Chapter 95: Clearly a Beating
Regardless, she had no intention of staying in Benjamin’s home, so she didn’t care.
about not eating.
However, the more she showed her indifference, the more guilt Benjamin felt deep
inside. He realized how little he truly knew about Martina. No wonder she had endured so
much suffering in his home..
With the thought, Benjamin had all the spicy dishes removed and replaced them with
He looked at Martina in the eyes and solemnly said, “I wasn’t good at taking care of
others before, but I will try my best to learn from now on.”
Martina felt a bit awkward. She had never imagined a day when she would switch roles
with Benjamin. She didn’t know what to say, so she chose to eat quietly, pretending she hadn’t heard anything.
On the other hand, Elena’s gaze kept wandering between the two. It seemed that Benjamin was genuinely becoming more and more attentive to Martina. Perhaps there were
some genuine feelings involved?
But Elena couldn’t understand. This kind of infatuation shouldn’t just suddenly appear; it
should develop over time.
Why didn’t Benjamin have these feelings in the beginning? If he had treated Martina the same way back then, how could they be facing a breakup now?
Elena couldn’t comprehend the fact that Benjamin was, in terms of romantic
relationships, even more insensitive than the average guy.
He had gotten used to being taken care of by Martina and believed that she would never leave, so he never felt the need to restrain himself in terms of his character.
He never thought about how to take care of Martina because, in his eyes, he took care of all aspects of her life and there shouldn’t be any problems.
If it wasn’t for Martina’s sudden transformation and her desperate desire to leave, perhaps Benjamin would have never realized the multitude of problems that arose later.
Martina devoured her meal voraciously, not even raising her head, and swiftly polished
off the food. Her stomach was incredibly satiated, filled to the brim.
Her exquisite face remained indifferent, as if she didn’t care about her surroundings or
who she was dining with.
Elena felt quite awkward, as she hadn’t eaten much throughout the whole meal.
Just as they were about to leave, they inadvertently caught sight of someone.
That person was accompanied by a woman who held an ice pack in her hand, occasionally rubbing it against the man’s face.
“Mr. Paloma, what happened to your face? How did it get so swollen?”
Adam naturally didn’t want to admit that he had punched himself in the face.
He could only come up with a lie, “I wasn’t paying attention while driving and accidentally fell, hitting my face.”
The woman seemed to believe him, adding to his relief. She tenderly rubbed his cheek.
again, saying, “Oh, my poor baby. Please be more careful next time. If anything happens to
you, I would be heartbroken.”
Although Adam’s cheek was still a bit swollen, it was still recognizable.
Martina was very surprised. What was going on?
How could Adam’s face suddenly become like this? She didn’t believe Adam’s nonsense.
Tripping and ending up with a face like this? That was impossible. It looked more like. the result of being punched, kicked, or slapped.
For some reason, when Martina thought of this possibility, her gaze instinctively fell on Benjamin. But upon further consideration, it seemed impossible. After all, Benjamin and Adam had been brothers for over a decade. It couldn’t be that Benjamin was the one who.
laid a hand on him.
Adam was holding the woman and looking for an empty table to dine, but
coincidentally, his eyes met with Benjamin and Martina. He felt embarrassed and wanted to
turn away, but the woman with him, who didn’t understand the situation, looked back.
“Adam, what’s wrong? Didn’t we agree to have dinner here?” the woman asked.
How could Adam have expected to encounter Benjamin in this place?
It had been less than a day since they last saw each other, and last night’s events were
still fresh in their minds.
Adam felt embarrassed and just wanted to leave, not daring to even greet Benjamin. But Martina had no intention of letting him off so easily. She wanted to test Benjamin’s tolerance towards her now.
If Benjamin started to dislike her because of this, it would be the perfect opportunity for her to leave without any constraint.
The process might be somewhat bloody, but as long as the outcome was favorable, it
would be fine.
If Benjamin reluctantly endured it, she could also take this opportunity to seek revenge. She had long sald that one day she would pay back that slap, and she hadn’t forgotten the slap from before.
sadly a Hantina.
Elena also recognized Adam, whose face was swollen, and she knew that his
relationship with Martina wasn’t good. So she took the chance to taunt him, “Adarn, what
happened to you? How did you manage to make yourself look like this?”
“Could it be that you’ve been fooling around with too many women outside, and they found out, leading to a gang attack?” she added sarcastically.
Surprisingly, that possibility wasn’t far-fetched. Adam was always a playboy, and there were hardly any women who could stay by his side for a full week. Most of them lasted only two or three days before being replaced. The current woman by his side was obviously a recent addition.
The woman had the look of someone who had undergone plastic surgery-although beautiful, she had a somewhat artificial appearance.
Adam couldn’t bear it any longer and turned his head back to Elena, saying, “Elena, watch your words! It’s none of your business!”
Benjamin remained silent.
Martina stood up and casually approached Adam’s side. Due to Benjamin’s presence, she wasn’t worried that Adam would lose his temper directly.
She extended her good-looking hand and poked Adam’s face. Her strength was not light at all, and she almost poked tears out of Adam’s eyes.
With a fake surprise, Martina asked, “Adam, what happened to your face? Was it really caused by a woman hitting you? It seems quite Intense.”
She then shifted her attention to the woman accompanying Adarn and remarked, “Adam seems to always attract many beautiful women. You should be careful. Your relationship might not last more than three days.”
Martina’s intention was good, but the other woman didn’t appreciate it.
“Adam loves me. Who are you to interfere? Mind your own business! I guarantee that Adam and I will be together for a long time!” the woman retorted.
“Well, good luck with that,” Martina rolled her eyes in response. “But between me and your so-called boyfriend, there’s a bit of a personal grudge. I kindly ask you to step aside.”
The woman furrowed her brow, unsure of what Martina was planning to do. However, for the sake of safety, she could only take two steps back.
