Chapter 57: She Truly Knew She Was Wrong
Despite Simon’s desire to assist with their relationship, he was unable to do so. Because he didn’t understand too much about relationships since he had never been in one.
There was a frostiness in the depths of Benjamin’s eyes, descending slowly and
Martina couldn’t help but tremble, and the disgust in her eyes didn’t seem fake.
“Benjamin, if I could turn back time, I would rather have never met you. In the years we were together, I have never been happy!” she said with a trembling voice.
It was not just the lack of happiness; Martina had even lost herself. She had sacrificed
too much for Benjamin.
And what did she get in return? Being labeled as a gold digger with ulterior motives by others! All of this was overly harsh for a woman, and she had long been tired.
Previously, Benjamin struggled to maintain a semblance of rationality, but now his rationality had completely collapsed.
What Martina said had touched the sensitive nerve of Benjamin! When she had said all
these things, Benjamin didn’t want to explain more.
It seemed that Benjamin had been overly indulgent towards Martina during this time, otherwise, these things wouldn’t have happened.
“Martina, have I spoiled you too much? Benjamin questioned, his voice trembling ever so slightly, almost imperceptible to himself. He had been trying hard to control himself, to restrain his anger, because he didn’t want Martina to drift further away from him.
But now, no matter how much he restrained himself, it seemed to be in vain. Martina
seemed determined to leave him.
At this moment, a dark cloud seemed to loom above Benjamin’s head. He was unable
to utter a word.
Martina remained the same, but she deeply digged her nails into her palm, as if it was the only way to gather her thoughts bit by bit. Otherwise, she was truly afraid that she might collapse the next second.
In reality, she was also deeply weary. Given the chance, she wouldn’t have expressed her words in such an explicit and ugly manner. Unfortunately, she has no way out now.
Martina had also done her best. If Benjamin had truly given her a chance to leave openly and honestly, perhaps her resistance wouldn’t be so strong.
*Benjamin, you are an esteemed heir, standing high above, while I am just an ordinary person,” Martina said slowly. “We never belonged in the same world to begin with. Now tha I’ve realized it and awakened from the dream, why deceive ourselves here…”
Martina said something else afterward, but Benjamin didn’t pay attention. However, he
stubbornly and forcefully grabbed Martina’s arm, exerting so much strength that Martina
could barely bear it.
Benjamin’s gaze, deep and intense, fell upon Martina, saying, “No matter what you say, you can’t expect to leave.”
He had long made up his mind, which was why he went to such great lengths to find
Now that Martina expressed her desire to leave, it would ultimately depend on whether Benjamin was willing to let her go or not.
The moment Martina stepped onto Benjamin’s ship, she realized that leaving wouldn’t be an easy task. This precisely reflected the current situation between them.
Benjamin was inherently paranoid and terrifying, especially now when his rationality was
Martina could only feel intense pain in her wrist, yet she refused to give in. She struggled relentlessly, trying to pull her arm back. “Let go of me, Benjamin! Release me right
Little did Martina know that her actions would only further enrage Benjamin.
Benjamin was never one to speak kindly, and that hadn’t changed now. Without saying a “word, he imprisoned Martina in his embrace.
Depriving Martina of any opportunity to escape, his voice possessed an icy coldness capable of sending shivers down one’s spine. “Martina, you best think it through. You were the one who repeatedly claimed that you would never leave my side forever. Now you say you want to leave. Don’t you find it ridiculous?”
Martina was too weak to break free, feeling like she could faint any moment. And at this moment, Benjamin spoke again, “I gave you a chance before, and it was you who insisted on staying by my side without hesitation. What are you doing here now?”
“I’ve already told you, I can fulfill what you want, but leaving is absolutely impossible.” Benjamin’s words grew quieter, almost to a whisper, but Martina could still hear them clearly. It was evident that Benjamin was subtly threatening her.
“Look, if I can find you once again, I can find you next time,” Benjamin continued saying. “If you don’t believe me, I can give you another chance. But the next time I find you, I will break your legs, leaving you with absolutely no possibility of escape. Do you want to give it a try?”
Martina couldn’t help but tremble violently again.
The words Benjamin spoke now were like intentionally rubbing salt into Martina’s heart. Why did he have to bring up past things?
She truly knew she was wrong, which was why she wanted to correct it in time and
leave Benjamin’s side as soon as possible.
The words Benjamin spoke now suddenly captured all her attention once again!
Did she really have an inherent need to always stay by his side, like a little pet?
She couldn’t allow herself to be manipulated. Even if it meant sacrificing everything, she
was determined to make a change!
“Benjamin,” Martina said weakly, “are you really going to be so heartless? Fine, I…” Before Martina could finish speaking, she was unsure whether it was Benjamin’s words that had struck her or if it was due to her unwellness. Suddenly, her body lost control, and weakness overcame her. In the next instant, she collapsed, engulfed by drowsiness, her heart burdened with an overwhelming sense of regret and sorrow.
This accident left everyone present wide-eyed. They never expected Martina to suddenly
However, just as Martina was about to hit the ground, Benjamin caught her firmly.
He felt that Martina in his arms had become increasingly thin after the hardships she had gone through during this period. Her hard-earned weight seemed to have returned to its previous state. Her delicate waist fit perfectly in his grasp, shattering his heart into
