Chapter 20: It’s really over
Benjamin seemed to have heard the most unbelievable words he could ever hear in his life. It was more incredulous than seeing his painstakingly built company suddenly facing
Martina continued, “I don’t want to like you anymore. It’s too exhausting to like you, and
I can’t take it anymore.”
In the past few years, she had never thought of giving up, but now she really couldn’t bear it anymore. It wasn’t just because of a few people’s dissatisfaction or hostility towards. her, but because she couldn’t see any hope. She didn’t want to spend the rest of her life in
If she could, she really wanted to make a name for herself and have her own career
and life, just like now.
She didn’t want to constantly worry about what Benjamin was doing when he didn’t answer her phone. She wanted to focus on her own work without worrying about when he
would come back.
Benjamin’s patience was on the verge of collapse, and the corners of his eyes turned
“I know that you haven’t been feeling well recently because I have been busy abroad,”
“I will try to make time for you and spend time with you alone every week. You can tell me anything you are unhappy about.
“You can make a list of the gifts you want, and I will make sure you are completely
“It was wrong of the butler to treat you with disrespect, and I promise it won’t happen
“If you really don’t like living with my mom, I can make separate arrangements for you
Before Benjamin could finish his sentence, Martina interrupted him, “It’s not because of these things. Even if there was no butler, no Elizabeth, we would still end up like this. Just because of certain people or things that made our pace hasten, we are not suitable for each other, why torture each other?”
Yes, it was true that they were not suitable, and Martina could only keep reminding herself with these words, trying to numb her inner feelings.
“And there’s no need for the gift list you mentioned. I didn’t take away any of the thing you gave me before. Whether you gave them to someone else or sold them, it has n
to do with me anymore. Just like I said, let’s leave it at that.”
After finishing her words, Martina turned around because she was afraid that if she continued to look at him, she would not be able to hold back her tears.
Even though she had told herself over and over again not to be soft-hearted, every time this man appeared in front of her, she couldn’t help but waver.
After all, he was the man she had deeply loved for six years, her beloved, how could
she really be so decisive?
This time, Benjamin could no longer pretend that he had heard nothing. His patience was at its limit. He was not a person with a good temper to begin with.
“Do you even know what you’re saying?” he asked.
Martina still didn’t turn around and nodded, “I know. From now on, you go your way and
go mine. No matter life or death, we have nothing to do with each other. I don’t ask for anything else, just that we have no relationships with each other from now on.”
Benjamin had been staring at Martina’s figure for a long time, but because she had her back to him, he couldn’t see her expression. Naturally, he couldn’t see Martina secretly covering her mouth and sobbing, even biting her lips again and breaking the skin.
Benjamin only thought that Martina really hated him, so much so that she didn’t want to take another look at him.
Taking a deep breath, he asked in a voice as cold as ice, “Let me ask you again, will you truly not regret this?”
Benjamin’s pride did not allow him to give someone repeated chances. Now that he could ask Martina twice in a row, he could tell how different she was in his heart.
“Yes,” Martina replied softly but firmly. She then wiped away her tears roughly, as if afraid he wouldn’t believe her. Turning around, she looked directly into Benjamin’s eyes and said, “Thank you for taking care of me all these years. From now on, we don’t owe each
What a “we don’t owe each other anything”!
Benjamin had come here to solve the problem and take Martina home. But what was she doing? Insisting on breaking up with him?
At this moment, the air pressure in the entire room seemed to drop, and Martina even
felt a little breathless.
As Benjamin walked step by step towards Martina, the two of them became once again inescapable and even had skin contact.
The air was filled with an undeniable anger, as if he wanted to swallow Martina whole Benjamin towered over Martina, as if trying to see through her true thoughts.
Martina almost couldn’t help but hold Benjamin’s hand and say, “Let’s stop fighting and go home, okay?” But she didn’t.
Benjamin coldly moved his lips, “Since this is your decision, then as you wish.” In that moment, he seemed to become the same person he was many years ago.
Then Benjamin didn’t hesitate any longer, turned around and left without looking back.
With a bang, as the door closed, Martina couldn’t control her emotions anymore and
collapsed on the ground, crying softly.
“Benjamin…” She murmured.
It was over. Everything was really over. By speaking those words today, she had undoubtedly trampled on Benjamin’s pride and self-esteem.”
Given Benjamin’s personality, he would never have any contact with her again.
From now on, there would be no more relationships between her and him, and she had
really did it.
Why did her heart feel like it was suffocating with pain now? Why she couldn’t feel any
joy at all?
Instead, she urgently wanted to fall asleep on the ground and never wake up again. The past between them kept playing in her mind like a movie, constantly stimulating
Martina didn’t know how long she had been crying, and her makeup was already ruined. She slowly stood up, supporting herself on the sofa, her whole body trembling
She thought of the look Benjamin gave her when he left just now. He must hate her to
Martina grabbed a tissue from the table and wiped away her tears casually. She rubbed her empty and weak stomach, which had been hungry for a long time.
She walked numbly to the kitchen and made herself Pasta. Perhaps due to her distraction, it wasn’t until she took a bite that Martina realized there was no salt in the dish, making it unappetizing.
But it didn’t matter. As long as she could fill her stomach, it was good enough. Even the most difficult-to-swallow food was nothing compared to the bitterness in her heart right
It’s okay. Time can dilute everything, and everything will eventually pass. No one will wait for anyone forever. Martina should also look forward, after all, she and Benjamin were really over.
