Chapter 43 A Sense of Compassion
Martina could feel the gradual approach of Benjamin’s long legs towards the edge of
the bed, until he suddenly sat down.
The distinct masculine aura that belonged to a man permeated the air and reached
She held her breath, afraid to make any movement or sound.
Whether it was due to nervousness or something else, tiny beads of sweat even formed
on Martina’s forehead.
Her inner voice kept shouting. “Leave quickly!”
Given Benjamin’s personality, he would never willingly come to such a shabby place, yet
here he was, sitting down.
Everyone else kept their heads down, not daring to make a sound, fearing to bear the
brunt of Benjamin’s fury.
Benjamin noticed the way the sheets on the bed were folded, in a unique manner that
he could tell was done by Martina.
She had indeed stayed in this place before, but she had left once again, just to avoid
The moment the intense feeling of Martina avoiding him crossed his mind, Benjamin had the urge to see what was hiding inside her head. What could be in her mind? Were there all just mush?
He only asked her to come back and even assured her that she could tell anything she
didn’t like to him.
But why was Martina still not satisfied?
Benjamin didn’t say a word. Instead, he unconsciously recalled what Elena said to him a
couple of days ago.
“Benjamin, you are indeed formidable and strong, especially in the business world. You
“But when it comes to relationships, you are a blunt and stubborn man!
“You don’t know how to respect someone, you don’t understand what true love is, and you have no idea what it’s like to be in a relationship!
“Martina does love you, but if her affection keeps going unanswered, someday it will be completely wasted.
“Do you really not understand such a simple thing? It’s like when you cooperate with someone, both you and the other person are undoubtedly aiming to gain more income Relationships work the same way!”
At that time, Benjamin didn’t take those words to heart, but now he kept pondering over
Thinking back to his interactions with Martina, he realized that she had indeed put in. more effort because he didn’t know how to properly handle a girl.
If Martina was willing to come back, he could try to change himself.
However, where was she exactly?
Time seemed to pass by without notice as Martina continued to maintain her position, tightly pressed against the ground, feeling the discomfort of her body being strained.
Finally, Benjamin spoke slowly, “Keep searching. If we find her, no matter what it takes, we must bring her back, even if it means forcefully bringing her back.”
Martina’s heart skipped a beat. Did he really mean he would even kidnap her?
Like she had thought, Benjamin didn’t have genuine feelings for her. Otherwise, why did he arrange things this way?
Martina shook her head in self-derision, silently waiting for the right moment.
She had thought that everything was arranged properly, and Benjamin would surely
leave with his people.
But Martina noticed that Benjamin remained seated by the bed, seemingly occupied with something, showing no intention of leaving.]
She couldn’t help but curse inwardly. Would it never end? Was he unable to see her well? Couldn’t he just go?
The man sitting by the bed took out his phone and opened Martina’s SnapChat
He typed in the chat box repeatedly, only to delete the messages again and again.
the In the end, the chat box contained only a short line, “Come back, I’ll give you
freedom you want.”
However, in the end, he didn’t send that message. Even if he did, the message couldn’t
Benjamin imagined how Martina must be living in this place, in this small and shaby
Honestly, he was truly not accustomed to it at all. How could this be the place where Martina lived? She should be with him.
Perhaps because he had been pondering over their past memories, the man’s headache grew worse and worse.
Normally, Benjamin’s temper would be gone if Martina just comforted him at this time. But recently, she even repeatedly challenged his bottom line, not only by renting a house outside but also by disregarding his requests.
Even when she knew he would come to pick her up, instead of waiting at home, she chose to completely disappear from the world.
Benjamin’s temper had long reached its limit.
It wouldn’t be surprising to say that he had the impulse to kill, given the circumstances.
If it weren’t for the fact that he still hadn’t been able to find Martina, his emotions
would have already collapsed.
It was precisely because he held onto the last shred of sanity, determined to find Martina no matter what, that he could persist until now.
Martina had been waiting for a long time, so long that she was almost falling asleep.
But Benjamin hadn’t left yet, and she couldn’t help but wonder what was wrong with
this man, why wasn’t he leaving?
With a curious and anxious heart, Martina slowly crawled out from under the bed, looking somewhat disheveled.
She cautiously looked at the bed and found that Benjamin had actually fallen asleep. Yes, no wonder he had been quiet all this time, it turned out he had unknowingly fallen
It was quite unbelievable to Martina. But now that Benjamin was asleep, she finally had the chance to carefully look at him.
Under his eyes, there were faint dark circles. She wondered how long he had been
To be honest, Martina couldn’t help but feel a sense of compassion towards him. After all, she had truly loved this man for six years, even though those years had been wasted. But the emotions she had back then were real.
If Benjamin had been like this from the beginning, giving her the illusion that he was not dispensable, even if it was just an illusion. Maybe she wouldn’t have left so decisively.
Unfortunately, there was no turning back.
Martina looked at the face that was so close, and she felt an impulse to touch it.
It had been such a long time since she had seen this man.
Even though their previous encounters had all ended on unpleasant terms, to the point where she didn’t have a chance to see if he had changed during this time.
Just as Martina’s fingertips were about to touch Benjamin’s cheek, she seemed to have realized something and quickly withdrew her hand, then immediately left the place.
