Chapter 75: Why Not Make Him Marry You?
Well, Elena finally understood why Benjamin had suddenly come back and even brought back all his people. It was because he had actually brought Martina back. Even though shel didn’t want to admit it, she couldn’t deny this fact.
Elena had a somewhat frustrated look, but at least the suspense that had been hanging. over her heart was finally resolved.
“After searching for so long, how did you still end up being brought back?” she asked.
Martina didn’t reply her. It was really a case of bringing up a sore subject. Did she really
want this to happen?
Elena probably knew how Martina would respond and said, “Forget it, asking these questions is pointless. With Benjamin’s abilities, it’s just a matter of minutes for him to find. you and bring you back. So, what are you going to do now? Can you still go out?”
“I’m afraid I can’t go out,” Martina said. “Benjamin had someone named Leslie
constantly following me. Even if I go out, I have to have him accompany me.”
As expected, the situation could only get more worse. This was simply unbelievable
Thinking about it, it’s understandable. With Benjamin’s obsessive personality, there nothing he wouldn’t do once he’s provoked.
Elena could almost imagine how deeply distressed Martina must be feeling right no She felt sorry for Martina. “You were so close to freedom, and who would have thoug it would end in failure. But it’s okay. No matter what, you still have me. If you really can’t
leave the villa, I’ll come to you.”
At least the bond between the two friends was genuine, and that was something that no one could refute. It was the only solace in Martina’s heart.
“No need,” Martina said. “Take care of yourself during this time. The situation here is a bit complicated, and I don’t want to involve you further.”
“I’ll find a way to make Benjamin quickly grow tired of me and personally throw me out
It took Martina two days to figure out one thing: What should she do next? Since Benjamin was unwilling to let her go easily, she would force him to let go.
Besides, Elizabeth had never liked her. As long as she acted more mischievous, there would come a day when everyone couldn’t stand it anymore.
However, Elena didn’t think it was that easy. Based on Benjamin’s behaviors at the time, he seemed like he might have developed deeper feelings for Martina, though it wasn’t apparent on his face. But what if Benjamin was a hidden romantic?
Elena hesitated slightly and asked, “Martina, I didn’t want to discourage you, but are your sure Benjamin will let go so easily?”
“Since he went through so much trouble and brought so many people to chase after
you, I think Benjamin somewhat love you. Maybe you two should get married.”
This was a suggestion that Elena came up with after thinking for a long time because
there didn’t seem to be any better options. “You make Benjamin marry you, and I’ll give your a wedding gift. How about that?”
Martina firmly shook her head and her eyes were resolute. “No, it’s impossible. Even if my situation is not good, I don’t want to repeat the same mistakes. You know what Benjamin is like.”
“Even if he seems to be pretending to love me now, it’s still just an illusion.” Martinal licked her dry lips. “When he gets tired of me, he’ll treat me the same way as before, coming and going as he pleases. I don’t want to live like that again. I want to have my own life. If I don’t even have the basic freedom, then my whole life would be in vain.”
It was something for others, but for Martina, it seemed like an insurmountable
Elena suddenly didn’t know what to say. She was an outsider who didn’t quite
understand this kind of situation.
Elena knew that Martina must be feeling extremely stifled right now, so she suggested again, “How about you come out with me for a stroll? Even if someone follows us, it doesn’t matter. We haven’t seen each other for such a long time.”
“I’ve been worried sick about you during this time, and now that you’re back, we can’t just ignore your best friend, right?”
Martina thought about it and agreed. Instead of staying here and breathing the same air as Benjamin, it would be better to go out, even if someone followed them.
So Martina quickly made a decision. “Alright, let’s meet at our usual spot.”
After hanging up the phone, Martina randomly grabbed a casual sportswear set from
the wardrobe and put it on.
This sportswear set was a couple’s outfit that Martina had specially bought before. However, Benjamin’s clothes had always been collecting dust in the wardrobe, as if he had
never worn them.
The only time he wore it was when she insisted after she bought it, but he never wore
Thinking about those unpleasant past experiences, Martina shook her head. “Forget it, those things are all in the past. Why should I dwell on them?”
As Martina stepped out, she indeed saw Leslie and Simon standing there, talking. Upon hearing the movement, they all turned to look at Martina, their actions synchronized.
“Miss Martinez, are you planning to go out?” Leslie asked.
Martina had already changed into a different outfit. Her long, glossy hair was casually tied up in a high ponytail, giving her a refined and carefree look.
Dressed like this, it was unlikely that she was just going out to do laundry.
Martina nodded without hiding her intentions. “Yeah, I want to go shopping. Didn’t your boss say that if I wanted to go out, it would be okay?”
The two of them exchanged glances again, seemingly considering this matter. Eventually, Simon took the initiative and said, “Please wait here for a moment, Miss. Martinez. I’ll go and ask the boss. He’s in the study.”
Martina crossed her arms and leaned against the railing of the corridor. “Okay, please
hurry. I’m in a bit of a hurry.”
Simon went to the study, but it only took about two minutes before he came back. “The
boss said you can go out, but Leslie must accompany you.”
Martina agreed without hesitation, “No problem.” She then took the lead in heading
Leslie didn’t say anything. It seemed like he was the one silently bearing everything. However, there was nothing he could do. After all, it was the boss’s order.
Even if Leslie’s heart was unwilling and reluctant, he could only follow Martina and
Leslie drove the car and took Martina to the destination she mentioned.
They didn’t expect that less than a minute after they left, Simon also started his car
and tailed them closely.
Simon assumed the role of the driver, accompanied by another man seated in the back
of the car.
