Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1828
“It’s best not to offend Carter. There are other ways for him to obtain the right of succession. You’re merely a stepping stone, at best. Don’t confuse your position with your value. Otherwise, your family won’t come to a good end.”
Camille finished speaking coldly before patting Cathy on the shoulder.
“Miss Jordan, I believe that Carter and Shirley have more to discuss. Let’s take a seat downstairs in the meantime.”
Cathy too did not want to stay with Ada and her mother, so Cathy followed Camille downstairs.
Ada held her burning cheek that Carter had slapped. She gritted her teeth with extreme displeasure.
After Ada returned to her room, she clenched her fists at the sight of the swelling on her cheek and the blood trickling from the corner of her mouth.
“He actually hit me for that stinky beggar! ” Ada gritted her teeth. “I can’t let this go. Mom, what should I do now? Would Carter really disfigure my
face and break my legs if I went against him?” “He wouldn’t dare!”
Ada’s mother had a domineering and arrogant gaze.
“Don’t be afraid, Ada. Remember your current status. That Shirley is nothing in comparison to your family background! ”
“She’s pregnant, though. Carter has accepted the child, and even called Shirley his woman…” Ada said, simultaneously feeling resentful and upset.
Ever since they married, Carter had never shared a room with her.
Even if she desired to produce a child for the Gray family, she had not been given the chance.
She dared not tell her mother this. It was too shameful.
“Don’t worry, Ada. I won’t allow that stinky beggar to give birth to that vile spawn!” Ada’s mother promised solemnly.
Ada immediately understood her mother’s meaning, but Ada kept silent and pretended not to understand. She was afraid that the walls had ears, and she did not want to be involved when anything happened to Shirley.
Carter pushed Shirley into the laboratory.
That laboratory was unfamiliar to her. It was not the usual laboratory where she had conducted her research and experiments.
Carter walked straight to a small refrigerator not far away. He swiftly entered the password and opened the refrigerator’s door, then pulled out a rectangle box and handed it to Shirley.
Impassively, he looked at Shirley squarely and said, “All the necessary ingredients are in this box.”
Shirley stared at the box skeptically before opening it. With her professional expertise, she confirmed that it did indeed contain all the ingredients required for AXT6g.
She silently breathed a sigh of relief.
Shirley was about to put away the box when Carter grabbed it.
She stared at Carter in confusion. “What’s the meaning of this, Carter?”
Carter laughed. “I’m sure you know how valuable this formula is.”
“And that’s why this formula is more valuable than this little thing that’s growing inside me?” Shirley asked with a chuckle.
As soon as he heard her words, Carter’s eyebrows tightened, and the expression on his stone-cold face darkened instantly.
“Shirley, just keep your mouth shut if you can’t speak properly. What’s this little thing? He’s your child too!”
“You’re wrong. This isn’t my child.” “What did you just say?”
