Chapter 68: Mr. Benjamin Walker Should Consider the Overall
In the end, even though Elizabeth hadn’t eaten enough, she deliberately pretended to be
full and got up early.
But before she got up, she didn’t forget to ask specifically, “Son, are you going to be
busy with work later?”
Seemingly worried that Benjamin would suspect her motives, she deliberately changed. her tone, pretending to be genuinely concerned and appearing casual. “Well, I heard that you’ve been looking for Martina all this time, unable to focus on work. Now that she is back, shouldn’t you quickly handle the company issues?”
“Yesterday, your assistant in the company called several times. We almost alarmed your grandfather. You need to prioritize properly. If you let him down, it won’t be good for us.”
“Indeed, Mr. Benjamin Walker, if this matter disturbs Mr. Jack Walker, it may not be beneficial for his recovery,” The butler also added. “Maybe you should consider the overall situation. Now that Miss Martinez has returned, there’s no need for you to worry anymore.”
Benjamin didn’t pay any attention to what they were saying. With his intelligence, how could he not see that they were deliberately discussing these matters?
However, considering that Martina had indeed been brought back, Benjamin didn’t delve too deeply into what had happened before.
As long as Martina was here, nothing else really mattered. Benjamin casually took a few sips of coffee. Maybe it was because Martina had returned, he felt like he could eat a
If it weren’t for the presence of his own mother at the table, perhaps he could have
eaten even more.
“Yeah, I’ll go to the company later,” he replied.
After receiving Benjamin’s precise answer, Elizabeth finally let out a deep sigh of relief. She felt that the burning ember in her heart could be unleashed later, and she finally felt a sense of relief in her mind.
“Good. I’m sure the company has been facing many troubles lately. Son, you should pay -more attention to serious matters,” Elizabeth intentionally added. “As for personal
relationships, we can discuss them later. There’s no rush for now.”
“Alright, since you’ve made up your mind, I won’t delay you any longer. Eat your meal quickly so you can leave early,” she said, emphasizing the importance of finishing the meal.
Martina remained silent throughout, as if she were merely an onlooker. She quietly ate
a lot of food, feeling like her stomach was almost full, prompting her to stop.
Benjamin poured a cup of warm water for Martina, specifically pouring it into the
Surprisingly,, he spoke a lot, “If you’re bored later, you can wander around the house. If you want to go somewhere, just tell Leslie, and he’ll take you there.”
“But there’s no need for you to go out. If you’re bored, you can go upstairs and take a
nap. Take this cup of water with you, so you won’t have to bother with pouring yourself a
drink when you get thirsty.”
Leslie had gone to take care of some personal matters and had just returned to the
villa, only to see their boss coddling Martina like a child.
He took care of Martina, completely abandoning his bossy demeanor. This was
definitely an unprecedented scene, and only Martina could receive such treatment.
The key point was that the boss even spoke so much at once, leaving Leslie to
question if he was seeing the right person.
He exchanged glances with Simon, and if they had only suspected before whether their
boss had fallen love with Martina, now they could be completely certain.
After all, If this didn’t count as love, then what did? The boss’s actions were more than
just love, they were like a miraculous phenomenon!
Leslie suppressed the astonishment in his heart and positioned himself on the “sidelines, trying to minimize his presence. He was afraid that if he accidentally said
something wrong, it would have unintended consequences.
After finishing the meal, Benjamin tidied up, changed his clothes, and left the villa. Before leaving, he deliberately planted a gentle and affectionate kiss on Martina’s
However, he seemed completely unconcerned about whether Martina was willing or not, instead, he habitually wanted to perform those actions as he did before.
Despite Martina’s internal resistance, she didn’t refuse. After all, it was just a kiss, and they had kissed before, so why make a fuss about it?
After Benjamin left, only Martina and Elizabeth were left at home. As for the others, although they were present, they didn’t dare to do anything and simply stuck to their own.
Martina didn’t choose to go out because she knew that even if she did, she wouldn’t have a chance to escape. Instead of wasting time, she decided to go to her room and sleep
for a while.
So when Leslie asked if there was anywhere she wanted to go, Martina-immediately declined, “I’m not in the mood. I’ll go upstairs and sleep some more.”
Leslie nodded along but wondered in his mind, “Why does it feel like Miss Martinez is so calm after coming back? Wasn’t she reluctant to return?”
Leslie didn’t know what he was thinking, but his expression suddenly underwent a
Could it be that Miss Martinez was intentionally deceiving people with her calm.
demeanor? The calm before the storm was the most unsettling, could Miss Martinez be the
With no one else capable of answering these questions, Leslie found himself confined
to his position, carrying out his responsibilities diligently.
As soon as Martina went upstairs, Elizabeth also walked out of the dining room. When she saw that Martina was no longer in the living room, a sense of displeasure reflected in
her eyes, revealing her true emotions.
Martina had been becoming more and more unruly. Since she had returned, she should
have taken the opportunity to learn the new rules.
Didn’t she know what she should and shouldn’t do? Did she still want to continue
causing trouble for no reason?
The butler sensed Elizabeth’s dissatisfaction and reminded her, “Should I send someo
“Even though Miss Martinez seems different now from before, she is still Miss Martinez. It’s easy to handle her,” the butler said with a clear bias, revealing his prejudiced
perspective on Martina. If he truly understood the current Martina, he wouldn’t be able to
speak such callous words.
Elizabeth pressed her temples, feeling that this matter might not be so simple. Martina seemed to have transformed completely and didn’t seem like she was just causing trouble
Moreover, this woman had some tricks up her sleeve. She dared to go missing for such a long time, and she’s no longer the same person she used to be.
