Chapter 35: He Clearly Knew It Was a Fantasy
Indeed, Benjamin had a strong desire for control over Martina.
Ever since they met and got to know each other, their interaction had always been this
Martina had always been obedient to Benjamin’s words. She would not utter a word even if it meant suppressing her own feelings.
Most of the time, she would swallow her pride, so as not to cause Benjamin to worry
However, Martina’s recent behaviors had made Benjamin feel like his previous efforts
were nothing but a joke.
All those sweet words, all those promises and assurances, in the end, they were only exchanged for Martina silently disappearing.
She did it on purpose.
In addition to that, Benjamin couldn’t think of a better motive.
He had been longing to bring her back, while she was quietly planning how to leave. The stark difference in their thoughts made Benjamin’s heart feel like a raging dragon being scorched by flames.
His temper had been very bad, and now, after being rejected and abandoned by Martina time and time again, it was even worse.
Benjamin was filled with rage at the moment, with nowhere to vent, and no one could
withstand his fury.
Simon followed behind Benjamin and could clearly sense that his boss was in an extremely bad mood.
The boss’s mood seemed good before he left, now it was like his world was falling
Not only that, but the boss’s expression seemed as if he wanted to kill someone, which was truly terrifying.
Simon dared not breathe and could only cautiously follow along, feeling as if he were dying in that moment.
Simon wouldn’t foolishly ask the boss why he was like this. If he guessed correctly, Miss Martinez was probably not at the apartment.
Where else could Miss Martinez have gone? Did she leave by chance or was it
Just at that mornent, Benjamin couldn’t hold back anymore and forcefully smashed the glass in front of him onto the ground.
“Check the entry and exit records of Martina in the community these past few days. Find out where she has been,” Benjamin ordered.
His whole being was so suppressed, like the king of hell, making everyone too afraid to
Simon nodded obediently and quickly left.
The other members of the assistant team all wore confused expressions and dared not
say a word to the boss.
On the other hand, Elizabeth, who couldn’t figure out the situation, approached
She had planned to find someone to play cards with, but unexpectedly, her son had returned at this time like never before. She also vaguely heard Benjamin mention Martina’s.
Could it be that he had intentionally cleared up so much time today for Martina?
That was absurd! Clearly, her son’s time was extremely valuable, worth so much money every minute! Martina was simply a bitch that was wasting her son’s time!
Elizabeth pretended as if she hadn’t heard anything and approached, saying, “Son, what’s wrong with you again? Aren’t you supposed to be busy with work today?”
Benjamin’s current mood was poor, and he couldn’t pretend to be enthusiastic towards
his mother either.
At this moment, Benjamin seemed to have no desire to listen to anyone or reveal his temper in front of his mother. Without uttering a word, he got up and made his way towards the second floor.
Elizabeth felt embarrassed, but after all, he was her son, and she still relied on him for her livelihood. Even if she felt embarrassed, what could she do?
She directed her inquisitive gaze at the members of the assistant team and questioned in an unfriendly tone, “What’s wrong with my son today? What’s the reason behind his anger? I expect a reasonable explanation from all of you!”
The members of the assistant team shook their heads one after another and said, “We don’t know either. The boss said today is a day off with no work scheduled.”
Speaking of which, they were also very confused. According to past arrangements and working habits, how could the boss really not have any work scheduled for the entire day? Elizabeth felt strange. So, there was actually such a thing. It seemed that her son was indeed doing this for Martina!
She had previously said that Martina was a misfortune deity, and now it seemed to be
For Martina, her son had become unrecognizable and even wanted to skip work. This
couldn’t be allowed!
At this moment, Benjamin had no intention of caring about what his mother was thinking. Instead, he returned to the bedroom where he and Martina had spent many
intimate moments together.
There were many traces of their life together here, even though he spent most of his
time living in hotels for work.
But at least besides the hotels, this was the only place he had stayed.
Benjamin’s thoughts were somewhat hazy, and he vaguely saw Martina sitting by the
She smiled sweetly at him and said, “Benjamin, why did you come back so late? I want
Benjamin was about to approach her, but it seemed like something struck him, and he abruptly stopped in his tracks.
Finally, Martina appeared in front of the dressing table, still looking at Benjamin with
that infectious smile.
“Benjamin, do you think my makeup looked good today? Well, do you think Elizabeth
will like it?”
“Benjamin, you said you would accompany me to the theme park, but it has been 6 years, and you couldn’t even spare a single day, could you?”
Benjamin moved his lips, on the verge of speaking, but ultimately stayed silent, afraid that opening his mouth would cause the illusion before him to instantly disappear.
Unfortunately, even so, the illusion didn’t last long.
In Benjamin’s line of sight, the image of Martina gradually changed.
She no longer smiled sweetly at him as she did before, nor were her eyes solely
focused on him.
Instead, there was an obstinate grievance mingled with a strong sense of rebellion. “Benjamin, I’ve told you before that I want to break up with you. Don’t you understand?” “If you don’t understand, let me say it again. Please don’t ever appear in front of me
“Who do you think you are? Why should I appear just because you want me to? But you’ve never been there for me when I needed you!”
“Benjamin, I hate you!”
These last few words instantly turned Benjamin’s eyes bloodshot.
“Martina!” He almost gritted his teeth as he shouted that name, swiftly approaching the
Then Martina’s figure completely disappeared, along with the vanishing of those illusory
Benjamin knew it was an illusion, yet he couldn’t help but wish that the illusion could
last a little longer.
His gaze unintentionally fell upon the corner of the room covered by the curtain, where there appeared to be a large carton box.
What could be inside it?
