Chapter 13: What are you unhappy about?
To be honest, the last person Martina wanted to see right now was him. But at the same time, the person she most wanted to see…was also him.
Just when Martina thought she could return home peacefully, even the man in the car,
who was emotionally dense, could sense that something was wrong with her. Especially
when he saw how pitiful she looked now, his heart seemed to stop for a second.
With a deep voice and an interrogative tone, Benjamin asked, “I remember you didn’t
like going to places like this before. Do you find nightclubs fun now?”
Martina caught a whiff of Benjamin’s unique scent from his clothes, and her head. suddenly felt dizzy. She thought Benjamin had finally realized his conscience, but now that she heard what he said, especially his attitude, she was suddenly angry.
What was he doing here now, asking her about this?
He was the one who left her in the US, ignored her, and allowed anyone to bully her.
He was the one who treated her as if she was disposable, indifferent to her being
bullied by anyone.
Wasn’t it him who used his obvious attitude to force her to leave?
“You mind your own business,” said Martina, displaying unexpected disobedient behavior in front of Benjamin. He probably understood the changes in Martina that Simon.
had mentioned to him.
He frowned but still patiently waved at Martina, “Come here.”
Usually, Martina would have willingly gone over and hugged Benjamin tightly. But now,
Martina didn’t move.
It was as if she was intentionally going against him. With her eyes reddening, she stubbornly stared at him.
“If Mr. Walker has something to say, just say it directly. There’s no need for me to come
over,” said Martina, still refusing to move.
Benjamin’s patience was running out, but he remembered that Martina had been wronged this time, so he gritted his teeth and tried to be patient again. “Come here, let me
check if you’re hurt,” he said.
Martina still didn’t budge, her nose now feeling a bit sore. To avoid letting Benjamin see her in a vulnerable state, she stubbornly turned her head and wiped away her tears.
“Don’t worry, I’m fine now. I’m actually doing great without you by my side,” Martina emphasized the last few words deliberately, and even the clueless Benjamin could tell what
He narrowed his eyes, unable to resist any longer. The next moment, he pulled Martinal into his arms without any explanation. Feeling her soft body snuggled in his arms, he finally
had her within reach.
Finally, the feeling of frustration in Benjamin’s heart gradually dissipated.
Benjamin said softly, “Sorry, I came too late this time. If you have any requests, just let me know, and I will try my best to fulfill them.”
See, this was how it was. Even though Benjamin knew she was angry, he would only let
her make demands as compensation.
But what she wanted was not so–called compensation. What she wanted was
Benjamin’s wholehearted love. Could he give her that?
Martina knew she couldn’t be weak again, so she struggled to leave.
But Benjamin was particularly stubborn, and his hands were so strong that Martina couldn’t break free no matter how hard she struggled.
“Mr. Walker, we have already broken up. Isn’t my behavior obvious enough? What are
you doing now?” Martina almost screamed out.
Hearing Martina’s straightforward words, even Simon, who was driving, couldn’t help but
take a deep breath.
Was Martina really unable to stand it after years of patience?
Did her attitude towards the boss change drastically?
Even the boss seemed to have more tolerance for Martina now.
At this moment, Benjamin closed his eyes and gently rested his head on Martina’s
Feeling the coolness on Martina’s body, his heart softened a bit.
He rubbed Martina’s head and said, “Listen to me, don’t move.”
Martina realized that she couldn’t break free, so she stopped struggling and said to Benjamin, “I won’t move, please take me to my apartment, thank you.”
Benjamin was very stubborn.
Opening his eyes again, he looked deeply displeased and asked, “Martina, what are you. dissatisfied with?”
He had already sent gifts through Simon, wasn’t that enough? Martina saw right through Benjamin’s thoughts.
Well, it was just as she thought. Benjamin always treated her like a pet that could be called upon and dismissed at will! When he needed her, she had to appear, and when he didn’t, she had to disappear.
But why? She wasn’t a pet! She has her own independent consciousness, she is a living person! Why should she live in such a subservient manner, lower than even a cat or a dog?
She didn’t want to be like that anymore. Never.
Normally, Martina had always been gentle and obedient, but now she didn’t want to be
“Benjamin, does it really matter what I’m dissatisfied with?” Martina spoke before. Benjamin had a chance to respond. “It’s like when I asked you to take me back to my apartment, what are you doing taking me here instead?”
Martina was not blind and knew the way well.
With just a glance, she could tell that this was not the way to her apartment, but instead the way to Benjamin’s home.
Benjamin never took her words seriously, even if she expressed her dissatisfaction, what could she do?
“Other than this, I can fulfill everything else for you,” Benjamin said. His meaning was that Martina had to go back his home and live with him..
Benjamin seemed a bit tired, and upon closer inspection, he had got slight bloodshot
It’s understandable when you think about it.
Recently, Benjamin had been working tirelessly, almost sacrificing his own life just to return to the US as soon as possible.
But when he finally returned, he didn’t see Martina as he had hoped, and his spirit remained tense.
Now that he finally had his beloved girl in his arms, his exhaustion was obvious.
Martina had also noticed Benjamin’s change, but she didn’t want to go back because that was not her home.
However, it was clear that Benjamin wasn’t going to let go easily, so Martina remained
Why bothered with useless chatter?
As always, her intentions were irrelevant. Benjamin’s deep gaze fell on Martina, who would have taken the initiative to kiss him in normal times, but not now.
Benjamin’s distinctively large hands gently lift up her hair, as if deliberately changing the subject, “Why did you go to the nightclub today? It’s not a place for you.”
Martina’s rebellious mentality responded, “Whether it’s suitable or not, it’s up to me. I like it.”
Benjamin became a little depressed, but didn’t want to be angry with the woman in his arms. He conceded once again, “Just this time, not again.”
Martina couldn’t help but laugh at his antics. But she realized that even if she were to go back with him, it would only be going through the motions. They would still return to
their separate homes tomorrow. What was the point of arguing over these things?
It was just not interesting at all.
