Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1818
Shirley, impressed by Ada’s acting skills, smiled. “ The credit for this belongs to you, Viscountess.”
“ .” Ada’s expression froze, but she hurriedly changed into a look of innocence. “I don’t understand what you’re saying, Miss Brown. It’s chilly outside, You should come in and talk.”
“Thank you, then, Viscountess.” Shirley rolled her eyes at Ada and looked up at Cathy. “Let’s go, Cathy.”
It was the first time Shirley addressed Cathy by name.
Cathy, still surprised, pushed Cathy into the manor.
Ada had only invited Shirley into the house because she knew that Carter and Camille were not home at this moment.
Otherwise, she would not have allowed this “ dangerous” person to enter.
With an air of authority as the hostess of the manor, Ada instructed the servants to serve tea and desserts to Cathy and Shirley.
“Please enjoy. The desserts were crafted by our pastry chef. They’re comparable to those from hotels with five and six stars.”
Ada invited them with a smile, appearing dignified and generous.
Shirley did not even bother to look at her. “I’ve been eating desserts at the Gray’s for years, so I’m more familiar with it than you are. Don’t trouble yourself with an introduction.”
“Moreover, I’m already tired of these desserts. After all, I’ve had them for so many years. You should save them for yourself instead.”
Ada’s expression turned unpleasant as she struggled to hold the smile on her face.
They both knew what Ada had done to Shirley, even though Ada refused to admit it.
“You’re being too polite, Miss Brown. We’re considered friends after all.”
“There’s no need for this. I’m not here to have tea with you,” Shirley said coldly, “tell Carter to come out.”
“ .” Ada raised her eyebrows when she heard Shirley. “Unfortunately, Miss Brown, my husband isn’t home.”
Ada felt triumphant when she used that word.
Cathy glanced at Shirley who did not seem bothered; Shirley’s expression remained composed.
“Give him a call then. Ask him to come home immediately. There’s something important I need to tell him in person.”
Of course, Ada would not allow Carter to meet Shirley. If he saw Shirley now, Ada’s image in Carter’s mind would be greatly reduced, regardless o f whether Carter believed Shirley or not.
Furthermore, she actually did not have Carter’s mobile number.
“What’s the matter, Viscountess? Can’t you call your husband, or are you afraid to call him? I’ll do it if you can’t.”
Shirley then pulled out her mobile phone to call Carter.
With all the servants watching, Ada felt embarrassed.
At this moment, Camille returned.
Camille studied the person seated in the wheelchair by the sofa. From the expression of Camille’s eyes, it took her a while to recognize Shirley.
The sight of Shirley sitting in a wheelchair shocked Camille. After some time, she finally found her voice.
Shirley nodded her head as her eyes smiled. “Mrs. Gray. It’s been a while since we last met.”
Camille did not seem to hear what she had said. Camille’s eyes were drawn to Shirley’s legs, then Camille frowned. “What happened to your legs, Shirley?”
“It’s not a big deal. Thank you for your concern, Mrs. Gray. I’m here today because there’s something important that I need to tell Carter in person.”
Camille’s expression turned solemn. “What’s the matter?”
“I’m pregnant. The child belongs to Carter.”
