Chapter 12: It was Him Who Came
Throughout his life, Benjamin had never felt so anxious and uncertain. He had been back for so long, yet he still couldn’t see Martina.
He knew for sure that he wanted to see her.
The only thing he knew was that Martina had a decent relationship with the woman
from the Rodriguez family. If he couldn’t find her, the Rodríguez family would be the breakthrough point.
Simon was so nervous that he couldn’t even catch his breath, and he agreed to go out for investigation.
It wasn’t his fault, after all. He couldn’t grow wings and follow Martina around all the
Just then, a call came in from Adam, who was boasting about some good news.
“Benjamin, I have some good news to share. Do you want to hear it?” Adam asked.
Benjamin immediately refused without thinking, “No time.”
Adam was never good at talking, and now Benjamin was more interested in knowing
what Martina was doing.
However, the next second, Adam continued saying as if he was speaking to himself, “Well, Benjamin was sort of boring. The thing I’m about to tell is related to the woman who
used to cling to him.”
Hearing this, Benjamin’s breath became unstable. “Speak,” he said in just one word.
Just one word made Adam shiver with goosebumps all over his body, but he still spoke plainly and truthfully, “I have to say,
after leaving you, Martinez has really hit rock bottom. Today, she was even taken away by the police at a nightclub as a suspected criminal.”
Adam spoke with excitement, even raising his eyebrows and eyes, sounding delighted, “She is still being held in the police station now. If no one bails her out, she will probably be detained for a few days!”
“But I think it’s good that she’s like this. She deserved it for always sticking to you like a leech before,” he continued.
However, at this moment, Benjamin was completely no longer calm.
Without saying a word, Benjamin hung up the phone and immediately picked up his
coat, giving a look to Simon and said, “Let’s go to the police station!”
Simon wasn’t a fool, and at this moment, he truly realized that Martina might not be as dispensable as she seemed in front of the boss!
Otherwise, why would his boss be so nervous upon hearing the news that Martina was in the police station?
Although his facial expression didn’t change much, the sudden coldness that surrounded him had already revealed everything.
Once, Martina used to follow him around like a little tail, never leaving him even when
he was in a bad mood.
But now, this woman repeatedly didn’t answer his calls, and now she had even been.
taken to the police station. What did she want to do?
Benjamin’s tall and straight figure walked hastily towards the door.
Thinking about the past, the depressed feeling in his heart became even stronger. She best explained it all when they met.
The butler witnessed everything and promptly reported it to Elizabeth.
He was displeased that someone of Martina’s status was being treated so well by Mr. Benjamin Walker. Now that Martina had been taken to the police station, her shamelessness.
knew no bounds.
With knowledge of Martina’s whereabouts, the investigation become easier for Benjamin, who conducted a thorough inquiry and uncovered the truth.
It was Elena who had invited Martina to the nightclub, where they ended up being. caught up in investigations into illegal business practices and possible rape cases.
Coincidentally, she ended up at the nightclub with a dangerous man who was a charming male stripper, and they were both taken to the police station for questioning.
Later on, since she didn’t have any identification on her, she was temporarily detained and couldn’t leave the station.
It was quite embarrassing, especially when she heard the things that came out of
Adam probably never thought that his words, which sounded like he was taking credit for something, would end up helping Martina instead.
If he had known beforehand, he would never have made that phone call.
In the police station, Martina had no idea how long she had been waiting there, maybe an hour or two.
The air conditioning was on in the lounge, but she was dressed too lightly and was now covered in goosebumps.
Just as she was starting to feel like she couldn’t take it anymore, she heard a police officer’s voice from outside the door, “Martina Martinez, your guardian is here to pick you up. You can leave now.”
Martina was taken aback for a moment, but then she realized that it was probably Elena who had come to get her.
Without overthinking it, she rubbed her sore calves and stood up unsteadily.
But Martina didn’t expect that, after leaving the lounge, she would arrive at the lobby of the police station and see a figure she hadn’t seen in several months.
It was Benjamin.
This glance felt like a lifetime ago.
No matter when, Benjamin always exuded an air of elegance and extraordinary grace. His handsome face concealed a hint of undeniable anger.
Indeed, although she didn’t know how Benjamin found out she was at the police station, it was worth getting angry that he sacrificed his rest time to come here and pick her up in the middle of the night.
Martina’s emotions on her face were a bit stiff, and her eyes were a little red and uncooperative.
Although she had already prepared herself to not soften her heart no matter what, when she saw the figure of the man she had loved for six years, her heart couldn’t help but waver a bit.
Only when Martina deeply dug her sharp nails into her palm did she finally pull herself back to reality.
She warned herself that she couldn’t, under any circumstances, turn back. Otherwise, she would be doomed.
She didn’t want to be a laughing stock anymore.
Seeing Martina’s figure, the coldness around Benjamin became even stronger, and even the anger on his face seemed to have doubled.
Well done, Martina! Benjamin had been away for several days, staying outside, but she secretly went to the nightclub and even got caught by the police here.
Benjamin brought a photocopy of Martina’s ID to confirm her identity and age, so she could be released smoothly.
In the car, Benjamin and Martina sat on opposite sides of the back seat.
Benjamin felt extremely annoyed for the first time: why was the space in his car so large that the distance between him and Martina was so far apart?
His big hands were tapping lightly on the leather seat, and there was an undeniable fierceness in his expression.
Ever since he made that breakup call and got hung up on by someone next to Benjamin, they had never been in contact again. They hadn’t even had a chance to talk about what happened.
Now, it felt like ages ago.
Yet here she was, once again taken away by Benjamin from the police station, and once again making a fool of herself in front of him.
It was as if she was proving what others had said, but Martina refused to give up!
Martina clenched her teeth and looked out the window. It was already 2 a.m. There
weren’t many people on the street, but the car’s air conditioning made Martina hug herself
This small action naturally did not escape Benjamin’s eyes.
The next second, Benjamin threw his jacket on Martina.
Martina was taken aback, but didn’t want to joke with her body and put it on. Then she said softly, “Thank you.”
