Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 971
The moment Lana heard that, she was taken aback because she thought she misheard her.
However, Madeline’s gaze was sharp. She then pulled Lana back forcefully and kicked her on her right knee.
Lana was unprepared. With a bend of her right leg, she was now kneeling on one knee in front of Madeline.
No one expected Madeline to do this, and Lana was also dumbfounded.
However, she soon became agitated. She lifted her head to stand up, but Madeline slapped her heavily across her face out of the blue.
Lana was fuming. “Eveline, you—”
When she was about to curse and warn her, Eveline grabbed her chin domineeringly. Her cold eyes were filled with flames of revenge that enveloped Lana tightly.
“Apologize!” Madeline was glaring straight at her. Then, she took out a polaroid picture from her pocket. It was the photo she took of Eloise and Sean when they were alive. “Apologize to my parents!”
When Lana saw the photo, she understood what Madeline was saying. However, she was the second-in-command of the Stygian Johnson Gang and the little princess who was spoiled by her brother ever since she was young. How could she kneel and apologize to two dead people in public?
When the crowd around them heard that, they started gossiping among themselves.
They had read online about the fire at Montgomery Manor. Could it be that this woman who looked like a thug was related to the fire?
If not, why would Eveline be so mad and want to teach this woman a lesson?
“Eveline, let go of Lana now!” Naomi quickly ran over to demand Eveline to let go.
Madeline lifted her red eyes and looked at her coldly. “This is between me and this woman. You shouldn’t involve yourself in this. If not, don’t blame me for shifting the blame on you as well!”
“You…” Naomi wanted to help Lana, but when she saw Madeline’s stern gaze and imposing manner, she did not dare to talk back to her.
Lana gritted her teeth in anger. She wanted to stand up, but Madeline was using all her might to stop her.
“Lana, I’m asking you to apologize. Apologize to my dead parents!” Madeline demanded again.
Lana’s eyes were vicious. “Eveline, do you know what you’re doing? You’d better let go of me right now. If not, your parents won’t be the only dead ones. Your son—”
Madeline slapped Lana across the face without a second thought once again.
She was fuming as well, but at the same time, she also felt devastated.
Her eyes were red and filled with tears as they glared at Lana in resentment. “Then, I’ll let you apologize to my parents in person before you hurt my children, you she-devil!”
It was also in front of everybody!
Lana was going to explode. Then, her eyes darkened. “Eveline, I think you’re asking for death. Do you want to know what bullets taste like? I’ll let you know now!”
Lana reached into her waist, and it was clear that she was the kind of person who would bring a gun with her wherever she went.
However, Madeline was not scared. When she thought about her parents who died tragically and how the murderer was Jeremy, she felt so much pain that she wanted to end her life. At least now, she would die with Lana.
At this moment, she was not scared of death at all.
Suddenly, Jeremy walked next to Madeline and pulled away Madeline’s hand that was trapping Lana in place.
Lana’s hand froze as she touched the gun.
When Naomi saw this, she walked over to help Lana up. “Lana, are you okay?”
Lana glared at Madeline and did not say anything.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 972
However, Madeline broke down after Jeremy did that. “Jeremy, what are you doing? Let go of me! I want this woman to atone for her crimes against my parents!”
She struggled, and all of a sudden, the man pulled her domineeringly into his arms. “Linnie, don’t do this. I know you’re sad that Mom and Dad are gone, but this has nothing to do with Miss Johnson.”
Madeline was taken aback. She looked at the man who was calling her ‘Linnie’ in such a gentle voice in front of her, a look of disbelief flashing across her face.
However, Jeremy continued and held her closely, “Linnie, you’re extremely unstable now. I’ll take you home so that you can rest.”
Lana and Naomi were suspicious when they saw Jeremy behaving this way.
Had his memories come back?
That was impossible.
Lana then noticed Jeremy looking at her. “Miss Johnson, I’m so sorry. My wife only became so unstable because of the death of my in-laws. I hope you can forgive her for what she did just now.”
Lana wanted to end this as well. After all, she was in such a wretched state just now and could not even lift her head because of Madeline.
She understood what Jeremy was doing and thought that this man was helping her. As such, she smiled. “I sympathize with Mrs. Whitman’s bitter experience. I think she’s been through too much. Mr. Whitman, I won’t look into this for your sake,” Lana said magnanimously. After she said that, she even smirked victoriously at Madeline before leaving.
However, Madeline understood that this man’s memories had not returned. He was still siding with that deranged woman. It was clear that he was helping Lana!
“Lana Johnson, stop right there!” Madeline pushed Jeremy away to stop Lana.
However, before she could go far, Jeremy pulled her back. His eyes looked grim. “Linnie, don’t.”
Madeline sobbed and glared at the man who was pretending to be kind. At this moment, she completely broke down. “Do you know what you’re doing? When will you wake up? Jeremy, why did you become like this? I hate you! I hate…”
Before she could finish, she lost consciousness and passed out after closing her eyes.
Jeremy pulled her into his arms. While he was looking at her pale face, he furrowed his brows.
Ryan watched Madeline at one side with his brows also tightly furrowed. When he saw Jeremy carrying Madeline into the car, he stood there for a while before making a call…
Madeline was out for a very long time. When she woke up, she realized she was in the back seat of a car.
She sat up abruptly, and when she looked out the window, she was shocked.
The ocean was as far as the eye could see and there was soft white sand out there too. This was the beach in April Hill, the place that brought her the most happiness.
However, how did she end up here?
She got out of the car and spotted the man smoking next to it.
Jeremy noticed her and turned to look at her lifelessly. “You’re awake.”
When she remembered what happened before she passed out, she charged over to hit Jeremy. However, when she lifted her hand, the man grabbed her wrist.
He tightened his grip and pulled her into his arms to lock her in place.
“Eveline, is this how you treat your savior?” he asked in a deep voice. His charming and alluring voice glided into Madeline’s ears mischievously.
He could still feel the remaining fear in his heart when he recalled Lana pulling out her gun.
However, Madeline peered at him and snorted. “Savior? You’re only saving Lana. She’s the woman you love the most!”
He frowned when he heard that. His warm fingertips caressed Madeline’s emotionless face. “Aren’t you the woman I love the most?”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 973
When he asked her this, Madeline was slightly taken aback.
However, looking at those deep narrow eyes, Madeline did not have any expectations for him anymore. His eyes were also getting colder and colder.
“Jeremy, from now on, I, Eveline Montgomery, will slowly get rid of you from my heart. You won’t be the person I love the most. On the contrary, you’ll be the person I despise the most!”
Jeremy’s expression changed slightly after hearing her say that without hesitation. His arms around her became lifeless as well.
Madeline escaped from his arms and took off the wedding ring in front of him.
However, it was as if the ring had become smaller and she could not take it off no matter how hard she pulled.
Madeline cried out and used all of her might to pull it off. She still tried her best to repeat the action of removing the ring even when her fingers had turned raw from the friction.
Jeremy looked at Madeline who was in pain and felt something clenching at his heart.
When he was about to stop her, Madeline successfully removed her ring.
For some reason, Jeremy felt as if someone had emptied his heart at that instant.
Madeline lifted her wet and red eyes to look at the frowning man in disappointment.
“Jeremy, I hope when you eventually remember, you’ll be as indifferent as you are now. We can never go back to what we were in the past anymore.
“I won’t forgive you for the second time,” she said resolutely. When she turned around, she threw the ring next to his feet.
Madeline then walked forward with a blank gaze. Everything in front of her was dull and colorless now.
After Madeline went back, she took care of Eloise and Sean’s funeral before resting for a few days.
In these few days, she planned what she was going to do next.
She would officially move into Whitman Manor for the three children. Then, she would find a bodyguard to watch the kids day and night so that Lana would not cause any trouble for them.
However, after she caused trouble for her in front of Whitman Corporation, Lana never appeared again. Jeremy also disappeared along with Lana.
Whenever she thought about this man, Madeline would still feel excruciating pain in her heart.
She felt that not only did the current Jeremy lose his memories, but he also lost his conscience.
He had been completely brainwashed by Lana.
He kept doing things that were over the line again and again.
Madeline went back to her office in Whitman Corporation. She then sat in front of her computer and typed hesitantly. Eventually, she typed out two words—’divorce agreement’.
Tears streamed down her face as she typed emotionlessly.
‘Jeremy, do you know?
‘I’d rather you kill me.
‘However, you killed my parents and completely killed my heart.
‘Perhaps you and I won’t have a happy ending after all…’
After she printed the agreement, she started bawling uncontrollably.
At the same time, Ava came to visit her. When she saw Madeline crying, she quickly ran over to comfort her.
“Maddie, don’t be sad over that man anymore. He’s not worth it.”
“Ava, do you know how much I love him? I’d rather he just kill me. Why did it have to be my parents?” Madeline was so aggrieved that she wished she was dead. “Ava, I was wrong. I’ll listen to you from now on. I won’t turn back anymore.”
Ava patted Madeline’s back to comfort her. She started crying along with Madeline as well. “Maddie, everything will pass. All of it. Don’t cry. No matter what happens, I’ll support you and stay by your side.”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 974
After Ava said that, Madeline’s secretary knocked on the door. “Mrs. Whitman, there’s a young man with a bouquet of roses who says he wants to see you. He’s waiting outside right now.”
“A young man? Roses?” Ava was puzzled. “Maddie, is he your admirer? Does he think that Jeremy is dead and that’s why he’s pursuing you now?”
Madeline figured as much. As such, she asked Coco to reject the man.
However, after a while, Madeline heard a familiar voice from outside of her office. “My lady, it’s been so long. Have you already forgotten about me?”
When she heard that voice, she saw Fabian’s frivolous face appear in front of her.
Ava was confused. “Maddie, who’s this?”
“I’m Eveline’s close male friend,” Fabian said mischievously. Then, he lifted his eyebrow and walked over to Madeline.
“Am I right?” he asked with a smile. Then, he noticed Madeline’s eyes were red and she looked as if she had just cried.
Fabian’s smile disappeared as he became serious.
“Eveline, are you upset because of what happened to your parents?” Fabian asked gently. “I came here to apologize to you about that, actually.”
“Apologize? For what? Who are you?” Ava was even more puzzled.
“He’s Lana’s brother, Fabian,” Madeline explained.
Ava was enraged when she heard this. “So you’re that witch’s brother! How dare you come here and apologize? Do you think everything will be fine and dandy again after you apologize? Let me tell you, this is a lawful society and you’ll have to pay for murdering someone!”
“Ava.” Madeline got up and grabbed Ava who was fuming. “Fabian isn’t the same as Lana. He helped me before and even saved Lily.”
Ava was shocked and surprised. “He saved Lily?”
“She’s right. Lily and I are best friends.” Fabian tried to build connections with Ava, then displayed a look of disdain on his face. “Just like you guys, I hate that opinionated woman as well. If she’s not my sister, I would’ve…”
He made the gesture of a gun with his fingers.
Ava was still feeling some contempt toward him. “So a human life is nothing to the both of you?”
Fabian did not mind Ava berating him. He said seriously to Madeline, “Eveline, I’m here because my brother asked me to. He knows what Lana is doing in Glendale and wants to apologize to you in person.”
“What? You have a brother too?” Ava was even angrier. “Why? Are the mouths of your siblings made out of diamonds? Do you think you can get back the two lost lives just by apologizing?”
Fabian did not quibble with Ava and placed the roses down. “Eveline, I’ll pick you up tomorrow at six o’clock. Don’t worry. Even if Lana is rash, she won’t dare to do anything impulsive in front of my brother. As long as I’m here, I’ll make sure you’re safe.”
He promised, his frivolous-looking face filled with seriousness.
Before Madeline could answer him, he left.
Ava tried to talk Madeline out of this, saying, “Maddie, you can’t go. It must be a trap.”
“No, I have to.” Madeline decided right then and there. She went to the mall to buy a new set of clothes and even did her hair.
Fabian showed up at six o’clock.
When he saw Madeline, his eyes lit up. “You’re indeed the number one socialite in Glendale. I can already feel myself falling for you.”
Madeline ignored him and got into the car without saying a word.
Ten minutes later, the car stopped.
They were at Lana’s place.
Madeline got out of the car, following Fabian inside.
Jeremy walked downstairs and spotted Madeline entering the place. His eyes darkened as he froze in his tracks…
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 975
His eyes were glued on her, and his heart started racing all of a sudden.
She was looking breathtakingly stunning in front of him right now.
She had an icy aura around her, and there was no smile on her small face. However, the colder she was, the more charming she looked.
Even though she did not dress up, it was evident that she did put on a little makeup.
He could also see a red line around the ring finger on her left hand that was holding her clutch.
It was the wound from when she removed the ring forcefully.
Fabian brought her to the second floor. When they walked past Jeremy, Madeline pretended as if she did not see him and just breezed past him.
Jeremy grabbed her thin arm with a look of sadness in his eyes. “Why are you here?”
Madeline did not even look at him. “It’s none of your business,” she replied coldly and continued walking upstairs after she removed his hand from her.
Jeremy was just left with emptiness in his hand while his heart started beating erratically.
The living room on the second floor.
Right now, Yorick was sitting on the sofa with a stern look on his face. There was intense agitation in his piercing eyes.
The man’s features were handsome, and he had a pair of eyes as sharp as an eagle’s under his perfect eyebrows.
“What were you thinking? How dare you thoughtlessly set fire to kill people? This is Glendale. Do you know the Montgomeries’ status in this place?”
Lana scoffed nonchalantly. “They’ll never compare to the Stygian Johnsons no matter how powerful they are!”
“Do you think the Stygian Johnson Gang is something to be proud of? We’re not the same as the Montgomeries. You have to apologize to Eveline Montgomery when she gets here later.”
“Apologize to her?” Lana cackled. Then, her eyes became sharp. “I’ve been extremely kind to allow her to live this long.”
Yorick scolded angrily.
“Do you think you’re the person in charge now? If you can’t settle Eveline, you won’t be one of the Stygian Johnsons anymore!”
“What?” Lana leaped up from the sofa abruptly. “Why? Just because of that woman?”
However, Yorick did not say anything. It was as if he still had some considerations. After that, he warned coldly, “Don’t try to interfere with the Joneses’ business. From now on, just stay in F Country obediently and stop causing trouble!”
How would Lana accept such an arrangement? After that, she heard Yorick ask, “Are you taking those things again? Did Adam give them to you? Did you give Jeremy those things too?”
Lana avoided his eyes, but in the next second, she said cockily, “That’s right. I did give Jeremy that. If not, how would he think that he’s the one who set the fire? Hmph! I want him to depend on me forever. He won’t be able to leave me even when he regains his memories in the future!”
After she finished saying that, Fabian led Madeline into the living room on the second floor.
When Lana saw Madeline, a fire of rage started shooting out from her eyes.
Yorick got up and walked toward Madeline with outstretched arms. Then, he displayed a gentlemanly smile. “Miss Montgomery, let me introduce myself. I’m Yorick Johnson.”
This was the first time Lana saw Yorick being so patient and gentle to a woman. Immediately, she started feeling agitated.
Madeline did not shake Yorick’s hand. However, compared to when she saw him previously, he gave her a feeling of a modest man this time—not a cruel leader of a mob.
“I heard you came all the way from F Country, Mr. Johnson. Did you come here just to apologize to me?” Madeline asked in a flat tone. There was no smile on her charming and icy face.
Yorick nodded. Then, he said gently, “Miss Montgomery, I’ll cover all of the losses the Montgomeries suffered. Your parents have already passed and I hope you can restrain your grief and accept fate.”
“Accept fate?” Madeline snorted. Then, she glanced at Lana who was looking extremely dissatisfied. “Sure, but I want this woman to kneel and apologize to me.”
When Lana heard that, she barged in front of Madeline as her face fell entirely.
“Eveline, do you know that my brother has never talked to a woman so nicely before, let alone apologize?! So don’t be so shameless and so unappreciative!”
“Shut your mouth!” Yorick roared at Lana.
“Yorick!” Lana started simpering in dissatisfaction, but Yorick only gave her the cold shoulder.
“Miss Montgomery, if you want Lana to apologize to you, sure.” Yorick was still smiling warmly. Then, his face changed as he ordered Lana sternly. “Go and apologize to Miss Montgomery.”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 976
How could Lana agree to that? However, she was petrified when she saw Yorick’s dark eyes.
She looked at Madeline and bit her lip. Then, she said reluctantly, “Eveline, you want me to apologize to you so desperately, huh? Alright, I’ll apologize to you!”
“Wait.” Madeline stopped her.
Lana was frustrated. “What else do you want?”
“I told you I want you to kneel and apologize,” Madeline emphasized, her eyes looking stern.
“You… Eveline, don’t win an inch and want a foot!” Lana was infuriated.
However, Madeline’s expression remained unchanged. “What’s kneeling and apologizing compared to two lives?”
“Yeah, it’s nothing!” Fabian chimed in next to Madeline.
Lana glared at Fabian before looking at Yorick.
However, Yorick was firm on his decision. If Madeline wanted her to kneel, then she had to kneel.
Lana had never experienced this kind of humiliation before. She bit her lip and knelt in front of Madeline without a choice.
Madeline towered over her, peering down at her in disdain. Then, she heard Lana saying reluctantly, “I’m sorry, Miss Montgomery.”
However, there was an evil smirk on Lana’s lips.
“I’m so sorry, Miss Montgomery. It’s all my fault. I shouldn’t have asked my boyfriend Hans to set fire to your house. Even though I didn’t do anything, Hans is still my boyfriend. If you’ll feel better after I apologize, then I’ll apologize to you sincerely.”
Lana’s apologies were actually words to trigger Madeline.
She knew the most effective way to hurt Madeline was to weaponize Jeremy.
When she saw Madeline’s clenched fists, she smirked while feeling pleased with herself.
“Miss Montgomery, my sister has already apologized. Are you satisfied with this?”
“Do you think you can rid yourself of the crime of killing two people just by apologizing?”
“Eveline, what do you mean?”
“I mean, even if you kneel before me a hundred times, I still won’t forgive you!” Madeline was extremely imposing. “Lana, I don’t care who’s backing you up. I’m not scared of you and I won’t let my parents die dubiously!”
When Lana heard this, she knew she had been played.
She was infuriated. When she was about to slap Madeline, Yorick was one step ahead of her and slapped her out of the blue.
“Are you not done?” Yorick yelled angrily. At that instant, Lana was completely stunned.
Yorick slapped her because of Madeline?
No way, this was too much!
Then, Yorick turned around and smiled at Madeline.
“If you’re not in a good mood today, we can meet up and talk about this another time.” Yorick was still gentle. “Fab, send Miss Montgomery home.”
After he said that, Jeremy appeared in front of Madeline. “I’ll send her.”
Madeline did not look at Jeremy. Instead, she turned around and walked out on her own.
Jeremy looked at Lana before following Madeline.
However, it was clear that Madeline did not want to get into Jeremy’s car. She would rather walk home than get into his car.
Yet, Jeremy refused to let Madeline leave just like that. He pulled her into the passenger’s seat and stepped on the accelerator.
“Stop the car!” Madeline ordered, but Jeremy pretended to not hear her.
When she saw Jeremy ignoring her, she glared at him as her eyes darkened slowly. “Did God make me meet you just so you can torture me? Will you only be happy when I’m unhappy?”
Madeline looked at the frowning man. There was no light in her soulful eyes. “Jeremy, I’m tired. I’m so exhausted. If there’s a next life, I hope I’ll never meet you.”
After she said that, she opened the door and jumped out of the speeding car.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 977
The moment Madeline jumped out of the car, Jeremy’s mind went blank.
An indescribable fear and horror crept into his throat.
As he reached out his hand reflexively to grab onto Madeline, his body also pounced toward the direction Madeline jumped in.
Due to the inertia and force of impact, Jeremy held Madeline as they rolled a few times on the road before stopping.
Then, the car crashed into the divider island with a loud crash. The tires of the car were rubbing against the road furiously.
However, Jeremy did not care about the car nor his injuries and carried the unconscious woman in his arms.
He supported her head and patted her cheek.
“Linnie, don’t fall asleep.”
His voice was trembling, and he did not understand why he was so afraid right now.
It was only when he felt the stickiness behind Madeline’s head that he realized that his hands were covered in blood.
His heart plunged violently.
He then carried the pale Madeline and stopped a car by the side of the road. Then, they drove to the hospital as fast as they could.
He waited outside the operating theatre, staying there the entire time the operation was going on.
When the doctor came out and told him that Madeline had gotten out of the critical stage, he felt slightly relieved.
He went to look at her in the room. When he saw her serene face, he could not stop himself from getting close to her.
His fingers touched her eyebrows, and his eyes softened.
At this moment, he felt the changes in his heartbeat.
He had indeed fallen for this woman.
He was already touched by her the first time he got the urge to kiss her.
However, after he calmed down, he started feeling suspicious when he remembered the nervousness and horror he felt just now.
He looked at Madeline and called out this name once again.
Jeremy took out her phone from her bag. However, the moment he held it up, the phone unlocked with Face ID.
He was able to unlock her phone with his face! He felt his heart skip a beat.
The first thing he saw was the screensaver on the phone and it was a picture of a family of four.
They were on a ship, and in the photo, Madeline’s bump looked to be around four to five months along. Since Madeline just gave birth prematurely when she was only seven months along, it meant that this picture was from three months ago.
Jeremy started to recall the scenes of his nightmare.
Since three months ago, he had been dreaming about an exploding ship almost every night and would not be able to fall back asleep again.
The ship in his dream was almost the same as the one in the photo.
Jeremy fell into a sudden deep thought. There were some fragments of memories appearing in his brain.
Suddenly, he felt his consciousness starting to drift, yet he felt as if there were important and distinctive memories starting to resurface from the deepest part of his brain.
“Linnie, Linnie…” he murmured, feeling his heart beating erratically.
He spaced out for quite a while before opening the contacts list on Madeline’s phone groggily.
He saw Ava’s name and clicked on it subconsciously. After that, he sent her a message telling her that Madeline was in the hospital due to an accident.
After he did that, he placed the phone next to Madeline’s pillow.
Jeremy kept watch in front of the door of the ward. He only turned around when he saw a familiar figure running out of the elevator from afar.
Ava thought she saw Jeremy walk past. However, when she got closer, he was gone.
She walked into the room and saw bandages around Madeline’s head while she was unconscious with no colors on her face. She quickly ran over.
Ava held Madeline’s icy hand. She felt extremely heartbroken and confused. “What happened?”
Madeline slept for the entire night. When she woke up, everything in front of her was pitch-black.
“Maddie, you’re awake.”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 978
Ava’s concerned voice sounded in Madeline’s ear.
Madeline turned her face and tried to look for Ava in the dark. However, she got nothing. “Ava?”
“Maddie, what happened last night? Why are you hospitalized? Who sent the message to me on your phone?”
Madeline opened her eyes to look again after she heard Ava’s voice of concern. However, everything was still dark in front of her.
She lifted her hand and put it in front of her eyes, but she could not even see the outline of her hand.
Heh, she was blind again.
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath.
“Maddie, Maddie?” Ava was extremely concerned.
Madeline only shook her head. “Ava, I’m fine. You don’t have to worry about me. I won’t let anything happen to me for the sake of the children.”
She promised, then recalled what happened after she jumped out of the car.
She had been too impulsive.
When she thought about her parents who died tragically and the man she loved who was also the one who caused her parents to die in the fire, she could not face it nor did she want to face it.
She had wanted to end this. However, when she calmed down and thought about it clearly, she realized how stupid she was.
If she was dead, Lana would be the happiest.
How could she give up before seeking revenge?
She could not.
Madeline did not tell Ava about her vision loss. She merely said she was tired and wanted to sleep before asking Ava to leave.
After Ava left, Madeline got up with much effort to find the call button.
Her head hurt, and it was as if a million needles were stabbing the back of her head.
She endured the pain, and after a while, the doctor arrived.
When she knew that Madeline could not see, she arranged a full-body check-up for her.
After they got the results, the doctor told Madeline that her eyes were fine and there were no clots in her brain, so perhaps her blindness was psychological.
There was a knot in her heart.
Madeline felt that she would never regain her sight in this lifetime.
She did not have a solution to get rid of the knot in her heart.
Eloise and Sean would never come back to life.
She could not forgive Jeremy for his crimes either.
However, the doctor was pretty nonchalant about this. She said a lot of patients had the same condition as her. Usually, they would recover on their own and perhaps she would be able to see again the next day.
Of course, Madeline would want to regain her vision soon. After all, she still had to take care of her three kids.
Afterward, she asked the nurse to inform Karen about this.
Karen sobbed quietly when she found out Madeline was blind again after she arrived at the hospital.
She felt as if misfortune favored Madeline.
As her mother-in-law, Karen did not hit Madeline when she was down like she did before. This time, she was taking care of Madeline with all her heart.
Madeline’s wounds healed very quickly, but she still could not see anything.
Her movements were greatly restricted because of this.
Karen brought Madeline’s youngest son over so that she could breastfeed him while she went to fetch Madeline a glass of water.
Jeremy had been coming to the hospital these few days. However, since Karen was always around, he did not have a chance to get close to Madeline. Finally, when Karen left, Jeremy walked hurriedly to the door.
He looked at Madeline through the small window with an emotional glint in his eyes.
However, the glint was quickly overpowered by a complicated look.
“Linnie,” he called out softly, and it was as if Madeline heard him because she lifted her head suddenly.
When Jeremy was about to hide, Madeline placed her son down and started feeling around the edge of the bed to get up.
He was taken aback in disbelief. He thought he was seeing things, but in the next second, he saw Madeline crashing into the coffee table with her knees and falling to the floor.
Jeremy immediately pushed the door open and barged in to help Madeline get up. “Linnie! Linnie, are you okay? Did you hurt yourself?”
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 979
When Madeline felt herself being carried, she was shocked. However, in the next second, she pushed him away.
“Heh, Linnie? What are you playing at, Mr. Zimmerman?” Madeline scoffed. “Are you here to watch me make a fool of myself because you know I’m blind?”
She laughed and asked. Even though she could not see, she was standing tall and did not cower nor show a hint of fear.
“Lana, listen, even if I’m blind, I won’t allow you to have your way with me. I cried so much these days because of you, and I’ll make you pay double for it!”
Looking at the weak yet tough woman in front of him, Jeremy suppressed the pain in his heart and slowly walked in front of her.
“Linnie, I remember.”
When he said this, his gentle and deep voice traveled into Madeline’s ears softly.
It felt as if everything was frozen in time as the ward fell silent.
Madeline was stumped. Then, she heard the familiar voice repeating those words.
“Linnie, I remember everything.”
Madeline’s clear eyes that had lost their vision were filled with tears unbeknownst to her.
After a while, she chuckled.
“Really? You finally remember…” Madeline said flatly.
“You should go. We can’t go back to the way we were. We’re going to be enemies if we are to meet again.” She turned around slowly.
Jeremy walked up to her and grabbed her hand. Then, he knelt in front of her.
“Linnie. Linnie, I’m so sorry.” He apologized, but Madeline was untouched.
“You don’t have to say you’re sorry anymore. Even if you apologize to me for a year, two years, or even ten years, I will never forgive you for as long as I live.”
Madeline clenched her fists as her entire body shook.
Jeremy held Madeline’s cold and shaking hands. “Linnie, let me take care of you.”
“Even if I’ll be blind my whole life, I don’t want an inhuman person like you to take care of me. Get lost now!” Madeline got out of his grip and wanted to avoid him.
However, at this moment, the baby on the bed started crying.
“Pudding.” Madeline turned around hurriedly. However, since she could not see, she bumped into the edge of the bed and fell.
Jeremy ran over and helped her up, but Madeline pushed his hand away forcefully. “Don’t touch me.”
Jeremy felt a lump in his heart as his outstretched hand froze mid-air.
Madeline stood up while holding the bed and came to the side of the bed. Then, she carried the crying baby.
“Don’t cry, Pudding. Mommy’s here. Don’t cry.”
She comforted the baby, but at the same time, tears started streaming down her face.
Jeremy tried to get close to Madeline, but when she felt him getting close to her, she avoided him. “Get lost! Don’t get so close to me. Go back to you woman. I want nothing to do with you in the future!”
“Linnie, please calm down. Give me a chance to explain.”
Madeline felt that this word sounded oddly preposterous.
“My parents died because I gave you a chance.
“I experienced your cruelty before but I still couldn’t let you go. I killed my parents because I was soft and forgave you.
“Jeremy, do you think I’ll give you a chance? No. Never again unless you give me back my parents.”
Karen came back from fetching the water. When she got to the door, she heard Madeline’s pained voice.
She walked inside and saw Jeremy.
What surprised Karen was that Jeremy’s eyes were red and he was crying.
Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [Sixteenth Child] Chapter 980
It had been so many years, and as his mother, this was the first time she saw her son cry.
“Mom, can you please take Pudding out? I have something to say to this guy.” Madeline controlled her emotions and handed Pudding to Karen.
Even though Karen had a lot of questions, she obliged and took Pudding out.
There were only the two of them in the room right now, and the silence was deafening.
Madeline walked to the side of the bed and took out some documents from under her pillow to hand them to Jeremy.
“Sign this. I’m divorcing you.”
Jeremy looked at the papers Madeline was handing him and felt as if his heart was being sliced by a million knives.
He sobbed soundlessly and did not take the papers. On the contrary, he knelt in front of her again.
Looking at her haggard face, he felt so much pain in his heart that he could not breathe. “Linnie…”
“Don’t call me Linnie anymore. I’m not worthy of it.”
Madeline rejected coldly. She was forcing out a smile, but tears streamed uncontrollably from her eyes.
“During the days that you lost your memories, I kept telling myself that you only lost your memories temporarily and you’ll remember soon. And when you do, you’ll come back to me.
“I was wrong. Not only did you lose your memories, you even lost your humanity.
“You set fire to my house and killed my parents just to make Lana happy! You also burned my heart that loved you into ashes!
“Jeremy, I won’t forgive you no matter how many times you say you’re sorry.”
She took a deep breath and closed her eyes. This would be the last time she called his name.
“Jeremy, you’re the man I love the most in my life and also the only man I’m obsessed with and dedicated to. However, it’s time to let this go. From now on, Eveline Montgomery and Jeremy Whitman will not be husband and wife anymore. We’re breaking all ties between us.”
Madeline threw the papers at Jeremy and walked past him to go out of the room.
Jeremy looked at the scattered papers on the floor as tears streamed down his face.
He came to Montgomery Manor absent-mindedly.
Looking at the ruins in front of him, he could not imagine himself setting fire to this place.
He closed his eyes and recalled everything he did to Madeline when he lost his memories. He could not even forgive himself, let alone ask her to forgive him.
That day when Madeline had to go into early labor because of Lana, he did not do anything to help her when she suffered in front of him.
She worked so hard to carry his child for him but he never looked at the child once.
“Lana,” Jeremy uttered that woman’s name from his mouth coldly.
His eyes became sharp as he turned around.
In the villa.
Lana and Naomi were drinking at this moment.
“Hmph, I don’t know what’s wrong with my brother. Why is he helping Eveline?”
“Does Yorick have a crush on Eveline?” Naomi guessed.
“Impossible. My brother will never have a crush on her.” Lana denied it and downed her beer angrily.
“I don’t even know what my brother is worried about. Who dares to go against us Stygian Johnsons when we’re in F Country? Eveline is nothing!”
Naomi nodded and looked at the screen of her phone. Suddenly, her eyes lit up. “Lana! Someone told me that Eveline is blind!”
“What?” Lana slammed her mug on the table right after she lifted it. “Eveline’s blind? Really?”
“Really!” Naomi laughed out joyously.
Lana was so happy that she could not stop smiling. When she was about to say something, she saw Jeremy walking in, so she immediately walked over to him. “Hans, let me tell you some good news. Madeline is blind!”
