Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1791
Jeremy’s gaze then fell upon the little window on the door of the ward.
He looked into the ward and saw Madeline’s thin back.
Jeremy felt a pinch in his heart and immediately opened the door of the ward.
“A word of advice.”
Fabian’s voice came from behind Jeremy.
“She might be agitated, and she also might not be able to recognize you. Best be mentally prepared.”
After hearing Fabian’s so-called advice, Jeremy gently closed the door.
He looked at Madeline, who was hugging her legs, curled up at the edge of the bed, as he slowly made his way toward her.
“It’s not me. I really didn’t do such a thing. Jeremy, why won’t you believe me…”
When Jeremy was halfway toward her, he suddenly heard Madeline muttering such a comment.
The words Madeline had spoken were like a sharp sword piercing straight into his heart.
His footsteps that were getting closer to her suddenly stopped on their own accord as he kept hearing Madeline muttering to herself continuously.
“You’re the one who said that you’ll marry me when I grow up. Why did you have to be so disgusted with me even when you’re not willing to marry me?
“Why don’t you believe me even once? Just only once will do.
“I only love you, Jeremy. Why do I have to pay such a price for loving you? Why do you believe anything Meredith says? Jeremy, why…”
Jeremy felt even more heartbroken when he heard it.
At that moment, he felt that he did not even have the right to approach Madeline.
The past he wished not to see slowly surged into his mind. Those were the scenes of him causing her harm.
‘How could you be so cruel, Jeremy Whitman. You truly were one cruel person back then. How cold-
hearted could you be to cruelly harm a lady who loved you this much?’
Jeremy choked and his eyes reddened. Without him realizing it, he softly blurted Madeline’s name.
However, even though he said it softly, it was as if Madeline had heard it.
She stopped muttering and slowly turned around to look behind her.
The moment she locked eyes with Jeremy, Madeline’s eyes suddenly glowed.
“It really wasn’t me.”
She said softly, emphasizing that statement to Jeremy.
The moment Jeremy looked into Madeline’s helpless and hurtful eyes, Jeremy was at a loss for words.
He choked and his Adam’s apple moved as he made his way to Madeline again.
Her pale and devastated face seemed entirely different from back when they had separated at the airport.
Jeremy walked to the bedside and raised his hand toward Madeline’s face. “Linnie.”
Madeline paused when she heard it. She quickly tilted her head away, her eyes glinting in a way that she was putting up her guard.
“Who are you? I want to see Jeremy. Where’s Jeremy? I want to see him.”
Jeremy’s outstretched hand suddenly froze in mid- air.
“Linnie, I’m Jeremy. Don’t you recognize me anymore?”
Madeline examined Jeremy’s appearance, then shook her head with a straight face. “You’re not Jeremy. Jeremy won’t greet me that way. He’d even feel disgusted with my name. How would he even call me Linnie? Who the hell are you? Why are you impersonating Jeremy? Did Meredith sent you here? What do you want?!”
Madeline’s attitudebecame more alert.
She staggered as she got up and tried to evade Jeremy, who was approaching her.
“Who the hell are you guys? Why won’t you guys let me out, preventing me from seeing Jeremy? It must be Meredith. She sent you guys here to keep an eye on me!”
