Chapter 91: Did He Really Say That?
On the other hand, Adam didn’t go to the hospital or home. Instead, he randomly found
a hotel to stay in.
He couldn’t understand what was going on. Why did Benjamin suddenly become so angry, even tormenting himself like this?
The only thing Adam could be sure of was that Benjamin was blaming someone, but who was he blaming himself for??
Adam racked his brains, and just when he couldn’t come up with a single answer, a figure suddenly flashed in his mind!
“Hold on a moment”, he said to himself, “why do the phrases ‘slapped’ and ‘a gold- digger’ seem to be connected to Martina?”
Upon careful consideration, it was indeed the case! Besides Martina, Adam and the others had never treated any other woman like that. It was because they considered Martina to be a cheap, shameless gold-digger, so they always acted towards her in the harshest possible.
After realizing all of this, Adam suddenly felt terrible about himself and muttered, “How is this possible? Could it be that he really has developed feelings for her?”
Further associating with Benjamin’s recent changes, even if Adam didn’t want to admit it, it seemed like he had to.
No wonder Benjamin never showed much interest in his sister. So, after these years of being together, he’d actually developed an interest in Martina, right?
Adam rubbed his swollen cheeks and couldn’t swallow the indignation no matter what. He indeed didn’t dare to do anything to Benjamin, but it didn’t mean he wouldn’t dare to do something to Martina.
Why did Martina have the right to stay by Benjamin’s side? Was she worthy?
However, Benjamin was actually willing to give up his most valued job and tirelessly search for her.
Various conflicting thoughts mingled together, and Adam furrowed his brows tightly. No, I must find out what’s going on, and see how things really are.”
Adam applied an ice pack to his face and was ready to take action. He took out his phone to message someone.
At the hospital, Martina opened her eyes and noticed the recognizable layout of the hospital ward, although there were some unfamiliar elements.
She moved her hand and realized there was still a needle in it. It hurt a bit whenever
she moved even slightly.
Her thoughts were becoming clearer and she carefully recollected the previous
However, no matter how much she pondered, she couldn’t figure out what was going.
Wasn’t she sleeping in bed? Why did she wake up and find herself in the hospital? Did she sleepwalk or something?
Martina looked around the ward, and besides herself, there was no one else here.
She struggled to sit up, and the needle drew back with her blood.
The next moment, the sound of footsteps could be heard outside the door, and Elena walked briskly into the ward..
She had a lunchbox in her hand, and as soon as she saw Martina awake, she hastened. her pace even more.
She also noticed that Martina’s IV bag had regained a significant amount of blood, which startled Elena. She shouted at the door, raising her voice, “Doctor! Nurse! Hurry! The blood flowed back into the tube!”
Soon, a nurse who was specifically in charge of Martina’s condition walked in. There. were only a few milliliters of liquid left in the IV bag anyway.
With Martina’s consent, the nurse helped her remove the needle earlier, and took away. the remaining IV bag.
“Why am I here?” she asked Elena in a hoarse voice. Her eyes seemed empty, indicating the lingering effects of a fever, and her throat felt incredibly dry.
Perhaps because Elena was the first person she saw, Martina’s mood improved quite at
However, there was still one thing Martina didn’t understand.
She thought to herself, “I was clearly sleeping at the Benjamin’s villa, so why am I in the hospital, and… why is Elena here? It can’t be that Elena forcefully entered the villa and brought me out to the hospital.”
Elena immediately saw through the emotions in Martina’s eyes and held her hand. “Martina, you scared me,” said Elena, anxiously. “I know what you’re thinking. You had a high fever, around 103°F, and It was Benjamin who brought you to the hospital.”
“It was also Benjamin who called me and asked me to come here to accompany you. When I arrived at the hospital entrance, I happened to see him leaving in a car, probably busy with work.”
Elena said a lot.
From these words, Martina finally understood the situation. So, last night when she had a fever, it was Benjamin who noticed it and brought her here.
No one knew what mindset Benjamin had when he chose to have Elena come and
Perhaps it was due to guilt over what happened before? Or maybe it was impatience
But no matter the reason, to put it bluntly, it didn’t really matter to Martina, and she
didn’t want to care..
Seeing that Martina was not in a good mood, Elena proactively poured her a glass of
She also took out the food from the lunchbox, which smelled good and definitely wasn’t
made by Elena herself.
“Anyway, you should eat something for the sake of your health! You can’t continue
torturing yourself like this. Who are you trying to scare?” Elena reproached, her tone filled
Speaking of which, she found it strange that Benjamin seemed to have genuinely changed in some way.
And he even said something before leaving.
Martina took a few sips of the porridge, but it didn’t taste like anything because of her
Seeing Elena remained silent, she asked, “What are you thinking? If you have work to do, go ahead and do it. You don’t have to worry about me.”
It was just a fever anyway, and it had already returned to normal.
Martina didn’t think she was so fragile that she needed constant attention.
Regarding what happened last night, she didn’t remember anything, so naturally, she had no idea what she might have said to Benjamin in her dazed state. Perhaps that was why Benjamin didn’t want her to see him as the first person when she woke up.
Because Benjamin knew very well that Martina only seemed to revert to her previous self when she wasn’t fully conscious. But once she woke up, she would go back to being someone who didn’t love him, was Impatient with him, and didn’t want to see him.
The contrast between these two states was too significant for Benjamin to accept.
Elena snapped out of her thoughts and shook her head. “Work’s been alright. Not too busy these past few days. Anyway, there’s something I want to talk to you about,” Elena
Martina put down her food and stared unwaveringly at Elena. “Just say it. Do we still
need to be polite with each other?”
“Well, the thing is, when I arrived earlier, I saw Benjamin, you know,” Elena smiled and
said. “Before he left, he told me something. He said that you can continue working at the
studio if you want to.”
“What?” Martina was taken aback. She hadn’t expected Elena to suddenly bring this. up.
Martina raised an eyebrow and asked, “He said that on his own initiative?”
“Yes!” Elena nodded vigorously. “I had actually intended to express my frustration about
him causing you to fall ill, but when he said that, it left me completely speechless!”
