Chapter 30: Wishing You a Happy and Fulfilling Life
She said, “Elena, take a few days off from work and spend the last moments with me. These might be my last two days of freedom.”
At this moment, Elena wished she could bear it all instead of Martina, but she couldn’t. No one could control Benjamin. Curiously, she asked, “Taking leave is not a problem, but
what do you want to do?”
With only two days left, what else could they do?
Martina smiled faintly, feeling as if she had undergone a drastic transformation in this moment. She didn’t know if she had figured things out or completely given up. She said, “I want to go on a trip. Do you remember the things we talked about when we were about to graduate from college? If I could visit Carlsbad once in this lifetime, it would be worth it.”
Elena immediately slammed the table and declared, “Alright! Let’s seize the day and depart now. I’ll book the flight tickets!” Elena rolled up her sleeves with great enthusiasm. “Even if we only have two days, we must cherish them! As the saying goes, there is always a way out. I believe that after tomorrow, we will find a our way out!”
Without any delay, they swiftly reached the Hollywood Burbank Airport merely an hour later. Their strides were purposeful as they made their way towards the check-in counter, emanating a resolute determination.
In Elena’s view, after these two days, Martina would return to that cage, and she might
never be able to be as carefree as she was now.
While there was still time, they had to indulge themselves, no matter what, to make. their lives worthwhile. It would be even better if they could meet some handsome guys in
Why should Martina always be at the mercy of Benjamin, coming and going as he pleased? Since she couldn’t resist, it wouldn’t hurt to make some changes, right?
Feeling a bit impatient, Elena said, “I heard there are plenty of handsome guys over there. This time, we must make the most of it and have a great time!”
Martina was the one who booked the flight tickets. So Elena didn’t even realize what
For example, Elena’s ticket had Carlsbad as the final destination, but Martina’s did not.
Martina opened her mouth as if she had something to say, but in the end, it all got
stuck in her throat.
She simply looked at Elena with teary eyes and said, “When we get to Carlsbad, pleas don’t act impulsively. Enjoy yourself for these two days. After two days, maybe everyt
will be over.”
It’s unclear whether she was saying this to Elena or warning herself.
Elena gave Martina a big hug in return. “Don’t worry, don’t you know my personality? You are my sister, she said. “Besides, you’re here too, right? Even if I do something foolish, I have a sister to support me. That sense of security is really comforting!”
Before long, the two of them boarded the plane together, heading to their long-awaited
However, due to booking the earliest flights available, they departed only a minute apart
and ended up on different planes.
Elena anxiously reminded Martina, “Don’t talk to strangers on the plane. Let’s meet at
the north side of the airport when we arrive!”
Martina nodded earnestly and smiled through her tears, saying, “Yeah, I know. I’m not a
child. Do I really need you to teach me such trivial matters?”
Elena boarded the plane but couldn’t shake off a sense of uneasiness. She messaged
Martina, “No matter what happens, I’ll be by your side, always your strongest support!”
At the same time, Martina had already boarded a different plane.
Her destination was not Carlsbad, but a neighboring city instead.
Because Martina knew that even if she wanted to escape using the opportunity of
traveling, she couldn’t truly escape from Benjamin’s grasp.
Because everything controlled by Benjamin was far more terrifying than she had imagined. For instance, everything she had done early on couldn’t escape Benjamin’s watchful eyes.
For example, whenever she threw a small tantrum, she would deliberately leave home i a grand manner and find a secluded or inconspicuous upscale hotel.
She thought she hid herself well, hoping to make Benjamin worry about her and care
for her more, but she never succeeded.
Benjamin consistently managed to establish contact with her, skillfully pinpointed her exact location, disarmed her, compelled her to surrender, and successfully escorted her
Later, Martina probably understood that Benjamin’s power was immense. He could access her bank account or find out which car or plane she took through various means.
Including the exact departure time, it was simply a piece of cake.
So this time, Martina planned to take a desperate gamble. If she succeeded, she wou welcome the most radiant future. But if she failed, she would truly be captured and have
Everyone would continue to laugh at her, becoming even more convinced that she was Benjamin’s bootlicker.
Everyone would say that everything she did was shameless and only for the sake of attracting Benjamin’s attention.
Even Benjamin’s mother would continue with her haughty demeanor, telling her that she
must be obedient.
Even if Benjamin had three or four lovers outside, it could only be said that she was not
competent enough to satisfy him.
She considered herself nothing more than an ordinary girl, realizing that she was
fundamentally unworthy of marrying into a wealthy family.
Everyone thought she was only after Benjamin’s status, wanting to marry into a wealthy
But only Martina herself was acutely aware that this so-called prestigious family was
nothing but rubbish. She had no desire to marry into it, not in the slightest!
Because Martina was afraid of implicating Elena, she planned to escape secretly on her
own this time.
However, for safety reasons, she still used some methods to deceive Benjamin’s eyes.
Initially, Benjamin would definitely think that Martina and Elena were together. However,
in reality, she had already disembarked at a separate location, making her way towards a
destination he couldn’t imagine.
The longer she could confuse Benjamin, the greater her chance of escaping. This made
the situation particularly difficult and risky, but it was the only opportunity and method she
It was just unfortunate for her good friend, Elena, who had to make this trip in vain.
She hoped that her friend wouldn’t be angry with her for this.
Martina uttered in her mind, “Elena, it’s already been a little bit too late for me to start.
over in my lifetime. I just hope that from now on, I can cut my losses in time. But your life.
is still long.
“I don’t want to affect the rest of your life. I hope your future is filled with happiness
and fulfillment, at least don’t end up like me. I sincerely wish you happiness.”
Martina reappeared in the neighboring city, San Diego.
To avoid being tracked down by Benjamin through the internet or other means, Martin
sent a message to Elena and promptly turned off her phone.
Then, at the airport exit, she found a taxi driver and aimlessly wandered the stre
