Gwen White woke up feeling pain. She frowned as she opened her eyes and turned to look. It turned out that a nurse was inserting a needle for an IV infusion into her vein. “Mrs. Crawford, you’re finally awake. You’ve been unconscious the whole day.” The nurse sighed a breath of relief. Gwen had not fully regained her consciousness. She felt a splitting headache and as if her limbs were out of joint. That said, she moved her pale lips and asked, “What happened to me…” “I was about to ask you, why do you have such a big wound on your head? You needed five stitches.” Gwen recalled that she was hit by Janice Sanders. On top of that, not only did Jared ignore her when she bled so much, but he also believed she hurt Janice, and he wanted to strangle her to death… ‘What a joke.’ Gwen twitched her mouth and felt a chill in her heart. The nurse then added, “Luckily, you managed to ring for the nurse, so we were able to hurry over in time. If we were slightly later, you’ll be i
Once Jared Crawford returned to the villa after work, he asked the butler while he headed upstairs, “Did that woman make things difficult for Janice?” The butler knew he meant Gwen, so he answered softly, “No, Mrs. Crawford didn’t do anything.” “At least she’s sensible,” Jared said and wondered, ‘If she still doesn’t know where she stands, I won’t spare her like I did the last time!’ “Mr. Crawford, actually… Mrs. Crawford isn’t as bad as you think she is, she’s very nice to the servants,” the butler expressed hesitantly. The old butler, who was over half a century old, could not understand why his boss was not fond of Gwen when she was such a gentle, kind, and good-natured person. ‘She has been married into the Crawford family for a year, but Mr. Crawford never treated her well. On the other hand, Jared sneered. “She’s hypocritical!” ‘She’s a woman who deliberately planned to get married to me but cheated on me during our wedding night. How good of a person can she be?
Mrs. White said, “You’ve been married to Jared for a year, but there’s still no news of your pregnancy. You must seize the opportunity.” There was a hint of bitterness in Gwen’s smile. ‘Having a child? ‘Jared doesn’t love me and firmly believes that I cheated on him. Besides, he despises me for being dirty and will never lay a finger on me. How can I have his child? ‘A child… He and Janice do have one.’ Moreover, Gwen was no longer passionate about Jared after the incidents at the prison and hospital. She was even considering letting him go and setting herself free too… “Gwen, what are you thinking?” Mrs. White called out softly to Gwen, whose mind had drifted far away. Gwen flashed a smile at her mom. “Mom, Jared and I already have a plan. We won’t be having a child these two years; we haven’t had enough of spending time together with just the two of us.” “Is that so? I just feel that it’s better to have a child since you’re married into the Crawford family — a rich
Gwen White was forced to stop. She asked plainly, “Do you have something to say?” Jared Crawford was in a terrible mood after thinking about her the whole day. “Didn’t you see me here? Who let you ignore me?” ‘Am I supposed to say ‘good afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Crawford’?’ Gwen held in the feeling of disgust and asked again, “Do you have something to say?” Jared ordered coldly, “Come and eat this bowl of bird’s nest.” ‘You look so awful like you’ll be easily blown away, don’t embarrass the Crawford family!’ He thought. Gwen was stunned because the bird’s nest was obviously for Janice. She pointed at herself in disbelief. “Are you asking me to eat Janice’s leftovers?” Jared could never say kind words to Gwen, so he pulled a long face and responded, “Janice doesn’t like to eat it. I’m rewarding you with it because I think highly of you, so you better not be ungrateful!” ‘He actually said he thinks highly of me when he’s asking me to finish the remains of Janice’s food?
Gwen still woke up early the next day, and she was ready to visit her mom at the hospital again. When she went downstairs, she was surprised to see Janice sitting on the couch. It was evident that Janice was waiting for her because Janice spoke as soon as she appeared, “Gwen White, do you want to know how Jared started liking me?” Gwen ignored her and continued heading toward the door. However, Janice chuckled behind her back. “It’s related to you. Do you remember when the club organized a barbeque event on an island five years ago? It was when we were third-year university students.” ‘That…’ Gwen could not help but stop. Janice slowly approached her while touching her stomach, which was still flat. “During the event, Jared ate some dirty seafood, so he vomited, had diarrhea, and was unconscious due to a fever. Nobody brought medicine, and we couldn’t leave because of the high tide, so everyone didn’t know what to do. “In the end, you risked your life by going ashore in
“Child, my child…” Blood began flowing down Janice’s thighs, so Jared quickly dashed toward her. A rare look of panic was seen on his face. “Janice!” “Jared, our child…” Janice looked at Gwen tearfully. “Gwen, just come at me if you’re unhappy, why did you have to hurt my child? He’s innocent…” Gwen did not need to explain because Jared saw her just now. Jared’s face darkened and he immediately slapped Gwen across her face. “I was just thinking I’ve probably misunderstood you before, but it turns out that you’re a wicked woman indeed!” Gwen twitched her mouth without saying a word, but her eyes were ashen. Since Janice was bleeding terribly, Jared quickly carried her to head to the hospital. He managed to utter before he left, “Lock up that woman!” In the hospital, the doctor quickly rushed Janice into the emergency room, whereas Jared stood covered in blood outside the surgery room. His face was as cold as ice. After an unknown period of time, the surgery room’s door w
Gwen was utterly shocked when her chest was exposed. “What do you want to do?!” “I want you to repay me with a child!” Jared had completely lost his mind. He stared at the woman under him with bloodshot eyes, then tore her clothes, and opened her legs wide! Jared had never touched Gwen throughout their marriage. While Gwen had thought about doing it with him, she never pictured it to be like how it was at the moment! Gwen exerted all her force to push him away, but her hands were quickly tied to the bed frame with a tie! “Jared, let me go! You can’t do this to me, I refuse to!” She was really afraid of him. “You have no idea what Janice did. She’s not as good as you think she is, and she’s the one who’s actually full of lies. She lied to you, she’s not… “No, no, ah —” Jared violated her dry body like a sharp blade! At that instant, Gwen was drowned in an immense pain that hit her like a tide. “Up till now, not only are you unrepentant, but you even dare to slander Jan
Gwen was unaware of the time even when she woke up. She lay on the bed in a humiliating state, and an indescribable smell filled the air because her body was still covered in semen and blood. She almost thought she was a corpse. When Gwen recalled everything that happened before she passed out, she closed her eyes powerlessly. Tears rolled down the corner of her eyes as she felt like her heart had just been cut by a knife. Not knowing how long she had been lying in bed, the sky turned dark then bright again out the window. When Gwen finally gathered her strength, she got off her bed and staggered into the bathroom to clean the traces left by Jared on her body. As soon as she came out of the bathroom, Gwen saw an uninvited guest sitting on the small couch. It was Janice Sanders! Janice smirked. “Gwen, I only haven’t seen you for a few days, why have you become like this? You look terrible.” Gwen felt as calm as dead water when she saw her. She did not even want to ask wh
