Chapter 14: Was Her Departure Worth Celebrating?
Before long, Martina was pulled out of the car by Benjamin.
It was already past two o’clock in the midnight, but the Walker family’s villa was still brightly lit, as if no one had slept yet.
Martina couldn’t help but chuckle at the sight. Were these people so happy about her leaving that they had to pull an all–nighter to celebrate? Or was this how they had been living for the past few days?
Was her departure really worth celebrating?
Benjamin led Martina by the hand and walked towards the entrance of the villa, where they saw a crowd of people gathered outside.
Benjamin’s mother was at the forefront, standing next to the butler.
In the middle was another woman, who was none other than Amy, Adam’s
Elizabeth looked concerned and her gaze landed on Benjamin, “Son, where did you go? Why did you go out so late at night?”
While speaking, Elizabeth also noticed Martina who came with Benjamin, and a hint of displeasure quickly flashed across her eyes.
Even Amy had a similar reaction, “Benjamin, didn’t Martina say she wouldn’t come back again? Why is she here again?”
Martina had no intention of speaking with these people and coldly shrugged off Benjamin’s hand before returning to her previous room.
A strange look quickly appeared on Elizabeth’s face. Martina had actually come back,
even though she had sworn that it was her last time here.
However, since Benjamin was still here, Elizabeth did not reveal too much.
It was Amy who couldn’t contain her curiosity, “Benjamin, did Martina call and ask you
to pick her up?”
“She really doesn’t know how to be considerate. You have been working so hard for so long, yet she doesn’t know how to show any concern for you,” she continued, unable to
contain her frustration.
Elizabeth agreed, ostensibly defending Martina but actually making veiled remarks,
“Amy, Martina has been spoiled. It’s normal for her to not understand the rules sometimes, after all, she still has Mr. Jack Walker to protect her.”
Benjamin didn’t fail to notice this.
But because it was his own mother who said this, he ultimately didn’t lose his temper.
However, Benjamin didn’t show any mercy to Amy, and asked without any consideration, “Why are you here at my home?”
Previously, Benjamin had been busy and hadn’t had a chance to meet Amy.
Coupled with Elizabeth’s intentional concealment, it’s no wonder he didn’t know about
Amy was stunned for a moment and panicked as she hid behind Elizabeth, seemingly feeling embarrassed, “I’m here because… because…”
She couldn’t just say that she had been staying here for almost half a month because. she was the one who made Martina leave, right?
Elizabeth patted Amy’s hand to help her out. “Son, don’t blame Amy. It was me who asked her to stay here,” She said to Benjamin. “Our home has a better environment and is
more suitable for Amy to recuperate. You and Amy grew up together. You can’t just ignore
this favor, right?”
The bottom of Benjamin’s eyes turned cold, and he probably understood the situation a
He thought of Martina’s cold face just now, could it be related to Amy?
Therefore, Benjamin showed no mercy and said, “You can go back tomorrow by yourself, or I can have someone send you back.
It was almost like kicking her out.
Amy’s face turned red all of a sudden, partly because she felt embarrassed, and partly
because she felt especially sad.
Tears flowed down like it didn’t cost anything. She cried as she grabbed Elizabeth’s
hand, “Does Benjamin really hate me?”
Elizabeth really liked Amy and couldn’t bear to see her being treated unfairly.
“Don’t worry, Amy,” she said. “I am here to support you. My son is just annoyed for a
while. It’s okay. After all things are settled, I will bring you back.”
Amy had to give up for now, but she was not convinced and became even more
resentful towards Martina.
She was probably the one who deliberately whispered in front of Benjamin and made.
him treat her like this. What a cunning woman!
When Benjamin returned to their shared bedroom, he saw Martina kneeling on the ground in a tricky position, her arms constantly reaching and fumbling under the bed.
Perhaps because she was too anxious, there were some fine beads of sweat on her
face. But she stubbornly bit her lips and kept reaching inside, but still couldn’t succeed.
From this angle, Benjamin could almost see Martina’s well–proportioned figure in full
However, Martina still didn’t know Benjamin was watching her and continued to search for her belongings.
Benjamin’s last bit of dissatisfaction gradually disappeared at this moment. He asked, “What are you looking for?”
Until Benjamin’s voice appeared behind her, Martina finally regained her senses.
She panicked and tried to stand up, but her head hit a bed board with a bang, and her forehead turned red instantly.
Not only that, Martina rubbed her sore forehead with embarrassment and annoyance, staring at Benjamin discontentedly, “Who let you in?”
She was just thinking that there were some personal belongings hidden under the bed that she wanted to take away tomorrow. Who knew that Benjamin would come in so quietly?
Without saying a word, Benjamin strode over to Martina and pulled her to sit on the
He let go of her hand and saw that her forehead was slightly scratched. He couldn’t help but reprimand her, “How could you be so careless?”
Before Martina could react, Benjamin took out his phone and made a call to Simon, “Bring the first aid kit over.”
Simon quickly brought the kit over, running all the way. Benjamin personally took it from
Martina understood Benjamin’s intention. Was he trying to apply the medicine for her? She politely declined, “I can do it myself. It’s just a minor skin injury.”
Compared to the pain in her heart, this was nothing.
She just wanted to distance herself from Benjamin as much as possible.
Regarding the relationship between herself and Benjamin, she really should clarify it properly.
With this thought in mind, Martina picked up the first aid kit and casually applied some medicine on her forehead in front of the dressing table, using the mirror to guide her. The whole process took less than a minute.
By the time Martina turned around again, she had already sorted out her feelings. completely.
Looking at Benjamin in front of her, there was no longer the deep admiration she once had, but only exhaustion and numbness.
“Benjamin, let’s talk things out,” Martina said.
Benjamin patted the seat next to him and said, “Come sit here.”
