Chapter 59: Even If It Means Death, You Won’t Let Go?
However, previously she had only mentioned her desire to go to Carlsbad in front of Benjamin. When did she ever mention wanting to go to Korea?
Suddenly, Martina seemed to have realized something, and her expression instantly
With an unwavering voice, as if holding some kind of evidence, she said, “Did you read
Apart from that, Martina couldn’t understand how Benjamin could have gained a better
understanding of her.
During her bad moods in the past, she liked to write in her diary, so it contained many
of her inner thoughts.
It included her efforts over the years, the unequal gains she had obtained, and even
some of her small wishes.
For example, she wanted to go to the theme park with Benjamin, she wanted to go to Carlsbad and have Benjamin by her side.
She also wanted to go to Korea and see what made it different from other countries. She wanted to experience the culture there.
However, none of these things were ultimately realized, as she had already made up her
mind to leave.
When she was leaving, she had originally planned to take the diary with her, but no matter how she searched, she couldn’t find it.
In the end, Martina gradually forgot about it, thinking that if she couldn’t find it, Benjamin definitely wouldn’t be able to find it either.
Who would have thought that something she had almost forgotten about would be brought up by Benjamin himself? It truly surprised Martina.
If this had happened a month ago, Martina would have been deeply moved by Benjamin
bringing up these things on his own, but unfortunately, it was too late.
Martina’s inner world remained unaffected, and she even felt a bit impatient.
“I don’t think it’s necessary. You’re a busy boss, and there’s no need to waste any time. -on-me. Just focus on your own work,” Martina said, showing her reluctance.
However, it seems that Benjamin didn’t quite grasp Martina’s rejection. He asked, “What? Weren’t these the places you wanted to go before?”
Martina originally wanted to keep quiet, but Benjamin persisted with an unyielding attitude. So she could only speak up again, “Yes, I did want to go to those places before as you mentioned, but that was in the past. I don’t want to go anymore.”
Benjamin was speechless and lost in thought, “Is Martina deliberately going against me,
which is why she’s saying this?”
Actually, it was probably the first time Benjamin had been so straightforwardly and decisively rejected by Martina, even before she fell into a coma.
Benjamin could also assume that Martina’s reactive responses had been due to her physical discomfort at the time.
But back then, in her clear state of mind, it had definitely been the first time.
Benjamin’s eyebrows furrowed once again, unable to contain his frustration, but he maintained his composure and ask, “Then where do you want to go now?”
Martina’s gaze out the window resembled a tranquil lake, devoid of any ripples. Without even a hint of contemplation, she spoke, almost thoughtlessly, “I just want to find a place where I can live without any disturbance from you or the people around you.”
To put it simply, as long as Benjamin and those connected to him were absent, Martina would have found happiness regardless of the location.
However, for Benjamin, those words had undeniably caused pain.
The atmosphere seemed to freeze instantly, and the cold tension engulfed them once again. If a strand of hair were to fall to the ground at this moment, it would have likely made an audible sound.
Benjamin rose to his feet, placing his hands on either side of Martina, enveloping her in
His unwavering gaze remained fixed on Martina’s face as he did not want to miss any
It was as if he could see through her as he asked, “Do you think that if you keep acting like this, I will eventually grow tired and let you go?”
Indeed, Martina held that perspective. Having realized the limitations of her assertive approach, she opted for a gentler one, convinced that as long as the desired outcome was attained, it would be considered a triumph.
Who would have thought that Benjamin would see through her so quickly? Upon careful consideration, it’s understandable.
With Benjamin’s sharp intellect, it was not a difficult task for him to figure it out. Martina calmly asked, without any trace of panic, “Yes, so… when will you let me go?”
Someone like Benjamin, with his personality, would not tolerate being provoked and disobeyed repeatedly by others in this manner.
Martina could sense that Benjamin’s patience had reached its limit, and he was on the verge of exploding.
Unfortunately, Benjamin’s keen perception didn’t fail to grasp Martina’s inner thoughts.
He always managed to see through people’s minds with his deep and penetrating gaze, and
Martina was no exception.
“Martina,” he asked slowly, “do you believe that this will be the last time you can be away from my side for such a long time?”
Martina didn’t respond anything.
Of course, she believed it. As long as it was a promise made by Benjamin, there was no doubt that he would fulfill it, as he possessed the necessary capabilities.
Martina could even sense that Benjamin was in a state where he would never let go,
even in death.
However, Martina couldn’t comprehend what it was about herself that was worth Benjamin’s efforts to keep.
Was it really a good idea to use such means to keep her by his side? And what could it possibly bring to him?
Neither of them spoke again, plunging the hospital room into a dreadful silence.
After what felt like an eternity, Martina broke the silence by speaking up, “Even if it means death, you won’t let go?”
Benjamin’s brow furrowed intensely, as if he could sense the madness in Martina’s
Then, without saying another word, he swiftly walked to the door of the hospital room. Suddenly, as if he remembered something, he glanced back at Martina with a profound look. “You best give up on this idea as soon as possible. Don’t forget that you are not
At first, Martina didn’t understand the meaning behind his words. It wasn’t until a while later, when there was no one else in the hospital room, that Martina finally grasped the implication.
So, was Benjamin indirectly threatening her again? What was the meaning by “you are
Martina racked her brain, pondering intensely, and suddenly a bold speculation formed
in her mind.
Could it be that Benjamin was planning to harm her father? He really dared to do anything.
There had never been anything Benjamin wanted to do but didn’t dare to. Even the most outrageous things, Benjamin could always manipulate and control with ease:
Unfortunately, this time, Martina became an unexpected factor. Benjamin had thought that their lives together had long been accustomed to each other, and there wouldn’t
changes between them.
However, the final outcome was always disappointing. It turned out that many things.
