Chapter 82: She Had Always Wanted to Break Free
His fingertips curled slightly, but in the end, he simply held Martina’s hand again, as if it were glued and couldn’t be pulled apart.
Amy still seemed clueless about the situation, attempting to seek some kind of presence. “Benjamin… Elizabeth asked me to come back these two days and accompany you… cough, accompany her…”
At a time like this, Amy actually said such words, truly fearless. She just wanted to
intentionally make Martina feel uncomfortable, preferably embarrassed enough to leave.
Every time Martina would use the method of running away from home, forcing. Benjamin to personally bring her back time and time again.
Benjamin even had to be tolerant towards her in various ways, which had long annoyed
Initially, Benjamin might not have paid much attention to Amy’s presence; he was more concerned about whether Martina was upset. But who knew that Amy wouldn’t stop.
Benjamin narrowed his eyes dangerously and said, “If you don’t stay at home and recover properly, why did you come to my house?”
In a split second, Amy was cast aside, completely disregarded and her feelings were not taken into consideration at all.
Even if Amy refused to admit it, she couldn’t help but acknowledge it.
With teary eyes, she glanced at Benjamin, and tears once again streamed down her face. “Benjamin… I just want to be closer to you. Can’t that be allowed?”
Under normal circumstances, Benjamin would likely have ignored Amy completely. without even uttering a single word.
But things were different now. Benjamin didn’t want to upset Martina, who had a strong desire to move on and leave the past behind. Naturally, Benjamin made every effort to comfort her, viewing it as the ups and downs of life.
“Do you really consider yourself part of my family?’ Benjamin asked coldly. “From now on, keep your distance from Martina. Otherwise, I can’t guarantee how I’ll react, regardless of my relationship with your brother.”
This should be the most words Benjamin had ever said to Amy. However, it also completely erased any relationship between the two of them.
No matter what Army wanted to say, it was as if her words had lost their meaning in an instant. The weight of her thoughts and desires seemed inconsequential in the face of Benjamin’s resolute declaration. It was a definitive moment that shattered any remaining

relevance she held in their relationship. Her voice became muted, her thoughts silenced, and she was left with a profound sense of insignificance.
It was just a deliberate act from Amy, aimed at showcasing their supposedly good relationship. Previously, Benjamin didn’t respond because he deemed it unnecessary and
didn’t want to pay attention to it.
He had always been a reserved person, and in his world, the only woman who occupied
his entire world was Martina. As for other women, they didn’t even qualify as passing
acquaintances in his eyes.
But the current situation was different. Benjamin didn’t want to see any discontent in
Martina’s heart. So what if he had really taken action?
Amy collapsed onto the ground, appearing completely vulnerable as if she had fallen
She pursed her lips, pretending to be strong as she wiped away her tears.
Unfortunately, it had no effect, and in the next second, tears streamed down her face like a
river bursting its banks.
She questioned, “Benjamin, is it because Martina doesn’t like me that you’re treating me this way?”
“I know I can’t compare to her in any aspect, I know I’m not her match in any way. I just wanted to give you a piece of my heart and make you happy.”
“I never expected it to backfire like this. If that’s the case, I’ll try my best not to appear in front of you in the future, as long as Martina doesn’t find me bothersome.”
At this moment, Amy’s words were nothing but bitch talk,, a perfect example of double- dealing.
Elena was on the verge of vomiting as she listened to it, and she even narrowed her eyes and made gestures in response. “Oh my, Paloma, who do you think will listen to you. with this act? Weren’t you just being arrogant a moment ago? You even insulted my friend, calling her a gold-digger!”
Amy’s face immediately turned pale, and she seemed genuinely flustered. She didn’t expect Elena to suddenly speak up at this moment.
Elena seemed to have some pent-up anger and continued to criticize, “You’ve been provoking and even started the physical confrontation! And now you’re pretending to be a pitiful little lamb. Who are you trying to fool? Is this the character of the Paloma family?”
“I don’t think you and your brother are good people, and it’s no wonder your health is so weak. It’s retribution!” Elena kept on ranting with her hands on her waist until her mouth went dry, and finally, she stopped talking.
As Elena’s words continued, Benjamin’s expression became increasingly grim, and Martina, who stood beside Benjamin, keenly sensed that something was wrong.
She wanted to stop Elena from speaking further, but Elena was completely oblivious to
Martina’s subtle hints.
Martina lowered her voice and called out, finally putting a stop to Elena.
With a single glance, Elena saw Benjamin’s pitch-black expression, and she then took a
step back in fear.
“Well, Mr. Walker, what’s with that look? Do you think I’ve gone too far?” she asked, trying to support her best friend.
Benjamin was indeed angry, but it wasn’t because of Elena’s words. It was only now that he truly understood the kind of life Martina had lived before. He realized that, in private, everyone treated Martina the same way-calling her a gold digger and criticizing her for trying to become something she wasn’t, like a duck trying to become a swan.
If every duck could easily become a swan, wouldn’t that mean any woman could easily
come into his life?
Not every woman would be treated by him in such a manner, just because that woman
Benjamin now had a clear understanding of his own thoughts, and the anger in his eyes was impossible to dissipate.
At the moment when Amy felt truly terrified, Benjamin issued his final command, “Ten slaps on her face, then send her back to the Paloma family.”
Amy was filled with extreme horror. What?! Benjamin actually ordered her to receive ten slaps on the face in front of so many people!? Not only would it be very painful, but it would also be humiliating. If such a thing really happened, how could she live in her circle. in the future?
It was likely that this matter would quickly spread to everyone’s ears. By then, even if those people didn’t say anything in front of her, they would surely harbor thoughts and calculations in their hearts. It would be impossible for them to regard her as the once prestigious Miss Paloma of the Paloma family!
For Amy, this was a situation more difficult to bear than death.
