Chapter 46: Even He Was Fooled!
Elena still didn’t understand the meaning behind Martina’s words. She asked directly, “Wait a minute, I don’t quite understand. What’s going on? Why are you making me more.
confused as you explain?”
Martina patiently explained the situation that happened between her and Benjamin at
Upon hearing about the thrilling and exhilarating ordeal that Martina had gone through, Elena was greatly astonished and exclaimed, “Martina, I can’t believe how much you’ve changed. In the past, you would have been terrified in a situation like that.”
“But I never expected that you could handle it so fearlessly. You even fooled Benjamin!” Elena grew more and more excited, even her tone became lively.
“If he finds that he was just one bed board away from you, and he didn’t even realize it, he will be absolutely frustrated.”
That was true. Considering Benjamin’s personality, once he found out about this, he would definitely be very frustrated. But regardless, it happened.
Elena was truly amazed by the competence and remarkable transformation of Martina. Martina smiled faintly, and upon closer inspection, one could notice that the smile on her face was indeed forced, not from the bottom of her heart.
“It was just out of luck. Actually, I was quite scared too. If he had discovered me, he would have taken me back, and it would have been even harder for me to leave then.”
As the conversation continued, Elena noticed that there was a faint sound of flowing
water where Martina was.
Curiosity got the better of Elena, and she couldn’t help but ask, “Why do I feel like I hear the sound of running water on your end? Is there a leak in the room or something?” As she said that, Elena worried and said, “No matter where you’re staying, you should always ensure your own safety. You must take precautions to avoid such situations.
“What if something happens to you? You don’t have anyone around to take care of you.
Don’t scare me.”
Martina could feel Elena’s concern but just said, “There’s nothing to worry about. I’m just on a ship.”
Elena suddenly felt like she had countless question marks hovering over her head, and even her voice became sharp, “A ship? Why are you in bed? Are you planning to just sail? Or go abroad?!”
She truly had no understanding of her best friend’s current thoughts and intentions, anu coupled with Martina’s resolute demeanor, it was really hard not to suspect anything.
Martina shook his head, realizing that Elena couldn’t see her and she had to speak up. again, “I’m not going abroad, but I do need to find a new place to stay. I can’t stay in these
“Although I don’t know what methods Benjamin used, I need to ensure my own safety.
as much as possible.”
She couldn’t let the same thing happen again under any circumstances.
That was the simple thought in Martina’s mind now, and everything else seemed less
“Alright, it’s getting late, I won’t talk to you anymore. I’ll contact you once I have everything settled,” Martina said, realized she couldn’t talk too long. “If Benjamin comes looking for you during this time, remember to ignore him. Just treat him as if he doesn’t
Despite her words, it remained uncertain whether Elena would be able to follow
Perhaps it was because Martina hadn’t been on a ship for a long time, she felt. uncomfortable after spending some time on board.
Especially the constant feeling of nausea, which made Martina very uncomfortable. To make herself feel better, she decided to go out for some fresh air.
Fortunately, the ship was nearing the first port of call at that moment.
This landing point seemed to be a fishing village called Timbercrest Village.
It sounded poetic, but it looked quite remote.
Generally, it was unlikely for someone to come here to settle down individually or specifically because the conditions here seemed too basic.
However, Martina immediately had an idea. She couldn’t stay on the ship for too long, so it might be better to disembark nearby.
Perhaps it could give her a glimmer of hope and prevent Benjamin from discovering her
Benjamin already knew that she had left and there was a possibility that he knew she
took a ship.
But he didn’t know the exact location she was heading to. The most dangerous place might be the safest. It was worth a try.
Inside the cabin, Adam and his friends were sitting by the window, seemingly impatient, as they had already started gambling openly.
They were betting a considerable amount of money, and if caught, they would undoubtedly face legal consequences. They had quite the audacity.
Just as Adam was getting into the game, his gaze unintentionally fell upon a figure
outside the window.
It was the same woman who had ignored his approaches earlier, and this sight made Adam unable to resist stealing a few more glances.
“Isn’t that the woman? How dare she ignore my approaches She’s truly foolish!” said Adam, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth, ashes floating around His expression was both arrogant and disgusting, clearly not someone who appeared to be a good person.
However, he seemed unaffected and continued to gamble with others, as if it were the
most important thing to him.
At most, Adam couldn’t help but take a few more looks at Martina’s figure, perhaps
because her figure was too captivating.
Even though her face was hidden, it didn’t seem to bother Adam, or perhaps, deep down, Adam actually had some feelings for Martina.
It was only because of Benjamin’s identity and preconceived notions that Adam had
concealed his true feelings.
But in reality, he did have feelings towards Martina. It was just that now they were becoming more evident.
One of Adam’s friends noticed his distracted state. “Hey, Adam, need us to tie that woman to the bed for you?” he jokingly asked. “You know what? Sometimes a little assertiveness is what women like. Even if they say no, deep down they’re probably thrilled.”
Adam waved his hand, pretending to be uninterested, but it was also for the sake
“Forget it, I’m not interested in playing games with a woman who plays hard to get She’s just a woman, and it’s not like I can’t find another. No need to have a one-sided cru
on her,” he said.
The group burst into laughter at his words, saying, “That’s right, that kind of woman doesn’t deserve a second glance from Mr. Paloma. Don’t bother with her!”
