Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1834
However, Carter had not even bothered to look at her. “From now on, you’ll be responsible for taking care of Shirley, including her diet and daily needs. If Shirley experiences any discomfort or if the baby in her womb is harmed in any way, it’ll be on you.”
“… Wh… What?” Ada’s eyes widened in shock. “You want me to take care of Shirley’s diet and daily needs? Wouldn’t that make me her servant?”
Whenever Carter was present, Ada always attempted to appear dignified and gracious, but Carter’s words instantly made her reveal her true nature.
Carter glanced at Ada indifferently.
“You could choose not to do it. You’ll just have to be prepared that moving forward, you’ll be enduring the same hardships as Shirley.”
Ada’s face paled when she heard this. The same hardships as Shirley?
She would not be able to endure it either!
“Let’s not waste my time, yeah?”
Impatient, Carter interrupted Ada’s quibble.
When Ada saw the piercing glint in his eyes, she immediately kept her mouth shut, not daring to speak further.
Carter did not have the patience to wait for Ada’s response, and he was confident that she would not dare to refuse his request, so he turned around and left.
Ada had not expected this move from Carter.
With that, he protected Shirley and cut off all Ada’s attempts to harm her as well.
In the coming days, if Shirley were to lose even a strand of hair, Ada might lose a piece of her skin as well.
Ada felt aggrieved, but there was nothing she could do.
Carter’s plan was so perfect that she was left with no other option.
Jeremy had been in the hotel for seven days.
Throughout the week, Madeline had relied on a daily intake of nutrient solutions to maintain her physical condition. Jeremy had kept a constant eye on her, not leaving her side for even a second.
He had been waiting for Adam’s progress update. The indefinite wait was pushing him toward the verge of a breakdown.
He seriously suspected that the anti-toxoid test reagent which Carter had thrown out of the window back then was not the anti-toxoid test reagent for
AXP69. Otherwise, his Linnie would not still be unconscious.
Fabian had also developed quite a good network in F Country, and he had learned, off the radar, about Jeremy and Madeline’s condition.
He could not resist the urge to help them, but he hesitated when he thought of Yorick and Lana.
A little after midnight, he wandered into Lilian’s bedroom and stared at the adorable little girl who had fallen asleep. Fabian’s mind was troubled.
“Lily, do you think I should help your mother?”
Fabian’s tone was soft as he asked Lilian, who was unable to hear him.
“Your parents indirectly killed my brother and that disappointing sister of mine. Should I just ignore them?”
Frustrated, Fabian raised his eyebrows. He stretched out a hand to gently stroke Lilian’s small face, and the expression in his eyes gradually softened.
“I just want to leave everything behind and bring you to a beautiful, tranquil island where you can grow up healthily and peacefully.”
Immediately after Fabian finished this beautiful prayer in his heart, the phone in his pocket vibrated.
He pulled it out and looked at the caller ID before turning around to leave Lilian’s bedroom.
The moment he stepped out of the room, Fabian impatiently asked the caller, “Why are you calling me at this hour? I’ve told you before. I don’t want to be in contact with you anymore.”
