Chapter 61: How Can A Murderer Compare to Him?
No matter if Martina was willing or not, things had already turned out like this. She had no way to leave anymore because as long as Benjamin was in this place, she couldn’t easily
Simon seemed to be a little unable to bear Martina’s attitude towards his boss. After reporting the news, he deliberately said something to Martina, “Miss Martinez, put yourself in the boss’s shoes. This time, he really spent a lot of time to find you, with less than two
hours of sleep each day.”
“You should know, how can an ordinary person endure like this? But the boss has
“Because the boss wants to find you as quickly as possible, isn’t all of this enough to
“Not only that, but when the boss saw you suddenly faint, he immediately took you to the hospital at the fastest speed and held you personally without letting go.”
“All of us witnessed it. The boss treats you so well, why do you still have such an attitude towards him? Do you have a heart?”
Simon really couldn’t stand it anymore, seeing his boss in such a heartbroken state. Clearly, the boss should be the one who stood tall and mighty, but why… did he end up
Miss Martinez was doing fine before, so why was she showing such determination now? To be honest, outsiders like them couldn’t understand!
Benjamin’s eyes flickered, then he gave Simon a displeased look and said, “Shut up.” He never liked deliberately saying things in front of others about what he had done. If he did something, he did it, there was no need to make the other person deliberately aware
Initially, it was fine that Simon didn’t say such things. Martina even ate a lot and felt a sense of existence in her empty stomach.
However, now upon hearing these words, Martina suddenly lost her appetite. She event felt a sour taste in her mouth.
Her bowl was set aside as she fixed her gaze on Simon.
Similar to the former butlers, they always assumed a superior attitude and judged her. But why was that? It was evident that she too had her own thoughts and ideas. Why should she allow others to limit her?
Martina smirked, her lips curling. “Simon, why are you talking to me like this? In other words, why do you think you can talk to me with such an attitude?”
Simon was momentarily stunned, probably not expecting Martina to say something like
“To put it bluntly, why have none of you ever paid attention to the real reasons behind all of this?” Martina remained unaffected and said. “If it weren’t for Benjamin intentionally forcing me to go back, why would I have run away?”
“If it weren’t for him leaving me with nowhere to go, how could I have ended up in such. a miserable state? How could I have felt uncomfortable on the ship?”
“Even less likely would I have spent so much time in a pitch-black cellar. It’s all thanks
‘Now he’s just holding onto me and bringing me to the hospital, so I don’t die there. Why am I supposed to be grateful and tearful? What kind of reasoning is that?”
Martina was right because she had been suppressed for far too long before, and now she didn’t want to endure the same kind of grievances she had experienced before.
But it seemed like these people had become accustomed to Martina’s past selfless efforts, to the point that when she no longer wanted to give, they all came to criticize her
as if she had done something wrong!
If Martina were to truly speak about it, her only and biggest mistake would be falling in love with Benjamin without hesitation.
If it weren’t for what happened back then, it wouldn’t have resulted in all the painful things in the following years, and she wouldn’t have been enduring all these years, swallowing her pride.
Simon was completely bewildered. He never expected Martina to resist like this, and what’s more, she presented her arguments logically.
“Miss Martinez, you can’t say things like that, Simon explained. “The reason the boss has been trying to find you is because he’s concerned about your well-being. He’s doing it
for your own good!”
The smile on Martina’s face completely vanished. “Can one sentence of ‘he’s doing it for your own good’ erase all the harm that has been done?” she asked.
“If he really cares about me, why won’t he let me go when I’ve already said I want to break up?”
“If he really cares about me, why wasn’t he there for me when I went through so much.
“If he really cares about me, why couldn’t he fulfill the simplest request of mine to
“Simon, stop trying to morally manipulate me. I’m not that foolish!”
“Besides, a murderer will never admit to being a murderer. Isn’t that a universally
Martina firmly closed the discussion, as she no longer wanted to hold onto any hope for herself. Every time she had hope, it only led to greater despair.
Simon opened his mouth but couldn’t utter a word in response to her rebuttal. However, his perspective was different from what Martina had just said.
He could only thought to himself, “The boss has been treating Miss Martinez well, caring so much about her, yet why does she always fail to appreciate it? Comparing him to a murderer, can they even be compared? A murderer is a murderer, but the boss is not. Everything he does is out of concern for Miss Martinez!”
“Miss Martinez…” Simon only called Martina’s name, but failed to say any other things.
At this moment, Benjamin also heard Martina’s inner thoughts.
So, was this Martina’s true feelings?
In her eyes, everything Benjamin had done had become so detestable, even
burdensome to her.
A murderer? Perhaps in her heart, he was even more unbearable than a murderer
Despite his previous speculations, Benjamin found it difficult to accept the reality unfolding before his eyes. He was forced to acknowledge the truth, even if he was reluct
to do so.
Martina, who used to cling to him and was unwilling to part, had truly disappeared. Even at this point, he couldn’t bring himself to do anything to Martina.
So, in the end, he could only vent his anger on Simon.
Benjamin put his hands in his pockets, clenched his fists tightly, and his aura once
again fell apart.
“Simon, you talk too much,” he said grimly. “Go out and receive your punishment. Don’t even think about the bonus for these three months.”
Simon closed his mouth silently, realizing that he had indeed said too much. Had he not been thoughtful towards his boss, he wouldn’t have said those words.
Little did he know that his words not only failed to improve their relationship, but it also
It was like shooting himself in the foot. No wonder the boss was so angry to penalize him with a three-month bonus deduction.
