Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 721-730

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 721
Jeremy had never seen Madeline like this.

She was trapping him against the wall. At this moment, her eyes were so soft and she looked so enchanting. His rationale was slowly slipping away the more he looked at her beauty.

“Linnie,” he called out her name as his Adam’s apple bobbed.

Madeline was not thinking clearly and she felt as if a flame was crawling up her body.

She was longing for water, longing to soothe this heat inside of her.

The person in front of her might be able to help her.

She got closer to him and looked into his eyes. Their breaths started intertwining.

Jeremy caressed her long hair. His narrow eyes were so soft, looking like pools of water. “Linnie…”

“Yeah,” Madeline replied. To Jeremy, this was the best reply he could expect to hear from her.

He could not control himself anymore. He grabbed her head and pressed a kiss onto her lips.

Madeline closed her eyes without being able to control herself. She allowed this strange feeling to lead her into Jeremy’s arms…

After a night of joy.

Jeremy finally was able to have a good night’s sleep.

The first thing he did when he woke up in the morning was to look at the woman who was sleeping soundly in his arms.

Her alluring face, her eyes, her nose, and her lips were so beautiful.

Jeremy leaned down and pressed a soft kiss on Madeline’s forehead.

When he recalled what happened last night, he felt slightly remorseful.

They were naked, but they had not gotten to the final step last night.

Perhaps he could have ignored Madeline’s feelings back then, but now, he was extremely concerned about her.

He did not want to take advantage of her when she was at her most vulnerable and he did not want anything to happen between them when she was not in the right state of mind.

He was scared that Madeline would hate him more when she woke up and found out he did something unspeakable to her when she was drugged.

Despite Madeline kissing him, hugging him, and nuzzling against him last night, he still suppressed his primal urges and carried her into the bathtub for a cold bath.

Even though it was a pity, he did not regret it.

He was more than happy to be able to do this with her.

Jeremy thought about this and held Madeline’s shoulder. “Linnie, I’m so happy to be able to share the same bed with you,” he muttered softly when suddenly, he felt the person in his arms moving.

He was worried that Madeline would be unhappy if she saw him after she woke up, so he got out of the bed quietly to clean himself up in the bathroom.

After that, Madeline woke up slowly. When she opened her eyes, she realized she was wearing a loose bathroom in a strange bed. However, her sharp sense of smell detected a familiar scent.

This was Jeremy’s scent and it was still lingering around her.

Madeline’s heartbeat sped up as she recalled what happened last night.

She figured that she was drunk, so Felipe brought her back to his place. However, after that, she only remembered being with Jeremy.

It seemed that she had even voluntarily kissed him.

Madeline’s face heated up when she thought about that.

Why would she do something like that?

She did not understand what was going on. Then, as she got out of the bed, she turned her head to see Jeremy walking out of the bathroom right after he cleaned himself up.

The morning light shone down on his charming face. He looked at her with a grin, “Linnie, you’re awake.”

“…” Madeline was taken aback. She could not make the temperature of her face go down.

She nodded and walked past Jeremy to go into the bathroom.

She washed her face with cold water and tried to remember what happened last night. However, her memories were extremely fragmented.

She only remembered pouncing onto Jeremy, and she lost all memories after that.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 722
‘Did I do it with him?’

Madeline felt her ears heat up. Suddenly, she saw a suspicious mark on her neck when she looked into the mirror.

After she finished cleaning herself up, she saw a note that Jeremy left. There was only a simple sentence: [Linnie, I’m going to send Jack to school. You can stay here and sleep for a bit.]

He did not mention anything about last night and sounded natural.

Madeline looked at the note Jeremy left and started spacing out.

She looked at his neat handwriting and suddenly, she remembered the confession she saw on the notebook in the restaurant near Glendale University. [Madeline Crawford, I like you.]

Now, Madeline realized that Jeremy was the one who left the anonymous note.

He had already taken a liking to her when she was in her first year.

However, he hid his fondness toward her.

When Meredith impersonated her, he could only stop himself from pursuing her because of the promise he made in his childhood.

Madeline left the hotel, and when she stepped out of the building, she received a call from Felipe.

He asked her about what happened last night. Then, he also told her that Jeremy forcefully took her away after she got drunk and how he was extremely worried.

Drunk.

Madeline knew something was wrong with those two glasses of red wine.

It was impossible for her to feel like that after two drinks.

At this moment, Felipe was enjoying his breakfast in the yard. Suddenly, someone came and told him that Madeline was here.

He lowered his head to ponder, then when he lifted his head again, he saw Madeline walking toward him.

He placed his cutlery down and smiled at Madeline. He still retained his gentlemanly demeanor.

“Eveline, it’s great that you’re okay.” He sighed a breath of relief. “I was so worried when Jeremy barged into my place and took you away from me forcefully.”

Madeline let him finish before asking, “Felipe, was I really drunk last night?”

After she asked that, Madeline could see an ominous glint in Felipe’s eyes. However, he acted extremely calm and composed.

“It’s a new wine, so you might not be used to it and that’s why you got drunk so easily.” He gave her such an explanation.

Madeline smiled, her eyes looking like voids. “Is that so?”

“I think so,” Felipe replied and walked in front of her. “Eveline, too many things have been happening recently and I want to take you somewhere to clear your head.”

“Alright, I want to go somewhere with you as well.”

Felipe beamed when Madeline agreed to it.

However, he was not stupid. He could sense something amiss in Madeline’s tone.

She was suspecting him.

On the other side.

After Jeremy sent Jackson to the kindergarten, he went to Montgomery Manor for his daughter.

Eloise was playing in the garden with the little girl. When she saw him, Lillian wobbled over to him happily. “Handsome Mister, come and play with Lily!”

The little girl blinked her huge eyes, her blushing cheeks looking extremely adorable.

Jeremy picked her up and greeted Eloise before leaving with her in his arms.

Eloise felt that this was strange.

Eveline said that Lillian was Felipe’s child, but why was she so close to Jeremy?

Jeremy brought Lillian to the park and bought her some beautiful dresses. After that, he also brought her to a dessert shop.

Even though Lillian had given him the nickname of ‘Handsome Mister’, for Jeremy, it was another form of blessing.

If he wanted to mention something that upset him, it would be Madeline not talking to him for the entire day. She did not reply to his messages or pick up his phone calls.

Inside the dessert shop, Jeremy was lining up to buy Lillian’s favorite cake. He would occasionally look at Lillian who was waiting for him on the sofa.

Lillian was staring at Jeremy the entire time, but at this moment, a figure wandered into Lillian’s vision.

The little girl blinked and beamed. Then, she jumped down from the sofa and ran toward the crowd.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 723
Jeremy was finally at the front of the line. When he was about to order, he noticed that Lillian was missing after he turned around.

He looked around the shop but did not see her anywhere. Immediately, Jeremy’s heart started beating erratically.

He asked everyone in the shop before a man told him that he saw a pretty little girl running out the door herself just now.

That little girl was wearing a light blue dress and her features were stunning.

Jeremy was sure that it was Lillian.

However, why did she run out on her own?

He then ran to check the security footage of the shop. He saw the little girl running out on her own, and it looked like she was running toward something.

Unfortunately, the security cameras in the shop could only cover a limited area, so Jeremy could not see what was going on outside the shop.

He ran to get all of the footage from the cameras around him, but he still did not find anything.

He had lost his daughter when she was under his care and needed to bear this responsibility.

He could not stay calm. The girl was still so young, and sometimes, she could not even express herself. She would not even know how to scream for help if she ran into bad people.

Jeremy was frantic. He could not calm himself down to think properly. His usual calm demeanor started cracking under pressure.

Back then, he could not protect the woman he loved, and now, he could not even watch his own daughter.

He called the cops and the police immediately found all of the security footage nearby, but strangely, none of the footage showed Lillian.

It was as if this child had evaporated into thin air, vanishing the moment she stepped out of the shop.

After Eloise and Sean knew about this, they asked the people around them to start looking. However, they did not receive any news about her.

Jeremy knew he could not hide or delay this anymore. He did not plan to hide this either.

However, Madeline was still not picking up her phone after he called her.

Lillian had disappeared mysteriously and Jeremy was about to lose his mind from this. Now, he could not even contact Madeline. He was unable to stay still and wait for a reply, so he went to the kindergarten to look for Jackson.

However, Madeline’s red dot on the GPS disappeared as well.

In an equine park in the suburbs, Madeline was riding around the park with grandeur. On the other hand, Felipe was following behind her.

After they stopped, Felipe walked to Madeline. “Eveline, do you have something to say to me?”

Madeline had agreed to go out with Felipe, but it was not to clear her head. She wanted to talk and discuss some things with Felipe openly. Hence, she did not beat around the bush. She said frankly, “Yes, Felipe, I need to talk to you about something.”

Felipe nodded as if he had already expected this. “I know what you want to talk to me about.”

Madeline looked at him curiously. “You know what I want to talk to you about?”

Felipe smiled, and there was a sincere apology on his handsome face. “I’m sorry, Eveline. You weren’t drunk last night. I drugged your wine with something tasteless and colorless. It’s a kind of drug that’ll make someone lose their minds and want to have an intimate relationship with the opposite sex,” he told her honestly.

Madeline was not surprised as she had already figured this out after she sobered up.

“Why did you do that?” Madeline asked calmly, yet her heart was conflicted.

After Felipe gave a harsh warning to Jeremy behind her back, she felt that this elegant nobleman had a lot of sides that she had not seen just yet.

Felipe looked at her with grim eyes. “Eveline, are you planning to not go back to F Country with me? You’re not planning to carry out our promise and be my bride after you seek your revenge, right?”

His question challenged Madeline.

Felipe knew her answer when he captured the silence in her eyes.

He looked forward dispiritedly. “You’re in love with him again. You’re in love with the man who made you wish you were dead.”

When Felipe said this, an ominous glint appeared in his eyes.

He lowered his head to look at his watch, his eyes darkening.

‘Eveline, since you’ve chosen Jeremy, then please forgive me for what’s about to happen.’

He rode his horse forward as he thought about it.

“Felipe, let’s go back to F Country next week.”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 724
Felipe was looking at the time on his watch when he heard Madeline say that to him.

He turned around to look at her in disbelief. “Eveline?”

Madeline rode her horse closer to him and smiled softly. “It’s decided, then. We’ll go back to F Country next week with Lily so that we can live a happy life with just the three of us.”

Felipe was obviously taken aback by Madeline’s answer.

She was agreeing to go back to F Country with him.

The three of them.

That statement went to the deepest part of his heart.

However…

He watched as she rode away with her horse, and his expression changed. After that, he quickly took out his phone and called a number, but the person on the other end did not pick up.

Felipe did not hesitate before calling Cathy.

After Cathy received his call, she knew that Felipe wanted her to do something for him. Even though she was curious, she still did it.

Madeline rode into the distance with her horse.

She recalled the events that happened over the past few days and felt that it was time to put an end to this.

“You’re in love with him again. You’re in love with the man who made you wish you were dead.”

What Felipe said to her just now lingered in her ears.

She grabbed the reins and took a deep breath.

She could not forget that Felipe was the one who saved her life.

Plus, they even had a daughter together.

Also, she had promised him to stay with him and be his bride.

When she took all these things into consideration, she no longer had a reason to reject him.

As for Jeremy…

When Madeline thought of this man, she slowed down her horse. She looked forward quietly as her eyes twinkled.

Half an hour later, Madeline returned to the equine park and saw Felipe making a call. It seemed like it was something urgent as he had a solemn expression on his face.

Felipe hung up the phone immediately when he saw Madeline.

His smile was like the warm spring breeze. “Eveline, go take a shower. I’ve booked a table at a restaurant so that we can go grab a bite later.”

“Okay.” Madeline nodded.

She took a shower and changed. Then, she noticed that her phone had run out of battery when she got into Felipe’s car.

After charging her phone, she saw that there were more than ten missed calls and they were all from Jeremy.

Madeline felt that something was wrong. When she was about to call him back, she saw a message from Jeremy telling her that Lily was missing.

“Lily’s missing?” Madeline’s heart started beating erratically.

Felipe looked at her in puzzlement. “Eveline, what did you say?”

“Felipe, Lily is missing.”

“Isn’t she with her grandma? How can she go missing all of a sudden?” he asked, looking at Madeline’s concerned and worried face. He held her hand. “Don’t worry, our daughter will be fine.”

Felipe comforted her, but there was a calmness in his eyes.

Montgomery Manor.

Jeremy was waiting restlessly for Madeline. When he saw Felipe with her, he felt repulsed.

The two men looked at each other as sparks started flying silently.

“What’s going on? Where did she go missing?” Madeline asked frantically.

When Jeremy was about to say something, two policemen walked into the house hurriedly. “We’ve found the missing little girl. However, you need to prepare yourself as she’s showing no signs of life.”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 725
Madeline felt a sharp pain in her heart when she heard that.

Her vision went black and she fell to one side lifelessly.

“Linnie!” Jeremy ran over and supported Madeline who had already fainted. At this moment, he was just like Madeline. He was in so much pain that he could not breathe.

His baby. His and Madeline’s daughter was dead?

Jeremy was holding Madeline, and at that moment, he felt as if he had lost all of his senses. His body was plunged into the cold.

“Sir, w-what are you talking about? My granddaughter is showing no signs of life?” Eloise asked in disbelief.

The police nodded firmly with regret. “Yes, the little girl is dead.”

“No!” Eloise and Sean could not accept this news.

On the other hand, this news broke the elegance and calmness on Felipe’s face. “Did you investigate thoroughly? How can my daughter just die like that?”

Jeremy looked at Felipe. He did not want to argue about who was Lillian’s real father at this moment.

The thing he wanted to know the most right now was what happened to Lillian.

After Madeline regained consciousness, the group of them followed the police to the outskirts of town.

Madeline spotted Lillian lying on a stretcher on a patch of yellow grass.

The little girl looked like she was just asleep. She looked so serene, but she was not breathing anymore.

Madeline walked over slowly as tears blurred her vision.

However, before she could get close, her legs gave out and she collapsed on the floor.

Jeremy ran over to help Madeline who had crumpled to the floor. “Linnie, Linnie, don’t cry. Don’t be scared. I’ll go. Let me go.”

He comforted Madeline as his own heart was breaking into a million pieces. However, after he said that, he was pushed away by Felipe.

“Jeremy, don’t be pretentious. Linnie is my woman and Lily is my daughter. If Lily is really dead, then you’re the murderer!”

Felipe accused Jeremy of this crime. Then, he helped the limp Madeline over to the stretcher.

When Madeline got close to Lily, her tears escaped from her eyes like a burst dam.

She removed herself from Felipe’s grip and knelt next to Lillian. She caressed her sleeping face with trembling fingers but could only feel coldness under her fingertips. The coldness traveled all the way to the bottom of her heart and spread to every cell of her body.

“Lily,” Madeline called out softly, the child’s face becoming blurrier through her tears.

“Why did this happen? Why?”

She doubled over in pain and held the lifeless little girl tightly. The debilitating pain was gnawing on her consciousness.

“Lillian, why did you leave Mommy? Please don’t leave Mommy, okay? Lillian… Didn’t you want me to take you and Jack to the pirate ship in the amusement park? I’ll take you tomorrow, okay? Don’t go to sleep, Lillian…”

Jeremy’s heart was in so much pain when he saw this.

He did not want to accept this. He could not forgive himself. His flesh and blood had left this earth forever because of his negligence.

Jeremy’s eyes were red and he was sobbing so hard that his throat started to hurt.

He walked over to see Lillian for the last time. However, Felipe charged over and grabbed his collar. His eyes were filled with flames of malice.

“Jeremy, you just can’t bear to see Eveline living a good life, huh? You killed Eveline once and now you can’t even leave her child alone. How can you be so cold-blooded?”

Jeremy grabbed Felipe’s hand, his gaze even sharper than Felipe’s.

“I never wanted to kill Lily. She’s also my daughter!”

“Your daughter?” Felipe scoffed. “That’s my daughter!”

“Felipe, you can fool everyone but you can’t fool me. Lillian is my daughter!” Jeremy insisted that he was Lillian’s birth father.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 726
Felipe’s eyes glinted, and when he was about to say something, Madeline quickly walked over from behind him.

Jeremy looked at Madeline. “Linnie…”

Slap!

Madeline slapped Jeremy heavily across the face.

Jeremy’s face was turned to the side from the slap and the excruciating pain crept into his heart.

Madeline glared at Jeremy with tears in her eyes. She was biting her lip tightly. “Even if you didn’t want to kill Lily, she still went missing under your care. You won’t be able to get away from this responsibility no matter what you say!”

Her eyes looked pained. “Jeremy, why do you have to make me hate you?” Madeline said before turning around. Then, Felipe chased behind her.

Jeremy did not even get to see Lilian for the last time before she was brought into the car.

After a while, everything around him plunged into silence. Jeremy stood there alone while stuck in a daze.

He had not protected the woman he loved back then and caused her to die in his arms. Today, he made the same fatal mistake again.

Jeremy could not forgive himself for his negligence. He punched a tree nearby and roared in pain. Then, he let out a wail before falling to the ground.

“Lillian…”

Lillian’s passing interrupted Madeline’s plan to go back to F Country with Felipe.

Madeline stayed in bed for a few days as she could not handle the loss. She handed Felipe the responsibility to handle Lillian’s funeral.

Whenever she thought about the little girl who looked like a little fairy when she laughed, Madeline felt that it was getting extremely hard to breathe. However, she could not even cry anymore.

Yet when Jackson asked her where Lillian was, she could not stop her tears from falling.

Half a month later, the police captured the human trafficker who had kidnapped Lillian.

That person used a toy as bait to make Lillian go with him. However, after he got Lillian, she started making a fuss and kept asking for her mother. Therefore, he strangled her to death in a fit of anger.

After Jeremy got news about that, he went to the police station and met the human trafficker.

That man knelt on the ground and begged for forgiveness. He told Jeremy that he did not mean to do that.

Jeremy looked at the human trafficker and did not fly into a fit of rage. On the contrary, he walked away calmly.

After he walked out of the station, he saw Madeline walking over with an umbrella.

It was the end of fall, and there was a light drizzle that was being carried along with the wind. The coldness would penetrate into one’s skin. It was bone-piercing.

Madeline walked past Jeremy. Her eyes were calm and she did not even look at him.

Jeremy felt a dull ache in her heart again as he reached out his hand to grab Madeline. “Linnie.”

Madeline stopped walking. Her voice was cold and there were no emotions when she spoke, “Let go.”

“Linnie, Lily’s death doesn’t seem to be so simple. That human trafficker is just a scapegoat.”

Jeremy looked at Madeline’s icy side profile and saw her turning her head slowly. Her beautiful face was covered with a layer of frost while her eyes were red and swollen.

He felt as if a knife was being stabbed into his heart. He could not bear to see her looking so devastated and haggard.

“Linnie…”

“Why did you take Lily out? Lily isn’t related to you in any way. Why did you keep looking for my daughter?” Madeline asked coldly.

“Linnie, Lily is our daughter. The reason I wanted to hang out with her is that I found out that she’s my daughter.”

Madeline looked at him with animosity and swung his hand away from hers forcefully. “Jeremy, do you think I’ll believe this ridiculous lie? I know my own child very well!”

“No, you don’t. Linnie, you lost your memory and you can’t remember anything that happened before. Felipe is just lying to you. You were never intimate with him. This whole time, you belong to me.”

Jeremy held Madeline’s shoulders as he started losing control of his emotions. Then, his eyes became solemn.

“Linnie, I’ll prove to you right now that Lily is our child.”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 727
Jeremy took out his phone hurriedly and opened the electronic copy of the paternity test result that he saved.

“Linnie, look. This is the paternity test I did with Lily. Lily is our daughter.” He held the phone in front of Madeline to prove that he was telling the truth.

Madeline lowered her eyes, her vision quickly blurred by tears.

“Linnie, do you see it?” Jeremy asked carefully.

However, the moment he finished asking, Madeline lifted her hand and pushed his hand away.

The phone fell to the wet floor with a loud smack. Then, the screen smashed into a million pieces.

Jeremy felt his heart getting smashed at the same time as well.

Madeline looked at him frigidly. “I don’t want to see you again.”

Her tone was firm, and she walked away without turning back.

Jeremy stood in place dispiritedly. As he looked at her cold back, tears escaped from the corners of his eyes.

On the smashed screen, that beautiful smile invaded his vision and pained Jeremy’s eyes.

“Lily…”

‘I’m sorry, Lily.

‘I didn’t get to protect you.’

As he blamed himself, he saw a black figure approaching him from the corner of his eyes.

“Jeremy, how dare you come here? Even though Lily was kidnapped by human traffickers, it still can’t change the fact that you killed my daughter indirectly.” Felipe pushed all the blame onto Jeremy. “If you still have an ounce of humanity, please stay away. Don’t let Eveline see you again in case she can’t stop herself from killing you.”

“Felipe, you know damn well who Lily’s birth father is,” Jeremy said with a sharp glint in his eyes. “I’ll find the real murderer who killed my daughter. Just you wait.”

He promised solemnly and walked away in the rain.

Felipe watched Jeremy’s back silently and tightened his grip on the umbrella.

After they took care of something in the station, Felipe sent Madeline back to Montgomery Manor.

He knew Madeline did not have the mood to discuss anything with him right now, so he would not force her. Then, he went back to his place alone.

Meredith had been waiting for him in the study.

When she saw Felipe, she waited for his orders patiently.

“You’ll go to F Country with the child on the flight this afternoon. Then, come back after you fix your face.” Felipe’s voice was cold and his tone was emotionless. However, he had a murderous aura around him.

Meredith did not want to go back to F Country, but she did not have the right to say no.

Cathy walked in with a cup of tea. When she saw the face that was similar to Madeline’s, she furrowed her brows together.

“Get out,” Felipe asked Meredith to leave.

Meredith walked out of the door timidly. Then, she looked at Cathy with the corner of her eyes.

Cathy placed the tea in front of Felipe. “Why did you do that? You like Evie so much. Shouldn’t you hope that she won’t be sad? Why did you—”

“It’s not your place to ask me that.” Felipe interrupted her coldly. There was a devious and dark look on his face that did not go with his handsome and elegant features. “If you want to stay by my side, you need to know your place.”

“Get out,” he then asked her to leave, refusing to look at her for even another second.

Although they had been intimate, she was still nothing to him.

Cathy turned around sadly. After closing the door, she stood by it and looked at her flat stomach.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 728
She lifted her hand to touch her stomach. Then, a pleased smile blossomed on her face.

After Cathy left, Felipe picked up the colorful shell that he had been keeping for years.

“Eveline.”

He called out to Madeline’s name as a cheeky face appeared in his mind.

He would not forget how a ray of light had appeared in his dark life after he met her by the beach.

“I won’t let you go back to Jeremy again. You’re mine.”

He held the shell as a wave of emotions appeared in his eyes.

That day, the reason he said he wanted to bring Madeline to clear her head in the equine park was to prevent her from having any contact with the outside world so that his plan would carry out smoothly.

He knew he could not hide the fact that he had drugged Madeline, so he needed to admit it.

He also knew that Madeline would not want to go back to F Country with him as he could sense that she started to develop feelings for Jeremy again. That was why he planned to create a conflict between Madeline and Jeremy by involving Lillian in an accident.

However, Madeline told him that she would go back to F Country with him out of the blue. This shocked him, but when that happened, it was already too late for him to stop his plan.

He was left with no choice but to let Madeline suffer the pain of losing a child.

From the looks of it now, it was good that he did not stop the plan. Even if Madeline refused to go back with him, at least her relationship with Jeremy was utterly destroyed.

She would not forgive him now.

She would not forgive a man who lost her most treasured child.

After Jeremy went home, he locked himself in his room and kept looking at the security footage of the dessert shop.

He suspected that Felipe was the one behind it. Since Lillian was not his daughter, that was why he was able to do it.

Plus, if no one deliberately planned this, how would it be possible that none of the cameras captured Lillian?

The only person who could do this was Felipe.

Jeremy looked at the footage again and again. As he looked at the lively and cheeky child in the video, his vision became blurry again.

His daughter. He did not even get the chance to hear her call him ‘daddy’ before she left him forever.

What hurt him more was that he could not see his daughter for the last time before she was turned into ashes.

Jeremy held a bouquet of sunflowers and came to the cemetery.

The words ‘Lillian Whitman’ on the tombstone stabbed his heart like a knife.

“Lillian.”

His fingers caressed the words on the tombstone. The cold sensation under his fingertips made him remember the time he lost Madeline.

This seemingly familiar pain felt like a net that trapped his heart, making it difficult for him to breathe.

‘Why are you here?”

He heard Madeline’s voice from behind him. He stood up after being taken aback.

He wanted to hide the moisture in his eyes but could not do it flawlessly.

Madeline looked at the flowers he placed down just now and placed the sunflowers she bought in front of the tombstone as well.

“Do you know why I named this child Lillian?”

Madeline smiled softly and looked at Jeremy with a solemn look on her face. Then, tears started pouring from her eyes.

“It’s because you gave me too many dark, cold, and painful experiences. That’s why I didn’t want my daughter to be like her mother. Her name Lily signified rebirth. I wanted her to always receive warmth from the sun. Why did she have to get into an accident when she was under your care and die in such a bitter way?”

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 729
Jeremy’s tears fell along with Madeline’s after he heard what she said.

The unbearable memories appeared in his head as his bloody past appeared right in front of his eyes. He could not get away from them.

“You should go.”

Madeline said those three words flatly. Then, she turned around so that she would not look at him.

“When Lily was trapped in the burning car and was almost burnt alive, I could tell that you genuinely wanted to save her. However, it still can’t change the fact that she died because of your negligence.

“Jeremy, I can’t forgive you and I don’t want to see you again.”

Jeremy looked at Madeline’s back and stood there for a very long time. Finally, he turned around while bearing the blame.

A gust of cold wind blew over, going straight into his heart. Then, more tears started to fall from his eyes.

Madeline stood in front of Lillian’s grave and heard Jeremy’s footsteps as he walked away.

Her eyes were red as she looked at the words on the tombstone. Then, she swallowed back her tears.

‘Lillian, at the end of the day, I still couldn’t be the perfect mother for you.

‘I was not around when you were calling out to me and wanted me to protect you.

‘I’m sorry.’

Madeline stood in front of the grave dispiritedly and faced the cold wind of fall as she endured the debilitating pain in her chest.

After Jeremy went home, he still could not forget what Madeline said to him in the cemetery and the sight of her dull gaze.

It was as if everything was back to square one after she came back to life.

Their relationship had started to get better when all his efforts went down the drain once more.

Jeremy washed his face and recomposed himself. After that, he looked back at the security footage of the dessert shop again.

He believed that there would be a loophole when it came to something that was planned.

Just as expected, he finally saw a figure reflected on the glass of the fridge in the dessert shop.

This figure was standing outside the shop, and coincidentally, their reflection was showing on the glass.

Jeremy looked closely and noticed that it was a woman. Plus, that woman was waving to the little girl.

Lily went over after the woman waved at her. It was obvious that she was not the human trafficker who was captured by the police.

After Jeremy zoomed into the footage, he saw that the woman was dressed similar to Madeline and was also wearing an English-style hat. Jeremy was unable to see her face because of it.

After Jeremy found that clue, he went to Montgomery Manor to look for Madeline.

He knew she would not pick up his calls, so he could only go straight to her.

However, when he arrived at Montgomery Manor, Eloise told him dispiritedly that Madeline had gone out to look for Felipe.

Plus, it was evident that Eloise did not want to talk to him as well.

Jeremy could understand that. Even if he was not the one behind Lillian’s death, it was a fact that she passed away under his care.

He did not hesitate before driving to Felipe’s place. However, perhaps it was because he had barged into his place before, so this time, there were more security guards in black guarding the gates.

Jeremy called Madeline, but she hung up on him.

He sent her a message telling her that he had something important to tell her, but unfortunately, she did not reply to his message.

Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 730
Time passed and the sky started to turn grey. Then, it started drizzling.

Jeremy could not wait. He got out of the car and was about to barge in when he saw Cathy walking toward him with an umbrella.

Jeremy remembered Cathy because she was the one who had shown him directions the last time.

His instinct told him that Cathy was someone he could trust.

Cathy walked in front of him and advised him, saying, “Mr. Whitman, you should go. Evie doesn’t want to see you.”

“I have to see her. I have something important to tell her.” Jeremy insisted, his gaze unflinching. “Tell her that I’ll wait for her here until she wants to see me.”

Cathy frowned as she found this difficult to manage. When she saw the resolution in Jeremy’s eyes, she felt so envious and heartbroken at the same time.

“Mr. Whitman, Evie really doesn’t want to see you. She won’t want to see you even if you wait here until nightfall.”

“Then I shall wait until nightfall.” Jeremy insisted. He lifted his head to look at the luxurious building. “I will wait here until Linnie wants to see me.”

Cathy felt that it would be useless even if she were to continue advising him, so she could only go back to the house while feeling helpless.

After a long while, Cathy went to look at Jeremy again. She saw him standing in the rain, staring straight at the building.

“If Felipe would do this for me, I wouldn’t have any regrets even if I were to die today.” She smiled and lowered her head to look at her stomach. Then, she walked into the living room on the second floor and saw Madeline sitting there drawing.

Felipe was in an online meeting in the study right now. Cathy felt that this was a rare chance for her to be alone with Madeline.

She was wondering what Madeline had that made her so charming that two near-perfect men like Jeremy and Felipe so deeply in love with her.

After walking into the room, Cathy saw that Madeline had completed a draft.

There was an angel on the paper. Cathy was taken aback when she saw the angel’s face. At the same time, she felt her heart aching.

That was Lillian’s face.

Cathy took a deep breath and walked over with a smile on her face. “Evie, this angel is so beautiful.”

Madeline’s pen stopped when she heard that. Then, she smiled softly and did a finishing touch.

“I think she’s beautiful as well.” Madeline picked up the paper, her eyes softening. “In my heart, she’s the most beautiful and most adorable little angel.”

Cathy saw that despite Madeline having a smile on her face, her eyes were wet.

She could imagine how painful Madeline’s heart must be feeling right now.

Something was stuck in her throat. She wanted to tell Madeline but did not know how.

“Is he gone?”

Suddenly, she heard Madeline ask. Cathy immediately thought of Jeremy, so she shook her head. “Mr. Whitman said he has to wait for you. It seems that he has something important to tell you.”

Madeline blinked and lifted her head to look at the rain that was getting heavier outside the window.

“Do you want to listen to him?” Cathy asked. “Maybe he really has something important to say.”

Madeline lowered her head to look at the angel on the paper and fell into deep thought. Then, she heard Cathy say, “I think he’ll keep waiting for you. He said he’ll even wait for you until nightfall… Blegh!”

Before Cathy could finish talking, she covered her face and dry-heaved.

“What’s wrong?” Madeline looked at her curiously and asked in concern. Then, she realized that Cathy’s dry heaving looked familiar.

“Eveline.”

Felipe’s voice sounded and Cathy lifted her head. Then, she saw Felipe walking over. Immediately, her expression changed.

Cathy placed her hands down and pretended that nothing happened. She stood up and smiled. “Are you done, Felipe? Then, I won’t disturb you and Evie. I’ll just… Blegh!”

Cathy started to speak when suddenly, she had an acid reflux and could not control herself. Hence, she dry-heaved in front of Felipe.
