Chapter 54: She Was Almost Discovered
Martina quickly grabbed the bottle of water she had prepared earlier and guzzled down nearly half-of it.
But that uncomfortable feeling still persisted, making Martina’s mood increasingly
Anyway, it was not a big deal as long as she could successfully escape. She was
willing to endure all this pain.
Despite the sea breeze, the uncomfortable sensation persisted, causing beads of sweat to form on Martina’s forehead, and her body involuntarily trembled.
Perhaps due to Martina’s prolonged time spent outside and her apparent discomfort, it caught the attention of a male passenger on the ship, who approached her.
The man’s tone relaxed and filled with concern, asking, “Ma’am, are you okay? Do you
need any help?”
Martina’s heart skipped a beat upon hearing that voice! She could tell that it was a
distinctive accent from LA.
This person must have come from LA, traveling a long way to this place by boat. It couldn’t be just a coincidence; maybe he was one of Benjamin’s subordinates.
Martina instantly felt even more uncomfortable, but in order to not arouse suspicion, she tried to maintain her composure and shook her head.
To prevent the other person from noticing anything, Martina intentionally changed her accent when speaking, “Ah’m fine, jus’ feelin’ a wee bit seasick. Ah’ll be awricht efter haein’ a
rest fur a while.”
The man had doubts about her initially, until he heard Martina’s accent and saw her
A woman who looked this ugly with makeup, how would she look without it??
In his memory, Miss Martinez was supposed to be very beautiful, so this person
definitely wasn’t Miss Martinez and had no connection whatsoever!
The man let go of his guard, confirming that she wasn’t Martina, and kindly took out a spray for her, saying, “Oh, I see. My friend also gets seasick, so I carry a spray that can alleviate the aftereffects. Would you like to try some?”
It was better to be cautious, as who knew what this person’s intentions were and whether he recognized her or not.
Martina shook her head and said, “Naw, cheers. Ah can dae it masel.”
The man boarded the ship to conduct an investigation. As for anything else, it didn’t matter to him. “Well, take care of yourself. If you know you get seasick when you’re
from home, make sure to be prepared next time. Don’t make yourself so uncomfortable,” he
said as he left to join the others.
It was only then that Martina noticed there were many suspicious individuals on the
ship alone, at least 10 or more.
They were spread out in every corner of the ship, about two meters apart from each. other, clearly conducting a deliberate search.
Had it not been for her disguise, wearing an age-inappropriate floral dress and her
current disheveled appearance, she would have been instantly recognized. It’s highly
probable that they would have apprehended her right away.
Benjamin was really ruthless, no wonder he left so calmly. Turned out he had already prepared in advance.
He knew Martina would choose to leave at this moment, so he made all these people
wait on the ship!
It was a pity that Benjamin definitely didn’t expect Martina was in disguise.
Martina thought for a moment, maybe that person discovered something and might come back, so she immediately left that troublesome place.
She wanted to find another place to stay for a while. Currently, she was on the ship, and even if she wanted to leave, there was no time. She could only wait until the ship
‘docked and then went ashore.
Just after the man who had been chatting with Martina left, he started discussing with his colleagues by his side..
“Where have you been? Don’t you know that leaving your post without permission could get you in trouble with the boss?” one of his colleagues said.
Whether it was trouble or not, getting a good beating was definitely guaranteed.
The man quickly rubbed his head and explained, “I saw someone who looked a lot like Miss Martinez, but when I got closer, I realized they were different.”
The other man instantly became interested, “Really? Did you double-check, just in case it’s Miss Martinez intentionally disguising herself? You should know by now, Miss Martinez has been quite formidable lately, manipulating our boss and getting him scolded. How much trouble has he gotten into because of her?”
The man who chatted with Martina felt a bit puzzled, “It’s unlikely. That woman is somewhat ugly-looking. The makeup on her face was really heavy, and she had a different accent. I think I must have been mistaken!”
The two of them chatted for a while and felt it wasn’t interesting, so they didn’t dwell
on it anymore.
“Alright then, we have to continue observing. If anything seems off, we must infe boss immediately! Otherwise, if Miss Martinez disappears right under our noses, we in
big trouble. Our wages for the whole year might go down the drain.”
Martina returned to the cabin and found a corner with fewer people to sit down. The cabin was even more stuffy, and she soon felt more uncomfortable.
She thought of a time in the past when she had gone to great lengths to persuade Benjamin to take her to a business negotiation on the yacht.
Initially, she was very happy, thinking that she was finally getting closer to Benjamin and
entering his life.
Little did she know that something unexpected happened during that trip. Martina was
bullied by someone on the yacht.
While Benjamin was discussing business, someone took the opportunity to approach Martina, strike up a conversation, and even made inappropriate advances towards her. However, just as this was happening, Benjamin returned from his cooperative discussion and caught sight of the situation. In an instant, he gave the person a good
It was truly a night of blood and chaos. Martina remembered that guy being carried off the yacht later, and it seemed like he spent a full three months in the hospital.
Unfortunately, things had changed now. Initially, she thought that Benjamin protected her because of love.
But thinking about it now, it seemed that his behavior was driven by nothing more than his pride and peculiar possessiveness as a man. It certainly had nothing to do with love. Martina finished all the water she brought but still felt incredibly uncomfortable. She then bought a cup of juice on the ship, hoping to alleviate the sour and bitter taste in her
Meanwhile, the two men who had previously approached Martina couldn’t shake off the feeling that something was off. They thought that they would rather wrongly identify someone than let Martina go.
They informed Leslie about this news. “Boss, we saw someone on the ship just now who had a silhouette resembling Miss Martinez, but when we got closer, we realized they
Leslie was extremely busy, with occasional noises in the background, but he still patiently asked, “How do they look different?”
