Chapter 77: Someone is Following, Quick, Escape!
“Maybe it’s because of the novelty. After all, no matter what happened before, I never left his place for such a long time. Someone with such a strong need for control naturally
wouldn’t allow me to leave him,” Martina explained.
Elena listened, somewhat understanding, and ended up nodding her head.
“Maybe it’s really like you said. He’s just too bad. He didn’t know how to cherish you.
when you were by his side before,” Elena said. “Now that you really want to leave, he’s
rushing over. Men are truly brain-damaged creatures. They just love to act pathetic!”
Elena felt that something was off as she spoke so she rubbed her head.
Elena’s eyes brightened, as if she had suddenly realized something. Her voice gained a few decibels as she spoke. “But this doesn’t seem to have much to do with him being so desperate to find you. Even if he has that damn need for control, he wouldn’t go to such
extremes. It’s not Benjamin’s style.”
“By the way, news about your leaving home has already caused quite a stir. I’m afraid. everyone in LA knows about it!” Elena continued, her hands supporting her chin.
Martina was momentarily stunned but quickly dismissed those thoughts. Although there were certain things she couldn’t completely ignore, she didn’t want to get entangled in the gossip and opinions of others. What others thought had nothing to do with her. In their eyes, she was just an unreasonable and foolish woman.
“If they know, they know. So what? Besides those reasons, Benjamin won’t have any other motives. Maybe it’s because of my proud nature that he started looking for me,” Martina said. “In reality, I’m inconsequential to him. At most, I’m briefly remembered by him. After this period of time passes, everything will be fine. He will never care about my well- being. Even if I leave again, he won’t care.”
Elena, however, didn’t believe it. She looked at Martina with her hands supporting her chin, observing the woman in front of her who had visibly lost weight. Her heart ached. “Let’s forget about those unhappy things. You are my best friend, and nothing else. matters. All I want is for you to take good care of yourself. As for the rest… if it doesn’t work out, let’s just leave those people behind. We absolutely cannot let ourselves be as miserable as before. Otherwise, I’ll be heartbroken!” Elena said.
The bond between the two was devoid of any pretense, warming Martina’s heart. It seemed that as long as Elena was by her side, she would feel significantly happier. At least she wouldn’t have the illusion of fighting alone.
According to Martina’s estimation, Benjamin would soon grow tired of her, and that would be her chance to truly start over. Waiting like this was difficult, but Martina was willing to endure if it meant succeeding.
Otherwise, what could she do? Was she just finding trouble for herself? Did she go
Martina forced a smile, barely managing to let it out. If it weren’t for being with Elena, she probably wouldn’t be able to muster such a smile. Because now, Martina could only truly be herself in front of Elena.
The two had a cup of coffee there and then agreed to go to the nearby mall for a stroll.
Although Benjamin had given precise orders and insisted that Leslie must stick close to Martina at all times, it didn’t seem to include prohibiting her from going shopping.
Because Benjamin knew that Martina was already very unhappy, if he continued to exert complete control over her freedom, it would only make her even more sad and distressed.
To improve Martina’s mood, Benjamin deliberately acted this way. In truth, based on his
true nature, he didn’t want this kind of situation to happen.
At this moment, Martina and Elena walked hand in hand on the street, attracting the
attention of many people along the way.
Curious gazes turned their way, wondering why there was always a man not too far behind these two beautiful women. Even though the man held a newspaper in his hands,
pretending to be just coincidentally passing by.
However, Martina’s attractiveness was undeniable. No matter where she appeared, she always drew the attention of many people.
Of course, some people also noticed that there was always someone following Martina closely from behind.
Over time, one or two times could be a coincidence, but for such a long time, that man had been following behind the two beauties.
To be honest, could this still be a coincidence? It’s unlikely that anyone would believe it
if it was said!
There was a girl who appeared cute and carefree. Perhaps sensing the danger that Martina and the other girl were in, she actually bumped into Martina on purpose?
Martina and the girl collided, but the girl showed no intention of apologizing. She impolitely said, “Can’t you watch where you’re going?” and quickly left.
However, at the same time, the girl discreetly slipped a seemingly insignificant note into
Martina was momentarily stunned, not expecting such a situation.
The next second, Elena could be heard complaining beside her, “Wait a minute, you
were the one who bumped into us first. How dare you say we weren’t watching where we’re
Seeing Elena itching to roll up her sleeves and fight with that girl, Martina quickly pulled
her back and said, “Forget it, let’s keep going.”
Then she briskly walked away with Elena, taking a quick glance at the note when Leslie
wasn’t paying attention.
On the paper, there were a few big words written, “Someone is following, run!!”
Especially that striking exclamation mark, it was impossible to ignore.
No wonder that girl intentionally bumped into them. It was because of this.
Unfortunately, Martina could only let down the other person’s good intentions. She knew someone was following them, and she knew exactly who it was.
However, due to the current circumstances, there was no way to make Leslie leave. Besides pretending not to know him, there was no better choice.
Elena also unexpectedly saw the contents of the note and was shocked. She couldn’t
close her mouth for quite some time. “Martina, we
Martina gave Elena a look, indicating that she didn’t want her to bring up these topics. Instead, she took the initiative and walked towards a nearby store. “Elena, didn’t you say you wanted to buy some clothes? Let’s check out this store. I think their clothing style would
Elena’s mind went blank for a moment, and she wanted to refuse, completely missing Martina’s hint. “When did I say I wanted to buy clothes? I meant the thing that just
