the IV drip in the back of her hand was ripped out, and she trembled from the excruciating pain.

She placed her hand on her stomach subconsciously and got up despite being in pain. Subsequently, she sat on the floor and grabbed Jeremy’s pants. “Jeremy, I didn’t lie to you. I’m r-really pregnant. I have the doctor’s proof. You can take me for an ultrasound now. Jeremy, please trust me for once. Just once, Jeremy…”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 23
“Heh.”

Jeremy scoffed lightly. He looked down at Madeline coldly with his dark eyes.

“Madeline, I underestimated you. You even managed to bribe the doctors here to make them lie to me about your pregnancy. Do you think I’m a fool? Do you think I’d be fooled so easily?”

Madeline lifted her head and sobbed sadly. “No! I haven’t lied to you, Jeremy! Why would I lie to you about something like that? I really am pregnant! Jeremy, you don’t believe me? Touch my stomach. The child really is here…”

Madeline stood up with all her might and grabbed Jeremy’s hand. She wanted him to believe her. She wanted him to feel the life that was already forming in her stomach.

However, Jeremy pushed away her hand.

“Get lost! Don’t touch me with your filthy hand!” Jeremy’s eyes were as sharp as knives. “You’re not pregnant. However, even if you really are, I’ll abort it because you do not deserve it! Madeline, a woman like you will never have the chance to have anything to do with me!”

“Jeremy!” When Madeline saw that Jeremy was about to leave, she chased after him while stumbling. She grabbed his arm. “Jeremy, don’t go. You told me you’d protect me forever! I am Linnie. Have you forgotten? Jeremy…”

Madeline begged for him to stay, but what she said triggered him. Almost instantly, she felt an intense aura of death. The next second, she was pushed to the ground by Jeremy. Consequently, Madeline clutched her stomach in pain. She could see the man’s terrifying gaze through her tears. “Madeline, you deserve to die.”

“Jeremy…” Cold sweat started to appear on Madeline’s body due to the pain. However, Jeremy left after he said those hurtful words. He was not concerned about her wellbeing at all.

Madeline got up from the ground and smiled bitterly. Her eyes were filled with tears.

‘Jez, you’re no longer the boy Linnie once knew…’

Throughout the next few days, Jeremy did not show up. There was no word of concern at all. It was as if he had forgotten about her.

Madeline laid on the bed but did not recover even after a few days. On the contrary, she felt herself getting weaker and weaker. So, she asked Ava to bring her to a specialized hospital for a check up.

When the results came out, Madeline was shocked.

“Miss Crawford, you don’t have much time. If you don’t abort the child, you don’t have a chance.”

The doctor did not beat around the bush. Perhaps she had seen too much of life and death and was already numb.

Madeline’s vision turned black for a while. If Ava were not there with her, she might have passed out.

She knew she could not delay treating the tumor. However, she had not expected misfortune to come so fast.

“Maddie, you can have a child again, while you only have one life,” Ava advised. She did not wait any longer before arranging the surgery for Madeline.

After a while, Ava came back with the receipt. Madeline held it in her hand with her face that was completely pale. All of a sudden, she crumpled it up and threw it into the bin.

Ava was stunned. “Maddie?”

Madeline’s eyes were wet. She looked oddly determined. “I won’t give up this child even if I die.”

The tumor would worsen even if she were to abort the child. It was just a matter of time.

Not to mention, it might be the only trammel she could leave for Jeremy.

It was difficult to sway Madeline’s decision now.

Ava had no choice. She could only advise her to at least let Jeremy know about her condition.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 24
Nonetheless, Madeline shook her head and smiled bitterly. What was the difference between telling him and not telling him?

He would not care about her. To Jeremy, it would be best if she died.

For the sake of the child in her stomach, Madeline had to live positively.

The doctor told her that the child was counteracting her.

The more the child grew inside her, the worse Madeline would become since the little dumpling’s position was directly above the tumor that would worsen day by day.

Madeline submitted countless resumes online, and they elicited no response. However, in the end, she got an order.

It was from a small company. They wanted Madeline to design a pair of rings, and they offered her a decent price.

Of course, Madeline accepted the order. She worked the entire day in her room and only came downstairs to make some food.

The child was three months old. However, it was winter, so she did not look like she was pregnant while wearing her sweater.

During this period, Jeremy did not ask about her, and she was already used to it.

All of a sudden, she heard footsteps at the front door. Furthermore, she saw Jeremy returning to the house.

The man was wearing a black leather jacket. There was an air of asceticism to him, and he looked alluring.

There were two bags with cartoons printed on them in his hands. When Madeline looked closer, she noticed that they were children’s clothes.

She was surprised but still felt delighted and hopeful.

Nonetheless, she then heard Jeremy’s cold voice saying, “These are for Mer.”

When he spoke, he sounded gentle. However, his gentleness was for Meredith.

The hope in Madeline’s eyes was crushed instantly.

“Madeline, you couldn’t possibly have thought that these are for you?” The man mocked as he questioned her, “How could I have a child with you?”

What he added crushed Madeline’s heart.

She looked at his cold face with pain in her heart. “Jeremy, you’re so devious!”

“You expect me to be kind to a b*tch like you? Madeline, do you think you deserve it?”

He chuckled lightly. His deep eyes scanned Madeline’s colorless face. Subsequently, he turned around and walked upstairs.

Looking at his back, a bitter smile appeared on Madeline’s dry lips. She mumbled softly.

“Jeremy, if I really don’t deserve it, why did you make that promise back then?”

Madeline was on time for her check-up at the hospital. Naturally, her body had weakened from her last check up.

Ava was worried sick. She told Madeline to abort the baby again, but the latter only smiled. “Ava, can you go somewhere with me?”

The wind on the beach in the early winter felt like knives against their cheeks.

Ava did not know why Madeline had asked to come here. When she was about to ask her, Madeline said, “Ava, I have a request. If I don’t make it, I hope you’ll throw my ashes into this sea.”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 25
When Ava heard this, she became worried. “Madeline, Crawford, what on earth are you saying?”

“I’m serious.” Madeline smiled lightly. She looked at the azure ocean in front of her, and the beautiful memories resurfaced in her head once again.

“This is where Jeremy and I pledged our love to each other,” she said before quickly correcting herself, “Or rather, this is where my one-sided love began.”

Ava was stunned. Then, her brain registered what was going on. “So this is the place where you first met each other.”

Madeline nodded and closed her eyes. The sunlight shone down on her round but bony face. “Back then, he told me, ‘Linnie, when we grow up, I’ll take you as my bride’.”

Madline said before slowly reopening her eyes. Subsequently, tears escaped her eyes and silently rolled down her cheeks.

Ava was furious. “All men are liars! Jeremy knew how to lie to girls at such a young age; you even fell into his trap!”

“Yeah, I thought he was sincere. Not only did I think that, but I even thought that he was serious.”

“Maddie, just give up. That man is not worth your love,” Ava advised. She felt sad at the thought of how invested Madeline was in him.

However, Madeline smiled. “Ava, it has been 12 years. I can’t let him go.”

Her love for him was bone deep. It was in her every breath.

How could it be easy for her to just let him go?

“So, you’re willing to sacrifice your life for that man?”

After Ava said that, an icy gust of wind howled, and its coldness spreaded throughout Madeline’s heart.

“As long as he’s happy.”

She had lost herself ever since she fell for him when she first saw him.

“Maddie, I don’t think I’ll have the chance to give birth to the child.”

Madeline bent down and picked up a shell. Memories flooded her brain, and she smiled.

“I won’t have the chance to pester him anymore. He should end up happy. I’ll be happy too because I’ll be with my baby. I’ll be buried in the sea with that beautiful memory forever and ever…”

Ava looked at Madeline. She did not know what to say.

Ava still saw happiness in Madeline’s face at a time like this. How stupid was she? How much did she love that heartless man to make her think that she would be happy even in death?

After parting ways with Ava, Madeline went home.

When she arrived at the door, she saw Daniel waiting for her. When he saw her, he walked over to her with a worried look on his face. “Maddie, why didn’t you answer my calls? Are you okay?”

Madeline was touched that Danile was so concerned about her, but she had not forgotten what Jeremy had said to her. When she was about to say something, Jeremy appeared.

He got out of the car. He was wearing all black and looked terrifying. “Daniel, we haven’t seen each other for so many years, and you’re still longing for my wife, huh?”

His tone was mischievous, but it was obvious that he was being sarcastic.

Madeline felt humiliated, and at the same time, angry for Daniel. “Dan and I are innocent. Mr. Whitman, please respect your wife and your old classmate.”

After she said that, she felt a cold air around her.

“Wife? You still remember that you’re my wife? Then why are you still talking with your old flame at my front door?”

The man’s question made Madeline weary. She did not want to explain herself anymore, but she did not want to involve Daniel in it. “Jeremy, I’ll tell you once more. For the last time, I’ve only had one man my entire life and it’s you!”

After she yelled at Jeremy hysterically, she turned around and ran back into the house.

After a while, Jeremy entered the house as well.

His face was dark, and there was a layer of ice on him.

Madeline thought that Jeremy would humiliate her again. However, he said to her in an oddly calm manner, “Madeline, let’s talk.”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 26
Madeline was surprised by Jeremy’s attitude. However, she did not try to flatter him like she used to. She calmly asked, “What do you want to talk about, Mr. Whitman?”

Jeremy was unhappy with how Madeline was addressing him that way. “What did you call me?”

“Is there any difference? You never pay attention to me anyway, Mr. Whiteman.”

Jeremy frowned. After a few moments of silence, he said, “Mer’s stomach is getting bigger and bigger. I want to give her status.”

Even though Madeline knew Jeremy would force her to divorce him one day, it still felt like a bolt from the blue now that it was happening.

Madeline looked at the frigid man in front of her. She laughed in self-mockery. “What about me?”

She asked. All of a sudden, she felt like she and the baby in her stomach were the biggest jokes in the world.

Jeremy’s intense and piercing gaze landed on Madeline’s face. “If you remain obedient, we can stay this way.”

Madeline burst out laughing after being dazed. “Mr. Whitman, are you saying that you want your legally wedded wife to become your mistress? You want that shameless mistress to be in my position, is that it?”

After she said that, Jeremy’s face turned so dark that it looked horrifying.

Madeline felt a pang of pain in her heart. She bit her lip and clenched her fists. “Jeremy, unless I die, I won’t let that two-faced b*tch Meredith get her way!”

After Madeline said that, she turned around and went upstairs to lock herself in her room.

Her heart was beating frantically. She was so scared that she would beg him to not divorce her if she were slightly slower.

After all, she had never changed her wish. As long as she could stay with him, she would be happy and satisfied.

However, his heartlessness was way beyond her imagination despite him having promised that he would stay with her forever.

Madeline moved out. She did not dare face Jeremy. She was scared that he would hand her the divorce papers once more. Not to mention, she was also scared that he would try to do everything he could to kill the baby in her stomach for Meredith’s sake.

She had thought that Jeremy would ask about her after she moved out. However, a few days passed, and he never called her. It was obvious that he had not been home for those few days.

He must have been with Meredith, living their best lives.

At the thought of this, Meredith looked at the rings she had drafted. Consequently, her vision became blurry.

Back then, she had accepted the order from a client. They had asked her to create a pair of matching rings.

When she first started having feelings for Jeremy, she had had this pair of rings in her mind.

She had imagined meeting him once more, falling in love, and eventually getting married. Then, he would put the ring she had designed herself on her own ring finger by himself. Nonetheless, at the end of the day, that promise turned into ashes.

Madeline wiped away her tears and recomposed herself to continue working on her draft. However, she received a call from the psychiatric hospital where her only family member in the world was living.

She rushed over, and the nurse told her that her grandfather had cancer; it was lung cancer.

It was treatable but required very expensive surgery.

Madeline sliced an apple for Len Samuels and handed it to him. “Grandpa, have an apple.”

Even though Len was mentally-ill, he looked benevolent and kind. He took the apple from Madeline. “Eveline, you’re here.”

Madeline nodded and smiled. Eveline was her real name. As for her surname, she had no idea.

Ever since she could remember, she had no parents. She only had a mentally-ill grandfather.

Madeline had thought that she would be the one mourning for her grandfather when he returned to the maker. However, from the looks of the current situation, she would leave before Len.

Madeline checked the price for the surgery and found that she needed about three hundred thousand dollars to treat second stage lung cancer.

Seeing the number, the light in Madeline’s eyes slowly began to fade away. She felt as if her heart was being trapped by a net. It only became tighter and tighter, making it harder for her to breathe.

Three hundred thousand dollars. How would she get so much money?

Nonetheless, when she thought about her grandfather passing away because she did not have enough money for his treatment, tears blurred her vision. The pain of losing a loved one was so suffocating that it made it hard for her to breathe.

Nevertheless, the expensive cost of treatment made Madeline fall into another state of despair. Eventually, when she was about to lose all hope, she remembered Jeremy.

He was her only hope.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 27
Madeline went to look for Jeremy immediately. The man looked as refined as always. He was sitting at his desk reading a few documents; he did not even lift his head.

When he heard that Madeline wanted to loan three hundred thousand from him, he burst out laughing. “Madeline, money is just a number for me. However, I won’t give you a single cent.”

Madeline gritted her teeth and continued pleading, “My grandpa has lung cancer, and he needs the money for his treatment. Jeremy, please, loan me the money. I’ll definitely pay you back.”

“Pay me back? With what?” He knew she did not have the ability to pay him back. However, he suddenly said, “I can loan you the money, but you have to agree to what I asked that day.”

Madeline clenched the corner of her shirt.

He wanted Meredith to take her position. Consequently, she would become his mistress.

Madeline suppressed the pain in her heart. She tried her best to stay calm. “Jeremy, aside from that, I can agree to anything.”

Jeremy slammed his documents shut and stood up. His eyes were icy. “Aside from that, don’t even think about getting a single cent.”

When Madeline saw that he was about to leave, she no longer cared about anything. She grabbed his arm. “Jeremy, please help my grandpa. We can’t delay his treatment.”

Jeremy chuckled lowly. There was no warmth in his eyes. “So what? What does that have to do with me?”

Madeline felt a chill on her back. All of a sudden, the man in front of her looked oddly foreign and cold-blooded.

As Madeline’s mind wandered, she felt pain in her chin. When she came back to her senses, her eyes were met with Jeremy’s sinister eyes. His eyes and eyebrows looked delicate; however, there was sense of mockery in them.

“For the sake of Mer, I’ll give you an alternative. Since you want money so much, you can sell your body. Three hundred thousand dollars shouldn’t be a problem with your face.”

He pushed her away and walked away carefreely.

His icy words hammered on Madeline’s heart. The tumor in her body started to act up once more.

She pressed on where the tumor was and took out a painkiller before swallowing it.

The man’s cold words were still ringing in her ears as she tried her best to swallow her tears. Madeline gritted her teeth and stood up.

He was right. Under the current circumstances, she could only sell her body for her grandfather.

However, she neither entertained customers nor sold her body.

Instead, she walked into every private room in the nightclub with red wine that had been given to her by the manager.

The customers who visited the place were pretty generous, especially when they were faced with beautiful girls.

Madeline normally did not put on any makeup or doll herself up. She always looked clean and simple. However, that night, she was different from her usual self.

The customers looked at Madeline’s pretty face that resembled nature itself and spent their money on her willingly.

Madeline only had one last bottle of wine in her hands. The manager saw that she was pretty good at it, so he gave her the most expensive alcohol in the shop and then sent her to the VIP room. He told her that the richest customers were all in that room. If she sold that bottle, she would receive one hundred thousand dollars as commission.

The number swayed Madeline. Thus, despite feeling unwell and reluctant to go, when she thought that her grandfather would be able to receive treatment soon, she swallowed a painkiller and went.

Nonetheless, the moment she opened the door, she saw a face that made her heart skip a beat.

Jeremy was leaning against the sofa lazily. He looked cold and conceited like a monarch. He had a domineering air to him that elicited fear in people’s hearts.

At the same time, Meredith was also in the room.

Madeline had not expected Jeremy to be the richest customer that night.

Her body initially felt numb when she took the painkiller. However, it was starting to hurt.

Madeline did not want to humiliate herself, so she decided to leave.

“Madeline, I didn’t expect you to sell yourself for real.” The man’s cold voice was laced with mockery. Madeline’s bones ached when she heard that. The next instant, Meredith walked up to her.

“Maddie, it’s you! Why are you here?”

Madeline wanted to puke when she saw Meredith’s hypocritical face. “I’m different from you guys. You guys have come here to have fun, while I’m here to make money.”

“Make money? Madeline, why have you become so depraved? Aren’t you simply embarrassing Jeremy by doing this? You can tell me if you need money. How can you sell your body?”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 28
Sell her body?

Madeline had never said that she was there to sell her body, yet Meredith assumed as such immediately.

There was an ominous glint in Jeremy’s cold yet domineering eyes. It was getting more and more terrifying. He looked like Satan who had just ascended from hell. He wanted to rip Madeline into pieces very badly.

She had really come to sell herself.

She could accept every man on earth for money!

She had even boasted that she had had only him so shamelessly before.

How cheap.

“Maddie, listen to me. Go home. If not, Jeremy will be mad. I won’t be able to hold him back when that happens.”

Madeline was disgusted by Meredith’s soft and gentle tone.

She looked at Meredith while feeling amused. “Home? Do I still have a home? Isn’t my home being dominated by a shameless mistress like you?”

Meredith looked awkward. The corner of her lips twitched, and she looked at Jeremy aggrievedly. “Jeremy, don’t be mad at Maddie. It’s all my fault. It’s my fault for falling head over heels for you. It’s all my fault.”

It was such a bitchy and hypocritical act, but Jeremy still walked over and held Meredith like he was blind.

“You dummy, how is it your fault? The person I’ve been in love with all this time is you. The person who’s at fault is this wishful thinking woman who shamelessly climbed into my bed.”

‘The person I’ve been in love with all this time is you.’

When Jeremy said this, Madeline felt as if her heart was recklessly being trampled over.

Hehe.

When had Meredith become the girl he loved this whole time?

Why did she remember the boy in her memory who had told her with his back against the sunset, ‘Linnie, meeting you is the luckiest thing that has ever happened to me. I like you the most.’?

Madeline felt extremely sad. Not only was her heart breaking, but the tumor that could take her life at any time was also hurting immensely for some unknown reason.

She did not want to look at this eyesore of a sight. However, just as she was about to leave, she ran into someone.

She was in a daze, so she was not holding the bottle in her hand properly. Consequently, the bottle of red wine that cost a few million dollars fell onto the floor and made a loud sound.

Madeline’s face turned white. All of a sudden, someone grabbed her wrist and dragged her out.

“Maddie, long time no see.”

The man’s chuckle sounded in her ear, and Madeline flinched reflexively.

She lifted her head and saw a nauseating face.

It was Madeline’s old flame, Tanner Long. He had assailed her with obscenities before and even forced her to sleep with him. Meredith was there when it happened. She had watched everything take place with a smile on her face.

Now, Meredith’s face was filled with shock. “Sir, I know you. You’re Maddie’s ex-boyfriend. I remember you always staying the night at Maddie’s old place.”

After she said that, the temperature around them dropped to zero.

Madeline felt that it was ridiculous. Since when had Tanner become her ex-boyfriend?

“Maddie, it has been so long since we last saw each other. Now that we’ve run into each other, let’s rekindle our relationship.” Tanner was cooperating with Meredith. His smirk was demonic and egotistical. He rudely pulled Madeline into his arms. Madeline could not fight against him. She was in immense pain, so she could not break free of Tanner’s hold.

“Let go of me!” She struggled with all her might.

“Maddie, what’s wrong with you? You weren’t like this when you were with me. Did I not give you enough? Two hundred? What about two hundred this time? I always gave you a hundred back then.”

“Shut up! Tanner, shut up! I don’t know…”

“How could you not know me? We were so close to each other. I still remember that you have a mole on your left breast!”

Before Madeline could finish talking, she was interrupted by Tanner.

He was able to point out a characteristic of her body. It was as if he had confirmed his past relationship with Madeline.

However, at this moment, Meredith had a surprised look on her face as she exclaimed, “Oh my gosh! Maddie, this guy isn’t your ex-boyfriend? He gave you money every time you guys did that? Doesn’t that mean you were selling your body for money? Maddie, how could you do that to yourself? You can sleep with any man as long as they pay you a hundred dollars!”

Madeline felt disgusted. She wanted to refute Meredith, but she felt a sudden intense pain at the place where the tumor was, and she could not say anything.

Her silence only seemed like tacit approval to Jeremy.

Before this, there was Daniel. Now, there was Tanner.

How many men did this woman have?

The veins on Jeremy’s forehead begna to protrude, and he felt disgusted.

“Jeremy, why is Maddie like this? I feel so horrible.” Meredith looked disappointed, and it was as if she felt sorry for Madeline. “Jeremy, let’s go. I want to be alone for a while.”

Jeremy’s cold eyes glanced at Madeline, and he merely allowed Meredith to take him away while holding his arm.

“Jeremy… It isn’t like that…”

Madeline could not make any noise due to the pain. She looked at Jeremy’s back in despair. The latter glanced at her; his eyes were filled with disdain and disgust.

He believed what Tanner and Meredith had said. He believed that she was a cheap woman who was able to sell her body for money.

Madeline was dragged into a private room by Tanner. He had always lusted after Madeline but never had the chance.

Now that he was there, of course, he would not let his chance go.

Madeline wanted to run, but she was dragged back by him and thrown to the floor. The broken glass shards from not long ago cut open her palms, and blood began to spill from them. The sharp pain caused her to tremble all over. In addition with the pain from her tumor, Madeline struggled to stand up from the double dose of torture.
In her memory, Jeremy had frantically carried her to the clinic after her foot was sliced open by glass shards.

He had even said, ‘Linnie, from now on, I’ll always protect you.’

Nevertheless, she was now bleeding profusely now, and he had abandoned her.

What had happened back then was now a massive joke.

Madeline endured the debilitating pain and climbed to the door of the room. Tanner pulled her back easily and ripped away her clothes lustfully. Then, he pressed himself against her.

Just when Madeline began to think that she would not be able to escape, the door of the room was kicked open.

Jeremy noticed that Tanner was trapping Madeline under him, and immediately charged over after picking up a bottle of wine on the table. Subsequently, he smashed it against Tanner’s head.

Tanner was in shock. He clutched his head and wailed in pain.

Jeremy grabbed Madeline in her dishevelled state and brought her back to their home.

Madeline’s hands were covered in blood after having been sliced open by glass shards. In addition to the speeding car and Jeremy’s tuggings, Madeline felt unwell. She felt as if she were going to split into half.

On the other hand, Jeremy was acting as if he had been possessed. He laid Madeline in the bathtub and sprayed water on her.

Madeline struggled. She felt like she was about to suffocate as water rushed into her nose and mouth.

“Madeline, why are you so impatient? You started doing such things with a man the moment I left! I’ve never seen someone as cheap as you!”

Jeremy was livid as he grabbed the back of her neck.

“And you have the nerve to say that I’m the only man you’ve ever had! Who else is there aside from Daniel and that tramp just now?”

Madeline felt as if she was going to die. However, the pain on her body was nothing compared to the words he had just said to her.

“You can sleep with any man for just one or two hundred dollars, and you’re still pretending like you don’t ;t want to become my mistress. Madeline, you disgust me.”

‘Madeline, you disgust me.’

His words of disgust felt like a million arrows to her heart. They had all been aimed at her already heavily damaged heart.

He believed Meredith’s words so much that he would not even give her the chance to explain herself.

The icy water rushed into her mouth and nose. She was beginning to drown. However, she suddenly did not want to struggle anymore.

Wouldn’t it be nice if she just died like this?

Nevertheless, just when Madeline closed her eyes in despair, Jeremy pulled her up and threw her to the floor.

Madeline was like a broken rag doll. Soaking wet, she curled up on the floor lifelessly.

The tumor in her body was extremely painful. It was so painful that even breathing made her suffer. Nonetheless, she lifted her head unbendingly.

“I don’t know that man. Jeremy, why won’t you believe what I say…”

“Why should I believe a sinister and cruel woman like you?”

Jeremy grabbed Madeline’s collar angrily. The mole on her left breast was showing through her tattered clothes. When Jeremy recalled what Tanner said, his deep eyes became filled with iciness and deviousness.

He ripped Madeline’s clothes into pieces in his rage.

He was like a tyrant who had lost his mind and was violently punishing her.

Aside from pain, Madeline would not feel anything else.

She saw how Jeremy was looking at her, and his brutal aura made her tremble in fear.

Madeline took in a sharp breath. She felt as if her bones were going to be crushed as well. “Jeremy, no…”

“Madeline, why are you still pretending? Don’t you like this kind of thing? I’ll fulfill your wishes.” Jeremy’s deep and alluring voice was taunting her.

When it ended, he threw a wad of hundred dollar bills at Madeline’s face. He was treating her like a woman who had sold her body.

The blood in Madeline’s body froze instantly. Nevertheless, she got up unbendingly. “Jeremy, I am your wife!”

The man slowly put on his clothes and looked at her in contempt. “How could I have a shameless wife who climbs into the bed of every man?”

Hiss.

Each and every one of his words hammered on her heart.

“If it weren’t for Mer, you’d be lying in the hospital.”

“Pfft.” Madeline burst out laughing. “Right, it’s all thanks to that two-faced b*tch. She was the one who made me this way.”

Jeremy stopped turning around. His cold hands grabbed the back of Madeline’s neck, and he pulled her toward him.

“If you dare slander Meredith again, I’ll make sure that old man in the psychiatric hospital will never receive treatment regardless of the hospital or even if you have money!”

Madeline’s heart sank. Jeremy felt pleased when he saw her expression change. “Scared, huh? Madeline, let me tell you, this is just the start! I’ll make you suffer if you dare plot against me and bully Meredith!”

After he warned her, he kicked her away mercilessly.

With a loud thud, Madeline fell from the bed with her body covered in wounds.

She did not have the energy to get up. She could only allow the intense pain in her body continue to torture her.

Nevertheless, she knew she could not give up so easily. She still had her child and a grandfather who needed her.

The next day, Madeline woke up on the floor. She got a call from the manager of the nightclub in her drowsy state. The manager was firm. He insisted Madeline compensate for the wine that she had wasted.

Madeline did not have that much money. Plus, she needed money for Len’s surgery. Without any other option, Madeline signed a certificate of indebtedness.

In one night, not only did she have to bear a debt of five hundred thousand dollars, but she had to fork out three hundred thousand dollars for the surgery. Madeline felt as if the sky was falling.

However, her current situation would not allow her to back down. She finished the ring designs she had drafted and sent them to the client in hopes that they would pay her soon. On the other hand, she accepted a few more orders with much lower prices.

Furthermore, someone from the upper management of a jewelry company seemed to be very fond of Madeline’s designs. So, they invited her to their office to have a talk.

Before their meeting, Madeline took a painkiller. She was worried that her tumor would hurt when the time came.

After she met the executive in the meeting room, Madeline was slightly shocked.
