Chapter 64: Did It Hurt Her Heart?
Unfortunately, it wasn’t the time to discuss these matters. No matter how well they understood the situation, they still had to deal with the current issues.
As of now, Martina had already returned, and the most important thing for them to do was to find a way to quickly get rid of that woman.
Otherwise, even ordinary people could see how crucial Martina had become to
If they allowed Martina to stay, once she whispered something in Benjamin’s ear, the
consequences would be severe.
Elizabeth would never allow such a thing to happen, nor would she allow anyone to
sow discord between her and her son.
If that were to occur, she would do everything possible to make Martina disappear, not just temporarily but permanently.
Elizabeth stood up and casually put on a coat, absentmindedly waving her hand to signal the butler.
As she watched the car slowly entering the courtyard from the window, she had already
made up her mind.
“Alright, now that that woman has returned, we still need to be polite,” she said. “Let’s take it one step at a time. Even if my son spoils her, he can’t stay at home all the time. There will come a time to deal with her.”
Just like before, as long as her son was not around, Elizabeth could manipulate Martina into doing anything. If Martina resisted, she could take this opportunity to completely get rid
But it wasn’t the right time yet. Despite Elizabeth’s impatience, she had to suppress
these thoughts for now.
As soon as Benjamin arrived at the entrance of the villa with Martina, he saw his
mother waiting there.
Elizabeth’s expression was filled with concern, and upon closer inspection, it seemed like tears were welling up in her eyes, as if she could burst into tears at any moment.
“Son, you finally came back. What have you been busy with this past month? I called you so many times, but you didn’t answer,” she said. “I hope nothing has happened. Don’t scare your mother. If something happens to you, what would I do?”
While Elizabeth’s words sounded caring, in reality, she didn’t have such thoughts at all. She deliberately pretended to be completely unaware, even though she had known early on that Martina had been brought back.
What surprised Elizabeth was that not only was Martina brought back, but she was also. carefully carried back by her own son.
Just how much importance did Benjamin attach to Martina to make such a gesture? Even Elizabeth had never been carried by her son.
What Elizabeth didn’t know was that Benjamin had indeed seen the calls she made, but he pretended not to notice.
Because he now understood that there was a certain connection between his mother
and Martina regarding the reason why Martina had resolutely left.
Actually, it could be considered a form of displaced anger. Because Benjamin couldn’t
find Martina all this time, he ended up directing his anger towards his own mother,
Of course, he couldn’t express these thoughts explicitly, so Elizabeth had no idea what
else was hidden in his heart.
Benjamin glanced at her with a faint expression, then frowned discontentedly. “Lower
your voice, she’s still sleeping.”
Elizabeth froze in place. It seemed like Martina was receiving even better treatment
Martina had already run away in front of his face, so why was his own son not only not. ‘realizing the situation, but also being even nicer to Martina?
Who knew what shameful things she had been doing behind the scenes? Could Benjamin really remain indifferent and act as if nothing had happened?
Elizabeth, of course, couldn’t understand. She had never regarded Martina as part of the family and didn’t care about her well-being.
She even wished for something bad to happen to Martina, so when she saw her son in this situation, she truly couldn’t comprehend it no matter how hard she tried.
Unfortunately, she didn’t dare express these thoughts directly. At most, she felt extremely dissatisfied in her own heart.
“Well, well, isn’t this Martina? Son, how did you bring her back?” Elizabeth deliberately asked. “I remember very well that she previously spoke so confidently, saying she would never come back and even compared our home to a prison. She spewed out those offensive and disgusting words one after another, completely disregarding our family!”
Elizabeth rubbed her head, pretending to be completely unaware, but in reality, she understood everything while pretending to be clueless.
She continued, “I don’t understand her mindset. She had a comfortable life, but she deliberately chose to ruin everything and now she’s returned.”
“Remember, son, news of her departure has already circulated throughout the entire city. Now that you’ve brought her back, how do you expect others to interpret it?”
Elizabeth was on the verge of losing control of her emotions due to her inner jealousy
and dissatisfaction. Even her words revealed an unusual level of directness.
Benjamin didn’t turn a deaf ear to her words. If the woman in front of him wasn’t his own mother, he would have taken immediate action.
But she was his mother, who gave birth to him and raised him. There were certain
things that couldn’t be handled too harshly.
“What others think of me is none of my business. There are some things that I might
need to clarify in advance,” Benjamin said, recalling Martina’s previous grievances and the complaints expressed by her best friend in front of him.
If it weren’t true, Martina and Elena would never deliberately speak nonsense in front of
Because of this, Benjamin couldn’t pretend that nothing had happened. Even if the person in front of him was his mother, there were still things that needed to be clarified.
Elizabeth was once again stunned in place, seemingly unaware of what Benjamin was
about to do.
“Son, what do you want to say? If you have something to say, just say it. You don’t. need to beat around the bush with your mother. We are the closest people in this world.”
she said with a forced smile on her face.
Just when Elizabeth thought that Benjamin was going to say something comforting, the
result turned out to be the opposite.
“From now on, stay away from her unless necessary,” Benjamin said grimly. “Her temper has been bad lately, and I don’t want anyone to upset her. Otherwise, I won’t easily forgive anyone, no matter who they are.”
Elizabeth couldn’t help but feel terrified and couldn’t imagine that these words were
coming from her own son.
She had never received such treatment herself. What right did Martina have, after all? Was it just because of her pretty face or her shamelessness?
Even the butler seemed unable to bear it any longer, and he said, “Mr. Benjamin Walker, she has been worried about you during this time. How could you say such hurtful words to her right after returning?”
