Chapter 73: It’s Important to Be Happy or Not
After bidding farewell to the three ladies, Martina’s face turned cold, and without saying a word, she got up and prepared to go upstairs.
Martina didn’t feel surprised at all about Benjamin’s abilities because in her eyes, there was truly nothing that Benjamin couldn’t do.
As long as Benjamin wanted to do something, he would definitely succeed. Winning a
few rounds of Mahjong was just too simple.
However, Martina was somewhat unhappy. Why did Benjamin always have to intervene
in anything she wanted to do?
Even in trivial matters like playing Mahjong, it seemed she couldn’t make decisions for
When Benjamin saw Martina making a move, he also subconsciously wanted to follow
For some reason, he now genuinely wanted to stick with her, even if it meant being together all the time.
But at that moment, Elizabeth made another move.
She suddenly blocked Benjamin’s way, and the concern in her eyes didn’t seem fake. Perhaps she truly cared about her son, but her concern for Martina must be fake.
“Son, what are you doing? You haven’t finished your work yet. Isn’t it improper to come back in such a hurry?” Elizabeth’s voice sounded a bit anxious. “If someone with ulterior. motives finds out the reason, they might make gossip. You don’t need to worry about the
matters at home.”
“As for Martina, you don’t have to pay attention to her. I can take care of her well. Don’t you trust your own mother?” she continued.
At that moment, Simon also arrived, carrying a stack of files in his hands. There were also some assistants following behind, carrying various things. It seemed that Benjamin
intended to work from home.
Even a fool could see through all of this, let alone someone as perceptive as Elizabeth. Naturally, she could see everything even more clearly.
Could it be that her son had developed feelings for a woman like Martina?
With this thought in mind, Elizabeth truly felt complicated. It was just too
uncomfortable for her.
At this moment, Benjamin didn’t say a word and followed Martina upstairs. As for Simon and the others, they silently moved everything to the study.
It was probably that no one dared to say anything against Martina now because they
knew she was crucial to the boss.
If they angered Martina, they definitely wouldn’t have a good time. Instead, in the days to come, the best thing they should do was to flatter Martina!
As long as Martina was happy, everyone could be happy. If she wasn’t happy, everyone might have to be “buried” together.
Inside the bedroom, Martina sat on the edge of the bed, wearing a cold expression,
simmering with discontent. Well, it wouldn’t exactly be called simmering with discontent, but
she was just feeling particularly upset inside.
As soon as Benjamin pushed open the door, he saw a dark aura surrounding Martina,
as if engulfing her entirely. His heart was filled with even more heartache.
Martina used to be such a lively and vibrant girl, and now she was in this state. Was all
of this truly caused by himself?
Benjamin wanted to change this situation as much as possible, but no matter how
much he thought about it, it seemed there was no better solution.
He could only hope that time would fade everything away, otherwise, he was afraid he
would never be able to forgive himself.
Step by step, Benjamin approached Martina, clearly having the desire to touch her. But due to certain reasons, he stopped just one step away from Martina.
“Unhappy?” Benjamin asked, fully understanding the situation.
Martina didn’t even lift her head and looked out the window. “Does it matter if I’m
happy or not?”
It was just an unnecessary humiliation, and Martina didn’t want to waste her time like
Benjamin pursed his lips, extending his slender fingers to gently touch Martina’s
It seemed like he wanted to smooth out the creases on her tightly knitted brows, but. unfortunately, the effect wasn’t very good.
“It matters a lot,” he said.
Upon hearing these words, Martina couldn’t deny her suspicion. Was she hearing
Benjamin seemed to have noticed something and said again, “Whether you’re happy or
not, it matters a lot to me.”
Perhaps he hadn’t fully understood his own heart before, nor could he comprehend why he was always affected by every action and movement of Martina’s.
Now he understood that he didn’t want Martina to leave him, and he certainly didn’t
want her to disappear from his sight.
Benjamin hoped that Martina could be by his side, just like before, without hesitation, no matter when or where.
He hoped that she could give him a big hug, and even a kiss.
But Benjamin also understood that with Martina’s current state of mind, it was impossible for her to do those things. Some things could only progress gradually.
Martina finally lifted her head slightly, and their eyes met, as if something explosive was happening between them. She said, “Benjamin, if you really want to make me happy, then let me go. I don’t want to stay here for another day.”
Benjamin remained stubborn as ever. This man was never to be doubted. It was already.
quite rare for him to give Martina chances again and again.
“Except for that, everything else is possible,” Benjamin said in a low voice. “I’ve told you, no matter what, don’t even think about leaving my side. It’s not just empty words.”
Martina was speechless.
The words had reached this point, and any effort would probably be in vain.
The glimmer of hope that had barely surfaced in Martina’s eyes instantly plummeted to
“Then I don’t have much to say,” she declared, her words dripping with defiance. “I can
never be happy staying here.”
Benjamin’s eyes were filled with heartache.
The atmosphere fell silent once again, and it was unclear how much time had passed when Benjamin suddenly pulled out a cellphone, as if performing a magic trick, and placed it beside Martina. “If you’re really bored, you can use the phone to chat with your
“This is your phone, I haven’t gone through it,” he added.
Benjamin seemed to be proving a point. He didn’t know Martina’s password, and even if he did, he wouldn’t go snooping around. He was afraid that if he did, he might come across. something he couldn’t accept.
For now, it was already good enough that Martina could stay by his side without
Benjamin didn’t want to hope for anything else. Even if he had other thoughts, he could. only wait for the future to discuss them.
At the very least, he had to wait until he could wholeheartedly coax Martina back. Benjamin couldn’t bear the sight of Martina leaving without saying a word.
During this time, he had done a lot of running around to find Martina, and now he had finally regained her.
