Chapter 65: Did He Know All Along That She Was Pretending to Be Asleep?(Update for kind-hearted girls)
From the writer: Thanks for the gift of hot air balloon from User5297970402. This chapter is updated for her
The butler’s words were resolute and unmistakable, even a blind person could hear it. The butler must have reached some kind of understanding with Elizabeth, as they were both considering each other’s feelings in such a manner.
The butler said, “It was Miss Martinez who deliberately challenged Mrs. Elizabeth Walker before, and Mrs. Elizabeth Walker has always been tolerant. Now, with your words,
won’t it deeply hurt her heart?”
“I can guarantee that Mrs. Elizabeth Walker has never done anything to harm Miss
Martinez. If you don’t believe it, feel free to investigate.”
“However, you shouldn’t have said such words in front of Mrs. Elizabeth Walker. It only
creates a rift between the two of you. Please refrain from saying such things in the future.”
Benjamin didn’t pay any attention to these words and casually dropped another indifferent remark. “I hope so. As I said, nobody should bother her during this time.”
His gaze swept around, and even the servants in the vicinity couldn’t help but tremble.
afraid to utter a word.
“Otherwise, if Martina leaves again, I won’t spare anyone involved.” After saying that, Benjamin carried Martina upstairs, back to their private room.
Elizabeth watched her son’s departing figure, a sense of being overlooked and neglected washed over her. Despite being the one who should have received care and attention, her son seemed oblivious to her presence.
All of this was because of Martina. It was clear that she shouldn’t even exist!
Inside the bedroom, Benjamin gently placed Martina on the large bed and carefully tucked her in, with a tenderness that resembled caring for a newborn baby.
However, instead of leaving after doing all this, he stayed in place and stared at
Martina for a long time.
Martina had no idea what Benjamin was thinking, but she felt her emotions becoming more suppressed, to the point where she almost couldn’t carry on.
Yes, in fact, from the moment Martina heard Elizabeth speaking in the villa, she already knew where she had ended up.
She had also awakened by then, but the situation at that time was just too awkward. She didn’t know how to engage in a conversation with them, so she simply pretended to still
However, she couldn’t be certain whether Benjamin knew that she had already
With Benjamin constantly by her side, she had no choice but to continue her pretense.
Just when Martina was on the verge of surrendering and revealing her true state,
Benjamin finally made a move.
She heard the sound of Benjamin seemingly taking off his clothes, then heading
towards the direction of the bathroom.
During this period, Benjamin had been tirelessly searching for Martina and hadn’t rested
properly at all.
He didn’t even have the mindset to tidy himself up properly. Now that he had finally returned home and brought Martina back, he naturally wanted to relax.
Martina’s hands under the covers unconsciously clenched together. She waited for quite a while and, after confirming that there was no movement, finally opened her eyes slowly. What she saw was a very familiar place. She had slept on this bed for six years, and even if she wanted to pretend not to recognize it, it would be difficult.
Martina gradually sat up and indeed heard the sound of someone showering coming
from the bathroom.
At this moment, Martina felt her mind in turmoil.
Benjamin was actually able to say such things to his own mother. Was he intentionally pretending in front of her, or did he genuinely have a change of heart?
Considering Benjamin’s character, it was unlikely for him to engage in deliberate
pretense, suggesting that his words were likely sincere and heartfelt.
Presently, Martina didn’t quite understand, no matter how hard she racked her brains,
she couldn’t make sense of it.
Why did Benjamin suddenly react like that? He had never cared about her feelings before, nor had he ever cared about who would bully her.
Furthermore, Elizabeth was Benjamin’s mother, which made it impossible that he had changed. No matter what, Benjamin would always unhesitatingly choose to stand by
If it had been before, Martina would have fallen asleep faster on that big bed than on any other. However, lying on the bed now, Martina tossed and turned for a long time without being able to fall asleep. Instead, she became more and more awake.
She had been brought back against her will, and even if she wanted to leave again, it probably wouldn’t be so easy because Benjamin wouldn’t give her such an opportunity

Benjamin had also taken away her phone, and given Benjamin’s personality, it’s unlikely
that he would easily return it to her.
But continuing like this was not a solution either. If Martina still wanted to find another opportunity for herself, she had to keep pretending.
Just the thought of having to continue pretending to adore and deeply love Benjamin as before made Martina feel extremely uncomfortable.
She couldn’t bear to live like this for another day. If there was even a slight possibility,
she wanted to leave as soon as possible!
After a while, Martina heard the sound of the bathroom door opening. It should be
Benjamin finished with his shower.
She quickly readjusted herself on the bed, so as not to be discovered by Benjamin that
she was pretending.
Martina squinted her eyes slightly and saw Benjamin casually wiping his hair before lying directly beside her.
Fortunately, her acting seemed convincing enough and hadn’t aroused Benjamin’s
Before she could react, Benjamin once again pulled her into his embrace, holding her
It was as if he was afraid that if he let go, she might disappear.
To be honest, Martina couldn’t believe that this was the action of Benjamin.
He was someone who had never cared about others’ feelings, but now he seemed.
Martina’s mind was filled with various thoughts and she didn’t notice how excessive
their current actions were.
In the next instant, a faint sound reached Martina’s ears, descending from above her head, “No matter what, I will never let you leave me again. You better give up on that idea.”
Martina’s heart skipped a beat, and if someone didn’t know any better, they would think. that Benjamin had discovered her pretense of fake sleeping. Otherwise, why would he suddenly say such a thing?
However, apart from that, Benjamin didn’t say anything else.
Martina speculated that she might have been overthinking, and she shouldn’t let
Benjamin easily coax words out of her.
But the silence didn’t last long as a knocking sound came from outside the door. “Boss, breakfast is ready. Would you like to have some more?”
Martina’s body tensed up once again, not intentionally but subconsciously.
I’m glad you enjoy my literary works, but recently I tested positive for COVID. The invasion of the virus prevents me from consistently maintaining my creativity.
Recently, I have adopted many homeless stray cats, but they have placed too much
financial burden on me. If you like my works, can you give them some rewards? I hope this.
