Chapter 94: The Romantic Restaurant
Elizabeth grew angrier as she thought about it and couldn’t help but approach Martinal directly.
“Never dream that just because my son spoils you now, you can become his wife, Martina!” she snapped. “I’ll tell you what, my son’s future wife that I have chosen will always. be Amy. No matter how hard you try, it’s all in vain!”
Elizabeth must have been truly furious and mad, or else she wouldn’t have spoken
these words directly in front of Martina and Elena.
Elena couldn’t bear it anymore. What kind of days were these? How could Martina have endured all those past years as a punching bag!? Both the butler and Benjamin’s mother could easily insult Martina!
Were they too confident in their own status or too disdainful of Martina’s position? Or perhaps it was because of Benjamin’s inaction that others had such misconceptions and dared to insult Martina?
Elena now understood why Martina had finally made up her mind to give up. If she were in the same situation, she definitely wouldn’t be able to endure even a day. This was not a life that any normal person could accept. Being with Benjamin was incredibly difficult.
Martina grew impatient and decided to take her phone and call Benjamin. Initially, she wanted Benjamin to hear what her mother had said. She also wanted Benjamin to feel more. disgusted with herself. After all, this time she had filed a complaint involving Benjamin’s mother, and Benjamin definitely couldn’t tolerate that.
However, to her surprise, the sound of Benjamin’s phone ringing came from outside the door. When did this man come back? He didn’t even make a sound with his footsteps?
Martina opened her mouth a bit, looking somewhat surprised.
However, it was evident that Elizabeth hadn’t finished uttering those harsh words, so she couldn’t take them back in time. They were heard loud and clear by Benjamin.
Benjamin’s expression turned sour. If the person saying those things wasn’t his own mother, he would surely make her pay the price.
Because now he also understood that it was due to his past inaction that Martina had suffered so much. Now that he finally managed to bring Martina back, he naturally wanted to improve their relationship as much as possible and be willing to make additional efforts.
Elizabeth appeared flustered. She never expected that the words she had spoken would be overheard by Benjamin. In this way, wouldn’t all the pretense and efforts she had made before be in vain?
Elizabeth nervously turned around and asked, “Son… Why did you come back?”
Chapter 94. The Romantic Restaurant
Benjamin didn’t say anything; he simply walked straight toward Martina and apologized, “I’m sorry.”
His meaning was “I’m sorry for my mother’s behavior.” and “I’m sorry I arrived a bit late.”
If he had come in time, perhaps he wouldn’t have given Elizabeth the chance to say those things.
Martina turned sideways and intentionally hid behind Elena, saying, “You don’t need to apologize to me. You just need to take her away.”
Benjamin also had a general understanding of why Martina didn’t want to live in that house. It turned out that she had been going through such difficulties there.
No one knew what exactly Benjamin had said to his own mother. But Elizabeth gradually fell silent. After that, he assured Martina that Elizabeth would never appear in front of her like before.
Actually, whether or not these assurances were made didn’t matter to Martina. She didn’t have any expectations of Benjamin, and she certainly didn’t expect him to do anything for her.
On the other hand, Elena, who was forced to witness this whole spectacle, didn’t know what to say. The more she watched, the sadder Elena felt. Her dear best friend should have a better life, but she was being treated as an accessory to Benjamin and constantly harassed by so many people.
Was all of this really her own fault? It didn’t seem that way.
It was because more people had biased views of Martina and deliberately made things. difficult for her that all those subsequent events occurred.
Regardless of the circumstances, it was truly difficult for her friend.
Very soon, it was dinner time.
Perhaps due to the oppressive atmosphere at home, Benjamin suggested going out to eat. It also happened to be an opportunity to send Elena back home.
At first, Martina was unwilling to agree. But after some thought, she realized that it would be better to go out and have a casual meal rather than eating at home and having Elizabeth together, whom she didn’t want to see. At least that way, her mind could be more at ease. So she changed her mind.
Leslie was very relieved that he didn’t arrive too late. Otherwise, the scolding from the boss would be the least of his worries. He might end up having his wages docked for several months.
In the restaurant, Benjamin took Martina and Elena, the third wheel, to have a meal.
It was a five-star restaurant where the food tasted quite good. It was a place Martina used to really like.
It was also the restaurant that Martina had requested Benjamin many times to come. and taste together. Unfortunately, at that time, Benjamin was about to go abroad and didn’t have any time, so they couldn’t come together for a meal. Now, they were finally making up
Elena was unaware of the complicated reasons for coming to this place, but she found
the restaurant to be somewhat peculiar.
How should she put it? It seemed like most of the people eating here were couples,
one man and one woman. She realized that she was the third wheel. If it weren’t for her
concern for the well-being of her best friend, honestly, she would have left right away.
Leslie silently sat opposite Elena, sitting on the side with her.
Benjamin and Martina sat together because this table only had four seats to begin with
so Martina didn’t have a choice.
Benjamin ordered some dishes that he thought Martina would love, or rather, dishes
that he believed she loved.
It was all about being spicy, but the truth was that Benjamin couldn’t handle spicy food very well.
Recently, Martina’s body was a bit weak, and she wasn’t suitable for consuming so
Leslie was about to say something to stop it, but kept quiet because of his boss’s
Later, it was Elena who spoke up and said, “Wait a minute, Mr. Walker. Even if Martinal
loves spicy food, now it’s not the time. How can she eat so much spice right after being
discharged from the hospital?”
Benjamin realized it belatedly.
To be honest, he wasn’t good at taking care of others or paying attention to their preferences. But now he was willing to learn. He learned from the household nanny about
Martina’s favorite food.
The dishes he selected were supposed to be ones that Martina might like, but he
