Chapter 7 Mr. Benjamin Walker is back, you should go back, too
In those years, Benjamin would always get angry because a group of stubborn old men in the company deliberately made things difficult for him.
He had his own plans and strategies, but the members of the ancient board of
directors didn’t recognize them at all.
Every time Benjamin proposed a new strategy or business structure, the board of
directors would deliberately choose not to approve it.
At that time, Benjamin would often argue with others in just a few words, and many
good plans couldn’t be carried out.
At that time, Martina had just moved into the Walker family and was much softer in
character than she was now. When Benjamin was angry, no one in the Walker family dared
to approach him, including his mother.
Only Martina dared to go.
Because at that time, Jack Walker had said that Martina and Benjamin were husband and wife, and they were going to spend the rest of their lives together.
No matter what Benjamin would do, Martina couldn’t despise him, let alone abandon
him. At the same time, no matter what happened, Martina couldn’t condone Benjamin to make a decision that would make her regret.
At that time, Martina really believed in these words and, somehow, found the courage.
to knock on Benjamin’s tightly closed door.
Since then, Benjamin had never lost his temper at work or in public gatherings.
Because no matter what happened outside, Benjamin knew that Martina would be there for
Martina didn’t have much knowledge of the world when she first learned these things,
most of which were taught to her by Jack Walker.
As the two of them grew to understand each other better, Martina gradually figured out Benjamin’s temperament and was always able to calm him down when he needed it the
Later, as Benjamin’s power grew stronger, fewer and fewer people dared to defy him, and he no longer had angry outbursts.
Slowly, it seemed like everyone had forgotten Martina’s role.
They seemed to have forgotten how Martina had used her barely proficient French to find and help Benjamin when he was being harassed during negotiations abroad.
They had also forgotten that it was Martina who had convinced Benjamin to try one more time during the countless times when he couldn’t reach an agreement with the Berlin
delegation, and ultimately succeeded.
It was already 10 pm at night when Martina left the subway station,.
At this time, there weren’t many people in the residential complex.
However, many households had their lights on, making the roads in the complex. particularly bright.
Martina walked with her head down and suddenly someone called out to her, “Miss
Usually, only people from the Walker family would address her this way, and when she turned around, she saw someone she never expected to see – Simon Lee.
Simon’s attitude was different from that of the butler. Particularly polite he said, “Benjamin Walker has already returned.”
Martina didn’t say anything, but her heart was in turmoil.
It had been almost a month since they had last spoken on the phone.
Martina never expected that Benjamin would come back at this time, especially since
he had said that he wouldn’t be back for another two or three months.
Yet, he had returned in less than a month.
Although Martina didn’t say anything, her eyes expressed her thoughts very clearly. Benjamin had come back, so what did that have to do with her?
Seeing that Martina didn’t move, Simon took a step forward and said politely, “Mr. Benjamin Walker is back, you should go back, too.”
Martina understood. Because Benjamin had returned, her runaway incident should come to an end.
She must go back home like nothing happened and return to her position as Benjamin’s fiancée. She must continue to focus on him wholeheartedly, no matter what grievances she had before.
Benjamin did not learn about Martina’s leaving in a timely manner.
It was not until recently that Adam inadvertently mentioned it to him, as if taking credit for it.
At that time, he said that Martina was making trouble at home and not staying put. Benjamin’s response was “let her be.”
Then, Benjamin made a phone call to inquire about the situation.
The butler embellished how Martina talked back to Benjamin’s mother, and how she insulted Miss Paloma from the Paloma family, which made her fall ill and bedridden.
Benjamin had no other reaction than saying “Bring her back.”
After that, the butler came to find Martina, but was scolded and sent back.
Martina remained silent with a straight face, standing under the streetlight.
Even Simon didn’t know what Martina was up to.
The next second, Martina spoke up, “I just finished working overtime —”
Simon immediately responded, “I’ll tell Mr. Benjamin Walker to increase your allowance
when we get back.”
Martina stared at Simon, with a somewhat complicated expression. She only meant to
say that she was tired from working overtime today.
But Simon interrupted her and understood her words as indirectly asking for
Martina smiled, feeling a bit pathetic for herself.
What was the point of getting angry at an assistant?
“Well, I’m really tired from working overtime today, so I won’t be going to Mr. Benjamin Walker’s villa with you,” Martina said.
She intentionally said she wouldn’t be going to Mr. Benjamin Walker’s villa, not that she would be going home. The meaning was clear.
But Simon thought Martina was getting angry.
He had seen with his own eyes how deeply this stunning beauty loved the boss. No matter when or where, whenever the boss returned, Martina would appear first thing.
Every time, Martina would inquire about the exact day and carefully dress up before appearing before Benjamin.
She liked to tiptoe and tell Benjamin how much she missed him by kissing his chin. However, this kind of childish behavior was not liked or appreciated by anyone around Benjamin.
Because Martina behaved too immaturely and was too straightforward, like a particularly clingy pet.
It gave people the impression that she wasn’t very smart.
Simon handed over the bag in his hand and said, “Miss Martinez, this is a gift that the boss bought specifically for you.”
Martina glanced at it lightly, and her expression did not change much. Her eyes should have twinkled with merriment.
Simon opened the box. Inside was a beautiful set of gemstone necklace, just like the one Elizabeth Taylor had. It was exceptionally pretty, and it suited Martina well, especially under the lighting that made it impossible to look away from its beauty.
Simon smiled as he saw Martina’s reaction, “This was bought by the boss in Germany.” Last week in Germany, numerous collectors had their eyes fixed on this gemstone necklace. Unfortunately, it was eventually sold to a mysterious buyer for 4 million US dollars.
After a week, the necklace was delivered to Martina.
Benjamin’s perception of Martina was similar to a man’s perception of a woman.
It is often said that women love jewelry, so Benjamin thought that she would also like
Martina reached out her hand, and Simon thought she liked it, so he offered it even more eagerly. But Martina didn’t take it. Instead, she closed the box and said, “Forget it, such a precious thing should be left for the person he loves.”
Then, Martina walked away without any hesitation.
