Chapter 89: Punishing Him Tit for Tat
Because Amy felt embarrassed and wanted to create an illusion that her relationship with Benjamin was still decent.
As a result, this illusion actually deceived Adam.
It made Adam mistakenly believe that his sister and Benjamin had a good relationship. Otherwise, how could she be living in Benjamin’s villa?
It should be noted that in that household, apart from Martina, his sister was the second woman who could reside there. Wasn’t that special enough?
Unfortunately, reality slapped Adam hard in the face.
Even though Adam felt a hint of humiliation deep inside, he still followed Benjamin’s intention and replied, “I won’t make thoughtless remarks anymore. If you have no interest in my sister, then she will remain just my sister.”
Fortunately, Adam’s mind was still clear. If he had remained stubborn and unrepentant, the consequences could have been even more severe.
However, despite this, Benjamin’s anger could not be quelled. Just the thought of the woman at home growing increasingly disgusted, impatient, and even wishing for his disappearance, intensified his fury.
He had the intention of not letting anyone involved in this matter go unpunished, especially those who had mistreated Martina in the past while pretending to be innocent in front of him.
According to Simon’s investigation, on the day Martina left, Adam had slapped her. Even though Benjamin had been angry before, even when he had arguments with Martina, he had never thought of harming her in the slightest.
In fact, after every argument, he would calm down and select gifts for Martina as a prelude to reconciliation.
Moreover, every time he was angry, Martina would fearlessly stand by his side, even if she had suffered countless grievances, never once revealing them to anyone.
And yet, she had been slapped by Adam. Even if she didn’t speak up, it didn’t mean that Benjamin was unaware of the truth.
So just when Adam thought this matter could finally be put behind them, Benjamin issued another command, “Adam, how long have we known each other?”
Hearing this question, Adam became very frustrated. He didn’t understand what Benjamin was up to today and why he suddenly brought this up.
Nevertheless, Adam spoke honestly, “If I remember correctly, it should be at least 18
18 years? That was indeed a long time. How many 18-year periods did one have in their lifetime?
Perhaps it was because they had known each other for a long time that Benjamin refrained from taking action himself. “I heard that you slapped her, so let’s consider it settled after ten slaps.”
Benjamin’s words were veiled, leaving Adam puzzled. He pondered for a while but couldn’t figure out who this person mentioned by Benjamin could be. Was it her or him?
The smile on Adam’s face was almost about to crumble. “Ben
Before he could finish calling out his name, Benjamin shot him a cold glare, forcing Adam to quickly change his address.”Mr. Walker, are you joking with me? Do you want me to slap myself ten times?”
Benjamin tapped his knee absentmindedly, producing a dull sound. His entire handsome face blended into the dim lighting, making him appear even more distant. With just a faint gaze, he could make anyone surrender involuntarily. His terrifying presence was suffocating. Even a fleeting glance could instill immense fear in one’s heart.
“What do you think?” Benjamin responded with a question, but his meaning was already clear. He never joked with anyone, not even friends.
Adam clenched his teeth, unable to understand why Benjamin seemed angry today, seemingly supporting someone else. Who could this “her” be?
Seeing that Adam remained motionless, seemingly testing his patience, Benjamin waved his hand towards Leslie. “Or perhaps let my people handle it?”
Adam was well aware of Leslie’s immense strength. If they were to engage in a physical altercation, Adam’s face would undoubtedly end up looking like a bloated balloon.
In order to expedite the healing of the injuries on his face, whether Adam liked it or not, he had to swallow his pride and proactively slap himself on the left and right cheeks.
The sound of slaps echoed, causing everyone to wince in sympathy. Even though Adam. had reduced the force, it was still impactful. He knew that if he attempted to deceive or play around, the consequences would be severe.
To avoid being beaten half to death by Leslie, Adam had to be tough on himself.
After enduring ten slaps, Adam’s cheeks became swollen, bearing several Imprints of five fingers. His voice sounded muffled, perhaps due to the swelling of his mouth. “Mr. Walker, are you satisfied now?”
Benjamin remained silent, shifting his gaze to another person. “You, said she’s a gold digger, right?”
With just a simple question, that person instantly understood Benjamin’s Intention.
Could it be that he wanted tit for tat?
On that night, Martina slept relatively well, at least without constant nightmares. However, Benjamin remained awake throughout the night because he took revenge on every person who had bullied Martina.
As those people departed from the private room, their defeated demeanor akin to that of dogs, Adam’s face ballooned, his body drenched, and he endured verbal abuse.
One person had dirty water on himself, emitting a foul odor. Another person was covered in blood, having endured some kind of devilish torment.
Benjamin sniffed the smell of alcohol and filth unintentionally staining his own body, and his pent-up anger burned fiercely.
If Martina, who was familiar with Benjamin, had seen him in that state, she would have known that his emotions were getting out of control.
At this moment, Benjamin only desired to return home urgently, even if it meant just catching a glimpse of her from a distance.
Leslie looked back at his boss’s figure with a sense of dread.
That was just how the boss was. Even though he wanted to seek justice for Miss Martinez, he didn’t want her to know.
It seemed that there was a deep misunderstanding between the two of them. If the misunderstanding wasn’t resolved and they only secretly engaged in such actions, it wouldn’t have any effect at all.
Leslie silently shook his head. After all, he was just a subordinate, and some things were not suitable to be said directly. He believed that the boss was no longer as stubborn as before and would eventually figure things out.
He believed that there would come a day when Miss Martinez and the boss would see through the clouds and find clarity.
Misunderstandings were not everlasting.
