Jared traveled day and night after receiving the news so as to meet Gwen. Zach did not stop him from meeting her. “She’s in the bedroom. Go in and tell her everything you want to say because the doctor said that she might not make it through the night.” “Gwen, Gwen…” Jared cried as he staggered into the room. “Gwen, Gwen.” Gwen had already dozed off, but she opened her eyes after she heard the voice, which she had not heard for a long time. “Jared, why are you here?” Jared leaned on her bed as he cried bitterly. “Gwen…” Gwen tried hard to open her eyes as she was weary. When she looked at him, old memories flashed in front of her eyes. When she was 12 years old, her dad passed away after saving Grandpa Crawford. Hence, Gwen met Jared, and she was taken into the Crawford family by Grandpa Crawford, where she began learning and growing with Jared. Gwen’s first awakening of love was when she was 15 years old. She had a crush on Jared, who was three years older than her, and
“Strip off her clothes!” Inside a damp and dark prison, a man ordered coldly while standing by the only window in a cell. Three prison guards with evil smiles approached a beautiful woman, who was hiding in a corner. Gwen White kept backing away with a pale face until she hit the wall and could not retreat anymore. “Don’t, don’t come near me…” Two of the prison guards exchanged glances and pounced on her to press down one of her hands each. “Let go of me! Let go of me!” Gwen struggled with all her might, but before she could break free from the prison guards who were already pressing her down, the third guard ripped off her blouse’s buttons at once. She held her clothes tightly while she pushed the prison guards away, but how was she a match for three big men? When Gwen White was pushed to the ground, the men, who reeked of sweat, took the opportunity to touch her all over. Gwen shouted at the top of her lungs, “Jared Crawford! I’m your wife! Are you out of your mind?
It was as though a piece of juicy meat was thrown to a pack of evil wolves. “Jared, Jared, save me… “Get lost! Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me, ah —” Gwen White really felt like dying at that instant. She tried her best to hold on to her remaining clothes and cried out to Jared Crawford for help. The prisoners from the other cells could not stand her hopeless cries. Jared kept a straight face even after looking at her. “Experience how terrified and fearful Janice was feeling at that moment. Oh, no, perhaps you’ll enjoy the process. After all, you’ve probably slept with many men.” He turned and left after saying that! A click was heard as he closed the cell’s door behind him, and he disappeared from her sight. He really left Gwen with the three men! The three prison guards became more barbarous after Jared left. “Your skin’s so tender that water might flow out if I pinch you.” Gwen crawled toward the door with all her might. Even if she were to die, she would never be
‘I despise you for being dirty.’ The words still lingered in Gwen’s mind after Jared left. She was already very pale, but her face became as white as a sheet. A woman’s gloating voice was suddenly heard outside the door at that moment. “Tsk, tsk, tsk, how pitiful you are to be called ‘dirty’ by your husband. If I were you, I would’ve jumped out of the window to solve the problem.” Gwen could not be more familiar with the voice. She clenched the bedsheet. “Why are you here?” It was Janice Sanders! “Of course I’m here to see you,” Janice answered with a smile, “I heard Jared tortured you in prison. I’m so sorry that you ended up like this, it was all because I slandered you in front of him.” ‘She’s even admitting that she slandered me!’ Gwen shivered at the thought of the three disgusting prison guards, who took advantage of her. “Janice, there’s no grudge between you and me, why do you have to cause me trouble?!” ‘No grudge? ‘She doesn’t know how many tricks I’ve t
Janice knocked her head hard on the ground and said, “I swear I’ll never disturb your lives again, Miss White. Please don’t complain to Mr. Crawford, and please don’t ask him to retract Jared’s right of inheritance. It’s all my fault…” Gwen had no idea what she was talking about! Her head ached, and she got off her bed shakily while putting her hand on the wound. Before she had even touched Janice, Janice suddenly raised her hand to slap herself and fell to one side. “Ah —” “Bam!” The ward’s door was suddenly opened, and Jared, who had somehow returned after leaving, rushed in. He pushed Gwen away before she could even explain. “Gwen White, how dare you bully Janice again!” Gwen fell to the ground, and her forehead was bleeding so much that she almost passed out. Janice sobbed. “Jared, I love you, I love you so much that I’m willing to die, but Miss White said she’ll ask your dad to retract your right of inheritance if we’re still together. I can’t watch you lose everythi
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
