Chapter 76: Can’t Understand How He Thought
The man’s gaze appeared extremely sharp, a single look making everyone feel inferior, even afraid to perform the simplest of actions.
The sunlight shining on him didn’t create a sense of closeness but rather intensified the
Upon closer inspection, he possessed a stunningly handsome appearance and an extraordinary temperament. He was undoubtedly Benjamin.
In his hands, he held a stack of documents, simultaneously checking them while
keeping an eye on the movements of the car in which Martina was located.
Even Simon couldn’t help but feel sorry for their boss. With the boss’s status, when
would they need to treat someone with such deference? Miss Martinez was the exception.
The boss had lowered countless boundaries for her.
Miss Martinez truly didn’t appreciate the fortunate position she was in. Simon
wondered, if the boss were willing to treat him in such a way, and if he happened to be a woman, perhaps he would have long been unable to resist being moved.
Yet Miss Martinez insisted on taking an unconventional path. In this situation, not only
was there no attraction, but she even wanted to distance herself and leave.
What was going on? Could it be that Miss Martinez was just bored and looking for
some excitement? It was truly baffling!
“Boss, should we continue following? It seems like Miss Martinez wants to go shopping,” Simon said.
There was no need to say more as Benjamin could also understand. Without looking back, Benjamin still issued his command, “Continue to follow, not too closely, just make sure you don’t lose track.”
Simon nodded, adjusted the speed to a relatively steady pace, and continued following
Martina’s car all the way.
He proceeded cautiously, maintaining a distance that was neither too close nor too far, in order to prevent the risk of inadvertently losing sight of them.
Actually, Simon didn’t think it was necessary because Miss Martinez still had Leslie by her side, so there shouldn’t have been any problems.
But the boss insisted on doing it that way, against everyone’s advice. If it hadn’t been for the fact that Miss Martinez was truly important to the boss, would it have been necessary to go through all that trouble?
Or perhaps the boss could have simply refused Miss Martinez’s request to go out and made her stay at home, which would have been better for everyone and saved time. But the
boss didn’t do that.
Simon wondered what on earth was going through the boss’s mind that he would agree to Martina’s request. However, the boss was still not at ease and insisted on constantly. following them.
The boss and Miss Martinez clearly had feelings for each other, but it had turned into
the current situation, which became increasingly unbelievable.
Simon himself had never been in a relationship, so he didn’t understand all the
intricacies involved. He just thought that Benjamin was really good to Martina. Therefore, he believed that Martina needed to suppress all her inner dissatisfaction and stay by Benjamin’s side like an obedient pet.
But from beginning to end, no one paid attention to what Martina’s true thoughts were and whether she was truly happy by Benjamin’s side. She simply wanted basic respect, but
even achieving this most basic form of respect seemed so difficult.
Whether it was before or now, no one ever cared about Martina’s feelings. They only cared about what Benjamin thought.
The meeting place Martina and Elena agreed upon was a café next to a large shopping
mall. The coffee had a rich and unique flavor there, which both Martina and Elena have
enjoyed in the past.
However, their contact between each other had become less frequent due to Benjamin’s
involvement, and they gradually stopped coming here as often.
Now that they finally came back to this place, it brought a very different feeling for
As soon as Martina entered the café, she saw Elena waiting at a table by the window. Elena even remembered and had already ordered the drink that Martina liked.
A real smile finally appeared at the corner of Martina’s mouth. This was the first time. since she was brought back that she could truly let go of her pretense and smile sincerely.
Leslie followed behind, neither too close nor too far. If it weren’t for the concern of
being mistaken for a stalker, he would probably stick even closer.
To make himself appear less awkward, Leslie also ordered a cup of coffee for himself. However, he didn’t actually appreciate the taste of this coffee. He found it bitter and the flavor strange. If he weren’t following Martina, he probably wouldn’t have thought of drinking it for the whole year.
Leslie sat in a position where he could clearly observe Martina’s movements. This allowed him to closely monitor her every move without drawing too much attention to
Elena immediately noticed Leslie’s presence and pulled Martina to sit together, expressing her dissatisfaction as she glared at him. “Why is this guy following so closely? Is
he afraid that others won’t know about your existence and mine?”
Martina waved her hand and didn’t even glance in that direction. “He’s just following the rules. Ignore him and pretend he doesn’t exist.”
The root cause of these events was Benjamin. Although Martina was dissatisfied with
the current situation, she wouldn’t vent her anger randomly. There was a reason behind every injustice. If Martina were to release her frustration, she would definitely direct it. towards Benjamin. As for others, they were just caught in the crossfire.
Elena seemed to understand Martina’s intentions. Apart from hugging Martina tenderly,
she didn’t know what else to say at the moment.
Due to someone following them, Elena didn’t dare to speak too explicitly. She had to lower her voice to communicate with Martina. “Benjamin is really something. Why is he
acting so crazy this time?”
Just counting the number of times Martina had run away from home, Elena had lost count. But in the past, Benjamin would never personally search for her. At most, he would make a phone call and ask Martina to come back or send her a gift. The incidents of her running away would always be left unresolved.
But this time, it was as if Benjamin had sensed something in advance. He had been. following Martina all the way, unwilling to let go of any opportunity, even if it meant exhausting himself.
It was truly unimaginable. Was this the same workaholic who could give up everything for his job?
Martina herself didn’t quite understand what was going on in Benjamin’s mind. She would never think that she was important to him. She could only wonder if he had lost his mind, choosing to search for her and pushing her to this extent instead of enjoying a good
