Chapter 27: You Bet on a Lifetime?
After about half an hour, the dinner came to an end. Ms. Bridge happened to have at
friend arrive, so Martina bid farewell to her and planned to leave.
They agreed to have a proper meal together next time, along with Elena.
After the farewell, Martina headed towards the exit and sent her location to Elena,
wanting to know where she was waiting.
To her surprise, as soon as she stepped out, she encountered an unwelcome guest. It
turned out to be one of the hangers-on who followed Adam Paloma!
Martina instantly felt disgusted and wondered if she had been bad luck recently.
The sky had already turned completely dark, and if it weren’t for the bright lights nearby,
Martina would have felt a bit apprehensive.
Martina deliberately lowered her head and was about to leave the place and avoid.
unnecessary trouble. However, the guy had no intention of letting her go easily.
One of them, clearly a spoiled brat, positioned himself in front of Martina and spoke with a mocking tone, “Well, well, look who we have here! It’s Mr. Walker’s follower, or should.
I say, his bootlicker.”
Indeed, many people had previously likened Martina to a bootlicker, claiming that
without Benjamin, she couldn’t survive, just like a fish out of water.
But now, the situation between Benjamin and Martina had changed, and she was not
longer the same person who was solely focused on him.
Martina’s expression turned cold and elegant as she firmly stated, “Get out of my way!”
How impatient she was with these individuals!
However, these individuals seemed to become even more aggressive, repeatedly
provoking her, “Well, well, well, Martinez, what’s with the act of being so high and mighty
“Stop pretending to be superior now. You can not erase all the messed up things you’ve
“You shamelessly stuck to Mr. Walker’s side all the time, and now you dare to act.
Martina’s expression grew even calmer because she could clearly sense that these people were deliberately looking for trouble with her. She said, “Please step aside, it seems.
we’re not that familiar with each other.”
One of them patted his bald head, showing a disgusting behavior, “Well, well, look at
you with your temper. By the way, Martinez, don’t you want to know what kind of bet we
made among our brothers regarding you?”
Martina raised her eyebrows, suppressing her anger, and asked, “What bet?”
One of them said, “We bet on how long you can stay away from Mr. Walker. I bet on
Another person said, “I bet on twenty days!”
“What? I bet she won’t last more than three days! A bootlicker is a bootlicker, how could she give up the life of luxury and go back to normal?”
Martina had completely lost her patience. See, this was what she had gained after persisting for so long. Except for one disrespectful person after another appearing before her, she had gained nothing.
Martina glanced coldly at them and said, “Well, you will all lose your bets. I’ll make a bet with you too. I bet on a lifetime.”
After saying that, Martina didn’t waste any more time. She quickened her pace, passing by them and soon disappeared from their sight.
It took Martina quite a while to calm herself down again, and she happened to receive a message from Elena.
Martina rubbed her temples, feeling that these recent events were truly absurd.
There were actually people betting on her personal matters. What did they take her for? A mere joke or plaything?
Unfortunately, even if she was treated as a plaything, there would come a day when she
would awaken her intelligence. Right now, she just wanted to live for herself.
Martina followed the location sent by Elena and walked towards the parking lot.
The parking lot was a bit far from the hotel because the hotel was really busy. T
couldn’t even find a small parking space. Elena had to settle for a more remote parking
At this moment, Elena was in an underground parking lot, and Martina had to go dow
and search one by one.
However, as Martina was just passing through this area, she suddenly felt a darkness in
front of her, and she was firmly grabbed by a figure.
Martina was startled and instinctively tried to resist, but then she smelled a very
familiar scent. There wouldn’t be anyone else but that man.
Now Martina was trapped in the man’s embrace, unable to break free from his restraint.
Meanwhile, the man held her tightly, as if he had the impulse to merge her into his
Martina furrowed her eyebrows and said, “Mr. Walker, don’t you think this behavior is a bit petty? It doesn’t seem like your style.”
Hearing Martina’s sharp words, there was no trace of relaxation in Benjamin’s. expression.
Just thinking about what Martina said in front of those people earlier, his eyes were filled with indelible anger.
He firmly grasped Martina’s chin and, taking advantage of her unpreparedness, turned her whole body around.
At this moment, the two of them were face to face, close enough to almost-
Benjamin’s pupils exuded an icy coldness as he spoke with a chilling voice, interrogating, “You are betting on a lifetime?”
Martina was stunned for a moment, then suddenly realized, could it be that Benjamin had heard all the things she said earlier?
If not for this, Benjamin would never have rashly uttered such words.
Martina inexplicably felt a little uneasy, “How much did you hear?”
The answer must be “anything”.
Benjamin left with Martina one after the other, just in time to see she being bullied and hear what they were saying.
Benjamin initially thought Martina was just throwing a tantrum at him, but this time her anger was much greater than before.
However, Benjamin never thought that Martina really wanted to leave him. Even though her words were severe, they couldn’t be separated.
But Martina actually said in front of so many people that she wanted to separate from him for a lifetime. Did she really intend to break up?
Benjamin pinched Martina’s chin, forcing her to look into his eyes and asked, “Martina, I
didn’t know you had such a strong determination before. When did you develop this idea?”
In Benjamin’s view, this couldn’t have happened overnight. If not for long-term planning,
how could she be so resolute this time?
Because of this, the restlessness in Benjamin’s heart could no longer be put into words.
He was thinking about how to calm the anger in this woman’s heart, while she was
thinking about how to completely separate from him.
Clearly, they were both considering each other, but their thoughts were completely
